Any sensible Christian knows that to assist people’s gender delusions by using the wrong pronoun is a sin. We cannot play pretend in regard to the gender God made them or lie about whether God made them male or female. However, Rosaria Butterfield, who we are beginning to refer to as Lot’s Wife, intentionally provides a [false] theological defense for such an abhorrent practice through her work on “radical hospitality.”
Lot’s wife affectionately looked back at her home in Sodom, and God turned her into a pillar of salt. Rosaria affectionately looks back at her time in Sodom and favorably describes the “hospitality” and “love” of what she calls the “LGBTQ Community.” Explicitly modeling her idea of hospitality from the gay ‘community’ she experienced while a practicing lesbian, Butterfield seeks to instruct the church about how we are to redefine the family, make a safe-space for homosexuals, and lie about whether or not someone is a male or female. Butterfield encourages Christians to follow the model she developed while running an LGBT flop house during her lesbian days.
First, a brief summary. JD Greear, the ‘woke’ president of the SBC (who mocked John MacArthur and encouraged Beth Moore in her rebellion, who said voting for Democrats was “great,” who said Christians and Muslims worship the same God, who recently spent time on stage ‘shaking his booty’ to cheering women while the SBC burns down around him, who called greed ‘equally as sinful’ as homosexuality) recently said that Christians should use the ‘preferred gender pronouns’ of transsexuals. In doing so, he cited the fabulously-named Revoice promoter, Preston Sprinkle, and referred to it as “pronoun hospitality.”
Numerous churches have left the SBC over Greear’s capitulation on this pronoun issue.
Greear is not alone in his capitulation on preferred gender pronouns. Pulpit & Pen reported as early as February 2019 that Phoenix cyclist and popular internet apologist, James White, no longer categorically opposed using preferred gender pronouns (it should not surprise us that he’s been defending Butterfield’s subversive compromises so vehemently).
However, the one laying the theological groundwork for this capitulation on Biblical ethics is Rosaria Butterfield, whose work on ‘hospitality’ has been the driving force in this Judas-movement.
Below is audio uploaded to third party source (in case it is deleted) of Rosaria Butterfield being interviewed with the ultra-woke Cru organization (for more info on that, watch this video).
In the audio, Lot’s Wife explicitly says that using preferred gender pronouns is an act of hospitality. The time-stamp is about the 6.45 mark.
Please notice the ellipses in the transcript. Listen to the audio to hear every important word. And here is the audio if you want it directly from the primary source.
Rosaria: “The gay and lesbian community is a diverse community-absolutely! So we don’t all have one journey into the community, and we didn’t have one story; but a very special person, who was there every time because she was my dear, dear friend-was a transgendered woman-and I call her ‘Jay’ in the book…”
Bob: “…And you use the female pronoun when you refer to Jay. Why do you do that?”
Rosaria: “I do. I do. in fact, I was asked, recently, at a biblical counseling conference why I do that…I would do that today, as a Christian by the way…because you have to meet and respect people where they are. And hospitality is- -I believe it is God’s ordained path for evangelism. In First Corinthians-when God tells us that no temptation will befall you except for that which he will provide a way of escape-I want all of our Christian listeners to know that, from the bottom of my heart, I believe that your home and your church is a way of escape for somebody… -somebody that God has called. But if your door is close or if you can’t get over yourself- and maybe I can talk a little bit about this- You know that we pray, “Lord may there be more of you and less of me.” We as Christians pray for a relinquished life. If that is so, then our churches and our homes are the way of escape-but that has not historically been the truth; right?”
Dennis: “Right. We’ve had a lot of judgmental walls and bars on our homes and our doors at that point.”
Rosaria: “Right; right.”
It would be best, if someone has “dug-in” on Rosaria to realize that she is a dangerous teacher who should remain quiet in the churches. Her work has served the LGBTQ agenda. There is no rational dispute of it.
“Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing but inwardly are ravenous wolves” (Matthew 7:15)


Stripper exposed breasts, twerked in attendee’s faces.

Despite complaining about a lack of money, King County leaders used taxpayer dollars to fund the performance of a transgender stripper at a recent conference on homelessness.
Yes, really.
Beyonce Black St James was hired to twerk in attendees faces and expose his/her breasts as the audience cheered and handed over dollar bills. The stripper also gave lap dances and kissed attendees.
The theme of the conference was “decolonizing our collective work,” yet another illustration of how obscure, radical, identity politics social engineering is infecting everything.
“For years, Seattle has claimed that it “needs more resources” to solve homelessness, but as the video shows, they find it totally appropriate to pay for a transgender stripper to grind on members of the region’s homelessness nonprofits and taxpayer-funded organizations,” commented Christopher F. Rufo, who posted a video of the performance.
