This is a sermon on John 13 and the betrayal of Jesus by Judas Iscariot. Betrayal is one of the most painful experiences we go through because it can only come at the hands of someone close to you. Anyone can hurt you but only someone close enough that you trust them can betray you.
A recent news report dealt with a controversy in Houston Texas. The short version of the story is that Houston passed an ordinance that dealt with access issues for transgender people. There was an effort to overturn the law that included the gathering of thousands of signatures on petitions in order to get the issue on a ballot. The concern people have is that the law would allow a man to dress up as a woman, claim to have gender identity issues and then have the freedom to go into any womans restroom, locker room, sauna, you name it and stare at women and young girls.
