Eugene Delgaudio is an activist exposing the nefariousness of the Homosexual Agenda. These days I rarely post Delgaudio info because typically via email they are fundraisers. I find constant fundraisers annoying even if their backdrop is politics and/or faith which I agree.

 

However, this Delgaudio fundraiser is so chock full of meat-info, it is worth sharing. Support the fundraiser or not, let your own heart decide.

Dear Fellow American,

The Liberal Media Elites lost their minds when President Donald J. Trump refused to celebrate “Gay Pride Month.”

The Radical Left couldn’t believe their eyes when President Trump issued an executive order protecting Religious Liberty.

And the Homosexual Lobby went to war with the White House when the Commander-in-Chief stated the truth that transsexuals are unfit for military duty.

Now they claim that all Americans — including you — are demanding the President’s immediate impeachment for these pro-Family stands.

In fact, radical homosexual activists claim you and a majority of Americans have “evolved” your views and now support same-sex marriage, special rights for homosexuals and promotion of the homosexual lifestyle in schools.

Is that true?

What do you say?

I’ve included a link to a very important American Morality survey below.

This American Morality Survey is coded and specifically registered for pro-Family Americans like you.

You see, the Homosexual Lobby and the Liberal Media Elites are mounting an assault against Congress to abandon Traditional Values and pass their radical agenda.

And with Democrats firmly in their pockets, the Radical Left is focusing their immense resources at Republicans in Washington to push the perverse homosexual “lifestyle” on every man, woman, and child in America.

To make matters worse, more and more Republicans in Congress are coming out in favor of the Homosexual Agenda.

Even members of the President’s inner circle of advisors have broken ranks with the President in the face of the Homosexual Lobby’s onslaught.

Many so-called “conservative” Senators and Congressmen have secretly begun the work of tallying up how many voters support the radical Homosexual Agenda and how many support the Family.

To some in Congress, their votes in favor of or against the Family and Traditional Values may come down to a pure numbers game.

Now I hear insiders in Washington saying the numbers don’t look good.

The resistance to the Homosexual Agenda could collapse completely without the support of pro-Family Americans.

Passage of the Homosexual Agenda will ignite a firestorm that will rip through families, communities, and businesses by enforcing:

*** Special job rights for homosexuals. Businesses may have to adopt hiring quotas to protect themselves from lawsuits. Every homosexual fired or not hired becomes a potential federal civil rights lawsuit.

Radical homosexuals will terrorize daycare centers, hospitals, churches, and private schools. Traditional moral values will be shattered by federal law.

*** Explosion of lawsuits as Christian business owners and even clergy are forced to support homosexual “marriage” ceremonies.

*** The Homosexual Classrooms Act, which pushes their agenda into our schools. Your children or grandchildren will be taught homosexuality is moral, natural and good.

Girls will be forced to share bathrooms and locker rooms with cross-dressing boys pretending to be so-called “transgenders.”

High school children will learn perverted sex acts as part of this “if it feels good, do it” sex-ed curriculum.

And though they are just 1% of the population, radical homosexual activists relentlessly bully their way through Congress under the guise of “tolerance” and “acceptance.”

Hundreds of thousands of pro-homosexual petitions will soon flood Congress, but my friends in Congress tell me there’s virtually nothing on Capitol Hill from the tens of millions of pro-Family Americans like you.

That’s why I’m writing to you. You must make your voice heard in Washington.

Will you help?

 

COMPLETE THE SURVEY TO DEFEND AMERICAN MORALITY

 

Homosexual activists mock me in the halls of Congress. To these people, President Trump is just a punchline.

Worse yet, they say Americans like you don’t care enough to help.

Are they right? Will you fight?

If you do still want to join President Trump and millions of others in defending the Family and marriage, then please click here immediately to fill out your American Morality Survey and chip in $10 or $20 to Public Advocate right away.

I must tell you, your financial contribution is critical.

You see, while the radical homosexuals get tens of millions of tax dollars through “awareness” shell games, Public Advocate receives no government funds.

Public Advocate relies on the generosity of Americans like you who give $25, $50, $75 or $100.

A few special friends of Public Advocate give $500 or $1,000.

For many Public Advocate supporters, a contribution of $25 or $35 is a sacrificial gift.

I only ask you to prayerfully consider what you can afford.

You see, I’ve stretched Public Advocate’s resources to contact you and other select Americans who I believe are most likely to take a stand with the President.

But if you won’t help, I’m afraid there is little more I can do.

The fact is, even if every person responds, it won’t be enough to counter all that the Radical Left is doing.

And not everyone will respond. Many see how the President’s pro-Family supporters are treated by the Liberal Media.

Others will count on someone else to fight the fight and carry the load. I don’t believe you are like that.

I’ve identified nearly 10 million families I believe would join our struggle for morality if I can reach them.

That’s more than twice as many as all the homosexuals in America … and most of these families represent two or three voters each.

But without your financial help, I’ll never be able to reach them.

My hope is you care enough to contribute sacrificially so I can reach these families.

 

A generous gift of $25 will let Public Advocate reach 45 more families. $50 will help us rally more than 97 homes. And a special gift of $100 will generate over 215 contacts.

Only you know whether chipping in $10, $25, or more is best suited to your budget.

I ask you to do what you can.

The radical Homosexual Lobby boasts that you have given up your Traditional Values and hate President Trump’s pro-Family policies.

You must let Congress, Washington, and even the White House know that this is a lie.

For the Family,

 

 

HON. EUGENE DELGAUDIO
President, Public Advocate of the United States

P.S. The Radical Left claims you’ve given up on Traditional Values and the Family.

Even worse, they claim you and a majority of Americans are demanding President Donald Trump’s impeachment for his pro-Family actions.

Is it true? I pray it is not.

Please click here to fill out your American Morality Survey right away so I can prove to Congress and the media the radical homosexuals are lying about you.

About Public Advocate

 

Since its founding in 1981, Public Advocate has grown into a dedicated group of young conservatives in Washington, D.C., with a network of volunteers and supporters nationwide. Our continuous growth over the years is due to the fact that we have never wavered from our firm conviction that political decisions should begin and end with the best interests of American families and communities in mind.

 

In recent years, our efforts have focused on supporting:

 

  • A federal traditional marriage (man-woman) amendment to the Constitution to defend traditional marriage from assaults from those who claim to promote “same sex marriage”;

 

  • School prayer and the freedom of religious expression in public places;

 

  • Faith-based and community initiatives;

 

  • Pro-life legislation;

 

  • The promotion and protection of the Boy Scouts, organized sports and other activities that reinforce morality, accountability and leadership in our youth;

 

  • Tax cuts, reduction in spending by the federal government and the exposure of wasteful “pork barrel” spending for the benefit of liberal special interests or for social engineering for worse;

 

  • Equality under the law, without regard to color, race, creed, sex or religious beliefs.

 

Supporting these important efforts also means opposing those who stand steadfastly against them. Through public demonstrations, news conferences, media campaigns, petition drives and face-to-face confrontations with leading liberal politicians.

