Listen to this statement from actor Mark Ruffalo, and then we'll talk about it in context:
"It's my humble belief that what will give all the sadness and loss that we all live through meaning is our common humanity. What connects us is greater than what keeps us apart. And the more we include each other, and see each other and hear each other, the faster we will heal our broken hearts and minds. We have a dying mother, just like the mother in our story. She is Mother Earth. And we must come to balance with her and honor her. And she will heal too. So let's be courageous together. Let's turn the page on the cruel past of this nation. The good news is inclusion and justice and care for Mother Earth is breaking out everywhere. The godly light of decency is breaking through the hideous, dark storm we've been living through."
Whew. What a quote, eh? The above comments came during Ruffalo's acceptance speech at the Golden Globes over the weekend. He laments our "dying mother" Gaia and says we must "balance with her and honor her."
If you're wondering, these are deeply religious statements, and it highlights something important: the Woke Left is not secular. Far from it, actually. This is a statement consistent with pantheistic and animist beliefs: "We are one with the universe, and the universe is one with us."
As opposed to calling for the stewardship of our natural resources in the sight of a holy Creator God, it's full-blown pagan worship of the planet and Creation itself. Lest I break out quoting Romans 1 for the tenth time this week, I'll move along.
"Let's turn the page on the cruel past of this nation," Ruffalo continued.
Yep. One can't prostrate before the earth god without a little revisionist history that decried the sYsTeMiC iNjUsTiCe of wHiTe cOloNiZerS.
If you're still one of those people who think Christian doctrine can exist side by side with the ideology of Black Lives Matter and Critical Race Theory, you might want to consider why all the Wokies keep linking these things together.
This brings us to the crème de la crème of Ruffalo's speech. In the following sentence, he best expresses the entire Gospel of Wokism in one fell swoop:
"The good news is inclusion and justice and care for Mother Earth is breaking out everywhere. The godly light of decency is breaking through the hideous, dark storm we've been living through."
Is this the good news you place your hope in? That politically correct "inclusion" and social "justice" and "care for Mother Earth is breaking out everywhere?" That the "godly light of decency" is growing?
Never mind that Ruffalo's call to "include" and "hear" and "see" each other most likely does not include anyone who differs from said opinions about history, science, or ideology. In fact, I'd wager the way I'd be "included" in this utopia is a violent end in a cold Siberian gulag.
But here's my real question:
Does such a gospel have any power whatsoever to save us from our sins?
I'll leave you with that thought.
