California State knows best for your child

State bans gayhomosexual-repair therapy for minors

San Francisco Chronicle: California has become the first state in the country to ban controversial  therapy practices that attempt to change the sexual orientation of minors after  Gov. Jerry Brown signed a bill  to outlaw them Saturday.

The bill, SB1172 by Sen. Ted Lieu, D-Torrance (Los Angeles County), bars mental health practitioners from  performing so-called reparative therapy, which professional psychological  organizations have said may cause harm. Gay Homosexual rights groups have labeled them  dangerous and abusive.

“This bill bans non-scientific ‘therapies’ that have driven young people to  depression and suicide. These practices have no basis in science or medicine and  they will now be relegated to the dustbin of quackery,” Brown said in a  statement to The Chronicle.

National gay homosexual rights organizations had been lobbying the governor intensely to  sign the therapy ban. The Human Rights Campaign, the nation’s largest lesbian, gay homosexual, bisexual and transgender  rights organization, sent Brown a petition with nearly 50,000 signatures urging  him to approve the measure.

“LGHBT youth will now be protected from a practice that has not only been  debunked as junk science, but has been proven to have drastically negative  effects on their well-being. We commend Gov. Brown for putting children first,  and call on all states to take California’s lead on this issue,” said Chad Griffin, president of the Human Rights Campaign.

Penalty for therapists

Under the new law, which will take effect Jan. 1, no mental health provider  will be able to provide therapy that seeks “to change behaviors or gender  expressions, or to eliminate or reduce sexual or romantic attractions or  feelings toward individuals of the same sex.”

Mental health professionals who violate the law, which applies to therapy for  patients younger than 18, will be subject to discipline by whatever group  licenses them.

The therapy often starts from the premise that a person’s childhood and  parental upbringing has somehow left that person deficient and thus has led him  or her to same-sex attractions. Practitioners often are religious, and gay  homosexual rights groups have derisively characterized the therapy as an attempt to “pray  away the gay.”

As Eowyn noted last October, California law lets 12-Yr-olds get STD vaccines without parental knowledge. Eowyn also pointed out:

Nos. 40 and 41 of the “45 Communist Goals for America” that was entered into the Congressional Record on January 10, 1963, are:

Discredit the family as an institution. Encourage promiscuity and easy divorce” and “Emphasize the need to raise children away from the negative influence of parents.”

California, working very hard on owning your children.

Tolerance…just a one way street for some

The new “normal” family…

Remember the post I did about the new NBC show called “The New Normal”?

“Bryan and David are a Beverly Hills homosexual couple and they have it all. Well, almost. With successful careers and a committed and loving homosexual partnership, the one thing missing is a baby. And just when they think the stars will never align, enter Goldie, an extraordinary young woman with a checkered past. A Midwestern waitress and single mother looking to escape her dead-end life and small-minded grandmother, Goldie decides to change everything and move to L.A. with her precocious eight-year-old daughter. Desperate and broke – but also fertile – Goldie quickly becomes the guys’ surrogate and quite possibly the girl of their dreams. Surrogate mother, surrogate family.”

A Utah station is refusing to air the show and, oh my goodness, how intolerant of them!

Insidetv: The same Mormon-owned Utah station that refused to carry NBC’s The Playboy Club last season is now giving a thumbs down to the net’s new comedy The New Normal.

The CEO of KSL-TV’s parent company said that “from time to time we may struggle with content” and that the dialogue may be “excessively rude.” The comedy from Glee creator Ryan Murphy is about a gay couple who relies on a surrogate to have a baby. “For our brand, this program feels inappropriate on several dimensions, especially during family viewing time,” said Jeff Simpson of Bonneville International.

NBC issued this response: “The New Normal is a contemporary look at how families are defined today, portrayed through a comedic prism. We are confident that the show will find another home in the Salt Lake City market.” NBC insiders have long pointed out that the station is in a unique situation since its parent company Bonneville is owned by the Church of The Latter-day Saints. But like Playboy Club, New Normal is expected to find a new home. (In this case, it will be via the independent station KUCW). It will apparently air on weekends, the Tribune reports.

