Christian doctor FIRED for saying gender is determined at birth…

(Natural News) The British government has declared a Christian physician “unfit to work” after the self-identified Reformed Baptist vocalized out loud the definitive truth that there are only two biological genders: male and female.

According to reports, Dr. David Mackereth’s tenure within the government-run health system of the United Kingdom was exceptionally short-lived because of his position in support of the laws of nature, which apparently no longer have a place in England.

Dr. Mackereth had originally been tasked with compiling independent reports about the true health status of Brits claiming disability benefits. Part of his assignment was to refer to interviewees only by their preferred gender pronouns – something that he simply couldn’t do because of his religious convictions.

12 Signs That America Has Become A Politically-Correct Madhouse

What in the world has happened to the United States?  We are rapidly getting to the point where political correctness is in danger of becoming our national religion.  Of course most people would not even call it a “religion”, but for most Americans this unwritten set of rules shapes everything that they think, do and say.  Many had been hoping that the spell of political correctness would be broken by the election of Donald Trump, but that obviously has not happened.  The forces of political correctness still have a stranglehold on our education system, on all forms of entertainment, on our legal system, and on most of the politicians in both political parties.

The unwritten rules of political correctness are shifting and changing all the time, and if you don’t keep up with them the penalties can be extremely severe.

If you do or say the wrong thing at the wrong time, you could lose your friends, you could lose your job, and you could potentially even lose your reputation.

In fact, there have been numerous people over the past year that have been publicly crucified in the court of public opinion for doing or saying something that was not politically-correct.

And with each passing day, the forces of political correctness take a little bit more ground.  The following are 12 signs that America has become a politically-correct madhouse…

#1 According to Time Magazine, a book entitled “Santa’s Husband” will be released on October 10th by a major U.S. publisher that depicts Santa as “a gay man in an interracial relationship”.

#2 A middle school in North Hollywood is facing substantial budget cuts because they have too many non-minority students

Outrage has grown at Walter Reed Middle School in North Hollywood, as the school faces layoffs and increased class sizes due to a law limiting funds for schools with a higher white student body.

The Los Angeles Unified School District provides more funding for schools where the white population is below 30 percent.

In a letter to parents, the district noted the highly regarded middle school had been above the percentage for the past couple years.

#3 According to Michael Moore, historians will mark “March 28, 2017, as the day the extinction of human life on earth began” because Donald Trump has rolled back Obama’s climate change regulations.

#4 One of my readers just sent me a photo that his 16-year-old son took at school.  It is a photo of a slide that was being projected on to a large screen at the front of his classroom that contained this message: “Polls show that young people today are more accepting of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people than ever before.  Why do you think that is?”

#5 An elementary school in California has banned the game of “tag” because it is too dangerous.

#6 At one high school in Iowa, students were recently denounced as “racists” for dressing up in red, white and blue for a basketball game.

#7 In North Carolina, as early as the first grade a “gender unicorn” is being used to teach children “about sexual orientation and gender identity“…

Just last year in our home city of Charlotte, North Carolina, the Charlotte Mecklenburg School System used the “gender unicorn” to teach students—as young as first grade—all about sexual orientation and gender identity. This cute, little, fury animal was used to promote the idea that sexual orientation asks the question, “Who do you go to bed with?” while gender identity asks the question, “Who do you go to bed as?” And these can be fluid, of course. Kids can change whenever and however they want.

#8 According to Dr. Michael Brown, bathroom scales have been taken out of the gym at one college campus for a very strange reason: “Administrators at Carleton University have removed the bathroom scales from the campus gym, claiming that ‘being fixated on weight’ does not ‘have any positive affect [sic] on your health.'”

#9 A Christian university in Minnesota has told professors “to stop using terms such as ‘man’ and ‘mankind’ because they are too masculine“.

#10 Snickers bars will soon be sold in rainbow wrappers “as part of a pro-LGBT ad campaign“.

#11 A 32-year-old man will now compete in international volleyball events as a transgender woman, and may end up qualifying for the Olympics as a female athlete…

The now 32-year old says volleyball has been the constant in a life full of changes. In January, she was just approved by USA Volleyball to compete as a woman. Before that, she was required to play in the men’s division at all USAV sanctioned events.

USAV requires transgender women to undergo hormone replacement therapy consistently for at least one year — with proper documentation — and they also have to change their identification, like passports and birth certificates, to female. Before, some organizations, including the Olympics, would require trans athletes to have sex reassignment surgery.

#12 Planned Parenthood has killed millions of children, but nobody from that organization ever seems to get into trouble with the law.  Instead, two activists that exposed the fact that Planned Parenthood is auctioning off baby parts to the highest bidder have been charged with 15 felonies in the state of California.

