Dude looks like a lady: Traitor Bradley Manning wants to be ‘Chelsea’

Bradley Manning, the man who divulged classified information to the website Wikilinks, has since disclosed his desire for sex reassignment.  You see, Bradley now wants to be referred to as ‘Chelsea’.  Hey, whatever floats your boat, I guess.  But on top of his psychological disorder, he wants the U.S. military (U.S. taxpayer) to fund his psychosis.  Is there any rationale, which isn’t connected to political correctness which could be employed to defend this?

Well, the ACLU has made a statement regarding Manning and the military’s thus far refusal to provide hormone therapy and reassignment surgery.

(ACLU) — Yesterday, Private Manning was sentenced to serve 35 years in military prison. After sentencing, Manning issued a statement, in which she bravely called for a more just society and stated that if she is not pardoned, she “will serve [her] time knowing that sometimes you have to pay a heavy price to live in a free society.” Today Ms. Manning again spoke her truth and bravely came out as transgender: “I am Chelsea Manning,” she announced. “I am a female. Given the way that I feel, and have felt since childhood, I want to begin hormone therapy as soon as possible.” The Army responded by stating that it does “not provide hormone therapy or sex-reassignment surgery for gender identity disorder.” Not only should Chelsea Manning not have to pay the price of a 35-year prison term for sharing information with the press in the public interest, but she should also not have to experience the added punishment of going without necessary medical care.

[…]

Policies, like the one the Army announced this morning, that categorically withhold hormone therapy violate clearly established standards of care for the treatment of Gender Dysphoria as well as clear constitutional proscriptions against deliberate indifference to the serious medical needs of individuals in government custody. Gender Dysphoria (formerly known as gender identity disorder or GID) is a serious medical condition, and hormone therapy is part of the accepted medical protocol for treating this condition. Without the necessary treatment, Gender Dysphoria can cause severe psychological distress, anxiety and suicidal ideation. According to the World Professional Association for Transgender Health (WPATH), the leading medical authority on the proper standards of treatment for people with GID, “hormone therapy…is a medically necessary intervention for many transsexual, transgender, and gender nonconforming individuals with Dender Dysphoria.”

Manning cites a reason for this desired change that I’ve only ever heard from people who suffer from “gender identity disorder”, it’s the way he feels and has always felt that way.  Political activists have kept the public at bay by shouting down anyone who may think people like Manning need a psychiatrist instead of a scalpel.  They insist on placating to the psychology of the person because challenging sexuality has become an abomination in America as long as activists have a soapbox and a megaphone.

I find it disturbing and disappointing the way political activists like the ACLU and whoever they enlist to their cause treat transgender people.  The situation seems to be, someone, a man for example, believes they are a woman, but have been placed in the wrong physical body.  Rather than seeking psychological treatment in order to feel more in-line with their physical body, they are encouraged to surgically mutilate their body and suppress their physical attributes with hormone therapy.

Why is it assumed that the physical body and not their mental state is what is in need of alteration?  Why has it become an improper response to suggest that one’s body is correct, and it is the mind which should be changed?  At what point did sexual desires and one’s psychological state when it comes to sexuality become properly incorrigible?   Why is this incorrigibility limited to a person’s sexuality? What if a person genuinely believed they were meant to have only one arm instead of two?  Furthermore, what if they sought the approval of their parents to have one of their arms surgically removed; would loving parents secure a surgeon to remove a properly functioning arm simply because the person truly believed they were meant to be in a body with only one arm?  Of course not.  We would rightly condemn anyone who fostered such a notion.  We would demand the person who desired one arm seek therapy, there is obviously a problem with the psychological make-up of someone who would suggest the only way for them to feel comfortable in their own body is to surgically alter their body.

Bradley Manning is a man who mistakenly feels like he should be a woman.  He needs a psychiatrist, not a surgeon.  He needs medication which will aid him in recognizing there is a problem with his mind, not his body.  Manning doesn’t need support, he needs a reality check.  What is normal about suggesting that when one’s psychological desires conflict with their physical body, that it’s legitimate and proper to submit the body to the mind?  As society placates the LGBT activists for fear of being labeled ‘bigot’ or ‘homophobe’, it actually does more harm to the individual experiencing gender identity disorder.  Manning will likely never receive the medical attention he actually needs because politics have stifled honest discussions about sexuality.  What a shame.

