Johns Hopkins Psychiatrist: Transgender is a Mental Disorder and Sex Change Biologically Impossible

paul_r_mchugh_md2

Our Left Wing government is attempting to push transgenderism down our throats; making those of us who do not accept this aberrant behavior as normal, ‘transgenderphobes.’   Now, a top psychiatrist from Johns Hopkins is telling us the truth about what he terms is a mental disorder.

From CNSnews.com

Dr. Paul R. McHugh, the former psychiatrist-in-chief for Johns Hopkins Hospital and its current Distinguished Service Professor of Psychiatry, said that transgenderism is a “mental disorder” that merits treatment, that sex change is “biologically impossible,” and that people who promote sexual reassignment surgery are collaborating with and promoting a mental disorder.

Dr. McHugh, the author of six books and at least 125 peer-reviewed medical articles, made his remarks in a recent commentary in the Wall Street Journal, where he explained that transgender surgery is not the solution for people who suffer a “disorder of ‘assumption’” – the notion that their maleness or femaleness is different than what nature assigned to them biologically. – source

Actually, it doesn’t take a famous psychiatrist to make us believe what we already knew.  God creates us, male and female.  If we accept transgenderism, then where does it end?  I could wake up and say “Today, I feel like a black woman.” Would that give me the right to join the NAACP and attend their meetings?  Or tomorrow I could feel like a 6 year old boy. Would that give me the right to register at my local school as a first grade boy?

He also reported on a new study showing that the suicide rate among transgendered people who had reassignment surgery is 20 times higher than the suicide rate among non-transgender people. Dr. McHugh further noted studies from Vanderbilt University and London’s Portman Clinic of children who had expressed transgender feelings but for whom, over time, 70%-80% “spontaneously lost those feelings.”

While the Obama administration, Hollywood, and major media such as Time magazine promote transgenderism as normal, said Dr. McHugh, these “policy makers and the media are doing no favors either to the public or the transgendered by treating their confusions as a right in need of defending rather than as a mental disorder that deserves understanding, treatment and prevention.” – source

These people are 20 times more likely to attempt suicide!  And 70 – 80% of children who expressed transgender feelings, “spontaneously lost those feelings.” For our government and the media to be pushing this “mental disorder” is wrong on so many levels!

I’ve told the story in other articles that when I was a young girl, I preferred playing football with the neighborhood boys, over playing with dolls. As a matter of fact, I was the quarterback. This went on for many years. I was good!  Why shouldn’t I want to play?  But I never wondered if I should have been a boy.  As a matter of fact, as I grew to be a teenager, I discovered that I was really a girly girl – I loved feminine clothes and looking pretty.  To this day I love tossing the football around.  My husband is astounded at the long spiral passes I throw to him!

More from the article:

“This intensely felt sense of being transgendered constitutes a mental disorder in two respects. The first is that the idea of sex misalignment is simply mistaken – it does not correspond with physical reality. The second is that it can lead to grim psychological outcomes.”

The transgendered person’s disorder, said Dr. McHugh, is in the person’s “assumption” that they are different than the physical reality of their body, their maleness or femaleness, as assigned by nature. It is a disorder similar to a “dangerously thin” person suffering anorexia who looks in the mirror and thinks they are “overweight,” said McHugh. source 

The comparison of a “transgender”  to an anorexic person is the best analogy I have ever read. I had a cousin who had anorexia. She weighed less than 80 lbs, but when she looked in the mirror she felt overweight. She died of this mental disorder which became a physical disorder.  This is distorted thinking and so is transgenderism.

More from the CNSnews piece:

The pro-transgender advocates do not want to know, said McHugh, that studies show between 70% and 80% of children who express transgender feelings “spontaneously lose those feelings” over time. Also, for those who had sexual reassignment surgery, most said they were “satisfied” with the operation “but their subsequent psycho-social adjustments were no better than those who didn’t have the surgery.”

“And so at Hopkins we stopped doing sex-reassignment surgery, since producing a ‘satisfied’ but still troubled patient seemed an inadequate reason for surgically amputating normal organs,” said Dr. McHugh.

The former Johns Hopkins chief of psychiatry also warned against enabling or encouraging certain subgroups of the transgendered, such as young people “susceptible to suggestion from ‘everything is normal’ sex education,” and the schools’ “diversity counselors” who, like “cult leaders,” may “encourage these young people to distance themselves from their families and offer advice on rebutting arguments against having transgender surgery.” -source

If your child is in public school, they are being taught and sometimes encouraged to explore transgender feelings!  Parents – you MUST speak to your children about this and make it clear to them that the people at school think they are doing right; but that they are misinformed, and that God made them a boy or a girl, and that’s what they are!

