Turning American Law Upside Down for the Transgendered

The Left’s goal is “clear and explicit,” says David French of National Review.  It is “to equate sincere religious objections to sexual immorality with the invidious discrimination of Jim Crow, and then to banish believers to the same margins of society currently occupied by white supremacists.”

According to French, the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights’ official statement declares war, “not just on religious liberty but also on the First Amendment.”  He writes:

Public bathroomOur nation’s centuries-old commitment to free speech and religious liberty was already under threat. But it took men wanting to use women’s bathrooms and vice versa for the Left to truly show its hand, plainly and unequivocally declaring that American legal traditions should be set ablaze. Yesterday, the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights published a “Statement Condemning Recent State Laws and Pending Proposals Targeting the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Community” — a statement motivated by new Mississippi laws protecting religious freedom and by North Carolina’s much-discussed “bathroom law.” The Commission claims that any law requiring men and women to use bathrooms that correspond to their biological sex “jeopardizes not only the dignity, but also the actual physical safety, of transgender people whose appearances may not match societal expectations of the sex specified on their identification documents.”

While this is standard leftist rhetoric — notice it omits any concern for women and girls who will be exposed to male nudity and could be rendered more vulnerable to sexual predators — what follows is perhaps the clearest and most unequivocal statement of radical progressive legal philosophy I’ve ever read. It articulates three principles that, taken together, would render religious liberty permanently subordinate to the interests and demands of LGBT activists:

  • Civil rights protections ensuring nondiscrimination, as embodied in the Constitution, laws, and policies, are of preeminent importance in American jurisprudence.
  • Religious exemptions to the protections of civil rights based upon classifications such as race, color, national origin, sex, disability status, sexual orientation, and gender identity, when they are permissible, significantly infringe upon these civil rights.
  • Overly broad religious exemptions unduly burden nondiscrimination laws and policies. Federal and state courts, lawmakers, and policy-makers at every level must tailor religious exceptions to civil liberties and civil rights protections as narrowly as applicable law requires.

The first bullet point is breathtaking in scope, taking the concept of “nondiscrimination” and establishing it as a form of super law, in a “preeminent” jurisprudential position above even the enumerated liberties of the First Amendment.  Continue reading

    It is their agenda to persecute Christians. It is not only theirs, that is just the platform it is rolled into society on, but many forces are at work behind it.

    As I have exhorted in the past, Christians must stand their ground on what they believe and act accordingly. Of course the propaganda machine is eagerly at work, labeling us as ‘phobics’ of every form of sin when it is they who discriminate, it is like reverse psychology nazi tactics, they are the gaystapo pushing their totalitarian banner on society; which came undemocratically into law, with the raising of their gaystapo flag over their headquarters last June, just as the hitler dictatorship draped their main buildings with the nazi flag. It primes society into accepting our persecution, and as the businesses are targeted, ‘Kristalnacht’ is already well underway. It went quickly after that.

    Regarding standing firm, remember: No one can force you. They cannot force you unless you operate via a remote control, or puppet strings, or robot buttons. They cannot force you. You are in control and accountable for what you do. The nazi’s didn’t ‘force’ anyone to do anything either, despite all the “he made me do it” claims, they were tried as war criminals anyway because the bottom line is; no one can make you do anything without your consent. The solution? Just say no. Yes folks, it really is that simple. Just say NO! Then comes the avalanche of…”but… but…. they will _________ me!” And guess what? They probably will. We will not be the first Christians to have gone to the lions for standing firm. But the choice is yours. I have made my choice.

    On a sidenote, the issue of bathrooms gets messy. I know some restaurants that have only one bathroom, and everybody uses it. I know men use it and women (and whoever is there and whatever they want to think they are… etc.). Houses and apartments have only one bathroom at times, including the one at the home fellowship. That is not an issue, but putting a sign up that acknowledges LGBT is a compromise and we must be on guard to never compromise or deny the faith. Allowing grown men into a restroom with multiple stalls where women and children go is an issue of course, and there are others. You must go before the Lord and make sure everything you do honors Him and you don’t get off track by ‘coerced’ compromise. “Coerced compromise” is not a term in God’s book of excuses. Compromise is sin, period. You are either for Him, or against Him and His Word. The wheat will be separated from the chaff. Prepare and get your house in order because persecution is coming.

    W.O.T.L.: “Under this banner they will persecute you [Christians].” (rainbow flag)

      “Christians must stand their ground on what they believe and act accordingly”

      Faith, what do you propose that individual Christians do? (as I don’t see many Christian leaders doing that) What does saying NO look like, as you suggest?

      It is evident that Bible-believing Christians will be discriminated against for taking a stand, but I don’t see that same standard being imposed on Muslims to accept the LGBT agenda. “Somehow” they will be exempt.

    It tells me that Romans 1 is coming to pass again. It is obvious God is giving America up to what it wants. As a result we are going to see 2 brash things. We are going to see activists who are rabid Atheist making more moves to overturn thing in American promoting God and lifting up sin. We are also going to see those who are lesser activists but still in support of this immorality taking on the persona that they are Christians and putting on a religious apron. Deceiving themselves and those around them while keeping an ignorance to the bible with the mantra of ‘God love us the way we are’. No Gospel of repentance will be heart in their mouths.

    In contrast those of us who stand in opposition will be labeled strongly and may even lose jobs. Prepare for these things and prepare to be a lamb before the slaughter. I see this happening on social media. It is a shadow of the real thing just as the OT is a shadow of the NT.
