Last several decades? The craze to inundate little children with transexuality in their schools, libraries, books, movies, television programs and toys is fairly recent.

You're looking in the wrong direction.

Mostly just hyper liberal atheist and Christians who sound like them.

How many atheists do you know that believe the Bible is divinely inspired and the infallible word of God, who believe what is written in the Creeds, who talks about heaven, hell, salvation, judgment, God's commandments, et al.

What do you mean when you talk about "Christians who sound like them"? Because to me that sounds like you want to define "Christian" in a way that has nothing to do with what it means historically, theologically, and biblically and instead assign some other set of ideas as central to the meaning of "Christian".

There is no such craze. However, there is a craze piloted by Christopher Rufo to demonize transsexual people and theeir families. The hysterical propaganda popping up these last couple of years has been spearheaded by this gentleman.

Now that sounds like a textbook conspiracy theory.

Christians who have worldly standards to the point of even joining in with atheists in attacking Christianity. Paul tells to not be conformed to this world. Jesus tells us that when we're following him the world will hate us, not high five us.

What?
It’s not “about the kids”?
It’s about someone’s religion getting tarnished?
Mercy!

It's about the kids, not the red herrings used as a distraction.
Telling children that if they feel that their bodies are not a good fit for them, they should talk to a trusted adult is “bad” and we should instead insist that because they have certain parts that they should just get used to it?
Maybe if we just keep them ignorant most of them will just keep quiet about it and leave our society in peace for “normal people”?

Given the history of posts in this thread combined with the complete lack of evidence of what these alleged people are allegedly saying, I have strong doubts this is an accurate summary of the reality of the situation.

Christians who have worldly standards to the point of even joining in with atheists in attacking Christianity.

Can you point out any examples of:

1) Worldly standards and
2) Christianity being attacked?

Paul tells to not be conformed to this world. Jesus tells us that when we're following him the world will hate us, not high five us.

If a non-Christian sees you feeding the hungry and says you've done something kind, does that men you did something wrong by feeding the hungry simply because a non-Christian "high fived" you for it?

Because I recall our Lord also saying,

"You are the salt of the earth, but if salt loses its taste, how shall its saltiness be restored? It is no longer good for anything but to be thrown under people's feet. You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden. Nor do people light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a stand, and it gives light to all in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven." - Matthew 5:13-16

I'll be honest, I don't use how non-Christians respond to me, whether positive or negative, as the litmus test for whether what I'm doing, saying, or believing is godly or worldly. My concern is with being faithful to Jesus Christ and taking the word which He has declared to me--to all of us in the Church--seriously in how I live my life day-to-day. But I do pray that, should my works testify, that they testify to the grace, kindness, and goodness of God.

And considering that the world which despised Christ--which Christ said would despise us--is that which condemned Him when He spent time with eating dinner with tax collectors, sex workers, and healing the sick on the Sabbath; and which put Him to death because it regarded Him a threat to their systems of power and control; I'd be far more worried about what it means when my own sense of morality is on the side of systems of power, control, and abuse rather than on the side of the least of these.

It is not holiness to do evil things and then self-congratulate ourselves when others are disgusted by our behavior.

I doubt that what you've read is a reliable source.

Matthew 7:5
I attack Christians, yes.
The reasons nonchristians are starting to take a FAR more static and cynical view of Christians is because we are NOT pulling the plank from our eye and some of us are actively ignoring it while (and let's be clear here) bearing false witness about others.

We may never solve the problem of abuse in the church, but if we want people to see Christ as someone who grants grace, then we probably shouldn't be accusing people who we've never met of abusing children.
