The traditionally Republican state of Idaho is becoming a launching pad for LGBT activists to push gender theory and wokeism, The Idaho Tribune is reporting.
The conservative blog just released evidence that the Idaho Department of Health and Welfare is mandating “sexual orientation” training for citizens wishing to become foster parents.
“If we have a child or youth who identifies as LGBTQIA+ … then we would want the foster parent to support that,” an employee of the department told the Tribune recently.
“And if that’s not something that an individual feels that they can do, then perhaps being a foster parent isn’t the right choice for them."
The Tribune has also published photographs of the workbook the state uses to instruct Idahoans wanting to become foster parents or adopt. Included in the workbook are dozens of references to woke terminology — “gender fluid,” “same-gender loving,” “pansexual,” “cultural humility,” and the like. A course titled “Sexual Development & Identity” is also included on the department’s website.
“Allowing homosexuals and other sexual deviants to adopt or participate in the foster system is a mistake. Frankly, I believe it amounts to human trafficking. And to find that in Idaho, they are not only rejecting normal Christians with traditional sensibilities, but actively seeking out people who believe in this gender stuff. I was absolutely stunned,” the person said.
So, sharing one's personal experience is to be considered trying to "convert" people? No one's allowed to discuss the CHOICE to stop a behavior or identity. Absolutely ridiculous. No wonder most people hold the viewpoint that people must act on their urges...Grech’s message is simple: A decade ago, he experienced conversion to Christ, realized that sexual acts outside of male/female marriage are a “sin,” and freely chose to give up the homosexual life he had been living.
After a Christian charity worker who walked away from homosexuality following his conversion to Christ offered his powerful testimony on a radio show, law enforcement threatened him with possible jail time and a stiff fine for allegedly breaching his country’s law banning LGBT “conversion practices.”
The Maltese government’s action against Matthew Grech, 33, is believed to be the first of its kind and is being viewed as a test case by free speech groups and Christian organizations that aim to protect the rights of former gays and lesbians to tell their stories and live freely without harassment from LGBT groups. Some of the latter assert that Christian teaching on marriage and debate surrounding LGBT lifestyles must be treated as criminal offenses.
If convicted, he faces up to five months in prison and/or a fine of 5,000 Euros.
Grech is one of a not insignificant number of former homosexuals and transgender men and women who face increasing opposition from media and government to telling their often heroic stories to the public.
“I was shocked when the police called me out of the blue and said they were summoning me for interrogation,’” Grech recounted in the CLC press release.
“The outlet I appeared on is a very small and emerging free-speech platform in Malta, and I didn’t think it would be treated so seriously by the Malta Gay Rights Movement to the extent that I could be criminalized for telling my Christian testimony,” Grech said. “It shows how determined they are to stamp out any debate or voice on these issues. I was worried for myself and what my family would think, as nothing like this has happened to me before.
I am determined, however, to raise awareness on the danger and harm that ‘conversion therapy’ bans are and will cause, not just to churches and society in Malta, but all around the world.”
“I am committed to keep sharing my testimony because I don’t want other men and women to go through what I went through in my upbringing and adolescence,” he continued. “I don’t want them to be victims of unwanted sexual feelings. I don’t want them to be robbed of the biblical side of the story around sex, sexuality and marriage. I don’t want the masses to believe ‘born gay, cannot change,’ and allow that to go unchallenged.”
“If we don’t act now, more countries will introduce such bans as if they were a charitable noble cause that is saving lives and works for the common good, when they are tyrannical, draconian and will achieve the opposite of what they set out to,” Grech warned.
“The ‘conversion therapy’ ban is creating an ideological domino effect. The lobbies and gay rights movements behind them take a single moral viewpoint around human sexuality, and enforce it on the entire population. It causes legal confusion, and it discourages journalists from exploring the other side of the story,” he explained.
“Many of us in ex-LGBT ministry are experiencing an increasing silencing from the general press and media, and are noticing a decreasing public interest in the exploration of the ‘ex-LGBT’ reality, which we believe is driven by the intimidation and fear these bans are creating.”

