The following comes from an April 10 Ateleia article by John Burger:
President Obama is calling for an end to “reparative therapies” aimed at helping young people rid themselves of same-sex attraction and identification as “transgender.”
The White House posted a statement Wednesday evening alongside a WhiteHouse.gov petition for support to end the controversial practices.
“We share your concern about its potentially devastating effects on the lives of transgender as well as gay, lesbian, bisexual and queer youth,” the statement, written by Valerie Jarrett, a senior adviser to Obama, says. “As part of our dedication to protecting America’s youth, this administration supports efforts to ban the use of conversion therapy for minors.”
The New York Times quoted White House officials saying Obama will not explicitly call for a federal law banning therapists from using such therapies on their patients, “but he is open to conversations with lawmakers in both parties. Instead, he will throw his support behind the efforts to ban the practice at the state level.”
Aleteia reached out to experts on the subject as well. Dale O’Leary, author of The Gender Agenda: Redefining Equality, shared a forthcoming article, part of which reads:
Suppose parents are informed that their child has a serious condition, one for which the recommended treatment includes a lifetime regime of powerful drugs which can cause serious even life threatening side effects, mutilating surgeries, which can leave scars and compromise urinary track function, and result in the total loss of the ability to procreate and the partial or complete loss of genital function and pleasure. Even with this radical treatment, their child would be at high risk for depression, other psychological disorders, suicidal ideation and attempts, and a shortened life span. In addition their child would have to hide this condition.
Should these parents be allowed to seek a second opinion?
President Obama and his advisor Valerie Jarret say no. However, according to the National Transgender Discrimination Survey of 6,450 persons who self-identify as transgender 41% said they had attempted suicide, versus 1.6% of the general public.
O’Leary noted that according to the latest psychiatric profession standards in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-5), “the risk of suicide persists even after surgery.”
As if to adhere to a “practice what you preach” principle, the administration also announced the creation of an “all-gender restroom” in the Eisenhower Executive Office Building, where many of the White House staff members work, “to provide an additional option for transgender individuals who are not comfortable using either the men’s or women’s restrooms,” the Times reported.
My Father Was Gay. Why I Oppose Same-Sex Marriage.
It took me decades to come to my views on same-sex “marriage” in light of my personal experiences.
From infancy, I was unwittingly identified under the gay, lesbian, bisexual and transsexual (GLBT) umbrella… exposed to a lot of expressed sexuality in the home and subcultures. I experienced uncountable losses. Gender was supposed to be boundless; yet, I did not see my father and his partners valuing, loving and affirming women…
As a dependent child and teen, I was not allowed to say anything that would hurt the feelings of the adults around me. If I did, I could face ostracism or worse…
-for a long while, I denied the impact my childhood had had and lied to protect my father (who) died of AIDS. None of my father’s partners/ex-partners are still alive…
– my father never would have supported same-sex “marriage.” he knew that every child is created from both a father and a mother…
The Push to Quiet Me and Others
Due to media silencing, political correctness, GLBT lobbying efforts and loss of freedom of speech, it is very hard to tell my story.
But I am not alone. (Many) left the “gay” lifestyle have contacted me. Very few children will share their stories publicly…
many adult children of gay parents conclusion is that same-sex marriage is more about promoting adults’ “desires” than safeguarding children’s rights to know and be raised by their biological parents.
Michael excellent post. May it reach the right hearts, longing for edification in reality. Your post is something that the enemy doesnt want spoken. Glad you posted. God bless you.
To the poster, Michael McDermott— you are quoting from the article, written by Dawn Stefanowicz, right?? She had a horrible upbringing, with a gay father, who had many partners, and died of AIDS. But your writing is too confusing– it sounds as though the person is YOU– not Dawn, who had these terrible experiences! I have seen her several times on television, telling her terrible story, and urging everyone not to support gay “marriage!” I think she is Canadian, right? PLEASE CLARIFY!! Thanks! And if you also were talking about a horrible childhood, which you, yourself, endured— of a gay father and his lovers, and his death due to AIDS– I am so sorry! May God bless you!
Linda Marie – Sorry about any confusion, the Entire Quote was from an article by Dawn Stefanowicz – which I had thought the link would have clarified, but I can see where some might get confused.
