The BBC Embraces Gender Confusion

The BBC is a cherished institution here in the UK. In recent years as so many in our society have embraced LGBTQ+ culture, the media has been under increasing pressure to be politically correct, even while matters of gender and sexuality identification have become increasingly absurd.

There has been a marked increase in programming on the BBC that supports the LGBTQ+ agenda. For example, the Queer Britain series, Britain’s Gay Footballers, It’s Not Unusual: A Lesbian and Gay History, I’m Coming Out, and much more.

I’m concerned that our sexually corrupt culture has infiltrated the BBC to the extent that the organisation has decided to redefine what gender is. As a Christian who believes the Bible is God’s Word, I look to Scripture for my moral guidance. We read in the book of Genesis:

“So God created man in His own image; in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them.”

But when I set up an account with the BBC recently I was asked to choose my gender from the following options:

The BBC is playing God! There’s no other way to put it. There is no gender other than male or female, so this drop down menu is a farce.

Without moral guidance from God, we live in a society where ‘anything goes’. There’s nothing to say we shouldn’t be having sex with family members, or with animals, or with dead people. Do you see the problem?

Things have gotten completely out of control. It’s clear to me that God is exercising judgment upon those nations that embrace moral chaos, as we see with the declining position of the UK in terms of political standing and power. A society that abandons God will be judged harshly, as anyone who has read the Bible from cover to cover will understand.

I pray that God will raise up godly leaders in the UK to reclaim the moral ground that has been lost in the name of pride and the worship of promiscuity. Lord, forgive us, help us, and please do not forsake our nation.

  1. You might believe that the Bible is God’s Word but that does not mean everyone else does. If you want to have the right to your beliefs then extend that right to others.
    I am deeply concerned at the mental, emotional and social damage that the children of same-sex couples suffer. Shame!
    I am an absolutely straight man, so I am not in a position to speak from the perspective of a gay or lesbian person.
    Why does religion create such hate, such a sense of self-superiority? Why does religion want to create a class of lesser beings, of separate communities. Where is their love and compassion, their concern for the wellbeing of their fellows?

    1. Hi Doug! Of course everyone has choice, and we should defend the right to freedom of speech vigorously (for Christians and for LGBTQ+ people and people of all beliefs). Jesus taught a peaceful way, and I hope that I would never be aggressive or abusive towards another human being, regardless of their beliefs. I have actually found certain individuals who support the LGBTQ+ agenda to be aggressive and abusive, which is wrong, so it’s important to speak out about this.

      My motivation for speaking out about these issues comes from a belief that God’s Word is truth (which is a claim the Bible makes about itself). Also, God has revealed to me that this is so. I see the Bible as like a guidebook or manual for mankind, teaching us about truth and about how to be in right relationship with Him. It also warns us about the wrath that awaits us if we reject His way, and I don’t want anyone to go to hell. Also, the Bible commands believers to preach the gospel, so I want to be obedient.

      True Christians don’t feel a sense of superiority, they actually feel lowly and humble before God. We are in awe of God’s tremendous power – a power to elevate us to heaven or cast us down into hell. The problem comes when people believe, out of pride, that they have a right to ignore God and go their own way. God is very forgiving, but ultimately there is going to be a judgment day (according to the Bible) and I want as many of my LGBTQ+ friends to be saved as possible.

  2. It is not popular to speak up for righteousness. Of course those that do not believe in the Word of God will not understand your opinion or agree with that truth. Mankind will always only want to do what is right in their own eyes. But as we, as believers, grow closer to the Lord we grow more aware of our sin because his light exposes it. That is why people want to shut it down. No one wants to be told they are sinning. But the joy of it is that God’s light doesn’t just expose our sins, his light sets us free so we can actually see that it was sin. It is okay that everyone doesn’t believe the same way. BUT IF you call yourself a believer of Jesus Christ follow his example. There in liesthe problem. Those that are not Christians do not have the light. But those that have chosen Christ as their Lord must choose. Do I follow my savior and his word or do I turn my back and follow my own desires? You can’t have it both ways. Great article.

    1. Excellent points Beehopper and very well put – I’m in wholehearted agreement. The main issue is people defending their sin and their pride, rather than hating their sin and their pride. I believe God wants us to be humble, and read His Word for what it says, rather than what makes us feel better about ourselves. I’ve been happy to completely change my way of life for the sake of the gospel (and with the help of the Holy Spirit) because there is a greater joy in pleasing God than in fulfilling fleshly desire.

