200 ex-LGBT men, women rally to show freedom they’ve found in following Jesus

Doug Mainwaring

WASHINGTON, D.C., May 27, 2019 (LifeSiteNews) – Ex-homosexual and ex-transgender men and women from around the country descended upon the Nation’s Capital this weekend for the Second Annual ‘Freedom March’ where they proclaimed the freedom they’ve found in abandoning homosexual and transgender practices.

“Look at this!  This is Amazing!  They say we don’t exist!” declared author and documentary producer M.J. Nixon, a March co-founder, as many gathered for a group picture.  About 200 participated this year—a threefold increase over last year.

 

Former transwoman Jeffrey McCall kicked off the rally on the grounds of the Washington Monument, explaining that nobody here was forced to change; “It was the power of the Holy Spirit and the grace of Jesus Christ that fell on all of us.”

One testimony after another from the racially diverse group of mostly millennials spoke about their personal conversion to Jesus and the freedom they have found from lives dominated by active homosexuality or gender dysphoria.

Our identity is not in our sexuality; it is in Jesus Christ

Angel Colon, who survived the Pulse Nightclub massacre Orlando, Florida where 49 died, told his harrowing conversion story which began that night three years ago.

“As I lay on the ground shot multiple times —couldn’t move— I said to the Lord, ‘I am not leaving this building dead tonight,’” recounted Colon.

“You promised me I have a purpose in life.  You promised my Mom that the baby inside of her womb was special and [You] had a purpose for his life,” he said. “I am not leaving here dead, Lord; I am leaving here alive and when I do, I am going to worship you for the rest of my life.”

Colon has kept his promise to God, traveling the world preaching about the freedom he has found in Jesus Christ.

“That promise was not easy at all, but look at today,” said Colon.  “Look at all these overcomers here, celebrating that there is change in Jesus Christ.”

Colon explained that the true meaning of deliverance and freedom is being able to look at temptation in the eye and say, “I don’t want you, I want Jesus.”

“That’s how you know you are free,” he added.  “Our identity is not in our sexuality; it is in Jesus Christ.”

“It wasn’t a ‘gay to straight’ thing; It was a ‘lost to saved’ thing.”

A second Pulse Nightclub survivor, Luis Ruiz, said that like many of the people participating in the March the reason why he was there is ultimately because he had a “mother and a father that never compromised the Gospel.”

“They prayed and prayed and believed not in my situation, but in my destiny, my identity found in Christ Jesus.”

“It wasn’t a ‘gay to straight’ thing,” said Ruiz, “It was a ‘lost to saved’ thing.”

“We were all born into sin, baby,” continued Ruiz.  “Even though I might be tempted every day, I choose Jesus.”

“He’s the only man in my life,” he added.  “I chose ‘Him’ over ‘him.’”

“I thank God for this Freedom March.  I thank God for what he is doing in our nation’s capital.  As a combat veteran of fifteen years in the United States Army, today I go to war with you guys,” said Ruiz pointing to the crowd.

“This is a new day, baby,” he exclaimed.

After the rally, the group marched around the Washington Monument, across the Constitution Avenue to the Ellipse, and back, chanting, “The Lion of the God of Judah is roaring, he’s roaring, to set the captives free.”  (Click to Source)

10 amendments to keep the pro-LGBT ‘Equality Act’ from persecuting Christians

May 20, 2019 (LifeSiteNews) — Well, they did it. Nancy Pelosi’s rogue lawmakers passed the anti-Christian, anti-health, anti-morality, anti-child “Equality Act” (H.R. 5). And so now it heads to the Senate.

Where timid, compromised Republicans wait to offer amendments they can hide behind. We can hope Mitch McConnell never brings this bill to the floor.

But watchfulness is needed. Lindsey Graham (S.C.) is chairman of the Judiciary Committee. Keep an eye on Rob Portman (Ohio); Mitt Romney (Utah); Richard Burr (N.C.); Susan Collins (Maine); possibly Martha McSally (Ariz.); and of course, Lisa Murkowski (Alaska). There’s more than enough to worry about.

And Trump has stated he has reservations but has not committed to a veto.

But hold on. Maybe there are amendments that would make H.R. 5 (and its Senate version, S. 788) acceptable. Here’s a possible list:

1. Let’s see an amendment that upholds religious liberty: “Nothing in this act will infringe upon the First Amendment religious freedom rights of any citizen, nor bar RFRA (the Religious Freedom Restoration Act) as a defense for a cause of action.”

The Human Rights Campaign along with Joe Biden calls religious objections “a license to discriminate.” But let’s not worry about them as we remove a bit of  totalitarianism from S. 788.

Let’s continue, because much, much more is needed.

2. In the spirit of truth over mythology, let’s amend the bill’s definitions with a crucial clarification: “Nothing in this bill is to imply that ‘lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer’ (‘LGBTQ’) behaviors are immutable like race. Fourteenth Amendment defenses are therefore inapplicable. Nor are those who identify as ex-homosexuals or ex-transgenders to be subject to unconstitutional First Amendment or civil rights’ violations.”

But wait! There’s more.

3. Another amendment should remove all barriers to counseling choice. Period. The act at present would accelerate bans on talk therapy (pejoratively labeled “conversion therapy”) for all teens and even adults. The act labels such help “discrimination.”

Because no one ever chooses this counseling willingly, right? No teen in the history of the world has ever logically observed that human bodies don’t fit “LGBT” or “Q” behaviors and then sought freedom from disordered desires. If a teen undergoes counseling to overcome homosexual attractions or gender confusion, it’s always under heavy pressure by redneck, right-wing, Bible-thumping parents, right?

Incorrect. Without such therapy, one writer says he would have killed himself as a teen.

But we are not done.

4. “It shall not be considered an act of ‘discrimination’ under this Act to reveal in a classroom or for other educational purposes, the high risks and medical consequences of ‘LGBTQ’ behaviors. This may include citing HIV/AIDS surveillancedata on ‘males who have sex with males’ or the high correlation found in the Youth Risk Behavior Survey (CDC) in 9th to 12th graders who identify as ‘gay, lesbian or bisexual’ with early sexual activity, substance abuse and other behavioral risk factors; or by noting the potential health hazards of opposite-sex hormones on adolescent growth and development; or the overall negative outcomes of a ‘transgender’ identity, including the higher prevalence of suicide ideation.”

Let’s continue that line of thought:

5. Concerning parental rights, one amendment should allow parents to remove their children from any school discussion of “sexual orientation” or “gender identity.” And if lesson plans feature condoms; chemical castration; oral and anal sex; and all the deviant elements the Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network (GLSEN) insists belong in an “inclusive” sex ed curriculum, parents and also school boards have the right to bring these lessons to a halt without being labeled as bigots and haters, being trashed in the local media, having their phone numbers given out so they and their children get threatening phone calls, or having their employers contacted so they get fired.

Speaking of endangering other people, there’s another action needed:

6. The Equality Act could definitely use an amendment that removes the entire “transgender” (“T”)  sub-group of the “LGBTQ” coalition. Isn’t it kind of an albatross? The whole “non-discrimination” measure would be sleeker and speedier minus disputes about bathrooms, female sports, women’s shelters, and the obvious dangers to women (and sanity) that some progressives suddenly don’t see.

And as the gender rebellion lobby screams from coast to coast, let’s deal with the assault on biology and the unborn.

7. Clarification: “Nothing in this bill is to be construed as overturning federal restrictions on abortion funding, or altering current definitions of ‘sex’ in federal law. This definition shall continue to rely on biological sex as determined at birth.”

And:

8. “An employee shall not be found to have committed employment discrimination as a result any of the following: social media postings outside  work time, profession of evangelical Christian faith, unwillingness to verbally affirm ‘LGBTQ’ behaviors or same-sex unions, starting an employee group for Christians or conservatives, professing support for a known conservative political figure, or for refusing to be a vendor for a same-sex ceremony or other homosexuality-affirming event.”

We cannot forget to add this one:

9. “‘Public accommodations’ in this bill are not to include church facilities, church property, religious organizations, synagogues, or any church camp or faith-based wedding venue. Public accommodations are not to include schools, youth-related organizations, camps, or any locale where children or teens gather, because of the documented adverse effects and destabilizing influence of homosexuality and gender confusion on youth.”

Last but not least:

10. “Nothing in this act shall prevent a health care professional from refusing to provide puberty-blocking medications to nine-year-olds, or from refusing to prescribe testosterone to teen girls or estrogen to teen boys, or from declining participation in surgery to amputate the healthy breasts of 13-year-old girls, or the penises of 16- year-old boys. Health care conscience freedom is not to be infringed by the inequalities embedded in the ‘Equality Act.’”