It is Not a first hand account from me – but rather a story I pared down to the 250 word limit for posting here, and as such omitted details contained in the story as linked.
Mea Culpa for any Misunderstanding. Twere not mine intent
McDermott confuses all the time. In fact that is his stock in trade.
young people are vulnerable to “confusion” regarding sex and their own sexuality in general. Now throw into the mix a group of degenerates with agendas [LGBT lobby] and what you truly have is child abuse. Children as young a 10 -11 yrs old are being prompted to question their “gender Identity” and to make choices at young ages that could affect them for a lifetime. Adults who are experimenting with the minds and souls of these young people are an abomination; they are in your child’s school [and some churches] as we speak.
Normal development demonstrates that young people can be in their twenties before they reach maturity regarding sexuality. That is why teen age marriage can be such a bad decision. Confusion caused by adults, who themselves are among those with disorders, can place a child on a life long path of destruction. Clearly, those in the gay lobby have no compunction when it comes to using children to advance their agenda.
Psychiatric help for these children, who have been terribly abused by agenda driven adults, either directly or through propaganda, should be ordered, not outlawed!
Conversion therapy IS child abuse.
indoctrination of innocent young minds to believe that they are “gay” prior to a time in adulthood when sexual identification is stabilized is more than abuse; it is vile treachery. It is the ugly mind-washing of healthy young people, causing them great harm. It demonstrates the depth of depravity to which the LGBT abusers will stoop to victimize children. The perpetrators should be punished. Any parent’s wish to seek help for these young victims should be honored.
This is horrible. This evil president continues acting unAmerican. I hope that people fight his agenda. May God empower us to protect parental rights especially from people with moral convictions.
He can’t ban an adult from seeking such treatment on his/her own initiative. I’ll state right now that if any parent of a minor student came to me regarding such advice, I would direct them as best I could. Unjust laws do not bind in conscience.
This article confuses a lot of issues, only one of which is that the bans that we are talking about are enforceable against licensed medical and psychological professionals, not against wither ministers or parents. I can see why you might think it is a ban against what you as a parent can do, but no law so far passed and none contemplated would make parental actions illegal.
Professionals in the Medical Field should not be banned from helping their patients.
Since when does OBAMA think he knows more than Medical Professionals?
Talk about Government interference ! And promoting his own agenda !
Conversion therapy has not caused any suicides.
However turning to God for assistance is always best.
It will probably take someone doing ‘Jail Time 4 Thought Crime’ to fully extend the boundaries of the ‘law’ – as passed by a legislative body itself unfit to pass gas and a turkey baster creationist ‘justice’ system that dispenses virtually anything but justice – in to an Absolute and Total Pandering Mandate.
Right now – It Appears – that Ministers and others can still ‘Counsel’ individuals who want to leave the nightmare and move in to the light, but actually taking any monetary compensation for the work done seems beyond the pale.
The next step of the Tolerance Gaystapo will be to Ban Volunteer / Ministerial Assistance to those afflicted with SSAD (same sex attraction disorder) and the host of ‘Gilbert’ issues associated with destroying the hated ‘heater-patriarchy’. This will become Thought / Hate Crimes under laws like the Matthew Sheperd / James Bird act – and holding out the Notion that there can be Relief from being ‘light hearted and gaily happy’ will be seen as cruelty worse than torture and a horrid insult to Administration subsidized Bio-Terrorist / Election Fraudster Dan ‘The Savage Lickspittle’ and his “Frothy Mix” of Misandrists.
Can’t do that now – as The Savage Lickspittle (known for his falsely registering as a Republican in Iowa and stalking the Bauer campaign as a volunteer trying to spread his physical illness via germ warfare against the Candidate & Staff) – is due for an ABC / Disney situation comedy, Kind of like Two and a Half Men, Only.
Dear Readers & Loyal Lurkers – I would like to apologize for the ms.spelled term above, but twarn’t my fault gosh-darn it – it was that durn system Spool Chucker…
Er. Um, Uh, ‘Spell-Checker’ I mean. Ahem.
