The lunacy and harm of ‘LGBTIQ+ pride’

Monday, July 1, 2019, 9:10 am | Randy Thomasson

When you see national companies promoting “LGBT” or “LGBTQ” or “LGBTIQ” or “LGBTIQA+” “Pride” — and hijacking Creator God’s rainbow in the process — you should question it and put it to the test.

Because no one should be proud to trample what’s good, right, and true; or lead astray vulnerable children; or harm people’s health; or unfairly discriminate against your God-given rights. 

And it’s categorically unkind to do bad to others, by pushing what’s bad for a person, bad for children and families, and bad for our culture, nation, and world. To be kind is to give God’s goodness to others, with standards that emanate from the Bible. But pushing bad consequences upon people is always bad, no matter the deceptive or delusional smiles of the pushers.

Therefore, Starbucks, Target, and other national or local businesses pushing “LGBTQ Pride” are being unkind and spreading false information, which is neither something they should be proud of, nor should it motivate you to spend your dollars at their establishments.

Q: Are homosexuality, bisexuality, and transsexuality true or false?
A: They are false.

Both science and the Word of God agree there’s no such thing as a “gay gene” — no biological basis to “LGBTIQ” whatsoever. It’s a delusional lie of the establishment to claim there’s any kind of sexual intercourse beyond man-woman sexual intercourse, or to claim there’s more than the two sexes of male and female. For they just don’t exist.

Homosexual researcher Simon LeVay, on his search for the “gay gene”:
“It’s important to stress what I didn’t find … I did not prove that homosexuality is genetic, or find a genetic cause for being gay. I didn’t show that gay men are ‘born that way,’ the most common mistake people make in interpreting my work. Nor did I locate a gay center in the brain.”

American Psychological Association backtracks on claim of “gay gene”:
A publication from the American Psychological Association includes an admission that there is no “gay” gene, according to a doctor who has written about the issue on the website of National Association for Research & Therapy of Homosexuality.

A. Dean Byrd, the past president of NARTH, confirmed that the statement from the American Psychological Association came in a brochure that updates what the APA has advocated for years.

Specifically, in a brochure that first came out about 1998, the APA stated: “There is considerable recent evidence to suggest that biology, including genetic or inborn hormonal factors, play a significant role in a person’s sexuality.”

However, in the update: a brochure now called, “Answers to Your Questions for a Better Understanding of Sexual Orientation & Homosexuality,” the APA’s position changed.

The new statement says:

“There is no consensus among scientists about the exact reasons that an individual develops a heterosexual, bisexual, gay or lesbian orientation. Although much research has examined the possible genetic, hormonal, developmental, social, and cultural influences on sexual orientation, no findings have emerged that permit scientists to conclude that sexual orientation is determined by any particular factor or factors. Many think that nature and nurture both play complex roles. …”

“Although there is no mention of the research that influenced this new position statement, it is clear that efforts to ‘prove’ that homosexuality is simply a biological fait accompli have failed,” Byrd wrote. “The activist researchers themselves have reluctantly reached that conclusion. There is no gay gene. There is no simple biological pathway to homosexuality.”

And transsexuality? This is even more of a delusion, because using medical instruments to cut off healthy body parts, which you can’t get back, is obviously not natural. See SaveCalifornia.com’s Science of the Sexes.

Conclusion: Homosexuality, bisexuality, and transsexuality have no biological basis, so no one can legitimately claim they were “born that way” or “God made me this way” or they’re “being true” to themselves by engaging in these contrived identities and harmful behaviors. The vast bulk of evidence is that homosexuality, and transsexuality are caused by childhood traumas, which many homosexuals and transsexuals freely admit happened in their pasts. In addition, the continual adding of new behaviors is nonsensical.