In the meantime, GLAAD joined in on the fray Saturday. “Same-sex families are a beloved part of American television thanks to shows like Modern Family, Glee and Grey’s Anatomy,” said President Herndon Graddick in a statement. “While audiences, critics and advertisers have all supported lesbian-gay-bisexual-transgender stories, KSL is demonstrating how deeply out of touch it is with the rest of the country. We invite Jeff Simpson to sit down with GLAAD and local LGBT families. We know that if he would, he would see that not only are our families normal, but my citing ‘crude and rude’ content and refusing to affirm LGBT families, KSL and Mr. Simpson are sending a dangerous message in Utah. They should make it right.”

Earlier this year, the conservative group that dubs itself One Million Moms called for a boycott of the comedy that stars Justin Bartha and Ellen Barkin. Murphy has this to say at this summer’s Television Critics Tour: “Every person and group has a right to protest something. I find it to be interesting that they would take a position before they’ve seen it. I think if they watch the show, I actually think they would love it. For the first time they will be represented! Ellen Barkin’s character is a member of the Million Moms! She will protest people and events and I think it will be great fodder for Brian and David’s characters to talk about. In many ways this show is about tolerance and the discussion of the tolerance and its delivered with sensitivity with a certain amount of veracity.

The oh-so-tolerant “Million Mom”…

You want to talk about tolerance and the “Million Mom” Ellen Barkin?  How about we look at some of her recent tweets?

  • 19 Jul 12: Gotta go to bed.Work in morning.I love everybody…except u right wing fuckin morons.X
  • 26 Jul 12: @Fly_Pete @Cajun_Manor strong! Every1knows Breitbart died from Peruvian Flu *snert* ” Wow really did not know that. Explains the crazy.
  • 27 Jul 12: Didn’t want a one sided twitter feed,but 2 tell the truth these ppl r way 2 scary ugly 2 add 2 my convos.Fuck ’em & block

And of course, those intolerant folks that refuse to air her show, well, they’re just bigots:

  • 24 Aug 12: Anyone in Utah interested in #NBCTheNewNormal please clog up @KSL5TV feed 4 their blatantly homophic decision 2 not air the show @KSLBigots
  • 24 Aug 12: @KSL5TV…Sorry if we got your sacred undergarments tangled up. This girl just can’t help it. #TheMormonTwist @NBCTheNewNormal

So much for an open discussion about tolerance.

Kirk Cameron now a target…

tol-er-ance: The capacity for or the practice of recognizing and respecting the beliefs or practices of others…

Kirk Cameron Blasted by GLAAD Over Gay Marriage Comments
TMZ:  Kirk Cameron’s comments to Piers Morgan on gay marriage are not sitting well with the folks at GLAAD … who think the former “Growing Pains” star “sounds even more dated than his 1980s TV character.”
Cameron said during last night’s show that he does not support gay marriage, and when it comes to homosexuality in general … he said, “I think that it’s … unnatural. I think that it’s detrimental, and ultimately destructive to so many of the foundations of civilization.”
Herndon Graddick, Senior Director of Programs at GLAAD, tells TMZ he feels Cameron, a Born Again Christian, is “out of step with a vast majority of Americans, particularly people of faith who believe that their gay and lesbian brothers and sisters should be loved and accepted based on their character and not condemned because of their sexual orientation.”
A GLAAD spokesman says they plan on monitoring Cameron’s media bookings and various acting gigs to ensure “the news and entertainment industry is aware of his outrageous anti-gay views.”
[youtube=https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9W3Wix0rlgU]
I’m sick and tired of bleeding heart liberals calling themselves the tolerant ones when, in fact, they have no tolerance if you don’t agree with them. Why isn’t Kirk allowed to express his personal Christian beliefs without being condemned?  Why must he get in line with the “vast majority of Americans”? 
You want to be gay?  Have at it.  I don’t care what you do in the privacy of your home.  But that doesn’t mean I, as a Christian, have to change my belief that marriage is between a man and a woman. 
Can you imagine the backlash if Christians decided to monitor GLAAD’s activities to bring attention to their outrageous anti-Christian views?