In this type of environment, people like me are becoming dinosaurs.  If you follow my work on a regular basis, you know that I am not afraid to do or say things that might offend some people.

Of course I am not actually trying to offend anyone, but I won’t let the forces of political correctness dictate what I can or cannot say about a particular topic.

Ultimately, political correctness is a tool that progressives use to silence the opposition.

They want to make it a crime to think or say anything that they might find offensive, and to a substantial degree it is working.

Our founders intended for us to permanently have a right to free speech, but now we have moved into a time when saying the wrong thing can get you brutally persecuted.

I would like to be optimistic that we can start to roll back the forces of political correctness, but as I noted at the beginning of this article, they have control of our schools, our courts, our entertainment and most of our political leaders.

But of course we can never give up the fight, because if they win life in America will ultimately become a complete and total nightmare.

Florida teacher at predominantly Latino school reassigned to administrative duties after making pro-Trump Facebook post supporting mass deportation during school hours

A Florida elementary teacher at a predominately Latino school had her job reassigned after she made a Facebook post during school hours that supported mass deportation.

Veronica Fleming had her classroom taken away after she made a status that said she was ‘glad about massive deportation’ and there would be ‘less mouths to feed’ on Thursday.

The teacher at Parkside Elementary School, where 96 percent of students are a minority, thanked President Trump after sharing an article about immigrant protests.

Oxford University has told colleges and academic departments to remove gender-specific titles such as Mr and Mrs from their websites and leaflets.

The guidance, contained in a document from the Equality and Diversity Unit, suggests only academic terms like Dr and Prof should be retained.

It advised that while the process of removing gender-specific titles is underway, people should be given the option of appearing without any prefix.

Journalists Struggle To Define ‘Fake News’ Even As They Declare War On It

red-question-mark-public-domain

In the weeks following Donald Trump’s unexpected victory in last month’s election, liberal journalists have launched an all-out assault on “fake news,” which some have blamed for the disconnect between political journalists and everyday Americans.

But many of those same journalists seem unable to agree on a consistent definition of what “fake news” is, oftentimes pushing leading conservative and alternative media organizations that provide ideological balance in the public forum under the same “fake news” umbrella alongside websites whose entire purpose is generating viral hoaxes.

You Could Be Fined 250,000 Dollars If You Offend A Transgender Woman In New York City

Political Correctness

Political correctness is officially out of control in New York City.  According to brand new rules that were just issued by the New York City Commission on Human Rights, you could potentially be fined $250,000 if you purposely offend someone that is transgender.  This includes such offenses as calling a transgender woman “him” when she wants to be called “her”, or not allowing a transgender woman to use the women’s bathroom.  These guidelines are particularly focused on the behavior of landlords, employers and businesses, but they will undoubtedly create a chilling effect on speech all throughout New York City.

Needless to say, these new regulations will result in a flood of litigation as transgender individuals exercise their new “rights”.  According to the New York City Commission on Human Rights, employers must now use “an individual’s preferred name, pronoun and title” when referring to that person.  And some of the pronouns that were given as examples by the Commission were only recently introduced to the English language and many people don’t even know how to pronounce them.  The following comes directly from the new “guidelines”

The NYCHRL requires employers and covered entities to use an individual’s preferred name, pronoun and title (e.g., Ms./Mrs.) regardless of the individual’s sex assigned at birth, anatomy, gender, medical history, appearance, or the sex indicated on the individual’s identification. Most individuals and many transgender people use female or male pronouns and titles.

Some transgender and gender non-conforming people prefer to use pronouns other than he/him/his or she/her/hers, such as they/them/theirs or ze/hir.

All facilities in New York City will now also be required to allow transgender individuals to use whatever bathrooms and locker rooms they prefer.  Here is more from the new “guidelines”

The NYCHRL requires that individuals be permitted to use single-sex facilities, such as bathrooms or locker rooms, and participate in single-sex programs, consistent with their gender, regardless of their sex assigned at birth, anatomy, medical history, appearance, or the sex indicated on their identification. The law does not require entities to make existing bathrooms all-gender or construct additional restrooms. Covered entities that have single-occupancy restrooms should make clear that they can be used by people of all genders.

So what would stop some sick pervert from pretending to be transgender just so that he can go into the women’s locker room at the gym?

Presumably nothing.

You would think that New York City would have far bigger priorities to deal with than this.  Right now, almost 60,000 people are sleeping in homeless shelters in New York City every night, and the homeless crisis there has gotten so bad that it is being called an “epidemic”.

This is just another example of our society’s growing obsession with political correctness.  And if you think that it is bad now, just wait until the next generation takes over.

