Mainstreaming Alternate Lifestyles

Radio Commentary, 90.7, 91.7 New Life FM, November 17, 2017 – By Sue Ella Deadwyler

It took 39 years, but the education establishment has reached its 1978 goal to transform culture.  1978 was the year the president of the National Education Association, boldly, “spilled the beans” in a magazine interview with this statement, “We will need to recognize that the so-called ‘basic skills,’ which currently represent nearly the total effort in elementary schools, will be taught in one quarter of the present school day … the teacher will be a conveyer of values, a philosopher .… Teachers no longer will be victims of change; we will be agents of change.”

In 1982, the Georgia Department of Education published and implemented a three-volume Middle School Seminar Series for teachers.  The first volume was Psychological Education; second, Personal Education; third, Achievement Education.  On page 9 of Psychological Education is the “Group Contract” for each student to sign, pledging to keep the class work confidential, even from parents.

Fast-forward another ten years to 1992 when the Georgia Department of Education revealed Georgia’s Sexuality Education Training guidelines based on “universally held values.”  Note the change from sex education, concerning undisputed biological facts, to sexuality education, about variant sexual behavior.

Compelled Speech & Fallacious Words

Radio Commentary, 90.7, 91.7 New Life FM, November 10, 2017 – By Sue Ella Deadwyler

Today, my subject is “compelled speech” and “fallacious words.”  “Compelled speech” is the forced use of language, terminology, or words that you don’t choose to use, but you must use or suffer the consequences.  “Fallacious words” express false or mistaken ideas, opinions, or errors.  I’m using those words in the context of gender identity that’s being forced upon our culture, from preschoolers to nursing homes for senior citizens.  By the way, compelled speech is presumptively unconstitutional because it is forced.

Both phrases apply to the October 6th LGBT Senior Bill of Rights that authorized California to jail nursing home and long-term care residents that don’t use preferred gender pronouns of other residents.  Also, it’s an example of fallacious words, since residents of those facilities must disregard the truth about other residents’ biological sex and address them by the pronoun that reflects their choice of gender (sexual behavior) identity.  See Leviticus 19:19, Job 21:10, Job 38:29 in the Bible, KJV.

Some say using preferred pronouns show respect for the trans-person, but it shows even more disrespect for those who recognize the fallacy of the words and are compelled to speak a falsehood that rejects the truth. Continue reading

Military Restricts Religious Freedom

Radio Commentary, 90.7, 91.7 New Life FM, November 3, 2017 – By Sue Ella Deadwyler

The National Campaign to Stop the War on Religious Freedom in the Military is circulating a petition that should be signed by U.S. citizens who want to reverse the unconstitutional restrictions made during the Obama administration.

For example, the Pentagon launched a campaign to make it a crime for service members (including military Chaplains) to share their faith.

That campaign was counteracted on May 4 this year, when President Trump issued his Executive Order requiring all federal departments, including the Department of Defense, to “vigorously enforce” federal religious liberty laws, so Christians in the military are “free to practice their faith without fear of retaliation by the federal government.”

Although Christians face many problems in the military, we’ll consider only a few more:  In 2011, the Bible was banned from the premises of Walter Reed Military Medical Center, untila fierce public backlash forced them to put it back.  Continue reading

Women in Combat Deemed “Job Opportunities”

“They’ll be allowed to drive tanks, fire mortars, and lead infantry soldiers into combat. They’ll be able to serve as Army Rangers and Green Berets, Navy SEALs, Marine Corps infantry, Air Force parajumpers, and everything else that was previously open only to men.” –Department of Defense Secretary Ashton Carter, April 2016

Although Marine Corps officials asked former Defense Secretary Ashton Carter to keep women out of positions such as infantry, machine gunner, and fire support, the request was denied. Mr. Carter declared that the rule placing women in combat would “apply without exception.”

Background. The Women’s Armed Services Integration Act of 1948 excluded women from combat. In 2012, during the Obama administration, Pentagon policies were changed to allow women to serve in 14,000 military positions formerly restricted to men, leaving 238,000 men-only positions. Soon, women were admitted to Navy submarines and the Army Ranger School which graduated three women in 2015 – two in August and a third several weeks later.

Also in 2012, three years after a group of servicewomen sued the Pentagon, then-Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta announced a subsequent rule, that “just happened” to come two months after the suit was filed, and “just happened” to allow women to serve in combat.

By January 24, 2013 the Combat Exclusion Policy was lifted, as recommended by the Joint Chiefs of Staff in that Administration. To avoid the term “women in combat,” the Pentagon ordered all services to admit women into all jobs by January 2016. Also that date was the deadline for all military services to change to gender-neutral physical tests and adopt a policy that requires men and women (without exception) to serve in front line combat and complete combat operations. Therefore, front-line combat positions became co-ed and mandatory.

Under current military policy, both men and women deemed fit for combat are eligible for assignment to front line combat positions, the Pentagon calls “job opportunities” for women.

In April 2016 the U.S. Army announced the first 22 women to become infantry and amour second lieutenants in charge of units of 40 troops. Also in April 2016, of the 29 women who tried to complete the Marine Corps Infantry Officer Course, all 29 of them failed.
