God made me transgendered
Townhall.com ^ | 5/11/06 | Mike S. Adams

Posted on 05/11/2006 6:20:12 PM PDT by dukeman

Recently, I got the following email from Brian - a Transgendered person (hereafter with a capital “T” to reflect the superior insight of people who have had sex changes) who I assume was once named Brianna:

"The fact that you are in a position to teach young people, yet espouse your bigoted views, shows what an immoral person you are. Jesus says not to judge others, yet you choose to condemn a segment of society, not for their moral value, but instead, out of your dislike for the fact that they are not close enough to your ideology to allow yourself to feel comfortable. Their is no moral issue of someone that needs to pursue a transgendered lifestyle, as it usually is the only means that one afflicted can avoid suicide. Trans people can live as morally as anyone else in society, they have just altered their appearance to feel more comfortable with themselves."

"The fact that you consider yourself to be a religious person is especially disheartening. I was raised with a Christian upbringing, and yet what I see is the religious right doing everything possible to condemn, degrade, and stop anyone that is different from them. This is not what God teaches. "

"I am a transgendered person, not by choice, it is the way God made me. I need to deal with that, and I will. I do not have to deal with intolerance from bigots. I feel sorry for you in your close bigoted world. I think that it is people like you that have made religious ideology the main reason people die in wars all across the world. Your views show yourself as being no better than the terrorists around the world targeting other innocent victims. Congratulations on your Jihad against other creatures of God."

Reading this missive (actually it used to be a missive, now it’s a mister-ive) inspired a few questions for my Transgendered critic. They follow in their natural and surgically unaltered form:

1. Why did you say that “Jesus says not to judge others” just one sentence after calling me an “immoral person”? Is calling someone “immoral” a judgment? Is calling someone “immoral” immoral?

2. Where in the New Testament does Jesus say not to judge others? I thought he warned of the consequences of hypocritical judgment.

3. Doesn’t the New Testament contain more references to hell than the Old Testament? Who keeps making those references?

4. You state that I “choose to condemn a segment of society, not for their moral value, but instead, out of (my) dislike for the fact that they are not close enough to (my) ideology.” Why did you then categorically judge the “religious right” in the next paragraph? Was that what Jesus was talking about when he said “Judge not, lest ye be judged”? Was it merely hypocrisy that he was talking about?

5. When you state that “this is not what God teaches” are you suggesting that there is only one interpretation of the Bible? Are you a fundamentalist? Were you born that way? In other words, did God make you that way?

6. When you state that God made you Transgendered, didn’t you mean to say that God made you a woman? Didn’t you surgically subvert the will of God? God didn’t actually perform the surgery, did he?

7. I have spent a good deal of time in prisons. I once spoke to a pedophile. Did God make him that way? Was acting on his impulse to rape children the will of God?

8. Is criticizing the Transgendered morally equivalent to mass murder?

9. Do you mean to suggest that I am morally unqualified to teach because I believe that the Transgendered are mentally ill? Why can’t you just allow me to make these statements outside the workplace without your moral condemnation? Who was it who said “I do not have to deal with intolerance from bigots”? Wasn’t that you?

10. If you people want to be left alone, why do you keep writing me? And why do you keeping bothering my colleagues and so-called superiors with letters asking for me to be fired?

Sincerely,

Mike S. Adams

Love the way people through that Judge me not part. They don't want to know what the second part of that scripture reads. Seems Mike knows, though! Get'em Mike!

Because for all their preaching of tolerance and telling everyone else to be tolerant towards them, they practice very LITTLE of it towards anyone that disagrees with them. They whine about intolerance yet practice it more fiercely than those they accuse of being intolerant. Their hypocrisy is staggering!

That was the most morally-confused diatribe I've read in a while. Not surprisingly, that line of reasoning is the best the homosexuals/transgendered/pedophiles have.

Actually, God made you a male. A surgeon made you transgendered.

I think that was a female-to-male transgendered. Had an addadictomy, if you will.

Apparently he didn't make you with a penis, Brianna. Maybe he did that for a purpose.

