Pre-teen Secret Uterus Tampering - Seattle Schools

-- From "Seattle 6th Graders Can’t Get a Coke at School, But Can Get an IUD" by Kathleen Brown, CNSNews.com 7/1/15

Middle and high school students can’t get a Coca-Cola or a candy bar at 13 Seattle public schools, but they can get a taxpayer-funded intrauterine device (IUD) implanted without their parents’ consent.

School-based health clinics in at least 13 Seattle-area public high schools and middle schools offer long-acting reversible contraceptives (LARCs), including IUDs and hormonal implants, to students in sixth-grade and above at no cost, according to Washington State officials.

LARCs are associated with serious side effects, such as uterine perforation and infection. IUDs, specifically, can also act as abortifacients by preventing the implantation of a fertilized egg.

The state and federally funded contraceptive services are made possible by Take Charge, a Washington State Medicaid program which provides free birth control to adults who are uninsured, lack contraceptive coverage, have an income at or below 260 percent of the Federal Poverty Level -- or, in this case, to teens who don’t want their parents to know they’re on birth control.

Transgender/Gay Agenda Mandated in Virginia School

For the second time in as many months, the Fairfax County (Virginia) School Board defied the majority of citizens by turning up the volume on Gay Agenda indoctrination, starting in the 7th grade.  While keeping the public guessing, and causing conflicting media reports, the School Board injected new sexual perversion education into the curricula and repeatedly shifted several aspects to and from mandatory classes, thus forbidding parents from opting their children out.

-- From "Fairfax School Board approves adding transgender topic to teens’ class" by T. Rees Shapiro, education reporter, Washington Post 6/26/15

The 10-to-2 vote Thursday night came amid shouts of anger and howls of frustration from a raucous crowd that largely stood in opposition to the curriculum changes.

The board’s decision centered on changes to the Family Life Education curriculum across all grades. The revisions included adding lessons on gender issues for middle and high school students. But some of those who opposed the changes questioned whether the revisions would trickle down to the lower grades.

Opponents also expressed concern that some of the revisions would move certain sensitive lessons out of the Family Life Education curriculum and into health class, which would remove parents’ ability to opt-out their children from learning the material. The health class is a required course; Family Life Education is not.

At the last minute, the board moved ahead and overwhelmingly voted in support of the lesson changes, with Reed and Schultz the only votes against the new curriculum. In a slight concession, the board also voted to move some of the earlier proposed lessons back to their original place in the Family Life Education curriculum, allowing parental opt-outs for children.

From "Va. County Imposes Transgender Lessons On Middle Schoolers" by Kerry Picket, Reporter, Daily Caller 6/30/15

Fairfax County School Board member Elizabeth Schultz, one of the two dissenting votes on the curriculum change vote, told The Daily Caller that the curriculum committee, which is not a committee of the school board, spent a year going through particular sections of the family life education curriculum and recommended to the board to move parts of the family life curriculum, which included gender identity and transgender issues, over to the health curriculum.

“Once you move something out of family life, the family life education curriculum delivery method and into a health curriculum, by default, a parent no longer has the right to opt out,” Schultz said. ”And so there were huge sections, not just of the more controversial topics but even basic things about family units and emotions and social development they suggested to move to the health curriculum.”

The Fairfax School system is the nation’s tenth largest. According to one local outlet, classes pertaining to personal development (emotions/feelings, self-image, self-concept, personal characteristics, skills to work and play successfully in a community), healthy relationships (includes conflict resolution skills), respecting individual differences (disabilities, ethnicities, cultures), and mental health issues like depression and suicide, were all moved to from family life to the health curriculum.

From "Health Curriculum To More Closely Align with State" by Tim Peterson, Virginia Connection Newspapers 6/26/15

At the board’s regular meeting on June 25, the first and foremost action item was voting on recommended changes to the Family Life Education and health education curricula for grades Kindergarten through 10. The changes were proposed by the Family Life Education Curriculum Advisory Committee, an ad hoc group set up, according to the School Board, to align the school system’s lessons with Virginia Department of Education health standards and evaluate new standards for opt-out-optional Family Life Education.

