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.

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)

The dark side of the push for transgenderism: Sex with she-males

Like you, I am perplexed by how the transgender movement has taken America by storm so quickly and successfully in the span of a mere year or two. The big TV networks are aggressively promoting the transgender agenda. Some examples (h/t FOTM’s MomOfIV):

  • ABC Diane Sawyer’s interview with Bruce “Call me Caitlyn” Jenner got rave ratings.
  • PBS aired a 90-minute Frontline special “Growing Up Trans” on June 30, 2015, described as: “Just a generation ago, it was adults, not kids, who changed genders. But today, many children are transitioning, too — with new medical options, and at younger and younger ages. In ‘Growing Up Trans’…FRONTLINE takes viewers on an intimate and eye-opening journey inside the struggles and choices facing transgender kids and their families.”
  • The Learning Channel has a new series beginning July 15 titled, “I Am Jazz,” about a young teenager who was born a boy and has transgendered to a girl since the age of two years old, with the full support of his parents.

Then I began noticing and putting some pieces together.

In his book Miracles, C. S. Lewis presciently observed that “Sexual intercourse is rapidly becoming the one thing venerated in a world without veneration.”

And in a world where sex is the be-all and end-all, and where there no longer are constraints on sexual behavior, people get bored with normal, ordinary sex and look for new thrills to titillate their jaded but never-satiated appetites. One of those new thrills is sex with transgenders, especially men who seek out she-males. The latter are men who imagine themselves to be “transgenders,” but who retain their penises. In other words, transvestites with breast implants.

Here are the pieces I put together:

1. This blog, Fellowship of the Minds, gets hundreds of spam comments a day. Thanks to our server WordPress’s spam filter, 99% of those comments never see the light of day but are dumped into our spam folder. As the owner and administrator of FOTM, I empty our spam folder every morning and, if I have the time, periodically throughout the day. Among the commercial spam for this or that product, I regularly see ads for she-male porn. What is interesting is that we don’t ever get spam for other types of porn. Only she-male porn.

Eddie Murphy

2. Do you remember actor Eddie Murphy being caught in West Hollywood in 1997 with a transsexual prostitute in his car? Murphy said he was simply being a “good Samaritan” by offering a ride in the wee hours of the morning. According to a report by Z107.9 on May 13, 2014, however, 25-year-old mtf (male-to-female) transsexual Honey Dip Ashton is threatening to sue Murphy for $1.2 million for his “empty promises.” Ashton claims “she” had an intimate relationship with Murphy for years and posted a string of tweets detailing “her” encounters with Murphy beginning when Ashton was 17, a minor. Ashton’s tweets include details about Murphy’s home (that she used to give Murphy “oiled massages under the fireplace down in the loft with the black metal spiral staircase”) and his anatomy (Murphy’s penis “bends downward”).

3. Former football pro Hank Baskett (husband of reality TV actress and former girlfriend of Hugh Hefner Kendra Wilkinson) reportedly had an affair with a she-male “model” named Ava Sabrina London when Kendra was 8 months pregnant with the couple’s second child.

Baskett has denied the affair, but London gave National Enquirer a graphic account of “her” tryst with Baskett in April 2014. “She” said Baskett “contacted me through a [YouTube] video I had posted”; paid $400 for a wild sex romp at her Sherman Oaks, Calif., apartment; and that he “absolutely knew” that “she” was a transsexual. The Enquirer had London take a polygraph or lie-detector test administered by a “nationally renowned examiner,” which “she” passed “with flying colors.”

There is a paucity of research on sex with transgenders because, like other political taboos (e.g., homosexuals and pedophilia; race and IQ), it’s one of those politically incorrect topics for scientific research. The following is what little we do know, from an informative Salon article by Tracy Clark-Flory, a self-described “gender queer”:

  • Men who are attracted to trans women are colloquially called “tranny chasers” or “transfans”. The technical term for such attractions is gynandromorphophilia.
  • We don’t know how many men have these attractions, but if porn is any indication, there are many. “T-girl” porn is the 4th most popular type of “adult” porn website, according to the book A Billion Wicked Thoughts, by Sai Gaddam and Ogi Ogas.
  • Heterosexual men are the main consumers of T-girl porn. Gaddam and Ogas speculate that the appeal comes from the “novel juxtaposition” of feminine cues like breasts, with the penis, which “has a special power to activate the male sexual brain.” According to homosexual journalist Daniel Harris, who wrote a memoir titled Diary of a Drag Queen which chronicles his experiences dressing in drag to attract heterosexual men, hetero men are opportunists “willing to overlook the imperfections of the disguise for the sake of a good blow job, which he has heard through the sexual grapevine, correctly as everyone knows is more expertly administered by men than by women.” However, Harris claims that based on his experience, “there isn’t a single type but many types” who are attracted to trans women and drag queens. They include “the man who is actually a homosexual and whose interest in transvestites is exclusively genital,” and “genuine fetishists, the ones who actively seek out transvestites and may even prefer them to women.”
  • According to a Northwestern University online survey of 205 men with a sexual interest in trans women, 51% identified as straight, 41% called themselves bisexual, only 6 men identified themselves as “gay.” Kevin Hsu, one of the study’s researchers, said this “contrasts with one popular misconception that men who have an interest in trans women must be gay men, or closeted gays. The interest in trans women appears to be a distinct sexual interest separate from heterosexual men’s attraction to women for the majority of men, but there is a substantial minority who may experience it as their sexual orientation [i.e., fetish]. That is, their sexual attraction to trans women is the central part of their sexuality and not a secondary interest.”

