    A California judge orders the state prisons system to pay for the reassignment surgery of a male prisoner. Do you think this is wise and good stewardship of taxpayer's money?

    And more importantly, since it is your tax money going to fund gender reassignment surgery, and a lifetime of medication needed to maintain hormonal balance for the persons' new gender, IS THIS SOMETHING A BELIEVER SHOULD BE A PART of when it will be your taxes going to fund this controversial surgical procedure?

    I don't think there'll be any serious disagreement on this subject.

    One would hope that you are right.

    But then again...

    Less of that is happening every day.

    Most convicted felons now feel entitled to even better treatment than they were likely to receive outside of prison. In Texas, they complain bitterly because , if they are not indigent, they are required to pay the first $100 per year for medical treatment. All drugs are totally free. Emergency treatment is totally free. The dedictible does not apply.

    Some of them even refuse to go see a doctor or nurse when they are sick because of it, knowing if it becomes an "emergency", treatment is then provided free.

    Bitter spirits. Folks that live to cause others problems, have a predisposition for GERD and heartburn! Be sure to take some T.U.M.S. with you to lunch. :laugh:

    I'm not sure, but since you asked, brother, what do you suggest?

    I know we need to change the political landscape that is putting these Justices into office and writing liberal laws need to go! Even so, I look forward to your suggestions, Ponch!

    If a man thinks he is a woman or a woman thinks she is a man, it's a mental issue that needs to be addressed. You don't confuse them further especially at tax payers expense for that. It's completely unbiblical.