Comments

  1. Well I don’t think he needs a therapist, but I sure as hell will not be footing the bill for his drugs or surgery.

    Here’s a novel idea: If the ACLU feels this strongly about it, then they can raise the money. I am all for free enterprise!

    • His believing he is a woman is in fact a psychological disorder, so I do believe he needs a therapist to help him understand he is in fact a man.

      Im with you, if he or organizations like the aclu or hrc or anyone else believe he “needs” surgery, hold a fundraiser.

      I do fear that with this administration the military’s no sex change policy isnt as firm as it once was given the change in acceptance of open homosexuality.

      • Would you pay for his psycho sex therapy? (No pun intended)

        • I think it would be appropriate for the government to treat his psychological disorder…as a disorder. I would not be ok with therapy which encourages or fosters his believing he is a woman. But therapy with a goal of helping him understand he is a man would be legitimate medical attention, in my opinion.

  2. Bad timing on his part. He’ll almost certainly be sent to “man prison”. Not the time to be announcing your womanhood.

  3. I don’t think we should pay for anything – we are paying enough to keep the guy in jail. I’m a firm believer that psycho therapy only makes things worse for the individual accepting such fraud.

    The man needs nothing but to accept the fact that he is a man. Even if he gets mutilated and takes hormones, he will always be a man. If he wants to be mutilated or see a pscyhobabbler, let HIM pay for it! I’m sick of everyone thinking they are entitled to government money for everything. The man is a traitor who in previous years would have been shot.

  4. Reblogged this on Disciple's Perspective and commented:
    Sex changes becoming more and more common. We are forced to question what is a man and what is a woman; in the midst of all this gender confusion. I pray that we look long and hard for the answers, with a sober mind set ourselves to the task. Let me know what y’all think.

  5. Getting the surgery does not solve the underlying psychologial problem.
    http://www.firstthings.com/article/2009/02/surgical-sex–35

  6. I used to argue back and forth with this disgrace who claimed to be a woman but was in fact a man. The funny thing is that he was an ardent supporter of abortion. That was actually the entire purpose of his blog, defending “choice.” It’s ironic because even though he referred to himself as a woman, he openly advocated for a procedure that he would never require, no matter how many surgeries or hormone therapies he underwent. And apparently he did have a sexual reassignment surgery done, or so he said.

    I didn’t argue with him for long because he eventually banned me from his blog. LOL. Big surprise, ‘eh? I’ve been banned from just about every feminist/anti-life blog on the net.

  7. John,

    Do you read National Review? Kevin D. Williamson wrote a piece in the Aug 19 edition (Et in Arcadia Ego) on this very topic, taking pretty much the same position.

    What I find interesting, and Williamson hints at it as well, is the connections between this disorder and that of homosexual attraction. With this, the subject believes what conflicts with the physical reality. That is, of course, that the subject believes himself to be one sex while the physical reality proves otherwise. This really is no different in the case of the homosexual, who denies the reality of his own sex and the natural attraction one of his sex should have based on the physical reality of his sex.

  8. I’m not going to argue whether homosexuals and transgendered share the same psychopathy, but I will say that, to me, homosexuals are one thing. They don’t pretend to be something they’re not. The gay men I know don’t pretend to be women; they openly admit that they are men that have a sexual attraction to other men. Disgusting? Maybe. But at least they aren’t pretending to be something they’re not. That, I think, is what bothers me the most about transgendered people. They literally sicken me.

    • Both homosexual and “transgender” are “icky” perversions.

      With any homosexual relationship (male or female), there will indeed be one partner playing the part of the man and one playing the part of the woman. That is why you see the effeminate men and masculine women in these perverse relationships.

      I believe that “transgendered” people are just wanting externally to look like what they play-act at.

  9. My point is that in both cases, physical reality is ignored in favor of whatever reality one wants to be true. In the case of the homosexual, the physical reality is that they are each equipped and designed for pairing with one of the opposite sex, while being attracted to and desirous of those of the same sex.

  10. John,

    I just thought that the timing of this post, as well as the specifics of it, match so much to what Williamson was saying that perhaps his article inspired yours. If you get a chance to check it out (only two pages), you’ll note the extreme similarity.

