A woke church in Fort Worth, Texas, is working to ensure that Republican legislation won't stand in the way of confused children undergoing irreversible genital mutilations and/or receiving sterilizing pharmaceuticals.
The Galileo Church in Fort Worth makes clear on its website — where God is referred to as "our Mother-Father" and parishioners are called "co-conspirators" — precisely what places first among its priorities: "We do justice for LGBTQ+ humans, and support the people who love them."
Despite recognizing that parishioners are "made imago Dei – in the very image of God," the Galileo Church appears keen on supporting works of ungodly iconoclasm.
This summer, Galileo, which has previously accused Texas Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick of being a "terrorist," founded the North Texas TRANS-portation Network in response to Texas Republicans' successful passage of SB14, ratified by Gov. Greg Abbott in June.
TheBlaze previously reported that prohibited procedures under the law are those "for the purpose of transitioning a child’s biological sex as determined by the sex organs, chromosomes, and endogenous profiles of the child or affirming the child’s perception of the child’s sex if that perception is inconsistent with the child’s biological sex."
The NTTN, a so-called "integrated auxiliary ministry," provides travel grants to North Texas families seeking to bus their children off to receive irreversible procedures and devastating drugs.
According to the NTTN page, "withholding necessary care for trans kids is state-sponsored cruelty. As neighbors to one another, we seek ways to help each other's families flourish."
A study published Sept. 19, 2022, in the Journal of Sex and Marital Therapy revealed that the puberty blockers NTTN grantees might receive at their destinations won't afford them the opportunity to flourish. Instead, luteinizing hormone-releasing hormone agonists, "licensed to chemically castrate men," will instead sterilize patients, deplete their bone density, hamper their cognitive development, and wreak havoc on their emotional states.
The money raised for NTTN grants, 100% of which apparently goes to applicants, derives from private sources.
The Pink Times, an LGBT activist blog, noted that the $1,000 grant does not require applicants to be involved in church activities or adhere to any specific religious beliefs. The organization requires, however, that applicants come from one of the 19 counties composing North Texas.
Cynthia Daniels, the executive director of the NTTN, told CBS News Texas, "I'm a mother, I have three kids so and I have always been able to get the health care for my kids that they desperately needed. So to me it's just being a good neighbor to a group of people who have been selected to not be able to receive their health care, and to me that's devastating."
Galileo's lead evangelist Katie Hays said, "They're hurt by the rejection of the neighbors; they really feel alone and like Texas does not have their back."
As of Sept. 20, the outfit had reportedly received two applications and raised enough funds to victimize one family's child.
The denomination to which Galileo belongs, the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ), appears to be big on LGBT activism, having issued a joint pastoral letter in May denouncing those laws across the nation now protecting children from confusion-affirming medical interventions.
"Trans youth and their families deserve the human dignity to seek medical care and build lives of joy and thriving," said the letter. "As leaders across the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) we encourage the church not only to take increased steps towards education, welcome and cultivating trust but to consider the ways in which the church can be a force for wholeness in communities across the United States, decrying violence and encouraging the full inclusivity and thriving of all of God’s beloved children."
