Trans girls cannot catch a break. The Christian Right deems them too masculine to compete in women’s sports (they are not). The same Christians seem to believe that trans girls are too feminine to compete in beauty pageants.
For the latest in pious dysfunction we turn to Pat Robertson’s CBN: Transgender Contestant Defeats 21 Women to Win Miss Nevada USA Pageant. Mazel tov! I suppose that, were I Pat Robertson, I might be jealous (irresistible sexpot that he is):
Time for some of that old time religion:
As CBN News has reported, as popular culture treats transgenderism as the new “in” thing, the Bible clearly teaches there are no other gender categories besides male and female. The first two chapters of Genesis clearly show God’s design for humanity.
Actually, the new “in” thing is attempting to marginalize transgender persons due to superstitions.
And what would be transphobic without the wicked witch herself?
Dr. Michelle Cretella, president of the American College of Pediatricians, says it’s a big problem that the use of the term “gender” has been morphed overtime to invent more than 60 different “genders.”
“Our sex is binary,” Dr. Cretella previously told CBN News. “It’s an objective biological trait, and that’s what we need to get back to. Thoughts and how we perceive ourselves are not hardwired by biology and can be correct and incorrect.”
Thus sayeth the Defender of the Faith™
“As they say: Follow the money.”
Of course some pray-awayers for good measure:
Meanwhile, people who have left LGBT lifestyles say the power of God can help heal sexual identity disorders. …
Can Pat Robertson’s personality disorder be healed? If prayer worked …
“I would never have made it without the ability to go find a counselor that was going to tell me, ‘Hey, Jesus cares about this issue,'” Williams previously told CBN News.
As they say: Follow the money.
