And really - what exactly is this supposed to be?
As I said back in March, I'm so sick of these stories. And given the fact that I'm the top comment, I'm not the only one. We are a minority, but we're a minority that stubbornly refuses to go away.
We are a stubborn minority that refuses to enable our children to navigate an already confusing, misshapen world by promoting MORE confusion and celebrating the deviance from basic, unalterable facts about themselves. For as much as the liberal world likes to make fun of Catholicism for not caring about science (read: blatant ignorance), these same folks love to throw science out the window when it comes to sex and gender.
This has nothing to do with boys wanting to play with dolls or girls wanting to drive a race car. This has everything to do with the concerted effort of a very liberal media working towards a genderless, sexless utopia in which traditional families are trampled so that the morals and dignity reflected by our very existence no longer call them to better.
The traditional family might not be a perfect reflection, but we're not called to be exactly perfect. We are, however, called to be reflections of He who created us, and we're called to teach our children to be reflections of He who created us. No matter how much folks try to ignore this, hide this, or confuse this reality, there will always be those of us who stand in staunch defense of that which we are blessed to know: We are created in the image and likeness of God.
And guess what else? I'm not afraid to call Him God, either.
