Imagine a Christian school that believes what Christians have believed for 2,000 years, and what everybody believed until the day before yesterday! Now imagine a believing Christian agreeing to work for that believing Christian school! Now, (and get ready to shift your outrage gear to nuclear) imagine that Christian was none other than second lady of the United States Karen Pence, an unapologetic Christian married to unapologetic Christian and VP Mike Pence.
As part of her Art Therapy: Healing with a Heart initiative, Second Lady Karen Pence started working part-time with Northern Virginia’s Immanuel Christian School. Of course, this “generated controversy” because the school promoted Christian values such as traditional marriage. And during Wednesday’s edition of CBS Evening News, the network apparently tried to shame Mrs. Pence for sticking with her values.
The continuing saga of Florida transgender teen, Jazz Jennings, takes us through the last steps approaching her "gender confirmation surgery" in the fifth season.

One of the most ignored passages in federal legislation came in the Public Broadcasting Act of 1967, insisting that public TV and radio should insure "objectively and balance in all programs of a controversial nature." Take the debate over transgenderism. That debate has two sides, and it's controversial, and yet on Saturday night, the PBS NewsHour aired almost 14 minutes of transgender advocacy without any rebuttal from an opposing point of view.
Female tennis great, feminist, and gay rights activist Martina Navratilova may have just compromised her status as an LGBTQ icon with a Tuesday evening tweet. Navratilova criticized current transgender policies in sports, stating “you can’t just proclaim yourself a female and be able to compete against women.”
The dominant story on the front page of Tuesday’s USA Today was incredibly one-sided on “transgender equality.” Above and below a picture of trans man Grayson Russo were the headlines “Some Americans are denied ‘lifesaving’ health care / Because they identify as transgender.” Right under the headline is a large pull quote to add to the theme: “These are lifesaving procedures, and to deny somebody a lifesaving procedure is malpractice,”
Born a boy, Andraya Yearwood is of great value to the LGBTQ agenda. So is Mirin Fader, a Bleacher Report writer who uses Yearwood's story to promote transgenderism. In her feature on Yearwood, Fader comes up with excuse after excuse to wiggle out of obvious advantages that males have over women in sports competition.
On Monday morning, ABC's Good Morning America took the time to celebrate the first time that a transgender contestant has gotten to participate in the Miss Universe pagent even though he ended up losing. It was celebrated as "groundbreaking" and "history-making."
Though not even making it through the first elimination round of contestants in the 2018 Miss Universe pageant, Miss Spain Angela Ponce was awarded her very own segment during the show. Televised on Fox December 16, Ponce was celebrated as the first transgender woman to enter the contest and given a standing ovation.
On Thursday, The New York Times published an op-ed arguing that mental health professionals should abandon treating gender dysphoria, the condition most typically associated with transgenderism, as a mental disorder.
Beauty pageants could be approaching their biggest cultural watershed moment yet. Not only has Angela Ponce, the trans woman crowned 2018’s Miss Spain, become the first transgender to compete for the Miss Universe crown, she is poised to win the entire competition. She claims the victory would be “a win for human rights,” and a slam to conservatives and Trump.
Author Garrard Conley wants the film adaptation of his novel Boy Erased: The Memoir to inspire people to realize that controversial “Gay conversion therapy” is “torture.” The movie Boy Erased has been pushed by the media for Oscar nods, with outlets hoping it might be the next LGBTQ film in line to win major industry nominations and awards, after 2016’s Moonlight and last year’s Call Me By Your Name. The media of course has been running cover for the film and at the same time subtly bashing Christian parents for even hinting that it may be wrong for kids to embrace homosexuality.
