What’s Wrong with Common Sense?

As we discussed last week, there is a serious lack of knowledge of the duties of the President, the Congress and the Supreme Court. We see this ignorance being played out in this election cycle by comments coming from candidates at all levels – local, state and federal. Presidential candidates sometimes forget they have to work with the Congress to get things done (they are not monarchs). They both forget that states don’t have to acquiesce to every intrusive law or regulation they push on them.

This is also true of those who are forcing their lifestyle choices on the rest of us regardless of the consequences to society. The only thing that counts is their agenda and they care little if the rights of the rights of the majority are trampled upon. Many citizens are now so afraid to speak out and stand up against these bullies that they rationalize that gay marriage won’t hurt society or that gender-less bathrooms won’t hurt anyone. They just want us all to “get along”.

What we fail to realize is that when we allow lifestyles, which for centuries were considered sin, to become mainstream then we have given over access to our children. How is that? Just do an internet search on these topics and children’s books. It will shock you at the volume of books out there for children on gender identity. This is now becoming an integral part of the Comprehensive Sexuality Curriculum (CSC) being pushed on school districts.

Most of us would consider this curriculum to be explicit and inappropriate for children and teens of all ages. But if you think about it this type of educational material is necessary because it is the only way to grow their movement. Pause and think about it. This movement doesn’t procreate so how else can they add to their miniscule numbers?

In fact, I can foresee a day where gender on birth certificates will not be filled out until the child reaches a certain age and can articulate which gender they “feel” they are. Sounds ridiculous doesn’t it. But by opening bathrooms and locker rooms to anyone who “feels at that moment” they are male or female clears the way for a day when children get to pick their gender. Biological facts and truth do not matter. Some parents have even fallen prey to this ideology and have been led to believe the lie so that instead of being the adult they allow a little child to dictate what they want to be.

We all have issues growing up and sometimes gender confusion is a result of some type of trauma that can be resolved with professional help and through prayer. God did not make us male or female by accident. Each of us was uniquely designed by God to fulfill the purpose and destiny He envisioned for us. He is calling us to take a stand in prayer and in action against this evil being perpetrated on our children and grandchildren.

Just recently the state of Oregon has a new policy that takes this to a whole new level of lunacy. Their new regulations go far beyond allowing a few transgender kids to use the opposite sex’s bathrooms. As reported by Breitbart:

“For example, the new regulation endorses the claim that there are many sex-related categories between male and female. The guidance provides a list of 15 “definitions” with which school districts should accept, including “assigned sex,” “cisgender,” “gender binary,” “gender sensitive,” “genderqueer,” and “intersex.”

Those categories must also be included in sex-education courses given to children, say officials. The courses in Oregon school districts must contain “inclusive materials, language, and strategies that recognizes different sexual orientations, gender identities and gender expression,” the new rules say.”

The Bible warns us of a time when good will be called evil and evil will be called good. (Isaiah 5:20) I believe we can all agree that we are living in that time. At this point in time we need to dig deep and apply logic and common sense to these evil attacks on traditional values and morals. Logic tells us, if we let it, that if we say nothing there will be greater restrictions on our freedom of religion and speech. It is time for us to unite and say NO to these foolish and evil policies.

Fortunately, for now anyway, there are parents joining together to fight these bathroom/locker room policies in court. We all need to support North Carolina and the parents in Chicago, those in Fort Worth and all superintendents who are standing up against these damaging and dangerous policies.

The good news is that there is a Great Awakening that is beginning to happen around the country. As the dark gets darker the light gets brighter! Pray for the fire of God’s presence to fall so that the knowledge of God will be restored to the nation. The fear of God is the beginning of wisdom!

Dinner Table Discussion Question: What does it mean to use “common sense” and logic? How can we as a family educate those around us to the logical outcomes of dangerous public policy?
