THE HUMAN AGENDA: Conversations about Sexual Orientation & Gender Identity with author Joe Wenke
Despite the progress in the movement toward marriage equality, the LGBTQI community continues to face difficult, and often heartbreaking, odds. Gay and lesbian youth are four times more likely than their peers to attempt suicide. Nearly half of transgender teens have contemplated suicide and a quarter has made an attempt, according to The Trevor Project. Adoption equality and second-parent rights are still blocked in many states, and legislators in Oklahoma and Alabama have tried to introduce laws that make it legal to discriminate against gays and lesbians. Perhaps most disturbing of all, homicide rates for transgender women account for 45 percent of all hate murders, according to GLAAD.
Joe Wenke thinks there is a better way. By opening up discussions about our shared humanity and experiences, Wenke is getting people to talk with, not at, each other and leaving the rancor and divisiveness behind, beginning with his book THE HUMAN AGENDA: Conversations about Sexual Orientation & Gender Identity. For this collection of frank conversations about growing up, coming out, finding your identity, family, marriage, parenting, careers and so much more.

Pedophilia the next 'sexual-rights' revolution? We are going to talk about what may be the greatest moral crisis To date: Once considered taboo, psychologists are beginning to walk down the same path LGBT activists established more than 50 years ago, insisting that pedophilia is an inborn “sexual orientation,” not a learned sexual behavior. If people are born with a sexual attraction to minors, the argument goes, their “orientation” should be accepted as normative and not stigmatized.
Your sexual orientation is YOUR business, however I must admit I did NOT realize that a person's sexual choice would leave me feeling puzzled and here's why...LISTEN IN!

When 1976 Olympic decathlon champion Bruce Jenner, a real hunk of a muscular man, came out 39 years later with the statement “for all intents and purposes, I am a woman” in a rather spectacular TV interview, he also emphasized the mysteries of the brain. Jenner admitted that his brain is more female than it is male. Why? Is it because of a wound? Is Satan playing games? Is it because of messed-up neurons and bad electrical connections? We don’t have a clue—yet. He was just a very young boy when he discovered he was more comfortable in his mother’s and sister’s dresses. Jenner says: “It just made me feel good.” He actually began transgender reassignment therapy in the 1980’s which included hormones, nose surgery, and hair removal. He then changed his mind.
We are just beginning to solve the great mysteries of the brain. It’s a very complex maze. There are 20,000 to 25,000 genes in the human genome and about half of them work in our brain “system,” whatever that is. Our famous upright ancestor Lucy of about 3.2 million years ago had a brain of 600 cubic centimeters. The next “human” (Homo Habilis) had 900 cubic centimeters to work with. Our current brother Homo Sapiens has a magnificent 1,400 cubic centimeters in order to tangle with the universe. The brain seems to be a very flexible conglomeration of electrical switches and breakers. Our billions of brain cells somehow communicate with all parts of the body, if things are working right,

So much for all those who swore up and down that Michael Sam's orientation would somehow be a distraction to the Rams, to his teammates...hogwash.
Compare Michael Sam's off field behaivor to that of Johnny Manziel, a Hetrosexual (as far as we know).
Johnny Manziel is making the headlines every other day, in some club, with party women, and most recently rolling up a dollar bill in Casino bathroom!!
On the other hand not so much as a peep from Michael Sams, the gay football player, who unlike Manziel, actually listened to the advise of the team that hired him and is now keeping low profile...sorry, but that's 'character'.

Join us Tuesday, June 2nd at 11:30 am est as we chat about Workplace "stuff": Something that u find frustrating with author Dr. Kim Kirkland.
In the workplace, it's only a matter of time before we misstep, mis-communicate, misunderstand, or inadvertently denigrate someone else's culture, values, traditions, customs, religion, or feelings. Many employees are offended by compliments on their appearance; by water-cooler conversations about religion, politics, or sexual orientation; by an unwelcome touch on the shoulder, arm, or back; or by any cultural transgression-intentional or not. Even some of the smallest infractions can create anxiety or anger among coworkers. While most of these issues are framed as harassment or discrimination, most likely they are the result of a miscommunication potentially grounded in cultural differences.
We spend 40+ hours a week with our coworkers, but these professional relationships suffer when we are unable to talk to one another or give each other permission to make mistakes-which is the only way to gain a better understanding of cultural differences. This type of understanding doesn't come from the company's EEO or diversity leader, and it doesn't come from the organization's code of conduct or human resources. In order to bridge this diversity divide, we must begin to communicate with one another. stuff offers practical strategies for dealing with "stuff"-the things we find frustrating-and gives organizational professionals permission to fondly reach for the term "stuff" when identifying and addressing employee conflict, rather than mislabeling the offending behaviors as harassment and discrimination.
This fun, easy-to-follow guide is a must for any professional who hopes to champion civility, non-discrimination, equity, and justice in the workplace.
SCRIPTURE ENCOUNTERS Radio Show
Why are the Scriptures so vital to spiritual growth? They are living and active (Hebrews 4:12-13), give freedom (James 1:25), make truth known (Psalm 19:7-11), and equip for service (2 Timothy 3:16-17). All this and more is true, but perhaps the most important reason is based on the simple description that the Bible is “God’s Word.” As Timothy Ward says, “to encounter the words of Scripture is to encounter God in action” . Every time we come to the Bible, we can meet and know God. Engaging the Bible is a relational process, the primary means by which God engages the believer. When it comes down to it, isn’t having a deep, meaningful, and engaging relationship with God what you want in life? It’s what we were created for.
