An amendment offered by Senators Collins (R-ME) and Gillibrand (D-NY) to the NDAA was never brought to the floor for a vote. They, along with Senator Jack Reed (D-RI) and Senator John McCain (R-AZ) have now introduced a stand-alone bill which would permit transgenders to serve in the military.
As in 2014 W.W. Bridal Boutique is under attack for turning away a lesbian couple who wanted wedding attire for their upcoming “wedding.” The owner believes that marriage is only between one man and one woman and runs her business with those convictions and because of that she is under attack. Her business has received such threatening phone calls that they are now only seeing customers by appointment and have been forced to deactivate their Facebook page!
The Pride Festival of Central PA will be held Saturday, July 29th in Harrisburg’s Riverfront Park. The following are sponsors of this “pride” event through either monetary contributions or goods and services are as follows:
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.
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!
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.
Allentown is poised to take away the parental rights of those with children who have unwanted same-sex attraction or who are confused about their gender. Such a step would trap these minors in a lifestyle they are trying to avoid and lead to a feeling of hopelessness. Talk therapy is not abuse!
The Department of Defense has issued a six month delay in the implementation of the previous administration’s open transgenders in the military policy. However, the entire idea should be scapped and Congresswoman Vicky Hartzler plans to introduce an amendment to the NDAA 2018 that would do just that!
