World gone mad: Transgender adults flaunt behavior in churches and schools






Listen to the 10 min audio

Read the transcript:


TOM LAMPRECHT:  Harry, I want to take you to three stories out of different media outlets. They all deal with a transgender story. The first story deals with a Reverend Rose Beeson. Rose recently officially became Peter. The transgender pastor of St. Matthew’s Trinity Church put on a symbolic cap and now the female has become a male — Rose has become Peter.

DR. REEDER: And they had a ceremony — a worship service — to “celebrate” their pastor who came out of the gender closet and said, “Even though I’m a biological female, I must be honest to myself and be a male and I want to set an example for the rest of my flock,” and so the flock has entered into the blasphemy of a worship service that has been hijacked for the purpose of extolling man’s rebellion against God, who made us male and female.

Now, it should not surprise us: There is nothing more virulently in opposition to Biblical Christianity than liberal theology within professing Christianity or in the mainline denominations. So here is a church that said no to the Biblical direction. The church is to be led by qualified men ordained to the office of elder and deacon within the church and they’ve said no to that and they’ve said, “We are going to ordain women to do that,” instead of a complementarian of male and female leadership together with male leadership taking its responsibility in the ordained offices and women coming alongside of that leadership — just like you do in a home with a husband and wife and a father and mother that the church would reflect that complementarian relationship.

They have said, “No, what we’re going to do is usurp it and we will now say that women can take the place of men. Male and female is just interchangeable and it doesn’t matter if you’re male or female. Whatever a male does, a female can do.”

Well, we know that, physiologically, that’s not right; biologically, that’s not right; emotionally and psychologically, that’s not right. But we believe that lie and they believe that lie and they went ahead and began to ordain women to the office of Minister of the Word.

Well, all of a sudden, we find out that they don’t really believe in egalitarian because the person they ordained as a woman has decided, “Well, I’m not really a woman.” Why do you even need to say, “I’m not really a woman; I’m really a man,” because your previous position was, “It doesn’t matter whether you’re male or female — you’re interchangeable,” but now, all of a sudden, it does matter.

Tom, what is ludicrous is these are intelligent people who are making these decisions which, again, reinforces rebellion against God in sin is never sensible. It’s always irrational and some of the smartest people can be the most irrational of all as this congregation got together to celebrate this.


TOM LAMPRECHT:  Harry, you talked about the fact that this is a blasphemous worship service. What is even more shocking is the Scripture verse they used in this celebration is out of Galatians 3. “As many of you were baptized into Christ having clothed yourself with Christ, there is no longer Jew or Greek, there is no longer slave or free, there is no longer male or female, for all of you are one in Jesus Christ.”

DR. REEDER: So the glorious truth that this passage is affirming, that the Gospel goes to anybody no matter what ethnic background — no matter if you’re male or female, rich or poor — that glorious truth is now being translated into, “There’s actually no difference between any of those.”

Interestingly, the same congregation, I’m sure, is saying, “Let’s celebrate Black History Month.” Well, why would you celebrate Black History Month if there is no distinction between the ethnicities?

What they’re doing is, with blasphemy, misusing a passage of scripture that celebrates the free movement of the Gospel to all ethnicities and all genders and that every person who comes to Christ has forgiveness of sins, no matter what your ethnicity or your gender.

What that glorious truth is now being translated into, “Well, there is no difference,” but, again, if there is no difference — if that’s what you’re saying that text means — then why are you celebrating and why are you making a big deal out of no longer female but now you’re going to be a male?

This is simply an act of rebellion against the Lord and then we put it into a worship service — blaspheme worship — and then the church now positions itself that this church has no hope to minister in the culture with the cultural elite promotion of gender dysphoria. They cannot minister to it. In fact, they become part of the problem that leads to this gender mutilation of people, whereby now the suicide rate is exponentially going through the roof.


TOM LAMPRECHT:  Harry, let me take you to a second story out of Cincinnati, Ohio, where a juvenile court judge removed a girl from a parents’ custody and turned her over to her grandparents, who support the 17-year-old’s desire to identify as a boy. What’s interesting about this story is that, while the grandparents think that this biologically female girl ought to be able to medically transition into a boy, the parents said, “No, we think she needs Christian counseling.”