  11. John, you said:
    “Rather than seeking psychological treatment in order to feel more in-line with their physical body, they are encouraged to surgically mutilate their body and suppress their physical attributes with hormone therapy.”

    I believe they *are* encouraged to seek lots of psychological treatment before they can even receive permission to discuss and consider sex reassignment surgery or hormone therapy. Why would you think that they wouldn’t be?

    The judgment within the various comments regarding this very real problem is compassion-less, not Christian, and ugly. Very disappointing to have to read and think about too..

    • No, they aren’t encouraged to seek treatment for the purposes of correcting the disorder. They seek counselling to better cope and transition. That’s a big difference.

      But it is Christian, very Christian to speak the truth, not encourage psychosis.

  12. What is “psychosis” to you is not a mental disorder to them; they were made as they are by God Himself. God loves them as much as He loves you, believe it or not. He, I’m sure, will be far less judgmental than you and the various cronies who think like you. I have absolutely no doubt this is the case based upon what the bible shares with us about how Jesus Christ treated the poor, downtrodden, sinners, those who needed healing, etc.
    Sincerely, it’s time to rethink and meditate on these passages if you consider yourself at all Christian:

    Luke 13:23-24 and 28, “Then said one unto him, Lord, are there few that be saved? And he said unto them, Strive to enter in at the strait gate: for many, I say unto you, will seek to enter in, and shall not be able … There shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth, when ye shall see Abraham, and Isaac, and Jacob, and all the prophets, in the kingdom of God, and you yourselves thrust out.”

    Matthew 7:22-23 “Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.”

    Lacking compassion and real love for others is sinful. The second greatest commandment is to love thy neighbor; what i read on this page is hardly that.

    • Warrioress
      they were made as they are by God Himself

      NO they were not. God only made two people – Adam & Eve. And with them he set in motion the biological process of procreation. When sin entered the world it brought with it corruption of creation. These people are a result of procreation, and their ideology about human sexuality was learned. They can have it unlearned.

      I do not believe in such thing as a “mental disorder.” That is a construct of the psychobabble industry. These people can make choices and they choose poorly. I refuse to accept any construct about “mental health” – there is no such thing. The mind can not be ill because it is intangible. It can be deceived by teachings which led these people to believe they are “transgendered” – a fallacious term in and of itself.

      It has nothing to do with a lack of compassion. It is stupidity to deny human sexuality as designed. They have listened to lies their whole lives, and people like you encourage them in their lies. They will not have happy lives because they will not listen to the truth. I can only have compassion for those who want to hear the truth.

  13. Warrioress,

    Obviously there is no lack of compassion by one who recognizes the mental disorder that leads to a guy insisting he’s a girl. It is compassion that drives such to hope that proper mental help and guidance is sought and provided.

    Read your Bible more thoroughly and you’ll find that it teaches against cross-dressing (and what is “sex reassignment if not the ultimate cross-dressing), and also that Jesus never enabled a sinner in his sin. He always commanded, “Go and sin no more.” He did that because of His compassion. Should we do any less?

    I would be willing to wager that it is common for those suffering from psychosis to, at least at times, consider themselves normal. That means nothing for this discussion as does “What is “psychosis” to you is not a mental disorder to them”. Hitler was made as he was by God if we are to give validity to your position. So was John Wayne Gacy and a host of other very evil people. All sinners (which is all of us as well) are made as we are by God. He also made us capable of transcending our baser selves and of overcoming our temptations. Or we can whine and say “that’s the way I am” and hope He sees it the same way.

  14. There is a problem within someone seeking gender reassignment. At the very least, these people need healing. Instead, they receive little compassion and no understanding from the conservative half of society; this is actually the half calling themselves Christian, believe it or not!

    I highly doubt you and the other conservative taxpayers are willing to pay for the mental health care you claim these people should be getting, are you? I see absolutely no compassion on the right for anyone without health care, much less the trans-gendered. Who on earth are you trying to kid here?

  15. TheWarrioress,

    And yet you’re in no sense angry with the Left for actively participating in a psychosis that you admit requires “healing.”

