Emory University in Georgia has historically been affiliated with the United Methodist Church and has always been considered a Christian university…
… so when the school announced it was implementing a new “transgender” pronoun policy – people were stunned.
And once you hear what university officials have done you’re bound to be outraged.
“Transgender” madness has been mainstream at secular schools for awhile now – but it’s starting to impact Christian universities like never before.
Students at Seattle Pacific University were against the school’s policy of not hiring those who identified as LGBT – so they handed out rainbow flags to the university’s president during their graduation ceremony.
But at Emory University in Georgia, officials decided it was time to let students choose to identify by their “preferred pronoun” of choice – instead of assuming they were a boy or girl.
The new policy gives students a variety of pronouns to choose from – including “xie” and “ze”.
The Christian Post reported:
“The policy change, which took effect in June, offers students the choice of “he/him/his,” “she/her/hers,” “they/them/theirs,” “xie/hir/hirs” and “ze/zir/zirs” as pronouns, according to Emory’s website.
Once students make their selection, the pronouns, like chosen names, will populate in locations such as class rosters, enrollment records and other university documents.”
The LGBT madness has made a mockery out of once respectable universities.
Can you imagine a class roster listing a female student as “they” or “ze”?
These types of policies are dangerous because they continue to allow students who struggle with gender dysphoria to believe that it’s completely normal to “change genders” or “choose your own pronouns.”
Instead, schools should be offering counseling to students struggling with their identity to truly get to the root of the issue.
While LGBT madness is (sadly) expected at public universities, it’s tragic when a Christian university forsakes the Bible and adopts such policies.
Emory’s school officials claim the change was inspired by students and faculty members who wanted all students to feel “respected” …
… as if referring to a student by their biological gender is somehow disrespectful.
The Christian Post continued:
“Dona Yarbrough, assistant vice president of Campus Life and a consultant to the Designated Pronouns implementation team, said the effort is intended to “reflect our appreciation of the range of gender identities and our respect for all people.”
“Our names and pronouns are essential to our identities, the most common ways we refer to one another,” said Yarbrough. “When we call a person by the wrong name or pronoun, we risk causing them to feel disrespected.”
We must continue to fervently pray for our youth while they navigate our current culture and are bombarded with the lie that one can simply “choose” whatever gender they feel like in the moment.
There are countless stories of teens who transition and come to regret their decision – only by then it’s often too late and they have permanently damaged their bodies.
Other teens “wake up” to the truth – and become so depressed they commit suicide.
Satan is the master deceiver – and he keeps people trapped in darkness.
As Christians, we must remember to intercede for our children and pray God puts people around them who aren’t afraid to speak truth into their lives – that they are loved by Him and created with a purpose.
What are your thoughts on Emory University letting students “choose their own gender”?
Do you think this policy will harm students in the long run?
