Transgender Man Hears Demonic Voices to ‘Start the Rise of Hell on Earth’

He heard whispers in his head but they stopped being whispers. They started being actual words…

SYDNEY — An Australian man who identifies as a woman who attempted to kill people with an axe at a 7-Eleven store last year while under the influence of drugs says that he heard voices telling him to “kill and maim” and to “start the rise of Hell on Earth.”

According to SBS News Australia, the 26-year-old who goes by the name Evie Amati stood on trial this past week, telling a jury that he drank vodka and took a pill believed to be ecstasy on Jan. 7, 2017 during a date with a woman and her roomate, and soon after began hearing “inaudible whispers” that turned into actual instructions.

He said that he was in a car with his date on the way to a bar, but thought that she and her friend were talking about his gender identity, so he got out and walked the rest of the way home. During the walk, the whispers began, and Amati tried to combat them by smoking marijuana on his balcony. The whispers became louder after the first joint, so he smoked another.

“They stopped being whispers. They started being actual words,” Amati testified, according to the Sydney Morning Herald. “I started seeing some of the violent visions I’d seen previously of me running at police with the ax and being shot dead.”

He then played his favorite heavy metal song to try to get rid of the voices.

“Send an angel to pull me from the Hell below/This weight is far too much to own and this body doesn’t feel like home/Send an angel; I feel I’m dying all alone/So lift me up or let me go because this body doesn’t feel like home,” the lyrics state.

“I only really had one more memory … that voice that had been telling me to kill and maim, and inflict pain on people and start the rise of Hell on Earth,” Amati said.

He said that a “sinister smile” also came over his face, which he could not control.

“I recall everything going quiet and feeling that voice come inside,” Amati testified. “And I remember that smile, the smile that was not mine, a sinister smile that plastered my face that I couldn’t control and then I black[ed] out.”

He said that the next thing he knew, he woke up in the hospital. However, in the meantime, surveillance footage from 7-Eleven shows Amati talking to another customer and then striking him with an axe moments later, along with a woman who was exiting the building. Both survived, but one suffered massive trauma to his face, narrowly avoiding potential life-threatening injuries.

Amati was charged with two counts of causing wounding or grievous bodily harm with intent to murder, along with four other counts. He has pleaded not guilty and has expressed remorse. According to News.com.au, Amati’s attorney told the court that Amati was “out of [his] mind” when the incident occurred.

In his commentary on the Book of Luke, the late Anglican preacher J.C. Ryle once exhorted, “The heart of man can never be satisfied with the things of this world. It is always empty, and hungry, and thirsty, and dissatisfied until it comes to Christ. It is only those who hear Christ’s voice and follow Him and feed on Him by faith who are filled.”

Bibles May Be Banned in California and Most Likely in Other Parts of the Country

Assembly woman Susan Eggman stated, “You can still try to pray the gay away if you like, just not with the guidance of a bible”

According to a post written by The Political Insider  Democrats in the alt-left state of California have passed a bill in the Assembly that would ban the sale of books that express Christian beliefs about sexual morality, quite possibly extending to printed texts such as the Bible.  No surprise there, after all this is the same party that once tried to abolish God from their official political platform … three times.

Assembly Bill 2943, which passed by a vote of 50-18, seeks to eliminate the “sale or lease of goods or services to any consumer” that promote “sexual orientation change efforts with an individual.”  Those efforts are subsequently defined as “efforts to change behaviors or gender expressions, or to eliminate or reduce sexual or romantic attractions or feelings toward individuals of the same sex.”

 

The Bible instills sex as an act meant for marriage between a man and a woman. In other words, its teachings seek to ‘reduce sexual attractions towards individuals of the same sex’.  Even the Los Angeles Times has raised the possibility that such a bill could lead to a ban on Bibles.  “One key part of the debate centers on whether Assembly Bill 2943 would stretch beyond businesses that charge for these programs and extend to printed documents,” they wrote, “even Bibles.”

Randy Thomasson, president of SaveCalifornia.com, seems to think it’s possible.

 

“A church bookstore selling the Bible, of course, selling a book about marriage or sexual purity or overcoming homosexuality or overcoming trans-sexuality,” he explained. “You could see a member of the public or even a member of the state government coming and saying, ‘Hey, that’s illegal.’”

Assemblywoman Susan Eggman, a Democrat who voted in favor of the measure, focused her attention on the gay conversion therapy aspect, already banned by mental health professionals on those under age 18 in California.  She scoffed at Christians concerned about this blatant affront to free speech saying, “But you can still try to pray the gay away, if you like.”  Just not with the guidance of a Bible apparently.

 

 

FYI: did you know that bible possession was once prohibited by the Catholic church? The English parliament in 1543 passed a law forbidding the use of any English translations other than the “Great Bible”. Tyndale’s New Testament was specifically prohibited, and later Wycliffe’s and Coverdale’s Bibles were also banned. It was decreed a crime for any unlicensed person to read or explain the Scriptures in public. It’s funny how history tends to repeat itself! Read about it here

Parents Slam Transgender & Push to Remove Gender-Specific Terms [‘Penis, Vagina’] in School Sex Ed

“School taught my son that he could be in a dress next year if he felt like it,” one parent says in a video by the conservative group, urging Australians to vote ‘no’ on gay marriage.

“Educators and sexuality education programs must … develop ways of talking about bodies and intimacy that shift attention away from the normative association of particular genders with particular anatomies,” the academics argue.  

“Importantly … the language of sperm and eggs can produce dysphoria for some young transgender people. It is entirely possible … to speak about combining the two gametes as resulting in a pregnancy, without referring to egg and sperm per se.”

Riggs has insisted that it is possible to talk about bodily parts and functions without “having to name them in a gendered way.”

