This is just so very, very wrong. Sorry, that’s just the way I see it. A man who is pretending to be a woman is now a model for Victoria’s Secret. The brand has been the landing place of countless beautiful women who model sexy lingerie… and in the name of twisted diversity, a man will now be part of the models that grace that runway. This is a form of mental illness and everywhere you look these days, we are encouraging it.
Valentina Sampaio of Brazil will be the first transgender model for Victoria’s Secret. Almost every woman I know, including myself, have shopped there at one time or another. Scratch another warped business model from my shopping list. This happened less than a year after the lingerie company came under fire after an executive made remarks about transgender people walking in its annual fashion show. My how times have changed and not for the better.
Sampaio previously made history as the first transgender model to appear on the cover of Vogue magazine, ET reports. She graced the cover of the March 2017 issue of Vogue Paris.
From The Daily Wire:
“Speculation as to Sampaio’s inclusion among the Victoria’s Secret roster began when the transgender model posted a photo of himself at a shoot with “VS Pink” on Instagram. Shortly thereafter, the Brazilian model Lais Ribeiro tweeted that she was “so happy” that Sampaio experienced his first photoshoot with Victoria’s Secret.
“The inclusion of Sampaio comes months after L. Brands’ (parent company of Victoria’s Secret) Chief Marketing Officer Ed Razek sparked the ire of social justice leftists when he told Vogue that little interest exists for plus-size and trans models on the runway.
“I think we address the way the market is shifting on a constant basis. If you’re asking if we’ve considered putting a transgender model in the show or looked at putting a plus-size model in the show, we have,” Razek said, adding that the sister division, Lane Bryant, was created to fill that consumer need.
“We invented the plus-size model show in what was our sister division, Lane Bryant,” he continued. “Lane Bryant still sells plus-size lingerie, but it sells a specific range, just like every specialty retailer in the world sells a range of clothing. As do we.”
“We market to who we sell to, and we don’t market to the whole world,” he said. “We attempted to do a television special for plus-sizes [in 2000]. No one had any interest in it, still don’t.”

“After significant backlash on social media, Razek later apologized, admitting his comments on trans models were “insensitive.”
“My remark regarding the inclusion of transgender models in the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show came across as insensitive,” he said in a statement. “I apologize. To be clear, we absolutely would cast a transgender model for the show. We’ve had transgender models come to castings … and like many others, they didn’t make it. … But it was never about gender. I admire and respect their journey to embrace who they really are.”
“Shortly thereafter, People confirmed that Victoria’s Secret’s CEO Jan Singer would be leaving the company, though no details were provided as to why. A week later, L Brands’ chairman and chief executive officer Leslie H. Wexner released a statement saying, “I wish Jan well. I greatly appreciate her passion and know she will succeed in whatever she pursues next. We appreciate all that she brought to the brand.”‘
Many are not happy with this trend and I agree. Back in 2017, Playboy introduced their first-ever transgender playmate — Ines Rau. It was not good for business but they did it anyway. The move drew immediate criticism on social media, with former porn star Jenna Jameson leading the way. “I have a problem with it just like I have a problem with a transgender competing against biological women in sports,” Jameson tweeted. “I think it’s setting fire to an iconic brand and pandering to this ridiculous PC world we live in.” I totally agree.
This insanity has sped up since Caitlyn Jenner appeared on the scene. You can measure the life of a nation or people by their morality and that is hitting rock bottom here in the US these days. This is a prime example of that. Not to mention the sheer insanity of it all and how it insults women in general. I don’t care how beautiful the man claiming to be a woman is… he’s still a man.
The annual fashion show has suffered from diminishing ratings for several years, and, according to Angel Shanina Shaik, the 2019 show has been canceled. It was initially reported that the show just wouldn’t be televised. This won’t help their ratings… quite the opposite. While Victoria’s Secret has built a $7 billion lingerie empire on the idea that “sex sells,” declining profits and criticism of the company may mean a revamp is coming. I think it may be too little, too late. Just sayin’.

