Pushing back a President in battle over bathrooms

unisex bathroom 2President Barack Obama has angered millions of Americans with his threat to withhold federal funds from public schools.

The threat was made last week, May 13, when a joint letter was sent to public school districts nationwide from the U.S. Department of Justice and U.S. Department of Education.

Governors and state legislators have pushed back, and millions of Americans predictably want to push back, too. But how do you?

It begins by paying attention every day to what is happening, Clarence Thomas, the U.S. Supreme Court justice, said in his May 14 commencement speech at Hillsdale College.

The anger felt by Americans, says Christian apologist Alex McFarland, comes from what Thomas Jefferson called "self-evident truth."  

"Other of our Founders called it natural law," McFarland tells OneNewsNow. "The Bible says it's written on the heart of all people."

In other words, McFarland says, most Americans understand that President Obama's left-wing ideology about sexuality is pushing against natural order and the battleground is a public school's restrooms and locker rooms.

The act of teaching biology and human physiology, David French writes at National Review Online, "will be hate speech unless it’s modified to conform to the new transgender 'facts.'"

Clarence Thomas at HillsdaleUnder such federal guidelines, French predicts, students will be taught "not only that their churches are factually wrong in their assessments of sex and gender but that they are actually bigoted and hateful — comparable to white supremacists."

The federal government, McFarland says, is endorsing, affirming and now legislating that which is false, immoral and unnatural.

"And that's unjust," he says.

Much like Clarence Thomas encouraging Hillsdale graduates to be aware and active citizens, McFarland says people must be willing to contact their elected officials and attend a local school board meeting.

McFarland, Alex (Christian apologist)"To be a stone in the shoe of a leader that is clueless or is doing things that are unjust or immoral," he says.

If such small acts are performed by millions of people who still believe in right and wrong, says McFarland, that is enough to overwhelm the work of homosexual activists – and even the agenda of the President of the United States.

"Do not hide your faith and your beliefs under a bushel basket," Thomas told Hillsdale, "especially in this world that seems to have gone mad with political correctness."
