I have recently rejoined ‘NowTheEndBegins’ as Geoff Grider’s feature writer. I am glad to be back after so many years. I believe that the Lord orchestrated this for His own reasons, and perhaps one of those reasons is that we are so very close to the end.
The evil which permeates our society makes Scripture like this passage truly come to life:
“For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places” (Ephesians 6:12) KJV
Geoff updated a piece I wrote 4 years ago about pedophilia, and how the Left is doing their best to decriminalize this offense. The new narrative is that this perversion is not a choice, so of course it cannot be a crime. I always knew that after homosexuality was accepted and embraced as normal – even to the point of the SCOTUS redefining marriage to be the union of any two people; that pedophilia would be close behind.
But this is a crime against children!
Yes, it certainly is. And so is abortion. This satanic wickedness is all around us. What was once considered grievous sins and crimes, are now the new normal. We are making great strides in saving babies from abortion. There are now “heartbeat bills” and many killing mills are shutting down. But the Left seem to always find a way, don’t they?
When I came across this article, I did a double take. I was sure that I had misread it.
Then I realized that this was just another step in making pedophilia “normal and natural.” You may ask why educators would feel the need to do this. As sick as this is, the reality of it is that once sharia law replaces the laws of our land, the Left are making sure that pedophilia is regarded as a sexual orientation which will be protected by our courts.
The reader may think that I am referring to the very young girls who are wedded to Muslim men even as old as in their 60’s. But actually, it is accepted in Islam for men to “pleasure” themselves with babies. Yes, you read that correctly, and yes, it is disgusting and criminal.
The question is this: How long can we keep pedophilia a crime in America?
Sexuality textbook suggests students take ‘field trip’ to preschools to observe potential ‘sexual interactions’
Unclear if schools, parents would be notified of visit
A college textbook that explores human sexuality suggests that instructors take their students on “field trips” to local preschools and elementary schools to observe possible “sexual interactions” between students there.
The textbook is part of a course titled “Psychology and Sexual Behavior” offered at the University of North Texas. That course made headlines last week when the news website Big League Politics reported on it, specifically what appeared to be a presentation in the course exploring “sexual pleasure and response in infants.”
Big League Politics reported that it obtained a copy of a “lesson plan” from the course instructor. That document appears to be drawn from the 13th edition of Our Sexuality, listed as the course textbook on the class’s syllabus.
One section of the document, titled “Teaching Ideas,” suggests that instructors take students on a “field trip” to observe children possibly engaging in “sexual interactions” during recess hours:
Take the class to a local elementary school playground, or ask permission for a few of your students to attend various school playgrounds, preschools, or daycare centers during recess to observe behaviors of children. Ask students to note interactions between same-sex and mixed-sex groups. Which group was more frequent? Which behaviors were most frequent? What kind of touching did children engage in? What about teasing behaviors? Were there any overtly sexual interactions? What was the age range of the children being observed? Have students write a report comparing their observations with information in the text.
The lesson plan does not appear to suggest that instructors notify elementary schools before showing up at them, though it does direct instructors to “ask permission for a few … students to attend various school playgrounds, preschools, or daycare centers.”
Book’s editor says she wants the activity removed
Robert Crook, one of the textbook’s editors, passed away several years ago. Karla Baur, listed as one of the editors of the textbook’s 13th edition, told The College Fix that neither she nor Crooks had a hand in writing the instructor’s guide of the textbook.
“[The publisher] typically contracts out that part of a revision. From my perspective, this ‘field trip’ seems rather odd, potentially problematic and fruitless. I’m not aware of any professors having assigned it – but I’d certainly be interested in students’ reactions to the proposal!” Baur wrote.
Baur said she retired from editing the book after the 13th edition was published. She directed The Fix to Laura Widman, the book’s current editor and a professor at N.C. State. Reached via email, Widman told The Fix: “I can say that as an instructor I have never used that activity and I would be quite surprised if any instructor has asked their students to observe children on a playground.”
Widman told The Fix that she has requested that the activity be edited for future editions of the book. When asked if she had requested the suggestion be deleted from the book, Widman replied: “Yes, I would remove that activity altogether.”
The Fix reached out to Terry Davis, listed as the course instructor on the syllabus for “Psychology and Sexual Behavior,” to see if she has ever taken her class to any local elementary school, and if she notified the school or schools in question prior to doing so. Davis did not respond to multiple queries.