DR. REEDER: And so now the state steps in and takes the child from the parents and give them to the grandparents, not because the grandparents have a better ability, but because the state has decided that the parents do not have the right to protect their child through the adolescent issue of gender dysphoria through Christian counseling.

“We’re not going to allow you to bring Christian counseling into the life of your child” — so now you have a First Amendment violation — “We are now going to take your child from you in order to facilitate the chemical and physical mutilation of this child’s body in her adolescent years.”

It has implications and the implications will be higher heart disease, higher kidney disease and a higher suicide rate. The state now, with fascist power, has intervened into a family.


TOM LAMPRECHT:  Harry, the third story comes out of Swampscott, Massachussetts, where an elementary school principal, a man named Tom Daniels, 52-years-old, he’s married, he has three children of his own, he decided he was going to become Shannon and begin to wear women’s clothing in front of the elementary school students.

DR. REEDER: I think any parent who continues to send their child to this situation is abusing their children. I would never allow my child to have to be confronted in their elementary years with the irrationality of a man claiming, “I am both male and female, but I choose to identify as a female so, in front of these impressionable children on their way to puberty and adolescence, I am now going to dress as a woman, and walk as a woman and talk as a woman,” to whatever ability he is able to pull that off and we’re going to expect these kids to do that.

And then what we’re going to say is — and I quote from the article — “Isn’t it wonderful that he can live with integrity?” No, he is not living with integrity — he is living a lie. Go do a test on his body. Can I tell you what he’s going to be? He is going to be a man — that’s what he is — just go test the body.

Even if he physically mutilates himself to look like a woman with surgery, he is a man. And, also, he is living a lie in front of these children. This is not authentic; you’re not something inside that your body is not. You may be affected by the disparities of the culture in all of its implications and our sin nature that says to God, “I will not be what you made me,” but you are what you are when you are born — that’s what you are. The lie is not what he has been living as a man; the lie is what he is now living, declaring himself to be a woman in front of impressionable children who cannot have the emotional and mental and psychological mechanisms to process something like this.


TOM LAMPRECHT:  Let me take you back to this Cincinnati, Ohio article. What do Christian parents do when a situation like this happens and the state comes and takes their child from them and, basically, forcibly says, “We will administer transgender therapy?”

DR. REEDER: Well, first of all, go to the legal means. And then, secondly, I would attempt to maintain the control of my children. I don’t know what I’d have to do, but I would attempt to do it. And then the third thing is that I would find appropriate people who can rightly represent me — dare I say, they do not pay me and I am not on their board — but the Alliance of Defending Freedom, they’d have a phone call from me tomorrow. Finally, I’d get my church together to pray with me. I would say to the pastor of that church, “You need to step in and provide leadership in the life of this family because they are really being isolated in the irrationality of our cultural devolution and our cultural death spiral.

Dr. Harry L. Reeder III is the Senior Pastor of Briarwood Presbyterian Church in Birmingham.

Evidence mounts of full-scale Russian campaign to undermine American energy

The U.S. government for the first time ever blamed Russia for hacking into American energy infrastructure. The Trump administration action comes a little over two weeks after a House committee detailed Russian attempts to influence energy markets.

U.S. officials said a “multi-stage intrusion campaign by Russian government cyber actors” that began in March 2016, possibly earlier, is part of a campaign to target critical infrastructure, including energy, nuclear and aviation facilities.


The FBI and Department of Homeland Security on Thursday said hackers targeted small facilities “where they staged malware, conducted spear phishing, and gained remote access into energy sector networks,” Reuters reported.

It’s the first time the U.S. has directly called out Moscow for infrastructure hacking. It’s still unclear whether or not the hacks were successful or led to any damage, and the security alert did not name the companies targeted.

The Trump administration condemnation comes more than two weeks after the House Committee on Science, Space and Technology found Russian agents used social media outlets to embolden opposition to American energy production.

“Russia exploited American social media as part of its concerted effort to disrupt U.S. energy markets and influence domestic energy policy,” reads the committee’s report on Russian activities.

The committee found accounts linked to the Internet Research Agency (IRA), a Russian troll farm, published 9,097 social media posts from 2015 to 2017 targeting energy policies and projects. Thirteen Russians connected to IRA were indicted by special counsel Robert Mueller.

