UK Government – LGBT Action Plan 2018 – part four.

In part one of this look into the British Government’s LGBT Action Plan 2018- Improving the lives of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender people, we looked at the introduction. Part two looks at the Executive summary, part three looked at the funding. Let us move on now to the section on Health.

Health

Most of my comments here are trivial. LGBT people are to be privileged above ordinary heterosexuals and we are to fund this and their life choices. But there is not really that much in this section to talk about. I have made a few comments, some of them a bit tongue in cheek.

Your sexual orientation or gender identity can have a significant impact on your physical, mental and sexual health and wellbeing. Existing evidence shows that health outcomes are generally worse for LGBT people than the rest of the population, and that LGBT people feel that their specific needs are not taken into account in their care.

If you or I suggested that the “LGBT lifestyle” was less healthy we would be committing a “hate crime”

There are of course consequences of say, male sodomy, that is a real health problem, but you can not really blame that on the rest of us not being caring enough.

It appears to be, though “it’s contrary to all reason… that Lesbians have significantly higher pregnancy rates than their heterosexual peers.” “gay males… are substantially more likely to impregnate their sexual partners than are heterosexual males.

OK, so the world has just gone mad. No wonder the LGBT community needs more sexual health support, they appear not to even know what a lesbian or a homosexual man is.

Our survey showed that large numbers of respondents had difficulty accessing healthcare services and especially gender identity clinics. It also showed many respondents had experienced inappropriate questioning and curiosity from healthcare staff, and that some respondents feel their specific needs were ignored or not taken into account when accessing healthcare.

Many people have difficulty getting the health care that they would like. People on dialysis, or who need a bone marrow transplant to name a few. Some cannot get an NHS dentist. I think we need to look at what the NHS was set up to do… especially in this 70th year of the NHS.

In my opinion, the NHS was never intended to provide sex-change operations or anything like this. It was to provide a basic standard of emergency health care if you broke a leg or got meningitis. Not Paracetamol for a headache or cough mixture or breast enlargements. There was a call in government this week for the government to provide or subsidise women’s sanitary products. Were will the, “let the government provide”. cry end. I need razors, my dad could use a hair transplant, my wife says that she was born, ‘to poor,’ and would the government make her rich.

The NHS is for the healthcare that everyone needs and that you cannot easily provide yourself.

Some of the most important findings include: at least 16% of survey respondents who accessed or tried to access public health services had a negative experience because of their sexual orientation, and at least 38% had a negative experience because of their gender identity.

We can not make doctors or nurses etc into automatons who have no reaction to, out of the ordinary presentations. Do we really expect that if a hairy bearded man truns up to a woman health clinick that there will be no reactions? Yes, I do no that I am exagerating, that is called hyperbably.

no matter how you dress it up, a man talking about himself as a woman is not… normal. I think I can get away with the word normal as there are less than 50% of trans… (whatever they are… I suppose I should call him a Trans Woman), in society.

When we wanted our third baby, my wife was told that her womb would explode. and the birth after she had a cesarian she was told that she COULD NOT have a normal birth. Both wrong, but we have not gone to the government seeking that charities be funded to support people who have more than two children. We laughed it off as a silly doctorl.

fifty one percent of survey respondents who accessed or tried to access mental health services said they had to wait too long, 27% were worried, anxious or embarrassed about going and 16% said their GP was not supportive.

Have no straight people been embarrassed to access mental health services?

We have not had inoculations for the youngest of our children. Our GP was not supportive of that either. Can I have a government-funded charity to support us?

eighty percent of trans respondents who accessed or tried to access gender identity clinics said it was not easy, with long waiting times the most common barrier

Lots of things in life are hard. Having a sex change probably should be hard.

We will ensure that LGBT people’s needs are at the heart of the National Health Service. We want LGBT people to easily access healthcare when they need it most, and feel comfortable disclosing their sexual orientation or gender identity so that they get the best possible care.

Hey, is this fare? Why is the LGBT community to be given preferential access to the NHS?

What the government will do

We will appoint a National Adviser to lead improvements to LGBT healthcare. The National Adviser will focus on reducing the heath inequalities that LGBT people face, and advise on ways to improve the care LGBT people receive when accessing the NHS and public health services. They will work across the NHS to ensure that the needs of LGBT people are considered throughout the health system.

Humm.. that sounds good, but it will not be. It will be preferential treatment and more money to the LGBT community and forced mind changing for all NHS workers.

The National Adviser will work to improve healthcare professionals’ awareness of LGBT issues so they can provide better patient care. The National Adviser will work with relevant statutory organisations and professional associations to embed LGBT issues into physical and mental health services.

Can anyone under 100yrs, not know about the LGBT community and its needs?