The University of North Texas’s media relations department did not respond to emails asking about the textbook. Reached via phone, a university spokeswoman directed The Fix to the school’s psychology department. A spokeswoman there said that the department did not comment on textbooks. source
Brethren, if this is being taught and explored in this Texas University, I believe that it is reasonable to assume that this is wide-spread. We know how much Jesus loves the little children and how protective over them He is:
“But whoso shall offend one of these little ones which believe in me, it were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and that he were drowned in the depth of the sea.
“Woe unto the world because of offences! for it must needs be that offences come; but woe to that man by whom the offence cometh!” (Matthew 18:6-7) KJV
Sometimes we just have to speak TRUTH no matter what it costs us. I truly believe that as the evil becomes worse (and it will) we will pay a price for speaking that which we know is good and true and right. We very well may be incarcerated for this – or worse.
It is similar to our abiding faith in our Lord Jesus. One day we may be asked to denounce Him or die. That is a scary thought, but we can NEVER denounce our faith in our Lord! If we die, then we will be in the presence of Jesus forever.
“And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell. (Matthew 10:28) KJV
Once in a while a brave soul emerges in this crazy upside-down world, and tells the TRUTH, no matter what it will cost them. One such person is Dr.Paul R. McHugh – a former Psychiatrist-in-chief at Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore, MD. Dr. McHugh wrote a paper in which he called transgenderism a mental disorder. The paper was well received and so compelling, that Johns Hopkins ceased performing any sex change surgeries.
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.
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.”
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!
“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.
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.”
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
Unfortunately, since Dr. McHugh retired, many “politically correct” doctors have vehemently disagreed with McHugh, and for the last few years Hopkins has resumed their very lucrative sex change operations.
Now, a well known and highly respected pediatric doctor is sounding the alarm about sex change procedures for children. His name is Dr. Paul Hruz and he is a pediatric endocrinologist.
He was interviewed by Laura Ingraham on Fox News recently.
Pediatric specialist warns public that child transgender therapy is very ‘harmful,’ ‘poor science’
Children are being harmed by transgender treatments, a pediatric endocrinologist told Laura Ingraham on a recent broadcast of her Fox News Channel television program.
Treatments for transgender youth are drastic and experimental, Dr. Paul Hruz said.
The associate professor of Pediatrics, Endocrinology, Cell Biology and Physiology at St. Louis’ Washington University of Medicine appeared on “The Ingraham Angle” Friday to discuss fallout from the U.S. House of Representatives’ passage of the radicalEquality Act.
The far-reaching pro-LGBT legislation among other things forces official recognition of claimed “gender identity,” along with transgender access to opposite-sex restrooms, locker rooms and dressing rooms.
Amid the implications of the radical law and continued push of so-called “gender” treatment for children suffering from gender dysphoria, Ingraham asked Hruz why the medical community is so afraid to consider the impact of hormonal treatment and surgeries for young people.
Hruz replied that the science behind gender treatment is very poor.
“It’s very important to recognize that what is being put forward with the goal of truly helping these individuals that are suffering is based on very, very poor science,” he said. “And any effort to draw attention to the poor science and the potential very negative and serious consequences of these hormonal interventions really has not been given the attention that it deserves.”
Ingraham raised the issue of implications when chemically altering a child with gender therapy, whether or not the child had been through puberty.
Hruz explained that there’s a normal developmental process in children that has them trying to come to terms with the changes in their bodies while also struggling to identify themselves in relation to their peers, all of which is normal.
But when gender treatment enters in, the natural process is disrupted, causing serious lifelong damage, when most children experiencing gender confusion eventually work through it on their own.
“One of the concerns about this particular approach to treating these individuals that have a gender identity that is not in accord with their biology is that it will actually influence how they’re able to that normal integration,” Hruz said, “and really, subject them to that need of medical intervention that has potential (for) very serious harms to their bodies throughout the rest of their life, without even considering whether there are alternative options to help them, and even recognizing that a large number of children that question their gender identity are going to, if merely left alone, are going to realign their identity with their biological sex.”
Hruz said more than a dozen studies affirm that the vast majority of children experiencing gender dysphoria cease having the condition after puberty without intervention.
The exception, he said, was when gender treatment was employed.
