RenewAmerica notes latest cool trend in refugee resettlement: bringing in minors and gays

Well, gay, lesbian, bi-sexual, transgender and the questioners!

RenewAmerica says about itself:

RenewAmerica is a grassroots organization that supports the self-evident truths found in the Declaration of Independence, and their faithful application through upholding the U.S. Constitution, as written. Its purpose is to thoughtfully and courageously advance the cause of our nation’s Founders.

The organization is for ALL people who consider themselves loyal Americans. It has no philosophy, image, or agenda beyond this one unifying premise: America must return to its founding principles if it is to survive.

RenewAmerica is thus nonpartisan and nondenominational.

Readers should know that there is a huge push worldwide to place under government supervision tens of thousands of so-called “unaccompanied minors.”  Just this summer we learned that the US alone is expected to ‘take-in,’ under the care of the federal resettlement contractors (which includes the US Conference of Catholic Bishops) 20,000 of the youths without parents (I’m not saying all 20,000 have sexual orientation problems!).   When those “youths” turn 18 they are free to leave the care of the contractors.

Here is the post that caught my attention this Sunday morning, entitled:  A gay subculture in the USCCB? Say it ain’t so!

Blogger Matt Abbott begins by citing Catholic World News:

Bridging Refugee Youth and Children’s Services (BRYCS), a project of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops’ Migration and Refugee Services, has updated and expanded its training to workers in federally-funded refugee resettlement programs, in part to ‘address the needs of particularly vulnerable groups of children, including youth who may be gay, lesbian, bisexual, or transgendered’….

Abbott goes on to comment:

The revised Tier One Training Manual – copyrighted by the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops, and published with the assistance of a Department of Health and Human Services grant – notes that ‘it is important to be alert for homophobic remarks among the staff. If any are made, discuss in a non-judgmental way how these kinds of remarks may make a young gay resident feel.’

‘Exploring Complexities’ – the new Tier Two Training Manual, also copyrighted by the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops, and published with the assistance of a Department of Health and Human Services grant – presents a scenario in which two male minors are ‘rubbing each other with their feet on the other’s genital areas.’

The training advises:

After allowing the staff to discuss this, you can suggest that the young men should learn not to engage in sexual contact in the residence, and they should develop a stronger sense of sexual boundaries – to keep sexual activities private, even after leaving the residence…

The BRYCS manual makes no reference to moral law or the practice of virtue.

Abbott reports that he reached out to Father Perozich, a priest of the Diocese of San Diego, who demonstrates the growing schism within the American Catholic Church between conservatives and the Catholic Left which dominates the USCCB.  Remember readers, the USCCB is funded primarily by you.

Father Richard Perozich (emphasis mine):

It appears that a practicing or promoting homosexual subculture may be active in the bureaucracy of this USCCB committee. It needs to be weeded out before a Catholic agency can help in a resettlement process. Youth with [same-sex attraction] need to be guided to the truth of sexuality as man or woman and not be harassed with labeling as LGBTQ.

If an agency cannot promote the Catholic truth, then the Catholic agency is not ready to assist in resettlement work. No one should ever abuse any human being by calling them gay, lesbian, transgendered, or bisexual, whether in false affirmation or in derision. Perhaps the committee will be faithful to Jesus and work with these people even if it is at odds with the perverse government standards.

You pay for almost every dollar of the USCCB’s annual income!

Go to page 11 of the USCCB’s 2012 annual report and note that they spent $70.3 million that year and $69.6 million is from the government (those ‘refugee travel loans’ are your money too!)—from you, the taxpayer!

The USCCB should decide if Catholic teaching trumps Caesar’s money.    It’s no contest and they have obviously already chosen!

Detroit: Taxpayer funding for Iraqi mental illness in short supply

But surely the money will flow when Obamacare is in full swing—-right?

Therapist, Husam Abdulkhaleq, a Palestinian, says the Israelis imprisoned him for 6 months and tortured him in the early 1980’s, so he fled to America. hmmmm…

From The Huffington Post (emphasis mine):

Muntaha Flufel says on most days she sits alone at home watching TV, unable to interact with the community she lives in. She keeps her windows and doors locked, in fear that someone might break in and attack her like they did in Baghdad in 2004. Her scars are constant reminders — marks where the perpetrators dropped acid on her skin.

Although troops left Iraq nearly two years ago, hundreds of civilians are still being killed each month, leading many Iraqis to flee the continuing violence, which is contributing to an already dire refugee situation. According to the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, since April of this year, 84, 902 Iraqis have been settled in the U.S., and new arrivals like Muntaha are reporting symptoms associated with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).

We need to give some credit to this Huffington Post article by Erin Banco for even mentioning that these Chaldeans were tormented by Islamists!

According to health officials at ACCESS, a community organization dedicated to empowering and enabling individuals and families in the Detroit area, many of the new Iraqi Chaldean arrivals experienced primary and secondary trauma, having witnessed family members being killed, oftentimes persecuted at the hands of Islamist militias.

The trauma has caused what Husam Abdulkhaleq, the program manager of the psychosocial rehabilitation center, says includes nightmares, poor concentration, and extreme anger. The grueling process of integrating and assimilating in a new country only exacerbates the symptoms.   [Reporter Banco even dares to use the word “assimilating” a term usually verboten by the professional resettlers!—-ed]

It will be “disastrous” when the Syrians come!

The ACCESS psychosocial rehabilitation program receives the majority of its funding from the Office of Refugee Resettlement (ORR), an organization that provides refugees with the services needed to integrate into their new communities. ACCESS just recently received another three years of funding from the group, but Abdulkhaleq says the money is significantly less than what it received in previous years.

ACCESS is barely able to provide services for the most recent arrivals from Iraq with the money it has. The next area of concern is the possible wave of Syrian refugees it could see over the next five years. If the UN begins to resettle even a portion of the hundreds of thousands who have been displaced by the violence in the US, officials at ACCESS say the consequences could be “disastrous.”

ACCESS’s potential client load should be increasing even without the Syrians as we resettled 19,491 potentially traumatized Iraqis in FY2013 alone!

The photo is from this 2001 story about ACCESS in the wake of 9/11 (his clients were really stressed!), but I found another article from 2004 only as a ‘document’ in which he describes his “torture” for no reason at all at the hands of the wicked Israelis.

Syrian refugees could be bringing Polio to EU

British Health System: It’s a good thing we have socialized medicine for the refugees!

From Vaccine News:

An outbreak of acute flaccid paralysis from wild poliovirus in Syria could put European Union Member States at risk for contamination as refugees seek asylum, health officials warned on Thursday.

The European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control urged EU countries to question Syrian refugees about their polio vaccination history and to administer vaccinations to anyone who isn’t inoculated.  [Will fundamentalist Muslims even tell the truth?—ed]

The WHO launched an investigation into an outbreak of AFP cases caused by wild poliovirus in Syria on Oct. 19. Since then, the national reference laboratory in Damascus, Syria, has concluded that the AFP cases were “likely caused by wild poliovirus.”

So far, 22 children have been diagnosed. Five victims are younger than 1-year-old, 13 victims are 1 to 2 years old and 4 victims are older than 2 years old.

Meanwhile, many Syrians have fled the country due to the ongoing conflict, and more had already applied for asylum in the EU before the outbreak. Regional and international public health officials are working to provide vaccinations to Syrians and displaced refugees.

The number of children who received polio vaccinations in Syria dropped from 95 percent in 2002 to 52 percent in 2012.