Changes included adding gender identity and sexual orientation to Family Life Education, beginning in seventh grade, as well as moving a portion of the curriculum from Family Life Education to students’ health courses. Parents may opt their students out of any Family Life Education class, while the health lessons are mandatory for all students.

Between May 21 and June 19, the recommendations were put online for community review. During that period, the School Board reports, staff received 561 emails, plus a petition signed by 116. It amounted to 225 pages of citizen comments, all of which can be viewed and read through the School Board’s agenda notes for the June 25 meeting.

Among the breakdown of responses (also posted in the June 25 agenda notes) 435 were opposed to “inclusion of transgender instruction and references to gender-fluidity,” while 54 supported “inclusion of sexual orientation and gender identity instruction.”

[Citizens speaking] before the board claimed many of the curriculum items coming out of Family Life Education and into health were not actually required as part of the state standards of learning. And the prospect of losing the opportunity to opt their children out of material not required by the state was infuriating for some.

Pope in 17,000 Condoms at Museum in Wisconsin

The Milwaukee Art Museum is proudly displaying a portrait of Pope Benedict XVI made from thousands of colored condoms, and although Catholics are complaining that the so-called artwork is disgusting, insulting, blasphemous, etc., no one plans violence against the museum or anyone involved.  In fact, museum memberships have dramatically increased!
“Our hope is that the piece will bring not only controversy, but room for conversation—about the underlying discussion the artist intended as well as regarding the role of art in public discussion.”

-- From "Portrait of Pope Benedict XVI Made of Condoms Sparks Controversy in Milwaukee" by Sarah Begley, Time Magazine 6/29/15

“Eggs Benedict,” created by Niki Johnson, was purchased by a local gay rights advocate for $25,000 and donated to the museum, the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel reports. Johnson says she was inspired by the former pope’s 2009 remarks that condoms would only worsen the problem of AIDS in Africa.

While some like-minded fans of the work have called the museum in support, it has also drawn powerful critics. Milwaukee Archbishop Jerome Listecki has condemned the portrait, and his chief of staff called it “either an intentional attack on a faith tradition and its teachings or a publicity stunt for the artist.” Several longtime friends of the museum have canceled their memberships in protest, and one docent resigned.

“Eggs Benedict” is scheduled to go on display this November after renovations are completed on the museum’s collections galleries; the institution is considering presenting an interfaith panel on debate around the work.

From "Controversial Condom Portrait of Pope Benedict XVI Displayed by Milwaukee Art Museum, Catholics Call It 'Attack on Faith'" by Stoyan Zaimov, Christian Post Reporter 6/30/15

The museum reportedly noted that it has received over 200 complaints about the portrait, and said that a handful of patrons have dropped their membership as a result of the controversy. It insisted, however, that the point of the art piece is to get people to think about Benedict's opposition to condoms as a method of birth control, which is a position upheld by the Vatican.

"This was never intended to be derisive, mocking or disrespectful of the pope," said museum board of trustees president Don Layden. "It was to have a conversation about AIDS and AIDS education. And my hope is when the piece appears in the museum that will be the focus of the discussion."

"Why did I buy it? I did not buy it because I thought it was beautiful," [local philanthropist and homosexualist Joseph] Pabst explained. "I bought it because I thought it was provocative and I thought it was important. ... This piece has work to do. It has to make people think and have discussions."

From "Milwaukee Art Museum's embrace of condom portrait of pope draws disgust" by Annysa Johnson, Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel 6/30/15

When it was first unveiled at the Portrait Society Gallery in Milwaukee in 2013, the piece drew international attention — and condemnation from many quarters. Titled "Eggs Benedict," it was inspired by comments made by the pope during a 2009 visit to Africa in which he suggested that the use of condoms could exacerbate the spread of AIDS.

Controversy around the portrait subsided until news of the acquisition and planned prominent display became public June 16.

Jerry Topczewski, chief of staff for [Archbishop] Listecki, called [museum director Layden's] explanation "a smoke screen."

"What's at play here is either an intentional attack on a faith tradition and its teachings or a publicity stunt for the artist," he said. "And we would be opposed to any faith tradition or religious leader being attacked in such a way."

