Messages, messages! They keep pouring in; Making me more and more confused; For sure, It is Father’s Day; And I am a father, But hardly did I know What my eyes see; I never expected a down pour; You know what I mean; Truly, I never did; Didn’t know anyone cared; Are you a father? And does anyone care; That you are a father? I am highly impressed; And deeply.touched; To see someone cares; No one but many people care; Care is the word; It’s so profound; I know what their bosom has; What my progeny has in their hearts; Such tender words That touch my heart; Yes, we do the best we can; But are we always understood? Thank God when you are; Yes, I am happy; Thank you for making my day; A happy father, indeed. That’s my Father’s Day. A fathers Father’s Day.
On this Father’s Day, I ponder the relevance of the first man on earth and the ancestral father of humankind. Through Adam’s transgression, sin entered the human race. We should be angry with him because his disobedience brought death to humanity and separated us from God. But even with this rough beginning, Adam still shared a close relationship with the Lord. He set the stage for many future generations of fathers.
The relevance of Adam is great, for the Lord taught to him how to be a father, husband, and leader. Men, today, have lost many of his attributes through the centuries, but let’s review some of those original traits.
He was to become “one flesh” with his wife, always loving, respecting and praising her. God asked Adam to honor Eve as the weaker vessel.
Adam was responsible to guide his family in God’s ways by leading his family in prayer and worship. He was to be the head of the family, just as Christ is the head of the church.
The Lord demanded him always to work hard and keep a job to benefit his wife and children. If Adam could not provide for his family, he would deny his faith. (1 Timothy 5:8)
God asked Adam to be strong and courageous, as His presence would always be with him.
Adam was to raise wise, disciplined children while showing them compassion. He was to teach them about the Lord and the importance of following His instructions.
If Adam stayed righteous in integrity, God would bless his children. (Proverbs 20:7) It was crucial to be accountable and honorable.
The Bible speaks to all people – whether men or women. However, Galatians 3:28 spoke to me: “There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for you are all one in Christ Jesus.” I hope liberated women will not misinterpret this verse for “man,” alone, was anointed by God with an exceptional title – the Body of Christ. Created in the image of the Lord, the Christian male stands tall and proud, just as Adam, before his family and God. He carries the weight of his loved ones on his shoulders while also following the Lord’s footsteps.
To all fathers, you are so cherished and loved for helping to build the Kingdom of God. It doesn’t matter if you have natural born children or stepchildren; your guidance could ultimately lead a child to the Lord. What fantastic recognition, fathers… you are God’s perfect creation!
Women are God’s glorious creation who fit perfectly into His grand plan. She expands His temple by giving birth and training her family to live adult, productive lives. How incredibly valuable mothers are to the Lord! But this nurturing reality didn’t exist for women in biblical times.
When God created Adam and Eve, he gave them equal reign of the earth. But as the forbidden fruit was eaten, so too, was the woman’s rights to help dominate the land. As the Judaism religion developed, they overplayed this scene – women had no rights. Their primary purpose in life was to give birth, raise children in the Jewish faith, and attend to all the needs within the home and for her husband. She was never to be seen outside socializing with others, nor within the temple walls.
However, under Mosaic Law, Israeli women enjoyed an honorable status, and men recognized their rights. Though husbands were head of the household, the wife could freely express her religion and work a job.
So, who made the world change their view of women? Jesus loved the female genus, and He highly respected them. He healed their ailments, allowed them to travel with Him, and made disciples of a few. To express their importance to Jesus, He even chose a woman to bear witness to his resurrection (Mary Magdalene).
Proverbs 31: 25-30 expresses God’s deep love for mothers:
God also gave guidelines to husbands and children:
“Honor your marriage; keep it pure by remaining true to your wife in every way.” Hebrews 13:4
“Husbands, in the same way be considerate as you live with your wives, and treat them with respect…” 1 Peter 3:7
“My son, keep your father’s commandment, and forsake not your mother’s teaching.” Proverbs 6:20
Mothers mold their offspring with love and integrity. In moments of illness, strife, or despair, their children remain foremost in their thoughts. They adorn their families with our lasting memories. Mothers, the Lord chose YOU to rear His creations and to love them as you love His Word. You are truly a gift.
