Assisting the American sheeple on their journey into emotional, intellectual and physical servitude to the state as a religion is the woke church. Being woke, or having the characteristic of wokeness, means that you are aware of and outraged by what you or others perceive to be injustice, patriarchy, racism, classism, and any other ism you care to add tothe definition. In short, being woke means you care about what you perceive to be social, political and cultural shortcomings that you believe marginalize people of select groups. This, in turn, gave rise to the equally illogical catch-all of power-racism and discrimination; intersectionality.
Intersectionality is replacing plain old ordinary wokeness with micro-wokeness. The truly visionary people, those with elitist longings, and super-sensitive feelings attuned to the rhythm of life and meaning, see specialized micro-groups of marginalized people and have created their own scorecard for those confused about how outraged they are permitted to be.
For example, women are allowed to be outraged at the patriarchy, but black women even more so. A black woman who thinks she is a man is entitled to more outrage than a straight white woman. However, all of those are eclipsed by the Chinese woman who has undergone gender reassignment surgery. It gets confusing the deeper down the rabbit hole of intersectionality you go.
This might shock many Christians reading this but, it is likely that the denomination you belong to supports the insanity described above. Many Southern Baptist Convention churches, many Lutheran, Presbyterian, and Methodist churches, The Gospel Coalition, Together for the Gospel and many other church groups, ministry organizations and individuals are all advocating for these things and more.
