The Noble Delusion
The concept of the noble lie is well known, but the noble delusion? If you haven’t heard of Becket Cook, he is the latest in a long line of homosexuals to trade the bath-house for the pulpit. Well, not such a long line, but this is a movement that has now arrived. Cook uploaded the first video to his YouTube channel on November 17, 2020, but his conversion to born again Christian goes back over a decade. He was living on the West Coast and working in the film industry – why am I not surprised? – when he was invited to a church service by a stranger. That was in September 2009. He went on to obtain an MA in Theology, and has been preaching his particular spin on the Gospel ever since.
Obviously from a privileged background, he is also handsome, charismatic, and now happily celibate. It is a shame he became homosexual because he could have had any woman he wanted within reason, but for some people there are more important things than procreation.
Adam Hood is another former homosexual who found Jesus on the West Coast; he has a much darker tale to tell, but is now both heterosexual and married. Men like Cook and Hood can be found all over YouTube preaching the Gospel to homosexuals, helping them to leave this depraved lifestyle. There are former lesbians too, but like Queen Victoria I’ve never been able to take lesbianism seriously; it doesn’t cause the same damage to the female body, and it has the advantage of keeping monsters like Julie Bindel as far away from men as possible.
All religion is of course revealed truth, and therefore a delusion. Whether or not Man will ever be able to understand the origin of the Universe, it is just too vast to entertain the concept of a conscious Creator, much less one who waited around until a few thousand years ago to give often contradictory instructions to his human creations. Having said that, it obviously serves a purpose, if only to keep men and women on the straight and narrow.
There were those who wanted to keep people on the not-so-straight and narrow; the so-called Gay Christian Movement was launched in 1976, in London, shamefully. It doesn’t seem to have done much recently, but sadly, Islam appears to be moving in the opposite direction; there is now a plethora of so-called gay Moslems on YouTube preaching a very different Gospel to the people of that other book.
As a lifelong atheist, I don’t believe in the Qur’an anymore than I do the Bible, but just as I would rather a white msn kneel at the feet of Jesus or the Virgin Mary than bend over in the bath-house, so too would I rather seen a brown man bow down to Allah in the mosque than mount another man like a dog.
