Obama Admin Demands Hospitals Accommodate Transgenders Or Lose Funding

hospital II pdWASHINGTON — On the same day that the U.S. Department of Justice and the U.S. Department of Education threatened to revoke funding for public schools that do not allow students to use the restroom and locker room that correlates with their “gender identity,” the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) also released guidelines requiring federally-funded hospitals that may require hospital systems to perform sex change operations or similarly lose funding.

The rules pertain to language in the Affordable Care Act (ACA), otherwise known as Obamacare, and affects all hospitals that accept Medicare or Medicaid, as well as those directly funded by HHS. (Read in full here.)

The government asserts that the rules build upon the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and the Education Amendments of 1972, which the Obama administration has interpreted in recent months as applying to “gender identity.”

“Section 1557 builds on prior federal civil rights laws to prohibit sex discrimination in health care,” the document reads. “The final rule requires that women be treated equally with men in the health care they receive and also prohibits the denial of health care or health coverage based on an individual’s sex, including discrimination based on pregnancy, gender identity, and sex stereotyping.”

“The final rule also requires covered health programs and activities to treat individuals consistent with their gender identity,” it notes.

The department provide the examples that “a covered entity may not deny, based on an individual’s identification as a transgender male, treatment for ovarian cancer where the treatment is medically indicated” and if “an issuer or state Medicaid agency denies a claim for coverage for a hysterectomy that a patient’s provider says is medically necessary to treat gender dysphoria,” the case will be investigated.

The site Modern Healthcare also outlines that the rules could require that hospitals provide sex change operations and other treatments related to switching one’s gender identity.

“The rule does not explicitly require insurers to cover gender-transition treatments such as surgery. But insurers could face questions if they deny medically necessary services related to gender transition for a man who identifies as a woman, or a woman who identifies as a man,” it explains.

HHS says that in such cases, “[i]n evaluating whether it is discriminatory to deny or limit a request for coverage for a particular service for an individual seeking the service as part of transition-related care, … OCR will start by inquiring whether and to what extent coverage is available when the same service is not related to gender transition.”

“[T]ransgender people can now enter bathrooms or hospital wards consistent with their gender identity,” Modern Healthcare also notes. There are questions surrounding whether males who identify as females will be placed in shared rooms with female patients.

“While the final rule does not resolve whether discrimination on the basis of an individual’s sexual orientation status alone is a form of sex discrimination under Section 1557, the rule makes clear that OCR will evaluate complaints that allege sex discrimination related to an individual’s sexual orientation to determine if they involve the sorts of stereotyping that can be addressed under Section 1557,” a summary of the rules additionally explains.

“HHS supports prohibiting sexual orientation discrimination as a matter of policy and will continue to monitor legal developments on this issue,” the document outlines.

The Obama administration states that the rules do not include exemptions for religious entities, but also “does not displace existing protections for religious freedom and conscience.”

Hospitals might lose federal funding if they refuse to comply.

“Where noncompliance or threatened noncompliance cannot be corrected by informal means, available enforcement mechanisms include suspension of, termination of, or refusal to grant or continue federal financial assistance; referral to the Department of Justice with a recommendation to bring proceedings to enforce any rights of the United States; and any other means authorized by law,” the rule outlines.

A lawsuit might also be filed against the infringing entity in an effort to force compliance.

Faith-based organizations have expressed concern over being forced to provide sex change operations and other similar treatments, which they believe infringes on the rights of religious hospitals, such as Roman Catholic or Baptist hospital systems.

“This intolerant and unjust rule, in turn, threatens to force health care providers to participate in and perform services that substantially violate their consciences,” David Christensen, vice president of government affairs for the Washington-based Family Research Council, said in a statement.

“This is Orwellian,” Ken Klukowski with the First Liberty Institute also stated. “But beyond that, it is an unconstitutional assault on the First Amendment that the Obama administration is forcing their rejection of biological fact onto people whose faith teaches that ‘man’ and ‘woman’ refer to what they have meant for thousands of years, and that God purposefully created them that way.”

