‘Transgender’ Athlete Unfairly Wins Australian Weightlifting Competition

New Zealand “transgender” weightlifter Laurel Hubbard (born “Gavin”) won the women’s over 90kg weightlifting division at the Australian International this past weekend. Though the International Olympic Committee turned a blind eye to the fact that Gavin had an unfair advantage in the sport as a biological male, several competitors complained about the unfairness. Despite the uneven playing field, Hubbard will go on to represent New Zealand at the 2017 Commonwealth Games.

John Stonestreet, with the Colson Center for Christian Worldview, said the “reaction isn’t surprising, given the Hippocratic Oath every doctor takes, vowing to ‘do no harm’ to patients. These doctors started out philosophically supportive of euthanasia . . . and then reality set in. The human conscience—and the law of God written on our hearts—are powerful things indeed.”

His views are out of step with the views of the 73 countries worldwide and of almost 40 percent of all the UN member states that currently have anti-sodomy laws.