So how much of the current movement to normalize and popularize transgenderism is driven by this not-talked-about sexual undercurrent? Those who know will never admit it . . . .

German heavy-metal rocker says he was at a snuff party where people pay $100K to watch “people” get killed

There truly is no limit to human depravity.

Snuff movies and snuff parties, where a real person is killed for entertainment, are the stuff of rumor. But now, a heavy metal rocker confirms that snuff parties are real.

Scorpions are a German heavy-metal rock band, founded in 1965. One of the world’s best-selling bands of all time, the group has over 100 million recordings sold. Ralph Rieckermann played bass and provided backing vocals for Scorpions from 1993-2003.

In this video, Riechermann was asked by TMZ if he had attended Berlin’s popular fetish parties, this was Riechermann’s response: “I went to one, one time, really bad ___.”

TMZ asked: “Was it a donkey show [human having sex with a donkey]?”

Riechermann: “No actually, I think they actually killed people there and stuff. They paid like up to a $100,000 to see people get executed. I’m not kidding.”

As if that’s not disturbing enough, Riechermann then said he’s been to an even worse party: “I went to another one, where literally I saw, like, the grossest…. I wanted to throw up.”

Useful Idiot of the Year: Lesbian rabbi objects to ban on sharia law

Definition of “useful idiot“:

An individual who sympathizes or propagandizes for a cause, the goals of which he or she is not fully aware or understand, who cynically is used by the leaders of the cause. Typically, the sympathizers are the first to be killed after the cause succeeds and comes to political power.

Rabbi Robin Nafshi

Rabbi Robin Nafshi, who identifies herself as “the spiritual leader of Temple Beth Jacob in Concord,” New Hampshire, is just such a useful idiot. Does she not know that if America were to come under Islamic control and Americans ruled by sharia law, she — a Jew and open lesbian — would be among the first to be exterminated?

Below is Rabbi Nafshi’s op/ed in the Concord Monitor.

My Turn: The misguided push to ban Sharia Law

By Rabbi Robin Nafshi – Dec. 6, 2014

As the leader of a religious community with a wide range of political views, I am always cautious when speaking out on partisan issues. But sometimes, I must. Now is that time.

On Sept. 20, the delegates of the New Hampshire Republican Party adopted a Platform of Republican Principles. It contains 83 bulleted goals. Number 83 reads as follows:

“Take any and all actions possible to protect against the implementation of any part of Sharia law in New Hampshire, including legislation outlawing Sharia law.”

Sharia means “the way” in Arabic, and Sharia law guides all aspects of Muslim life, including daily routines, familial and religious obligations, and financial dealings. It is derived primarily from the Quran and the Sunna – the sayings, practices and teachings of the Prophet Mohammed.

Sharia law for Muslims is quite similar to Halakhah for Jews. Halakhah means “the way” in Hebrew and it guides all aspect of Jewish life, including daily routines, familial and religious obligations, and financial dealings. It is derived primarily from the Hebrew Bible and the Talmud – the sayings, practices, and teachings of the early Jewish Rabbis.

Why has the Republican Party singled out Sharia law? Why doesn’t it seek to protect against the implementation in New Hampshire of any part of Halakhah, or for that matter, Roman Catholic Canon Law?

Because the New Hampshire Republican Party and other states that have sought similar bans are playing off of what they believe to be a growing fear in this country. We live in a difficult time, historically. Extremist Muslims – a very small percentage of the overall Muslim population – have hijacked a peaceful religion and perverted it into something narrowly construed and intolerant of the West, Jews, Israel, democracy, women’s education and more.

The politicians who endorse anti-Sharia laws are exploiting Americans’ legitimate fears of ISIS, al Qaida, Hamas and other extremist groups in order to ostracize and discriminate against the American Muslim community.

Were the platform’s position to become law in New Hampshire, it would most likely be deemed unconstitutional. In 2010, Oklahoma voters passed a measure banning the use of Sharia law in the state. A federal appeals court declared it an unconstitutional singling out of a particular religion, a violation of both the establishment clause and the free exercise clause of the First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. Oklahoma introduced a modified version. It passed, and Oklahoma joined Alabama, Arizona, Kansas, Louisiana, South Dakota and Tennessee in enacting laws that prohibit courts to consider foreign law.

Such laws are unnecessary – and sometimes result in unintended consequences.

