Yes, you read the title correctly. Scottish authorities have officially gone insane. While listening to my favorite Scottish/American pastor’s sermon today, he mentioned this. It’s no wonder his mood seemed somber. I had to recheck his facts and, surely enough, it is true. Several different publications have reported the news. You can read one of the sources here.
“It was disclosed that any pupil who decides they want to switch gender must be supported and listened to in school following the Scottish Government’s advice.
The guidance applies in primary schools, where the youngest children are only four or five, because ‘recognition and development of gender identity can occur at a young age’.
It also tells teachers not to question a child who says they want to transition to live as a boy or a girl – and instead ask for their new name and pronouns.”
Here is the report entitled Supporting Transgender Pupils In Schools, Guidance for Scottish Schools.
So, one European country will allow a pre-schooler to make a personal gender determination and another (Norway) won’t allow a child as old as 17 to have any say on whether he/she will be allowed to live with a parent or not. These inhumane and bizarre policies are now part of life in two countries with Christian legacies.
People who are creating these types of protocols are not considering the authority of God. Anyone familiar with and in the slightest agreement with Biblical statements regarding the treatment of children would recoil at such codes.
There is not a lick of wisdom in these types of rulings. Yet, Christians know where wisdom comes from:
“The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom, And the knowledge of the Holy One is understanding.” -Proverbs 9:10
The lack of even a semblance of wisdom in this decision screams how spiritually bankrupt the originators of things like this are. This headline is another indication of how far nations once influenced by Biblical Christianity have fallen.
May God have mercy on us.
