Utah Governor Gary Herbert has announced that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS or Mormon) will now support the state’s ‘conversion therapy’ ban it had opposed earlier this year.

“Conversion therapy” is a loosely defined term used by media, politicians, and LGBTQ activists to discredit any therapy that claims to modify or change a person’s sexual behavior, i.e., from homosexuality to heterosexuality.

“These ‘therapy ban’ laws effectively kick the clients out of the driver’s seat of their own therapy and put politicians in the driver’s seat, instead. The government shouldn’t be deciding what people should do with their sexuality. Politicians have no business telling people their therapy goals are illegal. Nor do they have any business telling people that they, the politicians, know “who the client really is” and that the client’s legitimate identity must inevitably be ‘gay.'” — Dr. Joseph Nicolosi Jr.

Mormon leaders decided to support the ban after Herbert and Utah’s legislators “carefully tailored” the rule exempting LDS mental health therapists from it.

The newer version of the regulatory rule exempts LDS “clergy members or religious counselors acting in a religious capacity, or…parents or grandparents who happen to be a mental health therapist if they are talking to children or grandchildren.”

“If radical LGBT activists were so concerned about unethical practices in therapy, they would seek to ban therapeutic methods, like any method that uses shame, pain or coercion to try to change someone’s sexuality. … But that’s not what they’re doing. They’re actually outlawing treatment goals … to decrease one’s unwanted same-sex attractions in the privacy of one’s own therapy.” — Dr. Joseph Nicolosi Jr., clinical director, Breakthrough clinic

Although the Mormon Church opposes “same-sex marriage” and teaches that homosexuality is a sin, it denounces conversion therapy as abusive and supports banning the practice.

“The media and politicians have been using the term “conversion therapy” for any therapy that claims to modify sexuality from homosexuality to heterosexuality. But they’re not telling the full story. The term “conversion therapy” is broad, ill-defined, there’s no ethics code, no governing organization. And it’s generally practiced by unlicensed individuals.” — Dr. Joseph Nicolosi Jr., clinical director, Breakthrough clinic

The rule would ban Utah’s non-Mormon therapists from practicing conversion therapy on LGBTQ minors.

“[E]veryone has the right to walk away from sexual practices that don’t work for them. [However,] if those feelings are homosexual in nature, then it’s not OK to walk away. That it’s somehow “anti-gay” to want to walk away from homosexuality and to have help to do so.” — Dr. Joseph Nicolosi Jr., clinical director, Breakthrough clinic

People have the right to leave the homosexual lifestyle for any reason. America’s politicians, media, and LGBT advocates don’t understand or respect that desire for self-determination and individualism, the values that built this nation.

“Many hard-left proponents of identity politics hate the truth that sexuality isn’t set in stone. They approach the topic of sexuality from the political, non-scientific premise that it can’t change, that is to say, if you have these attractions, you are forever part of an oppressed minority group and it’s now your permanent identity, so all you can do is accept it. It’s very hard for them to acknowledge the reality that sexuality is something that can actually change and doesn’t comprise everyone’s core identity.” — Dr. Joseph Nicolosi Jr., clinical director, Breakthrough clinic

LGBTQ advocates, who’ve tried for years to ban what they call conversion therapy in Utah, praised the leaders of the Mormon Church for their crucial support of the ban.

The Church’s support was essential because the state’s governor, its majority of lawmakers, all six members of its congressional delegation, its two U.S. Senators, and nearly two-thirds of its population are Mormon.

“I’m grateful that we have found a way forward that will ban conversion therapy forever in our state.” Gary Herbert, Republican Governor of Utah

Utah’s conversion therapy ban will undergo a 30-day public comment period beginning Dec. 15 and will take effect January 22, 2020.

Therapy bans take away the rights of clients and put politicians in control of the client’s own therapy. They’re often based on the outrageous unscientific notion that biological sex can change but an individual’s thoughts and feelings cannot. Nothing could be further from the truth.” — Dr. Joseph Nicolosi Jr., clinical director, Breakthrough clinic

Based on the American Psychological Association’s false claims that reparative therapy aka conversion therapy is unscientific and harmful to mental health, eighteen states, plus Washington, D.C., have now banned the therapy for minors.

