Similac wants you to feel free to buy their formula.  No surprise. 

But beware.  This company has jumped with both feet into the “open” cesspool of “anything goes, make your own rules.”  That’s the formula for life they are serving up in their recent video  The End #MommyWars Film: the Judgment Stops Here.

When I saw the new video campaign that is trending, purportedly aimed at helping moms feel loved, encouraged and included, I was intrigued. I wondered how an infant formula company was going to tackle this sensitive issue that you would hope someone other than them would address!

 I truly believe the #MommyWars, as the producers term them, have hurt so many of our hearts. Comparison is a dangerous game as the Bible clearly states in  2 Corinthians 10:12.

Breast feeding or bottle feeding

Spacing of  children

Number of children

Cloth diapers versus paper

How to schedule your baby's life

What to do with the nursery....

These questions give way over the years to ....how to educate your child, what to do about extra- curricular activities and how to handle a teenager. 

God gave parents the freedom and opportunity to lead and direct their own children. Believing there is only "one way" on "non-moral issues" can lead us into a ditch. So please understand I am clearly in agreement of the initial premise of this video... 

However....if you watch the statements made on camera....those are not the only issues that are being reframed in this video! 

Besides the obvious motivation for the sale of baby formula, this video attempts to link issues of people objecting to the normalization of raising a child as “transgender” and a child born outside of marriage  to the issues of nursery paint, employment and baby milk.

It is designed to hit on a very sensitive mama emotion, but then slide in sexuality issues and the remaking of the definition of "family" and gender as if these issues are on the same plane!

I find it insulting that they thought I wouldn’t notice. (And yes, I imagine I will get the comments saying I am "hating" someone by acknowledging what is happening here in these ads. To which I will respond in advance: no way. No hate here. Just good honest evaluation of immorality.)

 One of the moms says “It doesn’t matter what other people think is right or wrong, it’s up to you.”  That’s the take-away point the producers want to leave in your mind.  It doesn’t matter what other people think about you not breast feeding, being a single mom, or raising a “gender-neutral” rainbow child.  You decide what is right for you. 

And what about God?  He is so far off their radar they could not imagine that He would have anything relevant to say about any of these issues.

I am so sad. I want with all my heart to end these #MommyWars.  But not on these terms. Not by using politically correct manipulation!

Tragically, this video is a near miss...but a big hit to millennial parents. Similac must know what will sell?? Hitting on American mom insecurities and shifting morals at the same time!

I suggest you take a look at the video and the many other funny ones they are bringing out in this #endmommywars campaign and notice what I am seeing. This video is very appealing to young moms and girls.

" the boy's mother tells us he decided he was a girl when he saw a "transgender" propaganda video 3 years ago. "

I caught someone's Facebook share of Matt Walsh's comments yesterday, and that phrase jumped out from this story.

Read Matt’s disturbing piece about a gender-confused boy and his abusive mother who is poisoning him here

Over the last few weeks I've had the most amazing time writing a new book. That's why you haven't been hearing from me as much!

One of the things I've been researching is the effectiveness of progressivism propaganda over popular thought. Surely this issue of transgenderism takes the cake on irrational belief systems.

How can people who know so much about science and DNA believe that a few hormone shots and mutilation surgeries can change something as complex as gender.

When I read this quote about a child being influenced by transgender "propaganda" it confirmed what I have been concerned about.

Normalization.

Did you know that is a very effective propaganda technique? Speaking about something frequently enough especially if it is a big lie will begin to break down resistance to the new idea. The Nazis employed the big lie technique frequently.

Parents, I suggest we keep talking about this issue. I know it seems like we shouldn't need to, we've already talked about it, and there's nothing more to say.

But the fact is our kids are being hammered on an issue designed to get them to let loose of boundaries that are even greater than male and female.

Please pray for this child. And pray that these parents will not be permitted to give dangerous hormones to children!