Who defines the terms of the debate?

Debate: : a contention by words or arguments: as a : the formal discussion of a motion before a deliberative body according to the rules of parliamentary procedure b : a regulated discussion of a proposition between two matched sides.
New York Times interviewed Sex and the City actress Cynthia Nixon in which she talked about her childhood, education, acting career, and of course, her sexual orientation. 
She was once married to Daniel Mozes and had two children with him.  She is now  involved with Christine Marinoni. With the help of a male friend Nixon will not identify, Marinoni conceived a child. She gave birth to their son, Max Ellington Nixon-Marinoni, on Feb. 7, 2011.

Cynthia (r) and her girlfriend Christine


From the Times: 
Nixon manages to keep a similarly cleareyed perspective on her relationship with Marinoni, despite the titillation it has caused in the tabloid media. She has less tolerance for the skepticism she says her relationship has sparked among some gay activists who find her midlife switch in sexual orientation disingenuous.
“I totally reject that,” she said heatedly. “I gave a speech recently, an empowerment speech to a gay audience, and it included the line ‘I’ve been straight and I’ve been gay, and gay is better.’ And they tried to get me to change it, because they said it implies that homosexuality can be a choice. And for me, it is a choice. I understand that for many people it’s not, but for me it’s a choice, and you don’t get to define my gayness for me. A certain section of our community is very concerned that it not be seen as a choice, because if it’s a choice, then we could opt out. I say it doesn’t matter if we flew here or we swam here, it matters that we are here and we are one group and let us stop trying to make a litmus test for who is considered gay and who is not.”
Her face was red and her arms were waving. “As you can tell,” she said, “I am very annoyed about this issue. Why can’t it be a choice? Why is that any less legitimate? It seems we’re just ceding this point to bigots who are demanding it, and I don’t think that they should define the terms of the debate. I also feel like people think I was walking around in a cloud and didn’t realize I was gay, which I find really offensive. I find it offensive to me, but I also find it offensive to all the men I’ve been out with.
So the homosexual community is upset because she made a choice to be gay?  She slept with men and is now with a woman (isn’t that bisexuality?).  Aren’t the tolerant liberals suppose to be all about “choice”?  I’m confused…
I dont’ care what you do in the privacy of your bedroom.  What I do care about is your inability to debate those that have a different opinion than yours.  Who does define the terms of the debate?  Certainly not any “bigot” that may have an opinion that doesn’t align with yours.
John Stuart Mill, a British philosopher, posed a view on freedom of speech that I like to refer to when a “tolerant” liberal cannot adequately express a critical opinion and attempts to shut down those that disagree with them.

An influential advocate of freedom of speech, Mill objected to censorship. He says: “I choose, by preference the cases which are least favourable to me – In which the argument against freedom of opinion, both on truth and that of utility, is considered the strongest. Let the opinions impugned be the belief of God and in a future state, or any of the commonly received doctrines of morality… But I must be permitted to observe that it is not the feeling sure of a doctrine (be it what it may) which I call an assumption of infallibility. It is the undertaking to decide that question for others, without allowing them to hear what can be said on the contrary side.

Mills outlines the benefits of ‘searching for and discovering the truth’ as a way to further knowledge. He argued that even if an opinion is false, the truth can be better understood by refuting the error. And as most opinions are neither completely true nor completely false, he points out that allowing free expression allows the airing of competing views as a way to preserve partial truth in various opinions. Mill also eloquently argued that freedom of expression allows for personal growth and self-realization. He said that freedom of speech was a vital way to develop talents and realise a person’s potential and creativity.

