The demonic exercise of force against truth (coup d’état) that I am addressing here has to do with genders, human beings, and the futility of denying who a person is according to nature, according to basic biology, and most importantly according to the Creator Himself.
As I watched the portion of the April 7 Tucker Carlson show that dealt with transgenderism, I was reminded of just how deep human depravity has sunk. There are so many problems with this cult that one hardly knows where to begin. So let me start with the obvious, which is not an original thought. In Genesis 1:27 we read these words: “God created man in His image; in the divine image He created him; male and female He created them.”
This is not only the word of God; it is the last word. Whether you like it or not, there are no caveats in Scripture. There is no fudging on that statement, which is why it is safe to say that transgenderism is delusional; it is among the “false beliefs that fly in the face of common sense, rational thinking, and even scientific evidence.”
Having said that, we recognize that even though it has become a type of religion, transgenderism represents the very worst of Gnosticism—a mindset that denies the existence of God and actually treats man as his own god. Thus, the fact is that Gnosticism is a pagan religion—a cult from which the transgender movement grew.
While this would make an excellent topic for research if it weren’t so prevalent today, we still wonder where transgenderism began, but we don’t have to contemplate this for very long.
It all began with Margaret Sanger, foundress of Planned Parenthood. She launched the short-lived monthly magazine The Woman Rebel, which had as its motto, “No gods, no masters.” Her hedonistic goal of providing women with a product that would render them infertile so that they could bear children only when they wanted to started the journey that has brought us to transgenderism.
Now, we’ve come a long way, baby! And I am not talking about a song by Loretta Lynn, but rather a societal suicide mission that is looking darker than ever. This has become obvious to many, including the secular media.
Paul Kingsnorth, for example, wrote, “The transgender moment is not just about gender. In some ways, in fact, gender is not even the main attraction in the circus. Rather, it is the catalyst for wider changes that are engulfing us. Those changes represent a breakdown in our shared understanding of what it means to be human, the logic of which has barely begun to play out.”
This is a reality in our lives today that we dare not ignore. This is so because it is a sign that, in the midst of all that folks confront in their daily lives, they must now consider the possibility that evil has become the common good, lest we insult someone who prefers pandering to Satan instead of faithfully following God.
My dear friend Mary Rice Hasson, daughter of the late Professor Charles Rice, recently wrote this about the victims of gender ideology:
Several families have successfully helped their daughters reject the trans mirage and embrace their female identities. Others are still fighting for their kids’ lives, because their kids are still caught in what some describe as the transgender cult. Those who succeeded did so by removing their children from the public school and cutting off social media and friends who (were) encouraging their children’s transitions. Another family I know actually moved to a different part of the state because the promotion of transgender ideology was so pervasive—and their child was very vulnerable.
An entire book, or perhaps many books, could be written about this latest evil that has crept into our world, but suffice it to say, Satan is having a field day. He has convinced people that killing their babies is a human right, and now he is assuring them that the words male and female are meaningless.
The body of Christ is repeatedly wounded by such evil, and I am reminded of these profound words of Bother John Paul Puschautz, OP: “Jesus’ Sacred wounds are the trophies of His victory over death and the proof of His love for us. Jesus shows His disciples His wounds and invites us to touch them and take refuge in them.”
As it has always been, our hope for the best way to overcome evil is to be totally immersed in Christ so that we can be strong enough to fight.
