Pastor Robert Jeffress of First Baptist Church in Dallas, Texas, preached about the transgender debate in America during his sermon on Sunday, telling the congregation that God already addressed the issue with Jesus' Words in the Bible.
Jeffress said in his sermon that many Christians are confused about how they should respond to the ongoing transgender debate seen in bathroom policies and recent court cases.
"It's not that confusing. In Matthew 19:4, God's Words are applicable. The Bible says 'God made them from the beginning male and female.' Not male, female and question mark. God has determined how many sexes there are — there are two, not three," the megachurch pastor said. more >>
The United States Supreme Court sent several challenges to the Human and Human Services Department's contraception mandate back to the lower courts, vacating the earlier rulings.
Plaintiffs, including the Little Sisters of the Poor, East Texas Baptist University, and the Roman Catholic Archbishop of Washington will have their lawsuits decided at the lower court level.
In a Per Curiam decision released Monday morning, the highest court in the land reasoned that the lower court decisions were to be vacated in light of a new possible resolution between the two parties. more >>
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 >>
