Gender & School Policies
Radio Commentary, 90.7, 91.7 New Life FM, February 20, 2015 – By Sue Ella Deadwyler
Every session several bills are introduced to give civil rights status for sexual orientation and it’s happening again. The strategy behind those bills is to normalize alternate lifestyles in every aspect of culture. Sexual orientation bills introduced so far this session would change policies in public, private and religious schools, would mandate added penalties for certain crimes and require government employers to alter qualifications for jobs.
In recent years, the term “hate crime” became the foundation for increasing punishment for crimes thought to be motivated by race, color, sex, nationality or religion. Except for religion, all of those classifications are facts of birth. But since the word sex is a fact of male and female biological identity, the term “sexual orientation” began cropping up to stretch human identity beyond biological fact.
“Sexual orientation” became an umbrella term for multiple classifications of sexual behavior that keeps expanding. So, the word “gender” was substituted for the word sex. Most people assume that sex and gender mean the same, but they don’t. Those of you who have a King James Version of the Bible might have noticed Leviticus 19:19 that reveals the meaning of gender in this statement. “Thou shalt not let thy cattle gender with a diverse kind.” With those few words, the Bible defines gender as behavior.

Multi-Pronged LGBTQAI Attack on Morality
Where? Public, Private, Religious Education, Crime & Employment
Sexual offenses and crimes in the Official Code of Georgia Annotated (O.C.G.A.) are divided into five categories: Sexual Assault, Sexual Battery, Sexual Exploitation of Children, Sexual Intercourse, and Sexual Offenses. Within those five categories are at least 45 subdivisions.
Sexual crimes and offenses reflect behaviors found to be harmful to those who participate and to society as a whole. Penalties demanded upon conviction of illicit sexual behavior are intended to deter repeat offenders and prevent dalliance by anyone tempted to experiment. The Code sections under attack are all-inclusive. Title 31 deals with AIDS/HIV; Title 24 concerns DNA; Title 19 confronts child sexual abuse; Title 17, rape; Title 20, student reporting; Title 15, duties of magistrates; and Title 16 extensively covers sexual offenses from fornication to adultery to bestiality to incest to necrophilia to reckless conduct and beyond.
Thus far, a cluster of bills has been introduced in this year’s legislative session to redirect morality in Georgia. Four additional bills would establish and fund services for victims of “sexual servitude,” which includes individuals trafficked for sexual purposes, plus anyone under age 18 who participates voluntarily in prostitution, pornography, lewd massage, et al.
All Schools: H.B. 40, prefiled by Representative Keisha Waites (D) January 9, drastically changes (a) discipline policies for K – 12 students, (b) bullying definitions (c) for all public and private schools, and (d) provides no exemption for religious school doctrines.

Legalizing More Abortions
Radio Commentary, 90.7, 91.7 New Life FM, February 13, 2015 – By Sue Ella Deadwyler
In recent years, pro-life advocates worked long and hard to get the Woman’s Right to Know Act passed to limit as many abortions as possible. Now, that law is under attack. S.B. 39 was introduced by Senator Nan Orrock January 26th to authorize abortions after the second trimester, if two physicians and two consulting physicians certify abortion would preserve the life of the woman, which they never identify as an expectant mother.
S.B. 39 would eliminate current law requiring abortion doctors to preserve the life of the unborn child. In fact, it removes the word “child” from current law and substitutes the phrase “product of the abortion,” then requires medical aid for a surviving fetus to be supplied ONLY if the “product of abortion” is capable of “meaningful life,” a totally subject phrase that allows the abortion doctor to choose life or death for any child that survives an abortion.
A “medical emergency” is redefined as any condition that so complicates the medical condition of the female that an abortion is necessary to avert her death or serious risk of substantial impairment of her bodily function, but the bill has no “emergency” care for the baby. Continue reading
Hate Crime Legislation
Radio Commentary, 90.7, 91.7 New Life FM, February 6, 2015 – By Sue Ella Deadwyler
S.B. 47, introduced January 26th by Senator Fort, would change the law and drastically change culture. Currently, every citizen has equal protection under the law, regardless of race, religion, sex or national origin. Race is a characteristic of birth; national origin reflects the country of birth; religion is a spiritual choice; and sex defines natural identity. However, gender, gender identity and sexual orientation reflect aberrant sexual behavior, some of which have been prohibited for thousands of years under moral law, as well as civil law.
Gender is not a synonym for the word “sex,” which depicts male or female biological identity, while gender, gender identity and sexual orientation indicate the preferred sexual behavior or lifestyle of the individual.
S.B. 47 would enhance penalties for certain crimes, according to the REAL or PERCEIVED lifestyle of the victim. For example: upon conviction, an assault of a heterosexual (straight) individual on another heterosexual (straight) individual would be punishable as a misdemeanor, that might result in a “slap-on-the-wrist” or months in the county jail.
