Civil authorities around the country are now starting to push back against the scourge of the LGBTQ+ agenda and its immoral targeting of underage children. Texas Attorney General, Ken Paxton, released an opinion regarding current Texas law that quite rightly identifies unnecessary transgender therapies like puberty blockers, hormone therapy, and reassignment surgeries as a form of child abuse.
Based on his opinion, the governor of Texas, Greg Abbott, sent a letter to the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services indicating that they must investigate any such cases and report them for what they are – the abuse of a minor. Many of these procedures will chemically castrate a child leaving him/her infertile or maimed for life. There are other physical health ramifications like the increased risk of cardiovascular disease, cancer and insulin resistance as well as immense psychological and emotional damage inflicted upon these children.
South Dakota’s governor, Kristi Noem, recently signed into law a piece of legislation banning trans men/boys who are pretending to be women/girls from competing on female sports teams in the state. According to NBC news there are 10 such states nationwide with a similar law on the books. But where is the Christian church as a moral authority on this topic? Nowhere to be found and believe it or not, some Christian churches are actively promoting this nonsense.
Many Catholic parishes now have active LGBTQ+ ministries like this one in Inverness, IL. This particular group has independently decided that, “…the church’s teaching in this area must continue to evolve.” They conveniently forget about two thousand years of sacred tradition and dogma stating that the church’s position on LGBTQ+ issues must change, “…based on mounting and continued evidence and learning within various fields.” So, if a secular psychologist, agnostic sociologist, or an atheist scientist now says that something is no longer a sin, we all need to get on board. But it’s not just the progressive Catholics.
St. Luke’s Lutheran church in Chicago conducted a drag queen prayer hour in December. Seminarian, Aaron Musser, appeared in full drag apparel including a white dress with a blasphemous golden cross emblazoned upon it, a matching choker, a platinum blonde waist length wig, false eyelashes, a face full of heavy makeup (which could not disguise that he was a really man), and of course the obligatory stiletto heels.
Musser was reported as saying, “And I decided instead of telling you, ‘This is how I want you to be joyful,’ as we prepare for this dress rehearsal, I figured I would instead put on a dress as so many who have inspired me have done. I decided to follow their example, showing that liberation from oppressive laws clears a path for joy.” And what would those oppressive laws be? Perhaps those pesky little principles of nature that tell us there are and can only be two genders – male and female – and that every cell in a person’s body confirms this reality.
If this charade in itself was not depraved enough, St. Luke’s church thought it a good idea to expose children to this abomination. The site of this man in his clownish drag queen outfit is the stuff of nightmares and to expose little children to this perversion is unconscionable. The rationale for the obvious abuse is justified under the progressive mantle of affirmation, acceptance and diversity.
According to this warped logic why not bring in a serial killer, rapist or drug addict to preach to children? Shouldn’t the criminals and non-conformists be free to express their sinful tendencies to children too? The normalization of perversion and evil and exposing it to the little ones only can lead children to a life of depression, unhappiness, and emptiness as all serious sin will eventually lead to.
As lent begins tomorrow, we are again reminded of the powerful words of Jesus, “Whoever causes one of these little ones* who believe in me to sin, it would be better for him to have a great millstone hung around his neck and to be drowned in the depths of the sea” (Mt 18:6).
