I am also voting for sexual sanity.
I don’t suppose there is anything more fundamental to life than the notion of male and female. Whether we look at lions or tigers or bears, the animal kingdom survives because of this basic, yet amazingly awesome reality: God created life and delegated to it the responsibility and privilege to unite as male and female and bring forth fruit… producing new life. He even created the plant world with “male and female” characteristics and their central charge was to be fruitful... agents of life. When He then came to Adam, God even emphasized that this creature, made in the image of God, was incomplete until the Creator formed the female. He then brought them together and charged them as well to “be fruitful and increase in number”. It is important to look again at the words the Holy Spirit moved Moses to write concerning this moment in creation:
“So God created mankind in his own image,
in the image of God he created them;
male and female he created them.” Genesis 1:27
God is socially complex. He exists as three persons in one. Unity and diversity. When He created man in His image, He created great diversity (wow!) in the male and female, and then brought them together in an exquisite unity… a unity meant to glorify God and produce godly offspring (Malachi 2:15).
This is so fundamental to life and the human race that it would be insanity to deny this reality.
Yet, here we are, marching toward sexual insanity.
The current administration, U.S. Department of Education and the U.S. Department of Justice sent a “Dear Colleague” letter to all academia (May 13 2016). In that letter was the threat of the loss of federal funds and possibly prosecution if schools discriminated in any way against (read this carefully) sexual orientation, gender identity or gender expression. Specifically expressed in the letter were:
Schools must not test a transgender student’s sincerity when proclaiming his or her transgender status: no birth certificate, diagnosis, treatment or other requirements.
Schools must use the name and pronouns requested by the transgender student. (If an 8 year old insists he/she is some Avatar mutant who must be referred to as “Zin” and pronouns “ve” and “vis”, schools have no choice but to comply.)
Schools must permit the transgender student to use facilities consistent with their gender identity and may not insist on individual-user facilities.
Schools may not utilize stereotypes of transgender students regarding their participation on athletic teams. (This should bring an end to things like “Men’s volleyball” or “Women’s soccer”.)
The Clinton/Kaine Platform and Team will continue this insanity and most likely expand it.
Don’t be fooled into thinking that this is an election between two personalities (personalities that are, suffice it to say, less than perfect). That is what you are meant to think. But it is much more than that. There is a worldview behind the Clinton/Kaine Platform that is seeking to further entrench this insanity as well as the insanity regarding life and marriage and issues yet to be discussed such as religious freedom, a tsunami of debt, and the continual rise of the federal beast, which should be scaring the pants off of all of us.
Again, on the issue of sexuality, the two party positions are polar opposites.
I’m voting for sexual sanity.
I encourage you to consider doing the same.
P.S. Briefly, here is what is happening. When we, as a culture, reject the notion of a Transcendent right and wrong, expelling from the public square the reality of God, then the state will, for a time, promote the notion that the individual is divine and carries the innate right to determine their own truth and identity. Miley Cirus declares herself/himself/itself as a “pan-sexual” who is not tied to the suffocating transcendent notion of male and female. A student can declare to be an Avatar mutant, and we must bow to “Zin’s” self-declaration. The divine individual can declare that a Bible on a POW display offends them and we must submit to his divine sensitivities and comply. BUT, do not be deceived! The state only allows this for a time, in order to destroy the transcendent foundations. Then it will crush the individual. This has been the demonic order of all the nations in the past. It was the lie of Satan to Eve, who promised her divine prerogatives and desires, only to lure her into destruction. It extends to Marxism and Communism that fools the “proletariat” with the same promises in order to topple the “bourgeois” only to later enslave the people. It is the march of all political power unbridled by "religion and morality" as the Founders put it.
All of this is insanity… discarding true reality for momentary pleasure that leads to death.
Do not give in to it.