The event was organized by All Home, the coordinating agency for homelessness in King County, which is headed up by Kira Zylstra who earns roughly $123,000 a year. Zylstra has been put on paid leave pending an investigation.
Seattle has huge problems with homelessness which will not be solved by transgender stripper performances.
As we highlighted earlier this year, a leftist council member recently tried to stop feces being cleaned off the streets of Seattle with a power washer, arguing that it was racist.
According to Larry Gossett, power washing “brought back images of the use of hoses against civil-rights activists.”
Seattle parks are also becoming no-go areas for the general public because of spiraling problems with aggressive homeless people and trash.


 She won her position because of her gender, race and religion, and now her constituents are paying the price.

Associated Press reported Thursday that Pennsylvania State Representative Movita Johnson-Harrell, a hijab-wearing Muslim and a Democrat, has been charged with “enriching herself by stealing money from a nonprofit organization she founded to serve the mentally ill and poor who were fighting addiction.” And so once again we get a lesson in the dangers of identity politics.
AP added that “Pennsylvania Attorney General Josh Shapiro’s office accused Rep. Movita Johnson-Harrell of perjury, tampering with public records, theft and other charges….Court papers said the theft went on for years as Johnson-Harrell converted the charity’s funds into investment properties, vacations and luxury clothing. Shapiro said Johnson-Harrell personally spent more than $500,000 from Motivations Education & Consultation Associates, diverting Medicaid and Social Security disability funds.”
Johnson-Harrell was “the first female Muslim member of the House” – she has now resigned -- and “came to office with the intensely personal story of having endured the shooting deaths of her father, brother, cousin and 18-year-old son.”
Movita Johnson-Harrell is not a jihadi. And corrupt officials of all creeds can be found more easily than anything else in this world. The reason why this story is worthy of posting here at the Geller Report is because it is another indication of the dangers of identity politics. Movita Johnson-Harrell became a state representative because she is a Muslim – indeed, because she would be the first female Muslim member of the Pennsylvania House, and a hijab-wearing one at that. She was a symbol of the Democratic Party’s commitment to “diversity,” as well as, with her tragic personal story, a sign of its determination to take guns away from law-abiding Americans.
Her value, in others words, was as a symbol, not as a legislator. It is likely that when Democratic Party top dogs were deciding on who should run for the State House from her district, no one knew or cared whether Movita Johnson-Harrell would be an honest or competent state representative. Her value was solely in the fact that she was a racial and religious minority, a Sharia-adherent Muslim in a party that reveres such people.
What’s more, as a representative Johnson-Harrell played the identity politics game to the hilt. Last March, according to journalist Todd Starnes, another Pennsylvania State Representative, Stephanie Borowicz, prayed this to open a legislative session: “Jesus, you are our only hope. At the name of Jesus, every knee will bow and every tongue will confess Jesus, that you are Lord.”
Johnson-Harrell was livid. The prayer, she declared, was “highly offensive to me, my guests, and other members of the House.” In a statement, she added that the prayer “blatantly represented the Islamophobia that exists among some leaders — leaders that are supposed to represent the people. I came to the Capitol to help build bipartisanship and collaborations regardless of race or religion to enhance the quality of life for everyone in the Commonwealth.”
There may be a real point in there. Rep. Borowicz’s prayer may have been inappropriate in a setting in which not everyone present was Christian. We have, however, seen many imams say prayers at various legislative bodies that are not non-sectarian, but manifestly Islamic and even condemning of Jews and Christians, while the non-Muslim lawmakers stand with oblivious heads bowed.
But “Islamophobic”? This illustrates how absurd charges of “Islamophobia” are, and how any manifestation of faith other than Islam is sometimes seen as offensive to Muslims.
In all this, the story of Movita Johnson-Harrell is similar to that of Mohamed Noor, the Minneapolis police officer who shot dead a pajama-clad woman, Justine Damond, who had called police about a disturbance in her neighborhood. Mohamed Noor was only on the Minneapolis police force because he was a Muslim, despite numerous indications of his incompetence.
A woman is dead in that case. In this one, Medicaid and Social Security disability funds were diverted into MovitaJohnson-Harrell’s coffers. That harmed the very people Movita Johnson-Harrell was supposed to be such a great representative for, because shared their background. Why don’t we go back to supporting candidates based on their merits, not on their religion, ethnicity, race, or gender? Oh, that would be “racist”?
