'God is transgender?' pastor and congressional candidate asks after Biden video

In a video released last week, President Joe Biden stated, referring to transgender people, “Our entire administration sees you for who you are: made in the image of God.” This is fine as an acknowledgment that all humans are equal in God's eyes. But Biden's really just using an appeal to religion to justify the normalization of an abnormal form of gender dysphoria.

All of God's creatures deserve compassion. That doesn't just mean accepting people as they are. It also means urging people with serious vices to change and people with serious conditions to get help. It is not compassionate to legitimize as normal what is in fact harmful.

Willie Montague, a pastor and a congressional candidate in Florida’s 10th Congressional District, had a few comments on this. "When someone struggles with gender dysphoria, we are to love them and help them,” Montague said. “But the Left’s new attempt to normalize and promote critical gender ideology has no scriptural basis and is corrosive to our society. Like most things Biden says, this is hard to decode. By saying ‘transgenders’ are made in the image of God, is he stating that God is transgender? More foolishness from this doctrinally illiterate president.”

Montague referenced Genesis 1:27 when discussing Biden’s statement. It’s a biblical passage that shows Biden is wrong. It states, “So God created mankind in his own image, in the image of God he created them; male and female he created them.”

Another biblical passage referencing God’s creation of humans is Matthew 19:4. “He answered, 'Have you not read that He who created them from the beginning made them male and female.'”

Mark 10:6 states, “But from the beginning of creation, ‘God made them male and female.’”

And perhaps one of the best-known biblical verses that rebuff Biden’s statement is Genesis 1:28. “And God blessed them. And God said to them, ‘Be fruitful and multiply and fill the earth and subdue it and have dominion over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the heavens and over every living thing that moves on the earth.’”

Clearly, the gender propaganda coming from this administration doesn’t comport with just about anything in the Bible, which includes condemnations of homosexuality in both the Old and New Testaments.

Biden can be as supportive of transgender people as he wants to be. But using God’s name to legitimize transgender people is just another lie about the human person. It shows that Biden will sink so low by using religion as a manipulation tool.

Biological sex is real — science and the Bible are in agreement here.
