Obama Appoints “Transgender” as Latest Homosexual Nominee

President Barack Obama has achieved another “first” for homosexual advocates by nominating a “transgender” man to a post in the Commerce Department.

Amanda Simpson was tapped by the President to the post of Senior Technical Adviser in the Commerce Department. Amanda, formerly known as Mitchell, is a man who worked for Raytheon Missile Systems in Arizona, during which time he made the transition from “male” to “female.”

"I’m truly honored to have received this appointment and am eager and excited about this opportunity that is before me," Simpson announced in a statement. "As one of the first transgender presidential appointees to the federal government, I hope that I will soon be one of hundreds, and that this appointment opens future opportunities for many others."

Simpson was a major homosexual activist and member of the board of directors for National Center for Transgender Equality. During his time at Raytheon, where he rose to the position of Deputy Director in Advanced Technology Development, he successfully added “sexual identity” to Raytheon’s equal employment opportunity policies.

In remarks later given to ABCNews.com, Simpson said "being the first sucks," because he feared that his sexual identity rather than personal merits would be credited for his obtaining the job.

The President has made no secret of his desire to nominate high-profile homosexuals to positions in the Executive Branch. However many homosexual advocates have criticized Obama for trying to appease them by nominating homosexuals to influential positions, rather than aggressively pushing their legislative issues. But pro-family advocates see the selection of Simpson as another step to normalizing homosexuality in the United States.

Another of Obama’s homosexual appointees is Kevin Jennings, deputy assistant to the Office of Safe Schools in the Department of Education, who was the former executive director of the Gay, Lesbian, and Straight Education Network (GLSEN). Jennings has come under fire from pro-family groups for GLSEN’s promotion of a pornographic reading list for youth grades 7-12, which the group had deemed "age-appropriate," and for the infamous “fist-gate” scandals, where sexually violent practices were taught to Boston youth at a GLSEN conference. Both occurred during his tenure as executive director.

"It’s always the incremental change that keeps moving forward and keeps getting more radical," Peter LaBarbera of Americans for Truth about Homosexuality told Focus on the Family’s Citizenlink . It’s hard for the American people to keep up."

"We should consider what transgender activism is about," LaBarbera said, "which is essentially recognizing civil rights based on gender confusion."

    The rest of the story…

    This is a symptom of the problem, not the problem. The problem is our turning away from God by systematically rejecting him throughout our society. We have been told a lie and instead of seeing a lie for what it is, we have believed it. We have been told we are more important than God, that we are gods… we believed it. We were told we are evolved from animals and nothing more than animals… we believed it. We were told God is not reality but a fantasy… we believed it. We have been told our self worth is determined by our contribution to society and not our relationship to God… we believed it. We have been told babies in the womb are not people and so can be killed… we believed it. We were told there is no Truth only what we decide as truth and so we can set our own standards for everything we do including sexual behavior… we believed it. We have been told our elected officials can be good and honest politicians despite their unethical and immoral personal lives… we believed it (and elected them all). So the list goes on, and the lies go on… and our disconnect from God and Truth goes on. So now we suffer and will suffer so much more than anyone wants to “believe”. Because we have made our foes the head, because in our rebellion of God we have believed a lie, because we are wandering like blind men in the darkness of deceptions. Our only hope is not this political persuasion or that political strategy, it is our return to God, to Christ, to obedience to His ethical and moral principals – with that we will have direction, we will have knowledge, we will have the wisdom to be led out of the valley of captivity and death onto the mountain top we once enjoyed.

    Lamentations 1:

    5 Her foes have become the masters, her enemies prosper, because the Lord has made her suffer for the multitude of her transgressions; her children have gone away, captives before the foe. 6 From daughter Zion has departed all her majesty. Her princes have become like stags that find no pasture; they fled without strength before the pursuer. 7 Jerusalem remembers, in the days of her affliction and wandering, all the precious things that were hers in days of old. When her people fell into the hand of the foe, and there was no one to help her, the foe looked on mocking over her downfall. 8 Jerusalem sinned grievously, so she has become a mockery; all who honored her despise her, for they have seen her nakedness; she herself groans, and turns her face away. 9 Her uncleanness was in her skirts; she took no thought of her future; her downfall was appalling, with none to comfort her. “O Lord, look at my affliction, for the enemy has triumphed!” 10 Enemies have stretched out their hands over all her precious things; she has even seen the nations invade her sanctuary, those whom you forbade to enter your congregation. 11 All her people groan as they search for bread; they trade their treasures for food to revive their strength. Look, O Lord, and see how worthless I have become.