Ultimately, all this identity politics cuts against the very idea of representative government. If people can only be adequately governed by representatives who look like them, who have the same racial, religious, and ethnic background, America will atomize into mutually hostile camps organized along those lines. That is already happening today, and maybe it was the idea all along. In any case, no lesson will be learned here, any more than any lesson was learned in the case of Mohamed Noor. The sad story of Movita Johnson-Harrell is one that we are almost certainly going to see playing out in America again and again and again.

Who would think this could possibly happen in any Western country?
“Islamic students ‘threatened to behead non-Muslim staff in name of ISIS‘ at Sydney high school where the principal was stood down for ‘banning women teachers from Year 12 graduation'”
It happened at a majority-Muslim public school, Punchbowl Boys High School in Sydney, Australia. This is the school where, in 2018, a Muslim teacher who had been fired over charges of “radicalizing” students returned to the classroom.
Western countries will continue to metamorphose into mirror images of barbaric states with increased Muslim migration. Accusations of “Islamophobia” will certainly be levied for stating this obvious truth, as Westerners continue to kowtow to Islamic supremacists. But take, for example, an incident that happened Friday in Pakistan, the country best noted for its Islamic blasphemy laws and for its Prime Minister’s efforts to crack down on “Islamophobia”:
Lawyers in Pakistan announced a nationwide strike on Friday to protest the arrest of colleagues who went on a deadly rampage at the Punjab Institution of Cardiology (PIC) in Lahore on Wednesday, killing several patients in the process.
Yes, lawyers! Lawyers by Western standards don’t rampage through hospitals murdering patients like barbarians, and then accuse doctors of provoking them. Now a once-respectable school in Sydney is facing the horror of Muslim boys threatening to behead the staff.
“Muslim boys ‘threatened to behead staff‘ at Sydney school,” Livingston Ledger, December 13, 2019:
Islamic students ‘threatened to behead non-Muslim staff in name of ISIS‘ at Sydney high school where principal was stood down for ‘banning women teachers from Year 12 graduation‘
Islamic students at a public school threatened to behead non-Muslim staff and declared themselves sympathisers, staff alleged.
Police feared students at Punchbowl Boys High School were being radicalised after principal Chris Griffiths did not cooperate with a de-radicalisation program.
Mr Griffiths and deputy principal Joumana Dennaoiu were removed from their roles at the Muslim-majority school after an investigation by the Education Department.
The pair were stood down for allegedly stopping female teachers from participating in official events such as the Year 12 graduation ceremony, along with other issues.
Several employees claimed non-Muslim staff were verbally attacked, including with threats of beheading, by Muslim students declaring themselves ISIS sympathisers, according to .
Not only were these incidents not reported to police, the ‘actively hostile‘ relations were so bad police liaison officers couldn‘t access the government school for the past 2.5 years.
Officers said Mr Griffiths converted to Islam in 2014 and claimed relations between police and the school broke down after he was appointed two years ago.
‘Students were being told that if “the pigs” stop you….

The moral bankruptcy of the Islamic Republic is displayed every day in every way. The executions of Baha’is, the hanging of homosexuals, the imprisonment and torture of dissidents, the arrest of women who dare to remove their hijabs, the outsourcing of terrorist attacks  to Hezbollah, the hysterical threats to destroy Israel, are all of a piece, along with the remarks of Ayatollah Lotfollah Dezhkham, Khamenei’s representative in Fars Province, who said on January 25, 2019 in Shiraz that “We Will Shout ‘Death to America’ until We Turn the White House into a Shiite Islamic Center.”
But along with the figurative sinking of Iran’s ship of state, the S.S. Naufragium (also known as the S. S. Narrenschiff, there is the literal sinking of the country, which threatens to destroy many structures, including airports, apartment buildings, factories, roads, and highways. Huge sinkholes have opened up throughout Tehran, a city of some 13 million people; one of them is 60 meters deep. Some are fifty feet across.
Here is the report, little noted when it appeared nearly a year ago, on this colossal threat to Iran’s infrastructure, for which there seems to be at this point no remedy and about which nothing has been done since this report appeared:
Stressed by a 30-year drought and hollowed by excessive water pumping, the parched landscape around Iran’s capital has begun to sink dramatically. Seen by satellite and on foot around the city, officials warn that what they call land subsidence poses a grave danger to a country where protests over water scarcity have already seen violence.
Land subsidence is a destructive phenomenon,” said Siavash Arabi, a measurement expert at Iran’s cartography department. “Its impact may not be immediately felt like an earthquake, but as you can see, it can gradually cause destructive changes over time.”
He said he can identify “destruction of farmland, the cracks of the earth’s surface, damage to civilian areas in cities, wastewater lines, cracks in roads and damages to water and natural gas pipes.”
