Gender – California Bathroom Bill

California’s State Assembly Education Committee recently approved bill AB 1266, also known as the Bathroom Bill.

It essentially allows boys to use girls’ restroom and vice-versa–if they happen to identify with that particular gender. The standard, then, for whichever restroom a student wants to use is gender identification.

Here’s an excerpt from the bill:

“A pupil shall be permitted to participate in sex-segregated school programs, activities, and facilities, including athletic teams and competitions, consistent with his or her gender identity, irrespective of the gender listed on the pupil’s records”

Not only will this affect visits to the restroom, it will also affect team sports. Imagine having a team of gender confused teenage boys on an all girl’s water polo team.

The other team wouldn’t stand a chance—unless, of course, they stocked their girl’s team with gender confused boys as well.

But sports are the least of our problems.

The idea that all sins are the same in simply not true. It is not practically true, and it’s not Biblically true. In the Old Testament, there were various words used to describe sin. The strongest of these adjectives are translated into one of two words:

‘Abomination’ or ‘detestable’

These words generally refer to the worshiping of other gods and the breakdown of gender roles.

Consider these verses:

“’You shall not lie with a male as one lies with a female; it is an abomination” Leviticus 18:22 NAU

“A woman shall not wear man’s clothing, nor shall a man put on a woman’s clothing; for whoever does these things is an abomination to the LORD your God” Deuteronomy 22:5 NAU

Why is this so important to God?

The community is the foundation of the nation
The church is the foundation of the community
The family is the foundation of the church
The marriage is the foundation of the family
The gender role is the foundation of the marriage

Everything rises and falls on the family.
Without clear genders roles, there is no family.

Bills such as AB1266 represent the continued breakdown of the family and therefore our nation.
