The kryptonite of the marriage battle is transgender legal theory. The reason is simple: if a person ultimately can choose gender, then marriage laws that require a man to marry a woman would “accommodate” two men marrying if one of the men “identified” as being a woman.
The radical Left knows this and is working fastidiously to leaven the next generation of society: our children. One frightening example is a manual entitled: Beyond the Binary: A Tool Kit for Gender Identity Activism in Schools. Here we are greeted with a step by step process for indoctrinating children and their schools. There, students are told that “gender identity” is “a person’s internal, deeply-felt sense of being either male, female, something other, or in between.” Say what??!!
Then there is this choice non-definition: “Genderqueer refers to people who do not identify as, or who do not express themselves as completely male or female. Genderqueer people may or may not identify as transgender.” Which means exactly what??!!
And, gender identity, because it is utterly subjective, is mutable and fluid. As one “testimony” related: “In my four years of high school . . . . I have identified as a lesbian female, a gender-neutral omni-sexual, and now, as a gay transgender boy . . .” How Convenient.
Can anyone see Casey’s “mystery of life” passage gone to seed? Of course, this is nothing new: In those days there was no king in Israel. Everyone did what was right in his own eyes (Judges 21:25, ESV).
What is new is that these activists are seeking to have their deviant practices approved by the culture, that is, codified, just as Paul indicated, Romans 1:32.
The worst response to such developments is to dismiss them as something ripe for a Jerry Springer Show audition. The ramifications of “transgender orthodoxy” would be Copernican to the legal system, but not in a positive way. The right response is to Passionately Demonstrate Truth.
