An Email Alert
Recently I got an email from a friend pointing me at this link => Urge President Trump to pull LGBT activist nomination. Curious, I did a little investigating. That link is on the American Family Association (AFA)‘s web site. Stopping Chai Feldlbum from serving as the Commissioner of the EEOC is their cause at the moment.
Who is Chai Feldlbum? Well, she is someone Republican Sen. Mike Lee of Utah does not think should be on the EEOC. Trump nominates architect of Obama LGBT policy for another EEOC term provides some background on Feldblum. What is confusing is trying to figure out why Trump renominated Feldblum.
What is the EEOC?
The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) is responsible for enforcing federal laws that make it illegal to discriminate against a job applicant or an employee because of the person’s race, color, religion, sex (including pregnancy, gender identity, and sexual orientation), national origin, age (40 or older), disability or genetic information. It is also illegal to discriminate against a person because the person complained about discrimination, filed a charge of discrimination, or participated in an employment discrimination investigation or lawsuit. (continued here (eeoc.gov))
What is the problem with the EEOC? As we have discovered in recent years, what the Constitution says does not matter as much as our diligence in electing people who will seriously support and defend our God-given rights. When we elect people who think their personal desires trump our God-given rights, what the Constitution actually says doesn’t much matter. Therefore, when we put radical sexual “rights” activists on bodies like the EEOC, we risk losing our right to follow the dictates of our conscience. That’s why we need people like Sen. Mike Lee of Utah to fight the confirmation of radicals like Feldblum.
Consider the difference between gender and sex. Gender is an ephemeral social construct whereas sex is a plainly observable fact of biology. LGBTQ activists insist that everyone must accept their gender choice — what they imagine themselves to be — as some sort of “right” regardless of their actual sex, and Feldblum supports these sorts of “rights”.
The Broader Picture
Are you a Christian? What is your reaction when you read Romans 1:18-32? Because I came so close to being indifferent to God, by professing myself to be wise (Romans 1:22), I am appalled. What if God had completely given me up? Fortunately, God did not give me up. I read the Bible, and I believed the Good Book.
What did I escape? Idol worship. We live in an era defined by a revival of Paganism. As in ancient times, we have changed the glory of the incorruptible God into an image made like corruptible man. However, instead of worshipping birds and four-footed animals and creeping things — appealing to idols made of wood, stone, and metal to give us stuff, pleasure us with sex, make us powerful through the state, and to elevate our self — we directly idolize our stuff, worship sex, adore the state, and esteem our self above all.
How does anyone justify calling the new Paganism wise? I am not certain of Chai Feldlbum‘s excuse or religious beliefs. I just know that the new pagans point to science, the latest iteration of the wisdom of man.
Supposedly, unlike the wisdom of God, the “logic” of science is irrefutable. Since scientists cannot detect God, He must not exist. So we get to decide what is right and what is wrong. Wonderful! Right? No. The “logic” of that proposition is actually so absurd it is funny anyone believes it. God is the Creator. Because He existed before Creation, He is not His Creation. Because we developed science to study to Creation, we cannot use the tools of science to directly study God. We can only use science logically infer the existence of God and the nature of God from what we know of His Creation.
When people point to scientific facts to justify their religious beliefs or their moral behavior, they are using smoke and mirrors to distract us from an inconvenient truth. They have no logical basis for discerning good from evil. They just want what they want. Why then are we suppose to accept what they want over the dictates of our own consciences?
Is the Bible true? Does God exist? Those of us who believe that God exists and the Bible is His Word don’t point to science. We point to logic and reason sustained by faith. We don’t demand you agree, but we will not deny our belief in God just because someone is silly enough to call it unscientific.
Luke 9:23-27 New King James Version (NKJV)
Take Up the Cross and Follow Him
23 Then He said to them all, “If anyone desires to come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross [a]daily, and follow Me. 24 For whoever desires to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for My sake will save it. 25 For what profit is it to a man if he gains the whole world, and is himself destroyed or lost? 26 For whoever is ashamed of Me and My words, of him the Son of Man will be ashamed when He comes in His own glory, and in His Father’s, and of the holy angels. 27 But I tell you truly, there are some standing here who shall not taste death till they see the kingdom of God.”
