A jury decided last month that the Independent Women's Football League violated the Minnesota Human Rights Act by not allowing "Christina" Ginther to compete against other women. 

"Christina" was awarded $20,000 in damages because the league prohibited males from playing due to the obvious safety issues.

Ginthen demanded to join Vixen, a semi-pro team, and said he felt "violated" after he was told biological males weren't allowed to join, Minnesota Public Radio reported.

"The muscle and skeleton system of a male is always going to be superior no matter what hormone treatment is given."

OneNewsNow has reported how the push for transgender rights by LGBT activists has upended sports, from the Boston Marathon bowing to transgender demands to grueling fitness regimen CrossFit allowing a man who goes by "Chloie" (pictured aboveto compete in its annual games.

"This will spill out to every situation," predicts McConkey, "where a transgender has felt like their rights have been violated, and this will come into employment situations. This will come into the church. This will explode everywhere."

This is a new challenge for the Church, he adds, but it must be addressed from the biblical belief that God created males and females.