Our colleges and universities have become political correctness indoctrination centers.  One survey found that 62 percent of our colleges and universities have implemented “speech codes” that “severely departed from First Amendment standards”, and students are going to ridiculous extremes to try to insulate themselves from any language that could possibly be considered “racist”, “sexist” or threatening.  Just check out the following excerpt from a recent article about political correctness at U.S. colleges that was published by the Telegraph

The lexicon of college has changed: students now speak about “micro-aggressions”, “trigger warnings” and “safe spaces”.

The notion of the “safe space” first emerged to describe a place of refuge for people exposed to racial prejudice or sexism. But the phrase has changed meaning to the point where now it often implies protection from “exposure to ideas that make one uncomfortable”, according to Nadine Strossen, a prominent law professor and former head of the American Civil Liberties Union.

At Brown University – like Harvard, one of the eight elite Ivy League universities – the New York Times reported students set up a “safe space” that offered calming music, cookies, Play-Doh and a video of frolicking puppies to help students cope with a discussion on how colleges should handle sexual assault.

And all over America, colleges and universities are seemingly obsessed with getting our young people to use the right words.  For example, just check out what is happening at the University of Michigan

Dozens of posters plastered across the University of Michigan caution students not to say things that might hurt others’ feelings, part of a new “Inclusive Language Campaign” at the state’s flagship public university that cost $16,000 to implement.

Words declared unacceptable through the campaign include “crazy,” “insane,” “retarded,” “gay,” “tranny,” “gypped,” “illegal alien,” “fag,” “ghetto” and “raghead.” Phrases such as “I want to die” and “that test raped me” are also verboten.

Meanwhile, the quality of the education being served at these institutions has plummeted and millions of students are graduating each year without any real marketable skills.  Most parents assume that their children are being prepared for “the real world” when they attend college, but in many cases that simply is not happening.

I attended public universities here in the United States for eight years, so I know what I am talking about.  Instead of learning skills and abilities that apply to the marketplace of tomorrow, our young adults are being taught all sorts of gobbledygook.  The following are some real courses that have been taught at U.S. colleges in recent years…

-“What If Harry Potter Is Real?

-“Lady Gaga and the Sociology of Fame

-“Philosophy And Star Trek

-“Learning From YouTube

-“How To Watch Television

But these mindless courses are actually preferable to the courses which systematically pump radical leftist propaganda into the minds our our impressionable young people.  Thanks in part to our system of education, each generation of Americans has steadily become more liberal.  And at this point we are already so far gone as a society that it appears that there is not much hope left for us.

If you doubt this, just look at what is in the headlines.  Once again this year, Barack Obama is “the most admired man” in America.  He has now won that title eight times.

And Hillary Clinton was once again crowned “the most admired woman” in America.  She has won that title 14 years in a row, and 20 times overall.

The American people love Obama and Clinton and the politically correct system that they represent.  I wish I could be more optimistic about the future of our country, but at this point it is hard to see much hope.

So what do you think?

Is there any hope that any of this could ever be turned around?

Please feel free to tell us what you think by posting a comment below…

University of Tennessee tells staff and students to stop using ‘he’ and ‘she’ – and switch to ‘xe’, ‘zir’ and ‘xyr’ instead

Ze, Xe, Zir - University of Tennessee

The University of Tennessee has told its staff and students to stop calling each other ‘he’, ‘she’, ‘him’ and ‘her’ – and to start referring to one another with terms like ‘xe’, ‘zir’ and ‘xyr’ instead.

The Knoxville branch of the public university, which has 27,400 students, sent a memo round to its members filled with unusual new parts of speech to avoid referring to anybody’s gender.

According to a gay rights official at the university, the new language regime will make the university ‘welcoming and inclusive’ and stop people feeling ‘marginalized’.

Biggest Gay Lobby Group in America Urges Schools to Ban Words ‘Boy’ and ‘Girl’

What - Public Domain

The biggest gay rights lobby group in the United States has called on schools to eliminate “gender stereotypes” by training staff to avoid using the words “boy” and “girl” in class.

A new back to school guide published by the Human Rights Campaign designed to make classrooms “gender inclusive” urges teachers to “avoid using gender to divide and address students” so as to prevent any transgender students from becoming upset.

“Instead of addressing your class using “boys” and “girls,” try something new. Words like “friends,” “students” or “scholars” allow all students to feel included, expand student vocabulary and model inclusive language and behavior for other students and teachers,” states the guide.

Asking students to identify as male or female on paperwork is also vehemently discouraged, with the guide encouraging schools to, “consider adding a third write-in option for those who have non-binary gender identities.”

