Obama to Name New York City Tavern as National Monument to ‘Gay Rights’

Stonewall Credit Daniel Case-compressedNEW YORK — Barack Obama plans to mark “Gay Pride Month” in June by designating a tavern in New York City as being a national monument to “gay rights”—the first move of its kind made by an American president.

The Stonewall Inn had been raided by police in 1969 over reports of homosexual activity at the private bar and dance club, which resulted in six days of rioting from homosexuals who opposed the raid. The incident is considered by some as sparking the homosexual rights movement in America.

Barack Obama cited the location in his 2013 inaugural address, stating, “We, the people, declare today that the most evident of truths—that all of us are created equal—is the star that guides us still, just as it guided our forebears through Seneca Falls, and Selma, and Stonewall.”

While the tavern has already been designated a landmark by the city, New York Rep. Jerrod Nadler and Sen. Kristen Gillibrand, both Democrats, proposed in September that the area be made into a national park and launched a petition drive for its designation. They stated that they believed they had a better chance of memorializing the site with Obama than with the Republican-controlled Congress and have been pushing for the designation before Obama leaves office in January.

“We must have federal recognition of the LGBT movement’s history and origins and ensure that this piece of LGBT history is preserved for future generations,” Nadler said.

Mayor Bill DeBlasio has expressed his support for the proposal, as well as Sen. Chuck Schumer.

“Making the Stonewall Inn site a unit of the National Park system is the right thing to do,” Schumer has stated.

Christopher Park, located across the street from the Stonewall Inn, would be part of the national system if approved. A sculpture of four men symbolizing “gay liberation” was dedicated in the park in 1992. It had been commissioned by Peter Putnam of the Mildred Andrews Fund and created by George Segal.

According to the Washington Post, Interior Secretary Sally Jewell and National Park Service Director Jonathan Jarvis are scheduled to travel to New York City for a meeting about the matter on May 9. Interior Department spokesman Amanda Degroff told reporters that Obama has “made clear that he’s committed to ensuring our national parks, monuments and public lands help Americans better understand the places and stories that make this nation great.”

The White House has yet to confirm Obama’s plans to declare the site a national monument next month.

As previously reported, homosexuality was outlawed in early America as a number of states passed sodomy laws under their criminal statutes, banning sexual activity between those of the same gender due to biblical prohibitions against it.

“By 1791, when the original 13 states ratified the Bill of Rights, they all treated sodomy as a criminal offense,” chronicles on the matter state.

In 1778, General George Washington ordered Lieutenant Frederick Gotthold Enslin to be drummed out of the camp for “attempting to commit sodomy” with a male soldier.

His March 14th proclamation stated, “His Excellency, the Commander in Chief, approves the sentence, and with abhorrence and detestation of such infamous crimes, orders Lieut. Enslin to be drummed out of camp tomorrow morning by all the drummers and fifers in the Army never to return; the drummers and fifers to attend on the Grand Parade at guard mounting for that purpose.”

    Honestly believe this president is Gay. No other president has been so consumed with the gay agenda.

    • Tangent002

      Why does one need to be gay to support LGBT equality?

    • TheBottomline4This

      He’s not gay, but he is muslim.

      • Tangent002

        I thought he was a Marxist Atheist.

      • gizmo23

        You realize that thousands of our servicemen died protecting Muslims and other people. Some of those dead GI’s were Muslim

        • ComeOnPeople!

          Yes and thanks to Obamanation we may just have a load of them immigrating into our services very soon if not already. Funny how we had few muslims in the US and we get this president and now we not only have mosques going up everywhere but we have 300,000 being brought in on a free pass.

          • Tangent002

            You don’t think we should help refugees?

          • TheBottomline4This

            Before isis, yes it was fine, but since isis, not at all. The U.S. is not the only option for the refugees. There are many other places in the world that can take them on. Isis has ruined the help for refugees. The blame is on isis for that one.

          • Tangent002

            Do you really think a Daesh terrorist is going to go through the two-year process it takes to enter the U.S. as a refugee, risking being revealed at any step along the way?

