The Brave and the Free

The LGBT community is a small one. Studies indicate it is about 1 – 2% of the population There are problems with that estimate, but let’s just accept it for now.

But not all of those who are LGBT are willing to step into the open. I don’t have any numbers for this estimate, but it’s probably much smaller than 2%.

And of that number, there aren’t that many who have left the LGBT lifestyle, turned to Christ, and are open about it. Those people are willing to go against political correctness, the prevailing culture, and possible hardship from the LGBT bullies who love to doxx people and get them fired. And there were 200 such ex-LGBT people who showed up in Washington D.C. on May 25 for a march, publicly showing that there is true life for those caught up in the LGBT lifestyle. It was deemed the Freedom March.

Read up on the March here: https://stream.org/ex-lgbt-people-declare-freedom-jesus-dc-freedom-march/

Those in the LGBT community have a lot of physical and mental health issues. I say this not to ridicule them but to draw sympathy for them. The people in the Freedom March have gone through considerable peril to be a part of that event, and they deserve some attention. It wasn’t embracing their non-heterosexuality that improved their lives. It was accepting their lives as God intended.

I really hope that those who do not find fulfillment in their LGBT lifestyle will consider how many have found freedom in Christ. And hats off to those who have been willing to be a part of the Freedom March.

Biological Male Wins NCAA Women’s Track Championship

This is another reason to oppose the so-called Equality Act. It doesn’t treat women fairly.

We already have laws on the books to pay women equally, to promote them equally, and to allow them into the same professions as men. It’s part of nondiscrimination clauses in practically every large business.

But that doesn’t mean we don’t recognize differences between men and women when it is helpful to women, and one of those situations is in sports.

It is a biological fact that, on average, women are slightly smaller and weaker than men. Of course, there are exceptions, but we’re talking about averages here. And in most sports, the average man has an edge on the average woman.

Society recognized this long ago and allowed men to compete against other men, while women competed against other women. If a man competed against a woman in a very physical sport, it was not considered fair or polite. It was not considered gentlemanly for a man to compete with a woman when strength, height, or weight was a significant factor.

However, after decades of being told that men and women are absolutely equal and interchangeable in all things, we are told to close our eyes and let biological men compete against women, even if those men have taken on some feminine characteristics. We are allowing that in track, weight lifting, and other sports, and as biological men beat out women, we are willing to ignore that it wasn’t a fair competition in the first place.

This article from the Daily Caller shows one instance of a weight lifting organization that finally got the courage to prevent this in their competitions.

The so-called “Equality Act” put forward in the House of Representatives is supposed to be about helping LGBT individuals become “equal” to everyone else. Unfortunately, the misnamed bill is not about equality. One of the major problems is that it puts women athletes at a disadvantage in that it allows men who say they are in the process of transitioning to women to compete with women.

We already know the result of most, if not all, of those matches.

I am old enough to remember when female East German athletes tended to be heavily favored in most of their Olympics competitions. Most of the time, they won. It was suspected, and later proven, that they were taking testosterone to help them bulk up, gain muscle, and dominate women’s sports. If the Olympic Committee discovered that one of those East German women had been taking testosterone, those athletes would be severely penalized and possibly banned from competition.

Now, however, the new LGBT orthodoxy would reward athletes who are already men in their competition against women.

That’s not equality. That’s just preferential treatment.

It’s time to put a stop to the Equality Act and let women compete fairly.

This Catholic School won’t be bullied by the city anymore.

More Churches Vandalized

Five windows were broken at Wren Church of God in Easley, South Carolina. No messages were left.

Also, Matthew Catholic Church in El Paso, Texas was also vandalized.

Church vandalism is occurring throughout the U.S., and we often don’t notice it because it is scattered. By seeing all of these attacks in one site, we can get a better picture of assaults on freedom of religion in our country. We will continue to identify church vandalism as it occurs.

Pro-Aborts Force Their Beliefs on Catholics By Vandalizing Church

 

PROCHOICEVANDALGRAFITTI_4407113Many pro-aborts are no doubt upset about pro-life legislation being passed in a number of states. That may have been what prompted someone in the Philadephia area to spray-paint something on the front of Notre Dame de Lourdes Church. It said,

“You do not have the right to decide how others lives”

It is not clear why the culprit decided to blame this church, especially since this church is in Pennsylvania, where no pro-life legislation has been passed. I assume that they are simply lashing out at anyone who is a likely ally of pro-life efforts, such as Catholics.

But look at what they were saying. They were saying that that no one has a right to decide how others live. That raises a number of questions:

  • Do pro-aborts have the right to decide whether it is okay to vandalize a church?
  • Do pro-aborts have the right to force their messages on the front of a church?
  • Do pro-aborts get to force their views on the front doors of a church?

As normally happens with those who want to fight against freedom of speech and freedom of religion, they also are myopic about their own efforts that stifle speech and religion.

It’s time for everyone to respect our freedoms while allowing our elected legislatures to debate ideas and pass laws.

Charter School Pushes Drag Queen Acceptance on Middle Schoolers

Central Park School for Children, a charter school in Durham, NC, decided to push their middle school students into acceptance of the drag queen lifestyle. This was initiated because school officials felt there was bullying of LGBT students at the school.

See the story here.

It is sad that there was bullying of any child. Unfortunately, that happens a lot in school. I was bullied in my high school because I was a professed Christian, yet no one ever thought about bringing in a pastor to preach tolerance to my fellow students. Apparently, in today’s world, only the LGBT community is deserving of such deference.

The article indicates that a large majority of LGBT individuals contemplate suicide. There is an implication that it is due to bullying. However, members of the LGBT community have a tendency to have suicidal thoughts regardless of whether they are bullied or not. This is especially true of transgenders. Those who suffer from these conditions deserve our sympathy, but we do not need to promote their lifestyle.

I can only imagine that the logical outcome of this will be that drag queen teachers will one day be accepted as well. After all, don’t we want them to have a positive self image?

Those of us who want our right to see positive role models promoted to our children face an uphill battle. The issue should be about training our children, not hosting events to help people with self image problems.

Three Churches Attacked in Burkina Faso During the Past 2 Months

On Sunday, May 12, a Catholic church in Burkina Faso was attacked by 20-30 gunmen. Six people, including the priest, were killed. Afterward, the attackers burned down the church.

After years of quiet, it appears that terrorists, possibly Al-Qaeda or ISIS, have been staging attacks, including the 3 church attacks.

This is important news about religious persecution, but it will probably be hidden behind some incessant news about the latest meaningless politics in Washington.

Supreme Court to Rule on EEOC Bullying Small Christian Business

Thomas Rost has run his Harris Funeral Homes for 50 years. Some of his employees are assigned to help grieving families plan and carry out their funerals. To that end, those employees are expected to wear a skirt suit if they are female or a regular suit if they are male.

One of his male employees came to Rost and declared that he was transitioning to a female and that he would now be wearing female clothes until he physically transitions. Rost, knowing that such a situation would only make matters worse with some grieving families. For that reason, Rost forbid that employee from dressing as a woman. As a result, the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) filed two lawsuits against.

Rost, who is a Christian, has a deeply held belief that one cannot change one’s sex. In addition, the EEOC is attempting to change the language of non-discrimination laws to include “gender” in place of “sex”. This is not what the law says and is not what Congress voted on. It is merely EEOC’s attempt to force a Christian to abide to “politically correct” ideas about changing one’s sex/gender. A businessman cannot run his business according to what he “thinks” Congress meant the law to say.

The Supreme Court has decided to take up this case. It may cause SCOTUS to determine what Christian businesses can do determining their own deeply held beliefs.