Consider the latest acronym, “LGBTIQA+“, which is continually expanding into labeling more behaviors as “natural.” For if “love is love” (i.e. subjectively defined, meaning that anything one desires or wants sexually must be accepted), no one can any longer oppose “sex” with children, animals, and corpses. For if one claims one was “born” with these desires, and the public must accept these claims without a shred of evidence, opponents to these behaviors have to be labeled “prudish” or “____phobic.” Because all moral standards and scientific evidence have been discarded to society’s own peril. This is ludicrous and violates all objective standards of logic, evidence, and reason.

Q: Does homosexual, bisexual, or transsexual behavior threaten one’s health?
A: Yes

The prevalence of sexually transmitted diseases (syphilis, gonorrhea, chlamydia, HPV, Hepatitis A, B and C) are higher among homosexuals. And CDC’s own statistics show how HIV/AIDS is nearly exclusively a homosexual disease. 

At least 63% and as much as 91% of HIV/AIDS infections transmitted by “male-to-male sexual contact”
Approximately 1.1 million persons in the United States are living with HIV infection [1]. In 2010, the estimated number of new HIV infections was 47,500: of those, 63% were attributed to male-to-male sexual contact, 25% to heterosexual contact, 8% to injection drug use, and 3% to male-to-male sexual contact and injection drug use [2] [Note: According to this CDC report, “All the participants had at least 1 male sex partner,” including those males who “self-identified as heterosexual”]
CDC, HIV Surveillance Special Report: Men Who Have Sex with Men, 20 U.S. Cities, 2011

In addition, biological men who delusionally think they’re women (the establishment calls them “transgender women) have an HIV infection rate nearly 50 times higher than other adults. Is this behavior healthy and worth promoting, or unhealthy and worth discouraging?

Homosexuals also experience higher rates of cancer and lower overall health as a cancer survivors:

Link between sexual orientation and cancer
“Homosexual men were found to be 1.9 times more likely to self-report a cancer diagnosis than were heterosexual men … Although homosexual women did not have a higher incidence of cancer, these women did report lower overall health as cancer survivors compared to heterosexual women.”

Prostate cancer survival may be especially tough on gay men

Conclusion: From a straightforward health perspective, homosexuality, bisexuality, and transsexuality invite sexually transmitted diseases, as well as higher cancer rates. As a matter of public health, these sexual behaviors should be discouraged.

Q: Does the “LGBTIQ+” political agenda trample your constitutional rights?
A: Yes.

In the Constitution of the United States of America, the First Amendment guarantees you freedom of religion, freedom of speech (and freedom of association, which emanates from free speech).

And pre-Constitutional rights for your enjoyment include parental rights and property rights (ownership rights, contract rights, etc.).

Yet time and time again, laws have been made and rulings handed down, that permit the homosexual/transsexual agenda to trample property and business owners, parental rights, religious freedom, and even freedom of speech and association.

But homosexuality, bisexuality, and transsexuality aren’t in the U.S. Constitution. And where the 5th and 14th Amendments mention the important individual rights of “life, liberty, or property,” the legislative and historical records clearly show that “liberty” means protection from being imprisoned or physically restrained (think a jail cell, or house arrest, or wooden stocks) without due process of law. Therefore, “liberty” did not and does not mean the power to redefine marriage or to trample other people’s constitutional rights or to do whatever you want.

Conclusion: A clear reading of the U.S. Constitution and its legislative and historical records shows us a list of guaranteed rights for individual citizens in the U.S. states. Nowhere in the Constitution are “coupleship” rights or the “rights” of homosexuality, bisexuality, transsexuality or other behaviors. “Gay rights” and “LGBT rights” are made up and used by unconstitutional politicians and judges to squash the constitutional rights of those who cannot support the “LGBT” agenda in good conscience. Furthermore, the only ways to amend the U.S. Constitution is by a two-thirds vote of Congress and three-fifths vote of the individual States, or by a Constitutional Convention.

Q: Does homosexuality, bisexuality, or transsexuality qualify as a “civil right” or “protected class”?
A: No.

To be a “civil right,” the identifying physical characteristic of a “protected class” must be inborn (existing from birth) or an admitted handicap.

