Pusillanimous: Chancellor Merkel and Gospel Coalition...

Error message

Reading Sobran's article just posted reminded me of the word "pusillanimous."

Keep track of the words that have died. They tell us what we've become.

Public leadership in the church and uncivil society today is forevermore pusillanimous. The word had to be killed. If you're fighting under cover of darkness, you don't provide the enemy night vision goggles.

Pusillanimous is the perfect word to describe what Germany's Chancellor Angela Merkel did earlier today. After showing her truest heart to a woman's magazine where she answered a question about sodomite marriage by emoting about a recent visit she'd had with a lesbian couple and their foster children, Merkel suggested the issue be put to a vote...

Immediately the question was called and, following one single hour of debate, Germany lowered itself into the cesspool of European nations who think it's a great idea for children to be raised without fathers or mothers.

Thing is, after emoting about the wonderful lesbians and paving the way for the uber-quick vote, the Chancellor Merkel herself voted against sodomite marriage.

Yup, you read that right: against.

This was Merkel pandering to her conservative base and it was as pusillanimous as pusillanimous can be.

There are only three words to resurrect if we determine ourselves to restore sanity to our world:

  • Pusillanimous.
  • Effeminate.
  • Equivocation.

Let me use all three words in one sentence, then provide an example.

The sentence:

Effeminate men are pusillanimous in their equivocations.

The example:

Gospel Coalition entices Ed Shaw to announce to their constituents that "Godliness is not heterosexuality."

Who can fault Germany's Chancellor Merkel when, here in the U.S., these are the Christian celebrities we follow?
