It seems that Colorado has passed a law allowing transvestites to use the bathroom of their choice. What a victory! Now men who think they are women can join women in the women’s rest room! How egalitarian. How comforting. I can just picture my 8 year old daughter in the bathroom while some guy in a dress delicately adjusts his johnson at the sink.
Even worse, I can see butch women trying to make a go of the men’s room without being harassed, and then trying to press harassment charges when men rightly ridicule them, asking them how big their own johnson might be. As I suggested (humorously) in Transgender Rights override women’s rights:
We can either separate men and women by their God-given biology, or we
need to create new spaces for the now FOUR possible genders.
Chuck Colson has written a nice piece on this debacle, and so has the Constructive Curmudgeon in Transvestite Invasion: Truth Evasion:
What is now stopping a sexual predator from going into the women’s room to stalk (or worse) a young girl? How would a defecating male in the women’s make women–real women–feel in there?
Even worse, this law might apply to churches and businesses who don’t comply with this asinine law. As I wrote in The coming conflict between same-sex marriage and religious liberty, the GLBT agenda claims to be egalitarian, but what is happening in reality is that those who oppose the mental illnesses of GLBT identities are now subject to lawsuits, fines, and imprisonment, not to mention loss of tax-exempt status. See how this Colorado law will apply:
Colorado tops them all on the potential outrage meter, however, because in addition to civil fines and penalties, small-business owners can be prosecuted under the criminal laws of Colorado and spend up to one year in jail for trying to live according to their faith.
To add insult to injury, your tax dollars will be used to prosecute these people of faith, and the legislature is expecting 30 complaints and three legal cases per year.
Colorado will now experiment with the liberty-destroying GLBT laws that are beginning to ravage Canada. Want to see what’s coming if we pursue this path? Here’s what happened to a Canadian pastor recently:
In a decision dated May 30 in the penalty phase of the quasi-judicial proceedings run by the Alberta Human Rights Tribunal,
evangelical pastor Stephen Boisson was banned from expressing his
biblical perspective of homosexuality and ordered to pay $5,000 for
"damages for pain and suffering" as well as apologize to the activist
who complained of being hurt.
It’s already happening IN THE USA:
In Albuquerque, which has a similar law, a Christian
husband and wife who own and operate their own photography studio were
recently hauled before that state’s human rights commission and fined
more than $6,600 for politely refusing, on religious grounds, to
photograph a lesbian "commitment ceremony." We’ve seen similar charges
brought by homosexuals against a video reproduction business in
Virginia, a medical clinic in California, an adoption service in
Arizona and a church in New Jersey.
Amazing, tragic, enraging, and idiotic.