"It seems like in the world of art, the last bastion of acceptable prejudice is Catholic Christians," said Kathleen Arenz of River Hills, a longtime docent who expressed her disappointment to the museum.

Critics have questioned whether the museum would display a similar piece that Muslims or Jews would find offensive.

A spokeswoman said the Milwaukee museum has sold a record a number of memberships in recent days.

[Artist] Johnson said her decision to illustrate Pope Benedict with condoms was designed to normalize conversations about safe sex. She also said the resulting attention has helped her further her advocacy in this field.

Johnson recently returned from Memphis, Tennessee, where she curated Preservatif, an exhibition of condom-based artwork by 20 artists from around the country. It opened Saturday, on National HIV Testing Day.

Religious Liberty in Homosexualists' Crosshairs

Having destroyed marriage and family in America, the sexual revolutionaries and their cohorts are planning their next advance on their ultimate target: Christianity.  In response, Christians are circling the wagons around the First Freedom of the Constitution, but recent cowering by so-called conservative government leaders does not bode well for freedom of religion in America.

-- From "After gay marriage loss in high court, conservatives issue call to arms for religious freedom" by Rachel Zoll And Steve Peoples, Associated Press 6/29/15

The religious liberty fight isn't about what happens inside the sanctuary. First Amendment protections for worship and clergy are clear. Potential conflicts could arise, however, over religious organizations with some business in the public arena. That category ranges from small religious associations that rent reception halls to the public, to the nation's massive network of faith-based social service agencies that receive millions of dollars in government grants. Some groups, such as the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops, also want protections for individual business owners who consider it immoral to provide benefits for the same-sex spouse of an employee or cater gay weddings.

Conservative religious groups have for years been on watch for potential clashes over religious liberty and gay rights, and have been lobbying for religious exemptions in statehouses and Congress. . . .

Earlier this month, more than 70 Catholic and evangelical educators sent a letter to House Speaker John Boehner and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell urging them to take action to protect conservative religious schools in case of government action to revoke the schools' nonprofit status.

And last week in Congress, Sen. Mike Lee of Utah and Rep. Raul Labrador of Idaho, both Republicans, introduced the First Amendment Defense Act, which would prohibit the federal government from taking action against an institution that opposes same-sex marriage by revoking a tax-exemption or barring them from receiving grants or contracts.

From "ACLU disavows support for federal ‘religious liberty’ law" posted at Atlanta Journal Constitution 6/29/15

In all of the hoopla over Friday’s U.S. Supreme Court decision on gay marriage, you might have missed the Washington Post op-ed by an ACLU official, saying her legal defense organization could no longer support the federal Religious Freedom Restoration Act.

Louise Melling, the ACLU’s deputy legal director, cited last year’s Hobby Lobby decision by the Supremes, and the prospect that religious organizations will use RFRA to discriminate against gay married couples. . . .

In other words, the federal fight over the fallout from Friday’s high court ruling will exactly parallel the one that Georgia has experienced the last two years. Another round next year is inevitable. . . .

From "ACLU: Why we can no longer support the federal ‘religious freedom’ law" by Louise Melling, American Civil Liberties Union, Washington Post 6/25/15

The ACLU supported the RFRA’s passage at the time [1993] because it didn’t believe the Constitution, as newly interpreted by the Supreme Court, would protect people . . . whose religious expression does not harm anyone else. But we can no longer support the law in its current form. For more than 15 years, we have been concerned about how the RFRA could be used to discriminate against others. As the events of the past couple of years amply illustrate, our fears were well-founded. [The RFRA] is now often used as a sword to discriminate against women, gay and transgender people and others. Efforts of this nature will likely only increase should the Supreme Court rule — as is expected — that same-sex couples have the freedom to marry.

In the Hobby Lobby case last year, a Supreme Court majority blessed the use of the RFRA by businesses to deny employees insurance coverage for contraception, a benefit guaranteed by law, if those businesses object on religious grounds and there is some other means of furthering the government’s interests. . . .

In the states, legislators, governors and businesses are citing state religious freedom restoration acts to justify all manner of discrimination against gay men and lesbians, including at commercial establishments. At the federal level, the Justice Department — under both the Bush and Obama administrations — has said that the government would violate the RFRA if it were to require that organizations not discriminate in hiring on religious grounds in order to receive government funding.

