You could be forgiven for concluding that this world, or at least a large part of it, has gone nuts. The fact that there is so much turmoil over the determination or acknowledgement of something that should be as obvious a what a person’s sex is, is a measure of how off the rails things have become.
Issues of transgenderism are hot topics, and one wonders what the next topic impacting human sexuality will be. Surely, it’s not going to stop here.
Canada has apparently determined that minors have the “right” to determine what their gender is, and if the parents oppose that decision, that the government has a right to take custody of the child. So, yes, things can get worse.
Take a deep breath and then read this:
“The Supporting Children, Youth and Families Act of 2017, also know as Bill 89, was passed in Ontario by a vote of 63 to 23, The Christian Times reported.
“The law, which replaces old laws governing child protection, foster care and adoption services, instructs all child services and judges, to take into consideration a child’s ‘race, ancestry, place of origin, color, ethnic origin, citizenship, family diversity, disability, creed, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity and gender expression.’
“Minister of Child and Family Services Michael Coteau, who introduced the bill, said ‘I would consider that a form of abuse, when a child identifies one way and a caregiver is saying no, you need to do this differently.’
“‘If it’s abuse, and if it’s within the definition, a child can be removed from that environment and placed into protection where the abuse stops.'”
Fortunately, there is opposition to this new law, although it is doubtful that it will do much good.
“Jack Fonseca, a political strategist for Campaign Life Coalition, meanwhile, criticized the new law.
“With the passage of Bill 89, we’ve entered an era of totalitarian power by the state, such as never witnessed before in Canada’s history. Make no mistake, Bill 89 is a grave threat to Christians and all people of faith who have children, or who hope to grow their family through adoption.”
The bill is also an example of the transgender movement and its allied groups gone wild. This is nothing less than one of the most blatant attacks on the family we’ve ever witnessed. If it is the desire of those in Ontario who support this law to destroy any conventional definition of the family, Christian or otherwise, it’s hard to imagine a more effective move.
We weep for the children who will be the victims of such abhorrent legislation.
