Sen. Patty Murray: "For The Love Of God" Support Transgenderism

Republicans introduced a bill this week intended to create "equality" for women.

One woman, Sen. Patty Murray (D-WA), was not happy about it.

In fact, she said, "Republicans introduced an amendment that was simply an attempt to discriminate against transgender students."

She called on "God's love" in blasting the Republicans.

Someone is confused.

Is it Patty, the Republicans, or God?

Be informed, not misled.

Her tweet was posted at about 7:30 AM yesterday morning. No question she was bothered about the previous day's actions.

Washington State's high-ranking public servant began with, "Republicans introduced an amendment that was simply an attempt to discriminate against transgender students."

She continued: "My response: For the love of God, can't we just have a little bit of heart & compassion in this world for someone who doesn't look or live exactly like you?"

Patty doesn't care what my response might be. But if she did, it would be something like this: 

"Hi Patty, I do love God and that's why I strongly object to my government enabling children who have been confused---in great part through indoctrination in government run public education---about their gender. These children need to be helped, not celebrated. If you were motivated by compassion rather than politics, you too would want to help rather than enable them, because science and history confirms they are on a path that is personally destructive. And God's love calls for more than enabling."

The Republicans did what?

Sen. Murray has discerned their motives and declared to the press that the amendment to the nearly $2 trillion COVID-relief bill was nothing more than discrimination.

Murray, the chairwoman of the Senate Health Committee, was slamming Sen. Tommy Tuberville (R-AL), a former head football coach at Auburn and Texas Tech University, for his amendment that caused the Senate and her committee to "vote through the night." And it was a discriminating amendment.

Tuberville, having spent his life in college sports, had sponsored an amendment that would have blocked government funding from public schools that allows biological boys, who claim they are girls, to compete against biological girls in sports.

Tuberville claimed it was needed to "protect the integrity of women's sports," but Murray and her far-left radical colleagues see it differently. Much differently.

They apparently weigh equality on a scale that prefers transgenders to biological women that are simply born that way---little girls that grow up to be women and mothers and leaders. 

Coach Tuberville, now Republican Senator Tuberville, framed his debate and amendment as a Title IX issue, arguing it was needed to protect the integrity of women's sports---and he said, "It would ensure funding goes to schools" that are "focused on COVID supplies and recovery rather than pushing a liberal agenda."

Patty was mad.

She was also mad at Doctor and Senator Rand Paul, a couple of weeks ago, when he questioned Biden's nominee for assistant health secretary, Dr. Rachel Levine---formerly "Richard" Levine when he asked, "Do you believe that minors are capable of making such a life-changing decision as changing one's sex?"

Levine answered, "Transgender medicine is a very complex and nuanced field with robust research and standards of care that have been developed. If I am fortunate enough to be confirmed as assistant secretary of health, I will look forward to working with you and your office and coming to your office and discussing the particulars of the standards of care for transgender medicine."

I think all that means "yes," minors are capable of those decisions--- with my help.

ABC 7 reported that Senator Patty Murray strongly criticized Sen Paul saying to Levine, "I appreciated your thoughtful and medically informed response to Sen. Paul's questions..."

Later that afternoon, Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer addressed some of the "comments made by Republicans"---without naming names---calling the questions "despicable" he said, "Their attacks on trans a complete lack of understanding, complete lack of empathy."

Neither federal lawmakers nor courts should have the power to redefine what it is to be a man or a woman---neither should "science."

Who is really weighed in the balances and found wanting on this issue?

Nearly all studies---from homosexual rights activist organizations like HRC to medical groups like Harvard Health, WebMD, and others all agree that the mental health crises among so-called "transgender" people are at crisis levels. Suicide rates are spiking among transgenders.

In October of 2019, the American Journal of Psychiatry published a paper titled, "Reduction in Mental Health Treatment Utilization Among Transgender Individuals After Gender-Affirming Surgeries: A Total Study.

The big news was that "The paper claimed that after having sex-reassignment surgeries, a patient is less likely to need mental health treatment."

The study group claimed to have a dataset of 9.7 million people.

Almost immediately, the authors of the Total Population Study issued a correction. In fact, they said the "results demonstrated no advantage of surgery in relation to subsequent mood or anxiety disorder-related health care."

What led to the correction? A deluge of criticisms and letters to the editors from the health and science community.

It should also be noted that the original study found that patients who had surgeries suffered more mental issues than those who had not had surgeries. 

Ryan T Anderson, writing for the Heritage Foundation, points out that the study found that a "clinic may have to perform as many as 49 gender affirming surgeries before they could expect to prevent one additional person from seeking additional mental health assistance."

Sadly, such surgeries can have deadly consequences. Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services pointed out, "The study identified increased mortality and psychiatric hospitalization compared to matched controls. The mortality was primarily due to completed suicides, which was 19.1-times greater."

These results are tragic. And they directly contradict most popular media narratives, as well as many "snapshot" type studies---funded by activist money that take no historical arc into consideration. These tragic results do not happen overnight but over time.

Ryan T. Anderson writes in his book, "When Harry Became Sally," gender dysphoria is a serious condition."


Now the world's largest relevant database reveals hormones and surgeries don't bring wholeness and happiness.

There must be a better way than "Patty's" way of celebrating this serious condition.

But maybe Sen. Murray is on to one possible solution---"the love of God."

Someone is confused. Clearly, those following the studies are either finding the present response to those suffering from the condition are not being helped by current "science."

Republicans are right to protect society from the blizzard of legislation being blown across the culture, but there are no solutions in their protective actions. And they know it, but they are doing what they can. Thank goodness.

About the love of God.

The people suffering from this serious condition deserve to be respected in their suffering.

And they deserve to know the Truth. And the enduring, eternal Truth is that in the beginning, God created male and female, and if we stay within God's truth, we will discover the ultimate, lasting, restorative solutions for those who suffer from this dysphoria---and a thousand other human conditions that we ourselves cannot solve. 

Be Informed. Be Discerning. Be Vigilant. Be Prayerful.
