Hersheypark Announces Commitment 

to Allowing Men Who Identify as Women 

to Use Women’s Restrooms

SEE: below in full unedited for informational, educational, and research purposes:

HERSHEY, Pa. — A Pennsylvania amusement park that is a popular attraction for families with children has announced that its internal policies allow visitors and employees to use the restroom that correlates with their “gender identity.”
Hersheypark officials released a statement on Friday outlining that its restroom accommodations have already been in place and will continue.
“We recognize that the more perspectives we have within our company, the more welcoming we are to all those who visit and seek employment here,” said Public Relations Manager Kathy Burrows. “In fact, our company has four core values, one of which is ‘respectful of others,’ which we define as treating all people with dignity, while respecting their differences and ideas.”
“For decades, Hersheypark has been dedicated to the safety and security of our guest and employees. It is foundational to our brand,” she continued. “Additionally, the Park has and will always strive to accommodate all guests and employees—including members of the LGBT community—to ensure those visiting or working at Hersheypark are comfortable and feel secure.”
Burrows then outlined that visitors and employees may therefore use whichever restroom correlates with their gender identity, or may use a family restroom if they prefer.
“To that end, the park will continue its practice of treating all guests and employees the same no matter race, ethnicity, sexual identity, etc.,” she said. “Guests and employees may continue to use the restrooms with which they gender-identify, or are welcome to use the many family restrooms available across the destination.”
Reaction to the announcement has been mixed, with some praising Hershey’s policy and others threatening not to frequent the famed amusement park.
“Hershey has stood behind the philosophy of diversity and inclusion for many years and you’re just learning about this now in light of recent events. I am a former employee in administration and this is nothing new. Has it negatively impacted your life in any way before? Don’t expect much to change now,” wrote commenter Toni Arnette under PennLive’s report of the matter.
“As a former Milton Hershey student, I can guarantee you you that Mr. Hershey would not approve of this being allowed to go on,” commenter Keith Stevens opined. “What gender God created you is what bathroom you should be using. This nation was built upon morals and biblical principles, which is exactly why this nation became the most powerful and wealthiest in the world ever, and our government has been slowly destroying it.”
Michael Geer, the president of the Pennsylvania Family Institute, likewise relayed that the national discussion on restroom use has generated much concern.
“Ultimately, what this Hershey policy and what Target’s policies and what these laws are saying is anybody can have access to any restroom they want based on what they think is in their head,” he told local television station WHTM. “Most people that we talk to, especially women, are very concerned about who is going to come in behind them.”
“To go this far, following pressure from outside groups, I think it will cause many families to wonder if Hersheypark is going to be on their destination list this year,” he said.
But Andy Hoover, legislative director of the American Civil Liberties Union of Pennsylvania, said that he thought the policy would actually be beneficial for business.
“Businesses recognize that to be competitive they have to be welcoming and open to everyone, and that’s exactly what Hersheypark is doing here,” he said.

Hersheypark says guests, staff may choose their restroom preference

40,000 Christians persecuted by Muslims…

A hint of what’s to come for Germany and Europe in general. Do German authorities really believe that these migrants will settle down and become loyal and productive citizens?
“40,000 Christians Persecuted By Muslims In Germany,” by Chris Tomlinson, Breitbart, May 10, 2016 (thanks to Filip):
A new study shows that potentially thousands of Christians have been attacked and harassed in German migrant homes by Muslim guards and fellow migrants.
Multiple human rights organizations are warning the German government of the conditions that Christians in asylum homes are being subjected to. One organization in particular has chronicled 231 specific cases of the harassment of Christians by Muslim migrants and Muslim security guards in asylum homes.
Open Doors is a humanitarian relief organization that specializes in helping Christians who are persecuted worldwide. Markus Rode, a member of the group, said that the study is only “the tip of the iceberg” and called for more action to address the problem Frankfurter Allgemeine reports.
The report from Open Doors chronicles varying types of abuse. Christians in the study came mostly from Iraq, Syria and Afghanistan and were recent converts to the faith.
Breitbart London has reported many times of the challenges of migrants who have chosen to forgo Islam and convert to Christianity. Many converts wished to do so in their homelands, but in places like Iran and Afghanistan the penalty for leaving the Islamic religion can be death and so they fled to Europe. Now in European asylum homes they are finding more and more that they are in as much danger from radical Muslims in Europe as they were in their home countries.
The most prevalent form of abuse was verbal insults with 96 people saying that had received abuse or threats. Eighty-six said they had been physically assaulted and 73 said they had been subjected to death threats against themselves and family members. Three quarters of the migrants also said they had been victims of multiple attacks.
The perpetrators of most of the attacks were fellow migrants who look down on converts and believe them to be apostates. Perhaps, more interestingly was the prevalence of Muslim security guards who participated in the attacks. Almost half of those surveyed said they had received abuse from security guards and in the German capital of Berlin the figure rose to two-thirds. Many of the security guards hired to keep order and protect migrants regularly come from migrant backgrounds themselves and even more often have no qualifications.
Volker Baumann of Action for Persecuted Christians (AVC) says the situation is far bigger than 231 migrants, claiming that up to 40,000 Christians are persecuted for their faith in Germany according to the group’s research….