Several things have contributed to this  catastrophe. Most important is the nationwide drought, which has gone on for 30 years. In 2018, only 6.7 inches of rain fell in Iran. By comparison, New York City gets 49.9 inches of rain every year. Because of the absence of rainwater, Iranians have been digging more wells, and Iran’s aquifers steadily decline.
Tehran, which sits 1,200 meters (3,900 feet) above sea level against the Alborz Mountains on a plateau, has rapidly grown over the last 100 years to a sprawling city of 13 million people in its metropolitan area.
The huge growth in Iran’s population, and especially in Tehran, naturally requires ever greater water use, at a time when the once-in-a-century drought has supplied only tiny amounts of rainwater. More salty water is pumped up from ground aquifers; this is not good for agricultural use.
All those people have put incredible pressure on water resources on a semi-arid plateau in a country that saw only 171 millimeters (6.7 inches) of rain last year. Over-reliance on ground aquifers has seen increasingly salty water pumped from below ground.
“Surface soil contains water and air. When you pump water from under the ground surface, you cause some empty space to be formed in the soil,” Mr Arabi told Associated Press. “Gradually, the pressure from above causes the soil particles to stick together and this leads to sinking of the ground and formation of cracks.”
Rain and snow to recharge the underground aquifers have been in short supply. Over the past decade, Iran has seen the most prolonged and severe drought in more than 30 years, according to the United Nations’ Food and Agriculture Organisation. An estimated 97 per cent of the country has faced some level of drought, Iran’s Meteorological Organization says.
That has caused the sinkholes and fissures now seen around Tehran.
Iranian authorities say they have measured up to 22 centimetres (8.6 inches) of annual subsidence near the capital, while the normal range would be only as high as 3 centimeters (1.1 inches) per year.
Even higher numbers have been measured in other parts of the country. Some sinkholes formed in western Iran are as deep as 60 metres (196 feet)….
By insisting on becoming self-sufficient in food production, which was not an economic but a political decision, based on the Islamic Republic’s worry about the possible effect of  sanctions on its imports, it has used up more of its available water than it had to. Iranian farmers use water inefficiently, unlike, say, the Israelis, who have learned to constantly adjust their methods to make maximum use of the water they do have, and who first came up with advances in drip irrigation that deliver to each plant the exact amount of water that plant needs. Israel has publicly offered to help Iran with management of its water; Iran has rejected the offer. Were Iran willing to forego growing all the food it needs, and return to buying some from abroad — as rice from China, and wheat from Russia, two countries that ignore the American sanctions on Iran — it could save a great deal of water in this time of historic drought. But it appears determined to continue with its ill-thought-out policy of autarky.
Already, the drought and water crisis has fed into the sporadic unrest Iran has faced over the last year. In July, protests around Khorramshahr, some 650 kilometres (400 miles) southwest of Tehran, saw violence as residents of the predominantly Arab city near the border with Iraq complained of salty, muddy water coming out of their taps amid the years-long drought.
The unrest there only compounds the wider unease felt across Iran as it faces an economic crisis sparked by President Donald Trump’s decision to withdraw America from Tehran’s nuclear deal with world powers.
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who has long opposed Iran’s theocratic government, even released an online video in June offering his country’s water technology in a jab at Iran’s leaders.
“The Iranian regime shouts: ‘Death to Israel,’” Mr Netanyahu said. “In response, Israel shouts: ‘Life to the Iranian people.’”
Israel has out of necessity had to become  a world leader in water management. This includes its advances in drip irrigation, which are well known worldwide; it has shared with others, both in the advanced West and in sub-Saharan Africa, its novel techniques of delivering the exact amount of water each individual plant needs.
Israel is also a pioneer in desalination, operating Sorek — the world’s largest seawater desalinization plant — some 10 miles south of Tel Aviv. While desalinization can be an energy intensive and expensive enterprise, the advanced technologies employed at Sorek allow it to produce a thousand liters of drinking water — about what one person in Israel uses in a single week — for 58 U.S. cents.
Israel aims to produce 200 billion gallons of potable water annually through five major desalination plants by 2020, and has shared its expertise in the field to help address water shortages globally, from Egypt to California.
Finally, Israel is the world leader in purifying its waste-water and using it in irrigation, making it the undisputed world leader in this field.  90% of Israel’s waste-water is reused; its nearest rival in this area, Spain, recycles only 20% of its waste-water.
Offered help in water management by Prime Minister Netanyahu, Iranian officials shrugged it off. But solutions to the water crisis will be difficult to find without improvements in irrigation, in desalinization, and in the re-use of waste-water. These are three fields in which Israel is recognized as a world leader. The Israelis are eager to share their expertise, even with their geopolitical enemy. It’s the mullahs who are preventing this….
