Roy Cooper is a Democrat.

He also the Attorney General of North Carolina and he is running for governor. Mind you, this is the guy who is supposed to enforce law in his state – and yet he has announced that his office will NOT defend state officials and agencies if they’re sued overt the new Bathroom Bill.

That’s the new law that protects the public against having to do certain things for gays that they object to on religious grounds – and that prevents men from urinating in the ladies room if they identify as a woman.

This will undoubtedly enhance Cooper’s resume as a leftist, but it does little for the cause of freedom – especially religious freedom, which is now under assault. Besides, the NBA has threatened to pull their All-Star Game from Charlotte unless “transgenders” can use the bathroom of their choice – something very essential to basketball.

Georgia has already caved. North Carolina will cave next.

When Big Business (now mostly liberal in ideology) and major league sports team up with left-wing politicians such as those in New York and California, the pressure becomes unbearable. North Carolina will cave. Already the left-wing mayor of San Francisco has banned most travel by city employees to North Carolina.

On Monday, he was joined by left-wing New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo and left-wing New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio, both of whom issued bans on non-essential travel to North Carolina.

In Georgia, Gov. Nathan Deal promised to veto a bill intended to protect critics of same-sex marriage. He faced his critics at the state capitol, saying:

“In light of our history, I find it somewhat ironic that some in the religious community today feel that it is necessary for government to confer upon them certain rights and protections. If indeed our religious liberty is conferred upon us by God, and not by man-made government, perhaps we should simply heed the hands-off admonition of the First Amendment to the United States Constitution.”

That will show those nasty defenders of religious freedom. Deal, by the way, is a Republican in his second term. [At this point, I am hurrying to get this article posted before North Carolina caves.]

Which is more important? Religious freedom, saving the All-Star Game?

That’s easy. The All-Star game is far more important to big shots in North Carolina. Mark my word. Companies will threaten to stop doing business in North Carolina and shell-like ears will perk up in official circles. Pretty soon, a decision will be made. Typically, the decision is that [name the state] must be more “welcoming.”

Therefore [name the state] will toss out the bill that offered protections to Christians that want to practice their fate. It plays out over and over again.

So who will stand up for religious freedom?

The answer is: Not much of anybody. There will be pockets of resistance. But the NBA All-Star game is just too big a treasure to risk losing. So bring on the game! And to hell with religious freedom.
