The Devil is transgender

About 5 months ago, I asked in a post when and how transgenders became all the rage in America:

Something is going on to which the American people are not privy.

Every evidence we have is that those who identify themselves as LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender) comprise no more than 5% of the U.S. population.…which means transgenders must be less than 1% of the U.S. population. And yet, if we go by the pervasive news about transgenders and the relentless drumbeat for “transgender rights” by every institution of the Left — by the media, pop culture, academia, and the Obama administration — you would think every other person you meet is a transgender….

The simple truth is that a person’s sex or gender is determined by our DNA, specifically, chromosomes: females have XX chromosomes; males have XY chromosomes. That means no amount of surgical mutilation and hormone “therapy” can actually transform a man into a woman by creating an ovary, uterus or milk-producing breasts; nor can surgery transform a woman into a man by creating sperm, testicles, and a real penis. Those are determined by birth — by our chromosomal DNA. (See “A transsexual regrets his ‘gender-reassignment’ surgery“)

That is why psychiatrist Joseph Berger, M.D. says from a medical and scientific perspective, there is no such thing as a transgendered person.

Paul R. McHugh, M.D., former psychiatrist-in-chief for Johns Hopkins Hospital and its current Distinguished Service Professor of Psychiatry, agrees. According to Dr. McHugh, “transgenders” are people who suffer a “disorder of ‘assumption’” – the notion that their maleness or femaleness is different than what nature assigned to them biologically, much like other body dysmorphic disorders, such as anorexia. The difference, of course, is that body parts like penises, testicles, and breasts are not amputated in an effort to “cure” other assumption disorders.

And yet a year ago, Time magazine’s cover of June 9, 2014 proclaimed that we’re at a “Transgender Tipping Point: America’s Next Civil Rights Frontier.”

Time transgender cover

With the benefit of hindsight, we now know Time was exactly right about the tipping point. In the span of a mere year, U.S. media and pop culture have not just succumbed but fully embraced the scientifically-fictitious transgenderism:

  • Bruce Jenner, who got breast implants but still has male chromosomes and genitalia, is now referred to by the feminine pronouns “she” and “her”.
  • The Pentagon will begin admitting “transgenders” into the military and taxpayers will pay for their gender-reassignment body mutilation surgery.
  • Applicants to the formerly serious institutions of higher learning, the University of California system, are asked to choose among six (!) genders.

We are in Alice’s Through-the-Looking-Glass land where up is down, and down is up, and sane people find themselves in a country gone stark raving mad.

I’ve puzzled about this, especially the dizzying speed of the change in American culture and attitudes. Then came that proverbial light bulb of illumination.

In a July 27, 2015 essay in Patheos, Fr. Dwight Longenecker draws our attention to the Baphomet, a well-known pictorial representation of the devil as androgynous, both male and female, or in today’s parlance, a transgender.

Baphomet

Fr. Longenecker describes the Baphomet:

Rising from his lap is the pagan Caduceus–the rod with two serpents entwined that the pagan god Mercury carries. According to Satanic lore, this is a phallic symbol with the earth powers of the serpent intertwined.

The winged goat headed figure not only has male genitalia, but breasts.

Furthermore, when you look closely you’ll see that the beast has two arms–one male and one female.

On the arms are the Latin words “Solve” and “Coagula”. These mean “Separate” and “Come Together”. These are occult words for the task of the alchemist who takes what is integrated and natural–breaks it and then puts it back together in a new (and perverted) way.

This is precisely what Satan is doing at this time with human sexuality. Through feminism, homosexualism, trans genderism, gender confusion and “identifying” as whatever gender a person wants, the distinctions between male and female are being broken and put back together however it is desired.

The celebration of “Caitlyn” Jenner–indeed the enforced celebration and constant publicity about this “transitioning” is a visual illustration of what is going on.

I will say what Fr. Longenecker hints at and implies: Satanism explains America’s rapid acceptance of transgenders. Indeed, Christ called the Devil “the father of all lies”, and we have been warned by St. Paul (2 Timothy 3:1-4, 12-13):

But know this, that in the last days perilous times will come: For men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, unloving, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, despisers of good, traitors, headstrong, haughty, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God . . . and all who desire to live godly in Christ Jesus will suffer persecution. But evil men and impostors will grow worse and worse, deceiving and being deceived.”