            The U.S. took in displaced persons during WWII (my mother was one), even though there was always the risk of infiltration. The U.S. becoming fearful of ‘the other’, especially Muslims, is the stated goal of Daesh, as it increases their recruitment pool. The way terrorists destroy America is by turning us against our own principles.

          • ComeOnPeople!

            No terrorists destroy those who are passive just like 911. Who think there is no threat and sleep as they plan. The Quran their holy book commands them to destroy any who do not convert. This is the belief of the people you and others wish to bring into the USA. You are closing your eyes to the danger of bringing in people with a belief system that demands the conversion of the whole world to what they believe or be killed and not by courts but by individuals of their faith. It’s their duty as a muslim. STUDY their book!

          • disqus_O2BUmbLecp

            U should not compare WORLD War 2 with the sectarian ISIS War(= Sunni vs Shia Muslims).?
            WW2 happened nearly 80 years ago when USA was much less populated(= 130 million) n needed immigrants, esp from Europe.

          • disqus_O2BUmbLecp

            We can help refugees by providing aid to them in refuges in Jordan, Turkey, Lebanon, Iran, etc. There is no real need to let them into our country. Once we allow them in, the floodgates will open bc refugees will flock to wealthy countries, eg Western Europe.

            Similar, there is no need for USA to give citizenship to the mostly Hispanic illegal immigrants. Just help them by giving them temporary work visas/permits under the already existing(since the 1950s) H2 guest worker programs.

            All these treacherous helping of foreigners is the ‘bleeding-heart’ liberal Blue States pandering for votes.

          • ComeOnPeople!

            Sure but funny how all of a sudden we are deciding to do so only for muslims . Hmmmm

          • gizmo23

            So how many Muslims do you wish to kill?

          • ComeOnPeople!

            I don’t wish to kill anyone even if they go against what I believe to be truth. Now a muslim on the other hand does wish to kill anyone who will not agree with what they believe is truth.

          • gizmo23

            I refuse to live in fear. If someone doesn’t harm me they are no concern of mine

          • ComeOnPeople!

            No terrorists win when we become passive . Spill you thinking to Israel and see if they agree with you. Terrorists love people who believe there is no threat.

          • ComeOnPeople!

            Oh I see… you care only about yourself and not society as a whole.

          • gizmo23

            Not at all ! People that do harm to others need to be severely punished or removed so they cannot hurt others. Thing that effect society need to be dealt with

          • acontraryview

            “their doctrine and you may find that anyone who does not convert will be destroyed.”

            Same doctrine as Christianity.

          • ComeOnPeople!

            No you need to read your bible. God’s people only killed people in the land they took over just like any other people who go in to possess a land. As for laws in the bible that if broken required death. Those were carried out by the courts just like in America or any other country. God’s people never were allowed to force conversion and put to death those who would not do so. If you are talking about Roman Catholics… most don’t consider them to be Christian. Their history is as the Muslims who kill those who disagree with them. The word of God never condones killing those who do not believe as you do. The main theme is love not hate. Study the word of God and then study the Quran. One is based on love and the other hate.

          • gizmo23

            Your view of law and other faiths is truly frightening

          • ComeOnPeople!

            Okay please explain why in America there is certain offenses of American LAWS that if broken could receive a death sentence. It is the same with the laws of the bible. Those who broke certain laws only within Israel could be put to death but they went through a process. There had to be witnesses just like in any court and then only the judges passed sentence, just like our court system. Your view of law and other faiths is not based on knowledge or scripture and is more frightening then my views which come from the study of scriptures not only of the bible but other holy books and the study of history. Study the Quran and the Bible and see which is based on love and which promotes hate. See which encompasses all people for punishments under their law and which promotes punishments under the law only for the people of that book. You will then be no longer be frightened by what I wrote but will know that one group seeks to destroy anyone who will not agree with their laws and the other asks only those who are a part of their group to uphold their laws.

