    I remember back when ACLU lawyers got noticed by defending principle over other considerations. Now their only principles are the democratic party line. otherwise, they would be serving DC district courts with a box of writs every day demanding Jan6 accused people being held without bail be immediately released pending trials.

    • Elwood P. Dowd says:

      Some 500,000 Americans are in jail awaiting trial. Most cannot afford bail, and some because they are considered a continued threat. About 70 Jan 6 insurrectionists are being held without bail as being a danger.

      That leaves about 499,930 others for connies to worry about. Will they? LOL.

      Why would Methodist hospitals refuse to perform a surgery approved by patients, guardians and attending surgeons as good for the patient’s health? Religion?

      Recently right-wingers attacked Vanderbilt U Medical Center for performing gender-affirming surgeries. Gender-affirming surgical procedures involving patients younger than 18 are rare, Vanderbilt officials say. On average, the hospital schedules around five a year. None are genital procedures.

      • The esteemed Mr Dowd asked:

        Why would Methodist hospitals refuse to perform a surgery approved by patients, guardians and attending surgeons as good for the patient’s health? Religion?

        Possibly because their lawyers told them that, if the mentally ill patient later changes his mind, they might be sued into receivership? Or possibly because their insurance company informed them that they would not cover the hospital for malpractice over this type of procedure?

        I have no idea, though were I in charge of an insurance company, I would tell any medical care providers that I covered that we would not cover them for transgender procedures on minors.

        As for why Methodist hospitals might refuse? The Methodist church in the United States is already in schism, as the national powers-that-be have approved blessings for homosexual ‘marriages,’ but thousands of local churches and chapters are breaking away over this. Methodist hospitals would have, one would assume, Methodist boards of directors.

        And it isn’t just the Methodists; Christian denominations all over are breaking up because the liberals are just oh-so-sympathetic and tolerant of homosexuality, while those Christians who actually read the Bible and see it as the law of God state that it cannot be done; the declarations that homosexual activity is seriously sinful are not vague, but explicit.

        • Professor Hale says:

          Maybe because their oath as doctors says, First do no harm, and cutting away healthy tissue is by definition doing harm.

          Maybe because the jury is still out on the whole concept of the medical utility of gender re-assignment surgery. Lots of high risk complications. Poor long term outcomes. High chance of patient never achieving the outcome they were hoping for.

          Maybe because religious-based hospitals choose to use their limited resources on sick people instead of elective cosmetic surgeries.

          Lots of reasons to choose from.

            As I have informed Jeff. My literature indicates that these people are mentally ill. But surgeons will still operate on them. Jeff, is going to come in and say the psych. people don’t agree with my statement, but Jeff is very much unaware of the various aspects of such a statement.

            100% chance that the patient never achieves the hoped for outcome, because the hoped for outcome is to actually change from boy to girl or girl to boy, and that never happens, because it can’t happen. The most skillful surgeon in the world could ‘invert’ a penis into a facsimile of a vagina, but it won’t actually be a vagina. The vagina has characteristics that the skin of the penis does not, and will never have, because they are different kinds of tissue.

            The same is true with attempting to create a penis, or female breasts; no matter how skillful the surgeon, what is being created is a facsimile, perhaps a perfect looking facsimile, but it’s still not the real thing.

            A male-to-female transsexual must take an object, and ‘dilate’ his fake vagina every day, or it will attempt to close back together; he’s still a male biologically, and his male body is attempting to heal what it perceives as an open wound.

            And, in the end, even with the most perfect medical and surgical job that could be done, there’s still the difference between the ears. Someone like Bradley Manning, no matter how much he thinks he’s a girl, went through the first twenty-some years of his life as a boy, reared as a boy, with the experiences of growing up as a boy. He never grew up as a girl, and has only a crackpot boy’s idea of what a girl is supposed to be like, to feel.

        • Elwood P. Dowd says:

          Of course, here in the US of A the christian Bible’s ‘laws’ of god are not the law of the land.

          If christian orgs want to withdraw from American life, more power to them. Will they also refuse gov’t payments, tax breaks, medical resident programs from a government (nation) that accepts gays, abortion and same-sex marriage?

          Is homosexual behavior more sinful than adultery? The Old Testament would have gays killed, the New Testament not so much. And now you can curse your mother and father.

          Clearly the Ten Commandments have expired. Few, if any, so-called christians take them seriously any longer, even though Jesus did not release followers from obeying the Commandments. Perhaps our Jewish brothers and sisters still do.

          The Ten Commandments (Exodus 20:2-17 NKJV)
          1 “I am the Lord your God. … You shall have no other gods before Me.
          2 “You shall not make for yourself a carved image… etc
          3 “You shall not take the name of the Lord your God in vain.
          4 “Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy… etc
          5 “Honor your father and your mother…
          6 “You shall not murder.
          7 “You shall not commit adultery.
          8 “You shall not steal.
          9 “You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor.
          10 “You shall not covet your neighbor’s house, wife, male servant, female servant, ox, donkey, anything that is your neighbor’s.”

          Lying, stealing, adultery, working on the Sabbath, coveting, murdering, cursing ‘god’ are all commonplace.

          • Whenever the Minister from Missouri tells you what the Bible or the Church say, you would do well to check it yourself:

            Is homosexual behavior more sinful than adultery? The Old Testament would have gays killed, the New Testament not so much. And now you can curse your mother and father.

