Oh my. This is happening quickly. It’s not that we didn’t see it coming. But Obama is coming to the end of his term so he’s a radical in search of a legacy. This is madness. This is cultural engineering by fiat.
The Obama administration will issue a sweeping decree on Friday telling every U.S. public school district to allow transgender students to use the bathrooms that match their gender identity.
The letter, signed by officials from the Education and Justice departments, does not have the force of law but contains an implicit threat that schools which do not abide by the Obama administration’s interpretation of the law could face lawsuits or a loss of federal aid.
“There is no room in our schools for discrimination of any kind, including discrimination against transgender students on the basis of their sex,” U.S. Attorney General Loretta Lynch said in a statement.
“This guidance gives administrators, teachers, and parents the tools they need to protect transgender students from peer harassment and to identify and address unjust school policies,” she said.
Clearly, the administration will tie federal funding to all school districts bending to Obama’s will on this issue. Loretta Lynch, the attorney general, has already threatened North Carolina with highway and education funds over their bathroom bill.
This must be stopped.
There’s some good news here. As a Catholic I can’t help but think this is a major gift to Catholic schools. Sane parents who don’t want boys showering with girls will be forced to remove their children.