“One of the most concerning observations was, however,” said Hruz, “if one tries to interfere with the normal pubertal development, to stop normally-timed puberty in children, that all of the children in the small study that was done looking at the effect of that, all went on to persist in that transgendered identity, really changing that statistic drastically from the normal trajectory that we normally see.”
Ingraham pointed out that there has been explosive growth in transgender treatment centers, accompanied by big money.
Hruz said there were now more than 50 of these centers in the United States.
“And really the amazing concern about the growth of this particular approach to dealing with children that have this transgendered identity,” he said, “is to adopt a single intervention that’s based on very, very poor quality science.”
Even those advocating for this intervention for children will acknowledge that the research really has not been done to establish what the long-term effects are, he added, and already the data coming forward raises serious concerns.
“Not only in how these children are going to normally move through these developmental stages and their identity,” Hruz said, “but the effects of the hormonal treatment on the body.”
He listed fertility issues and increased risk of cardiovascular disease as being among the dangers.
“The data really is not there,” said Hruz, pointing out that there is a clouding of the difference between gender identity and the biological reality of sex.
“We know that giving hormones to individuals that is not in align with their biological sex is not the same thing as giving it to (someone) in levels that are normally present in them,” he said.
Ingraham stressed that this issue is something that must be meticulously studied because children are involved.
“These children are very much being harmed,” Hruz said. 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! God makes NO mistakes.
“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, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth” (Genesis 1:27-28) KJV
The devil is called the author of confusion and the father of lies.
THE FATHER OF LIES; THE AUTHOR OF CONFUSION AND THE ACCUSER OF THE BRETHREN BOTH DAY AND NIGHT!
Who are we speaking of? None other than the Enemy of our Souls – SATAN.
” Now the serpent was more subtil than any beast of the field which the Lord God had made. And he said unto the woman, Yea, hath God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden?” (Genesis 3:1) KJV
From the very beginning, Satan has spoken his deceptive ‘whispers’ into the ears of God’s people. And he certainly does’t need new tricks because the old ones work just fine.
IN THE WILDERNESS FROM LUKE 4
The arrogant enemy of God and of our souls even tried his twisting of Scripture with our Lord Jesus who IS God in the flesh. Jesus shut the evil one down with PURE Scripture. You see, Satan takes a little bit of truth and then twists it for his own purposes:
After the Holy Spirit led Jesus out into the wilderness, the devil tempted our Lord with his own version of Scripture:
“And the devil said unto him, If thou be the Son of God, command this stone that it be made bread” (Luke 4:3) KJV
“And Jesus answered him, saying, It is written, That man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word of God” (Luke 4:4) KJV
“And the devil said unto him, All this power will I give thee, and the glory of them: for that is delivered unto me; and to whomsoever I will I give it.
If thou therefore wilt worship me, all shall be thine” (Luke 4:6-7) KJV
“And Jesus answered and said unto him, Get thee behind me, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve” (Luke 4:8) KJV
” And he brought him to Jerusalem, and set him on a pinnacle of the temple, and said unto him, If thou be the Son of God, cast thyself down from hence:
“For it is written, He shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee:
“And in their hands they shall bear thee up, lest at any time thou dash thy foot against a stone” (Luke 4: 9-11) KJV
“And Jesus answering said unto him, It is said, Thou shalt not tempt the Lord thy God” (Genesis 4:12) KJV
SATAN’S OWN VERSION OF CHRISTIANITY
In these last days, the devil in his craftiness has created his own version of Christianity.
I can almost hear him:
” God is LOVE, so don’t believe those ‘pretend’ Christians who say that homosexuality is evil. God WANTS the practicing homosexual to be part of His church! Just look at the Sermon on the Mount. Doesn’t that convince you? A loving God would NEVER reject the lifestyle of ANYONE! Come as you are. Do not be ashamed of the life you are living. Jesus accepts you just as you are.
Do NOT believe the fake Christians who are no better than the Pharisees!” <hissssssssssssss>
And many believe the devil – every word he speaks, they take as truth.
‘For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears;
And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables” (2 Timothy 4:3-4)
The Social Justice False gospel
One of the leading voices of this movement, Rachel Held Evans, suddenly passed away at the age of 37 recently. I wrote a piece on this:
Discerning Christians will understand what the evil one has done. He has made a version of Christianity which is false. Not only that, but he has the world believing that the Social Justice Gospel is the TRUE Word of God. And the world is pointing their collective finger at US and here is what they are saying:
“The true Christians do not judge and they have compassion on the gay community. The true Christians will have gay couples serve in their churches. The true Christians are the hope of this world!”
