The level to which our decadent society is denying reality is becoming disturbing. Last month the press informed us that a woman was fighting on front lines for the first time. The reality was that a disturbed man remains in active service whilst his superiors applaud. This week we have been told about the first man to give birth. Spoiler alert- it was not a man. The presence of vagina and womb would have given that one away to small children. It was yet another confused soul who wishes to deny the biological fact of their identity. When will the madness end?
During a conference in America this year I listened with horror, fascination and some amusement as a pastor explained the difficulty of ministering within the liberal left community of Seattle. He was attempting to give counsel to a couple of lesbians who were raising a child belonging to one of them. Decent people by all account. Yet the mother of the child had decided to identify as a man. And this was leading her partner to consider leaving the home because…..well she was a lesbian and didn’t want to be in a relationship with a man?!!?!
Understand that when the remains of King Richard III were dug up under a car park in Leicester nobody argued over the scientific analysis- that the bones clearly belonged to a man. It is a fact of nature that men and women are different to the point of possessing different skeletons. And no matter how much makeup, fancy clothes and butchery one undertakes- if your body is analysed after a terrible fire then the chromosomal information still reveals the truth as opposed to the desire. Why then are we denying science, truth, fact to play this charade?
The conclusions of the sexual revolution are leading us beyond sanity. What madness we sow as we witness the hubris of mankind attempting to deny his true nature. What denial of scientific fact and obvious truth is needed as the State continues its war on the conventional family and hammers home a fantasy of gender fluidity; a slap in the face of hardwired biological fact. I doubt many are really convinced, in truth, but they are afraid to speak out. Because the use of thought policing and hate labelling has left most people more afraid of being thought un-inclusive than deranged. So the nonsense continues.
Well you can label this traditional Christian a hater if you think it wins you the argument. But I would still rather stand with science and reason over insanity. I prefer to insist that you can sympathise with, and care for, those who are uncomfortable in their own skin without resorting to buying into their delusions. Just as one can support and help the man who thinks he is Nelson without resorting to cutting of his hand and gauging out his eye. If it does not help an anorexic to tell them they are fat then why do we imagine it is helping anyone playing along with the fantasy that they are other than as they were born. In fact it strikes me as cruel.
