Guerrilla Activism or the new Totalitarianism

Guerrilla activism is a form of culture jamming that empowers individuals, allowing marginalized voices to be heard, giving them a temporary platform to speak, and in turn empowers the collective with knowledge.

This is the opening line of a web site that obviously promotes Guerrilla Activism; a concept used by both left and right to get their message across.  However this process—no matter how democratic—can be one of totalitarianism when it is used to silence the opposition. Continue reading

Some Honest Questions for Professing ‘Gay Christians’

I have interacted with a number of men and women who identified as gay atheists, and their atheism and their homosexuality were interrelated, since they rejected God of the Bible because they understood that the Scriptures rejected homosexual practice. And so, given the choice of rejecting their own identity or rejecting a God whom they understood rejected them, they chose to reject him.

Today, however, more and more men and women who identify as LGBT are professing to be devoted Christians, believing that the Church has wrongly interpreted the Scriptures Continue reading

Facts About Youth: Psychiatric Illness

From Facts about Youth

Psychiatric Illness

Multiple studies have identified high rates of psychiatric illness, including depression, drug abuse and suicide attempts, among selfprofessed gays and lesbians.1 Some proponents of GLB rights have used these findings to conclude that mental illness is induced by other people’s unwillingness to accept same-sex attraction and behavior as normal. They point to homophobia, effectively defined as any opposition to or critique of gay sex, as the cause for the higher rates of psychiatric illness, especially among gay youth.2 Although homophobia must be considered as a potential cause for the increase in mental health problems, the medical literature suggests other conclusions.

The De-Christianization of America

By: Regis Nicoll| April 11, 2014 for breakpoint.org

Imagine travelling down the expressway, sunroof open, XM dialed in to the “’60’s on 6,” and lost in reverie until you catch a whiff of something—a bouquet with that certain rubbery tang. You glance down and notice the “Temp” indicator is red; you glance back up to catch the first puffs of steam wafting from the hood. You pull over, get out of the car, and raise the hood to an engine belching coolant in gray billows. As you wait for the tow truck, head in hands, the significance of those small puddles of antifreeze on the carport you’ve noticed, but ignored, for the last several days, becomes clear.

Last year at the March for Marriage on the National Mall, my friend Eric Teetsel, executive director of the Manhattan Declaration, opened his speech with the facetious question, “Is anyone else out there on the wrong side of history?” Continue reading

Poll Vaulting: Marriage Gets PR Boost

For former Mozilla CEO Brendan Eich, supporting marriage must feel like an awfully lonely position. But according to a new Rasmussen Poll, it’s anything but. In what should be an eye-opening survey that the media will go out of its way to ignore, the survey house announced a flat-out tie between Americans who back same-sex “marriage” and those who don’t. Holding almost completely steady from its 2013 numbers, Continue reading

Protect all Minorities not just the militant and vocal

In a 28 February 2014 Springfield News-Leader article titled Some on Springfield City Council likely to favor LGBT protection by Jess Rollins we find:

From time to time, Kelly Johnson, chair of the mayor’s commission on human rights, inquires into the status of a proposed Springfield ordinance that would ban discrimination based on sexual orientation or gender identity.It’s been more than 18 months since a vote was postponed; three since a task force released a report with varied recommendations of how council could move forward.

To which this curmudgeon posted the following commentary:

The citizens of Springfield need to be proactive in protecting everyone’s rights; not just a minority. But then again are not women considered a minority? Perhaps we should consider their right to use a public restroom without the fear of sharing that room with a MAN in a dress–what you progressives call a transgendered person. Lets face reality, a man in a dress that thinks he is a woman is not a woman. Some wise post modern philosopher (not me although I wish I had thought of it) recently wrote; “You can sew a cat’s tail on a dog, but its still a dog.” Please take a breath and face reality before its too late!

Dear reader, is it not about time we face reality and admit that a man who wants to be a woman is still a man.  Those who are  born with Ambiguous genitalia (also known as atypical genitalia) which is a birth defect or birth variation of the sex organs that makes it unclear whether an affected newborn is a girl or boy) deserve our deepest and most sincere concern as does anyone who is born with a birth defect; but let us stop referring to those men born with typical genitalia as women just because they think they are or should have been, a woman.  Of course the same applies to ladies who think they ought to have been a man.

Gender identity disorder (GID), also known as gender dysphoria, is a formal diagnosis used by psychologists and physicians to describe people who experience significant dysphoria (discontent) with the sex they were assigned at birth and/or the gender roles associated with that sex.

Until such a time as a general consensus is reached as to permanently resolve gender identity disorder–it is a disorder;

Gender identity disorder is classified as a medical disorder by the ICD-10 CM[6] and DSM-5 (called gender dysphoria)

we need to stop encouraging our children to be something they aren’t and never will be.