We will improve the way gender identity services work for transgender adults. In 2019, NHS England will decide on the future configuration of adult gender identity services in England, and will seek to establish a more modern care model that delivers high quality outcomes in which clinical capacity can be more flexibly deployed. The Government Equalities Office will produce advice about the Gender Recognition Act for GP surgeries and gender identity clinics.

The long and the short… you are going to pay for hormone treatments and sex-change operations.

We will improve our understanding of the impacts on children and adolescents of changing their gender. The Government Equalities Office will gather evidence on the issues faced by people assigned female at birth who transition in adolescence.

They will improve their understanding and gather evidence, but under conditions were considering the possibility that, someone might not want to be gay, might not want to transition, or if they have transitioned they may regret it, is not PC, or is unthinkable.

We will take action to improve mental healthcare for LGBT people. The Department of Health and Social Care and the Government Equalities Office will jointly develop a plan focussed on reducing suicides amongst the LGBT population. The Department of Health and Social Care will ensure LGBT people’s needs are addressed in the updated Suicide Prevention Strategy, and the new Health Education England suicide prevention competency framework will cover high-risk groups including LGBT people.

But we will not be allowed to ask if the reason gay people have such high suicide rates is that they know homosexuality is wrong. Suicide rates actually go up in line with a more tolerant a society is, so it does not appear to because of stigmatisations.

We will enhance fertility services for LGBT people. The Department for Health and Social Care will revise surrogacy legislation so single people (including LGBT individuals) can access legal parenthood after a surrogacy arrangement.

Lesbian and male gay relationships are by nature sterile… well they would be apart from the fact that “Lesbians have significantly higher pregnancy rates than their heterosexual peers.” “gay males… are substantially more likely to impregnate their sexual partners than are heterosexual males.

A male-male couple or female-female couple can not have children. But… hay, in this case, we will throughout the science and help them conceive.

I will not go into all the children do best with married mother and father here… it is all so well known.

We will ensure LGBT people’s needs are taken into account in health and social care regulation. The Care Quality Commission will continue to improve how it inspects the experience of LGBT people in adult social care and mental health in-patient wards, and we will begin to inspect all gender identity clinics on a risk basis. The Care Quality Commission will develop guidance for care quality inspectors on the healthcare pathway for people who are transitioning their gender, and embed LGBT equality issues into the methodology used by inspectors.

I just do not know where to begin with this one.

We will support improved monitoring of sexual orientation and gender identity in healthcare services to enable better patient care. The Government Equalities Office will develop best practice guidance for monitoring and make this openly available to the public sector, and the National Adviser will work to ensure healthcare professionals understand the benefits of asking patients about their sexual orientation and gender identity. The Care Quality Commission will look at how we can promote the NHS England voluntary sexual orientation monitoring standard for people using health and social care services.

Grandma will constantly be asked about her sexual orientation, whenever she goes to the hospital or clinic.

We will work to tackle body image pressures that LGBT young people face. The Government Equalities Office will consider the specific challenges faced by LGBT people as part of our broader work to build the evidence base on the causes and impacts of body dissatisfaction.

Only ugly women and bearded ladies will be allowed in adverts. Not quite, but we will move that way.

We will continue to review the blood donation deferral period for men who have sex with men. NHS Blood and Transplant will explore ways that a more personalised risk assessment can be introduced, to allow more people to donate blood without impacting on blood safety; currently there is very little data on effective ways of carrying out such risk assessments. The initial scoping, evidence gathering and testing may take up to two years to complete.

Why is there a deferral period for men who have sex with men? We are constantly being told that there is no difference between men and women so why would you have this period. Hay, men can even take part in women’s sports now, so there can not be a physical difference… Or is this just not actually true? Is it actually less healthy for a man to have sex with a man… no, it could not be. In Canada you can get in BIG truble if you suggest such a thing.

We are committed to tackling HIV transmission, AIDS and HIV-related deaths. As part of this, we are currently funding a 3 year trial with 10,000 people to determine how best to deliver ‘PrEP’. NHS England will consider the impact of increasing the PrEP trial further.

Again, you are to pay to fund the sexual lives of the immoral.

We will take action to improve the support for LGBT people with learning disabilities. The Department of Health and Social Care will review, collate and disseminate existing best practice guidance and advice regarding LGBT issues and learning disability; and will also ensure that training requirements for support staff and advocates who work with people with learning disabilities includes advice regarding LGBT people.

Far enough.

UK Government – LGBT Action Plan 2018 – part three.

In part one of this look into the British Government’s LGBT Action Plan 2018- Improving the lives of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender people, we looked at the introduction. Part two looks at the Executive summary. Let us move on now to the Funding of this plan.

Funding for the delivery of this plan

…We want the scale of the response to meet the scale of the challenge set out in the national LGBT survey results, and that means we need a coordinated approach across the public, private and voluntary sectors.

Humm. If you are a young family trying to buy your first home… No chance. Want to bring Sodom to the UK, how can we help you?

