Convicted Army Private Bradley Manning, Who Now Presents Himself as a Woman, Announces Run for U.S. Senate

NORTH BETHESDA, Md. — Convicted Army Private Bradley Manning, who declared “I am a female” and changed his name to Chelsea in 2013 after being sentenced to prison for leaking classified information to Wikileaks, has announced his run for the U.S. Senate.

“Yup, we’re running for Senate,” Manning tweeted on Sunday, receiving 9,000 likes as of press time.

He also shared a campaign video that likewise announced his candidacy and criticized the status quo in Washington. (View below.)

“We need to stop expecting that our systems will somehow fix themselves. We need to actually take the reins of power from them. We need to challenge them at every level,” it states. “We need to fix this. We don’t need them anymore. We can do better. You’re [expletive] right, we got this.”

USA Today reports that Manning filed the paperwork on Thursday, and will be running as a Democrat. The seat is currently held by Sen. Ben Cardin, who serves on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee.

Manning has been critical of the authorities on Twitter, recently writing “[expletive] the police” on Law Enforcement Appreciation Day, and “Police and prosecutors steal more through ‘civil asset forfeiture’ than all ‘property crime’ combined.” He also called Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) “the new gestapo,” using the hashtag #abolishICE.”

Manning, who had been arrested in 2010 after releasing “more than 700,000 documents, including battlefield reports and U.S. Embassy cables” to Wikileaks, was released from prison in May after his 35-year sentence was commuted by then-President Barack Obama.

Manning

In 2015, the military approved Manning’s request to obtain hormone treatments for gender reassignment as he had changed his name to Chelsea and wanted to present himself as a woman. The decision came in light of a lawsuit in which it was alleged that the Army was not doing enough to address his gender dysphoria, and that if he did not receive the treatment, he was at high risk for suicide.

“As I transition into this next phase of my life, I want everyone to know the real me,” Manning said in a statement in 2013. “I am Chelsea Manning. I am a female. Given the way that I feel, and have felt since childhood, I want to begin hormone therapy as soon as possible.”

Word that Manning was running for Congress drew mixed response over the weekend.

“I really hope she wins. Just think how awesome it would be to watch Mike Pence have to swear her in,” one commenter wrote.

“Chelsea Manning belongs in prison, not the U.S. Senate. He’s a disgrace to our country and to the men and (real) women who have fought and died for it,” another remarked.

“Oh Bradley, you are so confused and lost, and you need help,” a third stated.

  • Lemmylemon

    I do not recognize this abomination as a woman. Bradley is a sinner that need Christ in HIS life.

    • Michael C

      What you’re doing is drawing attention to yourself so you can make a big show of your disapproval for another person. Does your religion teach you to do this? It’s like you’re waving your arms around while shouting “Look, everyone! Sinner!”

      Referring to a person by their preferred name is just basic respect. If I meet someone and they say “Hi, call me Chuck,” I would be a jerk if responded with “whatever you say, CHARLES.” When I was in school, Trang decided that she wanted to be called Emily. What did we do? We all started calling her Emily. All of us. Her friends, classmates, teachers, siblings, all of us. Because we were respectful.

      If you feel some sort of religious imperative to refuse to use a person’s preferred pronouns, you don’t have to draw attention to yourself. It’s not about you. Just use gender neutral words like they or them. Or you could simply refer to a person by their last name. What you’re doing now isn’t winning any hearts or minds.

      • Lemmylemon

        Bradley is not a woman. No matter how many times you say it. DNA and skeletal structure prove that Bradley is Bradley. Bradley is a man. I will not play make believe with a mentally ill person.
        He is he and always be he.
        If you can’t understand that you are as delusional as Bradley is.

        • SFBruce

          First of all, I seriously doubt you’ve seen the results of DNA testing on Ms. Manning. Secondly, gender is about much more than DNA results and skeletal structure. And did you know that DNA results are sometimes ambiguous with respect to gender? Lastly, societal norms regarding gender appropriate dress and hair styles have changed dramatically over time. Who’s to say what’s appropriate attire for the genders?