    Yep. You make all kinds of sense, as usual. I hear Wal-Mart has intelligence on sale this week. Perhaps you should clip a coupon.

  16. Warrioress,

    I don’t know that I would say I am less concerned for the mental health of others than their physical. However, I don’t see how it is up to the tax payers to provide either for anyone. I’m not rolling in dough, yet I do not seek out financial assistance for any of my medical, dental or mental health needs (not that I have need for mental health care at this time). If you wish to donate your excess funds to such causes as therapy for those with “sexual identity” issues, feel free. Until you do, don’t try to conflate forced donation through taxation with compassion.

  17. Thankfully, those of you who choose to condemn and judge the transgendered are the MINORITY in this nation. You will lose the next presidential election to Hillary Clinton. The Christian right has already been exposed as the Pharisee-like religious right who does not practice what they preach, who could care less about the poor, disabled, elderly, or the challenged like single moms, etc.

    You are dinosaurs that will soon be voted out by the majority of Americans who know what you and your politics are all about: SELF, GREED, MAMMON, WAR, DESTRUCTION OF THE ENVIRONMENT, WILDLIFE, and to Hades with the rest of society whom you have no compassion for who doesn’t think like you.

    Thank the good Lord above that He defends the poor, the weak, and the struggling against you “good” folks.

    • How would you go about addressing sinners?

    • Warrioress,

      I see no condemnation here from anyone. We are called to judge behavior, which is what we are doing. Truth is neither condemnation nor judgemental.

      You make blanket charges about the “Christian right” with not facts to back up what you are saying, and paint all fundamental Christians with a broad brush.

      You also have no idea what the Pharisees were guilty of – at least your comments don’t demonstrate such knowledge.

      If Hillary wins the election it will only be because God is continuing to punish this nation for turning its collective back on Him.

      I don’t know any Christians who are about self, nor about greed, nor about mammon (perhaps you’d like to explain what mammon is), nor do we want war (it is the Muslim Obama who is pushing for war), nor do we seek the destruction of the environment (we are good stewards of the environment), nor do we seek the destruction of wildlife – again, we are the good stewards. The problem with the Left, when it comes to the environment and wildlife, is that they worship them and put them above humans.

      You have done nothing with your comment but spew a bunch of emotional and irrational claims. Typical of the Left.

  18. Sinners are redeemed by Jesus Christ. Those who don’t believe, who reject Jesus Christ will be dealt with by God Himself on Judgment Day. In the interim, Christians are admonished quite clearly on how to behave while they are in the world. Do the words “fruits of the spirit” ring a bell?
    Which fruits of the spirit are your commenters and you exhibiting in posting after posting commentary, John? Shall I remind all of you what the fruits of the spirit are?

    Really. Please. Look them up. Begin to exhibit them if you want to claim Christianity and begin to make your politics conform to your following of Jesus Christ. Otherwise it’s all just bologna that no one is buying, least of all me.

  19. It’s pointless to argue with you over politics, just as you think it’s pointless to argue with me. Every Christian reader on this blog will have to make up his or her own mind about the message of Jesus Christ, of God within His word. I think the bible is very clear that we can tell if one is Christian or not by his FRUIT. The fruit being exposed on this blog is quite rotten. It does not measure up to how the fruit if the spirit is described within the bible.

    “In everything, therefore, treat people the same way you want them to treat you, for this is the Law and the Prophets.” Matt 7:12

    “Beware of the false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly are ravenous wolves.You will know them by their fruits. Grapes are not gathered from thorn bushes nor figs from thistles, are they? So every good tree bears good fruit, but the bad tree bears bad fruit. A good tree cannot produce bad fruit, nor can a bad tree produce good fruit.Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. So then, you will know them by their fruits. Matt 7: 15-20

    But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law. Those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires. Since we live by the Spirit, let us keep in step with the Spirit. Galatians 5:22-25

    You, my brothers and sisters, were called to be free. But do not use your freedom to indulge the flesh; rather, serve one another humbly in love. For the entire law is fulfilled in keeping this one command: “Love your neighbor as yourself.” If you bite and devour each other, watch out or you will be destroyed by each other. Galations 5: 13-15

    • You spent an awful lot of time not responding to my comment. I see that a lot from liberals.

