Many evangelical leaders are expressing their concerns over the circumstances surrounding a 6-year-old boy who’s being compelled by his mother to identify as a girl.
Recently, it was reported that a Texas man named Jeff Younger, who objects to his ex-wife pushing their 6-year-old son, James, into identifying as a girl, was in danger of losing custody of him after he was accused of “abusive behavior.”
The charge of abusive behavior reportedly stemmed from his engaging in “non-affirming actions” with James, namely treating his son like a boy by cutting his hair short and having him wear boys’ clothes.
Mohler, president of The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Louisville, Kentucky, described the custody battle and the possibility of James being forced to undergo gender transition as “a truly scary story.”
“At the base, the story is about the very lie of the transgender revolutionaries who want to tell us that when you’re talking about a 6-year-old boy, who at least at times at his mother’s house takes on the identity of a girl named Luna, we are told that we are to abandon all concern,” said Mohler.
“We are to throw away all restraint and under the demands of the new sexual revolutionaries, we are to celebrate this transition and declare that it must be so simply because in every case presented along these lines, it must be so.”
Mohler added that he believed this showed that “the new mandate” is that “transgender identity wins over everything else including all reason.”
A website named “Save James” was set up by people identifying themselves as friends of Jeff Younger, with them calling for prayer, awareness and action.
“If you are moved by concern to support or take action in some way, I ask that you write our lawmakers and representatives about the great need for the protection of our children,” reads an entry on the site.
