There is something so creepy and ironic about the Nashville shooting taking place on a day leading up to the "Trans Day of Vengeance." It is even more creepy that the organizers were planning to go ahead with the event this weekend claiming there is "no connection" between the "vengeance" Hale carried out against her targets and the violent rhetoric of the trans community. Since their initial response, the organizers cancelled the event -- not out of respect for the murder victims, but:
due to a credible threat to life and safety.... The safety of our trans community is first priority. This threat is the direct result of the flood of raw hatred directed toward the trans community after the Tennessee shooting.
What a bunch of BS from a group that constantly harps on the "hate speech" of their opponents. Will the real haters please stand up! [Excuse the language in the photo, but it illustrates exactly where the violence is - not coming from the Christian community.]
But in true Alinsky fashion, never let a crisis go to waste. Once again the violent aggressors turn themselves into the poor victims. Get out your violins and play a Mozart requiem for Audrey Hale.
If you won't affirm their mental disease, use the "correct" pronouns, or refuse to celebrate their expulsion of biological women from what were formerly "women's sports," the LGBTQ crowd will target you for "vengeance." They will dox you, threaten your families, make you lose your job, and, in Hale's case, kill you or just kill randomly to express their rage. This is the victim status the current evil administration fosters. And taking away guns will not solve the problem.
The only legitimate response from Christians is to pray for courage and double down on the truth. Alexander Solzhenitsyn was a truth teller extraordinaire. Read his promises about truth and refuse to play the lying game!
Yes, enter the make-believe world of those with dementia. That's a fairy tale walk. But never, never enter the sick and socially disastrous game of affirming the insane world of gender ideology and LGBTQ horror fantasy. No drugs or surgery can turn a biological male into a female or a biological female into a male. You only end up with a horror story like The Island of Dr. Moreau. Two people of the same sex cannot "marry." They are playing house and when they adopt children or pay a surrogate they inflict their delusion on innocent children.
Lying will not solve the problems of sexually confused individuals. Neither is it a loving act to freeze someone in their sin. Jesus loved the woman at the well enough to tell her the truth. The man with whom she was living was not her husband. Truth freed her. The same with the woman taken in adultery. (Where, pray tell her was her partner in sin?) Love speaks the truth in charity.
I am especially praying for the parents of Audrey Hale. What a painful time for them. It reminds me of Sue Klebold, Dylan Klebold's mother, who wrote A Mother's Reckoning: Living in the Aftermath of Tragedy after the Columbine massacre.
The response to hate must be love, but what's called for here is tough love, not a heartless "compassion" that affirms the lie. As we enter Holy Week and the Passion of Christ, let us embrace and make reparation for our own sins and the sins of others, following Jesus who is "the Way, the Truth, and the Life."