The term above ‘Heater-Patriarchy’ is Incorrect, although I can think of any number of radical gender feminists who would gaily torch the whole Church – expecting to be the ones to rise from the ashes in control like the Twysted Systers of Indulgence after a roast at the Phoenix club.
Anywayyyyyy… The Correct (if this board will not alter it before posting) statement is that the Twysted Systers of Indulgence want to Destroy the Hated “HETERO” – “PATRIARCHY” – Also known as non feminist males and their ilk.
Hope that clears up any confusion – about something this age of Abomination makes Absolutely Clear – a commitment to Fundamentally Transforming whatever they can in to a land of MISANDRY – Hatred of Men & Boys, Masculinity & Normal Heterosexuality.
Obama will give a bad name to his countries and races.
Nothing surprising coming from the ungodly Obama and his evil administration. What else can be expected from the Democratic Party? Their platform is based on promoting homosexuality and abortions and contraception.
It just seems to me that commenting on therapy is above the POTUS pay grade. No? This is what happens when people get all weak at the knees and decide to elect an unqualified community organizer to the highest office in the land. God forgive my fellow Catholics for drinking the Kool Aid.
Sodomy is a disease. In order to cure the person from it, there must be therapy. For the evil emperor Obama to interfere or to make such therapy illegal is horrible. Yet, as I have written before, it was Catholics and bishops who voted for this mini anti Christ. Toyota had a saying, ‘You asked for it, you got it’. Well, the Church got the devilish monster it asked for.
I don’t often completely agree with Father Karl. This time i’m with him 100%!!!
The Catholics—and their bishops—who supported Obama got exactly what they deserved. Will that enlighten them for the 2016 election? Not a chance.
Sodomy is an act, a grave sin, not a disease. It is an action that a person chooses. Homosexuality is not a sin. The Church has never taught that homosexuality is a disease.
This is the Age of Perversion. A demon is loose on us. Pray for spiritual immunity. Ninevah be praised.
The goofy, liberal President, has clearly overstepped his bounds, in support of a medical issue which he knows nothing about! This is an ignorantly politicized medical issue! Medical experts need to regulate their fields, and forbid “quacks” to practice!! First of all– for the LGBT patients– they have an ABNORMAL medical condition! Next– can these abnormal conditions be cured, or at least, helped?? If science has no answer– BE HONEST!! The patient must learn to live with their condition, or disability— on a realistic basis!! How about autism, mental retardation, Alzheimer’s– etc.?? No cure?? O.K.!! It is JUST FINE– to have a MEDICAL CONDITION– and it should be ACCURATELY EXPLAINED, by medical science!! Not LIED about– as if it were either a “NORMAL” condition (a false “variation of gender or sexuality”) —- or a “curable” medical condition, with “quack” remedies promising fake, misleading “cures!!” If you are LGBT– it is not the end of the world! God can help you learn to live with your condition, or disability! Medical science owes LGBT patients complete HONESTY!!
All sin is a disease. Some diseases are worse than others, just as mortal sin is more damaging to the soul than venial sin. The sacrament of Penance is like penicillin which destroys the sin. But unlike penicillin, which can weaken a person’s immune system, the reception of the sacraments makes us spiritually stronger. Living a life of grace is similar to being sanitary in all our endeavors. When you are clean, wash yourself often, and avoid germs, you are healthy. If you eat rotten or spoiled food, you get poisoned, then sick, and then maybe, without seeing a doctor or taking the proper medication, you die. Grace, both actual and sacramental, can shield us from sin, and it makes our soul spiritually healthy. Grace is also necessary in order to get to Heaven.
I so appreciate Fr. Karl’s post! I recall learning this same thing, many years ago! Also, we were taught, that God’s graces (sanctifying grace, from the Sacraments, as well as actual grace) builds up, in a good, devout, practicing Catholic– like a “spiritual bank,” and is always there to call upon, in time of need! The saints had HUGE reserves of graces! They could bear many trials, and help those around them, too! Healing graces often flowed easily from the saints, from this HUGE reserve of their “spiritual banks!” You take your “spiritual bank” also, with you, to Heaven, after death!! You can help other struggling souls, in this life, and beyond— perhaps without even knowing it! Christ-like people bring God’s goodness, love, and healing graces, to all around them! A serious, practicing Catholic, is “in the world, but not of it!” He or she must live in the corrupt, physical world, until death– and then, remaining in Christ throughout life– can thus go to one’s true heavenly home, at death!
