'To Combat HIV, LGBT Americans Need To Wrestle With Some Hard Truths'

Transgender Flag - Source: Wikipedia  By Michael Wilson - Posted at The Culture Alternative: I seemed to have lost track that HIV is still an issue. Here is an update of the current risk, particularly to the transgender community. Chad Felix Greene is a senior contributor to The Federalist. He is the author of the “Reasonably Gay: Essays and Arguments” series and is a social writer focusing on truth in media, conservative ideas and goals, and true equality under the law. You can follow him on Twitter @chadfelixg. I earnestly hope and pray that every child and adult struggling with gender identity issues will find wholeness, peace, and happiness from our Master Jesus. I earnestly hope and pray that we will live to see the day when every person who feels trapped inside the wrong body will find internal resolution without hormones and radical surgery. At the same time, I wholeheartedly oppose the transgender revolution and predict that, ultimately, it will fail. Jesus is the answer and t

It is My Business

 By Dr. Peter Jones - Posted at TruthXchange: I recently heard a sermon that gave me deep concern. It was on 1 Peter 4:12–13, a text that predicts serious suffering for Christian believers. Peter, who was crucified upside down by the “civil” authorities of Rome, wrote: “Dear friends, do not be surprised at the fiery ordeal that has come on you to test you, as though something strange were happening to you. But rejoice inasmuch as you participate in the sufferings of Christ, so that you may be overjoyed when his glory is revealed.” Peter was writing to Christians under persecution for not worshiping the Roman emperor, who believed himself to be god. As I listened to the sermon preached in 2021, I couldn’t help wondering what Christians will suffer and are already suffering in our time and in cultures around the world. A few days before hearing that sermon, I received an email from Christian Concern, a UK legal defense ministry similar to the Alliance Defending Freedom. The article desc

LGBT Students Ask Court to Overturn the Government's 'Religious Exemption' for Christian Schools

 By Michael Foust - Posted at Christian Headlines: A coalition of 33 current and former LGBT students from Christian and religious colleges filed a federal lawsuit on Monday that could dramatically impact how faith-based schools operate by declaring a government religious exemption received by such schools unconstitutional. Under current federal rules , religious institutions are exempt from Title IX, a 1972 law that prohibits discrimination based on sex in education programs and activities. Although the Trump administration argued that Title IX does not apply to sexual orientation and gender identity, the Biden administration has claimed it does. The lawsuit , filed by the Religious Exemption Accountability Project, asks the federal court to declare the Title IX religious exemption clause unconstitutional. It also asks the court to require the federal government to “enforce the protections of Title IX at all taxpayer-funded educational institutions, including at those institutions t

Supreme Court rules gay, trans employees protected by Civil Rights Act; Gorsuch, Roberts join liberals for 6-3 decision

By Adam Ford - Posted at DISRN : The Supreme Court delivered a huge win for the LGBT movement Monday, ruling that Title VII of the landmark Civil Rights Act — which bars people from being fired on the basis of sex — should be read to include sexual orientation and gender identity as well. Conservative Justice Neil Gorsuch wrote the opinion; he and Justice John Roberts joined the four liberal members of the court to deliver the 6-3 decision . "An employer who fires an individual for being homosexual or transgender fires that person for traits or actions it would not have questioned in members of a different sex. Sex plays a necessary and undisguisable role in the decision, exactly what Title VII forbids," Gorsuch wrote.

Mandated LGBT Indoctrination at School Begins in NJ

The Newman Report - Freedom Project Media By Alex Newman - Posted at Freedom Project Media: The state of New Jersey has joined California and Illinois in mandating homosexual and gender-confusion indoctrination at all government schools embedded into virtually every subject, sparking a growing outcry among parents and faith leaders. Now, some leaders are calling for an exodus from public schools. In at least a dozen districts across the state, government schools began testing a “pilot” curriculum this month. It infuses LGBT propaganda into literally everything. In addition to normalizing homosexuality and transgenderism, many of the programs are aimed at peddling the idea of homosexual heroes to children under the guise of LGBT “history.” According to news reports, schools in Hackensack, Morristown, Newark, Asbury Park and beyond are supposed to serve as “proving grounds” for “new lessons in history, economics and even grammar designed to improve awareness of lesbian, gay, bisex

Surprise 'Coming Out' Middle School Assembly Angers Parents

Van Buren Middle School By Linda Harvey - Posted at Mission: America: Most parents don’t like to be the last to know what’s being presented to their children, and Dayton, Ohio-area families were appalled to learn about a school-wide assembly held at a middle school. No advance parental notice was given for this event held in conjunction with homosexual/transgender National Coming Out Day. As I have mentioned in previous articles , schools are regularly observing special days and weeks as part of a coordinated “LGBT” agenda directed to America’s children. It all happened at Van Buren Middle School in Kettering, a Dayton suburb. An 11-year-old boy reported to his mom that a special speaker addressed the students. Actor/author Maulik Pancholy related his experience believing he was “gay” back in 6th grade and now encourages students to embrace their own homosexual feelings. He’s written a book called The Best At It. Yes, that’s right. Sixth graders are now being encouraged to ann