Yes, religious freedom needs protection. But religious liberty doesn’t mean the right to discriminate or to impose one’s views on others. . . .

From "Marriage Won, Gay Rights Battle Moves to Religious Liberty Laws" by Andrew M Harris, Bloomberg Business 6/26/15

While such unions were already legal in most of the U.S. before Friday’s ruling, 28 states don’t have laws prohibiting discrimination against lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people. Individuals in those states who lose their jobs or are refused an apartment because of sexual orientation don’t have the same rights as people elsewhere, a fact largely unchanged by the landmark decision.

While the ruling removes some obstacles to equal rights, including tax, health-benefit and even hospital visitation issues, other inequities may remain. . . .

Pennsylvania Governor Tom Wolf, a Democrat, said Friday that his state legislature “should stand-up and pass non-discrimination for LGBTQ Pennsylvanians, so that they can no longer fear being discriminated in employment or housing for being who they are.”

U.S. Senator Jeff Merkley, an Oregon Democrat, has said he plans to introduce legislation next month to protect lesbians, gays, bisexuals and the transgender people nationwide.

Merkley said the law is needed to replace a patchwork of state laws and guarantee the rights of the LGBT community in the workplace, education, federal programs and housing.

Requiring businesses to serve everyone isn’t an infringement on religious freedom, gay rights advocates contend.

From "Gay marriage faces southern rebellion as couples hit state bureaucracy's wall" by Alan Yuhas in New York and Tom Dart in New Orleans for The UK Guardian 6/27/15

Almost immediately after the supreme court on Friday made same-sex marriage a right throughout the United States, conservative leaders around the south indicated they would resist the ruling with delay, bureaucratic niggling and circumvention of the verdict on religious grounds.

Texas governor Greg Abbott quickly gave state officials his tacit approval to deny same-sex couples marriage licenses should the officials object on religious grounds. On Friday, Abbott sent agencies a memo, railing against “religious coercion” and citing the Texas Religious Freedom Restoration Act, that directed them to take no action against any official “on account of the person’s act or refusal to act that is substantially motivated by sincere religious belief”.

Louisiana governor Bobby Jindal – a declared candidate for president in 2016 – made similar remarks, saying in a statement: “This decision will pave the way for an all out assault against the religious freedom rights of Christians who disagree.”

His state’s attorney general, James “Buddy” Caldwell, attempted to stall the ruling, saying his office “found nothing in today’s decision that makes the court’s order effective immediately”.

From "Republicans pivot from gay marriage to religious liberty fight" by Eric Bradner, CNN 6/28/15

Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee channeled Martin Luther King, Jr. calling for non-violent resistance to the court's ruling.

"May I ask, are we going to now discriminate against people of conscience, people of faith, who disagree with this ruling?" he said on ABC's "This Week." "I'm not sure that every governor and every attorney general should just say, 'Well, it's the law of the land' because there's no enabling legislation."

Texas Sen. Ted Cruz went even further in the wake of the ruling, telling an Iowa crowd that "the last 24 hours at the United States Supreme Court were among the darkest hours of our nation."

And Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal predicted the fight over religious liberty would persist through the 2016 election.

"Here's where the next fight's going: I think the left is now going to go after our First Amendment rights," Jindal said on NBC's "Meet the Press."

"I think it is wrong for the federal government to force Christian individuals, businesses, pastors, churches to participate in wedding ceremonies that violate our sincerely held religious beliefs," he said. "We have to stand up and fight for religious liberty. That's where this fight is going. The left wants to silence us, Hillary Clinton wants to silence us, we're not going away."

From "Texas will give legal help to officials who refuse same-sex couples on religious beliefs" by Molly Hennessy-Fiske, Los Angeles Times 6/29/15

Republican Texas Atty. Gen. Ken Paxton issued a statement and a nonbinding legal opinion on Sunday saying religious freedoms guaranteed by the 1st Amendment “may allow accommodation of their religious objections to issuing same-sex marriage licenses.”

