"The Queer Rebellion Against Reality"

Calling attention to the misguided attempt to create a false reality through legislation (whether by redefining what is marriage, what is the family, and even who is or is not human) is one of our recurring tasks at "A Shepherd's Voice." Of course are not alone in this. On July 20, Crisis magazine published an article by Dale Leary called The Queer Rebellion Against Reality. An excerpt:

"Sex difference is part of the goodness of creation.

In the beginning…God created man in his own image…male and female he created them… and God saw all that he had made and it was very good.”

No one can change their sex. It is written on the DNA. Each man should praise and thank God for his manhood, each woman for her womanhood. Persons who self-identify as Transgendered or Queer are not thankful. They believe that God made a mistake. Of course, they may not say that outright, instead the transgendered talk about how people were ‘assigned’ a sex at birth as though this was an arbitrary and oppressive act by the doctor rather than a simple observation of reality. They complain that they were not given a choice in matter. Some insist that they are really women trapped in men’s bodies, or men trapped in women’s bodies. The Queer view a world divided into male and female as an abridgement of their freedom to choose — or not choose – which ‘gender’ they want to be.

Rather than praising God for the gift of their sexual identity – for He surely knew what he was doing when he willed each one of us into being – they give in to envy. They covet the attributes and privileges of the other sex. They rebel against reality."
