Time Magazine's "Religion" Section: This Lent, I'm Acknowledging My Privilege As a White Heterosexual Christian Male

The media likes these Social Justice Warrior stories because they cost nothing at all, and a lot of stupid prog Millennials will click and link and "Like" them on FaceBook.

They claim be brave investigators into the truth, but this insipid crap is 80% of their work product, and I define "work" in a liberal way there.

I'm a White Christian Man and I'm Acknowledging My Privilege for Lent

Hale is executive director at Catholics in Alliance for the Common Good and the co-founder of Millennial

...

Jesus, the great protagonist of this holy season, shows us that life and redemption arenít achieved through strength and power but by rejecting privilege and taking up the sufferings of the entire human family. In Jesus, God takes on the fullness of human dysfunction -- its disloyalty, its violence, and its terror -- to redeem everything. He goes all the way down to bring everyone up. No one is excluded.

As a white heterosexual Christian man itís a reminder that if I am to authentically honor the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ this holy season, I must acknowledge and reject the privilege afforded me for the sake of taking the path of Jesus Christ.

There's nothing better for me to do this Lent than to abstain and fast from the sexism that too often colors my life.

Now, let's set the record straight: there are those who are blatantly sexist and there are those who unintentionally perpetuate micro-acts of sexism in their everyday lives. I'm most certainly a sinner, but on my best days, I'm hopefully more of the latter than the former. And perhaps that's more pernicious in a country where Donald Trump is President.

His election certainly reminds us that sexism still runs rampant in the world's longest lasting democratic republic. But to pretend that this problem is spread equally throughout the nation is to ignore the reality that some communities and institutions are the greatest offenders.

As a sinner who does his best every day to follow Jesus Christ, it's time to admit that the Christian community runs rampant with sexism, and that -- yes -- I am a big part of it. All men are. Thatís the nature of societal sin: no one is truly devoid of responsibility, though some are more responsible than others.

BTW, Time links a related story you might be interested in, which is also in its alleged "RELIGION" section -- ""Why Heaven Can Have a Gate But the US Shouldn't Have a Wall."

It's by the same author -- you know, the co-founder of Millennial.

You know, that organization and/or magazine Millennial that everyone's talking about.

Time's "Religion" section seems not terribly interested in religion at all, except the religions of transnational progressivism and intersectional feminist theory.