            Matthew, Chapter 5:

            17 Do not think that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets. I am not come to destroy, but to fulfill.

            18 For amen I say unto you, till heaven and earth pass, one jot, or one tittle shall not pass of the law, till all be fulfilled.

            19 He therefore that shall break one of these least commandments, and shall so teach men, shall be called the least in the kingdom of heaven. But he that shall do and teach, he shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven.

            The New Testament quite clearly states, in the Sermon on the Mount, that no bit of the law shall pass away, and that would include the punishments of the law.

            Mr Dowd asked if homosexual activity is more sinful than adultery, thinking that he has scored some sort of point, without realizing that both are sinful and condemned, and trying to figure out which one is more or less sinful is an exercise in human nitpicking, not divine judgement.

            This is why Mr Dowd is an agnostic, as I believe he defined himself: it is because, in the end, his vision is small, his thought short-sighted. To him, all such things must fit neatly into whatever niches and patterns his logic demands. But the divine is above mortal logic. It is not something you reason out for yourself, but something you simply come to know . . . if your mind is open enough to ask for the knowledge and experience.

            In the end, you either know that God exists, or you just don’t. I know, in a way I doubt Mr Dowd could ever really understand, that God exists. Mr Dowd has already told us that he does not know that, and thus it limits his judgement to the shallow, to the earthly, to whatever fad philosophy emerges from the left these days.

            I was fortunate enough to take a (far too short) trip to Jerusalem in November. Had Mr Dowd walked the same paths, the same streets I did, he would have experienced them far, far differently. Visiting the Church of the Holy Sepulcher, he would have said to himself, “There’s no way that anyone can actually know that that is really Golgotha, where Jesus was crucified,” — Golgotha is within the confines of the Church — and “That was just a tomb, cut in the rock, but there’s no way to know that Jesus was buried in that particular tomb.”

            Me? I know that there are things we don’t know, but I also know that, in the end, it doesn’t actually matter. This is where Jesus was, and if history and tradition and excavation might be off by a few feet or several yards, or even a mile, you can still feel what happened there. To Mr Dowd, that’s pretty much madness.

          • Elwood P. Dowd says:

            We’re pleased you derive sustenance, confidence and peace from your beliefs. But we disagree with that desire to impose your beliefs on others using the power of the state.

            Just because fundamentalist christians and Muslims think LGBTQ people deserve discrimination doesn’t support that it should be the law.

            But few take the 10 Commandments seriously, do they.

  6. Elwood P. Dowd says:

    That’s BS. The twit on tweeter actually claimed:

    Official figures quietly published by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC) confirm nearly half a million children and young adults have died ever since the Food & Drug Administration first granted emergency use authorisation to a Covid-19 vaccine in the USA.

    Nearly 500,000 children died from the jabs and the government hid that from the American patriot!!

    You would think the parents would have raised hell! Yet, no one spoke up. A mere 20 kids died at Sandy Hook and it was nonstop media for years. 500,000 die. Media crickets.

  7. david7134 says:

    Jeff presents himself as some authority on hospitals. Never admitted a patient, never scheduled or preformed surgery or obtained credentials for surgery, never helped a hospital formulate policy, has zero idea as to the nature of so called gender surgery, nor the psychology of the situation.

    I looked for any issues that are public on the hospitals decision and could find little, certainly nothing religious except for speculation by the ACLU which is known for lying.

    My experience would be that religion does not play a major role at a Methodist hospital. Concerns would be that these patients are excessively mentally unstable and preforming surgery that can not be reversed would not be wise. Payment would be a big issue. Expertise of the surgeons who intend to preform the surgery. The state of mental counseling. In other words many considerations and if Jeff holds forth as having any knowledge of the issue is hilarious.

    Did you hear the German authorities claim to have broken up a far-right wing coup attempt?

    Is this the opening salvo of the commie takeover of the globe, breaking up a group of peaceful but far-right German patriots? US authorities have already detained ultra-far-rightists accused of an attempted coup on Jan 6!!

    Domestic terrorists assert the recent attack on North Carolina’s infrastructure is just the beginning. Over 40,000 North Carolinians were left without power.

    Neo-Nazis Say Attack Leaving 40,000 Americans in Dark Is Only the Beginning</strong>

    Amid a long-running campaign by far-right communities threatening to attack the nation’s power grid, domestic extremists cheered when two still unattributed shootings at North Carolina substations plunged tens of thousands of people into darkness.

    Beyond celebration, however, their comments called for more, bigger attacks targeting critical infrastructure on U.S. soil. Experts told Newsweek that the attack in Moore County, North Carolina, as well as in similar previous attacks across the country, may only be the start of a more destructive campaign.

    The Moore County Sheriff’s Office has yet to establish a perpetrator or motive in the December 3 attack, but initial suspicion has centered on right-wing backlash toward a drag show set to be held that same day at the Sunrise Theater in the town of Southern Pines.

    That event inspired protests involving armed individuals clad in military gear and the participation of groups such as Moore County Citizens for Freedom, whose director, former U.S. Army psychological operations officer Emily Grace Rainey, was questioned by the Moore County Sheriff’s Office after the attack.

    Rainey, who was implicated in the January 6, 2021 storming of the Capitol by pro-President Donald Trump crowds seeking to overturn the presidential election, attributed the substation shootings to “God,” whom she said was “chastising Moore County” over the drag show.
