Stand Firm : "Bishop Robinson to meet with Dallas Transgender Advocates

By Kelli Busey
November 18, 2008

"Stand Firm" is a Internet publisher of "Traditional Anglicism in America", host to Episcopalian Church web sites and location of interviews with The Rt. Rev. Jack Leo Iker Bishop of the Episcopalian Diocese of Fort Worth which voted November 15, 2008 to realign with the Argentineans Southern Cone, becoming the fourth such "traditional" diocese to do so in a long-running debate over gay relationships and other Issues.

In a recently published "Stand Firm" article Gene Robinson to Meet With Dallas Transgender Activists the lead paragraph linked this blogs press release announcing the progressive event "Dallas Transgender Advocates and Allies Wellcome Bishop Robinson" to language I have the unpleasant duty to edit when it appears on my blog.

These disrespectful and hateful comments by the "Stand Firm" readers have been left unedited and intact in close proximity to the the interview of Bishop Iker.


"Don’t give me links like that anymore! Geesh.... Had to look at strangely dressed women(?) and see a headline for queer news before I could get out. WARN ME.
I wasn’t ready to “bravely step forward” like Gene.... "]

"If Robinson is not a real Bishop as many would argue then no “border crossing” occured. To argue that a “border crossing” occured is to argue that Robinson IS a bishop which we all know is silly. He is just some low hanging fruit."

"And what’s absolutely amazing to me is that homosexuals and transgender folks actually consider themselves normal."


Kelli's note. "Stand Firm" stands alone.

Laura Ingram and Fox TV at WAR(warbeeaatch)

Laura Ingram and Fox Tv at war (WARbeeaatch)

By Kelli Busey
Febuary 9,2008

Laura Ingraham in this video broadcasted on FOX TV attempts to bully and intimidate CODE PINK'S Medea Bejamin. This defies all standards of broadcast decency and the principles of free speach. Laura Ingraham is in the absence of armed men demanding silence, is by default the enemy of free speach and an America where we respect the right of others to have and express an opposing opinion. As someone who served in the Armed forces I can attest she is not speaking for me nor a majority of service members.

I would hope Laura Ingram would have a more open mind to the Transgender community. According to the WIkapeda, she has involved herself with purposefully harming innocent people by ingaging in Anti-homosexual activism.
According to David Brock (in his 2002 book Blinded by the Right), Ingraham, while writing for The Dartmouth Review in the mid-1980s, once attended meetings of a gay student organization for the purpose of publicly outing them in the newspaper. Ingraham secretly taped a meeting of the Gay Students Association, then published the transcript, identifying students by name and calling them "sodomites." According to Ingraham, however, she attended the meetings to report in the newspaper how tuition money was being spent.

A decade later, on February 23, 1997, however, Ingraham wrote an essay in The Washington Post in which she announced significant changes in how she views gays and lesbians. This was motivated primarily by her experience with one of her brothers rumored to have been estranged from her for a time after the gay student group controversy, as he cared for his ailing partner:

"In the ten years since I learned one of my brothers was gay, my views and rhetoric about homosexuals have been tempered... because I have seen him and his partner of 14 years, lead their lives with dignity, fidelity and courage.

Susan Stanton's lonely transition

In a article posted on Tampa December 31, 2007 Susan stanton laments that here reception by the LGBT community has been less than welcoming.

"Susan has met hundreds of other people like her. She was among the gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender people lobbying for a law that would make it illegal for others to discriminate against them.
But Susan has said all along that she's not like other transgender people. She feels uncomfortable even looking at some, "like I'm seeing a bunch of men in dresses."
Eventually, she decided it was too early for transgender people to be federally protected. People need more time, more education, she says. "The transgender groups boo me, now, when I speak. Isn't that ironic?
"But I don't blame the human rights groups from separating the transgender people from the protected groups. Most Americans aren't ready for us yet," Susan says. Transgender people need to be able to prove they're still viable workers -- especially in the mainstream.
"The biggest issue against the federal legislation is that politicians think the ladies' rooms will be invaded by guys in drag," Susan says, "instead of someone like me"

News flash Susan. You think like a bigot in a dress, and I as a hard working transgender woman , please note, WORKING, American do not need your approval .