“The “fake” Christians are HATERS! They judge others’ lifestyles and never think for themselves. They find verses in their “Bibles” with which they attempt to condemn the gay lifestyle. They do NOT represent Jesus Christ!”
Brethren, can you see and understand what is happening here? Satan’s fingerprints are all over this “Social Justice false gospel” and the world is thrilled with all of this.
The Persecution is Coming
So, now we are the ones who “HATE” and I believe that in the future we will be incarcerated in an attempt to be re-educated.
Pete Buttigieg’s Very Public Faith Is Challenging Assumptions
His tone separates him from many evangelical leaders—but in one crucial way, he might be replicating a mistake of the religious right.
The mayor of a medium-size midwestern city, Rhodes Scholar, and war veteran who is liturgically conservative and cites Saint Augustine as one of his religious influences is running for president. He’s also a Democrat. He is criticizing the current president, a Republican, for his infidelity and lack of family values. And he’s gay.
Sometimes politics unfolds differently than you might expect.
Buttigieg is challenging the assumptions of a lot of people.
Start with those in the Democratic Party. Buttigieg, an Episcopalian who studied under Sacvan Bercovitch, the renowned scholar of Puritan America, is willing to speak about God before nonreligious audiences in a way that is natural. I don’t sense that his faith is being used cynically or inauthentically; it preceded his career in politics.
“I think it’s unfortunate [the Democratic Party] has lost touch with a religious tradition that I think can help explain and relate our values,” Buttigieg told The Washington Post. “At least in my interpretation, it helps to root [in religion] a lot of what it is we do believe in, when it comes to protecting the sick and the stranger and the poor, as well as skepticism of the wealthy and the powerful and the established.”
To be sure, the reason Buttigieg is the hottest person in Democratic politics these days is because he’s viewed as reliably progressive. Most of the Democrats who are drawn to him are embracing him not because of his faith but because of his liberalism. They’re willing to indulge the former so long as it advances the latter. For many Democrats, faith is an instrumentality. Still, Buttigieg’s rise and reasonable tone should help make some members of the Democratic Party less hostile to Christianity, which as a Christian I take to be a good thing.
The challenge Buttigieg poses to many leaders of the Trump-supporting evangelical world isn’t simply in the realm of public policy; it is in his tone, his countenance, and the way he carries himself.
Buttigieg does not radiate pent-up grievances, cultural resentments, and bitterness. He’s a person of equanimity, a calming voice in a rancorous political culture. That doesn’t mean he’s right on the stands he’s taking, of course, and those things matter. (More about that later.) But I would say that the splenetic, fear-based approach of many evangelical leaders has created an opening for Buttigieg, who is their temperamental antithesis.
It is one thing for Trump’s Christian supporters to argue that his policy agenda made him preferable to Hillary Clinton. But it is an entirely different matter to never hold Trump accountable. None of Trump’s high-profile evangelical supporters speak out against his cruelty and dehumanizing style, his pathological lying and bullying manner, or his Nietzschean ethic—and in some instances they celebrate it.
Robert Jeffress, the pastor of an influential Southern Baptist mega-church in Dallas, proudly declared that he supports Trump because he wants “the meanest, toughest SOB I can find to protect this nation.” Jerry Falwell Jr., the president of one of the largest Christian universities in the world, defendsTrump on the grounds that he is “authentic, successful & down to earth.” According to Tony Perkins, the ardent Trump supporter who is president of the Family Research Council, evangelical Christians “were tired of being kicked around by Barack Obama and his leftists. And I think they are finally glad that there’s somebody on the playground that is willing to punch the bully.” (Perkins added that conservative Christians who are Trump supporters are willing to give the president a “mulligan” on his atrocious personal behavior because he’s on their side politically.)
