Exgaywatcher Mike Airhart uses childish strawman against SBC “transgender” resolution
Transgenders (a person who psychologically believe they are the opposite gender) are popping up everywhere. Its almost like someone is growing them on a secret farm in the Colorado mountains. According to statistics, only a miniscule fraction of the population self identify as “transgender”. For context, its about 700k out of 320 million people. But with the mainstream media trumpeting the arrival of the transgender as if it were the second coming of Christ, it gives the false impression that these people are greater than the populations of New York and California combined.
Consequently, the Southern Baptist Convention responded like any caring, compassionate yet, truth-loving Christian organization should respond to the growing push to normalize gender confusion. They passed a comprehensive resolution explaining why social acceptance of any mental abnormality is not compatible with Christian teaching. Christ desires that people live whole lives of abundance therefore its our responsibilities as his followers to refute culture’s anything goes meme.
But Exgaywatch’s Mike Airhart decided to jump off the cliff of rational sanity by responding to the resolution with a poorly used strawman collection. Well, lets be honest, the response is like watching an overweight child in a supermarket throw a full blown tantrum because his mommy wont buy him a six pack of candy bars. A strawman for those who are unaware is very commonly used logical fallacy. It occurs when your opponent intentionally misinterprets, misrepresents or revisions your position in order to construct a false argument that’s easier to refute than your actual one. And then your opponent refutes this false argument which you never actually proposed.
Airhart begins by citing false teacher John Shore to pad his assertions with a layer of legitimacy. After all, if John Shore is opposed to the resolution, then it must be pretty jacked up, right? Necessity has forced the Christian left to create their own cadre of rolodexed “experts” and theologians who exist merely to supply superficial attaboys to gay christian dogma. John Shore is one of those very convenient people.
So to accomplish the mission, Airhart and Shore reword the resolution’s main points, fashioning them into silly, bite-sized memes intended to make their points sound ridiculous.
- Transgender people are crazy
- Transgender people are delusional
- Transgender people are rejecting God’s will
- Transgender people are rejecting God’s plan
- If transgender people would pray more they’d stop being transgender.
- Transgender people should not be protected by law.
- No law should ever in any way validate transgender people.
- It’s immoral for a transgender person to alter their body to reflect their gender identity.
- Children must be protected from the transgender people being normal.
- Hatred from the pulpit against transgender people should be practiced and protected.
- All Christians should actively teach and preach against transgender people
Such a cheap and trite attempt to smear the caring response of the Southern Baptist Convention is sad. Our advice for Mr. Airhart: get up off the floor and stop making a scene. Too much candy is very bad for your teeth and mature minds are needed to help people suffering with gender confusion.
