We all remember when the City of Charlotte forced the state’s hand on restrooms. They decided that they would press an issue that had not ever been an issue. They were going to make a statement.
Though they were warned that this would cause the North Carolina State legislature to act, they ignored the consequences and passed a law allowing men to use the women’s restroom and locker rooms. This prompted the legislature to pass HB2, the now infamous law on bathroom use in NC.
Now, it seems that Texas wishes to avoid such a showdown in their state and have preempted with a bill of their own.
Christian News reports:
A Texas lawmaker has introduced a bill that would require those using restrooms and locker rooms in government buildings and public schools to use the facility that corresponds with the gender on their birth certificate.
Senate Bill 6, also known as the Texas Privacy Act, was filed by Sen. Lois Kolkhorst, R–Brenham, on Friday.
The measure is three-pronged: It prohibits local municipalities from creating ordinances that control restroom usage at private businesses, requires those who use lavatories or locker rooms at government buildings and schools to use the men’s room if they were born a man and vice versa, and increases criminal penalties for crimes committed in restrooms, dressing rooms or locker rooms.
“A political subdivision or state agency with control over multiple-occupancy bathrooms or changing facilities in a building owned or leased by this state or the political subdivision, as applicable, shall develop a policy requiring each multiple occupancy bathroom or changing facility located in the building to be designated for and used only by persons of the same biological sex,” S.B. 6 reads in part.
Just such a bill has caused a lot of anger against the state of North Carolina. But it only makes sense if we are going to see the state government fulfill its God-ordained purpose; i.e., the protection of its citizens and the punishment of evil.
The difference is that the state of Texas is the second largest economy in America. Who will suffer more from an economic boycott by the Homosexual Agenda?