Conservative Texas Christian University student suspended for ‘racially offensive’ tweets about Islam, the Baltimore rioters and Mexicans

Harry Vincent

A Texas Christian University student has been disciplined after posting online comments seen as racially offensive about current events, including rioting in Baltimore and the rise of the Islamic State, according to TCU officials.

TCU said Harry Vincent, a 19-year-old sophomore, violated two Student Code of Conduct provisions concerning ‘infliction of bodily or emotional harm’ and ‘disorderly conduct’ with his social media rants.

As a result, Vincent has been suspended from all extracurricular activities for one year, such as college football games, and can no longer live on campus or use non-academic facilities, such as the cafeteria and recreational center.

Liberals Sign Petition to Impose 10% “Male Privilege Tax”

Political Correctness

Liberals signed a petition to address “income inequality” by imposing a 10% “male privilege tax” on all men in the latest Mark Dice ‘man on the street’ video which illustrates how much leftists are divorced from reality.

Asked to support an additional 10% tax on men’s income, one woman responded, “I’ll definitely sign for that,” before adding, “Yeah I’ve never heard of that before but whatever they’re trying to do right now is clearly not working so I’m all for giving it a shot.”

Dice then talks to a couple, telling the woman the petition is to “fight sexism in this new world order.” She signs right in front of her boyfriend, who doesn’t dare raise a whimper of dissent.

As Barack Obama unveiled a new program to collect data on Americans by race in order to document “inequalities” between minorities and whites, Americans signed a petition to impose a “white privilege tax” on all Caucasians.

Mark Dice’s latest ‘man on the street’ stunt is perhaps his most outrageous yet, proving that leftists will advocate unbridled insanity so long as they are told it’s in the name of fighting racism.

Asked to sign the petition to support a 1% income tax on all white Americans in order to “even out the playing field” and redistribute the wealth amongst minority communities, the first man in the clip is incredulous that such a policy would pass but signs his name to it anyway.

Democrats Introduce Bill to Ban ‘Husband’ and ‘Wife’ as ‘Anti-Gay’ Words

Husband And Husband - Wikimedia Commons

Fresh off the Supreme Court ruling on gay marriage, Democrats in California have introduced a bill that would ban the words “husband” and “wife” from being used in federal law because they are “gendered terms” and discriminate against gay people.

The words husband and wife were deleted from California state law last year in order to accommodate same sex marriage.

Under new legislation proposed by over two dozen Democrats, that same rule would be applied federally. The bill, introduced by Rep. Lois Capps, D-Calif, would introduce new “gender-neutral” terms such as “spouse” or “married couple.”

“The Amend the Code for Marriage Equality Act recognizes that the words in our laws have meaning and can continue to reflect prejudice and discrimination even when rendered null by our highest courts,” Capps said. “Our values as a country are reflected in our laws. I authored this bill because it is imperative that our federal code reflect the equality of all marriages.”

Capps said that amending the language used was necessary to reflect “the equality of all marriages” following last month’s Supreme Court ruling on gay marriage that mandated all states to license same sex marriages.

D.C. Residents Say Take Down Jefferson Memorial, Rename Washington, D.C.

District of Columbia residents and tourists weighed in on the controversy surrounding the Confederate flag, some saying the nation should go as far as renaming Washington, D.C.

CNN anchor Don Lemon recently floated the idea of re-thinking the Jefferson Memorial, dedicated to Thomas Jefferson, the third president of the United States, since he was a slave owner.

“There may come a day when we want to re-think Jefferson, I don’t know if we should do that, but when we get to that point, I’ll be happy to partake in that particular discussion,” Lemon said.

“It should come down,” one D.C. resident told PJ Media, referencing the Jefferson Memorial in Washington.

Girl Scouts Raise Over $250K for Transgender Members

The Girl Scouts of Western Washington raised over $250,000 after stating that any transgender living “culturally as a girl” is welcome to join.

The Seattle-based organization initially launched the campaign to replace a $100,000 donation its leaders rejected because the donor requested it not be used to support transgender scouts.

“The #ForEVERYGirl campaign had raised two-and-a-half-times its goal with $250,000 and counting from 5,000 donors (and nearly a month left to go on the IndieGogo clock),” Fast Company’s Sarah Lawson reported. “In an update to the campaign on Tuesday night, Girl Scouts said it could now help 1,000 girls with the money.”

“In a blog post from May, Girl Scouts of the USA said any girl living ‘culturally as a girl’ was welcome to participate in the scouts program.”

After six months of study, the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency, a division of the Department of Homeland Security, has issued new guidelines on how to care for transgender illegal aliens who end up in detention facilities, awaiting possible deportation.

The goal of the Transgender Care Memorandum is to provide a “respectful, safe and secure environment for all detainees, including those individuals who identify as transgender.”

