Democratic Presidential candidate Joe Biden’s personal foundation launched a Pro-LGBTQ campaign which promoted the stories of an 18-month old “gender nonconforming”child and other transgender children.
The 2018 initiative, called the “As You Are” campaign, centred on a map tracking LGBTQ “acceptance stories” across the country. It was spearheaded by Biden’s eponymous foundation, which has been described as “further[ing] the work the Bidens did over eight years in the Obama administration and cement[ing] the former vice president’s more than four-decade legacy in public life.”
Of the nearly 500 individuals highlighted, many were children under the age of 18, with one account even chronicling a “gender nonconforming” 18-month-old.
One mother submitted her story to the Biden Foundation about her six-year-old transgender child and saw it promoted by the group, despite declaring her daughter “gender nonconforming” since 18-months-old:
What’s more, the Biden Foundation produced exclusive video content to positively chronicle the story of a child who transitioned genders. The video was later promoted across the foundation’s social media platforms.
While the transgender individual’s –”Rio” – exact age is not included in the video, pictures of the child clearly reveal her young age.
In light of the former veep’s presidential campaign, the foundation ceased operations, but its pro-transgender messages for children remain harmful.
Not only does the messaging pushed by the Biden foundation perpetuate radical, far-left narratives about gender, it also okays subjecting children to permanently life-altering surgeries which many ultimately come to regret.
HD Editors Note: Why Is This News Biblically Relevant?
We live in a world where children are continually in peril. Right from the womb, children’s lives are in danger, and after they are born, they are pushed into sin as quickly as possible. Adults (parents, politicians, teachers, entertainers, etc.) in this generation promote homosexuality, transgenderism, sexual immorality, feminism, abortion, meanwhile condemning the Bible, Christians, Purity, and obedience to God.
The preconditioning of children to sin is also something that the Bible does not treat lightly:
Matthew 18:6 KJV – “But whoso shall offend [cause to sin/stumble] one of these little ones which believe in me, it were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and that he were drowned in the depth of the sea.”
Hal Lindsey in his article, “When Confusion Reigns” explained that the society has plunged children into a life of sin and confusion through the promotion of the Transgender lifestyle:
1 Corinthians 14:33 gives a profound and insightful statement. “God is not a God of confusion but of peace.”
Yet in much of the world right now, confusion reigns. I mean deep, basic levels of confusion. Perhaps the most obvious would be the millions who are confused about their sexual identity. The science of gender no longer holds. It’s not a question of XX or XY chromosomes, or any of the other obvious scientific differences between male and female. It’s all about feelings, and those feelings have been purposely confused by educators, entertainers, advertisers, and others.
Good is called evil and evil good. Followers of Jesus are increasingly seen as dangerous to children.
Acceptance and affirmation have not helped at all. Why not? Because the guilt is not external. It comes with the sin itself — not just homosexual sin, but all sin. Society pushes heterosexual children to have the sexual morals of rabbits, but society’s affirmation of sin does not stop the guilt. That’s because the guilt didn’t start with society. It started with the sin.
As people abandon the biblical definition of right and wrong, are they feeling more free? Are they doing better psychologically? No. They’re doing worse. America and most other First World countries are experiencing a mental health crisis.
Romans chapter one sounds the warning to societies that intentionally turn away from God. Verse 28 sums it up. “As they did not see fit to acknowledge God any longer, God gave them over to a depraved mind.”
Depravity of mind goes far beyond mental illness. And I’m not condemning people for being sick. The condemnation goes to the society itself. Romans 1:21-22 says, “For even though they knew God, they did not honor Him as God, or give thanks; but they became futile in their speculations, and their foolish heart was darkened. Professing to be wise, they became fools.”
In these perilous times, we see a 2 Timothy 3:1-9 humanity doubling down on influencing our next generation. Our youths are being targeted on all fronts. At the expense of our children’s innocence, a godless agenda is being propagated with increasing intensity…
