In an email today, the ACLU says, “North Carolina should truly repeal its unjust HB2 law that permits discrimination against LGBT people — and we’re calling on the NCAA to refuse to allow championship games to take place in NC until that happens.”
What’s wrong with the above ACLU complaint? Let’s do a little reality check.
While the left’s popular euphemism for homosexuality is the acronym LGBTQ, homosexuality remains a same-sex attraction.
Here’s the fun part. Are you ready, ACLU?
Men who are afflicted with same-sex attraction have no interest in the invasion of women’s restrooms, dressing rooms, and gymnasium showers. Homosexual men prefer men. Is this too deep for you? I’ll pull back and elaborate somewhat.
Women with same-sex attraction are not interested in men. Like homosexual men, they have no interest in the invasion of men’s restrooms, dressing rooms, and gymnasium showers. Does this help?
The North Carolina HB2, like a similar bill before the Texas Legislature, was crafted to protect vulnerable women and children from sexual predators, guys who wish to walk into women’s restrooms, dressing rooms, and gymnasium showers with impunity. These heterosexual males are perverts and creeps who are generally unwelcome in the aforesaid facilities reserved for women and young children.
I know, I know. I’ve written some facts about life that challenge your baseless complaints, but you will eventually gain understanding (aka common sense) if you re-read the above several times, clicking your heels together while repeatedly saying, “I’m not in the women’s restroom. I’m not in the women’s restroom. I’m not in the women’s restroom.”
Regardless the contemporary labels, homosexuality is what is has been since the earliest days of mankind on earth: an abomination before God’s eyes.
Within the span of my lifetime, governments have been transformed from following sound doctrine and the Rule of Law to being reprobate governments that now license behaviors historically known to be harmful to society.
This week, the Secretary of Defense Ash Carter said via a published statement on a change in armed forces policy, “The Defense Department’s current regulations regarding transgender service members are outdated and are causing uncertainty that distracts commanders from our core missions…DoD will create a working group to study…with the presumption that transgender persons can serve openly without adverse impact on military effectiveness and readiness…Second, I am directing that decision authority in all administrative discharges for those diagnosed with gender dysphoria or who identify themselves as transgender be elevated to Under Secretary Carson, who will make determinations on all potential separations.”
Keywords and key phrases reveal Ash Carter’s intention to overturn prohibitions against homosexual behaviors among the ranks of U.S. military personnel.
Subsequent to the Clinton policy, career military personnel left military service; many left behind their retirement. Yes, NPR, CNN, and all the progressive news sources tout all the many wonderful benefits of removing the ban, but facts run contrary to the pro-homosexual stories. One such Army veteran living and working in Plano, TX said to me, “I just couldn’t take it anymore.” This veteran walked away from his retirement.
Is America without hope? Are we to be but a footnote to world history? No, we are never without hope. Homosexuality and communism share a common character flaw: atheism, just ordinary sin.
Our hope lies in the hands of the Living God who sent his Son Jesus Christ, also known by his Jewish name Yeshua HaMashiach, manifested on earth with one solitary purpose: to undo, to destroy, to abolish all the works of Satan. [1 John 3:8]
You who are alive and reading this can have hope. The Lord Jesus Christ is as near as your next breath. He bore all our sins upon himself and his blood was shed on a hateful cross to cover all our sins if we simply repent from our sinful ways and call on his Name.
“According to the American Psychiatric Association, until 1974 homosexuality was a mental illness. Freud had alluded to homosexuality numerous times in his writings, and had concluded that paranoia and homosexuality were inseparable. Other psychiatrists wrote copiously on the subject, and homosexuality was “treated” on a wide basis. There was little or no suggestion within the psychiatric community that homosexuality might be conceptualized as anything other than a mental illness that needed to be treated…” – Behaviorism and Mental Health
Homosexuality is the mental illness that went away? No, it is the mental illness that was ‘legitimized’ by political correctness.
One must not ignore statistics and facts. According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), “LGBTQ youth are also at increased risk for suicidal thoughts and behaviors, suicide attempts, and suicide. A nationally representative study of adolescents in grades 7–12 found that lesbian, gay, and bisexual youth were more than twice as likely to have attempted suicide as their heterosexual peers.”
Our response should be honest, forthright, clinically sound and deeply compassionate.