    • Liberals love to cite Scripture but don’t understand its application. Nothing cited has anything to do with the topic at hand. It is a plain and simple thing to understand: is there such thing as “transgenderism” outside of some psychobabble giving excuse for people’s behavior? NO. Should we support such nonsense by encouraging someone to practice it? NO. No matter how much mutilation one does to his or her body, it will not change the gender they were born as. DNA doesn’t change.

      Jesus would certainly not approve of “transgenderism” and would tell the man to “go and sin no more.” But that, I suppose, is lacking compassion.

  20. I responded to your comments, John.

    • You submitted comments but didnt address the conteny of the comment I offered beyond Pauls clear teaching that the lazy and unmotivated shouldnt be subsidized or enabled in their sloth. The rest went untouched.

  21. You’re not addressing mine either. Which fruits of the spirit do “we don’t want to pay taxes to help others” is that attitude under, John? Selfishness, concerned with self, not willing to share, greed..etc.?

    How about, “I don’t want to help some lousy trans-gendered guy get mental health care. It’s MY money, not his. Let him pay for it.” Which fruits of the spirit does that attitude exemplify?

    • Warrioress

      No, I dont want my tax money to subsidize ablebodied people who choose to live off the system.

      But I will repeat myself, I would be willing to have the government pay for Manning’s mental health care. But actual mental health care to help him come to the reality that he is a man and not a woman. Genuine mental health care. What you seem to think is mental health care is support in his feelings to want to be a woman. No I dont support that.

  22. I have to go make dinner for my daughter. You guys think about the fruits of the spirit that you show in your various comments, no matter the topic on this blog. I see no Christianity here.

    • If you remove your rose-colored glasses of sin-enablement you’d see plenty of Christianity here.

    • I have studied psychiatry and psychology and those fields are more imagination and agenda than science when it comes to therapy. Clinical psychology is a total fraud. So no, I would not want money going to support a false system which perpetrates fraudulent ideologies. The fact that they would consider approving someone for having their bodies mutilated after “counseling” proves they are fraudulent. And your whole case is based on their ideology. My solidly Christian case is that the man is a sinner making sinful choices and that he needs Christian counseling (which can be had for free), which can only be effective by converting him to Christianity first. So you don’t encourage his sin while trying to convert him to Christ. You tell him the Gospel and keep him away from psychobabblers.

      Now show me where what I said is “un-Christian.”

  23. Last comment for now…

    So now you’re a psychiatrist? A clinical psychologist? You know better than they do about how to treat these clients, eh? Again, these people are counseled at length before they are allowed to change their sex or take hormones.

  24. Glenn, It’s not Christian because you’re attempting to force your version of morality onto someone else. You’re acting all “dominionist.” You do not allow people the freedom to choose, like God does. You want to force them to become Christian by converting them and making them follow your point of view of right and wrong. It doesn’t work that way in a society where there is freedom of religion under the US Constitution. We also don’t govern America by the bible, because we cannot force the bible onto society. People have to freely choose to become Christian. All you’re doing is running them off. You sound like a right winger who wants to govern via punitive, legalistic RELIGION, instead of by the Constitution.

    • “Glenn, It’s not Christian because you’re attempting to force your version of morality onto someone else.”

      Pot, meet kettle.

      • John, you claim Christianity. So does Glenn. I’m merely asking that you Christian wanna-be politicians begin to act like the Christ you say you follow, in word and deed.Your politics don’t line up with the word of God.

        • You have no idea what I give in time, money and blood to charities. My view is that it’s not the government’s job. You take the unbiblical view that the government take from one earner and give it to someone else who it feels deserves it more than the earner.

          • You, nor I, nor Glenn, nor any of us Christians can address the entire needs of the poor in this country or the world. The government helps fulfill what the bible says we should do, so that these struggling people don’t fall between the cracks.

            • then you and your local church and neighbors should step up your game. Just because YOU fail doesnt all of a sudden make it biblical to forcibly take from one person to give to another.

            • You, nor I, nor Glenn, nor any of us Christians can address the entire needs of the poor in this country or the world. The government helps fulfill what the bible says we should do, so that these struggling people don’t fall between the cracks.