New York City To Allow Illegals To Apply For Affordable Housing, Compete With US Citizens
It’s almost impossible to live in New York City unless you make six-figures these days and rent is sky-high there. The Big Apple is now going to allow illegal immigrants to apply for affordable housing thereby competing with US citizens in a scarce and over-priced market. It will wind up hurting those struggling to make it already in NYC that are here legally.
Rent-subsidized housing is already limited in quantity amid a homeless crisis and skyrocketing rents thanks to progressive policies put in place by Democrats in that state and city. Chief among those pushing these policies is New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio. He just introduced new eligibility rules that will allow the city’s approximate 725,000 illegal alien residents to apply for subsidized, affordable housing — which has historically been reserved for American taxpayers.
No longer will New Yorkers who apply to live in affordable housing have to show their credit rating, a legitimate Social Security number, and documents proving that they are a US taxpayer. Instead, applicants will only have to prove that they paid rent on time every month for a year, a plan that is likely to allow thousands of illegal aliens to obtain affordable housing units over American citizens.
“De Blasio has hoped to increase the number of affordable housing units to 300,000 by 2026, a limited amount for a city with more than 8.5 million residents, the majority of whom are renters who have had to deal with increasing housing prices.
“Already, as Bloomberg News notes, the city receives more than 500 applications for each available affordable housing unit that currently exists with the stricter rules. That number is expected to significantly increase when the new rules open the application process to hundreds of thousands of illegal aliens and temporary foreign workers on various visa programs, shutting out more and more Americans from cheaper housing.
“The country’s mass illegal and legal immigration policy of the last four decades has greatly driven population growth in the country’s largest cities like New York, Los Angeles, and San Francisco. As a result, experts — including former federal immigration official Lou Di Leonardo — say rents and housing prices sour with increased competition for affordable housing.
“Leonardo wrote in the San Fransisco Chronicle:
“Just like everyone else, immigrants need places to live. Their demand for a limited supply of apartments and houses drives up rents, especially in metropolitan areas where immigrants tend to concentrate. Curbing immigration levels would do more than any welfare program to ensure that working-class Americans can afford the roofs over their heads.
“Take the Bay Area, for example. Immigrants account for roughly 36% of the population. The average home was valued around $1.34 million last year. San Francisco’s housing prices have risen so rapidly that one U.N. official called it a “human rights violation.”
“In Los Angeles, where immigrants make up 35% of the population, home values shot up 50% in the past five years. Nine in ten homes are now unaffordable to the average L.A. resident.
“As of 2017, New York City is now home to more than three million foreign-born residents — making up about 37 percent of the total city’s population. This indicates that there are more foreign-born residents living in New York City today than there are people living in Chicago, Illinois; San Diego, California; and Houston, Texas.
“Coinciding with illegal and legal immigration that has increased New York City’s population, one-bedroom rents in the city, as well as two-bedroom rents, have grown to astronomical levels. The latest analysis by Zumper finds that median one-bedroom New York City rent is about $3,050 a month, growing 3.7 percent in August and beating out the last three-year, all-time high of median rents in June, which came in at $2,980 a month.
“Two-bedroom monthly rents in New York City also grew more than two percent this month, increasing the median rate to about $3,450 for the city’s residents.”
New York City can’t even provide for their own and yet they are giving special consideration to those breaking the rule of law. It makes no logical sense and it will hurt New Yorkers. In the name of political correctness, De Blasio and his affiliates are choosing illegal immigrants over actual New Yorkers and that is just wrong. Hopefully, they will vote him out next time around.
As Lou Di Leonardo, a former senior ICE official said at the San Francisco Chronicle: “For tens of millions of Americans, the rent is too high. Changing our immigration laws would bring it down.” Yes, it would. We need to reduce immigration-fueled population growth.

New Gay Bishop Says God Is A Woman
I would never attend the Episcopal Church as a Christian. They have turned the gospel upside down on its head. Rev. Thomas Brown, who is married to a fellow priest, was ordained as a bishop of the diocese of Maine in the Episcopal Church June 22. Immediately following his ordination, Brown referred to God as a “she” twice in the Nicene Creed. I guess I’m old school… but I refer to God as a ‘he’. His gender doesn’t matter to me but his commandments and directives surely do.
