Outlasting Michael Brown’s anti-LGBT agenda
Backlash. That’s what we’re seeing here in the flurry of anti-LGBT (and heavy on the T) legislation that’s been proposed and passed across the nation (or, in the case of Georgia, vetoed. Thank you, Gov. Deal).
North Carolina just passed one of the harshest anti-LGBT laws in the country. It all started when Charlotte, one of the state’s more civilized cities, passed an anti-discrimination law that included protections for LGBT people.
And rather than let something so terrible happen in their state, North Carolina lawmakers held a special session so they could bang out a sweeping law that banned all cities from enacting any laws that would dare to protect LGBT people.
They made sure to put particular emphasis on making sure that transgender students can’t go to the bathroom. Or, more specifically, can’t use the bathroom at school that matches their gender identity. You know, because trans students just have too many rights.
The business community has come out in strong opposition to the law. This law’s passage, in spite of what corporate America wanted, highlights the fissure going on in the GOP between the probusiness and proJesus Republicans, two factions that used to be basically one in the same.
Michael Brown, author of “Outlasting the Gay Revolution: Where Homosexual Activism Is Really Going and How to Turn the Tide,” sees these companies as just a bunch of schoolyard bullies trying to steal the Christian kids’ lunch money so that they can go spend it on sex-change operations or something.
“It is time for Christians and all people of conscience to say: ‘ Enough is enough with your bullying,’” Brown writes on CharismaNews.com.
It would be karmic justice if people like Brown, who are so concerned about the “threat” of trans people being allowed to use bathrooms, never get to take a shit in private again.