I also appreciate Father Karl’s charitable post. Father Karl’s words and you’re beautiful supportive post are clear evidence of the faith that has been passed down for generations. Father Karl is right “all sin is a dis-ease” of the soul and the mind which affects the body. We now have johnny on the spot choirs of Catholics who are more concerned with protecting by enabling us wretched sinners, (who ARE in need of God’s “amazing grace”) than a willingness to FIRST serve Almighty God like Father Karl did by addressing the truth about even a mental disorder that even has many in our society encouraging acts of sodomy.
I recently watched a Catholic Mass on television and the Catholic choir was singing the Protestant hymn, ‘Amazing Grace’. This choir had also decided to jump in and change the meaning and words “that saved a wretch like me” to “that saved and set us free.” There has been a great push to remove the idea of personal sin, and personal accountability for being a sinful wretch. Not only have we turned to using many Protestant hymns, Protestant terminologies, Protestant customs at Mass, not to mention buying cold and sterile looking Protestant churches…..We now have Catholics choirs on television who are also choosing to go Protestant-lite and remove the word “wretch’ because it sounds just too truthful, thus judgmental. Thank you Father Karl for truly caring about us “wretches” who are most in need of God’s mercy and God’s graces. Thank you too Linda Maria!
To the post of Catherine– well, I will add something! I complained a great deal, along with many others, while singing in a well-known, semi-professional Catholic choir that sang serious Church music, for Mass, at a church in San Francisco. When I naively complained to the pastor, thinking he would immediately fix this horrible situation– he was a big surprise! Right in church– in front of me, and the Blessed Sacrament, in the beautiful Choir Stalls– he exclaimed to the Choir and to everyone present– that everyone may do as they please, there is no such thing as a sin, it is all a personal and relative concept– and he was completely supportive of them all! I then genuflected to Christ in the Blessed Sacrament, all dressed up in my Sunday best– and walked out! For good! I walked out, right in the middle of a sentence of the pastor, when he was scolding me, using foul language, telling me I was horrible, for my complaint! And I just said, “NO!” strongly, and genuflected, and walked out!!
Catherine- I will now tell you what I was complaining about, in this choir! I did not last long, with them! Well– as it turned out, the Director was gay, and a “bad Catholic!” He presented his gay lover to us, and he also went to Communion all the time! (Shortly after I left this church, he, too, left– within a month!) And the cantor, a non-Catholic, described herself as a “lesbian, activist feminist, who hated Christ, because He was a Man!” (Can you believe that??) She was very temperamental, and made the choir change all the male pronouns in the sacred music, to female pronouns!! She and all the other “LGBTs” had the highest paid or volunteer positions in the parish, I found out– and they would even kiss their lovers on the lips, and used horrible profanity, anytime, in church, or in the Sacristy!! MADE ME SICK!! This horrible experience was many years ago– but I shall NEVER return to this beautiful, but DESECRATED church!!
Thank you, Linda Maria, for speaking up and posting your experience, but mostly for enduring the suffering you did.
God bless you!
Catherine– I will add one last thing. The pastor of this bad San Francisco church, is no longer there! Many choir members also left after I did. And the financial support also mysteriously, suddenly, ran very low— so they could no longer pay some of the professional singers– and they left, shortly after I did! I have no idea, as to what this church may be like, today, as I left it in 2002!! But my heart still hurts too much!! I do not think I shall ever return, to find out if things have changed, and if the church (which is very beautiful) — may now be a truly Catholic church, truly following Jesus Christ!! This church is run by a “wayward” religious order, that sadly needs corrections!!
Well, I will add one, last sad thing, to my replies, to the post of Catherine. On the day I left this choir– we were in the church, preparing for a special concert, dedicated to the Blessed Mother, for the upcoming Oct. 7th Feast of the Holy Rosary. A very, very, very sad day!!