To all the mothers who grow God’s kingdom, may you have a blessed and Happy Mother’s Day! Know you are so special and loved!

I wake in deep thought… dear God, save me as my life is riddled with missing parts. An eternal flame burns for my father whose life was cut short, fifty-five years ago today, by carelessness. Though I am a product of divorced parents, no one can take the place of your biological Father.
I think of all those special moments in life I wasn’t afforded the luxury of my father. We couldn’t build a model together, fly a kite, or throw a ball. He couldn’t teach me to hunt or fish. He never taught me to drive, yet it I became the chauffeur to his own loving mom and dad. My dad never experienced my graduation day, though I pray he looked down upon me from heaven. He didn’t meet my important first date. Late at night, I cried myself to sleep for the many times I missed his love.
void I tried to fill was grander than a canyon. Nothing can fill the shoes left
behind of my six-foot-two, father. This morning, an eternal flame still burns
inside me, and I memorialize the father, I did without, in my entire life.
God, I know it is He that connects the bridges of all the days of our lives. My
time on earth is limited, too, as I look at my own son and ask God to watch
over him. Someday, maybe, he will understand the meaning of picking up the
phone and giving his dad a ring. Our moments are too short to waste on regrets.
listen to the busy world as it is getting underway, but I feel the warmth from
the Son shining down from heaven. It is God who has saved me in all my lonely days.
Many children grow up in a happy home, and I, too, wish I could claim the same.
sun is now covered by a swirling storm system. Still, an eternal flame for my
father will forever endure whatever weather arrives today. I pray God grants me
the moment I can stand by my Father again someday. I’ll give him a hug, he so
richly deserves, for making me the son I became in his honor.
was once said, “You can’t miss something you never had.” I strongly
disagree! You can’t imagine what it’s like to walk a mile carrying your own
father’s shoes. Yet here I am… throughout my life, without him here, beside me.
“God, my Father, I so pray Your holy hands will guide me all the rest of my weary days alone. Never lead me astray. I pray that not another child will experience the pain I’ve suffered and endured by the loss of my Father. Lord, let me be an example of Your love to other children who has had a parent pass to be with You. Hear my thoughts, on this day of memorial, and tell my father I said hello.”
I love you, Pop. May you rest in peace till the day we will walk in God’s light together.
January 22, 2020, was the 47th anniversary of the infamous United States Supreme Court’s Roe v. Wade decision which granted the federal government’s imprimatur to abortion on demand as a newly ‘created right’ suddenly discovered hidden within the U.S. Constitution.
Since that horrible decision, over 60 million babies have been aborted in America. The devastation extends to the millions of mothers who are damaged physically and emotionally, many of whom die themselves as a result of abortion.
Friday, January 24, 2020, was the annual National March for Life in Washington DC. President Donald J Trump made history at that event by becoming the first president to address the March in person.
The March for Life began in response to the demonic debacle of Roe v Wade one year after the SCOTUS decision. 46 years later, the 45th President of the United States cements himself firmly as the most pro-life president since one became needed in January of 1973.
It All Began with “Penumbras” and “Emanations”
Roe v Wade began in Texas when a woman under the pseudonym ‘Jane Roe’ brought suit against Dallas County District Attorney Henry Wade challenging legal restrictions on abortion as a violation of her constitutional rights. The final decision in favor of Roe was by a 7 to 2 vote of the U.S. Supreme Court.
The decision itself was based in a right to ‘privacy’ which was magically discovered in the U.S. Constitution after almost 200 years of looking for it to appear. In a previous case, Griswold v Connecticut the precedent of the privacy ‘right’ was established in 1965.
The legal precedent for the decision was rooted in the 1965 case of Griswold v. Connecticut, which established the right to privacy involving medical procedures.
The justification for the Griswold decision, which created a new ‘right’ for artificial contraception [read, birth control pills] was also used in deciding Roe. One must bear in mind that the Supreme Court at that time was dominated by ‘progressive’ justices who favored treating the Constitution as something ‘living’ which must change to suit the times, rather than a constitutional originalist who believes the court should make judgments based on the actual text of the Constitution.
