Miss Spain is Transgender?

The new Miss Spain is a transgender. Leftists will love it, but it does a real disservice to women. As is happening in women ‘s sports, phony women are displacing real women. Women are no longer allowed to represent themselves. They have to make way for men invading their space.

Isn’t that what they call “patriarchy”? Isn’t this a huge step backwards for women?

As long as there are many in our culture who refuse to deal with the reality of male -female differences, we will have this kind of result.

How to Refuse the Unicorn Reality

The imaginary world of transgenderism is being pushed and shoved onto us all of the time. If you aren’t sure what to do, see this article on American Thinker. It’s a guide for how to push back. Sadly, I think many will simply give in because they feel they have no choice.

Silencing Christian Lawyers

A new tactic has been adopted by the Perpetually Offended. This one will cause all lawyers to respect sexual orientation and gender identity (SOGI). The approach is to force state bar associations to change their nondiscrimination rules to accept Leftist SOGI ideals.

See this article from the Stream.

This will make it difficult for Christian lawyers, who oppose the LGBT agenda, from being recognized by the state bar. It would also restrict their speech in social activities where other lawyers are present. Christian legal organizations, such as the Alliance Defending Freedom and Christian Legal Society would be banned.

It’s clearly a free speech issue as well as a freedom of religion issue.

Pray and act, brethren.

Pastors Have Been Silent for Far Too Long

Gagged_Sean-Gallup_Getty-Images_2015

On the subject of homosexuality and same sex marriage, too many pastors have avoided the subject and simply don’t want to bring it up. They know it can bring a lot of unpleasant side effects, including Internet bullying, death threats, and protesters. See the recent column by Michael Brown. In it, he mentions the great backlash he has received for creating a video about why you can’t be gay and be a Christian.

Many times, it is because they don’t want to anger anyone in their congregation. I have known Bible-believing pastors who would not provide a stance on same sex marriage because there were active members of the church who were leftist activists, and they didn’t want to lose them.

Some pastors feel that they simply want to focus only on evangelism and not bring anything else into the picture. They feel that talking about current events would only muddy the waters for their congregation. That is a moral failure of the pastor. If there were those in the congregation doing drugs or watching porn, they would mention that. If a pastor is truly concerned about the moral and spiritual health of their members, they would speak up on any issue that members are struggling with.

And finally, it seems like too many pastors are simply scared. They know they can be physically and financially harmed by the Perpetually Offended of the Left, who typically resort to bullying if anyone disagrees with them on LGBT issues. These pastors need to look at the long history the Church has in speaking the truth, even when we risk persecution. Failure to do so now will only make things more difficult down the road.

UCLA professor dies in ‘mummification’ ritual at Hollywood executive’s home | Fox News

This is wrong, wrong, wrong on so many levels. 

http://www.foxnews.com/us/2018/07/01/ucla-professor-dies-in-mummification-ritual-at-hollywood-executives-home.html

BDSM is not a valid technique in enhancing human sexual relationships. It degrades. Instead of promoting equality and respect, it focuses on pain and denigration to allow someone to get sexual satisfaction. The Hollywood exec involved should be summarily cast ouf of show business there. 

That same individual should be charged with manslaughter. Even if it was inadvertent, it was caused by his actions. Wrapped in plastic wrap with just a few holes for air? That was clearly dangerous. The whole reason for doing it was because it was dangerous. That was their “high”, to flirt with the possibility of the victim’s death. Now, the perpetrator is shocked, shocked, that the victim died.

The authorities are not willing to charge the perpetrator with any crimes. Here is the fear factor at work again. They don’t want to anger the LGBT community, even though someone was killed. Shame, shame.

And the victim was a transgender/homosexual who was “married”, but nevertheless involved in a sexual relationship outside of their marriage. That is what LGBT marriage is like. Although they may be married for legal reasons, it is very typical for those marriages to allow sexual relationships outside the marriage. That is very different from traditional marriage, where it is generally accepted that sex is only within the bonds of marriage.

So many things wrong here. It is really disturbing that this is treated as nothing more than an unfortunate incident and will be forgotten tomorrow.

Trump Drops LGBT Lobbying Fest

The Obama administration did everything they could to push the LGBT lifestyle into the U.S. military, regardless of whether it was good for milliltary readiness and effectiveness. Thankfully, Trump is no longer promoting that at the Pentagon or at our military bases.

When Do the Leftist Judges of SCOTUS Care About Freedom of Religion?

Recently, there have been three Supreme Court cases that focused on Freedom Of Religion:

  • Masterpiece Cakeshop v. Colorado Civil Rights Commission – Ruled in favor of a Christian baker who served a gay customer, but refused to enter into a legal contract to promote that customer’s gay wedding by decorating a wedding cake for them. It was ruled that the baker/defendant’s religious freedom was infringed upon when the Colorado Civil Rights Commission fined and penalized the baker. The 4 leftist judges ignored the defendant’s religious freedom.
  • Arlene’s Flowers v. State of Washington – When a florist refused to provide a floral arrangement for a gay wedding, the florist was also fined and penalized, similar to the Masterpiece decision. The Supreme Court vacated that lower court decision and instructed the lower court to render a new judgement based on the Masterpiece decision. This was also a Religious Freedom issue, but the 4 leftist judges again ignored the defendant’s Freedom of Religion.
  • NIFLA v. Becerra – In this case, the state of California tried to force pro-life clinics, which are typically run by Christian organization, to promote abortions in the literature of the clinics. The Supreme Court ruled that the Free Speech rights of those clinics could not be infringed upon by the state government. This was also a Freedom of Religion issue, but the 4 leftist judges again ignored the defendant’s Freedom of Religion.

