Over my 29+ years of parenting experience, I have been grateful to the many caring and dedicated physicians who have assisted our family.
So when I read about the recent policy statement issued by the American Academy of Pediatricians (AAP), I was quite shocked.
AAP expects their members to assure lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and questioning (LGBTQ) adolescents that “being LGBTQ is normal, just different.” I encourage you to take a look at this article.
Surely not all physicians will comply with these guidelines! Surely not all among us will openly embrace the indoctrination of these LGBTQ sexual beliefs!
But surely, as a parent of multiple teenagers, I’d better be aware of these official guidelines!
So, can I trust my pediatrician? Well, perhaps not without investigation!
And what an interesting display of terminology. Heterosexism. Homophobia. I object to these words, how about you?
We are being labeled with the trendy new pejorative heterosexist. This word implies that there something wrong with the Biblical world view that God created sex to be enjoyed between one man and one woman within marriage. (There isn’t.)
We embrace the Bible's clear standards on homosexuality as sin, but that does not make us phobic (irrationally fearful) . On the contrary, we do not fear those with same-sex attractions, or their lobby. We choose instead to fear the Lord, and honor what He says. These are two of the most rational actions that a human being can take.
What should we do now, parents?
Since we are the ones who make decisions about health care for our children, perhaps our doctors need to hear from us.
