gender confusion 1The liberal governor of a Southern state is under fire for undermining traditional family values by creating a special day of observance for "gay" parents.

As directed by the Democratic governor of the state, North Carolina observed "Gender Expansive Parents' Day" earlier this month. Governor Roy Cooper proclaimed a special day for homosexuals and other sexual minorities so they wouldn't feel left out – and, according to a report in The Christian Post, it came after an LGBTQ member of the State House requested the observance:

"Mother's and Father's Day celebrations often exclude gender-expansive parents, neglecting the valuable roles they play in the lives of their children," wrote State Rep. Vernetta Alston. "Becoming a more inclusive state will require … making the lived experiences of LGBTQ+ people more visible. This proclamation does that."

Alston is in a same-sex "marriage" and parents two children.

North Carolina resident Dr. Alex McFarland – a Christian apologist and founder of Truth for a New Generation – says it would be too strong to say he celebrated the observance on December 6.

"I would acknowledge Gender Expansive Parents' Day by thanking God that, in spite of this world of delusion, His Holy Spirit is still making people aware of truth," McFarland shares.

That truth, McFarland says, is that God created mothers and fathers and tasked them with raising children. And he notes that the North Carolina Charter says the state looks to God and His Truth to preserve the state.

"So, when you play into the hands of the moral relativists, not only is that merely pandering to left-wing activist groups but it's undermining the constitution," he argues.

So, how did a traditionally conservative, religious state come to such an observance? McFarland contends it's because the first line of defense – the churches and the pastors – are not courageously proclaiming truth.

"Most pastors are B-grade motivational speakers rather than prophets calling forth the righteous of God and sinners to repentance," McFarland concludes.

The executive director of the North Carolina-based Christian Action League describes the governor's proclamation as "tragic" and based on the false teaching that same-sex marriage and same-sex parenting are "just as moral and beneficial as natural marriage and natural parenting." Rev. Mark Creech states it is "a form of cultural heresy that works to undermine the nation's core strength – the character of the family."