How Illinois Schools Teach Preschoolers To Celebrate Transgenderism

Source: By Joy Pullmann - Posted at The Federalist: To get a sense of what all Illinois public schools must begin teaching children starting next year, one can look at LGBT curriculum developed this summer in a wealthy Chicago suburb. Starting July 1, 2020, all Illinois public schools are legally required to teach children LGBT history and only buy textbooks that include the topic. NPR affiliate Illinois Public Radio labeled Christian and conservative opposition to this law while it was being considered as stemming from “hate groups.” The explicit goal of such laws, which are also in place in California, Colorado, New Jersey, and Oregon, is to make children agree with the left’s views of sexuality, which contradict the historic views of all major world religions. This is not only the open, stated goal of those pushing such laws but also explicit in the curriculum. Continue reading...

Lutheran Church [LCMS] affirms traditional stance on LGBT issues, compassion for LGBT people

The 67th Regular Convention of The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod, taking place in Tampa, Florida on July 20-25, 2019. | Facebook/National LCMS Convention By Michael Gryboski - Posted at The Christian Post: The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod overwhelmingly passed a resolution reaffirming its traditional, biblical stance on gender identity and sexual orientation, while also calling for churches to “minister compassionately” to people who identify as LGBT. At the LCMS’ 67th Regular Convention in Tampa, Florida, on Tuesday, Resolution 11-03A, titled “To Encourage Synod to Develop Resources to Aid Congregations and Schools regarding Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity Issues,” passed with 96.8% of the vote. Among its points , the resolution reaffirmed “the biblical truth that God created humanity as male and female” and commended people who “continue to live chaste and decent lives in repentant faith” in spite of “same-sex attraction and gender identity confusion.” It also cond

As Pelosi Promises Radical LGBTQ ‘Equality Act’ if Democrats Take House, Republicans Are Mostly Silent on ‘Gay’ Agenda

By Peter LaBarbera - Posted at AFTAH : “If Christians and conservatives are afraid to even discuss the homosexual agenda, how can we ever hope to defeat it?” Nancy Pelosi Promises Radical LGBTQ “Equality Act” if Democrats Win House, while GOP Candidates Self-Censor on Homosexual Agenda The most dangerous legislation ever to come out of the revolutionary “gay” activist movement – the federal “Equality Act,” which proposes adding “sexual orientation” and “gender identity” as protected classes in the Civil Rights code – hangs in the balance as Americans go to the polls today. Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) promised that if the Democrat Party wins back the House and she becomes Speaker Pelosi, a top priority will be passing the Equality Act , which now has 198 co-sponsors in the House, all but two of them Democrats. Americans For Truth About Homosexuality ( ) president Peter LaBarbera has renamed the Equality Act the “Criminalizing Christianity Act” and called it a “

'The Greatest Threat to Free Speech Comes From LGBTQ Activists Who Rule Facebook, Google, Amazon'

By Tyler O'Neil - Posted at PJ Media : On Saturday, Robert A. J. Gagnon, a prominent Christian scholar on the topic of Bible sexuality, spoke out about being blocked on Facebook for a second time. Both times, he posted about how LGBT activism pushes sexual perversion, as defined by the Bible. Both times, he was blocked on Facebook for "hate speech." He spoke with PJ Media about the overarching issue: redefining "hate" to silence conservative views on sexuality. "The greatest threat to our free speech and free exercise of religion comes from zealous advocates of the 'LGBTQ' agenda who appear to rule FB, Google, and Amazon," Gagnon told PJ Media Saturday. Gagnon, who holds a Ph.D. in Pauline theology and sexuality from Princeton Theological Seminary, has published " The Bible and Homosexual Practice: Texts and Hermeneutics ." As his church, the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.), has moved toward the LGBT side, Gagnon split with Pittsbur

Al Mohler Expresses Concern Over Gay Christian Revoice Conference

By Michael Gryboski - Posted at the  Christian Post: Albert Mohler Jr., president of The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Louisville, Kentucky, has expressed concern about an upcoming conference centered on LGBT Christians. Called the Revoice Conference, the multiday event is scheduled for July 26–28 at Memorial Presbyterian Church in St. Louis, Missouri, with hundreds expected to attend. In an episode of "The Briefing" podcast released Friday, Mohler said his "biggest concern" about the conference is the event's apparent acceptance of the idea that sexual identity "becomes a defining issue that isn't changed by the Gospel and isn't transformed by sanctification." "I did not say that coming to saving faith in the Lord Jesus Christ results in any kind of immediate transformation of sexual desire," explained Mohler. Continue reading... HT: Sermon Audio