Detroit goes to the devil

Detroit is the most populous city in Michigan — the Detroit metropolitan region holds roughly one-half of the state’s population. According to the 2010 census, 82.7% of Detroit’s population are Black.

With a murder rate of 43.4 per 100,000 in 2014, Detroit has the highest murder rate of any U.S. city, accounting for nearly two-thirds of all murders in the state of Michigan in 2011.

On July 18, 2013, the city filed for bankruptcy — the largest municipal bankruptcy case in U.S. history. Less than 5 months later on Dec. 3, 2013, citing Detroit’s $18.5 billion debt, Judge Steven W. Rhodes of the Bankruptcy Court for the Eastern District of Michigan declared the city to be bankrupt.

One sign of Detroit’s decrepitude are the 80,000 decaying vacant buildings that the bankrupt city can’t afford to tear down. The larger buildings can cost more than $10,000 each to demolish.

As if the city doesn’t have enough problems already, on July 25, 2015, Detroit welcomed the installation of a 9 ft. statue of the devil.

Detroit satan statue

As reported by ABC News, the “largest public satanic ceremony in history” took place Saturday in Detroit when the Boston-based Satanic Temple organization unveiled a nearly 9-foot tall bronze statue of a goat-headed Baphomet in a private ceremony attended by 600 ticket holders.

Tickets for the event were $25 each and the location was revealed only to ticket-holders.

The event served “as a call-to-arms from which we’ll kick off our largest fight to date in the name of individual rights to free exercise against self-serving theocrats,” according to the invitation.

The statue was originally planned to sit at the Oklahoma state capitol, but the state’s supreme court banned all religious displays there, including the Ten Commandments. The statue was created through $28,180 fund-raised by 1,041 people on Indiegogo.com last year.

Detroit has the largest and oldest chapter of the Satanic Temple.

Lucien Greaves, co-founder of the national Satanic Temple organization, said the Detroit chapter has more than 200 registered members. Graves credits the Detroit chapter’s founder Jex Blackmore with the growth of the chapter since it was established there in August 2014.

Greaves said there are 20 Satanic Temple chapters across the country with about 20,000 members as a whole.

The Satanic Temple now plans to erect a Baphomet statue outside Arkansas’ statehouse, where a Ten Commandments monument also is planned.

Meanwhile, on the same day of the satanic unveiling, several hundred Christians protested by attending a Mass at Detroit’s St. Joseph Catholic Church. (AP)

Now I know why Detroit is bankrupt and will remain in dire straits . . . .

Companies that fund Planned Parenthood’s sale of aborted baby body parts

On July 14, 2015, the Center for Medical Progress, headed by a valiant Christian named David Daleiden, released a shocking undercover video showing Planned Parenthood Federation of America’s Senior Director of Medical Services, Dr. Deborah Nucatola, describing how Planned Parenthood (PP) sells the body parts of aborted unborn children (like fetal livers) and has its physicians do unlawful partial-birth abortions to supply intact body parts. See “Planned Parenthood sells body parts of aborted human babies”.

Days later, a second sting video was released, showing another PP senior official, Dr. Mary Gatter, haggling over how much she would charge for the aborted baby body parts. See “Second Planned Parenthood sting video: use “less crunchy” abortion method to get intact body parts for sale” and also “Human baby body parts and tissue for sale“.

