    What’s the first thing you do when meeting someone new? Exchange pronouns, of course, to make sure you refer to each other accurately. But what if you didn’t have to do that? Meet Earl Thornton. He has this amazing ability to guess people’s pronouns instantly -- just by looking at them. And he’s almost never wrong. “I don’t know, it just feels like I’ve always been able to do this,” said Thornton, who is very humble about his nearly supernatural ability. “I just look at somebody, and then before I can even think, I have their pronouns in my head.”
  • So-called 'Virginia Values Act' undermines religious freedom; Requires Christian ministries to hire employees who do not share their stated beliefs on marriage, sexuality, and gender identity.

    Christian Post ^ | 10/17/2020 | John Stonestreet and Roberto Rivera
    On July 1, the state of Virginia enacted the “Virginia Values Act,” which bans discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation and gender identity. A companion law requires employers to include coverage for sex reassignment and “gender affirming” surgeries in their health plans. According to the Alliance Defending Freedom, who has filed a pre-enforcement challenge, the Virginia Values Act requires “churches, religious schools, and Christian ministries to hire employees who do not share their stated beliefs on marriage, sexuality, and gender identity.”Though the Act provides an exemption for religious schools “owned, supported, controlled, or managed” by denominations or churches, that...

    Three Christian schools and a Christian network of pregnancy centers are suing Attorney General Mark Herring (D-Va.) in order to prevent Virginia from implementing two pro-LGBT laws that force “people of faith to adopt a particular government ideology under threat of punishment.” The two laws purport to prevent “discrimination” against LGBT people but, in reality, they force Christian ministries to choose between violating their sincerely held religious beliefs or paying hefty fines, as much as $100,000 per offense. The so-called Virginia Values Act (S.B. 868), which Gov. Ralph Northam (D-Va.) signed on Holy Saturday (the day before Easter Sunday) in...

    DEMOCRATIC PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE JOE BIDEN’S FOUNDATION LAUNCHED A PRO-LGBTQ CAMPAIGN WHICH PROMOTED THE STORIES OF AN 18-MONTH-OLD “GENDER NONCONFORMING” CHILD AND OTHER TRANSGENDER KIDS. The 2018 initiative, called the “As You Are” campaign, centered on a map tracking LGBTQ “acceptance stories” across the country. It was spearheaded by Biden’s eponymous foundation, which has been described as “further[ing] the work the Bidens did over eight years in the Obama administration and cement[ing] the former vice president’s more than four decade legacy in public life.” Of the nearly 500 individuals highlighted, many were children under the age of 18, with one account...

    by Jacob Harding A campaign surrogate of Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden is under federal  investigation for soliciting sex with minor boys. Federal agents raided the Illinois home of Jerry Harris, who gained notoriety due to his role in the Netflix documentary Cheer, Monday afternoon as part of a probe into messages sent to minors asking for explicit photos and to meet for sex. The solicitations were flagged for authorities by the 21-year-old's employer. The Biden campaign had been using Harris, who has over a million followers on Instagram, as part of Biden's push to sway young voters and "win...

    A survey of around 1,200 queer male Americans found that around 45 per cent – around 540 – plan to vote for Trump. Oh, no. As much as Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden has netted an, albeit, slim majority of the queer male vote, securing 51 per cent, it signalled to pollsters how the president’s brand of bullish showmanship has roiled the political landscape. ndeed, the LGBT+ voting bloc has long been reliably Democratic. The poll conducted by queer dating app Hornet found that, overall among its users, around 66 per cent prefer Biden while 34 per cent support Trump....

    LGBTQ rights advocates are pushing back against the Texas Board of Education's recent rejection of a proposed curriculum to teach middle school and high school students about gender identity and sexual orientation. The Republican-dominated board rejected a batch of proposed curriculum changes last week, striking down mandates to require students to learn about the differences between gender identity and sexual orientation as well as a proposal to teach middle schoolers about consent. The board is expected to take a final vote on any changes in the sexual education curriculum in November. Some proponents of the changes called the rejection "especially...

    San Francisco state Senator Scott Wiener has introduced a new bill to decriminalize adult men having sex with boys and he and his allies in the media are smearing all opposition as "homophobic" and "anti-Semitic." From The Federalist, "No California Shouldn't Decriminalize Adult Sex With 14-Year-Olds": LGBT activists have pushed reasonable notions of equality to its limits with obscene perversions. State Sen. Scott Wiener, D-San Francisco -- the same lawmaker who co-sponsored a bill in 2017 to remove the felony penalty for knowingly exposing another person to HIV -- has introduced a bill, Senate Bill 145 to give judges more...

    Walt Heyer knows firsthand what it’s like to undergo sex change surgery and then regret it. After living as a woman for nearly a decade, he decided to accept his biological sex and de-transition back to male. By then, Walt had received intensive cognitive therapy that helped him recognize early childhood trauma he had experienced.The trauma resulted in a mental condition known as dissociative identity disorder (DID). In the clarity of that realization, his gender dysphoria simply vanished. His life as a “woman” all amounted to an attempt to escape reality. Sadly, too few people consider the possibility that...

    Hallmark Channel’s annual collection of Christmas movies starring actors like Danica McKellar and Candace Cameron Bure are designed to spread tidings and joy. But when the network revealed an advance look at this year’s lineup of 40 holiday films — including titles like Deliver by Christmas, On the 12th Date of Christmas and Christmas Doctor — it received a lump of coal in return. Social media immediately noted that none of the films feature LGBTQ characters or storylines and called the channel out on Twitter.

    LANSING, Mich. (ChurchMilitant.com) - The diocese of Lansing is distancing itself from the organization Black Lives Matter (BLM), which has been waging public war against the diocese for three years, as well from the Catholic Campaign for Human Development (CCHD), which has generously funded left-wing groups in Lansing for at least the last decade. "The diocese cannot give its corporate endorsement to the organization Black Lives Matter," the diocese said in a June 23 e-mail in response to queries from Church Militant about the group. "As set out in its 'What We Believe' statement," the diocese continued, "many of its...

The clueless US Ambassador to Russia, John Sullivan, decided that he personally needed to chime in to explain to the Russian people why the US had decided to post that flag on the same day when the Russian...

    Staff at Publishing house Hachette have threatened to quit unless the company cancels its association with JK Rowling and scraps plans to publish her new book because they argue the author is ‘transphobic’. The Daily Mail reported that “Staff in the children’s department at Hachette announced they were no longer prepared to work on the book” over Rowling’s recent assertions that biological sex is real and that there are only two genders.
