Trans Lives Matter Group Floods Oklahoma Capitol Over Gender Reassignment Bills

(Charisma News Archives)

Over a hundred Trans Lives Matter protesters flooded the Oklahoma State Capitol recently, reacting to Senate Bills 129 and 122, which would ban health care services and physicians from providing gender reassignment surgeries to anyone under the age of 26 and keep anyone under the age of 18 from seeking a gender reassignment procedure.

The Trans Lives Matter group was found in the capitol chanting “Trans lives matter,” and “This is our house,” as reported by Newsweek.

It was at this time that Governor Kevin Stitt spoke on Bill 122, stating, “As governor, I will never shy away from calling out right from wrong.”

Bill 129 is very clear about the potential legal ramifications that could come for those who are involved with gender reassignment surgeries, especially on minors.

“A physician or other healthcare professional found to have knowingly referred for or provided gender transition procedures to an individual under twenty-six (26) years of age shall, upon conviction, be guilty of a felony.” Bill 129 also reads: “Any referral for or provision of gender transition procedures to an individual under twenty-six (26) years of age is unprofessional conduct and shall, upon an adverse ruling by the appropriate licensing board, result in immediate revocation of the license or certificate of the physician or other healthcare professional.”

Conservative voice Charlie Kirk spoke out on Twitter about the event, writing: “So can radical protesters now occupy government buildings without being accused of an insurrection?”

This incident comes just over two years after the January 6 Capitol revolt where supporters of former president Donald Trump went into the Capitol to stop the certification of Joe Biden’s presidency after suspicious polling incidents across the nation during the election.

Now, many on the right are wondering if those who were part of this recent capitol storming will suffer similar consequences as those from the Jan. 6 insurrection received, or if democratic favoritism will support the Trans Lives Matter group because of their political affiliation.

Not The Bee tweeted: “Trans activists stormed the Oklahoma State Capitol yesterday, but for some reason you haven’t heard about it from the media.”

“Trans activists stormed the Oklahoma state capital to defend their right to castrate, sterilize and mutilate children. This is not only an insurrection but easily the most bizarre and disgusting one in history,” Matt Walsh shared.

Beyond the political debate about how the protestors should be held responsible for their actions, it’s important to remember that young children and teens are especially susceptible to the lies of the enemy telling them it’s ok to change from one gender to another. Instead, we need to be reminding them that they were already created in the image of God. He is not a God who makes mistakes, and so He did not make a mistake creating them either male or female. He not only formed them in their mother’s womb and knew them before the foundations of the earth (Eph. 1:4), but He has intended that every single person’s body would be a temple of the Holy Spirit. First Corinthians 6:19-20 (MEV) reads: “What? Do you not know that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God, and that you are not your own? You were bought with a price. Therefore glorify God in your body and in your spirit, which are God’s.”

Instead of affirming a lie to young people that they will be happier in a desecrated form, we must share the truth about how much God loves them, and what He laid down for them. Just like the rest of us, those trapped in transgenderism are seeking truth, love and acceptance. It’s time to share the only love that can give any real purpose and meaning.
