“Transgender Children” & The Danger Of Liberalism
As liberalism rolls through reality at warp-speed and seemingly into another dimension altogether, we are faced with social issues that would have been taboo even by mainstream liberal standards just 20 years ago. The derangement is growing at an exponential rate and is contributing to the complete degradation of our society. Bars are being lowered in the realms of education, creativity, and morality such that we are now immersed in a real debate as to whether or not raising transgender children is a healthy choice or a dangerous one. That something so patently detrimental is being contested by anyone at all is a shocking reality in itself, but that many of those defending and even championing this practice are prominent and influential figures in our society is truly frightening.
Realizing that the moral fabric of this country was framed by Christian thought is paramount in understanding why and just how far we have fallen. The Great Awakening in the mid 18th Century so impacted the American moral fabric that we still feel its effects today. Fast forward about a hundred years to 1863 when Abraham Lincoln issued the Emancipation Proclamation delivering the essential death blow to slavery as we know it. What did he have to say about the Bible?
In regard to this great book, I have but to say, it is the best gift God has given to man. All the good the Savior gave to the world was communicated through this book. But for it we could not know right from wrong. All things most desirable for man’s welfare, here and hereafter, are to be found portrayed in it.”
Even deists like Benjamin Franklin and Thomas Jefferson could not resist praising God’s word, seeing the undeniable practical benefits of heeding its prompts, and others like John Adams were even more forceful, saying,
The Christian religion is, above all the religions that ever prevailed or existed in ancient or modern times, the religion of wisdom, virtue, equity and humanity.”
While there are plenty of blemishes in American history we could speak of, it would not be characteristic of the whole and it is undeniable that the moral fabric of American society was founded upon God’s word and the principles of Christianity. This is not even mildly up for debate, and those who contend it is are entertaining the fanciful inventions of people with more time than sense, and who are more accustomed to using Google as a verb than a real book as a tool for learning. They’re typically the same people that think Al Gore invented the internet, so take that for what it’s worth.
It is the liberal-progressive crowd that largely controls the spheres of influence over the modern youth. Education, Entertainment and Media are almost completely dominated by liberal lunacy. The NEA supplies our children with a rancid crew of hyper-liberal Baby boomers and Millennials as their “teachers” or “educators” but who are better described as propaganda artists who have themselves been propagandized. Our colleges, likewise, are filled with “professors” with less credibility than the fictional Professor-X from “The X-men” (a title soon to be demolished for its lack of inclusiveness). These so-called educators “teach” children how to “think” in the same way Sea World taught killer whales how to do tricks; repetition and reward.
The actors and musical artists today are by and large liberal-minded, hyper-progressive, robots with an interest in out parroting their peers for the sake of establishing themselves as the virtuosos of virtue signaling. Lady Gaga teaches the youth that they were “Born This Way” while Katy Perry “…Kissed A Girl” and she liked it. Robert Deniro wastes no time voicing his desire for violence against the president while Leonardo DiCaprio shoves a “climate change” narrative down your throat at an awards show. So mainstream entertainers are constantly pushing an increasingly politicized and morally rebellious agenda.
The media is the 3rd Musketeer in the unholy trinity of debauched influence. From Jimmy Kimmel to Good Morning America, there is nothing that isn’t politicized and the only things reprehensible to them are dignity, couth and common sense. They have no sense of shame at this point. The swelling hypocrisy of these outlets is quickly and ironically becoming the only thing funny about them, though it is rightly tragic. Whether the fake “comedy” news of Kimmel and Colbert, or the local news in any-town U.S.A. the narratives are starting to align to the extent that there is an unspoken (and almost spoken at this point) rule that one dare not voice contrary opinions to the established narrative lest they lose their platform or be attacked mercilessly by a group of desperate and depraved “moral police” who have arbitrarily declared themselves the very standard of that morality.
