Seriously?

Forgive me for being dense, but I don't understand this. There's a picture with no underlying narrative, so it's difficult for me to discern the point of this.

Very sad and so tragic that society continues to try to make us believe this self-destruction is a normal part of life.

This is "Chas" Bono, the person who was born as "Chastity Bono," the daughter of Sonny and Cher, who declared herself a lesbian and then recently went through sex change procedures to change from a woman to a man.

Janet, If you've managed to miss "Chaz" self promotions over the last few weeks, consider yourself lucky. What this pretty young woman has done to herself is such a tragedy.

Once again I am proven correct. Jimmy Hoffa is alive.

There is a high percentage of people who become suicidal after transgender surgery. They expect a solution to their pain, and find none even after the "change." Cher and her daughter are in great need of prayer now.

Maybe this is why the Lord delays His coming, so we can pray for these poor souls....

Carol McKinley said...

God's presence always makes itself known when we want something that is not good for our soul.

He is forever urging me to resist, sometimes with great force.

When we continue pursuing sin, at some point He hands us the keys and lets us drive the car off the cliff. Gives us our freedom. The irony of it is, we are delivered into slavery.

Joyce, you are so right that society contributes to the destruction.

Thanks M for the call for prayer.

Worcester Catholic - thanks for the chuckle.

Caroline - the delay is definitely Mercy.

This is so tragic. Back in the 80s the media cheered Cher on with her debauchery. Nobody remembered the litle girl and nobody asked what it was like for her to grow up in a house with one man after another wandering out of the bedrooms. Chastity herself said that the only person who showed any concen was one of the gay members of her mother's entourage. I think the poor girl is made herslef ugly as a defense.

Dympha, I also couldn't help but think about the young woman who started out with Sonny. The culture egged her on in much of the same ways they are egging Charlie Sheen on. Sheen is a more dramatic example because Hollywood has descended further into the abyss of insanity. 'reality tv' never caught on here in the McKinley household because I was a constant reminder that it was 'dysfunction' and watching it for entertainment was cruel.

Remember that movie when she played a morally loose woman, druggie, drunk and her son had to deal with the consequences of her behavior? There's an example when art can sometimes be a caricature of life.

I always marveled at the choice of naming her Chastity. This particular issue makes me so sad. There are people close to me who struggle with it. Prayer, prayer, and sacrifice. And love! Its all anybody ever seems to be searching for. Jesus, love this girl back to wholeness!