              The government has done nothing but make the situation worse. For all the money spent by the Government to solve “poverty,” the evidence is that the government programs have exacerbated it and increased exponentially. Yet you think that’s okay.

        • Warrioress,

          Demonstrate where my politics don’t line up with the word of God. The Word of God is what all my worldview is based on. You don’t seem to know the real Word – you seem to only know the Social Gospel.

    • Warrioress,

      Ah, I’m trying to force MY morality? Gee, and I thought it was God who was against sexual perversion. Pardon me for my mistake.

      Yes, God gives people freedom to choose to sin, but that doesn’t mean He accepts the sin. And you claim to understand the Christian faith?!?!?

      I’m not trying to convert anyone. What I said was that the only proper way to heal sin is to first become a Christian and then have Christian counseling. Empirical evidence shows that psychobabble therapy never heals any sin, and most of the time makes it worse. But this was all in the context of what proper counseling the guy would need if he chose to be counseled.

      Nor have I even intimated governing by the Bible. You LEFTISTS are pretty good at putting words into people’s mouths, twisting what is said to make you a victim of those horrible Christian fundies.

      I don’t care it the guy wants to mutilate himself, but I don’t want my tax dollars paying for it. And THAT isn’t anti-Christian; it’s called take responsibility for your own actions and don’t make me pay for it.

  25. er…the DEMOCRATIC government, that is..

  26. It is biblical to give out of what you have to a perfect stranger or even an immigrant who needs food, clothing, shelter, etc. You are not reading that bible of yours, John. There is a biblical mindset that you are to have, according to Jesus Christ in the NT. That same mindset was in the OT and I’ve quoted scripture to prove it.

  27. Democrats understand the teachings of Jesus in this regard. They get “share.” Republicans don’t appear to grasp the teachings of Jesus Christ when it comes to money and sharing that money with the poor, widows, the fatherless, beggars, etc.

    • the Democrats, as a party, Booed God at their national convention. They dont get ‘share’, the get, ‘confiscate and redistribute because you arent entitled’

      Frankly, I’m about spent here on this.

    • Democrats understand the teachings of Jesus in this regard. They get “share.” Republicans don’t appear to grasp the teachings of Jesus Christ when it comes to money and sharing that money with the poor, widows, the fatherless, beggars, etc.

      The Demokrats don’t understand diddly-squat about the Bible and true Christianity. Demokrats promote the murder of the unborn. Demokrats promote sexual immorality and same-sex fake marriage. Demokrats believe in stealing from hard-working people and giving it to those who sit on their duffs. Demokrats are racists and always have been.

      Same with a lot of Republicans, but not nearly to the degree of the Demokrats. You teach the false social gospel. That is heresy.

  28. If you and the others were giving it so freely, how do you explain the struggling, starving poor in this nation? And why are Republicans so against trying to make sure that everyone has enough of what he needs in order to survive? I’ll tell you why. SELFISHNESS AND GREED. You’re primarily concerned with that “me first” factor.

    • If you and the others were giving it so freely, how do you explain the struggling, starving poor in this nation? Demokrat economic policies. DUH.

      And why are Republicans so against trying to make sure that everyone has enough of what he needs in order to survive? They aren’t. They are only trying to make sure that the economic policies don’t get worse than they already are.

      I’ll tell you why. SELFISHNESS AND GREED. You’re primarily concerned with that “me first” factor. Typical LEFTIST non-argument. You claim it is selfishness without any evidence. You claim greed without any evidence. But it sure makes you feel good to make emotional claims without any evidence to support it.

  29. TheWarrioress,

    You’re one of the most ridiculous people I’ve ever come across. You favor emotionalism rather than objectively. Let me offer examples.

    Thankfully, those of you who choose to condemn and judge the transgendered are the MINORITY in this nation.

    Are we judging cancer patients when we say they need treatment? Secondly, we are not in the minority. Most of this country is not prepared to accept trans-gendered individuals. It wasn’t until very recently that public opinion shifted toward allowing homosexuals to marry – and that’s only true in certain parts of the country. So here we have an example of reality being twisted to suit your own ideology.

    You will lose the next presidential election to Hillary Clinton.

    Hillary Clinton hasn’t decided to run as yet, so WTF are you talking about? So here we have yet another example of TheWarrioress twisting reality to suit her own desire.