Ms. Nixon would have more weight, in my opinion, if she could comprehensively describe why she believes the “bigots” (homosexual community) have no right to define the terms of the debate (starting with why you label someone a “bigot” if they don’t have the same belief as you).  And if you truly believe in your convictions, you should have no problem taking them on head on in a debate, without resorting to name-calling. 
Who defines the terms of a debate?  Apparently not those that disagree with you.

California Law Lets 12-Yr-Olds Get STD Vaccines w/out Parental Knowledge


Nos. 40 and 41 of the “45 Communist Goals for America” that was entered into the Congressional Record on January 10, 1963, are:

Discredit the family as an institution. Encourage promiscuity and easy divorce” and “Emphasize the need to raise children away from the negative influence of parents.”

Last Sunday, October 9, 2011, in the name of preventative medical care, California Governor Jerry Brown signed into law a bill that does just that.
Assembly Bill 499 allows a minor who is 12 years of age or older to consent to medical care related to the prevention of a sexually transmitted disease (STD) — such as vaccines for HPV, HIV and hepatitis — without parental consent or knowledge.
The bill was introduced by Assemblywoman Toni Atkins and co-authored by Assemblywoman Fiona Ma — both Democrats.
Ten other states and the District of Columbia have similar laws allowing such “preventative care” for minors without parental consent.
Critics of the law and advocates for parent’s rights have spoken out against the measure, but to no avail.  President of SaveCalifornia.com, Randy Thomasson said, “[Governor] Brown has no excuse to deny patients essential information and trample parents’ consent for their children, who lack the brain development to make big decisions like this.  It is unfair and wrong for AB 499 to coerce children behind their parents’ backs, when calling or emailing a child’s mother or father to set an appointment is the respectful way to communicate vital information and answer important questions.”
As blogger Giacomo notes:

“In the United States, parents have a legal obligation to care for and provide for all minor age children.  If a minor causes damage to someone else’s property, the parents are legally responsible for restitution.  In most states, a parent cannot evict a child under the age of 18; 16 in some states.  In cases of divorce and child support, one of the parents are generally liable to pay monthly child support to the other until the child reaches 18 and in some states graduate from high school.

Yet when it comes to one of the most personal, moral and religious subjects of sexually promiscuity, parents have absolutely no rights to know or control their minor child’s activities. It’s because of the need of the liberal socialists to undermine and erode both religious and family values of a people in order to set up a socialist government.

What’s even more scary is that these laws coincide with similar laws being pushed by the United Nations to give complete sexual freedom to all children down to the age of 10 to 12.”

By the way, you’d be interested to know that:

  • No. 11 of the “45 Communist Goals for America” is “Promote the U.N. as the only hope for mankind. If its charter is rewritten, demand that it be set up as a one-world government with its own independent armed forces”;
  • No. 15 is “Capture one or both of the political parties in the United States.”
  • No. 17 is “Get control of the schools. Use them as transmission belts for socialism and current Communist propaganda. Soften the curriculum.”
  • No. 20 is “Infiltrate the press.”
  • No. 26 is “Present homosexuality, degeneracy and promiscuity as “normal, natural, healthy.”
  • No. 28 is “Eliminate prayer or any phase of religious expression in the schools on the ground that it violates the principle of “separation of church and state.”
  • No. 29 is “Discredit the American Constitution by calling it inadequate, old-fashioned, out of step with modern needs, a hindrance to cooperation between nations on a worldwide basis.”

I can go on, but you get the picture….
To quote the kids: “Are we there yet?”

Persecution of Christians in America: Teacher Removed for Criticizing Gay Marriage

If you’re still wondering whether America has fallen under the Tyranny of the Left, I present you these two contrasting cases:

Exhibit One:

Corey Wight, 55, WSDOT employee


A state employee keeps his job even though he’s accused of stabbing and robbing the prostitutes he solicited. Corey G. Wight, a Washington State Department of Transportation (WSDOT) engineer, was allowed to return to work because the WSDOT says it can’t fire him because his offense isn’t “directly related to the scope of his employment.”

