Unfortunately, all too often, if you want a glimpse of the dark and dystopian future looming on the horizon in America unless there is another great spiritual awakening, look north to Canada or across the pond to England. Once again, this has proven to be all too true.
The Supreme Court of British Columbia has ordered that a 14-year-old girl receive testosterone injections without parental consent and over parental objection, according to The Federalist. The court further decreed that if either of her parents referred to her using female pronouns or called her by her given birthname, they would be charged with “family violence.”
When this young lady was 13, her school counselor encouraged her to identify as a boy even though she is biologically a girl, and she began taking testosterone injections at 13. Her father objected, believing that her gender dysphoria was more a mental health issue than a biological one. He also believes she should wait until she is older before she began to undergo such irreversible medical treatments.
The court ruled that the 14-year-old daughter was free to begin treatments and continue with them. Her father has appealed to the Canadian Supreme Court. While the case is on appeal, his 14-year-old daughter has started hormone treatments.
Much farther down the road in its post-Christian decline than either Canada or the United States is Great Britain. The latest horror story there? A primary school in Birmingham, England, was teaching children as young as 4 years old about LGBT lifestyles. The brainwashing propaganda was in a curriculum known as “No Outsiders” with children’s books titled “King & King” and “Mommy, Momma and Me.”
The assistant headmaster, Andrew Moffat, who is a homosexual, designed the programs and said the curriculum was “preparing children for modern Britain,” The Christian Post reports. The program has been temporarily suspended after hundreds of parents, many of them Muslims, complained that the curriculum was undermining parental rights and aggressively promoting homosexuality.
A mother of students at the school, Fatima Shah, told the BBC that what was being taught is “promoting homosexuality” and “confusing children.” She explained, “Children are coming home, girls are asking whether it is true they can be boys, boys as young as 4 asking whether it is true we can be girls. There is no need for it.”
The suspension may be only a temporary victory, however. The United Kingdom’s Department for Education is fully behind this kind of emotional and spiritual child abuse and violation of parental rights and has announced that starting in 2020 such curricula will be in all state schools and will be mandatory.
Under these guidelines, school officials can “overrule” parents who would like to opt their children out of such sex education classes. The guidelines apparently also prod the teachers to encourage children to challenge their parents’ religious beliefs about homosexuality. This is a clear violation of parental rights, and it is emotional and spiritual child abuse of young children.
What happens in Great Britain today happens in America in the near future. Great Britain is the proverbial “canary in the coal mine.” Miners took canaries down into the mineshaft with them. If the canary died, they knew deadly poisonous gas had filled the shaft, even though it didn’t have any aroma. Miners would have to evacuate immediately or die.
In America, we must be very vigilant to stop similar efforts when they appear in our society. Know that there are increasingly radical efforts by members of the LGBTQ community who are trying to coerce parents into having children brainwashed about LBGTQ issues at wildly inappropriate ages.
If you think this is not where the LGBTQ community of activists and radicals want to take America, then you are a human ostrich with your head buried in the sand. This is the future unless we as Christians stand up and call upon God to send a great revival, as well as pray for spiritual awakening and reformation, and that God intervenes to save us all, and especially our children, from this dark future.