 

Public Advocate offers strong and vocal opposition to:

 

  • Same sex marriage and the furtherance of so-called “Gay Rights”;

 

  • The National Endowment of the Arts or taxpayer supported art and the federal funding and endorsement of pornography and obscenity as legitimate forms of art from any agency;

 

  • The mainstream media’s promotion and glorification of drug abuse, teenage sex, gangs, atheism, homosexuality and other immoral behavior and beliefs;

 

  • The passage of hate crimes and thought control legislation that creates inequality in our state and federal legal systems and singles out Christians or moral thinking people for persecution, fines, and harassment by the government at any level;

 

  • “Pro-choice” or abortion strengthening legislation that upholds or expands the Roe vs. Wade Supreme Court decision of 1973;

 

  • The creation of special classes of Americans at the expense of the traditional American family.

 

Through the years, Public Advocate has become a highly visible political organization and a model for other conservative activist groups in Washington D.C. and across the country.

 

Our members are often at the forefront of the defining political issues of our time, always defending the rights of fathers, mothers and children to live their lives free from government intrusions and the self-serving motives of liberal special interests and agendas.

Choose Pro-Life for Justice Kennedy’s Replacement


Justin Smith makes an excellent case for President Trump to nominate a Pro-Life and Constitutional Originalist to SCOTUS. Justin specifically posits the nomination to be Appellate Justice Amy Coney Barrett.

Choose Pro-Life for Justice Kennedy’s Replacement

 

By Justin O. Smith

Sent 7/8/2018 8:41 PM

 

Under our God-given rights, Our Founders saw the law as a tool to preserve liberty and freedom for all, through the Western and Judeo-Christian principles and virtues that made the U.S. Constitution and our bicameral system possible. They did not see liberty under the law as anybody’s right to do anything, regardless of its reprehensible nature, and they certainly never intended to place America on a path where evil is called “good”, as the nation witnessed with the Supreme Court’s ruling on Roe v Wade. The Court was never supposed to be the final arbiter of law, becoming a tyrannical entity that seemingly answers to no one and places itself above all.

 

In this sense and in conjunction with Justice Anthony Kennedy’s impending retirement, President Trump is wrong not to question potential Supreme Court nominees regarding their position on Roe v Wade and whether or not they would overturn it, if given the opportunity. Any reluctance to do so is from a political concern and ignores the fact that Roe v Wade was given the force of de facto law by a Supreme Court that enforced its will and did not judge the case on any actual constitution basis, since the so-called “right” to abortion did not exist in the Constitution and they manufactured it out of thin air.

 

President Trump suggested that it somehow wouldn’t be “appropriate” to question his nominees on this. So, is murdering over 60 million unborn children since 1973 appropriate?

 

Senator Susan Collins (R-Maine), an overt progressive, stated that she could not support any candidate who might be willing to overturn the despicable Roe v Wade Supreme Court ruling. She suggested that many years of “precedents” must somehow be viewed as “set law” as she parroted Democrat talking points and the likes of progressive Democrat activist Justices, such as Sonia Sotomayor and Elena Kagan.

 

What about the hundreds of years of precedents that upheld the sanctity of life and protected life well prior to Roe V Wade?

 

Any person who views overturning the activist decision of Roe v Wade as a “big mistake is essentially willing to usurp an unborn child’s right to “life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness”. They are either horribly ignorant or terribly callous in turning a blind-eye to the murder of a human person, committed in each abortion; but in either case, they are taking the position that protecting innocent life is not a moral good.

 

If Supreme Court precedents are set law, why isn’t Plessy v Ferguson and Lum v Rice still the law of the land? If these cases had not been overturned, America would still have segregation under the “law”. These were overturned by a later Court, because the Supreme Court is fallible.

 

However, ever since Marbury v Madison (1803) and the Court’s assumption that it was the primary interpreter of the Constitution, America has seen the Supreme Court define its own power, and increasingly and regularly, America has seen the Supreme Court usurp power and act as if it is dominant over Congress and the Office of the President, which is contrary to the Founders’ Original Intent. Marbury has been cited by the Court to invalidate laws in over 200 cases, even though Marbury v Madison does not contain any actual assertion that the Court has exclusive authority to bind other parts of government.

 

Thomas Paine, one of our Founders, once noted, “All power exercised over a nation … must be either delegated, or assumed … All delegated power is trust, and all assumed power is usurpation.”

 

The rights Thomas Jefferson lists in the Declaration of Independence are certainly open to interpretation, but according to our Founders, their metaphysical basis, found in nature itself, is not. However, activist Justices have now long impressed their notions of what they believe the Constitution should say, upon all America. As a result, America was handed rulings that removed prayer and the Ten Commandments from schools, pornography on demand, abortion and homosexual “marriage”.

 

Some call retiring Justice Kennedy a “moderate” because he voted along conservative lines fifty-seven percent of the time, but how anyone reaches this conclusion is disturbing, especially once one looks at some major cases. Kennedy voted too often to advance the deviant and perverted homosexual agenda in America, although this segment of society represents only a mere 3 to 4 percent of the population. Kennedy knocked down Texas’s sodomy laws, the upheld Roe v Wade twice and he voted in favor of homosexual “marriage”, aiding in making a mockery of traditional marriage and the only true meaning of marriage — the union between one man and one woman in Holy Matrimony before God. This is not a “conservative” or a “moderate”.

 

By the time this is released, Pres. Trump will have made his pick for the Supreme Court. Let us all pray that he chooses Amy Coney Barrett, the 46 year old Justice of the Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals,  who is a pro-life Catholic mother of seven and a strong Constitutionalist. Ms. Barrett was also awarded the top student award from Notre Dame Law School in 1997.

 

President Trump cannot deny, that these illiberal anti-Constitution proponents of abortion stand firmly opposed to the conservative philosophy, which is the protector of America’s founding ideas, those ideas of life and liberty so many American patriots have died defending. As such, President Trump and Congress should unabashedly state that they will move to place a pro-life nominee on the Supreme Court, such as Amy Barrett, because modern Justices no longer seem capable of just determining the constitutionality of any particular law, in accordance with the Founders’ Original Intent; rather, they seek to wield the Supreme Court like a club to meet the demands of whatever political agenda at hand at any given moment, during a time that the anti-Constitution progressive Democrats have certainly made no secret that defending baby murder is an integral part of their fight to accept or reject any candidate for the Supreme Court.

 

As Christians, we are bound to speak for those who cannot speak for themselves and to reject the lies and the evil of an abortion industry that murders the image of God approximately 1.5 million times a year in America. No one should ever call such a heinous crime a “right”.

 

And in the meantime, America must put forth the necessary effort and work to reign in an out-of-control Supreme Court, as the admonishment and prophesy of Brutus, one of the great anti-Federalists guiding the Constitution’s ratification debate, has become our present-day reality: “The Supreme Court under this Constitution would be exalted above all other power in the government, and subject to no controul … There is no power above them, to controul any of their decisions. There is no authority that can remove them, and they cannot be controuled by the laws of the legislature. In short, they are independent of the people, of the legislature, and of every power under Heaven. Men placed in this situation will generally soon feel themselves independent of Heaven itself.” [Italic bold by Editor]

 

America must stop un-elected Supreme Court Justices from arbitrarily exercising power over the entire nation, our federal and state governments, in a manner that abrogates part of the Constitution itself, as it sets forth to define good and evil from the high court. And America must stop the reprehensible abortion industry and overturn Roe v Wade, and right the historic wrong that has perpetrated the worst mass murder in history, upon a nation that purportedly seeks to be blessed by God.

