Transgenderism: The Moral Tipping Point?

Print Friendly Version of this pagePrint Get a PDF version of this webpagePDF
Biblical Christians are pretty clear on what the Bible teaches and what we believe about homosexual behavior and all its derivatives, but will the constant moral march down the proverbial slippery slope prove to be a tipping point of different results than the confident homosexual activists are predicting?

June, once known for Father's Day and natural weddings between a man and a women, has been unilaterally declared "Gay Pride Month" by desperate politicians in search of "one more vote" and activists whose desires and passions seem to have no limits.

A misinformed electorate sometimes follows the parade from a distance, feeling good about their personal compassion and tolerance and acceptance and inclusion.

Time magazine recently placed "Orange Is the New Black" star Laverne Cox (born Charles Cox) on the cover as the face of "The Transgender Tipping Point: America's Next Civil Rights Frontier."

Cox wrote on Facebook that the Time cover was a wonderful present on her birthday, and "I realize this is way bigger than me and about a tipping point in our nation's history where it is no longer acceptable for trans lives to be stigmatized, ridiculed, criminalized and disregarded."

Seattle (and other cities across the nation) is abuzz with the "festivities" of this month. In fact, Seattle is featuring the "World's Largest Drag Queen Stage Show In History" this Thursday evening.


There is rising confidence in the homosexual activist community. A vocal, all in, President and administration and deafening silence from too many pastors and religious leaders are giving rise to the confidence of those who advocate and lead the parade.

Last week, US A/G Eric Holder told the LAMBDA convention--a group that advocates for "man-boy" sexual relationships, that if they are qualified to serve in the military, they are certainly "qualified to lead the Boy Scouts as mentors, teachers and as role models."

There is growing concern about this march to destruction.

Brent Bozell, head of Media Research Council and a trusted conservative, Christian voice, has written an article asking where is the proverbial tipping point.

His concern is in regard to religious censorship at a level we have not yet experienced.

I agree with Bozell. But I'm also wondering if the tipping point the gay activists feel they are achieving through transgenderism could also be a tipping point for the average American who is of the mind to stop following this fairy tale of falsehood called "equality?"

Could there be a backlash rooted in both deeply held biblical beliefs and in commonsense itself?

Consider that point of view while you consider Bozell's words.

Now that our cultural elites feel they have sufficiently educated the public on the virtues of gays and lesbians, it's time to drill down to the next level. Here comes transgenderism.

Time magazine placed "Orange Is the New Black" star Laverne Cox (born Charles Cox) on the cover as the face of "The Transgender Tipping Point: America's Next Civil Rights Frontier."

Cox wrote on Facebook that the Time cover was a wonderful present on her birthday, and "I realize this is way bigger than me and about a tipping point in our nation's history where it is no longer acceptable for trans lives to be stigmatized, ridiculed, criminalized and disregarded."

Beware of the words "tipping point." That means Americans will no longer be allowed to express dissent, moral or otherwise, about the choice to discard the oppressive "gender binary" and be whichever blend of genders you choose. Disagree, and you "stigmatize" and "dehumanize" people. You deny them "civil rights." You "criminalize" the innocent.

Washington Post culture blogger Alyssa Rosenberg celebrated this just like Time's helpful 1997 "Yep, I'm Gay" cover for Ellen DeGeneres. "Cox is helping viewers connect a set of issues that might have been abstract to them with the lived experience of someone they admire."

Or as NPR reporter Neda Ulaby instructed in a glowing profile of Cox, her women's-prison drama "'Orange Is the New Black' has won a Peabody for illuminating people too-often dehumanized by their incarceration or their perceived gender difference."

Once again, the show laughably calling itself "All Things Considered" kept its LGBT propaganda unfettered by any consideration of a socially conservative critique.

In response to Time magazine, National Review's Kevin Williamson wrote a column with the apparently inflammatory title "Laverne Cox Is Not a Woman."

Not only did Williamson strike a blow for reality, he dared to write, "The mass delusion that we are inculcating on the question of transgendered people ... would impose on society at large an obligation — possibly a legal obligation under civil-rights law, one that already is emerging — to treat delusion as fact, or at the very least to agree to make subjective impressions superordinate to biological fact in matters both public and private."

The Chicago Sun-Times reprinted this, and then the censorship group with the Orwellian name GLAAD cranked up its outrage. The intolerants forced the Sun-Times to banish the article from its website and confess obsequiously, "Upon further consideration, we concluded the essay did not include some key facts and its overall tone was not consistent with what we seek to publish."

GLAAD's chief whip-cracker Sarah Kate Ellis insisted that stating Cox was not a woman was "ugly and insulting propaganda," and "dangerous to readers' understanding of who transgender people are." Biologically sound dissent is not to be allowed. "These harmful messages about the validity of transgender identity have no place in a credible mainstream publication."

For the full nuttiness of today's gender-bending left, consider GLAAD's conclusion: "Kevin D. Williamson is not the arbiter of who is a woman, nor is the Chicago Sun-Times. It is beneath any reputable national journalistic outlet to reprint such dangerous and false rhetoric."

Don't look at your genitals. Truth is falsehood, and falsehood truth.

GLAAD also forced the firing of a Rochester, New York, radio-show duo who mocked that city's decision to use tax dollars to fund "gender reassignment surgery" for its transgender bureaucrats. The station owners at Entercom Communications apologized profusely: "Their hateful comments against the transgender community do not represent our station or our company."

GLAAD is rising, and freedom of speech in America is dying. Everyone must promote only the glorious fluidity of gender narrative.

Or are the American people about to become morally offended---fed up with this and create a tipping point with a different destination?

Be Discerning. Be Vigilant. Be Informed. Be Strong. Be Prayerful. Be Blessed.

  1. By the time this placid generation becomes morally offended, it will be too late--the lies will be codified in law.

  2. This is all Saul Alinsky crap...."Be so outrageous, talk so goofy that a normal, decent person doesn't know how to handle you." Just say no is the only way to deal with a three year old having an unreasonable tantrum. You don't argue looney demands....put them back in their boxes to do their deviancy in the privacy of their own homes and bedrooms...not out in the open -- barr them from parades (indecent exposure), schools (no more sick sex ed), courts (Free speech works both ways), churches (The Bible is clear--call sin sin). Just say no works. It's election time.....PICK ONE CANDIDATE TO SUPPORT who has the courage to kindly, firmly say no.

  3. It's more than enough to make a nation sick, that's for sure. Absolutely disgusting. How far humanity has fallen! It's in a cesspool!

  5. I am saddened. Most in this nation have no concept of God's judgment. Read the prophets. God was patient with both Israel and Judah before He used Assyria to judge Israel, and Babylon to judge Judah. Both nations were destroyed. God held them to a stricter judgment because they had more light. How much more spiritual light has the USA with the entire Bible. How much more will God's judgment be on this nation unless we repent and turn back to Him and obey in faith His loving commands.
