From the “I am not making this up category” . . .

I really wish I was making this up.  Public schools in California (yeah, it is a freak state, but many of these things spread to the rest of the country) are teaching children as young as 5 about how “normal” transgenderism is.  This is state sanctioned, taxpayer-funded child abuse.  I know this goes on, but it is always extra-creepy to see it on video.  To state the obvious, this is one more reason to seriously consider home-schooling.

From Coming to a Public School Near YOU?

Fox News covered a class full of kindergartners in California being taught that you can feel like a girl, feel like a boy, feel like both, or feel like neither.

. . .

The group brought in to teach children these lessons (allegedly to prevent bullying) is called Gender Spectrum.

“People can be girls, feel like girls, they can feel like boys, they can feel like both, and they can even feel, like I said, kinda like neither.”

Hey theological Liberals and wimpy orthodox Christians who caved to the political correctness of the gay lobby pressure instead of standing up for the truth: Congratulations, this is what you’ve enabled.   As predicted many times, this is a logical consequence of supporting civil rights for sexual preferences.

Remember, you don’t need to poison the minds of kids to teach them not to bully.  All you need is a simple and thoroughly enforced anti-bullying policy: If you physically or verbally harass other students on or off school grounds you will have swift and serious consequences. It doesn’t matter if you are bullying because they are gay/straight/fat/thin/smart/dumb/pretty/ugly/etc., or if it is just because you are a mean jerk. Lesson over.

Divorce and bullying and childhood obesity

In a national study of nearly 2,500 Norwegian boys and girls ages 12 to 15 published in the November issue of European Child and Adolescent Psychiatry, researchers found a substantial statistical correlation between both victims and aggressors of bullying and parental divorce.

Given that both victims and aggressors of bullying, relative to their noninvolved peers, were also found to experience more psychological problems, the parental-divorce link should not be surprising.

The distress of parental breakup, the Norwegian researchers claim, leaves adolescents emotionally vulnerable and therefore easy targets for bullies among their peers.

At the same time, parental divorce incubates bullying by leaving adolescents, according to study, with “less monitoring, often fewer adults to confide in, and sometimes increased aggression because of feelings of loss.”

From my other blog, The UCC’s lead marketing tool: Encouraging sin.

It is so repulsive to see their blasphemy in claiming to speak for God in contradiction to his revealed word.  And to make their tagline into a gay pride flag is even worse.

. . .

Is it any surprise that the UCC keeps shrinking?  They work so hard to conform to the world, but the world just chalks that up as a victory and ignores them.  Why join a group that just tells you what you already “know?”

Planned Parenthood of IL tries to scrub claim that mandatory child sex abuse reporting would overtax the system – It is bad enough that they tried to fight this reporting.  But consider their underlying claim: They concede that there is a huge amount of child sex abuse that needs to be reported!  This is a vile organization that should not receive taxpayer funding.

Also see how 100% of Illinois Planned Parenthood clinics were willing to hide statutory rape.

So George Soros has funded NPR for years.  Shocking, eh?  Reminds me of how Jim “the Gospel is all about wealth redistributionWallis lied about saying that he didn’t know Soros had given his group hundreds of thousands of dollars.

One of the ways Darwin is defended:

… many members of the militant atheist set will often write “canned” reviews of a book with either minimal reading or no reading whatsoever. Most actual users of Amazon will give such “reviews” a negative vote. However, the goal of these writers is not so much to provide their particular slant on the book as it is to try to crowd out serious or thoughtful reviews on a topic they dislike. To further this end, they post a link to their reviews on various “science” (read materialist) and atheist websites asking for what Amazon calls “campaign” votes. If one of these negative reviews gets enough votes, it is then featured on the Amazon page as “Spotlight” review. To hold all the spotlight review positions effectively crowds out the thoughtful reviews (which then appear in abbreviated form on the side margin) and the militant set achieves their goal.

How charming.  And dishonest.  I suppose they haven’t evolved to seeing how honesty benefits humanity yet.

The shame is unbearable – a warning to those considering abortion, and hope for those who have had them.  Despite the lies of the pro-legalized abortionists, post-abortion trauma is real.  There is hope and healing available in Jesus.

Prayers for the persecuted – Christian persecution continues around the world.