Most libs who profess Christianity are extremely selective when citing scripture to back up their positions. Ironically, that's exactly what they accuse conservative Christians of doing. But my favorite is when biblically illiterate libs try to cite scripture. They are simply way out of their element.

Let's see, on my list of important things to think about and be concerned about,......

1. The extinction of Western civilzation by Islamofascism.

2. The destruction of America by intolerant, self-righteous leftist, politically "correct" fascist politicians, professors, "celebrities" and "pundits".

3. The destruction of American culture by illegal, non assimilating, America hating "immigrants".

192,278,342. The whining "problems" of the "transgendered".

That's how important the "transgendered", their "problems" and "feelin's" are to me.

7. I have spent a good deal of time in prisons. I once spoke to a pedophile. Did God make him that way? Was acting on his impulse to rape children the will of God?

This is what gets me. Did God make pedophiles, mass murders, animal rapists, and every type of perversion under the sun? The biggest travesty was to add "regardless of sexual preference" to our laws. If your "preference" is for the opposite sex, or for children, or for animals, or for killing and eating your victims because that's the only way you get satisfaction, and suggesting that it should be protected, that's total BS!

"Their is no moral issue of someone that needs to pursue a transgendered lifestyle, as it usually is the only means that one afflicted can avoid suicide."

First of all need is not defined as want or desire, so to say they need to pursue that lifestyle is its own special little conundrum.

Second, if the "tranies" want to quit getting judged, they need to quit going out of their way to get judged. The "marriage" issue for example, is defined and traditional...it does not apply to same sex couples. Also the whole "we want kids" thing, well...to conceive a child it requires a man and a women (there life choice has taken the option away from them...nobody else).

The Islamfacistists get it. That is why they cannot allow the Word to be even spoken in their lands. They know they are dead meat when the truth is spoken.

Mike Adams is great because he speaks the plain truth with humor and logic. He never falls into the emotional traps that trip up so many others. That's why the ridiculous arguments of the left never even touch him.

God made me tansgendered

God made me with an attaction to women. I guess that means I should have sex with as many as possible?

Surely He wouldn't have wanted me to learn restraint and settle down with just one.

"I am a transgendered person, not by choice, it is the way God made me."


As Mr. Adman said, No he did not. Your mental disorder did, and those are not of Gods making. Furthermore, you DID circumvent what God made, ........you........as a woman. In essence you told God that HE made a mistake, that what He made was not good enough for you, that He is wrong.

Since this person brought God into the discussion, and apparently keeps doing so, he/she deserves to be corrected. And why is it these degenerates can quote God and the Bible, (wrongly so, but none the less) and not get fired for emailing religious messages to people?

"But my favorite is when biblically illiterate libs try to cite scripture. They are simply way out of their element."

Hmm...a certain former first lady's view on illegal immigration comes to mind...

If this a hint at the future behavior of democRATs, I can see the future of liberalism now...

Ted Kennedy: "Jesus...uh... had wine at the...uh... last supper, so God wants us to be...uh... able to drink and drive."

Hillary Clinton: "I was named after God...whose real name is Hillary."

Bill Clinton: "When Jesus said 'Let he without sin cast the first stone' referring to an adulteress...he was saying adultery is okay...well, that depends on what the meaning of 'was' is..."

John Kerry: "I was a war hero in the Crusades..."

Hillary Clinton: "Jesus brought Lazarus back to life...so it must be okay to kill babies..."

George Soros: "What? "'Camel through the eye of a needle'? Somebody find a big needle and a small camel!"

Why do they do this?

They could just make up their own religion, or they could decide to be atheists and simply cease to care about Christianity or any other religion whilst they went about their business - it isn't as though Torquemada's around anymore to jam a red hot poker up their ass to teach them the errors of their ways. So why do they expend such energy to try and argue from WITHIN Christianity?

God made Charlie Manson a nutcase too. But both of these lost souls could have been cured through the power of faith. Instead, they both chose to indulge their pathologies, to resign themselves to torment and abandon hope. And to soothe their tattered consciences, they try to place the blame on others.