    The Gay and Trans Agendas are one of the things that is ruining this country. Forcing others to go along with this is bullying. These things don’t change minds of those who know the truth. Enjoy the temporary “victories” you have for now.

      but christians bullying everyone into following their bible is fine, right?

        No Christian has forced you to go along with the Bible, you have a choice that is yours to make and you will be the only one accountable for that choice, you won’t be able to blame anyone else.

          So when Christians demanded that two citizens of the same gender not be allowed to enter into civil marriage, that wasn’t limiting the rights of others based upon the Christian belief system?

          When Christians demanded laws that required that stores be closed on Sunday (Blue laws), that wasn’t limiting the right of others based upon the Christian belief system?

          When Christians demanded laws that limited liquor sales on Sunday, because it was the “Lord’s Day”, that wasn’t limiting the right of others based upon the Christian belief system?

          When Christians demanded the liquor stores not be allowed to open on Sunday’s until after 12 because people should be in church, not buying liquor, that wasn’t limiting the right of others based upon the Christian belief system?

            RELIGIOUS FREEDOM…Christians have it too. What good is a belief system if you don’t or are not allowed to live it with out being persecuted. If gays and lesbians want to be legally together than fine have a civil service and make a legal contract with each other… but don’t redefine my faith’s definition of marriage. Yes we have a right to stand firm in our beliefs. And no we don’t condone gay lesbian relationship. And we should not be forced to participate in things that compromises our beliefs. Why would a gay or Lesbian couple want to be married in a Church that does not bless there vows? There are gay/lesbian churches let them get married there. Also Christians do not want to have to work on the Sabbath. I don’t have a problem if others want to work. But I do not want to be forced into a schedule where I’m expected to do my fair share of Sundays. I don’t care if others want to shop for what ever the desire on Sunday. I’m aware of several places in my town where you can buy liquor on Sunday. So it isn’t totally banned. God give us free will. If you choose to enter a G/L relationship that is your business until you want me to participate. If you want to shop etc on Sunday and not attend church that is your prerogative but I should not have to . And if the only way I can be assured of that is to vote against it totally that is what I do. So it is about defending my rights from those who do not respect them.

          • Gal 5:22-23

            We have a right to have our beliefs, everyone else has a right to their own, that is the issue here. Your denomination only lets multisex couples be married in the eyes of God, that’s fine, but everyone else has a constitutional right to have beliefs that allow couples to marry regardless of their sexes.

            And ‘forced’? No one is being forced to do anything in compatible with their beliefs. Can’t sell to the public while respecting their constitutional and legal right to NOT share the beliefs of the seller, then don’t make the offer to the public. If a seller can only sell to people of certain faiths they need to make the offer of sale to just those people, not to all the public. No one will force them to offer something to the public they can’t in good conscience sell to them as the law and constitution requires.

          • disqus_O2BUmbLecp

            Yes, but only in this temporal world or earth. God will hold u accountable for yr beliefs or non-beliefs, n He will bless/reward or curse u accordingly, wrt the blessings of the kingdom of heaven or curse of the lake of fire n brimstone..

            HEB.11:6 =
            But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.

            “RELIGIOUS FREEDOM…Christians have it too.”

            Of course they do.

            “What good is a belief system if you don’t or are not allowed to live it with out being persecuted.”

            No one has been persecuted for their beliefs.

            “If gays and lesbians want to be legally together than fine have a civil service and make a legal contract with each other.”

            They do. It’s called a marriage certificate. It is issued by the state. It is a legal contract.

            “but don’t redefine my faith’s definition of marriage.”

            No one can redefine your faith’s definition of marriage except your faith. Your faith is free to define marriage any way they care to.

            “And we should not be forced to participate in things that compromises our beliefs.”

            You are not.

            “Why would a gay or Lesbian couple want to be married in a Church that does not bless there vows?”

            I have idea nor am I aware that any of them do that.

            “But I do not want to be forced into a schedule where I’m expected to do my fair share of Sundays”

            Your employer is required, by law, to make accommodations for your religious beliefs.

