Hi Brucette

The media is having a field day with the harbinger of a new dawn: Bruce Jenner is happily a woman. Ouch and ugh. The evolution of man continues to inspire, uh yea ok, whatever you say.

Image result for bruce jenner

How tolerant society has become to accept the transformation of male into female, or is it female into male? Hi Mr. Jenner how are ya? Or should we call you Ms. Jenner? Or just plain Bruce? Or is it Brucette?   Insert five sighs here.

The ramifications of such a life cannot be isolated to Jenner himself/herself. There are these things called ripples in the sea. Government, medicine, sports, culture,  state, federal, and local law will all be called to amend ‘biases,’  and what is sour milk today will be poured on your corn flakes tomorrow.

This is weary to even speak of. (Yes, God’s word is light years ahead with the newly accepted opinion of ending a sentence in a preposition btw.)

Has Mr/Ms Jenner the right to do as he/she may? Yep. Must I get on board accepting such a thing as the new norm? Nope.

You see the real story is not about what Mr/Ms Jenner chooses to do. The story is the promotion to portray his new life as acceptable and worthy. The story is the propaganda, not what Brucette does. What’s next, the promotion of gay ‘marriage?’   😉

They with sleight of hand will cry:  Is a crime being committed? Why are you not tolerant? What business is it of yours? Uh excuse me? The media onslaught has made it my business by shoving this ‘news’ down my throat, so yes, I can speak of a crime being committed.

It’s called a crime against humanity, a simple insult to nature, just as true with Chaz Bono, or is it Chastity? Should a person be hauled before a court and a judge to be heard or sentenced if a law was broken? Now that’s an interesting question, but there are not enough judges on earth or jurors to handle such a case load.

But c’mon transgenderism? Men’s room, ladies room? Men’s clothes, ladies clothes? What does the mail say? Mr or Ms, Bruce or Brucette? Whew, it’s a good thing God’s word tells us what a man or a woman is, lest we confuse Sarah Silverman with a hyena.

    Oh ColorStorm

    How I can remember back almost 40 years now..

    The Bicentennial Celebration of our great country.

    The impending start of my High School career.

    Bruce Jenner winning the Decathlon Gold Medal in the Montreal Olympics.

    What a hero he was. What a MAN he was.

    Now, he’s not.

      There is a degree of pity toward such. but the push to make this ‘normal’ is just cruel.

      Will he make the new Wheaties box is the real question.

    ” lest we confuse Sarah Silverman with a hyena.”

    Speaking of animal life….”I can relate to him entirely. I am a trans-zebra. In my heart I have always known I was a zebra trapped in a man’s body. Now that I have had surgery, people are not understanding at all and make jokes such as animals not allowed, or you can’t paint stripes on a horse and change it to a zebra. Like Jenner is suffering I am also. Why is it people are having a hard time understanding I am a zebra?”

    This was a comment found on a forum in response to the Brucie and Diane Sawyer interview: Should I feel convicted about taking a sarcastic jab at this guy? Well, I don’t. According to Jesus, there is a divinely appointed ditch that Jenner and other spiritually blind people shall eventually fall into.

        Her physical attractiveness has nothing to do with her comedy routine, and if you can’t tell the difference, I feel sorry for you. What she’s trying to accomplish, is to break barriers. Personally, I don’t find much of her humor funny, but I find her physically attractive – I’m open-minded enough to be able to separate the two. Bill Cosby has spent half a century as a comedian, and has never felt the necessity of “working blue,” which is show-biz talk for utilizing toilet humor, and I admire him for that.

          I’m really confused. Your stance seems to be that decadence, and therefore all morality is subjective. Good enough, let’s say it is. It’s not, but let’s just say it is. You have made repeated value judgments about the immorality of Christianity generally and God specifically, yet the trash being referred to here is okay, because it is subjective.

          Why is morality subjective when it comes to filth and garbage, but suddenly becomes very objective when it comes from the mouth of God?

          You’re misunderstanding my stance. Silverman, Jenner, whoever you wish to name – I don’t point children toward them and maintain that these are people we should admire and emulate. If you, and your ilk (yes, you have an ilk, by association), would simply keep your religious beliefs to yourselves, I wouldn’t have an issue with those either, but you don’t. You push those beliefs onto little, impressionable children and tell them that they will burn in hell forever if they don’t accept them – THAT’S what has me up in arms. Believe what you like, for as long as you like, and take it to your death bed (tick, tock!), but allow the children to grow up uncontaminated.

