    No, we are supposed to emulate him. We don't need to vow to chastity unless we enter priesthood or become a nun.

    Emulating Jesus means not emulating Jesus. Makes sense.

    We emulate his teachings. It's those who seek to be the teacher that emulates him chastity and all.

    Why are certain Christians so easily offended? Why should they care if some people are transgendered?

    So, it matters what things are acceptable to the majority at a specific time in history? Is that how these rules are decided?

    The Jews were polygamous until the Romans outlawed it in the 4th century. Israel outlawed it in 1959.

    How come priests didn't start to be celibate until the 1100s?

    Some are Christian in name only. While transgenderism is an abnormal act to them it still should fall under turning the other cheek.
