The Lancet goes Trans

July 13, 2016

The prestigious British medical journal The Lancet has dedicated more than a dozen articles in its June 17 issue to affirming trangenderism as “diversity and not pathology”. This is not the first time The Lancet has adopted a controversial cause and been proven wrong. In this instance, The Lancet accepted, without any supporting evidence, the claim that a transition from one sex to the other sex with or without surgical alteration is an appropriate treatment for gender dysphoria.

Gender dysphoria is the new name for Gender Identity Disorder. Dysphoria is a fancy word for unhappiness. The gender dysphoric are unhappy ecause they don’t feel comfortable as the sex they were born. They envy the other sex and want to be (or may believe contrary to the obvious evidence that they are) the other sex. They are willing to go to extremes to achieve what they covet – acceptance as the other sex. Read more…

The NeoMarxist Politically Correct

July 13, 2016

It is long past time for those of us who are committed to faith and freedom to call out the Neo-Marxist purveyors of Political Correctness for corrupting the political process. Political Correctness is not about being polite or considerate of other people’s feelings, it is a Neo-Marxist strategy to silence common sense opposition to their radical agenda. Many may be shocked that someone would label the pushers of Political Correctness as Neo-Marxists. Since the downfall of Joe McCarthy’s anticommunist crusade in the 1950s calling people Marxists has been socially taboo. Those cognizant of the dangers posed by the Politically Correct often refer to them as Liberals or Fascists or Leftists, but these labels are inaccurate. True Liberals support free speech even for those with different opinions. The goal of the purveyors of PC Neo-Marxism is to silence the speech of anyone who disagrees with them. Fascists and Neo-Marxists are totalitarian by nature and want their opposition shut down, but Fascist are racists, sexists, and side with oppressors. PC Neo-Marxists champion the cause of the oppressed. While traditional Marxists focused on economics, PC Neo-Marxists are concerned with race and sex. Read more…

Blame

June 26, 2016

In response to my latest posts someone commented that gays were to blame for AIDS. I would not say that, rather I would say that gay men were victim of well-meaning friends. Same-sex attraction (SSA) is a preventable and treatable psychological disorder. Had that information been widely available and accepted by the general public, the gay sexual revolution with its multiple concurrent partners and unsanitary sexual acts would have been recognized for what it was: a symptom of an underlying, untreated psychological disorder. However, rather than help those struggling with SSA, the mental health professionals –without any hard research to support their decision –gave in to the demand to remove homosexuality from their list of psychological disorders in 1973. The most logical weapon against the STD/HIV/AIDS epidemic – the prevention and treatment of SSA – was discarded and gay men died terrible deaths. Think about the timing, those young men who didn’t get help in the 1970s died in the 1980s.

When the epidemic was raging, the public health professionals accepted gay behavior as unchangeable and surrendered proven strategies for controlling an STD in favor of ineffective risk reduction. They literally killed the gay men with kindness.

Lest we condemn the failure of others without bearing our share of the guilt, let us remember that people of faith did little to support the few brave therapists who were working to find effective treatments. The Church didn’t pray for those struggling, didn’t offer hope, or help. There is plenty of blame to go around.

THE TRANSGENDER FAD

June 25, 2016

          Before there is a general surrender to the demand for transgender rights, including but not limited to bathroom rights, it is important to understand why some people claim to be transgendered.

While many people use sex and gender as though they were synonyms, sex refers to the totality of what it means to be male or female. Gender refers to how one feels about one’s sexual identity. There are two sexes, but because gender is creation of the mind there are an unlimited number of genders. Read more…

The History of the Syndemic of AIDS

June 25, 2016

HIV/AIDS is no longer a major concern for the public in the US. It doesn’t even make the list, but the epidemic rolls on. In 2014 the CDC estimated that 36,138 men were newly infected with HIV. Of these 30,635 (83%) were gay men or the men who had sex with men (MSM).[1] While new infections in other categories have been declining, the category MSM has been increasing.

Why? Because the Risk Reduction strategy adopted to fight the epidemic was guided by the political agenda of Gay AIDS Activists and not experts in public health. And AIDS activists are selling a failed strategy and using the crisis to sell their sexual agenda to the world.  Read more…

More than which Bathroom

May 13, 2016

Published on Mercatornet, May 12, 20161

The USA is in the midst of what has been called the Bathroom Wars; however, access to bathrooms and locker rooms of the opposite sex for the so-called transgendered is only a means to an end. The real objective can be discerned from ACLU’s press release supporting U.S. Department of Education’s demand that the Palatine High School in Illinois (and by extension all schools receiving federal funds) allow a boy, who wants to be accepted as a girl, unrestricted access to the girls’ locker room.[1] The transgendered and their supporters claim that people are merely assigned a sex at birth, their gender identity (how they feel) may or may not match their assigned sex. The goal is to force everyone to accept that gender identity should take precedence over the biological reality of sexual identity and men who claim to be women should be treated as though they were women.

A Talk on Gender and Education

May 11, 2016

In 1981 my daughter came home from secondary school with information about her first day in health class. The teacher did not allow the students to bring the materials home, but what she told me caused concern. I went to the school and asked to see the materials they were using. I was shocked. It was far worse than I had imagined. Basically, every form of sexual sin was promoted, the course even downplayed the harm of incest and child abuse. I asked to have my daughter removed from the class and was told that the health class was a requirement for graduation.

The most troubling part of the course was not the open promotion of the sexual revolution, but use of what was called values clarification. Morality and virtue were replaced by values. Students were told they should make decisions based on what they chose freely to value. The course equated what music you chose or flavor of ice cream you like with the decision to have sex. Choice was the key word. The pro-abortion movement calls itself pro-choice. Read more…
