LGBT Supporters Want School District to Stop Renting to Church. The Reason Why is Infuriating.

Published

Celebration Church, located in the great state of Texas, is like many houses of worship in the area, as it rents public school facilities as a location to hold Sunday worship services.

However, as you might expect, this is not sitting well with members of the LGBT community who want this stopped pronto. The reason why?

The church believes what the Bible says about homosexuality and has taken a stand against gay mirage. Yes, I actually meant “mirage.” There’s no such thing as gay marriage.

Celebration Church, based in Georgetown, has been holding services at the district’s Performing Arts Center since Aug. 26 under a short-term agreement with the district, the Austin American-Statesman reported.

Prior to the protests, the church’s website also said, “God has commanded that no intimate sexual activity be engaged in outside of marriage. Any form of sexual immorality, such as adultery, fornication, homosexuality, bisexual conduct, bestiality, incest, pornography or any attempt to change one’s sex, or disagreement with one’s biological sex, is sinful and offensive to God.” But those sentences are now gone.

“I feel like that kind of love gets us killed,” Candace Aylor, who’s with the group that’s been protesting Celebration Church, told KXAN.

“I’m not in favor of renting to any entity that doesn’t support our values … and that’s full inclusion of our LGBTQ community,” school board Trustee Ann Teich told the American-Statesman.

Jasmin Patel of AZAAD Austin, a social justice advocacy group focusing on people of South Asian heritage, added to the paper that the district’s contract “allows that space to be used for a church that spreads hateful messaging.”

The message here, in case you aren’t receiving it loud and clear, is that any set of values that don’t reflect their progressive views aren’t welcome. In other words, the only legitimate values one can hold are those that line up with the left’s. Anything else is morally wrong.

District officials told the Statesman they are finalizing two changes to the district’s regulations governing outside use of its facilities. Chief of Staff Jacob Reach told the American-Statesman the changes — which won’t be divulged until finalization — are not meant to discriminate against the church.

Teich told the paper the district could avoid accusations of trampling upon the church’s First Amendment rights with regulations that say outside entities must support the district’s core values in order to use its facilities.

“We have to be careful. We can’t exclude religious groups,” she added to the American-Statesman. “If an organization doesn’t support the district’s values, then I would say we are within our rights to not let that organization rent our facilities.”

If they’re truly concerned about not infringing on the rights of the religious, they should simply tell the LGBT community to get over themselves.

These folks constantly claim to fight for “equality,” but that’s not what they want at all. What they want is protected class status and for all of society to reaffirm to them that there lifestyle is accepted and normalized.

Well, hate to break it to them, but the Bible, the Word of God Almighty, says homosexuality isn’t normal. Therefore, since He makes the rules of reality, that means it isn’t normal. To say it is, is to make God a liar.

Call it “intolerant” if you will. Truth is truth.

US Women’s Soccer Team Skips Representing U.S.A. at Opening Ceremony

The ultra-woke U.S. women’s soccer team — big losers thus far — decided to skip representing the U.S.A. during the Olympics opening ceremonies.

The ultra-woke U.S. women’s soccer team — big losers thus far — decided to skip representing the U.S.A. during the opening ceremonies at the Tokyo Olympics Friday. The famously anti-American soccer team claimed that they could not attend because they were scheduled to attend practice during the opening event, according to WXIA-TV. “Obviously we can’t be there, I don’t know who scheduled us to practice at this time,” chief anti-American team star Megan Rapinoe told the media. The women’s soccer team was all about protesting against the U.S.A. during its first Olympics game this week but lost to New Zealand in a crushing 3-0 final. Rapinoe added that this year’s gams are different than past games. “It looks quite different and feels quite different than in the past, but all of us are thrilled to be here,” she said. Team members Abby Dahlkemper and Rapinoe enacted a lame “private parade” and posted it to Twitter: https://twitter.com/USWNT/status/1418557013739536390 The America-hating women’s soccer team was not the only American team that skipped the opening ceremonies. Both the women’s and the men’s U.S. gymnastics teams also skipped the ceremonies. They similarly held their own version of the parade” https://twitter.com/InsideGym/status/1418539840564572160 Follow Warner Todd Huston on Facebook at: facebook.com/Warner.Todd.Huston.

Kid Suicides, Mental Health Hospitalizations Surge Worse than Coronavirus During Lockdowns

Kids have had it particularly bad during the coronavirus lockdowns, but not because of the virus, because of the lockdowns.

New research has found that kids have had it particularly bad during the coronavirus lockdowns, but not because of the virus, because of the lockdowns themselves. Kids ended up dying of suicides and being hospitalized for mental health illnesses at a high rate, according to a new study. Once again, we see that this “cure” was far worse than virus ever was, especially for young people. Per Just the News: Jeanne Noble, director of COVID response in the UCSF emergency department, is finishing an academic manuscript on the mental health toll on kids from lockdown policies. She shared a presentation on its major points with Just the News. Suicides in the Golden State last year jumped by 24% for Californians under 18 but fell by 11% for adults, showing how children were uniquely affected by “profound social isolation and loss of essential social supports traditionally provided by in-person school,” the presentation says. Children requiring emergency mental health services jumped last year in Children’s Hospital of Oakland, and children’s hospitalizations for eating disorders more than doubled at UCSF Children’s Hospital. In January, the latter’s emergency department (ED) at Mission Bay hit a record for “highest proportion of suicidal children in ER” at 21%. The study authors charged that the CDC is bringing serious harm to children with its coronavirus policies. Just the News added that kids are facing more than the virus. They are also facing an “atrophy” of the interpersonal skills because of masks and lost school time, and they are suffering great bouts of depression. It is even harder on teens, especially those close to graduation, because they face a stymied start to college, or their careers. This also brings severe depression.