            “So it isn’t totally banned.”

            At one time it was. In fact, at one time alcohol was completely banned. No sales at all.

            “If you want to shop etc on Sunday and not attend church that is your prerogative but I should not have to .”

            You don’t.

            “And if the only way I can be assured of that is to vote against it totally that is what I do. ”

            Why would there need to be a law making it illegal for any stores to be open in order to ensure that you don’t have to shop?

            “So it is about defending my rights from those who do not respect them.”

            You have no right to have others respect your rights.

            Do you have a time-frame for when God will be returning? I’d like to plan something. Maybe a nice brunch. I do love brunch.

          We must remember that many of God’s/ /Moses Law only applied in the ancient nation of Judah/Israel, eg the law of tithing 10%, similarly for the laws relating to the Holy Temple/Tabernacle of God, which today is non-existent or no more.
          …….Furthermore, at ACTS.15:24-29, new Gentile Christians r exempted from some of the laws of God/ /Moses if they r a burden to them, eg circumcision, kosher food, etc.

          US Christians do not hv to obey the law of tithing 10% bc they r not living in the ancient nation of Judah/Israel where Moses n Joshua had once ruled/governed like a President/PM. Instead, they should pay the required taxes to the US govt, even if it is more than 10% of their income.
          …….It would be wrong for US Christians to refuse to pay any govt tax that is above 10% by quoting God’s law of tithing 10%.

          As for “tithing” to their Church, about 2% should be enough to support the Church bc the Church is nothing like the ancient nation of Judah/Israel or the US govt, ie the Church do not provide local policing, national defense/security, public infrastructure facilities, public education, healthcare, social welfare services, etc.
          …….It is greedy for pastors to use the law of tithing 10% on their Church members = false prophets/pastors who “ravish” the sheep financially.

          Hence, while the Jews in Judah/Israel were living under Roman rule/govt, Jesus Christ had commanded them to “Render unto Caesar/govt what belongs to Caesar n render unto God what belongs to God”.(MATT.22:21)
          …….This command will apply when the world n US govt/Caesar requires everybody to receive the “mark of the beast” in order to be able to buy n sell efficiently(REV.13:11-18) = likely to be cptr chip implants. Christians should reject the mark or they will lose their salvation.. But rejection of the mark will result in being persecuted/prosecuted/jailed or left to die of starvation(= martyrdom).

      • disqus_O2BUmbLecp

        No, Christians just want everybody to follow the US Constitution n established laws.
        ……. Obama is misinterpreting the 1964 Civil Rights Act to include the LGBTQs with the bullied or discriminated Blacks, just to pander for the LGBTQ-vote n hoping to benefit Hillary n the Democrat Party during the coming elections.

        The Blacks in the South were bullied with unfair Jim Crow laws. In comparison, USA had sodomy laws n other moral laws since the 1791 US Constitution or 18th century. Only in the 1970s, did the liberal Blue States began abolishing sodomy laws to pander for the LGBTQ-vote, in order to beat n bully the conservative South/Red States in the national elections.

      FIRST I am a Christian !!! Second i am Trans. The Transgender Brain development
      How does the M to F Transgender?
      Like the normal male embryo, the Male to female Transgender brain it starts out
      female Then between the 8th and the 24th weeks, the “XY” chromosomes introduce
      testosterone hormonal changes, BUT hormonal washes as faulty. They are either
      insufficient or ill timed. When this happens, the fetus develops a male body.
      However, some of the default (original) female brain processes to remain intact.
      Thus, the brain’s gender Identity remain intact. Thus,the brain gender Identity
      remains Female. This means that Transgender males whose process of a
      masculinization was incomplete, their default female brains still function.
      The degree of arrested development can very. The original brain circuitry that
      was missed in the Masculinizing process provides a continuing Feminine influence.
      this explains why many transgender, biological males know. from as early as the
      age of 3 years old that they are actually members of the opposite gender.
      You are born with this unlike Gay/Lesbian/Bisexual).Though they too have some of the same traits.
      Gender is not sexuality but, it may effect it.I know this in my own life.***
      Ultimately everyone needs and deserves love and be who they are in their Gender or who they love. ***
      ***Trans-gender people are not the
      perverts and pedophiles like 80% of the unintelligent population thinks. There
      are more than 90% of so-called Heterosexual people baby rapist and adult rapist in the world than
      Trans-gender people. Trans-gender people are not all about sexual relationships
      with whom ever like the LGB. Acceptance of Gender NOT whom you have sex with are
      two and completely different things.
      They just want to use the restroom wash their hands
      and walk out.The True trans-gender want only 1 thing and that is to pee , then leave A.S.A.P.
      . The only thing Trans-ladies might to in the ladies room is to urinate and hand up, check
      makeup. and MAYBE look at the ladies shoes , clothing, make up and listen to the way the
      talk. THAT’S IT !! and NOT for rape of ANYONE Child or adult females. …