          • Lemmylemon

            You are as mentally ill as Bradley is. So if DNA is as questionable as a polygraph test how come it’s admissable in court.
            I’m curious to know something. Since you see nothing wrong with trannys why don’t you marry one and have a sexual relationship.

      • Amos Moses – He>i

        ROTFL …………… all this from the resident non-christian on a christian forum …… and all he does is points to himself and says “non-christian here telling you all you are wriong” …… you have no basis to call ANYTHING right or wrong or good or bad or any other thing …… “preferred pronouns” …. i do not recall any such NONSENSE in any English class i ever took …… just more of your made up gobblety-gook ….

        • Enniscorthy

          For heaven’s sake, you don’t have to judge everyone. Just don’t vote for her and move on with your life.

          • Amos Moses – He>i

            HIS life is about FORCING HIS perverted belief on the rest of us …….. with the FORCE of government ……….

          • LynnRH

            That’s exactly what he’s up to!

          • Croquet_Player

            Oh, are you being FORCED to believe Chelsea is a woman? GREAT. Oh wait, you’re not. You can still think whatever you like. Oh wow, how persecuted you are. Being FORCED to do absolutely nothing. Knock it off with the whining.

          • Amos Moses – He>i

            strawman argumentation ………..

          • Croquet_Player

            No, it isn’t, and you might want to review what a “strawman argument” actually is.

          • Amos Moses – He>i

            i already posted it …. and yes it is ……….

          • Croquet_Player

            I know what it is, and you clearly don’t. You said, and I quote: “HIS life is about FORCING HIS perverted belief on the rest of us …….. with the FORCE of government ……….” But clearly you are not being forced to believe anything. You hold your own views. As you have demonstrated here. If you HAD been forced to believe something, you would not still be calling Chelsea Manning “he”.

          • Amos Moses – He>i

            clearly that was not the straw man …….. FYI …. ROY MOORE was ………..

          • Croquet_Player

            I’m sorry, I’m afraid I simply don’t understand your comment. Roy Moore? I don’t wish to misunderstand anyone, so if you’d care to please elucidate what you mean, I’d appreciate it.

          • Amos Moses – He>i

            read the thread ………….

          • Croquet_Player

            Thank you. I read the thread. But I’m only responding to your comments to me, and I’m afraid I still don’t see how Roy Moore is relevant.

          • Amos Moses – He>i

            “HIS life is about FORCING HIS perverted belief on the rest of us …….. with the FORCE of government ……….”

            there are two of you using different straw man arguments here ….. pardon me ….. your straw man is persecution…. and no one made any argument about persecution ………… JUST YOU …..

          • Croquet_Player

            You claim you are having beliefs forced upon you, and that simply isn’t true. Because you haven’t changed your beliefs. You simply don’t agree, which of course is entirely your right. Chelsea Manning has the right to live her life entirely as she sees fit, and so do you. Neither Chelsea Manning, nor the government, is “forcing” you to do, or think, or believe anything at all in regard to Chelsea Manning.

          • Amos Moses – He>i

            nope … IF he is elected ……. because of his mental illness …… it WILL affect his judgement …… government is only about force to carry out its power ……. why is that so difficult for you to understand ……. his desire is to use that force ………… otherwise he would not be doing what he is doing …………………………..

          • Croquet_Player

            I’m afraid I don’t follow your reasoning. You think Manning is mentally ill, and has poor judgement as a result, whatever, that’s your opinion. Do you imagine that if Manning is elected, somehow you will be “forced” to change your opinion? No. You still have the right to your own opinions, no matter who’s elected, anywhere. Manning would be simply another in what I imagine is a long line of elected officials you don’t agree with. Don’t like it? Support Manning’s opponent(s). But do stop claiming you’re having “beliefs” “forced” upon you, when you’re clearly not.

          • Amos Moses – He>i

            Nope … his condition is described in the DSM5 ….. the “The Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, Fifth Edition (DSM-5)” …….. says right there, Manual of MENTAL DISORDERS ….. not an opinion ….. a MEDICAL DIAGNOSIS ……………..

