Reacting to the March 27 school shooting in Nashville, where 28-year-old Audrey Hale slaughtered three adults and three children, Carlson used his nightly show to warn the issue at its core is one of God-hating rebellion and sinful pride.
“In Christianity, the price of admission is admitting that you’re not God,” Carlson explained, quoting the “saved a wretch like me” stanza from Amazing Grace. Those words from that famous hymn, he said, demonstrate how mankind humbly acknowledges our weakness and God’s power over all things.
“The trans movement takes the opposite view,” Tucker continued. “Trans ideology claims dominion over nature itself. ‘We can change the identity we were born with,’ they will tell you with wild-eyed certainty.”
So there is naturally a conflict, Carlson concluded, because Christians believe God is the author of life but a transgender person believes he or she decides what is a man or a woman and lashes out at anyone whose worldview differs from that belief.
It sure seems like the American public is witnessing that conflict after the Covenant School shooting.
Usually after a tragic shooting, the public would typically see moving stories about the fatal victims, and an eye-opening analysis about the shooter’s motives and beliefs, but all of that has gone largely ignored over the last eight days. Instead….
*Hale’s parents were indirectly blamed for the school massacre in a Daily Mail story that said they "rejected" their transgender child
*NBC News reported transgender activists feared backlash after the shooting
* The Washington Post combined the topic of a Christian school with a school shooting and asked what’s the “Christian thing to do about guns”
*A headline by Reuters stated Hale was a “former Christian school student,” when she last attended the school at age 11 in 2006
*A story by The Associated Press warned about "anti-transgender rhetoric and disinformation" after the school shooting
*A second British newspaper, the Telegraph, tied Covenant School to the liberal Presbyterian denomination and suggested it preaches on the "sinfulness" of transgenders and homosexuals
*A group called Trans Resistance Network defended Hale as a victim of hate and accused “Right Wing personalities” for seeking the “genocidal eradication of trans people from society”
When it was learned Hale had written a manifesto prior to the Covenant shooting, left-wing activists demanded Nashville police keep it sealed because its contents could harm transgender and LGBT activists, they claimed.
“Regardless of the shooter's intentions, the real issue here is the ease of access to deadly weapons in Tennessee and elsewhere,” one activist told Newsweek.
As of today, April 4, Hale's writings have not been released.
At the White House, President Joe Biden was asked by a reporter if he believed Christians were targeted in the school shooting. His reaction was a smirk.
“I have no idea,” he finally replied.
Bullying feminist becomes trans activist
One of the best examples of Carlson’s spiritual-themed warning happened on left-wing MSNBC. Two days after the Covenant shooting, transgender activist “Charlotte” Clymer (pictured below) was warning the audience about the right-wing threat to transgenders in light of the school massacre.
"Children are only unsafe at drag shows when a shooter shows up to kill them," said Clymer, reacting to state legislatures setting age limits for the vulgar, adult-oriented dancing.
Clymer, whose real name is Charles, called transgenders “vibrant people” and then brought a twisted view of faith into the conversation.
“God made me in Her image,” Clymer said. “God made me transgender.”
However, before the Lord supposedly intervened and turned a man into a woman, Charles Clymer was a self-described “male feminist” until he was accused of sexual harassment and bullying by women who described his insults and bullying. After announcing he is a woman in 2017, the now-female Clymer was welcomed to MSNBC wearing makeup, pearls, and dangling earrings while the MSNBC chyron warned transgenders are under attack.
Regarding the spiritual fight that is being waged, Dr. Richard Land tells AFN it is the Church that must unapologetically define and defend truth from the pulpits. To remain silent, he says, is to allow deluded people to “fester” in sin and immorality.
“We have an epidemic of spinelessness in our churches,” he warns. “We've got way, way, way too many pastors who are men pleasers.”