          • acontraryview

            “God’s people only killed people in the land they took over just like any other people who go in to possess a land. ”

            ROFL. And that makes it OK? So Jesus advocated both taking over other people’s lands and, when doing so, killing the people who lived there?

            Deuteronomy 17

            If there be found among you, within any of thy gates which the LORD thy God giveth thee, man or woman, that hath wrought wickedness in the sight of the LORD thy God, in transgressing his covenant; 17:3 And hath gone and served other gods, and worshipped them, either the sun, or moon, or any of the host of heaven, which I have not commanded; 17:4 And it be told thee, and thou hast heard of it, and enquired diligently, and, behold, it be true, and the thing certain, that such abomination is wrought in Israel; 17:5 Then shalt thou bring forth that man or that woman, which have committed that wicked thing, unto thy gates, even that man or that woman, and shalt stone them with stones, till they die.

            Deuteronomy 13

            6 If your very own brother, or your son or daughter, or the wife you love, or your closest friend secretly entices you, saying, “Let us go and worship other gods” (gods that neither you nor your ancestors have known, 7 gods of the peoples around you, whether near or far, from one end of the land to the other), 8 do not yield to them or listen to them. Show them no pity. Do not spare them or shield them. 9 You must certainly put them to death. Your hand must be the first in putting them to death, and then the hands of all the people. 10 Stone them to death, because they tried to turn you away from the Lord your God, who brought you out of Egypt, out of the land of slavery. 11 Then all Israel will hear and be afraid, and no one among you will do such an evil thing again.

            12 If you hear it said about one of the towns the Lord your God is giving you to live in 13 that troublemakers have arisen among you and have led the people of their town astray, saying, “Let us go and worship other gods” (gods you have not known), 14 then you must inquire, probe and investigate it thoroughly. And if it is true and it has been proved that this detestable thing has been done among you, 15 you must certainly put to the sword all who live in that town. You must destroy it completely, both its people and its livestock. 16 You are to gather all the plunder of the town into the middle of the public square and completely burn the town and all its plunder as a whole burnt offering to the Lord your God. That town is to remain a ruin forever, never to be rebuilt.

            Perhaps you can explain the slaughter of Native Americans and the kidnapping of their children based on the rational that they were “heathens”. Were only Catholics doing that?

            “Roman Catholics…most don’t consider them to be Christian.”

            …….Bush Jr left office with the US govt in about US$10 trillion in debt. The US Army were occupying Afghanistan n Iraq. Al Qaeda terrorists were limited in their attacks or not occurring everywhere.

          • gizmo23

            I thought the Bush tax cuts were going to solve that and save the economy, that’s how they were sold.

          • disqus_O2BUmbLecp

            In 2006, while serving his first term as a freshman U.S. senator from
            Illinois, Barack Obama made the remarks attributed to him above during
            discussion in the U.S. Senate prior to the call for votes on raising the debt limit.

            The full text of his remarks in the Senate on 16 March 2006 are:

            Mr. President, I rise today to talk about America’s debt problem.

            The fact that we are here today to debate raising America’s debt limit
            is a sign of leadership failure. It is a sign that the U.S. Government
            can’t pay its own bills. It is a sign that we now depend on ongoing
            financial assistance from foreign countries to finance our Government’s
            reckless fiscal policies.

            Over the past 5 years, our federal debt has increased by $3.5 trillion to $8.6 trillion. That is “trillion” with a “T.” That is money that we have borrowed from the Social Security trust fund, borrowed from China and Japan, borrowed from American taxpayers. And over the next 5 years, between now and 2011, the President’s budget will increase the debt by almost another $3.5 trillion. …….

            I don’t care what Obama said back then Bush was president. So what do you want to cut? The dems and GOP have said military SSI and Medicare are off the table and those are by for most of the budget. In fact cut everything else and we would still run a deficit

            The ISIS problem is Obama’s fault(= overthrowing Gaddafi, Mubarak n Assad, n withdrawing fully from Iraq) n at this point appear to be not contained. Were there millions of war refugees during Bush’s time.?

