I have never understood why anyone would consider the propaganda arm of the bizarre cult, “The Unification Church” founded by the strangely disturbed Sun Myung Moon, to be a legitimate news paper. The waste of trees known as The Washington Times has come out with an editorial (If you would consider the shit hurling of caged monkeys on drugs to be an editorial) denouncing efforts by TS/TG people in New York to make the changing of birth certificates to reflect a lived reality easier.
Of course this places the Moonie Cult in good company with other Taliban Christo-Fascist cults like the Catholic Church.
When will people wake up to the reality of there not being any god, or at least any god that is reflected in the religions of any of these cults that push accepting oppression in this life because maybe there will be a better life after you die bullshit.
Religion is one of the main pillars of oppression.
This is why atheists and anarchists alike proclaim, “No Gods, No Masters.”
Why any LGBT/T person embrace such life denying bullshit is beyond me. It is like believing in Santa Claus after the age 5 or so.

EDITORIAL: The latest birth certificate scandal
New York City Health Department confused by gender benders
Monday, April 4, 2011
Individuals who claim they’re “transgender” are suing the New York City Health Department over what they say is discrimination. These people are upset because the city won’t change the sex listed on their birth certificates unless they’ve had elaborate surgery to refashion their private parts and received subsequent psychiatric evaluations attesting to the permanence of their supposed “transition” to the opposite gender.
The claimants want the bureaucracy to make it easier to change the sex that was recorded at birth, noting that parents fixing mistakes (typos) in listing a child’s sex only have to provide a letter from the birth hospital. “Knowing that it was a mistake in the first place, and having that fixed, is pretty important to me,” said Joann Prinzivalli, who was born Paul yet lives as a woman.
Calling the accurate sex recorded at a birth “a mistake” is the misleading yet predictable result of a creeping activist agenda quietly transforming the country. There is disagreement in confused medical circles on whether believing oneself to be the gender opposite to that indicated by one’s physical characteristics and sex chromosomes is a medical condition or a psychiatric disorder. The American Medical Association supports treatment that includes radical surgery. The American Psychiatric Association’s Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders classifies it as an identity disorder, though the shrinks are under pressure to change that in the next edition.

And now from the wonderful folks who brought us the Inquisition, Crusades and numerous instances of Genocide
And because we would rather talk about something other than our misogyny and the pesky little issue of out priests engaging in pedophilia at a rate that puts NAMBLA to shame

Exchanging the Truth of God for a Lie: Transgender Activists, Cultural Revolution
By Deacon Keith Fournier
The “Gender Identity Movement” is dangerous. It is a part of a broader Cultural Revolution which substitutes an entirely different view of the dignity of the human person, human freedom, human flourishing, human sexuality, marriage and the family and the moral basis of a free society than that which formed Western Civilization.
Anyone who maintains that there is no reference to the rejection of homosexual practices in the Bible has to remove this entire chapter and many other biblical references. They must also get rid of early Church documents which uniformly condemn homosexual practices. Paul refers to these behaviors as resulting from “degrading passions”. He details what happened as a result, “their females exchanged natural relations for unnatural, and the males likewise gave up natural relations with females and burned with lust for one another. Males did shameful things with males and thus received in their own persons the due penalty for their perversity.” (Romans 1:26, 27)
One sign of the decline of western civilization is not only the reemergence of such “degrading passions” and the behaviors which result, but a cultural revolution which now demands that these behaviors be recognized in the positive law and people engaging in them be given an equal legal status to marriage if they so request. Further, that the sexual acts involved in these behaviors, and the lifestyles chosen as a result, be called a civil right which the rest of society is compelled to accept and accommodate. One of the many fronts in this Cultural Revolution is called “transgender activism”
In this whole mix we also face the growing activism being undertaken by people who undergo what are euphemistically referred to as “Sex Change” or “Gender Reassignment” surgeries. Though those who actually suffer from “Gender Identity Disorder” (GID) deserve empathy, the facts remain; no such surgery can accomplish a change of gender or sexual identity. In effect, they just mutilate the body and destroy the bodily integrity of the person. Every single human cell contains chromosomes which identify whether we are male or female. That cannot be changed. It is a given. In fact, it is a gift.
In a culture where “freedom” is redefined as a “right” to choose anything and liberty has degenerated into license, the “newspeak” of the age calls the instrumental use of the body of another “sexual freedom”. Sadly, the same spirit of the age fails to recognize the integral unity of the human person, body, soul and spirit, and has turned the human body into a machine with parts which can be interchanged.

Deacon Keith Fournier is a conservative lawyer from Virginia who has waged a lifelong crusade to return us to the morals of the 19th century. The man is an ass and one of those people who should be stood up against the wall, come the revolution. I just love the way he bandies about medical and psychological terms with wild abandon (almost said gay abandon, but oh, deary no, not our dear deacon). I read a wonderful piece he wrote some time ago as apologist for Glenn Beck. What is the opposite of a Saint? Whatever that is, he’s one.

Ah yes… Come the revolution… A phrase well remembered by red diaper babies…

About 90-95% of the comments on the Times editorial have been condemning of the piece.
I’ve made a few comments, and as usual, some know-nothing Teabagger called me a “Marxist”. I just had to laugh, because like these morons throwing the word “Socialist” around, they wouldn’t know one even if someone bit them in the ass!

I consider being called a commie a complement even though I am more of a anarchist, commie is close enough.
