Crazy in Philadelphia?

The headline in The Trumpet reads: “Transgender Indoctrination Rising — Parents—be aware of transgender indoctrination!” It was written by Dennis Leap. Leap manages to combine being unhinged with profound ignorance. Sometimes I refer to the condition as Staverism.

The Trumpet is the organ of the Philadelphia Church of God which is not in Philadelphia (it is domiciled in Edmond Oklahoma). PCOG used to be part of the World Church of God, founded by Herbert W. Armstrong. World Church of God is a cult. Philadelphia Church of God is a cultier cult with some racism thrown in and it has some very weird beliefs other than supposed transgender indoctrination.

I am not going to go through this entire tirade but here is the first paragraph:
Any parent who refuses to recognize that there is a movement to indoctrinate all young children to accept transgenderism is not facing the evidence. The facts show the transgender movement is rapidly growing in acceptance and influence. For parents with elementary-age children, it is already knocking at your child’s door and you may not know it! You should be alarmed, aware and ready to take action to protect your child. Here are shocking news items for you to consider.
I figure that this guy is fearful of something. I am not sure exactly what that is or why it is to be feared. Teaching children not to fear or reject people who are different is pretty basic in terms of child development. It should be even more apparent to a cultist. I also cannot fathom what it is that children need to be protected from. What exactly is the danger? That kids might appreciate people for who they are rather than what they look like?

As for those news items we have:

“Drag Queen Story Hour.” That continues with “Taking Advantage of Innocence.” Suffice it to say that transgender people are not drag queens. A drag queen is an entertainer. Anything that gets kids interested in reading books is a very good thing as far as I am concerned.

Then we have the dependable “Indoctrination at School.” Apparently when children are taught about other kids who might be trans or gender nonconforming they are mortally injured. I can assure the unfortunately named Mr. Leap that it's not contagious. It is also a medically supervised means of mitigating the effects of gender dysphoria. It relieves suffering. It seems to me that it is just common sense to take measures to prevent those kids from being marginalized or ostracized. Those children have done nothing wrong! Ergo, they should not be punished.

This is followed by “Drag Teen Biography.” This is about Jazz Jennings who is not a drag queen. This guy is terribly confused.

What would this diatribe be without citing — as an expert — Michelle Cretella, president of the American College of Pediatricians? I wonder if Mr. Leap realizes that ACpeds is not the real professional peer group. That would be the American Academy of Pediatrics. Cretella is just another idiotic Defender of the Faith which, to her, is more important than the well-being of children.

Towards the end of this silliness, we get this:
There is an even more reliable source to prove that it is impossible for a girl brain to be trapped inside a boy’s body. It is the Holy Bible. “So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them”
Because the Bible has been so accurate with regards to our environment. Or does Mr. Leap believe that the Earth is at the center of the universe around which everything (including the sun) orbits? Maybe he does believe that. Who knows?
