American Family Association, an anti-LGBTQ hate group, is selling DVDs. The email hawking their fare is titled: How Do You Address This Controversial Topic?. These DVDs are intended to misinform parents about human sexuality so that they can misinform their children and possibly make them — and their classmates — miserable in the process. Who could possibly resist?
The first of these is titled: Preparing Your Children for the Transgender Revolution. The description reads:
In this AFA Cultural Institute DVD, Christian author and apologist Tom Gilson explains what parents need to know and what children need to hear about the transgender revolution. The one-hour presentation equips parents with the knowledge they need to confidently address the issue with grace and truth.
What are the odds that AFA’s idea of truth is at odds with medical science?
The second DVD is: A Christian Parents’ Guide to Discussing Homosexuality with Teens. I am certain that this advice will make their kids popular in school.
This is perhaps the most complicated and contentious issue Christians face in today’s culture. Most churches are poorly equipped to handle it; parents are even less prepared. The good news is that parents need not have pat answers ready before they dive into conversations with their teens and preteens on this difficult topic. Gilson helps parents by providing biblical answers to common questions.
AFA and other hate groups are responsible for making sexual orientation a “difficult topic.” Tom Gilson, by the way, is a new found Einstein. From his latest blog post:
In a recent article on The Stream that’s proved controversial among some Christians on Facebook, I argued that gay activists who adhere to materialistic atheism cannot claim that homosexuality is really good. Part of the controversy I’ve faced has to do with the evolutionary argument I summarized there, suggesting that moral realism is impossible on materialistic atheism. At least one person on Facebook has called it a weak argument few philosophers would endorse.
There are several logical fallacies in the above which include begging the question. No gay activist claims that any sexual orientation is good or bad any more than to suggest that a specific hair color or eye shade is inherently good or bad. These are all natural variances. Moreover, the science of human sexuality is not influenced (or should not be influenced) by the religious beliefs or atheism of the consumer of that science.
Gilson’s offering is quite verbose. Each ensuing sentence compounds the stupidity of its preceding content. It is a geometric progression of inanity which Gilson attempts to hide with stilted language. Some of the verbiage does not even make sense.
I suppose that I could buy these two DVDs. They are $6.99 and $15.99 respectively. The thought of sitting through two hours of Gilson prevents me from doing so.
