Letter to the editor: Feds defying common sense

U.S. Attorney General Loretta Lynch told reporters recently, “The Justice Department has ruled that North Carolina’s state law requiring ‘all people’ to use the restroom that corresponds with their sex at birth violates the U.S. Civil Rights Act and Title IX.”  As a result, the Department of Justice is filing a federal civil rights lawsuit against the state of North Carolina and is threatening to withhold federal funds from North Carolina public schools, colleges, universities and highways.

Also, the federal government asked the state to rescind the state law, known as House Bill 2, and gave them one week to comply.  The state refused, and quickly filed a restraining lawsuit against the federal government.  Now, the federal government is going after North Carolina . . . to make sure “a transgender can use any restroom, dressing room, or locker room they choose [on any given day] . . . regardless of their sex at birth.”

This is a bigger deal than you might imagine.  This federal ruling also applies to all public buildings and even companies that have 15 or more employees.  Think about that for a moment.  The next time your little daughter goes to a public restroom, you had better go with her.  The federal government has now ruled that any man who believes he’s a woman can walk into that same restroom and sit down right beside your little girl.  And if you complain, you may be subject to federal prosecution.

This defies common sense – and it is an abomination to God.  Genesis 1:27 says: “So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.”

In essence, we are now calling God a liar.  And this is just the most recent of many offenses against God — the list is getting longer and longer – we’ve banned prayer in public schools, removed the Ten Commandments from public buildings, forbidden prayers “in Jesus’ name” in the military or at public gatherings,  legalized abortion for any reason, legalized sodomy and same-sex marriage, and our government leaders want to divide Israel and Jerusalem, and now we’ve “ruled” that a person’s gender is whatever they claim it to be at that moment [even though a physical examination might prove otherwise].

The Obama administration is making it quite clear to North Carolina and anyone else who doesn’t go along with these abominations to God Almighty:  “If you resist, you will be subject to prosecution by the U.S. Department of Justice.”

This is a sad, sad day for America.
