The Left Is Transforming into a Religion, Maybe a Bit Too Literally

"The University of Regina is asking its male students to own up to their toxic masculinity, and they're setting up a confessional booth—similar to those in Catholic churches—where guys can confess their sins of 'hypermasculinity.'" Weekly Standard

"The Left Is Transforming into a Religion, Maybe a Bit Too Literally"

Ann Coulter, in her inimitable way, made this same argument in her 2006 book, Godless: the Church of Liberalism:

"Godless: The Church of Liberalism is a book by best-selling author and conservative columnist Ann Coulter, published in 2006. The book is an argument against American liberalism, which Coulter regards as so anti-scientific and faith-based that it amounts to a "primitive religion" which she claims has "its own cosmology, its own explanation for why we are here, its own gods, and its own clergy."

"Coulter argues that liberalism rejects the idea of God and reviles people of faith, yet bears all the attributes of a religion itself."

Regina means "Queen" in Latin, and despite the irony of a Methodist school named for a queen--I'd expected Catholic and per Mary "Queen of Heaven"--it somehow seems appropriate that they'd come out against "toxic masculinity". 

But to be fair, we want Biblical masculinity, not hyper-masculinity, no?  We shouldn't be too hard on them, because they're not all bad.

 

Aspiring to be a stick in the mud.

The Regina refers to Regina, Saskatchewan. So, the "queen" honored is Queen Victoria.