Okay, I might be dreaming — but then, I dream of an America where homosexuals and gender anarchists are not in charge.

What’s left in H.R. 5/S. 788? It’s been pretty well stripped bare. That’s perfectly okay with me and millions of other Americans. (Click to Source)

LIBERALS ARE PRESSING HARD TO MAKE PEDOPHILIA LEGAL IN PREPARATION OF SHARIA LAW IN AMERICA

For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.

17 For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith: as it is written, The just shall live by faith.

18 For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness;

19 Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed it unto them.

20 For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse:

21 Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened.

22 Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools,

23 And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things.

24 Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves:

25 Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.

26 For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature:

27 And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.

28 And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient;

29 Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers,

30 Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents,

31 Without understanding, covenantbreakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful:

32 Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them. (Romans 1:16-32)

 

“A man can have sexual pleasure from a child as young as a baby. However, he should not penetrate vaginally, but sodomising the child is acceptable. If a man does penetrate and damage the child then, he should be responsible for her subsistence all her life. This girl will not count as one of his four permanent wives and the man will not be eligible to marry the girl’s sister… It is better for a girl to marry at such a time when she would begin menstruation at her husband’s house, rather than her father’s home. Any father marrying his daughter so young will have a permanent place in heaven.” Tahrirolvasyleh, fourth edition, Qom, Iran, 1990

May 20, 2015

The goal of the Muslim Brotherhood and all of its minions, is world domination. That is, to instate Sharia law in every country. We are seeing this in America right now. The Islamization of Dearborn is so blatant, that Americans tread lightly there, and some are in a constant state of fear. We are seeing it in Texas.

UPDATE MAY 20 2019: This article was written exactly 4 years ago today. So where do we stand on the subject of Liberals, Islam, pedophilia and Sharia Law? It’s worse than you might think. True, the Islam-loving Barack Hussein Obama is no longer president, Donald Trump is. But the wheels set in motion during Obama’s presidency remain largely in motion in 2019. In just a few short years, the Democratic Party has gone waaaay to the Left and become Socialist, and already elected two Muslim women to Congress who hate the Jews and hate Israel. The LGBTQ+ is more aggressive than ever, and with each passing day grow closer to adding the ‘P’ for pedophile to their umbrella of protection. Sadly, we have moved closer to what we warned you about in this article, much closer. 

Original article from 2015 follows here below:

I know that the greater percentage of readers of NTEB are Christian, and the content of that article was so disgusting – I told people to stop reading if they could not handle knowing what the Muslims do. It’s all from the Qu’ran. Muhammad literally wrote the book on perversion.

I wrote on the practice of Islamic female genital mutilation. I also wrote about grown men having sex or foreplay with girls younger than nine years old. Oh yes! Even the Ayatollah summed up the guidelines of how men are to derive sexual pleasure with young girls and boys according to their book:

“A MAN CAN HAVE SEXUAL PLEASURE FROM A CHILD AS YOUNG AS A BABY. HOWEVER, HE SHOULD NOT PENETRATE VAGINALLY, BUT SODOMISING THE CHILD IS ACCEPTABLE. IF A MAN DOES PENETRATE AND DAMAGE THE CHILD THEN, HE SHOULD BE RESPONSIBLE FOR HER SUBSISTENCE ALL HER LIFE. THIS GIRL WILL NOT COUNT AS ONE OF HIS FOUR PERMANENT WIVES AND THE MAN WILL NOT BE ELIGIBLE TO MARRY THE GIRL’S SISTER… IT IS BETTER FOR A GIRL TO MARRY AT SUCH A TIME WHEN SHE WOULD BEGIN MENSTRUATION AT HER HUSBAND’S HOUSE, RATHER THAN HER FATHER’S HOME. ANY FATHER MARRYING HIS DAUGHTER SO YOUNG WILL HAVE A PERMANENT PLACE IN HEAVEN.” TAHRIROLVASYLEH, FOURTH EDITION, QOM, IRAN, 1990

liberals-pressing-hard-for-legalized-pedophilia-to-prepare-america-for-sharia-law-islam-muslims

After reading that, can you understand that men in Islamic culture, consider boys, girls and women to be “property” and not a person. And can you believe that the greatest cheerleaders of these perverts are the liberal press and our liberal politicians? Liberalism IS a mental disorder. I’m convinced of that.

Sharia Law

Ok, now stay with me: The goal of the Muslim Brotherhood and all of its minions, is world domination. That is, to instate Sharia law in every country. We are seeing this in America right now. The Islamization of Dearborn, MI, AKA Dearbornistan, is so blatant, that Americans tread lightly there, and some are in a constant state of fear. We are seeing it in Texas. There are outcries by Americans, but the Islamists are bound and determined to see America with Sharia law in all 50 States.

But in order to achieve this lofty goal of Sharia Law, something MUST be done about those pesky pedophilia laws in every state. Enter NY Times.

“Hey remember when crazy right wingers predicted that gay marriage would lead to legalizing polygamy? Well that happened. Also they predicted that the next step would be to seek the same civil rights protections for pedophiles. And that’s happening in no less a forum than the New York Times which couldn’t find any terrorists to slot into its op-ed page and went with pedophilia instead.

How can you possibly make child rape sympathetic? Liberals always find a way.

Think back to your first childhood crush. Maybe it was a classmate or a friend next door. Most likely, through school and into adulthood, your affections continued to focus on others in your approximate age group. But imagine if they did not.

By some estimates, 1 percent of the male population continues, long after puberty, to find themselves attracted to prepubescent children. These people are living with pedophilia, a sexual attraction to prepubescents that often constitutes a mental illness.

This is so dishonest on so many levels that if boggles the mind. Pedophilia isn’t some sort of delayed development. Like rape, it’s about power. It’s not a mental illness. No more than homosexuality is. Framing it this way suggests that it’s something everyone grows out of.

But this is the liberal playbook.

1. Make evil seem relatable and sympathetic

2. Project its actions as uncontrollable due to persecution

3. Suggest that understanding evil will prevent it from committing more abuses

All three are present here.

A second misconception is that pedophilia is a choice. Recent research, while often limited to sex offenders — because of the stigma of pedophilia — suggests that the disorder may have neurological origins.

Well if it’s not a choice, then it’s not a crime. Men with pedophilia are three times more likely to be left-handed or ambidextrous, a finding that strongly suggests a neurological cause.

Gays are also more likely to be left-handed. But assuming that there’s a neurological cause confuses correlation with causation at best. Without legal protection, a pedophile cannot risk seeking treatment or disclosing his status to anyone for support. He could lose his job, and future job prospects We should make a sitcom to teach people to accept them.

maps-minor-attracted-persons-pedophiles-want-inclusion-lgbtq-movement-end-times

There’s no question that the extension of civil rights protections to people with pedophilia must be weighed against the health and safety needs of others, especially kids. It stands to reason that a pedophile should not be hired as a grade-school teacher.

Oh, you kidders. Ten years from now they’ll have to hire them or be sued for discrimination. Twenty years later, Disney will punish employees who work in the boy scouts because they won’t let pedophiles become Scoutmasters.

We already saw this movie. We know how it ends.

The direct-threat analysis rejects the idea that employers can rely on generalizations; they must assess the specific case and rely on evidence, not presuppositions. Those who worry that employers would be compelled to hire dangerous pedophiles should look to H.I.V. case law, where for years courts were highly conservative, erring on the side of finding a direct threat, even into the late 1990s, when medical authorities were in agreement that people with H.I.V. could work safely in, for example, food services.

So we shouldn’t worry that courts will force schools to hire pedophiles as teachers because they forced cafeterias to hire workers with HIV?

Arguing for the rights of scorned and misunderstood groups is never popular, particularly when they are associated with real harm. It’s always popular when you’re a liberal. Unlike arguing for the rights of children abused by the liberal victim of the month.

The Americans With Disabilities Act of 1990 and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 prohibit discrimination against otherwise qualified individuals with mental disabilities, in areas such as employment, education and medical care. Congress, however, explicitly excluded pedophilia from protection under these two crucial laws.

future-must-not-belong-to-those-who-slander-prophet-islam-mohammad-barack-hussein-obama-muslim-united-nations-september-25-2012

Okay I’m done. Will the last one still subscribing to the New York Times please use it to clean this up. Now the New York Times chose to run this, but censored McCain’s op-ed when he was running against Obama. That says it all. [1] – source

So you see, this is the newest liberal goal. They must make pedophilia a choice, not a crime! These knuckleheads are so pro Muslim/Sharia law/and Jihad, they are willing to allow these twisted, animalistic perverts, to hurt our children for the sake of their great cause. The liberals are completely duped into believing that the jihadist Muslims love them, because they speak for them.

