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.

Albert Mohler: An Earthquake at CNN’s Equality Town Hall

CNN’s recent Equality Town Hall was an earthquake—morally, politically, and culturally.

In case you missed it: When Beto O’Rourke was asked if he would strip the tax exemption from religious organizations that hold what he considers to be the wrong view of marriage, he responded with an unequivocal and unconditional “yes.”

Shortly after that, Beto O’Rourke then tweeted his own statement, making clear he was proud of it.

Some on the left were extremely troubled, not because they disagreed with him, but because he let the cat out of the bag.

Michael McGough, senior editorial writer for The Los Angeles Times, ran a piece with the headline, “Beto O’Rourke’s ‘church tax’ idea plays into conservative paranoia about same-sex marriage.”

Conservative paranoia?

Conservative evangelicals are now called “paranoid” for listening to the words actually spoken by those who are running for president, and being concerned about those words.

That’s not paranoia.

That’s called reality.

Albert Mohler: A Landmark Day for the English Language

It was a landmark day for the English Language.

Last week, Merriam Webster added the singular, genderless word “they” to their online dictionary—a change that will be reflected in subsequent editions of the hard copies of their dictionary as well.

Merriam Webster is the oldest publisher of dictionaries in the United States. It’s had wide influence. This is more than a simply symbolic act—and Merriam-Webster understands that.

But here’s the question: How long will this current definition or this newly added definition last? How long will it be before ‘he’ and ‘she’ or ‘his’ and ‘hers’ are re-spelled—or simply disappear?

I’m going to make a prediction right now. The gender and sexual revolutionaries will not be satisfied with the singular “they.”

And that’s why this is so important: If you can control the language, if you can change the language … you will control and you will change the direction of the culture.

Albert Mohler: Planned Parenthood’s Priorities Revealed

Planned Parenthood has announced that the organization is pulling out of the federally-funded Title X programs.

It’s a move that will cost the nation’s largest abortion provider over $280 million a year. It comes after months of speculation that they would withdraw from Title X in response to a change in policy from the Trump administration—an effort on the part of the administration to reduce or eliminate federal funding for abortion and abortion providers.

What that means is that Planned Parenthood is so ardently, adamantly, obsessively committed to abortion that the organization is actively going to forego millions and millions of dollars of taxpayer funding for contraception and other family planning services provided under Title X, in order to prove its deadly commitment to abortion, above all.

Planned Parenthood has finally, honestly, made very clear what its real priorities are, as if we had any doubt. Its first priority is abortion.

And now we know.

Albert Mohler: California Curriculum Proposes Rewrite of History

The state of California is now considering an ethnic studies curriculum for the public schools—and we should all take notice.

For decades, California has had an outsize influence on such things as curriculum and textbooks because if a textbook is adopted in California, it’s likely also to be adopted elsewhere.

I knew this proposed curriculum would be bad. But it’s even worse than I imagined.

Capitalism is presented as racist.

The English language is re-tooled. The word “history,” for example, is abandoned because it contains the oppressive word “his”—which is too rigid, representing a “gender binarist” approach to telling history.

Academic disciplines are turned upside down and inside out.

The proposed curriculum itself makes it very clear what the objective is: the absolute social transformation of the United States.

In essence, we’re looking at not only a new curriculum, but the rewriting of history, and a redefining of reality.

Albert Mohler: Crisis in the Human Heart

One of the most important and helpful statements made in the aftermath of the recent horrific mass shootings came by way of the Editorial Board of The Wall Street Journal.

The article is entitled, “The Killers in Our Midst.” The shootings, they write: “are horrifying assaults on peaceful communities by disturbed young men. American politics will try to simplify these events into a debate about guns or political rhetoric, but the common theme of these killings is the social alienation of young men that will be harder to address.”

They point to the fact that this is not a new reality, it is not a reality now that spans several presidential administrations, including presidents of both parties. The motivations of the killers, they observe, are “often too convoluted to sort into any clear ideology.”

So what we’re facing is a cultural crisis, a spiritual crisis, and it begins, as we know, in the human heart.