Among the questions to be asked of men who identify as women or vice-versa: “Do you prefer to wear male or female clothing?” “Are there any specific clothing items (e.g. undergarments) that you need that you have not been provided?”

Mother Arrested, Charged With Child Endangerment For Letting 7-Year-Old Play In Park

Playground - Public Domain

A mother in Westbrook, Maine was arrested by police and charged with child endangerment after she let her 7-year-old daughter play unsupervised in a park a few hundred feet from their home.

Nicole Jensen told reporters with WMTW that police asked her to accompany them to the station because her child was “outside unsupervised”.

“They said, ‘Do you know where your daughter is?’ and I said, ‘Yes,’ and they said, ‘Well no you don’t. She’s at the police station,” Jensen said about when police called her. “[The officer] said she was at the park unsupervised, no one knew where she was, and if I hadn’t gotten a hold of you, I would have taken her into DHHS.”

Of course, it was some busy body neighbor who called the cops after seeing the child alone in the park.

That’s right, it has now become the norm for Americans to panic and call the police if they see a child playing in a park.

Even though Jensen can see the park from her porch, and requires her kids to check in with her every hour, as well as organising with other parents to look out for each other’s kids, it wasn’t enough.

“I can usually count on at least a dozen that I know and that she plays with,” Jensen said. “We watch each other’s kids. I don’t just send her over here and ignore her all day.”

Police claim that the girl had been on her own in the park for an hour.

Amazon made the announcement this week, along with eBay, Sears and Walmart, that it would no longer sell products bearing the rebel flag, but according to a conversation posted on YouTube between a customer and an Amazon sales rep, the decision could have been made as a result of pressure from the government.

At first the Amazon staffer claims that the items were banned because they were deemed to be offensive, but when pressed by the customer, the sales rep tells a different story.

“Is this a political statement by Amazon.com or is this a directive that you’re following, that the government said you know we want you guys not to sell these anymore?” asks the caller.

“The government is not allowing us to sell this Confederate flag,” responds the staffer.

“So the government is not allowing you….to sell it?” asks the caller, to which the sales rep responds, “yes.”

“So Amazon is not making a political statement, this is something the government told you to do?” questions the caller.

“Exactly,” responds the staffer.

German Court Rules Men Can Urinate While Standing

In Dusseldorf, Germany a court has ruled that it is permissible for men to urinate while standing.

The ruling came after a landlord in the sixth most populous city in Germany sought nearly $2,855 in damages to repair a bathroom floor. The landlord claimed the floor had “lost its sheen” by being regularly sprinkled with urine by a male tenant.

“Despite growing domestication of men in this matter, urinating while standing up is still common practice,” said Judge Stefan Hank, who added that damage to marble floors from urine is virtually unknown.

Germans are debating whether men should sit or stand when urinating. Some public toilets in the country have red traffic-style signs advising men to sit while peeing.

A federal court judge has ordered the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service to immediately return wolves in the Great Lakes region to the federal endangered species list, making it illegal for Michigan citizens to kill wolves attacking livestock or dogs.

Under endangered species status, wolves may be killed only in the immediate defense of human life.

Two state laws allowing livestock or dog owners to kill wolves in the act of depredation are suspended by the ruling.

Additionally, lethal control permits previously issued by the Michigan Department of Natural Resources to livestock farmers to address ongoing conflicts with wolves are no longer valid; permit holders have been contacted regarding this change.

Michelle Obama Recently Cited Alleged Example of Racism at Target — Her Story Sounded Pretty Different When She Told It in 2013

Michelle Obama On Letterman

Appearing on “Late Show” with David Letterman in 2013, First Lady Michelle Obama also told the story of how a woman once asked her for help getting something off a shelf. It’s the same story she told in a recent interview with People magazine, in which she seemingly suggested race played a role in the woman’s solicitation of her assistance.

However, her story seemingly lacked the racial undertones when she told it to Letterman last year.

“I went to Target. I thought I was undercover. I have to tell you something about this trip though,” she said. “No one knew that was me because a woman actually walked up to me, right, I was in the detergent isle and she said — I kid you not — she said, ‘excuse me, I just have to ask you something.’ And I thought, ‘cover’s blown.’ She said, ‘Can you reach on that shelf and hand me the detergent?’ I kid you not!”

Then she added some context.

“And the only thing she said — I reached up because she was short — and I reached up and pulled it down and she said, ‘Well, you didn’t have to make it look so easy.’ That was interaction, I feel so good. She had no idea who I was.”

