The Unholy Lie of ‘Transgender Day of Visibility’

Many greeted Biden’s proclamation with outrage, and that was just, but we grieved over the destructive lies told to struggling people.

“So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them.” —Genesis 1:27

Whether or not you subscribe to the biblical account of creation, that sentence says something that humanity has understood for all of its history until a few short years ago — that there are two sexes, male and female.

Yesterday was Easter, Resurrection Day, the holiest day on the Christian calendar. It’s the day on which we celebrate the resurrection of Jesus Christ. God saw all of humanity, the bearers of His own image, condemned by sin and destined for hell. He gave His Son Jesus as the final sacrifice for that sin and redeemed for Himself people who believe through Christ’s death and resurrection. Every single human throughout history was visible to Him that day and every day.

Christ died to pay for sin, not to celebrate it. To borrow a favorite word of the Left, He came to heal the marginalized, not to leave them unchanged. That makes yesterday also tragic, as people who ungratefully reject God’s created order celebrated “Transgender Visibility Day.” As if this tiny fraction of the population isn’t already the most “visible” — in your face — segment in the country.

Joe Biden, supposedly a good Catholic, welcomed the day by trying to score political points. “Today, on Transgender Day of Visibility, I have a simple message to all trans Americans: I see you,” said whoever posts on X for him. “You are made in the image of God, and you’re worthy of respect and dignity.”

His official proclamation went on at length about the travails of this small group of people before concluding with the typical proclamation language that was especially jarring this time: “in the year of our Lord.”

Speaking of our Lord, many left-wing churches gleefully sullied Easter celebrations by reveling in the particularly destructive mental illness and sin of “transgenderism.” So did countless politicians and corporate types.

All of this trumpeting of the day was greeted with a lot of justifiable outrage. Yet Jesus Himself warned of this: “If the world hates you, know that it has hated me before it hated you.” Christians ought not to celebrate such hatred and disrespect, but we ought not to be surprised by it either. In fact, Jesus’s disciples “rejoic[ed] that they were counted worthy to suffer dishonor for the name.”

The irony (especially during Holy Week) is that the worst betrayal persecution sometimes comes from those on the inside. Biden is supposed to be Christian, as are the supposed churches that mock God’s design. “I know your deeds,” Jesus said in Revelation 3:1. “You have a reputation of being alive, but you are dead.”

Biden didn’t come up with Transgender Day of Visibility or plan for it to coincide with Easter.

(Side note: The Washington Post’s obnoxious headline read, “Trump attacks Biden over Easter coinciding with Transgender Day of Visibility.” That’s some industrial-grade spin right there.)

A radical trans activist and therapist concocted the day 15 years ago after cross-dressing and leaving his wife. He chose March 31 to set it apart from Transgender Day of Remembrance in November and Pride Month in June. Yes, that’s right — he had to carefully place the date to avoid running up against all the other days in the LGBTQ+ Gender Confusion Celebration Calendar, which has ballooned even further since then. He also surely knew March 31 would eventually land on Christian holy days.

That doesn’t absolve Biden of his role in advancing this lie, as he has each year of his depraved presidency. Biden’s spokesperson claimed he’s just “bringing people together” and that he would “never abuse his faith for political purposes or for profit.” That, too, is a lie. President “Unity” didn’t issue his proclamation to heal divisions but to create them. He wants conservatives to respond with outrage so he can point and say, “Bigot.” That’s the political game here.

And it is based on a deeper lie. The idea that a man can take hormones or lop off healthy body parts to “become a woman” or that a woman can bind or remove her breasts and “be a man” are lies worthy of Genesis 3. “Did God really say…?” the serpent asked. Did God really make only male and female? What does Joe Biden mean — are “transgendered” people “made in the image of God” before or after they medically alter their bodies? The good Catholic president is peddling the lies of Satan.

Who are the people harmed most by these lies? Adults and children who are told they were born in the “wrong body” or “assigned” a gender at birth against their will, and thus, a lifetime of medical experimentation and mutilation is the only thing that can fix them.

Who gains from these lies? Doctors who cash in by creating long-term patients out of otherwise healthy people while betraying the Hippocratic Oath to “do no harm.” Political groups that create jobs and haul in big money to bring “visibility” to the cause. A president and other politicians who want to be seen as hip and inclusive among potential young voters.

Yes, there is a lot of reason for outrage. The Rainbow Mafia demands fealty and harshly punishes dissent. Again, there is no more visible group on the planet, and the grooming and recruiting for that group is just plain evil.

People struggling with their identity are being lied to and mutilated in the name of compassion. It is the opposite of love to do this to people, especially those who are vulnerable. Those of us who know better ought to extend a message of real love and help. That’s hard to do when evil is being shoved down our throats, but that only makes it more important.

The good news of Easter is that God’s promise in Genesis 3:15 was fulfilled. Christ, Eve’s “offspring,” undid and defeated the lies of Satan. Rather than merely rage at those lies, Christians should take and spread comfort in Christ’s victory.