I say all of this only to provide a basic context for addressing the latest episode of gross hypocrisy and irrationality to be plaguing our society for the worse. The so-called LGBTQ community is operating more and more like the fascists they claim to loathe, and though comprising a technically small portion of the American demographic is leveraging an uncomfortable amount of control. This is largely due, not to the adherents of the lifestyles themselves, but rather those who support them. Many of these supporters unfortunately occupy places of prominence in the three spheres just mentioned. Most of society is not gay or transsexual; not by a long-shot. But there is increasing pressure for others to not merely “live and let live”, but to vocally and militantly champion the movement and target any who oppose their ideology until they are bullied into silence. Most of those doing so are the increasingly propagandized youth, who will sadly and terrifyingly make up the majority voting block in the not too distant future. They are not independently thinking, but regurgitating talking points being fed to them on a daily basis by their “teachers” and favorite celebrities. Conservative voices in the media like Ben Shapiro or Tucker Carlson are far outnumbered by liberal voices and conservative voices in Entertainment are nearly non-existent.
In all of this, incrementally, the Bible was jettisoned in favor of pop-psychology, celebrity opinion, and so forth. God’s word, which at one time was the moral engine that drove this nation, has become not merely obsolete, but a source of indignation to the liberals who largely fill these spheres. They hate God’s word because they hate God. And if they hate God, whether they know it or not, they hate people and cannot possibly love them. God Himself is love, and therefore He must be the supreme object of love if true love is to flow in any sense to others. Love cannot be understood properly outside of the character of God Himself. Most people, in voicing their “love” for others, write dead checks which cannot be cashed because their account is empty; confusing God-sourced love with capricious emotions and selfish desires.
Mario Lopez & GMA
Mario Lopez was recently on the Candace Owens Show, where the topic of transgenderism was being discussed, specifically as it relates to raising transgender children. He said it was “dangerous as a parent” to make the determination that their child was a different gender. For his opinion on this topic, the liberal left are now seeking to destroy him in typical fascist form. In the same interview he said,
you suffer consequences in this business, if you don’t fall in line.”
The unwitting “prophet”, Mr. Lopez, saw this fulfilled shortly after the release of the interview. He unfortunately (and likely due to motives of job preservation) retracted his comments, saying,
The comments I made were ignorant and insensitive, and I now have a deeper understanding of how hurtful they were.”
Not to take aim at an easy target, but it is precisely this kind of cowardice which paves the way for monstrous regression. His comments were not only not “ignorant” or “insensitive”, but arguably too soft. The diplomacy with which he approached the topic could more rightly be critiqued than what is actually being critiqued. This is not intended to be a lambasting or a defense of Mario Lopez, but rather a brief analysis of the bafflingly hypocritical, immoral and irrational position of this particular issue of raising transgender children.
In November of 2018, Good Morning America hosted 11 year old Desmond Napoles who goes by the moniker “Desmond Is Amazing”. Michael Strahan, host of GMA, called Desmond a “trailblazing drag kid”. This video has amassed nearly 800,000 views and currently has a like to dislike ratio of about 1:20. That is, one like for every 20 dislikes with the current dislike total at around 41 thousand. It is actually surprising that they have not disabled this statistic, but nevertheless good to see.
The child is largely being exploited and prostituted, so to speak, in this propaganda scheme and is not in a position to know what he is doing as we will break down in a moment. The morally destitute and completely degenerate hosts of GMA were only out-debauched by the child-abusing parents and the 3 grown drag queens that were invited on the show to speak of how inspired they were. The drag men encouraged Desmond to do what he wishes to do and to be who he wants to be. This is the future and you had better brace yourself for a moral quagmire typically reserved for the dark web and FBI files. What was once not even considered is now all but being forced. Our society is crumbling before our eyes.