            Yes there were many war refugees during Bush almost 500,000 non vetted came to the US from Iraq.
            The policy of the USA was to overthrow those leaders> Just ask Reagan, Bush 1 and 2 and Clinton. We got what we wished for.

            With this reply, u hv admitted that Obama is worse than or as bad as Bush, in terms of overthrowing govts n creating/evolving refugees, which contradicts yr earlier statement that Obama is better than Bush.

        Here’s some actual truth as opposed to your propaganda.

        The Numbers

        New HIV Infectionsb

        • In 2010, gay and bisexual men accounted for 63% of estimated new HIV infections in the United States and 78% of infections among all newly infected men. From 2008 to 2010, new HIV infections increased 22% among young (aged 13-24) gay and bisexual men and 12% among gay and bisexual men overall.

        • Among all gay and bisexual men, white gay and bisexual men accounted for 11,200 (38%) estimated new HIV infections in 2010. The largest number of new infections among white gay and bisexual men (3,300; 29%) occurred in those aged 25 to 34.

        • Among all gay and bisexual men, black/African American gay and bisexual men accounted for 10,600 (36%) estimated new HIV infections in 2010. The largest number of new infections among black/African American gay and bisexual men (4,800; 45%) occurred in those aged 13 to 24. From 2008 to 2010 new infections increased 20% among young black/African American gay and bisexual men aged 13 to 24.

        • Among all gay and bisexual men, Hispanic/Latino gay and bisexual men accounted for 6,700 (22%) estimated new HIV infections in 2010. The largest number of new infections among Hispanic/Latino gay and bisexual men (3,300; 39%) occurred in those aged 25 to 34.

        HIV and AIDS Diagnosesc

        • In 2013, in the United States, gay and bisexual men accounted for 81% (30,689) of the 37,887 estimated HIV diagnoses among all males aged 13 years and older and 65% of the 47,352 estimated diagnoses among all persons receiving an HIV diagnosis that year.

        • In 2013, gay and bisexual men accounted for 55% of the estimated number of persons diagnosed with AIDS among all adults and adolescents in the United States. Of the estimated 14,611 gay and bisexual men diagnosed with AIDS, 40% were blacks/African Americans; 32% were whites; and 23% were Hispanics/Latinos.

        • By the end of 2011, an estimated 311,087 gay and bisexual men with AIDS had died in the United States since the beginning of the epidemic, representing 47% of all deaths of persons with AIDS.

        • In 2011, CDC data showed that 80.6% of MSM with diagnosed HIV infection were linked to care, 57.5% were retained in care, 52.9% were prescribed antiretroviral therapy (ART), and 44.6% had achieved viral suppression.

        Sounds much more like a Homosexual issue than a Heterosexual one.. Remember the Homosexual population isn’t more than a percent.

        • Peter Leh

          “”2010, gay and bisexual men accounted for 63% of estimated new HIV
          infections in the United States and 78% of infections among all newly
          infected men.”

          how can these two numbers be the different when talking about men and new infections?

          newly infected men : 63%
          newly infected men: 78%

          • Charles

            This is based amongst all men.. So 78% of the men infected are Homosexuals among the entire Male US population.

          • Bob Johnson

            78% of entire male population which means 22% of newly reported infections were women.
            63% gay and bi men (37% other – straight men and women).

            To understand these sorts of claims, I’d suggest starting with Huff’s, “How to lie with Statistics,”

        • Peter Leh

          so what are the numbers for lesbians?

          • Jolanda Tiellemans

            they keep forgetting the lesbians. Makes you wonder.

        • acontraryview

          “Sounds much more like a Homosexual issue than a Heterosexual one.”

          The numbers above are for the US. But….surprise…..the US isn’t the whole world. So, if you look worldwide, you will find that approximately 90% of HIV infections occurred as a result of heterosexual relations or childbirth.

          Oh, here’s another surprise for you Charles. Homosexuals come in two varieties, male and female. Lesbians have the lowest rate of HIV infection of any demographic – even lower than heterosexuals.

