Joe Biden: Discrimination Against Transgendered Americans is the “Civil Rights Issue of our Time”

What can one say? 1.2 million abortions per year, a federal government running roughshod over the First Amendment, millions of minority children trapped in failing schools, unemployment for African Americans is at 13.4 percent, and Joe Biden – Vice President of the United States and Grand Poobah of the Catholic Left – thinks that discrimination against the less-than-one-third-of-one-percent of American adults who identify as transgendered is the civil rights issue of our time.

It beggars belief.

    Abraham said, “Now that I have been so bold as to speak to the Lord, what if only twenty can be found there?”
    He said, “For the sake of twenty, I will not destroy it.”
    Then he said, “May the Lord not be angry, but let me speak just once more. What if only ten can be found there?”

    It is very tragic when people are being beat up or killed for any reason.

    That said, I think there are bigger issues than transgenderism.

    It just shows how out of touch with reality the whole democractic party is…

    Did you mean “less-than-one-third-of-a-percent”? I find it hard to believe that nearly 33% of American adults identify as transgendered.

    • Stephen White

      You are right, of course. Less than 1/3 of 1%.

          Thanks for pointing that out.

      Even .3 %, which translates to 3 in every 1000, seems like a high number. but maybe i am just out of touch

      Why does it matter how many transgendered people there are? If it one percent should we be concerned about them, or do they need to reach 10% before we care? I think Jesus would want us to care about one person.

      PS: one third of one percent of the population is over 1 MILLION PEOPLE in the United States. Why should we care about the 1 Million abortions, but not be concerned about the 1 Million transgendered people that are facing discrimination on a daily basis?

        Are you joking?

        Biden was the one who assigned the greatest importance to this issue. By your logic, do you not care about the black unemployment rate being higher than the national average?
