Pro-Family Group Backs NC Gov McCrory Against Obama Bullying

North_Carolina_flagFOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: Wednesday, June 22, 2016

Family Heritage Alliance Action applauds North Carolina Governor Pat McCrory for standing against the bullying from the Obama Department of Justice 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 that have up until recently been sex specific.

Recently, Governor McCrory announced the state is seeking clarification of federal law in the courts, specifically as it applies to funding under Title VII. Family Heritage Alliance Action supports the Governor’s efforts to protect the decency of our culture, and the privacy and safety of women and children. We also adamantly oppose the egregious and unconstitutional 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 HB1008. 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 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, and vetoed the bill.

Family Heritage Alliance Action sincerely believes that unlike NC Governor McCrory, Governor Daugaard missed an opportunity to get out in front of this issue and help accommodate both sides in a peaceful and respectful manner. We are thankful to the thousands of South Dakotans who called or emailed their Legislators and the Governor asking for support of HB1008, and for all those on both sides of the debate who opted for civil discourse in the discussion of this issue.