    16. Use technical decisions of the courts to weaken basic American institutions by claiming their activities violate civil rights.

    17. Get control of the schools. Use them as transmission belts for socialism and current Communist propaganda. Soften the curriculum. Get control of teachers’ associations. Put the party line in textbooks.

    18. Gain control of all student newspapers.

    19. Use student riots to foment public protests against programs or organizations which are under Communist attack.

    20. Infiltrate the press. Get control of book-review assignments, editorial writing, policy-making positions.

    21. Gain control of key positions in radio, TV, and motion pictures.

    22. Continue discrediting American culture by degrading all forms of artistic expression. An American Communist cell was told to “eliminate all good sculpture from parks and buildings, substitute shapeless, awkward and meaningless forms.”

    23. Control art critics and directors of art museums. “Our plan is to promote ugliness, repulsive, meaningless art.”

    24. Eliminate all laws governing obscenity by calling them “censorship” and a violation of free speech and free press.

    25. Break down cultural standards of morality by promoting pornography and obscenity in books, magazines, motion pictures, radio, and TV.

    26. Present homosexuality, degeneracy and promiscuity as “normal, natural, healthy.”

    27. Infiltrate the churches and replace revealed religion with “social” religion. Discredit the Bible and emphasize the need for intellectual maturity, which does not need a “religious crutch.”

    28. Eliminate prayer or any phase of religious expression in the schools on the ground that it violates the principle of “separation of church and state.”

            Obama described the new federal agency directive and instructions, which were announced May 9, as “here’s how there are schools that have been wrestling with this problem, and have, we think, done a good job in accommodating them in a way that is good for everybody.”

      since before Jesus was on earth. John 3:16 i am saved. Your Judgement
      on my is a Sin. Let those without sin cast the first stone ! _
      Matthew 7:1-3King James Version (KJV)
      7 Judge not, that ye be not judged.
      2 For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged:
      and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again.
      3 And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother’s eye,
      but considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye?

      God made “man” and from Man’s (Adam’s Rib ) became Woman . SO , female are a Trans-gender < person ???? that is in the BIBLE. JESUS "Love thy neighbor as thy self" Go spread Your HATE and Unintelligent views else where. Hate is a Sin and Of the Devil / Lucifer . You HATE is a Sin !!!!!

        “First i am a Christian !!! second i am Trans-gender….DO NOT JUDGE ME AND DO NOT TELL ME I AM NOT A CHRISTIAN IN MY BODY SOUL AND MIND!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!”

        What you are saying ………….. is self-contradictory ……………… but that is no surprise …..
        Matthew 19 ……………. God made them men and woman ……….. and NOTHING FOLLOWS ….. So no to your assertion ……… and all christians get to JUDGE exactly who is a christian and who is not ………. just as your body decides if something in it is disease and should be dealt with ……. and if it is not ………. we are the body of Christ and have FULL AUTHORITY to JUDGE if a person is or IS NOT a christian ……….. 1 Corinthians 5 & 6 …………… your just saying it in all caps does not make it so …………

    Does everything in the Christian world revolve around what gay people are doing?
    This is the biggest issue facing the USA?

