The United States of America was only able to form as the signers of the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, and a majority of the citizens in the 13 states, were Christians or at least sympathetic to the advantages and privileges included in the liberties set forth in the faith’s basic teachings.
As recorded in the Declaration of Independence,
“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. — That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed,”
Without common beliefs, the states could not have formed as the Constitutional Republic.
Today, with the rapid changes taking place in certain “blue states”, the core differences between them and the “red states”, are now tearing the nation apart.
Republican lawmakers nationwide have had to mobilize to fight against well-funded LGBTQ activists’ attempts to implement hyper sex ed (grooming) into the public schools.
Oklahoma’s GOP governor this week staked out new territory in the growing culture war: birth certificates.
On Tuesday, Gov. Kevin Stitt signed a bill prohibiting nonbinary gender markers on birth certificates, making them the only state, so far, to stop the expansion of genders on them.
In direct conflict with human biology and Biblical teachings, nonbinary is “used to describe someone whose gender identity can’t be described as exclusively woman or man.”
Stitt in November issued an executive order to prohibit trans residents from changing the gender on their birth certificates, which are also used to secure other forms of identification.
Republican backers describe the new rules as reflecting their religious beliefs, arguing that gender is binary and immutable. “I believe that people are created by God to be male or female,” Stitt said when he issued the executive order. “There is no such thing as nonbinary sex.”
In Oklahoma, residents could previously change their gender on birth certificates by getting a court order. But Republicans objected last year when an Oklahoma-born Oregon resident won a court order for the state health department to issue a new birth certificate with a nonbinary designation.
Stitt blocked compliance with the settlement agreement, issuing his executive order while asking the legislature to introduce a bill to create a legal ban. Oklahoma Sen. Micheal Bergstrom (R), the bill’s Senate sponsor, and Rep. Sheila Dills (R), the House sponsor, echoed Stitt’s rationale for banning the practice.
″We want clarity and truth on official state documents,” Dills said in a statement. “Information should be based on established medical fact and not an ever-changing social dialogue.”
“The question before us is very simple. Do we want the truth on a birth certificate, a legal document, representing a person’s biological sex, or do we want a lie?” Dills said in a statement, adding that “my truth is based on my faith and science.”
Bergstrom added: “We must stand up and put a stop to this nonsense regarding biological sex. It’s not a complicated issue — biologically, you’re either a male or female. There should be no other option to choose from on a birth certificate.”
The GOP-controlled Oklahoma House and Senate passed the bill.
According to a study by UCLA’s Williams Institute, about 0.6 percent of adults and 0.7 percent of youth identify as transgender, which includes a nonbinary designation.
