    Last December, I received an early Christmas present that I would have rejected just one year earlier: an “M” for “male” on my driver’s license. The switch back to male marked the end of a long journey of gender confusion and self-deception. Along the way I became a transgender activist and then America’s first legally non-binary person. By Christmas Eve 2019, I was done with the lies. By God’s grace, a Portland judge granted my petition to legally restore my sex to male. This has been a five-year ordeal. I first rose to become a transgender activist in 2015, telling...
  • I will say what the political leaders can't say about Pete Buttigieg (And I am not a religious bigot)

    It is certainly politically incorrect to say this. In fact, in the eyes of many, what I’m about to say is a classic example of extreme religious bigotry. But I will say it nonetheless. Choosing an out and proud “married” gay man to run for president, let alone become president, would contribute to the further degeneration and moral confusion of our society along with further attacks on our most fundamental rights.When I tweeted this statement out on February 8, it received far more retweets and likes than my average tweet. Far more. So, it obviously struck a chord. The support...

    This whole video is just Amir and is just about the corona virus. He has studied the event well, as he does with everything he talks to us about, and he mentions all the factors that many on FR know about that make it dangerous, and repeats the 21-day incubation period, which is now up to 24 days on FR, along with the almost insurmountable problem of the virus being airborne. God bless you, Amir, for drawing attention to this, not to cause alarm but so that we call can do whatever we can to help ourselves and others. And...

    Move comes amid 'false' accusations that the group is aiding communist rebels The Philippine government has frozen the bank accounts of the Rural Missionaries of the Philippines (RMP) for "probable cause," saying they are "related to terrorism financing." The government's Anti-Money Laundering Council (AMLC) ordered a 20-day freeze on three RMP accounts with the Bank of the Philippine Islands. In a resolution dated Dec. 26, 2019, the AMLC also ordered the bank to submit details of related bank accounts and proposed the filing of a petition before the Court of Appeals to extend the freeze order to six months. The...

    Bishops against 'confrontational' approach saving babies from abortionHARTFORD, Conn. (ChurchMilitant.com) - A Connecticut crisis pregnancy center (CPC) that confronts women before they enter abortion mills has been told it's "too confrontational" to be part of a coalition of CPCs that receive funds from the diocese of Norwich and its parishes. The Connecticut Catholic Conference, which includes the state's bishops, formed a coalition of CPCs in the area called Connecticut Pregnancy Care Coalition (CPCC). Since it launched in July 2017, it has required its member-centers to take a softer approach to crisis pregnancy help that some believe is not optimal for...

    Kiev, February 10, Interfax - President Vladimir Zelensky has invited Pope Francis to pay a visit to Ukraine and see for himself the situation in Donbass. Zelensky and his wife Yelena had an audience with the Pope in Vatican on Saturday, with the president noting the important role the Holy See could play in establishing peace on Ukrainian soil, the presidential office said on Saturday. "The main thing we talked about was peace. [The Pope] even called me 'president of peace' - that is the image I now have in Europe," Zelensky said after the audience. Francis is being eagerly...

  • Ben Bradshaw MP Warns Church of England its Established Status is at Threat Over Civil Partnerships Stance

    Christian Today ^ | 2/6/20 | Staff
    Labour MP Ben Bradshaw today told the House of Commons that "serious questions" will be asked about the Church of England's established status if it stands by its position on opposite-sex civil partnerships. A statement by the College of Bishops last month said that sex was for married heterosexual couples only. "For Christians, marriage – that is the lifelong union between a man and a woman, contracted with the making of vows – remains the proper context for sexual activity," the document said, adding that "sexual relationships outside heterosexual marriage are regarded as falling short of God's purposes for human...

    The Vatican’s Nest of Globalist Ninnies They stand against America and for the UN. Nesting at the Vatican these days is an astonishing collection of leftists, all of whom recite from the same left-wing catechism as Pope Francis. The Vatican has become the favorite European salon of the George Soros crowd. To say that the Vatican is under enemy occupation sounds hyperbolic but it is not. A steady stream of pro-abortion pols and intellectuals pass through the Vatican every week — from Bernie Sanders to Paul Ehrlich to Jerry Brown to Bill de Blasio to Jeffrey Sachs.This last week Sachs...

    Pelosi Omits Christians as She Lists Religious Persecutions Around World Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi failed to mention Christians as she listed religious persecutions around the world Thursday. The House speaker spoke Thursday morning in Washington, D.C., at the National Prayer Breakfast where she prayed for those who are persecuted because of their religion. She listed people of Buddhist, Muslim, and Jewish faiths before generalizing about other persecuted religions. “Oh, Lord, we thank all gathered at this prayer breakfast for lifting our voices for the poor and the persecuted, the millions who are missing or murdered because of their faith,” Pelosi, who is a...

    This just went up on YouTube a few minutes ago. I watched the whole thing on Facebook, which has tens of thousands of views already. Really up-to-the-minute. Anyone watching FR already knows most of what Amir is saying about the virus. He gets it. As most folks on this site do. Also comments on the so-called Deal of the Century, which is really a plan for Israel, not any kind of give-and-take in the usual, historical sense of these agreements; military action in Syria; the new and possibly temporary friendliness of Sudan; the present position of Russia; and more.

    [Barf Alert] San Diego Bishop: Climate Change Death Toll ‘Larger’ Than Abortion Bp. Robert McElroy seeking to influence Catholic vote SAN DIEGO (ChurchMilitant.com) - Abortion and climate change were compared several times in a recent speech by San Diego Bp. Robert McElroy, who insisted Catholics must not be single-issue voters. Playing his part to influence the Catholic vote in the upcoming California presidential primaries, McElroy claimed both abortion and climate change are "core life issues" — while alleging the latter ends more human beings' lives.  Abortion kills "more than 750,000 unborn children" but "the long-term death toll from unchecked climate change is...

    The U.S. is a problem. It became a far more significant problem with Donald Trump,' said Jeffrey Sachs at the conference. February 6, 2020 (LifeSiteNews) – Pro-abortion globalist and U.S. citizen Jeffrey Sachs attacked the United States at a Vatican-run conference in Rome, calling the land of the free and the home of the brave not only a “problem” but “dangerous” for its opposition to what he called the world’s “big consensus” on economic issues and the climate. Sachs directly attacked President Donald Trump by name, saying that the U.S. problem “became a far more significant problem with Donald Trump,”...

    After a months-long impeachment process that has exposed many divisions in the nation, the Senate voted to acquit President Trump Wednesday on two articles brought by Democratic members of the House: abuse of power and obstruction of Congress. The votes were 52-48 and 53-47, with Sen. Mitt Romney, R-Utah, voting to convict the president on the first article. Other than Romney, the Senate votes fell along partisan lines, with every Democrat voting to convict and every Republican voting to acquit. The acquittal came the day after Tuesday's State of the Union address. Speaking Thursday in the East Room of the...
