Joe Biden’s agenda, announced just this week, to endorse and promote transgender surgeries that mutilate the healthy body parts of children has been the target of widespread condemnation from the Christian community.
But none has been more pointed that the comments from Franklin Graham, chief of the worldwide ministry Samaritan’s Purse, which has multiple programs reaching out to and helping children specifically.
It came only a day after Fox News host Tucker Carlson revealed that the transgender movement across the U.S. is being pushed by those who profit from it – activists and lobbyists and some hospitals and pharmaceuticals.
While promoters long have argued that “transitioning” from being male to female or vice versa is essential to that person’s mental health, the reality is that nearly 42% of transgenders admit to having attempted suicide.
Graham’s remarks left no doubt about his concern for the evil he sees coming from the Biden team.
“This is vile. It’s one of the most wicked initiatives that we’ve seen come out of Washington. President Biden’s Democratic administration is endorsing sex-change operations and hormone treatments for children,” he charged on social media.
“Mutilating bodies and removing the genitalia of children is permanent. All of their manipulated research saying that it improves mental health or increases happiness is just a lie from hell. What it really does is destroy the lives and futures of these children,” he said.
He continued, “Churches and followers of Jesus Christ must stand against this evil agenda. Politicians who support this shouldn’t be in leadership, and we need to work to get them out of office in the next election—whether they’re Republican or Democrat. Speaking of regime changes—we need one in this country. What do you think?”

Biden told those individuals suffering from gender dysphoria, a condition that vanishes for vast percentages of victims if they are left alone, “I have your back.”

Biden’s HHS document claims “gender-affirming” care includes “medical, surgical, mental health, and non-medical services.”
It’s important, HHS said, because it allows “children and adolescents” to “focus on social transitions…”
It alleges that such care provides “positive outcomes for transgender and nonbinary children and adolescents,” even though virtually all who move all the way through the procedures are sterile for life and “support” is required.
“Lack of such support can result in rejection, depression, suicide, homelessness, and other negative outcomes,” HHS said.
Biden’s document calls for “social affirmation,” the use of the chemical “puberty blockers,” “hormone therapy,” as well as “‘Top’ surgery – to create male-typical chest shape or enhance breasts,” and “‘Bottom’ surgery – surgery on genitals or reproductive organs.”
In Texas, the state has declared such treatments of children child abuse, and had begun investigations before a leftist judge blocked those reviews of the treatment of vulnerable children.
WND already had reported that the Biden administration was pressing – hard – for those body mutilations that are promoted by the transgender community to be easier for anyone to get.
Eleanor Bartow, the features editor at the Federalist, explained in a report there that Biden is working to accomplish this by requiring insurers to cover surgeries – as well as hormone therapy and more.
All of those procedures, removing body parts and the like, would be considered “medically necessary” for those claiming they are the opposite sex, if Biden’s changes are adopted, the report said.
“Discrimination based on race, color, national origin, sex, age, or disability is prohibited in federally funded health-care facilities under the Affordable Care Act, passed during the Obama administration,” the report said. “A proposed rule, issued by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services on January 5, would add ‘sexual orientation and gender identity’ to that list.”
Bartow, whose has written for the Daily Caller, the American Enterprise Institute, the Congressional Quarterly and more, explained the rule puts “ideology ahead of sound medicine,” according to the Ethics and Public Policy Center.
The center charged the promotion would be “without legal support, contradicts long-standing scientific understandings of the human person, attempts to evade court injunctions, promotes harm to patients (especially minors), tramples religious freedom,” and more.
