Opinion: Wendy McKamey Should Be Censured By LDS Church for Supporting Child “Sex Changes”

Rep. Wendy McKamey is known throughout Cascade County as a proud Mormon, a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. Her sons have served as elders, or missionaries, for the church and McKamey often brags of being the highest-ranking female Mormon in her ward. McKamey wears her membership in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints with much aplomb, pinning LDS quotes to her Pinterest page and generally making a show of her devout faith.

And yet, yesterday Wendy McKamey voted against HB113, which would have prevented doctors and parents from mutilating the genitals of their children to make them appear to be the wrong gender. It would seem, from a cursory glance, that Rep. McKamey should be disciplined and disfellowshipped from her faith community for siding with the LGBTQ lobby rather than siding with innocent children and her personal faith.

The 806-page 2020 LDS Handbook specifies precisely where the LDS stands on gender-bending. The handbook states…

“Leaders also counsel against social transitioning. A social transition includes changing dress or grooming, or changing a name or pronouns, to present oneself as other than his or her birth sex. Leaders advise that those who socially transition will experience some Church membership restrictions for the duration of this transition.

Restrictions include receiving or exercising the priesthood, receiving or using a temple recommend, and receiving some Church callings.”

Mormon leader, Apostle Dallin H. Oaks, dramatically and unequivocally repudiated such effort to “change” gender, saying, “God created humans as male and female, who are defined by ‘biological sex at birth.’ Oaks, who is the first counselor to the president of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, told church officials, “ … Binary creation is essential to the plan of salvation.”

It would seem that Rep. McKamey is due some discipline and disfellowship from her local ward, or what is most recently called among Mormons, “formal membership restrictions.”

One of McKamey’s constituents and fellow church attendees wrote the Montana Daily Gazette’s newstip line and said…

“Wendy runs around Cascade County bragging about her deeply held religious beliefs. She pins it to her sleeve. But she just voted to ignore the LDS position on childhood sex changes. Furthermore, the church has been very forthright about repudiating child abuse. If cutting up your kids’ private parts isn’t abuse, I don’t know what is.”

For the 18 or so Republicans who voted to allow parents and doctors to carve up little kids, like for McKamey, chickens may soon be coming home to roost.