So if you decide that out of default, becuse everyone else is a man in a dress, you parade before the media with HRC's blood money in hand, you have made your life just that more lonesome.

We reject you and anyone other bigots regardless


HRC-Betrayal/ Wheres the OUTRAGE ?

HRC-Betrayal/Wheres the OUTRAGE?

It has only been a few months since HRC abandoned us yet I am seeing the same people who were rejected and humiliated by HRC now fully cooperating in HRC's and Franks effort to complete ownership of the Transgender identity and independence.

The following text is a recount of history. Have we forgotten?

I would like to write about HR2015 and the betrayal of transgender people in 2007.
In April 2007 Barney Franks submitted a House Resolution called ENDA(HR2015).
This bill was co-sponsored by 171 House Representatives. Twenty two of these Representatives were freshman whom had captured previously Republican districts and voiced the support of their constituents and became co-sponsors of HR2015.
HRC endorsed the bill with transgender protections HR(2015)
Nothing up to this time was said about perceived problems by Frank or HRC.

Enter the catholic church with religious and health establishments with homosexual and gender exclusion agendas.

Two weeks before the bill was to move out of the subcommittee for the Education and Labor committee Barney Frank and Speaker Pelosi conducted a "straw poll" behind closed doors. In this poll it was "discovered" that there were not enough votes to pass a transgender inclusive bill.

No representatives from media or Transgender community was present at or witness to the results of this poll.

Barney Frank announced that there was not enough support to include transgender people and the bill would fail.
Mr Frank's bill at most would have only passed the house and not the Senate and was noted by the Bush administration as a bill that would be vetoed in the event that it reached his desk in any form.

Mr Frank said he was submitting a substitute bill HR3685 sexual identity protection only because he was concerned about the freshman democrats from the Carolina's political future because of political fallout by their conservative constituency
HR 3685 removed protection for Transgender people. It also removed compliance requirements from religious and health institutions.

The outrage and outcry from the LGBT community overwhelmed Barney Frank and Speaker Pelosi who were trying to hurry HR3685 thru committee.

Speaker Pelosi relented to the pressure from the LGBT community and allotted two weeks for the Transgender community to undo the damage that Barney Frank had inflected during his 10 year rampage against the transgender community.

At the same time, the largest and most effective LGBT lobby on capitol hill, HRC, published a position that they would not "assent" to a transgender exclusive ENDA but would not oppose it.
This was contrary to the inclusive only position that Joe Solmonese had prostrated to a cheering aduance two weeks prior at the Southern Comfort gathering.

More than 300 National, state and local groups( except HRC ) committed to a position letter sponsored by UNITED ENDA. They called for a ENDA bill that was inclusive for transgendered people.
Barney Frank moved HR3685 thru committee without the support of the LGBT community.

A very Brave Representative Tammy Baldwin gained the approval of Speaker Pelosi to submit a amendment to include transgender people.
Quickly on the heals came a announcement from Barney Frank and Speaker Pelosi.
In unison they professed to have always supported transgender people and would support Tammy Baldwins amendment.

They all knew this amendment would not be voted on when it would be announced by Baldwin that she was going to withdraw the amendment on the pretense that she was hopeing to save the transgender community the damage that would have resulted in a exposure of lack of support. Again a political dirty deed against the transgender community.

They also knew that this is a no lose position.
Should the amendmentbe brought to vote and pass, they would retain the religious right, conservative gay middle class and the medical establishment's support becuse of the simply because a amendmended HR3685 would not pass the senate in any case.

Should the amendment fail they will fall back to their position that they will pursue transgender inclusive bills as soon as the transgender community can "proof we have enough votes"

This is the Betrayal by HRC. Political figures will come and go and some will be revered and some like Frank will be abhorred.

HRC's future depends on its willingness to admit to its complicity in this underhanded hateful action and it's willingness to make amends.
