We all saw this coming when the label of "transgender" became an excuse to "do what thou wilt".
For those who are not familiar with the term, transgender has nothing to do with having had sex-change surgery. It merely means that a boy or man feels that he is a female and vice-versa.
"Female students at Florence High School in Colorado were threatened with hate crimes charges when they complained about being harassed by a transgender boy in the girls’ bathroom.
When the female students continued to complain about the harassment, the school threatened to kick them off the athletic team or even hit them with hate crimes charges if they didn’t stay silent.....
The school so adamantly sided with the transgender student that officials even suggested the girls give up access to most of their restrooms altogether, reported CBN News.
Although Colorado’s treatment of transgender school children is determined by policy, California became the first U.S. state to mandate by law the right of girls and boys to choose which bathroom they would use regardless of their gender back in August when Democratic Gov. Jerry Brown signed AB 1266, otherwise known as the ‘Transgender Bathroom Bill’. The law takes effect on January 1st.........
Californians “jolted by the mental image of children sharing lavatories and locker rooms with opposite-sex classmates,” are making concerted efforts to repeal the bill before it becomes law,reports Bloomberg. If the bill is suspended, it could set the precedent for other areas of the country.
However, in states like Colorado, Massachusetts, Connecticut and Washington, students and parents are at the mercy of schools who have already instituted policies which exalt the rights of a tiny minority while violating the privacy rights of a huge majority of students who are being forced to share bathrooms with members of the opposite sex who identify as transgender..."
For the purpose of this post, I will refrain from treating the historical discrepancies of names and titles in the account.
During the period of the Babylonian exile, a hand (Fingers) is/are seen writing on a wall while a royal feast in being enjoyed. The intellectuals are brought to determine the meaning of the writing, but are unable to make anything out of it. Desperate for an interpretation, the king has Daniel, one of the exiles, brought forward to try to make heads or tails of the inscriptions:
24 “Then from his presence the hand was sent, and this writing was inscribed. 25 And this is the writing that was inscribed: mene, mene, tekel, and parsin. 26 This is the interpretation of the matter: mene, God has numbered the days of your kingdom and brought it to an end; 27 tekel, you have been weighed in the balances and found wanting;28 peres, your kingdom is divided and given to the Medes and Persians.”
Today, the situation is almost reversed; all of us not only are able to see the handwriting on the wall and understand its meaning, we just refuse to acknowledge that either the hand or the writing exists.
The nation is being undermined from every angle, but we either ignore this fact or tell ourselves that, somehow, the message will be changed to something more palatable......"
