A Queer Book

As Christians we must ask what the future holds. At the end of the Sixties Revolution, Jungian psychologist[12] and Gnostic spiritualist,[13] June Singer, wrote a 1997 book Androgyny: Towards a New Sexuality.[14] At the end of the Sixties Revolution, she saw and affirmed that the spiritual age of Aquarius was also the age of “androgyny” (the blending of male and female in bi-sexuality, homosexuality and transgenderism). She also correctly predicted the coming cosmology of a “new humanism,” a radical rejection of the biblical God and the cosmology of the Western Christian past.[15]

We now see the far-flung effects of what Singer saw so long ago. One religious implication was recently developed in the California State Board of Education, by Tolteka Cuauhtin, co-chair of the committee that developed the Ethnic Studies curriculum for California.[16] He argues that the US was founded on a “Eurocentric, white supremacist (racist, anti-black, anti-indigenous), capitalist, patriarchal (sexist and misogynistic), heteropatriarchal (homophobic) and anthropocentric paradigm brought from Europe.”[17] He encourages teachers to lead their students in indigenous songs, chants and affirmations to the Aztec deity Tezcatlipoca, who was worshiped with human sacrifice and cannibalism, calling for his help in becoming warriors for social justice. The practice is called “ritualized androgynization,”[18] which celebrates the non-binary pagan god, indistinct from creation and served by non-binary androgynous or homosexual priests.
