This is not breaking news, but I wanted to share Chuck Colson’s commentary on the situation. You can read it in its entirety here by clicking here.
I’ve written in the past about the Girl Scout’s support of Planned Parenthood and sexual immorality (see What are the Girl Scouts Supporting?, The Girl Scouts Deny the Allegations, and If it Seems Like I’m Picking on the Girl Scouts…) but the Girl Scouts of Colorado have now taken it to a new low. They allow those who claim to be “transgender” to join the GIRL scouts.
The last time I checked, there is a biological definition of the words BOY and GIRL. It would have to do with how we’re physically made. But more importantly, it would have to do with created order and how God created and continues to create human life. Being a boy or a girl has little to do with how we FEEL.
From Colson’s commentary:
So apparently gender is based more on feelings and decisions rather than an unfair, arbitrary thing like anatomy or the science of biology. The dictionary, which defines “male” as being: “Of, relating to, or being the sex that has organs to produce sperm for fertilizing ova.” A secondary definition of “male” says “masculine.”
Such facts mean nothing amid today’s moral confusion.
Now, let me say that I’m not criticizing Bobby. I don’t know him, his home life, or anything about him other than what has been reported in the media. We all face challenges, and this is a real big one. But if Bobby can’t get clear guidance and help from his own family, not to mention society as a whole, he will likely face a lifetime of devastation.
Such help needs to begin by simply remembering that there is a moral as well as physical order to the universe. It’s inscribed on all creation. The Christian worldview clearly embraces an objective moral order, and living by this is the way to human flourishing.
A basic building block of the Christian worldview is found in Genesis chapter 1: “So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them.”
And yet, the Girl Scouts decided it was okay to accept a BOY into the Girl Scouts because the boy’s parents have been allowing him to live his life as a girl. This just falls neatly into their ungodly agenda to rid all vestiges of God and Christian faith from this world.
Think about that the next time you buy cookies and what that organization you are supporting wants to do to your daughters.
