    Following several years of “constructive dialog” with the LGBT community, the U.S. Justice Department is now training law enforcement officers on how to better understand and help the “transgender community.” “It’s clear that such training is as necessary as it is overdue,” Associate Attorney General Tony West told a gathering at the Justice Department on Thursday, as DOJ’s Community Relations Service kicked off its new “transgender law enforcement cultural professionalism training.” The training will help law enforcement agencies “improve their understanding of the transgender communities they serve and improve their work with those communities,” said Deputy Assistant Attorney General James...

    ANN ARBOR, MI – U.S. Army Lieutenant General (Ret.) William "Jerry" Boykin, in a recent World Net Daily radio interview, confirmed that people with high security clearances connected to the Muslim Brotherhood hold important positions in every major federal agency including the Pentagon and the Department of Defense. The Muslim Brotherhood is a radical Islamist organization that has vowed the destruction of America from within".
  • USDA gay-sensitivity training seeks larger audience

    U.S. Department of Agriculture activists want to impose their intense brand of homosexual sensitivity training government-wide, including a discussion that compares “heterosexism” — believing marriage can only can be between one man and one woman — to racism. If accepted by the Obama administration, that move could mean more sessions for military service members already undergoing gay-sensitivity indoctrination. Critics fear additional gay-oriented training would be an unnecessary added burden for combat troops and encourage some to leave. USDA officials have asked the Office of Personnel Management (OPM), which oversees all federal worker policies, to impose its gay-awareness programs on all...

    In the Ground Zero mosque debate, de fenders of Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf have pointed out that in 2003 the FBI brought him in to help train its agents -- so how radical could he be? The first problem is that Rauf's "help" turned out to be worse than worthless. The bigger problem is that the FBI has a rotten record when it comes to identifying moderate Muslims -- as opposed to ones who are happy to feed non-Muslims the pabulum they're willing to swallow. Start with Rauf and the FBI. He was brought into the New York field office...

    It's a good thing to be aware of other people who are different from you, but it's another thing when politically correct "diversity training" runs amok. That's what happened at Arizona State University. Ryan Visconti, a 22-year-old senior and dormitory resident assistant, took part in mandatory sensitivity training for dorm employees. In a role-playing exercise, he was asked to portray a gay Hispanic seeking admission to a church. A woman with a Southern accent told him he was a hopeless sinner and would go to hell and could never join the church no matter what he did. In the course...

    Just when you thought the Anti-Defamation League couldn't conceivably get any worse, comes the news that the ADL has effectively joined the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) to bash Dennis Prager, a popular Jewish author, speaker and talk show host. In a November 29th column, posted at Townhall.com, Prager criticized Keith Ellison, D-Minn., the first Muslim elected to Congress, for declaring he'll bring the Koran with him to his swearing-in ceremony. Prager's calls this "the narcissism of multiculturalism." The author of several best-selling books on Judaism and a member of the United States Holocaust Memorial Council, Prager notes that...

[To read column, go to www.rffm.org and click on above title] What amazed me was the deafening silence I heard after writing the piece that included some graphic descriptions of what homosexuals do. Now, I am not so big-headed to think the world should stop turning because I wrote a column, but I usually receive a fair amount of feedback--good, bad or indifferent--regarding the subjects I write...

    Is hate a disease? Some psychiatrists think so. This was the subject of a recent Washington Post article, entitled “Psychiatry Ponders Whether Extreme Bias Can Be an Illness.” The title suggests the ominous implications. The Post explains, “Mental health practitioners say they regularly confront extreme forms of racism, homophobia and other prejudice in the course of therapy, and that some patients are disabled by these beliefs. As doctors increasingly weigh the effects of race and culture on mental illness, some are asking whether pathological bias ought to be an official psychiatric diagnosis.” In short, several psychiatrists are now pushing for...

    The police chief of New Orleans today backed off plans to pay $15,000 to a Nation of Islam leader to give "sensitivity training" to the cities police officers after criticism from local religious leaders. While Chief Eddie Compass initially announced the plan as he sat next to controversial Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan, whose fiery sermons and pronouncements have been criticized as racist and anti-Semitic, the city's top cop is now distancing himself from the controversial leader. Compass argued the Nation of Islam's security chief, Capt. Dennis Muhammad, had successfully implemented the program in other cities, including Buffalo, reported...

    You probably heard about the case of Brian Nichols, the violent rapist, who murdered one cop, a judge and a court stenographer and shot in the face another deputy in a dramatic break from custody in Atlanta. It was a big story. It was a big shock to everyone that a prisoner of his reputation could pull off a stunt like this resulting in the deaths of three – and probably a fourth person, a Customs agent, found dead in his wake the next day. It shouldn't be a shock. It was all quite predictable because of what sounds like...

    Toronto — All current and future Toronto police officers will be given gay and lesbian sensitivity training under an unprecedented settlement of litigation that erupted after a controversial bathhouse raid in 2000. The Toronto Police Service will also pay $350,000 to a group of lesbian complainants, The Globe and Mail has learned. The money will go toward specific charities and to cover legal fees. The unique settlement ends one of the most controversial events in the fitful history of relations between Toronto police and the city's thriving gay community. Under the deal, everyone on the 7,260-member force -- from rookie...

In it's 37-page report released Tuesday, the panel suggested naming a vice president for diversity and equity whose...

    I would like to take this opportunity to personally thank Gov. Davis and the Democratic-controlled state legislature in California for forcing decent, hardworking, traditional Christian families like ours out of the state-regulated foster care system. By recently signing a bill (AB 458) that would require all foster care parents to enlist in state-mandated transsexual, homosexual, bisexual “sensitivity training” instruction, the legislature has collectively singled out and offended, quite possibly, many more households than they may have bargained for. Cutting through the spin, the purpose of the bill is to indoctrinate prospective foster parent applicants and current foster caretakers into how...

California Democratic Assemblywoman Judy Chu The bill's sponsor, Democrat Judy Chu of Monterey Park, said AB 458 makes it "clear that it is unacceptable to insult, to assault, to do some name calling against a foster child," the Associated Press reported.

Sacramento - Controversial legislation to teach homosexuality throughout the foster care system has been introduced in the California State Legislature. AB 2651 by Democrat Assemblywoman Judy Chu of Monterey Park would indoctrinate foster children to embrace and experiment with homosexual behavior.

AB 2651 also prohibits foster care staff from choosing not...
