When Michael Brown began his Sept. 6 WorldNetDaily column by declaring, "This article is not meant to attack young people struggling with deep-seated gender confusion," that was a warning sign -- attacking transgender people, and the rest of the LGBTQ community, is his job. So he has decided to pretend those "young people struggling with deep-seated gender confusion" are the resl victims -- "To the contrary, it is meant to expose the attack on these young people" -- and anyone who helps them affirm their gender identify is the real evil ones. He went on to rant:
I have been warning against the trajectory of LGBTQ activism since 2004, and over these years, I have talked with countless parents and spouses and siblings, many of them weeping as they shared their stories. But recently, after speaking to several thousand Christians in Franklin, Tennessee, the accumulation of stories I heard was overwhelming.
A father came to me in tears, asking what to do for his 17-year-old daughter. Just two years ago, she was a committed Christian, telling her pastor that she stood with him in the fight for biblical sexuality.
One year later, she was identifying as male and threatening suicide if her father refused to authorize her treatments. Not only so, but her older sister had cut off communication with him because he had not capitulated.
A grandmother asked for advice for her grandson, who lived with her and her husband. His best friend, another little boy in the same building, was now wearing a dress. Should they still play together?
A mother broke down crying as she asked how she should relate to her daughter, now in her 20s. A few years ago, she came out as lesbian, then got "married" to her partner, but now has announced she is male and is in the process of transitioning. The daughter also professes to be a devoted Christian who never misses a church service and who opposes LGBTQ activism.
How on earth did this happen? How have so many people, especially young people, suddenly become so convinced that they are not what their biology and chromosomes say they are? (Again, I do not write this to criticize but to understand, not to hurt but to help.)
And how is it that, according to President Biden and others, "transgender equality" is the civil rights issue of our time?
Rather than consider the possibility that transgender people deserve respect as they try to figure out who they are and that they perhaps they deserve some dignity, Brown plays the "demon" card:
It's as if a horde of demons has been unleashed and our society has fallen into deep deception and delusion. And the ultimate victims, targeted for indoctrination from their earliest years, are the children. (If you think I'm exaggerating, take a minute to watch this "queer, non-binary" pre-school teacher celebrating her accomplishments or this toddler reading through a gay ABC book.)
Whatever the cause of this societal madness, the question that remains is simple: What are we going to do about it?
Nope, definitely not an attack on transgender people. No sirree.