What most people don’t know is the American Psychological Association (APA) stopped relying on science as the foundation for mental health diagnoses in 1973 when homosexual activists began pressuring and attacking APA committee members to change what disorders appear in the organization’s Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM).

“Verily, verily, I say unto you, that one of you shall betray me. … [John] saith unto him, Lord, who is it? Jesus answered, He it is, to whom I shall give a sop, when I have dipped it. And when he had dipped the sop, he gave it to Judas Iscariot, the son of Simon. And after the sop Satan entered into him. Then said Jesus unto him, That thou doest, do quickly.” John 13:21, 25, 26-27 (KJV)

Chick-fil-A has reassessed its “philanthropic partnerships” and will no longer donate to Christian charities that oppose “same-sex marriage.”

“There’s no question we know that, as we go into new markets, we need to be clear about who we are. There are lots of articles and newscasts about Chick-fil-A, and we thought we needed to be clear about our message.” — Tim Tassopoulos, Chick-fil-A President and Chief Operating Officer

Chic-fil-A will no longer donate to the Salvation Army, the Fellowship of Christian Athletes, and the Paul Anderson Youth Home or other Christian charities that support God-ordained marriage, i.e., the joining together by God of a man and a woman to become one flesh .

From now on the “Judas company” (a company that betrays Christ while pretending to follow Christ) will donate to gaystapo-approved charities. 

“Our goal is to donate the most effective organizations in the areas of education, homelessness, and hunger. No organization will be excluded from future consideration – faith based or non-faith-based.” — Tim Tassopoulos, Chick-fil-A President and Chief Operating Officer

According to the company’s November 18, 2019, press release, the Chick-Fil-A Foundation will give $9 million in 2020 to Junior Achievement USA and Covenant House International and will shift its support to causes such as education, homelessness, and hunger. Also included in the company’s new initiative is a $25,000 donation to the local food bank in the community where a new Chick-fil-A opens.

In June of this year, a Manhattan Chick-fil-A restaurant was vandalized during a sodomite pride parade. The gaystapo mob sent a tolerance-and-love message to self-identified Christian businesses nationwide.

The words “F**k haters” were written on a red “X” taped to a window and a sign was placed at the front door with the words, “LOVE is a terrible thing to waste.”

It’s quite telling that the glaring irony is completely lost on them.

Todd Starnes reports the LGBTQ movement has officially taken over the Austin, Texas, Independent School District. According to Starnes, district’s trustees voted on Tuesday October 29, 2019, “to implement a pornographic sex education policy that includes instruction on anal sex and how to place a condom on an erect penis.”

The school district will also instruct students to use gender inclusive language and to avoid using words like “mother” or “father,” which refer to only male or female identities.

In addition, elementary and middle school students will be taught how to bypass parents to get abortions or birth control pills.

The overwhelming majority of the more than 100 citizens who spoke at Monday night’s district meeting voiced opposition to the sex education policy.

Those who spoke in support of the policy included a nine-year-old fourth-grader, the parent of a transgender second grader, someone who identified as “they/them,” (as in “my name is Legion: for we are many”) and a female wearing a t-shirt with the words “I met God. They’re queer, y’all.”

It was clear from the outset that most of the trustees had made up their minds before the debate began. Many of them had LGBT and Transgender flags on their desks.

According to Austin ISD spokesman Scott Thomas, the school board voted unanimously to pass the new Human Sexuality and Responsibility curriculum because a survey of family student primary contacts showed overwhelming support for it.

However, only 10.5% of family student primary contacts actually responded to the survey, which means nearly 90% of family student primary contacts did not voice their opinion on the new curriculum.

Thomas did not respond to a Daily Caller request for comment as to how the survey could be representative of the population when nearly 90% of family student primary contacts did not respond to it.

Obviously the Austin school district is recruiting little boys and little girls for the gaystapo. The relevant question now is what are the parents and the community going to do about it?

Pastor Jesse Lee Peterson interviews Pastor Steven Anderson of Faithful Word Baptist Church.

