FRC: Court Tells Ohio Parents: Accept Your Child’s ‘Gender Identity’ or Lose Custody

Friday, February 16th, 2018

Judge Sylvia Hendon.

Folks, more evidence here that newfangled “rights” based on sexual perversion and extreme gender confusion naturally war against real, God-given liberties, parental rights and historic Judeo-Christian religion. Here are some good words from Family Research Council president Tony Perkins on two of the latest LGBTQ-activists assaults on normality and faith.

Obviously, the escalating pro-LGBTQ campaign against the Detroit church is intended to intimidate other churches from pursuing their biblical calling of godly transformation through Jesus Christ. — Peter LaBarbera, AFTAH; Twitter: @PeterLaBarbera

Court: Accept Your Child’s New Gender or Lose Custody

By Tony Perkins, Family Research Council “Washington Update”

February 16, 2018

This week, a shocking story hit the national news about an Ohio teenager who was removed from her parents’ home by authorities. Why? Because they didn’t support their daughter’s decision to identify as a boy and declined to authorize hormone therapy to facilitate her gender “transition.” Today, the story broke that Juvenile Court Judge Sylvia Hendon has permanently removed the child from her parents’ custody (despite the fact that the child is already 17 and would be able to make medical decisions for herself in less than a year).

What’s especially alarming is that a lawyer representing the child — as well as Donald Clancy of the Hamilton County Prosecutor’s Office — cited the parents’ religious beliefs as an argument for robbing them of their rights! The mom and dad are being criticized for seeking out a Christian therapist for their daughter and for daring to send her to Catholic school. Even so, the parents were clear that their stance on the gender transition wasn’t motivated on faith alone. After all, they pointed out, they’d had lengthy consultations with medical professions and did hours of research on their own. Only then did they come to the conclusion that “this is not in their child’s best interest.” (The American College of Pediatricians — not to be confused with the more “politically correct” American Academy of Pediatrics — agrees.)

For years, LGBT activists have scoffed at warnings from FRC and others that the radical LGBT movement poses a threat to personal and religious freedom. In the past, the Left directed most of its attacks on religious expression in the public square, doing everything it could to restrict faith to the four walls of your house or church. Now, even that tolerance is tumbling down.

I wrote yesterday about the shocking attack by two Michigan state legislators against a church in metropolitan Detroit that offered an “Unashamed Identity Workshop” for teen girls struggling with their sexual orientation or gender identity. It’s becoming ever clearer that if we don’t fight to defend our liberties everywhere, they will not be safe from attack anywhere — not even in your church or your home.

CPAC Bans Pro-Family Group MassResistance as Exhibitor – LaBarbera Urges Decision Be Reversed

Tuesday, February 13th, 2018

Folks, last week I was stunned to learn that CPAC, the annual Conservative Political Action Conference, had reversed itself and banned the pro-family organization MassResistance from having an Exhibition Table. This is the same CPAC which now is allowing homosexual activist Republicans–the Log Cabin Republicans, to be Exhibitors. MassResistance is run by my good friend, Brian Camenker, who is a hero for standing up to homosexual and transgender activists for over the last 25 years and never backing down.

The same cannot be said of CPAC. It is simply unconscionable for a “conservative” organization to welcome in homosexual activists while banishing the leading national grassroots organization fighting the LGBTQ (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Queer) lobby. That is why I have called on the American Conservative Union, which runs CPAC, to reverse its decision and allow MassResistance to have a booth.

AFTAH’s predecessor, the newsletter Lambda Report, was launched at CPAC 25 years ago, so this latest politically correct absurdity really hurts personally. As we predicted, out-and-proud homosexuality is now corrupting conservatism and Christianity; it is incompatible with both. After hearing of the action against my friend, I have applied and paid for an Exhibitors Booth at CPAC.  We’ll see what happens. In the meantime, please contact ACU and urge them to reverse this terrible decision.

MassResistance table BANNED from CPAC – after having been accepted. Because of our 2015 comments about the “culture war”

But LGBT group “Log Cabin Republicans” is allowed!

Is the “Conservative Political Action Conference” really conservative?

February 13, 2018, by Mass Resistance

The Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC), the oldest and largest annual “conservative” conference in America, has abruptly banned MassResistance from having an exhibit at its 2018 session. The conference begins next week, running Feb. 21-24. CPAC had officially approved MassResistance for a table on January 29, after an involved vetting process.

But last week CPAC Executive Director Dan Schneider notified MassResistance that the decision has been reversed because of our Biblical approach to fighting the “culture war” (particularly the transgender agenda in public schools) as described in a 2015 speech by MassResistance president Brian Camenker.