Answering Ren Time’s Defense of Homosexuality


John R. Houk

© May 22, 2018

 

I moderate all comments on my SlantRight 2.0 blog. Unfortunately I don’t always get to them in a timely manner. I approved a comment to the post “If your school allows ‘Day of Silence’, keep your child home this Friday”. The post was a cross post of an AFA announcement that LGBTQ proponents were pushing Public Schools to have a Day of Silence to honor the homosexual movement in America on or around April 27, 2018.

 

Needless to say, I was not pleased that homosexual activists are using the same Public Schools to promote the godless homosexual lifestyle that Christians were told could not pray because Judicial Activism used Thomas Jefferson’s wording in a letter that does NOT appear in the Constitution, to exclude all things Christian from taxpayer supported activities.

 

The Courts is how all things Left-Wing have corrupted all thing moral in the United States of America.

 

I received a comment from a person who indicated he was a proud member of the Lutheran Church. God have mercy on the Lutheran Church if they promote homosexuality of the express condemnation of the practice in the Word of God.

The depravity of a LGBTQ kind-of-Community around Sodom and Gomorrah in Abraham’s day:

 

19 Now the two angels came to Sodom in the evening, and Lot was sitting in the gate of Sodom. When Lot saw them, he rose to meet them, and he bowed himself with his face toward the ground. And he said, “Here now, my lords, please turn in to your servant’s house and spend the night, and wash your feet; then you may rise early and go on your way.”

 

And they said, “No, but we will spend the night in the open square.”

But he insisted strongly; so they turned in to him and entered his house. Then he made them a feast, and baked unleavened bread, and they ate.

 

Now before they lay down, the men of the city, the men of Sodom, both old and young, all the people from every quarter, surrounded the house.

 

10 But the men reached out their hands and pulled Lot into the house with them, and shut the door. 11 And they struck the men who were at the doorway of the house with blindness, both small and great, so that they became weary trying to find the door.

 

12 Then the men said to Lot, “Have you anyone else here? Son-in-law, your sons, your daughters, and whomever you have in the city—take them out of this place! 13 For we will destroy this place, because the outcry against them has grown great before the face of the Lord, and the Lord has sent us to destroy it.” (Genesis 19: 1-4, 10-13 NKJV)

 

And here:

 

You shall not lie with a male as with a woman. It is an abomination. (Leviticus 18: 22 NKJV)

 

And here:

 

18 For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who [a]suppress the truth in unrighteousness,

 

26 For this reason God gave them up to vile passions. For even their [a]women exchanged the natural use for what is against nature. 27 Likewise also the [b]men, leaving the natural use of the [c]woman, burned in their lust for one another, men with men committing what is shameful, and receiving in themselves the penalty of their error which was due. (Romans 1: 18, 26-27 NKJV)

 

Friends this is only a Bible sampling showing homosexuality is not the Creator’s plan for life. No matter how Liberal Christian Churches twist the real meaning of God’s Word or even deny God’s Word by shoving it into the realm of archaic irrelevance, the actual meaning is true, good and righteous.

 

Below is the unedited comment made by Ren Time followed by my answer.

where in the Bible does it say that LGBTQ+ is not welcome. I’m Honestly wondering why so many people are against LGBTQ+. The bible does say to “Love thy Neighbor as yourself” Mark 12:31. So why are you against this?

~ A Memeber of The Lutheran Church

 

Hmm… Let’s look at the first sentence:

 

where in the Bible does it say that LGBTQ+ is not welcome.”

 

Let’s be CLEAR what LGBTQ+ represents:

 

LGBTQ+ is an acronym for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Trans, Queer/Questioning, and others. (LGBTQ+ Terminology; University of Central FloridaSocial Justice and AdvocacyStudent Development and Enrollment Services)

 

In order to not be accused too much for source bigotry, note the above quote is from a university that is fully supportive of the homosexual lifestyle as a natural act as opposed to an unnatural act. You can go to the above pdf for the pro-gay terminology, but I am going to use other sources either neutral or pro-Biblical.

 

(L)esbian:

 

a woman who is sexually attracted to other women :a female homosexual (Merriam-Webster Learner’s Dictionary)

 

… where did the term “lesbians” come from. For starters, it did not come from the Bible. It is believed the term came from the reference to residents living on the island of Lesbos. This island, the third largest one in the Aegean Sea, was home in the early 7th century B.C. to a female poet named Sappho. She was known for writing about her passionate relationships with other females. (What does the Bible say about LESBIANS?BibleStudy.org)

 

(G)ay:

 

  1. of, relating to, or exhibiting sexual desire or behavior directedtoward a person or persons of one’s own sex; homosexual: a gay couple.

 

  1. of, indicating, or supporting homosexual interests or issues: a gay organization.

 

  1. Slang: Often Disparaging and Offensive. awkward, stupid, or bad; lame: This game is boring and really, really gay. (Dictionary.com)

 

It should first be noted that the KJV Bible does not use the word gay in its text. The word itself comes from the Middle English word “gai” which came into existence around 1275 to 1325 A.D. (dictionary.com). It originally meant something that was fast, sudden, merry or showy. The use of the word gay as a synonym for a homosexual began sometime around the late 1930s and 40s. (What does the Bible say about being Gay?BibleStudy.org)

 

(B)isexual:

 

Sexually attracted not exclusively to people of one particular gender; attracted to both men and women. (OxfordDictionaries.org)

 

Though the Bible does not directly speak about bisexuality, it frequently addresses issues related to sexual ethics. A look at some of these principles offers clarity regarding God’s view of the practice of bisexuality.

 

First, sexual relationships were created by God to take place within the context of marriage between a man and a woman. Genesis 2:24 teaches, “Therefore a man shall leave his father and his mother and hold fast to his wife, and they shall become one flesh.” Though the Bible records other forms of relationships, it only specifically presents one man and one woman enjoying sexual relations within marriage as God’s design.

 

Second, since bisexuality includes sexual relationships outside of marriage, it is also excluded as a form of sexual immorality. First Corinthians 6:18 clearly teaches, “Flee from sexual immorality. Every other sin a person commits is outside the body, but the sexually immoral person sins against his own body.”

 

Third, bisexuality is also excluded from Christian practice since it includes same sex relationships that are prohibited in the Bible. In the Old Testament, same sex activity was called an abomination (Leviticus 18:22). In the New Testament, Jesus speaks directly of marriage (and sexual relations) between one man and one woman in marriage (Matthew 19). The apostle Paul mentioned that some of the believers in Corinth had been involved in same sex relations before becoming believers, saying, “And such were some of you. But you were washed, you were sanctified, you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and by the Spirit of our God” (1 Corinthians 6:11). Same sex activity is clearly excluded from the lifestyle of those who follow Christ. This would certainly also include bisexual relations. (Does the Bible say anything about bisexuality? Is being bisexual a sin?CompellingTruth.org)

 

(T)rans or Transgender:

 

used to describe someone who feels that they are not the same gender (= sex) as the one they had or were said to have at birth (Cambridge Dictionary)

 

Someone who is transgender has a gender identity which does not fully correspond to the sex assigned to them at birth. (CollinsDictionary.com)

 

 

The biggest claim of the transgender movement is that a man who thinks he’s a woman can really be a woman, and vice versa. You see this in many ways — from preferred pronouns, sex reassignment surgeries, and demands to use the restroom of perceived rather than given gender.