“As a parent of children, I know these are difficult conversations to have with children as they involve using words that not everyone is comfortable using,” he said.

“But actually it opens up the possibility for those parents … to say ‘these things can happen’ — STIs, pregnancy — without having to get tripped up with the language.”

Separately there has been a push from some academic circles in Australia for parents to support children who question their gender identity.

The Australian Psychological Society released a guide in August, which also encourages parents to teach primary and secondary schoolchildren to support same-sex marriage.

“Another misconception is that some people worry that children will be harmed in same-sex families, and believe that children do better when they have both a mother and father. This is not true, but also irrelevant to the marriage equality debate,” the guide says, responding to opposition to gay marriage, which is currently being voted on in a postal plebiscite in the country.

The Coalition for Marriage has been warning, however, that some schools are looking to take away the rights of parents.

“School taught my son that he could be in a dress next year if he felt like it,” one parent says in a video by the conservative group, urging Australians to vote ‘no’ on gay marriage.

Another woman shared in the video that “kids in year seven are being asked to role play being in a same-sex relationship.”

Traditional marriage advocates have also warned that “when same-sex marriage passes as law overseas, this type of program becomes widespread and compulsory.”

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.

More Women’s Colleges Now Accepting Men Who Identify as Women

Nine women’s colleges now accept men who identify as women. Spelman College, a historically black university for women in Atlanta, became the latest, announcing Tuesday it would no longer consider gender during the application and admissions process.

Transgender advocates hailed the change as indicative of broader support for those with gender dysphoria. But economic and demographic changes also play a role.

Fewer students are graduating from high school and preparing to pursue higher education, and all small private colleges, including single-gender institutions, are feeling the pinch as they compete with larger state schools to fill seats.

At Mills College, a women’s school in Oakland, Calif., 8 percent of its 700 students identify as transgender women. Other schools say they don’t track gender identity and don’t know how many of their students are men presenting themselves as women.

While schools like Mills, the first to accept transgender women, proudly advertise their new policies, others have expanded admissions quietly, afraid the change will anger alumni who see it as an abandonment of the mission of women’s colleges. Some schools insist they will maintain their gender distinction, considering applications from transgender students only if they’ve completed a physical transition from male to female.

Jeff Hodges, a spokesman for Hollins University in Virginia, said that policy “supports how the university defines its mission as an undergraduate institution of higher learning for women.” Story by Leigh Jones/World News Service

  • Again, WHERE IS THE CHURCH?  The church sits back quietly and allows all types of evil to creep in and then blames the dysfunction of our country on the President. It’s not the president’s fault, it’s the church’s fault for not fighting tooth and nail for holiness to reign! You claim to be “soldiers in God’s army” but you’re too afraid to address the enemy, much less fight!  Church, you have failed again.

Children as Young as 11 Could Start Irreversible Hormone Treatment to Change Gender After Court Ruling

September 6, 2017: Children as young as 11 could be permitted to start irreversible hormone treatment to change their biological sex without the permission of a court under an upcoming landmark family court case in Sydney.

Children as young as 11 could be permitted to start irreversible hormone treatment to change their biological sex without the permission of a court under an upcoming landmark family court case in Sydney.

The Daily Mail reports that five Family Court judges will sit on the case to be heard by the Full Court later this year – the first time they have done so in 12 years.

The case was brought by the father of a 16-year-old who was born female but identified as male from nine-years-old, according to the Daily Telegraph. The child, “Kelvin”, reportedly changed schools to start as a male, used a chest binder and attended the Lesbian Gay Bisexual Transgender Intersex and Questioning “campout” on the Central Coast in 2014.

The court has already decided that Kelvin is “competent” and fully understands what is ­involved in starting hormone treatment; however, his father has launched the appeal to ask the court to step out of the process all together. Should the judges rule in favor of the family, children wishing to undergo hormone therapy will only need the permission of a parent and a medical professional.

Currently, for access stage one treatment known as puberty blockers, children are no longer required to go to court, as the process was recently deemed fully reversible. The second stage of treatment – irreversible gender-affirming hormones, is what will be contested.

A June report from the Daily Telegraph said that an analysis of Family Court judgments from the start of this year show 10 children have been granted legal approval to start “stage two” treatment to allow for physical changes.

Recently, the court ruled in favor of 17-year-old “Ashton” to undergo treatment to fulfill his wishes of becoming a boy after the family spoke of “Ashton’s” distress at having female attributes.

Data released earlier this year by the Gender Identity Development Service (GIDS) shows 1,986 children under the age of 18 have been accepted for specialist treatment in the past year. That’s up from just 94 in 2009-10, with 37 young children under the age of five referred since then.

Western Sydney University professor John Whitehall, who has more than 50 years’ experience treating children, called the rise in transitioning “an infectious trend” and called for an age limit of at least 18 before children who claim they have gender dysphoria are permitted to undergo treatment.

Professor Whitehall said it was “unreasonable” to expect children to understand the gravity of the decisions they were making at such a young age.

“It is unreasonable to expect juveniles to have a complete picture of where they want to be in later life, especially kids that haven’t even yet reached puberty. This is an infectious trend, a dangerous fad and I think it’s nonsense. The courts should stop messing with our kids until they are at least 18 because once you change, that’s it.”

He urged a “watchful waiting” approac­h instead, arguing that a vast majority of children who question their gender will revert to their biological sex by puberty.

“I think it’s a dangerous fad; a dangerous behavioral fashion trend fuelled by the ideologues and fuelled by the media,” he said, adding he was concerned that programs such as Safe Schools, which promotes “gender fluidity”, were causing extra pressure.

“Even making that so-called social transition has consequences,” he said. “It nails the child to the cross. It’s very difficult to come back from that.