It has been an interesting week. I don’ t know if any of you receive hate email, I received one this week that was more vicious than most others. If the writer believed in hell he was essentially commanding me to go there - and immediately. I probably shouldn’t have bothered to read it to the end, but it struck me that these who preach the message of tolerance are some of the most intolerant and vicious people on the face of planet earth. I think it was the same day that I received junk mail from my Alma Mater. I usually toss that stuff in the circular file, but I opened this one.
Video of the sermon:
It was a fund raising letter from the Alumni Association at Rutgers. The literature urged me to give to one of ten causes at the University, one of which caught my attention - LGBTQA. Of the last three the T is receiving a great deal of promotion from the likes of Bruce Jenner. He is still Bruce no matter what he claims, he is still biologically male, every cell of his body proclaims that reality in spite of what his disordered mind believes - he cannot change reality by thinking he would like it to be different than it actually is. No amount of bodily mutilation or injections of hormones will change reality.
But majority of Americans reject this delusion. One million former customers of Target have decided a retailer committed to this perversion isn’t worthy of their patronage, nor of the risk that store’s decision places upon children and women. Several State governments are standing against this evil, notably North Carolina - I pray they will not cave into the Fascist pressure from the White House and the so called Department of Justice.
Now in that fund raising letter I know what the Q stands for but I don't know or care what the A stands for. All that means to me is that there is a whole new category of perversion they are promoting. So here is my Alma Mater asking me to fund a program to further the cause of the sexual disordered on campus. To help them feel good about their sin, to teach them that it is good and even righteous to act in violation of God’s Law, to even pervert the very nature of what God has made them to be. That is what passes for an education at Rutgers and all other Ivy League Schools - teaching students to not only disobey God’s Law, but teaching them to over throw God’s Law. And not only to do this in their personal life, but even more disastrously to bring about a radical and fundamental transformation of America into a land rife with the abomination of sodomy, teaching people to reject who God has made them to be and at the core of their being to reject God altogether.
In short this along with many other universities in our land are nothing short of synagogues of Satan, blatantly teaching and promoting the Satanic agenda for the lives of their students and advancing the Satanic agenda of a radical transformation of our land into the kingdom of Satan. I would not recommend my Alma Mater to any student looking for a institution of higher education. In fact one should be very cautious about any so called institution of higher education including many that call themselves Christian.
Many of these have succumbed at this point to the sodomite agenda. I read of a very well known “Christian” university that hired a staff member in their drama department. Later it was revealed he was a sodomite. When asked about it by a Christian broadcaster the school official responded, when we hire someone, we are not concerned about their personal life, just their credentials and job performance. So they are not concerned that such a staff member will have a corrupting effect on the student body! They are certainly not alone in this type of approach to so called Christian higher education. In fact it we need to remind ourselves of what true education is as given to us in the Word of God. Proverbs 1:7 “The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge: but fools despise wisdom and instruction.”

