The large majority of the populous in this country are Christian. I myself am Christian. My belief system explicity states “Thou shall not bear false witness.” The Bible consistently teaches us that lying is not of god. We are to separate ourselves from lies and deceit. Lies and deceit are, according to biblical teaching, sinful and the purview of satan. With that being said there is a movement to make it illegal to consistently refer to someone by the pronoun other than what they believe themselves to be even if their genetic code dictates otherwise. Partially enacted in California’s SB 219. https://leginfo.legislature.ca.gov/faces/billTextClient.xhtml?bill_id=201720180SB219 So my question is does my belief in a religious doctrine that explicitly prohibits me from deceit and false truths supercede the individual’s gender identity preference and desire to be referred to as something they’re not?