What’s at stake
“If Matthew is convicted, men and women seeking change in their lives, to leave behind patterns of behavior which make them unhappy, will be forced underground,” said Andrea Williams, CLC’s chief executive. “We will seek men and women who are seeking help in Malta silenced, fined and put in jail.”
“Matthew Grech’s life was powerfully transformed when he became a Christian and learnt what the Bible teaches us about who we are. It was in his new-found faith that he found his identity and freedom,” Williams noted.
“The actions of the police are deeply concerning, and we have not seen anything like this before,” Williams said. “We face no alternative but to fight for justice for Matthew and to ensure no one else experiences what he had.”
“Freedoms of speech, conscience and religion are being attacked,” declared Dr. Mike Davidson, chairman of the International Federation of Therapeutic Counseling (IFTCC), an organization that aims “to promote a caring, nonjudgmental environment where people who choose to move away from their unwanted feelings and behaviors can find the support they’re seeking,” according to its website.It is vital to win this case not just for people in Malta, but for Christian freedoms and the freedom to leave homosexuality and unwanted same-sex attraction across the world.
“The fact is that therapeutic and counseling choice is a fundamental right.”
Grech will stand trial on February 3 at the Court of Magistrates in Valletta.Governments promoting monocultural viewpoints – this idea that sexual orientation is inborn and unchangeable, and that gender is unrelated to biological sex – are denying those unwilling to identify as LGBT the right to leave identities and practices no longer relevant to them. This is a human rights issue. Without ideological diversity in any life issue, democracy is denied checks and balances and descends to totalitarianism”
The persecution of Grech coincides with the Maltese government effort to stiffen its already draconian 2016 law banning “conversion therapy” by amending it to also outlaw “the publishing, advertising, displaying, distributing, referral and circulation of any material promoting the practice,” according to the Times of Malta.
How people fell for the lie sex = sexuality by propagandists is mind-bogglingly incredible.An article saying children are sexual beings from babies. The UK Labour MP who tried to antagonise a woman for defending women and children safeguards is a part of it
And that is one of the reasons men suddenly realise they are transwomen when they are charged for sex-related crimes.Well they did barely get arrested last summer. Can't imagine theyll have a good experience once in prison with men doing life sentences w no parole and no incentive for good behavior/avoiding additional convictions. Give it time.
The estranged wife of a transgender woman who was convicted of raping two women when she was a man has accused the “monster” of “bulls—-ing” authorities to get “an easier life in prison” — after she was sent to a female prison to await sentencing.
Shonna Graham, 31, told the Daily Mail that she had only known Isla Bryson, also 31, as shaven-headed Adam Graham, the name he was still using in 2020 during a court appearance for the r*pe of two women.
“When I saw the photos of him dressed as a woman with a blond wig and pink Lycra leggings, I fell out of bed laughing,” she said of the “monster” rapist.
Never once did he say anything to me about feeling he was in the wrong body or anything.”
“His gender transition is a sham for attention and an easier life in prison,” said Graham, without using her husband’s preferred new pronoun.
She is allowed to serve her time in a women’s prison because of a controversial new law in Scotland that allows someone to legally change their gender without the need for a medical diagnosis of gender dysphoria.
This woman is caling out what we already knew...
A lot of well known Twitter accounts are commenting on the above story too. That is good - international followers will see the story that aren't covered normally on mainstream TV.This woman is caling out what we already knew...

The women's rights campaigner Kelly Jay Keen challenges Owen Jones extremely well in the following clip!The sped up section to make him sound like Donald Duck is funny, but the message from The Guardian's Owen Jones is a masked threat.
A white, privileged gay man ascribes "anger and fury and bile" to opponents. We can do the same, project our own insecurities/ create distraction tactics.
What does he *personally* stand to gain by attacking (most likely) real women? What would Sigmund Freud say?

Owen Jones, your deep hatred and resentment of women stemming from your childhood must be so extreme that you support MEN no matter what the circumstances.
It is a very easy way to disguise your repulsion for these second-rate (and lower in attractiveness scale) men - you must be pretending you support them so they leave YOU alone .
You are a very effeminate man and therefore very unlikely to be able to defend yourself against trans-hulk- women in confined physical spaces. You must see real women as being stronger than you.
It must be great being highly paid for doing what you love.
My according to you "bile and fury and hatred" has resulted from seeing too many abused women and girls, double standards and unfairness towards us in multiple ways throughout my 50 years on this Earth. These transwomen are trying to take what is good from being a woman and hold onto all the male privileges at the same time.
Enough is enough. The guilt trips don't work on us anymore.
