In blatant politicization, the Department of Justice has launched a pro-LGBT campaign against every state and many businesses in our nation. They are coercing state officials and business owners to advance the misguided and dangerous transsexual agenda.
North Carolina Governor Pat Mc Crory announced today that he has filed a lawsuit against the federal government's Department of Justice for what the Governor labeled as, "[T]he federal government being a bully. It's making law... and by their interpretation."
The DOJ is egregiously expanding the Civil Rights Act of 1964 to include the law's prohibition of discrimination based on "sex" to now include "gender identity."
The Governor said in his press release,
"The Obama administration is bypassing Congress by attempting to rewrite the law and set restroom policies for public and private employers across the country, not just North Carolina. This is now a national issue that applies to every state and it needs to be resolved at the federal level. They are now telling every government agency and every company that employs more than 15 people that men should be allowed to use a women's locker room, restroom or shower facility."
The latest DOJ assault began last week when the Civil Rights Division sent a letter to Governor McCrory which stated HB 2, North Carolina's Public Facilities Privacy and Security Act, is in violation of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. In line with President Obama's agenda, the DOJ threatens to withhold federal funds from North Carolina if HB 2 is not repealed.
Governor McCrory was given until the end of the day today to inform the DOJ whether he will surrender to the Department of Justice's demand. Thankfully, the governor did not surrender.