There is little help to support business startups that might help the UK become prosperous again, our Transport is a mess both on the roads and rails, Brexit… no planning, well not much until now. But if you are upset about being a boy or someone using the wrong pronoun… You need a coordinated approach. We will have to bring the public, private and voluntary sectors into action so you, FEEL ok.

LGBT organisations and charities were viewed as the most helpful when handling the most serious incidents experienced by respondents…

We, the British people will be made to fund organisations that are not only supportive of LGBT concerns but who are often militantly against those of us who are of a traditional view of marriage and sex.

We also want to… ensure the LGBT charities sector is put on a sustainable footing.

While you or I need to struggle to fund our ministries such as The Red Pill Report, or a church or missionary ministry… LGBT ministries are going to be given a sure and secure funding programme. And YOU will pay for it.

We also want to work with other kinds of organisations, like academic institutions, to ensure we have access to the best possible research and evidence.

Academic institutions like Bath Spa University who stop research into people who decide to reverse gender reassignment operations, because it could be “politically incorrect”.

We will fund ‘academic institutions’ to bring forward solutions to LGBT issues and to support the life choices of the LGBT community, who refuse to consider any possibility that there could be anything wrong with the LGBT lifestyle. Well actually even worse, even if they did believe that there was something wrong or could be something wrong they would refuse to look into it because it could be “politically incorrect”.

we will make available £4.5 million to deliver commitments in this action plan and other projects, through an ‘LGBT Implementation Fund’.

You must pay for and support the perversion of our society.

Some of this funding will be used to deliver projects within government. The remainder will be made available to public, private and voluntary sector organisations to deliver projects to support LGBT people.

Again, you will support anti-Christian organisations.

The Government Equalities Office will manage the funding, and decide how money is allocated to projects.

Government Equalities – is this the same people who take Christian bakers to court? Not sure. But I bet they will take churches, that support people wanting to leave the LGBT life, to court soon.

we intend to secure additional funding after March 2020.

This is to be long-term. These pro-LGBT organisations are now set for a long financially trouble-free run at remaking the British moral and social landscape.

we will also provide support to small LGBT charities and organisations looking to diversify their funding as part of this package. This will focus on improving the skills small organisations have to enable them to better support their users

Not only will you fund these anti-Christian charities and organisations, but you will fund improving their skills. Christian charities and organisations will have to fight for their funding and work on the whole from the few skills that us amateur have, but these organisations will be helped in almost every way to changes our society.

“… ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil.” (Genesis 3:5)

You do not need to defer to the true God, you can decide what is right for yourself. Just make it up as you go along. Whatever you like, that must be good. Anything or anyone that stands against you will… they must be evil.

UK Government – LGBT Action Plan 2018 – part two.

In part one of this look into the British Government’s LGBT Action Plan 2018- Improving the lives of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender people, we looked at the introduction. Let us move on to the Executive summary.

Executive summary

In July 2017, the Government launched a national survey of LGBT people. The survey was open to anyone who identified as having a minority sexual orientation, gender identity or had variations in sex characteristics. It asked questions about people’s experiences of living in the UK and in accessing public services. They asked questions about education, healthcare, personal safety and employment.

The survey received more than 108,000 responses, making it the largest national survey of its kind anywhere in the world.

This ‘LGBT Action Plan’ explains how we will advance the rights of LGBT people both at home and abroad, and improve the way that public services work for them. Our vision is for everyone, regardless of their sexual orientation, gender identity or sex characteristics, to be able to live safe, happy and healthy lives where they can be themselves without fear of discrimination.

This makes no provision for people who wish to live their lives or who wish their children to be able to live their lives in a traditionally Christian culture. Christians and those who believe in traditional sexual morality will have to submit to the push to move our society towards Sodom and Gomora. [I do trust that the use of the term Sodom and Gomora will not offend those who are from the LGBT community as… well they celebrate their sodomy with pride]. Traditional morality must fall, that immorality may flourish. This is our Governments policy. Theresa May, may say that this is a Christian country… but it is not.

We will establish an ‘LGBT Implementation Fund’ to deliver this action plan. The Government Equalities Office will allocate £4.5 million of funding, which will be available until the end of the Spending Review period in March 2020, and will seek additional funding in future years.

You the Christian must pay for this perversion of our society. Are we moving to the point where Christians will have to take a stand against the way our taxes are being spent?

This funding will be used to deliver the commitments in this plan, and enable public, private and voluntary sector organisations to deliver projects that respond to the findings from the survey.

Not only will you have to pay for the government to implement this plan, but many NGOs and the like who will be powerfully anti-christian will also be funded to fight against the Church and its values.

We will ensure that LGBT people’s needs are at the heart of the National Health Service. Our survey showed that LGBT people feel their specific needs go unaddressed when accessing healthcare. We will appoint a National Adviser to provide leadership on reducing the heath inequalities that LGBT people face, and we will seek to establish a more modern care model for adult gender identity services in England.

