THE SERVANT GENERAL
THE CULTURE OF LIFE
May 28, 2016
In the Western world, deviancy has become mainstream. One
sorry manifestation of this is in the growing number of genders
being accepted by society. There used to be just two sexes--male
and female. Now the number grows each day. Facebook lists
58 genders! All this would be funny if it were not so tragic.
The assault on faith, family and life intensifies. The enemy
forces of liberals, progressives, secular humanists, radical
feminists, reproductive health advocates, gender ideologues
and population controllers are all-out in overturning God’s
design. This is truly diabolical work.

$250,000 for not using in NYC
NEW YORK CITY, May 27, 2016 (LifeSiteNews) – The New
York City Human Rights Commission has released a list of 31
different terms of gender expression employers must use or
face $250,000 fines, all but two of them naming various forms
Perkins, head of the Family Research Council, was quick to
link the list to President Barack Obama’s recent edict
to public school systems requiring them to de-gender their
washrooms and change rooms. “This is political
correctness run wild. Where does the President’s
bathroom edict go? This is it," Perkins told LifeSiteNews.
New York City’s Human Rights Commission first announced
it was including gender variations
under its anti-discriminatory protection in
December and earlier this month detailed the offenses for
which employers or customers could draw fines up to $250,000.
The rollout continues with the release of a list of names
for 31 different genders one must draw from for an employee
if that person so desires. The fines go as high as $125,000
for misnaming a person’s gender intentionally, and $250,000
for doing so “maliciously.”
But the Human Rights Commission secretary, Seth Hoy, told
the Daily Caller that “Accidentally misusing
a transgender person’s preferred pronoun is not a violation
of the law and will not result in a fine.”
Unhelpfully, the New York City Human Rights Commission does
not list trans pronouns in its most recent dictum. But its
list of nouns alone would need several nights of memorization.
Some are familiar, such as “drag queen” and “transgender.”
Others are more obscure, such as “agender,” “femme
queen” and “hijra.” Some, such as “gender
bender” and “gender blender” are new enough
to have escaped even the notice of the University of California
Berkeley’s glossary of LGBT terms, and, unfortunately
for Manhattan employers, the HRC provides no definitions.
UC Berkeley provides this useful table for the pronoun-curious:
FRC’s Perkins warned that, “At some point, businesses
will have to push back because this will become very costly.
In terms of hiring and public accommodation, gender is defined
solely by the individual -- not by biology or medical and
And not only businesses should be alarmed. “Imagine
subjecting a church pre-school or religious charity to these
rules. A finding of noncompliance could financially destroy
them,” said Perkins.
Pope Benedict XVI condemned the philosophy behind such regulations,
in his 2012 Christmas greetings to the Roman Curia, as an
assault on the Judeo-Christian understanding of humanity.
"According to this philosophy, sex is no longer a given
element of nature, that man has to accept and personally make
sense of: it is a social role that we choose for ourselves,
while in the past it was chosen for us by society. The profound
falsehood of this theory and of the anthropological revolution
contained within it is obvious."
Pope Benedict continued, "When the freedom to be creative
becomes the freedom to create oneself, then necessarily the
Maker himself is denied and ultimately man too is stripped
of his dignity as a creature of God, as the image of God at
the core of his being."