          RE subjective morals – and I plan to write a guest blog post on that subject soon, on Ark’s blog – are simple: you have every right to run around like a crazy person, swinging your fist – I can look at you and laugh, as I often do anyway – that, is MY right, but I have no right to stop you or tell you that what you’re doing is “wrong”. But your right to swing your fist stops just short of my nose – once you go further than that, you have infringed on my right to be left alone. You have the right to believe the moon is made of green cheese (it’s actually Camembert!), but your rights end when you try to impose that belief onto others.

  4. So much of this brouhaha comes, as you say CS, at the hands of the media. . .and I for one have grown weary being told what is and is not news or better yet, offered a plate of news that is not news. The fact that David Muir has for the past 2 nights, or has it been 3 as I’ve tried to tune it out while doing dishes, given air time to this now infamous interview. . . it beyond my soul!!!—what this guy (maybe that’s now the wrong word now to use) chooses to do to his life, his body, his mind, his family is his business and not mine— I don’t think it’s right, I don’t agree and I certainly have no say and in the matter— it’s his choice.
    It is not my business, yet again CS, as you say, the media has shoved it in my face–bringing us all into the brouhaha together–of which I greatly resent.

    “Flip the channel” you say. “Turn off the television if you don’t like what you see” you exclaim–but if I do, choosing to say, go check my e- mail, it’s on my at&t page. If I check any online news site– it’s there. If I’m standing in the checkout line at the grocery store, it’s there—splashed across every magazine and rag tag sheet stacked at checkout.
    We are inundated by this one man’s decision and I for one cry foul.

    News is the humanitarian crisis in Syria and of the sinking migrant ships in the Mediterranean.
    The commemorating of the 100th anniversary of Gallipoli—a historic and tragic event and key moment during WWI which brought to light the genocide of the Armenians at the hands of the last remnants of the Ottoman Empire—significant historical events that have had lasting ramifications throughout the world– yet sadly, if I were a betting woman, I would say that the majority of our youth and young adults could tell you all about Bruce Jenner’s latest escapade while having never ever heard the word Gallipoli.
    Have we become so jaded by world crises that we’ve allowed to ourselves and our minds to be filled with the sullied stories of the sideshows rather than the reality of events that effect humanity? A transgender individual is not a sweeping humanitarian crisis, historical even or issue—but at the rate we’re going, it might be. . .

    This story, as well as the story of “chaz / Chasity” Bono and anybody else who opts to push the envelope of acceptability, social norms, biology, traditional families, going against the grain of male and female, is not news, is not my concern, is not my business. . . yet our media and entertainment industry sure thinks it should be. Have we allowed our voyeuristic nature, our curious nature, our ambulance chasing nosiness to get the better of us that we are drawn to such fodder as moths to a flame? If so, then shame on us.

    There’s so much that’s wrong with this story on a worldly level that I’ve not even approached this from a Spiritual level—of which I don’t have space enough here to begin. . .

    God help us is all I can say—and I know that there will be those who take issue with even that remark—– sigh

    It is an affront to God that we should ever be so confused about how he created the world and intended it to be….how lost a person must be to tell God that he is not happy the way God made him? But then again the easy way to remedy that problem, it seems, is to simply not believe in God – better yet – just twist his creation around until it is comfortable and convenient for us. I watched his achievements in the Olympics on TV and admired him – now I can only pray for him.

      I watched a car accident on the freeway, on the news last night, in which the driver was pulled from the car just as it burst into flames – someone thanked god that he was saved, but if that person’s god hadn’t allowed the accident to happen in the first place, the driver would have driven home, been safely in bed, and still had a car.

  9. Well said, ColorStorm. This kind of stuff weighs a bit heavy on my heart. There’s a certain kind of cruelty entwined in saying things like “what business is it of mine what Jenner does” or “we must accept his choices.” That’s the problem with humans trying to define morality, we become downright myopic about it. Does love not compel us to guide a troubled man down another path? Instead we cheer him on because it fuels an agenda we do not even understand.

    As to Sarah Silverman, she got called out on facebook the other day and gave me a genuine chuckle. She complained about not getting equal pay for equal work at a comedy club and the owner got wind of it and confronted her. It turns out she was performing as a free guest and his “payment” was actually just car fare because he felt sorry for her. She was forced to apologize for totally misrepresenting that incident, for shaming the poor guy’s reputation, and for trying to politicize the whole thing. So, a dishonest hyena, would be more accurate.

    The thing is a persons sexuality is determined by their DNA, which they cannot change. A man is a man and a woman is a woman no matter how they mutilate themselves. Many who have chased after this mutilation later regret it. It is just perversion of another order of magnitude coming out of the sinful heart of wicked people who are driven by the devil to despise God’s order. They are dead in trespasses and sins, bound for God’s divine wrath in hell. They need a Savior. Maybe we can pray for Mr. Jenner to turn from this wicked foolishness and instead turn to Christ Jesus as his Lord and Savior.