 

The problem is that this is a philosophical claim that is not true, and can never be true, in any way or form. A man’s chromosomes cannot be engineered into female chromosomes. Altering one’s appearance cosmetically or surgically cannot change the underlying reality of a person’s biological make-up. The psychology of the mind cannot override the facts of a person’s biological markers. The transgender revolution demands that we believe falsehoods about human nature. And truth and falsehood have never been a matter of majority vote, because we know that there is a Creator who has the authority to decide and state what is right and wrong.

 

… (5 Things Every Christian Must Know About the Transgender Debate; By Andrew T. Walker; TheGoodBook.com; 7/28/17)

 

(Q)Queer/Questioning:

 

Dictionary.com has 12 definitions for “Queer.” The definitions are divided between adjective, noun, verb and the slang of those grammatical divisions. Under adjective, there are four definitions of “queer” that were normal before the homosexual lifestyle appropriated the term. My focus is what dictionary.com calls slang –

 

5. [Adjective] Slang.

a. Usually Disparaging and Offensive. (of a person) gay or lesbian.

b. noting or relating to a sexual orientation or gender identity that falls outside the heterosexual mainstream or the gender binary: queer subcultures.

 

10. [noun] Slang.

a. Disparaging and Offensive. a term used to refer to a a person who is gay or lesbian.

b. a person whose sexual orientation or gender identity falls outside the heterosexual mainstream or the gender binary.

 

Merriam-Webster.com:

 

2. d. often disparaging + offensive

 

(1) : sexually attracted to members of the same sex : homosexualgay

(2) : of, relating to, or used by homosexuals : gay 4b

 

“(Q)ueer/Questioning” is a bit difficult to locate via a Biblical perspective. Search engines typically go the homosexual issue when looking for a Biblical perspective of the term. Hence, I’ll use the definitions from the pro-homosexual “LGBTQ+ Terminology”:

 

Queer

 

  1. An umbrella term for the LGBTQ+ community (ex: the queer community).

 

  1. A sexual orientation that is intentionally left vague. Many people identify as queer because they feel that no other sexuality term applies to them. People who identify as queer might also do so for political reasons: to specifically and publically [sic] reject society’s prevailing view of sexuality. Some people experience “queer” as a slur, so use this term with care.

 

Questioning-

 

Being unsure of your gender identity, being unsure of your sexual orientation, or both. Many people go through a stage of questioning during their lives, sometimes several times. This can be because they learn new words that fit them better, or it can be that their actual feelings of gender or attraction change over time.

 

Evidently the homosexual community keeps adding initials to their acronym as indicated by the last character “+”.The “LGBTQ+ Terminology” pdf translates the “+” as “and others”. Unfortunately, the “and others” is not addressed in the terminology pdf. There are plenty of terms however that a Biblical Christian more than likely have an unfamiliarity.

 

The Urban Dictionary defines “+” as “  meaning other sexualitys such as pansexual, asexual and omnisexual extra.”

 

Pansexuality according to Merriam-Webster:

 

1: of, relating to, or characterized by sexual desire or attraction that is not limited to people of a particular gender identity or sexual orientation

 

  • Pansexualpeople are attracted to all kinds of people, regardless of their gender, sex or presentation. —Farhana Khan

 

Also: not solely homosexual or heterosexual

 

  • The famous 0-6 scale … was devised to chart sexual proclivities, from purely heterosexual (0) to purely homosexual (6). Kinsey felt humans are pansexual(most falling somewhere between 0 and 6), and restrictions imposed by society and religion lead to sexual maladjustments. —Lisa C. Hickman

 

2: tending to suffuse all experience and conduct with erotic feeling

 

  • Although Whitman’s impulses were homoerotic, he was pansexual in the sense that he could find the driving force of something such as sex in almost everything …  —Peter Craven

 

— pansexual noun

 

  • pansexualis someone who can be attracted to males, females, transgender people and those who identify as non-binary (not female or male). —Mel Evans

 

Evidently “pansexual” and “omnisexual” are similar yet distinct. Check out this explanation from Affinity Magazine:

 

Throughout pride month I saw the terms pansexual and omnisexual being used interchangeably. However, they are not synonyms of each other (thus being why they each have their own day during pride month); there is a big difference between the two that needs to be acknowledged.

 

 

Both pansexual and omnisexual are rather new words in relation to labeling sexualities, but both stem from different languages. The prefix pan- comes from the Greek word ‘pan’ meaning all, while the prefix omni- comes from the Latin word ‘omni’, which also means all. But despite the fact that both of the terms contain a prefix meaning ‘all’, there is still a key difference between the two.

 

The key difference being the fact that pansexuality is the attraction to people regardless of gender, meaning that they could date a man, a woman, someone identifying as non-binary or anyone else without said person’s gender playing a part in whether they date them or have the capacity to love them. Whereas omnisexual is the attraction to anyone despite their gender, meaning they could also date a man, a woman, someone identifying as non-binary or anyone else, while noticing their gender but not caring how they identify. (What Is The Difference Between Pansexuality And Omnisexuality? By PIPPA LACEY; Affinity Magazine; 7/11/17)

 

WHAT in the godless world are these guys trying to justify as natural!!!????

 

These explanations are NOT natural. They are not only unnatural; these explanations literally demonstrate what rebellion against the Creator looks like.

 

So Ren Time (I’d be surprised if this is not a pseudonym), one may not find “LGBTQ+” in the Bible, But those descriptions are definitely written off as ungodly counter-Creator separating from the Presence of God practices.

 

The next question by Ren Time is a bit perplexing to Christians that are fully aware that homosexuality is ungodly but and versed well enough in the Word of God to respond with firm compassion. Ren Time then asks, “The bible does say to “Love thy Neighbor as yourself” Mark 12:31. So why are you against this?

 

In rightly discerning God’s Word, one should discover that under the New Covenant established by the Blood of Jesus in the torturous whipping and Crucifixion of Jesus the price was paid for humanity’s inherited sin bequeathed by Adam by believing Satan in Eden rather obeying God pertaining to the fruit of the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil.

 

Christians should love the godly and the ungodly alike. BUT, Christians should NOT support the practices of sin that separates humanity from God’s Presence. That means Christians should freely condemn sin without being the Judge/Executioner of sin. Redemption is about Forgiveness of sin, Acceptance of contrition for sin and Restoration to the Presence of God.

 

This is when such oft used phrases as “Hate the sin and not Sinner” should mean something. It is the place of Christians to use acts of violence against the sinners that practice the various forms of homosexuality especially after the law of the land has legalized the godless practice.

 

The duty of a Christian is to pray for the ungodly just as Jesus did even right from the Cross before spirit left His body:

 

Then Jesus said, “Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they do.”

 

And they divided His garments and cast lots. (Luke 23: 34 NKJV)

 

Jesus the Son of God and the son of Man via Mary, even after humanity reared its undeserving head in the death of the Christ on the Cross. For this context take the time to read: Matthew 27: 32-44; Mark 15: 25-32; Luke 23: 32-43 NKJV.