The article goes on:

Dr. McHugh also reported that there are “misguided doctors” who, working with very young children who seem to imitate the opposite sex, will administer “puberty-delaying hormones to render later sex-change surgeries less onerous – even though the drugs stunt the children’s growth and risk causing sterility.”

Such action comes “close to child abuse,” said Dr. McHugh, given that close to 80% of those kids will “abandon their confusion and grow naturally into adult life if untreated ….”

“’Sex change’ is biologically impossible,” said McHugh. “People who undergo sex-reassignment surgery do not change from men to women or vice versa. Rather, they become feminized men or masculinized women. Claiming that this is civil-rights matter and encouraging surgical intervention is in reality to collaborate with and promote a mental disorder.” – source

“So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them. And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply” (Genesis 1:27-28a).

The devil is called the author of confusion and the father of lies.  And so he is.

MARANATHA!

Pope Francis: Christian Evangelism Same As Muslim Jihad

pope and islam2

If anyone doubts that this pope is satanically inspired or possessed, they need only to read his latest outrageous comparisons between Christianity and Islam.

From Breakingisraelinews.com

“Islam and Christianity share the “same idea of conquest”, and for that reason, Islam should not be viewed as a threat, said Pope Francis in a newspaper interview this week.

“It is true that the idea of conquest is inherent in the soul of Islam,” he conceded to the French Catholic newspaper La Croix. “However, it is also possible to interpret the objective in Matthew’s Gospel, where Jesus sends his disciples to all nations, in terms of the same idea of conquest.”

Ostensibly, the Pope was drawing a parallel between the Islamic “conquest” known as jihad, a holy war or struggle waged against infidels, and Christian missionizing.

The comparison was part of a larger conversation about the increasingly desperate refugee crisis currently facing Europe. Pope Francis has been an outspoken voice on the issue of Arab refugees who seek asylum, encouraging governments to take in migrants and “integrate” them into western societies despite widespread concerns that the largely Muslim populations might harbor extremist or terrorist elements. – source

IS HE SERIOUS??

When is the last time anyone has seen a Christian missionary with a bomb strapped to him, walking through a crowded marketplace?  To compare jihad to evangelism is the most absurd thing that has proceeded from the mouth of Pope Francis – and he has uttered some doozies.  This one takes the cake.

Breakingisraelnews.com goes on:

Francis has repeatedly argued in favor of coexistence, peace, and tolerance in all areas of life but especially towards Muslims. He set his own powerful example last month when he brought a dozen refugees from the Greek island of Lesbos back to Rome with him after a diplomatic visit.

The Pontiff said that the Western attempt to “export” democracy to Arab countries is partly to blame for the collapse of central control and rise in Islamic extremism in Middle Eastern states.  – source  (Emphasis mine)

Coexistence – REALLY?

How can anyone coexist with terrorists?  That’s absolute crazy talk.  Jihadists want to take over your countries. They don’t want to assimilate. They want sharia law to supersede the existing government. They will kill you in a heartbeat.  You are an infidel to them.

Is this pope not thinking clearly, or is every word he speaks calculated?  Perhaps he is crazy like a fox?

“Ultimately, coexistence between Christians and Muslims is still possible,” the Pope insisted.

The key is integration, he stated. “The worst form of welcome is to ‘ghettoize’ [the migrants]. On the contrary, it’s necessary to integrate them,” he said. He pointed to the example of the perpetrators of Belgium’s horrific terror attack, saying that though they were naturalized Belgian citizens and children of migrants, they “grew up in a ghetto.” – source  (Emphasis mine)

Muslims do NOT want to integrate or assimilate into other societies. They want to take over. Sometimes they use violence, sometimes they take over by overtaking the population and then they have the votes needed to come into power. Then sharia law is instated.

Christianity and the Great Commission

The final words of Jesus Christ

 “And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth. Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:  Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen” (Matthew 28:18-20).

How the pope can compare evangelism to jihad is beyond me.  Jesus taught to love our neighbors as ourselves. He taught his disciples to turn the other cheek. He commanded them to love even their enemies.

These comments by Pope Francis prove that the Catholic Church (Vatican) is as far from the Word of God as anyone can be.  Nothing that Pope Francis teaches even resembles the Words of our Lord and Savior.

Brethren, these days are so terribly wicked.  We pray that the Lord will come soon to rapture us, and take us to be with him forever.  We must keep focused on the Lord and His Word.  We should be immersed in the Word everyday until He comes.

“For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord. Wherefore comfort one another with these words” (1 Thessalonians 4:16-18).
