System failure: Meet the Browsers

ABC/YAHOO News, that great champion of non-comformist people want you to meet the Browsers. The husband is a woman who was born a male and the wife is a man who was born a female. And YAHOO thinks this is awesome like breaking a Guinness World Record. And the news whos got an even bigger kick that the two un-re-trans-gendered people are raising children! How exciting and non-conformist! What a neat novelty for a 20/20 program.

bowser-wowserMeet the Bowser family. Bianca and Nick Bowser live with their sons Kai, 3, and Pax, 17 months, in Louisville, Kentucky, where no one knows their family secret, at least, until now.
“We fit … the basic definition of what a transgender person is,” Nick Bowser told ABC News’ “20/20.”
“But we are man and woman,” Bianca Bowser told “20/20.”
“That is the difference, so our children do not see us as transgender people,” Nick Bowser, 27, said. “We are mommy and daddy.” Bianca Bowser, 32, grew up as a boy named Jason, and Nick was born as a girl named Nicole. They work in Louisville at the nightclub “Play,” where Nick is the manager and Bianca is a performer. Before they met, the two grew up in Georgia.

Here’s the problem. What makes this twosome any different than two animals who raise children? The big inference here is that no matter who you are, you can raise children. Of course, never mind how the children will turn out, this is more about trying to legitimize the swirled-out identities of the “parents”. This anomaly proves nothing except that it is an anomaly.

Animals have raised children before. According to The Week, children have been raised by wolves, goats, monkeys, feral cats and dogs. However, the children all seemed to ape (no pun intended) the inhuman habits of their “parents”. Seeing this, humans took the human children away from the animals and raised them with other humans. You know people just like them. Children don’t know anything about the warped sexual and gender problems of their parents. Just like the kids raised by the animals the danger is that they will end up mimicking their gender confusion thus placing them at a distinct social disadvantage with other human children whose parents were not gender confused.

“The parents know that there are even more difficult hurdles ahead, especially when they have to explain to their children who mommy and daddy are.”

Our resolve: just because the world wants to go stark, raving mad doesn’t mean we have to co-sign it. Some of us have to remain sane in case others come to themselves and want out of the problems they have created.

Nine fallen ‘exgay’ leaders seek spotlight with therapy ban alliance

This week  Time Magazine published an awfully lazy, undocumented, unsubstantiated,  patently biased article about nine former “exgay leaders” who are all now working for the gay establishment. The article is full of the type of generalized, cut and paste conjecture that liberals have become known for when addressing sexuality issues. Writer Maya Rhodan really ought to petition Time to scrub this article from their site and restore the sacred white space to its original purity, but I doubt that will happen. As a black woman Rhodan should know how deep racism and discrimination can run in this country and its sad that she would write this and neglect to do even basic homework. But I guess a paycheck is more important that truth, huh sistah?  At any rate, this really isn’t about the shoddy article, but about the people mentioned in it and their unchallenged claims.

Its said of the fallen nine that they all now vociferously oppose so called “conversion therapy” or whatever dubious name gay activists and their religious left allies have dubbed it.

The nine are all white men and women. Yvette Schneider, Brad Allen, Darlene Bogle, Michael Bussee, Catherine fallen nineChapman, Jeremy Marks, Bill Prickett, Tim Rymel, and John Smid.  Most have connections to the former Exodus organization which fell ingloriously into oblivion last year. Some have been “apologizing” mainly because gay activists force them to do so if they want to have positive blogs written about them.  They’ve now formed some type of reality show alliance to help ban therapy for sexual identity issues in all 50 states.

Thankfully, I was never  part of this inner workings of Exodus. Particularly after Alan Chambers rose to “power”, Exodus trended 99.8% white and he kept it that way so I didnt personally know any of these people. Its rather funny that none of them are apologizing for Exodus’ racist exclusion of blacks in leadership.  I have, over the course of the years seen them be seduced by the lie, fall, wallow and then relish themselves in it.  Its a predictable outcome. Believing a lie always ends the same for every person who embraces it.  These nine are no exception and certainly not worthy of any celebration because of their failures. They are to be sincerely pitied.