LGBT people who break a leg or who get the flu already have equal access to the NHS. I suspect what is going to be pushed for here is more NHS support for sex-change operations and the like. The NHS was not and should not be set up for this type of health support. It should be to provide general health care for general needs, broken legs and general illness.

There will, of course, need to be a great deal of extra need for STD treatment too.

We will act so that every child and young person feels safe in education, and can achieve their potential.

You can not make schools LGBT promoting and not harm children. Even today, we are hearing of children who go to bed at night frightened that they will wake up having changed their sex. It is possible that you might be able to overcome this with more education, but you can not do that, without bringing the whole subject of sex and sexuality to children who just do not need to have these subjects pushed on then at a young age. You will also have to undermine all, normal standards of sexual morality to make LGBT acceptable.

Our survey found that our education system is not preparing LGBT young people for later life, and that homophobic, biphobic and transphobic bullying is a problem we still need to tackle. We will continue to invest in programmes that tackle homophobic, biphobic and transphobic bullying in schools, and ensure that the new subjects of Relationships Education, and Relationships and Sex Education will support pupils, whatever their developing sexual orientation or gender identity.

Our schools are not preparing our children to get a job, let alone to manage to navigate morality. Now, I am not arguing in favour of bullying of any kind. But we will not make our young people happier or healthier buy making sexual immorality more acceptable. Nor by undermining basic fundamental scientific biology. By doing this, we will just make people less sure what is right and true and less secure who they are.

We will act so that LGBT people feel safe in their own homes and in their communities. Our survey shows that many LGBT people do not report hate incidents they experience and that the abhorrent practice of conversion therapy is still alive in our country. We will bring forward proposals to end the practice of conversion therapy in the UK, and take further action on hate crime as part of our upcoming refresh of the 2016 Hate Crime Action Plan.

Yes, we want everyone to feel safe at home, but bringing the idea of being safe at home and the “abhorrent practice of conversion therapy” into the same paragraph, is to use erroneous logic to support their argument. You set up the idea of safety at home, and use it to knock down the practice of conversion therapy.

Now, I suppose we need to distance ourselves from hurtful or hateful methods of trying to “change” someone form a homosexual to a heterosexual. However, we must stand up for the right of people, particularly Christians who may be suffering from same-sex attraction and who want help to manage or to overcome these feelings.

We will ensure transgender people are treated with dignity and respect. Our survey showed dissatisfaction with the gender recognition process. We will immediately consult on reforming the Gender Recognition Act 2004 and consider how best to make the gender recognition process less bureaucratic and intrusive.

We are looking at legalising the denial of basic science, basic biology. A man does not become a woman, just because he says that he feels like one. He does not even become a woman if he has every visible sign of his manhood removed and changed to look like a woman. Every cell of his body, still cries out that he is a man.

Making it that a man can become a woman just by saying he is one, pays no care for the feelings of men and women who wish to use changing rooms, toilets, or other services provided for, and by, people who are the sex they are biologically. Again, We must give up all rights for normal, traditional morality and biology to accommodate those who wish to deny these things.

We will improve our understanding of the issues faced by people who identify as non-binary and people who are intersex. Our survey gave us new insight into the experiences of these groups, but we have more to learn. We will launch separate Calls for Evidence on the issues faced by non-binary and intersex people.

What about the other 72 genders? Are we to accommodate all of these too? What about the woman who is married to the Eifel Tower, the grown man who claims to be a six-year-old girl. should we accommodate these people to?

We will trial innovative ways of tackling deep-seated prejudices in our communities. Our survey showed that many LGBT people are not comfortable with the simple act of holding their partner’s hand in front of others. We will work across the public, private and voluntary sectors to improve the representation of LGBT people in public life, championing role models and giving people the confidence to be themselves in public.

The BBC is already something like 4 times more LGBT than the general public. Will we see this corrected… NO WAY!

We will deliver the commitments set out in this document by the end of this Parliament. We will listen to the needs of LGBT people and the LGBT sector organisations that support them as we deliver this plan, and establish a new LGBT Advisory Panel to guide our work and hold us to account. We will also provide regular updates to Parliament on our progress.

But we will not listen to traditionalists because they are bigots.

Whilst this is a national action plan, it covers some policy areas that are devolved. It will have varying levels of effect across the four nations of the UK, owing to existing devolution arrangements.

Everyone in this country should feel safe and happy to be who they are, and to love who they love, without judgement or fear. All people, regardless of their gender identity or sexual orientation, should be supported to reach their full potential. This action plan sets out the ways in which the Government hopes to move closer to that goal.

