Right to Life considers it important that our supporters are aware of the following developments in the United States. While not directly relating to our core issues we believe that it vital that those who support the sanctity of life arising from men and women being made in the Imago Dei, (image of God), are aware of the utter madness now arising from the long march of the LGBT powers through the institutions of government.
the United States House of Representatives has just made a House Resolution that has to do with a set of rules that the House, in the 117th Congress has established for itself. The Democrats are now in the majoriy with Speaker Nancy Pelosi at the helm. The Democratically controlled House Rules Committee has initiated the following as proposed changes to the language of United States laws. These laws relate to the following proposed changes in terms of gender inclusive language. Frankly we are shocked.
Here are the changes exactly as found in the House Resolution: “In clause 8(c)(3) of rule XXIII, strike, ‘father, mother, son, daughter, brother, sister, uncle, aunt, first cousin, nephew, niece, husband, wife, father-in-law, mother-in-law, son-in-law, daughter-in-law, brother-in-law, sister-in-law, step-father, step-mother, step-son, step-daughter, step-brother, step-sister, half-brother, half sister, grandson or granddaughter,’ and insert ‘parent, child, sibling, parent’s sibling, first cousin, sibling’s child, spouse, parent-in-law, child-in-law, sibling-in-law, step-parent, step-child, step-sibling, half-sibling or grandchild.'”
Gender-specific language or the nouns that make the world make sense, such as mother, son, daughter, brother, sister, husband, father-in-law, mother-in-law, you go down the list are now to be verbotten.
There will be no more brothers and sisters in the United States, only siblings. There will be no more mothers and fathers in the United States, only parents. There will be no more aunts, no more uncles. There are not even going to be anymore half-sisters or half-brothers nor grandsons or granddaughters. Instead, merely those who are step-siblings, half-siblings or grand children
In clause 4 of rule XXVII, “strike ‘himself or herself’ and insert ‘themself.'”
It’s a disaster. It’s a disaster for the English language, but more than that, it’s, as Christians understand, a disaster far beyond language, because language is not merely about language. Language is about the construction of reality. It is about how we define terms. And we have to understand that what the Democratic majority in the House has done and what the new Democratic majority in the Senate may do is not going to change nature, but it is going to set our nation’s official discourse at war with nature. This is the demand of the LGBTQ revolutionaries and with the left wing of the Democratic party in control of that party, they’re not about to refuse whatever these revolutionaries demand. And this is where Christians just have to underline again, that a pronoun is never merely a pronoun. It’s a way of indicating reality.
When it comes to human beings, it’s about defining the human person and the new radical ideal of personal autonomy has now suggested to many modern secular Americans that they can define themselves. But if you give in to the language, you are redefining the reality. Reality itself is not changed, a male is still a male and a female is still a female. BUT this is more than just a word game. Ideas have consequences and bad ideas have victims. What we are looking at here is a very bad idea indeed. Look to it having devastating consequences down the line.
How soon will New Zealand follow down this rabbit hole of madness. If the trend we have seen in our country following the warped LGBT ideologies that are now metasatsing throughout the western world and with our progressive leader so enamoured with such ideas, surely we will not have to wait long before we find our laws being unyoked from natural law and we find our grasp on reality unravelling faster than a runaway toilet roll.
