‘Made in the Image of God’: Biden Says Parents Can Keep Transgender Kids ‘Safe and Healthy’ By Affirming Their ‘Identity’ By  for Faith Wire

President Joe Biden released a video Thursday proclaiming one of the best ways parents can keep transgender children “safe and healthy” is to affirm their “child’s identity.”

“To parents of transgender children, affirming your child’s identity is one of the most powerful things you can do to keep them safe and healthy,” Biden said in an official White House video.

The president released the brief proclamation to commemorate the Transgender Day of Visibility and to recognize what the White House called the “resilience, strength, and joy of transgender, nonbinary, and gender-nonconforming people.”

Biden also said the individuals fitting into these categories are “made in the image of God” and called them “brave.”

“I want you to know that your president sees you … for who you are: made in the image of God and deserving of dignity, respect, and support,” he said. “But we know it’s hard when there are those out there who don’t see you and don’t respect you.”

Biden cited “anti-transgender state laws” that he believes attack transgender individuals and their families and called such crackdowns “simply wrong.”
