OHIO PUBLIC LIBRARY OFFERS “DRAG 101” CLASSES FOR AGES 12-17

“The class is Drag 101, the building blocks of how to do drag”

A public library in Delaware, Ohio is set to host “Drag 101” classes for teenagers who want to learn how to cross-dress and perform in front of a crowd.
The Delaware County District Library will be the home of the class taught by 29-year-old drag queen Selena T. West, whose “boy name” is Kyle Gayle.
“The class is Drag 101, the building blocks of how to do drag,” said West.
West also oddly claimed the class has “nothing to do with sex or gender identity at all.”
Many would argue that young men selecting female stage names and dressing in women’s clothing and makeup has something to do with both sex and gender identity.
Republican Senate Candidate Melissa Ackison said she’s concerned about the vetting process of candidates who will teach the course, asking if there are background checks.
Ackison’s concern is understandable as earlier this year in Houston, Texas multiple members of the city’s Drag Queen Story Hour were outed as pedophiles.
She also questioned whether it is an appropriate use of tax dollars or if it’s an appropriate class for kids.
NBC 4 covered the controversial class in the following segment:
West describes the class in detail in the video below:

NEW JERSEY PUBLIC SCHOOL POSTER: “MAY ALLAH CONTINUE TO SHOWER YOU LOVE & WISDOM”

NEW JERSEY PUBLIC SCHOOL POSTER: 
“MAY ALLAH CONTINUE TO SHOWER YOU 
LOVE & WISDOM”

The Freedom of Conscience Defense Fund (FCDF) has sent out another “cease and desist”. This time to the West New York Public School District’s superintendent in New Jersey.
Less than two weeks ago, Northshore School District in Bothell in Washington, was also sent a “cease and desist” letter from the FCDF, for promoting a CAIR-suggested policy change….
The policy directs teachers to create “safe spaces” for Muslims, plan with Muslim students to let them “quietly slip away” from class for prayer, “privately offer information” about nutrition during their Ramadan fast, give “a lesson” on Ramadan and privately ask Muslim students what accommodations they want.
The latest letter to the New Jersey school demands “that two district-sponsored Ramadan posters in Memorial High School be taken down.” One of the posters states:
“May Allah Continue to Shower You Love and Wisdom”
According to Executive Director Daniel Piedra of the FCDF:
“A public school district would never hang posters praying for Jesus Christ to shower students with love and wisdom. Apparently the Left’s notion of the so-called ‘separation of church and state’ only applies to Christians.”
There is no break in the brazenness and determination of Islamic supremacists to impose the ‘supremacy of Islam’ and the sharia upon America and other Western democracies.  They are relentless.
“N.J. Public School District to Students: “May Allah Continue to Shower You Love and Wisdom”, Freedom of Conscience Defense Fund, May 29, 2019:
The Freedom of Conscience Defense Fund (FCDF) sent a “cease and desist” letter moments ago to West New York School District’s superintendent, demanding that two district-sponsored Ramadan posters in Memorial High School be taken down.
One poster offers “Warm greetings from Memorial High school” and wishes students to “Have a blessed Ramadan.” The poster then beseeches that “MAY ALLAH CONTINUE TO SHOWER YOU LOVE AND WISDOM.”
“A public school district would never hang posters praying for Jesus Christ to shower students with love and wisdom. Apparently the Left’s notion of the so-called ‘separation of church and state’ only applies to Christians.”
Daniel Piedra, FCDF Executive Director FCDF sent the letter to Superintendent Ms. Clara Brito Herrera and Scott Wolhrab, Memorial High’s principal, after an anonymous teacher contacted FCDF on behalf of other teachers, all of whom are deeply concerned about the school district’s promotion of Islam……

One can read, almost daily, of the atrocities and persecution of the ancient Christian communities in the Middle East and beyond at the hands of jihadists. This is not, as some try to claim, just a modern-day phenomenon.  Indeed, the Muslim persecution of Christians goes all the way back to the time of Muhammad.  Following Muhammad’s death, Palestine, Syria and Egypt, once the most heavily populated Christian areas in the world, quickly succumbed to Islamic invasions, and by the eighth century, Muslim armies had conquered all of Christian North Africa and Spain.

