Here is an email I received from Delegate Bob Marshall on Friday.
If President Obama and his administration refuse to recognize the biological difference between male and female, decline to acknowledge federal regulations that clearly state that separate bathroom and shower facilities for men and women do not create discrimination, fail to define or limit the scope of the word transgender and are willing to promote child abuse according to the American College of Pediatricians, they are not fit to retain their offices.
They compound this by threatening to blackmail states by withholding federal education funding for not complying with their newly discovered definition of “sex.” I call on Speaker Paul Ryan and Chairman of the Judiciary Committee, Bob Goodlatte to convene impeachment proceedings immediately for President Obama, Loretta Lynch and Secretary of Education, John King. If you agree sign the petition here.
President Obama has reached a new level of outrage with the letters that his Department of Education is sending out to states today informing them that they must implement policies allowing transgender individuals access to the bathroom and locker room facilities of their choice or risk losing Federal education funding. This comes on the heels of the U.S Department of Justice’s letter to the Governor of North Carolina alleging that H.B. 2 is in violation of Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, as well as Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 and the Violence Against Women Reauthorization Act of 2013.
President Obama and his administration are attempting to create a whole new definition for the word “sex” with regard to gender in order to bypass existing law. Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 prohibits employers from discriminating against individuals on the basis of “race, color, religion, sex, or -national origin.” “Sexual orientation” and “gender identity” are not protected classifications under federal law (42 U.S. Code §2000e).
Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 prohibits discrimination on the basis of sex in federally funded education programs and activities. However, the section of Title IX regarding “comparable facilities” states, “A recipient [of Title IX funds] may provide separate toilet, locker room, and shower facilities on the basis of sex,” (34 CFR 106.33).
The DOE is now interpreting “sex” to include “gender expression, gender identity, transgender status, gender transition, or nonconformity with sex stereotypes” but there is no basis in Federal law for them to do so and neither the President nor his administration have the authority to make these changes in the law. The Constitutional authority to make laws is given only to Congress, not the President and certainly not his Attorney General.
These attacks on human nature and our Constitution are so fundamental that they defy adequate description. Please consider signing the petition using the link above or the button below.
Thank you for your help.
Delegate Bob Marshall
Some people think the law or even the Constitution says whatever they think it should say. That’s either disillusional or dishonorable. Take your pick, but those are the people we have been electing. Therefore, we have much to be ashamed of.
Think not? Well, consider this.
The Obama administration has directed public schools to allow transgender students to use bathrooms and locker rooms consistent with their gender identity. (continued here)
Here is the Obama administration’s order (U.S. Departments of Justice and Education Release Joint Guidance to Help Schools Ensure the Civil Rights of Transgender Students). There is, of course, a threat to cut Federal funding. After all, if you don’t agree with their policy, you must be a meanie who hates and hates and hates.
Now consider what Ryan Sawyers, Chairman At-Large for the Prince William County School Board had to say about the matter.
Sawyers says the legal ramifications of the latest federal directive remain unclear, and it will be reviewed to do what’s best for Prince William County.
“I don’t have a problem with any student or any employee using the bathroom of their choice,” Sawyers said. (from here)
Sawyers is not some distant Washington D. C. official. He is a local guy we foisted upon ourselves.
Fortunately, some states have chosen to fight. That includes Texas. This video provides Gov. Greg Abbott’s (Texas gov. vows to fight White House over transgender issues) response to the issue. That includes the governor’s observation as to what is wrong. We have have turned the Constitution on its head.
Why would our president turn OUR Constitution on its head? Why would we let him do it? What is wrong with us? That is something we each need to think about, but one thing I think should be clear. For generations the parents of America’s children have given over responsibility for the education of their precious children to politicians, and that is an abysmally stupid thing to do. We used to be a Godly people, at least more so than we are now. Why would any parents who want to instill Godly values into their children trust politicians to do that for them? Why would any parents who believe in God send their children to a secularized school system that insists upon ignoring God’s existence? When the most important book ever written about the most important man who ever lived is the Bible, why would any Christian want to send their children to a school that treats the Bible as a subject of negligible educational value? Do you know? I sure don’t.
People say that school is for the secular world, and church is for the religious, but do the math. How many hours do our children spend in school? How many do they spend in church? Where does the Bible say we should not treat every hour of our lives — everything we do — as sacred to God? Even our work — our so-called secular work — we are suppose to do as our Lord would have us do it. Is that something our children will learn in a secularized school?
We never needed our government (particularly a bunch of power crazed bureaucrats appointed by President Obama) to educate our children. We just needed to work together in our churches or with nonprofit institutions that we chose. We just needed to take personal responsibility for getting the job done properly, and too many of us did not do so. So now we don’t even have the wisdom to insist that our president must obey the Constitution.
Anyway, we can only do one thing at a time. Please let our leaders know we don’t want our children to be the subject of their social engineering experiments. Then consider how you want cut the government back down to its proper size. Need a review? Then here is a good place to start.
