What Could Be More Rebellious Than to Speak Against God by Declaring to Him, ‘You Have No Say Over My Gender!’
CHARLOTTE, N.C.—Activists are challenging a recently passed bill in North Carolina that would require transgender people to use restrooms assigned to the sex on their birth certificate.
According to the Washington Post, the American Civil Liberties Union, Lambda Legal and Equality North Carolina are suing the state over the ordinance that overrides a Charlotte non-discrimination measure that aimed to “grant protections for LGBT residents, including the ability to use the restroom that corresponds to their gender identity.”
Dr. Alex McFarland (www.alexmcfarland.com), author and religion and culture expert, says transgender issues are certainly tied to biblical truth, and the blurring of gender lines is the ultimate form of moral relativism.
“The fight against gender is a fight against natural law, and a fight against natural law is a fight against God,” McFarland said. “What could be more rebellious than to speak against God by declaring to Him, ‘You have no say over my gender! The Creator doesn’t decide my identity, I do!’ We are designed by God, and part of that design is, inherently, our gender. It’s one thing to disobey God in our behavior, but to deny God in how He created us is another thing altogether.
“Essentially, the transgender community is saying that God has no claim over them, not even their gender,” McFarland continued. “The blurring of these lines has gone so far that truth has been pushed aside—even the biological truth of the gender with which we were born.”
