John Calvin puts forward a very simple reason why love is the greatest gift: “Because faith and hope are our own: love is diffused among others.” In other words, faith and hope benefit the possessor, but love always benefits another. In John 13:34–35 Jesus says, “A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.” Love always requires an “other” as an object; love cannot remain within itself, and that is part of what makes love the greatest gift.

A solution to the restroom problem

Recommended Posts

In the past it was taken for granted that all public restrooms and dressing rooms were for the exclusive use of one sex, either men or women.  The transgender movement has changed this.  People who perceive themselves to be of the opposite gender from their biological one are demanding to be allowed to use the restrooms of their perceived identity and many legislatures and courts are supporting their demands.  They claim that barring transgenders from using the restroom of their choice is discrimination.  They overlook the fact that allowing them to follow their choice discriminates against those who don’t want to share restrooms with the opposite sex.  Also, allowing men access to women’s restrooms and dressing rooms exposes women to the risk of sexual assault.

 

Perhaps we could solve this problem by basing restroom access on anatomy rather than sex.  The restroom you are allowed to use would depend on whether you have a penis or a vagina.  This would not be discriminatory because restroom access would not be determined by whether you identify yourself as male or female or whether you consider yourself to be of no gender at all.

 

Of course it is unlikely that such a commonsense solution will ever be adopted.  We are living in a time when too many legislators and judges simply don’t have any common sense.

theophilus, Your suggestion is packed full of problems, and let me tell you a few. Just suppose a person who was hugely overweight, who started out thinking they were the opposite sex, Their belly was so big they really forgot which sex they really were and they can't see over their massive over hanging belly. Now just what are these poor over rought souls to do?

 

I tell ya there are so many people who one thought they were men, and then felt like a woman, then back and forth they went, and now the can't even remember what they thought they were.

 

Perhaps just have one big restroom with big stalls with doors and everyone uses it?

Not everyone owns a pickup, much less a vehicle that would be able to haul a trailer that would be able to hold a port-o-let.

 

The idea that just because an individual can't see what they are equipped with does not mean they have no idea how it exits their body.  They have to, at some point stand in front of a mirror in all their glory to remove any doubt what God blessed them with.

 

The whole psychological aspect of this "debate" should really be tossed out, and as @theophilus pointed out, should be based on the tools at hand, not some crazy notion satan has put in these peoples' heads.
