The Catholic Defender: Defending Basic Women’s Right’s

Posted by Donald Hartley - May 10th, 2016

Transgender 1The Federal Government today has been pushing a terrible liberal agenda that is affecting every State in the Union.  The recent attack being levied upon the State of North Carolina should be a wake up call for all Americans.  The Obama Administration has been pushing some of the most outlandish things. Obama’s Attorney General, Loretta Lynch is trying to pass off trangender’s proposed rights to use public restrooms, locker rooms, and public showers in place of women’s rights of privacy.

Ms Lynch is wanting to discriminate against women’s rights by legalizing men to be able to use women’s public facilities. A man who thinks he has a right, who actually thinks he’s a woman in a man’s body, according to Ms Lynch, his rights out weighs the women’s right of privacy.  This is not coming from America’s foundations where there have always been the expectation and norms of society.  Who taught him that he has a right to use a woman’s facility? This is a new phenomenon coming out of a ultra-left agenda.  As they want to have open borders into the United States, that would now include our bathroom facilities.

It is a woman’s right to be able to use public facilities without the worry of having men invading their privacy. Women should have the right of privacy.

transgender 2People commonly worry about the possibility that perverts will purposely go into these facilities as a prowler, a predator. That might be a concern, especially where children are concerned, but the argument should be based on protecting women’s rights of expected privacy. As a husband, I personally do not want any man showering next to my wife for ANY reason!

It is common courtesy that “transgender” people use the facilities that their biological, physical appearance would agree. If they have a man’s attributes, he should be using men’s facilities.

It’s hard to take this seriously but this is what families are facing today because of an ultra-left agenda. Target has taken a loss because Americans are burning their cards because of their allowing men to go into women’s bathrooms.

transgender 3American businesses will be hurt as people will buy and sell more and more using the internet. That is what I see taking place because of the disgrace being pushed by Obama and Ms. Lynch. They are wanting to redefine what discriminating based on sex means. If you “discriminate” against men who think they are a women in a man’s body Obama want’s to apply this against Title VII,” a section of the Civil Rights Act prohibiting discrimination against workers on the basis of sex, race, color, national origin, and religion.

What is at the heart of this problem being thrown on the American people is the issue of modesty. Traditionally, women in society have always been protected by men because women were the weaker sex. St. Peter, the first Popes states, “Likewise you husbands, live considerately with your wives, bestowing honor on the woman as the weaker sex, since you are joint heirs of the grace of life, in order that your prayers may not be hindered.”

transgender 4Foreign invaders would often times break the will of the conquered by demoralizing women to show them who their masters were.  It was a disgrace placed upon any civilization to destroy resistance.   Consider Isaiah’s warning, “Their infants will be dashed in pieces before their eyes; their houses will be plundered and their wives ravished.” (Isaiah 13:16)

Usually these things happen when a nation is invaded such as what happened in Kuwait when Saddam Hussein launched the 1990 invasion. The atrocities committed were outrageous. We have seen this in Europe with the Muslim invasion taking place today. Women have been molested and it has somehow become politically incorrect to speak out against this.

How unfortunate that the enemy seems to be attacking our society from within our own boundaries on the pretense of personal “right’s”. The right’s of women specifically and men in general are now secondary to the “right’s” of those who want to force their agendas on all of us.

transgender 51 John 2:16 teaches us, “For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh and the lust of the eyes and the pride of life, is not of the Father but is of the world.” Society should be defending the dignity of every person, that is why society has norms for how people should act in public. Titus 2:6-7 states, “Show yourself in all respects a model of good deeds, and in your teaching show integrity, gravity, and sound speech that cannot be censured, so that an opponent may be put to shame, having nothing evil to say of us.”

What the Obama Administration is trying to do through Judicial activism is a disgrace and a complete infringement on women’s rights who by the vast majority are very uncomfortable with showering around men in public places. The fact that this is even part of our politics today is incredible. Donald Trump would be wise to pick up the mantle to protect and defend this right of women against Hillary Clinton who will strongly support the Democrat’s pro-LBGT bath room agenda.

The Catholic Defender: Transgender Progressives Seek To Apply Themselves to a Bathroom Near You

Posted by Donald Hartley - April 25th, 2016

Bath 1In North Carolina, Under the Public Facilities Privacy & Security Act, in schools and government buildings people must use the bathroom that corresponds with their “biological sex,” defined as the one “stated on a person’s birth certificate.”

Also, Target has entered into this saying, “We believe that everyone—every team member, every guest, and every community—deserves to be protected from discrimination, and treated equally. Consistent with this belief, Target supports the federal Equality Act, which provides protections to LGBT individuals, and opposes action that enables discrimination.”

What Target has done has sparked a petition that so far has nearly 1,000,000 signed signatures pledging not to shop there because they oppose biological men going into women’s bathrooms. A statement from the American Family Association said, “This means a man can simply say he ‘feels like a woman today’ and enter the women’s restroom… even if young girls or women are already in there…”

Bill O’Reilly of Fox News said on the Factor (4/24/2016) that the Government should furnish three bathroom settings, one for males, one for females, and one for transgenders. But he also said that public businesses should not be forced by the Government to implement three bathrooms, that people who consider themselves as “transgender” should utilize public restrooms for obvious reasons.