What a surprise it will be, when the liberal press and politicians are thrown to their knees and hear the words “Submit or die!” All we can do at this point is get on OUR knees and pray to our Lord that He might give America one more chance.

Personally, I believe it’s too late. (Click to Source)

MassResistance helping people stop the tyrannical LGBT “Equality Act” now in Congress

Would re-write nation’s Civil Rights laws to force compliance with radical homosexual and transgender agenda – in all facets of life!

Equates true “civil rights” with sexual perversion. See powerful VIDEO below!

We launched effort to help people take it directly to their Congressmen!

May 7, 2019

The US House of Representatives is poised to pass the most extreme and tyrannical national LGBT law in history. Bill HR5, deceitfully titled the “Equality Act,” would radically re-write the nation’s Civil Rights laws to force the homosexual and transgender agendas into the lives of every citizen, with oppressive penalties for those who refuse. (See HR5 summary and text.)

For months, MassResistance has been working to derail this – helping citizens target their Congressmen, especially those in key House positions.

An unbelievably horrible bill

We’ve all seen the horrors that have already happened following various state and local pro-LGBT laws, along with similar Obama-era federal directives: Bakers, photographers, and others being sued. Businesses forced to hire “transgenders.” Schools forced to allow boys to play on girls’ sports teams and change in girls’ locker rooms. A teacher fired for refusing to use a “transgender” student’s preferred pronouns. Courts overruling parents’ objections to their minor child’s “transition” treatments. Aggressive LGBT indoctrination required in K-12 schools, hospitals, and businesses with government contracts. A New York City law stipulating heavy fines for “misgendering” someone.

But that’s just the beginning. The national LGBT lobby has crafted an extremely tyrannical bill that includes all the issues above and much more – all woven into the federal Civil Rights laws! Nothing like this has ever been seen anywhere.

Dangers of the “Equality Act”

  • It would force compliance of the radical (and lunatic) LGBT agenda into every person’s life – in businesses, public accommodations, jury selection, schools, hospitals and clinics, social life, even churches!
  • It would empower the Department of Justice to enforce the Act in federal courts.
  • It writes into federal law radical concepts (“sexual orientation” and “gender identity”) and creates a protected class for people with a psychiatric disorder (“gender dysphoria”).
  • The bill is purposefully loosely written – to ensure latitude for the activist judges.
  • It gives only minimal, vague definitions for the terms “sexual orientation” and “gender identity,” guaranteeing that legal chaos will ensue. For example, many radicals consider pedophilia a “sexual orientation” – which could end up becoming protected! What other perverted practices might be protected? ProstitutionBDSM (bondage and sadomasochism), bestiality.
  • The legal definition of “sex” (the biological category of male or female) would be altered to include (undefined) “sexual orientation” and “gender identity” everywhere the word “sex” appears in federal non-discrimination law.
  • The Act hijacks the legitimate Civil Rights movement by incorporating the LGBT agenda into the nation’s civil rights laws. Thus, it equates the civil rights of racial minorities – based on immutable characteristics – with chosen sexual perversions. This is extremely offensive to black Americans who fought so hard for their rights! Yet members of Congress seem to have no problem with this immoral equation.
  • The Act would acknowledge “same-sex marriage” in official federal law – rather than just leaving it a dishonest Supreme Court decision (like the Dred Scott and abortion rulings).
  • In one curious section of the bill (which expands the list of “public accommodations” covered by anti-discrimination law), we are informed: “Many places of public accommodation recognize the economic imperative to offer goods and services to as many consumers as possible.” This passage could be used to protect “transgender” men using women’s bathrooms and locker rooms, BDSM orgies in hotels, or pedophile conferences.
  • Goodbye to freedom of religion on LGBT issues. Many have noted that religious speech critical of “sexual orientation and gender identity” could be considered unlawful discrimination. Not even churches will be exempt as they could be considered “public accommodations” (“a place or establishment that provides … gathering…; any establishment that provides a good, service, or program”).

Powerful forces behind it

The usual crowd of powerful (and fanatical) anti-family and anti-Christian forces is behind this.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has made this bill a top priority to pass this year. It has 240 co-sponsors among the US House members, including several Republicans. Over 150 major US corporations, as well as the US Chamber of Commerce, are aggressively supporting it.

Here is our information page on HR5 – the Equality Act,including a collection of excellent articles from various pro-family groups describing it in detail.

MassResistance got in this fight early

Congressional Democrats had introduced a somewhat weaker version HR5 in previous years, but it got no traction under the Republican House majority. This year, with the Democrats in control again, Nancy Pelosi had promised to pass a super-charged version of it.

Bill HR5 was formally introduced on March 13, 2019, but MassResistance got into this battle several weeks before that. Back in January, we began discussing this with a group of prominent pastors and pro-family activists. From that, the ad-hoc group “Gone2Far” came together. It was clear to everyone that the “Equality Act” would be a huge threat to Christians and would criminalize their beliefs on LGBT issues.

The pastors in the group were especially outraged by the repulsive insult to black Americans who remember the true Civil Rights movement. That sexual perversion could piggy-back on their legitimate struggle is beyond belief. But possibly even worse, the Congressional Black Caucus, made up mostly of Democrats, is clearly supporting this hideous bill to please their Party, while completely abandoning their constituents back home.

The Gone2Far group determined that a top priority must be to pressure these despicable Congressional Black Caucus members to OPPOSE this bill!

The battle began in February – A press conference in Washington DC!

On Feb. 5, 2019, the new Gone2Far group held a press conference at the National Press Club in Washington, DC.

ALT TEXTThe National Press Club, located in the National Press Building in downtown Washington DC, is the major venue for the establishment media.

The speakers were: Dr. Randy Short of Washington, DC; Pastor Stephen Broden of Dallas; Pastor Dan Fisher of Oklahoma; Pastor Stephen Black of Oklahoma; Pastor Scott Lively of Springfield, MA; Peter LaBarbera of Americans for Truth; and Brian Camenker of MassResistance.

The press conference was a barn-burner! Dr. Short and Pastor Broden gave a shot across the bow to the political establishment of both parties. They said loud and clear that (1) America will not stand for the Civil Rights movement being made part of the destructive homosexual and transgender movement. (2) The Congressional Black Caucus is being held responsible for this, and they had better remember exactly who they represent.

VIDEO: Black Pastors tell the truth about the “Equality Act”! (12 min 34 sec)

Some of the speakers at the press conference that day included:

Pastor Stephen Broden
Dr. Randy Short
Peter LaBarbera holds up our book, “The Health Hazards of Homosexuality” durng his speech.
Brian Camenker of MassResistance

The room was nearly full, but none of the major conservative press outlets that were there (and at least one of them brought a video crew!) subsequently wrote anything about it. The message that day was clearly too hard-hitting and controversial, even for them. But no matter – this will not stay bottled up!

ALT TEXTBreitbart even sent a videographer to cover the event — then punted on actually reporting on it!

After the press conference, the Gone2Far group has continued to spread the message about the upcoming bill around the country. And MassResistance began planning our next steps.

ALT TEXTThe press conference certainly got the attention of the rabid LGBT movement. This reporter for the infantile “Right Wing Watch” (center, holding camera) sat in the front row. After being in a room with conservatives who aren’t afraid to tell the truth he went back and had a meltdown!

The following month, on March 15, the “Equality Act” was introduced and prominent pro-family groups have joined the fight.

ALT TEXTPastor Scott Lively, also a speaker that day, is interviewed by a local conservative reporter after the press conference.

Taking it directly to members of Congress – in their districts!

This is where MassResistance is different than the other national groups.

Other groups have done an excellent job of informing people and educating them about the dangers of this horrible bill. They have also brought powerful speakers to testify at the Congressional hearings and talk before the national press. And they encourage people to contact their Congressmen, or members of the House committees taking up the bill. That’s all very important.

But MassResistance has been organizing people on the ground. When Democrat members of Congress pushing this bill have been in their districts holding “town hall” events or other activities, we try to be there to confront them on this bill. We make them talk about it. We make them answer the hard questions. We make it very clear that they need to cater to their constituents – not well-heeled special interests who want to subvert America’s laws. This is very important, also!