“The IRA targeted pipelines, fossil fuels, climate change, and other divisive issues to influence public policy in the U.S.,” the House committee found.

For years, Republicans and energy industry experts have worried Russian money was being used to undermine U.S. energy policy.

Intelligence officials confirmed in early 2017 in a declassified report on election meddling that the state-owned media outlet Russia Today (RT) ran “anti-fracking programming, highlighting environmental issues and the impacts on public health.”

The House committee began the investigation in 2017 and asked Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin to investigate whether or not Russians were using an offshore Bermuda-based law firm to funnel money to U.S. environmental groups.

Lawmakers asked Mnuchin to investigate whether or not the U.S.-based environmental group, the Sea Change Foundation, took $23 million from a Bermuda-based shell company with ties to Russian oligarchs in 2010 and 2011.

Sea Change gave millions to U.S.-based environmental groups, including the Natural Resources Defense Council, the Sierra Club and the League of Conservation Voters. All of those groups oppose hydraulic fracturing.

Wounded Warrior running for Alabama State House representing Chambers and Lee Counties

Back in 2003, while U.S. Army Specialist Todd Rauch and his buddies were patrolling the streets of Abu Ghraib, an Iraqi city made famous by its notorious prison, a remotely-detonated mortar exploded near his patrol. His right shoulder and hand were severely injured in the blast.

Rauch was eventually flown to Walter Reed Army Medical Center in Washington, D.C., and endured 12 surgeries to save his limbs from amputation.

He is now running as a Republican for the State House of Representatives district representing Chambers and Lee Counties.

So how did this Illinois-native find himself running for office in Alabama?

While recovering at the hospital, Rauch’s roommate was from Fort Payne and “all he talked about was Auburn and Auburn and Auburn,” Rauch told Yellowhammer News.


Rauch soon recovered from his injuries, and then his plans for a transition to civilian life became all about … Auburn, Auburn, Auburn.

“I applied to Auburn and felt like it was a good place to get a fresh start,” he said

Rauch studied psychology at Auburn University, with the intention of working in veteran services or military intelligence. He then worked for a time as an intelligence analyst and then began working in veterans’ services, helping his brothers and sisters in arms receive the benefits they were promised.

He’s running on a platform strengthening communities.

Rauch has a firm conviction that a community’s representative ought to be more present in the community itself, something he said he hasn’t seen much at the 75 city and county commission meetings he has attended over the last few years.

“I realized that there was no one there who was representing us in Montgomery to take those voices and those issue and those problems to Montgomery,” he said.

Rauch has put improving jobs and education among his platform principles.

He is a stanch supporter of the community college system, of which both he and his wife are products.

“It’s a good and affordable way to get your education and to get experience in college without jumping into a four-year university,” he said.

Rauch also supports expanding broadband access to rural areas. He said it is critical to the development of rural areas that have little internet and cell service.

“You’re not able to do your banking,” he said. “Some of these people aren’t even able to have home security systems because some of that works off of cell service.”

With the campaign motto, “Community. Country. Service,” Rauch said he wants to work to improve life for his constituents, and by extension, the rest of the state and country.

“Focusing on the community creates better environment for the kids, inspires better leaders, and provides better community for our state, and provides a better state for our country,” he said.

The GOP primary is June 5.

The conservative alternative to Martha Roby gains momentum as Terry Everett, lawmakers endorse Barry Moore

State Rep. Barry Moore’s campaign for Congress recently received strong endorsements from the district’s former congressman and a dozen of Alabama’s most conservative state lawmakers.

“Since I left Congress, government has grown, our representation has wavered, and District 2 values have been casted aside,” said former Republican Congressman Terry Everett, who represented the district from 1993-2009. “We need to make a change, and I am privileged to support Representative Barry Moore for Congress.”

Everett’s powerful endorsement comes days after 12 of the state’s most conservative lawmakers gathered in Montgomery to endorse Barry Moore, whose conservative record they witnessed firsthand while working alongside him in the State Legislature.

Wetumpka State Rep. Mike Holmes told reporters that the district has “an opportunity to send a strong, unapologetic conservative to Washington,” and Montgomery State Rep. Dimitri Polizos agreed, saying that Moore is a “proven conservative leader” who will “stand with President Trump and give our district the representation it deserves.”
