Where do we find the roots of the history of the Pride and transgender movement? Much of it comes from the now-discredited but horrific transgender sex experiments of Dr. John Money, of Johns Hopkins University, on the injured infant male twin, David (originally Bruce) Reimer, whom he tried to forcefully transition to a female first through surgical reconstruction and then through psychological and sexual counseling in addition to the galvanizing force for LGBT political activism created through the 1969 Stonewall Bathhouse Riot against police authority in New York City which the Obama administration turned into a National Historic Landmark in 2016, likening it to the protests of Seneca Falls and Selma.
Pride used to be one of the seven deadly sins now it’s the primary virtue of the American way of life. Where does it come from? Our old adversary: Satan. He was the highest Cherub in Heaven with God who lost his place due to pride.
God cast Satan out of heaven to Earth and replaced his worship with dust. That dust is us. God breathed into that dust the breath of life and created man– a living being to replace Satan’s role as a worshiper of God. Yet, we listened to Satan in the Garden and followed his rebellion against God.
From that time forward, mankind has lived turned in on itself. This situation plays itself out through any number of sins, but it is particularly witnessed in pride. What is pride? Exalting self above all others. It’s in the celebration of Pride Month and the exultation of homosexuality. Instead of celebrating in the other sex, we are celebrating our own sex. Instead of celebrating the difference between male and female, we are eliminating them because we want to make Creation into what we want it to be. It’s an attack on God. And now we have the idea of trans-racialism.
When will the madness stop? It probably won’t. We are under the demonic culture of this world. That is why we must turn to Jesus. He will bring you back no matter how far you have strayed. The message of the Church is the same as it is for every sinner: you can turn out of the darkness and into the light. All that matters is that you come back to God.
And you must show mercy to those whose faith is wavering. Rescue others by snatching them from the flames of judgment. Show mercy to still others, but do so with great caution, hating the sins that contaminate their lives. ~Jude 22-23
Sinners are lost, confused and walking in darkness. But Jesus is seeking to redeem them and bring them into the LIGHT.
