Understanding and Responding to Transgender Ideology, with Frank Turek

In today’s episode of The Natasha Crain Podcast, we are going deep on a subject that I’ve long been wanting to address on this show: understanding and responding to transgender ideology. You’ve probably noticed that it seems everything is about transgender issues today. Why, exactly, is that (spoiler alert: it’s not a fluke)? Why is everyone talking about transgenderism in particular? Why are we seeing an explosion of people identifying as trans? What’s even involved in the transition process, in particular for the growing number of teens who are pursuing a gender change? What about the popular claim that if we don’t support transitions, people will commit suicide? How, as Christians, do we respond to all of this in truth and love?

There’s much more to this subject than the question of pronouns.

Author, speaker, and radio show host Dr. Frank Turek is joining me today to talk about all of these questions and many more—including a bunch of personal questions about transgender issues that were submitted by people who follow my Facebook author page. This is a long episode, but if you want to better understand what’s going on with this huge movement, it’s going to be well worth your time.

Frank is the author of several books, including the award-winning Legislating Morality and I Don’t Have Enough Faith to be an Atheist.  As the president of CrossExamined.org, Frank is a dynamic speaker who presents over 100 times per year, often at secular college campuses.  He has a large social media presence, a weekly TV show, and a radio show/podcast called I Don’t Have Enough Faith to be an Atheist that is broadcast on 180 stations twice each week.

Frank has just released the third edition of his book Correct, Not Politically Correct: About Same-Sex Marriage and Transgenderism. He’s updated it with a brand new section dedicated to addressing the transgender topic specifically. In the book, Frank shows that the quest to obliterate all sexual distinctions is self-contradictory, and the march to transition children is producing horrific and irreversible consequences.
