I have no idea what David Benham’s insane rant even means. The “gender unicorn” conspiracy theory first came to my attention via Franklin Graham’s paranoid nuttiness that we are turning kids gay. The following day, August 7, the Benham Brothers made a similar claim at the very credible and responsible WND. Ultimately Benham does not accept the fact that most people are not in his uber-Christian orbit — at least not those who place a high value on mental hygiene. By now I am certain that he has fucked up his own children.
The radical, anti-values sexual revolution is accelerating at break-neck speed.
Just last week, the Charlotte Mecklenburg School Board acted on Obama’s high-pressured, open bathroom initiative by taking it to a whole “nutha” level.
CMS introduced “The Gender Unicorn.” This little guy is the Charlotte school system’s new teacher’s assistant. He’s going to help our children explore and discover who they “go to bed as,” and who they like to “go to bed with.”
Are you kidding?!
What this is really about is that the good Christians do not want their children to know that transgender people exist; let alone that they deserve respect and equal treatment. So, they flooded the school board meeting, apparently last week.
In any event, the school board keeps telling them that the materials are for teachers and staff and the students are not going to receive instruction about trans people. The fun fundamentalists are not listening.
Here, by the way, is the whacked-out speech that Benham originally prepared to deliver:
My name is David Benham. I’m a concerned father of five children, and as a business owner, I’m an employer to parents of many more kids in and around the Charlotte Metro area.
I came here tonight to plead with you not to use our children—our future—as social experiments. I’m asking you not to let our kids become pawns in the hands of radical, sexual revolutionaries who don’t care about them, you, me or anyone but themselves.
Their main target is to eliminate any and all moral standards. This allows those pushing the agenda to rebuild society in man’s image—not God’s—with government as the ultimate giver (and taker) of our rights.
The apostle Paul talked about this destructive pattern in Romans 1, where he said, “Professing to be wise, they became fools, and exchanged the glory of the incorruptible God for an image in the form of corruptible man and of birds and four-footed animals …”
Needless to say, when I saw the “gender unicorn” for the first time in our teacher’s manual, I was blown away. It was as if this verse of scripture came to life right before my very eyes, but for all the wrong reasons.
At first, those pushing the sexual revolution wanted acceptance. Then they asked for appreciation. Then they demanded celebration. And, today, they seek to force our participation.
By voting to move forward with the new CMS policies—though they are on hold for a time—you have chosen to join this radical revolution, with our children on the front lines. This is simply unacceptable.
After reading several of the new policies I thought to myself …
Should our daughters be forced to sleep in the same room as boys during overnight school activities?
Should parents really be kept out of gender conversations between their children and teachers even though evidence shows up to 80 percent of children lose transgender feelings over time and that gender transitions can result in regret, further confusion and health risks?
While we seek to accommodate those who truly struggle with gender confusion, it’s logically absurd to flip the entire system of standards upside-down.
We don’t allow children to spit on the walls simply because they feel like it. No, we have standards in place for cleanliness. How much more should we have standards in place for safety?
We don’t allow a student to defecate in the trashcan because the stalls make him feel claustrophobic, do we? No, we have standards in place for everyone and make exceptions for the extreme.
What about the girls who simply feel unsafe or uncomfortable sharing the bathroom with boys—do their feelings matter?
Maybe you think we’re being extreme here, but are we? Last year, if we wrote about a horned, Barney-like creature pushing the sexual revolution on our kids, you’d say we were extreme. So we’ve entered new territory as a nation, as unbelievable as it may seem.
The good news is that God says if we know the truth – the truth will make us free.
So here’s the truth we cannot forget: The real issue here is not the emotional struggle of the transgender community, but a political revolution of the radical left.
Ordinarily I comment on these things, section by section. It is pointless because this is Benham’s expression of ignorance and hate based upon his perverted understanding of Christianity which requires him to reference an apostle. It requires no accompanying commentary.
