Confronting Woke Culture (Morning Air)

Have you been cancelled?

Woke culture has hurt a lot of people, and it’s time that we call it out for what it is…

John Morales explores the controversial waters of woke culture, guided by the insights of Noelle Mering, an esteemed fellow at the Ethics and Public Policy Center and author of Awake, Not Woke: A Christian Response to the Cult of Progressive Ideology. Here’s a sneak peek into their enlightening conversation:

🤔 What’s the Deal with Woke Ideology? Noelle describes woke ideology as a complex concoction of materialism, utopian dreams, identity politics, and an unending sexual revolution. At its heart, it’s a quest to reshape society through social engineering, ignoring the spiritual and transcendent dimensions of human existence. The result? A culture of division, where people are split into oppressors and victims, and where traditional moral principles are constantly under siege.

🚩 Red Flags and Revelations Noelle and John explore the stark parallels between woke ideology and ancient Gnosticism, highlighting a shared disdain for bodily reality and a push towards a so-called higher understanding that justifies authoritarian control. This dangerous game of redefine and rule is not just about power; it’s an assault on truth itself.

🙏 A Call to Arms for the Faithful Amidst the ideological storm, Noelle stresses the importance of spiritual resilience. Prayer and fasting are vital weapons in this battle, which extends far into the cultural and familial spheres. The Theology of Home series, co-authored by Noelle, emerges as a source of hope, aiming to fortify families against the divisive tide of woke culture.

🔄 The One-Way Street of Tolerance Noelle also sheds light on the ironic intolerance of woke ideology, which cloaks itself in the guise of tolerance. This selective acceptance demands not just coexistence but complete submission to its ever-changing moral landscape, leaving no room for traditional values or even civil disagreement.

💔 Personal Stories of Division A caller shares a heart-wrenching story of lost friendships and familial strains, painting a vivid picture of the divisive power of woke ideology.

🔥 Fighting Back with Truth and Love In a world increasingly polarized by woke ideology, Noelle and John call on listeners to combat manipulation with awareness, compassion, and a steadfast adherence to truth. It’s a journey back to the Logos, to the essence of what it means to be human, guided by faith, reason, and love.
