Bill Muehlenberg's commentary on issues of the day...

Bruce Jenner and Trans-Sanity

Jun 3, 2015

Note to Bruce Jenner (no, not Caitlyn – you are Bruce, and always will be): you are obviously a very troubled individual who needs counsel, therapy and professional help. But you certainly do not need celebration, endorsement and praise for your misguided move to become female.

Indeed, you should not be buying into the lies of the gender benders. You are not a female, and you never have been a female. You are male: how in the world do you think your two daughters entered into the world? They sure did not come about by two women messing around.

jenner 1And you should be ashamed of your recent photo shoot. Sure, you made a lot of money out of it, but how many people are you harming in the process? I refer to the July issue of Vanity Fair. As one report says,

Bruce Jenner has starred on the cover of Vanity Fair as a woman in a stunning shoot for Annie Leibovitz and has revealed her name as Caitlyn Jenner. In the first look at Bruce as a woman, the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star poses demurely in an ivory corset, it is the first time the public has seen the former Olympian as a female, following the announcement that he was transitioning from a man to a woman earlier this year.

His immediate family will be among the big losers. As Denise Shick writes:

America is watching intently as you seek to transition from man to woman. So are your daughters. As a daughter who watched her own father make the same choice, I plead with you to reconsider. My father’s revelation to me that he wanted to become a woman sent my life into a tailspin.
As I read an article titled “Kylie Jenner ignores Bruce Jenner,” reportedly humiliated by his transition, I sensed that your daughters are about to enter a time of loss, anger and humiliation much like the tailspin I endured. And, had it not been for the persistent love of God and a good man who became my husband, I suspect I’d still be in that descent—or dead.
Please hear my heart when I try to express how difficult this must be for your daughters. They are losing a father. No matter how they might try to cover up the grief they are feeling, it’s there. It isn’t enough to tell them you’re still there for them, just in a different body. Memories will be all that your daughters retain of their father—and that’s not enough.

Walt Heyer knows all about the pain and regret of sex change. He writes:

Bruce Jenner and Diane Sawyer could benefit from a history lesson. I know, because I suffered through “sex change” surgery and lived as a woman for eight years. The surgery fixed nothing—it only masked and exacerbated deeper psychological problems.
The beginnings of the transgender movement have gotten lost today in the push for transgender rights, acceptance, and tolerance. If more people were aware of the dark and troubled history of sex-reassignment surgery, perhaps we wouldn’t be so quick to push people toward it….
Transgender clients who regret having taken this path are often full of shame and remorse. Those who regret their decision have few places to turn in a world of pro-transgender activism. For me, it took years to muster the courage to stand up and speak out about the regret.
I only wish Dr. Paul Walker had been required to tell me about both reports when I consulted him: the Hopkins study showing surgery did not alleviate severe psychological problems, and Ihlenfeld’s observation of the continuing transgender unhappiness and high incidence of suicide after hormones and surgery. This information might not have stopped me from making that disastrous decision—but at least I would have known the dangers and pain that lay ahead.

Let me tie in two related matters here, as I am currently in North America. The first concerns a terrific Christian worker who actually knows Jenner and has been involved in athletics and sports ministry for quite some time. I refer to Steve McConkey who I just recently had lunch with in Madison, Wisconsin.

This blurb tells us a bit more about him: “Steve McConkey is the President of 4 Winds Christian Athletics (4 WINDS). Steve and his wife started working in world-class track and field ministries in 1981, with ministry offices in Oregon, Texas, Minnesota, and now Madison, Wisconsin. With an emphasis on defending the Christian faith, 4 WINDS expanded to all sports in 2014.” He has just posted an article on Bruce:

