Southern Baptist GOP mom from Alabama speaks out for her 6 y.o. trans kid

An impressive video from a self-proclaimed “conservative, Southern Baptist Republican from Alabama” about coming to terms with her 6-year-old “son” informing mom that “he” was really a girl.

It takes a lot of courage for any mom to go public and come out about their child, let alone a conservative Republican from Alabama.


The mom, Debi Jackson, then talks about the arguments people have made, telling her that she’s wrong to embrace her child:

“God hates transgender people. They are sinners and going to hell.”

(Jackson then chokes up.)

My God taught us to love one another. Jesus sought ought those who others rejected….

My daughter is a girl in her heart. She knows it. God knows it. And that’s good enough for me.