 

So indeed Ren Time, love your neighbor as yourself, but also the heed the rest of the Word of God:

 

17 “Do not think that I came to destroy the Law or the Prophets. I did not come to destroy but to fulfill. 18 For assuredly, I say to you, till heaven and earth pass away, one [a]jot or one [b]tittle will by no means pass from the law till all is fulfilled. 19 Whoever therefore breaks one of the least of these commandments, and teaches men so, shall be called least in the kingdom of heaven; but whoever does and teaches them, he shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven.20 For I say to you, that unless your righteousness exceeds the righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees, you will by no means enter the kingdom of heaven. (Matthew 5: 17-20 NKJV)

 

Here are some parting Words written in the Word of God about the mission of Jesus Christ the Son of God to a world enveloped in darkness:

 

1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things were made through Him, and without Him nothing was made that was made. In Him was life, and the life was the light of men. And the light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not [a]comprehend it.

 

That[a] was the true Light which gives light to every man coming into the world.

 

10 He was in the world, and the world was made through Him, and the world did not know Him. 11 He came to His [b]own, and His [c]own did not receive Him. 12 But as many as received Him, to them He gave the [d]right to become children of God, to those who believe in His name: 13 who were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.

 

14 And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth. (John 1: 1-5, 9-14 NKJV)

Looking at the Incel Movement


John R. Houk

© April 27, 2018

 

Alek Minassian of the Toronto Massacre infamy, had his day in a Canadian Court where the interested found out he is being charged with 10 counts of murder and 13 counts of attempted murder. As far as I know Minassian has not confessed to the reason for the attack. This post is based on the speculative motive for the massacre. That being Minassian was a part of the subculture group of mostly men who believe they are a part of the Incel Movement. Incel = involuntarily celibate.

 

These dudes feel that beautiful women will only form relationships with hunky men leaving out in the cold plain nerd-like socially maladjusted men. You’d almost feel sorry for these lost souls except they have evolved from a self-pitying lot to a hate group that despises primarily gorgeous gals. Sam Louie MA, LMHC writing for Psychology Today demonstrates the sympathetic element:

 

They’re teased for being virgins (“virgin-shaming”).  This is a new societal shift that has radically changed within the past two decades.  It wasn’t long ago when you may have been shamed for being sexual outside of marriage, now you’re shamed if you haven’t had sex before marriage. … In short, the worldview is if you haven’t had sex by 30, you must be not only sexually inadequate, defective, and inept but also socially.

 

They’re also teased or bullied for being socially awkward or being different.  This oftentimes can be due to physical disabilities, physical characteristics (weight, height, facial features, acne, etc.), and a lack of understanding social cues (not knowing when to start or stop talking, not knowing how much to share and possibly over-sharing in certain situations to name a few).

 

Combine this with their social isolation along with hobbies and interests that lend themselves to public mockery … Incels (short for involuntary celibate) have a tendency to gravitate towards activities that are less socially threatening thus online role-playing games and activities where your profile can be anonymous such as World of Warcraft are very popular within this demographic.  Other interests include collecting comic books, interest in Pokemon, and Japanese Manga.  And for some, they’ve also have had the additional burden of being ostracized for their ethnic background.

 

READ ENTIRETY (The Incel Movement: The sexual, social, recreational, and racial implications; By Sam Louie; Psychology Today; 4/25/18)

 

If you Google the Incel Movement, you will discover many Leftist MSM and extreme Leftist sources that more than happy to describe the movement’s characteristics. The reason being Incels are not only social awkward misogynists, but also these same guys tend to be extremely Right Wing often described as the Alt-Right (which Left loves to group Neo-Nazis, Skin Heads, KKK, White Nationalists and so on).

Thanks to Left-leaning Google I found some unpleasant info on the Incel Movement and its early development. I’m going to cross post a Flare.com thoughts. I know nothing about Flare.com, but its home page seems to emphasize the entertainment industry. Then I am going to cross post the National Post’s rather lengthy profile of Alek Minassian.

What You Need to Know About the Incel Movement & Its Potential Role in the Toronto Van Attack

 

By Sarah Boesveld, Chatelaine

Apr 26, 2018

Flare.com

 

A post about an “Incel Rebellion” appeared on suspect Alek Minassian’s Facebook page moments before the Toronto attack. But what does the term “incel” even mean—and what, if anything, did it have to do with his motivations?

As details of the van attack that claimed 10 lives and injured 15 in Toronto earlier this week continued to unfold, the term “incel” started appearing in headlines.

 

The term is Internet slang and shorthand for “involuntarily celibate,” which refers to a person (usually a man) who is not having sex or who is not in a romantic relationship because women have rejected him. It’s been co-opted by the “manosphere,” an online community that harbours a deep hatred and resentment of women, as an ideology that justifies hostility towards the opposite sex.

 

At a news conference Tuesday, Toronto Police Det-Sgt. Graham Gibson said Alek Minassian has been charged with 10 counts of first-degree murder and 13 counts of attempted murder. Gibson also said police were aware of and are investigating a “cryptic” Facebook post that referred to “incels” and was allegedly shared on the 25-year-old suspect’s account just before the killings. (Questions remain as to whether or not Minassian wrote the post himself.)  Despite the fact that most of the 10 victims in the attack were women, police said there is no evidence so far that Minassian was targeting women in particular. However, the investigation will consider whether or not the attack was motivated by misogyny.

 

Here’s what you need to know:

 

Where did the term “incel” come from to begin with?

 

This term now associated with misogyny was actually coined by a Toronto woman who craved a label for lacking sexual and romantic experience as she figured out her sexuality in university. The then-Carleton University student named Alana (she’s now in her 40s) created a website—Alana’s Involuntary Celibacy Project—which she hoped would be an inclusive space where women and men could share their experiences of being unwillingly alone. But the site quickly became dominated by men complaining about women being unwilling to sleep with them. She eventually abandoned the page, turned the URL over to a stranger and never followed up. “It feels like being the scientist who figured out nuclear fission and then discovers it’s being used as a weapon for war,” she told the Globe and Mail this week. “It’s not a happy feeling.”

 

Where did the movement go from there?

 

A lot of the men drawn to the incel world came from the pick-up artist community, which purports to teach men how to get women to date them. But according to the New York Times, incels are more extreme than so-called pick-up artists, believing the pick-up artists to be too “humanizing” of women. The most extreme incels have advocated for violence against women, including rape. They are also different from men’s rights activists, according to Arshy Mann, a DailyXtra writer who has been reporting on the Toronto “manosphere” and tweeted about the community on Tuesday.

 

Who are Stacy and Chad?

 

Incels have a code, referring to women as “Stacys” and sexually active men as “Chads.” They also deride sexually active people as “normies,” and seek to dehumanize them. Incel members have spread these ideas through Reddit and a site called 4chan—which is notorious for encouraging threatening behaviour such as doxxing (i.e., hacking and publishing personal information) women online.

 

What does this have to do with the Toronto attack?

 

It all comes back to the Facebook post Toronto police acknowledged in their press conference Tuesday. Posted on Minassian’s legitimate account allegedly minutes before the attacks was a message: “The Incel Rebellion has already begun!” The post read: “We will overthrow all the Chads and Stacys! All hail Supreme Gentleman Elliot Rodger!”

