David and Jason Benham, the twin brothers who were fired from an HGTV reality show because of their opposition to gay marriage, have slammed President Obama's transgender bathroom directive to public schools, calling it a means to create "chaos."
Jason Benham said in a video posted on Facebook: "It's leading us into absolute chaos. Here's the interesting thing — you guys remember the movie 'The Dark Knight,' when the Joker is hanging off the building, and Batman is holding onto him, and [asks] 'What do you want?' and the Joker says 'Chaos!' — well that's what we're experiencing right now."
He warned that the directive calling on schools to allow students to use the bathrooms of their gender identity, rather than the gender of their birth sex, will open up "a loophole for deviant men to go in and prey upon our women and girls." more >>
Online search data has revealed that there are many Americans who wish to understand just what the term "transgender" means.
LGBT issues have become a main conversation topic nationwide since North Carolina passed its much-criticized "bathroom bill" in March. The topic was further emphasized last week when the Obama administration released a directive to public schools about accommodating transgender students in bathrooms that align with their transgender identities.
While the conversation on transgender and LGBT rights have been building for many years, even decades, the recent directive from the U.S. government, signed by the Justice and Education Departments, has caused a surge in public interest on transgenders. more >>
Liberals are now totally fed up with deliberative democracy. The message is clear: "Obey, or you will be punished."
On Friday, President Barack Obama directed all public schools in the country to base their bathroom and locker room usage rules on gender identity rather than sex. On an issue as sensitive as where we shower, change clothes and go potty, Obama decided there was no need for a public debate on the issue. No input from school boards, teachers, principles, superintendents, state legislatures, Congress or parents was required. Obama ruled for the nation.
This was not a one-off episode. For years now, Obama and his liberal cohorts have indicated they have no patience for deliberative democracy, in which issues are debated and compromises reached. Rather, they prefer to use court and executive actions to force their agenda on the rest of the nation. more >>
I've often wondered which school my daughter will attend. I've contemplated all sides of the argument.
I was public schooled K-12 and my wife was homeschooled K-12. I've argued that homeschoolers aren't socialized, and then married a social butterfly. I've embraced that public schoolers are surrounded by temptation, and gone on to teach hundreds of teenagers that God wants to use them as evangelists on their school campus.
I'm not against public school, and I'm not totally for homeschool, but after today, I think I've finally figured out which school my princess will attend. more >>
The Obama administration has issued a directive requiring all public schools in the United States to allow transgender students access to single sex bathrooms consistent with their gender identity, and at least one state has indicated that it will contest the order.
Leaders at the U.S. Departments of Education and Justice will issue a guidance Friday telling public school districts across the country that they must treat students in a manner that is consistent with the with their chosen gender identity.
Associated Press reports that all that a student has to do to declare himself as a gender different than his biological sex, is have a parent or guardian call and notify his or her school district that the student's identity "differs from previous representations or records." No medical diagnosis or documents are needed to prove a transgender identity. more >>
The United Nations Security Council, the branch that has the power to act and send assistance to persecuted people, is being urged to examine the ongoing genocide of Christians and other minorities being carried out by the Islamic State terror group.
The American Center for Law and Justice, which called the news a "major breakthrough," explained that it sent a letter to U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-Moon, calling for meaningful action to help minorities being exterminated by the Islamic radicals who have captured significant territory throughout Iraq and Syria.
Late last week, the U.N. Secretary-General's Special Representative and Head of the United Nations Assistance Mission for Iraq, Jan Kubis, submitted a briefing to the Security Council condemning "in the strongest possible terms the continued killings, kidnapping, rape and torture of Iraqis by ISIL, which may constitute crimes against humanity, war crimes and even genocide." more >>
