What is Transgender Theology?

That actually does explain a lot of Azusa's theology.

I'm trying to imagine some of my theology professors doing the same thing...

Ackley was born a "Heather" and is now living as a H. Adam.

Hoping to shed more light than heat..

Diversity event at work this quarter:

  • I knew I could not handle it "live" in the training room and so I dialed in (wise plan)
  • A U speaker on Transgender people and issues
  • Starts with a questionnaire (15 questions)
  • Q1: What gender do you identify?
  • Q2: Why? 

I was IM'ing a co-worker ... we could barely contain ourselves. 

I "multiplexed" during the remainder (read: browsed the Internet)

“People assumed that I’ve done something, some sex act,” he said. “I’m not violating any sexual conduct and it’s embarrassing that it’s implied. I live a very chaste life.”

But it's ok for her to get a divorce because her husband wants her to stay a woman, which constitutes "Christian transphobia."  

Seems to me that even if "transgendered identity" is one of the consequences of the Fall, her voluntary marriage vows trump her involuntary biology.

I have a relative who works at APU, and he feels like the press and the professor have misrepresented the school's response. Their primary motive is not to save their donor base. She doesn't really have a contractual leg to stand on, and I think she knows it.

Because...I was "born this way"?  (Yes, I'm referencing the Lady Gaga song title here intentionally.  This will probably be the only time in my life I ever intend to reference Lady Gaga positively.)

Wow.  I guess this is what I miss by not working at major companies these days.

"Our task today is to tell people — who no longer know what sin is...no longer see themselves as sinners, and no longer have room for these categories — that Christ died for sins of which they do not think they’re guilty." - David Wells

Still waiting on Jim Peet's response to these two difficult questions...
