Transgender Bills to ‘Ban Christianity’?

A showdown between religious freedom and transgender privileges is underway in Texas, where six pro-LGBTQ bills are targeting the constitutional rights of Christians.

The magnitude of the latest wave of pro-LGBTQ legislation is so severe that one conservative columnist argues that the left is attempting “to ban Christianity in Texas.”

Bracing for the worst

While LGBTQ activists across the Lone Star State are confident that the upcoming state bills will enhance the so-called “gay rights” of Texans, many conservative pastors in the state are fearful that the proposed laws – that would add gender identity and sexual orientation to Texas discrimination laws – will diminish their right to express their faith.

Texas Pastors Council President Dave Welch believes that it is absurd that the ultra-left is now arguing that a person’s decision to believe they are the opposite sex is given the same recognition and precedence as a person’s natural-born ethnicity.

    God poured out his judgement on sodom and Gomorrah . HE has not changed His mind about the sin of homosexuality. HIS mercy and love for humanity is the only thing staying judgement on America , but He will eventually honor His word, for it is forever settled in heaven.

    The LGBTQ community want nothing more than to stomp on Christianity for one reason. The Christian faith does not recognize same-sex marriage. What boggles my mind is how much power these people have when they are such a small percentage of the population.

    Classic symptoms of the disintegration and demise of a society, along with the rise of Satanism, the millennia’s “personality profile” that is close to the classic symptoms of a sociopathic personality and a rising mindset that is approaching a “Lord of the flies” amorality; all just as the Bible prophesies have told us would come in this last generation on earth as we know it.

For too long we as Christians has been a cowering bunch of potluck, head to the clouds, hand clapping people. The Devil has done what he has done becouse we have sat by and LET him! We must get involved. Jesus did not sit by and LET things happen. Thankfully, He CAME down from Heaven, He walked among us, He DID us!!! He was involved; the cross was HIS doing!! We must be I volved with Him being involved with us.

    The LGBTQ community live lives of fantasy, illusion and deception. How legislators can even contemplate normalizing it in law, teaching it in schools, and forcing it upon general society suggests they have completely lost their moral and ethical compass as well as their legitimacy as representatives of the people. While a great many “normal” people may also do and say things that are not right, true, good, and not in the best interests of a healthy functioning society, most do not disavow those ideals and standards and try to force others to accept the wrong they do as valid, desirable, harmless, or in any way good either for themselves or the broad community. If legislators and the society they are supposed to serve with truth and honour want now to pick and eat the same fruit as did Adam and Eve and think they can do so without reaping the same disasterous consequences, they are sadly mistaken. Worse that they now intend to persecute the righteous and those who believe in good moral standards even when they stumble in the practicing of them. How have we come to this!

    Remember when we were all so loudly told that they only wanted to be equal, and their “lifestyle” would not affect the rest of us ? Apparently, the new definition of “equal” is having special privileges, protections, and rights, not available to the rest of us. I define it as tyranny. How about you?

            2 Chr 7 v14 is well known but never quoted in the NT which mentions many references to OT.

      What as Christians can we do to stop things like this? For one thing if all Christians, the entire church turned out at every election and vote against the Democrats you wouldn’t have these far left liberal judges that allow and agree with these demonic attacks in our great country against Christians and our values. Too many of us Christians complain but don’t take action and get involved like we should when the Bible expects us to be strong in the Lord and get involved. How do you think in so many ways with political correctness has the United States and even Canada too changed so much for the worse? It’s because the far left liberal are relentless with activism and have millions of activist and it’s time the church fight back and put on the whole armor of God. Call your senators, call your congress person, send emails, call the Whitehouse. Be firm but polite. The church is the people, we are the church and massive protests all over the country need to happen in a peaceful and respectful way. Write letters to editors to all newspapers to help change public opinion. When you see dishonest things with Fake News call them out on it. Hal Lindsey has a good media news ministry if you’re honest news reporting. Also, the Democrat Party is all for illegal immigration not because they care about immigrants like the claim they do it’s because Democrats know they tend to vote for their party and they want to change the demographics of the country so that it will be next to impossible for a Republican to win. Democrats put on a big show to pretend they care about immigrants when they really don’t, if they weren’t voting for their party you better believe there would be hateful attacks against them. In order to get this problem under control in a Godly, humane way a good way to get involved is through Most important we need to fast and pray for the country as well. Pray for Canada too they are our neighbors and political correctness has ruined them as well and Christians are having it hard there. Despite how things look keep in mind that nothing is impossible with God and remember that Jesus Christ is Lord.