Promoting Vaccine Confidence? 

World Health Assembly 2019

TALKING TRASH ABOUT PARENTS AT THE WORLD HEALTH ASSEMBLY 2019
BY BARBARA LOE FISHER
republished below in full unedited for informational, educational and research purposes:
More than 4,000 representatives from 194 member states gathered in Geneva, Switzerland during May 20-28, 2019 to discuss human-related health issues at the 72nd World Health Assembly, a meeting of the World Health Organization’s (WHO) top decision-making body.1 On the second day of the meeting, the U.S. and 14 other governments sponsored an event “Promoting Vaccine Confidence: Embracing Global Immunization Efforts to Protect the Health of All Generations,” at which doctors and government execs in powerful positions railed against parents questioning vaccine safety and opposing “no exceptions” mandatory use of government recommended vaccines.

Gavi Chief Says Vaccine Hesitancy is “A Contagious Disease”

According to Reuters, Dr. Seth Berkley, founder of the International AIDS Vaccine Initiative, Inc. and current CEO of Gavi Vaccine Alliance,2 said that “misinformation” about vaccines was not a freedom of speech issue and called on companies hosting online social media platforms to remove the information. “I remind people that this kills people,” said Berkley.3
Agency France Presse (AFP) published a story entitled “Fight vaccine hesitancy as a ‘contagious disease,’ UN meeting told.” According to AFP, Dr. Berkley described the “growing anti-vaccine movement in richer nations” this way:
It’s a contagious disease,” Seth Berkley, who heads the GAVI Vaccine Alliance told AFP, warning that misinformation about vaccine safety “spreads at the speed of light.4
Before becoming the head of Gavi in 2011, Dr. Berkley worked for the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Rockefeller Foundation, the Carter Center and served on the Boards of Vaxinnate Corp, Napo Pharmaceuticals and Powderjet Pharmaceuticals.5 6 In 2016, he and other Gavi executives were criticized in an investigative media report in the United Kingdom for taking excessively high salary packages.7
On Oct. 16, 2018 at the World Health Summit in Berlin, he announced that 11 heads of the world’s leading health and development organizations had signed a “landmark commitment” to find news ways to accelerate achieving the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals. He related the UN’s broader sustainable development goals to Gavi’s goal of delivering vaccines to all children.8
Two months later, Dr. Berkley told CNN that “while measles is one of the few diseases we could potentially eradicate, that will never happen if wealthy countries like the United States can’t maintain herd immunity. Because a measles case anywhere is a threat everywhere.” He suggested that parents who don’t vaccinate their children are selfish. “In countries like the United States we need to stop thinking about vaccination as something you only do to protect the one you love, and instead view it also as a goodwill act for the benefit of others.9

U.S. Government, Gates Foundation Biggest Donors to Gavi & WHO

Gavi, the Vaccine Alliance is a public-private partnership established by the WHO and U.S. government with funding provided in 2000 by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation “to improve access to new and underused vaccines for children living in the world’s poorest countries.”10 Gavi serves as a multilateral funding mechanism for purchase and delivery of vaccines involving the WHO, governments, the vaccine industry, World Bank, philanthropic foundations and civil society groups.11
Since 2000, more than $15B has been raised by Gavi to vaccinate the world’s children. The U.S. government has contributed about $1.9B to Gavi and the Gates Foundation is the largest private donor.12
The U.S. government is the largest state member funder of WHO. The Gates Foundation is the largest non-state funder of the WHO, having donated more than $2B in earmarked grants to the international health agency since 1998. Because the Gates Foundation grant money is earmarked for specific programs, such as vaccine purchase, delivery and promotion, the Gates Foundation significantly influences the setting of WHO’s program priorities. 13

