Please note [except below] the anti-Christian, aberrant friendly Huffington Post’s propaganda version of the funeral end of a man who messed with his created person. Also note the short Moralmatters commentary and related informational links following the political correctness Huffington Post excerpt.
This Moralmatters author eschews the action of even highlighting this Huffington Post piece, as this degenerative news source has become another sordid putrid partner with America’s odoriferous political correctness culture:
Jennifer Gable, Transgender Woman, Presented As Man At Her Funeral – huffington – huffingtonpost.com
“……In a depressing reminder of the times in which we live and how far we still have to go to reach equality for everyone in the LGBT community, a Twin Falls, Idaho, transgender woman was presented as male in an open-casket funeral service this week……..” –http://www.huffingtonpost.com/
One Moralmatters Reader [comment below] has already weighed in on the “transgender issue.” This faithful and avid reader’s comment followed the reported media news about the one reprehensible Houston, Texas lesbian city mayor. Her punitive action was to discriminate against and harass Christian pastors (by) censoring their First Amendment sermons because they were exercising their (free speech) rights of objection over the new ordinance which allowed transgenders to frequent their choice of one gender specific restrooms:
Moralmatters Reader comment:
“Why not develop a resolution?
A transgender has clearly evidenced dissatisfaction with his/her birth gender. A transgender has gone to extreme ends to override nature and ‘switch’ genders. By this extreme action, the transgender has professed alliance with the gender of choice. THEREFORE, the restroom he / she uses must be that of the chosen gender!
If she or he doesn’t feel comfortable using the restroom of the chosen gender, too bad.
What does it reveal about the psyche of the person experiencing discomfort using the bathroom of her / his ‘new’ gender?……….Gender confusion by transgenders must be internally resolved. Imposition upon We The People of laws that offend and outrage is not a moral or Constitutional option.”

18 For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who suppress the truth in unrighteousness, 19 because what may be known of God is manifest in them, for God has shown it to them. 20 For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead, so that they are without excuse, 21 because, although they knew God, they did not glorify Him as God, nor were thankful, but became futile in their thoughts, and their foolish hearts were darkened. 22 Professing to be wise, they became fools, 23 and changed the glory of the incorruptible God into an image made like corruptible man—and birds and four-footed animals and creeping things.
24 Therefore God also gave them up to uncleanness, in the lusts of their hearts, to dishonor their bodies among themselves, 25 who exchanged the truth of God for the lie, and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever. Amen.
26 For this reason God gave them up to vile passions. For even their women exchanged the natural use for what is against nature. 27 Likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust for one another, men with men committing what is shameful, and receiving in themselves the penalty of their error which was due.
28 And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a debased mind, to do those things which are not fitting; 29 being filled with all unrighteousness, sexual immorality,[c] wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, evil-mindedness; they are whisperers, 30 backbiters, haters of God, violent, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, 31 undiscerning, untrustworthy, unloving, unforgiving,[d] unmerciful; 32 who, knowing the righteous judgment of God, that those who practice such things are deserving of death, not only do the same but also approve of those who practice them. – Romans 1:18-31 – Christian New Testament Scripture – NKJV – https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Romans+1%3A18-31&version=NKJV

Houston’s Lesbian Mayor Moves to Control Pastors’ Sermons – astresistance.com
“The city of Houston has been taken over by the Gaystapo and its homosexual leader Mayor Annise Parker. It wasn’t enough to elect a self-proclaimed lesbian as the mayor of the city. The City Council, in an 11-6 vote, has now shoved the gay agenda done the throats of the people of Houston and those who visit the city in one of the most absurd and ominous laws ever written.” – http://lastresistance.com/7862/houstons-lesbian-mayor-moves-control-pastors-sermons/#2Bkr0MLsLe0kSmoR.99
Still More in reference to the above article:
Please note the one article excerpt which relates that Christ condemned homosexuality:
……….One of the most common arguments made in support of homosexuality is that Jesus Christ did not explicitly condemn the practice. Supposedly, since Jesus never stated specifically: “Homosexuality is a sin,” then His failure to denounce the lifestyle can be interpreted to mean that He approved of it. This reasoning is riddled with error.
……..Finally, it must be considered that Jesus did, in fact, speak against homosexuality. On numerous occasions, Jesus condemned the sins of adultery (Matthew 19:18), sexual immorality (Matthew 19:9) and fornication (Matthew 15:19). These terms describe any type of sexual intercourse that is not within the confines of a marriage ordained by God. Jesus then proceeded to define exactly what God views as a morally permissible marriage. He stated:
Have you not read that He who made them at the beginning made them male and female, and said, “For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh”? So then, they are no longer two but one flesh. Therefore what God has joined together, let not man separate (Matthew 19:4-6)………
“A thinking person will question what he hears; examine what he sees; and evaluate what others would have him believe.”
“When did big government and its mainstream media tell the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth?”