The whole thing was based on the “right to privacy,” which is not spelled out in the Constitution. Instead, it comes from Griswold v. Connecticut (1965), which stated: “…specific guarantees in the Bill of Rights have penumbras, formed by emanations from those guarantees that help give them life and substance. …
Examine for a moment the definitions of these two critical words, “penumbras” and “emanations.” “Penumbra” is first defined by dictionary.com as a term used in Astronomy.
“the partial or imperfect shadow outside the complete shadow of an opaque body, as a planet” or “the grayish marginal portion of a sunspot.”
A second common meaning for penumbra is also provided on the site.
a shadowy, indefinite, or marginal area.
The word “emanation” is defined as something that “emanates,” so to understand the term we must look at the word “emanate.” “Emanate” is a verb which means;
to flow out, issue, or proceed, as from a source or origin; come forth; originate.
What the SCOTUS claimed in the Roe decision was that some shadowy or indefinite area somehow arises from the text of the Ninth and Fourteenth Amendments that automatically grants a previously unknown human ‘right’ to end the life of a newly formed human being while still in the womb of the mother. In fact, some political leaders have suggested this killing time extend to after the child is out of the womb, as Virginia governor Ralph Northam did last year.
What the SCOTUS actually did with this terrible decision was to judicially amend or change the Constitution, which is on its face an unconstitutional act! The sole method for changing the Constitution is provided in the document itself through the passing of Amendments by very specific means that do not include changes by the courts.
And they did this on the basis of an indefinite and shadowy message invisibly rising from the Constitution? That is some seriously horrible judgment from the highest “Justices” in the land in 1973.
Roe v Wade is Horribly Bad ‘Law’
I am far from a legal expert, as I have stated on many occasions. However, I am also not alone in my opinion of Roe among some others who are exceptional legal experts, including other Supreme Court Justices.
Among the legal scholars who have roundly criticized the Court’s ruling in Roe as not being grounded in the U.S. Constitution are the following:
Six justices of the U.S. Supreme Court, unfortunately not simultaneously seated – White, Rehnquist, Scalia, Thomas, Kennedy3 and O’Connor4;
Virtually every recognized constitutional scholar who has published a book or article on Roe – including many, like Harvard’s Laurence Tribe, who support Roe’s outcome on other grounds (although he’s switched grounds over the years).5 Yale Law School professor John Hart Ely spoke for many when he stated: Roe v. Wade “is bad because it is bad constitutional law, or rather because it is not constitutional law and gives almost no sense of an obligation to try to be”;6
Perhaps the most forceful and persuasive legal objections to the Roe decision came from an interesting, and somewhat conflicted source, a man named Edward Lazarus. He was the law clerk for Justice Harry Blackmun who wrote the decision. He states,
What, exactly, is the problem with Roe? The problem, I believe, is that it has little connection to the Constitutional right it purportedly interpreted. A constitutional right to privacy broad enough to include abortion has no meaningful foundation in constitutional text, history, or precedent. …The proof of Roe’s failings comes not from the writings of those unsympathetic to women’s rights, but from the decision itself and the friends who have tried to sustain it. Justice Blackmun’s opinion provides essentially no reasoning in support of its holding. And in the almost 30 years since Roe’s announcement, no one has produced a convincing defense of Roe on its own terms.7
When your own law clerk, who admits he thought of Blackmun as “a grandfather,” says stridently and clearly that the triumph of your career was a legal fantasy, it is indeed a savage critique. However, it gets even worse when the fact that Roe was based on a series of lies is considered.
The case was put forth as a lie from the very start, which facilitated other lies in order for Roe to be compelling enough to succeed.
The main lie was that an abortion was needed for Roe (whom we later learned was Norma McCorvey) because she was supposedly gang-raped. But that was not true. McCorvey just wanted an abortion, and her attorney falsely promised to help her get one, knowing full well it could not happen in time (since cases that go up to the Supreme Court take time to adjudicate). Another lie was the number of women who supposedly died in America because of illegal abortions. Abortionist Bernard Nathanson told the media that each year about 10,000 women died from illegal abortions. He later admitted that he made the number up from thin air, but a willing media reported it as if it were gospel truth. In 1972, the last year before Roe, the CDC reports that 39 women died from illegal abortions in America. That may be 39 too many, but it’s a far cry from 10,000. Thankfully, both McCorvey and Nathanson became pro-life Christians and came to strongly oppose abortion.
