In the aftermath of Obama’s directive for public schools to allow transgender students access to any bathrooms and showers they wish or risk loss of federal funding, multitudes are asking, “How should we respond?”
Concerned parents and politicians offer strong opposition:
- Lt. Governor of Texas, Dan Patrick, said, “I believe it’s the biggest issue facing families and schools in America since prayer was taken out of public schools…he can keep his 30 pieces of silver. We will not yield to blackmail from the President of the United States!”
- U.S. Rep. Ralph Abraham, R-LA, called the decree “nothing short of extortion.”
- Kentucky Governor Matt Bevin said public schools “should not feel compelled to bow to such intimidation.”
- Southern Baptist spokesman, Russell Moore, declared: “Children are not pawns of the state, to experiment with on behalf of the latest fashionable ‘right side of history’ cause.”
- Christian leader, Dr. Michael Brown, issued “A Call for National Civil Disobedience.”
- Tony Perkins, president of the Family Research Council stated, “If the President chooses to go forward with this outrageous order – then congress should begin impeachment proceedings.”
The Bathroom Brouhaha
The term brouhaha ends with “ha ha” but this isn’t funny. The word was an exclamation used by characters representing the devil in 16th century dramas. Many believe what’s happening in the escalating national debate over bathroom bills has definite demonic overtones.
Isn’t it plain common sense and common decency that our daughters and granddaughters should be safe and secure knowing a boy does not have access to their restrooms, showers and locker rooms, yes, even if the fella’ feels he’s now a girl?
Are we watching an episode of the Twilight Zone as 150 parents and students are suing to stop a he/she transgender, in a district of 12,000, who’s demanding open access to girl’s locker rooms and bathrooms? The ACLU-represented student said not being able to do this “crushed” and “stigmatized me, often making me feel like I was not a normal person.” His attorney says it is “discrimination” if they will not comply and a “violation of federal law.”