The mayor of South Bend, on the other hand, speaks about the need for healing, about beckoning people and trying to understand the position of those with whom he disagrees. He acknowledges how disorienting the change in sexual ethics has been, particularly for the older generation, and he says he understands why people believe that the Christian faith leads them to oppose same-sex marriage, even as he hopes they encounter scripture interpreted a different way. (The best articulation of a traditional Christian view on homosexuality I am aware of is found in Richard Hays’s The Moral Vision of the New Testament. Christians who agree with Buttigieg on gay marriage need to wrestle in good faith with the case presented by Hays, just as those who disagree with Buttigieg on gay marriage need to wrestle in good faith with the case laid out by Matthew Vines in God and the Gay Christian.)
When asked by USA Today’s Kirsten Powers what advice he has for those struggling to be graceful toward those with whom we disagree, Buttigieg answered this way:
Well, I think it starts with a certain amount of humility and recognizing that how you voted doesn’t make you a good person or a bad person, and we shouldn’t think of ourselves as better human beings because of how we voted.
This is a welcome sentiment from a political leader when our politics is becoming more and more venomous, when people prefer to shout at each other rather than to reason together.
And yet, precisely on the question of religion as an instrumental good, there is real cause for concern about Mayor Pete. His insistence that “Christian faith is going to point you in a progressive direction” is a bright-red flag, and ought to worry Christians regardless of their politics.
To say that Christianity points you in a progressive direction is in effect to say that Christianity and progressivism are synonymous. They aren’t. Neither are Christianity and conservatism. Christianity stands apart from and in judgment of all political ideologies; it doesn’t lend itself to being put in neat and tidy political categories. That doesn’t mean that at any particular moment in time a Christian ethic won’t lead people of faith to more closely align with one political and philosophical movement over another. But the temptation, always, is to politicize faith in ways that ultimately are discrediting.
What Buttigieg would undoubtedly argue is that progressivism is the political ideology that does the most to care for the poor, the vulnerable, the dispossessed, and the weak. But that depends on the issue, doesn’t it?
Lady Gaga to Mike Pence: ‘You Are the Worst Representation of What It Means to Be a Christian’
Lady Gaga is not afraid to speak her mind when it comes to politics. The singer interrupted her ongoing Las Vegas residency set on Saturday to bash Vice President and his wife Karen.
“To Mike Pence, who thinks it’s acceptable that his wife works at a school that bans LGBTQ, you’re wrong. You say we should not discriminate against Christianity? You’re the worst representation of what it means to be a Christian,” Gaga, 32, told the crowd at MGM’s Park Theater.
Gaga made her comments in reference to reports that Karen is to resume teaching at a Christian school that openly discriminates against LGBTQ students.
Under a parent agreement posted on the school’s website, Immanuel can refuse admission to students who participate in, support or condone “sexual immorality, homosexual activity or bisexual activity.” The school also can refuse admission based on similar “activities of a parent or guardian” or “within a particular home.”
Pence backed his wife’s decision on the Catholic news network EWTN Thursday, saying it’s “deeply offensive to us” to “see major news organizations attacking Christian education.”
“Mrs. Pence has returned to the school where she previously taught for 12 years,” her spokeswoman, Kara Brooks said in a statement. “It’s absurd that her decision to teach art to children at a Christian school, and the school’s religious beliefs, are under attack.”
Lady Gaga identifies as a Christian, which may surprise some of her fans.
“I am a Christian woman, and what I do know about Christianity is that we bear no prejudice and everybody is welcome. So you can take all that disgrace, Mr. Pence, and can look yourself in the mirror and you’ll find it right there,” Gaga told the audience.
Gaga didn’t stop there. She also took on President Trump.
“If the (expletive) president of the United States could please put our government back,” Gaga stated. “There are people who live paycheck to paycheck and need their money.” source
In the midst of all of this insanity and evil, the only thing which keeps me sane is Jesus Christ and His Word:
“This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come.
For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy,
Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good,
Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God;
Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.” (2 Timothy 3: 1-5) KJV
We know that we are rapidly approaching the end. We know that our Lord Jesus never leaves us nor forsakes us.
We know that we will spend eternity in His presence.
Sometimes I feel like I will wake up and find that this type of child abuse was just a nightmare. Unfortunately, it’s very real and our anger at this cannot even come close to the anger of our Lord Jesus.
“But Jesus said, Suffer little children, and forbid them not, to come unto me: for of such is the kingdom of heaven” (Matthew 19:14) KJV
“And whoso shall receive one such little child in my name receiveth me.