We started out “at the top” – at the town hall of the chairman of the Congressional Black Caucus, Rep. Katy Hill, whose district is in suburban Los Angeles. It was a bit of a shock for her! From there we’ve been in Maryland, Nevada, Utah, Oklahoma, Texas, and other parts of California. We are organizing people in New York (5 districts!), South Carolina, and Virginia.

In our next post, we will write about our confrontation at Rep. Katy Hill’s town hall. You’ll see for yourself what it looks like! (Click to Source)

TEXANS RESPOND TO LIBERAL #BANTHEBIBLE BILL EFFORTS

by James Wesolek
February 7, 2019

Austin, Texas – After Texas Values Action sounded the alarm on Democrat bills filed before the Texas Legislature that would effectively #BanTheBible, conservatives from across Texas and around the country have responded in force. Through our action center at NoBibleBan.com Texans have sent over 37,000 messages and phone calls to the Governor, Lt. Governor, State Senators, and State House members. These efforts have garnered attention from national news agencies and high profile bloggers. Conservative commentator Erick Erickson discussed the issueThe Federalist and Empower Texans published blog pieces about it, PJ MediaLifeSite NewsCBNOne News NowThe Stream and many others also wrote about these highly controversial bills.

Despite this overwhelming support to stop #BanTheBible Bills, some are not getting the message. More #BanTheBible bills; such as HB 978 and HB 1190 were introduced shortly after Texas Values Action called attention to the first round of #BanTheBible bills. And just this week Carrolton, Texas passed a #BanTheBible ordinance.

Hiding under the disguise of “sexual orientation and gender identity” these bills would create new government power and protections which ban the free expression of Biblical beliefs, especially it’s teaching on marriage and sexuality. Numerous bills seek to ban religious beliefs and force people of faith to conform to the personal and political activities of others. Those who do not comply will face fines, possible jail time, or other criminal charges.

Jonathan Saenz, President of Texas Values, said “These ‘Ban the Bible’ bills at the Texas Legislature are an aggressive effort to create excessive government control over peoples’ lives. Creating more government control and threatening Christians with jail time or fines is putting personal politics over constitutional liberty.”

Ann Hettinger, State Director for CWALAC of Texas, said “Any inclusion of men in women’s private spaces is a gross violation of their privacy and safety. It is the job of every legislator to protect Texas women and we strongly oppose these ‘Ban the Bible’ bills.”

Many of the #BanTheBible bills before the Texas Legislature are authored by members of the new LGBT Caucus, which has claimed to unveil a “transformative” agenda. This agenda doesn’t seem to include any of the bi-partisan issues Gov. Abbott and State Leaders are ready to work on, like school finance or property tax reform. Instead, they bring divisive legislation to criminalize Christians and people of faith.

HB 978 by Rep. Beckley continues the attacks on Christian views of the family by:

  • Eliminating the words man and woman throughout the Family Code when discussing marriage.
  • Eliminates the words husband and wife when discussing marriage.
  • Eliminates mother and father when discussing both parents in a male/female marriage.
  • Deletes “father child relationship” in relation to a section of code that says father child relationships may not be determined at birth when issuing a birth certificate. Instead, the code will read that “parent child relationship” may not be determined at birth.
  • Deletes the term “husband” from the Health and Safety Code Section 2.06, in regards to female patients, and instead adds the term “male spouse.”

HB 1190 by Rep. Hernandez

  • Allows the government to punish counselors, marriage and family therapists, psychologists or other mental health providers who work with people from a Christian perspective.
  • If these providers in any way discourage homosexual behavior or the desire for a gender transition surgery- including at the request of the client- they face disciplinary action by a regulatory committee.
  • It could force a therapist to disclose intimate details of private counseling sessions that are revealed in public court.

Christian Teacher Called Nazi, Fired For Opposing Transgender Lessons in School

Mother of two’s life turned upside down for critiquing LGBT lessons 

By: Pippa Monroe  |@NeonNettle on 21st April 2019 @ 6.00pm

A Christian teaching assistant who dared to voice her opinion on about transgender teaching at her son’s primary school has been fired. Mother of two Christie Higgs had a faultless track record and reputation in her teaching profession, but that came to a grinding halt when she dared to question LGBT lessons being forced upon her son.

Higg’s life was turned upside down when a single anonymous complaint was accusing her of offending gay and transgender pupils.

trans-les0-39s

Ironically, many gay and transgender teenagers turned to Higgins for emotional and practical support. Following the accusation, Higgs was immediately suspended before being fired.The school governor compared her to a pro-Nazi, far-Right extremist.

School chiefs later question why she had used her school email to receive ‘inspirational’ quotations from the Bible;A school governor told her she had no ‘absolute right’ to freedom of speech.Ironically, many gay and transgender teenagers turned to Higgins for emotional and practical support.

‘I loved my job, and I loved the children that I cared for,’ she says.‘It wasn’t just kids who were in trouble; I also helped children who were gay or changing gender.

When they came to my office, I opened my arms to them and treated them like any other young people.

I never discriminated against them and never would.’According to the DailyMail: Kristie’s ordeal began in October when the Church of England primary school attended by her youngest son adopted ‘No Outsiders’ teaching about sexual minorities.

The same programme has generated a row between schools and Muslim parents in Birmingham.

Books given to children as young as four include stories about a boy who wants to wear a dress and one about a red crayon that discovers it is blue.

Kristie felt that her son was too young to appreciate the issues so, with the agreement of teachers, excluded the nine-year-old from the lessons.

The statement in the books that people can change gender at will jarred with her firmly held Christian beliefs.

The dubious teaching programme ‘No Outsiders’ was created by gay assistant head teacher Andrew Moffat in 2014 to promote tolerance of sexual minorities.

It is now taught at primary schools across England and Wales but has sparked protests among Muslims in Birmingham where parents have withdrawn pupils from lessons.

Children as young as four are taught about same-sex relationships and transgender people using brightly illustrated books.

Kristie felt that her son was too young to appreciate the issues so, with the agreement of teachers, excluded the nine-year-old from the lessons The ‘No Outsiders’ programme is not officially part of the Government projects to make relationships education compulsory in primary schools next year but last month schools watchdog Ofsted gave it is backing.

In a recent interview, Tory MP Andrea Leadsom said it was ‘absolutely right’ for parents to be allowed to choose what age their children should be taught about LGBT issues.

Never anticipating the catastrophic consequences, she posted on her Facebook page a petition, which did not originate from her, against Government plans to make ‘relationships education’ compulsory in schools adding: ‘They are brainwashing our children!’

While some may not agree with the petition’s views, it’s hard to understand why it caused so much offense.

It alerts parents to the plans, pointing out: ‘Children will be taught… gender is a matter of choice, not biology so that it’s up to them what sex they are.

At the same time, it means that expressing and teaching fundamental Christian beliefs, relating to the creation of men and women and marriage, will in practice become forbidden – because they conflict with the new morality and are seen as indoctrination into unacceptable religious bigotry.’

It continues: ‘Freedom of belief will be destroyed, with freedom of speech permitted only for those who toe the party line!’The online petition then warned: ‘We say again, this is a vicious form of totalitarianism aimed at suppressing Christianity.

’Kristie then put up a second Facebook post linking to an American blog criticizing schools for using children’s books to teach youngsters about changing sex.

The blogger, who argues that someone’s sex can only be biologically determined, branded the stories a ‘perversion of the truth’ and ‘a form of child abuse.

’Kristie says: ‘My only crime was to share information about what was happening in schools with other parents and I can’t see what was so terrible about that.

‘I was raising concerns about my son being educated in matters that are not aligned with my religious beliefs and people could choose to agree or disagree.

I would never tell others what to think.‘My bigger worry was that they were introducing the confusing idea of changing gender to children at such a young age.

’Kristie’s accuser, one of her Facebook friends, complained to her headteacher in an email on October 26 last year and asked the school to keep their identity secret.

Kristie has never been allowed to challenge them and still doesn’t know the identity of her accuser.In the message, the unnamed parent, whose child attends Farmor’s School, alleged that Kristie had been ‘posting homophobic and prejudiced views against the LGBT community on Facebook.

’And in light of her ‘offensive’ views, they were worried that the softly spoken pastoral assistant ‘may exert influence over the vulnerable pupils who may end up in isolation’ – the very pupils she had been helping for seven years.

Days later Kristie was called into the headmaster’s office without warning and told she was suspended pending an investigation into whether she had broken the school’s code of conduct.

After hearing the allegations against her, Kristie told the headmaster that millions of Christians around the world shared her view.

