“And any other commandment, are summed up in this word: “You shall love your neighbor as yourself.” Love does no wrong to a neighbor; therefore love is the fulfilling of the law.” ~Romans 13:9-10
Any parent knows that raising a child requires saying the word “no” … a lot. For some babies, because they hear it so often, the first word that they learn to say is “no”. Parents don’t say that word so often because they don’t love their child….quite the opposite. They say no because they love their child and want to protect them from harm. They want to give their child the best possible life, so they protect them. When they reach to touch the stove, no. When they start to run into the street, no. When they start to put that dirt in their mouth, no. And even though they cry… the parent’s love persists.
Love is saying the hard things. So what does loving your neighbor look like? Who is your neighbor? Love looks like the fruit of the spirit. Love looks like Grace and Mercy. But love also looks like Truth and Protection.
At the Capitol today a bill is being introduced that will ban gender reassignment surgery for minors. It’s hard to believe a surgery like that is even considered for a child, but this mutilation procedure is real. No child should be allowed to make this decision … even with consent of their parents. The stove is hot, the street is busy, and this surgery is irreversible, mentally abusive, and evil. We as a people must say NO to child mutilation. These children are our neighbors and we as a state must love them enough to say “no”. Tell your friends, your church, and your neighbors to contact their representatives to vote for this legislation that will prevent child mutilation.
