Not to name names, because remember our struggle is not against flesh and blood, that is, individuals, but against spiritual evil working through flesh and blood, that is, individuals. We could be, and I certainly am sometimes, that flesh and blood doing the work of evil. When I'm hateful, resentful, ungrateful, that sort of thing ... which is far too often.
So I'm not going to name names.
There is a popular blogger who has been supportive of the war on terrorism, and has spoken eloquently about our need to defend ourselves. Mixed in with these posts is the outspoken advocation of gay marriage and the changing of Catholic teaching on homosexuality. A lot of libertarian bloggers may have been convinced by his arguments, as well as a lot of conservatives. Many have been confused.
And so it can be argued that this individual, who has left himself open to spiritual evil through his outspoken, unrepentant homosexual behavior, is doing the work of spiritual evil — by speaking fighting words on the war on terror as a cover for his other arguments, which is to pervert the fundamental values regarding family, marriage and sexuality. And BTW, I'm spiritually analyzing the situation; this is completely unconscious on his part. He thinks he's on the side of angels ... but he's being used by spiritual forces he simply doesn't understand. And as long as he's unrepentant, he will continue. And that's a shame, because he's talented.
As another writer said, our job is not to anathematize these individuals, but to pray for them and call them to conversion. These individuals are not the enemy; they are the mission field.
