Religion: Chaz Bono deserves a chance too

According to a Chicago Sun-Times column captioned:

“Not to worry: Chaz Bono’s dancing won’t make viewers change genders”

When ABC-TV announced Chaz Bono would be on the next season of “Dancing with the Stars,” their website was flooded with negative comments.

“I am floored, flabbergasted and appalled that ABC would even consider Chaz/Chastity as a ‘star’ for the show,” wrote one fan. “Star? How is she a star?”

“No matter what that fat lady did to her body she will remain what she was born to be … Chaz Bono will be dancing with a woman? Hoooo. I’ve never seen it before, two women on a dance floor.”

“I hope and pray ABC will come to their senses by NOT promoting this medically and mentally dangerous path to our neighbors, especially our children.”

Indeed! Cuz you know children are going to watch a dance competition show and see Chaz in action and think, I’m gonna change genders, too! Uh-huh.

“ABC has been pushing the gay lifestyle … the push now to accept transgender is just too much for me to bear. I will watch the first episode to see who advertises … and through Twitter and Facebook will urge friends and friends of friends to boycott not only your show, but your network and all those who advertise with you.”

The authors of those comments seem to forget that we are all sinners before God and not one of us is worthy of His grace. Yet he died so that we can live.

John chapter 8:1-11 (KJV) is a great story we can all learn something from.

1 Jesus went unto the Mount of Olives.

2 And early in the morning he came again into the temple, and all the people came unto him; and he sat down, and taught them.

3 And the scribes and Pharisees brought unto him a woman taken in adultery; and when they had set her in the midst,

4 They say unto him, Master, this woman was taken in adultery, in the very act.

5 Now Moses in the law commanded us, that such should be stoned: but what sayest thou?

6 This they said, tempting him, that they might have to accuse him. But Jesus stooped down, and with his finger wrote on the ground, as though he heard them not.

7 So when they continued asking him, he lifted up himself, and said unto them, He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone at her.

8 And again he stooped down, and wrote on the ground.

9 And they which heard it, being convicted by their own conscience, went out one by one, beginning at the eldest, even unto the last: and Jesus was left alone, and the woman standing in the midst.

10 When Jesus had lifted up himself, and saw none but the woman, he said unto her, Woman, where are those thine accusers? hath no man condemnedthee?

11 She said, No man, Lord. And Jesus said unto her, Neither do I condemnthee: go, and sin no more.