 

Who is Elliot Rodger?

 

In May 2014, 22-year-old Rodger killed six people and injured 14 others near the University of California in the Santa Barbara community of Isla Vista before killing himself in his car. Before heading out on his killing spree, Rodger uploaded a video to YouTube titled “Elliot Rodger’s Retribution,” in which he detailed the future attack and said he wanted to punish women for rejecting him, and slay sexually active men out of envy. Rodger has since become a hero in the incel community.

 

Why are there still questions about the Facebook post?

 

While Facebook confirmed the post came from an account registered to Minassian and the police acknowledged they are looking into it, it’s not 100 percent clear that Minassian wrote the post himself—it could be a hack or a hoax (online hoaxes have become common in the wake of mass killings, and the Toronto attack did come with the spread of misinformation and fake news online). Some incels online have celebrated the movement’s association with the killings. “I really want it to be true that the guy was an incel lmao,” the Toronto Star reported one commenter posting on the Incel.me forum. But the forum’s administrator this week said that, to their knowledge, Minassian had never posted on the site, nor did the community know him.

 

If Minassian was in fact influenced by the incel movement, it would strengthen the link between mass murder and hatred and violence toward women that has garnered greater attention in recent years.

Toronto van attack suspect Alek Minassian’s interest in ‘incel’ movement the latest sign of troubled life

 

The story of Minassian’s ‘sad and confusing’ life comes fragmented from a cluster of people who knew him, but none who appear to have known him well

VIDEO: Alek Minassian: What we know about Toronto van attack suspect

 

Posted by National Post

Published on Apr 26, 2018

 

TORONTO — The distressing scope of criminal allegations against Alek Minassian were revealed in a packed Toronto courtroom — 10 counts of first-degree murder and 13 counts of attempted murder — as glimpses of the man and a possible motive emerged after a rental van mowed through pedestrians along Toronto’s Yonge Street.

 

Just “minutes before” the van started its awful rampage along the sidewalks of one of Canada’s best known streets, deliberately striking pedestrians, Minassian posted a “cryptic message” on Facebook, said Toronto police Det.-Sgt. Graham Gibson.

 

The message says: “Private (Recruit) Minassian Infantry 00010, wishing to speak to Sgt 4chan please. C23249161. The Incel Rebellion has already begun! We will overthrow all the Chads and Stacys! All hail Supreme Gentleman Elliot Rodger!”

 

Infamous Alek Minassian Facebook Post

 

Decoding the post suggests a spark for the deadly trek may have been frustration over an inability to attract female companionship. The majority of the victims struck by the van were women, adding to the potential importance of the post.

 

Toronto police are investigating whether Minassian’s mental health or an interest in the incel movement are related to the van attack.

 

At 25, Minassian, who lived with his parents and his brother in a detached two-storey home in suburban Richmond Hill, just north of Toronto, is variously described as a failed solider who dropped out of basic training, a socially awkward student in a special needs class in high school where he was known for acting like a cat, a long-standing college student, a computer whiz and app developer, video game enthusiast and a self-declared “incel.”

It is his apparent embrace of the incel movement that helps decipher his odd Facebook post, which Facebook has confirmed as a legitimate post from Minassian’s account that has since been taken down by the company.

 

An “incel” is a portmanteau of “involuntary celibate” and came into wide recognition in 2014 after Elliot Rodger, 22, killed six and injured 14 in Isla Vista, California, before killing himself. In a manifesto, he said he needed to punish women for rejecting him and sexually active men for their success where he failed.

 

Within the incel subculture, which typically veers towards deep misogyny, “Chads” refer to the sexually successful men and “Stacys” to unattainable women.

As news of Minassian’s connection spread, some self-professed incels embraced it as a call to arms.

 

Some members of an incel-dedicated forum branded him “Saint Alek” and “St. Minassian.” Some suggested other ways to continue the attacks so the world of the sexually active would fear them.

 

“It is a good time to be an incel. Our brothers are launching their counter-attack, getting their revenge. Thank you,” one post reads. “They should be scared, this is what happens when you deny so many men love and affection for their entire lives,” said another.

 

“Well, he certainly got us noticed,” one member wrote. “It will be interesting to read about Alek’s story as more details about his life unfold. I’d love to know what exactly made him think he was an incel.”

That story may one day become known, but for now, Minassian’s story comes fragmented from a cluster of people who knew him, but none who appear to have known him well.

 

Despite the violent language of some incels online, those who knew Minassian personally did not pin him as a violent character. Oddball, challenged, awkward, weird, infantilized, but not violent.

 

When Minassian was a student at Thornlea Secondary School​ in nearby Thornhill, Ont., he stood out for his unorthodox behaviour.

 

“I had classes with him. He was mentally unstable back then. He was known to meow like a cat and try to bite people; this is one sad and confusing story,” Alexander Alexandrovitch said of his former classmate in a Facebook post.

Minassian was “never intentionally violent” in school, he added.

 

Reza Fakhteh said he overlapped with Minassian for two years at Thornlea. He described Minassian as a special education student who rarely socialized and had no obvious friends.

 

“I never heard him speak beyond meowing at people,” Fakhteh wrote in a Facebook message. “His movements were erratic and just strange overall. He acted like a cat in every way.”

 

Fakhteh said he was shocked to hear that Minassian was named as a suspect in this kind of attack.

 

“The guy I remember from high school definitely wouldn’t be driving,” he said.

Ari Blaff, another former classmate said he was “an odd guy.”

 

“He had several tics and would sometimes grab the top of his shirt and spit on it, meow in the hallways and say, ‘I am afraid of girls.’ It was like a mantra.” While Minassian did not express strong ideological views or harass women, he was isolated and others privately made fun of him, Blaff said.

 

While in high school, he was an avid videogamer. A defunct Steam account, a video game software platform, that appears to be Minassian’s says he is better at shooting games than strategy games. It says he loves the Halo series — a franchise of science fiction-based first-person shooter games — and adds the gamer names of three players who he says are his “real life friends.”

In a story published in the Richmond Hill Liberal in 2009, a woman named Sona Minassian praised a local program for special needs children. The story said her son, who isn’t named, lived “with a form of autism known as Asperger’s syndrome.” He used the program, called Helpmate, to earn experience in an office setting.

 

In 2011, after high school graduation, Minassian enrolled at Seneca College in Toronto. His computer skills were put to use.

 

He worked as a paid research assistant, roughly four years ago, on a joint project with the college and an external business partner to develop an application to deal with data produced by health and wellness devices similar to Fitbits.

A staff member at Seneca who had a few encounters with Minassian several years ago said he seemed to struggle with social interaction.

 

“He could have sort of normal conversation, but you could tell it wasn’t his strength,” said the staff member, who did not wish to be named. “It’s completely surreal to realize you know someone who (allegedly) killed 10 people.”

 

Seneca President David Agnew acknowledged his school’s connection Minassian in an email to students and staff Tuesday afternoon, obtained by the National Post.

 

“The reports associating the driver with Seneca are extremely troubling,” Agnew wrote. “Yet it is vital that we do not let this terrible act undermine our determination to be the peaceful, tolerant and inclusive society that is admired around the globe. We must grieve, and we must heal, but we must also resolve to carry on.”