We who willingly accept the facts of mental illness and official suicide statistics must stand against the politically-correct winds emanating from the left, the Democrat Party and their leader, Barack Obama, to come to the aid of young Americans who have succumbed to the deception that homosexuality is ‘normal’.
Obama ties the hands of the FBI, preventing them from investigating suspicious Muslims like Omar Mateen.
One has to question the integrity of an administration and his Democrat lawmakers who advance gun-control that would not have prevented the Pulse nightclub massacre.
“Robbie Abell, owner of a Florida gun shop, says he alerted [the FBI] that a suspicious man had come in asking about body armor. Five weeks later, Omar Mateen – equipped with weapons he bought at a different shop after Abell’s employees refused to sell to him – killed 49 people and injured as many at Pulse nightclub in Orlando.” Read more: http://ow.ly/gFvf301mh3Q
Meanwhile, Texas Senator John Cornyn moves right along with a ‘compromise’, which I see as a ‘surrender’, to advance the Democrat agenda of gun control and eventual confiscation.
Contact Senators Cornyn and Cruz today. Tell them “NO COMPROMISE”. Instead of compromise, our two senators should demand Obama revise or eliminate his CVE guidelines that hogtie FBI investigations of suspicious Muslims like Omar Mateen.
Let’s have a time-out to review the history of institutions of higher learning, the university.
The earliest institutions of higher learning, Harvard, William and Mary, Yale, and Princeton, were devoted to preparing ministers of the Gospel. It was Founding Father Benjamin Franklin who came up with the innovative concept of higher education, one which simultaneously taught both the ornamental knowledge of the arts and the practical skills necessary for making a living. Thus was born the University of Pennsylvania in 1791.
Here in Rockwall, back in the years when my four children worked their respective ways through Rockwall High School, three of them participated in the band. It was hard work, long hours of practices, hot, sweaty marching practice punctuated with long bus trips to out of town games, contests, and parades. As Band Booster President throughout that time, I recall how the students boasted about the discomforts. Today? Mommies complain if their little urchins get too hot, too sweaty. Today, we see a generation of wimps, young people easily offended, young people being made to believe that homosexuality is the new normal, sissies, little boys who think they are actually little girls. Transgender? I have a different name for them, but it would be sure to ‘offend’ their sweet little sensitivities.
So, what can I do to soften the rhetoric that so offends you, sweet young people? It was to the Gunnery Sergeant I turned for advice.
After thousands of years of human history, progressives like Barack Obama strive to redefine human sexuality. By means of a recent letter to all independent school districts in the nation, this sitting president either ignorantly or with malice aforethought defends his ‘school bathroom rule’ by claiming his religious faith guides his response.
What religion does he follow? He has claimed to be Christian. His actions and preference for Islam suggest he is Muslim. However, neither Christianity nor Islam condones homosexuality, including transsexualism. His statements strongly suggest his true religion is probably atheism.
Clinical science and medical experts agree: the practice of promoting or supporting transsexualism for American youth is tantamount to child abuse.
Facts in evidence unmistakably prove the sex ratio of female to male births is 49:51. Not even one singular birth certificate records the birth of a boy born with female chromosomes or a female born with male chromosomes.
The highest authority is the Author of Life.
So God created human beings[a] in his own image. In the image of God he created them; male and female he created them. Genesis 1:27 NLT
He created them male and female, and he blessed them and called them “human.” Genesis 5:2
Regardless the labels whether queer, homosexual, sodomite, pedophiles, transgender, LGBT, LGBTQ, the movement seeks to lure young people into a life of unnatural sexuality. The movement has gained political traction in the Democrat party and among Hollywood elites. Federal judges have yielded to self-deception, as evidenced by the Supreme Court opinion that same-sex marriage is ‘constitutional’ in the case titled OBERGEFELL ET AL. v. HODGES, DIRECTOR, OHIO DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH, ET AL.
The majority opinion states, “Well into the 20th century, many States condemned same-sex intimacy as immoral, and homosexuality was treated as an illness.” But, with the stroke of a pen, five liberal supreme court justices ignore the facts: homosexuality is immoral and it is a mental illness.
Finally, the actual size of the LGBTQ-homosexual-whatever population is estimated between .2% and 1.8%. An important fact is God’s opinion. He says all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God. His handbook for life, the Bible, explicitly states such practitioners will not be allowed into Heaven.
It has been our practice and custom that the majority rules, not the minority. This sitting Democrat president and his hand-picked leftist Supreme Court justices have turned this principle on its head. We now live under the tyranny of the minority.
