    Add this to the growing list of pro homosexual/transgender activism of Donald Trump:

    Transgender Illegal Aliens Get Special Treatment, Hormone Therapy Under Policy Issued by Trump’s Border Czar

    Immigration centers are dangerously overcrowded yet the federal agency slammed with an onslaught of migrants provides a separate unit for transgender illegal immigrants as well as costly hormone therapy and a number of other perks. Thanks to an Obama policy continued by the Trump administration, Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) gives transgender illegal aliens special treatment, including their own detention center in New Mexico that offers hair and makeup classes, a recreation area, gym, television rooms, a lab and pharmacy. There are also meeting areas for trans detainees to consult with free legal services provided by advocacy groups. American taxpayers furnish the hormone therapy, which “is not cheap,” according to an ICE director quoted in a recent news report about the New Mexico transgender facility, which opened in 2017.

    Have I mentioned that since the psychological profession (both APA's) have been hijacked by the LGBT movement, it's become a total joke?

    Psychology Today: People Refusing To Date Transgenders Is ‘Dehumanizing’

    June 18, 2019

    If you are a heterosexual cisgendered person who only wishes to date heterosexual cisgendered people, then shame on you for dehumanizing transgenders and the non-binary, according to a recent article published in Psychology Today.

    The article explores a study written by Karen L. Blair and Rhea Ashley Hoskins in the Journal of Social and Personal Relationships, which essentially chastises people as bigots for the sin of being attracted to a man who is an actual man or a woman who is an actual woman — while also arguing that the prevailing attitude contributes to the psychological harm of transgenderism.
    When first conducting their study, Blair and Hoskins asked close to 1,000 participants what kind of partner they preferred and gave them the following options:
    a cisgender woman
    a cisgender man
    a transgender woman
    a transgender man
    a person with a non-binary gender identification

    Unsurprisingly, 87.5% of those polled said they prefer the first two options depending on which way they swing: Cisgender man or woman, respectively. Non-binary and transgender people were at the bottom and typically were only chosen by people who identified as bi-sexual, gay, or some other type of sexuality. For heteros, the results were other cisgender heteros. The authors find this deeply problematic and believe that attitudes need to change.

    i.e if you're a guy and don't find transvestites or genitally mutilated men pretending to be women attractive, then there's something very very wrong with you, not them.

    [Trump's] US Department of State Praises Botswana for Decriminalizing Homosexual Behavior

    June 14, 2019

    The United States on Thursday welcomed the decriminalization of homosexuality in Botswana, calling on other countries to follow its example.
    “We are pleased by #Botswana’s High Court decision to decriminalize same-sex relationships — an historic moment in protecting human rights for all,” State Department spokeswoman Morgan Ortagus said on Twitter.
    “Congrats to the brave people who worked for this outcome. We hope other countries follow Botswana’s example.”

    U.S. Insurance Companies Might Now Have To Cover PrEP For All

    June 12, 2019

    The United States Prevention Services Task Force has given a grade A recommendation that private insurers must, by law, pay for PrEP without any deductibles, co-pays, or co-insurance costs falling on the consumer.
    The move is groundbreaking in that it will help motivate those most at-risk to start practicing PrEP, a prevention strategy that when used as directed makes it virtually impossible to contract HIV.
    According to the Affordable Care Act, which is the current law of the land, users of grade A and B recommended strategies should not be asked for co-payments or other cost sharing. As a result, the new recommendation from the Task Force is likely to influence insurance companies to fall in line with the health bill's instruction. (However, people might still be required to pay for blood tests and clinic visits.)
    Truvada, the only FDA-approved drug sold as PrEP, has seen uphill battles in the last few months due to its high market price of nearly $3,000 per month.

    Among Those With HIV, Additional Health Problems Occur in Six Clusters

    April 10, 2019

    The additional health problems, known as comorbidities, that people with HIV experience fall into six clusters, according to an analysis of two groups of Western European individuals that skewed older, aidsmap reports.

    Presenting their findings at the 2019 Conference on Retroviruses and Opportunistic Infections (CROI) in Seattle, researchers analyzed data from two cohort studies to parse patterns behind the existence of comorbidities among HIV-positive individuals...

    Analyzing the comorbidities to determine which are more likely to co-occur in individual cohort members than might be expected by chance, the researchers identified the following six clusters:

    Cardiovascular disease, including angina, coronary bypass surgery, heart attack, heart failure, high blood pressure, peripheral vascular disease and end-stage kidney disease
    Sexually transmitted infections, including gonorrhea, lymphogranuloma venereum, chlamydia and hepatitis C virus
    Mental health, including depression, anxiety and panic attack
    Cancers, including blood cancers, skin cancer and solid organ cancer
    Metabolic conditions, including abnormal blood lipids, lipodystrophy and high blood pressure
    Chest and other infections, including cytomegalovirus, pneumonia, dizziness and vertigo, asthma and bronchitis and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, and chest infection.

