LeClaire Sees Demons and Satan All Around Us

Jennifer LeClaire, the editor of Charisma News, is upset once again (this is a perpetual state for her), this time about transgender characters in TV shows and movies. Naturally, she blames this promotion of “perversity” on her imaginary enemy, Satan.

The floodgates are now officially open…

ABC Family will soon broadcast Becoming Us, about a teen who works through his father’s transition from male to female. Jenner is producing his own E! docuseries that will debut on July 26. Oh, and the Wachowski siblings, one of whom was the first Hollywood director to come out as transgender, will premier a new Netflix original program called Sense8.

On top of all that, TLC is rolling out All that Jazz, which focuses on a 14-year-old named Jazz Jennings who decided he was a girl at a young age. His parents let him live as a girl and gave him hormone treatments from age 11. There’s more but we’ll stop there.

Battling the Prince of the Power of the Air

Satan is the prince of the power of the air (see Eph. 2:2). We’ve long seen all manner of perversion coming out of Hollywood, including the glamorization of adultery, fornication, idolatry, thievery, greed, drugs and more. Clearly, though, this devilish prince is strategically pushing perversion to new heights in the name of equality…

Our war is against a demonic agenda to call evil good and good evil (see Is. 5:20). This agenda is seducing people into a lifestyle of perversion that ultimately separates them from God. This agenda is working to mainstream a way of life that leaves people in bondage. And, ultimately, this agenda is demonizing anyone who won’t embrace this new “civil rights” issue.

Now that’s just funny. After arguing that transgender people are literally doing the bidding of Satan and probably demon-possessed, she then complains about being “demonized” as a bigot. That’s fucking comedy gold.

The invention of Satan has to be the shrewdest move in the history of Christianity. There’s virtually nothing that can’t be blamed on this non-existent boogeyman. It can be used to scare little children (and adults) into believing in God to be protected from him. It can be used as a means of dismissing one’s opponents and a reason for losing political and cultural disputes. Having not only imaginary friends but imaginary enemies is a very convenient thing indeed.

    Also, it’s extremely clear that these people think Satan (or demons) are far stronger than God, pretty much irresistable. So they might as well pack it in now.

    Three of them are bad because they’re transgender themed. One of them is bad simply because it was created by a transgendered person, even if/though the show itself has nothing to do with transgender themes.

    Satan goes much further back, being mentioned numerous times in the OT. Especially as good cop god’s bad cop in Job. Other earlier influences include Zoroastrianism.

    You can be sure that LeClaire has not seen the narratives of transgendered children [or adults for that matter]. If anything, they acted like they were possessed by some evil spirit before transitioning and were mostly free of depression after transition.

    No wonder blow jobs feel so good.

    To that, they’d need to blow up their studios and corporate offices, pound the remains into dust, and then spread salt over that so that nothing could ever grow there again. Then they need to hand over the producers to Ramsey Bolton for a little, tender House Bolton treatment.

    So long as it is official. I do not want guessing or supposing those gates are open!

    Actually Sense8, which apparently is about 8 random strangers who discover they have a mental link with one another, includes both a closeted gay man and a trans woman. So it’s double- or triple-icky.

  • carpenterman

    Sometimes, reading fundie ravings, all I can feel is pity. These people are so hostile because they are *scared*; terrified of a world they can’t control, terrified of The Other. They are locked in a “if you are different from me, you must be a threat” kind of mindset. They look around at the world and all they see are monsters. It must be awful, to be afraid all the time.

    Satan is the prince of the power of the air

    Then why are all these shows on cable networks and not broadcast TV?

  • Michael Heath

    Assertion:

    Satan is the prince of the power of the air . . .

    Validation:

    (see Eph. 2:2).

    The first step down the theologically conservative Christian rabbit hole; where that step’s an awfully long step down. Even conservative Christian colleges commit this absurd defect in thinking.

    Hercules Grytpype-Thynne “@Modusoperandi: Cooties are powerful things.”

    That was actually the tag line for the No Country for Old Men prequel, No Treehouse for Icky Girls.

     

    “cptdoom “Actually Sense8, which apparently is about 8 random strangers who discover they have a mental link with one another, includes both a closeted gay man…”

    Isn’t that where she wants them to be?

     

    “…and a trans woman.”

    Autobot or Decepticon?

     

    “So it’s double- or triple-icky.”

    Back when I played cricket, I once scored a triple-icky. I almost had a full thoop, but got thrimbled rounding the wiggly.

    Well that’s certainly not cricket!!

    She doesn’t believe any of this stuff. She’s got 875 pre-written paragraphs and every few days she grabs twelve or fifteen of those paragraphs and puts them together in random fashion to create her next article. Once, about five years ago, by sheer chance, one of her articles actually made sense. (It is the one article that none of her readers could understand.)

    Fundie: “Satan is controlling this TV show…what can we do? We are powerless to stop him. Powerless!!! Why, I can just feel the evil seducing me. Please won’t somebody get the networks to cancel this show!!!”

    Reasonable person: “this show is meh. [Click]”

  • eric

    Though maybe Jennifer has a point. If someone tells me the cis Wachowski sibling was responsible for the first Matrix movie and the trans one was responsible for the next two, I may have to give this Satanic Influence hypothesis a serious think.

  • ffakr

    I thought God was was the Bad Cop in the story of Job.

    Didn’t god essentially spend years slipping crabs into Job’s undies and shitting into his mojitos before jumping out of the bushes at the last minute to scream “you got Punked!” in Job’s face?

    Only out of Hollywood? Haven’t all sorts of artists in all sorts of genres and medias and ways being doing this since, well, forever really?

    There’s a good youtube clip on the evilution of the idea of Satan here :

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j-gbOnWj6Mw

    The Evolution of Satan in the Bible’ by 43Alley.

    which I stumbled on last night. Makes a pretty good case and explanation I think.

    @18. ffakir : Yep -also y’know killing all his kids to win a bet with Satan which, well, hello! Omnisience, being All-knowing and still gambling why? See the clip linked above starting 6 minutes or so in.
