Professor Robert Gagnon points out challenges to Biden’s Transgender executive order
Facebook suspended a Christian university professor after he voiced his disagreement over President Biden’s executive order. This order would permit trans-identifying individuals to serve in the military.
not one, but two voices quickly silenced..
Robert Gagnon teaches New Testament theology at Houston Baptist University. He is a well-known, and well-respected authority on sexuality. Facebook banned Gagnon after posting a comment in defence of a friend’s satirical comment regarding Biden’s recent executive order.
Gagnon’s account experienced a 24 hours suspension for incitement to violence.
Gagnon’s post suggested that the order would endanger women. He further stated that those who promote transgenderism may be allowing males to invade women’s athletics and shelters. He compared transgender ideology to a “religious cult” similar to a “pseudo-science” forcing people to reject basic biology.
“Only one point of view is being allowed,” he commented. “Trump was not the great danger to the Republic. Left-wing canceling is.”
Censorship in the making?
After the suspension was lifted, Gagnon posted, ““We are in the midst of rapidly accelerating public censorship of our views (with compelled speech) but we are not the victims. Neat trick.”
Additionally, Laurie Higgins (Illinois Family Institute) is also banned from Facebook. She expressed her frustration in a Facebook comment wherein she remarked on women who serve in the Armed Forces will now have to shower and bunk with males as a result of this order.
Higgins goes on to refer to transgender advocacy as a “cult” spreading “alchemical pseudo-science”. Laurie states that it accuses Republicans of being science deniers.
As a result, Higgins was banned for seven days. Higgins is still locked out of her account, according to the Christian Post.
Conservative critics of this executive order say that the change imperils military readiness resulting in catastrophic consequences.
