Mayor Pete’s LGBTQ agenda if elected president

In case you thought that President Buttigieg wasn’t going to compel embrace of the entire “LGBTQ” agenda on the nation “just because” he has a “husband,” this 17-page list (!) of executive, legislative, and judicial goals will divest you of your naivete. It will be “All Gay” and “All Trans” 24/7 with his administration. Of course, top of the list is the passing of the Get-the-Transphobic-and-Homophobic-Bigots “Equality Act.” And oh so much more.

Prepare to lose your free speech and free exercise of religion in every venue of human existence, including in your home with your own children. The White House and Executive Branch will become the main propaganda outlet and enforcer arm for the SPLC and HRC — as if the MSM, academia, and the entertainment industry is not already enough. Even apart from draconian policy commitments, every SOTU address (and nearly all other speeches), indeed, every public appearance of the President with his “husband” will become an occasion for attacking your views as virulent bigotry that must be stamped out as the moral equivalent of extreme racism.

I suppose that we should thank Buttigieg for disclosing in detail all the terrible things that a Dem President could do to us, our spouses, and most of all our children, grandchildren, and all future generations. But remember, boys and girls, zes and zirs and everything in between, the reelection of Trump poses the greatest danger to the country and to the church (kindly remove tongue from cheek).

I’m in the process of going through the list but here are some starters:

(1) “End ‘conversion therapy’ nationwide.” No one will be able to provide counseling for “trans”-identified or “gay”-identified persons that affirms the client’s wish not to live a trans- or homosexually active life.

Remember that draconian California bill that was at the last moment withdrawn, that would put at risk even pastors who counseled people out of a “gay” or “trans” life, if an exchange of funds was involved, including the sale of literature? Well, Buttigieg wants such a law to be passed nationally. “Pete will work to pass the Therapeutic Fraud Prevention Act, which will require the Federal Trade Commission to . . . prohibit, ‘conversion therapy’ as consumer fraud, and end the dangerous practice across the country.”

Be aware that in the California bill, “conversion therapy” included any attempt to change the behavior (not just impulses and feelings) associated with the “gay” or “transgender” life. Publishers will not be able to sell books critical of “LGBTQ+” thinking and behavior because, by the definition of such a bill, any attempt to “change” this mantra will be treated as an act of “consumer fraud.” The same applies to any conference that charges a fee for attending, church-related or otherwise.

(2) Regarding “LGBTQ” students:

(a) “Empower the Office of Civil Rights at the federal Department of Education to . . . investigate complaints of discrimination by LGBTQ+ students and families. . . . Reverse the backsliding under the Trump administration, and make sure LGBTQ+ civil rights cases, and in particular, increase efforts to protect transgender students.” Translation: Have the federal government breathing down the necks of every school in the country to promote celebration of the “trans” and “gay” life. Any criticism or even questioning will lead to the full weight of the federal government dropping on the alleged offender.

(b) “Support the Student Nondiscrimination Act and the Safe Schools Improvement Act, and correctly interpret Title IX to include protection of transgender students.” No teacher in the country will be able to stop a male from entering female bathrooms, locker rooms, showers, and sports program. All he has to do is say, “I currently identify as a woman.”

(c) Provide federal funding for (i) all states to impose “training programs” on all teachers, who will be held responsible for stopping any “lack of acceptance” of “LGBTQ+” students; (ii) for school mental and physical “health centers” and staffing to promote full acceptance of the trans and gay life (since any criticism would damage their mental health); (iii) developing “LGBTQ+ inclusive” curricula “such as including LGBTQ+ people in history curricula.”

(d) “Require every school across the country to teach [pro-LGBTQ+] Mental Health First Aid courses.”

More to come as time permits.

In addition, consider what has happened in other nations with regard to the LGBTQ agenda. For example, see the following article: “Switzerland votes to make ‘homophobia’ a crime punishable by up to THREE years in prison“. Could something like this ever happen in the US? Ultimately it’s up to voters to decide. Ultimately it’s up to voters to vote for people they want to represent them.

And keep in mind all of the above as well as consider articles like “Understanding why religious conservatives would vote for Trump” whenever others criticize conservative Christians for voting for Trump even though Trump has a blunderbuss for a personality and even though he’s an immoral person in many ways. For one thing, there’s far more at stake than just Trump as a person: the bigger picture is it’s about stopping the liberal-progressive juggernaut that’s attempting to steamroll our political and religious liberties.