Peterson and Anderson discuss whether a person can be born again of God and still sin. Peterson asks Anderson if the flesh is stronger than the Spirit, and is that the reason people sin.

Anderson tells Peterson that he hates homosexuals because they are reprobates who hate God. Anderson quotes from Romans Chapter 1 to support his claim that homosexuality is the only sin that shows hatred for God. 

It’s obvious Peterson clearly doesn’t understand Scripture, and although Anderson makes some valid points from the Scripture, both men are unregenerate Christians.

According to Scripture, Anderson is wrong to say that all homosexuals are reprobates. It’s true that many are, but Paul writes in 1Corinthians 6:9-11 that some in the church at Corinth were once homosexuals and have been washed, sanctified, and justified by the Spirit of God.

To be reprobate means rejected of God and eternally damned. Reprobates have been abandoned to their sinful nature and have no hope of salvation. Scripture clearly teaches that some homosexuals have been saved, which means that not all homosexuals have been given over to a reprobate mind.

The interview begins at the 2:08.03 mark and ends at the 2:31.03 mark.

The following question was posted above the photo below on Gab’s Christian group’s timeline: As a Christian, what do you think of Alan Turing, widely regarded as the “Father of Theoretical Computer Science and AI” who was a British mathematician who was in the team which broke the Enigma cipher of the Nazis during WWII; but who was punished by the law for being a homosexual, after which he died allegedly by suicide?

 

 

The question isn’t really about Turing as much as it’s about his being punished for being a homosexual and his subsequent suicide.

The enablers and advocates of homosexuality are tugging at heart-strings for Christians to decry the hateful, unjust law that punished such a gifted man and war hero for simply being homosexual. “Oh, the Humanity!”

And this is how I answered the question:

God destroyed Sodom with fire and brimstone from heaven chiefly because of homosexuality (Gen. 19:4-5, 24; II Peter 2:6-8; Jude 7).

Christ mentioned Sodom and not the other cities, not only because it went beyond them all in brutality and cruelty, but also because God destroyed Sodom in an extraordinary manner so that it would serve as an example to all ages, and its very name would be associated with gross immorality, utter depravity, and deep-seated wickedness.

Homosexuality isn’t a sin like lying, cheating, or murder. Homosexuals act on sexual urges that are foreign to the human condition. Heterosexual urges are perverted by the sin nature, but these urges are natural and stem from a desire to reproduce. Conversely, a sexual urge for an animal or someone of the same sex does not come from the sin nature. It’s an unnatural urge from a wicked spirit to gratify an unnatural sexual desire.

Homosexuality is an unnatural sinful sex act, whereas heterosexuality is not an unnatural sex act, and it isn’t considered sinful when it’s in the confines of marriage. Conversely, a homosexual sex act is always unnatural and sinful even when it’s committed in a “monogamous” same-sex relationship or in the confines of a same-sex “marriage.”

People are born with a sin nature, but they aren’t born possessed or oppressed by wicked spirits. Spiritual possession or oppression happens after people are born, not before.

Isaiah, Ezekiel, and Jeremiah all noted how open and brazen the Sodomites were with their sin. They did not hide their sin and were unbending and determined to proceed in their sin, which is why God issued His severest condemnation and judgment every time the sin of the Sodomites is mentioned in Scripture.

Peace.

Former APA President Reveals How Homosexual Activists Bullied APA into Removing Homosexuality from List of Disorders

By Jerry A. Kane

In 1970 homosexual activists began a program of intimidation aimed at the American Psychiatric Association (APA):

“It was never a medical decision—and that’s why I think the action came so fast…It was a political move…That’s how far we’ve come in ten years. Now we even have the American Psychiatric Association running scared.” Barbara Gittings, Homosexual Activist

The following year, 1971, homosexual activist Dr. Franklin Kameny wrote an open letter to the Psychiatric News threatening the APA with more and even worse disruptions:

“Our presence there was only the beginning of an increasingly intensive campaign by homosexuals to change the approach of psychiatry toward homosexuality or, failing that, to discredit psychiatry.” Franklin Kameny

Members of the “National Gay Task Force” managed to get the addresses of APA members, and with-out identifying themselves, sent out harassing letters to all members demanding they vote to remove homosexuality from the list of mental illnesses in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual (DSM), the APA’s classification guide for mental disorders.