” But whoso shall offend one of these little ones which believe in me, it were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and that he were drowned in the depth of the sea” (Matthew 18:5-6) KJV
Brethren, can you imagine how our Lord feels when He sees the emotional and physical abuse of the little children; and he sees the parents of these children being complicit – all in the name of Political Correctness?
I weep for these children. They are the innocent ones in this horrific Evil. Instead of having parents who teach them about the Lord and His Word – they have parents who are “feeding them to the lions.”
It’s bad enough that some libraries encourage little children to perch on the laps of transvestite males as they hear fables about well-adjusted homosexual families, in the so-called “Drag Queen Story Hours” featured in some communities.
But other libraries have devised another method for mental molestation of youth. Middle and high-schoolers are invited to a private “safe space” session with a garishly -dressed she-male to explore what “drag” is all about. And adults are excluded—until the public hears and cries “foul.”
It’s happening in Delaware County, Ohio, an affluent suburb north of Columbus. And taxpayers are putting up quite a fuss. A June 5 session called “Drag 101” is advertised on the teen page of the Delaware County Library website, and here’s how the announcement reads:
“Drag 101—Teen Program. Curious about the art of drag and no idea where to start? Come learn the basics with former Miss Gay Ohio America, Selena T. West! All genders welcome; drag is for everyone! Teens only, please.”
What– no parents? And why not adults? One’s suspicions are heightened immediately over any program for a 13- year-old to be unsupervised in a private space with a man who likes to dress as a woman.
And in a taxpayer-funded library, no less.
It turns out it’s the half-a-brainchild of the children’s librarian, Becky Woodruff. And now we all feel a lot better. Following the public outcry, one adult will now be allowed to accompany each student, but no other adults will be permitted in the room with the 12 to 17-year- olds they have invited to attend. What are they hiding?
At least now the library is doing background checks on the presenters, the director recently revealed. And why weren’t they doing that before public objections?
The library director, George Needham, said this on social media: “…it’s very common in our regular teen programming to use the phrase, ‘Teens only, please.’ This is because, within teen development, it’s very important that they feel like they have ownership over a safe space.”
Who made him a psychologist and does anyone want that in a librarian? NO. And he’s wrong. Parental oversight, not privacy with disordered adults, is critical during childhood and adolescence to keep kids actually safe from major life-damaging episodes as well as to protect them from predators.
Do we have to worry about predators in the library? Seems that some healthy suspicion is in order. (#LibrariesToo )
Needham went on to explain that the “teens-only phrase” is “used to deter young children or tweens from attending programs intended for a teen audience.” Why is that important? Why can’t fifteen-year-old Josh attend with his nine-year old sister?
Unless there are sleazy elements you librarians think teens will keep from their parents but little kids are more likely to blab.
And Needham continued: “Typically, parents are also encouraged to give a teen program its own space and wait in a nearby area of the library.” Parents, go away.
But I say, taxpayers, rise up.
Indeed, these folks crave private sessions with adolescents and we’ve seen this before with sex educators and others pushing slimy agendas.
“Drag 101” is part of “summer reading.” And you thought libraries were safe spaces.
The library board’s meeting on May 21 heard from members of the public speaking both against as well as for this event. Their decision? They are not canceling.
But hold on. The situation gets even shadier when one finds out that the organizer, a man who calls himself “Selena T. West,” has sexually suggestive images all over the Internet. Who is “Selena, “anyway?
If one of these teens arrives at the library, courtesy of your tax dollars, and likes the “drag” lessons, surely there will be follow-up contact, right? Are these unsupervised adults allowed to collect cell phone numbers from their private teen audience? And then what? “Come down and meet me at the pride parade!”
If a teen checks him out on the web, “Selena” sets an example that is questionable at best. Is this a public relations/publicity campaign taxpayers should be funding?
Until the recent uproar, this event had no parental notice or permission. Is the library willing to be held legally accountable for any complications as they bypass parents and endanger children? A “drag” interest and gender confusion could create serious emotional disturbances in some adolescent boys.
The outrageous promotion of depravity by this library doesn’t end with private corruption sessions. The teen page is dominated by pro-homosexual and pro-gender confusion propaganda, with an entire “LGBTQIA” section that links to many groups specializing in child endangerment: GLSEN, the Human Rights Campaign, the local “gay” youth center (open to children as young as 12 without parent knowledge), the Nationwide Children’s Hospital THRIVE program, which has only one answer to gender confusion in kids—start the dangerous drugs of “transition” ASAP; pro-homosexual legal groups like ACLU and Lambda Legal, and information trashing “conversion therapy.”