One of the victims was a student at Seneca. “Our thoughts are with all those affected, including the family and friends of one of our students who died as a result of the tragic incident. Along with the rest of the city, and world, we are extremely troubled by yesterday’s events,” a statement for the college says.

 

Minassian’s LinkedIn page lists him as enrolled at Seneca from 2011 to 2018. Asked whether seven years was a peculiar length of study, Seneca spokeswoman Kayla Lewis said she couldn’t confirm any student’s enrolment due to privacy concerns, but did offer that “there’s no one-size-fits-all with students and their educational journeys.”

 

Minassian also appears to have been an aspiring software developer. Someone with that name registered an online Toronto parking app on Google Play.

Recently, Minassian joined the Canadian Armed Forces. A Department of National Defence spokesperson said he joined the army on Aug. 23, 2017, started his basic training at the military facility at Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu, Que., that September and left the military on Oct. 25.

 

He had not progressed to weapons training by the time he was released.

 

“He did not complete his recruit training and requested to be voluntarily released from the CAF after 16 days of recruit training,” a DND spokesperson said.

 

His brief stint in the military also may shed light on his cryptic Facebook post. He identified himself as “Private (Recruit) Minassian Infantry 00010” — that would have been his rank as a newly recruited soldier and 00010 is the military’s designation for an infantryman.

 

 

The military’s job description for a 00010 Infantryman states: “Must close with and destroy the enemy. They come into direct contact with the enemy and hand-to-hand combat is likely.”

 

Neighbours said they did not know the family well but often saw them while out and about.

 

Elaha Jamal, who lives nearby, said it was as if the parents had to supervise Minassian and his brother constantly, and would not let them roam free, sometimes even holding his brother by the shirt at the scruff of the neck.

 

“They were not OK,” she said. “They were an older couple but they took care of these boys like they were babies.”

If your school allows ‘Day of Silence’, keep your child home this Friday


The American Family Association (AFA) is exposing a pro-homosexual event that is a part of the LGBTQ agenda to further brainwash Americans into accepting the ungodly homosexual lifestyle as legitimate. On a national level the LGBTQ agenda is advocating for Public Schools to have a Day of Silence (DOS) for those poor homosexual victims of Biblical Values (John MacArthur has a great post on the God-view) promoters.

 

I highly encourage you to read and act on the AFA alert posted below. AS YOU read the alert I want to think of a dangerous censorship law proposed in California (AB 2943), disguised as a commerce-consumer protection law that makes such AFA Alerts either illegal or an open path for California homosexuals to bring a civil suit against the AFA for disseminating material that condemns the homosexual lifestyle.

Teacher Shushing for LGBTQ

 

On Friday, April 27, high schools (and many middle schools) across the country will be hosting the LGBT movement’s annual “Day of Silence.”

 

During this all-day event, student activists and even school officials encourage students to be silent for the entire day as a sign of solidarity with the international LGBT movement. Students are encouraged to wear special pro-homosexual badges, stickers, and bracelets – which are often handed out at the school entrances that day. There are also pro-LGBT posters in the hallways, handouts, and even workshops.

 

Although the adult activists claim that the “Day of Silence” (DOS) is put together by “students,” it is in fact organized behind the scenes by adults with the enthusiastic cooperation of school officials. They use materials and instructions from a national homosexual activist group.

 

Please join the national effort to restore to public education a proper understanding of the role of government-subsidized schools.

 

You can actively oppose this hijacking of the classroom for political purposes and help de-politicize the learning environment by keeping your child out of school if your child’s school participates, promotes or allows “Day of Silence” activities.

 

TAKE ACTION

 

  1. Call your local schoolsand ask whether they permit students or teachers to remain silent in the classroom on “Day of Silence.” IMPORTANT: Do not ask any administrator, school board member, or teacher if the school sponsors, endorses, or supports DOS. Schools do not technically sponsor the Day of Silence. Technically, it is students, often students in the gay-straight alliance, who sponsor it. Many administrators will tell you that they do not sponsor the DOS when, in fact, they do permit students and sometimes even teachers to remain silent during instructional time. Also ask administrators whether they permit teachers to create lesson plans to accommodate student silence.

 

  1. Find out what datethe event is planned for your school and warn other parents. (The national date in 2018 is Friday, April 27, but some schools observe DOS on a different date).

 

  1. Inform the school of your intentionto keep your children home on that date and explain why.

I have been seeing Social Media posts claiming California has legislation in the works to ban the Bible. I chalked the information up to Fake News or maybe – cough – Russian bots trying to rile up Conservative Values supporters.

 

After all, how in the world can secularist and/or atheist Lefties believe they can get away with such a huge violation of the First Amendment, RIGHT?

 

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances. (U.S. Constitution – Amendment 1; USConstitution.net)

 

Ever heard of the book Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury? The book is one of my favorites from my Sci-Fi teen reading days. It should be bought and become required reading for every household to understand the power of State totalitarianism. The book is classic with a 1966 movie based on it AND HBO is coming out with a modern version I believe sometime in May 2018. Here is a less than a minute trailer:

HBO Films presents Fahrenheit 451. In a terrifying care-free future, a young man, Guy Montag, whose job as a fireman is to burn all books, questions his actions after meeting a young girl…and begins to rebel against society. Starring Michael B. Jordan, and Michael Shannon. Coming Soon. READ THE REST

 

Perhaps the Leftist legislators will ban Fahrenheit 451 along with the Bible to make sure their citizens remain ignorant of political totalitarianism.

 

Before you pooh-pooh the idea of the California State legislators banning books, here is the Assembly Bill No. 2943 California Legislative Information published 03/23/2018 09:00 PM.

 

The Bill no where mentions the Bible or the morality of the Christian Faith. However, using commercial practices as a pretext AB 2943 declares all things associated with the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Queer (LGBTQ) lifestyle is a part of the natural order of existence. Thus, the law prohibits any action to change the LGBTQ lifestyle as illegal. I was going to cross post the entirety of AB 2943, then I realized after copying the Act to a separate Word Document that consumed 18 pages, the reading would be a bit mundane. Here is a relevant excerpt affecting Freedom:

 

AB 2943, as amended, Low. Unlawful business practices: sexual orientation change efforts.

 

 

This bill would include, as an unlawful practice prohibited under the Consumer Legal Remedies Act, advertising, offering to engage in, or engaging in sexual orientation change efforts with an individual. The bill would also declare the intent of the Legislature in this regard.

 

 

SECTION 1.

 

The Legislature finds and declares the following:

 

(a) Contemporary science recognizes that being lesbian, gay, bisexual, or transgender is part of the natural spectrum of human identity and is not a disease, disorder, or illness.

 

(b) The American Psychological Association convened the Task Force on Appropriate Therapeutic Responses to Sexual Orientation. The task force conducted a systematic review of peer-reviewed journal literature on sexual orientation change efforts and issued a report in 2009. The task force concluded that sexual orientation change efforts can pose critical health risks to lesbian, gay, and bisexual people, including confusion, depression, guilt, helplessness, hopelessness, shame, social withdrawal, suicidality, substance abuse, stress, disappointment, self-blame, decreased self-esteem and authenticity to others, increased self-hatred, hostility and blame toward parents, feelings of anger and betrayal, loss of friends and potential romantic partners, problems in sexual and emotional intimacy, sexual dysfunction, high-risk sexual behaviors, a feeling of being dehumanized and untrue to self, a loss of faith, and a sense of having wasted time and resources.

