Star Wars is dead, the Witches who've co-opted the franchise hate us, and you know my take on supporting such.
That said, one of my mutuals on Twitter recently steered me toward an Orthodox archbishop's review of Return of the Jedi.
This review was written during the movie's original run, soon after His Eminence watched it in the theater. His keen theological explication of what I suspect were George Lucas' accidental spiritual insights gave me a new appreciation of the original trilogy's moral value.
Just as importantly, the Archbishop's glowing assessment of the original trilogy's sublime spiritual lessons drive home exactly how much the Death Cultists at Disney have taken from us. The vandals' evil is directly inverse to the splendor of the beauty they've defaced.
Time and again we see that the real battle is fought and won on the moral level. It was the irresistible moral force of Luke's self-emptying love that redeemed Anakin. Only by embracing and living such sacrificial love after the model of Christ can we defeat those who hate us for His sake.
The Death Cult knows it, too. That's why they spent billions to mar this iconic trilogy--especially the Christ figure's triumph at the end.
The Death Cult cannot countenance a redemptive ending like this, because in their twisted cosmology there is no and can be no forgiveness. That is why their imitation of Star Wars was both a clumsy remake of the first trilogy and a cynical hollowing out of it at the same time.
And Star Wars is far from the Cult's only victim. They're sullying and degrading every speck of beauty in Christendom.
But as the Archbishop shows, the minions of the Evil One can be stopped. Doing so will require you, me, and all Christians to deny ourselves, take up our crosses daily, and follow Christ.
Once the great moral victory is won, our temporal enemies will fall like dominoes.