Sanctions were the foreseeable result of a deliberate decision made by the Iranian regime to prioritize the acquisition of nuclear weapons over the well-being of its people. Sanctions prevent Iran from buying equipment that might be useful in both desalination plants and in waste-water treatment facilities. Iran’s own obstinacy in refusing Israel’s offer of help is further evidence of how it puts its anti-Zionist policy ahead of ameliorating the water crisis for 81 million Iranians.
Iranian authorities have begun to crack down on illegal water wells, closing 100,000 of them. But there are still 30,000 in use, and as fast as the government closes them down, new ones are dug. The Iranians are also exploring using desalinization plants along the Persian Gulf, but they continue to reject having Israel share its technical know-how in this area. Farming practices also need to change including greater use of drip irrigation; Iranian farmers, like many farmers in the Third World, have been reluctant to try new methods.
“We need to shift our development model so that it relies less on water and soil,” Mr Darvish, the activist, said. “If we don’t act quickly to stop the subsidence, it can spread to other areas.”
Thirty years of drought, the worst in Iran’s modern history, has caused Iranians to rely ever more on water from their aquifers. As it is pumped out, the loss of this underground water has created spaces in the soil where the water once was. This has led, in turn, to widespread subsidence of the soil. It is being pushed down, packed more tightly, as the water — and air with it — are sucked out of these aquifers. As the earth subsides, cracks are formed, and sinkholes, some as large as a bus, and 40-100feet deep (one sinkhole is nearly 200 feet deep) have been created. And even where there are no sinkholes, the subsidence of the earth by a few inches can have devastating consequences for buildings.
The sinking can be seen in Tehran’s southern Yaftabad neighbourhood, which sits close to farmland and water wells on the edge of the city. Cracks run down walls and below windows, and water pipes have ruptured. Residents fear poorly built buildings may collapse.
The sinking also threatens vital infrastructure, like Tehran’s Imam Khomeini International Airport. German scientists estimate that land under the airport is sinking by 5 centimetres (1.9 inches) a year.
Tehran’s oil refinery, a key highway, automobile manufacturing plants and railroads also all sit on sinking ground, said Ali Beitollahi, a Ministry of Roads and Transportation official. Some 2 million people live in the area, he said.
Masoud Shafiee, head of Iran’s cartography department, also acknowledged the danger.
“Rates (for subsidence) are very high and in many instances it’s happening in densely populated areas,” Mr Sherif told AP. “It’s happening near sensitive infrastructures like airports, which we consider a top priority.”
The mullahs have no idea what to do. They haven’t yet recognized the need to buy more of the country’s food from abroad — autarky be damned — so as to decrease the use of water for agriculture. They will never accept Israeli help in water management: drip irrigation, desalinization, and purification of waste-water. The more water that must be taken from aquifers in this time of historic drought, the more the earth subsides. And the more the earth subsides, the more cracks in buildings and pipes, with the possibility of collapse, and the more sinkholes into which cars and houses can disappear.
Right now in Tehran, an oil refinery, railroads, automobile manufacturing plants, a major highway, and above all the Ayatollah Khomeini airport, all lie on land that is sinking by nearly two inches a year. And there is nothing, at this point, that can be done to reverse the damage. Had Iran been run by technocrats rather than theocrats for the last 40 years, they might have built desalinization facilities on the Persian Gulf, on the model of Israel’s spectacularly successful plants, might have learned of Israel’s methods of drip irrigation, and promoted them among their own farmers, and might, finally, have been taught by the Israelis just how to purify waste-water most economically for use in agriculture. But instead of choosing to do what it would take to stave off or mitigate the current disaster, including accepting the expertise Israel has offered, the Islamic Republic chose instead to embrace its Qur’an-based hatred of the Jews. Their loss, their pain.
The result is there for all — with satellite imagery — to see. Many places in Iran are sinking, inch by inch, each year, as the aquifers are drained, and with that subsidence of the land, also sinking are its roads, its apartment buildings, its manufacturing plants, even its main airport. Expect to read more, in the next few years, of highways collapsing, of buildings crumbling, of runways gutted by sinkholes, in Iran.
Having been sinking, figuratively, during 40 hideous years of Islamic misrule, Iran has now begun to sink, literally, in the last few years. One more failure of the Islamic Republic. There have been so many.

Among the products available for purchase in the “shop” section of the official Donald Trump website, emblazoned with messages like “Cops for Trump,” “Women for Trump,” “Latinos for Trump,” and “Veterans for Trump,” is rainbow homosexual pride apparel bearing the slogan “Make America Great Again.”