Thank you for you’re most beautiful love for Jesus and others. I am so very sorry that you experienced such an extremely scarring betrayal. Yes, these ugly shocking events scar and hurt souls very deeply. Our Lord knows this. What you described is diabolical and some might completely lose their faith after witnessing such a vile and sickening experience but thankfully Linda Maria you had the foundation to know that this was evil. I understand what you mean when you said that you naively complained to the pastor. You at that particular time had an expected level of trust and good faith that this pastor would do the right thing. He didn’t though and as evidenced by the horrific sex abuse scandals there have been many within the Church who have followed that same pattern of betrayal. Linda Maria, You are right. The day you genuflected in front of Jesus in the Tabernacle and walked out of that church was truly a sad, sad, day. Our Lord a willing prisoner of Supreme Love for mankind residing in that Tabernacle in that beautiful church in San Francisco, as well as all of the Tabernacles in the world, was united with YOU as you too suffered at the hands of those who should have shown the most loyalty to Jesus.
I am not surprised to hear that this took place while preparing for a special concert for Our Lady and the Feast of the Holy Rosary. A while back, I spoke on the telephone with an M.D. in Phoenix who stopped going to Mass because of experiencing very similar things that you described. This M.D. also said that some very destructive fires had been deliberately set inside some of the very beautiful churches in Arizona and that these mysteriously set fires always took place close to a important Feast day of Our Lady.
“I will put enmities between thee and the woman, and thy seed and her seed:she shall crush thy head, and thou shall lie in wait for her heel.”
Dana’s recent post quoting St. Basil applies. This is ALL the more reason why faithful Catholics should work together and love one another by encouraging clarity and unity. The devil must have been so pleased when this good Catholic M.D. and so many others stopped attending Mass to receive the sacraments because of the many evils that have taken place in the House of God.
Catherine– I am an Arizona native! The Diocese of Phoenix now has an excellent bishop, Bishop Olmsted! There are some very good Catholic parishes and programs of all types, in this Diocese! I wonder if this doctor could go and see a good, faithful priest, to help him? Also, there is a big outreach to fallen-away Catholics, by the Diocese– plus, the “Catholics Come Home” program! I am so sorry, for the arson attacks, at some of the churches! How horrible! Also– the previous Phoenix bishop, was a horrible criminal– perhaps this poor doctor was hurt by an event, regarding him! I am so sorry! We should keep this doctor in our prayers– we should pray that he will not only “come home” to the Church– but also, become a devout Catholic pro-life doctor, practicing medicine correctly!!
Thank you Linda Maria for you’re response. Bishop Olmsted IS an excellent bishop. We would have loved to have received him here in L.A. or Orange County. Let’s keep this good doctor in our prayers because the issue was bad clergy, active homosexuality, money taken from parishioners to fund personal sinful lifestyles. This doctor saw the rot first hand and he gave up because he received no help from the previous bishop. A friend recently sent me the link below and this shows the very accelerated push to normalize homosexuality as just another alternative way of living. All sinners are welcome in the Catholic Church. It is sinful actions that are not condoned or welcomed. To say that “everyone” is not welcome including homosexuals is a big fat bullying lie. Perhaps Michael Savage can address these internal bullies who are lying about not being welcomed and trying to change Church teaching regarding the acceptance of homosexual acts and same sex marriage. The ongoing problem with homosexual clergy has NEVER been properly addressed by those in authority and now we have seminarians openly touting their objective disorder. A previous spokesperson for our diocese told my friend. “If they removed all of the homosexuals then there would only be a few priests left.” This is why Rome said that they were waiting for the faithful laity to speak up. Look what the unfaithful laity are doing to Archbishop Cordileone? This disobedience has been fostered from within and “the wall” will not be broken down until it is addressed from within or by a terrible chastisement as Our Lady of Akita and Our Lady of Fatima warned.
Priest in training comes out as gay.
I will add one more thing, to my reply to the excellent post, of Fr. Karl. Many long years ago– we were accurately taught– that correct preparation and reception of Holy Communion, does, in fact, result in remission of venial sins, and adds protection against all future inclinations to sin!
Shouldn’t the government crack down on quack medical practice? It has been proven time after time, except to those who do not believe the climate is changing, that this kind of psych is a fraud. This is not about religion, anti-religion or anything of the sort. It is about science. All legitimate scientific groups agree that this is junk. It is about time we shut these places down.
