On Tuesday, the father of a biological girl who believes she is a boy turned himself into a Canadian court and was subsequently taken to jail after the Attorney General of British Columbia issued an arrest warrant for contempt after the father had insisted on referring to his daughter as his “daughter” and used the pronouns “she” and “her.”Robert Hoogland, from Surrey, British Columbia, has a 14-year-old daughter. In February 2019, the Supreme Court of British Columbia, Canada ordered that the girl receive testosterone injections without obtaining parental consent. “The court also declared that if either of her parents referred to her using female pronouns

From the Breitbart article: "Hoogland had previously discovered that his daughter’s school had been showing her sexual and gender identity education materials known as “SOGI 123,” which the report referred to as transgender “propaganda videos.” By the 7th grade, the school had changed his daughter’s name in the yearbook without telling her parents, and “socially transitioned” her with the input of gender ideologue psychologist Wallace Wong, who advised the pubescent child to take testosterone."

FTA: "In February 2019, the Supreme Court of British Columbia, Canada ordered that the girl receive testosterone injections without obtaining parental consent." (This man's daughter was 14 at the time.) Tonight, I watched part of an interview with Thomas Sowell and he, effectively, said that he is just as happy that he's of a certain age and won't be around to watch our country evolve into something unrecognizable. He is not too optimistic about our future. He stills holds out hope, though.

We're not evolving, but devolving.... 18 For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who by their unrighteousness suppress the truth. 19 For what can be known about God is plain to them, because God has shown it to them. 20 For his invisible attributes, namely, his eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly perceived, ever since the creation of the world, in the things that have been made. So they are without excuse. 21 For although they knew God, they did not honor him as God or give thanks to him, but they became futile in their thinking, and their foolish hearts were darkened. 22 Claiming to be wise, they became fools, 23 and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images resembling mortal man and birds and animals and creeping things. 24 Therefore God gave them up in the lusts of their hearts to impurity, to the dishonoring of their bodies among themselves, 25 because they exchanged the truth about God for a lie and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever! Amen. 26 For this reason God gave them up to dishonorable passions. For their women exchanged natural relations for those that are contrary to nature; 27 and the men likewise gave up natural relations with women and were consumed with passion for one another, men committing shameless acts with men and receiving in themselves the due penalty for their error. 28 And since they did not see fit to acknowledge God, God gave them up to a debased mind to do what ought not to be done. 29 They were filled with all manner of unrighteousness, evil, covetousness, malice. They are full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, maliciousness. They are gossips, 30 slanderers, haters of God, insolent, haughty, boastful, inventors of evil, disobedient to parents, 31 foolish, faithless, heartless, ruthless. 32 Though they know God’s righteous decree that those who practice such things deserve to die, they not only do them but give approval to those who practice them. ,(Romans 1)

It's happening here, too, #9 et al. No-one can know what it is to be the opposite sex, children even less, they have no concept of it, the concept of self is pretty abstract. The question is what kind of dysphoria is going on in the family, in society such that so many seem to have dysphoria of the sexual kind. As #8 transcribes from Romans, one by one the barriers, parameters, guidelines and principles and the Commandments meant for our good, not to harm us, have been chopped and smashed and demolished. I can say from my studies in history, this condition of corruption and debauchery precedes total debasement and finally collapse and/or conquest by invaders. The question is, are there enough people who've had enough and are willing to say, This far, and no farther? Pray that the will is there to return to the God who created Male and Female, and said, This is Good, REALLY good!

Thank you, #8... When Clinton was PROVED a liar via ‘the blue dress,’ [by the grace of God, by our Beloved hostess,’ Miss Lucianne, to whom America is forever grateful’...] For righteousness’ sake, was sure that was the end of him... Romans 1 was my hope... Since then have learned, ‘God is never in a hurry...’ It’s us... Yes, so much evil. ‘Be of good courage; I will never leave you nor forsake you, Be strong and of good courage!’ ...Joshua 1 KAG

#1 -- I was thinking the same thing a dozen years ago. But the Second Coming will not happen until humanity is "fully ripe" in iniquity. As evil and insane as the world is now, look for it ti get worse. As I predicted to a friend back around 2008, depravity that was not even on the radar of regular folks and the exact nature of which I didn't know was right around the corner. I was right. I predict more of the same very soon. Even more depraved than transsexuality. I shudder to think.

This transgender ideology is being used to crush parental rights. This poor father is being made an example to others who would dare resist the progressive narrative. You will submit or will suffer grave consequences. We are living in a dystopian nightmare of the worst kind. Nothing frightens parents more than knowing the state can come into your home and dictate to you how you can raise your children. A government that will jail a father for trying to protect his child is an abomination and it is coming to power right here in this country. An evil like we have never experienced has been unleashed upon the world and the family unit is a high priority. It must be destroyed.

You can't fix this. If you try, you end up getting jailed. Sometimes the best thing one can do, even for their own daughter, when they are being difficult is avoid them, not say a word, and pray for them in private. At least you won't end up in jail since you never said anything 'offensive'. Only God can fix this. Put the problem in God's hands.

I do not understand Mr Hoogland. Why would any father meekly submit to imprisonment for the crime of referring to his prepubescent daughter as a "she"? Were it me, they'd be stacking up the carcasses of school administrators, counselors, therapists, and judges like cord wood.

Poster #8 In truth, I first typed devolve, but went back and changed it to evolve because it really upset me to admit that our country is going down, but it is. When you aren't really sure whether or not the Supreme Court can follow the Constitution, you know you've pretty much played all your cards. But this morning, I watched Representative Margery Taylor Greene on - War Room-Pandemic - and was really impressed by her because she got into politics to do the right thing for our country. She wants everyone to get involved and told us to go to - Congress.Gov. - where we can read the text of the bills that Congress would prefer to pass in the dead of night. Knowledge is still power.

Wow! 67 years old and liberals have destroyed my country! And fake conservatives let it happen as they lined their pockets with cash from China and campaign coffers! It will NOT get better, by the way! I believe God is removing his hand of protection from the US for many reasons. Mainly abortion and turning our backs on Him. The insanity is only going to increase! I fully expect the persecution of Christians like me to begin within a year or two. First we will be cancelled and then sent to camps and finally displayed in some football arena where they can loose the lions! All while Mitt Romney plays footsies with the democRATs!
