I am serious in my question? The Political Correctness and the nullification of so many things in today’s society, I frequently ask myself and others, “Is Common Sense Dead?” Somebody rightly asked, “Why do they call it common sense when it is so uncommon?” There are many things I could use in this discussion, but I will selectively extract one or two to suffice.
The Gender Nullification activism that is growing in America and around the world is alarming to this American. I am a father, a grandfather, a husband, a brother, a son, a patriot, a veteran, and most importantly a Christian. My core conviction is that God is the Creator. I have unrelenting belief in God’s Word and therefore trust what the Bible says far more than what the government or man says.
The Bible declares in Genesis 1:27 – “So God created man in His own image; in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them.” Also, in Genesis 5:1-2 – “…God created man, He made him in the likeness of God. 2 He created them male and female, and blessed them and called them Mankind in the day they were created.” I trust God and he did not create 112 genders as google now suggests but 2, male and female.
The idea of Gender Fluidity is a relatively new idea that argues that gender is not ‘fixed’ as the Bible indicates, DNA demands, chromosomes demand, and genitals reveal. The idea advanced by those wanting to rewrite the Bible and science suggest that gender can change along a spectrum of masculine-feminine and encompass elements of both genders. Then there is the idea of Gender Dysphoria that argues that there is distress associated with a mismatch between biological sex and gender identity. That is not a biological issue but a psychological one and created by our depraved society.
We also encounter Body Dysmorphia which is an entirely different condition, they argue, that is characterized by strong feelings that the body is flawed. Basically it is saying God, you blew it when you created me, and I need to correct your error. I would hate to stand before God and try to argue that. We encounter Transgender which has morphed into meaning so many different things but basically is the idea that gender is fluid and changes with changing attitudes and conditions. We have the Transsexual which seeks to correct God’s error (their view not mine) by transitioning from one biological gender to another via medical (hormonal or surgical) means.
The list found among other places is detailed at https://dudeasks.com/how-many-genders-are-there-in-2019/ and I suggest you read it for yourself. The list and definitions are more than troubling, they scream that ‘common sense’ has completely vanished from planet earth.
New York City’s Commission on Human Rights has taken a position that slaps sanity and common sense in the face with their 31 recognized genders which include names such as ‘drag king, drag queen, butch, femme queen, gender fluid, gender blender, gender bender, and gender gifted.’ I have no idea what they truly mean in some of those but know they are rubbing it in our faces and attempting to force us to accept things that are foreign to common sense, genetics, science, and the Bible.
I believe that the end game is not empowering people to be who they truly are but to dis-empower those of us who hold to traditional and biblical values. They are seeking to dis-empower those of us who value the traditional two-parent family of mother and father, male and female. I read a statement by Theodore Dalrymple, an English writer, and retired prison doctor and psychiatrist who has studied this extensively.
He said: “Political correctness is communist propaganda writ small. In my study of communist societies, I came to the conclusion that the purpose of communist propaganda was not to persuade or convince, nor to inform, but to humiliate; and therefore, the less it corresponded to reality the better. When people are forced to remain silent when they are being told the most obvious lies, or even worse when they are forced to repeat the lies themselves, they lose once and for all their sense of probity [integrity, honesty]. To assent to obvious lies is to co-operate with evil, and in some small way to become evil oneself. One’s standing to resist anything is thus eroded and even destroyed. A society of emasculated liars is easy to control. I think if you examine political correctness, it has the same effect and is intended to.”
That is disturbing and causes me to ask again, “Is Common Sense Dead?” The lunacy regarding open borders is part and parcel of this agenda. The idea that America should become a Socialist nation is part of the package. The Political Correctness that seeks to force Americans to abandon their God-given right to “Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness” embodied in our inalienable rights and constitutional protections.
The modern Democrat Party has abandoned common sense and is on a mission to destroy what our Founders and the Framers gave us in the late 1700’s. They are pursuing a pathway that will lead to Tyranny, Despotism, and the loss of most if not all our freedoms and liberties. How millions are embracing that political agenda is beyond reason and forces me to ask, “Is Common Sense Dead?”
If they win in November 2020 and retake the White House, keep the House of Representatives, and reclaim the Senate we will incur infringement upon or rights and liberties like we have not yet witnessed. The Supreme Court will be expanded and packed with liberal activist jurists. The lower courts will be packed. The intelligence agencies, the IRS, national law enforcement agencies and the Department of Justice will become weapons against those of us who resist. The regulations will become monstrous, the fines, fees, and taxes will be astronomical, and we will become unwilling serfs of the State. Bernie Sander’s 97.5% tax rate on billionaires will seem minor compared to what they will do to those of us they have deemed deplorable.
God help us wake up, return to God and our moral moorings and allow Common Sense to be restored! WAKE UP AMERICA!
God bless you and God bless America!
