The Theory Of Devolution
(Comments on Hallmark Movies In The Newsfeeds
And A Viral Tweet)
You can count on the secular aggressive left to successfully lobby all media outlets to advance their agenda. And you can count on secular aggressive left celebrities to back such efforts on social media.
We saw that play out this week when Hallmark Movies pulled an ad from a wedding planning company showing two women kissing in a “marriage” ceremony. Then under pressure, putting that ad back on the air after the lobbying.
The LGBT movement aggressively advances their gender denial campaign with bold campaigns on billboards, TV shows, movies, print media, social media and their use of government. The “tolerance” they demand is really their desire for endorsement, asking everyone to celebrate their lifestyle.
Those who accept Biblical values are accused of hate if we disagree with them. And their ultimate aim is to silence us.

Here is one part of the tactic. It might be called The Theory Of Devolution. It goes like this: As time marches on, we embrace the digression; we devolve toward whatever we desire, absent any higher moral standard. As this is applied, the world gradually give up standards once accepted and argue that time demands it. Time is claimed as that which puts us in position to do whatever we want. (What will be claimed as acceptable in 2040?)
This is the theory that inspired Ellen DeGeneres to tweet her objection to pulling the LGBT ad: “Isn’t it almost 2020?” Yes it is. What does that mean? As time passes, are we supposed to degenerate? I don’t enjoy thinking about a society removing solid values over time. Is there another term that follows post-modern?
What would Paul tweet? “For this reason God gave them up to dishonorable passions. For their women exchanged natural relations for those what are contrary to nature; and the men likewise gave up natural relations with women and were consumed with passion for one another, men committing shameless acts with men and receiving in themselves the due penalty for their error.” (Rom. 1:26,27)