He insisted the suspension had nothing to do with her religion, but she suspects he had been warned to say that to avoid allegations of religious discrimination against her.

‘It had everything to do with my Christianity. To suggest otherwise is ridiculous’, she says

.In the weeks after her suspension, which she was banned from discussing with anyone, Kristie was ordered to attend two further ‘investigation’ meetings with the school’s human resources officer

In the second of these sessions, it emerged that the school had been trawling through her work emails in search of any wrongdoing.

Bizarrely, one school official demanded to know if she had used her professional email address to subscribe to a Christian broadcast service that sent out daily inspirational Bible readings.

‘I could not believe they had gone into my email messages looking for evidence that I was a Christian. It felt as if I was being persecuted for my faith,’ Kristie says. (Click to Source)

Thousands of Outraged Parents Rally At State Capitol Over Hyper-Sexualized K-12 Curriculum

Sexually explicit language unsuitable for radio is taught to elementary school children

By Katy Grimes, March 28, 2019 3:35 pm

California public schools aren’t your grandfather’s schools any longer. Today’s lesson plans are written by Social Justice Warriors and LGBT activists, and enshrined in the California education code. But what is being foisted on children as young as age five, cannot even be uttered on the public airways, because radio stations would receive a violation letter from the Federal Communications Commission.

If sexually explicit language is unsuitable for public consumption on radio, wouldn’t it also be unsuitable for elementary school children?

Thousands of fired up moms, dads, preachers, pastors, teachers, grandparents and concerned citizens rallied at the State Capitol Thursday to protest plans to add even more sexualized content to California’s K-12 “health” curriculum. Informed Parents of California and the California Family Council organized the rally over the curriculum proposals, and then walked a few blocks to the State Department of Education for the Instructional Quality Commission Meeting to make public comment on the proposed Health Curriculum Frameworks.

The public comments went on for hours.

What’s their beef?

The California Department of Education, Instructional Quality Commission, and State Board of Education are currently in the process of revising the 2019 Health Education Curriculum Framework for California Public Schools, Kindergarten Through 12th Grade, scheduled for adoption by the State Board of Education in May 2019.

Informed Parents of California pulled together the most objectionable portions of the 1000 page framework document in a 24 page summary with excerpts for K-6th grade health lessons, complete with pictures of some of the recommended supplemental materials. This document includes:

Elementary School: It is permissible to teach knowledge and skills related to comprehensive sexual health and HIV prevention education in grades kindergarten through grade six (K–6), inclusive. All instruction and materials in grades K–6 must meet the instructional criteria or baseline requirements in EC Section 51933. Content that is required in grades 7–12 may be also be included in an age-appropriate way in earlier grades. (EC sections 51933, 51934[b].)
(This information has been copied directly from the California Department of Education Website.

Kindergarten: “Students also learn about individual differences, including gender, from a very early age… students can still begin to challenge gender stereotypes in a way that is age appropriate. While students may not fully understand the concepts of gender expression and identity, some children in kindergarten and even younger have identified as transgender or understand they have a gender identity that is different from their sex assigned at birth. This may present itself in different ways including dress, activity preferences, experimenting with dramatic play, and feeling uncomfortable self-identifying with their sex assigned at birth.”

Grade 1: Parents, guardians, or caretakers receive a handout with suggestions on how to initiate a conversation on growth and development with their child. Books such as It’s Not the Stork! A Book About Girls, Boys, Babies, Bodies, Families and Friends by Robie H. Harris (2008) or Who Are You?: The Kids Guide to Gender Identity by Brook Pessin‐Whedbee (2017) can be shared together.

In Grade 4 the California Department of Education teaches, “An estimated 3.1 percent of California high school students reported being sexually active before the age of 13. Approximately 32.3 percent of high school students are sexually active, making sexual health education a critical content area in late elementary.”

This curriculum also includes:

  • Kindergarten books that introduce 5-year-olds to families with members who identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender.
  • First grade gender vocabulary lessons on words such as third gender, trans, queergender, non-binary, gender fluid, gender neutral, agender, bigender, and two-spirits.
  • Lessons for 1st graders that provide detailed descriptions of sex with these quotes such as: “The man’s penis goes inside the woman’s vagina,” and “sperm can swim out through the small opening in the man’s penis – and into the woman’s vagina.”
  • Pictures in a book for third graders showing a cartoon drawing of a penis ejaculating sperm while inserted into a vagina.
  • Lessons which teach third graders that sexual reproductive organs don’t always match a person’s gender.
  • Recommendations that fifth graders are taught sexual health lessons that must include examples of same-sex sexual activity. Students should not be separated by sex during these lessons to avoid “misgendering” students.
  • Books that introduce 10-year-olds to anal sex, and the slang for male and female genitals.

Grade 5: “Fifth-grade students will have an opportunity to learn that gender is not strictly defined by physical anatomy or sex assigned at
birth. Rather, students understand that gender refers to attitudes, feelings, characteristics, and behaviors that a given culture associates with being male or female, sometimes labeled “masculine” and “feminine.” Moreover, a person’s gender identity refers to their sense of self, while gender expression refers to their outward gender presentation including physical appearance and behaviors. Understanding individual differences will help students feel accepted and be more accepting.”

Rally Opposing Sexualized Curriculum

Several parents at the rally had some of these authorized school books with them. The photos (by CaliforniaGlobe) are from these books, teaching children as young as age 5, inappropriate slang for male and female body parts which might even make a drunken sailor blush.

At the rally there were parents from all walks of life, ethnicities and religions. Speakers included Kira Davis, an op-ed journalist and co-host of the Smart Girl Politics podcast, Gina Yee, a children’s minister and author of the upcoming book “Purity,” America Figueroa and her son Samuel, Marlo Tucker, State Direcdtor of Concerned Women of California, and George Rosca, a Romanian man whose parents and 12 siblings escaped Communism in Romania, came to America and became U.S. Citizens, and is now a pastor. Each spoke passionately and factually about the indoctrination and damage to young children the hyper-sexualized “health” curriculum inflicts. Bosca talked about the highest ever suicide rates among kids and teens because while they are being sexualized and taught they can have sex whenever and with whomever they choose, they are not being taught about the consequences of such decisions. “Meaninglessness is leading to more suicides than ever,” Bosca said. “And the collusion is deep. The ACLU and Planed Parenthood have been working with the Department of Education for years,” he added. “It is up to a parent revolution to make changes.”

A public school teacher spoke warning that this curriculum is being sprung on teachers as well. “We’ve got to blow the lid off of this, because teachers are also scared.” She told parents to “back down these superintendents and school board presidents. We’ve been waiting for you.”

The founders of Informed Parents of California, Stephanie Yates and Aileen Blachowski had one message: “Hands off our kids!” And they said that if this curriculum isn’t removed, “you tell the schools that you’ll be removing your kids.”

Senators Brian Jones (R-El Cajon) and Mike Morrell (R-Rancho Cucamonga) addressed the thousands, and both men told the parents, “Never give up.” Morrrell said how great it was “to be out of the Capitol building, with people who are normal.”

The rally Master of Ceremonies was Sacramento radio talk show host Phil Cowan from AM1380TheAnswer. (Click to Source)

LGBT Is Out To Destroy Christianity, Forever

b572b095f5ca0b6f3a3989e5759a5337

HNewsWire– The militant LGBT activists, who fought for years for homosexuality to be recognized by society and now that it is prominent in our culture and they have not only equal but special legal protection in the United States, they simply aren’t satisfied at that.

The LGBT left seem to believe their mission will not be complete ,In their eyes, it is not enough that they have gained the legal rights they demanded for years. No, every person in this country must share their views on homosexuality, and those who don’t must be punished.

What can be the end except an utter war against the Holy Bible and the godly citizens that will not compromise with such sickness? America is on the precipice of complete sorrow and deceit.

Seek and destroy, this appears to be the case with a group of activists who have targeted a Christian ministry, managed by a man who overcame homosexuality, and are intent on completely destroying the work they are doing as well as all ministries that offer guidance to those seeking freedom from homosexuality.

Christian News Wire has the story:

“The level of hatred and bullying is not like anything we’ve seen,” says Stephen Black, who lived as a gay man for 8 years, over 35 years ago, and now Executive Director of First Stone Ministries is in the crosshairs of gay activists.

On April 6, First Stone Ministries (firststone.org) is hosting a public screening of the documentary film, Tranzformed: Finding Peace with Your God-Given Gender (tranzformed.org/). “This documentary is about 15 people who were unhappy as homosexuals and transgendered and wanted more in their relationship with Jesus Christ,” says Black. Gay activists have already sent death threats to a Michigan pastor and his family and are now setting their sights on Black.

