Several politicians, doctors, and educators are pushing for laws that would allow the early transition of a child to the opposite sex. Children as young as 8 years old are given “puberty blockers” by doctors to treat gender dysphoria. (Heritage Foundation)

Revised Regulation 225
The revised regulation 225, section 3.0, when applied, said that if a minor student of any age wishes to self identify his/her gender (or race), the school would discuss the permitting process with the minor student. If the student did not permit the school to request permission from the parent, then the school would not do so. “This is a huge parental rights issue that means locker room, restroom, sports will all be gender-neutral, said Nicole Theis, of Delaware Family Policy Council.

An alarming LGBTQ trend
There are opposite cases where parents themselves insist that their child is a transgender. #SaveJames is the plight of a father who was barred by the court because he refuses to believe his son is gay. He wants the mother to stop dressing the young boy as a girl. Similarly in Canada, Judge Marzari orders a father to stop referring to his daughter as a girl. The 14-years old daughter asked the court to intervene.

SOGI Bill: A Biblical warning
Kids who have gender identity issues should be met with love and understanding. However, a government’s intervention does not resolve critical issues. The US-version of SOGIE Bill in the Philippines will have dire consequences. It only “pretends” to care for the LGBTQ community, but in reality, it aims to destroy families.
The Bible commands children to submit to the authority of the parents. Towards the end times, the Bible warns that children will be disobedient and against their parents (2 Timothy 3). Thus, the need for parents to love and develop a lasting relationship with their children is a must.
