    I'm not going to be silent about this. As I stated before I'm not going to be erased or ignored.

    If they do kick out the 15 thousand troops they have to replace them. Not going to be easy because some are in high security positions.

    I was stationed in Texas back in 1971. I liked San Antonio and Houston. The problem is that their politics stink.

    Congratulations on a job well done, Ellen. I'm so happy that you and Israel present transgender families in a positive manner.  This is something I try and do everyday.

    I just read their Facebook page. Not a lot of information but it seems that much has been going on for awhile. I wanted to go the conference at some point. I hope and pray that it does come back in some form.

    I don't believe suicide is talked about enough. I was happy that transgender people who died by their own hand were remembered at transgender day of remembrance services. Since marriage equality has become the law of the land  a number of lgbt organizations have curtailed or ceased operations. Once again transgender folks have been left behind.

    My question is what does religion freedom have to do with helping a person in need?
    I'm a Christian and I see the hypocrisy of that statement.

    This is what I've been doing. An awful of people who still don't know about what it is to be transgender. Even in the LGB community the knowledge is lacking.

    I have never read this in my 40+ years of being a Christian. I did an in-depth study on this using Hebrew texts. I may do another study on this. It will be helpful whenever someone confronts me with scripture alleged opposing my being transgender.

    When women smile at me I smile back. I'm more aware of having good posture.

    It's bad enough that people lump sexuality and gender together.  They are not the same. This is where the confusion is, and most people actually believe that they are.

    I have Native American ancestry (Choctaw). I need to research about gender from my tribe and ancestors.

    Really sad. I'm Christian and find this really appalling. Trashing people because they are different is NOT Christ-like. Are there degrees of Sin? Certainly not. We are created in God's image. It doesn't say anything about having to be straight in order to be part of God's kingdom.

    These so-called bathroom bills are more trouble than they are worth. There's going to be a lot of lawsuits, I promise you.

    Sacred,But Not Welcome
    The month of May has marked a decided shift in the strategy for full inclusion of LGBTQ persons within the United Methodist Church (UMC).
    In the past ten days, more than 126 clergy and candidates for ordained ministry have endorsed two separate open letters to the Church outing themselves as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender or queer.
    Since United Methodist Church law prohibits “practicing, self-avowed homosexuals” from ministry, many of these clergy now risk losing their credentials. With the quadrennial business meeting of the denomination in full swing, the timing of these letters—released on the eve of the UMC General Conference—couldn’t be better.-by Pamela R. Lightsey.

    What's even sadder is that people actually believe all this stuff.
