So God created man in His own image; in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them.That sentence says that we are all equal in the eyes of God, no matter what. A British court has now ruled the following:
“Belief in Genesis 1:27, lack of belief in transgenderism and conscientious objection to transgenderism in our judgment are incompatible with human dignity and conflict with the fundamental rights of others, specifically here, transgender individuals ... (I)n so far as those beliefs form part of (a) wider faith, (that) wider faith also does not satisfy the requirement of being worthy of respect in a democratic society, not incompatible with human dignity and not in conflict with the fundamental rights of others.”Well, OK then. Looks like we can get back to the fun stuff. Imperialism, slavery, mass slaughter, pillaging, looting and anything else we want. After all, that dork next to you is not your equal. He's just some dork who might have something you'd like to take.
If you listen to MLK speeches, removing Genesis 1:27 removes the first principle upon which his Civil Rights movement was based. MLK pointed out the hypocrisy of Christians professing Genesis 1:27 and then practicing racism. That contradiction permeated the debates over slavery in Britain and America throughout the centuries and led to its abolition.
Without that single verse in the Bible, we can, perhaps, fall back on evolution and Charles Darwin.
Darwin penned plenty of material suggesting that natural selection would apply to human races as well as animals. Oh well. I'm sure the Ivy League chappies will find something splendid to replace Christianity. In the meantime, it might be a good idea to find a strong group to join, if only for protection.
