Albert Mohler: The AP Stylebook Joins The Sexual And Moral Revolution

Billy Graham

The Associated Press Stylebook has decided to join the sexual and moral revolution, and it’s going to war with human nature.

The new guidelines instruct that writers and editors, for example, should “avoid references to being born a boy or girl.”

It is a victory for common sense. It is an affirmation of basic human sanity (Center for Public Theology).  The transgender formerly known as Bruce is not happy (CNN).  Meanwhile, from Michael Brown:  What do Anderson Cooper, Don Lemon, George Takei, and Milo Yiannopoulos have in common? They are all out and proud gay men, and they were all sexually abused as underage minors. Sadly, this is an extremely common occurrence, as there is frequently a connection between childhood sexual abuse and adult homosexuality (Townhall).