“Show your support for the LGBT community and the 45th president with this exclusive Make America Great Again Pride t-shirt,” one of the descriptions reads.
In addition to the shirt, supporters can also purchase a red “Make America Great Again Pride hat.”
As previously reported, during the 2016 presidential election, the Trump campaign likewise sold homosexual-themed apparel. The white tee was swiped with rainbow colors and read “LGBT for Trump.”
At the time, Chris Barron of LGBT for Trump and GOProud praised the campaign’s offering of homosexual apparel, tweeting, “@realDonaldTrump makes history again. First GOP Presidential candidate to do LGBT outreach merchandise! LOVE IT!”
Garison Carrell of the Log Cabin Republicans did the same, posting, “The absolute most pro-gay candidate. Thank you @realDonaldTrump #GaysforTrump #LGBT #Election2016”
But some, such as the Constitution Party of Tennessee, conveyed its dismay over the matter.
“Donald J. Trump becomes the first Republican presidential candidate to offer official pro-LGBTQ merchandise with the unveiling of ‘LGBTQ for Trump’ apparel. If Trump will do this, what won’t he do?” it opined.
A number of times during his initial campaign and throughout his presidency, Trump has given a nod to those who identify as homosexual.
“So you tell me, who’s better for the gay community, and who’s better for women than Donald Trump? Believe me!” he said.
During his acceptance speech the following month, Trump told those gathered that he would work to protect homosexuals if elected.
“As president, I will do everything in my power to protect LGBTQ citizens from the violence and oppression of a hateful foreign ideology,” he declared, being met with applause.
Similarly, in May of this year, President Trump posted two tweets in recognition of “Pride Month,” asking Americans to “stand in solidarity” with homosexuals who live in countries where such sexual practices are illegal, as well as for nations to join his administration’s campaign to decriminalize homosexuality worldwide.
“As we celebrate LGBT Pride Month and recognize the outstanding contributions LGBT people have made to our great nation, let us also stand in solidarity with the many LGBT people who live in dozens of countries worldwide that punish, imprison, or even execute individuals on the basis of their sexual orientation,” he wrote.
“My administration has launched a global campaign to decriminalize homosexuality and invite all nations to join us in this effort!” Trump urged.
The Center for Family and Human Rights (C-Fam) further notes that last year, “State Department representatives pressured governments to accept ‘sexual orientation and gender identity’ in international law. Additionally, the U.S. Ambassador to the UN Economic and Social Council made an impassioned plea during the General Assembly for homosexual issues.”
The United States is also listed as a member nation of the UN LGBTI Core Group alongside Canada, the U.K., Australia, Germany, France and Israel, among others.
In May, Trump told Fox News host Steve Hilton that he thinks it’s “absolutely fine” that Democratic presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg is campaigning with his “husband.”
“Yeah, I think it’s great,” Trump answered unflinchingly when asked if he agreed that it was a sign of “great progress” in the nation. “I think that’s something that perhaps some people will have a problem with, [but] I have no problem with it whatsoever. I think it’s good.”

As previously reported, The Bible teaches in Genesis 19 that the city of Sodom was full of various wickedness, including homosexuality. It states that as the men of Sodom saw angels enter into Lot’s home, “both old and young” surrounded the house and called out, “Where are the men which came in to thee this night? Bring them out unto us, that we may know them.”
“I pray you, brethren, do not so wickedly,” Lot replied.
The angels then “smote the men that were at the door of the house with blindness” so that they could not enter, and advised Lot, “[W]e will destroy this place, because the cry of them is waxen great before the face of the Lord, and the Lord hath sent us to destroy it.”
In the New Testament, Jude, the earthly brother of Jesus, pointed to the sorrowful fate of Sodom, writing, “Sodom and Gomorrah, and the cities about them in like manner, giving themselves over to fornication, and going after strange flesh, are set forth for an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire.”
He later encouraged Christians in light of the rampant sin of the last days to “have compassion [on souls], making a difference, and others save with fear.”
Proverbs 14:34 says, “Righteousness exalteth a nation, but sin is a reproach to any people.”
Proverbs 16:12 also states, “It is an abomination to kings to commit wickedness, for the throne is established by righteousness.”
In his commentary on the latter, English Baptist pastor John Gill explained, “It should be an abomination to kings to commit wickedness themselves, and those that do it should be abhorred by them, or they should show their resentment at it by removing them from their presence, or by punishing them.”
