As if all of that weren't enough, it isn't just our families who are being dismantled and the size of the world population that is under attack to reduce it to pre-Columbian levels of 300 - 500 million. Now it is the very nature of humanity that is under serious attack.
Efforts are mounting to launch a massive attack on the God-given, natural and normal sexuality of humans. Success in that will be achieved by making the abnormal the norm by which all else is measured.[*]

A media boom is under way on behalf of transgendered men and women. Last week, for instance, A&E's "Investigative Reports" ran a segment, "The Transgender Revolution," quoting an activist who called it the fourth great rights movement of our era. The Los Angeles Times weighed in with two days' worth of long, sympathetic reports. One account featured an enormous bald man with a long beard who had been born a woman, and a husband and wife who are both undergoing sex-change operations. They will stay married, but the husband will become the wife and vice versa.
It appears that the label of "unpredictable psychopathology" that University of Minnesota bioethicist Carl Elliott attached to the unhealthy desire to have a sex-change operation is correct. However, there are also true medical causes of psychological and physical aberrations that should greatly concern us
|Sex Chromosome Aberrations|
(Turner's Syndrome, Bonnevie-Ullrich Syndrome)
|1:3,000 live female births|
|The XXX Syndrome (The "Super Female")||? rare|
|Klinefelter's Syndrome (XXY)||1:500 to 1:1,000 live male births|
|The XYY Syndrome||? A few males were found in institutions for criminals with subnormal I.Q.|
|Intersex States (True Hermaphroditism)||? Extremely rare in humans (less then 500 reported cases in the whole world)|
|Pseudo Hermaphroditism is not a chromosomal defect. It is due to endocrinal imbalances during gestation and is curable with varying degrees of success through treatment with hydrocortisone and other similar preparations.||Dr. Warne cites an incidence rate of 1:4,500 live births, while inter-sex advocates claim an incidence rate of 1:1,500 live births|
|Androgen Insensitivity Syndrome (AIS)||1:20,000 to 1:60,000 male and female births|
In human beings, hermaphroditism is an extremely rare sex anomaly in which gonads for both sexes are present, in which external genitalia may show traits of both sexes, and in which the chromosomes show male-female mosaicism (where one individual possesses both the male XY and female XX chromosome pairs). Choice of sex must be made at birth, usually on the basis of the condition of the external genitalia (i.e., which sex organs predominate), after which surgery is performed to remove the gonads of the opposite sex. The remaining genitalia are then reconstructed to resemble those of the chosen sex.
Although there have been some attempts by gay advocacy researchers to have society accept their claim that homosexuality is genetically pre-determined, not one of those claims has withstood objective scrutiny.
Similar claims have been made by advocates of bisexuality in humans (the preference of an individual to have sexual intercourse with members of either sex), but it appears that not one of those claims has been confirmed by a reputable researcher.
There is a remarkable dearth of solid data regarding true bisexuality in humans. It is not so much a lack of data as it is that the data that exist are being either censored or obfuscated. Some medical writers cloud the issue by making statements such as the following:
SEX differences occur on a number of independent dimensions. Genetic sex, or the organization of the "sex chromosomes," is often thought to indicate the true sex, with males having one X and one Y, while females have two Xs. However, about one in 400 people are neither XX nor XY, but have less common combinations, such as XO (a single X), XXY, or even different combinations in different cells within the same individual, for instance some cells XX and some cells XY. Association for Humanistic Psychology
Consider the propaganda value of that statement. It contains not a single false item of data. However, it leads the innocent reader to conclude that perhaps as many as 1 in 400 people are by nature bisexual. Nothing could be
farther from the truth, although it is true that about 1 in 400 are born with a genetic abnormality. However, virtually all of those abnormalities relate to and cause all kinds of human conditions, but virtually none of them have anything to do with bisexuality, and few, if any, have anything to do with bisexual orientation with respect to sexual preferences.
In the whole world, very few instances are on record of cases of true hermaphroditism or bisexuality.
True hermaphroditism, although rare, has been reported in nearly 500 patients. (P&S Medical Review: August 1996, Vol.3, No.2
Note that the report in the P&S Medical Review doesn't identify whether the "nearly 500 patients" relate to a given hospital, city, country or the whole world population. However, if you read the article, you'll find that the scope of the discussion involves all of the world's population, and that the author of that article did a very thorough review of the literature.
Dr. Garry Warne, head of the Endocrinology Department at Royal Children's Hospital in Melbourne, Australia, attending an international workshop on inter-sex disorders:
Male and female embryos are indistinguishable until 42 days' gestation when 'SRY' -- the gene that releases the initial signal in determining cell fate -- is switched on to assign the sex of a child.
"But about two-third hermaphrodites do not have this important sex determining gene, due to some unknown reasons," Dr Warne said, adding one in 4,500 children around the world is born with such ambiguous sex. (Marriage Between Close Relations Increases Risk Of Hermaphroditism, Feb. 1, 1999 - Press Trust of India)
Nevertheless, a considerably lower figure for the number of children born with the defect was mentioned by someone else at the conference.
