The Taproot of Truth Project: an Overview

Christianity Confronting the Culture Initiative

Series 1: The Transgenderism Movement, Law, and Truth

by Virginia Armstrong, Ph.D.*

Overview of This Project

Purposes: To define and defend more effectively the Judeo-Christian worldview of the U. S. Constitution and legal system in today’s Culture War:

  • By developing leaders and activating Americans to raise higher the Judeo-Christian standard -

  • As a result of  involvement in  a unique research and education adventure -

  • Which demonstrates Judeo-Christian worldview superiority over the Humanistic worldview -

  • With particular emphasis on the often less-visible role of law and judges in the Culture War -

  • On the white-hot battle fronts of religious liberties, evolutionism, abortion/life, and the new sexualism -

  • Utilizing Blackstone’s unique worldview model, which can be conceptualized as an oak tree:

The taproot, which is the deep and straight subterranean anchor/foundation of the tree, providing stability and nourishment, and from which all else springs, i.e., theology/religion;

The secondary roots, or “truth tenets,” which may occasionally erupt into view above ground, and which represent the primary components of a comprehensive philosophy, both general and legal: ontology, cosmology, epistemology, anthropology, teleology, and axiology (Note: All of these terms will be explained and illustrated in our Study):

The tree’s trunk, which is the U. S. Constitution

The tree’s branches, each representing one of the four fundamental constitutional/cultural provisions/issues underlying the Culture War;

The tree’s leaves sprouting from each branch, each leaf representing a court case or similar issue focusing on the issue represented by that branch.

Truths Central to this Project

  1. The Transgenderism Movement (“TM”) is an inherently religious ideology.

  2. TM’s frenetic presentation of “sexual/gender orientation” as immutable, scientific, and historical is totally false. These fallacies originated recently, mainly on American college campuses.

  3. TM purports to be “factual” throughout but is actually a set of self-contradictory, disprovable value assertions.

  4. TM’s proclaimed purposes of “protecting the victimized minority of gender nonconformists” is actually an intentional, crafted campaign to “deconstruct” and “destroy” Judeo-Christian life in America.

  5. TM’s war against America targets both substantive and structural principles of our Constitution and law in general, clearing the way for a hegemonic Humanistic government to take over America.

  6. TM depends heavily on its fundamentally flawed view of man’s sexual nature as
    fluid, non-binary, and totally determined by each individual for himself/herself.
