Human Rights in Perspective: Current Challenges to Sexual Freedom (Part 1)

The human mind is a dangerous weapon. The Country Reports on Human Rights Practices for 2013 from the U.S. State Department reinforce this timeless notion. The Report, released in February, gives us a clear view of the current frontier in the human rights struggle. Things have come to a head, and at this point you have no excuse to be uninformed. The discrimination that the LGBT (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Trans) community is facing worldwide is out of control, and will surely have adverse effects on people of all races, genders, colors, and creeds if left alone. Freedom is not freedom ...

We have seen how Terasem functions, through its agents, at every occasion of time. (When is Terasem?) But this applies equally well throughout all space, since all occasions are potentially embraced by the agencies of Terasem. Thus the term “occasion” includes everywhere something happens as well as everywhen something happens. But the role of the agent of Terasem remains essential in asserting the guidance of the force of destiny, wherever it may be required. As we become agents of Terasem ...
