Today in a Tweet President Trump announced that a ban would be placed on transgenders serving in the military. The reaction from homosexual activists was swift with OutServe threatening to sue saying it was an overreach and the President doesn’t have the authority to make such a decision. On the other hand the American Family Association of Pennsylvania (AFA of PA), a statewide traditional values group, commended the President’s decision to stop the attacks on the underpinning of our military might.
In an early morning Tweet President Trump announced no transgenders would be allowed to serve in the US military. He noted the tremendous medical costs and disruption that transgenders would impose on the military. The military must be focused on victory and not be distracted by allowing transgenders to serve in any capacity.
AFA of PA encourages Christians, through education, to become involved in pro-family issues in their community, state and the nation. This is some of what has been going on in the Commonwealth and the nation.
Absolute truth — truth that never changes over time. Does it exist any longer? As Christians we understand absolute truth is only found in God’s Word and that never changes, but increasingly we live in a society that does not believe there is absolute truth. Now, in their eyes, truth is how they define it.
Congressmen Mike Kelly and Keith Rothfus were the only two PA Congressmen who signed onto a letter to Attorney General Jeff Sessions expressing concerns over the apparent religious test that Senator Bernie Sanders was using to determine whether to support a Trump nominee or not! Also, Senator Mitch McConnell has finally decided to move towards a repeal of Obamacare, a step in the right direction!
Last night Allentown City Council ignored scientific facts and voted unanimously to ban needed therapy for minors. According to the American Family Association of Pennsylvania (AFA of PA), this only proves they do not understand the issue, but are willing to bow to pressure from LGBT activists and ignore the needs of its own citizens with unwanted same-sex attraction (SSA). The decision leaves parents and minor children with SSA or gender confusion without hope of finding help within their own city. What therapy will city council target next?
The US House just voted to allow our taxpayer dollars to be used to pay for “sex reassignment surgeries” for military personnel! Congresswoman Vickie Hartzler’s amendment to the National Defense Authorization Act 2018 was defeated by a vote of 209 to 214. Four of those ‘Nay” votes were Pennsylvania Republicans!
Comcast is profiting from the sale of hardcore porn and they need to stop! Many states have passed resolutions recognizing porn as a public health risk. Studies and police reports increasingly show the connection between porn and sexual exploitation. Send Comcast the message that their sale of porn must stop!
Tonight Allentown City Council is scheduled to vote on Bill No. 40-2017 which would take away the parental rights of the citizens of that city who may have a child with unwanted same-sex attraction or gender confusion. If the bill becomes law those parents could no longer seek counseling for their child in Allentown because any therapist who offered help would lose his or her license by that simple act. The American Family Association of Pennsylvania (AFA of PA), a statewide organization advocating for children, has contacted Mayor Ed Pawlowski and City Council with information they need to consider before voting tonight.