“And though there have been such kings as David, Psalm 101:4; yet there are but few such; this is not true of kings in common; and therefore rather expresses what they should be than what they are; but is perfectly applicable to Christ, who loves righteousness and hates iniquity, Psalm 45:7.”
“This is the support, strength, and security of every kingdom, and of the thrones of kings; and it is with judgment and righteousness that the throne of Christ is established; yea, justice and judgment are the habitation of his throne, Isaiah 9:7.”


Virginia Governor Ralph Northam nra-ila image

Fairfax, VA – -( Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam (D) must think that Old Dominion gun owners are stupid. After months of Northam and his Michael Bloomberg-backed General Assembly allies advocating for the enactment of gun confiscation legislation, the governor has told the Virginia Mercury that he will support a gun ban bill that would grandfather currently possessed firearms but require owners to register the newly-prohibited firearms with the government. As astute gun owners know, gun registration facilitates gun confiscation. Northam wants law-abiding gun owners to register their guns with the same people who have already stated that they want to confiscate them.
The evidence is clear: Virginia politicians want to confiscate your firearms
On June 4, an embattled Gov. Northam announced a special session of the General Assembly in order to enact a raft of gun control legislation. During his remarks, the governor expressly said that “I will propose many of the same ideas that we have proposed before… A ban on assault weapons…”
On July 8, Del. Mark H. Levine (D-45) delivered for Northam and pre-filed gun ban bill HB 4021. The legislation garnered 23 cosponsors. That same day Sen. Adam P Ebbin (D-30) pre-filed the identical SB 4024, which attracted 16 co-sponsors.
The legislation would have banned the importation, manufacture, sale, transfer, and possession of what it termed “assault firearms.” The term was defined to include any semi-automatic centerfire rifle with a fixed magazine capacity in excess of 10 rounds or any semi-automatic centerfire rifle that has the ability to accept a detachable magazine and has one of several enumerated features. These features included, a folding or telescoping stock, a pistol grip, a thumbhole stock, a second handgrip, a bayonet mount, a silencer, a flash suppressor, a muzzle brake, a muzzle compensator, or a threaded barrel. The legislation also would have banned commonly-owned semi-automatic shotguns and centerfire pistols with any one of several prohibiting features.
As Levine and Ebbin’s legislation prohibited possession of these firearms, the bills, which were drafted at Northam’s request, were firearms confiscation.
On November 18, Sen. Richard L. Saslaw (D-35) pre-filed SB 16 for the 2020 session. This legislation would ban the same types of commonly-owned semi-automatic firearms as HB 4021 and SB 4024. Again, as the bill would ban the possession of these firearms, it is gun confiscation.
Northam is misleading the public
Discussing the governor’s proposed ban, Northam Spokeswoman Alena Tarmosky told the Mercury, “In this case, the governor’s assault weapons ban will include a grandfather clause for individuals who already own assault weapons, with the requirement they register their weapons before the end of a designated grace period.”
The website also reported,
The Northam-backed plan mirrors the federal assault weapon ban passed in 1994, which included a grandfather clause for weapons that were legally owned when the legislation was enacted. The federal ban expired in 2004.
It’s not clear whether the Mercury has been misled by Northam’s staff or whether the paper is misinformed on the matter of gun law in general, but this paragraph is directly contradicted by Tarmosky’s statement.
Under the 1994 Clinton assault weapons ban, gun owners could continue to possess and transfer prohibited firearms that were lawfully possessed prior to the ban. In direct contrast to the purported Northam proposal, the federal ban had no firearm registration requirement.
The details of Northam’s gun ban have yet to be released. However, the Clinton ban’s prohibiting criteria were far different than what has been proposed by Northam’s General Assembly allies. Whereas the proposed Virginia legislation would ban commonly-owned semi-automatic firearms with only one offending feature, the “assault weapon” definition under the 1994 federal ban required that a firearm have two prohibiting features. Further, the enumerated prohibited features under the Virginia legislation are far broader and include such innocuous characteristics as thumbhole stocks.
The Mercury item also noted that Northam told reporters, “I’m a supporter of the Second Amendment…” and “we’re not going to propose or pass any unconstitutional laws.” In reality, the gun bans proposed by Northam and his allies are unconstitutional under the Second Amendment as interpreted by the U.S. Supreme Court in District of Columbia v. Heller and McDonald v. Chicago.
Heller decision author Justice Antonin Scalia made this clear when he signed onto a dissent from denial of certiorari in the case of Friedman v. Highland Park, which concerned a local ban on commonly-owned semi-automatic firearms. The dissent, written by Justice Clarence Thomas explained,
Roughly five million Americans own AR-style semiautomatic rifles. The overwhelming majority of citizens who own and use such rifles do so for lawful purposes, including self-defense and target shooting. Under our precedents, that is all that is needed for citizens to have a right under the Second Amendment to keep such weapons.