Gay advocate and protestor, Sara Cunningham, vowed to close First Stone Ministries (she appealed for a $25,000 grant from Starbucks for her mission). Her goal is to mobilize and eliminate any mention of the possibility of change, even if people want it and even if it means a transformed life. “To agree to disagree on this issue and this type of ministry is no longer acceptable,” says Cunningham. But Black sees it differently, “In the last ten years, there has been an increasing attack on the gospel-centered message of freedom from homosexuality.” Activists are intent on shutting down any counseling that leads to new life in Christ and freedom from homosexuality.
Please consider supporting First Stone Ministries either financially or by keeping them in prayer as they stand strong against these vicious and violent attacks! If you’d like to encourage Stephen Black during these trying times, you can reach out to him here. Let’s let him know we stand with him and his ministry!

The Church that Jesus Christ died for and was entrusted to the Apostle Paul did not reemerge until the time of John Wycliffe and the Reformation. We call this time period The Enlightenment. In 2014, the LGBT Mafia is, for different reason and for a different outcome, attempting the same type of hostile takeover.

REWRITING THE SCRIPTURES
If the militant LGBT is to be successful, they first must neutralize all those righteous scriptures about their lifestyle – Old and New Testaments – which condemn sodomy between men and lesbianism between women. Its kind of hard to sit in the pews and feel comfortable with the bible telling you your lifestyle is an abomination before a righteous God. So they are publishing bible translations a true perversions which remove the offending bible passages. Bibles like the Queen James Bible aim to meet their need. Its authors say this:

“THE QUEEN JAMES BIBLE RESOLVES ANY HOMOPHOBIC INTERPRETATIONS OF THE BIBLE, BUT THE BIBLE IS STILL FILLED WITH INEQUALITY AND EVEN CONTRADICTION THAT WE HAVE NOT ADDRESSED,” THE WEB SITE NOTES. “NO BIBLE IS PERFECT, INCLUDING THIS ONE. WE WANTED TO MAKE A BOOK FILLED WITH THE WORD OF GOD THAT NOBODY COULD USE TO INCORRECTLY CONDEMN GOD’S LGBT CHILDREN, AND WE SUCCEEDED.”

Authors like Matthew Vines, already a queer celebrity, has written “God and the Gay Christian” which seeks to completely rewrite the historic biblical position against homosexuality. Book publishers who fear the wrath of being labeled as “homophobic” by the militant LGBT Mafia, are publishing books like these which are lapped up by soft Christian church’s and rendered impotent by a decade of cotton candy preaching like of Joel Osteen and a host of other so-called ministers. Because of the spiritual deadness that exists, these tactics have been surprisingly effective. Just as Obama labels all those who oppose him and his Marxist politics as “racists”, the LGBT label all those who oppose their queer lifestyle as speaking “hate speech”, which coincidentally, is now a crime. The LGBT Mafia is ruthless when they attack, just ask Phil Robertson or the Benham Brothers. Freedom of speech only applies if you talk about the LGBT-approved narrative.

INFILTRATE THE CHURCHES
A website called GayChurch.org has been compiling facts and figures of the number of churches and denominations that now offer a LGBT-friendly service, and we found this numbers to be quite revealing.The following taken from their militant homosexual groups website

Another trend that has continued is the number of independent Catholic churches now surpasses the number of Roman Catholic parishes that are brave enough to publically pronounce their affirming stance. The latter is hardly surprising though, given the Vatican’s ongoing negative policy toward the gay and lesbian community. Hopefully we will begin to see this stance soften under Pope Frances.The five denominations of United Church of Christ, Episcopal, Lutheran ELCA, Presbyterian, and United Methodist account for 4,623 of the gay-friendly churches listed, which is close to 70% of the directory. The only change from 2012 being that the United Church of Christ has moved slightly ahead of the Episcopal churches to be the most prolific gay affirming denomination. I believe the gay marriage initiatives throughout this country and the world is a key indicator that major progress has taken place. Religious beliefs, unfortunately, are one of the major reasons why prejudice has been allowed to continue against the gay and lesbian community for so long. Indeed, it was religious dogma that gave ‘validity’ to allowing prejudice to exist in the first place. In the same manner, I believe that opening church doors, hearts, and minds will in turn, be the vehicle that helps break down these same walls. I am constantly reminded in my heart that this movement is as much to heal the Body of Christ herself (i.e. the church as a whole) – as it is for us in the gay and lesbian community.

Is it possible to be a gay Christian? If the phrase “gay Christian” refers to a person who struggles against homosexual desires and temptations – yes, a “gay Christian” is possible. However, the description “gay Christian” is not accurate for such a person, since he/she does not desire to be gay, and is struggling against the temptations. Such a person is not a “gay Christian,” but rather is simply a struggling Christian, just as there are Christians who struggle with fornication, lying, and stealing. If the phrase “gay Christian” refers to a person who actively, perpetually, and unrepentantly lives a homosexual lifestyle – no, it is not possible for such a person to truly be a Christian.

USING HOMOSEXUAL MARRIAGE
Obama’s legacy, whether it will be finished in this term or his third one, will be centered around 3 main things that he managed to pull off. Socialized Medicine, granting Illegal Aliens illegal citizenship, and homosexual Marriage. Obama works so hard on promoting gay marriage, you would think he was getting a commission on the marriage licenses. The LGBT Mafia is very smart, they know that they need to ram this down our throats and sell it in order pass the rest of their agenda. And on this point, they have been astonishingly successful.

The LGBT’s campaign to radically alter your perception of the sin nature of homosexuality has for years been working through music videos, pornography, and in movies and television to make you feel bad if you will not condone their sinful lifestyle. Here is bible twister and ultra-Far Left Liberal Martin Sheen going through his paces in a pathetic attempt to make the bible says things that it does not say.

Nearly every major Fortune 500 company – including Walt Disney – is on-board with promoting a sodomite lifestyle. At the Magic Kingdom, it is paraded in front of children, and if you object you’re a homophobe. A massive, active indoctrination program aimed at children is underway in the Public Schools .

In The End
The bible says that in Revelation 3, the last church before the Rapture – Laodicea – will be cold, dead, lifeless and powerless. The only thing they have an interest in is money and material wealth. In 2 Thessalonians, it talks about a great “falling away” which also will happen. In fact, both these things are happening right now, and because of that, this “hostile takeover” attempt by the LGBT Mafia will be successful. Bible believers will be marginalized, neutralized and either hauled off to a prison cell or driven out of town on a rail. We live in a great and dark age, and are watching the slow but steady fall of the Christian Church. But there is a ray of Hope is all this, and that’s the Rapture promised in Titus 2:13 and 1 Corinthians 15. And after we go, the rabid, ungodly hordes of the LGBT and others who preyed upon the Church will be left alone to have the empty shell that will remain. It will be a “form of Godliness”, but without any of the power of it. It will culminate in the apostate “whore of Babylon” church system, led by the Vatican, which the bible talks about in Revelation 17 & 18.

To the LGBT Mafia, we simply say this: “…but this is your hour, and the power of darkness”. Luke 22:53

“It is better to be divided by truth than to be united in error. It is better to speak the truth that hurts and then heals, than falsehood that comforts and then kills. Let me tell you something, friend, it is not love and it is not friendship if we fail to declare the whole counsel of God. It is better to be hated for telling the truth, than to be loved for telling a lie. It is impossible to find anyone in the Bible who was a power for God who did not have enemies and was not hated. It’s better to stand alone with the truth, then to be wrong with a multitude. It is better to ultimately succeed with the truth than to temporarily succeed with a lie. There is only one Gospel and Paul said, ‘If any man preaches any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed.” (Click to Source)

Canadian tribunal fines Bill Whatcott $55,000 for expressing Christian views on “transgenderism”

Unbelievable 104-page ruling – “mis-gendering” is now a “hate crime”

Watch out: This is what is coming to America!

April 3, 2019

Last week the British Columbia Human Rights Tribunal fined Christian activist Bill Whatcott $55,000 for the crime of “mis-gendering.” They ordered him to “refrain from committing the same or a similar contravention.”

ALT TEXTInside the BC Human Rights Tribunal offices.

 

Whatcott’s “offence” is still considered perfectly legal in the United States. But for how long? (We are already seeing private censorship regarding transgenderism on Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, and Vimeo!) Passage of the pending federal “Equality Act” (H.R. 5) will insert “gender identity protections” throughout federal law.