The “Transgender Children” Conundrum
We should first note the societal parameters put on children; the restraints and harnesses that have been in place with specific relation to a person’s age. Here is a brief list of things with an age requirement:
Signing A Legal Contract
Each of these different categories has attached to it an age requirement which is largely, if not exclusively, based upon mental development and maturity. In order to vote, schedule an appointment with a Dr., and own a gun, one must be at least 18 years old; a legal adult. To be issued a driver’s license or to acquire a job, one must be at least 16 years of age. But why are there restrictions for these things? (The fact that this must be addressed at all is evidence of our downfall). It is the acknowledgement of society and medical professionals that brain development and therefore the ability to make sound and rational decisions on a consistent basis are largely precluded before a certain age. It is not only for the safety of the youth that they are disallowed from engaging in certain activities, but also for the safety of society at large. For example, a two-year-old child is incapable of mentally processing language efficiently, much less the function of a firearm and the ramifications of mishandling one. Therefore, it would be such an act of negligence to permit them to play with a firearm that one could be tried with child endangerment if they do. Let’s begin here:
Since California is often the hub of debased activity, we will examine their laws specifically for a brief moment. In California, child endangerment occurs when one “Willfully causes or permits a minor to be placed in a dangerous situation.” or when one “Causes or permits a minor to suffer unjustifiable physical pain or mental suffering.” While I could quote every specific section and subsection from California’s penal code on “child endangerment” it is not necessary. The very law itself is predicated on the fact that minors are dependent upon adults for safety and provision, not merely due to physical differences, but due to quantifiable mental differences. Suffice it so say that when an adult “Willfully causes or permits a child to suffer unjustiﬁable physical pain or mental suffering” (to quote but one section), they are guilty of child endangerment, because of the minor’s inferior mental abilities as compared to those of the adult. A minor (someone under 18) does not legally possess the mental faculties necessary to calculate danger to themselves or others. The legality of this is based on scientific and experiential evidence which conclusively proves the children are incapable of making consistently rational decisions as their brains are still in development. Any father who has been to a little girl’s tea party knows that, while fun and cute, they are hardly capable of business management.
Every state in the U.S. has an “age of consent” law which typically ranges from 16-18 years of age. Some states have a “close in age exemption” which will allow for consent with a partner below the age of 30. But for all of this, we have felony pedophile laws in every state. Why? Because children are not capable of making rational decisions about sexuality, unless you ask a liberal moron. Even if a three-year-old were to say that they consented to sex with a 50 year old man, the law would rightly and evidently condemn that monster as a pedophile who is taking advantage of someone with an underdeveloped brain. This is an undeniable and objectively provable scientific reality. Most neuroscientists today agree that the brain is not fully developed until at least the mid twenties which means that even our currently settled age for “legal adult” of 18 is questionable, much less young children.
Since it is a scientific and observable reality that children are in a habitual state of irrationality when compared with adults, such that they are placed in the mandatory care and guidance of adults for the good of society, we understand why these laws came about in the first place. Children are so incapable of making these decisions with clarity that adults go to prison when they violate age of consent laws and children typically must receive extensive counseling. Chris Hansen’s popular Dateline show “To Catch A Predator”, which first aired in 2004, lured men who were stalking teens online for sex into a home filled with hidden cameras and police. They marvelously ensnared these men and the show was a hit for several reasons, not the least of which is that sane people realize the necessity of exposing such monsters. Leave it to the liberal left to attempt to pave the way for open pedophilia. How do they do this you ask? It’s quite simple really.
Transgender Children Treated Like Adults
“Gender Identity” is a topic which is inextricably linked to sexual orientation. As laws of consent dictate, we know that minors are not capable of making rational decisions of this nature. Therefore, it is inconceivable that we would allow them to make decisions about sexuality in one sense but not in another. They are of the same basic nature. To tell a child that they are capable of determining their own biological identity or sexual orientation on one hand, but to prevent them from consenting to sexual activity on the other hand is wildly inconsistent and incoherent. It is, frighteningly, only a matter of time before this bridge is inevitably crossed as deranged liberals have been working overtime to build this pedophile dystopia whether they vocalize it or not. This is the inevitable and logical outworking of the groundwork that has already been laid.
