Posted on 05/02/2011 6:06:24 AM PDT by flowerplough
Today the White House is hosting the first-ever meeting to focus specifically on transgender issues. The Office of Public Engagement (OPE) will meet with transgender activists and leaders to discuss federal policy on trans issues. Topics to be discussed include employment policy, access to health care, military policy, and immigration detention standards.
Some activists have expressed concern in the past week that the meeting was to be held behind closed doors and without any press invited to cover the event, though OPE pointed out that most stakeholder meetings are off the record. Still, advocates are happy to be able to address the issues facing the transgender community. Michael Silver, executive director of the Transgender Legal Defense and Education Fund, said "At this point, employment is the top priority of the community. A recent survey showed 47% of transgender people have been denied a job or a promotion - or fired from a job - just because of who they are."
The National Center for Transgender Equality was among the groups invited to attend the meeting. Executive director Mara Keisling noted the historical nature of the meeting. "This is the first president who has allowed trans people - really allowed LGBT people - to bring forward problems and then advocate for them," she said.
Most meetings are indeed off the record in O
Hey, it’s back to business as usual. What could be more important anyway?
The sodomites continue their long march to destroy our culture and institutions. It has become easier now that so many conservatives are unwilling to confront them.

Skip recognition of Easter but be sure to set aside special time for the seriously sexually/mentally disturbed.
Woe to them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter! - Isaiah 5:20

Because all we do is complain. We give the leftists our children. We don’t fight the rot in our churches and throw out the cowards in the pulpits. We don’t fight the rot in our communities. We don’t work to inform ourselves about the truth. And, our political effort - such as it is - is focused on the more glamorous high profile FINAL elections, when the real action is in the primaries and substantial effort should be given to getting the right people in local positions.
Instead, we watch sports and other television and gladly slurp up the dishonest rationalizations fed to us for holding on to our pieces of the welfare state. Most of all, we reject Biblical truth in favor of moral relativism in all areas of life - especially sexual - under the guise of “live and let live” and other specious excuses for allow sexual pathologies to run rampant.
I’m not saying this applies to you, but I’m sure you’ve seen it.
I agree. He can’t seem to get enough of the perverts and mentally deranged.
Please, Lord, help us fix this in 2012.