Florida City Council Meeting Opens with Invocation to Satan & Allah – Mayor and Commissioners Walk Out

Cop Allows Saudis With Dead Baby in Trunk to Drive Away So as Not to Offend Muslims

Political Correctness

An outlandish example of political correctness occurred in Tennessee yesterday when a police officer allowed a car full of Saudi Arabians to drive away with a dead baby reportedly in the trunk so as not to be “disrespectful” towards Muslims.

Police in Sumner and Robertson counties are on the lookout for a blue Dodge Charger after a traffic stop on Interstate 65 around 3:15 p.m. Wednesday.

The vehicle, which had paper tags and a registration violation, contained three Saudi Arabians with Saudi drivers licenses who told the officer that they had a dead child in the trunk prepared for an Islamic burial at a mosque in Franklin.

Millersville Police Chief David Hindman told News 2 that the officer, “not wanting to be disrespectful to the men or their faith, let the car drive away without checking the trunk to see if their story was true.” The cop also failed to take the names of the Saudi men or any information from their identification documents. It was also subsequently confirmed that there isn’t even a mosque in Franklin.

MSNBC Guest: USA Founded On Racism; Ferguson Riots Caused By ‘White Supremacy’

MSNBC HQ - Photo by Jeff Maurone from Seattle, WA, USA

An interview broadcast by MSNBC claimed that the rioting and looting in Ferguson was caused by white supremacy, and that America is a country founded on racism.

Mychal Denzel Smith of The Nation magazine, the oldest continuously published weekly magazine in the United States, made the claims on The Reid Report, and host Joy-Ann Reid simply agreed without providing any counter claim.

Sporting a t-shirt with a slogan “unapologetically black”, Smith, who writes for the self-described ‘flagship of the left’ publication, asserted that the American public have “a kind of Amnesia” when it comes to race issues.

“They forget we’ve had this conversation before.” Smith said, referring specifically to the Trayvon Martin case and others before it.

“The parameters of the conversation are so narrowly defined as to define racism as a personal hatred towards black people.” Smith argued.

“And we’re not then dealing with the systemic ideas that uphold racism and white supremacy in this country.” he added.

“What we refuse to deal with is the idea — the fact — that our, the foundation of this country is racism and white supremacy and all of our institutions uphold that.” Smith claimed.

Teacher to Student: If You Don’t Support Gay Marriage, Drop My Class

College Classroom - Public Domain

Students who oppose gay marriage are homophobic, according to an audio recording of a Marquette University instructor who went on to say that gay rights issues cannot be discussed in class because it might offend homosexuals.

I reached out to the 20-year-old student at the center of this outrageous episode and the story he tells should serve as a warning to anyone who thinks religious schools are safe havens for open discourse.

The story was first reported on a blog run by a Marquette University professor and was picked up by the good folks over at The College Fix.

The young man, who asked not to be identified, explained what happened when his ethics instructor, Cheryl Abbate, led a conversation in “Theory of Ethics” class about applying philosophical theories to modern political controversies. There were a list of issues on the board—gay rights, gun rights and the death penalty.

“We had a discussion on all of them—except gay rights,” the student told me. “She erased that line from the board and said, ‘We all agree on this.'”

Nebraska Schools Ban Term ‘Boys And Girls’, Train Teachers To Avoid ‘Gendered Expressions’

Genderbread Person

In what is possibly one of the most unsettling examples of political correctness, schools in Lincoln Nebraska are training teachers to completely disavow gender, and avoid referring to pupils as ‘boys and girls’.

Liberty minded Independent news website Nebraska Watchdog uncovered the documents. In one handout, entitled “12 easy steps on the way to gender inclusiveness” teachers are advised to “Avoid asking kids to line up as boys or girls or separating them by gender.”

“Instead, use things like ‘odd and even birth date,’ or ‘Which would you choose: skateboards or bikes/milk or juice/dogs or cats/summer or winter/talking or listening.’ … Always ask yourself, ’Will this configuration create a gendered space?’” the material states.

“Don’t use phrases such as ‘boys & girls,’ ‘you guys,’ ‘ladies and gentlemen,’ and similarly gendered expressions to get kids’ attention,” it continues, before providing further utterly ludicrous suggestions such as ‘campers,’ ‘readers,’ athletes’ or even ‘purple penguins’.

The material then gets downright weird, stating “Provide an opportunity for every student to identify a preferred name or pronoun. … When you find it necessary to reference gender, say ‘Boy, girl, both or neither.’”

FCC Considers Banning Redskins Name On Television

Washington Redskins Monday Night Football

The Federal Communications Commission is weighing whether to ban TV stations from saying the name of Washington’s football team.

A law professor filed a petition with the agency earlier this month, claiming that the name “Redskins” violates federal rules barring any indecent content on broadcast television.

At a press conference Tuesday, FCC Chairman Tom Wheeler said he is reviewing the filing.