“She is worshipped and glorified. She has spoken through the Prophets,” the just-ordained Bishop Brown stated, referring to the Holy Spirit. I find that offensive and nothing short of political pandering. The Nicene Creed was written 1,638 years ago and only uses masculine pronouns to refer to God. Oddly enough, the microphones at the Cathedral of St. Luke put forth Bishop Curry’s voice just fine for most of the creed, except for when he referred to God as a ‘she’.
From The Daily Caller:
“Deacon Todd Thomas of the Episcopal Diocese of Washington told the Daily Caller that he has never heard an Episcopal priest use female pronouns in the creed. Individual bishops and priests can, however, change words and phrases in the Nicene Creed, Deacon Thomas explained. He cautioned any changes to the creed should be done “in conversation” with the lay people.
“Deacon Thomas told the Daily Caller he has heard Episcopal priests use female pronouns for God outside of the context of official creeds.
“The Episcopal church has a tradition of interpreting the Book of Proverbs’ mentions of “Lady Wisdom” as referring to the Holy Spirit, Deacon Thomas said.
“Inclusive language” of God is encouraged by the Episcopal Church. This “means the use of male and female imagery and metaphors in a balanced way to express the truths we know of God,” the Episcopal Dictionary of the Church says.
“Bishop Brown describes himself as a “servant leader who strives for justice among all people and who continues to address white privilege, dismantle racism, and work for the full inclusion of LGBTQ people in the Body of Christ.”
“The bishop met his husband, Father Tom Mousin, when Father Mousin was serving as a pastor in the United Methodist Church. Brown’s husband has since converted to the Episcopal Church, and been ordained in that church.
“It is possible that Father Mousin will take up a position at a parish in his husband’s diocese, he said on Facebook, explaining he would have oversight from an outside bishop.”
Our Rector and his wife traveled to Maine this weekend to be present for the consecration of Thomas Brown as bishop of that diocese. The bishop is the 2nd openly gay diocesan in TEC. pic.twitter.com/rUKLk9WpPX

In 2018, the Episcopal Church mandated that all dioceses would perform same-sex marriages. It doesn’t matter whether the bishop objects or not, they are commanded to conduct the ceremony. William Love, the Episcopal bishop of Albany, New York is in a state of partial inhibition because he has declined to allow priests to celebrate same-sex weddings. In other words, he’s between a rock and a hard place over his church’s doctrine.
More from The Daily Caller:
“Twenty years before this resolution, Episcopal bishops at the Lambeth Conference rejected “homosexual practice as incompatible with Scripture.” They also voted that they “cannot advise the legitimizing or blessing of same-sex unions nor ordaining those involved in same gender unions.”
“A wider battle is brewing in the denomination over the subject of gay marriage. Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby faces opposition from the Global Anglican Future Conference for inviting bishops in same-sex relationships to the last Lambeth Conference. At the same time, Episcopal church leaders have objected to Welby’s decision to not invite bishops’ same-sex spouses to the conference.
“Bishop Brown’s ordination is the second time a gay man with a partner was elected a bishop in the Episcopal Church. Gene Robinson was elected a bishop in 2003 but has since divorced his partner, Mark Andrew. Mary Glasspool, a lesbian married to Becki Sander, was elected a bishop suffragan in 2009 and was present at Brown’s ordination.”
My, how times have changed and the Episcopal Church no longer resembles what it once was.
My heart is filled with gratitude: for the Episcopal Diocese of Maine,who saw in Thomas James Brown, my spouse what I…
From 1990 to 1994, Brown worked as the director of education for Planned Parenthood in South Central Michigan. Why am I not surprised? He condones the slaughter of the unborn as well. Figures. In 2018, the General Convention of the Episcopal Church called for “women’s reproductive health and reproductive health procedures to be treated as all other medical procedures.”
Silly me, I have always thought that if you are a Christian, you follow the teachings of the Bible. You don’t twist them to fit your immorality, whims, or political agenda. If you do, you aren’t really a Christian, now are you? There is no such thing as ‘woke’ parishioners and clergy… just faux Christians.
