Genesis 1:26,27 ‘And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.
27 So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.’
Why all this recent gender questioning? Could it be open rebellion against the Creator God? What will be the result of all this gender changing in twenty or less years? God’s answer to all one’s burdens is in Matthew 11:28-30 ‘Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. 29 Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. 30 For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light’ and accepting the truth of Psalm 139:14 ‘I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvellous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well.’
This is from David and Roslyn Phillips of Family Voice Australia’s Voxpoint, August, 2016. “Is the Census – not to mention SBS – politically biased? You be the judge! An SBS TV journalist phoned FamilyVoice recently, wanting to interview us about the 2016 Census question on gender. In previous years, the Census has asked Australians whether they were male or female. But in 2016, we have been given three choices: male, female or “other”. “What do you think of this change?” the SBS journalist asked us. We replied promptly, with full references – saying (in part): The three gender options in the Census – “male”, “female” or “other” – officially endorse the unproven view that humans can have a sex different from that of the chromosomes in every cell of their body. When a boy, with male genitals and other sex characteristics, says he feels he is a girl, he is said to suffer from gender dysphoria. Gender dysphoria is not a condition he was born with. Research shows that identical twins may include one twin with gender dysphoria and the other without, even though each twin has the exactly the same genes and hormone exposure in the womb. Life experiences – including bullying by peers or older siblings, or mental illness in a parent, may contribute to this condition. Studies show that the vast majority of children with these feelings lose them before reaching adulthood. Encouraging irreversible interventions in childhood could be harmful. Gender dysphoria is similar to body integrity identity disorder, where a person feels uncomfortable with one of his or her healthy limbs, and seeks to have it amputated. Like gender identity disorder, body integrity identity disorder is a condition of the mind. It should be treated with compassion, but like other identity confusion issues, should not be affirmed. Gender dysphoria should not be given official endorsement in a Census question. But this compassionate, evidence-based answer was not what the SBS was looking for. A few days later the journalist got back to us, saying they no longer wanted an interview. They had decided to take a “slightly different angle”, she said, but declined to tell us what that angle was. Perhaps we did not fit the “bigot” image SBS was hoping to portray. Not long after this knock-back, The Australian (20/7/16) and other media revealed the irony that girls at Cheltenham Girls High School in northwest Sydney were no longer allowed to be called “girls”. At a staff meeting called to discuss the implementation of the controversial “Safe Schools” program, teachers were told they could be breaking the law if they did not support decisions of LGBTI (Lesbian Gay Bisexual Transgender Intersex) students. Terms such as “girls”, “ladies” and “women” were to be replaced by gender-neutral language. Daily Telegraph columnist Miranda Devine commented (19/7/16, in part): “This is presented as a way to make a small minority of LGBTI students feel comfortable, but its insidious effect is to impose a transformation of the traditional view of male and female. “We are told that it is bigotry to have a ‘hetero-normative’ view of gender as binary — male or female — or to believe that heterosexual attraction is the norm. But children who don’t go along with the illogical sexual and gender fluidity agenda are finding themselves excluded.” Miranda quoted Joe Carolan, a former maths teacher at Wollongong High School of the Performing Arts, another “Safe School”. He quit his job in protest at the program, saying the banning of “hetero-normative” language such as “mum and dad” is just the start. “The whole program is marketed as being about creating safe schools but it’s creating the opposite,” he said. “It’s promoting extreme gender ideology that’s harmful to students in adolescence who are already going through issues and this is complicating things a lot more.” Cheltenham Girls High has a significant number of Asian students whose parents have been deeply upset by the ostracism and bullying of those who disagree with the “Safe Schools” agenda. Chinese concern about “Safe Schools” is believed to be a key reason why two inner-west Sydney electorates with many Chinese constituents re-elected Liberal MPs, while nearby seats went to Labor. Labor had fully endorsed “Safe Schools”, promising to increase federal funding. By contrast, the Coalition announced significant restrictions, including a requirement for parental consent. Education minister Birmingham said funding would cease when the contract signed by Labor in June 2013 ended next year. But the evidence of harm is already so great that the program and its funding should be cancelled immediately.”

No wonder the mental health of young people is so fragile. The politicians and teachers are pushing this issue of gender identity so much that if it continues who knows what the future generation of young people will be like!? This gender identity issue is at the forefront of the homosexual’s agenda and it is being pushed right into the classroom via the so-called Safe Schools Program.