            Government is the use of FORCE …… NOT an opinion …… WHAT IT IS …… what they use to enFORCE what they pass ……. even unto death …… in fact try running a red light and then not stop for the police ……. they will use ALL NECESSARY FORCE to stop you ….. up to an INCLUDING YOUR DEATH ………..

            Sorry ….. the MENTALLY ILL do not belong in that position …… MEDICAL OPINION and REALITY …………

          • Croquet_Player

            Yes, Gender dysphoria is described in the DSM. So are many other treatable conditions. Manning is receiving treatment – (by having surgery, etc.) So there’s no reason to think it will impair her mental functioning. Unless of course you think anyone who experienced a bout of depression, got treatment, and is fine now, is permanently disqualified from office. You seem to think that all conditions in the DSM render people who have them permanently disabled or ill. That simply isn’t true.

          • Amos Moses – He>i

            “Yes, Gender dysphoria is described in the DSM.”

            GOOD ….. then we agree …… MENTAL ILLNESS ………….

          • Croquet_Player

            No, we don’t agree, because you fail to distinguish between treatable conditions, and untreatable conditions, and those who have received treatment, and those who haven’t.

          • Amos Moses – He>i

            mental illness is what the DSM5 is describing ……. wanting to cut off perfectly good organs is MENTAL ILLNESS ………..

          • Croquet_Player

            Well, treatment for gender dysphoria, or any other treatable condition, is not anti-science, it’s science. A fact that seems lost upon you. And you should read about gender dysphoria, so you learn about the condition, what it is, and various methods of treatment. Because, I’m sorry to say, you seem to have little to no understanding about what it is, or how it’s treated. For one thing, people who have gender dysphoria are not considered permanently mentally ill, or “unfit for office” as you seem to assume. And “DNA” does not apply in the way you’re trying to apply it. Which you would know, if you read about the condition. Which I hope you will.

          • Amos Moses – He>i

            it is anti-science to cut off members that were there to begin with and are healthy to alter ones body to a MENTAL ILLNESS …………..

          • Croquet_Player

            You clearly do not understand gender dysphoria. Do hope you read more about it.

          • Amos Moses – He>i

            clearly you do not understand what it is to be healthy in mind, body and spirit and that surgery is NOT the answer to MENTAL ILLNESS …………

          • Croquet_Player

            And after you graduate from medical school and pass your board exams, I’m sure we’ll all welcome your informed medical opinion.

          • Amos Moses – He>i

            i have a 20 year career in medicine …. what you got ….. but that is not the standard ……

          • Amos Moses – He>i

            Bizarre fight between feminists and trans activists shows we’re at war with reality …..

            YUP ….. at war with common sense ….. if only it were common …… MENTAL ILLNESS ………

          • Croquet_Player

            Some people are at war with reality. I certainly agree with you there.

          • Amos Moses – He>i

            BIZARRE FIGHT BETWEEN FEMINISTS AND TRANS ACTIVISTS SHOWS WE’RE AT WAR WITH REALITY

            “But it has been bizarre to watch the transgender activists face off with the feminists, who are realizing that feminism is essentially an outdated dogma in a world where men can become women on a whim—and even win female awards, indicating that they are better at being women than biological women. This face-off has even turned physical in a few instances, such as when trans activists and radical feminists brawled in London’s Hyde Park last fall. More recently in Canada, feminists were outraged when a male-born trans woman was elected leader of Quebec’s largest women’s rights group, pointing out that he wasn’t “a real woman.””

          • Enniscorthy

            How is she forcing anything on you? If you don’t like her don’t vote for her…what more do you want? You can’t stop her from existing.

          • Amos Moses – He>i

            HE is seeking to be part of government …. and the only thing government does is use force ………….

          • Enniscorthy

            And when Roy Moore ran, people saw a very dangerous and destructive man and did the sensible thing and voted him out. That is how democracy works. If Chelsea Manning presents that much of a threat to you, don’t vote for her. Problem solved.

          • Amos Moses – He>i

            nope …. problem not solved ………..

          • Enniscorthy

            An admitted pedophile was kept out of government. That’s a win.

          • Amos Moses – He>i

            has nothing to do with manning and HIS problems ……….. and that is a strawman argument ……….

