Exchanging the truth of God for a lie.
Here is a portion the letter from the Department of Justice (DOJ) that is being sent to America’s schools, according to the NY Times quote:
“When a school provides sex-segregated activities and facilities, transgender students must be allowed to participate in such activities and access such facilities consistent with their gender identity,” reads the letter, signed by two Obama administration officials responsible for enforcing civil rights laws: Assistant Secretary of Education Catherine E. Lhamon, and Principal Deputy Assistant Attorney General Vanita Gupta.
This is not talking about bathrooms. Airplanes, most homes, many small businesses, and many different cultures have bathrooms that can be used by either gender.
This application and enforcement of the Title IX ruling of the 70’s is arbitrary and based upon a rejection of God’s sovereign rule over our lives. Modesty is now viewed as an attack on transgenders. This interpretation by the current DOJ means that school locker rooms, showers, dressing areas, etc., can be used by anyone based on how they gender identify.
The consequences of this action will be far-reaching and devastating to our culture. Your children are not safe, and according the DOJ, are to be displayed as objects of lust to the morally depraved predators of your community. To the DOJ fig leaves are an indication of ancient, bigoted hatred.
The Bible calls this dishonoring our bodies. The government’s actions are an indication of God’s judgment upon us. May God grant us the courage to be salt and light, to live out his truth and may he bring conviction and repentance to our nation as he did to Nineveh!
24 Therefore God gave them up in the lusts of their hearts to impurity, to the dishonoring of their bodies among themselves, 25 because they exchanged the truth about God for a lie and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever! Amen.
