LGBTQ month after heated meeting

The Miami-Dade School Board in Florida rejected a proposed LGBTQ month for students after a contentious three-hour meeting Wednesday night. The measure would have recognized October as an official period of LGBTQ recognition in the district’s schools and taught older students about two Supreme Court cases related to gay rights. Backers of the proposal argued that the initiative would ease stigmas plaguing the community—with some public speakers likening opposition to Nazi marginalization of specific groups. Opponents asserted that the plan was tantamount to “indoctrination” and would introduce sexualized subject matter to Miami-Dade schools without adequate parental awareness.(Snip)“LGBTQ people suffered a higher rate of suicidal ideation

Homosexuals make up maybe 3% of the population (with many of them just being messed up teenagers who have been indoctrinated but aren't really homosexuals at all). Christians make up probably 80% of the population. When do Christians get "Christian Pride Month" in our schools?!?!?!?!? When do governments start kowtowing to our every demand?!?!?!?

Combine the gay crap with Halloween and you have a real recipe for satanic indoctrination. High fives to the board for rejecting this bull. Our children are to be protected from pedophiles and perverted grooming and the indoctrination of sexual confusion and orientation. In a couple of cities you might have heard of, every month was gay pride month. In the end, an Angel of God rained fire and brimstone down upon them and killed every living thing in them. Soddom and Gomorrah were the twin cities of gay pride and perverted sexual immorality which was such an abomination to God that he wiped them from the face of the earth never to come back again. So pick your choice.

No. LGBTQ people suffer a higher suicide rate because deep down they know that what they are doing is wrong.

No amount of school indoctrination will reduce suicide/depression/anxiety rates in the gay community. What they are experiencing is not coming from the outside; it’s coming from deep within.

Homos have always been around. They stayed in the closet as that was part of their dangerous fun, meeting in dark places and blackmailing people in high places. Now that that perversion is legal and accepted, men in power who "tried it on" cannot lose their positions.

Boise Pride Fest Postpones ‘Drag Kids’

The annual Boise Pride Fest, slated to take place September 9-11, has postponed its “Drag Kids” performance after it caught the national spotlight, although the group is citing “increased safety concerns”—not the inappropriate nature of the event itself. The original festival proudly advertised a children’s drag show, describing it as a “show like none other” featuring children as young as 11 years old. “You have watched the Queens and Kings and now it is time to see the Kids,” a pamphlet describing the event reads.(Snip)“They are brave, beautiful and deserve their chance to be in the spotlight, and we want to give that to them

A recent psychology graduate in Mexico could lose his license to practice after officials at the Autonomous University of Baja California in Ensanada expressed concern over his strong defense of the family and the sanctity of life during a commencement address. Christian Cortez Perez, whose top-of-the-class ranking in the university’s School of Medicine and Psychology earned him the right to deliver the June 27 speech, spoke against what he termed “radical gender ideology” and moves to redefine the family, evoking catcalls and walkouts during the graduation ceremony.

Some of the most violent crimes in America are being carried out by its youngest members of society and those who deal with youth offenders say the trend won’t reverse anytime soon. The startling surge of lawlessness began during the pandemic and, in cities large and small that bear the brunt of the crime wave, leaders fret that there are no easy solutions.(Snip)Analysts say the rise in juvenile violent crime is caused by several factors, including absentee fathers, shuttered schools during the pandemic, and soft-on-crime district attorneys either refusing to press charges or seeking lenient sentences.

The city Department of Education is rolling out the red carpet to asylum-seeking migrants, helping them cut through red tape to get at least 1,500 border-crossing kids enrolled in public schools. The influx of school-age children–among the roughly 8,000 newcomers bused to Manhattan since May by Texas Gov. Greg Abbott–stands to help the enrollment-starved DOE reap millions of dollars in new revenue. More than half–or $12,725–of the DOE’s $25,334 per-student funding is picked up by the state and federal government, according to estimates provided by the watchdog Independent Budget Office.(Snip)“These students will need additional services–including language instruction, and social

On Wednesday, The Foundation for Individual Rights and Expression (FIRE) released its third annual College Free Speech Rankings for the 2022-2023 school year.

Homeland Security on Thursday announced it has adopted a new lenient policy on immigrants’ use of welfare, tossing a Trump-era policy that would have been far stricter. Under the new system, known as the “public charge” rule, immigrants will only be penalized for potential welfare use if the government believes they will eventually become “primarily dependent” on government payments. By contrast, living in government housing, using Medicaid for health coverage or accepting food stamps wouldn’t count against an immigrant. Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas said the new rule will deliver “fair and humane treatment of legal immigrants.” “Consistent with America’s bedrock values, we will not penalize individuals for choosing to access

Dear Steve, You ask why doctors are silent. The electronic medical records (EMRs) are a ball and chain to physicians. We are tracked through them.

I would not have received 5 letters if I killed someone in negligence or malpractice. If I have my license pulled, I will no longer be able to help my patients. I speak to patients on a one-on-one basis, but speaking out would destroy my family.

CBS News has a big scoop this afternoon. The industry group that sets international standards for credit card companies has decided to create a new code for the purchase of guns and ammo that, while not identifying the exact purchases, will separate those items from the more generic category they had been lumped in with previously. Merchant category codes are made up of four digits and are used across all sorts of industries as a means to classify retailers, while not revealing individual product purchases. Credit card companies currently lump firearm retailers in with other outlets, classifying them as either “5999: Miscellaneous retail stores” or “5941: Sporting Goods Stores.”

NEW YORK — Payment processor Visa Inc. said Saturday that it plans to start separately categorizing sales at gun shops, a major win for gun control advocates who say it will help better track suspicious surges of gun sales that could be a prelude to a mass shooting. But the decision by Visa, the world’s largest payment processor, will likely provoke the ire of gun rights advocates and gun lobbyists, who have argued that categorizing gun sales would unfairly flag an industry when most sales do not lead to mass shootings. It joins Mastercard and American Express, which also said they plan to move forward with categorizing gun shop sales.

King Charles III, who ascended to the throne on Thursday, has chosen to rule with the name he was given at birth. But as a British king it comes with baggage. Charles I, born in 1600, endured a stormy reign that ended with his execution 49 years later. In between, he provoked a civil war and erased the notion of an all-powerful monarchy—or indeed, of any monarchy at all for the 11 years after his beheading outside Banqueting House in London. Charles II, his son, chose to lay low on the European continent for what came to be known

In early September, Joe Biden delivered what has now been dubbed his “red speech.” Somehow, the content managed to be worse than the presentation. The president railed against “MAGA Republicans,” declaring them enemies of the state and a threat to the republic. Truly, it was the most obscene speech a president has given since the popularization of modern national addresses. Far from being a unifying figure, Biden chose to drive a knife through the heart of the country, and it didn’t take long for the walk-backs to begin. Pretty soon, the president began insisting that he wasn’t talking about “mainstream Republicans” and that the “ultra MAGA” represented