Here are 38 companies that have directly funded Planned Parenthood (source: The Daily Signal). Since abortion accounts for 94% of Planned Parenthood’s for-profit business, this means the following ghoulish companies are directly funding the murder of innocent and defenseless human beings, as well as the sale of their body parts and organs:

  1. Adobe
  2. American Cancer Society
  3. American Express
  4. AT&T
  5. Avon
  6. Bank of America
  7. Bath & Body Works
  8. Ben & Jerry’s
  9. Clorox
  10. Converse
  11. Deutsche Bank
  12. Dockers
  13. Energizer
  14. Expedia
  15. ExxonMobil
  16. Fannie Mae
  17. Groupon
  18. Intuit
  19. Johnson & Johnson
  20. La Senza
  21. Levi Strauss
  22. Liberty Mutual
  23. Macy’s
  24. March of Dimes
  25. Microsoft
  26. Morgan Stanley
  27. Nike
  28. Oracle
  29. PepsiCo
  30. Pfizer
  31. Progressive (auto insurance)
  32. Starbucks
  33. Susan G. Komen
  34. Tostitos
  35. Unilever
  36. United Way
  37. Verizon
  38. Wells Fargo

The Daily Signal (TDS) originally listed 41 companies — a list obtained from Planned Parenthood’s website. After TDS first published the list, three companies — Xerox, Ford Motor Co., Coca-Cola — contacted TDS to say their inclusion on PP’s list was erroneous. They asked PP to remove them from its list. PP’s response was to delete the entire list from their website.

Below are some reaction to the two undercover videos.

1. The Good Guys:

2. The Bad Guys:

The following politicians and organizations are defending PP:

  • The Obama administration not only says the selling of aborted babies’ body parts is “ethical,” spokesman Josh Ernest said that Obama, who says he’s a Christian, will not defund Planned Parenthood. That means the evil POS is forcing you, me, and every taxpayer to fund this ghoulish practice, against our conscience.
  • Wannabe-president Hillary Clinton, who calls herself a Christian, on July 23, 2016, defended the Planned Parenthood abortion business, saying PP offers “important services.” Hillary also defended late-term or partial-birth abortions, which is illegal. (H/t FOTM’s MomOfIV)
  • House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi, who calls herself a Catholic Christian, instead of demanding an investigation of PP, wants the Obama administration to investigate the Center for Medical Progress who made the undercover videos.
  • Minnesota governor Mark Dayton refuses to investigate PP.
  • The New York Times also defends PP’s sale of aborted baby parts.
  •  A Rasmussen poll found that 25% of Likely U.S. Voters favor the sale of body organs from aborted babies for use in medical research. 54% oppose, and 22% are undecided. 43% favor the use of fetal tissue in medical research; 34% are opposed; 23% are not sure.

Sunday Devotional: The Long Defeat

2 Timothy 3:1-13

But know this,
that in the last days perilous times will come:
For men will be lovers of themselves,
lovers of money, boasters, proud,
blasphemers, disobedient to parents,

unthankful, unholy, unloving, unforgiving,
slanderers, without self-control, brutal,

despisers of good, traitors, headstrong, haughty,
lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God,
having a form of godliness but denying its power….
Now as Jannes and Jambres resisted Moses,
so do these also resist the truth:
men of corrupt minds, disapproved concerning the faith;
but they will progress no further,
for their folly will be manifest to all, as theirs also was.
But you have carefully followed my doctrine, manner of life,
purpose, faith, longsuffering,
love, perseverance, persecutions, afflictions,
which happened to me at Antioch, at Iconium, at Lystra –
what persecutions I endured.
And out of them all the Lord delivered me.
Yes, and all who desire to live godly in Christ Jesus
will suffer persecution.
But evil men and impostors will grow worse and worse,
deceiving and being deceived.

How these words of St. Paul, written some 2,000 years ago, resonate in our times of ever-worsening corruption and depravity.

Six years ago, would we ever have imagined that we would live in a time when innocent human beings are not just slaughtered, but their body parts sold for profit. Would we ever have imagined that politicians (Obama, Hillary Clinton) would defend the sale as “ethical”? Would we….

The list is endless.

St. Paul’s words, no doubt, had inspired J. R. R. Tolkien’s mournful expression, “the long defeat”.

Tolkien wrote in The Fellowship of the Ring, speaking as Elven queen Galadriel, referring to her husband Celeborn:

“He has dwelt in the West since the days of dawn, and I have dwelt with him years uncounted . . . and together through ages of the world we have fought the long defeat.”

