Albert Mohler: The Delusion Destroying Women’s Sports

News reports came out last week that the transgender athlete Rachel McKinnon has, for the second year in a row, won the women’s bicycling championships in Manchester, England.

McKinnon is a biological male competing as a female. That has left some female athletes upset.

McKinnon pushed back in a statement we should listen to closely:

“All my medical records say, female. My doctor treats me as a female person. My racing license says female, but people who oppose my existence still want to think of me as male. So, if we want to say that I believe you’re a woman for all of society except for this massive central part that is sport, then that’s not fair.”

McKinnon has a point.

If people offer the delusion that a biological male is a female in other dimensions, it’s inconsistent to deny that same designation in sport.

We’re watching a secularizing world mired in inconsistency, and whenever that inconsistency is pointed out, it’s our responsibility to see it for what it is. But this is where Christians also have to recognize that the last thing we should hope for in this world is for the world to be even more consistently wrong.

Michael Medved: Bias and Blindness in the Prestige Press

On the day after the bold and successful American raid that killed the world’s most-wanted terrorist, the Washington Post ran an instantly infamous headline: “Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, Austere Religious Scholar at the Helm of Islamic State, Dies at 48.”

The obituary featured a deceptively genial photo of the purported “religious scholar,” resembling a kindly Islamic Santa Claus, and the headline gave no hint that his death, like his life, had been unspeakably violent—pursued by American raiders, he exploded a suicide vest that also claimed three children.

The Post later changed the headline to read “Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, Extremist Leader of Islamic State, Dies at 48,” but the term “extremist” still fails to capture the hideous cruelty of prolonged torture, mass rape, enslavement and genocidal murder associated with this unlamented monster.

On occasion, significant slip-ups make the bias and blindness of the nation’s prestige press not just obvious, but undeniable.

Lanhee Chen: The Single-Item Agenda of the Democrats: Impeachment

The Democrats seem to have an impeachment problem.

Recent polling from The New York Times and Siena college shows that in six swing states that President Trump won in 2016, registered voters generally support the impeachment inquiry, but oppose impeaching the President and removing him from office, by a margin of 53 to 43 percent.

So, the more Democrats pursue the impeachment of President Trump, the more it seems to work against them. That’s because this pursuit seems to come at the expense of progress on the issues voters actually care about, like jobs, the state of the economy, and keeping our communities and country safe. Historically, it’s been these issues that have a greater impact on the outcome of elections.

Nancy Pelosi has boasted that Democrats can walk and chew gum at the same time—in other words, pursue both impeachment and progress on the pocketbook issues that Americans care about. But in watching them recently, you have to wonder if that’s really true.

Owen Strachan: Child Victims of the Sexual Revolution

An uproar has broken out over a Texas custody battle involving Jeffrey Younger. He’s the father of a seven-year-old boy named James. James’s mother has enrolled him in school as a girl. She told him for years that he is a girl because he said he once liked a toy meant for girls. Now she wants to put him on puberty blockers and is pursuing a future “transition” to girlhood for James.

Jeffrey Younger is fighting the case in court and was just granted some say. He and his ex-wife will have joint conservatorship over James.

Do not be confused: we’re in the midst of a gender revolution — change that — children are in the midst of a gender revolution.

We should stand against the gender transitions of children.

We should speak truth. And we should protect children from life-altering treatments.

This is madness.

We cannot be silent.
