In our story, our 21st-century, gender dysphoric Emperor is positioned on a modern stage afront the backdrop of a present-day, PC-movement that is attempting to cow people out of their constitutional rights by rebranding religious freedom, moral convictions, and the preaching of the Gospel as “crimes” and “hate speech.” The story is followed by a two-part Afterword explaining the story within its modern context; with an apologetic aimed at both the mainstream American Church, as well as individuals trapped in the LGBTQ movement. While the book specifically cites a gender-dysphoric emperor, the aim of the book is not to attack individuals in the LGBTQ movement, but rather to highlight the overly-contrived transgender agenda being propagated upon the American people by those with little to no interest whatsoever in LGBTQ rights or the issues and challenges faced by the people involved in its movement. The book also serves as a cattle prod to the derrière of an increasingly-drowsy Church that has been lulled to sleep by decades of humorous homilies, pep talks, movie clips, and self-esteem gospel messages. The Church that once believed that “Greater love has no one than this, than he who lays down his life for his friends,” are now touting to unsaved neighbors and coworkers that, “Love means never having to say you’re sorry (for your sin).” The Gospel is not politically correct—but it is biblically correct. Christians must learn how to speak the Truth in Love. Many Christians today fall prey to speaking the truth without love; but the second failure is just as dangerous—not speaking up at all. That is why the moral of Anderson’s tale still applies today–namely, the dangers of remaining silent when our conscience convicts us to speak. Once we lose the courage to stand for our convictions, lives and liberties will be lost; and our freedoms will be forfeit. “If I were to remain silent, I’d be guilty of complicity.” — Albert Einstein
The Emperor’s New Gender
“The Emperor’s New Gender” is a short, 50-page booklet that reimagines Hans Christian Anderson’s famous children’s tale, “The Emperor’s New Clothes,” with a postmodern twist! Anderson’s tale, originally penned in 1837, still has much to teach us today concerning the woes of what is referred to in social psychology circles as pluralistic ignorance—the idea that a person who privately rejects a norm will still go along with it if they believe that everyone else believes it.
