Odd alliance against 'bathroom rights' for transgenders

gender confusionIt appears some in the radical homosexual movement are drawing a line on how far their liberal views should go.

Cultural analyst Laurie Higgins, an outspoken critic of the homosexual movement, finds it ironic that she has found common ground with some in that community. The Illinois Family Institute spokeswoman says it appears that many in the homosexual community object – just as heterosexuals do – to transgender men and women invading their "personal space."

"Now we Christians, we conservatives are aligned with some homosexuals in opposition to men and women pretending to be the opposite sex and wanting unrestricted access to locker rooms and restrooms," she explains.

As OneNewsNow columnist Bryan Fischer pointed out last week, pro-homosexual groups are circulating a petition against what they describe as an "infringement on the rights of individuals, particularly women" that "men claiming to be transgender [are] demanding access to bathrooms, locker rooms, women's shelters and other such spaces reserved for women."

Higgins contends the media is intentionally not reporting this rift within the homosexual community. But she says according to theologian and Idaho pastor Doug Wilson, disagreements within radical groups are fairly common.

"He said [at our recent banquet] that all idolatrous worldviews ultimately end in contradictions," she recalls.

The cultural analyst notes while there may be some backlash involved in this situation, Christians and conservatives must continue to make their voices heard. The pro-homosexual activists, she says, aren't going away.