Our state courts apply foreign law only when two parties have negotiated a contract that calls for the application of foreign law. This is done frequently in business, especially when a foreign-based business has a presence in the state. For example, a Canadian business and a New Hampshire business might agree that in the event of a dispute, the matter would be decided in Canada. They have the right to do that, and a New Hampshire court might then be asked to enforce a Canadian judgment. This kind of thing happens all the time in the U.S. There is absolutely nothing wrong with it. But a ban on foreign law in our courts might no longer permit it.

And sometimes, on personal matters, parties agree to be governed by religious law. Many Jewish couples, for example, draw up a prenuptial agreement governed by Jewish law. In the event the marriage ends, it requires the couple to not only obtain a civil divorce, but also to comply with the requirements of divorce under Jewish law. A New Hampshire court would be asked to enforce that contract clause. But a ban on foreign law in our courts might no longer permit it.

While these two examples apply to a “foreign law” ban, we must remember that the Republican Party Platform position would ban only Sharia law. Two Muslims might use the principles of Sharia law to guide a financial contract just the same way the New Hampshire and Canadian businesses might use Canadian law to guide them. In the event of a dispute, however, a court might refuse to recognize the agreement between the two Muslims if the anti-Sharia provision becomes law, while the agreement between the New Hampshire and the Canadian businesses would remain in tact.

Too many people in our world – including, apparently, members of the New Hampshire Republican Party – believe that Sharia law is violent and contrary to our way of life.

Even if that were true, calling for its ban in our courts isn’t necessary. Our courts cannot enforce contractual provisions that violate public policy. If my congregation and I have an employment contract that requires disputes to be settled by a religious arbitrator who would apply Biblical principles, we can do that. But if the arbitrator rules that the congregation should stone me to death for working on the Sabbath, obviously a New Hampshire court would not enforce that ruling. This is the law in every state, making the adoption of a ban on Sharia law – or any foreign law – unnecessary.

There is only one reason for the inclusion of the anti-Sharia law in the Republican Party platform: hostility to Muslims. Muslims who live in America have a deep commitment to American law and the Constitution’s promise of religious freedom. Anti-Sharia proposals serve only to tell Muslims that they are less a part of the American family and less entitled to the protections of the First Amendment than their non-Muslim counterparts.

As a Jew, I know that my people have been persecuted for thousands of years, and that nations throughout history have passed laws to make it more difficult for Jews to practice our faith. I will not stand by and watch that happen to another minority religion. The New Hampshire Republican Party platform position is nothing more, in the words of Abraham Foxman, the director of the Anti-Defamation League, than “camouflaged bigotry.”

In her studies and learnedness, Rabbi Robin Nafshi must have missed the following from the Quran:

Sura 9:5– “Then, when the sacred months have passed, slay the idolaters wherever ye find them, and take them (captive), and besiege them, and prepare for them each ambush.”

Sura 9:29– “Fight those who believe not in Allah nor the Last Day, nor hold that forbidden which hath been forbidden by Allah and His Messenger, nor acknowledge the religion of Truth, (even if they are) of the People of the Book, until they pay the Jizya with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued.”

Nor does the lesbian rabbi know about these:

And since Robin Nafshi and her partner clearly love dogs (see pic below), she really should acquaint herself withWhy Muslims hate dogs.”

God help us, please, from left-wing rabid pro-abort useful idiots like this rabbi.

Baby in Pampers commercial makes devil sign

A baby in a TV commercial for Pampers makes the devil’s horns sign with his right hand and the Illuminati one-eye with his left hand.

Here’s a screenshot at the 0:05 mark of the video:

H/t HenryMakow

The sign of the horns, more sinisterly called the Devil’s horns is formed by extending the index and little fingers while holding the middle and ring fingers down with the thumb (see pic below), which is exactly the sign made by the Pampers baby.

devil's horns

Signifying one’s allegiance to Satan, the hand sign was popularized in the late 1960s by the founder of the Church of Satan Anton LaVey (see pic below) and later was passed on to the masses by rock musicians who were into Satanism.

Anton LaVey

Oddly, the sign of the horns is also the sign for “I Love you” in American Sign Language.

But Helen Keller (1880-1968), who developed sign language for the deaf, is said to be into the occultic Theosophy that was founded by satanist Madame Blavatsky. She is quoted and extolled by Theosophy websites (see here and here). It is curious that, of the many possible signs one can make with the hand, Keller chose a sign for “I love you” which also signifies the Devil’s Horns. Wouldn’t you pick another hand sign instead?

Keller was a member of the Socialist Party of America and the Industrial Workers of the World, and campaigned for women’s suffrage, labor rights, socialism, “and other radical left causes.” (Wikipedia)

Keller was also an admirer of eugenicist Margaret Sanger. In a Dec. 8 1952 letter to Sanger, Keller called Sanger’s founding of Planned Parenthood in India to be “wonderful news” and obsequiously wrote: “Affectionately I salute you, Margaret Sanger, as the prophet and the the woman Prometheus of humanity’s highest physical and mental welfare.”