Dear Ted –
I was in the middle of composing an article on you when you quit the race, “suspending my campaign” wasn't that how you put it? So I dropped both you and the article.
But just recently you really ticked me off! I got this freakish “Air Telegram” from you (in my regular mail) stridently begging me for money AFTER YOU'D ALREADY QUIT THE RACE! You said, and I Quote:
So I'm resurrecting my article, Ted. It was a “Dear Ted” Dear John. I was explaining how I went from being ALL IN for you to finally, and firmly, setting you completely and unconditionally aside in order to back Trump to victory.
And I'm including right here your own words on party unity back in 2012. Sad how hatred has turned your heart, Ted. (This recently released interview [6 minutes] also includes your own words, Ted, on Heidi's involvement with the CFR.)
Just so it's all very clear to you, Ted, I am standing up for my values. Donald Trump may be a frog complete with the warts but he's the prince that is singing my song. And he's singing it directly to me, Ted. Do you get it?
Back in the day, I was so proud of you! Proud of you getting elected Texas senator. Proud of you telling Mitch McConnell off, and so grandly! Proud of your stand against amnesty. Proud of your stand against the education boondoggle Common Core. Proud of your stand against bad trade deals. Proud of you being an outsider. Proud of what you'd made of yourself. Proud of your beautiful wife and daughters. Proud of your morals and your Christian life.
You were quite a guy and you were my candidate. I had such confidence in you. You and me, Ted. We were going to Reignite the Dream! We were going to take America back!
The first thing I heard, and verified, was your wife, Heidi, being involved as an executive with Goldman Sachs. Well, so maybe not all Goldman Sachs execs are “bad globalists”? I mean, she's so pretty and she looks so nice on your arm.
Next I heard of her five year stint with the Council on Foreign Relations. It was here, at the CFR, where she conjoined with 30 others to draft the dreadful North American Union (Building a North American Community), intended to join Canada, Mexico, and the United States in a blissful EU-like union. The five year work was released in 2005. Do you understand, Ted, that the NAU wrecks US sovereignty? You're a constitutional lawyer. Didn't you tell her?
Ted the Outsider? First, you are an elected senator from Texas. There are only ONE HUNDRED SENATORS in the entire country, Ted. It's a very exclusive “Insiders” group. I mean, 100 people out of 330,000,000?
Where did you and Heidi meet, Ted? Wasn't it in the 2000 “Elect Bush (43)” campaign? Weren't all Bush's advisers “Insiders”, Ted? Including you? And maybe even that new Harvard grad, Heidi?
You worked inside that Bush (43) administration. First you were a legal policy adviser in the campaign. Then you spent 6 months as an associate Deputy Attorney General at the DOJ. Then you served from July 2001 to January 2003 in the Federal Trade Commission as Director of the Office of Policy Planning.
Were you one of the select attorneys who advised Bush on how to amass more and more power to the Executive Branch? Bush did that, you know. [Here] and [Here]. He had a notorious and rapacious thirst for power and set just a fine table for Obama. Did you help him, Ted? Insiders did.
Your career was stalling in DC, Ted, so you moved back to Texas. Then-Attorney General Greg Abbott (now governor) appointed you Texas Solicitor General and you served Texas well from 2003 to 2008. Still claim you're an Outsider, Ted?
Not really noted anywhere in your campaign biography is what you were doing from 2008 to 2012 before you launched your successful bid to become the junior senator from Texas. In those years you were a private litigator and a partner in the Houston, Texas office of Philadelphia's law firm Morgan Lewis and Bockius. The clients were often very large corporations.
Litigating for this private company you defended very large punitive settlements (in the range of $50,000,000) that ultimately “settled” without ever going to court. But in Texas – and in your campaign to become senator - you defended the 2003 Texas business-friendly tort reform that capped damages at $750,000. That's only 1/66 of the settlements you vigorously defended at Morgan, Lewis and Bockius. How do you square that, Ted?
And the ABA Journal says this about that Texas $750,000 figure: “In cases with multiple defendants, the cap is set at $250,000 for non economic damages against all physicians, and $250,000 against one hospital or $500,000 against two or more hospitals for a total of $750,000. But plaintiffs lawyers say that is so unlikely as to be unrealistic, and the $250,000 cap is their reality.”
In 2011 in private practice, you made $1,570,000 (less in 2012 because you were campaigning). Quite a switch from your current senatorial paycheck. (Isn't that around $174,000 for a whole year, Ted? And Heidi's on unpaid leave?)
Outsider or Insider? Which is your wife, Heidi? In 1995 she received her Master of European Business degree from Solvay Business School in Brussels, Belgium, site of several notable EU organizations. Interesting it was a European business degree.
In 2000 she received her MBA from Harvard. So Heidi was Solvay and Harvard and you were Princeton and Harvard. That sure looks a lot like Ivy League top tier Insiders.
In 2000, Heidi Nelson worked as an economic policy director on the Bush campaign, where she met you, also a Bush campaign adviser. Following her marriage to you in May 2001, she went on to work for the Bush Administration. She began as a top deputy to Bush's U.S. Trade Representive Robert Zoellick, well known for his ties to the World Bank, GATT, and Goldman Sachs. Her focus was economic policy. She also worked as director of the Latin America desk at the Department of Treasury in 2002.
