Two Fat Ladies part 1/4

Bishop Pates Learns to Fast 4 Faith in 2007.

We do not agree with what Bishop Pates is doing.

Video Pay attention to the Banners as you read and watch.

In my opinion the "Fast of Faith and Hope for Immigration Reform" hosted by the 
Spirit of the Lakes United Church of Christ,  back on May 14, 2007 was 
an important learning experience for Bishop Pates. 

Bishop Pates of @DMDiocese is taking a stand 4 #immigrants in #Iowa. Join him: #iacaucus

Most Reverend Richard E. Pates is a Bishop
 of DesMonies, Iowa and a 
Chairman of the Committee on International Justice & Peace
within the hierarchy of the United States Conf. of Catholic Bishops.
In 2007 Bishop Pates was the Auxiliary Bishop in MinneapolisMinnesota. For reasons only known to him he "con-celebrated Mass at  Spirit of the Lakes United Church of Christ". At that time the spirit on the lake was openly homosexual. The parish is now known as Living Table, where apparently they will serve anything as long as it's deviant.
As luck would have it we found out about this scandal when we searched out the name Barbara Satin. Mr. Satin was named a Member of the President’s Advisory Council on Faith-Based and Neighborhood Partnerships. 
Everything would have been great accept Barbara who was a man is now a woman, sort of ?
The reason for this post is to bring your attention to this:


Bishop Pates, it is reported to have "con-celebrated Mass" at the openly homosexual parish
where apparently Mr. Barbara Satin, the want to be woman, was a member.
Please understand that the group that flowed from this fiasco is now called 
Fast 4 Families.

Barbara Satin and Old Liberal Bishop Pates.

Please be advised that we disagree with everything about the "trans" excuse.
Also, please understand that this is a bigger story than is being reported.
We will be spending the next few days reporting on this story.
We will be spending the next few weeks connecting the dots in ways that you knew existed,
but never took the time to do because you may have thought that it was a waste of time.

We called His Excellency Bishop Pates, "old and liberal", because it happened to be in the title
of one of the stories listed below.

We hope you will read our posts, at least for the next few days.
This story is moving faster than we can keep up with.

  Listen to the interview.

Barbara Satin, a transgender activist around issues of aging, faith and gender justice, was born in 1934 in St. Paul, Minnesota. Her father died a year-and-a-half later, leaving her mother to raise four children with the help of supportive relatives. Roman Catholicism was deeply ingrained in the family; all children went to Catholic schools and the church was an important part of their daily lives. Raised as a boy, Barbara was aware of her gender difference at an early age but had no vocabulary or ideas with which to understand and address it. She only knew that she needed to hide her differences in order to survive.

When Barbara graduated from college, she received a commission as an officer in the U. S. Air Force. It was a macho way of distracting any attention from her gender dilemma. She was in pilot training in Texas for a year before a kidney infection ended her flying career and she was given a medical discharge. When she returned to St. Paul, where she fell in love and hoped that marriage would bring an end to her gender issues. The marriage was blessed with three wonderful children.

Barbara (still living as a man) had a successful business career as director of public relations for a major international firm and was also a prominent leader in the Roman Catholic Diocese as well as a well-respected civic activist. While issues of gender identity were present throughout these years, Barbara was committed to the responsibilities of raising a family as well as being a successful provider. At age 54, Barbara took early retirement and then began to explore more fully her transgender identity.

With the support of her children and a knowledgeable therapist, Barbara came to understand that her transgender identity was how God had made her and rather than being a curse it could be a blessing in her life. As a way to more fully explore her identity, she moved out of the family home to live full-time as Barbara. (she since has returned). She also left the Catholic Church at that time, feeling that there was no place for a trans women to be of service in that denomination.

After a period of trying to be spiritual on her own, Barbara found that she missed being part of a faith community, so she decided to visit Spirit of the Lakes Church in Minneapolis. The congregation was made up primarily of LGBT persons and was the first LGBT church in a major Christian denomination. Barbara quickly found a spiritual home there and became a leader in the congregation. Through Spirit of the Lakes she became part of the United Church Coalition for LGBT Concerns (now the Open and Affirming Coalition of the UCC). As an active member of the United Church of Christ and the leader of the Coalition, she served on the denomination’s Executive Council as its first openly transgender member; she was involved in the church’s 2003 decision to affirm the inclusion of transgender people in the full life and ministry of the church.

Barbara also provided leadership for the development of Spirit on Lake, a LGBTQ senior housing project in Minneapolis. The housing project had its genesis in the work on LGBTQ aging issues started by Barbara and members and pastoral leadership of Spirit of the Lakes Church. The 46-unit, affordable rental facility opened in September 2013. At the time it was only the second such project in the U.S.
In February 2015, Barbara was invited to the White House to talk to the Administration about housing concerns for LGBTQ seniors and in July 2015 she was one of three LGBTQ people invited to participate for the first time in the White House Conference on Aging. Barbara also sits on the boards of a number of non-profits that serve LGBTQ people in the areas of philanthropy, training of senior care providers and HIV/AIDS services.

Barbara serves as Assistant Faith Work Director for The National LGBTQ Task Force where her responsibilities include working for the full inclusion of trans persons in communities of faith.

Please be advised that Mr. Satin's Church was once called Spirit of the Lakes.

Welcoming Home for Lgbt Seniors

Last Monday (May 14, 2007), I supported those participating in the “Fast of Faith and Hope for Immigration Reform” by joining with approximately 200 people in walking from Spirit of Lakes United Church of Christ in Minneapolis to the Capitol in St. Paul – a distance of nine miles.

The Fast of Faith and Hope for Immigration Reform began on May 5, with ten people committing to a ten-day water-only fast. Many others committed themselves to fasting for part of this ten-day period.

The event was a wonderful example of ecumenical cooperation – with over 20 churches from a number of different faith traditions organizing and/or supporting the fast in one way or another. The primary organizers of the fast were St. Stephen’s Catholic Church, 

Spirit of the Lakes United Church of Christ, and the 
Office of Social Justice of the Catholic Archdiocese of St. Paul/Minneapolis.

Above: At one point during the prayer service, candles and all 500 white crosses were placed together on the ground to form one large cross. In light of what each cross represented - i.e., a life lost in an attempt to cross the border - this large pile of crosses was a very poignant sight.

After the prayer service, a simple meal of soup and bread was served in the church. For many, this was their first meal in ten days.

Above: Jose Valencia (at left in striped shirt) celebrates with others the conclusion of the ten-day fast - 
Monday, May 14, 2007.

Valencia had earlier told The Catholic Spirit that his Catholic faith had motivated him to participate in the fast.

“We are empowered by our faith and united in our dream for true equality here in America,” he said. “We hope this spiritual passage will help bring our nation back to its core values of liberty, justice, and freedom for all.”

Trump refers to alleged Bill Clinton assault as ‘rape’.

Presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump used the word "rape" Wednesday evening to describe alleged sexual misconduct by former President Bill Clinton. 
Trump made the comment during an interview with Fox News' Sean Hannity. The real estate mogul was answering questions about an unflattering story published this past weekend by The New York Times involving his relationships with women when he turned his attention to Bill Clinton.
"By the way, you know, it's not like the worst things, OK," Trump said. "You look at what Clinton's gone through with all of the problems and all of the things that he's done." ... Read Further.