      Um Gizzy, this story is about the trans 🙂

      • gizmo23

        So are most stories here and on most other Christian sites

    • Amos Moses

      And the biggest issue …… in your mind is …………

      • gizmo23

        war, murder of innocent people, providing basic human needs, oppression of religious people, genocide of cultures, environmental degradation.
        Seems that what bathroom people use is way more important than these issues

    Obama To Issue Executive Order Granting Himself Lifelong Supply Of Executive Orders

    WASHINGTON, D.C.—President Barack Obama announced his plans to issue an executive order before leaving office which will decree that he gets to issue an unlimited number of executive orders whenever he wishes after his presidency, and indeed for the rest of his life, according to a White House press release Monday.

    According to sources, the commander-in-chief got the idea from watching the Disney film Aladdin, during the scene when the Genie prohibits the main character from wishing for more wishes. He reportedly jumped up from the couch and declared to nearby Secret Service agents, “Wait a minute—I AM the Genie.” After a cursory two-minute perusal of a dusty copy of the Constitution one of his secretaries found in a basement filing cabinet, Obama concluded there was nothing specifically prohibiting him from executive-ordering himself an infinite number of post-presidential executive orders.

    “Phenomenal cosmic powers!” Obama reportedly declared as he danced around the Oval Office, overjoyed that he wouldn’t have to stop giving unilateral declarations just because he will not be President anymore.

    At publishing time, the President was drafting another order to grant himself indefinite, unrestricted use of military drones after his presidency, to use as he sees fit.

    The legalization of every abomination, a slippery slope indeed but it will come to an end and I am so thankful to know the Lord Jesus personally and not be on the end of that judgement that is coming to all who choose rebellion. Choose whom you will serve, will it be Almighty God or baal, those are your choices, eternal life with all the blessings and holiness or eternal damnation with the devil, that old lying serpent, where there will be gnashing of teeth and torment that does not end and separation from all that is good, God Himself. It is coming!

  • Reason2012

    So notice the hypocritical logic they use:

    If you’re a man who only FEELS like a woman, even though you still have male genitalia, it’s “discrimination” to make him use the bathroom with other men.

    But if you’re REALLY a BIOLOGICAL woman (who obviously also FEELS like a woman, btw), then it’s NOT discrimination to make her use the bathroom with other men who will now walk in on her, both in bathrooms and locker rooms.

    Behold the hypocrisy of their “discrimination” lies.

    They want to discriminate against everyone else in the name of stopping discrimination. They are discriminating against and endangering everyone else by enabling_perverts, predators and_pedophiles.

    Contact your representatives about the REAL discrimination: forcing 100% of women and little girls to use the bathroom with men who will walk in on them in bathrooms and locker rooms.

    • Ambulance Chaser

      What perverts are you referring to?

    Homosexuality: genetics trump feelings: don’t want those feelings anymore? Too bad, because in spite of your feelings you can’t change the genetic fact you’re supposedly homosexual.

    Transgenderism: feelings trump genetics. Don’t want to be a man anymore? That’s fine – ignore the genetic fact you’re a man and mutilate your body to get in line with the REAL truth: your feelings.

    Behold the lies of the perversion activists.

    • Gal 5:22-23

      A very nicely formatted and well crafted Strawman.

      Sexual orientation is about attraction, no requirement for any particular cause for these ‘feelings’ is needed or required. Gender identity is also about a different kind of ‘feeling’ and no particular cause for them is needed or required.

      Of course there is ample evidence that neither sexual orientation or gender identity are simply a ‘choice’ in any reasonable usage of the term, but I doubt you really care about that not its required to burn down strawmen.

      • Reason2012

        // A very nicely formatted and well crafted Strawman. //
        So you’re a pro-homosexual, pro-transgender posing as a Christian. It all makes sense now.

        // Sexual orientation is about attraction, no requirement for any particular cause for these ‘feelings’ is needed or required. //

        You back up what I said: You claim homosexuality is genetic and hence if someone feels like they don’t want those attractions any more, those feelings are to be ignored because genetics cannot be overruled by feelings.