Everyone? Everyone should feel safe and happy to be who they are? Paedophiles, bigamists, people practising incest? No matter what your sexual perversion, you are welcome here, without judgment or fear. “All people, regardless of their gender identity or sexual orientation, should be supported to reach their full potential.” God help us when the only standard is that everyone and everything must be acceptable.

“Howbeit in vain do they worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men.” (Mark 7:7)

UK Government – LGBT Action Plan 2018 – part one.

This week the British Government issued its LGBT Action Plan 2018- Improving the lives of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender people.

I am not going to be able to give a full review, but let make a start… more to follow D.V.

Ministerial foreword.

From the Ministerial foreword by Rt. Hon. Penny Mordaunt Minister for Women and Equalities, [I might want to question the “Right Honourable” bit. I guess it comes from a time when members of parliament were supposed to be men of hounour.]

“One statistic alone speaks volumes. Two-thirds of respondents said they had avoided holding their same-sex partner’s hand in public for fear of a negative reaction. Holding hands with someone you love should be one of the simplest things in the world; not a source of fear or hesitation.”

There are a number of things that we could draw from this.

Dispight all their “Pride,” they know that what they are doing is both unacceptable and wrong. Or at least they know that our society still does not accept it as right. They might want it to be right and wish that everyone would accept it… in fact, I suspect that it is more than acceptance, that they want. They want positive affirmation. But to date, they do not have that universally.

Some of the key actions include:

. appointing a national LGBT health adviser to provide leadership on reducing the health inequalities that LGBT people face

. extending the anti-homophobic, biphobic and transphobic bullying programme in schools
bringing forward proposals to end the practice of conversion therapy in the UK

. taking further action on LGBT hate crime – improving the recording and reporting of, and police response to, hate crime

Hmmm… what health inequalities? Is the NHS not available to LGBT people? I suspect that again what they want os not equality of opportunity, but of outcome… or even preferential treatment.

If you engage in hazardous sexual practices, why should those who do not engage in risky sexual practice take a lower place?

“End the practice of conversion therapy,” it is not freedom, or choice, that the LGBT community wants, but the forced acceptance of their life choices. If you have same-sex attractions that you do not want, you can not choose to seek help. that will become illegal. If you have same-sex attraction, you MUST embrace it and celebrate it. You CANNOT move away from it.

Schools, magazines, TV can promote the LGBT lifestyle, but you can not help those who do not want to embrace it, to overcome or resist that temptation.

We may even find that churches will fall foul of this plane. We may find that the preaching of the gospel, let alone the offer of counselling for sexual holiness will become illegal.

The Left has been unsuccessful in silencing of shutting down the preaching of the Gospel under hate crime law. Now they will put another tool in their toolbox to try to shut up the church.

Ho, and they will strengthen the attack on the church through that hate crime method too, “taking further action on LGBT hate crime – improving the recording and reporting of, and police response to, hate crime.”

There is a wholesale rejection of the morals and standards of God and the Bible and a powerful movement to STAMP “man is God” over our nations and its morals.

“Howbeit in vain do they worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men.” (Mark 7:7)

Canadian Police issue state-wide arrest warrant for Christian accused of LGBT ‘hate’ crimes

According to Christianity Today, Toronto police have issued a Canada-wide warrant for a Christian who handed out flyers at the 2016 Toronto Pride Parade warning of the spiritual and biological dangers of sodomy.

Bill Whatcott announced on the Free North America portal he intends to turn himself into the Calgary police on Friday, June 22 at 10:00 a.m.

Toronto 51 Division is charging Whatcott with ‘inciting hatred under Section 391 of Canada’s Criminal Code.’

My Crime.

Whatcott says, “The ‘crime’? My ministry bringing the Gospel and the truth about homosexuality to Toronto’s homosexual pride parade in 2016.”

Constable Caroline de Kloet, media relations officer for Toronto Police Service, said the charges arose from a two-year investigation into a complaint the police received in 2016, but that police don’t give out “victim information.”

Two-page pamphlet.

Whatcott handed out a two-page pamphlet featured graphic images of anal warts, a mottled corpse described as an “AIDS fatality,” and one of “genital warts in the mouth,” beside a headshot of Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.

It excoriated the “homosexual activism” of Trudeau, former Liberal defence minister Bill Graham, and now-outgoing Ontario Premier Kathleen Wynne, and blasted Wynne’s sex-ed curriculum and its connection to the former deputy minister of education Ben Levin, convicted in 2015 of three child pornography charges.

“Canada has embarked on a destructive journey toward sexual anarchy and homosexual inspired oppression,” the pamphlet declared.

“The clear evidence contained in this package shows Canada’s new sexual ethic is contrary to natural law and no good will come of it.”

[In my mind, Christians who are as aggressive as Whatcott, do not help the case for the Gospel and can risk bringing the church into greater persecution. However, what he says is true and most of the church is guilty of saying WAY too little about this matter. ]

$104 million class action

A month after 2016 Toronto Pride Parade, activist lawyer Douglas Elliott launched a $104 million class action suit against Whatcott and the five unnamed “zombies,” and anyone who aided and abetted them.

