Because we are human, hypocrisy is something we have to expect from each other. Because we can be so evil, hypocrisy is something we also have to expose and oppose. Therefore, I expect that is why Julie wrote her post.
With what do we do heal the bigotry that hypocrisy can hide? Tricia writes about that here =>https://freedomthroughempowerment.wordpress.com/2019/03/03/intersectionality-and-radical-grace/
Here is the comment I left at her post.
Excellent! Just because we have a tendency to overlook it, I would just add the obvious. Jesus was full of both grace and truth.
Consider that we have Muslim black women getting away with bigotry in Congress. Intersectionality explains why. If a Republican white, male, Christian puts his foot in mouth and says something he probably shouldn’t have said, he ends up voting for his own censure. If someone with a intersectionality rating of 3 says something blatantly bigoted, her “apology” strangely sounds like a reaffirmation of he bigotry. I fear that poor lady needs a healthy dose of both radical grace and truth. Instead, her associates are ignoring and thereby enabling her abominable behavior.
What is Intersectionality? Read Tricia’s post.
Racism, sexism, and creedal hatred are just expressions of arrogant pride. Such bigotry is an excuse we give ourselves to lord over others. Because we so much enjoy lording over others, the longer we take to oppose true bigotry, the more difficult it is to defeat.
