A group of pastors stood together at North Carolina’s Capitol on Tuesday to support the state’s privacy-protection law, the News & Observer reported.
After Gov. Pat McCrory signed the bill into law, which bans biological males from entering female facilities on government property, including schools, various businesses and entertainers boycotted the state. Some of the privacy-protection law’s opponents do business with countries that jail homosexuals.
President Barack Obama’s Department of Justice threatened to pull federal funding if lawmakers didn’t roll back protection for women and girls. The federal government issued a directive requiring states to allow biological males into female restrooms, locker rooms, showers, and other changing areas in government schools.
The pastors and other participants took issue with leftists equating perverse sexual behavior with race.
John Amanchukwu of the Upper Room Christian Academy said the group was there to “debunk and dispel the fallacious ideologies that many have attached to HB2, which is simply common sense. Our president and our attorney general have made some inflammatory comments that are erroneous at best.”
Clarence Henderson, who sat at a Woolworth’s lunch counter in 1960 to protest racial segregation, said that whatever the homosexual lobby is doing, “don’t call it civil rights.”
