The Privilege and Cost of Courageous Compassion

A woman starring off, The privilege and cost of courageous compassion

I appreciate the American impulse to protect and support the rights of minorities, in this case the transgender population. And I want to state clearly that God loves all people, whatever their sexual orientation or gender identity (John 3:16). We are all broken people (Romans 3:23). We are all loved by the God who is love (1 John 4:8).

At the same time, transgender Americans constitute only 0.6 percent of our population. How do we also protect the rights of the majority?