ALT TEXTBill Whatcott, with a supporter, passing out flyers outside of the B.C. Human Rights Tribunal offices, just before his hearing was to begin.

 

Bill Whatcott was convicted of “mis-gendering” – telling people that a male wearing women’s clothes is actually a male, not a female. You read this correctly. This is how insane things have become in Canada. But the Tribunal declared that Whatcott’s (true) statements caused injury to the cross-dressing man’s “dignity, feelings, and self-respect,” and therefore Whatcott must be punished. The Tribunal noted that truth is no defense.

In Canada this irrational “gender” ideology now overrules everything.In the 104-page ruling (see below) the Tribunal judge freely admitted that this decision limits Whatcott’s religious freedom and freedom of expression:

There is no dispute that a decision against Mr. Whatcott would limit his Charter right to freedom of religion… While Mr. Whatcott would remain free to hold his beliefs about transgender people, he would be limited in the manner in which he could spread those views to the general public… There is similarly no dispute that a decision against Mr. Whatcott would limit his freedom to publicly express his views about transgender people generally. (Sections 75-77)

The Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms states that “freedom of expression” is necessary for society’s “search for truth.” But there is no longer a need for society to search for truth. The Tribunal has declared what truth is.

It goes even further. Mandated speech in the “transgender” realm is now the law. A “transgender woman” must not be called a man. You must use the pronoun or name the person wants. If you don’t, you are guilty of “hate speech.”

Whatcott is allowed think his thoughts on Christian morality and privately speak them to another person. But his thoughts on transgenderism may not be expressed in the public arena.

And that’s just the tip of the iceberg of the lunacy contained in this irrational ruling. Reading it is like digesting a mix of George Orwell and Alice in Wonderland. It’s tragic what Canada has become.

Bill Whatcott’s “crime”

During the British Columbia elections in the spring of 2017, Christian activist Bill Whatcott passed out hundreds of flyers notifying people that one of the local candidates for Parliament, Morgane Oger — who claimed to be a woman and dressed as a woman — was actually a man named Ronan Oger. (In fact, up until five years ago, Oger lived relatively normally as a father with his wife and two children.)

The infamous flyer – read it here.

 

Besides self-identifying as a “transgender woman,” Oger was no ordinary candidate. He was vice-president of B.C.’s far-left New Democratic Party (NDP). NDP promotes sexual-radical policies and Oger (as chair of the “Trans Alliance Society”) had personally pushed those issues into the British Columbia schools – which as a Christian Whatcott strongly opposes. Oger was also instrumental in the successful 2016 effort to add “gender identity” non-discrimination to B.C. law.

Whatcott’s flyer included Bible quotes affirming the dignity of God’s creation of us all as either man or woman. It went on to describe the medical dangers associated with the “transgender” and homosexual lifestyles.

Oger lost the election to the incumbent, a former Vancouver mayor, by 451 votes. Oger and his attorney admitted that no one can know whether the flyers hurt or helped his vote tally, as his supporters made a big deal of the “discriminatory” flyer (so Oger may even have gained sympathy votes as a result).

Accusation and trial

Oger subsequently filed a human rights complaint with the British Columbia Human Rights Tribunal against Whatcott, alleging that the flyers had exposed Oger to “discrimination, hatred and contempt” under Section 7 of the BC Human Rights Code.

Whatcott’s 4½-day hearing before the Tribunal took place in downtown Vancouver starting on Dec. 11, 2018. It was a bizarre event. MassResistance’s Amy Contrada was there to cover it first-hand.

During the hearing, Whatcott refused to buckle and continued to refer to Oger as a male in his testimony, despite being admonished several times by the judges. Whatcott also wore a shirt with a message describing Oger as a man, plus a Bible quote. (Male and female he created them. – Genesis 5:2) He spoke to bloggers and allies during breaks throughout the proceeding. He called the Tribunal what it is, a “kangaroo court.” Ultimately the Tribunal levied additional fines on him for this “improper behavior.” (Ironically, one of the judges slipped up and referred to Oger as a man during the hearing, but he was not fined!)

The unbelievable ruling

One cannot exaggerate how irrational and nonsensical the British Columbia Human Rights Tribunal’s ruling against Whatcott is.

There is no need to analyze their phony legalese or give point-by-point counter arguments. The ruling is simply a cover for a radical, illogical, lunatic ideology that has taken hold with the “elites” controlling the Canadian “justice” system.

The ruling’s statements are all based on the overriding premise that those identifying by their “gender identity” comprise a protected class. Trans persons’ “feelings” are sacred and cannot be hurt. Their “rights” trump everything else, including the facts of human biology.

As noted above, others must address them with the names and pronouns they choose. No further debate on the issue is allowed. Anyone who publicly disagrees with the idea of “gender identity” may be found guilty of discrimination. Anything published that is critical of it can be declared “hate speech” by a court.

(It’s not just political speech criticizing transgenderism that’s now banned. This ruling will also mean that parents organizing to oppose “transgender” lessons in schools can no longer publish anything contrary to this ideology on websites, blogs, or flyers.)

The Tribunal judges were quite clear that they see their role as enforcing that ideology throughout society, whether or not people agree, and whether or not it contradicts citizens’ rights to freedom of religion and expression. The judges see themselves as change agents (not neutral arbiters).

Thus, even before the hearing began, all the participants were warned that they may not “mis-gender” anyone, or they would face punishment.

To add more insult, the 104-page ruling was written by Devyn Cousineau, one of the three members of the Tribunal. By any normal standard, Cousineau should have been banned from even participating. She had donated money to transgender organizations and was affiliated with the NDP. She was also clearly a pro-LGBT activist. Whatcott’s lawyer unsuccessfully tried to have her recused from the case.

It’s clear that Whatcott was determined to be guilty before the trial even started. Here are some results of that mindset that came out in the hearing, and were reiterated in the ruling:

  • Whatcott’s witnesses excluded. At the hearing Whatcott called four prominent clergymen to testify as witnesses on his behalf. All four were denied. In the ruling, the judge explained that, “Their views of, and response to, the Flyer are no more relevant to our analysis than the views of any individual on the street.” (So much for “sincerely held religious belief” as a defense.) [25]
  • Whatcott’s expert witness excluded. Whatcott called a distinguished Canadian psychiatrist to testify on transgenderism and mental illness. He was not permitted to testify. The judges deemed him to be “not qualified” because “there was no evidence that he had any particular expertise with respect to the origins of love and hate” despite many decades of clinical practice. [29-37]
  • Whatcott’s lawyer’s cross-examination of Oger labeled “not relevant”. The judge flatly states that “the bulk of Dr. Lugosi’s [Whatcott’s lawyer] cross examination was not relevant to any issue that this Tribunal had to decide … Many of the questions were intended to show that Ms. [sic] Oger was either overly sensitive or vindictive towards Mr. Whatcott.” Among other things, Lugosi had questioned Oger about any backlash he might have gotten from the flyer, which allegedly causedinjury to his “dignity, feelings, and self-respect.” Furthermore, Lugosi was not allowed to question Oger on his biological sex.
  • Bizarre civil rights comparison. The judge wrote: “In my view, the Flyer is the modern version of a ‘whites only’ sign. It is an attempt to block the doors of government with a message that the political realm is for ‘cisgender’ [i.e., normal] people only.” [141]
  • Complaint that Whatcott’s flyer denies reality. The judge writes that “the Flyer denies the reality of transgender people.” This is because the flyer says, “The truth is there are only two genders, male and female and they are God given and unchangeable … the truth is Ronan’s DNA will always be male, he will never have a uterus, and no amount of cosmetic surgery, fake hormones, or media propaganda is going to be able to change these facts.” In other words, the truth does not matter!  [155]

The Tribunal ordered the following:

  1. Bill Whatcott must cease passing out flyers and other communication that “mis-genders” Oger or anyone else.
  2. He must pay Oger $35,000 to compensate for injury to his “dignity, feelings, and self‐respect.”
  3. He must pay Oger $20,000 because of his “improper conduct” – purposefully mis-gendering Oger, wearing his T-shirt during the Tribunal hearing, and speaking to reporters during breaks.
  4. He must pay Oger interest on the amounts until they are paid off.

At this point, however, paying anything is nearly impossible. Bill has been fired from his regular job as a bus driver and is virtually unemployable anywhere in Canada because of his official “hate criminal” label and bullying of his employers by LGBT activists. He is supporting his wife and two children the best he can from savings and any odd jobs he can pick up. (Yet after leveling this enormous fine, the Tribunal had the gall to claim that they are following the intent of the Human Rights Code which is “remedial” – but admit they are punishing Whatcott.)

