Shaking their fists at God

As we head into Easter week, celebrating the resurrection of our Savior, it is telling that the Transgender Day of Visibility falls on Easter Day this year 🙄.

This was a perfect highlight to a week full of what I can only describe as a shaking of fists at God.

It started with the committee hearing for HB 275, to add “Asexual” and “Pansexual” as protected sexual identities in Delaware. I’m not kidding. 

Back in 2013, when Delaware first passed the SOGI (sexual orientation and gender identity) law, we predicted this would come. We asked then, “where’s the line drawn once sexual orientation receive special protection?”

That question caused anger then, and we felt that ire again when Nandi stated in the HB 275 committee hearing that discussions about MAPS (minor attracted persons) as a sexual orientation are already in mainstream dialogue.

HB 275 quickly moved to the House Floor, and was passed yesterday (March 28) straight down party lines – the Rs voted no and the Ds voted yes. Now it moves to the Senate.

FACT: The Democrat party successfully opened the door as wide as possible for the next depraved sexual variation to be introduced in the future.

Romans 1:21-28 comes to mind:

For although they knew God, they did not honor him as God or give thanks to him, but they became futile in their thinking, and their foolish hearts were darkened. Claiming to be wise, they became fools…And since they did not see fit to acknowledge God, God gave them up to a debased mind to do what ought not to be done. 

*** Then came the hearing for HB 346, the gender transition bill.

The fist shaking continued.

HB 346 protects medical providers who offer high risk, experimental medicalization of “trans” children and adults from any liability. Gender transition is gaining international attention as a huge medical scandal. Other countries and 22 US States and counting have banned or restricted it for minors. But HB 346 makes Delaware a sanctuary state for this so-called “gender affirming care.”

This bill was released from committee, and again, the vote was along party lines – D’s voted yes or not voting; R’s voted no.

While legislators are on Easter break, they need to hear from you. HB 346 could come to the House Floor for a vote as soon as the week of April 15th.

Key Points from the House Committee Hearing for 346:

The sponsor repeatedly said this bill is about “protecting the providers” who give “standard care” for gender transition. But there is no standard care – even the “experts” at WPATH admit that it’s all experimental!

Major lawsuits have been filed across the country from individuals who were encouraged towards this medicalization and experimentation with no effort to identify underlying issues. 

It’s worth noting that it was long time LGBTQ activist and lobbyist for Christiana Care and the Christiana Care staff who were coaching the lead sponsor from the sidelines, and who testified in support of HB 346. Do you see who this bill is benefiting?

The bill sponsor said that the “standard of care” is to give mental health evaluations before encouraging the experimental drugs and surgeries. However, as Rep. Mike Smith said, that is not necessarily required.

No amount of evaluation can change the fact that children and vulnerable adults cannot give consent!

Furthermore, the providers, according to Delaware law are not allowed to counsel patients toward accepting their biological gender. This means that the ONLY counsel that an individual will get is in the direction of attempting to change their gender. [Del Code Title 24, 1731(24)]

There’s a reason why the trans movement is being called a social contagion, especially among young girls. The number of children who have attempted to “transition” their gender has tripled in just five years! The underlying trauma and issues are not being identified, addressed, or healed. THAT’s what is driving the suicide rate.

The bill sponsors were quick to note that this bill was “simply an expansion” of the protections that they gave to abortionists two years ago (in the passage of HB455).

That’s exactly why newly elected Rep. Jones Giltner boldly went after the lack of parental consent already established through the abortion legislation.

But when she did, the sponsor said “this bill has nothing to do with parental consent.” Do you see the double speak?

***Thank you to Reps. Jones-Giltner, Postles, Hilovsky, and Smith for asking pointed questions and exposing the major issues with HB 346.

When the bill sponsor tried to divert attention away from the issue of parental rights, she was responding to you. 1125 of you sent comments, and you made it crystal clear that you all knew exactly what they were doing when they so egregiously violated parental rights in the original version of the bill.

Thank you also to those of you who testified against HB 346, and were even prepared when the committee chair cut your time from 2 minutes to 1.

When you advance truth, it cannot be ignored – it must be contended with. Every legislator who supports this bill cannot say that they don’t know what they’re supporting.

The bottom line is this: HB 346 sells out children and vulnerable adults to secure the interests of activist medical staff and a $4 billion pharmaceutical industry.

Where does this madness come from?

It’s all from a rebellion against  God as the Creator, and a desire to break away from the truth that He established in His Word. It’s utter folly!

Why do the nations conspire and the peoples plot in vain? The kings of the earth rise up and the rulers band together against the LORD and against his anointed, saying, “Let us break their chains and throw off their shackles.” The One enthroned in heaven laughs; the Lord scoffs at them. Psalm 2:1-3

This is why Jesus came to earth – to rescue us from this rebellion and the destruction that it brings.

This is what Easter is all about – to celebrate the fact that the Creator of the Universe became man, and gave Himself for the atonement of all sin and defeated death in His resurrection so that we can access to Him, the one Holy God of the Universe, for eternity. 

Remembering and Rejoicing in the Resurrection of Jesus,
