Whose Will Is Of Concern To The Congress?
To The Reader’s Forum:
In a semi-hostile environment, Greg Steube had to know blowback would come from quoting a Bible verse prohibiting cross-dressing, adding, “But let’s be clear, it’s not clothing or personal style that offends God, but rather the use of one’s appearance to act out or take on a sexual identity different from the one biologically assigned by God at birth.” By men, women, and children doing that, “they’re making a statement that God didn’t know what He was doing when he created them… [and this then] “goes directly against what is laid out in scripture.”
Those words were stated unapologetically by Congressman Steube in rock-ribbed opposition to the mistitled Equality Act.
On cue, he was shamed sharply for being transphobic and intolerant. If that wasn’t harsh enough, Congressman Gerald Nadler dismissively scorned him saying, “Mr. Steube, what any religious tradition describes as God’s will is no concern of this Congress.”
Excuse me, Mr. Nadler, “God’s will is of no concern…?” If not His will, then whose will? Your will? Pelosi’s will? The will of those in power? When God’s will is of no concern, you end up with the fake Equality Act which is more like the Cancel Out Women Act or the Female Obliteration Act. Why do I say that?
This bill allows biological males to access female-only spaces. (Privacy, anyone?) It would compel female athletes to compete in the same event with biological males who feel they’re female. (That’s fairness?) It jeopardizes some hospitals and medical professionals if they conscientiously object to providing abortions or “sex reassignment” surgeries. (Doesn’t this cancel the freedom of conscience?) Christian colleges and faith-based charities would be compelled to acknowledge same-sex unions and transgenderism. (Let’s cancel religious liberty while we’re at it.) It would punish some Christian businesses refusing to cater to immoral, but legal, ceremonies. (Only fascist-friendly cancel-culture government punishes like this.)
Dr. Everett Piper nailed it: “The misogyny of the Equality Act is nothing short of the ‘blackfacing’ of women.”
Congressmen infected by the Nadler “sin”drome of no concern for the will of God eked it through the House in a sad twist of irony. Just enough of the 88% who are in Congress claiming affiliation with a church voted to pass it. Even our church-affiliated congressman, Tom Reed, voted for it. What was he thinking?
Unlike him, South Dakota governor Kristi Noem displayed clear thinking, moral clarity and common sense on International Women’s Day by banning biological males from competing in girls’ sports.