U.S. Health Secretary Targets ‘Social Media Conspiracy Groups’

At the vaccine promotion event co-sponsored by the U.S. government at the World Assembly Meeting in Geneva, AFP reported that former Eli Lilly executive and current U.S. Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar II, JD14 said, “In my country, social media conspiracy groups confuse well-meaning parents so they hesitate to get the recommended vaccinations.”
According to the Infectious Diseases Society of America (IDSA), Azar also highlighted “ongoing US investments aimed at boosting vaccination coverage globally,” such as technical assistance provided by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to support vaccination campaigns in low-income countries and research on new vaccines for Ebola and HIV funded by the National Institutes of Health (NIH).15

Vaccine “Misinformation” Breeds Distrust and Destabilization of Governments?

IDSA reported some speakers suggested that, “misinformation about vaccines can also breed mistrust of governments that are promoting vaccination. Such mistrust can destabilize governments with major global ramifications.” Canada’s Chief Public Health Officer Dr. Theresa Tam reportedly told attendees that public education must establish the status of vaccination as a “social norm,” ensuring that public discourse is not dominated by vaccine opponents.16

Unsafe Hospital Care: 134M Adverse Events & 2.6M Deaths

Despite the highly publicized vaccine promotion event demonizing parents pushing back against enforcement of one-size-fits-all vaccine policies and laws, the World Health Assembly attendees identified far more pressing global health problems like universal health coverage,17 anti-microbial resistance,18 non-communicable diseases,19 greater transparency for pricing of drugs and vaccines,20 and sanitation and patient safety.21
The World Health Assembly attendees recognized patient safety and reducing patient harm in healthcare settings as a key priority, and endorsed the establishment of an annual World Patient Safety Day, pointing out that:
Patient harm due to adverse events is one of the leading causes of death and disability globally. An estimated 134 million adverse events occur annually due to unsafe care are in hospitals in low and middle income countries, contributing to 2.6 million deaths, while 1 in 10 patients is estimated to be harmed while receiving hospital care in high income countries.22
An estimated 15 percent of patients in the world develop one or more infections during a hospital stay, with those living in low-income countries at greatest risk. Member states agreed to a new resolution to improve safe water, sanitation and hygiene in health facilities around the world to prevent the spread of infections and reduce maternal and newborn deaths. Reportedly, one in four healthcare facilities lacks basic water services and one in five have no sanitation services, which affects 2 billion people.

WHO Developing New Global Vaccine Action Plan

The WHO is the world’s largest and most influential public health agency with an annual budget for 2018-2019 of $4421.5M ($4.4 billion).23 The biggest individual programs funded by WHO have been for polio eradication vaccine campaigns ($903M); vaccine campaigns for other communicable diseases ($805M); and corporate services/enabling functions ($715.5M).
Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, PhD, who was Ethiopia’s Minister of Health and then Minister of Foreign Affairs before being elected WHO Director-General in 2017,24 told attendees at the World Health Assembly meeting in Geneva that, “WHO is working to ensure vaccines reach more countries than ever before. Vaccination is a right and a shared responsibility.”25
A new Global Vaccine Action Plan is being developed by WHO,26 which will be presented at the meeting of the World Health Assembly 2020.  Emphasis is being placed on integrating vaccination programs into wider national health systems to provide every child and adult in the world with vaccinations throughout life as part of a life-long primary healthcare plan.

Bill Gates, " Vaccinate to Depopulate": His Logic Explained

Bill Gates recently went on record at a TED conference declaring that his foundation's vaccine programs' goals were to reduce the poulation. This has led a lot of people to jump to the conclusion that he was saying his vaccines affect fertility. However, if you look at previous interviews on teh subject, you will see that it's not tat simple and that there is a lot of twisted logic involved. Bottom line: Gates is an admitted depopulationist. Would you trust his intentions when it comes to people's health? Prison Planet article on Gates, vaccines and depopulation with TED video embedded "The world today has 6.8 billion people. That's heading up to about nine billion. Now if we do a really great job on new vaccines, health care, reproductive health services, we could lower that by perhaps 10 or 15 percent!"

