Altar girls, Communion in the hand, Eucharistic Ministers and "Protestant" music in the Church doesn't bother me at all. A proud American retired submarine sailor. Our borders should be secured with a 10 ft. high fence topped by concertina wire with minefields out to 20 yards on both sides and an additional 10 yards filled with warning signs outside of that Let's get energy independent NOW! Back Israel to the max, stop appeasing followers of the Pedophile Prophet. Pro 2nd Amendment, pro death penalty, Repeal all hate crime legislation. Back the police unless you'd rather call a hippie when everything hits the fan. Get government out of dealing with education, childhood obesity and the enviornment. Stop using the military for sociological experiments and if we're in a war don't micromanage their every move. Kill your television, limit time on the computer and pick up a book. God's will be done and may He have mercy upon us all.

So tell me again how there is no "gay agenda".

Because this sure as Hell fits the bill for one, except that it's their sympathizers leading the charge here.

CHEVY CHASE, Maryland, January 5, 2009 (LifeSiteNews.com) - An international medical organization has recommended that children as young as 12 who question their sexual identity should be given drugs to block the physical changes of puberty. (Dumb question; isn't questioning your sexual identity recognized as normal for kids?)

The New Scientist reports that the injunction comes as part of a set of guidelines, the first of its kind, published last month by the Endocrine Society. The “Guidelines For Health Organisations Commissioning Treatment Services For Trans People” call for healthcare administrators around the globe to provide full coverage for hormonal and cosmetic procedures sought by individuals identified as "transsexual."

The doctors project that relatively new puberty-blocking drugs could "buy time" for young teens who may later decide they are unsatisfied with their sex, and thereby avoid undergoing the bodily changes that belong to the sex that they are dissatisfied with. (Ya know, I didn't REALLY get interested in girls until those bodily changes happened. So is this a way to produce more homosexuals? I'm not buying into a grand conspiracy here, but it sure stinks.)

“We recommend that adolescents who fulfill eligibility and readiness criteria for gender reassignment initially undergo treatment to suppress pubertal development,” New Scientist quoted the guidelines as saying. (I recommend you keep yourself away from my kids. I've guns and know how to use 'em. This is NOT a joke!)

The document also noted that children under 16, who would normally need parental consent, ought to be allowed “treatment” against their parents' wishes, if they have been deemed "Gillick" competent by a clinician - referring to the 1985 court case Gillick v West Norfolk and Wisbeach which found that if a child is found to have adequate understanding the requirement of parental consent may be overcome. (So who ceritifies the clinician as knowing if the child has sufficent understanding? Another clinician and no parents need be involved?)

The recommendations rest upon the results of trials at a Netherlands clinic where puberty blockers have been administered to more than 70 children under sixteen, with one patient as young as 11. (The Netherlands, THAT paradise of the perverse!)

Currently Canada, Australia, Germany, and some clinics in the U.S. permit the puberty-blocking drugs. The effects of the drug are designed to wear off should the patient discontinue use, but the long-term effects of chemically delaying puberty are virtually unknown. (Why am I not surprised at that last?)

Peggy Cohen-Kettenis of the Free University of Amsterdam Medical Center, who helped write the new guidelines, acknowledged that "people are always afraid that it will be harmful for the children," (Imagine that. Someone has the best interests of the child at heart, what a concept!) but added that "what they never take into account is that it is also harmful to not give them this treatment." (How and according to who?) The document emphasizes that the goal for treatment of such individuals is "to obtain lasting personal comfort in terms of phenotype and gender role."

Dr. Russell Viner of the Institute of Child Health warned that early manipulation of natural development could tamper with a child's maturing self-perception. (This goes back to the point I tried making about not getting interested in girls until my voice cracked and other things changed.)

"The real question is: if you intervene early in a young person who would otherwise change their mind, do you reinforce their gender identity disorder? Do you remove the chance for change?" asked Viner.

Bioethicist Wesley Smith told LifeSiteNews.com that encouraging the use of untested chemicals that interfere with normal biological development treads a dangerous line. "Do we know what the impact of such heavy hormonal interference will be on the health of these young people?" he asked. "If not, doesn’t this border on unethical human experimentation?" (Well Hell, we're already murdering them in the womb. What's treating kids like lab rats count for after that one?)

Good God Almighty, where does it end?

Slowly they are taking away all parental rights and replacing the State as the parent. We will see one totally screwed up world where scientist place themselves above God and tinker with the minds and bodies of our children.

Perhaps they want to make the entire world Gay.

oh great, so now instead of having to wait till boys are at least 30 before they behave like grown ups...we're gonna DELAY their development and have 50 year olds acting like children. F.U.N....

This only goes to prove that 2nd cousins shouldn't marry. Obvously the moron who thought (hmmm, gotta think on that) this up was the offspring of multiple 2nd cousin marriages!

MM ref: you first comment, I am offended, I represent that remark only ABNMOMMA might say 40,45, uh, well maybe 50. Aw shucks I ain't never gonna grow up!!!