Clerks who refuse to license same-sex couples “may well face litigation and/or a fine,” Paxton wrote. “But numerous lawyers stand ready to assist clerks defending their religious beliefs, in many cases on a pro-bono basis, and I will do everything I can from this office to be a public voice for those standing in defense of their rights.”

“In recognizing a new constitutional right in 2015, the Supreme Court did not diminish, overrule, or call into question the rights of religious liberty that formed the first freedom in the Bill of Rights in 1791. This newly minted federal constitutional right to same-sex marriage can and should peaceably coexist with longstanding constitutional and statutory rights, including the rights to free exercise of religion and freedom of speech,” [Paxton] wrote.

Paxton's opinion was echoed by Republican Gov. Greg Abbott, who issued a directive Friday to state agency heads to protect the religious liberties of all Texans.

"In the wake of the Supreme Court’s decision, the law’s promise of religious liberty will be tested by some who seek to silence and marginalize those whose conscience will not allow them to participate in or endorse marriages that are incompatible with their religious beliefs," Abbott noted. "As government officials, we have a constitutional duty to preserve, protect and defend the religious liberty of every Texan."

While some celebrate the Supreme Court’s ruling on same-sex marriage, others are gearing up for a new legal battleground, saying they want to protect religious liberties in the wake of the ruling.

Utah Rep. LaVar Christensen, R-District 32, introduced a bill titled the Religious Liberty Act last legislative session, and it sought to put into writing specific protections for people claiming their actions that may be construed as anti-LGBT were taken in accordance with their faith.

Some argued the bill was flawed, doing more harm than good, and it failed to pass.

“Our friend LaVar Christensen possibly will have another [Religious Freedom Restoration Act] bill like he did last year, but a majority of the Republican controlled senate said, ‘No, we want to actually collaborate with the LGBT community.”

In recognition of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LBGT) Pride Month, Interior Secretary Sally Jewell announced on Friday that the Henry Gerber House in Chicago has been designated a National Historic Landmark, becoming the nation’s second LGBT-related property to achieve such recognition.

Gerber formed the Society for Human Rights, a group that advocated for homosexual men, in his Chicago home in 1924.

Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel said his city is "deeply honored" by what he called a fitting tribute to a civil rights pioneeer: "This designation will help to teach generations of children about his important contributions to our city and our country,” Emanuel said in a statement.

From "Henry Gerber House named as National Historic Landmark" by Dawn Rhodes, Chicago Tribune 6/19/15

The Henry Gerber House in the Old Town Triangle neighborhood on Friday became only the second LGBT-related property in the country to receive the recognition. The iconic Stonewall Inn in New York City is the other building listed primarily for its impact in LGBT history, according to the U.S. Department of the Interior.

The tribute comes in the midst of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender Pride Month, celebrated every year in June.

Carrie Barnett, board president of the Gerber/Hart Library and Archives, said the spotlight on Gerber and his home helps to fill in the historical narrative of the gay rights movement. The library in Chicago's Rogers Park neighborhood is named for Gerber and Pearl M. Hart, an attorney who also fought for the rights of gays and lesbians.

Gerber, originally from Germany, came to the United States in 1913. He became interested in gay rights while stationed in Germany with the U.S. Army in the 1920s and learned about the gay liberation movement in his native country, according to the Gerber/Hart Library and Archives.

From "Henry Gerber: The gay rights pioneer you probably never heard of" by Tammye Nash, My Gay Houston 2/17/15

Early in 1917, Gerber was committed for a short time to a mental institution because he was gay. But after the U.S. declared war on Germany on April 2, 1917 and entered World War I, Gerber — like other German immigrants — was given the choice of being declared an enemy alien and locked up (you know, like what happened to a lot of Japanese-Americans in World Word II), or enlisting in the Army. Surprise, surprise, Gerber chose to enlist in the Army.

When he got out of the Army, Gerber returned to Chicago and went to work for the U.S. Post Office there. But he didn’t forget what he had seen and learned in Germany, and in 1924 Gerber founded the Society for Human Rights, the oldest documented LGBT organization in the country.