  3. I was born a male heterosexual. It was not a choice that I made. Our children did not choose to be heterosexual, nor did their children. I did not choose to have heterosexual parents, and the same applies to the rest of our family. I did not choose my genes. I have no knowledge of the lifestyle of either lesbians and/or of homosexuals. The thought of homosexuality is completely foreign to me.

    The choice I do make is to defend the right of people who wish to express love. I choose respect over bigotry. I want respect and as the Golden Rule says, I extend to others that which I wish they would extend to me.

    The picture of a clown at the head of the article does not reflect the true esteem that is held for lesbians and homosexuals who are prominent leaders in public life, whether in the past or in the present, whether in business, politics, the arts, and so on. Give the article a serious tone by showing pictures of those people and show their role in society and their contribution to it. Also, pictures of children of same-sex couples that you wish to attack would have been more appropriate.

    Here in Australia we have lesbian and homosexual politicians and business leaders who are held in high regard, just as you do in your own country. Their orientations are irrelevant to their acceptance, and it does not mean they have poor parenting skills.

    Recently an Indonesian court sentenced a homosexual couple to a public whipping, in the name of religion. Words are also a form of whipping.

    I am concerned for the children who are well cared for and loved by same-sex parents. Please do not create an unbearable environment for them. A heterosexual relationship does not guarantee love and stability. Each week here in Australia on average a woman is murdered by her husband or ex-husband.

    Your assumption that the Bible is the “word of God” because it might say so is a pure circular reasoning. Besides, the Bible did not exist until centuries after those words were written. The Bible is relevant only to people who believe it is relevant.

    Yes, I have made a choice. I have chosen that the Bible presents the uninformed opinions of superstitious Middle Eastern communities. And before the term “anti-Semitic” is thrown at me, my AncestryDNA analysis records me as 100% European Jewish. In 1942, my mother’s parents were gassed near Opole while my father’s parents were shot near Minsk, along with their daughter and her son, because they were Jews. The Nazis behaved the same murderous ways with homosexuals, so perhaps that is why I express tolerance.

    1. Hi Doug! Thanks for your comment 🙂

      The picture at the head of the article is not of a clown, I’m not sure what you mean by that. If you’ve seen the pride parades in London (maybe in Australia too), you would know that someone adorned in this way would not be out of place, so I do think it’s an appropriate image to accompany the article.

      I am commanded by Jesus to love my neighbour, and by God’s grace I do. You have to understand that my concern for sexual sin does not come from a place of hatred – I speak out on these issues because I want to see people who are experiencing gender confusion set free and saved. There is not a different rule for homosexuals – they must repent, believe in the gospel, and be baptised, and receive the Holy Spirit, and then live a sanctified life, just like any ‘straight’ person must do, if they wish to follow Jesus.

      It sounds as though you have a very low view of Scripture, which I don’t, partly because Jesus Himself had a very high view of Scripture and was constantly quoting from what we now call the Old Testament. I’m not sure where you get your morality from if not from the Bible? How do we find out about Jesus if not from the Bible? And if you don’t follow Jesus, are you really a Christian?

      “Do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived. Neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor homosexuals, nor sodomites, nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners will inherit the kingdom of God.” (1 Corinthians 6:9-10)

  4. Thank you for this comment. It helps me explain what is hidden in my heart. I so long for those close to me to understand that I DO NOT HATE. I care so much for them that I want them free. Jesus cared so much for us that HE DIED to set us free. That is real love and real sacrifice. I’ve simply been praying for truth to expose any lies. Romans chapter one states that because people suppressed the truth they were given over to their lusts. It lists a number of sins that these people were given over to because they refused truth. So truth will be the key to setting each of us free. They will know the truth and the truth will set them free. (John 8)

    1. Hey Beehopper – I’ve just been meeting up with a Christian brother in a cafe, and I read out the exact passage from Romans 1 that you mentioned. I would say that’s an amazing coincidence but there are no coincidences with God! And it just goes to show we’re on the same wavelength. And I will just add to what you said that Jesus ALWAYS stuck up for the truth, like when He drove the moneychangers out of the temple – that was not hatred of those people, it was love for His Father and concern for righteousness. Also, Jesus forgave sins but He also hated sin – hence why He said to the woman caught in adultery “go and sin no more”. I believe this is the message Jesus wants to give to homosexuals – if you repent, you can receive forgiveness, but go and sin no more.

      1. Now we are the temple of the Holy Spirit. If Jesus drove out moneychangers of his day from the temple how much more we should be concerned about our bodies and/or the body of Christ to drive out sin ftom our lives. Our temples should be a house of prayer.
