Albert Mohler: The Revolution Moves Past Martina Navratilova

Martina Navratilova is a name familiar to the nation as the as the winner Wimbledon Women’s Singles title nine times, but she’s in the headlines today because she’s a gay athlete who is now accused of running headlong in conflict with the moral revolutionaries.

No: It’s not about gay rights, but over transgender identity and modern sport.

Late last year Navratilova got in trouble by tweeting, “You can’t just proclaim yourself a female and be able to compete against women.”

After a major backlash, she says she went back to consider the issue, to make sure that she really understood what she was talking about. Now she’s published a piece in the Sunday Times of London—“The Rules on Trans Athletes Reward Cheats and Punish the Innocent.”

She writes: “As I have gone into this with further detail and with further research I believe in my position even more strongly.”

But the revolution has moved past her, and the LGBTQ activists now say she’s on the wrong side of history.

Albert Mohler: Don’t Say You Were Not Warned


The sexual revolution is marching onward—this time in California’s new curricular framework for public education, as they draft a new curriculum for the public schools.

I downloaded all 1,000 pages—and I can simply say, there’s a lot to be concerned about here.

Just consider the guidelines on gender for 3rd graders: Gender is described as “boy, girl, both, neither, trans, genderqueer, non-binary, gender fluid, gender neutral, transgender, agender, neutrois, bigender, third gender, two spirit ….” and so it goes.

We also have lesson plans on reproductive organs and the argument that they do not necessarily correspond to male and female.

You can imagine where this jumps when you’re talking about high school students.

One more dimension I should note, briefly: Parents, in the document, are clearly considered more likely to be the problem than the solution.

Don’t say you weren’t warned.

Albert Mohler: Understanding the Rise in Claims of Transgender Identity


Could the transgender revolution really be fueled by a social dimension?—a social contagion?

That’s what a current—and now very controversial—peer-reviewed study has found. The headline from the Economist in London was this, “Why are so many teenage girls appearing in gender clinics?”

The author of the academic study discovered that there is a clear social dimension, a contagion of what’s called gender dysphoria, particularly among adolescent girls and young women.

So: What does it mean?

It means the recent spike in transgender identity may be attributable in large measure to the influence of other young women in the same place at the same time within a definable set of relationships or going to similar places on the internet.

You may have sensed this already by observation and intuition.

Now: The academic research supports it.

Albert Mohler: The Moral Vacuity of Our Cultural Elites


New York Magazine recently published an article entitled “180 Minutes with Desmond is Amazing. He’s a ten year old drag performer and he’s cooler than you.”

This was accompanied by a full page photograph of a ten year old boy dressed out in drag; a photograph that under any other circumstance would likely be identified as skirting right up to the limit of child pornography.

The “cultural elites” behind such messaging are not just trying to change moral beliefs, they are trying to transform moral instincts at an even more basic level.

New York Magazine wants you to know that this ten year old drag entertainer, ‘Desmond is Amazing,’ is cooler than you, but in this context ‘amazing’ and ‘cool’ are two words that show the complete moral insanity of a society.

Albert Mohler: Turning the Civil Rights Act on Its Head


Last week, the Sixth US Circuit Court of Appeals unanimously ruled that Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 covers transgender persons even though they do not appear in the legislation.

The opinion was written by Circuit Judge Karen Nelson Moore who writes—and I quote: “the funeral home fired the employee because she refused to abide by her employer’s stereotypical conception of her sex.”

That ruling means that there is now no determinate meaning to sex or gender in the United States of America.

This is a direct threat to religious liberty because the Sixth Circuit said that the Religious Freedom Restoration Act has no bearing on this employment question whatsoever.

The moral revolution has but one great barrier to its complete victory: that barrier is religious conviction.

Watch closely.