Revoice in their own voice

Screenshot: REVOICE.US By Colin Smothers - Posted at ANCHOR⚓D: Much controversy has swirled around the upcoming Revoice conference being held at a PCA church in St. Louis on July 26–28. Here is its stated purpose: “Supporting, encouraging, and empowering gay, lesbian, same-sex-attracted, and other LGBT Christians so they can flourish while observing the historic, Christian doctrine of marriage and sexuality.” A number of writers have signaled significant disagreements with the personalities involved with the Revoice conference: Steven Wedgeworth, A Critical Review of Spiritual Friendship , Mere Orthodoxy Kevin DeYoung, Words, Labels, and ‘Sexual Minorities’ , The Gospel Coalition Tim Challies, The Controversy Behind the Revoice Conference , Denny Burk, What about the Revoice Conference? , Richard Phillips, Can the “Welcoming Church” Speak the Truth? , Reformation21 Todd Pruitt, For the Love of Those Fighting Against Homosexuality , Mortificati

CrossFit Fires a Christian After Gay Rights Activists Demand It

By Erick Erickson - Posted at The Resurgent : The employee, on his personal social media feed, defended a CrossFit Box under fire for not having a gay pride event. I do not know Russell Berger well, though we attended Reformed Theological Seminary together. He was chief marketing officer for CrossFit until yesterday afternoon. That's when the gay mob came for Russell. He had the audacity to, on his personal Twitter feed, accurately declare celebrating gay pride a sin. He did so in defense of a CrossFit Box that had generated public outrage for canceling a gay pride event due to the owner's religious beliefs. Russell, again on his personal Twitter feed, defended the owners. This drew the gay mob into organizing mode to fire Russell. They were successful. CrossFit has every right to hire and fire who they want. But we should still point this out as it comes just a few days after the Supreme Court determined bigots against religion are trying to use the power of the sta

Transgender people encouraged to become priests in Church of England diversity drive

Source: Wikipedia By Olivia Rudgard - Posted at The Telegraph : Transgender people are being encouraged to become Church of England vicars as bishops launch a diversity drive. Bishops in the diocese of Lichfield have issued new guidance to parishioners and clergy reminding them that LGBT people "can be called to roles of leadership and service in the local church". The guidance, titled "welcoming and honouring LGBT+ people", warns that the church's reputation as being unwelcoming towards gay and transgender people is stopping young people attending.

Cooperative Baptist Fellowship Lifts Ban on LGBT Staff for Some Roles By Leonardo Blair - Posted at the Christian Post: The Cooperative Baptist Fellowship , a Georgia-based network of 1,800 churches with missionaries in more than 30 countries around the world, announced Friday that it has lifted an 18-year hiring ban on practicing homosexuals for some roles but will not consider them for leadership roles in the organization. "CBF is moving from a hiring policy focused exclusively on sexuality to a policy that focuses on Jesus and His work to transform the world," CBF Executive Coordinator Suzii Paynter said of the organization's new hiring policy. "We are a Fellowship, a big tent of faithful believers and autonomous, innovative churches in partnership. While we do not agree on everything, we have shown Baptists and others that we can come together in a relatively short amount of time, focus on what unites us and come of out it poised for a bright future." In the organization's previous hiring

Educational Diversity Can Easily Turn to Perversity

Posted at The Christian Observer : The perversity of the stress on diversity in our colleges is a form of social engineering, creating many negatives. Diversity is neither good or bad in itself, but can become perversity when many of our colleges and universities are so committed to social engineering that promotes racial, sexual, religious, socio-economic focuses, or whatever it might be instead of true education. When we attack through indoctrination the very foundation upon which our Western Civilization is formed—the Judeo-Christian moral fabric and above the evangelical message of Christ — it is bad. The Bible well says, “There is a way that seems right unto man, but the end thereof is the way of death!” ( Prov. 14:12 ) Scott Greer, author of No Campus for White Men, said the whole purpose of higher education has shifted, saying that: “There’s this new trend in higher education that has not so much stressed teaching people real world skills or knowledge that they co

Christian marginalisation in North America

Posted at The Christian Institute : Christian families that refuse to promote LGBT ideology within the home are under threat from separate measures announced in Canada and the US. In Ontario, a Bill was passed which critics say will rule out parents who oppose gender ideology for adoption and fostering for not providing a home ‘in the best interests of the child’. And in the US, training in “LGBTQ competency” has become a mandatory requirement for employees of the Illinois Department of Children and Family Services (DCFS). Read more here.

Affirm LGBT lifestyles, foster care workers ordered

By Diana Chandler - Posted at Baptist Press : Illinois foster care workers are required to inform LGBT youth of legal rights of "self-determination" regarding gender identity and sexuality, the policy states, opening the door to legal recourse. CHICAGO (BP) -- Foster care workers and families in Illinois must allow gay and transgender youth to express and explore their chosen gender identity and sexual orientation, according to a new state governmental directive. Termination is among the penalties workers with the Illinois Department of Children and Family Services (DCFS) would face for violating the policy, the DCFS said in its new rules added May 11 as Appendix K to the state foster care policy manual. "Staff may not impose personal, organizational or religious beliefs on [lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender] children, youth and families, and in no way should personal beliefs impact the way individual needs of children/youth or families are met," the
