Has society lost its everlasting mind?
Did you hear about the gender-neutral birth certificates? One couple insisted that their newborn not be identified by a sexist, patriarchal culture.
Understand, at its roots the feminist agenda has always been anti-male. I wrote the following in a post titled Of Lies and Deceit:
Did you know that the feminist movement was inspired by misandrists (man-haters)? They hated masculinity and femininity. Andrea Dworkin (1977) proposed gendercide, and called on women to unite in common bond to overthrow men. They hated marriage and child-bearing, and were opposed to the family unit as the bedrock of society.
Not only did they hate masculinity and femininity, but also gender identity. The feminists formed an unlikely alliance with the gay and lesbian community to push a radical social agenda (abortion* and gay marriage) that defiantly rejects the very headship and authority of God.
(Can you more clearly see how the Left takes the culture down a slippery path to condemnation?)
It’s all a manifestation of the spiritual warfare in which Christians are faithfully engaged … but not all Christians. Many churches have conformed to the world either for acceptance, or simply out of ignorance.
The Episcopal church in my neighborhood proudly boasts that it is a diverse and welcoming assembly. It is inclusive in that it affirms and celebrates homosexuality, and pursues social justice.
Where is this taught in the Bible?
If I were pastor of a church I, too, would welcome homosexuals, adulterers, fornicators and drunkards …
And such were some of you. But you were washed, you were sanctified, you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and by the Spirit of our God (1 Corinthians 6:9-11).
I love homosexuals and would welcome them in the church with Christ’s admonition to go and sin no more (John 8:11).
The liberal church has forsaken the Gospel of Jesus Christ and preach, instead, a gospel of social justice.
This may surprise some folks, but one of my closest friends is transgender. I don’t beat them over the head with religion, and I resent being called homophobic. In their presence I simply live Jesus Christ, and pray that the Spirit will move in their heart to repentance.
Today, I heard about the parents who sued a private school in California that allegedly would not accommodate their transgender child.
The eight-year-old was born male, but identifies as a female; and the school would not permit the child to wear a dress.
If I were the judge I would throw out the lawsuit. The parents had the responsibility of exercising due diligence to discover if this would be an issue with the conservative institution.
It’s a bogus claim.
All children, at a very young age, are gender confused. Well, maybe that’s too imprecise. More correctly, they have no understanding of male and female. What, then, helps to clarify this distinction in their young minds?
The child learns through socialization — by observing the distinct roles of mommy and daddy. This is the argument against homosexuals adopting children, and why a two-parent family (male and female) are essential in developing a child’s gender identity.
I was the third child in a family of four siblings. My mother had given birth to two sons and wanted a daughter, but I upset the family plan. Mom finally had a girl on the fourth attempt; and being closer in age I played with her. My older brothers hung out with their school chums and did guy things with dad.
Friends, this can really mess with a child’s head and create confusion. But in those days gender identity was not an issue. I was born a boy, had the right anatomy and was influenced by role models that were clearly defined — a mother, father and two older brothers.
I knew what it was to be a boy so as I got older I hung out with my brothers who no longer considered me to be a nuisance.
In that era if I had any emotional issues my parents would have taken me in for psychological counseling. Children weren’t given drugs, but underwent therapy and analysis.
The parents of the aforementioned transgender sought counseling on behalf of their child and the therapist recommended that they permit him to wear dresses. Politically correct, but bad advice. Treatment not affirmation is the loving course of action.
This tolerance and acceptance is partly to blame for our cultural and social degradation. It has given rise to the most narcissistic, self-absorbed generation that has ever been.
If I had put on a dress my dad would have unleashed some biblical love on my tender bottom. A good spanking always worked wonders for the soul (Proverbs 13:24). Sadly, that is frowned upon in today’s progressive, enlightened, permissive society that rejects any expression of authority and discipline.
Gender confusion is a psychological condition in need of professional therapy. The LGBTQ community has polarized the illness for political gain. Yes, there was a time when psycho-sexual disorders were a classified mental illness. Politics not medicine rescinded the designation.
Angela Oswalt (MSW) wrote in an article, Early Childhood: Gender Identity and Sexuality:
Early beliefs about gender roles will reflect children’s observations of what they see around them.
A five-year-old child understands gender by what they observe in their environment. Do the parents act out the traditional model of mother and father? This is a primary reason for the feminist assault on marriage and family, the defamation of fatherhood, the denigration of motherhood; and the rejection of natural law which defines what is masculine and feminine.
The metrosexual man is the antithesis to someone as bold as Donald Trump. Some young women, visiting from New York City, asked me:
Are there any men in California?
Most have been feminized, and this retreat has emboldened the misandrists and gay community to continue their aggressive assault on the social conscience. They won’t stop until every man worth his salt is emotionally castrated.
Beware … neither will the effeminate enter the kingdom of heaven (as it is written).
* Immigration and labor are divisive issues in this nation. Maybe if we hadn’t aborted 52 million babies …
