Does Biden really believe transgender discrimination is the ‘Civil Rights Issue of Our Time’ or is he so desperate for votes that he’s scraping the bottom of the electoral barrel? Given what we know about the Obama administration and its support of homosexual marriage, I’m sure Obama-Biden will pick up the entire transgender voting population.
In fact, it was Biden who greased the skids for Obama on the homosexual marriage issue, so it’s no surprise that the vice-president would complete the circle of sexual perversion by putting transgendered people on the same level as blacks who brought to America as slaves. Blacks aren’t black because they died their skin black; they were born black. Blacks aren’t “transracials.” The next thing after making discrimination against people who physically change their sex illegal, we’re going to be forced to pay for the surgery through Obamacare.
If people want to mutilate themselves, I guess it’s their business, but I shouldn’t have to hire them or pay for their self-mutilation.
Transgender surgery is not like an appendectomy or heart surgery. It’s elective surgery. Since when does a person’s changed gender merit civil rights protection? It seems that the only people who are not protected are those who are straight. Where are our protections? They don’t exist. And neither do our moral beliefs.
In 2008, the New Mexico state Human Rights Commission ruled “that an Albuquerque wedding photographer discriminated against her would-be client by refusing to shoot a same-sex commitment ceremony.” Elane Photography was ordered to pay attorney’s fees of $6,637.93 for the discrimination.
So what happens when two transgendered people go to a photographer and get turned away because of a moral aversion to people lopping off body parts in the name of some civil rights claim?
The slippery slope of moral disintegration has no limits. A materialistic, rights-based worldview with no greater foundation than the group claiming a set of rights is like setting the sails of a ship “for the island of nihilism. This is the darkest continent of the darkened mind — the ultimate paradise of the fool.”1
