This week, we saw President Obama and leaders of the left proclaim on the Washington Mall that civil rights covers all kinds of sins, in stark contrast to what Martin Luther King probably meant by the “content of one’s character.”
One of those sins is the “LGBT” agenda directed to youth. That stands for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgendered.
Eliza Byard leads the group GLSEN, the Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network. In her speech at the Mall on Wednesday, she said GLSEN was fighting for millions of “LGBT” students, those seen as “different.” GLSEN believes it is “progress” to teach kids, even those in elementary school, the wide-ranging benefits of homosexual behavior and gender confusion, as if these ungodly behaviors are akin to race, as if differences like these are unchangeable and positive.
GLSEN’s most recent campaign, kicked off for the 2013-14 school year, is called “Trans-Form Your School,” to promote “Transgender Student Rights (TSR).” Sexual deviance is what liberals have to offer American children. We are seeing exactly where this can take us.
For most of the 20th century, the American government prohibited individuals with homosexual preferences from holding sensitive government posts because they were seen as security risks, vulnerable to blackmail under threat of public disclosure. That concern is now shrinking as a growing percentage of the government workforce openly proclaims a homosexual identity.
Yet there’s another red flag surrounding the same-sex-attracted person. They often display profound instability and a tendency toward childish acts of vengeance. Witness the growing list of harassment lawsuits by homosexuals and their supporters just to make a point and force ordinary Americans to honor same-sex “marriage” and homosexual behavior, all in the name of “non-discrimination.”
Enter Bradley Manning. Manning exemplifies the functional yet deeply troubled sexual deviant sometimes found in government positions and even military posts. They hate traditional America, and they are in a position to do something about it.
People or institutions espousing Judeo-Christian morality or the ethics of civilized safety and restraint are viewed by many of these folks as the de facto enemy and targets for campaigns of spite.
They learn this from their peers. Such destructive conduct is becoming standard operating procedure in progressive circles, sustained by certain leftist funders (e.g., George Soros) and encouraged by much of the media. Vicious groups and bloggers are rewarded, even put on monthly retainers, for creative, deceptive attacks on conservatives and their values. Making mountains out of molehills is a skill perfected by these professional 2-year-olds.
This includes scorn and disrespect for America’s founders, our heritage and our nation’s leadership in democratic principles. Bradley Manning is the most current example of the not infrequent intersection of deviance and treason.
As a criminal responsible for the biggest breach of highly sensitive material in American history, Manning is an individual whose actions endangered American lives and national security. He is also deeply sexually disturbed, a fact he did not try to hide from his superiors before all this happened.
They ignored the warning signs because, after all, there’s no difference between homosexuality and heterosexuality. There’s no difference between those who accept the gender God gave them and those who maintain they were “born in the wrong sex body.” We are all supposed to cooperate with this fiction and feel comfortable working beside, hiring and trusting such people.
The actions of a Bradley Manning are the predictable outcome of acute internal turmoil, and it’s not normal. It’s also not hate to say so, but an exercise of caution, reality and cultural security. Yet the Obama administration lends an ear to this nonsense and is likely to find a way to force even this depravity on our culture.
Manning has been sentenced to 35 years in prison, eligible for parole in 10 years. He wants gender reassignment medical treatment while at Fort Leavenworth prison, insisting people now call him “Chelsea,” and he’s suing to have it paid for by the U.S. government with tax revenues collected from the citizens he endangered. An unrealistic entitlement mentality is not an uncommon trait of the sexual anarchist mindset, either. All of you traditional man/woman marriage supporters, “you owe me,” is the thinking.
The Army turned him down, for now, saying it doesn’t do sex changes. Good for them, but hold on, because there’s a chance Obama will exercise “compassion” and mandate acceptance of gender-switching in the military and taxpayer-funded sex change as his latest insult to America.
Manning faces years living with several thousand male inmates at Leavenworth, and the U.S. Army may be doing him a huge favor by not giving him what he thinks he wants. Self-destructiveness is also an aspect of sexual anarchy.
So-called “transgender” individuals are at high risk of many harmful behaviors, conduct that cannot be logically attributed to societal disapproval. These include contracting HIV and other sexually transmitted disease and high levels of promiscuity. “Transgenders” are sad people dwelling in deep shame and despair, but they are not doomed to this lifestyle. Change is totally possible, as ex-transsexual Walt Heyer discovered. Yet those in influential positions can do a lot of damage if they don’t resolve their confusion and resentments. They need intense counseling to overcome their delusions.
Americans need to squarely face the damage the escalating LGBT movement is doing to our country. Their deceptive cause is based on willingness to put others at risk – children, families, businesses, communities, national security – and it’s callous and unconscionable.
We must use sound judgment and tell the Eliza Byards of America to go find something worthwhile to do. Corrupting children, convincing them it’s normal to want to amputate healthy body parts – who dreams up this stuff? It’s the substance of nightmares and should be considered child abuse.
The LGBT agenda as part of a civil rights program is an insult to our intelligence, to our nation’s character, to black civil rights pioneers and to God Almighty. And it’s a threat to our future. Those of us with sense and a conscience need to stand up and say so.
