Bo Snerdley: Loved, Heard, and Understood.


Over the weekend, President Joe Biden held the largest “Pride” event ever held at the White House.

In his remarks, the President said he wanted to “send a message” to the entire community, especially to transgendered children — that they are “loved,” that they are “heard,” and they are “understood.”

Being loved, heard, and understood are fine sentiments. There is no fault to be attached to those words.

Sadly, however, this President, his political party, and his administration do not share that same embrace for other American citizens.

Let us not forget that federal workers – including members of the United States military – who voiced heartfelt objections toward taking an unproven covid vaccination were sent this message: Submit to Joe Biden’s mandates or lose their livelihood. They were not loved, heard, or understood. They were demonized.

Across this nation, parents object to having their young children subjected to highly sexualized ideology. Others object to having their daughters forced to share bathrooms and locker-rooms with biological boys who’ve been led to believe that claiming to be girls makes them girls.

Though some of these daughters have been sexually assaulted by “transgendered” boys, there is no love, listening, or understanding extended to the parents. Instead, the Biden Department of Justice sought to have such parents monitored by law enforcement and declared homegrown terrorists.

In his “Pride” speech Biden also said, without evidence: “When a person can be married in the morning and thrown out of a restaurant for being gay in the afternoon, something is still very wrong in America.”

If this actually happened, of course it is wrong – just as it was wrong for Sarah Huckabee Sanders and her dinner party to be booted from a Virginia restaurant for the offense of being Republican. I don’t recall Joe Biden or those on the political left claiming that meant something was very wrong in America.

Mr. Biden also declared that those in the LGBTQ community were some “of the bravest and most inspiring people” he had ever known. That raised a few eyebrows, as Biden’s remarks came just four days after the 79th anniversary of the D-Day invasion. Not to mention 22 years since America’s first responders rushed into burning and falling buildings in the 9/11 terrorist attacks on our nation.

Biden’s definition of bravery did not include the many courageous Americans who faced physical harm and gave their lives fighting the vicious Jim-Crow-era laws Southern Democrats created. Yet they are examples of what bravery truly looks like.

But “bravery” portrayed as pushing irreversible sterilization surgeries on minors or graphic sexual literature on elementary school children is rejected by vast numbers of Americans. And rightly so.

Instead, I’d extend the definition of “bravery” to those who are constantly smeared by this President and his political party as “haters” and “bigots” for simply following their religious teachings and moral convictions. And I’d also characterize as “brave” those who refuse to forsake a once-universally-accepted fact of biology, that except for rare medical incidents, science tells us there are only two genders.

If we are to have a truly inclusive culture – where people can enjoy the freedom of expressing different beliefs – the demonization that religious people and adherents to science now face from Joe Biden and his Democrat party must cease.

I believe in the power of love, and strongly support the idea that we as a people should listen to each other and commit to be as understanding as possible. People, gay or straight, should not be subjected to hate or violence for simply being who they are – as God created them.

Perhaps one day, if this President is truly willing to listen to those he views as his political enemies, he will come to that understanding. With a spirit of love.