In 2003, Heidi Cruz reported directly to National Security Advisor Condoleezza Rice. Heidi became Director for the Western Hemisphere on the National Security Council where she served under Rice.
About a year after you opted for Austin Texas, Heidi left her very successful position in DC and took a job with Merrill Lynch in Houston, returning to her investment background, but still 160 miles away from you in Austin.
In 2005, Goldman Sachs hired her away from Merrill Lynch and in 2012, just after you won the senator race in Texas, Goldman Sachs named Heidi (along with some 260 others globally) as a managing director, beginning January 2013. She has since taken an unpaid leave from Goldman Sachs to promote your candidacy.
In no way can this beautiful, talented, and accomplished woman be called an Outsider, Ted.
Citizenship: Another big issue, Ted, no matter that you dismiss it, is your citizenship -- or lack thereof. You claim to be an “Originalist” as regards the Constitution, that it should be interpreted as meant when written back then (like the late Justice Scalia whom you praise).
Laurence Tribe, who taught you at Harvard Law School, has come out against your eligibility because at the time of the writing of the Constitution he states that “natural born” meant physically born in this country and required your father to be a citizen of this country. (Mom didn't count until the mid-1800s.)
And in 2014 you officially renounced your Canadian citizenship... As Canada did not have dual citizenship when you were born in 1970, and you emigrated to the US at age 4, three years before Canada had dual citizenship, what citizenship does that leave you with, Ted?
And by the way, how did a Cuban Canadian get to be a US Senator in Texas? I know Texans can pack a lot under a Stetson, Ted, but that pushes the envelope, even for you.
Amnesty – Here's another yes-and-no issue for you. In 2013 you backed legalization of the illegal immigrants already here. It wasn't until Trump came blazing onto the scene last June that the border wall and deportation became okay with you.
Common Core – Ted? It's rotten to the Core, creates nationalized standards that will drop us even farther than our current 28th place globally in education. YIKES! I just found another U.S. ranking from 2013 that puts us at an unbelievable 36th place globally! Please note on this link that our Education Czar says it's not that our kids aren't keeping up with the pace. It's that the kids in other countries are gaining educational ground faster.... Huh?
You say you oppose Common Core, Ted, and will dismantle it should you become president. However, Anita Hoge has caught you out. She has exposed S. 306 which you are backing. This would effectively put Common Core in every school in the country. Read here. And here. Does nothing shame you, Ted? These are our kids!
(I wonder if you just thought you were too clever, Ted, or was it that you thought that we were just too stupid to notice? You know, Trump people, under educated...)
And Trade Deals, Ted... You were graduating from Princeton, headed to Harvard when (R) Bush 41 heavily backed NAFTA (North American Free Trade Agreement), lost the '92 election, and then (D) Clinton completed the push for NAFTA. Very One World.
Of course it is unlikely that Ivy League schools featured the anti-NAFTA crowd: Ross Perot, Pat Buchanan, Pat Choate or the Giant Sucking Sound of our jobs leaving the country. Globalists laughed at and derided snottily all of us who saw clearly the disaster on the horizon. I guess you were too busy studying to notice. If nothing else, the U.S. Sovereignty issues should have interested an up and coming Constitutional law student. How's your memory on that, Ted?
But even with NAFTA as an historical black beacon, you favored the similar TPP (Trans Pacific Partnership) trade deal. And even worse – especially for a Constitutional scholar – was/is the TPA (Trade Promotion Authority) which “fast tracks” the TPP.
Surely you must realize that fast tracking takes away the Constitutionally mandated congressional oversight and authority on such deals? How could you be good with that, Ted? -- No congressional participation in the negotiations; no congressional in-depth review of the articles of agreement; no congressional alterations or modifications of the agreement?
And no senate vote on what is a trade treaty? Is that all right with Senator Ted Cruz?
I also saw you as moral and abidingly Christian, more illusions shattered amidst your convenient lies, your overreaching Christian Dominionist Theocratic Old Testament One World views, your willingness to do whatever it takes to further your own ends.
You know, Ted, back in the day I thought your goals were my goals, I thought your vision was my vision, that your dream was my dream. Even last June when I knew I'd vote Trump I held out for you as VP – maybe 8 years of Trump and 8 years of Cruz... Almost a dream ticket... Back then.
Now I'd be appalled if Trump chose you for VP. And I'm fairly sure I don't want a closeted religious zealot, a Christian One Worlder, sitting on the Supreme Court either, no matter how talented he is in the two-faced Debate Master arena.
You've turned too many corners, Ted. God of course can take you back. But I think too many of us out here caught on to your games, your flip flops – see a list of 11 of them in Kelleigh Nelson's article -- your lies conveniently cloaked in schmoozing Sincerity, charismatic Christianity, and patronizing Patriotism.
It is sad to say “Good-Bye”, Ted. But Good-Bye it is. God be with you. And may God be gentle with your wife and kids. And do remember, Ted, what you said about party unity... back in 2012.
God Bless America and Donald Trump.
