WILL GENDER NAME CHANGES EVER RETURN TO SANITY?

The VERY (VERY) liberal Evangelical Lutheran Church in Sweden wants God never to be called HE…but GOD.  The “Father, Son and Holy Spirit” will now only be THE TRINITY…

In America, ELCA has recently blessed the first transgender Bishop.  

Obviously, ELCA has gone very far Left in its misunderstanding of the Bible but we mustn’t put all of this on the Lutheran Church, a denomination I couldn’t admire more when it comes to the very unliberal Missouri Synod Lutheran Church.

This Bishop says he/she is humbled in being able to serve God, the same God who, throughout scripture, calls homosexuality a sin and who knows what He thinks of transgenderism?!!      This Bishop might want to start reading the Bible.

SO…we knew that academia had gone nuts and we’re THEM and IT now….but the CHURCH?

Pray for sanity, pray for truth, pray for obedience.

Amen…or Awomen?…when will they think of changing THAT?

    Went for a pre-dawn bike ride before the mornin thunderboomers build up and start chest thumpin. Came up with this while out there in the fresh air:

    Well . . . I’d really like to live in a society with an satisfying flavor of dignity and a strong aroma of grace, a soupçon of mystery, a tantalizing piquancy of tease, and a modicum of fantasy.

    This whole gender fluidity thingy is kinda like automobiles: the machine is there as a tool to perform work and other functions for its owner. Some prefer muscle cars, some prefer luxury sedans, some prefer all-terrain offroaders, some want speed, and some just simple practicality – start when you hit the button, shut down when you remove the key, go when you hit the right pedal, and brake when you hit the other one.

    You can have a Chevy, a Ford, a Subaru, a Lexus, a Jeep . . . even a Yugo if you can find one. It can be a two-seater, a four-seater, an eight-seater, a bus . . . and some will be happy with a two-wheeled one-seater.

    But the whole idea is to get you where you’re going, carry stuff for you, be there when you need it, and meet your needs.

    Gender is the same thing . . . a tool for the brain, for the perpetuation of the species. It’s NOT the same thing as sexuality – that’s how a Lexus differs from a street rod. The whole point of the body is to nourish, protect, and serve the brain, just like a minivan is to carry kids to soccer practice, bring groceries home from the store, and play some nice music and keep you comfortable while you’re doing it.

    Inside is a propulsion source, a steering system, and an assortment of gadgets, circuits, sensors, alarms, and environmental controls, just like the human body. A woman’s brain (not necessarily the same as the mind) is no more different from a man’s brain than a Camaro is from a Mustang – a sports car by any other name would cost as much to insure — and it’ll get you there and back if you take care of it.

    Given dignity, respect, equal opportunity, and preparation, one human mind is as good as another in terms of making things work right and solving problems when they don’t. Who gives a damn if an idea comes from a good-lookin woman inventor (Hedy Lamarr) or from a dweebish little creep with horn-rimmed glasses who built computers which crash without warning and need constant upgrades?

    The chalobies, six-packs, charisma, pheromones, allure, and stimulation are just add-on extras, and they tend to drive the price up, especially for maintenance after initial setup costs.

    So let’s just live with what a couple million years of Mother Nature’s design lab provided us and enjoy the ride. Some of us will relax in comfort and others will have to get out and push once in a while to get out of that mudhole on that dirt road leading nowhere.

    It’s not the damned machine that’s important – it’s what operates it, and despite what radical Islam says, flibbertigibbet females can operate complex machinery just as well as knuckledraggin paranoid males, given the training and opportunity.

    Let’s keep disCUSSion of gender in private and go back to being able to enjoy each other’s company through conversation, innuendo, imagination, and good old-fashioned flirting.

    Then when we get to the bedroom with whomever we’re comfortable being around, engage the autopilot and let the naked-ape part of the brain stem run the machine ‘til the hormones are exhausted . . . and then STFU about it the next day.

    I understand that when wires become crossed in a very complex machine weird things begin to happen. The difference between complex machines and human beings is that we can fix the crossed wires in machines; this is not altogether true of human beings. Homoerotic behavior among human beings isn’t something new, and neither is the “general acceptance” of the fact that some people prefer their own sex to the opposite. Ancient societies dealt with this odd attraction and lifestyle by leaving people alone (more or less) to live as they wish. But 3,000 years ago, few people gave much thought to the psychological issues involved in cross-wired “abnormal” sexual behavior.

    The fact that people today feel compelled to share their sexual preferences with people they do not know — even to the extent of making public announcements — far surpasses the oddity of same-sex attraction and it tells us that laying aside the physical acts, persons who embrace abnormal sexual preferences have, in addition, potentially serious psychological issues, as well. It may be as simple as coming to terms with homoeroticism, which is to say self-acknowledgment, to something more difficult, such as telling one’s parents that they’ve been run over by a sugar truck. But then to make a leap from that into the world of massive surgeries and chemical treatments to rewire the human-machine… well, then we’re talking about some very serious psychiatric issues — and by the time they get around to the surgeon’s knife, their mental disorders (some of which are devastating) have already taken hold.

    Personally, I believe that surgeons who perform such operations … given the mental state of their patients violate their Hippocratic oath, and those who laud the poor decisions of gender-confused persons enable and encourage psychotic behavior/decision making. There may be no greater example of what’s wrong with our (modern) society than this (although it is probably only the tip of the iceberg). There’s nothing I can do about it, except that I won’t be attending church services led by a psychotic dimwit.

