It seems to me, progressive hubris has reached the acme of absurdity, even pretending they can change that which God himself has ordained! I am of course talking about the ongoing human tragedy of sex change operations. While there have always been, and always will be, people with mental illness that fills their own lives and the lives of others with heavy burdens, now the state has taken it upon itself to promote mental illness as something that can be fixed, with the surgeon’s knife. The continuing human tragedy destroys lives, rips apart families and even negatively effects people with no connection. The hatred of progressive atheists for God and the world we live in is so palpable, they care nothing of the magnitude of suffering they inflict on the world, all that counts is their assault on sanity, the universe and even God himself.
Every study about the effect of sex change operations shows, those who have mutilated themselves initially feel euphoria, but soon descend into a morass of depression culminating almost half the time, in suicide. If we use a little common sense… theoretically, if “gender dysphoria” is true, the percentage of the population with the malady would have been stable throughout history. Reasoning that they would have been, at least equally as depressed as they are now and probably more, the suicide rate among those with this mental illness should be at least equal. Yet empirically, we find that the rates of suicide for all reasons today, is far in access of anything we have ever seen in human history. Even when Gays faced real persecution rather than today’s faux persecution.
One cannot argue it is persecution that causes the suicides then. In our modern age, the gay lifestyle is not only accepted by the majority of people, but homosexuals can marry, and get all the benefits that previously were given to people for the express purpose of propagating the species. Almost every television show promotes homosexuality, the schools encourage our children to try it, our culture lionizes it and our government provides funds for people to cut off their private bits. Persecution today is defined, as not wanting to make a wedding cake, while tossing gays from rooftops is ignored. Which tells me, and anyone with an operational mind, that it is not about stopping persecution but undermining reason and attacking the foundations of human society.
Hubris is very destructive, not just to those filled with it, but to everyone. The arrogance to think one can change that which God has ordained is the most destructive kind of hubris. Some parents are even chemically castrating their prepubescent children! What is next, changing dogs to cats, converting goats to humans or lions to sheep? Are we really comfortable living on a planet that has become the island of doctor Moreau? Remember that story? Moreau had the arrogance to surgically transform animals to humans… to the subject’s terrific suffering. Today we have an entire political movement with arrogance that makes Moreau look like an eagle scout! Such arrogance is always based in pride.
Pride goes before the fall, and our culture is filled with false pride, pride built upon the backs and hard work, of our fathers, mothers and grandparents. We had nothing whatsoever to do with the technology we live in, nor the prosperity we enjoy or even the liberty, fleeting as it is, that allows us to be so prideful. We are like the heir who inherits a fortune and believes she deserves it. False pride and arrogance go together like peanut butter and chocolate. It allows the person to believe their own fantasies, yet when those fantasies are challenged, the arrogant pride filled person becomes livid. How can anyone have the audacity to challenge their fantasy?!?
Most of us today live in a total fantasy. Few, other than farmers, truly understand what it takes to keep a single person alive, let alone seven billion. It is that fantasy that we live in that allows us to have such absurd notions. For it is only one far removed from reality that can consider themselves to be greater than God himself. In their fantasy world, the suffering they foist on the human race is the result of anything but their own actions. Only someone living a fantasy life could ignore real persecution while fighting faux persecution with all the gusto of a zealot. My heart breaks for those people who have been sold that bill of goods. I pray for them and my heart goes out to them. They are victims, not of God but of our toxic, godless, arrogant culture. A culture perpetuated to destroy the foundation of our economy, liberty and society in favor of a fantasy. May God heal all people who have fallen for the scam and have mutilated themselves, please Lord, heal them… in body, mind, soul and spirit.