“We are going to go after everyone who helped him,” Elliott said at a press conference. “Every person, every church, every non-profit organization, everyone who helped this wicked man promote his hatred is going to be held accountable.”

That was echoed by the suit’s two named plaintiffs — former Liberal MPP and openly homosexual George Smitherman, and homosexual bar owner Christopher Hudspeth.

Hudspeth said the lawsuit would “smoke out” all those who helped Whatcott, and Smitherman said he was “pleased” to “do all we can to stamp this hateful individual out.”

The lawsuit claimed Whatcott’s actions defamed and caused pain to some 9,000 recipients of the leaflets, 500,000 estimated watchers of the parade, and a subclass of individuals publicly identified as Liberals.

Justice Paul Perell ruled in March 2017 that Elliott could not claim defamation of an entire group, such as the Pride Parade participants or the “LGTBTQ2SI Community,” but only of individuals.

But he also issued an order that Whatcott discloses the names his fellow half “gay zombies” as well as those of “unidentified financial backers” who funded the group’s expenses.

The judge ruled knowing these identities was necessary for the homosexual advocates if they decide to go ahead with further legal action.

Canadians should be alarmed at the state’s prosecution of Whatcott for “distributing gospel pamphlets,” says Calgary-based Pastor Art Pawlowski, founder of Street Church, and a friend of Whatcott.

“We’re turning Canada into a Nazi state, into a communist state, where if you voice your politically incorrect views, you will be attacked by the forces of the government,” said Pawlowski.

My thoughts.

[I am put in mind of Matthew 10:16 which says “Behold, I send you forth as sheep in the midst of wolves: be ye therefore wise as serpents, and harmless as doves.” We should be the sheep, not the wolves, and we should be wise and harmless. Above reproach. Or 2 Corinthians 6:3 which says “Giving no offence in any thing, that the ministry be not blamed.” I can not help but wonder if Whatcott is giving unnecessary offence, and thereby hindering the ministry.

Having said that, I am reminded of the lady who said to Billy Graham, “I do not like the way you share the Gospel,” when asked how she shared the gospel she admitted that she did not share the gospel. Mr Graham replied something like, I prefer the way I do evangelism, to the way you don’t.

I can not really complain about Whatcott actions, while I am not at any pride marches reaching out with the Gospel.]

The Christian Institute is holding meetings in Bridport and Salisbury.

Family

The Bible teaches that parents should have primary responsibility for raising their children. But the state has a growing tendency to overreach its proper role and undermine parental authority. We will bring you up to date.

Gospel Freedom

Free speech and religious liberty are under threat because of a failure to understand true tolerance and the roots of our historic democratic freedoms. The impact of equality law is just one example. We will explain more.

Gender Ideology

Radical gender ideology is being pushed by the media and the Government plans to make it easier to change legal sex. At the same time, transgenderism is being promoted in schools. We will consider how Christians should respond.
For all the details about these meetings please see our leaflet.

Fantasy World – The world of Anti-Science – Anti-Reality

Listening to the news today you could be forgiven for wondering if you are listening to a novel or watching a film version of it.  A novel written by a very clever person who can weave truth and fantasy together so that after a few chapters you have lost the plot and have no real way of telling what is news and what is story-telling fantasy.

For most people today, I suppose Walt Disney represents the world of fantasy. Who doesn’t remember watching one of his famous films when you were a child. And, of course, many of us still watch films telling a good yarn.

However, Disney didn’t invent fantasy situations. Countless writers before his time have summoned up fantasy worlds for their readers. But let’s go back to the real source of fantasy. In order to do this, you need to visit the source book of reality, and that means the Holy Bible.

The Bible begins with the famous words In the beginning God. That is ultimate reality. Humanity cannot go back beyond that.  For that matter neither can angels or any other created beings.  Which leads us neatly into the real beginnings of fantasy.

In the Bible, Isaiah 14 records a judgement against the king of Babylon, and against all rulers who raise themselves up against GOD and his plans and his people. Verses 13-14 are always taken to represent the sin and judgement of Satan.

“How you are fallen from heaven,
O Lucifer, son of the morning!
How you are cut down to the ground,
You who weakened the nations!
13 For you have said in your heart:
‘I will ascend into heaven,
I will exalt my throne above the stars of God;
I will also sit on the mount of the congregation
On the farthest sides of the north;
14 I will ascend above the heights of the clouds,
I will be like the Most High.’
15 Yet you shall be brought down to Sheol,
To the lowest depths of the Pit.” (Isaiah 14:12)

Lucifer – or Satan – was apparently a very beautiful Angel, holding what probably is the highest rank among angels, that of the Cherubim – or Cherubs.

