We Have Become Fools


Take your pick.

In the United States, serious discussion is now going on about whether or not we should allow males who think they are females to use women's bathrooms and shower rooms, and vice versa. This includes allowing students in elementary and secondary schools to make the same choice, depending on which "identity" they choose. If you live in the contemporary West, this conversation is coming to your town soon.

How did we get to this point?

The answer is found in Romans 1:18-32. The contemporary West has gone the way of the ancient Romans, who went the way of the ancient Greeks before them. We (I use the term in a general sense) have "suppressed the truth in unrighteousness" for the past 150 years, and God has now given us over to a way of thinking that can only be described as "futile," "foolish," and "darkened." These are the apostle Paul's terms.

Professing ourselves to be "wise," as the most esteemed thinkers of our age have thought themselves to be (I am referring to the likes of Friedrich Nietzsche, Charles Darwin, William James, John Dewey and Jacque Derrida), we have become fools. 

A new video clip of students being interviewed on the campus of my alma mater, the University of Washington (produced by the Family Policy Institute of Washington), proves the point beyond any shadow of doubt. Among other critical issues, the video addresses the question of whether a 5'9" white man who says he is a 6'5" Chinese woman is wrong─or not. You must see it to believe it.

I think I'll be sending my sheepskin back.

  1. It's the speed of change that is not only staggering but sheds light on how great societies fall or even to some extent how mass murderers rise up and dupe entire nations into thinking gassing, beheading, (and yes, crucifying) innocent citizens is acceptable. Thinking persons ought not to be concerned about Bernie, but rather the crowds. They're made up of the same folks Joseph Backholm is interviewing. We're watching a mob forming, And mobs have amazing track records. Listen to what they are shouting...

  3. Thanks for exposing the ultimate results of a secular education. Sad that many Christian parents don't get it.
