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!

Isaiah 5:20



A tremendous California victory for publicly honoring Creator God

Saturday, June 8, 2019, 9:41 am | Randy Thomasson

The biggest pro-family victories in California so far this month are the successful campaigns to put “In God We Trust” on police vehicles in Kern County, just north of Los Angeles County.

Enjoy these photos from my two-day tour to battle alongside these three pastors who spearheaded their city campaigns and won great victories. I highly commend them for being outstanding examples of “standing your ground and not backing down.”

Godly pastors: Justin Medlock of Shafter, David Vivas of Delano, Angelo Frazier of Bakersfield, and myself, on June 4, after we testified to the Shafter City Council.

Bakersfield’s ‘In God We Trust’ leader: Pastor Angelo Frazier, doing a TV interview, on May 22, the day he proposed adding our national motto to police and fire vehicles.  

Encouraging Christians to put their light on a stand: Here’s Pastor Angelo Frazier with a Christian man prior to the June 5 Bakersfield City Council meeting. He encouraged this man to speak, which he eventually did in front of the council, audience, and media.

Public perseverance: Both Christians and atheists at the June 5 Bakersfield City Council meeting. You can see Pastor Frazier and me in the first row. After 2 hours of testimony, the council voted 4 to 2 (Republicans for, Democrats against) to place “In God We Trust” on police and fire vehicles. The news quickly spread nationwide.

Even liberal media get to see ‘In God We Trust’: Bakersfield TV news people were waiting to interview Pastor Frazier after our great moral victory inside City Hall.

Basking in victory: Caring enough to show up for this winnable battle, these Bakersfield Christians celebrate with Pastor Frazier, along with me and Pastor Medlock from Shafter.

Glorying God in Shafter, California: On June 4, Pastor Justin Medlock testified, sharing how a Christian cop helped him repent from drug use and clean up his life with the help of Jesus Christ’s Holy Spirit. He knows that “In God We Trust” on police cars will do good!

Christians are coming out of the closet: Here’s Pastor Medlock with two brothers who own a design and print shop, who’ve offered to pay for the “In God We Trust” decals in both Delano and Shafter, overcoming an atheist objection of taxpayer expense.

He started it all: Pastor David Vivas used his influence with his city’s mayor to propose that Delano be the first California city to place “In God We Trust” on police vehicles. Like the spark of the American Revolution, Pastor Vivas’ bold action on April 2 was a “shot heard round the world.” Pastor Vivas says his Christianity compels him to publicly shine his light. 

Christian values benefit everybody: On June 5, I had the privilege of meeting with Pastor Vivas and Delano Mayor Joe Aguirre, a very strong advocate of “In God We Trust.”

“You are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hidden.
Nor do they slight a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a lampstand,
and it gives light to all who are in the house.”

Jesus Christ, the Savior of the world, in Matthew 5:14-15


Will Bakersfield honor Creator God on police vehicles?

Saturday, May 25, 2019, 10:38 am | Randy Thomasson
Bakersfield city councilwoman Jacquie Sullivan, founder of the “In God We Trust” campaign

June 6, 2019 update — Bakersfield City Council approves “In God We Trust” on police and fire vehicles! See more on this significant win on SaveCalifornia.com’s Facebook page.

Did you know “In God We Trust” was first engraved on coins in the United States of America in 1864? 

And despite legal challenges by atheists, the federal appellate courts have upheld “In God We Trust” as completely constitutional (as they should — a no-brainer).

On April 2, Pastor David Vivas of Delano (a city near the north border of Kern County) spearheaded the Delano city council’s approval of “In God We Trust” on the sides of police vehicles. The city council approved the idea and decals are being designed now.

There are more than 100 California cities and counties that already have “In God We Trust” prominently displayed either on one, some, or all of their local government buildings. Our national motto on police vehicles is as constitutional as “In God We Trust” on our money.

Then, on May 22 in Bakersfield, Pastor Angelo Frazier and City Councilwoman Jacquie Sullivan led the way to put a vote for “In God We Trust” on city police vehicles on the June 5 Bakersfield city council agenda. Atheists, who hate “In God We Trust” on U.S. currency, spoke against it.

TAKE ACTION

Right now, your voice of support for “In God We Trust” is needed so Creator God’s Name can be publicly honored. SaveCalifornia.com makes it simple to take action:

It’s easy for you to email the 7 Bakersfield city councilmembersWithout revealing where you live, simply click this link to send a pre-written email (which you can edit), reading:

Please vote YES to approve “In God We Trust” decals on the sides of police vehicles in the City of Bakersfield. It’s our national motto, it’s on Bakersfield city buildings, and it’s a much-needed message in our culture today. People young and old will benefit, as will our public servants who are sworn to uphold the law for the good of everyone. Please vote in favor of this worthy proposal to honor our national motto, which, in turn, honors the Creator of us all. Thank you.

And if you live within the city limits of Bakersfield, please also call the city council main phone number at 661-326-3767. You can easily leave a brief voicemail, saying, “This is for all seven councilmembers,” then deliver the rest of your message, saying “Councilmembers,” (then read the pre-written message or use your own words). You can also call during the week to leave live messages with city staff (which could be more complicated). Please do what you can to stir up more calls of support in Bakersfield, in church congregations and from others who share your values. Remember, the city council will vote on June 5.


The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom, 
And the knowledge of the Holy One is understanding.

Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter:
Fear God and keep His commandments,
For this is man’s all.
For God will bring every work into judgment,
Including every secret thing,
Whether good or evil.