The trouble with such unprecedented tampering with the Constitution motivated by ideology and empowered by lies is the fact that the consequences in society are bound to render unprecedented destruction as well. Roe v Wade has reeked monumentally unprecedented and staggering societal damage in America and beyond since its inception.
The Staggering Societal Devastation of Roe v Wade
The first and most obvious devastation as a result of Roe is evidenced by the enormous body count left in its wake. Over 60 million human beings have been slaughtered in America’s abortion mills in 47 years.
The total deaths resulting from Roe dwarf all the deaths of Americans in every war in our history, which amounts to just over 1.3 million who have lost their lives in our nation’s wars and military conflicts. However, this story goes beyond the body count of babies destroyed as a consequence of Roe.
The fact is that Roe did not legalize abortion without restriction past the first three months of pregnancy. States were allowed to place some restrictions on abortion after that first trimester period.
The restrictions were allowed in cases of ‘extreme’ circumstances, such as a pregnancy resulting from rape or incest or that continuing the pregnancy would pose a threat to the life or health of the mother. These were impotent to stop the flood of abortions which came about in the wake of the SCOTUS decision principally because of the open-ended interpretation of what constituted a threat to the life or health of the mother.
There are not one but two victims of the legalized abortion Roe provides. The second victim is the mother who is most often coerced into their abortions by those closest to her, such as boyfriends, parents and even clergy in some cases.
Moreover, there are some horror stories told by women who were physically forced into an abortion after expressing doubts about going through with the procedure.
Muriel Ramos moved in 1980 to Florida, where she met her future fiancé. When they moved in together, she became pregnant even though she was on the pill. When she went back to the clinic that gave her the pill, employees told her “Oh, you need to have an abortion because your baby’s going to be deformed, you were taking the pill.” Both she and her fiancé were scared, she remembered, and he “dropped me off one day to have the abortion.” She went into the waiting room and recalled the other women who tried to reassure her. “One said to me, ‘Oh, don’t worry, this is my second time. Don’t be afraid.’ Another said, ‘It’s my third time,’” she said. “All of a sudden it hit me what I was doing, and I went to the receptionist and asked to use the phone” to call her fiancé to go home. When she revealed she had changed her mind, the receptionist “got mad,” moved her into another room, and advised that “everybody has their doubts.” After Ramos protested again, a woman put an IV in her arm and the doctor entered the room. “By this time I was crying,” she remembered, but still the “doctor ignored my pleas” and instead “nodded to the lady that had put the IV in, like, ‘up it.’” “The next thing I knew, it was over and I had woken up,” she said. Afterwards, that same lady appeared saying, “It’s time for juice and cookies. Now you can get on with your life.” Ramos said she got an infection from the abortion and suffered from an autoimmune disease as well as fertility problems. She also had five miscarriages.
The evil results of Roe run deeper than even these kinds of stories, of which there are thousands of examples that represent a far larger amount of women devastated by abortion. There are many stunning examples of demonic depravity afoot within the world of legalized abortion in America demonstrated by people such as Kermit Gosnell,
Perhaps most revealing about the real attitude of the Left concerning women’s health is this description of Gosnell’s abortion clinic when it was raided in 2010,
“Instruments were not sterile. Equipment was outdated and rusty. Women recovering from their abortions sat on dirty recliners covered with blood-stained blankets that employees said they “tried” to have cleaned weekly.”
Gosnell was a sick abortion “doctor” responsible for thousands of babies’ deaths and the deaths of many mothers as well. He was eventually convicted on three counts of murder for killing babies,
who authorities say were delivered alive and then killed with scissors at his grimy clinic,
Gosnell was sentenced to two life terms in 2013 and only avoided the death penalty by agreeing to not appeal his conviction. Roe is the principal enabler of monsters like Gosnell, and those like him who operate with almost virtual impunity because of the pro-choice evils legitimized by Roe.