“We will be dealing with that issue on the merits, and we will be responding accordingly,” Wheeler said.

The FCC chief said he personally finds the term offensive and urged the team to change the name. But he didn’t say whether he thinks it is illegal.

“There are a lot of names and descriptions that were used for a time that are inappropriate today,” he said. “I think the name that is attributed to the Washington football club is one of those.”

The NFL Has Become A Circus Of Political Correctness

Do you remember when the NFL actually used to be about football? The NFL has become a reflection of society at large, and it has been disgusting to watch the transformation take place. And I am not talking about the reprehensible behavior of players such as Ray Rice, Adrian Peterson and Greg Hardy. The things that each of those men are accused of doing are absolutely horrible, and each one of them should have the opportunity to be held accountable for their actions in a court of law. But what I am talking about is how the NFL has become a circus of political correctness. These days, there is very little talk about what is actually happening on the field. Rather, there is endless debate about the latest scandals and about what the proper politically-sensitive response to those scandals should be. And of course the media just loves to add fuel to the fire. If they can get a coach or a player to say something that is just slightly politically inappropriate that will give them the latest “breaking news” to write about.

Why can’t everyone just shut up for a while and enjoy the most beautiful sport in the entire world?

And why does a sports league have to be a platform for shoving political viewpoints and social agendas down the throats of the fans?

Now we are even being told by some “sports journalists” that we should feel bad about liking football because of the actions of a few bad apples.

For example, the following is an excerpt from Peter King’s latest article entitled “Should We Still Like Football?“…

So, should we still like football? I’ve asked myself that a few times over the past week. I think we all have. And what I’ve come to think is this: It’s a personal decision. I can’t tell you to feel better about the gutter the NFL has fallen into, or to spend your money on one more NFL jersey or hat or Red Zone channel. It has to be your decision.

If you’re revolted by Ray Rice cold-cocking his fiancée or Adrian Peterson taking a tree branch to his 4-year-old to discipline the kid or the graphic testimony in the disturbing Greg Hardy trial, and you just can’t watch one more game, don’t. It’s your call. No one can make it for you.

Is he kidding us?

I don’t know about you, but I am not going to give up my passion for a game that I have loved since I was a child just because some guy decided to hit his wife.

The players are not the game.

Rather, the truth is that the game is far, far larger than the players.

Or it should be.

When a football player breaks the law, we have a legal system to deal with that. And football players should not be treated any differently than anyone else. When they have done something wrong, they should pay the price.

But instead, everyone seems to want to turn the NFL into the politically correct police. Just check out what U.S. Senator Kirsten Gillibrand said the other day

Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.) signaled on Sunday that Congress may hold hearings on the NFL’s handling of domestic abuse in light of the Ray Rice case, if the league does not “police” itself.

“If the NFL doesn’t police themselves, then we will be looking more into it. We will — I wouldn’t be surprised if we have hearings,” she said in an interview with CBS’s “Face the Nation.”

And it just so happens that Gillibrand is strongly considering running for president in 2016 if Hillary Clinton does not run. Some insiders are saying that if Gillibrand does run, she has a really good shot of winning the Democratic nomination.

But I digress. Getting back to the NFL (or the No Fun League as many are calling it these days), the rules have been altered to eliminate so much physical contact that the players may as well be running around in skirts at this point.

I can understand the need to look out for player safety, but football is supposed to be a full contact sport. If the NFL is not careful, it is going to eventually become little more than flag football.

But that is not even the worst part of what is going on. The political correctness in the league office has become so extreme that even the slightest hint of anything non-politically correct is rapidly stamped out.

For example, the NFL recently banned advertisements from “Slap Ya Mama Cajun Products”…

The NFL is forcing Cox Sports Television to cancel part of its advertising deal with Cajun food products company “Slap Ya Mama” due to domestic violence issues facing the league.

In an email sent to “Slap Ya Mama Cajun Products” advertising representative Walker & Sons, Inc., Cox Media Director of Sales Marc Leunissen said that “In light of the domestic violence issues facing the NFL, they have instructed CST pull the Slap Ya Mama logo from our enhancements in the last game, Thursday, August 28…”

But perhaps someone in the league office should have asked what “Slap Ya Mama” means first before instituting such a ban. It turns out that it actually means something very positive down in Cajun country

Jack D. Walker, vice president of Marketing for Walker & Sons, Inc. says that “Slap Ya Mama” refers to the loving slap on the back and a kiss on the cheek one would give their mother as a thank you for preparing a great meal.

And did you know that the clothing that players wear to press conferences is also closely monitored by the league?