    I was sharing the invaluable article written by Dr. Archie P. Jones entitled

    Civil Government: The Neglected Ministry
    http://vftonline.org/VFTfiles/thesis...P_%20Jones.htm

    with someone from my church today and realized that after all of the years that I've studied the article and shared it with others, I never really looked into the term

    "sins of omission".

    What does the Bible say about sins of omission?

    People sometimes speak of sins of commission and sins of omission. Sins of commission are those sinful actions that are proactively done. Lying or stealing are examples of sins of commission. A sin of omission is a sin that takes place because of not doing something that is right. Examples could include not praying, not standing up for what is right, or not sharing Christ with others.

    James 4:17 is often used as a key verse regarding sins of omission: "So whoever knows the right thing to do and fails to do it, for him it is sin." This overarching theme provides the basis for the concept of a sin of omission.

    In Luke 10:30-37 Jesus gives a clear example of a sin of omission in the account of the Good Samaritan. Two different men came upon an injured man who had been robbed and was lying alongside the road. Both men passed by without helping. A third man stopped and helped, proving himself as the one who did the right thing. The two men who did not help could be considered as those committing a sin of omission.

    Matthew 25 offers another example regarding the sin of omission. Verses 44-45 note, "Then they also will answer, saying, 'Lord, when did we see you hungry or thirsty or a stranger or naked or sick or in prison, and did not minister to you?' Then he will answer them, saying, 'Truly, I say to you, as you did not do it to one of the least of these, you did not do it to me.'" Here Jesus clearly indicates that our lack of action can be considered sinful.

    First John 3:17-18 offers yet another example: "But if anyone has the world's goods and sees his brother in need, yet closes his heart against him, how does God's love abide in him? Little children, let us not love in word or talk but in deed and in truth." John commanded those who follow Jesus to live in ways that show this love to others.

    Matthew 5:16 offers an important reason why Christians are to act in ways that help others and not commit sins of omission: "In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven." Such actions bring glory to God and point others to God who may not yet know Him. Galatians 6:9 adds, "And let us not grow weary of doing good, for in due season we will reap, if we do not give up."

    The apostle Paul was clear that we are not to be conformed to the world, but rather transform the world through godly living: "Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect" (Romans 12:2). This attitude and corresponding actions are vital in both avoiding sins of commission and sins of omission.
    https://www.compellingtruth.org/sin-of-omission.html

    "Not standing up for what's right", as in voting for someone who you recognize is evil, but you attempt to justify in your own mind and to others that he's not as evil as his opponent, and then continuing to support him even though he goes against the ways of God.

    Have I mentioned that this nations main psychology/psychiatric organizations are frauds?

    U.S. psychoanalysts apologize for labeling homosexuality an illness

    6-22-19

    The American Psychoanalytic Association apologized on Friday for previously treating homosexuality as a mental illness, saying its past errors contributed to discrimination and trauma for LGBTQ people.

    It may be the first U.S. medical or mental health organization to issue such an apology. Although psychiatrists declassified homosexuality as a disorder in 1973 and psychologists came around nearly 20 years later, the APsaA says it is unaware of any related professional group to have apologized. "It is long past time to recognize and apologize for our role in the discrimination and trauma caused by our profession and say, 'We are sorry,'" according a statement by Dr. Lee Jaffe, president of APsaA. The group uses that abbreviation to distinguish it from the American Psychiatric Association (APA).
    Jaffe told Reuters he will deliver the apology on Friday at the opening session of the group's 109th annual meeting in San Diego. Jaffe said his group has long been active in promoting LGBTQ rights but had yet to put its contrition into words.
    "It's hard to admit that one has been so wrong," Jaffe said.

    The change in the medical community's thinking about homosexuality and Friday's apology both stem from a seminal event in LGBTQ history 50 years ago: the Stonewall uprising.
    Patrons of a New York City gay bar called the Stonewall Inn fought back against police harassment in the early morning hours of June 28, 1969, triggering the start of the modern movement for the rights for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer people.
    New York police recently apologized for the raid and discriminatory laws of the time, which prompted APsaA to issue its apology, said Dr. Jack Drescher, an APsaA member and leading authority on the history of psychiatric and psychological treatment of LGBTQ people.
    New York is expecting as many as 4 million people for the 50th anniversary of Stonewall next week, and gay pride parades will be celebrated around the world on June 30.

    https://www.msn.com/en-us/health/hea...ess/ar-AADdzjr

    As I'd shared in posts in earlier threads, the Stonewall Inn was a place where underage homosexual's and transvestites hung out where they received booze, drugs and money from chicken hawks for their 'services'.