    When are the people of the church going to wake up and say enough, no more? It’s time that Christians start to file lawsuits and turn out in massive numbers in protests. Enough of already with these looney tune demons! Christians must stop being so weak and do something to stand up against these demonic spirits and also stop voting for the radical Democrats as they are not the same party they use to be they actually cave in and will appoint judges in the courts that will put up with this kind of garbage. Wake up people! We are to be soldiers in Christ not sit back and do nothing! We were bought at a very high price on the Cross through Christ and it’s time we stand up for Him and our values!

    Absolutely a sign of the “great apostasy”, aka the “great falling away” as you well know! What did Yahoshua/Jesus say? “get away from me you workers of ‘lawlessness’ (rebellion is as witchcraft – all signs of people giving in to deception, following falsehood, being deluded — it is a fearful time to live in and people do NOT have the FEAR OF YAHWEH because of desiring CONTROL and POWER over their lives instead of SUBMISSION to the CREATOR and GREAT SHEPHERD OF THE FLOCK.

    One thing we ask you to consider: the “shield of Solomon” or what so many call the “star of David” without knowing the ROOT and history of the symbol. There is an article written by a woman names Deborah Taylor called “SATURN and the SACRED HEBDOMAD” which exposes the planetary worship of the jews. I am sure you know the scriptures in Revelation speaking of those who “call themselves jews” but are not. This teaching explores and teaches why this symbol has been used and portrays the religion of these false jews called Khazarian jews. The TRUE symbol of Israel should be the MENORAH and many who have researched this for decades and longer know this is true. Please do not use that hexagon symbol on your coin. It is not pleasing to the Almighty Elohim of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. I know people say it is what you believe something to be, but
    JESUS/YAHSHUA taught us Ye shall know the TRUTH and the Truth shall set you free. Please seek to know the ROOT and the TRUTH of this matter. Shalom, Garry and Linda

    According to the constitution laws are to be made for all people. When you begin to illegally legislate laws to benefit one group over another you set a precedent of superiority of one group over another that defeats the concept that all are created equal. For the same reason all hate crime legislation is unconstitutional and should be repealed.

    This is a clear strategy the enemy is using to destroy the very foundation of our freedoms (not just in the US but globally). Freedom of expression and freedom of religious beliefs are the two under attack in this debate! The enemy is so cunning in that this issue, which only represents a very small percentage of the population, carries the weight and support at the highest levels, so that they possess the power to alter the rights and freedoms of the majority! Only the enemy has the power to manipulate the minds of rationale thinking leaders beyond the point of reason. They actually believe they are helping to advance human rights and freedoms, when in actual fact they are diminishing ours and their own. This is a clear fulfillment of prophecy which supports the fact that the Anti-Christ will be someone that either associates with or practices the same beliefs as the LGBTQs (need to find the specific verse that supports this). A person who has swapped the truth of their identity (Genesis 1:27), that they are created in the image of God, either male or female, for the lie of the enemy (that they can be both, or can somehow swap these clear genders) is someone who has been deceived and is no longer walking in the Truth of the Word of God, but rather is consumed and governed by their fleshly desires. They have chosen to reject Christ and His righteousness and holiness, and have swapped evil for good and good for evil (Isaiah 5:20). 2 Timothy 3 describes this generation and the state of depravity we are facing today in very clear terms. The LGBTQ movement is part of that and its direct attack on all that stands to oppose their agenda is not something that Christians should be supporting. We love the person, but not the sin! No where in the Bible does it compel us to love or tolerate sin! (1 Corinthians 13:6). Surely we are at the end of the end when we see issues like this take precedence over more pressing and immediate issues of concern such as rising racial/ethnic clashes, immigration, gun control, abortions, and many more. I am not a US citizen, but the US is one of the most influential nations on earth and will be pivotal to the events that will unfold in Revelations prior to Christ’s return, so I make it my business to watch what is happening on this front. Thank you for being the herald of the end times that keeps us informed and updated when it is most needed. God bless and increase your ministry, your life and your family in the great work you are doing. May we (Christians) never fall silent during these perilous times when the Truth of the Word is most crucial in safeguarding the rights and freedoms we enjoy and take for granted today!