          • Charles

            You are forgetting that the Homosexual populations are very small and so of course their numbers are going to be smaller by population.. If you say 90% of Heterosexuals are infected, that still isn’t a good number for the Homosexuals as they are no more than 2% of the population. If you are going to make this 90% claim, please site your source.

        The Stonewall Inn was a place where male prostitutes frequented, not to mention all other segments of the morally sick gay community. There is nothing about that place that makes it worthy of this honor, and nothing about the homosexual lifestyle that merits honoring that community either. You’ll never get me on board with that soul-destroying, hiv-infected population of sexual misfits. For any reason. Not after seeing them target good and decent business people, putting them out of business, and mockingly jeering them while doing so.

          • lee metzger

            Wrong. The Stonewall Inn was a place where a lot of SIN went on, day after day, night after night.. Further, alcoholics don’t get rights because they’re alcoholics. Ditto drug addicts, sex-addicts, philanderers and any and all individuals who prefer sexual relations with those of the same sex. It’s incredibly insulting to pair up in the same breath people who are born of a certain ethnic group, with those who’d buck anything that moves, as most in the homosexual community do.

          • gizmo23

            Christians weren’t born that way so should they have any rights?

          • Peter Leh

            alcoholics are not exclusively homosexual. neither are drug addicts, sex addicts.

            “It’s incredibly insulting to pair up in the same breath people who are born of a certain ethnic group,”

            or religious groups… YET those who choose their religion are indeed a part of “protected groups”… are you suggesting religion be taken off?

        • acontraryview

          So you can’t explain how they are different. Got it. Thanks.

          • lee metzger

            There’s nothing to explain. Born by ethnicity is irreversible. Homosexuality is sexually-driven behavior, all driven by choice and sexual “fluidity.” Alcoholics, drugs abusers, etc, don’t get rights based on their choice to abuse their bodies, and neither should anyone else who deliberately engages in abhorrent, body-destroying behavior.

          • acontraryview

            “There’s nothing to explain.”

            I agree with that.

            “Homosexuality is sexually-driven behavior”

            Sexuality – whether homo or hetero – is not a behavior.

            “Alcoholics, drugs abusers, etc, don’t get rights based on their choice to abuse their bodies”

            How would that be comparable?

            “neither should anyone else who deliberately engages in abhorrent, body-destroying behavior.”

            Who is suggesting that rights be based upon engagement in “abhorrent, body-destroying behavior”?

          • lee metzger

            Simple on alcoholics, etc. They choose to abuse their bodies, so sorry results naturally follow. Same with gays, especially gay men who “buck” everything that moves. They lead the world in HIV as a result, and THAT behavior is choice driven, not gene driven, and NOBODY should receive rights for that. As far as your last comment, your argument is lost right there because gays aren’t distinguished by their “ethnicity” but by their sexual fluidity. THAT, and that alone is the sine que non of homosexuality, and to opine otherwise is simply a bold-faced lie.

          • acontraryview

            The vast majority of gay people do not “abuse their bodies”, so no, alcoholics and sexuality are not comparable. Since some Christians abuse their bodies, you are saying that makes them the same as alcoholics, and thus religious belief should not be a covered category. It is a ridiculous comparison.

            “they lead the world in HIV as a result, ”

            That is an incorrect statement. The majority of those who are infected with HIV are heterosexuals.

            “and NOBODY should receive rights for that. ”

            Who is suggesting that someone receive rights because they are infected with HIV?

            “gays aren’t distinguished by their “ethnicity” but by their sexual fluidity. ”

            What do you mean by “sexual fluidity”? Our rights as citizens are based on one thing and one thing only – being citizens. As such, it is required that all citizens be treated equally under the law.

          • Jolanda Tiellemans

            so when did you choose to be straight? For me when I was about 12 years old and got a crush on a boy in my class. I’ll guess that is when I decided to be straight. Not that that was something I paid attention to, he was just cute.

          • lee metzger

            stop with the grade school arguments. Seriously…..