The U.S. government’s “protected class” definition is as follows:

“The groups protected from the employment discrimination by law. These groups include men and women on the basis of sex; any group which shares a common race, religion, color, or national origin; people over 40; and people with physical or mental handicaps. Every U.S. citizen is a member of some protected class, and is entitled to the benefits of EEO law. However, the EEO laws were passed to correct a history of unfavorable treatment of women and minority group members.”

It’s a fact that your inborn sex chromosomes (XX female or XY male), race, and age are physical characteristics that you cannot change. And physical or mental handicaps are declared impairments and weaknesses that are unchangeable unless there is healing and recovery.

Conclusion: Because homosexuality, bisexuality, and transsexuality neither have a biological basis nor are unchangeable (people have changed in and out of, and left behind former practices identified with “LGBTIQ,” etc.), these sexual behaviors cannot qualify as a “civil right” or a “protected class” on the same level as race, ethnicity, national origin, even physical disability. If permitted, then any behavior can eventually achieve “civil rights” status, dominating and trampling any reasonable dissent, religious value, or ownership right. This would produce a decidedly uncivilized — and very unsafe — culture.

Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil;
Who put darkness for light, and light for darkness;
Who put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!

Why did Michael Jackson and Farrah Fawcett die?

Wednesday, July 8, 2009, 6:02 pm |

It’s sad when anyone dies young. Human beings created in the image of God are precious, and life is indeed a gift of God.

In the Middle Ages, dying in your 50s and 60s was common. But better food, cleaner water, and modern research, surgery, prevention techniques and medicine have today made 77.7 years the average life expectancy in the United States.

Many people were shocked that Michael Jackson died at age 50 and Farah Fawcett at age 62. But modern medicine could not have prevented what these celebrities did to themselves. It was Jackson’s and Fawcett’s own behavior that led to their relatively short lives.

This sober truth should serve as a warning to young people: don’t get hooked on prescription drugs or other artificial substances, don’t engage in sexual activity before marriage, don’t get your value from the attention that people lavish upon you, etc.

The faces of Michael Jackson and Farrah Fawcett are in the grocery-store stands and are saturating the media. Young and old, churched and unchurched, are talking about them.

I’ve researched these facts to empower you with knowledge so that you can talk with young people, to warn them about the wrong way to live. For, as poet and philosopher George Santayana said, “Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.”

Michael Jackson

As a child, Michael Jackson’s identity was damaged by his father and never restored. In his 30+ years of adult independence, the “king of pop” made a series of horrible lifestyle choices that led to his early demise. Outliving Jackson is his father (age 80) and his mother (age 79). Read more

Why Carrie Prejean lost her earthly crown

Thursday, June 11, 2009, 5:43 pm |

First, a homosexual activist “judge” kept Carrie Prejean from winning the Miss USA contest.

Next, the homosexual “marriage” activists who led the California pageant tried to get Carrie fired, but Donald Trump said no.

Finally, the homosexual activist director of the Miss California Pageant persisted and got rid of Carrie.

Keith Lewis, the director of the Miss California USA Pageant, is an open homosexual and obviously very insecure. After Carrie said on national TV on April 19 that marriage is only for a man and a woman, Lewis said he was personally offended. For weeks, he campaigned unprofessionally, publicly and continually attacking Carrie and aggressively lobbied Donald Trump to fire her.

Lewis’ anti-natural-marriage campaign showed its venom on May 11. That’s when Lewis and then-co-director Shanna Moakler (who strongly believes in homosexual “marriage” and was a Playboy centerfold) held a Beverly Hills news conference blasting Carrie for “unauthorized” speaking engagements at her church and at a traditional marriage news conference, as well as Carrie’s lingerie and swimsuit photos, and called for her to be fired.

The next day, May 12, pageant owner Donald Trump directed everyone to “make nice” and said Carrie would keep her crown. But what does oil have in common with water or light in common with dark? The 12-page contract Carrie signed is horrible and gave Keith Lewis so much power over her.