          • Enniscorthy

            Um, no, it’s not a strawman. You are loudly complaining about Chelsea Manning running for a government position, something she is legally allowed to do, and you seem to be saying she should not be allowed to because your religion disagrees with transgenderism. Tell me what I got wrong about your position on this matter and then I will concede that it’s a strawman.

          • Amos Moses – He>i

            was not a complaint …. it was pointing out the truth …………..

          • Enniscorthy

            No, it’s your opinion, and it’s entirely legal for Chelsea Manning to run for a political office. There is no reason she shouldn’t.

          • Amos Moses – He>i

            nope …. truth is not an opinion …….. legal has not one thing to do with being right …… and HE should not ….. he is mentally ill ……….

          • Enniscorthy

            It isn’t a fact she is mentally ill. It is your opinion. We are not bound by law to your opinion.

          • Amos Moses – He>i

            nope … HIS condition is described in the DSM5 ….. or for the FULL TITLE …… “The Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, Fifth Edition ” …. SEE …. right there ….. Manual of MENTAL DISORDERS … so …. NOT AN OPINION ……….

          • Enniscorthy

            And yet she is free to run for public office and continues to do so and no one is stopping her, so you are demonstrably wrong.

          • Amos Moses – He>i

            nope … HE is free to run for office and anyone who votes for him is WRONG ………

          • Enniscorthy

            It doesn’t matter how wrong you think they are if they run and win.

          • Amos Moses – He>i

            and thus why it is a waste of time to vote ….. if voting could change anything it would be illegal ………….

          • Enniscorthy

            And opinions are like noses, everybody has one.

          • Amos Moses – He>i

            oooo … that hurt …… lol ……….. you are a witty one …. not ……

          • Amos Moses – He>i

            and he is still mentally ill ……

          • Enniscorthy

            Even if she was, and she’s not, she can run for public office. You still lose.

          • Amos Moses – He>i

            nope ….. she can run for office and win and EVERYBODY loses ………..

          • Enniscorthy

            Your opinion. Lots of people disagree with you and think she would be fine. But thanks for finally getting her pronoun right.

          • Amos Moses – He>i

            sure …. whatever ….. IT is not a woman ………

          • Enniscorthy

            She can still run for office.

          • Amos Moses – He>i

            sure … so what ……..

          • Enniscorthy

            You seem to be suggesting she shouldn’t be allowed to.

          • Amos Moses – He>i

            people get the government they deserve ….. if he gets elected …… they will deserve what they get ………

          • Enniscorthy

            Yes they will.

          • Amos Moses – He>i

            Convicted traitor Bradley Manning’s decision to run for U.S. Senate in his new home state of Maryland violates military regulations, which still apply to his conduct as long as he remains an active duty member of the Army.

            Manning, who has undergone “gender reassignment” and now goes by the name “Chelsea,” remains on active duty as he awaits the result of an appeal of his conviction on charges related to his handing over volumes of classified information to WikiLeaks. Despite his description as a “former Army private,” he is required to be kept on an active-duty status, without pay, until the resolution of those appeals.

            The Daily Caller is reporting that Manning acknowledged this status, as well as his access to government-funded health care upon his release from the U.S. military prison in Leavenworth, Kan., following President Barack Obama’s commutation of his sentence. The report also states that engaging in political candidacy while on active duty is a violation of DOD Directive 1344.10, and in so doing is a violation of Article 92 of the Uniform Code of Military Justice. That article applies to failure to obey a lawful order or regulation.

          • Enniscorthy

            And I stopped reading after the words “convicted traitor” because obviously this isn’t an impartial news source. If you have to editorialize in your news reporting like that you’re clearly not interested in being objective.

          • Amos Moses – He>i

            he was convicted ………. denial of truth does not alter the truth ……. but i can agree with what manning did in his violation of law ………. but he still cannot hold office until he is out of the military …. and he aint ……..

          • Enniscorthy

            I don’t argue with “convicted”. I argue with “traitor”. Even if that’s what she was, you don’t use it in a news story because it shows serious bias.

          • Amos Moses – He>i

            well ….. that was what he did ………. so that is the truth ………. truth IS BIAS ….. to the truth …..

