Evan Michael Minton: “No one should have to go through that.”

The following comes from an Apr. 20 story in the Sacramento Bee.

My feedMore than seven months after a Dignity Health hospital refused a hysterectomy to a Sacramento-area transgender patient, the American Civil Liberties Union filed a lawsuit Wednesday on his behalf.

    Convert and repent America before it is too late. Turn to a God of love and mercy or face his divine justice and judgement. Pray America Pray.

  2. Steve Seitz says:

    By his own words, it sounds like he wishes to sue the Church for having religious beliefs. The spirit of Joseph Stalin with its propensity for tyranny lives on in the regressive left.

  3. This woman has a mental disorder and is seeking to force the Church to submit to her delusions and affirm her fantasy that she is male. This is an intimidation tactic in an attempt to compel Christians through legal terrorism using weaponized lawsuits to submit to leftist ideology, to deny truth, to deny objective reality, and to deny their faith in God as creator of male and female.

    When leftists were trying to advance homosexuality they frequently claimed, “God doesn’t make mistakes.” Odd that they don’t say that anymore. Transgenderism seems to imply that God does make mistakes, if you take that preposterous ideology seriously. Truth and consistency aren’t valued by the left. They say whatever they think will help them win.

      Brilliant! Thank you! Incidentally, the DSM IV, used by psychologists/psychiatrists, classifies persons like Ms. Minton as having a psychological disorder. Sex change does not change the diagnosis, but is the treatment of last resort. Religious freedom is at stake here and our bishops need to be proactive on this.

      • Your Fellow Catholic says:

        We are now in the era of DSM-V. Your thoughts and those of even DSM-IV do not represent current thinking of the psychological community. For decades, part of the problem has been that in order to obtain medical intervention, you had to have a “code” that corresponded to something in the DSM. In that bizarre abstraction, untreated transgenderism is curable, through gender change surgeries, and needed to be given a code in order to get medical intervention. It doesn’t mean that the individual is sick or disordered. It’s a function of our silly medical billing system.

        • Males who believe they are females DO have a mental disorder. Females who believe they are males DO have a mental disorder.

          The “psychological community” is full of quack doctors who give political correctness more weight than truth, with the result that society is now subjected to nonsense such as transgenderism.

        • Don Guillermo says:

          Thank you for the correction. Indeed DSM V is the latest edition. Still and all, DSM V like DSM IV before it, still classifies persons like Ms. Minton as having a psychological disorder. Your attribution of this to “our silly medical billing system” is plausible, but not every plausible explanation has to be true. And, by what authority, I wonder, do you speak on behalf of the whole “psychological community” and its “current thinking”? Thank you, though, for a respectful and thoughtful answer. If we cannot agree, then let us at least be charitable in our disagreement.

  4. “Minton’s hysterectomy was part of a series of surgeries to complete his transition from female to male.”
    ———————————————————————————————————————————————-
    Let’s rephrase that. “Minton’s hysterectomy was part of a series of surgeries to CHANGE HER FROM A NORMAL FEMALE TO A BUTCHERED FEMALE.

    She was born female; she’ll die female.

    Based on this article, I’m not sure that Minton has a case. I’m surprised the ACLU took it. He got surgery. It would be a different story if they had not made sufficient accommodation so that he could get it. He will have to show that the delay caused him significant harm, which is not an easy burden. People get their surgeries denied at last minute all the time. My Mother-in-law was in prep for surgery before the insurance company agreed to pay for her breast cancer surgery! I suppose she could have sued for the stress the delay in approval caused her. The law does not guarantee any of us a stress free life.

    • Disgusted with California Bishops says:

      You should have used the pronoun “she”. She is female. Always was, is now, always will be.

    • This mentally ill woman hates Catholic doctrine and wants to make it illegal for Catholic institutions to refuse to accommodate other mentally ill people who wish to mutilate their bodies. The lawsuit is not because she suffered a minor inconvenience; it’s a weapon to hurt the Church. Leftists brand themselves as the tolerant ones, yet they are the haters. They hate the truth and they hate Godly people. It’s the same with gays who sue florists and photographers. They could easily go to another florist or photographer for their pretend weddings, but they use the law as a weapon to hurt Christians and compel acceptance of their disorders and their unnatural relationships.

  6. Your Fellow Catholic says:

    Mr. Minton is a he. You have no competence or knowledge to say otherwise. Medically competent individuals, as well as Mr. Minton’s own evidence, shows that he is a he. I don;t know his situation, nor do you. But he says, and his doctors say, that he is a he. We have ALWAYS taken the word of the physician to determine the sex of a person.

    That is a different question, as I pointed out, than whether he has a reasonable legal case, and I repeat that I think he does not.

    • Disgusted with Catholic Bishops says:

      No, that woman was born with a uterus, a vagina and XX chromosomes. She was, is and will always be female no matter how skillfully she attempts to conceal the biological, physical truth with surgery and drugs and lawsuits.

    • So God makes mistakes, then, by giving a man a woman’s body?

      That stance is a neo-gnosticism, a heresy in which human beings are not unions of body and soul. Rather, the transgender heresy proposes that human beings are souls whose bodies are malleable because the body is not properly united to a person’s soul; the body is more like a costume that can be changed as it suits a person’s fancy.

      Transgenderism is false, idiotic, heretical and foolish. I do not respect the intellect nor the faith of anyone who takes it seriously.

      In the final resurrection that woman will have a woman’s body, not the mutilated pseudo-male body her surgeons have sculpted, because she is a woman. Whether she will be in heaven or hell, who knows? But…
