Sorry, Mr. Pitts, but Liberalism is Beyond “Silly”
Trevor Grant Thomas.com ^ | 7/13/2017 | Trevor Grant Thomas

Well, well, it seems the “T” in LGBT has finally produced a line that even committed liberals are unwilling—or at least, not yet willing—to cross. For liberal columnist Leonard Pitts, a “genderless” child is the “proverbial bridge too far.” Of course, given the sad, sick, rotten fruit of modern liberalism, Mr. Pitts’ conclusion on genderless children raises the question: Why would any devoted liberal of the 21st century be taken aback by an “enlightened” parent who refuses to recognize the clear gender of his or her newborn child?

Touting his rock-solid liberal credentials, in his recent piece, Mr. Pitts points out,

"I have, after all, long taken great pride in supporting LGBTQ freedom. Marriage equality, adoption rights, job protections, I have demanded them. Restroom ID laws, “don’t ask, don’t tell” and so-called “religious freedom” measures, I have fought them."

If modern liberalism “demands” that we dehumanize the unborn and ignore the clear science and morality of life in the womb; if it can procure from U.S. courts a legal redefinition of the oldest institution in the history of humanity; if it has concluded that elementary, middle, and high school students in America have the “right” to use whatever bathroom or locker room they so desire;... if it has decided that men can have babies (Is there a better headline to reveal the corruption of modern liberalism than, “British Man, 21, Makes History by Giving Birth…”?); if it has resolved that a black business owner doesn’t have to serve a “plantation wedding,” but a Christian business owner must serve a same-sex “wedding,” why would any modern liberal be surprised that those under the influence of liberalism would reject one of the tenets of basic biology?

First of all, quit calling Leftism “liberalism”. Liberal, which has to do with freedom, has nothing to do with the fascist Left.

Secondly, the Left is silly, stupid, deranged, and irrational, but more importantly it is DANGEROUS and DEADLY.

Yeah. Won’t be surprised to see those like Pitts capitulate to this madness as well.

Well, whatever their label, I completely agree with your second point.

Liberals want to have children that are genderless but sexualized.

Un-bloody-real.

We are living in Bizzaro World.

It’s the Cleveland Clinic mental health building in Las Vegas - a postmodernism example of architecture.

Conversations with my wife always ends badly on this topic. I think the LGBT community are deranged freaks, but she thinks that is not a very loving way to regard them. She disputes a couple of my beliefs, which I admit may have come from Christian sources - 1) That homosexuals are not very faithful and are in fact fraternize with multiple partners 2) That they are more likely to be child molesters. I have believed this to be the case for at least a couple decades. Am I wrong?

A mental health building?? Really?

Looks like something you’d see on a bad LSD trip.

Homosexuality is at least a neurosis.

Gender dysphoria is a psychosis, since it features a delusional rejectiion of reality.

This is how the APA catalogued these presentationns before the APA was taken over by the LGBQT junkies.

If you’re a Christian, committing these acts is an abomination, which is a few degrees beyond sin.

Yeah, she and some of her Christian friends are caught in this idea that “all sins are equal.” So if I had sex before marriage that was no worse than practicing homosexuality. More conservative Christians I know reject that idea completely. Definitely a bit of a dividing wedge in Christian thought.

OMG. Really? It seems to be inspired by abnormal mental processes, that's for sure.

Go sleepless for 72 hours and you may be able to provoke hallucinations like that.

Good points.

In a sense, all sins have the same definition: Failure to conform to God’s Will. But some sins have far more damaging effects on individuals and on a society.

This is acknowledged in traditional Judaism with the Seven Laws of the Children of Noah. Murder, idolatry, theft, blasphemy, improper sexuality (including homosexuality), and cruelty to animals are critically damaging to society, not just personal sins. And societies are expected to have fair courts where the prohibitions are enforced.

OK, let’s go along with the premise that stealing a candy bar is the same as a rape and murder.

Now, I know that you don’t ascribe to that, and neither do I.

However, the Bible teaches that, while you can be forgiven for your sins when you repent of them, to continue sinning without sorrow means you have never repented and, therefore, you were never forgiven.

Things like “gay pride” are the very expression of an unrepentant attitude towards sin.

A LGBTQ that forsakes their sin, asks God’s forgiveness, and feels REMORSE if they should ever fall into that sin again, has truly been forgiven.

But those that call themselves “Christian” and continue not only to shamelessly practice this sin, but even boast about it, and express “pride” in it, cannot in that state be forgiven for it. Therefore, the best expression of love for thse people is to WARN them of the dangers of eternity in Hell if they don’t repent.

That sentence applies equally to thieves, adulterers, murderers, liars, and blasphemers.

That’s the New Testament.

Read Romans chapter 1.