At the Safe Schools web site a teacher may read “Making your classroom safe and inclusive for LGBTI students: three top tips!”
Here there are ” three recommended tips for teachers to use in their classrooms to make them more inclusive for same sex attracted, gender diverse and intersex young people.” Are you ready? Here are the 3 tips.
1 Challenge all homophobic or transphobic language and behaviours
For instance “Transphobic language, such as ‘he-she’ and ‘tranny’ should be addressed as inappropriate immediately. Transphobic behaviour can also involve questioning someone’s gender identity. Asking someone if they are a girl or a boy or claiming that they are not a girl or a boy can be deeply distressing for someone who is gender diverse or not conforming to gender stereotypes. Providing an explanation that a person’s gender identity is defined by them and that it isn’t respectful to question someone’s gender identity would be an appropriate response.” Does gender have anything to do with the body’s plumbing? It is hard today sometimes to tell if a person is a boy or girl by the way they dress but that doesn’t mean they are not one or the other!
2 Give positive examples of sexual diversity, gender diversity and physical diversity
For example “A maths problem that poses David and his boyfriend Tuan ordering three pizzas that need to be evenly sliced to feed them and their six friends for example, demonstrates the way some less heteronormative thinking can result in some inclusive examples. Even if a problem like this raises questions from the class about sexuality, students can be told that some boys have boyfriends and that’s okay and then redirected to answer the question in a casual way that normalises the inclusive content.” HETRONORMATIVE THINKING! How many times have you ordered pizza thinking it had anything to with gender identity? These people are certainly thinking outside the box! Way outside!!!
Also “Economics classes could investigate the impact of the Sydney Mardi Gras on the local economy. There are an increasing number of English texts with characters that have diverse sexual and gender identities and there is a vast array of relevant media issues that can be studied. The list goes on and on and is only limited by the teacher’s ingenuity when making connections with national learning standards!”
3 Take the pressure off gender
For example “Getting students to line up in girls and boys lines and dividing project groups along gender lines are just two examples of unnecessary gendering that can cause significant distress to gender diverse students who don’t experience their gender as either male or female or who are not supported to be with the group that aligns with their gender identity.” More of this gender identity non-sense may be read at http://www.safeschoolscoalition.org.au/making-your-classroom-safe-and-inclusive-for-lgbti-students-three-top-tips-1
Hey, I know, I am an old fuddy duddy but all this gender identity issue (non-sense) is simply building a psychiatrist’s patient list! If this questioning of one’s gender continues who knows what a person might be able to identify as! Already there is the “non-binary” identity. The list is gathering so many letters an A4 page will not be able to contain it. Simply put, this whole issue is anti-God. God clearly says in both Testaments that we are either born a male or a female! This is not hate speech but simply the truth. Look at your body’s plumbing and that is what you are no matter what your thoughts may be or what someone is telling you! Going down this road of questioning one’s gender is going to lead to more mental and emotional problems. Is it too late to save these young people who are being exposed to this non-sense? No, there is always hope for there is a God Who said He “…so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”
Almost everyone has been confronted by a bully. However, the Safe Schools programme is not just about bullying but about the LGBTQ agenda. Yes, bullying should not be allowed but there are programmes that deal with bullying without pushing the LGBTQ agenda. May those in authority wake up to the real agenda this Safe Schools programme is promoting and cease its funding!
“Get that idea out of your head right now,” one attendee of the April 3 event told The FAMiLY LEADER. “There were only two sessions [among more than 20] that had anything to do with bullying. It’s a conference teaching kids how to: how to be confidently homosexual, how to pleasure their gay partners – one session even taught transsexual girls how to sew fake testicles into their underwear in order to pass themselves off as boys.”
That was from an article at: http://www.thefamilyleader.com/governors-conference-on-lgbtq-youth-not-what-you-think/ Safe Schools is here in Australia as well and their agenda is the same as that which The Family Leader article speaks about. Note those institutions that funded this conference and do what you can to let them know your disgust. One way to show them your disgust is in their hip pocket. Safe Schools is not about Safe Schools but it is about pushing the LGBTIQ agenda on your children and grandchildren. But you say what can I do? One thing is contact The Family Leader and ask them for suggestions. You may Contact The FAMiLY LEADER at firstname.lastname@example.org.
