In September the US Commission on Civil Rights issued a 306 page briefing report entitled “Peaceful Co-Existence: Reconciling Nondiscrimination Principles with Civil Liberties.” The report examined the balance struck by federal courts in claims for religious exemptions from nondiscrimination laws.
Stories of children as young as three or four identifying as the opposite sex have circulated for years, but we see an increased number of such children. As transgender activists and their allies, such as President Obama and his administration, seek to normalize transgenderism, we will see an increased number of impressionable children say they were “born in the wrong body.” But according to the DSM-V, as many as 98 percent of gender confused boys and 88 percent of gender confused girls eventually accept their biological sex after naturally passing through puberty. Doctors prescribing puberty blocking meds to prevent the natural maturation of children are irreversible. Yes, these children are being used in a great social experiment.
Or so their North Carolina decision seems to indicate! How can the NCAA say it’s okay to allow men in women’s restrooms/locker and shower rooms and vice versa and not be required to allow men on the women’s team? Seems like that would be the natural next step!!
Fourth verse of the “Star-Spangled Banner:” “O thus be it ever when free men shall stand,
Between their loved home and the war’s desolation;
Blest with victory and peace, may the Heaven-rescued land,
Praise the Power that hath made and preserved us a nation!
Then conquer we must, when our cause it is just;
And this be our motto ‘IN GOD IS OUR TRUST’!
And the Star Spangled Banner in triumph shall wave,
Over the land of the free and the home of the brave!”
“The Navy is set to name a ship after the gay rights icon and San Francisco politician Harvey Milk, according to a congressional notification obtained by USNI News.
“The July 14, 2016 notification, signed by Secretary of the Navy Ray Mabus, indicated he intended to name a planned Military Sealift Command fleet oiler USNS Harvey Milk (T-AO-206).”
Let’s face it, except in extremely rare cases everyone is born with either male or female genitalia. For a man to think he is a woman or vice versa was considered a mental disorder — until homosexual activists took over the American Psychological Association (APA) in the early 1970’s and even then gender identity disorder was listed as a mental disorder in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual (DSM). In 2013 all that changed when DSM V removed ‘gender identity disorder’ and replaced it with ‘gender dysphoria’ saying “Replacing “disorder” with “dysphoria” in the diagnostic label is not only more appropriate and consistent with familiar clinical sexology terminology, it also removes the connotation that the patient is “disordered.” Okay . . . so the APA no longer views men who think they are women and vice versa as having a mental disorder – they were simply born that way and we have to celebrate them for “being true to themselves”!
When you shop, do you ever consider how a company spends its profits? Increasingly Christians need to be aware of the policies of corporations that gladly take our money on products they offer and then turn around and support those things we know to be harmful to society or extend dangerous policies.
Is it necessary that any one should certify, “General Washington avowed himself to me a believer in Christianity?” As well may we question his patriotism, his heroic, disinterested devotion to his country. His mottos were, “Deeds, not Words”; and, “For God and my Country.”
Today is Abraham Lincoln’s Birthday — he was born February 12, 1809 in a log cabin in Hardin County, Kentucky. His mother, Nancy Hanks, died in 1818 and his father, Thomas Lincoln, a farmer and carpenter, remarried soon afterward. As many pioneer families did, Lincoln grew up in near poverty.
“In homosexuality, something’s not working”
Those were the words of Dr. Robert Spitzer who, in 1973, was instrumental in having homosexuality removed as a mental disorder from the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual. Dr. Spitzer passed away a few days after Christmas. At the time of his death homosexual activists viewed him as the key that opened the door to all their victories over the past decades. But when he published another study in 2001 which “shows some people can change from gay to straight, and we ought to acknowledge that,” they began viciously attacking the man who they felt had betrayed them.