    In any event, are reparations or massive class action lawsuits in order against those psychiatric/psychological organizations because at one time (before the days of the 'gaystapo') they classified a group of people with serious psychological issues as 'mentally ill'?

    Moreover, practically no African AIDS patients have pneumocystis pneumonia, dementia or Kaposi's sarcoma - the signal diseases of AIDS in the US and Europe.
    This just isn’t true. During my time as an administrator at a Christian-run hospice and medical clinic, one of my tasks was to collate and digitally record the last 10 years of death records that were only recorded on paper. One of the things that struck me, apart from the average age of death being just 48, was just how many people had either Kaposi’s sarcoma or pneumonia on their death records. Ahhh but records can be faked you say - to which I ask why an evangelical Christian ministry run by a British Christian doctor would fake such a thing?

    Homosexuality is just as harmful in other parts of the world as it is in our part of the world. Hence the reason a lot of African countries are fighting the decriminalization of homosexuality by the rainbow flag waving Trump administration tooth and nail.

Ahhh but records can be faked you say - to which I ask why an evangelical Christian ministry run by a British Christian doctor would fake such a thing?
    Looking at the medical technology that is required to diagnose Kaposi's Sarcoma, I just find it difficult to believe that impoverished African countries, countries that can't even supply many areas with fresh water, could afford the following to make a correct HIV diagnosis:

    Biopsy
    To be sure that a lesion is caused by KS, the doctor will need to take a small sample of tissue from the lesion and send it to a lab to be checked. This is called a biopsy. A specially trained doctor called a pathologist can often diagnose KS by looking at the cells in the biopsy sample in the lab.

    Chest x-ray
    Your lungs may be x-rayed to see if KS is there. If the x-ray shows something abnormal, other tests, such as a CT scan, might be needed to tell for sure if it is KS or some other condition.
    For people known to have KS in the lung, chest x-rays can be used to see how the disease is responding to treatment.

    Gastrointestinal endoscopy
    One or more of these tests might be done when the doctor suspects that KS is in the stomach or intestines and is causing problems.
    Upper endoscopy (also called esophagogastroduodenoscopy, or EGD)

    Colonoscopy
    Colonoscopy is used to look inside the large intestine (colon and rectum). Before this test can be done, the colon and rectum must be cleaned out to remove any stool. This often means drinking a large amount of a liquid laxative the night before and the morning of the procedure, and spending a lot of time in the bathroom.

    Capsule endoscopy
    Capsule endoscopy is a way to look at the small intestine. It is not truly a type of endoscopy, since it doesn’t use an endoscope. Instead, you swallow a capsule (about the size of a large vitamin pill) that contains a light source and a very small camera. Like any other pill, the capsule goes through the stomach and into the small intestine.

    Etc. etc. etc.

    The impoverished governments of Africa could afford to correctly diagnose HIV by having 25+ million people go through expensive HIV tests?

    I don't think so.

    Homosexuality is just as harmful in other parts of the world as it is in our part of the world. Hence the reason a lot of African countries are fighting the decriminalization of homosexuality by the rainbow flag waving Trump administration tooth and nail.
    Way to miss the point..

Based on the information that I posted on the subject, that isn't the case.

    Moreover, practically no African AIDS patients have pneumocystis pneumonia, dementia or Kaposi's sarcoma - the signal diseases of AIDS in the US and Europe.




    Looking at the medical technology that is required to diagnose Kaposi's Sarcoma, I just find it difficult to believe that impoverished African countries, countries that can't even supply many areas with fresh water, could afford the following to make a correct HIV diagnosis:

    Biopsy
    To be sure that a lesion is caused by KS, the doctor will need to take a small sample of tissue from the lesion and send it to a lab to be checked. This is called a biopsy. A specially trained doctor called a pathologist can often diagnose KS by looking at the cells in the biopsy sample in the lab.

    Chest x-ray
    Your lungs may be x-rayed to see if KS is there. If the x-ray shows something abnormal, other tests, such as a CT scan, might be needed to tell for sure if it is KS or some other condition.

    Apart from the fact we were a privately funded charity, that’s beside the point, it seems. Because we all know that the fallacious argument from incredulity is a valid argument, right?

    Clinicians at 26 HIV/AIDS clinics in Uganda and Kenya referred 739 patients with clinically suspected KS for skin biopsy. Overall, 77% (95% CI: 74%--80%) of these clinically suspected cases were determined pathologically to be KS after U.S. review; 19% had another diagnosis and 4% were indeterminate.


    Pretty good for “impoverished” African nations.

    The most interesting part about this article is its acknowledgement that:

    In much of the region, however, KS diagnosis is limited to clinical suspicion without pathologic confirmation.


    So even without these expensive tests, Ugandan and Kenyan doctors were apparently accurate 77% of the time. How is your incredulity in the face of facts?