The day after the “unity event” in New York, Moakler and Lewis came back to California. That same day, Moakler resigned from her pageant post to protest Carrie keeping her crown. And Lewis began “keeping a file” on Carrie in an effort to eventually fire her himself.

That takes us to now.

There’s every indication that Lewis had daggers in his eyes for Carrie ever since she said she doesn’t believe in homosexual “marriage” like he does.

And there is evidence that Lewis tried to muzzle Carrie from speaking at events of her choosing. Email transcripts between Carrie and Lewis suggest he had a problem with her speaking at the Special Olympics, while, at the same time, suggesting she pose for Playboy and appear on grungy “reality TV” shows.

On Thursday, I listened to Carrie on the Sean Hannity radio show, who now has the help of pro-family attorney Chuck LiMandri, who’s issued a statement accusing Keith Lewis of fabricating his claims.

On the show, Carrie said Lewis wanted her to attend a documentary promoting gay “marriage” at the Sundance Film Festival and she refused. “If I’m in breach of contract because I didn’t go to a gay event, so be it,” she said.

As for the Playboy magazine offer, Carrie says this “shows their hidden agenda…they wanted me to break to the contract [prohibiting nude and semi-nude photos]…they wanted me out from day one….I have the email to prove it.”

“This is happening to me because of my stance on gay marriage,” Carrie said. “It’s not because of the contract…It’s really taught me how intolerant some people can be…It’s not right and it’s just plain wrong what’s happened to me.”

I agree. The big picture here is the blatant intolerance of the homosexual agenda, which PUNISHES anyone who disagrees with them.

If Carrie were my sister, I would have encouraged her to quit a few weeks ago. She had “appealed” the bad conduct of her boss Keith Lewis to a higher judge, Donald Trump, the owner of the pageant. But Lewis kept his job and kept targeting Carrie. Apparently, the animosity of a homosexual activist against those who disagree will never agree to peace. 

Quitting would have put Carrie in the driver’s seat. She could have told America how she stood on principle about her public appearances and had to quit rather than give up her principles. Why agree to have your free speech controlled by a homosexual activist who hates you and targets you for your stand on marriage?

But look what’s happened. Keith Lewis and Carrie’s detractors aggressively rode the media circuit the first 24 hours of this story. While Carrie was hiding from the media that day and turning down interview requests, she was publicly labeled a contract-breaker. By not anticipating the firing and not doing media, Carrie was called the bad guy and the homosexual activists cheered. Twenty-two-year-old Carrie needs better public relations advisors!

To many, this is a case of “he said, she said.” America clearly witnessed and understood the first intolerant homosexual attack from Perez Hilton upon Carrie during the Miss USA Pageant. But now that another homosexual activist, Pageant Director Keith Lewis, has attacked Carrie on a technicality, which involves details about public appearances that are cloudy or at least unclear. America can’t correctly judge this.

Through it all, Carrie has been given an incredible platform and opportunity to speak for God’s truth. My hope is that Carrie will seek God’s biblical wisdom for her next step. Personally, I would like to see her reject fleshy beauty pageants and the lusty photos she’s posed in, which, so far, she’s defended. It would be helpful to America for her to write a book that honors what God created – the natural family and moral standards for sexuality – and championing the American ethic of free speech.

But most of all, I hope Carrie will take some time to grow deeper in her faith and in everything seek to be a holy example for girls and young women. I don’t want teen girls to dream about strutting on stage for a beauty contest or taking risqué photos or getting breast implants like Carrie did. God created women to be much better than that.

Get a healthy perspective on the topic of outer beauty versus inner beauty. Listen to the SaveAmerica.com Radio Show with former model Jennifer Strickland. This is a very stimulating discussion to help women develop a true identity and give up their false identities. (Men, you need to hear this too, to understand the women and girls in your family.)

Charm is deceptive, and beauty is fleeting;
but a woman who fears the LORD is to be praised.
