"Another area of discussion concerned the proposed budget increase in for health-care expenditures, based on the expectation that those costs will continue to rise as they did last year. Mr. Dean expressed his opinion that the amount budgeted for health-care should be set at the same amount as was spent for that purpose in the last 12 months. He stated that the Council had made a commitment each of the last two years that the next budget would put more emphasis on public proclamation, but this would be the third consecutive year when significant increases had not been put directly into preaching the gospel. He suggested that the budget for health-care be set at the amount spent in the last calendar year and if the expenses go beyond that, then the Church's cash reserves, increase in income or employee co-payments could be used to cover the difference. Dr. Kirkpatrick responded that there had been no commitment or promise in previous years in regard to future budgets" (Henson D.

Pansexual identified people often just come across as very misinformed about bisexuality – as in the article above – (well I don’t know if the writer identifies as pansexual or not but I’m damned sure they don’t identify as bisexual). Bisexuality doesn’t have anything to do with a rigid binary. definition or view of male and female sex and gender roles. Ironically the original meaning of bisexual is: “Having both male and female reproductive organs; hermaphroditic.” And the word is still used in that sense by some scientists – for example marine biologists referring to fish who have the natural ability to literally change their reproductive sex.