...India has the highest number of babies with indeterminate sex, Dr Gupta said, adding each year about 40 such cases are treated in AIIMS. (Ibid.)
The article doesn't state where Drs. Warne and Gupta obtained their information. Without any doubt, what they both are referring to are cases of both true- and pseudohermaphroditism. Treating 40 children per year could involve children that were born in previous years, but it appears that no more than 40 children per year are born with that condition, whether the cause of the abnormality involves a genetic abnormality (in two-third of the cases according the Dr. Warne) or whether it is due to endocrinal imbalance during gestation of the children.
Given that according to Dr. Gupta the highest incidence rate of hermaphroditism is in India and that his figure is that much closer to what was reported in the article from the P&S Medical Review, it appears to be safe to assume that the total number of cases according to Dr. Gupta is in the order of no more than about 300 new cases per year in the whole world.
I prefer to take the word of the author of the article in the P&S Medical Review. That article is most certainly based on a thorough review of many medical researchers in the field of inter-sex disorders. Of course it is quite likely that Dr. Warne may be speaking of all cases of true hermaphroditism plus the cases of pseudo hermaphroditism plus the cases of transvestitism, the latter being a psychiatric condition that some consider incurable and unalterable, while others report a better than 60 percent success rate in their attempts to cure it.
Pseudo-hermaphroditism is claimed by some to occur as often as once in every 1,500 births. It appears to be unclear what its cause may be other than the often cited and handy diagnosis of Androgen Insensitivity Syndrome, which occurs with an incidence rates of 1:20,000 while others estimated the incidence rate of that to be in the order of 1:60,000.
It would seem that the large disparity between readily identifiable but relatively rare causes and comparatively high incidence rates due to indeterminable causes, that are claimed by some to be involved as often as once in every 1,500 births, will be the subject of much discussion for many years to come. However, it seems to be somewhat irrational to redefine human nature on the basis of someone's whim, by re-assigning him to a given sex. In cases of genetic abnormalities that cause hermaphroditism, no matter how radical a sex-change operation is undertaken, that will not by one iota change the genetic condition that caused the problem in the first place. There appears to be no evidence to indicate that people who have had a sex change operation are on average any happier after the operation.
Should we put our trust in medical experts who consider people afflicted with hermaphroditism as patients, or should we put it in psychologists and psychotherapists who have an agenda of manufacturing victims to further, as Dr. Tana Dineen (author of Manufacturing Victims) describes, a goal of expanding their detrimental influence in society with little more than mercenary intentions of expanding the psychology industry and to create a market for it.
They may not truly be a superstitious bunch of charlatans, although all evidence seems to indicate that most of them are, but they most certainly are obsessed with promoting superstitions.
Can anyone trust a profession in which 97 percent of its members who attended a conference in London, England, a few years ago, stated that they firmly believe that there is such a thing as satanic ritual abuse of children? The evidence proves that there isn't such a thing, but the psychologists want us to believe the superstitions they promote and that they appear to believe themselves. That is not merely the manufacturing of victims but the manufacturing of witch hunts and now they are expanding their field of endeavors into the nature of human sexuality and thereby human nature itself.
"Theologues," too, become involved in the discussion of intersex states. Consider this one:
If Jesus was genetically male, he had to have had a Y chromosome. My "personal curiosity" is the possibility that Jesus may have been genetically female (which is possible if one considers parthenogenesis) and gonadally male (which is also possible). From a metaphysical standpoint, this would be a marvelous way of incorporating the totality of creation into one being and would force the artificial barriers we place between men and women to dissolve.
A Polydimensional Continuum,
By Roberta M. Meehan, PhD
Christian? Some will say she is. Intersex advocate? Yes. An opponent of absolute moral standards and traditional religious doctrine? Most definitely! Artificial barriers? What is she talking about? There never were any barriers until the feminists suddenly claimed they saw them.
The strongest force seeking to destroy traditional religions is feminism. Radical feminists have little use for religion or churches as they are, but they do not leave the churches whose doctrines and liturgies they find objectionable. They work within to change the churches so that the final product will bear little resemblance to Christianity.
Robert H. Bork
The concern about how feminists work to alter and redefine established religion, expressed by Robert H. Bork in Slouching Towards Gomorrah Modern Liberalism and American Decline, requires to be expanded, to include not only feminists but as well other enemies of the traditional nuclear family and religions, not only pro-gay activists, as identified in The Charter Revolution but, as shown in the article at Townhall.com and also by Roberta M. Meehan, also the advocates of bisexuality, androgyny, and of indiscriminate sex-change operations.
It follows that when the social engineers who want to normalize the traditional nuclear family down to the common denominator of social aberrations, who want to change traditional religions along with that, and who want to redefine human nature by reconstructing human sexuality itself, then their final product will bear little resemblance to humanity. That will be the end of humanity.
As to the few hundred true hermaphrodites in the world, why don't we just let them be? God caused them to be what they are.