Life is hard, it is not fair but we have been given free will and choice. . .and as a Christian, I have agreed to follow what Christ asks of me in a free world of choice—-do I fall, make mistakes, rebel—Yes, all the time, but I continue picking myself up, dusting myself off, working toward forgiveness as well as continued obedience to what is asked. And I know you or others may laugh at this blind obedience business–obedience to the wind you say, but that is what my faith is all about–blessed are those who believe yet have not seen—I can identify with Thomas and his need for the visual.

          Thank you for bringing up hermaphrodites. There you have a perfect example of DNA mutating to give a genuine sexual deformity. However, God did create all with their many physical imperfections (we are not speaking of sin here).

          And Moses said unto the LORD, O my Lord, I am not eloquent, neither heretofore, nor since thou hast spoken unto thy servant: but I am slow of speech, and of a slow tongue. And the LORD said unto him, Who hath made man’s mouth? or who makes the dumb, or deaf, or the seeing, or the blind? have not I the LORD? Now therefore go, and I will be with thy mouth, and teach thee what thou shalt say. Exodus 4:10-12

          Those who are hermaphrodites have reason to be confused. However, those who are equipped with normal sexual hardware have no excuse. This is the perfect example of sin coming out of the human heart. Mr. Jenner spoke about thinking, (THINKING) that he felt (FELT) like he was a woman. People are capable of coming up with all sorts of thoughts that are not sound or reasonable. This occurs because of the sin nature that every human has when they come into this world.

          The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it? I the LORD search the heart, I try the reins, even to give every man according to his ways, and according to the fruit of his doings. Jeremiah 17:9-10

          19 Hear, O earth! Behold, I will certainly bring calamity on this people–The fruit of their thoughts, Because they have not heeded My words Nor My law, but rejected it. Jeremiah 6:19

          Our compassion as believers is to warn the wicked to repent of their wicked ways and to turn to the Lord Jesus Christ in repentant faith for the salvation of their souls. For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, and are under, right now, His just wrath. Our compassion as believers is to share the sure Word of God, the Bible and trust the Holy Spirit to do His work. Our compassion as believers is to do good to all men, while we have opportunity, and the greatest good that we can do is to give them the gospel of God’s salvation so they can be saved from God’s wrath and reconciled to Him. That is the greatest compassion, and those who impede this work are showing the greatest hate and doing the greatest damage to mankind. God bless us:)

          All People deal with thoughts and ideas that are not necessarily right, good, edifying or that lead to a good outcome.

By the way, which branch of psychology are you referring to, since there are hundreds?

          Do you know what you are promoting? Peace, peace when there is no peace. The peace that you preach from the mouths of your worldly prophets leads to the rejection of the truth and reception of the Anti-Christ who will lead the world astray. His appearing is another manifestation of the wrath of God that stands against all sinners.

          Instead of promoting what will truly bring in genuine peace, reconciliation with God the Father through Jesus Christ His Son, you work with the other anti-christs in opposing God’s message and His remedy for the terrible plight that people find themselves in, represented on this post by Mr. Jenner, enslavement to sin, deception by the devil, entrapment by the world, and damnation by God’s wrath.

          Your work and words are deceitful no matter how beguiling you may appear and they will be weighed against you by God. Your insistence that warning others about God’s just judgment is somehow unloving demonstrates your depravity. God’s love is demonstrated through sending His Son Jesus Christ that those who repent of their sins and put their faith in Him may be delivered from enslavement by the sin nature, deception by Satan, entrapment by this fallen world system and the surety of God’s just judgment. You are not doing a good work or even an indifferent work because you oppose the work of God through the gospel message given to us in His Word the Bible. Those who know their God and King must vigorously oppose your wicked work. Whether or not you are saved isn’t at issue here, what is at issue is your insistence that you are wiser than God, have superior knowledge to His Word, and have greater impact upon His children than His Holy Spirit. May God rebuke you to your face.