Exhibit Two:

But a high school teacher is removed from teaching for saying he disapproves of gay marriage on his personal Facebook site.
John-Henry Westen reports for LifeSiteNews, “Florida High School removes teacher for criticizing gay ‘marriage’ on Facebook,” August 18, 2011:

Mount Dora High School has removed a veteran social-studies teacher Gerald (Jerry) Buell from his classroom for Facebook comments critical of homosexual ‘marriage’. Christopher Patton, Communications Officer for Lake County Schools told LifeSiteNews that Buell was moved to administrative duties pending the results of an investigation into a suspected code of ethics violation.

On his personal Facebook account, outside of school time, Buell posted a reaction to New York’s passage of homosexual ‘marriage’ saying he “almost threw up.” He also referred to homosexual unions as sinful and referred to it as part of a “cesspool” of behaviors in remarks quoted by the Sentinel.

While LifeSiteNews was unable to reach Buell at his home, his staff page on the school’s website – which has been deleted at the time of this publication – revealed him to be a devout Christian. “First and foremost, I am a man of God,” he wrote. “I try to teach and lead my students as if Lake Co. Schools had hired Jesus Christ himself. That doesn’t mean I give a sermon and serve communion each day…what it means is I try my very best to teach and serve and minister to my students as a teacher led by and connected to the Creator of the Universe.”

In answer to castigations of being hateful, Buell told the Orlando Sentinel, “I’ve had kids that I’ve known that have been homosexuals. They know that I don’t hate them. I love them. It wasn’t out of hatred It was about the way I interpret things.”

Patton told LSN that a complaint email was received Tuesday with quotes given to the Sentinel. Buell, he said, has thus been removed from his classroom and reassigned to the district office to undertake other non-teaching duties while the board investigates if his actions constitute a breach of the code of ethics.

A very similar case to that of Buell’s is the Canadian case of teacher Chris Kempling who in 1995 was suspended from teaching for writing letters to a local newspaper explaining Christian belief on homosexuality. Kempling fought the charges all the way to the Canadian Supreme Court, where his appeal was denied – leaving him with hundreds of thousands of dollars in legal fees.

Buell’s is not new to the United States. Last summer a Catholic professor was fired from the University of Illinois for sending an email to students in a course on Catholic doctrine, explaining how homosexual activity is contrary to the natural moral law.

More recently Canadian television sportscaster Damian Goddard was fired for Tweeting his support of Burlington hockey agent Todd Reynolds, who created a stir when he criticized New York Rangers hockey star Sean Avery for shooting a TV ad backing gay “marriage.” “I completely and wholeheartedly support Todd Reynolds and his support for the traditional and TRUE meaning of marriage,” Goddard tweeted.

+++

Please stop this Tyranny of the Left. Do something by expressing your disapproval and outrage to Buell’s principal and the school board.

Going After Our Children


WARNING: Graphic language contained in this post.
A group, called “FCKH8” (lovely name, right?) has released a video that describes the “Top 5 Reasons 2 Ban Gay Marriage”. As The Blaze reports:
“An in-your-face video supporting gay marriage in Minnesota and mocking Christians has drawn the ire of some gay-rights activists who say the clip—full of f-bombs, racy visuals, and even same-sex kissing by very young-looking actors—leaves them “creeped out.”
You must watch the video here (it’s been removed from YouTube). Click on “Step 1: Watch” to see the video.
The clip’s final scene features two very young-looking males (they appear to be about 10, 11 or 12? to me) holding hands. The first says, “If I grew up gay…” and the second finishes the phrase saying, “…I want to get married someday”—and then they appear to kiss.
The other actors in the video—with over-the-top make-up and neon-colored clothing (some males only in T-shirts and tiny underwear)—make fun of gay-marriage opponents and Christians by satirically stating phrases on why gay marriage is wrong.
The actors portray Christians in particular as mindless followers of church laws. One girl, twirling her hair, sarcastically says that homosexuality is wrong because “the Bible tells me so.” It also displays a string of actors completing each other’s sentences, saying the Bible “tells me it’s okay to sell my daughter into slavery and to stone people that work on Sunday. So it’s great for making laws.”
Some transcript from this over-the-top video:

