The Transgender Indoctrination of our Children
This week, Focus on the Family reported something that is becoming decreasingly shocking:
In Sweden, apparently “the staff of a preschool is no longer using pronouns like “he” or “she” when referring to students”. The report states: “The preschool’s approach to gender is a reflection of Sweden’s national school curriculum that includes the mission of breaking down gender roles. For example, when playing “house,” teachers suggest students role play with two or three taking the role of “mom.”
These attempts at social engineering—impacting kids directly—aren’t just happening overseas. An Oakland elementary school recently spent two days on “Gender Spectrum Diversity Training.” Their reading list for second and third graders includes My Princess Boy and 10,000 Dresses, in which boy characters wear tiaras and magical dresses.”
As a parent I am horrified. As a person I am disgusted. As a Christian I am broken hearted. And as someone with any sense of logic and reason I am thoroughly irritated.
Let’s work backwards. Why as a person of logic and reason? Because this whole notion that gender is subjective and can be decided is insanity. I’m not being extreme. To believe with conviction that you are something that you are not, and to act upon that fantasy is a clinical definition of insanity – only in the case of gender confusion it has become acceptable.
For example, if a person believed they were mistakenly born a human and should have been born a cow or any other barnyard animal, then proceeded to live their life as such they would be given massive amounts of Thorazine and locked in a rubber room. When (and I mean when, because this happens) a person falls into the delusion (not the word delusion) that they are not in fact who they are but rather a famous historical figure (i.e. Abraham Lincoln, Thomas Edison, etc…) they are treated for psychiatric problems.
However, when a person is born as a man (which by the way, you can tell simply by looking) and they claim they were wrongly born that way and that they are actually a woman “on the inside”, how does that make them any less insane than the “cow man” or “modern Abraham Lincoln”. Why isn’t he given counseling and just told to look in his pants? Rather, these people are given permission to carry their delusion to the farthest extreme and actually adopt it via surgical procedure. What’s next? Do we so udders on cow man? Or perhaps start milking cow woman as she stands on all fours simply because she believes it’s what she was made to do? Does it sound like these questions are crossing the line? Why these questions and not the idea of the perversion of gender? It’s clinical insanity.
As a Christian, I’m broken hearted, and I disagree. Why? Because the bible says in Romans 9 “But who are you, a human being, to talk back to God? “Shall what is formed say to the one who formed it, ‘Why did you make me like this?’” Psalm 139 says “I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well.”& “For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb.” Jeremiah 1 says ““Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart;” The Bible goes on and on and on about how God makes each one of us exactly how he wants us. He didn’t screw up. He didn’t mess up. If you’re struggling with where you are, then it’s just that, a struggle, and guess what, we all have struggles. But that doesn’t change what you are, it just means you’ve got some things to work through just like everybody else in this world, it doesn’t mean you spit in the face of your creator. To reject your gender is to reject your God. (Don’t forget Deut 22:5, 1Cor 11:3-15, and 1 Cor 14:40 that deal with dressing like a transvestite)
As a person I am disgusted that anyone would subject children to the kind of brainwashing that teaches them that aberrant and insane behavior is not only acceptable but should be encouraged in their own lives. If “Cow-man” exists, then fine. We don’t hate him for it. We love him and offer him the psychological treatment he needs to re-enter society. We certainly don’t teach our children that “if they set their minds to it they can be anything they want, including a cow, producing milk and fertilizer and living naked in a barn with all the other cows and even take a cow as a wife!” That would be a horrific thing to teach a child. So is indoctrinating them with the idea that they aren’t, or don’t necessarily have to be, the human being they were created as. To do that is literally to sexually assault a child and it should be treated as such a crime.
As a parent I am horrified because, I have a young son, and for all of the reasons listed above it petrifies me to realize that I have to raise him in a world where every day is “opposite day” – where insanity is not even normal, but now even taught as proper education. I will raise my son to know that God created him with a clear purpose in mind and that and that he was designed exactly as God would have him to be. My son will know what it means to be a real man, how to have strength of character & integrity, how to respect women, lead his family, love his wife unconditionally, and most of all serve God.
