Richard Land, president of the Southern Evangelical Seminary, has declared transgenderism the “ultimate rebellion against God.”

In an interview with Newsmax TV, Land was asked his opinion on Vice President Joe Biden declaring gay rights the “civil rights issue of our day.”

Land said he disagreed, saying that Biden's comments were “wrong-headed” because he's confused “deeply-held religious convictions” with “cultural values.”

“The Bible, especially in the New Testament, is quite clear that homosexual behavior and lesbian behavior is a rebellion against God's order, and perhaps the ultimate rebellion against God's creation is transgenderism,” Land said.

“You know, 'I was born this way but I don't want to be this way so I'm going to change my gender,' I don't know how you can have a more ultimate rebellion against God's creation and God's order than that.”

Biden's comments are “ignorant at best and malicious at worst,” he added. (The video is embedded on this page. Visit our video library for more videos.)
