Virginia Senate Passes Transgender Educational Mandates for Children and Other Pro-LGBT Measures
Virginia Democrats are not just at war with the Bill of Rights; they are at war with traditional Christian values as well. They moved legislation through the state senate earlier this week that advances the LGBT agenda.
One bill will allow transgender people to be issued new birth certificates that are not based on the sex of their birth. Even if they have not surgically altered their sex, they will still be able to get the new birth certificate.
“I just think it’s important to try to make life easier for people without being discriminated (against) or bullied,” said Sen. Jennifer Boysko, a Democrat from Fairfax, who introduced the legislation.
“Allowing an individual who is transgender to change their birth certificate without having to go through the full surgery allows them to live the life that they are due to have,” she added.
“This bill is really important for the transgender community. Right now many transgendered people do not have identity documents… this is really problematic when people apply for jobs or try to open a bank account,” said Vee Lamneck of Equality Virginia.
Another bill involves mandating public schools in Virginia to have policies regarding transgender education. Left-wing bureaucrats at the state department of education will now be tasked with developing policies related to transgender individuals at schools. This could involve education that indoctrinates young children into this dangerous lifestyle that often leads to suicide and disease.
Other bills include a ban on conversion therapy for anyone under the age of 18, which will likely make it impossible for children with gender dysphoria to receive any treatment other than drugging and mutilation. Another bill contains language formally repealing gay marriage, which was already invalidated by the Supreme Court.
“I think it’s symbolic for our community and I think it’s one more way that the Commonwealth of Virginia says, ‘We support you,'” said Eric Hause, the publisher of OutLife 757 magazine.
“We were going to be together forever anyway,” Hause said of his gay lover. “We had already made that commitment to each other. Just being able to codify that and get married made all the difference to us in terms of how we protect each other.”
Christian parents are worried that these bills, which will likely be approved by the Assembly and be signed into law by Governor Coonman, will lead to the criminalization of teaching the Bible to their children.
Deborah Bunting of CBN News is urging Christians to fight back against this “new order” that is rapidly replacing Christianity with satanic degeneracy:
The people must decide whether to just accept or fight this new order that’s sweeping across many states. It is a tough fight when all the prevailing cultural winds tell you that because of what you believe you’re a bigot and not fair or compassionate or even American. The way we fight in America is by speaking up and winning the debate in the political sphere. That means to get involved in your community, stand up for your values by making an intelligent, loving argument for your views. And not insignificant to the battle, PRAY. Prayer can change the hearts of your political adversaries. Prayer can change the spiritual climate of your town. Pray for your community, pray for your state, pray for your country, pray for your leaders.
Luckily for Bunting, there is already a great deal of resistance that has been formed because of the Virginia state government’s repeated infringements upon the 2nd Amendment of the Constitution. The time for free Virginians to fight back against tyranny is now!