          • Enniscorthy

            Whether it made her a “traitor” is a matter of opinion, and therefore it shouldn’t appear in an objective news piece.

          • Amos Moses – He>i

            nope … what him a traitor was the conviction of the TRIAL ……….

          • Enniscorthy

            It’s still a matter of (your) opinion.

          • Amos Moses – He>i

            nope … the COURTS RULING ……….

          • Amos Moses – He>i

            What made him a traitor was the conviction of the trial ….. not that i agree with the verdict …… and i do not think i do ………. so NOT my opinion ………… FAIL ……….

          • Enniscorthy

            Show me in the court ruling where it uses the word “traitor” and we can talk. Until that time, I think you know you are overvaluing your own opinion.

          • Amos Moses – He>i

            guess you cant read what was written ….. ok ……….

          • Enniscorthy

            Guess you’re incapable of quoting the actual ruling.

          • Amos Moses – He>i

            no one said anything about Roy Moore …. but you bring it up as some false refutation ….. for you to knock down … STRAW MAN ……….

          • Enniscorthy

            Me bringing up something as an example, like Roy Moore or anyone else, isn’t a strawman. If you said you admired Roy Moore and I responded by asking you why you would want to see Roy Moore as president, THAT would be a strawman because I would be misrepresenting what you said.

          • Amos Moses – He>i

            right …. STRAW MAN …..

          • Enniscorthy

            All right, so you do not understand what a straw man argument is then. It has to do with misquoting your opponent, but it appears you will believe it means what you want it to mean.

          • Amos Moses – He>i

            right …. so when you are CAUGHT ….. all of a sudden WE do not understand …… and that is JUST YOUR opinion ……….

          • Enniscorthy

            Caught doing what, making a simple comparison which I have already explained to you is not a strawman?

          • Amos Moses – He>i

            caught setting up straw man arguments ……..

          • Enniscorthy

            No strawman argument was made by me. I didn’t misrepresent your position in any way.

          • Amos Moses – He>i

            yup …. you did ………..

          • Enniscorthy

            No, I introduced a comparison. I did not twist your words. You still do not know what a strawman argument is.

          • Amos Moses – He>i

            nope … a straw man argument …….

          • Enniscorthy

            It isn’t in any way.

          • Amos Moses – He>i

            “A straw man is a common form of argument and is an informal fallacy based on giving the impression of refuting an opponent’s argument, while actually refuting an argument that was not presented by that opponent.[1] One who engages in this fallacy is said to be “attacking a straw man”.”

            THAT BE YOU ………. and what you did ………..

          • Enniscorthy

            Um, no.
            Tell me how I refuted your argument about Roy Moore when you never even mentioned Roy Moore.
            *I* was the one who introduced the idea of Roy Moore as an example of how voting effectively removes an undesirable person. Which is what I suggested YOU do in the case of Chelsea Manning if you don’t want her to win.
            That is NOT a strawman.

            yup …. it is and yes you did ……

          • Enniscorthy

            It’s called a strawman ARGUMENT. Not strawman silence.
            You have to make an argument in order for it to qualify.
            You did not.
            That’s why you fail.

          • Amos Moses – He>i

            right ….. the comparison was the argument as you thought an attack on him would get a rise ….. and that is your failure ……..

          • Enniscorthy

            Whatever your opinion, it’s not a strawman, which is your attempt to get a rise.

        “Referring to a person by their preferred name is just basic respect. ”

        my cat was REALLY upset that the other dogs would not refer to him as a dog when my cat went to the same class for barking lessons ……….. you are a joke …..

        There are 6000 genes in the human genome that make the difference between a man and a woman.
        I doubt Bradley-Chelsea could change even one.
        It is not enough surgically transforming his dick into a pussy and eating hormones to grow breasts to become a real woman, thanks God.
        Instead you are no longer a man or a woman, only a monster.

      • HpO

        I agree with you. And yet I’m a born-again Christian.

        Good of you to input here.

        Why can’t my fellow born-again Christian brothers and sisters accept the fact that LGTBQs the world over are here to stay? Why punish them? Why deprive them?

        Just my theory, mind, but LGTBQs are the New Samaritans!

