First of all, you could say I am a non practicing Christian, baptized in the Methodist church. Personally, I am becoming a stronger and stronger earth based spiritual person and that is another post unto itself and not relevant to the topic.
The blog post I read was called "7 Deadly Sins Parents Commit Against Their Transgender Kids" – In Memory of Leelah Alcorn written by Susan Cottrell on a site called "Patheo's" Here is an excerpt from her number one:
"When I was 14, I learned what transgender meant and cried of happiness. After 10 years of confusion I finally understood who I was. I immediately told my mom, and she reacted extremely negatively, telling me that it was a phase, that I would never truly be a girl, that God doesn’t make mistakes, that I am wrong. Who said anything about God making mistakes? Why do we keep hearing about God not making mistakes – from the people who consider others’ expression of identity and orientation a mistake? You’re the ones threatened by what you call a mistake."She goes on to write about misguided treatment by misguided parents operating their lives and the lives of their kids under the guise of Christianity. Even to the point of using "therapies" which the CIA would have been in trouble for.