May God have mercy on America.

After forty years of studies on transgenderism and sex-reassignment surgery, Dr. McHugh finds the condition as “mental illness” equivalent to “collaborating with madness”.
1. Human sexuality is an objective biological binary trait: “XY” and “XX” are genetic markers of health – not genetic markers of a disorder.
2. No one is born with a gender. Everyone is born with a biological sex. Gender (an awareness and sense of oneself as male or female) is a sociological and psychological concept; not an objective biological one.
3. A person’s belief that he or she is something they are not is, at best, a sign of confused thinking.
4. Puberty is not a disease and puberty-blocking hormones can be dangerous.
5. According to the DSM-V, as many as 98% of gender confused boys and 88% of gender-confused girls eventually accept their biological sex after naturally passing through puberty.
6. Children who use puberty blockers to impersonate the opposite sex will require cross-sex hormones in late adolescence. Cross-sex hormones (testosterone and estrogen) are associated with dangerous health risks including but not limited to high blood pressure, blood clots, stroke, and cancer.
7. Rates of suicide are twenty times greater among adults who use cross-sex hormones and undergo sex reassignment surgery, even in Sweden which is among the most LGBTQ – affirming countries.
8. Conditioning children into believing that a lifetime of chemical and surgical impersonation of the opposite sex is normal and healthful is child abuse.
The Williams Institute, UCLA School of Law – The American Foundation for Suicide Prevention
The prevalence of suicide attempts among respondents to the National Transgender Discrimination Survey (NTDS), conducted by the National Gay and Lesbian Task Force and National Center for Transgender Equality, is 41 percent, which vastly exceeds the 4.6 percent of the overall U.S. population who report a lifetime suicide attempt, and is also higher than the 10-20 percent of lesbian, gay and bisexual adults who report ever attempting suicide. Much remains to be learned about underlying factors and which groups within the diverse population of transgender and gender non-conforming people are most at risk.
Huffington Post attempts to normalize homosexuality through a false narrative on the history of Islam.
The writer’s objective is all too obvious. HuffPo writer Maggie MacNeely ignorantly or willfully equivocates the status of eunuchs as ‘transgenders’. They were not. [Link to HuffPo story http://ow.ly/GdVZ300G5fI]
Are there Muslims who practice homosexuality? Most certainly. You may be surprised to learn that the Israeli city of Tel Aviv is the most homosexual city in the world. It is to Tel Aviv that Muslim homosexuals flee to avoid prosecution and persecution in their native countries. But, apart from Afganistan, even Islamists believe homosexual behavior is a sin. [Quran references 7:80-84, 26:165-166, 4:16]
“Bacha bāzī (Persian: بچه بازی, literally “boy play”; from بچه bacha, “child”, and بازی bāzī, “game”) is a slang term in Afghanistan for a wide variety of activities that involve child sexual abuse and pederasty. The perpetrator is commonly called Bacha Baz (meaning “pedophile” in Persian). It may include to some extent child pornography, sexual slavery, and child prostitution in which prepubescent and adolescent boys are sold to wealthy or powerful men for entertainment and sexual activities. Bacha bazi has existed throughout history, and is currently reported in various parts of Afghanistan.”
Our military forces are under orders to “look the other way” while Afghan officers rape little boys. Here’s an excellent accounting of this hideous situation from the NY Times: “U.S. Soldiers Told to Ignore Sexual Abuse of Boys by Afghan Allies”. [Link to story http://ow.ly/xcAs300G5oa]
Yes, homosexual behaviors have been with us over 4,000 years as I document in my story titled “Homosexuality and Tyranny: Bedfellows for over 4,000 years” [Link to story http://ow.ly/fHZW300G5t5]
It’s helpful to point out the fact murder has been ongoing even longer than homosexuality, dating back to when Cain slew his brother Abel.
Should we then deem murder ‘normal’? No, and we should not deem homosexuality ‘normal’ either. Both are harmful to our fellow citizens and both are anathema to God.
Apart from blasphemy against the Holy Spirit, there is no such thing as unpardonable sin, including the sin of homosexuality. God sent his son Jesus the Christ, the Messiah or Yeshua Ha-Mashiach to Jews, or Isa to Muslims, to pay the penalty for our sins. As it is written in Romans 10:13,
For “Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.””
