Bruce Jenner was an impressive athlete, but ESPN is honoring him as a “hero” for his elective sexual reassignment surgery. At the ESPN’s ESPY Awards, he was given the Arthur Ashe Award for courage.
As there is nothing courageous about this disorder, Rev. Franklin Graham went on Facebook and explained what he thinks about the move. Graham’s response to “Caitlyn” Jenner is devastating and going viral… You have to see this.
Caitlyn Jenner is being honored with the ESPN ESPY Award for courage? I find this hard to swallow after spending time with wounded military veterans and their spouses with Operation Heal Our Patriots—they are true heroes and their lives define courage. Some have had 30 or 40 surgeries, not to change their gender, but to try to put their bodies back together after defending our country. And to recognize the very confused Caitlyn Jenner as a hero before the entire world? Give me a break. If you want an example of real courage, it’s when Jesus Christ willingly allowed Himself to become your sin and died in your place on the cross—the Righteous One for the unrighteous.
Thank you for explaining this Rev. Graham. The same awards have gone to real heroes before, including NFL player Pat Tillman who died fighting in Afghanistan. But there is nothing heroic about what Bruce Jenner has done to himself.