However, the worst consequence of the Roe v Wade decision is the empowering of Planned Parenthood in America and around the globe. The power and influence of this malevolent organization cannot be overstated, nor can its destructive results be truly calculated.
Planned Parenthood has a far longer and more sinister history than Roe, as this journal has chronicled in greater detail in previous articles, and that will not be repeated here. However, it is no stretch to state that Roe empowered Planned Parenthood as nothing else ever has and the outreach of this death-dealing organization was only expanded to a global arena after Roe.
Thus a decision of the United States Supreme Court has facilitated the exportation of abortion to most of the rest of the world! The abortion body count worldwide is staggering.
According to the website numberofabortions.com, since 1980, 7 years after Roe, worldwide is over 1.5 billion souls! This number is larger than all deaths by war, famine, and disease in recorded history!
Roe v Wade Has Damaged the Soul of America
The manifested evils of this SCOTUS decision are more than apparent now and have been so since this travesty of Roe v Wade began. However, the most damaging aspect of Roe has been the harm inflicted upon the soul of the nation.
It is the quality of a human soul to value human life, their own and others, and it is a quality I believe that each person has from the moment any conscious thought comes into the human psyche. That is what inspired Thomas Jefferson to pen the words in the Declaration of Independence,
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal and are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness
The affirmation of a fantasy ‘right’ in Roe pulls against what is self-evident in the very soul of each human being. It is such an egregious violation of what we all know that our ordinary speech to one another refutes the conclusion of Roe and every ‘pro-choice’ advocate alive.
Test this for yourself the next time you have an opportunity to speak to a woman who is pregnant. No one I know of will ask that woman when her fetus is due because we instinctively know a human child is present in the mother’s womb.
Yet the pro-choice crowd will either deny the humanity of that unborn child, or they will assign the child to a lesser category of humanity in order to justify killing him or her in an abortion. That can only be done when the value of human life has been judged to be assigned according to the whims of godless people who deny the Creator and the inestimable value He has vested in each human life, so much so that His own Son suffered and died a horrific death on our behalf.
It is long past time for Roe v Wade to be consigned to the ash heap among the worst ideas ever to become ‘law’ anywhere in the world. May God grant the removal of this stain upon history sooner rather than later or we may pay an enormous price for the blood which has been spilled.
Their feet run to evil, and they are swift to shed innocent blood; their thoughts are thoughts of iniquity; desolation and destruction are in their highways. Isaiah 59:7 [ESV]

society is bombarded with many slogans that portray us to be “deserving” of
something. Such self-focused messages are:
“You deserve a break today…” used by
“You owe it to yourself…” used by
“Treat yourself to take the break
you deserve” used by Hilton HHonors
the dynamics of families and relationships, how many times have you graciously
gave a gift and never received a “thank you” of any kind? How often have you
heard the stories of parents passing away, and the children fought over the
estate and money? If a sibling or parent is near their deathbed, do they
deserve to be treated with respect if they never reciprocated love to family
members in a state of healthiness? What if a husband and wife purchase a home
with their hard-earned money – should their children feel entitled to the
the business world, employees arrive late and perform their duties with little
ambition. They demand pay raises and better benefits. Are they really deserving
of it? Or, a parent scrapes and works hard to grow a business, and their grown
children now believe they’re entitled to run it when the parent is deceased.
also run into the same dilemmas when the congregation feels entitled to receive
answers from their pastors or to hold positions within the house of worship.
And, while I walk down the path of religious connotations, many believers feel
deserving of God’s blessings. Speaking of this, do you know why much of
humanity walks away from God and stops believing in Him? They prayed for an
answer they wanted to hear and didn’t receive it. He was a means to get what
they felt entitled to in life! Ironically, I believe our church leaders are
responsible for this incorrect train of thought. They stand on the pulpit and
preach God will meet all our needs and give them their desires if they pledge
their soul to Jesus. The fact is our sin separates us from the Lord.