        Just evangelize them with the gospel of salvation through the crucifixion, burial and resurrection of Christ Jesus. That’s it! We’ve never been instructed by God & Jesus to go beyond that.

          “To tell a man he is a sinner without telling him what sin is, is like telling him he is under arrest without telling him what he’s charged with.”
          – Ray Comfort

          the gospel must include the law …… if there is no conviction of sin then there is nothing they have to be saved from ……. if there is nothing to be saved from then there is no need they have for the gospel or a Savior ………

          • HpO

            Bible chapter and verse, please, for these:

            (1) “The gospel must include the law”? Then show me from the gospels, epistles and revelation.

            (2) “If there is no conviction of sin then there is nothing they have to be saved from”? Then show me from the gospels, epistles and revelation.

            (3) “If there is nothing to be saved from then there is no need they have for the gospel or a Savior”? Then show me from the gospels, epistles and revelation.

          • Amos Moses – He>i

            What shall we say then? Is the law sin? Certainly not! On the contrary, I would not have known sin except through the law. For I would not have known covetousness unless the law had said, “You shall not covet (Rom. 7:7).

            all of the ten commandments are the law tell us we are in sin …… if you do not sin then you do not need a Savior …..

            When Jesus heard it, he saith unto them, They that are whole have no need of the physician, but they that are sick: I came not to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance. – Mark 2:17

            2:1 And you hath he quickened, who were dead in trespasses and sins;
            2:2 Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience:
            2:3 Among whom also we all had our conversation in times past in the lusts of our flesh, fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the mind; and were by nature the children of wrath, even as others.
            2:4 But God, who is rich in mercy, for his great love wherewith he loved us,
            2:5 Even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together with Christ, (by grace ye are saved;)
            2:6 And hath raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus:
            2:7 That in the ages to come he might shew the exceeding riches of his grace in his kindness toward us through Christ Jesus.
            2:8 For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:
            2:9 Not of works, lest any man should boast.
            -Ephesians 2

          • HpO

            Nope. None supports your notion that “the gospel must include the law”. You point only to “the law”- part, but never “the gospel”-part.

            Nice try as always.

            Oh and uh try to organize your thoughts there according to – let me simplify it for you – point (1), then point (2), and finally point (3). Those three notions were all in your original statement, yet now you’re backing out, diverting, whatever that is that you do when in a spot.

          • Amos Moses – He>i

            that was not my “notion” ……. those who do not understand the law and are unregenerate do not fall under grace ….. and they will never fall under grace until they understand the law …… if they do not understand the law then they are not capable of hearing the gospel ….. you can do whatever you like ….. your problem and not mine ….. they will not hear the law or the gospel unless and until God intervenes ……….

          • HpO

            Chapter & verse, please, corresponding with your “notion” (1), your “notion” (2), and your notion (3). And spare me the dots.

          • Amos Moses – He>i

            I am going to say that you know better than God and His method of delivering the scriptures …………………………………… God gave man the OT and THE LAW first ………….. then there was a space of 400 years where no word was given ….. THEN He delivered the GOSPELS AND GRACE ……………. and IN THAT ORDER ….. and FOR HIS REASONS …………………… But my guess is YOU have figured out A BETTER WAY ……………………………

            SEE ….. when you consider the WHOLE OF SCRIPTURE and GODS PLAN ………………….. NOT your PLAN …………………. then it is easy to see why YOUR THEOLOGY and THEONOMY is ALL MESSED UP …………….

            BUT God is still in control ….. and He will save ALL of His sheep ………. NOT because of you …… but INSPITE OF YOU ………………………………………………………………………………………………
            ……………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………. got that …..

          HpO said, “Just my theory, mind, but LGTBQs are the New Samaritans!”

          While there are some small groups, like the Westboro Baptist church, that media seem to love, because they show such hatred, that is not at all typical of churches. I have never personally seen anything but love demonstrated towards the LGTBQ community. Though, some in the LGTBQ feel that citing scripture’s declaration of their sin, is hateful. IN reality, it is normally motivated by the desire to have such people join us in our church and later in heaven.

