Quoting Quiverfull: Government Is Pushing Transgender On Teens?

Quoting Quiverfull: Government Is Pushing Transgender On Teens? February 4, 2015

bquotingquiverfully Rev. James David Manning from Atlah World Missionary Church as quoted by Raw Story – NY Pastor “Justin Bieber is trans and ‘cut off his breasts’ because Obama’s ‘evil spirits’ mislead him

Editor’s note: This pastor keeps popping up on national media in his competition with Steven L. Anderson of Faithful Word Baptist Church for the strangest fundamentalist Christian conspiracy theories. Here he blames transgenderism on the president. While this isn’t really a QF issue necessarily it does neatly dovetail with those in the Quiverfull movement that are trying to demonize transgendered people, like Michelle Duggar and others more mainstream. This conspiracy theory is a little extra crazy sounding. 

“We’re talking about young girls, 6 to 10 years of age,” Atlah World Missionary Church Rev. James David Manning said in a YouTube video that was posted on Friday. “They can be led or influenced to cut off their breasts once they get into puberty. They can be led to have operations — like Justin Bieber — they can think that the best choice for their life is to cut off their breasts.”

“And then by the time they reach the age of 20 years old, they say, ‘I wish I had never cut off my breasts, I wish I had never mutilated my flesh, I wish I had never cut off my penis, I wish I had never done that, I was just young. And the people in the church or the people in the media said or gave the impression that I had a right to choose any kind of sexual orientation that I wanted to choose, and so I cut off my penis or I cut off my breasts.’”

Read the entire thing and watch the video at Raw Story.