Bath 2This craziness seems to have nationally become prominent as radical progressives point, “In Doe v. Regional School Unit, the Maine Supreme Court held that a transgender girl had a right to use the women’s bathroom at school because her psychological well-being and educational success depended on her transition. The school, in denying her access, had “treated [her] differently from other students solely because of her status as a transgender girl.”

The Court identified the boy in question as “Susan” not based on biology, but on sexual orientation, “RSU 26’s later decision to ban Susan from the girls’ bathroom, based not on a determination that there had been some change in Susan’s status but on others’ complaints about the school’s well-considered decision, constituted discrimination based on Susan’s sexual orientation,” clearly, the court determined that this was a form of discrimination. The boy “Susan’s” right to use the girl’s bathroom thwarted the rights of the girls who felt uncomfortable using the restroom with a biological boy using it.

Also, in another situation, another boy called Nicole was actually given access to the schools girls restroom but issues developed when another male student began following “Nicole” into the girls bathroom claiming that he was able to also use the girls bathroom.

bath 3In doing a little research into this, I can clearly see the liberal Progressives working to push their agenda wanting to “expose” myths against transgenders using opposite sex bathrooms. Just as the Liberal Progressives have pushed for Climate Change rhetoric to be fact (even though science does not support them), they are using the same tactic to defy common sense with bathroom use.

Where Progressives cannot win through the power of the vote, they push through using the courts against the vast majority calling it discrimination to oppose boys using girls bathrooms because of sexual orientation.

Some how, we have become left center in our politics, the Democrats today are so far left, their policies push for these outrages issues. The Progressive are becoming known as the “bathroom bullies”.

Because of the law against transgender men from using women’s bathrooms, the ACLU is claiming the bill “discriminates against lesbian-gay-bisexual-transgender-queers or LGBTQ people.” Josh Ernest, spokesman for President Obama called the North Carolina’s law “mean spirited.”

gigi 6“Mean spirited”? I just called my Wife, Gigi, who has been a traveling Nurse since 2011 told me when she was in Arizona, she stopped at one of the truck stops to use the restroom. Inside the Latrine, a Mexican man was exiting from a stall in the girls bathroom and Gigi just looked at him thinking, “What in the —- are you doing in here”? She was not happy finding a man in the women’s restroom.

Gigi gave me some insight you will never see coming from a liberal think tank! She said she does not feel comfortable (to put it mildly) being in a stall knowing that a guy is in the next stall? She gave some details I will not share here that most women would relate to and it should be obvious to the sane person. Gigi was very clear to say that if a man has a male appendage, he does not go into a women’s bathroom for common use.

bath 4Here are some response to Target’s policy I thought was interesting (using only first names):

Shelly: I used to enjoy shopping at your store, but if you cant protect our nations children, i wont be back! #targetbathroom #targetboycott 10:32 AM – 20 Apr 2016

Nonna: I will NEVER shop at .@Target as long as perverts allowed n same bathroom as my granddaughters/grandsons! It is an immoral invasion of privacy to allow perverts w/penises n bathrooms w/women, daughters, granddaughters!

The American family Association’s boycott states:

bath 6“Clearly, Target’s dangerous new policy poses a danger to wives and daughters. We think many customers will agree. And we think the average Target customer is willing to pledge to boycott Target stores until it makes protecting women and children a priority. One solution is a common-sense approach and a reasonable solution to the issue of transgendered customers: a unisex bathroom. Target should keep separate facilities for men and women, but for the trans community and for those who simply like using the bathroom alone, a single occupancy unisex option should be provided.” This is basically what Bill O’Reilly had said about Government facilities.

As a Father and a Grandfather, I certainly do not want my Daughter or Granddaughters to be placed in any danger which something like this could be a risk knowing that there are perverts out there. Perhaps the answer might be to have a separate latrine specific for “trangender” minded people. I guess I can see that in airports, truck stops, places of business, schools, government facilities make an accommodation kind of like how ramps were made for the disabled in wheel chairs to be able to get around.

bath 7As a Catholic, I will never accept the lifestyle of the Gay Agenda, it is against my deeply held belief’s in God’s Word. I believe the vast majority of Christians would agree with me. Unfortunately, as the Progressives continue to push forward their ultra-left-wing policies, the courts are discriminating against Christians.

Presidential Candidate Donald Trump told Bill O’Reilly in an interview that this whole issue of transgender should be a matter of the States and not the Federal Government. I agree with that assessment. North Carolina made their decision and that should be respected. Senator Ted Cruz also supports North Carolina’s decision as do I so perhaps each State can figure what is best for it’s people. I think the vast majority of transgender rooms will be rarely used. I believe that the Progressives are using this issue to attack Christians. Pure and simple, to make us yield to acceptance of a sinful lifestyle.

bath 8Here is a truth, the average male today is living in their 80′s, especially if they are 65 today. We are living longer and healthier. Yet, the homosexual male’s average today is between 41 and 42 years old. Disease, Drugs, Suicide are serious factors. It is a sad plight and the Progressives make it worse by trying to make policies making them feel better. We are to love the sinner but hate the sin. We must pray for people’s heart’s to be changed because it is there that people can know that if they think they were born gay, they can be born again.
