Singer Taylor Swift increasingly has been pushing leftist ideology, and her most recent foray the political sphere not only sees her take a leftist tack, it sees her completely misconstrue Christianity and embrace a double-standard about her own position on government and “protection.”
Andrea Morris and Benjamin Gill report for CBN News that the hugely successful pop singer offered her unique form of secular sermonizing through a Netflix documentary “Miss Americana”, which acts as an extension of her “courageous” revelations about personal political views.
“In the aftermath of President Trump's election, Swift has not only been speaking out about political candidates, she's even been using her music to promote a pro-LGBT agenda. For example, Swift's rainbow-clad music video last year for her single, ‘You Need to Calm Down,’ is an ode to the LGBTQ community and takes jabs at those who disagree with the lifestyle.”
And what better way to follow-up the multi-vectored act of misconstruing parental concerns over LGBTQ ideology in tax-funded schools, alienating people who recognize real biology, and dismissing folks who understand the proper use of pronouns, than to claim the label of “Christian” while promoting precisely the opposite?
In her Netflix spotlight, Ms. Swift did just that, “spontaneously” (i.e. offered in front of a camera crew, lighting crew, audio team, and channeled through editors and producers) expostulating about why she supported leftist Democrat Phil Bredesen in the 2018 Tennessee Senate race against pro-life Republican Marsha Blackburn. Recalling her struggles with parents and publicists about whether she should post her opinions online she said:
"I can't see another commercial and see Marsha Blackburn disguising these policies behind the words 'Tennessee Christian values'. Those aren't Tennessee Christian values. I live in Tennessee. I'm a Christian. That's not what we stand for."
As Tennessee lawmakers were voting to limit abortions in the state in 2019, Swift told The Guardian, “Obviously, I’m pro-choice.” Adding, “I just can’t believe this is happening.”
Ms. Swift might want to review the Old and New Testaments, review what she considers to be the taking of an innocent human life, consider her position on tax-funded policing to “keep the peace,” and tell people if she, perhaps, is being a touch heretical, inconsistent, and hypocritical.
Any Judeo-Christian approach to the matter of abortion – in fact, any syllogistic, deductive investigation of the issue – must recognize basic truisms about it and the purported justification of political governance.
Regardless of whether Taylor Swift considers herself a Christian, one might ask if, in all these recent years of her political posturing, she has ever called for the abolition of government statutes purported to protect people from aggression by others.
She seems very comfortable NOT questioning the idea that people should be taxed to provide police and a “justice system” that supposedly protect human beings. In fact, she enjoys not only tax-funded police protection but also her own private security forces.
So, while she accepts the idea that government will write statutes about protecting human beings, and she certainly seems to value protection, one might ask her what she considers to be “human beings…”
She will be unable to deny these truths:
One. At the moment of conception, the fetus is human: the unborn child is a unique human with its own DNA, distinct from that of the parents.
Two. At the moment of conception, the human fetus is “being” – alive and growing, on that great arc of natural existence from CONCEPTION to death that God directs.
Three. If Ms. Swift believes political force should be employed to supposedly protect human beings from other human beings, she needs to come to a consistent conclusion about whether all human beings will be “protected.”
If she wants to be consistent, and supports government statutes to that effect, then she must apply the principle to the unborn. There is no escape from this logic. There is no escape from this morality.
God sets the rules of life and logic, of all reality, and Ms. Swift, in claiming she is a Christian, not only defies Christianity, she defies the logical capacity God gave her to discern truth from falsehood.
She might not realize it, but her own faulty reasoning and misplaced “concern” open her up to criticism of the very protection she enjoys. She could do much better if she took a closer look at Christ’s words, at biology, and at her insupportable stance on the value of all human life.