    my choice Arch is to believe and to follow. . .not out of fear of damnation, but rather out of loving a loving God (yes that is my perception, not yours I know), who in my heart, loves me—to be separated from the love for all of eternity would be the damnation of hell of which you speak—I could not / cannot be separated from that. To have any sort of existence without HIm would be more than I could bear.
    It’s ok if you don’t understand that or if you even think me daft—it is because of His grace that I have found a peace in my heart—a heart that has not always been at peace. I’m not here to cram anything down anyone’s throat. . .I may appear intolerant to you or others as you say, but it is because I choose to follow my God who has laid down a covenant between Himself and the created (me)— but that’s what I believe. So I may ask you if you cannot be tolerant of my choice despite it not being you choice.
    And that’s not to say Arch that I don’t get mad at HIm for all of the pain and suffering I see all around me or even those who call themselves followers but are often misguided—He sees my anger and takes it in stride—not out of smugness or arrogance for I know His heart breaks to see us suffer, fight, hurt. . .but this earth is a battle ground—of a spiritual warfare—as I often say—the war is won but the battles rage on. . .
    and again Arch, this is just me and my heart, my thought, my beliefs—not necessarily you and yours. . . and that my friend, is ok.
    Peace to you both—-

  12. These are certainly crazy days, CS. We are called to maintain a Biblical view in spite of a media juggernaut that is so pervasive and controlling. Yes, we can avoid TV but not the conversations around the workplace, gym or coffee shop so we need to be informed.
    “The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge; Fools despise wisdom and instruction.” Proverbs 1:7 Not seeing a lot of fear these days…

    Hey CS, this was an interesting post thank you for writing it! I have to admit I was glued to the interview Friday night because Jenner was so authentic and you could tell he spent a life time of suffering dealing with his gender confusion.

    I don’t like the media firestorm either and think it ridiculous that he’s being branded some sort of hero but the humanity behind the story is touching. Plus watching Diane Sawyer’s head explode after Jenner confessed to being a Republican was worth it the price of admission!

      Yes, Tricia, he is being exploited, and there are serious issues as you say. There had to have been heavy influence to go on such a path, and many will disagree, but probably could have been avoided.

      The apple tree doesn’t produce peaches kinda thing. No, i am not superior, and am not condemning anyone, but (by the way, insanitybytes has an awesome post on this) for goodness sake, seriously, do you address such a person as male or female? The very question suggests something is amiss.

      Anyway, Sawyer. Ugh. I didn’t see it but could imagine her jaw drop I’m sure.

        I didn’t take your post as condemning him CS, I thought you spoke some much needed truth. I’ll have to check out IB’s post on this, I’m sure she’s got som,e good stuff to say as well.

        …seriously, do you address such a person as male or female?” – Just out of curiosity, what cause would a person like you have to address such a person in the first place? Go win a few Olympic Gold Medals, then get back to me on that —

      RE the Jenner interview – I didn’t watch it, as it held no interest for me, but by your comment, it’s clear you’re a compassionate person, Tricia, and your anti-Republican remark is worth remembering. I guess you could walk across my lawn, if you don’t mention it to anyone.

        I could wear a hat and glasses if you like. Btw, the Republican comment was to make fun of DS. I can’t remember if I’ve ever voted Democrat in my life…am I still invited to your part of town?

        All kidding aside, I think most, if not all of us here are compassionate, you as well Arch. We hold different definitions on the meaning though which tends to cause angst. And I thanks God for that, literally. How boring the world would be though if we all thought the same.

          I once lived in Mexico, right on the seacoast, and worked in downtown San Diego, and I recall one weekend afternoon, shopping in nearby Tijuana, standing on the sidewalk, watching the parade of 5’8″, dark-skinned, black-haired people, speaking Spanish, pass by, and at that moment I recalled instances of walking from my office in downtown SD, to lunch at a nearby restaurant, and within a block, I had encountered every conceivable skin color, every possible hair color and style, and heard a dozen different languages spoken. I can appreciate differences.

          However the heaven that every one here seems so anxious to get into, offers nothing but sameness – church that lasts for eternity.

        “However the heaven that every one here seems so anxious to get into, offers nothing but sameness – church that lasts for eternity.” You should see the church I go to, every possible ethnicity under the sun and very, shall I say ghettoish. It’s absolutely wonderful and I think even you would enjoy it very much Arch. The invitation is always open if you ever visit this way. I won’t even make you disguise yourself, although you may want to so as not to be seen with me.

        Heaven is beyond comprehension to humans but rest assured it will be anything but boring and ordinary. Now that other place mind you….

          I’ll bake you a cake but will you accept one from a Christian? Sorry, couldn’t resist!

          Yup, gotta agree it won’t be dull down there. Rather too warm for my blood.

          Tricia, I don’t have a problem with Christians, I have a problem with Christian proselytizers – not all Christians proselytize. My biggest problem is with Fundamentalist, Christian Proselytizers, who close their minds regarding the Bible and don’t want to learn anything about how it was written, or by whom.