Gun registration facilitates confiscation
For undeniable evidence that gun registration facilitates gun confiscation, consider the experience of Virginia gun control financier Michael Bloomberg’s hometown of New York City.
In 1967 New York City passed an ordinance requiring gun owners to register their rifles and shotguns. In 1991 the New York City Council and Mayor David N. Dinkins enacted a bill to prohibit the possession of commonly-owned semi-automatic rifles and shotguns.
The year after the ban was enacted, a man`s home in Staten Island was raided by the police after he had announced that he would not comply with the city`s ban. He was arrested, and his guns were seized.
The New York City Police Department (NYPD) notified the 2,340 New Yorkers who had been licensed earlier to possess semi-automatic rifles and shotguns that any of those licensed firearms that were covered by the ban had to be surrendered, rendered inoperable, or taken out of the city. The recipients of the notification were directed to send back a sworn statement indicating what had been done with those firearms. NYPD Deputy Commissioner of Legal Matters Jeremy Travis, told the Daily News at the time, “for now, the department is taking owners at their word, but spot checks are planned.”
During the mayoral administration of Michael Bloomberg, New York City again used its firearms registry to confiscate guns.
In 2010, the city passed an ordinance prohibiting the possession of rifles or shotguns capable of holding more than five rounds of ammunition. In 2013, the NYPD began sending out letters to registered gun owners alerting them that their firearm was banned. The letters demanded that gun owners either surrender their firearm, permanently modify the firearm to bring it into compliance with the ordinance, or remove it from New York City. Those who chose to modify or move a prohibited firearm were forced to submit documentation to the government that they had done so.
For more proof that registration facilitates confiscation consider New Zealand’s recent gun control measures.
In early 2019, the New Zealand Parliament enacted a ban on the sale and possession of all semi-automatic centerfire rifles and semi-automatic and pump-action shotguns capable of holding more than five rounds of ammunition. To enforce the prohibition, New Zealand required owners to surrender their newly-prohibited firearms.
However, New Zealand does not have a registry of most of the banned rifles and shotguns. This created a policy dilemma for New Zealand’s gun control advocates. Without knowing how many newly-prohibited firearms were in the country or who owned them, there was no effective way for the anti-gun officials to enforce their oppressive edict.
Complaining that the lack of a registry would hamper enforcement, New Zealand Police Association President Chris Cahill told the press in May, “We really have no idea how many of these firearms are out there in New Zealand… Which really points to how bad our firearms legislation has been, that we have let this get out of control.”
Gun Control NZ co-founder Philippa Yasbek admitted that the lack of a registry would make the firearms confiscation plan difficult. Yasbek was quoted by the Washington Post as stating, “These weapons are unlikely to be confiscated by police because they don’t know of their existence… These will become black-market weapons if their owners choose not to comply with the law and become criminals instead.”
Gun owners will not comply
Contrary to what Gov. Northam might think, gun owners are not stupid. Gun owners understand that firearms registration is an integral part of the gun control plan to disarm law-abiding Americans and choose not to comply.
According to New York State Police Data there was massive noncompliance with the SAFE Act’s registration provisions. Out of an estimated 1-1.2 million semi-automatic firearms within the state that were required to be registered under the act, 23,847 people registered a grand total of 44,485 guns. Using the lower estimate of one million semi-automatic firearms, the data shows a compliance rate of 4%.
A 2013 Connecticut law required residents to register commonly-owned semiautomatic firearms, and individual magazines with a capacity greater than 10, by January 1, 2014. Out of an estimated several hundred thousand guns and 2.4 million magazines that were required to be registered, Connecticut gun owners had registered 50,016 firearms and a mere 38,290 magazines.
In 1989, California enacted a law requiring registration of commonly-owned semi-automatic firearms. According to a February 17, 1992 Los Angeles Times article, in the years following enactment only 46,062 semi-autos were registered. The article went on to note, “The state Department of Justice has estimated there are 200,000 to 300,000. Others have calculated as many as 450,000 to 600,000.” The authorities attempted to bolster the lackluster compliance with a 90-day amnesty period at the start of 1992; this program only netted another 13,470 firearms.
Fight back
All Virginia gun owners must organize to stand and fight against Northam and Bloomberg’s gun registration plan. Virginia’s anti-gun legislators have made it clear that they intend to confiscate guns and any registration scheme would enable their unconstitutional plans.
Stay tuned to for updates. In the meantime, please sign up to volunteer to help defeat this and other terrible gun control legislation.
