Our friends over at Liberty Council ("Restoring the Culture by Advancing Religious Freedom...", or so they say) are severely annoyed. It seems the U.S. State Department has decided to recognize transgendered individuals by changing their passport to reflect the reality of their gender change.
It makes sense to me. A guy walks up to some customs inspector in a third-world country, and his passport says he's a woman? Or vice versa? That makes no sense, and only invites problems, discrimination and persecution.
But Matt Barber at Liberty Council feels the passport change reflects support for a 'gay' agenda! Not only that, Matt has the right solution: cure these homosexuals of their gender confusion.
"What these people need is to be steered to counseling where they can be counseled in such a way that their false gender identity comes into line with their gender reality."In other words, these people are sick and need to be cured, brought back to the gender that God gave them. Of course, if one follows that argument, it seems God also gave these people the desire to be the other sex...
People like Barber are the ones who need counseling. Their philosophy is both immoral and scientifically bankrupt. They need to look in the mirror and ask themselves why they're so afraid of letting other people lead their own lives, why they feel that they have a right to dictate morality to everyone else.
