I YouTubed a lecture of young lady named Carol discussing her experiences growing up.

When 9 years old, she became aware that in place of her ovaries she had testes inside and also did not have a uterus. In all other ways her anatomy was female. She and parents were presented with these facts and some medical options at this young age. It was difficult for her and she opted out of surgery. Her family was very supportive and considering what she has gone through, she seems well adjusted. Carol reports 2% or more Americans have divergent sexualities. If this is so, then traditional gender training or common gender identity confusion counseling do not seem appropriate (as if they ever were).

Many of us gain comfort in thinking in terms of black or white, right or wrong, male-female, hot-cold, good-evil and similar choices. Truth is we don’t live in a binary world of such stark choices. There are many shades of gray and many variations. To look at things as either-or sets up a mentality where we are less likely to understand reality. Alternatively, directional thinking can be seen as a series of successive approximations where we keep the machinery moving as we adapt to an ever-changing complex world, learn new information and find new solutions. Sometimes it’s better to humbly admit a certain lack of understanding than to present solutions that cause more harm.

I bring this up as a way to suggest we move away from binary thinking when formulating public policy. We know our politicians will say almost anything when chasing votes. Some voters seem content with this but many of us are smarter and would appreciate a more nuanced governance.

Please speak up more and express your views. Influence others and make a difference. Encourage our elected officials to be leaders in smarter thinking not just populist mouthpieces and vote chasers.

Be brave like Carol.

True Christians care more about their God-given right to exclude perverts from their Faith than boycotts from Heretic athletic organizations, customer-seeking corporations and woke liberals who care more about “diversity and unity” than the purity that comes from following God's Word.

The Founding Fathers were White Christians, and that says all you need to know about what America was meant to be.

Only Republicans have the courage to insist that we resist both the weakening of our cherished foundational principles and the pollution of our original demographics by inferior ethnic groups.

There is a reason that polls show that some 70% of Republicans know that marginalized White Americans are now the group most discriminated against in this new diverse nightmare of American.

I don't know what bible your reading but that is NOT the teachings of God.

Out of the multi‑ listings of Genesis 10‑11, God chose one family, Terah's, and one person, Abraham, to be a blessing to the world. As God promised him, "all the peoples on earth will be blessed through you" (Genesis 12:3). Such blessedness does NOT obliterate the diversity of the peoples. That was the MISTAKE of the Judaizers, who sought to make Gentiles into Jews before they could be received into the church as Christians. Rather, the blessedness of reconciliation affirms the potential validity of a multitude of cultural expressions.

Meaning: ALL PEOPLE are blessed the believe in God, not just Man/Woman/Other but ALL.

You are one of the Judaizers and are not a TRUE Christian if you believe even half the BS you preach.

There are at least a half dozen passages in the Bible that give us God's Word on this abomination:

✝️ Genesis 19: The story of Sodom and Gomorrah, ✝️ Leviticus 18:22, ✝️ Leviticus 20:13, ✝️ 1 Corinthians 6:9-10, ✝️ 1 Timothy 1:10, and ✝️ Romans 1:26-27.

A pathetically limited knowledge of the Bible is all you have to support your “WOKE Christianity.”

This is why our Churches are empty - because fake Christians would replace God's certainty with their gutless compassion for inferior humans God clearly finds unworthy.

Your kind of Christian doesn’t understand this, but it is why true Christians voted for Trump.

What exactly is a "true" Christian? If I call myself a Christian but voted for Joe Biden, does that mean I am not a "true" Christian?

Gen 19--He destroyed the city because the hearts of the citizen were corrupt and full of hatred of the "foreigners", not in one single line does it say that it was destroyed because they wanted to rape men/ were homosexuals/ect.

As for Leviticus 18: & 20:13 ..... check your avatar :

Try instead Leviticus 19: 4Do not turn to worthless idols or make cast images of gods for yourselves;you sir are GUILTY.....or even try Leviticus 19:18 & 19:33-34....Just saying

1 Corinthians : includes verbally abusing people as BAD, your conduct on this comment section would qualify you in that sense.

1 Timothy:5-7 Now the goal of our instruction is love that comes from a pure heart, a good conscience, and a sincere faith. Some have departed from these and turned aside to fruitless discussion. They want to be teachers of the law, although they don’t understand what they are saying or what they are insisting on.

Try on for size Romans 2:1

also just a fun fact if you want to count yourself a TRUE Christian, shouldn't you follow the book to the letter? instead of picking and choosing the lines that server your selfish purposes or give the feeling that you have a right to judge people....I thought it was only for GOD to judge? I don't recall a part of the book where he tells people that they should be the judges or that they should be the ones offering to act as the executioner. Who do you think you are with your false Idol Avatar...I mean really??? Jesus in a truckers hat?????

shame on you sinner.....shame on you.
