I make these comments on an article which appeared in a national daily newspaper two days ago.
Its subject matter would cause one to hold one’s head in one’s hands in utter despair for our nation!
Sincerely in Christ’s name,
An article appeared in the London newspaper: ‘The Telegraph’ dated 6th August. It had the headline:
‘I will not put my girls in that organisation’: How a trans crisis engulfed Girlguiding
The crisis centres upon the claim “recent developments have left some parents fearing the needs of boys who feel they are female are being put above those of their daughters.”
“In its current summer newsletter, Girlguiding – the organisation formerly known as the Girl Guides – shares the real-life story of a recent recruit welcomed warmly into Rainbows, the organisation’s youngest tier for four-to-seven-year-old girls. The child in question – a lover of dolls and scarves and dresses, we are told, who wants to be called “Rainbow” – is biologically male, though his mother says in the article that his “true gender” is female.”
The article goes on:
“The circulation of ‘Rainbow’s story’ to the 290,000 girls between four and 18 who are members of Rainbows, Brownies, Guides and Rangers has caused a storm of protest among parents. “I found it horrific reading,” says Catherine, a former nursery teacher and mother of three from north London, whose eight-year-old daughter is currently a Brownie.
“I really object to my child being used as a prop in this social experiment of pretending that biological males can be girls. Girlguiding is telling my daughter that something that isn’t true, is true. And to think the opposite is wrong.”
Far from being woke and progressive, she says, the tone of the article – that those who like dolls and dresses are girls – is, she argues, “wholly regressive in terms of sexist stereotyping. I was a girl in the 1980s who preferred train sets and play fights, but it never occurred to me that I was a boy. And no-one suggested it to me.”
At the heart of this unspeakable folly is the ‘mother’, a complete fool, mentioned at the start of the article. “The child in question – a lover of dolls and scarves and dresses, we are told, who wants to be called “Rainbow” – is biologically male, though his mother says in the article that his “true gender” is female.”
The mother of this spoiled brat, who is encouraged to think of himself as a ‘girl’, is the cretin in this story. She is but one of an increasing number of ‘mothers’ who have swallowed the lie of the promoters of the ‘trans-inclusive cult’.
Behind this all, from a human point of view is ‘Stonewall, the LGBT rights organisation’. This evil organisation has said that it aims to ‘empower members to find their voice and discover the best in themselves.’
The whole matter is a hyped-up Satanic fantasy, for the devil is the real power behind the whole confused lunacy.
One protesting mother has already been quoted: “I was a girl in the 1980s who preferred train sets and play fights, but it never occurred to me that I was a boy. And no-one suggested it to me.”
It was, of course, then ‘beyond the pale’ to think what now has beguiled so many parents who wish to be considered ‘woke’ and up-to-date on all modern trends!
In truth, the trend is not modern at all. Rather, it stems from the devil deceiving sinners into abandoning the natural order instituted by the Lord and in consequence, the Lord “gave them up unto their own hearts’ lust: and they walked in their own counsels,” Psalm 81:12.
That truth is repeated by the apostle Paul in his epistle to the Romans.
“Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves: who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen. For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature: and likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet. And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient (proper),” Romans 1:24-28.
It is to be noted most carefully that this downward spiralling began with a departure from religious truth.
“Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened. Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools, And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things,” Romans 1:21-23.
It is no coincidence that this ‘crop of corruption’ has sprung up in a day when in pulpit and pew there is an utter rejection of the Bible’s revelation of God and His eternal purpose amongst men. Having turned away from God men have reaped the Lord’s retaliatory turning away from them. We find those caught up in this rebellion following their own depraved and foolish notions, aided of course by the devil!
Those are the origins of the thinking of that daft, that idiot of a ‘mother’ who says that though her child is biologically male, his “true gender is female.”
I say again, this all started in the pulpits, spread to the pew and now has contaminated ever so many in society.
In the end, it will bring the wrath of God down upon a world increasingly ready to embrace every ‘anti-God’ notion that hell scatters amongst the nations.
“For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness; . . . . But we are sure that the judgment of God is according to truth against them which commit such things,” Romans 1:18 and 2:2.
