Obama’s mis­di­rected en­ergy

The Washington Times Weekly - - Letters To The Editor - ED MULVANEY JR. An­nis­ton, Alabama

As re­ported in The Wash­ing­ton Times, 11 states are su­ing the fed­eral gov­ern­ment over the Obama ad­min­is­tra­tion’s man­date that all pub­lic schools of­fer gen­der-neu­tral ac­cess to bath­rooms, locker rooms and even shower ar­eas (“11 states sue Obama ad­min­is­tra­tion over fed­eral transgender school­bath­room di­rec­tive,” Web, May 25). Un­der this pol­icy schools that don’t com­ply could be sub­ject to the with­hold­ing of fed­eral funds. I am grate­ful that my home state of Alabama is one of the 11 tak­ing a stand against this ab­surd pol­icy.

What a shame that our pres­i­dent places such sig­nif­i­cance on this is­sue. It is not help­ing the gen­der-con­fused, as in­tended. In­stead it will en­cour­age op­por­tu­ni­ties for promis­cu­ous­ness and pos­si­bly rape. Obama has said the pol­icy is in the best in­ter­est of the chil­dren. Which chil­dren, Pres­i­dent Obama? Would it be in the best in­ter­est of your daugh­ters to use shower and locker rooms to which teenage boys have ac­cess?

Surely the pres­i­dent’s ef­forts to achieve a utopian, non-dis­crim­i­na­tory so­ci­ety would be bet­ter di­rected at pro­tect­ing the mil­lions of lives of chil­dren aborted each year, or at help­ing to pre­vent re­li­gious peo­ple around the world from be­ing slaugh­tered by the Is­lamic State.

These would be wor­thy goals, but un­for­tu­nately this ad­min­is­tra­tion’s fo­cus has been to cham­pion peo­ple based on sex­ual pref­er­ence while aban­don­ing the un­born and peo­ple of faith.
