Facebookers are trained to discern and compote the meaning of any post in nanoseconds. You probably ignored the word compote, as it didn't compute and anything not discoverable in one breath's time is not worth yours.
Are you a Warrior?
Do you defend those offended? Take up fights for the defenseless?
Well and good. Commendable. True religion is taking care of widows and orphans who lack the ability to fend for themselves. So you fend for them.
Was just listening to a program which detailed all the encouragement and support being showered on a person who has changed...gender?
Well, not really changed-at the level of chromosomes, X is still X, Y can't say Y not X?
Until the DNA is configurable, recombinable...artificially altered Alfreds, deep down, are still Freddies, not Fredrikas.
Does pointing this out make me a hateful person?
For disavowing the pretense, by not going along with the gag, should I be subjected to a gag order?
Here's the point. Many people take up arms (figurative-they may hate all weaponry)
to fend, defend someone with whom they share zero common cause. Maybe it's a reflex.
They themselves are quite satisfied with the skin they are in. But they will rush to the defense of someone such as the him/her mentioned above.
Why does that person need defenders? Who is attacking that person?
"Well, no one yet, but..."
So pre-emptive defense...which is actually offense.
"Yeah, BUT...the small-hearted bigots who hate minorities and gays and immigrants and 'other' religions...will not be loving and accepting of a her that had been a him. So pre-emptive or not, I'm on the right (left) side!"
Here where I'm tilling the already turned over sod: Be careful that some 'leaders' of social and political movements do not raise a cash crop by ginning up your emotions.
Don't allow anyone to make money off of your outrage-many politicians (yep-THEM again!) raise money for their campaigns (call it what it is-the financing of their ego trips) by keeping you angry and mis-informed. Truth may set you free, but lies will open your pocketbook.
Why do they attack you through your heart? Because you head knows better, and if they can inflame your emotions, the heart will override the brain and accept any nonsense they care to advance.
Take care of widows and orphans. Share a cup of water, and look out for the best interests of your neighbor. But don't allow anyone to enslave you to their particular movement through your heart. Protect your emotions. Peace, friend.
