In June 2017, Charisma Magazine editor J. Lee Grady issued a warning to Christians, “Don’t Swallow the Red Pill”. Link:
“Zach and Amanda (not their real names) were happily married and attending a growing church on the east coast. They started a family and got involved in ministry. Things were going well for this young Christian couple. But then Zach took a major spiritual detour.
He swallowed the Red Pill. … At first Amanda noticed her husband was developing odd attitudes about women. He would talk about how “all women” are highly emotional and how they want to manipulate men. Then Zach began to play mind games with his wife…
Then he started demanding total submission from Amanda. He began quoting 1 Peter 3:6, which says that Sarah called her husband Abraham “lord.” Meanwhile he would sometimes call his wife stupid if they argued.
“It was definitely mental and psychological abuse,” Amanda says. “His love was conditional. He would say, ‘You need to follow me completely, and then I will give you what you need.'”
Finally, Amanda couldn’t take it anymore. She began to fear that Zach might abuse her physically.”
If calling someone stupid is psychological abuse then we need to build more prisons. One also wonders why, if Amanda was a good wife, Zach would complain she wasn’t obedient or feel the need for “mind games”.
Many authors over the years have advocated a men’s movement, including Robert Bly, Rollo Tomassi or the Christian blogger known as Dalrock. But Red Pill has taken the philosophy to the level of a religion. The Red Pill discussion site was launched in 2012 by Robert Fisher, a congressman from New Hampshire who describes himself as both preacher’s kid and atheist. He hid his true identity on the site for a few years, but he resigned from his government post last month after his connection to Red Pill was revealed.
This is the truly interesting part of the article. MGTOW is not a men’s movement but the Cathedral keeps trying to make one out of it a la Gamergate. Not only is this not true, it is never going to be true given the experiences of men like Fisher. Does anybody think that resignation wasn’t forced?
So long as men want a seat at the table, our enemies have leverage over us. When we don’t… when we aren’t even making demands to negotiate over… the pretenses fail and naught but our destruction will satisfy our enemies.
