Pro-LGBT group launches campaign asking Christians to raise money for gender transition surgeries

An organization is launching a campaign asking Christians to donate money to help transgender people pay for surgeries related to their gender transition as a form of reparations for past discrimination.

Faithfully LGBT, a group that seeks to share the stories of LGBT people of faith, is raising funds for the transgender community through a campaign called #TitheTrans.

“There needs to be tangible ways that progressive Christians, who disagree with anti-trans theology, give to the transgender community,” says Eliel Cruz, founder of the organization. “I want Tithe Trans to be a way for Christians to begin to pay reparations for the damage we have caused,” he added.

The group noted that transition surgeries can cost anywhere between $10,000 and $90,000. About 20 percent of transgender individuals do not have any form of health insurance, and many insurance companies do not provide coverage for procedures related to gender transition, according to NewNowNext.

“Christians have disparaged the bodies of trans people, which has contributed to a culture of violence against them,” a statement from the Tithe Trans fundraising site read.

“From promoting anti-trans bathroom legislation to theology that has lead to suicides and homelessness.For those Christians who have seen this violence and have been horrified by it, it’s time to put your tithe money where your beliefs are,” it continued.

According to a news release published on the group’s website, the money collected by the campaign will be directed to the Jim Collins Foundation, a nonprofit organization that raises funds to provide grants to cover gender transition surgeries. Applications for grants are reviewed by a board of trans activists, who provides as many grants as the organization’s funds allow.

A fundraising goal of $10,000 has been set by the organizers, and while the campaign is directed at Christians, others are also allowed to donate. The organizers are hoping to surpass its fundraising goal, but, as of Sept, 9, the campaign has only raised $512.

The hashtag #FaithfullyLGBT was first used by Cruz when he was sharing his column of the same name at Religion News Service in 2015. Since then, others have used it to create visibility for the intersection of their faith and their sexuality.

In January 2016, Cruz launched a photo campaign highlighting the faces of LGBT people of faith. The photographs are also featured in the Faithfully LGBT website, each one accompanied by the subject’s name, sexual orientation, and religious tradition, as well as a quote about the individual’s relationship to sexuality and faith.

  • “Church,” “body of Christ” you have failed miserably! If God were truly in this modern day Christianity THERE’S NO WAY this would be happening! If “the church” wont stand against evil beyond the comforts and safety of the pulpit then what good is the “church”!?  I believe that there is a remnant of people, those who dont wear suits or titles who are standing against evil. Their voices seem unheard because they are few in number and are being drowned out by the popularity and performances of the Pharisees of today.

Secrets of False Prophets

Satanism and occult’s are gaining ground in the structural church today because most Christians are too afraid to study other texts apart from the English bible, some Christians actually don’t want to know what’s happening around them, so they are content in just quoting bible verses without having any spiritual insight. Serious occult activities are going on Christendom today but most people are unaware, there are numerous false pastors and prophets prophesying and working miracles using occult principles found in occult books such as “THE BOOK OF SOYGA, THE SEAL OF SOLOMON, THE SECRET MAGIC OF ABRAMALIN, THE MYSTERIOUS HOLY BOOK OF ANGEL RAZIEL, just to name a few. These books contain orders of operation, or methods by which one can invoke spirits (falling angels and evil spirits) and make them appear physically, and how to command them to accomplish a spiritual mission, such as foretelling futures, knowing the secrets of any person, fake healing and working what appears to be other notable miracles. For instance, those who operate deeply in the principle of Abramalin can cause a spirit to appear in their private prayer arena, and take any form, such as of a man, woman, animal, bird, serpent, etc.
These magical books are so vast that ANYONE who strictly practices and keeps the rules can perform notable miracles and give accurate predictions, so don’t be amazed when you see someone predicting an outcome of an event, such as football games, wars, someone’s death, election outcomes, plane crashes, etc. Anyone with a strong mind, without the fear of God can conjure a spirit following the method described in the sacred magic of Abramalin, and the invoked spirit will give the person any information requested. There are numeral fallen angelic beings that can assist people in knowing things pertaining to the past and future (to predict the outcome of an event, or revealing past life events, etc) and to work miracles. Those are the entities that the spiritualists invoke/ conjure and use them to work wonders. Here are some of the names of the spiritual entities that some of the false prophets conjure and use to work wonders to deceive the simple minded, I am only mentioning their names just in case you come across some of these false prophets/teachers conjuring these spiritual beings and you think that they are speaking in tongues!
To make predictions and reveal secret things, these are some names of the fallen angels they conjure; M a n a g i h, M i l o n, Th i r a m a, N o l i m, A m a r i h t, H i g a n a m and so many others.
To make any spirit appear physically and take any form they will invoke, R a m i e, E m i n a n u (some can call this name Emanuel just to deceive), N a t a i v e l, E r m o g a s a, I o r a n t g a, U r i e l and so many others…….
To keep the Familiar Spirits bond or free form, they will conjure Amaymon, Paimon, C e p h i r, O i k e t i s, P a r a s, P e r a c h I, etc…..
For fake healing, they’ll conjure an angel known as Z e o f r a s e, A m i g d e lo, L e i h c e z e and so many others. Miracle seekers beware! Simply because some false prophets can keep familiar spirits under control does not mean that the person is operating with the right Spirit of God. Many people attend these kind of Churches without knowing that they are already in Satan’s camp…..Beware! –

  • Interesting, my question is, “Why isn’t this being taught in “the church”? Could it be that these self-acclaimed “men of God” don’t know it? Why would God call them to be shepherds without equipping them properly to direct the sheep? OR Is it possible that they do know it, and are using these tactics [while keeping them secret] to control their church members? Church, you have failed again!