Yes, Bob One, the government should crack down on quack medical practices — starting with sex change operations on people who do not have any physical deformities from birth. And it is child abuse when done on children. One cannot turn a person with male DNA into a woman, nor can a person with female DNA be turned into a man.
Almost all cases of homosexuality are psychological (mental).
There has been zero proven cases that are of medical (biological) or genetic origin.
Regarding the Mortal Sins of: Homosexual Acts, Fornication and Adultery – they are all CHOSEN acts.
When a human takes little trouble to find out what is true and good,
or when conscience is by degrees almost blinded through the habit of committing sin,
in such cases, the person is culpable for the evil he commits.
MAC, there is zero evidence to support your claim that homosexuality is “mental”. None. On the other hand, there is a lot of evidence that homosexuality has its origins in biological and possibly epigenetic causes. For a very thorough, if slightly dated examination of all the actual data, you might pick up Simon LeVay’s book “Gay Straight and the Reason Why”.
YFC, please provide links directly from an official MEDICAL / SCIENTIFIC web site that PROVES beyond a shadow of a doubt that homosexuality is biological, genetic or from epigenetic causes.
There is NOTHING credible/scientific to support your point of view.
The US Center for Disease Control and other official medical sources have clearly been unable to find the statements you support.
You are supporting junk science that even most quacks do not support anymore.
If homosexual were medical or genetic, we could work towards a CURE.
Don’t you agree ? !
Homosexuality is purely “MENTAL” – a desire.
Same Sex Attraction is merely a “TEMPTATION”.
And most importantly “HOMOSEXUAL ACTS” are a “CHOICE”.
PETE as I said, a good book that reviews a lot of the data, and proves that your statement that there is no scientific evidence of the biological nature of homosexuality. The book is available on Amazon, it is written by Simon LeVay and it is called “Gay Straight and the Reason Why”. Have you read it? I have a feeling not otherwise you wouldn’t make such sweeping statements.
While you await for the book to arrive, you might want to watch the six part documentary on youtube beginning with: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LFeXwKnCUNI
YFC – All ACTIONS are a CHOICE.
This includes all Mortal Sins including but not limited to Homosexual Acts, Fornication, and Adultery.
People can choose to sin or not to sin.
– – – – –
Don’t look for excuses for free will sexual ACTS.
I hope you are not implying that homosexual persons are merely animals who can not control themselves.
There is no definitive study that proves your point beyond a shadow of a doubt. If that were the case, the medical community would work for a CURE for homosexuality, such as drugs to offset medical problems.
QUOTE: ” LeVay’s study (that you sited) could be interpreted as suggesting that the region could have a biological substrate in sexual orientation, but that alone does not signify that the size of INAH-3 as a sole cause or consequence of an individual’s sexual orientation.
For instance, LeVay himself cited possibilities that could account for this phenomenon, including changes in hormonal exposure or sensitivity during early development, or that the brain region CHANGED IN RESPONSE TO THE BEHAVIOR and was NOT the cause of it, or that there exists some unidentified confound which both changes the anatomy of the brain and influences sexual behavior, meaning the correlation seen in the INAH-3 is NOT causal. ” UNQUOTE.
Next time read the study, rather than picking and choosing certain sentences, and YouTube is not the place for accurate/complete scientific information.
So MIKE, I see you did not read the book at all, but instead went to wikipedia. And not even an appropriate wikipedia article, you went to the one about one brain difference that Simon LeVay himself found decades and decades ago. The book I sent you to is a review book of the ENTIRe literature on the subject. How can you demand evidence, then when I send you to where you can find the evidence, you don’t even go there?
I have never implied that people are not in control of their actions, including gay people. That was not the question we were discussing, was it. The question was whether there is a biological or genetic basis for homosexuality. So, if you want an answer to a question, stick to the question you asked, please don’t substitute another question in order to try to get out from being wrong. Now, please go read LeVay’s book, Gay Straight and the Reason Why. And go watch those videos too.
BobOne, all legitimate scientific groups do not agree. However, only licensed medical professionals should be able to practice in the mental field. The Federal government has no business interfering with the health of individuals.
On a different topic – – – – Don’t forget there are those in the medical field who OBAMA actively SUPPORTS who believe in dismemberment and chemical burning of innocent human beings through abortion.
