Ideas have consequences. Choices have consequences. Laws have consequences. Changes in moral certainties have consequences. The hit AMC series Breaking Bad made that abundantly clear and obvious.
We’ve seen how the so-called ‘gay’ rights movement has resulted in certain types of sexual acts becoming protected by law. But most Americans mostly likely tolerated same-sex sex because they believed that what other people did had no immediate effect on them.
A number of cases have shown that these new laws are affecting people with businesses who for moral reasons do not want to support homosexual weddings. Businesses have been fined. Another business had to close its doors.
Former NFL player Craig James who played in the 1980s for the New England Patriots and later became a sportscaster for ESPN was recently fired from his new position at FOX Sports Southwest because of his views on homosexual marriage.
But we’re beginning to see the extreme effects of pushing for normalizing the abnormal and immoral. Here’s a story from Belgium:
“A Belgian woman died by lethal injection this week after she requested to be euthanized following a sex-change operation.
“Nancy Verhelst, 44, known in recent years as Nathan, cited ‘unbearable psychological suffering’ as the reason for her death wish. She had received hormone therapy in 2009, as well as a mastectomy and other surgeries, in her pursuit to transform from female to male.
“However, the surgery left Verhelst feeling dissatisfied, and she did not like the way she looked.”
If that weren’t bad and sad enough, this story out of California is even more troubling. It’s gotten very little attention nationally, although CNN reported on the story in late 2011:
“The lesbian parents of an 11-year-old boy who is undergoing the process of becoming a girl last night defended the decision, claiming it was better for a child to have a sex change when young.
“Thomas Lobel, who now calls himself Tammy, is undergoing controversial hormone blocking treatment in Berkeley, California to stop him going through puberty as a boy.
“But Pauline Moreno and Debra Lobel warn that children with gender identity disorder forced to postpone transitioning could face a higher risk of suicide.”
There’s no doubt that this young boy is sexually confused, and now sexually abused. The confusion could be related to the fact that his adoptive two-female parents are confusing him. Who knows what they’ve told him and what he’s seen. While the “psychiatrists diagnosed Thomas with gender identity disorder,” a better diagnosis is that Tommy’s parents, the medical community, and the courts have the disorder that is being projected on the young boy. Psychiatrist Keith Ablow writes, “[h]uman beings do model one another — in terms of emotion, thought and behavior.”
As you can imagine, Dr. Ablow’s comments kicked up a dust storm of criticism from the LGBT community. The purpose of the attacks was to send a message: If Dr. Ablow continues to attack transgenderism, his livelihood could be in jeopardy.
Meanwhile, there are a lot of sexually confused young people who will be told that lopping off body parts to change one’s sex is perfectly normal.