      Hello Jeff,

      Romans 1:21 Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened.22 Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools,23 And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things.24 Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves:25 Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.26 For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature:27 And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.28 And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient;

    Conrad S. Lee says:

    We need to bold in the face of the demonic spirit that’s trying to take over, “for God has not given us the of fear, but of power, of love, and a sound mind”. God is not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance, and if people choose to go against the word God, burning in their lust, same sex with same and refuse to repent, die without Christ, then they will have chosen the obvious consequence, hell , with the one who deceived them, the Devil. I could probably comment some more, but enough said. Shalom!!!

    A Christian is one who is Christ-like. Christ obeyed and support scripture to the point where he even got baptized to fulfill the steps of righteousness.

    It can be shown that nearly 100% of the transgender people are not only confused but on some form of psychological medication therefore are not mentally stable to be proposing legislation for the populous who do not require medication for mental stability. This fact alone should preclude any passage of such ludicrous proposals. This has to be taken into consideration.

    In seeing all the is being past in different states, abortion issues, drugs legalized, California teaching their children that gender doesn’t matter, and now this only shows me that the devil knows his time is running out. He’s doing anything he can to destroy everything that God has blessed or ordained. Jesus spoke of these times. The church needs to wake up and get ready for His coming.

    Your grouping trans-people in with all the others. There are a lot of confuse people out there. The picture you have is not a transgender. Of that world there are only about 1-10% are really transgender. The fight should have been in the voters booth. Texas has a lot of Christians and I watch a lot of the church programs on tv on Sunday from Texas. Were are the Christians on election day ? The more you fight them, the more they believe they are right. They will have to cross the river of pain before they reach the other side.

  33. ron
    ron says:

    this is ridiculous ! it reminds me of the time that john the Baptist told the king about his sin and the king ended up beheading john.i would imagine there are some members of the lgbtq folks that would like to behead Christians that are warning them about their lifestyle.deep down inside I ‘d imagine that most of them know what they’re doing is wrong in the eyes of God,but they would rather silence that and do things in an attempt to soothe their conscience and condone what they, and others of like mind, are doing.. like the scripture says,in the last days people will be calling good evil.and evil good.that is exactly what is happening.


    I am a believer in Christ as well as a person of the lifestyle and when I say lifestyle I mean gay community. I need Christ in my life in 2012 and he has been changing my life can’t say that I have totally and left the gay community but I do not support the gay community trying to ban the ministry of Christ Jesus what I do support is the ban of Christianity. Jesus did not call his followers Christians man gave that name to the believers of Christ 2 differentiate us from the others who only believe in the Torah God only. We as believers in Christ must imitate Christ. We as believers put a big emphasis on homosexuality when in the eyes of Christ no sin is greater than the next so here you got the religious Church going against the gay community when they should have embraced the gay community with love not compromise but to draw them with love and kindness. No the people of the lifestyle have been beat down talked about wounded by the religious Church. I don’t believe and the changing of sex parts but I do believe that everyone is entitled to love whomever they love.

  35. Fernando Sierra
    Fernando Sierra says:

    I believe as a person that this is wrong on every level, but as a Christian I believe that this is something that the bible predicted would happen and that no one would be able to stop it. We as Christians can embrace that if this happens we will be one step closer to our redemption through Christ second coming. We should however be against it and preach the word of God, but that should makes us rejoice for those of us who follow the lord will be saved unlike the ones that are doing this. I didn’t say it, the bible did or rather God said it.

  36. kent copeland
    kent copeland says:

    This is a sore subject because all of us are sexual beings and feel strongly as such. I believe that we need to take our lead from Christ himself and that is to act in compassion and walk in truth. Jesus understood that we are all very messed up and desperate to find anything to ease our pain or make sense of the world. The gay community is especially this way, in the end they are looking for love and acceptance. these people deserve our compassion and mercy just as Jesus always acted in mercy (unless he was being misrepresented). Jesus also always spoke truth, he never denied that wrong is wrong but he did have compassion for sinners, all sinners, not just the sins that tempted him but the ones he did not relate to as well. The answer lies in finding unfiltered truth. 1. Jesus was strongly against ALL sexual immorality before marriage and spoke of it’s corrosive nature. 2. God specifically stated Marriage is between a man and a woman and never wavered on this position. The issue is one that got rolling in the sexual revolution and has brought us to where we are. Everything has a cause and affect if we want to understand the affect we need to look at the societal cause. We need to purify ourselves and repent so we can be the answer and not the cause. Where would we be if we acted toward sleeping around the same way we act toward homosexuality. I dare say that homosexuality would rarely be spoken of.