And more

Appeal. Bill Whatcott has an attorney ready to appeal this ruling, and is beginning the process this month. However, we are not confident that this will be worth the effort in the Canadian justice system.

More “justice” coming Bill’s way. As we’ve also reported, Bill Whatcott is facing another “hate crime” trial in Toronto later this year, as well as an absurd $104 million lawsuit from LGBT activists, for passing out Christian material critical of homosexuality at the 2016 Toronto Gay Pride parade. Like the B.C. situation, his “crime” would barely raise eyebrows in the US.

Warning to the United States (and other countries)

Canada is just further along this road than the U.S. We have already seen states and locales enforcing punitive non-discrimination laws and ordinances to silence opposition to “gender identity” (as well as homosexual) ideology and lifestyles. Religious belief and even the truth are no defense!

Mainstream pro-family groups notoriously avoid confronting the “gender identity” issue directly for fear of being called names, etc. They don’t want to say that it’s destructive, perverted behavior based on junk science. Instead, they take the non-confrontational route: they complain that “transgender” legislation causes “privacy” issues and “religious freedom” problems. That kind of cowardice only empowers the radicals more and leads to what Canada has become. (Click to Source)

How faith-filled Africans saved the United Methodist Church from accepting gay ‘marriage’

Jonathon Van Maren – Fri Mar 1, 2019 – 4:55 pm EST

March 1, 2019 (LifeSiteNews) – Despite a concerted campaign by LGBT activists and liberal clergy, earlier this week the leaders of the United Methodist Church rejected the so-called “One Church Plan,” which would have permitted individual churches to decide whether or not to permit same-sex “weddings” and LGBT clergy, at their General Conference in St. Louis, Missouri. Delegates from around the world voted down the proposal and voted instead on Tuesday afternoon for the “Traditional Plan”—which would maintain the current rules of the United Methodist Church—by a margin of 438 to 384.

The decision came as a shock to many, as the Council of Bishops had recommended that the General Conference pass the One Church Plan in response to a growing number of vocal gay clergy inside the Methodist fold as well as intense pressure from LGBT members who insisted that Christianity should be conformed to their beliefs rather than the other way around. One delegate, the Rev. Tom Berlin of Virginia, actually stated that to remain committed to the biblical view of sexuality would be to put “a virus into the American church that will make it very sick, and it will be sick quickly.”

Additionally, Berlin warned the Conference, if delegates did not vote to abandon the biblical standard for sexuality, many churches would leave the United Methodist Church, and many liberal clergy members would simply ignore the vote and perform same-sex “weddings” anyway. “There will be trials, it will be in the news,” he warned in what sounded like a thinly-veiled threat. After heated debate, however, the liberal faction of the General Conference lost.

It should not be exceptional that a church conference has rejected unbiblical sexual practices, but at a time when nearly all mainline liberal Protestant churches are abandoning the Bible for the rainbow flag, it actually does come as a surprise. Interestingly, one of the key reasons that the traditionalists won at the United Methodist Conference has been ignored by nearly all of the news outlets reporting on the vote: The African Methodists stood up in defence of biblical teaching and rejected the change in no uncertain terms.

On the Saturday before the vote, Dr. Jerry P. Kulah, Dean of Gbarnga School of Theology at the United Methodist University in Liberia gave an incredible speech at the Reform and Renewal Coalition Breakfast of the United Methodist Church General Conference. His remarks were a stunning rebuke to those who were trying to mangle Christianity and do away with biblical principles. Here are a few powerful excerpts from a long speech (and it really is worth reading the whole thing):

I thank God for His precious Word to us, and I thank him for you, my dear sisters and brothers in Christ…As I understand it, the plans before us seek to find a lasting solution to the long debate over our church’s sexual ethics, its teachings on marriage, and its ordination standards.

This debate and the numerous acts of defiance have brought the United Methodist Church to a crossroads (Jeremiah 6:16). One plan invites the people called United Methodists to take a road in opposition to the Bible and two thousand years of Christian teachings. Going down that road would divide the church. Those advocating for the One Church Plan would have us take that road.

Another road invites us to reaffirm Christian teachings rooted in Scripture and the church’s rich traditions. It says, “All persons are individuals of sacred worth, created in the image of God,” that “All persons need the ministry of the Church,” and that “We affirm that God’s grace is available to all.”

It grounds our sexual ethics in Scripture when it says, the UM Church does “not condone the practice of homosexuality and considers [it] incompatible with Christian teaching.” While “we commit ourselves to be in ministry for and with all persons,” we do not celebrate same-sex “marriages” or ordain for ministry people who self-avow as practicing homosexuals. These practices do not conform to the authentic teaching of the Holy Scriptures, our primary authority for faith and Christian living.

However, we extend grace to all people because we all know we are sinners in need of God’s redeeming. We know how critical and life-changing God’s grace has been in our own lives. We warmly welcome all people to our churches; we long to be in fellowship with them, to pray with them, to weep with them, and to experience the joy of transformation with them.

Friends, please hear me. We Africans are not afraid of our sisters and brothers who identify as lesbian, gay, bi-sexual, transgendered, questioning, or queer. We love them and we hope the best for them. But we know of no compelling arguments for forsaking our church’s understanding of Scripture and the teachings of the church universal.

And then please hear me when I say as graciously as I can: we Africans are not children in need of western enlightenment when it comes to the church’s sexual ethics. We do not need to hear a progressive U.S. bishop lecture us about our need to “grow up.” Let me assure you, we Africans, whether we have liked it or not, have had to engage in this debate for many years now. We stand with the global church, not a culturally liberal, church elite, in the U.S.

We stand with our Filipino friends! We stand with our sisters and brothers in Europe and Russia! And yes, we stand with our allies in America. We stand with farmers in Zambia, tech workers in Nairobi, Sunday School teachers in Nigeria, biblical scholars in Liberia, pastors in the Congo, United Methodist Women in Cote d’Ivoire, and thousands of other United Methodists all across Africa who have heard no compelling reasons for changing our sexual ethics, our teachings on marriage, and our ordination standards!

We are grounded in God’s word and the gracious and clear teachings of our church. On that we will not yield! We will not take a road that leads us from the truth! We will take the road that leads to the making of disciples of Jesus Christ for transformation of the world! I hope and pray, for your sake, that you will walk down that road with us. We would warmly welcome you as our traveling companions, but if you choose another road, we Africans cannot go with you.

Dr. Kulah went even further when he addressed the idea that African Methodists might vote with the liberal American delegates in order to retain much-needed financial assistance:

Some Africans have been told that if a gracious exit petition is passed our evangelical friends in the U.S. will go their own way and no longer support efforts in Africa. That is not true.

Many of us in Africa have developed deep and long lasting friendships with our brothers and sisters in the U.S. Those relationships will not be severed if a gracious exit petition passes.

Unfortunately, some United Methodists in the U.S. have the very faulty assumption that all Africans are concerned about is U.S. financial support. Well, I am sure, being sinners like all of you, some Africans are fixated on money.

But with all due respect, a fixation on money seems more of an American problem than an African one. We get by on far less than most Americans do; we know how to do it. I’m not so sure you do. So if anyone is so naïve or condescending as to think we would sell our birth right in Jesus Christ for American dollars, then they simply do not know us.

We are seriously joyful in following Jesus Christ and God’s holy word to us in the Bible. And in truth, we think many people in the U.S. and in parts of Europe could learn a great deal from us. The UM churches, pastors and lay people who partner with us acknowledge as much.

Please understand me when I say the vast majority of African United Methodists will never, ever trade Jesus and the truth of the Bible for money…We will persevere in the race before us. We will remain steadfast and faithful. And some day we will wear the victor’s crown of glory with our King Jesus! Come walk with us! In the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, Amen!

Dr. Jerry Kulah is another example of what Nigerian pro-life activist Obianuju Ekeocha has been writing about for some time, most recently in her seminal book Target Africa: Ideological Neo-Colonialism in the 21st Century. It is the West, she points out, that is attempting to consistently force new sexual ideologies and abortion into African nations, against the will of the African people who still largely reject these ideologies. The West is using foreign aid to force their new values on people who do not agree with them, and it is often African nations that end up voting against Western proposals on sexuality and abortion at the United Nations.

A century ago and beyond, the West was sending missionaries into the heart of Africa to bring the Word of God to those who lived there. In this century, the West may well need to be evangelized by the descendants of those who first heard the Gospel from those brave missionaries—but unlike the rising generation in the West, have actually remained faithful to it.  (Click to Source)