BETH MOORE SAYS CHRISTIAN MEN REFUSE FEMALE LEADERSHIP BECAUSE OF SINFUL PRIDE~MOORE PROMOTES CONTEMPLATIVE PRAYER

BETH MOORE SAYS CHRISTIAN MEN REFUSE FEMALE LEADERSHIP BECAUSE OF SINFUL PRIDE(Friday Church News Notes, May 31, 2019, www.wayoflife.org [email protected], 866-295-4143) – The following is excerpted from “Beth Moore Challenges Theologian,” ChristianHeadlines.com, May 14, 2019: “Prominent Southern Baptist Bible teacher Beth Moore has ignited a firestorm on Twitter after challenging a theologian who singled her out in a blog post for encouraging women to preach. Owen Strachan, associate professor of Christian theology at Midwestern Baptist Theological Seminary in Kansas City, Missouri, said in the May 7 post he was surprised that both Moore and SBC President J. D. Greear support ‘a woman teaching and preaching to the corporate body.’ He followed that up on Twitter the next day, saying, ‘One thing we [complementarians] have massive agreement on: women do not preach on Sunday to the church. Doing so is functional egalitarianism. We will not capitulate here.’ Complementarians embrace the Scriptural view that the role of men and women is distinct and complements one another within the home and church … Moore responded to Strachan with a series of tweets. ‘Owen, I am going to say this with as much respect & as much self-restraint as I can possibly muster. I would be terrified to be a woman you’d approve of. And I would have wasted 40 years of my life encouraging women to come to know and love Jesus through the study of Scripture. I am compelled to my bones by the Holy Spirit—I don’t want to be but I am—to draw attention to the sexism & misogyny that is rampant in segments of the SBC, cloaked by piety & bearing the stench of hypocrisy….’ She wrote, ‘I had the eye opening experience of my life in 2016. A fog cleared for me that was the most disturbing, terrifying thing I’d ever seen. All these years I’d given the benefit of the doubt that these men were the way they were because they were trying to be obedient to Scripture. … Then I realized it was not over Scripture at all. It was over sin. It was over power. It was over misogyny. Sexism. It was about arrogance. About protecting systems. It involved covering abuses & misuses of power. Shepherds guarding other shepherds instead of guarding the sheep.’ For Strachan and other complementarians, though, that path to serving is clearly defined in Scripture and is not negotiable. ‘For a woman to teach and preach to adult men is to defy God’s Word and God’s design,’ Strachan wrote in his blog post. ‘Elders must not allow such a sinful practice; to do so is to bring the church body into disobedience against God.’”
BETH MOORE’S PROMOTION OF CONTEMPLATIVE PRAYER (Friday Church News Notes, May 31, 2019, www.wayoflife.org [email protected], 866-295-4143) – Beth Moore’s contemplative prayer probably explains the “revelation” she describes in the previous report: that in 2016 her eyes were opened to see that men who refuse women preachers are sinfully proud. While it’s probably true that some men who are opposed to women preachers are proud, the rejection of women preachers and women church leaders is clearly taught in God’s Word and is therefore a doctrine of the Holy Spirit, the Bible’s Author. “Let the woman learn in silence with all subjection. But I suffer not a woman to teach, nor to usurp authority over the man, but to be in silence. For Adam was first formed, then Eve. And Adam was not deceived, but the woman being