With Texas leading the way, these 11 states are telling Barack Obama and Loretta Lynch to butt out of the bathroom wars.

But hold on!

Everybody knows there’s a right to privacy in the Constitution that gives the Feds the right to sue. That’s how we got a woman’s right to choose. This is about a transgender’s right to choose.

That’s my way of explaining why Obama and Lynch will probably win.

We got Roe v Wade based on a “right” that is not in there – so why not use that same right to go after the states now? On the surface, you’d think that the Federal Government has no interest in local schools and their bathroom rules. But this is progressive social experimentation — something that Obama eats up. Eliminating gender barriers for restrooms is another way Obama can transform America. He and Lynch will give it their best shot.

The states are right to sue.

Obama has made everything his business, but most of it should not be. In a federal system, and under the Constitution, it’s crucial that states fight for rights that belong to them. Here what they said in the lawsuit:

“Defendants have conspired to turn workplace and educational settings across the country into laboratories for a massive social experiment, flouting the democratic process, and running roughshod over commonsense policies protecting children and basic privacy rights.”

In other words – it’s none of the Federal Government’s business to get involved in this issue.

According to Reuters, Texas (the lead plaintiff) was joined by Alabama, Wisconsin, West Virginia, Tennessee, Oklahoma, Louisiana, Utah and Georgia, plus the Arizona Department of Education and the governor of Maine. School districts from Texas and Arizona also joined the suit, which names the U.S. government and a host of federal agencies and officials as defendants.

OTHER DEVELOPMENTS IN THE CONTINUING SAGA OF LGBT RIGHTS.

• Black pastors say civil rights and gay rights are not the same.

In Raleigh, some 40 pastors, mostly black, demonstrated on the state capitol grounds to protest the insane idea that the new push for homosexual rights is akin to the 1960s Civil Rights movement. Clarence Henderson, one of the students that participated in sit-ins at the Woolworth’s Diner in Greensboro in 1960 wrote an op-ed in the Charlotte Observer to opine that there is no comparison. Henderson is right on the money. (Started to say on Target – but –)

Being black is a pretty normal thing if your parents were black. Being gay is a disorder. Being trans is a very serious disorder. Good for Clarence Henderson.

• Dallas Morning news op-ed attacks pastor Robert Jeffress.

Here goes the DMN again. This far-left, former conservative, newspaper is on the warpath because Jeffress, who leads the 12,000-member First Baptist Chirch of Dallas said on a radio show:

“There’s a new motto: Don’t mess with Texas bathrooms.”

Jeffress also said that the greatest threat to freedom of religion is not ISIS but the politically correct “chamber of commerce” culture around the transgender issue. Then, the Dallas Morning News waxed in-eloquently about the “medical reality of transgender identity.” I wonder if they’d carry my column suggesting that there is no such thing as transgendered? (I’ll take that as a “no.”)

Jeffress is right, of course. The world knows the evil of ISIS and is mounting a fight against it. The world does not recognize the threat of the gay agenda, which is the opposite of the Christian faith. When Obama throws all his support behind gay issues, he is essentially attacking the family and Christianity.

If the Dallas Morning News editorial wasn’t bad enough, they unleashed a left-wing columnist on Jeffress as well. 

Robert Wilonsky

Robert Wilonsky

 You’ll just have to excuse Pastor Jeffress. He still holds to the old, outdated traditions like marriage between a man and a woman and the idea that men are men and women are women. How quaint.

Robert Wilonsky, on the other hand, is more enlightened. He writes:

“Dallas has become a city that considers itself progressive and tolerant, where ‘gender identity and expression’ are part of the city s anti-discrimination ordinance. We’re supposed to be enlightened now, no longer the City of Hate.”

He attacks Jeffress bitterly, saying that the pastor’s comments are “how he makes his mammon.” This is what hate really is. Wilonsky is a simple liberal – no more, no less. He buys into the “if it feels good, do it” philosophy of the 1960s, yet accuses Jeffress of dwelling in the past.

The problem with denigrating” the past” is that a lot of the old, traditional values are the glue that have held society together. That glue is coming apart and the more it does, the more the country comes apart as well. Look at South Chicago, Ferguson, Baltimore – South Dallas – where fathers are in short supply but crime is not. We’ve always had crime. But conservative mayors like Rudolph Giuliani in New York instigated commonsense measures to hold it down. The new, progressive mayor ended those policies and crime is way up.

The long and the short of it: Jeffress is right. We need some standards in order to have a country. Some things should be set in stone, even if progressives don’t like it.

To Pastor Jeffress: Having someone like Robert Wilonsky attack you is not a big deal. Wear it as a badge of honor.

• The Texas Senate Republican Caucus tries “nullification.”

The Caucus is urging Texas school superintendents to simply ignore the Obama/Lynch directive on bathrooms. The GOP senators say that the directive is an illegal attempt to cerate a new law by claiming that Title IX applies to gender identity.

Robert Wilonsky! Are you listening?

I suppose not. The progressive mind closed decades ago. But the Texas senators are saying that using some common sense could solve the bathroom issue. That sounds suspiciously like logic. Maybe, like, if you have a penis (as Bruce Jenner does) you go to the men’s room. If not, you use the women’s room. Sounds simple.

But with Obama, Lynch, the Dallas Morning News Editorial Board, Robert Wilonsky, and other left-wing radicals – not much is logical. But all things are progressive. Thank God for Jeffress, Clarence Henderson, all 11 states that sued, and for Mark Davis of KSKY – the lone remaining conservative voice in the Dallas Morning News.