With his Vanity Fair front page promotion, sports hero Bruce Jenner, now supposedly Caitlyn, will open a floodgate of immorality that will affect Americans for generations to come.
Jenner’s decision will be exploited by the media and the education system throughout the world. Confused people will now have an adult transgender as a hero.
4 Winds Christian Athletics President Steve McConkey stood up against the International Olympic Committee in 2003 when they allowed transgenders in the Olympics. He was the only sports person publicly addressing the issue.
Steve knew this decision would open the floodgates for immorality. Currently, thirty-three state high school associations allow boys to compete on girls teams, and vice versa. Now you have the Jenner situation.
Also, he has publicly stood up against the International Olympic Committee, US Olympic Committee, NCAA, and USA Track and Field for caving into the gay agenda.
“We are living in a time where athletes will be monitored for what they believe,” states Steve McConkey. “Athletes who believe homosexuality is a sin could be penalized by governing sports organizations.”
Steve has been slandered online by many, including BuzzFeed from New York City. On February 4, they had an article saying conservatives like Steve cause transgenders to commit suicide. BuzzFeed has a reach of 100 million people.
“Christians are on the verge of persecution that they have never experienced before in the United States,” says McConkey. “The Supreme Court’s same-sex decision this month is important, but already states are pushing for homosexuality. We need to pray and stand up even if we are in the minority. Only a revival can reverse what we see.”

And all this gender bender moonbattery is not just negatively impacting on confused individuals – all of society is being adversely affected by this madness as well. As I happen to be in Vancouver right now, let me just mention what idiocy is being proposed here. As one report states:

After successfully lobbying provincial and federal governments to make it easier to amend sex designations on key identity documents, transgender Canadians are now pushing for another change: to abolish gender references altogether from birth certificates.
The B.C. Human Rights Tribunal has agreed to review complaints filed by the Trans Alliance Society and a handful of transgender and intersex individuals, who argue that doctors should stop assigning the sex of a baby based on a quick inspection of the baby’s genitals at birth when there’s a possibility they may identify under a different gender, or no gender, years later.
“Birth certificates (may) give false information about people and characterize them in a way that is actually wrong, that assumes to be right, and causes people … actual harm,” said Morgane Oger, a transgender woman in Vancouver and chair of the society.

Australian Babette Francis offers this commentary on such coercive utopianism:

So an obstetrician is a bigot and heterosexist if he or she announces to happy parents: “your baby is a boy” or “it’s a girl”.
Then there’s the move to abolish terms like “husband” and “wife” from marriage certificates in favour of “partner” – not even the gender-neutral “spouse” – thus reducing marriage to the level of cohabitation or even a business relationship!
As I said, the bullying has already started, and it is not in our schools. The “butcher, the baker and candle-stick maker” as the nursery rhyme goes, who have been driven bankrupt are mute witnesses to the bullying by LGBTIQ activists. Limerick poet F.R Duplantier sums it up best, his poem is headed “Spite”.
We have oodles of gay friends who bake,
Who could make us a fabulous cake:
To claim discrimination, We need dissimulation –
And a Christian to burn at the stake.

Yes all this is not only a war on biology and reality, but it is a war on the God of biology and reality. When we reject the created order which a wise and loving God has given us, we screw up everything. We destroy human sexuality, we destroy individuals, we destroy families, and we destroy society.

This war on gender is really a war on God. And it seems to be getting worse by the day. We must of course pray for tortured souls like Bruce – they are very mixed up and in need of help. But we do them no favours by glorifying them and adulating them, and supporting their reckless delusions and decisions.

  • I see Vanity but no Fair. Interestingly it’s exactly the Vanity Fair in Bunyan’s The Pilgrim’s Progress – a place built by Beelzebub where every thing to a human’s tastes, delights, and lusts are sold daily, where both Christian and Faithful are arrested and detained because of their disdain for the wares and business of the Fair. Faithful is put on trial, and executed by burning at the stake as a martyr. A celestial chariot then takes Faithful to the Celestial City, martyrdom being a shortcut there. Hopeful, a resident of Vanity Fair, takes Faithful’s place to be Christian’s companion for the rest of the way.

    Prophetic writing by John Bunyan.

  • Well said Bill.
    One more thing: Is it going to give back the medals that it won as a man or will it shelve that as past history?
    How about the deception of entering as a man when all along it claims it was a woman?
    How about competing in the wrong class and then denying those who came second their win?

  • Your last comments remind me of Proverbs 8:36 Bill, “All those who hate me (wisdom) love death.” Many of the things you document seem to be continual steps on that path. It’s going to be a relief when the knowledge of the Lord covers the earth as the waters cover the sea! (Hab 2:14). Until then, may we be found faithful. And may the Lord mercifully revive us.

    Grace & Peace

  • Shame we don’t see his hands and his feet in the photo, then it would be quite obvious he is a man. This man is a living blasphemy.

  • Mr Jenner’s efforts to be a woman – fail.