deceived was in the transgression” (1 Timothy 2:11-14). In rejecting this doctrine and attributing it to sin, Moore is communing with devils. Moore, a Southern Baptist who is influential with a broad spectrum of evangelical women, is very much on the contemplative bandwagon. She joined Richard Foster, Dallas Willard, and other contemplatives on theBe Still DVD, which was published in April 2008 by Fox Home Entertainment. Lighthouse Trails issued the following discerning warning: “In the DVD, there are countless enticements, references and comments that clearly show its affinity with contemplative spirituality. For instance, Richard Foster says that anyone can practice contemplative prayer and become a ‘portable sanctuary’ for God. This panentheistic view of God is very typical for contemplatives. … The underlying theme of the Be Still DVD is that we cannot truly know God or be intimate with Him without contemplative prayer and the state of silence that it produces. While the DVD is vague and lacking in actual instruction on word or phrase repetition (which lies at the heart of contemplative prayer), it is really quite misleading. What they don’t tell you in the DVD is that this state of stillness or silence is, for the most part, achieved through some method such as mantra-like meditation. THE PURPOSE OF THE DVD, IN ESSENCE, IS NOT TO INSTRUCT YOU IN CONTEMPLATIVE PRAYER BUT RATHER TO MAKE YOU AND YOUR FAMILY HUNGRY FOR IT. The DVD even promises that practicing the silence will heal your family problems. … THIS PROJECT IS AN INFOMERCIAL FOR CONTEMPLATIVE PRACTICE, and because of the huge advertising campaign that Fox Home Entertainment has launched, contemplative prayer could be potentially introduced into millions of homes around the world. [On the DVD Moore says], ‘… if we are not still before Him [God], we will never truly know to the depths of the marrow of our bones that He is God. There’s got to be a stillness’” (“Beth Moore Gives Thumbs Up,” lighthousetrailsresearch.com). In her book When Godly People Do Ungodly Things (2002), Moore recommends contemplative Roman Catholics Brother Lawrence and Brennan Manning. Of Manning she says that his contribution to our generation “may be a gift without parallel” (p. 72) and calls Manning’s Ragamuffin Gospel “one of the most remarkable books” (p. 290). She does not warn her readers that Manning never gives a clear testimony of salvation or a clear gospel in his writings, that he attended Catholic Mass regularly, that he believed it is wrong for churches to require that homosexuals repent before they can be members, that he promoted the use of mantras to create a thoughtless state of silent meditation, that he spent six months in isolation in a cave and spends eight days each year in silent retreat under the direction of a Dominican nun, that he promoted the dangerous practice of visualization, that he quoted approvingly from New Agers such as Beatrice Bruteau (who says, “We have realized ourselves as the Self that says only I AM … unlimited, absolute I AM”) and Matthew Fox (who says all religions lead to the same God), and that he believes in universal salvation, that everyone including Hitler will go to heaven. (For documentation see “A Biographical Catalog of Contemplative Mystics” in the book Contemplative Mysticism: A Powerful Ecumenical Glue, available from www.wayoflife.org.) Beth Moore is the blind leading the blind, and her vast popularity is clear evidence of the apostasy of the Southern Baptist Convention. 