        And yet when it comes to transgender: they now pretend genetic facts like your x or y-chromosomes in trillions of your cells, your genitalia and more are to be ignored as feelings now trump genetics.

        You only proved my point.

        And as adults continue to turn away from homosexuality on their own, it proves homosexuality is not genetic either.

        Thank you for posting.

        • Gal 5:22-23

          Strawmen²

          Pro-? Of course not, I don’t advocate any sexual orientation or gender identity over another. I love people the way they are as Christians do. Christian ‘posers’ are those who have conditional love.

          as for the rest of the word salad, it doesn’t even relate to what I said.

    Seems, Obama is behaving like a suicide-bomber during his last few months in office, ie exacting maximum damage to America as a whole, just to pander for votes n further the liberal agenda of the Blue States.

  • disqus_O2BUmbLecp

    And last year, the foolish House of Congress agreed to easily fund this despotic Obama administration without much restrictions bc they feared being blamed for another govt shutdown n losing this year’s elections. The House Republicans practically gave Obama a blank check to put his Chicago-style thug-politics into practice.

    Homosexualities in particular and deviant sexual behaviors in general, are the fruits of perversion from the decadent American culture. Obama is the Godfather of the anti-Christian mafia that is hell-bent on the destruction of Western Civilization.

    It is not Orwellian so much as it is demonic. We need to support Oklahoma in the process of impeaching Obama. He has become mentally unstable and is not fit for the office.

    You can be sure Obirdbrain will spare no words, effort or expense that as many institutions as possible comply with his dictatorial decrees. Notwithstanding this particular decree, funding (or the lack thereof) for hospitals, schools and others caught in his crosshairs rests with Congress and its “power of the purse”. They can take the dictator out of the equation, should they choose to. Regretfully, today’s Congress is full of paper tigers afraid of their shadows.

  • azchurchmouse

    No Christian hospital shoud be forced to do them.

  • Andrew Nielsen

    Everyone who is claiming to be “Christian” (which is actually govt run, state sponsored religion, started/instituted by Constantine in 321-325 A.D.), and who supports in any way, condones. or in other ways standing in favour or compliance of any of these types of behavior, is in rebellion and disobedience to their Elohim. You cannot be homosexual, transgendered, lesbian or anything that is an abomination in the sight of Yahuah, and then claim to be walking in compliance with Him, that in itself, is blasphemy.

    I Cor 6:9, 10, 15-20

    9 Do you not know that the unrighteous shall not inherit the reign of Elohim? Do not be deceived. Neither those who whore, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor homosexuals, 10 nor thieves, nor greedy of gain, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers shall inherit the reign of Elohim.

    15 Do you not know that your bodies are members of Messiah? Shall I then take the members of Messiah and make them members of a whore? Let it not be! 16 Or do you not know that he who is joined to a whore is one body? For He says, “The two shall become one flesh.” 17 And he who is joined to the Master is one spirit. 18 Flee whoring. Every sin that a man does is outside the body, but he who commits whoring sins against his own body. 19 Or do you not know that your body is the Dwelling Place of the Set-apart Spirit who is in you, which you have from Elohim, and you are not your own? 20 For you were bought with a price, therefore esteem Elohim in your body and in your spirit,*n2 which are of Elohim.

    If we are to really be the followers of Messiah, then we ought to obey, observe and teach the things He did, which was Royal Covenant Torah….

    I Jn 2:1-5

    1 My little children, I write this to you, so that you do not sin. And if anyone sins, we have an Intercessor with the Father, יהושע Messiah, a righteous One. 2 And He Himself is an atoning offering for our sins, and not for ours only but also for all the world. 3 And by this we know that we know Him, if we guard His commands.*n1 (see 3:6) 4 The one who says, “I know Him,” and does not guard His commands, is a liar, and the truth is not in him. 5 But whoever guards His Word, truly the love of Elohim has been perfected*n2 (Gen. 17:1, Ps. 119:1, Mt. 5:48.) in him. By this we know that we are in Him.*n3 (see 3:24)6 The one who says he stays in Him ought himself also to walk, even as He walked.

