Kudos to North Carolina’s governor

North Carolina Governor Pat McCrory (R) has filed a lawsuit against the Department of Justice in response to its letter threatening action because of the state’s law designating restrooms for men or women only.

Meanwhile, our president was in Europe apologizing for North Carolina’s common sense law that protects businesses, women, and children in the state and plainly states that boys are to use the boys’ restrooms and girls are to use the girls’ restrooms. Hey, folks — didn’t we learned that one in grade school?

But now, Attorney General Loretta Lynch and five federal government agencies — Education, Transportation, Labor, Housing and Urban Development, and Health and Human Services — have taken on The Tar Heel State, threatening to withhold federal funding if they don’t rescind HB 2, which protects women and little girls against gender confused predators, or those who would portend gender confusion to access women’s restroom and dressing room facilities.

The Family Research Council has produced a video clip that spells out the absurdity of the president’s position in light of more pressing needs in America, like ISIS infiltrating America and saber rattling from Russia, North Korea, and Iran. Here is a link for the clip:

I find it interesting that as black Americans (and professed Christians), our president and attorney general seem to have no problem supporting and allowing the agenda of the transgender community to be conjoined with the historic Civil Rights Movement for first class citizenship for black Americans. During a recent press conference, the attorney general even likened North Carolina’s bathroom bill to Jim Crow.

But the Civil Rights Movement was birthed in and of the Church, and last time I checked, the leaders of the movement were clergy who adhered to the tenets of the whole faith, which states transgenderism as immoral. Furthermore, the Civil Rights Act of 1964 makes no mention of sexuality or orientation within its confines and only pertains to ethnicity and gender specifically.

As I have stated in prior commentary, the oval office’s stance is the byproduct of the false doctrine of tolerance and inclusion, and it flies right in the face of common sense and good judgment. In short, it’s an immoral stance masquerading as compassion, tolerance, and inclusion. The acceptance of this fallacy is why rampant multiculturalism is taking place in France, the UK, and Belgium, with its resultant balkanization and terrorism. And we can already see the seeds of what is taking place in Europe sprouting here.

In my opinion, three things need to take place in America to put a stop to this foolishness:

  1. The black Church needs to tell our president, “Enough is enough!” and ask why he is so focused on the transgender community when there is rampant black-on-black crime and the black family is on life support. And we need to demand that he respect the history of the Civil Rights Movement.
  2. Congress needs to do what we hired them to do: Be the proper check and balance to the executive branch of government and challenge the president when he is operating outside of the parameters of his office.
  3. The American people need to make sure they participate come November and remember those elected officials who showed no backbone, toss them out, and replace them with individuals who espouse our values.

Final point: We need to pray for and support North Carolina, Mississippi, Texas, and all the states and their leadership who have the wherewithal to stand for principle and common sense.
