Last week, I wrote a column on the public shaming of feminist Meghan Murphy. I noted that shouting crowd outside the Toronto Public Library made me nervous because of the sheer rage on the faces of those shouting for the head of a feminist woman who has been on board with every manifestation of the Sexual Revolution except the most recent one, the idea that biological men can become biological women.
I asked a question that I think we should consider seriously: If this is what these LGBT activists are willing to do to someone who is ideologically aligned with them on nearly everything, what will they be willing to do to us? Any thorough examination of that question should send chills down our spines.
I have more questions, as well. When I watched the video of the furious activists outside the library (one Meghan Murphy supporter was told to “go kill yourself, go bleed out and die”), I wondered: What stands between our Christian communities and that mob? What is standing between their legislative agenda, which includes condemning our beliefs as hate speech and removing our right to educate our children, and us? The courts? They have been overturning precedent and undermining religious liberty with great gusto these days (see Trinity Western University.) Political leaders? Don’t make me laugh. I doubt Doug Ford or Andrew Scheer even have the guts to say “There are only two genders” into a microphone (although I’d be happy to be proven wrong.)
