Anyway, I point out that it's not that Reparative Therapy has never been tried, just that it's never been successful, over at TownHall.com. This isn't really my fight, it is about Sexual Orientation, not Gender Identity or Intersex conditions. But most people don't see the difference, and just because I'm not a Patagonian, Gay, or Taoist doesn't mean to say I should let ignorant persecution of Patagonians, Gays, or Taoists go unchallenged.
Over at the Greeley Tribune, I expound on the inhuman murder of Angie Zapata.
Let's look at the facts -Many of the other comments are what I would expect around 1920 if a teenager "passing for white" was brutally slain. Transsexuality - the new Black.
We have a professional criminal's confession.
He sexually assaulted a girl belonging to a persecuted minority group by grabbing her crotch.
He bashed the girl's head in.
He covered up the body while deliberately removing evidence of the crime
When the critically injured victim started moving, he deliberately finished her off
He stole the victim's car.
He stole and used the victim's credit card.
He stole other property of the victim which hasn't been recovered.
Now with those facts alone... how could anyone doubt that he'd be convicted of Murder in the First Degree?
Now suppose he was claiming that she duped him - he didn't know she was Jewish when he allowed her to bring him off. Hmmm, that just adds "hate crime" to the list, it's not an excuse.
Or suppose he was claiming that she duped him - he didn't know she was only "passing" for white. That excuse wouldn't work either.
Ah, but a Tranny! Oh well, murder was going a bit far...
Over at Night Whispering, there's a blog who's having the same problems with blocking as I am. Hopefully my comment will have appeared by the time this post does, I've had a most delightful e-mail from the author. He's the type of pastor who gives Christianity a good name, and I urge anyone who thinks all those with doctrinal differences are bigoted to read his blog, and comment with respect and politeness. If you disagree, merely state your case rationally, and he may not agree, but he will listen, and reply. You should do the same for what he says too. Listen, with the thought in the back of your mind that you may be wrong. That's what he does. He also tries to help, it's not all talk.
More over at ABC News, where a large section of opinion is that transsexuals are not worthy of being classed as fully human, with equal human rights.