On Sunday, Robert Griffin III was wearing a Christian t-shirt in the locker room after the game. But when he came out to speak to the press, he had to have his shirt turned inside-out because of league policy

Robert Griffin III attended a press conference discussing Sunday’s football game where the Redskins quarterback appeared to have turned his Jesus-themed shirt inside-out.

Ahead of a press conference about the ankle injury he sustained during Sunday’s match against the Jacksonville Jaguars, RGIII donned a blue t-shirt that read “Know Jesus Know Peace.” However, once the press event was underway, the NFL star’s shirt was turned-inside out so that the Christian message was unreadable. One reporter for the Washington Post even tweeted a side-by-side comparison of RGIII before and during the press conference.

Following the unusual appearance, questions arose as to why the outspoken Christian athlete would turn his t-shirt inside-out. Later that day, Richmond Times-Dispatch reporter Michael Phillips offered an explanation for the incident, implying that RGIII’s shirt was not a Nike product and therefore is was banned from public appearances. Furthermore, RGIII has been fined in the past for wearing non-Nike apparel.

Speaking of the Washington Redskins, this whole controversy over their name is another example of the extreme political correctness surrounding the league these days.

For decades, the name stood for honor, integrity and pride and nobody ever complained.

But now the politically correct crowd want to force the Redskins to change their name.

I think that Mike Ditka summarized things very well when he said this during a recent interview…

“What’s all the stink over the Redskin name? It’s so much [expletive] it’s incredible. We’re going to let the liberals of the world run this world. It was said out of reverence, out of pride to the American Indian. Even though it was called a Redskin, what are you going to call them, a Brownskin? This is so stupid it’s appalling, and I hope that owner keeps fighting for it and never changes it, because the Redskins are part of an American football history, and it should never be anything but the Washington Redskins. That’s the way it is.”

And of course during the preseason we were subjected to the whole Michael Sam saga.

If he was going to make it in the NFL, he should have made it on his own merits as a football player.

But when he was cut by the Rams, the league office actually called around to teams to try to find someone that would sign Sam to their practice squad…

According to NBC’s Peter King and ESPN’s Stephen A. Smith, NFL officials called teams around the league to gauge interest in signing Michael Sam to their practice squad.

Yesterday, the Dallas Cowboys signed Sam, who is trying to become the first openly gay player in NFL history.

King reported this during the pre-game show on NBC prior to the Seahawks/Packers season opener Thursday night.

“The Rams waived Michael Sam, the first openly gay player trying to make an NFL roster, he was unemployed for two days,” King said. “During that time a league official contacted multiple teams asking if they had evaluated Sam as a probable practice squad player.”

“Now Sam and the NFL avoided a nightmare situation when he signed with the practice squad of the Dallas Cowboys.”

Why not just treat him like any other player?

Well, that just wouldn’t be politically correct enough for the NFL.

And in case you haven’t had enough political correctness so far this season, October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

Every October, NFL players wrap themselves in pink for an entire month.

You see, it wasn’t just enough for the NFL to have an emphasis on breast cancer awareness for a single week.

Instead, they have decided that the politically correct thing to do is to have an entire month of breast cancer awareness every single year for the rest of time.

And there is certainly nothing wrong with fighting such a horrible disease. We should all hope that all forms of cancer will be absolutely eradicated.

But to plaster the players and everything that the league is doing with pink ribbons for an entire month every single October just to show how “sensitive” the league is goes far beyond trying to do the right thing.

Why can’t the NFL just go back to being about football and leave the politics to the politicians?

Or am I being too harsh?

Army Officer Barred From Wearing ‘Offensive’ Uniform At Daughter’s High School

Army Uniform - U.S. Army

A 24-year U.S. Army officer was denied entry to his daughter’s high school because his uniform may “offend another student,” according to the school’s security.

After trying to escort his daughter into Rochester Adams High School in Rochester, Mich., Lieutenant Colonel Sherwood Baker was told by security that if he wanted to enter the school, he would have to go home and change out of his uniform.

“Before he was allowed in, the security guard stopped him and said ‘sorry, you’re not allowed in the school,’” Baker’s wife, Rachel Ferhadson, told My Fox Detroit. “Security told him men and women in uniform weren’t allowed because it may offend another student.”

High School Student Claims She Was Suspended For Saying ‘Bless You’ After Classmate Sneezed

Classroom - Public Domain

A high school student was allegedly suspended after breaking a class rule of saying “bless you” after a classmate sneezed.

Kendra Turner, a senior at Dyer County High School, said bless you to her classmate who sneezed and the teacher told her that the term was for church.

“She said that we’re not going to have godly speaking in her class and that’s when I said we have a constitutional right,” Turner told WMC.

When she defended her actions, the teacher told Turner to see an administrator. The student said that she had to finish the class period in in-school suspension.
