The bathroom has become the new battlefield for faith and freedom. How so, you say? Well, the breakdown goes this way:
"He created them male and female, and he blessed them and called them "human," says Genesis 5:2. Gender and sexuality are core spiritual principles to God, and because of that, they are the same to us as Christians. But the enemy has come in and tried to confuse the very thing that is most essential to each of us: our identity. Children in America are now being bombarded with confusing images--like men kissing men or women dressed as men--and we are told that if we don't "normalize it," we are bigots.
(This is a tame picture of what it will look like if transgender bathroom bills pass.)
Worse than that, President Obama just compared us to racists and slave owners, reports The Blaze. In a latest White House statement on the bathroom bill fight (deciding which bathroom transgendered people should be allowed into--and thus possibly letting men into women's restrooms), Obama's press secretary Josh Earnest said:
“State’s like Tennessee and to a certain extent North Carolina and Mississippi have a long history — even over the last couple of generations — of working through questions of civil rights. President Obama has talked on a number of occasions about the important progress that our country has made with regard to civil rights,” Earnest said. “This is a good illustration that the fight for civil rights is not over.”
A long history of working through civil rights. What do you think that is a nuanced reference to? Slavery and racism, of course.
Earnest continued, “Demanding equality for every American and ensuring those Americans are not singled out for targeting because of their sex or their race what their last name is or their religion or who they love or who they are is a struggle that continues. The president, every time, is going to be on the side of equality and fairness and justice for every American.”
But where is the fairness and justice--and protection--for every woman and child who doesn't want a man in their bathroom and locker room shower? It's not there. This is more than an issue of equality; it's an issue of spiritual truth. Did God make people "male and female" in His image? Or did He make a mistake? The Obama administration would say the latter, and they want us to agree--or else be called bigots and likened to racists.
How do you feel about Obama's statement? What do you think we should do about the battlefield of the bathroom? Let us hear your thoughts in the Comments! Thank you!
