With all the new "isms" and sexual variances popping up in our society, clamoring to be heard and given special rights, we have focused solely on the sexual sin and the direction that things could move. Many have been warning that the homosexual rights movement was not the end. Many have been saying that bestiality and multi-couples were just over the horizon. The fear being that if the people of the same sex can "marry," then why can't a man "marry" his dog? What is wrong with four people "marrying" each other?
As frightening as these possibilities are, they may pale to what is coming out of Canada.
If you thought that transgender was the ultimate manifestation of a society ever more unhooked from sanity, then you haven't met the latest wave of "transabled" folk—healthy people who identify with the disabled and maim themselves to achieve their dream.
Unfortunately, this isn't somebody's sick joke. Where identity becomes relativized to the point that people are who they imagine and project themselves to be, everything is possible—and facilitated by an all-abetting culture.
According to the "Transabled," they are disabled people trapped in healthy bodies. They imagine themselves as lame, blind, deaf or missing some other body part. Since this is how they see their "real self," they cannot imagine being happy until they have realized this "disability."
What is worse, there are people seeking to justify and pacify this so called condition.
Alexandre Baril, a Quebec-born academic will present a paper on "transability" at this week's Congress of the Social Sciences and Humanities at the University of Ottawa. Baril defines transability as "the desire or the need for a person identified as able-bodied by other people to transform his or her body to obtain a physical impairment."
"The person could want to become deaf, blind, amputee, paraplegic. It's a really, really strong desire," he said.
There seems to be a major problem in Western society. We are living in a time when people think that they can speak their existence into being. If a man wants to be a woman, fine. If a man wants to "marry" a man, sure. If you feel that you will enjoy life better if you did not have your left arm? Well, then by all means, whack it off!
Stand To Reason puts it best:
Because of this basic difference in worldview, there's no bedrock reality we can appeal to that would cause those who have this second view to rethink their preferences. Instead of following reality in order to refine their preferences, they follow their preferences wherever they lead in order to define reality. If our preferences bump up against an accepted "reality," well then, we just change that reality to something we like better: Killing infants is okay because it means I can consistently approve of abortion. Gender-neutral bathrooms are great because they uphold my goal of not discriminating on the basis of sex in any situation. Doctors ought to cut off the perfectly healthy limbs of the "transabled" because our images of our ideal selves can never be wrong.
We can no longer appeal to absurdity in order to challenge our culture's consistent conclusions, because in a world we create, nothing is inherently absurd.
The problem is summed up like this: We have no level of absurdity that is absurd to those around us. Therefore, we cannot show them that they are wrong in their thinking. When we show them where their thinking logically leads, they simply say "Okay, then that is true too."
God has warned that this is the outcome of disobedience of a people.
The nations have sunk down in the pit which they have made;
In the net which they hid, their own foot has been caught.
The Lord has made Himself known;
He has executed judgment.
In the work of his own hands the wicked is snared.
Our flight from God's standard has brought us to this absurdity and only a return to His Word as our standard will bring us back from the brink.
