Business tycoon Elon Musk is not afraid to speak his mind, with his opinions spanning worldwide politics, racial issues, artificial intelligence, and labor unions. He has now joined in the conversation of transgender minors and the controversy surrounding medical gender transitions.
Following a tweet from Musk last week, evangelist Franklin Graham praised Musk for his outspoken opinion.
In the tweet, Musk said, “Any parent or doctor who sterilizes a child before they are a consenting adult should go to prison for life.”
Franklin Graham Agrees With Musk — ‘This Madness Needs to Stop’
On Monday, Graham shared a news report of Musk’s tweet on his own Facebook page, supporting Musk’s opinion.
“Elon Musk spoke out to make a point about the bizarre and dangerous transgender medical treatments being performed on minors, and I appreciate that he isn’t afraid to call it like it is,” Graham wrote.
Graham continued, “It’s shameful that any adult would be part of feeding this confusion and pushing children over a cliff that is built on lies from the pit of hell. Some parents, politicians, and so-called professionals are guilty of a masquerade of evil they are falsely calling healthcare.”
“Children and young people are suffering the lifelong consequences of drugs and surgeries that maim body, mind, and spirit,” Graham said. “God will judge our nation. This madness needs to stop.”
With more than 10 million followers, Graham’s endorsement received quite a bit of interest, support, and criticism.
One commenter wrote, “Thank you Elon Musk for speaking the truth. Unbelievable evil at work!!”
Another called for prayer, specifically for Musk, saying, “If I’m not mistaken, he is an atheist. If so, then this speaks volumes and we need to pray for Mr. Musk as well.”
Others commented on suspected agendas behind such comments.
Transgender Medical Procedures for Minors
According to FOX Business, “There is a national movement led by conservatives that argues hormone replacement therapy, puberty blockers and sex-reassignment surgeries to be unproven and potentially dangerous to children.”