Children are not allowed to cast a vote for a political candidate, but they are now being allowed to determine what has already been genetically determined for them. If transgenderism is indicative of delusion or mental instability even in adults with fully developed brains, how much less coherent is the espousal coming from “transgender children” who have provably underdeveloped brains? If children are not capable of understanding government, then they are not capable of understanding biology, and as we have determined, they are not even capable of understanding basic things like how to get food for themselves. The vocalization from a child that he wants to be “identified” as a girl rather than a boy, for example, is no different than the vocalization that the same child wants to be identified as a legal adult or a zebra. This is feeling-based desire, which when heeded, opens up the world of nightmare-ish irrationality. On this liberal logic, children must also be declared fit to own firearms, sign legal contracts and run for public office. Where do we draw the line? Soon, the next mayor of California may be a 10 year old kid. I wish this was merely a hyperbolic joke, but this is a foreseeable reality if liberalism prevails. Out the window with “age of consent” laws, firearms laws, drinking laws, driving laws, medical laws, etc. Our society is on the verge of absolute chaos and total moral anarchy. I don’t think people truly grasp how dangerous this is and just how abusive those championing this mode of thinking are.
As the bible went from the backseat, to the trunk, to a trashcan on side of the proverbial highway, we have seen a steady and undeniable moral regression in American society. We have now reached “critical mass” as it were. Though the GMA video shows a very clear disapproval rate of 20:1, this has not translated to anything more than a thumbs down count on a YouTube video. I marvel that there are not protesters outraged that this child abuse is allowed to continue. How are the parents not in prison? Mario Lopez may be fired from Access Hollywood for daring to say that raising transgender children is not a wise decision, but my question is this: how are those who have authority over him and are defending this not being publicly scrutinized for their defense of what can clearly be described as child endangerment? Orwell didn’t have enough ink or a vivid enough imagination, even in the dark recesses, to predict such complete moral breakdown. There is, however, one author Who predicted this very thing:
And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a debased mind, to do those things which are not fitting; being filled with all unrighteousness, sexual immorality, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, evil-mindedness; they are whisperers, backbiters, haters of God, violent, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, undiscerning, untrustworthy, unloving, unforgiving, unmerciful; who, knowing the righteous judgment of God, that those who practice such things are deserving of death, not only do the same but also approve of those who practice them.” (Romans 1:28-32)
But know this, that in the last days perilous times will come: For men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, unloving, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, despisers of good, traitors, headstrong, haughty, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God,having a form of godliness but denying its power. And from such people turn away!” (2 Timothy 3:1-5)
Anyone who is even mildly in doubt about the danger of encouraging “transgender children” is not, nor can they be considered a Christian in any sense. Hyper-progressive liberalism is so at odds with biblical Christianity as to be strictly in accord with the ploys of Satan. While being a conservative is no assurance one is necessarily a true Christian, being a liberal Democrat in 21st Century America is proof positive that one is not a Christian and, in fact, is hostile to God in every way.
Joshua, it is a sad state of affairs the world and especially America finds itself in. The only peace I get in all of it is knowing that these things are temporary and they will be burned up by our Lord and Savior. It’s just so sad that so many must suffer. The children will come to the Lord but those parents will be forever lost..So sad..
Very thorough article exposing the veracity of this wickness that only a reprobate mind would refute it..and they are plenty. The ending Scriptures surely sum up the truth of it all. My heart is heavy and I am sickened that MANY professing “Christians” are turning a blind eye and deaf ear to it all, and I wonder, are they the very ones described as the first in the list of the following passage?..Revelation 21:8
But the fearful(cowardly), and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.