Gerber filed for and received nonprofit status for his new organization, and African-American clergyman John T. Graves signed on as president. Graves, Gerber and five other men were named as members of the organization’s board. The state of Illinois granted the Society for Human Rights its charter on Dec. 10, 1924. Gerber also started “Friendship and Freedom,” the SHR’s newsletter, which is the first known gay-interest publication. It only lasted for two issues, as most SHR members were afraid to have it mailed to their homes.

From "Library of Congress Promotes Gay Erotica Literature at Pride Month Event" by Penny Starr, CNSNews.com 6/23/15

The federally funded Library of Congress held an event to mark Gay Pride Month on Thursday to showcase the publication of literature focused on the homosexual lifestyle, including a gay man’s photography of nude male subjects and poetry by gays and lesbians about their homosexuality.

According the Congressional Budget Office, the Library of Congress’ mission is “to support the Congress in fulfilling its constitutional duties and to further the progress of knowledge and creativity for the benefit of the American people.”

A one-hour lecture was presented by Stathis Orphanos, a homosexual photographer whose “work celebrates the male body,” including nude photos of men and photo essays of military men in various states of dress, according to Orphanos and to a description of his work on a website that includes biographical information about gay and lesbian celebrity figures.

Three other publishers of homosexual literature were featured in a panel discussion, including Bryan Borland, who explained how he started his publishing house, which produces “Assaracus: A Journal of Gay Poetry.”

Borland explained that he started his journal after a homosexual mentor published some of his poetry in a journal called Ganymede, named for a mythical Greek figure. When John Stahle died, Borland said he wanted to continue his work but under a different title.

“My research showed me that in Greek mythology Ganymede had a bother Assaracus – his earthbound brother,” Borland said. “While Ganymede was swept up by Zeus’s eagle to serve at Zeus’ feet, there was Assaracus, and I thought what a perfect name for a journal of gay poetry.

Wisc. Prof. Threatens Student for her Christianity

Lawyers representing Rachel Langeberg are demanding an apology from sociology Professor Annette Kuhlman of the University of Wisconsin-Baraboo/Sauk County for threatening to fail Langeberg if she referenced Bible verses in a group presentation regarding sociological perspectives.
“ . . . we are living in a society that separates church and state; the University of Wisconsin is a secular institution.  Religious contemplations and the bible [sic] belong to a different realm and not academic sources.  So your argumentation along Christian lines . . . are inappropriate for this presentation.  I will not allow you to present unless you change this.  You will also fail your presentation if your [sic] discuss religion in connection with it.”

-- From "Student allegedly threatened with failing grade for including Biblical references in group presentation" by Gabriella Morrongiello, Reporter, Campus Reform 6/25/15

In a recent letter to administrators at the University of Wisconsin-Baraboo/Sauk County, the Liberty Counsel—a nonprofit, conservative litigation group—accused sociology Professor Annette Kuhlman of expressing “unconstitutional hostility toward religious belief” in her spring semester Crime and Criminal Justice course.

According to the Liberty Counsel, a draft of the group presentation sent to Professor Kuhlman included a section in which Langeberg used the Judeo-Christian theory of human nature—which asserts that humans are sinful both in practice and by nature—as one explanation for why individuals commit arson.

Langeberg subsequently chose to omit the religious references from her presentation to avoid failing the assignment and putting her group members’ grades at risk. . . .

According to the Counsel, Langeberg’s attempt to meet with school’s dean, Dr. Tracy White, and Kuhlman were unsuccessful, which led her to seek legal representation.

UW-Baraboo/Sauk County did not respond to Campus Reform’s request for comment.

From "Unconstitutional censorship of student speech and discrimination on the basis of religion" letter by Liberty Counsel to Dean Tracy White, University of Wisconsin Baraboo - Sauk County 6/23/15