IKEA TO HOIST RAINBOW FLAG AT STORES FOR PRIDE MONTH, SELL RAINBOW BAG TO BENEFIT HOMOSEXUAL ADVOCACY GROUP

IKEA TO HOIST RAINBOW FLAG AT STORES 
FOR PRIDE MONTH, SELL RAINBOW BAG TO BENEFIT 
HOMOSEXUAL ADVOCACY GROUP

The popular home furnishings chain IKEA has announced that it will be hoisting the rainbow flag at its stores nationwide beginning June 1 in observance of Pride Month, and will also sell rainbow reusable shopping bags that will benefit the homosexual advocacy group Human Rights Campaign Foundation (HRCF).
“We are excited to partner with the Human Rights Campaign Foundation for Pride Month,” Rafael Fantauzzi, company diversity and inclusion manager, said in a statement. “At IKEA, our culture is centered on the value of togetherness. We believe equality is a fundamental human right and that all homes are created equal.”
“To further show our commitment to equality and LGBTQ+ inclusion, on June 1, our co-workers will hoist the Pride Rainbow flag at all IKEA locations,” it outlined.
The shopping bags, which are a rainbow Kvanting version of the company’s customary blue frakta bags, will be sold for $3.99 with all proceeds going to HRCF and its youth and family homosexual advocacy programs.
“We invite all IKEA co-workers and customers to show their support for the rights of people of all sexual orientations and gender identities as we continue to press for a fully inclusive work environment and community,” IKEA further states on the UK version of its “diversity and inclusion” webpage.
The bag is currently for sale in the UK and Ireland, and flags were reportedly hoisted on May 17.
In its U.S. press release, the company lauded what it views as its various strides in regard to those who identify as homosexual or transgender, outlining that the company’s insurance plan offers benefits for homosexual workers and their household, and the “IKEA U.S. medical plan … covers a portion of gender confirmation counseling and surgery.”
IKEA also touted that 2019 marks the 25th year since it first ran a homosexual-themed advertisement, which it characterized as “groundbreaking.”
“The ad, which aired in 1994, was the first national TV spot to ever feature a gay couple — two men shopping together for a dining room table at an IKEA store,” the organization noted.
IKEA is among a number of companies that plan to celebrate homosexual and/or “transgender” pride in June. Gap has launched a “Love All Ways” campaign and will donate 15 percent of its proceeds from its pride collection to the UN Free & Equal initiative. Footwear companies Adidas, Reebok, Ugg and Nike have all announced their 2019 rainbow-themed collection, and mouthwash brand Listerine made its bottles rainbow stripes for the month of June.
Disney has also rolled out additional rainbow product, and Starbucks is selling a rainbow “love” tumbler for Pride Month. The sparkling water brand Bubly is additionally making available a “pride pack” with each can being a different color to represent the rainbow.
As previously reported, while a common theme among homosexual advocates is that they were “born this way,” the Bible teaches that all men are born with the Adamic sin nature, having various inherent inclinations that are contrary to the law of God and being utterly incapable of changing by themselves.
It is why Jesus outlined in John 3:5-7 that men must be regenerated by the second birth, or they cannot see the kingdom of Heaven.
“Jesus answered and said unto him, ‘Verily, verily, I say unto thee, except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.’
Nicodemus saith unto him, ‘How can a man be born when he is old? Can he enter the second time into his mother’s womb and be born?’
Jesus answered, ‘Verily, verily, I say unto thee, except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God. That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. Marvel not that I said unto thee, ‘Ye must be born again.’”
The gospel’s message, as stated in Matthew 1:21 and numerous other verses, is that “He (Jesus) shall save His people from their sins.” The Bible also explains in regard to the work of regeneration, “A new heart also will I give you, and a new spirit will I put within you, and I will take away the stony heart out of your flesh, and I will give you an heart of flesh. And I will put My Spirit within you, and cause you to walk in My statutes, and ye shall keep my judgments, and do them.”
In Mark 1:15, Jesus declared, “The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand. Repent ye, and believe the gospel.”

(The Christian Institute)  Netflix and Disney have threatened to remove their business from the state of Georgia after the governor signed into law a bill seeking to protect the unborn beginning at approximately six to eight weeks gestation.
Prior to the law being passed, fifty Hollywood actors, including Sean Penn, Alec Baldwin and Ben Stiller, called on production companies to boycott the state and said they would not work there if the law came into force.
Netflix’s Chief Content Officer Ted Sarandos warned that the entertainment giant would “rethink our entire investment” and fight the law alongside the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU).
The late preacher Leonard Ravenhill once said, “People say we have no king and queen in America. I say we have a king in America. His name is ‘sport,’ and his wife’s name is ‘entertainment.’ And I’m convinced … that entertainment is the devil’s substitute for joy.”
