Don’t get me wrong, They are certainly the drivers of our current spiritual malaise, but They could not have done it, could not be doing it, without the active, willing, and submissive compliance of the vast majority of the West.
Put bluntly, the majority of the West actively chose, is actively choosing, to participate in the anti-God, anti-Creation, demonically-led agenda.
Two words – freedom and love.
People in the West turned their backs on freedom and love that aligns with God and Creation and embraced the pseudo, anti-God, anti-Creation freedom and love the Establishment promulgates.
We chose this. It really is that simple.
To underscore this undesirable fact, I turn to the current American ambassador to Hungary – a gay, Jewish human rights lawyer who demonstrated his respect for Hungary’s support of traditional family values by arriving in Budapest with his husband and kids in tow – and the recent speech he gave to celebrate Pride month.
Pay attention, because everything this man says is on point:
Hungarians are fiercely independent, sophisticated, and intelligent people, and rightfully proud of their rich culture and history. No matter how many government-produced posters of “Brussels” bombs may be emblazoned around town at any given moment, the reality is Hungary is not under “attack” by outside forces, or vulnerable to a “liberal virus” or “Western decadence,” or cowering before George Soros, or at the mercy of omnipotent conspiratorial powers. No, the reality is something far simpler.
The story of Hungary, including its movement for equality, is one being written not by foreigners, but by Hungarians.
Not by them, but by you.
Not by people abroad, but by the people in this room.
It is not fictional. It is a true story that is rich, resonant, and real.
And the United States supports you as you write that story, and in your effort to advance human dignity.
While the news should report this truthful story factually. I can already read the headlines Minister Rogán’s team is dictating for tomorrow’s papers. No doubt I’ll be accused of staging provocations, of importing Western wokeness, and foisting obscene values while meddling in Hungary’s domestic affairs.
What won’t happen is any of the government’s captured and controlled media outlets printing this speech in full. What they’ll cut out – what they always cut out – is the fact that it is Hungarians who believe in these universal human rights, and it is Hungarians leading the fight for them.
What they’ll cut out is all of you.
But they should print this speech because tonight is different.
While the government-controlled media would have you believe these topics are all I talk about, in fact, this is the first speech I have given here on LGBT rights. As I approach my one-year anniversary here — having spent much of the year focusing on other issues of strategic importance to our two countries — they should print what I am actually saying about this topic rather than what they portray. They should print it in full. I dare them.
But no matter what the government-controlled media will or will not print, no matter what it does or does not say, it cannot distract from one simple, undeniable fact: Hungary made its choice.
Hungary chose to be part of the West.
It is Hungary and Hungarians who chose to join the OSCE, the Council of Europe, and the European Union and to uphold their bedrock principles.
It is Hungary and Hungarians who chose – 25 years ago next year – to join NATO, and who pledged to uphold our shared security as part of a community of democratic values.
It is Hungary and Hungarians who in 2003 — 20 years ago — passed the Act on Equal Treatment and the Promotion of Equal Opportunities, which forbids discrimination, including on the basis of sexual orientation or gender identity.
In short, Hungary made a choice, and it is a choice Hungarians should be proud of – and most are – and a choice that should be honored. A firm, unequivocal, and prideful declaration of Hungary’s identity and place – in Europe, in NATO, in the West. A choice to move away from an era of oppression and repression – and towards an era of freedom and, dare I say, love.
Szabadság és szerelem. (Freedom and love.)
You can replace Hungary and Hungarians with any other nation or nationality in the West in the text above and the message remains the same.
The same applies to the pronoun we.
We chose this freedom and love. We. It was our choice. We must stop pretending otherwise.
The only way forward is repentance and, if possible, resistance. But repentance and resistance are not enough.
We need to actively and willingly reject the Establishment's "freedom and love" and align with real freedom and love.
We need to make the choice for real freedom and love and commit to this choice -- eternally.
Simple . . . yet tough.

Further note added: My criticism of the ambassador should not be taken as an automatic endorsement of the current Hungarian government who -- despite being on the "right" side on some issues -- is most definitely on the wrong side overall.