    MUSTANG, one of our pastors is an ER Doctor………he gave a sermon on sex change surgeries. He’s not quite as conservative as most of us on most topics and I worried what he’d say. He was totally against surgery. He had stat after stat of those who’ve had the surgery and regret it. Quite sad information but it made such sense…….I was surprised because Tim would normally side with the underdog and so many feel those with sexual dysphoria are underdogs “the poor things”…which isn’t untrue, but……….

    My point here is what you said at the end “..except I won’t be attending church services led by…” Not sure any of them are psychotic dimwits but the whole idea of someone going against Scripture which supposedly shores up their faith is pretty bizarre.
    Then again, there are Christian Pastors now saying they don’t REALLY believe the Jesus virgin birth, etc. Mostly, those pastors are in seminaries…teaching. Sadly.
    And yes! Who CARES what someone’s sexuality is? Just keep it to yourself….no problem!!

    PETER! PINK UNIFORMS ON BOYS? How very ridiculous and stupid and sad……….
    (don ‘t believe Kid..he and Mustang wear pink ALL the time!)

    KID…ya, I heard about Sweden…gee, they’re so troubled that they NEVER had gang violence, etc., but now having accepted so many muslims in, they’re surprised gang violence is all over their cities!! GROW UP, Sweden……….what’d you THINK would happen? Keep paying for them, too…..as they destroy your beautiful once-peaceful country!

    BOCOPRO…funny you’d mention the absolutely gorgeous Hedy….word is she was a lesbian! But I know what you meant!
    I pretty much agree with your points………..LET IT BE. In private…who CARES? STFU!!!

    @ Kid … you don’t have it down yet. First, there’s a period of struggling with your self-identity. That takes several minutes. Then, there is the announcement to the world that you’re a (whatever). Depending on whether you use Yahoo, MSNBC, CNN, or the NYT, this could take several days. But once you’re over that hurdle and have been seen by several credible witnesses wearing your wife’s clothing, then you should be able to start claiming victimization. That’s when you go for the gofundme account. After you raise several million bucks, you’ll be in a better position to buy a cool motorcycle for all your friends, including me, Ed, Peter, and Z. Not Mal, though, on account of the fact that Mrs. Mal won’t let him get on one.

    My stepfather was a car salesman . . . got me a black 1965 Impala SS with all red interior for $1800.

    Total chick magnet. Cost was down because he had used it for over 3 months as his demonstrator. I paid it off with my combat pay from ‘Nam. Couldn’t sell it as new according to the law.

    Took it to the the P.I. with me in ’66 and sold it in 1969 for $1200. Overall not a bad deal.

    Came back to the World and bought a 1969 Chevelle 396 for $3100. Took that to the P.I. when I went back there in ’72 and sold IT for $2000.

    In fact, we sold nearly everything we owned before we came back to ConUS and bought all new stuff with the wad of money we got for it all . . . kids’ beds, clothes, bikes, TV, fridge, car — whole schmeer.

    In all, I got over 31 months of tax free and about 2 years’ worth of extra pay for serving in a combat zone.

    Good thing, too, ’cause we had 4 kids by the time I was E-6. I woulda been in deeeep debt without that extra tax-free pay and getting that gold chinstrap in 1969.

    Mustang, forget Mrs. Mal. Mal himself never cared for bikes and always been a car guy. I’ve had a fascination with cars since I was just a little guy, I got my first car in 1944 during WW ll and grew up during the original Hot Rod era. If we wanted speed, we had to build it ’cause no options were available when buying. We had Eddlebrock just a few blocks away from our high school (Vic Eddlebrock heads and intake manifolds) and Isky Cams 15 minutes away in Culver City, where Eddy Iskenderian would machine our cams (camshaft) for full race, 3/4 race, or whatever. Also mill heads to increase compression ratios for more speed, etc. Nearby his place was Hilburn for fuel injection…..in the 1940’s…. We self-taught ourselves to do these things. Now they’re saying if we ever have a cyber attack, it not only could shut down our utilities, internet, cell towers, etc. but also our cars due to all the computers in them. They suggest having an older vehicle to prevent that from ever happening. So much for progress, huh?

    Boco, what would you do to buy all those cars back now at those prices, right? After moving to Newport Beach in ’71, changed jobs in ’72 and gaving up a company car, I bought a red ’70 Dodge Challenger R/T convertible for $1,850, drove it for 1 1/2 years and sold it for $2,100 during the gas “shortage” created in 1973. What I wouldn’t give to get that one back at those prices!

    BP, what a novel comparison!

    Wait ’til the film 1946 gets around. The trailer opens with a “challenge” scene from Fortress MacArthur, and makes its first big booboo at 18 seconds with a straw man. Goes downhill from there. For those who want a response, Stand to Reason has a carefully articulated one. https://www.str.org/w/the-claim-about-homosexuality-in-the-film-1946-is-irrelevant?p_l_back_url=%2Fsearch%3Fq%3D1946

    Let me had this tidbit about boys and men flying feminine colors: These are club teams, the parents pay for their boys to play anywhere from $500-$1000, they pay for their son’s uniform after giving their consent, their approval and a check for their sons to wear pink baseball uniforms. Truly a sad commentary on a segment of today’s parents and their children. I would venture to say those of us and our parents, our generation would not have participated in such disgraceful goings on.
