A number of parents have spoken out against the Missouri Department of Mental Health’s Missouri Student Survey, which was issued at school and asked their sixth grade children whether they feel like they were born in the wrong gender.
One parent, Samantha Overkramer, told KMOV, “The most inappropriate one was if they were transgender or thought about changing genders,” Overkramer said. “My daughter, I mean she just doesn’t understand that.”
Courtney West, parent of one of the students at Bourbon Middle School in the Crawford R-1 School District, commented, “To me, anyone asking my 11-year-old daughter if she likes girls or boys, and if she wants to be transgender, if that’s not a parent, or it’s not coming from me, that’s just perverted.”
The survey, which is also known as the Safe and Drug Free Schools and Community survey, inquired whether some boys feel like they were born in the wrong bodies and should be girls, and vice versa.
“Those who want to renew their vows will find a service that is adaptable for a variety of people and places. Also included is a brief service of prayer for those who seek a way to ritually mark the end of a marriage.”
A sodomite activist group has sought to impose mandatory sexually perverse lessons on kids as young as five years old, demanding that they “learn about homosexual, bisexual and transgender issues.”
May I ask the obvious before continuing? What business does a 5-year-old need to know about sexuality, except they are a boy or girl at that age? They have absolutely no business being indoctrinated with sodomite, mentally ill and sexually perverse indoctrination at all, let alone at five years old!
The leader of the Free Church of Scotland has criticised a call to make LGBT education compulsory in all schools across Scotland.
Revd David Robertson, Moderator of the Free Church, said the proposal is a “Trojan horse to impose an ideological perspective on all pupils”.
Pro-LGBT group Time for Inclusive Education (TIE) has launched a petition demanding that children as young as five learn about homosexual, bisexual and transgender issues, and this week it addressed the Scottish Parliament’s Public Petitions Committee.
The U.S. Supreme Court declined Monday to hear a case involving a Mississippi law that allows government and private business workers to say their religious beliefs won’t permit them to offer services to LGBT people.
That decision leaves intact a federal appeals court ruling that permitted the law to go into effect. A three-judge panel determined the challengers of the law did not prove they would be harmed by the measure.
In June of last year, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 5th Circuit lifted an injunction that was preventing the enforcement of the Protecting Freedom of Conscience from Government Discrimination Act (HB 1523).
“Good laws like Mississippi’s protect freedom and harm no one,” said Alliance Defending Freedom Senior Counsel Kevin Theriot in a statement. “The 5th Circuit was right to find that those opposing this law haven’t been harmed and, therefore, can’t try to take it down.”
Drag clubs are nothing new in New York City — but it took a 10-year-old to dream up the first drag club for children.
Desmond Napoles from Brooklyn in New York City is better known by his drag name, Desmond is Amazing. Though still quite young, he first expressed an interest in dressing up in drag as a toddler and has become somewhat of a celebrity on the drag circuit.
And he is convinced that there are more kids out there just like him. So now, the precocious youngster is launching Haus of Amazing, the ‘first and only drag club for kids,’ where no adults are allowed.
When Desmond was younger, he would fashion bed sheets and towels into dresses and wigs, and would ‘clomp up and down the hallway in his mother’s high heels.’
“Queering the Bible” is a one-credit class that surveys “queer and trans readings of biblical texts.”
“By reading the Bible with the methods of queer and trans theoretical approaches, this class destabilizes long held assumptions about what the Bible – and religion – says about gender and sexuality,” the course description reads.
The school’s religion department is also teaching a class that questions the sexuality of the Almighty called, “Queering God: Feminist and Queer Theology.”
A woman who requested a female nurse for an intimate procedure was given an “obviously male” member of staff with stubble and tattoos, who claimed to be a transsexual.
The National Health Service (NHS) patient said she was “embarrassed and distressed” when summoned by a nurse with “an obviously male appearance … close-cropped hair, a male facial appearance and voice, large number of tattoos and facial stubble” to carry out a cervical smear, The Timesreports.
When she pointed out what she thought was a mistake, the nurse told her off: “My gender is not male. I’m a transsexual.”
Speaking after the examination, which she ultimately decided to abandon, the patient said it was “weird where somebody says to you: ‘My gender is not male’ and you think: ‘Well, what does that even mean? You are clearly a man.’ ”
California has become the first state in the union to mandate the use of LGBT-inclusive textbooks in elementary schools and have given parents no way to opt out. The choice has been made for them. It’s the law.
That law requires a “fair, accurate, inclusive, and respectful” treatment of homosexual, bisexual, transgender, and lesbian Americans despite the historical insignificance.
“We’re not trying to make anybody gay; we’re not saying there’s an agenda; we’re not saying that these people are better than other people; what we’re saying is this is another group of Americans and they face certain prejudices,” said state publisher Mark Jarrett, whose history textbooks include special mention of the sexual preferences of historical figures like Jane Adams, Emily Dickinson, Nathaniel Hawthorne, President James Buchanan, though it’s inconclusive if these prominent Americans were gay or not.
A Kentucky Family Court judge who earlier this year said he cannot hear adoption cases involving gay or lesbian people, arguing that he is looking after the best interests of children, has been found guilty of misconduct.
The Louisville Courier Journal reported on Tuesday that W. Mitchell Nance, who previously announced his intention to resign on Dec. 16 due to the ethics and misconduct inquiry launched against him, has now been issued a public reprimand by the Judicial Conduct Commission.
The reprimand, passed by a 4–1 vote and made available online, says that the Kentucky code of judicial conduct requires judges to “fairly and impartially decide cases according to the law.”
December 20, 2017 (Newsbusters) – On CNN’s New Day Sunday, the show devoted a four-minute segment to the new children’s book Santa’s Husband, which portrays Santa Claus as a gay man who gets married to another man. The segment included as guests the author, Daniel Kibblesmith, and illustrator Ashley Quach, with Kibblesmith recalling that he was partially inspired to write the book because of the complaints that are made each year about a “war on Christmas.”
At 6:12 a.m. ET, CNN co-anchor Christi Paul plugged the interview: “There’s a new children’s book out this Christmas — takes us inside Santa’s wedding. We meet Santa’s husband David. We’re going to talk to the author and illustrator ahead.”
In the second plug at 6:51 a.m. ET, Paul and co-host Victor Blackwell vaguely admitted that some are “not so happy” about the book:
PAUL: Still ahead, a holiday children’s book tells the story of Santa Claus with a fresh, new twist. There are some families, though, not so happy about the book’s maybe not so hidden agenda.