          • Jolanda Tiellemans

            So you didn’t choose to fall in love with a woman, it just happened? As it also just happens with other couples, be it straight, homosexual, interracial. It’s called love, plain and simple.

          • lee metzger

            homosexuals don’t fall in love, they fall into lust. Sorry, dude, but I’m not ignorant about the sexual proclivities that afflict the gay community, especially gay men, and without a doubt, sincere, monogamous love is the LAST thing on their plate. They’ve always been about destroying traditional moral and relational constructs, so please, spare me the general “it’s called love….” Totally not true, and if you seriously believe that, you’re amazingly naive.

          • Jolanda Tiellemans

            Stop with the same old Christian arguments. Seriously…

          • Josey

            One can make a choice to lust after the same sex where the other cannot choose what skin color they are born with, there’s your difference but do I expect you to understand the difference? no.

          • acontraryview

            “One can make a choice to lust after the same sex”

            Are you saying that you believe sexuality is a choice? If so, what is your basis for believing that?

          • Charles

            Research of twins.

          • Josey

            It’s also spread through the use of dirty needles but aids started with the homosexual community, fact.

          • acontraryview

            Actually, no AIDS did not start with the gay community. You may want to do some research so that you are able to post with a higher level of factual knowledge. AIDS was first found in Central and West Africa. Over 90% of HIV infections worldwide are the result of heterosexual relations.

            If you would like to know actual facts about the history of HIV and AIDS, this will be helpful: https://en.wikipedia. org/wiki/History_of_HIV/AIDS

          • lee metzger

            Yeah, and do you care to admit HOW it started in Central and West Africa? You’d never admit it, for sure, but we all know what happened.

          • acontraryview

            I take it that accessing the link was too much trouble for you. Oh well. I’ll do it for you. First transmission occurred between simian and human via blood. From there, it spread through Africa based upon heterosexual relations. This goes back to the middle of the last century. The vast majority of HIV infected people in the world became infected through heterosexual relations or child birth.

      • Charles

        What does race have to do with a sexual preference? The answer? Not a thing..

    • Peter Leh

      lee, what are the protected groups in the same breath?

    • gogo0

      how about ministers and priests that sexually assault little boys and girls in churches? are they not sexually addicted? you guys focus so much attention on and pidgeonhole a few groups, yet ignore your own.
      its difficult to believe any of you have actually read the bible, or even go to church when displaying such willful ignorance. look at matthew 7:3 and think about what you can do to stop sexual deviancy in your own organization before trying to impose your values on others

      • Josey

        They who do such things do not know or have a personal relationship with Christ Jesus, they are false prophets, ministers who are fallen. It would be better for a millstone to be hung around their necks and for them to be cast into the sea than to offend these little ones…Jesus Christ.

        • gogo0

          its difficult to harp on the logical fallacy you presented when that would be arguing a ‘true’ christian could possibly include those who molest kids (one of mohammad’s more-famous endeavors, since we are on the subject). the bible has a lot of jacked-up stuff in it, but as far as i am aware none of it condones sexual exploitation of children beyond Lot offering his kids for rape and caleb giving his daughter up as a prize.

          • Josey

            Once again, anyone having a personal relationship with Christ Jesus and follows by obeying Him daily would never harm a child or anyone else, that isn’t what the Holy Spirit teaches His own. There are many who claim to be Christian for whatever reason but doesn’t make it so, their life will show daily who they really are. And as far as Lot goes, Abraham made intercession for him, that’s the only reason God spared Lot at that time. God was going to destroy everyone and all in Sodom and God revealed this to Abraham and Abraham knowing his nephew was there interceded for him but does that make Lot right with God? And another thing is this was way before Christ died for our sins, they followed the laws of God which showed them how imperfect they were and how they needed a Savior which Christ fulfilled the law through grace. No one could live up to the law, that was the point, to show them that. We who believe on Christ are saved by faith and grace alone but in that sin is not given a pass. How can one who has died to sin and been born again through the Spirit of God through his or her faith in Christ’s sacrifice continue living in sin but if one does sin we have a mediator in Christ and confess our sins to God through Christ and it’s forgiven never to be remembered by God ever again. Paul said he didn’t look back or dwell on the past but pressed onward to the high calling that is in Christ Jesus. True born again Christians are in a race and press on and no one is judge over a born again believer except God. I don’t expect you to understand for you have not the Spirit of God giving you understanding but I have spoken it anyway for perhaps God will be gracious to you and show you the truth I’ve spoken and if you reject that truth, it will be a witness against you when you stand before the throne of God.