 

AB 2943 goes on as pertaining to the LGBTQ lifestyle, to verify LGBTQ morality protections and villainize (perhaps illegalize) Biblical Values by using numerous Leftist social organizations declaring homosexual choice as normal. You can muddle through the entire Bill to read what I mean. Just to be clear, there are some good consumer protections in the Bill pertaining to commerce. The good is heavily obscured though by the intent to make it easy to sue distributors of Christian materials – which would include the Bible – that homosexuality is natural rather an unnatural abomination as stated by the Creator of all that exists.

 

When the Leftist legislators cite all these Leftist organization that embrace the fundamental transformation of America, they don’t include the kind of people that were in charge of their reports and findings. Here are some details they conveniently left out:

SYNOPSIS

 

“Reparative therapy,” “conversion therapy,” and “sexual orientation change efforts” (SOCE) are terms used to describe any efforts to redirect homosexual tendencies toward heterosexual behavior. These processes are strongly opposed by organizations such as the American Psychiatric Association and other counseling groups. The opposition to SOCE approaches is based on three assumptions these groups make. (1) Homosexuality is today considered a normal variant of sexual behavior and not a mental illness. (2) There are no good data to indicate that SOCE approaches have been successful. (3) Traditional religious prohibitions about homosexual behavior are outmoded and need to be revised to be in accordance with modern science. Proponents of SOCE argue that there have been many successes in changing homosexual behavior and desires in a number of individuals. [Bold text by Blog Editor]

 

Professional groups argue that there are no good peer- reviewed studies, but also prohibit their members from being involved in these studies. Policy statements attacking these treatments are not written by an unbiased group; one major statement was written by a team that (with one exception) were all homosexual or bisexual, with all members of the team being well-known homosexual activists.  …

 

 

A 2009 report issued by the American Psychological Association8 restated the organization’s opposition to SOCE efforts and left the impression that this was an impartial and unbiased report. The truth is far different: of the seven members on the task force, five were openly homosexual, one was bisexual, and all seven were active in the “gay rights” movement.9 The composition of the group created an obvious and overwhelming bias toward a homosexual-friendly report. Appropriate Therapeutic Responses dismisses any religious considerations, looks only at peer-reviewed literature that supports their position, and recommends only therapy that encourages acceptance of homosexual behavior.

This is NOT FAKE NEWS: California Pushing Bill to Ban Sale of Bibles (Video)

Absolute Truth from the Word of God

 

Not only are California legislators pushing the bill to ban the sale of Bibles, they are also targeting any Christian books which speak against homosexuality and how to overcome the urges of that lifestyle.

 

From 1.cbn.com

 

One Step Closer to Law: Could a California Bill Ultimately Lead to the Banning of Bibles?

 

VIDEO: URGENT! CALIFORNIA PUSHES BILL TO BAN THE BIBLE AND MATERIAL THAT STATES HOMOSEXUALITY IS A SIN!!!

California bill would criminalize the sale of Bibles and material considered to be offensive to the homosexual community.

 

A pro-LGBTQ bill is quickly making its way through the California state assembly after it was approved on the floor Thursday. The bill now goes to the state Senate for a vote.

 

If passed, Assembly Bill 2943 could ultimately threaten free speech and freedom of religion for Christians.

 

It uses the state’s consumer fraud statute to restrict religious freedom and free speech when it comes to issues of homosexuality and gender identity.

 

This means the bill would make it illegal to distribute resources, sell books, offer counseling services, or direct someone to a biblically based model for getting help with gender confusion and homosexuality.

 

Randy Thomasson with SaveCalifornia.com says the bill is very broad and could affect just about anything helping people overcome same-sex desires.

 

“So, this is a pastor speaking, you pay a ticket to hear him speak. He speaks about overcoming same-sex desires. Hey, that could be outlawed. A church sells a book about overcoming same-sex desires. There’s a sale, there’s a transaction, that could be banned,” Thomasson said.

 

“This is very expansive, very tyrannical and absolutely squashing free speech, religious freedom and basic choice of people. This is an anti-freedom, anti-American bill,” Thomasson told CBN News.

 

Essentially, churches and Christian schools that share biblical teaching on the subject would be open to a lawsuit.

 

CBN News asked Thomasson if this bill could eventually lead to a ban on Bibles or even books from other faiths like the Koran.

 

“Well, you could see this law going into effect. A church bookstore selling the Bible, of course, selling a book about marriage or sexual purity or overcoming homosexuality or overcoming trans-sexuality. You could see a member of the public or even a member of the state government coming and saying, ‘Hey, that’s illegal,’” Thomasson answered.

 

“Even the Muslim community should be against this, too, because of what is said about sexual perversity in the Koran,” Thomasson also said.

 

If AB 2943 clears California’s Senate and is signed into law, it would negatively impact Christian counselors, bookstores, church conferences, as well as medical and health professionals.

 

The bill also seeks to ban biblically based counseling for those wanting to get help.

 

It comes six years after California deemed it illegal for minors to receive counseling for same-sex attraction, even if they and their parents wanted help. Now, this bill would also address adults.

 

“AB 2943 would start by saying, ok, nobody can get counseling to overcome same-sex desires… ok, so no help for adult children, adults who were molested as kids and now they are adults and they say I want help to overcome these feelings. No help for you,” Thomasson explained.

 

The bill states that “contemporary science recognizes that being lesbian, gay, bisexual, or transgender is part of the natural spectrum of human identity and is not a disease, disorder, or illness.”

 

Mat Staver, founder and chairman of Liberty Counsel, told CBN News that what makes this bill especially dangerous is that California often leads the charge in pushing the LGBTQ legislative agenda.

 

California was one of the first states to ban “conversion therapy” for minors. Shortly afterward, Oregon, New Jersey, and Vermont passed similar laws.

 

“People have the right to seek the counsel of their choice, but this bill substitutes the government for personal choice. The implications are staggering, and the result is harmful,” Staver said in a statement to CBN News. – source

 

So, will they ban the Qur’an as well??

 

Come Lord Jesus!

MARANATHA!

The followin[g] quote is from the news article:

 

Begin quote

 

Hawking’s children, Lucy, Robert and Tim, announced their father’s passing in the following statement:

 

We are deeply saddened that our beloved father passed away today. He was a great scientist and an extraordinary man whose work and legacy will live on for many years. His courage and persistence with his brilliance and humor inspired people across the world. He once said, “It would not be much of a universe if it wasn’t home to the people you love.” We will miss him forever.

 

Hawking was first diagnosed with ALS in 1963, at the age of 21. He was only expected to live for another couple of years, but was ultimately discovered to have a rare form of the disease that progressed at a much slower rate. He was able to walk on his own for much of the 1960s with the help of crutches, but eventually required a mobilized wheelchair. When he lost the use of his voice, he began using a unique method of synthesized computer vocalizations that allowed him to remain vocal for the rest of his life.