No new fact, set of facts, or scientific breakthrough triggered the removal of homosexuality from the list of mental illnesses in the 1974 seventh edition of DSM-II. It was dishonesty and intimidation by homosexual activists that moved 32.7 percent of APA’s total membership to approve the change and normalize homosexuality.

Against the wishes of two-thirds of the organization’s members, homosexuals were “cured” overnight by a vote. A psychiatric disorder that had been classified as a mental illness for 25 years (1948-1973) was suddenly banished by vote, by fiat, but not by valid science or by evaluating the pathology or lack of pathology surrounding homosexuality.

In the youtube clip below, Dr. Nicholas Cummings is interviewed by a representative from the National Association for Research and Therapy of Homosexuality (NARTH). Dr. Cummings is a former President of the American Psychological Association (APA). He introduced the motion to declassify homosexuality as a mental illness to APA’s Council of Representatives.

Disney Children’s Movie Promotes Homosexuality

By Jerry A. Kane

Disney’s remake of its children’s film “Beauty and the Beast” has a modern makeover with an updated socially progressive subplot. The film includes an “exclusively gay moment” scene between villain Gaston and his main sidekick, LeFou.

“LeFou is somebody who on one day wants to be Gaston and on another day wants to kiss Gaston. He’s confused about what he wants. It’s somebody who’s just realizing that he has these feelings.”—Bill Condon, “Beauty and the Beast” director

The gaystapo’s relentless effort to sway the masses to adopt its homosexual agenda has now reached critical mass and is seriously damaging young children. Disney has joined with the gaystapo to promote a lifestyle characterized by promiscuity, instability, and serious health effects to children.

Engaging in homosexuality was once considered by society to be a sinful, shameful, degenerate act, but now it doesn’t raise an eyebrow; it’s just 1 of the 12 sexual orientations listed on OKCupid.

Throughout history roughly 2 percent of women self-identified as lesbian or bisexual; today, nearly 15 percent of young women and girls self-identify as lesbian or bisexual.

“When teenage girls feel free to engage in blatantly sexual behavior with each other, we can be sure that some major boundary of sexual morality has been gravely damaged. The natural attraction between girls and boys has been so confused by public celebration of homosexuality and the various eroticisms of everyday life, that young people are now confused about something as simple and basic as heterosexual identity.”— Albert Mohler, President Southern Baptist Theological Seminary.

Recent studies have found that half of the United Kingdom’s young adults and a third of America’s young adults said they aren’t “100 percent heterosexual.” It was also found that the older a person is the less likely he or she is to have engaged in same-sex activity.

The homosexual a.k.a. LGBTQ community is growing larger all the time. Most Americans are clueless about how kids’ movies and television shows have been indoctrinating children to accept homosexuality. The X-Men movies have been doing it for years. The movies are an allegory about homosexual culture and homosexual rights, and the mutant superheroes are “stand-ins” for homosexual, lesbian, and transgender people.

The endgame for Disney and 20th Century Fox goes far beyond social acceptance. They want children to embrace homosexuality as normal and desirable.

“By representing same-sex attraction in this short but explicitly gay scene, the studio is sending out a message that this is normal and natural-and this is a message that will be heard in every country of the world, even countries where it’s still socially unacceptable or even illegal to be gay … It’s a step in the right direction and I applaud Disney for being brave enough to make it-and in doing so hopefully helping to change attitudes and bring about real social progress.”—Matt Cain, Attitude Magazine editor-in-chief

In other words, “Beauty and the Beast” and the X-Men movies are propaganda films meant to indoctrinate children, corrupt their morals, and entice them to experiment in homosexual sex. And based on the exponential rise in homosexual and bisexual behavior among millennials and younger people, it seems to be working quite well.

“They can’t cure us. You want to know why? Because there’s nothin’ to cure. Nothing’s wrong with you. Or any of us, for that matter.” – Storm, X-Men: The Last Stand
