What makes a Westerner?

Reader comment on item: Denmark Leads the West to Immigration Sanity

Submitted by Kepha (United States), Dec 8, 2022 at 20:28

In a sense, I can understand the culturalism behind the Danish SD's turnabout. But, already, EU, European Outsider, and Anglosphere countries are very diverse. My own family speaks both English and a very non-Western, non-Indo-European language at home, even if we are Americans and Protestant Christians. We cherish customs from that non-Western heritage, even while despising the government under which the ancestral ground groans. Much as I love the American Founding documents, my views on the sexual revolution (including hetero "liberation") and such jurisprudence as Obergefell are very negative, and I cannot sympathize with European governments that penalize Christians who still dare to say with Moses, Paul, and Jesus himself that marriage is between a man and a woman.

I hope the Danes can recover more of the older Western Christian way. But the European Left and too much of its center still embraces the redefinitions of marriage and family that are probably a worse social and cultural cancer in our society than any Communist Party or wave of Muslim immigration (a portion of which apostasizes as soon as it can).
