IN PRAISE OF ASTUTE YOUTH

A very astute 14-year-old girl, known as SewerNugget Soph on YouTube, recently raised the ire of the YouTube “thought police” when she made, among other things, the following statement: "It's morality laundering, they put the indefensible together with the legitimate so that you can't scrutinise it without being called a homophobe.”

Obviously her rant was against the LGBT+ ideologues, a particular class (as we have all observed) that is so sacrosanct as to be afforded enviable protection both by law and by global giants such as Amazon, Facebook and YouTube (a Google subsidiary). Amazon, for example, refuses to sell or distribute any material that is critical of the LGBT lifestyle by promoting traditional marriage and family values.

My main focus here, however, is on the concept advanced by “SewerNugget Soph,” of “morality laundering.” Again how absolutely astute an observation by a 14-year-old. Now, I have no way of knowing if she borrowed this concept from others; but original or borrowed, it squarely hits the nail on the head. Time and time again we have seen defenders of LGBT ideology equate opposition to same-sex activities as being equal to racial bigotry, or claim that denying persons legal and moral support to homosexual marriage or transgenders’ use of heterosexual-designated restrooms is on par with denying non-white persons their civil-right access to certain seats on the bus or free access to non-segregated schools or restrooms. This is morality laundering indeed, and the kind that really pierces deep into the gut of those of us of “colour.”

And the 14-year-old philosopher is right. “They” have cleverly lumped the indefensible with the legitimate in such a way as to make right look wrong and wrong look right. And woe to anyone who dares question either their ideology or morality. (Pastor Alson Ebanks)
