The founder of a global interfaith coalition equipping Christians to defend the family and build a civilization of love does not have much sympathy for the crossdressing individuals Down Under who claim their careers were harmed while trying to force their ideology on others.
Two Australian drag queens are suing Christian leader Lyle Shelton for picketing a drag queen story hour at a Brisbane library and for posting blogs referring to them as dangerous role models.
The two men, who dress as women, claim their careers have been harmed and that they have suffered emotionally, so they want Shelton to apologize, to remove his blog posts, to pay them for damages, and to be under a gag order for the rest of his life.
"To my mind, what this really is is what you would call lawfare," responds Dr. Jennifer Roback Morse of the Ruth Institute. "They can't win in public opinion. There's no crime committed; he hasn't done anything wrong, so they're trying to use this frivolous lawsuit to harass and punish him."
Australia, England, and the U.S. use common law, so lawsuits will likely continue to be used in those countries to accomplish what homosexuals have achieved, including acceptance in law of their lifestyle.
"If you're going to dress as women and try to make money dressing as women … I just don't have too much sympathy with that particular career choice being harmed," Morse responds to the claim of harm.
And while many see no harm in trying to make drag queens role models for children, several individuals who have been featured in transgender story hours at public libraries in the states have since been exposed as having police records.