      • lee metzger

        These ministers and priests are NOT living out Christian values when they commit those atrocities. Gays, however ARE living out their beliefs when they acquire HIV, and other std’s which they spread everywhere they go due to their sexual “fluidity.” If you can’t see the difference in that, there’s nothing more to talk about.

      • lee metzger

        Speaking of stopping sexual deviancy, see the facebook site, EX-homosexual through Jesus Christ. We’re stopping sexual deviancy all right, whether gay or heterosexual deviancy, and we’re doing it through the prescription provided for in that book you mentioned, the Bible, which is repentance of sin and putting our faith and trust in Jesus Christ. See, you’re all so full of leftwing hateful talking points, that you MISS what we’re really all about, and you MISS what we really ARE doing to rescue people from this incredibly self-destructive lifestyle.

            the bible does say to stone adulterers in Leviticus, but that was the bloodthirsty old testament god that doesn’t count anymore.
            saying you don’t have to accept their personal choice about what they do in private is a very dangerous position to take. that opens the door for anyone to say that you worshipping god in private is something they do not have to accept.

          • ComeOnPeople!

            No the bible has a court system for the Jews that was for those people and if you study that court system you will find that most of the religious rulers did everything possible in hopes of not putting someone to death. You had to have witnesses and go threw a process. Just like the death penalty in the USA there is a process and the USA can not enforce it’s laws on those outside it’s society. People who ask the question that you just did , do not understand the bible or it’s history.

      • Peter Leh

        which of the above is not good?

        Equal protection of american citizens is always a good thing and bad for those who oppose equal protection of american citizens.

        • ComeOnPeople!

          Catering to the insane is not good change. Gender confusion up until a few years ago was considered a mental health issue. Being black or a woman has never been considered a mental health issue.

            but we do know the SBC was formed to keep there god given right to own slaves …being they were “cursed” by ham. continues up to the apology 150 years later.. yet they still continue to do what they apologized for.. so they really have not changed or learned from their past.

          • ComeOnPeople!

            Slavery has been in every society and of every color known to man. As to curing homosexuality and other harmful choices made by mankind, I believe there is a cure and it’s not cutting their brains out but them coming back to their Creator.

            “Slavery has been in every society and of every color known to man.”

          • ComeOnPeople!

            If mankind would come back to a Holy God they would not have a problem with others. They would not murder, lie, cheat or steal. They would not be unfaithful in their relationship with their mates or with the Creator Himself. They would leave unnatural affections & perversions behind. But men continue to go there own way and do their own thing. They believe themselves to be wise and are fools. God’s ways are higher then our ways , His thoughts higher. Unless a person allows them-self to be under His rulership they remain under another rulership. We cannot have our cake and eat it also. Either God is our King and we are living in His kingdom under His authority or We serve our own selves and are living under a different set of rules. Because men go their own way and are in rebellion to God you have what you have now… an immoral , unjust and perverse kingdom.

            Equal protection? Do tell me how a man being expected to use the bathroom created for him is harming him if he feels he is a woman. Transgender males already declare they have been using ladies restroom without a law being passed to say society accepts this. Those that will be harmed by such a law would be women and girls because such a law being passed would make it assertable for a male to be in a ladies restroom. Such a LAW would create havoc and would have to allow ALL males into ladies restroom or other male types would scream discrimination and unequal protect. PLEASE! The insanity never ends. Laws are passed to protect society as a whole not cater to every whim humanity come up with.