The INTERESTING thing is a ruling that came after that. The Supreme Court ruled in favor of the Trump administration and their right to place restrictions on immigration. This would not normally be an item for me to write about. However, the 4 dissenting judges – the 4 leftists judges – dissented because of the “Freedom of Religion”. They said that Trump was actually against immigration and so was showing discrimination against Muslims.

It’s interesting that leftists only want to invoke the Freedom Of Religion when it suits them, not when Christians are facing real discrimination because of their long-held religious beliefs.

California Pro-Life Clinics Score Big Win at the Supreme Court

This week, the Supreme Court ruled that the state of California could not force pro-life clinics to print and publish pro-abortion speech dictated by the state. This is a big, big ruling in favor of the First Amendment.

Pro-aborts have long railed against pro-life laws passed in other states that required pro-abortion clinics to provide information about the abortion procedure. They figured that they could make pro-life clinics refer for abortions. That proved to be a false assumption. Abortion clinics can be told to provide information because individuals are being warned about a medical procedure. However, pro-life clinics cannot be told to promote abortion because they are not performing a medical procedure.

This was a win not only for Free Speech, but also for religious liberty, since most pro-life clinics are religious organizations.

Who’s the Bully Here?

There are two photos below. Which one is the real bully?

The first photo is the Aaron and Melissa Klein family who owned the bakery called Sweet Cakes by Melissa. Here are their offenses:

  • They refused to participate in something that was against their deeply held religious beliefs: a homosexual wedding. They were asked by Rachel Cryer to design a cake to celebrate such a wedding.
  • They politely explained why their religious convictions prevented them from creating that specific kind of cake.
  • They had previously sold a cake to Cryer for her mother’s wedding.
  • Some people who support the Kleins tell Cryer and her spouse that they are fat and ugly.

Here’s the photo of the Kleins and their kids.

Next, we have Rachel Cryer and her spouse, Martha Bowman. Here are their offenses:

  • They brought a lawsuit against the Kleins
  • They asked for $150,000 in emotional damages
  • Forced the bakery to shut down because of the $135,000 awarded to Cryer and Bowman. This includes not only their business assets, but their personal assets as well.
  • Their lawsuit claims the following occurred as a result of the Kleins’ refusal to create their cake:
    • “acute loss of confidence”
    • “doubt”
    • “excessive sleep”
    • “felt mentally raped, dirty and shameful”
    • “high blood pressure”
    • “impaired digestion”
    • “loss of appetite”
    • “migraine headaches”
    • “pale and sick at home after work”
    • “resumption of smoking habit”
    • “shock”
    • “stunned”
    • “surprise”
    • “uncertainty”
    • “weight gain”
    • “worry.”
  • Their allies have:
    • Sent death threats to the Kleins
    • Vandalized the Kleins’ vehicles
    • Broken into the Kleins’ house
  • A commissioner of the Oregon Bureau of Labor and Industry, who brought the charges, said the Kleins needed to be “rehabilitated”.

Here are the lesbian couple.

The Masterpiece Cake ruling by the Supreme Court was very narrow and did not touch this case. It’s very clear that leftists are trying to do anything they can to crush anyone who does not want to celebrate their weddings. It’s not a matter of respecting one another, or of respecting another person’s religious freedom. It’s just a matter of attacking those who disagree and trying to destroy them personally.

Schools have been trying to teach kids against bullying. Since bullying has been around for a long time, I wonder if it was actually introduced in recent years because the LGBT community wanted to stigmatize anyone who spoke against homosexuality. Nevertheless, it is time to shine the bully light directly where it should go: against the Perpetually Offended LGBT community.

There are plenty of good Christian people who simply disagree with the concept of homosexual marriage. They should be allowed to run their lives and their businesses as they wish without being forced to participate in or celebrate those wedding.

Something We SHOULD Fix

After much internal deliberation, I have to say something about the subject of immigrant children who are detained and separated from their families.

I decided long ago that I needed to be focused on my Christian convictions first and foremost. I had to follow the direction that aligns with God’s Word, regardless of whether it puts me at odds with family, friends, or even political allies. But I have found myself often influenced in ways I dislike.

For instance, the child immigrant situation appears to be magnified by one political party simply as a way of attacking another political party. Why is this a crisis now? Why this crisis? What about other crises that involve many more human beings (like the 600,000 unborn children separated from their mothers and killed each year)? Most of the protests appear to be political in nature only because one side wants to stir up trouble for the other.

That may be true, but we Christians should be concerned about the preservation of the family. One of the 3 pillars I emphasize in this blog is the Sanctity of Design. It focuses on the fact that we were designed as male and female, intended to be used to procreate within the bonds of marriage, as the building blocks for the Church and community. Traditional family is definitely at the heart of the Sanctity of Design.

Note that this is a pro-family issue, not a pro-life issue. Calling it a “pro-life” issue is a canard, trying to blur the distinctions concerning the sanctity of life. Many leftists want the term “pro-life” to encompass health care, education, etc. – anything related to children. It’s best not to go down that road. This is not about the sanctity of life. No one is talking about killing children who are separated from their parents. That was another distraction for me.

Many Christian leaders have spoken out about the issue, some from the very beginning. The government should not be in the business of separating children from their parents. However, I need to give some caveats:

  • Of the 12,000 immigrant children who are in Federal custody, 10,000 of them came across the border. That means there are only about 2000 immigrant children that we are talking about.
  • Of the 2000 children who came across the border with adults, it is not clear that all of those are their parents. Some children could have been accompanied by guides who illegally brought them over. Others might be sex traffickers. The government should take the time to make sure those children are actually with their parents.

Nevertheless, I do want to add my voice, however late it may be, to the general principle that we don’t want to separate children from their parents. The good thing is that both sides agree on that. Now, we need to work together to fix it.