And he, it seems somewhat ahead of the rest.  He saw that he was so beautiful, and felt himself to be so powerful that he wanted to exalt himself. In fact – he wanted to be equal with the Most High – God himself.

So pride entered a perfect universe, and a world of Fantasy began. An unreal world of Anti-reality and Anti-science. This is the ultimate beginning of Fantasy.

But let us bring this to the world of humanity, the world we live in today.

Not being content with living in his own Fantasy World, which presumably he does to this day, Satan determined to export his Fantasy World to humanity!

Genesis 3 tells the story – real history – of God’s human creation. Adam and Eve were created perfect.  That is to say without fault or sin.

We can only imagine what that must have been like. A beautiful world – the Garden of Eden, Paradise,  birthplace of human history. The place where they met with God every day. Bodies so perfect that we can only imagine their freedom, energy, power, etcetera.

This is the world that Satan determined to invest with Fantasy. He approached Eve presumably seeing her as the one who had, second hand, received God’s command not to eat of the tree. That is to say, she received the command through a man, her husband Adam, and therefore she was perhaps a little more vulnerable.

He spoke to her and sowed in her mind two ideas. One – that either Adam was lying or God was, but that in any case God’s word could not be relied on. Indeed that He was not truthful and could not be trusted. And Two, that she could by her own actions, by her own power, indeed by her disobedient actions become like God himself.

Alas, Eve believed Satan’s deceiving lies took fruit from the tree and ate it. Then she took some to Adam and he ate it. The two of them disobeyed God and A World of Fantasy began!

Alas, the world of Adam and Eve,  was truly an unreal world, in regard to its hopes and dreams. But truly a real one in regard to its judgements.  Including hard labour, in both senses.  Thorns and weeds, painful toil and sorrow, deceit and lies and death.  Which is very real especially for all unredeemed humanity for whom death has not been transformed and is still a monster.  A monster that leads to the ultimate monster and ultimate reality ….  HELL.

By now you are probably saying, Look – that’s all thousands of years ago, it’s ancient history. How does that affect us?

Strangely enough, it affects us in so many ways that it would be difficult to exaggerate them.  Satan is The Deceiver and his world is a world of lies, deceit, confusion and twisted crookedness.  A Fantasy World where nothing is as it seems,  and you cannot be sure of anything.

God is real, straight, true and reliable.  None of this applies to Satan.  When he spoke to Eve,  he revealed that his words and actions were not true, straight or reliable.  But were twisted, crooked, confusing and misleading.  In fact, lies.

In John 8v44 Jesus himself said to some Jews who were questioning him,

“You belong to your father, the devil, and you want to carry out your father’s desires. He was a murderer from the beginning, not holding to the truth, for there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks his native language, for he is a liar and the father of lies.” John 8v44

Satan is a liar, and the one who invented lying.  Alas, humanity has inherited from  Adam and Eve their fallenness, their crookedness, their confusion, and of course, a tendency to lie whenever it seems helpful. Not to mention a tendency not to trust or believe God!

The world Satan has “created” with his lies and deceit is a world of confusion, with no straight lines just twisted crookedness.   Lies … water in the desert … a mirage. In other words a Fantasy World.  An anti-truth,  anti-science,  anti-reality world!

But how does this work out?  In the world we live in today, please tell us what this means

Well.  It means that you and I live in a real world that God has created. A physical world – existing in time and space.  Where science can be done because the physical word has been created with standards and measurements.

We have yards feet and inches or meters and centimetres etcetera, that are always the same – always have the same value.

This world of reality has mass, light, life and death and reality.  It is a world we can trust.  We can measure it, weigh it, etcetera.  But we also live in the world that Satan has invented.  Where nothing can be trusted where everything is so confusing.  A world of mystery and confusion.  A world that inhabits our minds.

This world of reality has mass, light, life and death and reality.  It is a world we can trust.

YOU say,  But I live in the real world of science, not an imaginary world of confusion and lies. Really?

We can actually see all around us that people all seem to have a bias of some kind or another.  If you imagined that teachers, doctors, nurses, scientists, etc were totally unbiased, just take off their white coats /uniform, and underneath they are human beings who have inherited Adam and Eve’s nature.  The nature of Satan’s confusion and corruption.

Are our politicians always telling you the truth?  Or just the truth as they see it?

With all the bias they have grown up with and embellished!!

Oh dear. Not just politicians – God bless them and not just car salesmen and estate agents – may the Lord be with them – or even televangelists!

But everyone.

We are all confused about some things. Why are there so many philosophies?

And why are philosophers and psychiatrists objects of humour and mistrust? Why are there so many religions?  And so many preachers, prophets and gurus? And so few of them really trusted?  Confusion reigns.  We do not live in a world of straight lines.

Let me give you a few examples ….

