He that justifieth the wicked, and he that condemneth the just, even they both [are] abomination to the LORD. Proverbs 17:15
One of the things that bothers me as a Christian is when our right wing pseudo faith based opposition tries to hide behind Scripture and use it to justify their bigotry and hatred.
It is a centuries old tactic for conservatives to try to use the Bible as a shield in their attempts to other and demonize people, and now they are attempting to do so against transgender people.
The Southern Baptist denomination made it the official policy of their church in 2014 to hate trans people, following the Roman Catholic Church in doing so.
One of the basic commandments of our faith is to love thy neighbor as you love yourself. It’s obvious these faux faith based so called ‘christians’ hate themselves since they are so busy spending their time and hate orgs money bearing false witness against transgender people.
And the most odious part of their transphobic hate rants is that they are aiming them at transgender kids and their parents
I have a major problem with that. My pissivity about it is heightened even further when you try to claim that God is on your side when you spout your loud and wrong facts free anti trans comments
God hates injustice and the people who push it. It’s even more odious when you pastors are getting paid to push anti-trans hatred for your personal and political gain at trans kids and their parents who unconditionally love them.
Hate is not a Texas value, much less a value in our Christian faith tradition. Love is.
It is not godly to oppress trans people, and if you pseudo faith bathed oppressors keep pushing that bald faced lie, you will reap what you sow, and the trans folks you are trying to oppress will be standing tall as your efforts to oppress them continue to fail.
