The debate over transgender issues—and in particular, medical interventions for transgender children—continues to rage as one of the greatest battles in our nation’s current culture wars.
Now Pres. Biden—in concert with trans-activists—has discovered an unlikely tool with the potential to upend this debate altogether: Religion.
Indeed, the trans movement has vocally emerged as a new religion for the left—with Biden aching to be their priest and pastor.
Along the way, both the president and activists are painting their opponents—which include Florida and its Governor Ron DeSantis—as the enemies of the faith.
Speaking with guest host of The Daily Show, Kal Penn, earlier this week, Biden slammed Florida legislation—which outlaws puberty blockers, hormone treatments, and so-called gender-affirming surgeries for children—as “sinful.”
“What’s going on in Florida is, as my mother would say, ‘close to sinful.’ It’s just terrible what they’re doing,” said Biden before proceeding to call the legislation “cruel.”
Biden has every right to describe Florida’s legislation as “terrible” or “cruel.” These are political arguments, whether folks agree with them or not. But by using the word “sinful,” the president has intentionally crossed over from the political into the religious.
Despite having been denied Communion in recent years because of his pro-abortion stance, Biden presents himself as a devout Catholic. And the word “sinful” clearly holds religious meaning for him.
Which means that according to Biden, Florida’s policy is not just wrong, but a sin — an immoral act in the eyes of God. Or, at least, a god.
Of course, this isn’t the first time leftie politicians have arrogantly used—if not abused—religion to push their own agenda.
There are two reasons why the increasingly anti-religion left has embraced the transgender debate with such religious intensity.
First, it’s human nature to crave the presence of a higher power—whether for guidance or meaning, or both. With the erosion of traditional religion—particularly the Judeo-Christian roots of the Western World—leftism has rushed in to fill the void.
