An organization that supports military chaplains and their freedom of religion is applauding President Trump for rolling back an Obama-era policy that allowed transgenders to serve openly in the armed forces.
A federal judge in Maryland has lifted an injunction against President Trump's transgender ban, clearing the way for the administration to implement its broad restrictions on transgender military service.
Transgenders believe they are the opposite sex of their natural, biological birth, a condition now often called “gender dysphoria” after the American Psychiatric Association dropped the medical term “gender identity disorder” under pressure form LGBT activists, who considered it demeaning despite the existence of an obvious psychological condition.
The Pentagon panel of experts reported 30,000 mental health visits between October 2015 and October 2017 – a 300%increase – plus lengthy absences for hormone treatments and surgeries, and high rates of mental health conditions such as anxiety, depression, and substance use disorders. Sadly, suicide rates were found to be eight times higher than for service members as a whole, even after sex-change hormone treatments or surgeries.
Regardless of what term transgenders use, Wright tells OneNewsNow that God made us male or female.
“So it's a direct lie to refute what God has made and say, No, he made a mistake,” says the retired army chaplain. “God is perfect and he doesn't make mistakes."