  • Reason No. 1: Homosexuality is completely f*cking with the laws of nature. Just like antibiotics.
  • Reason No. 2: My church doesn’t believe in gay marriage.
  • Homos are a f*cking abomination.
  • Reason No. 3: Homo marriages are not real marriages. Hello, because a** f*cking and scissoring (I don’t even want to know what that is)…
  • Just like it’s against the law for those f*cking menapousal chicks…to get legally married.
  • Gayness is super f*cking contagious.
  • Better to be an orphan than have two mommies.
  • You got a problem with gay marriage? F*ck you (complete with finger visuals).
  • Get gay for the cause!

I cannot go on…listening to this video several times and watching those two young boys kiss at the end has made me sick to my stomach.
With their on-line presence and catchy tunes, colors , and gear, this may appeal to many young kids.  I can only hope that parents are monitoring what their children are watching.  God help our children.

Soldiers to Receive Gay PC Training

The joke's on us!


Just what our servicemen need while dodging bullets and buried mines in the battlefield:

PC training on how to treat, live with, and shower alongside gays.

Welcome to the Late Great U. S. of A.
~Eowyn
Entire U.S. Army to receive gay sensitivity training by the end of the summer…even if they’re on the battlefield
Daily Mail – Feb 26, 2011
The entire U.S. Army will receive gay sensitivity training by the end of the summer, according to a military spokesman. Combat troops currently deployed in Afghanistan will also be trained while they are in the war zone rather than when they return to their bases on American soil.

Programme: The entire U.S. Army will receive gay sensitivity training even combat troops currently deployed in Afghanistan

The Pentagon’s training programme follows on from the repeal of the ‘don’t ask, don’t tell’ ban which required gay troops to hide their sexuality. 
President Obama signed a bill last year to end the ban but it will stay in place until the secretary of defense decides the policy will not interfere with combat readiness. Robert M Gates has said gays will be able to declare their sexual preference openly within the army before the end of 2011.


Obama signed repeal of DADT last year. What happened to Pelosi's face? Looks like her "picture of Dorian Gray" is finally catching up with her face....


 

Army Command Sergeant Major, Marvin Hill, said no unit would be exempt from taking the programme that will teach gay rights.”‘I have heard about the training that will be forthcoming to the battlefield,” he told Pentagon reporters via a teleconference from Kabul. “We will take our directions from the Department of Defense, from the secretary of defense, the chairman, as well as the service chiefs of each service. Our plan is to take their direction, and we’re going to execute that training right here on the battlefield. Our goal is to not allow a unit to return to home station and have the unit responsible for that. While we own those soldiers, sailors, airmen and Marines, we’re going to execute that training on the ground. We hope that it will have little impact on their combat and security operations here.”
What the actual programme involves is not yet available to the media, but a spokesman for the U.S. Army, told MailOnline that there would be “structured lesson plans”. The training will be broken down into three sections. The first section is for specialists like chaplains, lawyers and investigators. The second is for commanders in the field. The third is for the rest of the force – 2.2million active and reserve troops. “We expect the entire army of over a million people to be trained by the end of the summer”, the spokesman added.
Before the programme was announced Sergeant Hill, who has been an ardent advocate of the repeal, said on Washington Watch in December: “If there are people who cannot deal with the change, then they’re going to have to do what’s best for their troops and best for the organisation and best for the military service and exit the military service, so that we can move forward – if that’s the way that we have to go.”
Some have not been so keen however. Elaine Donnelly, who heads the Center for Military Readiness, called the move to train combat soldiers engaging in daily battle “‘ridiculous”.  “It’s absurd because the military has more important things to think about in that dangerous part of the world,” she told The Washington Times. “‘For the administration to say this is more important than even with the troops we’re trying to train in that part of the world, I think it shows flawed priorities at best.”
