Lord Have Mercy Southern Baptists Issue A Resolutions On Transgender Edentity!
Southern Baptist delegates approved resolutions at the denomination's annual meeting yesterday on topics ranging from transgender identity and Hollywood's portrayal of the afterlife to government support of casinos and lotteries.
On transgender identity, the delegates affirmed that "God's good design that gender identity is determined by biological sex and not by one's self-perception." The resolution, which was approved, urges transgender people to "trust in Christ and to experience renewal in the Gospel."
Ok, I need help understanding this, I am just a little confused with exactly what's meant by the newly passed resolution. Did they just go on record opposing gender assignment surgery and cross-sex hormone therapies for individuals who might want to make a choice, as in what sex they are? If so, Why? If a child is born with both sex organs (intersex is the medical term, I think) is it ok, to leave the child that way and not have the surgery? Is this what's being suggested?
