I think I receive surprisingly little negative feedback about being transgender. Yesterday though, for some reason, my post about Ava Glasscott being named a parade Marshall for Boston Pride fired up a religious right person here on my WordPress blog. (I write two blogs, one on another platform.)
Here is the verse, which I guess pertains to me too:
“The woman shall not wear that which pertaineth unto a man, neither shall a man put on a woman’s garment: for all that do so are abomination unto the LORD thy God.”
1 John 2:16
“For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world.”
Without becoming too religious, I am not a Biblical scholar. the Bible to me has always been a wonderful history book full of contradictions. Search close enough and you can find a phrase or two to contradict other verses.
And, what about following the simple all forgiving work of Jesus which a few of today’s so called Christians have seemingly forgotten.
