Wrote: “Secular society, having absorbed the shock of homosexuality, is now accepting transgenderism; next stop, postgenderism? We are experiencing the death knell of Christian America, as ‘bathroom bills’ chip away all concepts of civility. Never mind that public acceptance of transgenderism depends on myth built on imagination. Government, media, our public education system, business, and even churches are promoting a delusion. We too easily forget that changing our God-given sexual identity is impossible; every cell in our bodies is indelibly marked male or female.”

Said: “Homosexuals have no good, quality intentions with children but to indoctrinate them into a perverted, sexual lifestyle.” 

Claims LGBTQ rights movement is “antithetical to Biblical values”: “Rainbows are meant to show God’s redemption, but this image has been co-opted by a movement that is antithetical to Biblical values,” Reese added. “We’re going to take back the rainbow by redeeming it with the white marriage bow.”

—Claimed Supreme Court rulings on marriage “brought shame to America;” says gays and lesbians want marriage to justify “ungodly behavior.”

—Her take on homosexuality and LGBTQ rights activism: “Homosexuality endlessly is about sex. One’s identity is who and how you have sex. Frankly, this is becoming a boring subject. Is this all we can talk about anymore, not character qualities. Just sex, sex, sex. Well, that is clearly the focus and prerequisite to have a discussion with some human beings. I prefer to identify people by their attributes not sexual preferences. Sex used to be a subject that was only talked about by the deviants. Those with elegance and class never uttered a word publicly about such a private matter. It wasn’t acceptable then and it is not now. If anyone has even a shred of decency, please keep your sexual escapades to yourself and keep it out of sight behind closed doors. This is not liberation, this is just unhealthy perversion. As for the government, what do you expect of those who deviate from the truth to lower the bar for political correctness and mediocrity.”
