Of Drake and Caitlyn

Greetings, all. 

I apologize for not having posted a lot. Life has been chaotic, but I'll share that for another day. 

First of all, I'd like to explain the title of the post: "Of Drake and Caitlyn". Both refer to the topic of today's news: The first picture of the former Bruce Jenner, having had transitioned to a woman named Caitlyn Jenner. (I won't be posting the picture here, but i imagine you can find it on the Internet.) As expected, many are praising Jenner for her courage in coming out and transitioning. 

As also expected, people were not going to be happy/were going to be misunderstood, as in the case of Drake. 

Who is Drake, you may ask? Drake Bell was a Nickelodeon star. You may remember him from shows such as The Amanda Show, All That, and my personal favorite, Drake and Josh. He also voices Peter Parker/Spider-Man on the Disney XD show Ultimate Spider-Man

Well, Drake had this to say: 

As such, people got mad, forcing Bell to delete his post and try to salvage his reputation by explaining that he'd remember the legacy Jenner left as Bruce. 

Is that so wrong? Are we so politically correct, so closed-minded as to forgive and forget? No, not in the modern society we live in. 

Look, Jesus never said, "Blend in with the world, do what they do."  Never. Sure, he said to "render that to Caesar what is Caesar's", but he never said, "Look, just do what they do and you'll be fine." If you have an opinion, dear readers, don't be afraid to speak it. After all, Paul said... "And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God." (Romans 12:2; KJV)

Whatever Drake's faith/beliefs, let it be known that I support him NOT because of what he said, but rather because he spoke aloud and voiced an opinion. That's courage, not what I'm about to talk about.

As for Caitlyn, I will be praying for her/him. Believe it or not, I could care less about the "courage" he/she had for coming out and transitioning. When he/she goes out, enlists, and starts serving the country instead of self-serving him/her and the Kardashians, then I'll accept that he/she has courage. Until then, Drake shows better courage. 

One final note: The Bible never clearly says much about transgender, but I would assume it would be a sin because God created man and woman in HIS image. But, for the sake of conversation, I would love to hear your thoughts about this entire situation. Perhaps we will get somewhere better than Charisma "Everything is evil" "News". 

Catch you all on the Internet,

Nate