Are there no conservatives or people of faith in Delaware County? This page has not a single resource with an opposite ( aka, safe) viewpoint. They are uniformly urging minor children to go full steam ahead into the high-risk behaviors of homosexuality or gender “transition.”
When Adam comes home from Drag 101 eager to start wearing dresses and heels, where do his outraged parents go? If he implicates the library, are the country commissioners and library board willing to absorb the legal costs of a multi-million dollar lawsuit when Adam is permanently sterilized ( after he starts opposite sex hormones)?
Probably not. Maybe someone should advise the library staff and board: “Grow up, get responsible and get a real heart for children.” source
Is the reader shocked yet? Are you angered? I would definitely call what I am feeling Righteous Indignation!
This makes me want to go into our local library and find out if this is happening there. If it is, I am so tempted to go into the library during one of these Satanic sessions and tell the children “Don’t listen to this!! Jesus LOVES you and does NOT want you to learn such EVIL!!!
But I would probably be thrown into jail. You see, Christians are the Evil ones now, and child molesters are “good.”
“Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!” (Isaiah 5:20) KJV
Houston MassResistance exposes more horror: 2nd public library “Drag Queen” is a convicted child sex offender – and a transgender prostitute specializing in BDSM.
Had been greeting young children as they came to reading event.
Library’s Drag Queens belong to bigoted anti-Catholic group.
Is this what’s going on around the country?
Let me insert a thought here: As born again believers in Christ, we know that the Catholic Church is a works based cult. But these degenerate drag queens don’t know that. You know what they DO know? They know that Catholics are against Abortion! Does that give you a clue about how Satanic these people really are?
“Drag Queen Story Hour” participants pose outside of Houston Public Library for social media photo. Houston MassResistance has exposed man at left as child sex offender. Note rubber chicken – a “gay” symbol for pederasty.
Last month we reported how Houston MassResistance activists exposed a Houston Public Library “Drag Queen” as a convicted child sex offender.Now, it turns out that a second Houston Public Library Drag Queenwas convicted of multiple sexual assaults against young children, according to records uncovered by Houston MassResistance activists. The man has also written a lurid article describing his work as a transgender prostitute. And he was photographed at a Drag Queen Story Hour (DQSH) event carrying a rubber chicken – a symbol used by homosexuals to indicate a sexual preference for young boys.This man is part of the local Drag Queen group brought in to do the Story Hour” events. We now know that local group is part of a bigoted national anti-Catholic Drag Queen organization.It’s becoming clear that the outrages we’re exposing are not an anomaly, but more likely the norm – not only in Houston but probably around the country.THE SHOCKING DISCOVERY BY HOUSTONThe Houston man identified by MassResistance activists is William Travis Dees. He is a member of the “Space City Sisters” Drag Queen group. The Houston Public Library thought it appropriate to invite these unbalanced men to lead Drag Queen Story Hour readings to little children.As part of these DQSH events, Dees has served as a “greeter” for young children as they came into the library, among other roles.
William Travis Dees posts photos of himself and his “transgender” alter ego on social media using his fake name, “Liza Lott.”
According to criminal records uncovered by Houston MassResistance activists, Dees was convicted in 2004 of sex crimes against four young children (ages 4, 5, 6, and 8), was jailed, and is listed as a “high risk sex offender.” MassResistance activists have also identified numerous aliases which Dees uses for his various characters and personas.
Since Dees was 16 years old at the time of his conviction, his record is “sealed” and not posted on government sites. However, it is available from other sex-offender record sources.

Part of bigoted anti-Catholic group
The “Space City Sisters” have yet another odious distinction. Theirwebsite and social media reveal that the group is a local chapter of a national organization of cross-dressing homosexual men called the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence. The men dress as garish and hideous parodies of Catholic nuns and mock Catholicism. They are a popular feature in gay pride parades and other LGBT events across the country. They now also do DQSH readings to small children.

A transgender prostitute doing BDSM
Dees appears to be a very troubled and dysfunctional man. Houston MassResistance activists were able to verify that under his alias of Elizabeth Davidson, Dees wrote a very graphic article on an LGBT website (which included a photo of himself) describing his experiences as a transgender prostitute (his term is “sex worker”) who engaged in BDSM (bondage, discipline, sado-masochism) with his clients.
