"California teen named nation's first transgender homecoming queen"

Tommy Hunter posted this on Facebook group Christ in Prophecy. I am re-posting it here because I agree with every word. See the news item this gentleman was talking about that prompted his comment below:

"Does anyone else feel like you've been awakened in the Twilight Zone?!?!? I know I do!!! I'm blown away how people have thrown rational thinking out the window to embrace the vilest lifestyles as normal under the banner of "acceptance"!!!! This is just another fulfillment of Romans chapter 1!!!! The selective judgments that have occurred throughout America will soon become national judgments."

And the news item:

"In what is being described as the first known event of its kind, a transgendered teen was named as her high school’s homecoming queen on Friday. “I am so proud to win this not just for me, but everyone out there,” 16-year-old Cassidy Campbell said after receiving her crown during the halftime of Marina High’s homecoming football game Friday night in Huntington Beach, CA. The Los Angeles Times published a slideshow of photos from the homecoming event, which you can view here. Cassidy rose to national prominence when it was reported that she was entering the contest. “Just to be true to themselves and to let people know around them and to not keep it bottled up inside,” Campbell said about what her win should mean for fellow members of the transgendered community."

KTLA reports that "Cassidy Lynn Campbell was born Lance Campbell, but has been living as a woman for the past three years." So if he is 16 years old now and has been living as a girl for the last three, that makes him changing to a female at age thirteen.

When the article says the transgender 'community' let's put that into perspective. Unlike the mirrors on the sides of cars that say "objects may be larger than they appear" transgenderism is smaller that it appears. Though the homosexual lobby likes to put forth that the gay population is huge, it is not.

"The Williams Institute at the UCLA School of Law, a sexual orientation law and public policy think tank, estimates that about 3.8% of Americans identify as gay, les-bian, bisexual or transgender (2011, source)."

So, the 'transgender community' is microscopic, amoeba-like, minuscule and tiny. Yet the noise they make is turning the world upside down, isn't it.

What is transgenderism? GotQuestions has the answer

"Transsexualism, also known as transgenderism, Gender Identity Disorder (GID), or gender dysphoria, is a desire to change one’s sex or to fulfill the role of the opposite gender. Transsexuals / transgenders usually describe themselves as “trapped” in a body that does not match their gender. They will probably practice transvestism / transvestitism and may also seek hormone therapy and/or surgery to bring their bodies into conformity with their perceived gender."

"The Bible has plenty to say about human sexuality. Most basic to our understanding of sex is that God created two (and only two) genders: “male and female He created them” (Genesis 1:27). All the modern-day speculation about numerous genders—or even a gender “continuum” with unlimited genders—is unbiblical.
"


What is happening in a society that affirms and celebrates this kind of sexual sin? The answer is in Romans 1, as John MacArthur explains.

"It is that judicial act of God, whereby He lets the sinner go. In other words, He stops convicting. He stops calling. It's Genesis 6, where God says, "My Spirit will not always strive with man." There comes a point when God says, "That's it. I'm letting you go," and when God lets a society go, Verse 24 [in Romans] says, "He gives them over to uncleanness." That's sexual sin, and then Verse 26, He gives them up to vile passions, and women exchange the natural use for what is against nature, but likewise, the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their l-usts for one another, men with men, committing what is shameful, so you have lesbianism and homosexuality."

"When God gives a society up, they plunge into sexual sin, and then they sink deeper into homosexual sin, so while homosexuality is a forgivable sin, and, categorically, no worse than others, when it happens on a societal level, it is evidence that when a society affirms it; when it becomes normal in a society, that is evidence that God has turned that society over. If you look at America, you could look back to the sexual revolution of the '60s, which has now become a homosexual revolution of the '90s, in which the homosexuals have redefined themselves as a minority, like a racial group of people demanding rights. 

And so I think, while it is, as far as individual sin goes, no more damning than any other sin and as forgivable as any other sin. When it becomes the pattern of a society, it is evidence that God has turned that society over to that sin. It may be at that point an evidence that many in that society are not redeemable because they have gone past the age of grace."

And that is a sad state of affairs, to see that so many in society are not redeemable because God has given them over. I agree with Tommy Hunter's comment above, and I'd go one step further, It is an evidence that God has turned us over and the Age of Grace for American has closed for our society. We ARE under national judgment.

  1. Satan himself is a practicing trans gender personality. He is established in all the mystery Babylonian religions as god or goddess to suit himself in the moment.
    The popes announcement about same sex relationships and abortion are getting ready to transform these world religions into what will become a one world religion.
    I believe we should be in prayer and about the business of seeking to make the most of this opportunity to preach the truth to those who have been held captive by the RCC.
    There is no greater evidence than this stance to show where it is rooted.