Excellent article, back when I used to watch television it occurred to me one day that whether it’s late night talk shows , ESPN, morning shows, game shows, news programs, they rarely, if ever, factor in biblical truth, movies either for that matter. Entertainment and media are controlled by a world system underpinned with satanic influence and these puppets are under a strong delusion that they are evolving through acceptance and tolerance of alternative lifestyles when in actuality they are promoting and endorsing lifestyles which are an abomination in the sight of a holy God. Also, thank you for magnifying the hypocrisy of underage laws which exclude choosing gender…and yes, that child is being exploited, as many others have before and since, by a world that cares only for self promotion and material gain… check this article out Josh.
—Jason in NC
I have 2 boys under the age of 5 & a third on the way. This movement scares me, like to my core, makes me cry, considered having no more children scares me. I pray for my boys, for the people they interact with and for God’s peace regularly. I just finished reading Shepherding a Child’s Heart and learned much about the sin within a child and the Holy Spirit reminded me that it is my job to teach them the fear of the LORD, about the sinful nature we’re born with, about our need for Jesus. Moreover, I have seen that when my 2 year old comes to me to paint his nails, it is innocent in that he is mimicking me – his mother, and it’s my job to teach him about boys and girls and that boys don’t paint their nails. When he comes to me and says he wants to be a girl, I see that for what it is, a child needing instruction as to who he is- not a child capable of discerning that he feels like a girl on the inside and therefore should be a girl. I am baffled that people are falling for the devil’s scheme when it is SO Blatant. This kid is the same one who can’t wipe his own butt, he can’t form a sentence with more than 5 words, he can’t provide food for himself and he can’t recognize a simple pattern. Proverbs tells us over and over to train, discipline, love, and repeat. The hypocrisy that the ungodly are championing is insane at best, fetuses don’t matter, stop sexual abuse (#metoo movement), love knows no age, sodomy is still a felony, ask your baby for permission before changing their diaper, choose your sexual organs to match your inside feeling, stop sex trafficking, and on and on and on. From my point of view I see children being attacked, stolen, and recruited for evil by evil. What do I do? How do I fight? I pray, I speak truth, I disassociate, I protect, I teach, I discipline, I read. I don’t know what else to do. Sometimes I feel like I’m on an island with my kids and I’m shielding them while we’re being yelled at that “we’re gonna get them!” Oh no you won’t evil world! God’s faithfulness, Jesus’ strength, community of believers- no you won’t.
I can SO relate to your situation! I’m a Christian wife and mother of seven (ages 19 month twins, 3, 9, 10, 12, 24). I’m SO grateful that the Lord opened my eyes to the debauchery and evil of this world’s systems. He convicted and led me out of the educational system in 2008. Sadly, I had spent ten years as a so-called “educator” there, while leaving my own children to be raised by my unsaved mother and/or unsaved strangers at a daycare center. Still MORE sadly, due to circumstances beyond my control, I had to leave my children behind when I resigned. During that entire time, I had the sickening, overwhelming feeling that I’d escaped a burning building and left my children behind to burn. Thankfully, by the providence and grace of God, I was enabled to bring them out of that debauched system in 2017 and began homeschooling. And I can honestly say, I haven’t had ONE day of regret!
Anyway, for what it’s worth (the glory of God I hope!), I just wanted to let you know that you’re NOT alone 🙂.
Yours in Christ,
anything to do with politics and right, left movements are wicked beyond our imagination follow the money and you will see it does not matter liberalism conservatism all of it is garbage follow the word and get close to Christ is all we can do.
Thank you very much Joshua for sharing this information, I knew things were pretty bad but not to this extreme. Not only has The Lord shown me through your Ministry of what going on but also of what circle’s I’ve been rescued from…I was so blind then and Deceived beyond my current understanding:( I find myself in tears often because of these Terrible Truth’s. But Yes! The Lord of Host is going to bring it all down one soon day and will also cleans it with fire. “We Should Recognize it as The Spirit of Anti-Christ” He The Savior Christ Jesus will Show and Train Us his Children How to be Fisherman of Men as We Declare “Rak-Chazak”!!! For His Glory Beloved Children of The Lord Most Highest to His Praise and Glory Amen…