Gender, like Race is an immutable inherited condition and there are only two (genetic / gestational birth defects notwithstanding) – Male (XY) & Female (XX) and All Children have one each as their Biological Parents, regardless of who provides child care.
The Choice to engage in Homosex Behaviors can have different triggers, but as studies with Identical (maternal) Twins show – it is a Choice and Not Inherent. Funny thing though, according to the Thought Police one can change gender and not change the gender they are attracted to – like a Man attracted ti Women who abuses hormones and surgery to mimic a Womyn – who is nonetheless still attracted to Women.
So – You Can’t change your ‘orientation’ although you can change your ‘gender’ – provided it serves a propaganda purpose.
BTW – The most insightful discussion of a Prime Motivator for homo-anal coprophile behavior was given by activist / journalist Tammy Bruce from her book “The Death of Right and Wrong”:
Almost without exception, the gay men I know (and that’s too many to count) have a story of some kind of sexual trauma or abuse in their childhood – molestation by a parent or an authority figure, or seduction as an adolescent at the hands of an adult.
The gay community must face the truth and see the sexual molestation of an adolescent for the abuse it is, instead of the “coming-of-age” experience many regard it as being.
Until then, the Gay Elite will continue to promote a culture of alcohol and drug abuse, sexual promiscuity, and suicide by AIDS.
What is a maternal twin? Is that somehow different from a paternal twin? Are you speaking about science?
I know of several “gay” older Catholic men, who grew up in big families, with good Catholic parents, who got themselves launched into good careers early, were very responsible, abided by Church teachings, and have led successful, celibate, responsible, mature adult lives!! Each of their siblings have all had problems of their own, to deal with, as we all do!! The key is: MATURITY and RESPONSIBILITY!! Their Catholic parents all set good examples, of how to face and deal maturely, and successfully, with Life’s problems. Earth is NOT meant to be a “false Paradise,” to satisfy immature human “wants” and “needs,” nor to obtain “earthly justice,” for oneself, all the time! Impossible! You will become a saint, for being responsible, mature, and obedient to God, in hard times! That’s the way it was meant to be! Heaven awaits, with eternal, beautiful life, with Almighty God–for the faithful, obedient, courageous soul! In Heaven, all souls are alike, before God!
Unfortunately, many Catholic Parents today have never been taught the Doctrine of our Faith completely and accurately.
They have never been encouraged to read both the Bible and the “Catechism of the Catholic Church, second edition” at home.
Therefore they can not pass on to their children what they do not know or answer “why”.
Heaven and Hell is for Eternity, not merely a few earthly years.
We must pray to do God’s will, not our own.
If we repent of our sins with a resolution not to commit those sins again, we can spend eternity in Heaven.
As long as we breathe it is not too late to repent even if our sins be as scarlet.
However, JESUS said that MANY will not be Saved. Mt &:13-14; Lk 13:23-28.
This means that like Judas Iscariot, they did not repent before death.
Our actions are free will choices. The decision is ours.
HOGWASH MR. PRESIDENT!!
I any man or woman currently embroiled in the gay or lesbian lifestyle would like to try and leave this lifestyle, they should be free to pursue counseling/therapy designed to help them become heterosexual. We need good therapists with expertise in this field, ready to provide assistance whenever this help is requested.
Barack Hussein Obama—A Legacy of Desecration
Barry Soetoro or Barack Hussein Obama, or whomever this obscure character is, I chose to call him out on everything he has done to destroy our nation
By Obie Usategui
For the past seven years, maybe a little more, since back at the time when the 2008 presidential elections were reaching their peak of political controversy upon the unsightly possibility that a quisling candidate with a dubious pedigree by the name of Barack Hussein Obama, threatened to become the next president of the United States of America,
I forewarned the world, especially the American people, of the magnanimous menace this enigmatic man represented to all of us and to the world.
In my article “The Beginning of the End”, written in October 2008, followed by my book bearing the same name, and many other articles written in the last seven years, I have vigorously tried to reach out to every American and every free citizen of the world, pleading for everyone to open their eyes to the clear and present dangers that lied ahead embodied in the persona of this Barack Obama character.
