Pro-Family Group Stands With North Carolina

Phil Jensen


FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:  Monday, May 9, 2016

The Family Heritage Alliance applauds North Carolina Gov. Pat McCrory for standing against the bullying from the Obama Department of Justice (DOJ) and its bathroom agenda. We believe that the governor is correct in filing suit against a government that is trying to radically redefine federal law so that men can have access to women’s restrooms, locker rooms and other public accommodations.

Today, Gov. McCrory announced the state is seeking clarification of federal law in the courts, specifically as it applies to funding under Title VII. The Family Heritage Alliance supports the governor’s efforts to protect the privacy and safety of women and children. We also adamantly oppose the overreach of President Obama and his administration.

“The Obama administration is bypassing Congress by attempting to rewrite the law and set restroom policies for public and private employers across the country, not just North Carolina. This is now a national issue that applies to every state and it needs to be resolved at the federal level,” said Governor McCrory. “They are now telling every government agency and every company that employs more than 15 people that men should be allowed to use a women’s locker room, restroom or shower facility. It’s time for the United States Congress to bring clarity to anti-discrimination provisions.”

And President Obama’s bathroom agenda is not just happening in North Carolina. In fact, it has influence here in South Dakota.

Many will remember how that seventy-eight South Dakota State Legislators stood on principle and voted in support of HB 1008.  The aim of this bill was as well-meaning and void of malice as it was accommodating for people on both sides of the issue.  It genuinely sought to address what likely is going to be a prolonged debate in the not-so-distant future in our state.  The question at hand was this: should transgender elementary and secondary public school students be allowed to shower and use the restrooms with students of the opposite sex.   The State House voted to mandate that instead, it would be incumbent on the schools to reasonably accommodate the transgender individual in a respectful and decent manner.  The State Senate agreed.

Unfortunately, Governor Daugaard did not concur, vetoing the bill late in the day on Tuesday, March 1.

We sincerely believe that the Governor missed an opportunity to get out in front of this issue, much like NC Gov. Pat McCrory is doing, and help accommodate both sides in a peaceful and respectful manner.  We are thankful to all those South Dakotans who called or emailed their Legislators and the Governor asking for support, and for all those on both sides of the debate who opted for civil discourse in the discussion of this issue.

    Meanwhile, “mainstream” news sites — which are quickly becoming the non-satirical equivalent of “fake news” sites — are making lots of noise about how “transgenders” are having their “civil rights violated.”

      no one is buying their LIES anymore-except for the liberals.

    I know quite a few African Americans who absolutely and completely disagree with equating Jim Crow Laws and the Civil Rights Movement with gay rights-ALL of the ones I know are insulted. We all go to church together and we homeschool together. We talk about it because I myself wanted to know HOW they felt about this. ANGER is an understatement. It is ludicrous.

      Thanks for sharing that, although it’s really just any thinking person should fully expect.

      Comparing “gay rights” to the Civil Rights struggles is more insulting to African Americans than any words can express.

      But then, liberal causes are all about equating things that aren’t equal and calling things what they aren’t.