  1. The world of the atheist.  God says that the atheist is a fool. He has swallowed Satan’s lies. Evidence for the existence of God is everywhere, but the atheist makes it his business to explain it away, and invents a Fantasy World.
  2. The world of the evolutionist.  Or the world of Darwinism – or the new/revised Darwinism.  What unspeakable rubbish is poured out upon us through the BBC, the Open University and the education system? That evolution is a scientific certainty and that without any intelligent input, and by sheer chance – over millions of years microbes emerged from some invented primaeval seas, and then turned into all kinds of creatures and men. Sheer fantasy.
  3. The world of the Abortionist.  The idea/theory/statement, that the child in the mother’s womb is not a human being until it can exist independently outside the womb.  Isn’t it amazing?  When a lioness conceives what is in her womb is a lion.  It has never been anything but a lion from the moment of conception, and it never will be anything but a lion. another fantisy.

And the reality is, that from the moment of conception what is in the human mother’s womb is a human being.  It is not something else. It can never become something else.  It has been from the beginning and will always be a human being. It has been alive and developing beautifully from the moment of the first cell.  And God makes it clear in His holy word the Bible, that from conception in the womb, He knows us through and through and has a purpose for each one of us.

You could look up … Isaiah 44v24 – and 49v15 or Psalm 139v13, or Jeremiah 1v5 and other scriptures to confirm this.

People who are basically anti-God, anti-Christianity, anti-Jesus, live in a fantasy anti-science world of their own making.  So that they can live by their own twisted rules instead of obeying God and living by His rules.

But beneath our fantasy worlds – fables – films, we all know, or we should all know that this is not the real world.  Of course we won’t always admit the truth. That is the essence of fantasy. We should be able to separate Disney from reality, but do we?  Are we willing to separate mere ideas from solid reality?

Let us look at  one of the most recent and most confusing and damaging of these ideas – The world of trans.

There are lots of other fantasy worlds, and I know I am almost certainly not allowed to say this, but I want to live in the world of truth, science,  facts and reality. Not in the world of lies, deceit, confusion and anti-science.

The fable is – If a male wants to become a female – or vice versa. If it feels like they are living in the wrong body, It’s okay to change your sex… err sorry… it’s okay to change your gender.

Of course, all sorts of things can be done to bring about changes to your body.

You can take hormones, or you can have surgery and you can use make-up.

Perhaps that should be make believe?

I am not trying to minimise the difficulties faced by a tiny minority of people who do have problems in the real world with a body which does not conform to our normal expectations of male or female.  But they are in reality a very small minority group. They need all the understanding and help we can give them. Please see more below.

However, the reality is that most trans people – and the ones I want to speak about – are not in that group and are simply fantasising about their body image and their power to change it, and many are apparently encouraging their children to experiment with this fantasy. We are being told that even young children should be allowed/encouraged to be the sex/gender they want to be. Boys should be allowed to wear skirts to school, etcetera.

Hormones can increase or decrease the size of your breasts, or increase or decrease masculine features such as facial hair, or even change the sound of your voice.

Surgery can apparently – I haven’t researched this and don’t wish to – can create the external appearance of male or female sex organs. In anyone who does not have a very sound physical need for that it sounds really creepy to me.

Make-up can conceal certain features and/or enhance others.

But the bottom line is, this is a fantasy world ! A trans who started life as a man is still a man. And a trans woman is still a woman. Every cell in the human body is permanently marked male or female. So we have a fantasy world. A world of anti-science, anti-fact and anti-reality.

We, the British Public, are being told to believe it, accept it and swallow this deception whole.  In fact, Live in this fantasy world! And our children and grandchildren will be  being fed a diet of lies and deceit, if the liberal elite have their way, and ofsted will back them up with the force of law.

Let me make it quite clear:

First, I do understand there are a few, an extremely small number in percentage terms, who do actually have a sexual identity problem. And who do need love,recognition and understanding and whatever help can be given them!

Secondly, I do not hate trans people.  I feel sorry for them, and I wish I could help them. I will pray for them and hope they find the help they need.

However, I do not wish to be drawn or coerced into their fantasy world !

I wish, please, to be left alone to live in the real world. The world of truth,  straight lines and reality.  The world in which genuine science can be done, and where truth is recognised and common sense prevails.

Alas. our Government has embraced this fantasy world, and enacted laws that pretty much enforce acceptance of it!

What can we do in response to all this ?

  1. Live in the real world
  2. Try to stay on the right side of wrong laws
  3. Pray earnestly for our Government
  4. If you meet/know trans people
    Love them and pray for them.
    Try to understand them and be as helpful as reality allows
  5. Do not be overcome by evil Lies-deceit-fantasy, but overcome evil with good.

And finally,

May the Lord bless you and keep you.

May He give you wisdom, and love and His own joy and peace

And above all

Keep your heart and mind free from the fantasy world of Satan!

AMEN
