Nothing wrong with medical surgery procedures that are intended to preserve and or extend the life of a individual. But a surgery procedure (such as transgooberism surgery) which is done purely with the sole intent of turning the human body into a perverse freak of nature is wrong. A person who suffers from a mental illness does not need a transgooberism surgery but rather they need intensive mental help.
The treatments used for trans people have been proven to greatly improve their sense of self worth, comfort with their body, and reduce the suicide rate in a part of society with an abnormally high suicide rate.

So transgooberism surgery does save lives and by your own definition is good surgery

They tried it your way for generations, and it made people worse.

actually I don't think he is a christian at all. I wold say more a claim to be Christian that gives Christianity a bad name. The comment of
"transgooberism surgery" is an example of that. Also the example stating who should or should not have surgery.

Ecc 11:5
As thou knowest not what is the way of the spirit, nor how the bones are joined together in the womb of her that is with child: so thou knowest not the works of God, who is the maker of all.

That verse is pretty clear that humans done know the mind or actions of God.. Perhaps that is part of the reason it is also demanded that Christians not Judge..

He's obviously a tool of the Christian Supremacists who have no compunction against using slander and lies to promote their Dominionist philosophy.

Either that, or maybe HE's the one infected by a demon?

I thought you all didn't believe in things like: transgender, gays, gay marriage, poligamy, sex, etc?

Now you are embracing a TG minister? WTF? Make your mind up. You are either for or you are against? I suppose you could be in the middle. Like the meat of a sandwich.

So, you might be supportive of the preacher who screws all the wives as long as he doesn't screw all the husbands too?