Entitlement is a dangerous walk in life – it’s Godlessness. Let me be frank here – God, parents, and employers owe us nothing. God blesses us with things because He wants to – an unconditional love of grace. A selfish demand for His generosity will reap no benefits. It’s that simple!
ministry spoke of loving others with a grateful heart. This includes treating
each other with respect, even amidst our differences. The well-being of
gratitude promotes healthy relationships, both in our walk with the Lord and
relationships with others.
the subject of parenting, fewer children today respect their elders. They
ignore the recognition parents deserve for years of hard work and dedication to
their families because they live in the “gimme, gimme” world. These generations
are gifted with their heart’s desires, and they expect it from the parents.
Thus, the slogans I mentioned at the beginning of the message above, come into
play. As the children grow older, they feel entitled to life. Little do we
know, it promotes laziness, ungratefulness, and the subject of this blog –
entitlement. What are we teaching our children and others?
how can we live a life feeling less entitled to things and people?
• Humbly give thanks to God for all we receive. “Give
thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for
you.” 1 Thessalonians 5:18
• Remember the grace of God, for Jesus died on the cross for
our sins. We do not deserve to be treated with graciousness for our sinful
attitudes, but the Lord’s love and grace reaches out to us, anyway. “At one
time we too were foolish, disobedient, deceived and enslaved by all kinds of
passions and pleasures. We lived in malice and envy, being hated and hating one
another. But when the kindness and love of God our Savior appeared, he saved
us, not because of righteous things we had done, but because of his mercy.”
• Set your mind on eternity with the Lord and not on this
world. Money and physical possessions mean nothing, for they cannot be taken
with you to heaven. “But, as it is written, what no eye has seen, nor ear
heard, nor the heart of man imagined, what God has prepared for those who love
him…” 1 Corinthians 2:9
• Continuously pray for discernment of entitlement. Why do I
feel entitled, and how can I change this train of thought?
In summary of today’s message, expect little, receive with a grateful heart, and always give thanks. Give God the glory for your unexpected blessings!

The recent case of one James Younger has once again brought critical attention to the so-called ‘transgender rights’ movement madness which has gripped society with astonishing speed. Perhaps some of you haven’t heard about James, a 7-year-old boy embroiled existentially against his will in a divorce settlement with some very unusual details.
This case takes place in Dallas, Texas with James’ biological father, Jeffrey Younger who is trying to keep his soon-to-be ex-wife from forcing young James to “transition” to becoming a “girl.” In a Dallas family court, it was ruled by a jury on October 21, 2019, that sole custody of James should go to the wife, Dr. Anne Georgulas, which would make her the sole authority over medical decisions for her son.
The following video gives the father’s reaction to that jury verdict.
Fortunately, the judge in the case, Kim Cooks ruled on October 24, that both parents would have joint custody including both having a say in medical decisions. However, there were some other ‘requirements’ of the jury decision placed upon Mr. Younger and it is unclear whether any or all of these have been removed.
Court Mandated Madness
The reason some other legal restrictions may or may not remain in place against Mr. Younger is that Judge Cooks also placed a gag order on all the parties involved so that no information is disclosed to the press until after the proceedings have concluded. However, there are some details of the original jury decision from October 21 which are known.
Buck Sexton, who read the original court order, said during his podcast of October 22, 2019,
The court has enjoined this father, Jeffery Younger, that he is not allowed to dress his son in boys’ clothing… that he’s not allowed to try and convince his son that he is, in fact, a boy and will be a normal boy… not allowed to have the son around anybody…friend or family member who might [do the same]. [He also] has to use female or gender-neutral pronouns in public [and] is not allowed to call him James, he has to call him ‘Luna.’
“Luna” is the name James’ mother branded him as when she decided that James was indeed a ‘transgender’ person years ago. Dr. Georgulas made this life-changing decision based on a then 3-year-old infatuation with a female Disney character.
The process of ‘transitioning’ would begin with James receiving puberty-blocking drugs as early as 10 years old. These would be followed by administering cross-sex hormones, testosterone for women and estrogen for men.
Little is known about the effects of such a regimen on children. What is known is not good news for the child.
This is far from benign, since taking puberty blockers at age 12 or younger, followed by cross- sex hormones, sterilizes a child.
What studies there are have necessarily focused on the side effects of cross-sex hormones on adults who have ‘transitioned.’ Children’s bodies are less stable than adults, and these and other harmful effects are likely to be magnified greatly with the application of such ‘treatments.’