          HpO said, “Just evangelize them with the gospel of salvation through the crucifixion, burial and resurrection of Christ Jesus. That’s it! We’ve never been instructed by God & Jesus to go beyond that.”

          We are commanded to go beyond that. And you omit repentance from your description of the Gospel. The Gospel message includes the message of repentance from sin.

          Matthew 4:16-17 The people who sat in darkness have seen a great light. And for those who lived in the land where death casts its shadow, a light has shined.” From then on Jesus began to preach, “Repent of your sins and turn to God, for the Kingdom of Heaven is near.”

          While Jesus teaches against hypocritical judging, the Body of Christ is also commanded to judge its members. They are commanded to put out from among themselves those who will not repent.

          I Cor chapter 5 has an extended treatment of sexual sin. Here are a few excerpts. v9 I wrote you in my letter not to associate with sexually immoral people. … v12 What business of mine is it to judge those outside the church? Are you not to judge those inside? v13 God will judge those outside. “Expel the wicked man from among you.”

          This judging should be motivated by love for God, his commands, and love for the individual shackled by sin.

          Galatians 6:1 Brothers and sisters, if someone is caught in a sin, you who live by the Spirit should restore that person gently. But watch yourselves, or you also may be tempted.

    Wanna bet that Bradley will probably attempt suicide if the media ever lose interest in him? It will happen, because new victims are scrambling for attention everyday.

    • jdumon

      …And the leftist media will complain that he suicided because he was bullied and scorned.

  • LynnRH

    Omgosh!!!! Lord PLEASE hurry back! This world is absolutely going to Hell!

    • Enniscorthy

      Why, because a transgendered person is running for public office? Don’t vote for her then. Simple.

      • LynnRH

        As I said…..Omgosh!!! Lord PLEASE hurry back! This world is absolutely going to Hell!

        • Enniscorthy

          And I said, “Why? Because a transgendered person is running for public office?” You want the Lord to hurry back…to do what exactly? Stop her from running?

  • jdumon

    In France a man who has been sentenced to jail is forbidden forever being candidate to a political mandate, even if he has been gracied.

    • Bob Johnson

      In the USA it is almost the opposite – Ted Stevens had seven felony accounts of corruption. Currently Joe Arpaio is also running for US Senate.

    When you put the inmates in charge of the asylum, only the sane will be called crazy…

  • SFBruce

    I would have some problems supporting her candidacy; however, it has absolutely nothing to do with the fact that she is a trans woman.

    • Lemmylemon

      You sir are a hypocrite. You can support Bradley but not his candidacy.
      Just another two faced liberal.

  • It’s not even about the LGBTQABLMEIWWPOA situation & this ‘thing’ suing my government to make us pay for their surgery, it’s the fact this ‘IT’ is a traitor. Wait a minute, calling HIM ‘it’ & ‘thing’ is exactly what HE would want so I take those pronouns back & will call him a male. HE HE HE

  • Christian

    This may sound dumb, but can somebody please explain to me how he can legally run for office if he was incarcerated? Wouldn’t the charges have been something along the lines of espionage? Even if I didn’t have an issue with the gender thing how can anybody think it would be even remotely ok to have him in any governmental office? He can’t be trusted!

    • Amos Moses – He>i

      Convicted traitor Bradley Manning’s decision to run for U.S. Senate in his new home state of Maryland violates military regulations, which still apply to his conduct as long as he remains an active duty member of the Army.

      Manning, who has undergone “gender reassignment” and now goes by the name “Chelsea,” remains on active duty as he awaits the result of an appeal of his conviction on charges related to his handing over volumes of classified information to WikiLeaks. Despite his description as a “former Army private,” he is required to be kept on an active-duty status, without pay, until the resolution of those appeals.

      The Daily Caller is reporting that Manning acknowledged this status, as well as his access to government-funded health care upon his release from the U.S. military prison in Leavenworth, Kan., following President Barack Obama’s commutation of his sentence. The report also states that engaging in political candidacy while on active duty is a violation of DOD Directive 1344.10, and in so doing is a violation of Article 92 of the Uniform Code of Military Justice. That article applies to failure to obey a lawful order or regulation.
