What drives your moral judgements? Yesterday I suggested heart and not head. Here’s an example to get you started. It’s a story about ‘gendering’ in Manchester. Yes, it’s about toilets. My apologies.
Gendering? Where did this word come from? And it’s transitive. Oh my gosh, it’s actually transitive! You are gendering me! How dare you? There are few things more emotive than the charge ‘don’t gender me!’ Even with this horrible use of language. Forget reason, this is all emotion.
But it’s really postmodernism gone completely mad. There is no longer male and female. We are what we choose to be and apparently, it’s fluid. You want to cause massive confusion in a young person’s life, tell him/her that genitalia are no indicator of gender. Really. You can make it up as you go along.
I’m thinking three Scriptures, just for some enlightenment.
Male and female he created them. Gen. 1
For God knows that when you eat from it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God. Gen 3
In those days Israel had no king; everyone did as they saw fit. Judges 21
I hope you don’t think I’m ‘imposing my religion on you.’
That hot chestnut I’ll address tomorrow.