Some have really went to excesses not only just emerging from their Exodus/exgay experience with bitterness but to live an embittered life which seems to drive them to do and say whatever it takes to satisfy their new gay rights comrades.  Isn’t that just trading one enslaving brokenness for another?

  • Michael Bussee claims he was a “founder” of Exodus but the recorded facts prove he was little more than a volunteer who assisted in contacting people to come to the first meeting. But his bitterness and the insatiable desire for the homosexual movement to stamp out any “exgay” embers, made him an attractive manipulation tool. And his own failure to RESOLVE his sexual dysfunctions and discipline himself like EVERY believer is commanded to do in 1 Thessalonians 4:1-7 says that perhaps he only had a bystander type of religious experience which could not sustain him when temptations challenged him. I also wonder when Bussee will ever apologize for his racism while in Exodus?
  • The same can be said of John Smid. For years he followed company policy even though he knew (according to him) he was contributing to a lie but for some reason he held on and dutifully promised people they could be “straight”. It was only a matter of time before the insistent homosexuals beat down his door, dismantled his weak defenses, exploited his fragile self worth and convinced him that such beliefs are altogether impossible. Their solution? Trade your professional exgay shill status and for a professional gay shill status.  The rest is sad history.

I was familiar perhaps moreso with Yvette Cantu before she married. Though we never met, I noticed her more for some unexplained reason.  She always seemed to be confident, articulate and stable.  Her book Never Not Broken chronicles a family incident that led her down a bizarre path and into the dark world of soothsayers, mystic guides and mythological beliefs. How ironic that the blind guides she sought out to help her in her family tragedy led her into shipwreck.

Yvette Cantu Schneider descends into the abyss of her own psyche after her young daughter’s leukemia diagnosis. Desperate for relief from ceaseless panic, she sees a psychotherapist who introduces her to guided imagery meditation to heal trauma. Over the course of her daughter’s 28-month treatment, Cantu Schneider encounters in meditation, animals, goddesses and other guides who show her that it is the wounded feminine within her that pushed her to find meaning and acceptance in a rigid religious structure and to become a spokesperson for controversial socio-political causes. As Cantu Schneider struggles to heal from difficult events from her childhood, the abuses and hypocrisies of religious leaders, and the effects of her own denial of the feminine divine, she discovers her true self. In the end, she finds that life’s healing power is that we are all never not broken.”

That’s just plain creepy. The irony of it all begs an explanation. Schneider gets therapy to sort out her issues with the tragic illness of her child, but wants to deny another parent the right to seek out therapy for their child to sort out issues with sexual identity.

NO CREDIBILITY

These fallen ex-leaders lost credibility because they couldnt maintain their own personal discipline as Christians. Thats the real story. Now they want to gays to grant them redemption by slicing at the hopes of other people who want help to live in peace. Their failures are just that. Their failures. It would be much more respectable to just admit you failed and then talk about your own failures without trying to slime others who haven’t failed.

Anne Paulk who heads the Restored Hope Network wrote:  “The nine individuals who came together to try to eliminate teens’ opportunity to find counseling for unwanted same-sex attractions, yet did not go through good professional Christian counseling are writing responses on our page. We have heard from 3 of them: Darlene Bogle, Tim Rymel and now John Smid. I knew Darlene at the end of her experience of leaving homosexuality and noticed an impending return back in California many years ago. Tim is a sweet guy who left homosexuality at the same ministry as I in California under the leadership of John Smid. Tim led worship for a number of events with the ministry. He married, had children and then returned to the gay life and a homosexual relationship. The history with John Smid is much more extensive. He married my roommate and was married a bit longer than I, divorcing his lovely wife last year for another man.  He also ran a ministry that was actually brought up on lawsuits related to harm. So perhaps he should not have been running interventions and family therapy when he himself was not clinically trained. Could he be desiring to ban whatever he was misusing?”

None of the nine ever substantiate their claims with any specific information.  None ever speak of an authentic personal experience with Jesus. Its as if they appeared out of nowhere and signed some exgay right to work contract. None of them ever cite where they actually engaged in the type of counseling they are seeking to restrict.   Eventually all of them will die and have to face God on the other side of death. We will see if God will accept their apologies as legitimate.
