Isn’t it obvious that the “Gender Identity” discussion was brought about by the Enemy of Our souls?

Intense Debate, Close Voting as Gender Identity, Sexual Orientation, Digital-age Privacy Take Centre Stage in Third Committee
Delegates Approve 12 Draft Resolutions for Action by General Assembly
Sexual orientation and gender identity, as well as issues of privacy in the digital age, were the subjects of close votes and contentious debate today in the Third Committee (Social, Humanitarian and Cultural) as it sent 12 draft resolutions to the General Assembly.
Among the texts most debated was a draft taking note of the Human Rights Council report and recommendations, approved as amended by a recorded vote of 94 in favour, to 3 against (Belarus, Israel, Mauritius), with 80 abstentions. Its approval came after the narrow passage — by 84 recorded votes in favour, to 77 against, with 17 abstentions — of an amendment deleting the original text’s operative paragraph 2.
At issue was the Human Rights Council’s decision 32/2, taken in June, to appoint an Independent Expert on protection against violence and discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity.
Botswana’s representative, on behalf of the African Group, had submitted the original draft proposing to defer consideration of and action on that decision to the General Assembly’s seventy-second session to allow for more time for consultations. Noting that the terms “sexual orientation” and “gender identity” were not enshrined in international law, he said the independent expert mandate lacked the required specificity to be carried out fairly.
Countries mainly from Latin America and Western States opposed that deferral in an amendment deleting the draft’s call for it. Discussion of the amendment opened a debate on the protection against violence and discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity, as well as on the potential procedural consequences of reopening a Human Rights Council decision.
Slovakia’s representative, speaking on behalf of the European Union, warned that opening a decision of the Human Rights Council would undermine its functioning. Liechtenstein’s representative, speaking on behalf of several other countries, supported the mandate of the Independent Expert, as it reflected a commitment to the prevention of violence. Singapore’s representative, meanwhile, said the issue hinged on whether the General Assembly could pronounce on the work of the Council, a subsidiary body. He opposed the amendment, as it was important to reaffirm the Assembly’s legitimacy to do so, explaining that his position was not a statement about the substance of the mandate. Singapore respected all persons, regardless of gender identity.
In the afternoon, the Committee took action on 10 draft resolutions, putting to a recorded vote one on the right of the Palestinian people to self-determination, which passed by 170 votes in favour to 7 against (Canada, Israel, Marshall Islands, Micronesia, Nauru, Palau and the United States), with 5 abstentions (Cameroon, Côte d’Ivoire, Honduras, Tonga and Vanuatu).
A draft resolution on “Promotion of a democratic and equitable international order” was approved by a recorded 123 votes in favour to 53 against, with 6 abstentions (Armenia, Chile, Costa Rica, Greece, Mexico and Peru), while a draft on the right to development was approved by a vote of 138 in favour, to 3 against (Israel, United Kingdom, United States), with 39 abstentions. – source

When I was a young girl, my parents could always find me outside playing football with the boys. I loved all kinds of sports – it didn’t matter to me that I was the only girl playing them. If I had grown up today, I might have been flagged as a “confused child” who truly should have been a boy. To me this is ludicrous.
As I got older, I enjoyed so much being a girly-girl. I was born a girl, but just happened to be really terrific at sports! God made no mistake when He made me a girl!
Brethren, the devil has his minions out in full force. He knows how short his time is on this earth. The pervasive Evil on the earth is now so thick, it is truly hard for us to fathom – especially those who belong to the Lord Jesus Christ. We need only to read God’s prophetic word to see that these time must come before the end.
How despicable that the enemy has targeted children, who really have no say in their public classrooms. They are fed lies by the Leftist demon possessed teachers, and if the children are not hearing the Word of God in their homes – they are spiritually defenseless.
We are at a time in Biblical history when prayer is truly our greatest and most powerful weapon against the forces of evil. Prayer truly has always been of utmost importance to the child of God, but those who are Watchmen in these days, know this more than ever before. The Word of God is equally important.
We MUST dress for battle:
“Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might. Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places. Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.”
“Stand therefore, having girded your waist with truth, having put on the breastplate of righteousness, and having shod your feet with the preparation of the gospel of peace; above all, taking the shield of faith with which you will be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked one. And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God; praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, being watchful to this end with all perseverance and supplication for all the saints” (Ephesians 6:10-18).