Titled, “What I Learned as a Trans Dominatrix,” the article is very disturbing and also very sad. “I had tried for so many years to alleviate my depression and dysphoria through random sex, I had lost track of how many partners I’ve had,” he says. He also talks about his male clients who wanted to be tied up, beaten, have hot wax poured on them, etc.
Dees included this photo of himself as a transgender BDSM dominatrix in his article.
Unfortunately, this sort of behavior and dysfunction is probably far more common among Drag Queens than their allies in libraries and government will ever admit. Yet they have no problem letting them work with young children.
“Chicken” symbolism. What more do we need to know?
As we’ve described in previous posts, the expression “chickens” in “gay” slang refers to under-age boys that older gay men find and seduce. In other words, pederasty. So, when these cross-dressing homosexual men casually wave around a rubber chicken at a children’s event, that seems to be a pretty clear message. Dees, who has been convicted of multiple sex offenses against young children, was photographed at a Drag Queen Story Hour event doing exactly that.

Local media decline to cover story; no reaction from politicians
When Houston MassResistance exposed the first DQSH sex offender on March 18, the story made a big splash in the local press and also in the national conservative press. Local politicians weighed in – or scrambled for cover. The public library officials were forced to issue a public apology, and eventually the entire event was shut down (at least temporarily).
But this time, things turned out differently. On April 3, Houston MassResistance called a press conference outside of the public library, just as they did the last time. Local media showed up, as before.

The media definitely showed up that day.
A reporter asks some questions. They certainly seemed interested — but then later nothing got reported!
But afterwards there was virtually no local coverage. And not a peep from any public officials. It was eerie. The following day, MassResistance activists were part of a local Fox 26 TV interview show about the news, but later that show was mysteriously removed from the TV station’s website.
If you go to the Houston Fox 26 TV website and search for the interview they did with Houston Massresistance about the Drag Queen sex offender, this is all you get!
Since the story wasn’t going “viral,” most of the national conservative media weren’t picking it up either. There were two exceptions. PJ Mediagot the press release and posted an article a few hours before the press conference. The other site was InfoWars.
One of the media’s excuses we heard was that they couldn’t verify Dees’s records directly from the state, since the records are “sealed.” But that doesn’t mean they don’t exist, or that it can’t be reported using other reputable sources. InfoWars was able to do that without any problem. To date, no one has disputed the facts that were presented.
The Houston Public Library is now talking about bringing back the Drag Queen Story Hour event this summer! So Houston MassResistance isn’t slowing down a bit. This is such a depraved situation, so there is surely much more to be exposed.
More BDSM – Dees posing with men who humiliate themselves by acting as “pups” – dogs who serve their master!
First of all, Tracy Shannon and the others have now amassed over 600 pages of very disturbing material about the DQSH, the officials behind it, laws and rules that were broken, and the lurid background of the Drag Queens themselves. (This is in addition to the 163-page report they presented to the City Council in March.) The new material will be released soon.
Second, Houston public officials have been illegally refusing to release key information about the Drag Queen event. Tracy and the others have been pressing them for months via FOIA (Freedom of Information Act) requests to find out the answers to many questions regarding this event.Dan Kleinman of SafeLibrarieshas been especially helpful in assisting MassResistance take this important FOIA dispute directly to the Texas Attorney General. It appears likely that the Texas AG will intervene.And third, at the April 3 press conference, Tracy laid out some further demands:
MassResistance will demand an audit of the entire HPL [Houston Public Library] background checks vs volunteer applications to see how many have experienced an “oversight” and how many sex offenders have been allowed to participate in children’s programming at the libraries in Houston. We will also be demanding a city ordinance that requires background checks for all city-sanctioned programs for children.
We are clearly winning, but the fight in Houston is far from over. A lot has been accomplished by these outstanding Houston MassResistance activists. None of this would have come to light without their incredible work. What they found should frighten and anger everyone as these ghastly events show up across the country. source
Brethren, this may not be getting the coverage that it should by the leftwing media, but we can certainly circulate this on social media! This MUST be stopped!
The insanity of it is mind boggling!
OH, COME LORD JESUS!