    You can lipstick on a pig but it’s still a pig.

    This is the ‘strong delusion’ that all who hate truth (reality) labour under. They want certain sins to be ok, so they create a new reality based on feelings, but true reality doesn’t care about feelings. Truth IS.

  • Dear Bill,

    Thank you for the excellent article. It is guaranteed the MSM won’t refer to Walter Heyer’s experience.

    For all his efforts to camouflage his gender the poor sick man can’t get rid of his manly features. He still looks like a man and what is worse he looks ridiculous. Vanity Fair hasn’t done him any favours even if they did pay him well

  • In yesterday’s Express.co.uk site there was an article saying that his mother will continue to name him Bruce the name his parents gave him 65 years ago…good on her. Also I tell you one thing that is not the body of a 65 year old pensioner, sorry, I am nearly 60 and in good shape and I don’t even look that smooth, I think either another body or photo manipulating.

    As a daughter, I know the shame of knowing my father is a transvestite, it ruined our relationship 40 years ago which has never recovered because the man I dearly loved as my father ceased to exist the day I saw him grotesquely dressed as a woman.

    Bill, I would appreciate my name being withheld this one time as both of my parents and sisters live in Australia.

  • Creating a god in their own mind to suit themselves, nothing less than absolute Idolatry

  • In Judges 21:25 we read, “In those days there was no king in Israel. Everyone did what was right in his own eyes.” This is not much different from the world today. As Christians we have a King, but he is one whom the world does not accept. They prefer to be their own judge of what is right and wrong. But there understanding is darkened, and so how can they choose right from wrong?

    When I was agency nursing, I was sometimes sent to a private hospital that specialized in gender reassignment and abortion. I refused to have anything to do with abortion cases, although on one occasion I spoke to a woman who was admitted for that purpose. I told her I’d pray for her. The next day I heard she’d decided to go home without having the procedure.

    I followed the ‘progress’ of a middle-aged man who underwent gender reassignment surgery after many months of hormone treatment. I have never witnessed a sadder example of what can happen when we do what is right in our own eyes. He became a psychiatric wreck, his body rejected the surgery and broke down, with dead flesh becoming gangrenous. He became incontinent, and finally died of systemic infection. His ‘partner’ also died. I prayed for him (at his request) before he died. It is an experience I will never forget. And I witnessed many more similarly sad cases. It became clear to me that these people believe they will be happy if they change their bodies, but realize too late that it is only a pipe dream. It is a more extreme form of repetitive elective plastic surgery, where many women have endless operations to make them look more youthful. That, too, is a pipe dream. Without God we only fool ourselves.

    The problem with humanity is that without Christ we cannot do what is right. Sin rules our bodies and our minds. We think we are ‘enlightened’, but our understanding is darkened. Pride tells us we can do it on our own, and unless we yield our wills to God, we remain without hope, and like Frank Sinatra, our mournful last words are “I did it my way”.

    Oh dear Bill, now you’ve done it. You better watch out, seeing as you are in the US area, ucla will be out to get you now.
    You are a big meany apparently,”Words matter and erasing the identity of trans people by calling them by their birth names and birth-assigned sex is an act of hatred — one that is inextricable from the brutal violence” From their article.
    Well done mate, good article, he was born an XY which make him a man, he might have had bits added and or taken away, but guess what, he is still XY which makes him a surgically altered man.

    Some words of wisdom from someone working at the front line of this issue

  • The number of Christians carrying on about how we need to be compassionate in the face of this drastic and dangerous social engineering is very concerning.

    What is happening with Vanity Fair is not one individual to whom we can be compassionate – it’s a collectivist agenda at the forefront of a movement to turn people away from Jesus by twisting and perverting the natural order. They’ve already successfully banned scripture from schools and this is the next step – distorting the plain and obvious order before our eyes.

    It’s like watching the Nazi’s roll down the streets of Paris and saying “Let’s not judge now. We dont want to be like the Pharisees – we need to show compassion because God is greatly compassionate.”

    Where is the compassion for children who are actively denied the knowledge of Jesus? Or the ones who are encouraged into dangerous sexual practises that will leave them scarred and damaged?

    This generation in the West is in serious trouble.

  • John Abbott and Bill, I saw at the express.co.uk site that there is a call to hand back the gold…
