Yes Pat Robertson, I’m Transgender and Proud

June 17, 2009 ·

Pat Robertson spouting off about Barack Obama’s announcement of a “Presidential Memorandum on Federal Benefits and Non-Discrimination” asked “someone’s proud to be transgendered?

His historical record seems a bit off, since the fall of Rome happened when it WAS A CHRISTIAN NATION.
So to answer you Pat, yes we are proud. Many of us are unashamedly transgender. If you would read your Bible, you’d know that:

Isaiah 56:

4 For this is what the LORD says:
“To the eunuchs who keep my Sabbaths,
who choose what pleases me
and hold fast to my covenant-

5 to them I will give within my temple and its walls
a memorial and a name
better than sons and daughters;
I will give them an everlasting name
that will not be cut off.
