MADISON, Wis., April 10, 2018 /Christian Newswire/ -- The Boston, Chicago, New York, Los Angeles, and London marathons will allow transgenders to compete without hormone therapy or re-assignment surgery.
The following is a statement from 4 Winds Christian Athletics President Steve McConkey:
"The LGBT movement is expanding in sports. In 2003, we were the only ones standing against the Olympic Committee for allowing transgenders in the Olympics. From there, it spread to high schools, the NCAA, pro leagues, and the military. We have fought this LGBT sports agenda every step of the way.
"Pseudoscience has allowed this agenda to happen without protests from those who know better. Everyone knows that men have an unfair advantage over women. Even if a person takes hormones for a year, men still have muscle and bone advantages over females.
"In the women's 800 meters at the Rio Olympics, it is reported that the medal winners were intersex. Though not transgender, these athletes were born with male parts and were not tested for testosterone. One of the athletes was reported to have three times the testosterone level of a normal woman.
"The Bible says being transgender is sinful. Whenever, you mess with God's creation, there are problems. Pseudo scientists deny the truth they learned while at universities. They are trying to rewrite the DNA code given to each athlete."
