Homosexuality is as ancient as prostitution and both are recorded in the Bible as a thing. However, transgenderism and allowing people to choose their sexual identity and reversing pronouns according to gender is a little bit weird.
History records the homosexual lifestyles of many well-known people who hid their identities from society for years. Only within the last 30 years have American society taken homosexuality and gender issues to another level and introduced laws that protect the lifestyles against criticism.
Regardless of how intertwined the lifestyle has become within society, there are still many people who are uncomfortable with the homosexuality and its people. Yet, Democratic policies continue to push this on society in additional forms and ways that not many people are ready to accept as normal.
Men identifying as women to compete in sports is one such policy people are not ready for. Allowing people to choose their identity and forcing others to use pronouns that identify with their choice is another.
A bigger mistake is to write laws that force people to acknowledge the wording of identity or face law suits and financial ruin because they refuse to comply. Personal lifestyle and government legalities do not mix very well in a society not ready to accept such drastic changes.
What the Republicans are doing is appealing to those who are not quite ready to accept this lifestyle and ways of gender identity. This is only natural that people will resist something that is not normal in their world. So the Democrats are losing many voters on this issue.
Likewise, laws written that prohibit people from speaking certain words or teaching certain things (that are in fact true) such as the many laws being passed that prohibit the fallacy of Critical Race Theory being taught in schools will not mix well in a society so used to reading and knowing the truth.
These culture wars are a waste of time, tax-payers money, and mental energy and take away from the problems society faces that are more important, such as poverty, justice, care for others, and peace among the nations.
The church should not waste the word and power of God on such matters of culture and should be focused on the things that do matter: judgment, mercy, and faith. “Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye pay tithe of mint and anise and cummin, and have omitted the weightier matters of the law, judgment, mercy, and faith: these ought ye to have done, and not to leave the other undone.” Matthew 23:23.
While people are distracted with such cultural wars, society is losing ground in other areas. They struggle with debt, illnesses, hunger, domestic violence, family dysfunction, drug abuse, and much more. Pushing the transgender agenda is worthless and is seen by many as unnatural, harmful to children, and a little bit weird.