From studies of adults we know that the risks of cross-sex hormones include, but are not limited to, cardiac disease, high blood pressure, blood clots, strokes, diabetes, and cancers.
Once the hormone therapies have been applied the next step is surgery. Girls who persist in insisting they are really boys would undergo a double-mastectomy as early as 16 years of age, followed later by altering their female “bottom parts” to appear as male parts.
Boys would wait a year or two longer, by current practices, before having their genitals sliced off and beginning the process of altering the appearance of that area to resemble female genitalia.
These new physical accouterments will not function as they would if that person was naturally male or female. In other words, men ‘transitioning to women’ do not menstruate, even after surgery, regardless of the political correctness of a particular sanitary napkin retailer, or social media outlets’ insistence otherwise.
This is what the child of seven, James Younger, still may have to look forward to in the near future. His hormone ‘treatments’ aren’t supposed to start until he’s about 10, and who knows what may happen in the courts before then.
The Younger case is but one of a multitude of attacks against biological reality by advocates of a fantasy world where delusional nightmares are promoted as normal expressions of family life. Moreover, James Younger is not the only or even the youngest victim of disturbed adults who seemingly look forward to poisoning and mutilating their toddlers and teens.
Dr. Michelle Cretella, executive director of the American College of Pediatricians. …“…first began hearing from distraught parents in this situation in 2016 and in 2017, I heard from seven families in as many different states in this situation. In all but one case the child was a 15 year-old girl who never had any sexual identity confusion prior to her parent’s divorce,” Cretella said. “The other case involved 4-year-old triplet boys whose mother desperately wanted a girl. The mother was a psychologist herself and had cross-dressed one of the boys for two years, insisting that it was his idea. In each of the seven cases the guardian ad litems and judges removed the right to medical consent and/or custody from the parent who objected to transition with puberty blockers and hormones.”
Child Sacrifice to Satisfy Insanity
There is a very disturbing factor lurking within this increasing trend to subject very young children to a tortuous ‘transitioning’ process. It is the strong tendency, if not 100% fact, that whenever these incidents of pushing the youngsters into transgenderism and likely physical harm, we also see that one or both of the parents are either ‘trans’ themselves or ‘trans-rights’ activists.
These ‘parents’ have the right to their own notions of how they act out their bogus assertions of gender for themselves. They are adults living in a mostly free society, and in America, everyone has the right to their own opinion.
However, that right also comes with a bucketload of responsibilities crucial for any free society to exist. Prime among them is the obligation any person has to consider whether or not their exercise of a particular right can damage another person’s individual rights.
It is obvious that the parents have little regard for the physical and psychological damage they are doing to the child when they advocate ‘transitioning’ to the opposite gender. The immediate question is “Why?”
There are three basic answers to that question. One: They don’t know or understand the dangers of ‘transitioning treatment,’ to the child.
That answer would be a bit disingenuous since the methods of such treatment are well-known in the ‘trans rights’ community. Two: The parents are deluded into denial of these hazards and believe they are helping the child.
This response indicates that the parent(s) are mentally disturbed themselves, and unfit to make such serious decisions for their child. Three: They are aware of the dangers yet insist on putting their child at risk believing the ‘benefits’ for the child are worth it.
That possibility is perhaps the most disturbing of all because, in reality, the mental health benefits are basically zero, and the physical damage is truly incalculable. It indicates a personality so desperate for self-affirmation that it demands the child be not simply in agreement with their ‘gender identity’ parent(s), but the child must be biologically transformed to the same physical state as the disturbed adults around him or her.
The child’s health is every area is thus sacrificed for the uses of the ones who should be their protectors. Thus the little boy or girl has their childhood and future destroyed on the altar of transgenderism.
The fruits of this evil insanity are also manifested beyond the individual sacrifice of children. In part two of this series the impact on wider society with the rapid growth of the ‘trans rights’ movement in recent years.
As Jesus Himself notes,
But from the beginning of creation ‘God made them male and female’ Mark 10:6 ESV
That is the only ordering of creation that is right and proper and blessed by God. America, yea even the world, attempts to change that fact at our own peril.