    The Christian right has already been exposed as the Pharisee-like religious right who does not practice what they preach, who could care less about the poor, disabled, elderly, or the challenged like single moms, etc.

    And yet studies have shown that conservatives give 3x more money to charity than liberals.

    You are dinosaurs that will soon be voted out by the majority of Americans who know what you and your politics are all about: SELF, GREED, MAMMON, WAR, DESTRUCTION OF THE ENVIRONMENT, WILDLIFE, and to Hades with the rest of society whom you have no compassion for who doesn’t think like you.

    Probably why polls show that Republicans will take back the Senate.

    Anyway, have you supported the murder of any babies lately?

  30. (eye-rolling) Get with the program, Terrance. Your politics are not Christian; they are a result of living in the flesh as opposed to the spirit. If you want to claim Christianity than be a Christian, not just in word only.

    This nation’s majority have woken up out of their daze. It’s why they reelected Barack Obama instead of Romney. They are not going to re-elect a dinosaur party that has proven again and again to be in favor of the rich, corporations over people, big business, and a party that doesn’t care if they hurt the environment, wildlife, and who don’t give a hoot about the common everyday working man. You’re not fooling anyone. America isn’t going to take that “trickle down” political ideology that doesn’t trickle down, anymore.

  31. TheWarrioress,

    The stupidity with which you so often operate is drooling out in record levels. You support the murder of unborn children but my politics aren’t Christian? Get real.

    Barack Obama was not reelected with any sort of special mandate, first and foremost. Second, Mitt Romney wasn’t the strongest opponent. He was an out of touch rich man that flip-flopped at every turn. Third, we know that voter fraud occurred to some degree in states like Ohio. You should do some homework.

    Lastly, leaning on the outcome of a given election to prove some obscure point about the “Pharisee-like Christian Right” is the stupidest f*cking thing so far this week. Republicans regained control of the House in 2010, so what did that prove? President George W. Bush was reelected in 2004. What does that prove? That liberals are anti-American pussies that would rather give-in to terrorists than fight for freedom? Is that a legitimate conclusion to draw from that election result? You tell me.

    Seriously, get an education.

  32. Not to brag, Terrance, but I’ve got an education, probably more than you do. (BA in Psychology at a private Catholic college here in town, and a Master’s in Community Counseling from UT in San Antonio, TX). At any rate, it’s another waste of time to try to get through, as per usual, but if even one of you Republican “Christians” begins to question the crapola you on the right spout, it will all be worth it.

    Btw, get your facts straight. I do not support abortion. Period.

      That explains a lot. A philosophy based on pure psychobabble! A field which it blatantly anti-Christians, founded by atheists. No wonder your non-arguments are all about emotionalism with no rational basis.

  33. TheWarrioress,

    …I’ve got an education, probably more than you do

    Then I’d get my money back, babe.

    And it figures you refuse to support any of the bullshit claims you’ve made.

    BTW, you flatout said on this blog that you support abortion in cases of rape. Period.

    • Hey Terrance,

      You certainly have points to make. More times than not your candor is pointed but never personal. It usually feels like you have taken a deep breath and thought it through. You “can” make your position known, albeit sometimes half amusing while you attempt to unravel what seems like dichotomy. But your language and personal attack culminating in the use of the word “babe”, begins to erode your credibility, and make you into one of the Foghorn Leghorns that so occasionally come blaring onto this blog like a drunken, angry bulldozer.

      I know I have zero credibility in this crowd as I am a marked Islamo-fascist harboring, fetus eating, America Hating, Obama worshipping, deficit feeding, anti-gun, Constitution burning socialist………..but “babe” just outright proves her denunciations of your socio-political agenda. You’re doing the left’s marketing when you debase yourself in that way.

      My 2 cents…….and yes I know you didn’t ask for it.

      • Nash

        You have more credibility with me than you’d think. I see the frustration in Terrance. Youre arguing with someone who values feelings and appearance more than pragmatic thoughtfulness.

  34. I actually like you, R. Nash. We get into our spats here and there, but I appreciate that you’re not single-minded. You’ll call out the left just as quickly as you call out the right. And you’re correct. That was a stupid thing for me to say. It debases the entire discussion.

Any Thoughts?