Ms. Langeberg felt that she had no choice but to comply [with Dr. Kuhlman's direction], because the grades of her two classmates also depended on the assignment, and she could not place their grades at risk.  Based on these threats from Professor Kuhlman, Ms. Langeberg changed the assignment, removing the material about competing worldviews and the causes of the crime of arson, which resulted in a presentation that deprived the class of the richness of diverse ideological perspectives. Indeed, a "theist perspective" on the causes of crime - "the heart...is desperately wicked," and that "from the heart come evil thoughts, murder, adultery, all sexual immorality, theft, lying and slander" - is just as valid a position as various sociological perspectives. Ms. Langeberg's position that "juvenile arsonists commit crime because they are naturally inclined to do wrong" makes more sense than various theories that seek to absolve the arsonist of moral responsibility, whether due to "strain" on the individual, or "environmental factors" being the cause of crime," or that "lack of intelligence" causes crime.  Ms. Langeberg's conclusion accurately contrasts the two perspectives: the "secular humanist says additional research is needed as to why juvenile arson happens" in order to prevent it; while the "theist says juvenile arson happens because people are naturally inclined to violate laws or sin," and therefore, people need to be "taught the moral principles of the Bible to prevent arson."

It was highly inappropriate for Dr. Kuhlman to censor this team's work and perspective on the issue, in its original form, based on incorrect and discriminatory statements about the law and religious belief. The Constitution does not “require complete separation of church and state; it affirmatively mandates accommodation, not merely tolerance, of all religions, and forbids hostility toward any.” . . .

In the academic context of reports or presentations, when a student gives a report within the parameters of the assignment, a school is prohibited from restricting the report, or threatening a failing grade, solely because the content is religious. . . .

Liberty Counsel is deeply concerned by the facts of this situation. Your ratification of Dr. Kuhlman's conduct indicates that institutional discrimination on the basis of religion extends further than one professor. Dr. Kuhlman (and all University professors) must respect the rights of students, and cease from religiously discriminatory treatment of students providing academically responsive presentations, in accordance with course syllabi.

Demand is hereby made 1) that Dr. Kuhlman email a written apology to Ms. Langeberg's team for censoring their presentation based on her perception of and hostility toward religion; and 2) that Dr. Kuhlman email a written apology along with the original PowerPoint, to the rest of the class, stating that she made a mistake in the law, that academically-responsive assignments mentioning religion in a compare/contrast manner are appropriate, and that she hopes that they will review the team's original work to receive that team's original perspective.

If the University does not comply with this demand by Friday, July 3, 2015, Liberty Counsel will take further action to prevent irreparable harm to the rights of our client, who expressly reserves all rights.

Please be governed accordingly.

Sincerely,
Richard L. Mast, Jr., Esq

Obama's New 'Free' Sexual Mutilation: Gay Agenda

The mainstream media is cooperating with the Obama Administration to hide its latest coup on American taxpayers:  During this national homosexual "pride month" (every June), the Office of Personnel Management issued a directive to insurance companies involved with the Federal Employees Health Benefits Program requiring coverage for transgender transition including surgery of sex organs, breasts, etc.

-- From "Obama's LGBT test: End transgender military ban" by Sarah Wheaton, Politico 6/24/15

On Tuesday, the administration announced that federal employee health plans can’t exclude coverage for gender transition. That follows up on a decision last year by Medicare to cover therapy, hormones and surgery – in response to an appeal by a 74-year-old transgender Army vet.

From "Transition-Related Health Costs Now Covered for Trans Federal Employees" by Bil Browning, (LGBT) Advocate 6/23/15

The Obama Administration quietly announced a huge change for transgender government workers: effective January 1, 2016, insurance companies that participate in the Federal Employees Health Benefits Program must include transition-related coverage.

The Office of Personnel Management [OPM] let word slip on Tuesday evening, in a letter to insurers instructing them that they cannot maintain blanket exclusions of the coverage.

OPM alerted insurers a year ago that it had ended its ban on transition-related coverage, but did not require carriers to provide the benefits. A few months later, OPM "strongly encouraged" companies to provide coverage, but only three carriers opted to offer the transition-related benefits.

From "Covered Benefits for Gender Transition Services" FEHB Program Carrier Letter [to] All FEHB Carriers - U.S. Office of Personnel Management - Healthcare and Insurance Letter No. 20 (6/23/15)

Effective January 1, 2016, no carrier participating in the Federal Employees Health Benefits Program may have a general exclusion of services, drugs or supplies related to gender transition or “sex transformations.”

This letter clarifies OPM’s earlier guidance recognizing the evolving professional consensus that treatment may be medically necessary to address a diagnosis of gender dysphoria.