    To guard Messiah’s commands, is to guard Yahuah Elohim’s commands, because that’s what Messiah was teaching…see also James 4:1-8: “Adulterers and adulteresses! Do you not know that friendship with the world is enmity with Elohim? Whoever therefore intends to be a friend of the world makes himself an enemy of Elohim.”

    Paul, through Messiah, gave us warning as well; II Cor 6:14-18

    14 Do not become unevenly yoked with unbelievers. For what partnership have righteousness and lawlessness? And what fellowship has light with darkness? 15 And what agreement has Messiah with Beliya‛al? Or what part does a believer have with an unbeliever? 16 And what union has the Dwelling Place of Elohim with idols? For you are a Dwelling Place of the living Elohim, as Elohim has said, “I shall dwell in them and walk among them, and I shall be their Elohim, and they shall be My people.” 17 Therefore, “Come out from among them and be separate, says יהוה, and do not touch what is unclean, and I shall receive you. 18 “And I shall be a Father to you, and you shall be sons and daughters to Me, says יהוה the Almighty.”

    So, the ‘church’ is nothing more that a govt instituted organization, hiding behind a govt protection scheme of the 501(c)3….so, it’s looking to govt for protection, not their Elohim, and at the same time, capitulating to govt in accepting the homosexual/queer agenda….some of which literally are and have come saying that these such were supposedly born this way, when in actuality, it’s a very personal choice to act and carry on in such perversity….all will stand before the Throne of Messiah and His Abba to give account…..think about that…

  • Andrew Nielsen

    What?…..I come here earlier, speak truth from the scriptures and you delete it?…….now, that’s what I call Blasphemy…..you’re not silencing me, your silencing Yahusha Ha Moshiach, you’re not rejecting me, you’re rejecting Messiah, you’re also silencing and censoring my 1st Amendment Right to free speech, and freedom of “religion”, of course none of you would consider your walk with Messiah as mere religion…..or would you…..you are truly no better than those who are condoning such perversities…..btw, I have copies of my comments, but seeing how no one here wants truth from scripture and what your Elohim says about these behaviors….I feel bad for you all…

  • Andrew Nielsen

    Luke 17:28-30

    28 “And likewise, as it came to be in the days of Lot: They were eating, they were drinking, they were buying, they were selling, they were planting, they were building, 29 but on the day Lot went out of Seḏom it rained fire and sulphur from heaven and destroyed all. 30 “It shall be the same in the day the Son of Aḏam is revealed.

    They were also engaged in homosexuality and other such perversities…..see the account in Beresheeth/Gen 18:17-19:26…..but the verse(s) I speak of, and about what was said and done, is in verses 4, 5….

    4 Before they lay down, the men of the city, the men of Seḏom, both old and young, all the people from every part, surrounded the house. 5 And they called to Lot and said to him, “Where are the men who came to you tonight? Bring them out to us, and let us ‘know’ them.”

    It will be far more tolerable for Seḏom and Amorah in the day of judgement, than for this and other countries that condone and support such vile behavior….

    Remember, people in the South were using very similar Biblical rationale in expressing their rage and fury over LBJ imposing the Civil Rights Act.

    Race-mixing goes against God’s will, you said.

    God put them in different continents for a reason, you said.

    States’ rights, you said.

    You told the story of Ham, and how it was God’s decree what African-Americans were inferior.

    Of course, 50 years later, a majority of Christians do acknowledge that racial bigotry was wrong, Jim Crow and “separate but equal” were wrong, and using the Bible to validate this bigotry and segregation were especially wrong. I acknowledge that some Christians, particularly in the South, still don’t see a problem with it, but a majority have advanced.

    And now here you are, using the very same arguments when all that is being asked is that LBTG people be afforded the same basic civil rights as you.

    Same fundamentalism, same part of the country, same old bigotry. Is it part of the evangelical Southern DNA that you have to hate *somebody* in order to feel better about yourself?