In a letter, Tolkien explained:

Actually I am a Christian, and indeed a Roman Catholic, so that I do not expect ‘history’ to be anything but a ‘long defeat’— though it contains (and in legend may contain more clearly and movingly) some samples or glimpses of final victory. (Letters 255).

Tolkien’s “long defeat” should be understood as a doleful commentary on humanity as a collective, and “defeat” in the sense of countless men and women being obdurately evil, and so are lost to Christ’s salvific self-sacrifice on the cross.

The long defeat.

What an apt characterization of the times we live in and our seemingly fruitless struggle against the ever-rising darkness of the human soul.

Fr. Stephen Freeman, priest of the Orthdox Church in America and rector of St. Anne Orthodox Church in Oak Ridge, Tennessee, observes:

History as a long defeat – I can think of nothing that is more anti-modern than this sentiment expressed by J.R.R. Tolkien. It is a thought perfectly in line with the fathers and the whole of Classical Christian teaching. And it’s anti-modernism reveals much about the dominant heresy of our time.
We believe in progress – it is written into the DNA of the modern world. If things are bad, they’ll get better. . . . But Tolkien’s sentiment bears deeper examination. For not only does it reject the notion of progress, it embraces a narrative of the “long defeat.” . . . If history tells us anything, it is that this is a very honest, even prescient reading.

But Fr. Freeman reminds us:

But the Classical Christian read on human life contains the deepest hope – set precisely in the heart of the long defeat. . . . Tolkien notes that within the long defeat, there are “glimpses of final victory.” I would go further and say that the final victory already “tabernacles” among us. It hovers within and over our world, shaping it and forming it, even within its defeat . . . an End that was always foreseen and present within the Cross itself. And the Cross itself was present “from before the foundation of the world.”

I will be with you always

May the courage of St. Paul, and the peace and love of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you!

Jeremaiah the Conspiracy Buster

idolatryThey had the Patriarchs, they had Moses, they had the Law, the had the Psalms and Proverbs, they had the Prophets, they had Temple, they had the Priesthood, they had their great Kings and their armies.

But hidden from sight they sought to please demons.

The parallels should chill any American to the core.

Then the Lord said to me, “There is a conspiracy among the people of Judah and those who live in Jerusalem.

They have returned to the sins of their ancestors, who refused to listen to my words. They have followed other gods to serve them. Both Israel and Judah have broken the covenant I made with their ancestors.

Therefore this is what the Lord says: ‘I will bring on them a disaster they cannot escape. Although they cry out to me, I will not listen to them.

The towns of Judah and the people of Jerusalem will go and cry out to the gods to whom they burn incense, but they will not help them at all when disaster strikes.

You, Judah, have as many gods as you have towns; and the altars you have set up to burn incense to that shameful god Baal are as many as the streets of Jerusalem.’

“Do not pray for this people or offer any plea or petition for them, because I will not listen when they call to me in the time of their distress.”

– Jeremaiah 11:9-14

National Children’s Leukemia Foundation is a fraud

It is bad enough to defraud people.

It is downright evil to defraud by taking advantage of others’ goodness, which is what fake charities do.

Daily Mail reports, July 22, 2015, that the New York Attorney General has shut down the National Children’s Leukemia Foundation, after an investigation revealed the crooked founder, Zvi “Steve” Shor, had been pocketing nearly $1 million a year while only spending 1% of donations on children with leukemia.

The organization has also been accused of faking audit reports, when no audits were conducted.

Shor started the charity in 1991, following the death of his son from leukemia. He then continued to run the charity from his basement in Brooklyn, New York, amassing $13 million in donations between April 2009 and March 2013. 

Zvi Shor's house in Brooklyn

During this period, Shor was also paying himself a $600,000 salary while sending an additional $655,000 “for research purposes” to a shell organization in Israel run by his sister.

Shor ran the organization as president until 2010, when he was replaced by accountant and auditor Yehuda Gutwein when it was revealed that Shor had been convicted of bank fraud in 1999.

In addition to Shor, the other individuals named in the suit include Gutwein, Shor’s son Shlomo Shor, and Shlomo Donn.
