Sex Change Operations for 10 Year Olds?

Wednesday, April 23rd, 2008

We don’t believe that 10 year old kids are mature enough to vote or hold jobs, yet they are mature enough to have a sex change…….our world is beyond messed up.

Children’s Hospital Boston, a world-renowned center for pediatric healthcare, is being criticized by a Massachusetts-based pro-family group for offering sex-change operations to patients as young as ten years old.
The Boston Globe recently published an article on Dr. Norman Spack, who last year started a new clinic at Children’s Hospital that, among other treatments, performs sex changes on “transgendered” children. The Gender Management Service Clinic, as it is called, defines that group as “patients with no known anatomic or biochemical disorder who feel like a member of the opposite sex.”

In the Globe article, Spack details how he prescribes hormone therapy to halt puberty in children as young as ten years old, and then uses further hormone therapy to change children to the sex of their desire. Spack also lauds how he changed one transgendered child who was “destined to be a 6-foot-4 male” into a 5-foot-10 girl.

Brian Camenker heads MassResistance, a pro-family organization based in Massachusetts. He laments what the future may hold.

“Just the idea that they would do this to innocent, confused, and vulnerable children — it’s beyond the pale. But I don’t think that we’ve seen the end,” says Camenker. “This isn’t the end of the line; this is going to get worse unless people are willing to step up to the plate and stop it. And it’s going to get to a point where it’ll start happening a lot. This is just the beginning, I think.”

Law Protects Student Opposition to ‘Day of Silence’

Wednesday, April 23rd, 2008

The Day of Silence is an allegedly student-led event designed to highlight purported suffering of homosexual students. Throughout the day, students who participate in the protest refuse to talk, even when teachers or administrators ask them to respond to questions.

“Number one, if students will not speak up in these classes when they’re called upon, that’s disruptive — and they [the schools] don’t have to tolerate students who will not speak because of the Day of Silence,” [Matt Staver of Liberty Counsel] suggests. “Number two: Schools can require parental permission to participate in any clubs, including these ‘Gay-Straight Alliance’ clubs — most parents won’t allow their children to participate in these clubs.”

Staver contends that schools across the country may be breaking the law by allowing students to participate in the pro-homosexual event. He notes that roughly half of the states require that if “sexuality is taught or discussed, it has to be done from an abstinence-based perspective.” And he points out that “schools would be, literally, violating the law, if these [homosexual] clubs on campus discuss [any type of] sexual activity ….”

UNIFIL Finds Hezbollah Arms; Gunmen Scatter Peacekeepers

Wednesday, April 23rd, 2008

The pathetic “peacekeeping” force from the U.N., who are charged with intercepting the arms being smuggled to the Hezbollah terrorist, are as ineffective as ever.

Armed Hezbollah militants warded off members of the United Nations Interim Force in Lebanon (UNIFIL) last month when the peacekeepers discovered a truck carrying weapons and ammunition belonging to the Lebanon-based guerilla group.

The incident was referred to briefly in a semi-yearly report submitted to the UN Security Council by UN Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon. The incident was the first time that UNIFIL forces were confronted by armed Hezbollah men south of Lebanon’s Litani River, an area which Security Council resolution 1701 prohibits Hezbollah from entering.

According to a government source in Jerusalem, the incident caused great embarrassment for UNIFIL. The source described the incident, explaining that UNIFIL troops on patrol discovered the truck and chased it down and pulled it over. When the UNIFIL troops approached the vehicle, the source said, armed Hezbollah men exited the truck and threatened the troops at gunpoint. The UNIFIL patrol then went back into their cars, according to the source, and returned to their base.

The report submitted to the Security Council said the incident occurred on the night between the 30 and 31 of March. “This serious violation of the UN resolution raises concerns,” the report said.

The incident was not reported in the media at the time of its occurrence.
