From a diligent poster at the 4 Real Forum comes news of the passage of Colorado's SB 200, which is quite likely the most sweeping pro-perversion piece of legislation ever signed into law.
Not only are parts of the law quite likely to be found unconstitutional in their breathtaking disregard for the rights of free speech, freedom of religion, and peaceful assembly, but as dedicated pro-family groups point out, the effects of the law are going to involve the violation of women's rights, especially their right to use gender-specific private areas like dressing rooms, bathrooms and health club facilities without having to worry that a man is in the area.
Under SB 200, how a man decides he feels about his gender is more important than what his gender actually is. So any man who claims to be transgendered can walk into women's restrooms, locker rooms, health clubs and retail-store dressing rooms without having to announce his presence; he doesn't even have to be dressed like a woman to have this "right."
And since the word "transgender" isn't defined either in the bill or in Colorado law, any man can claim to be "transgendered" and saunter casually into any female-specific public area--he can't be stopped, questioned, or arrested. The bill's ambiguous language will have the effect of making the whole concept of gender specificity illegal or dubious at best, meaning that eventually every public accommodation will have to be unisex or face threats of lawsuits from various so-called "sexual minorities."
Of course, as some business owners have already discussed, the fear of these lawsuits will eventually amount to special treatment for all gays, lesbians, bisexuals, transgendered, questioning, species-confused, and any other category of sexual perversion that might eventually be created. One landlord used the example of non-payment of rent: if he tries to evict a couple only to discover that they're in a "special" category, will he face legal action? I can imagine other business owners being alarmed about this; last time I checked, most restaurants had signs claiming the right to refuse service to anyone, but I'll bet in the future the unspoken concept behind those signs will be "anyone but specially-protected sexual minorities, because if we refuse them service even if they come in drunk and abusive, we'll get sued out of business."
And then there are other possible results of this unconscionable law: will stores have to show same-sex couples and transgendered people in every advertisement if they want to do business in Colorado? Will story books for children have to feature a certain number of "sexually diverse" families to be sold in bookstores in Colorado? Will public schools in Colorado be sued for failing to teach kindergarten students what the word "transgender" means, possibly employing dolls and puppets who morph from Dan to Dana and back again? Will women's lingerie shops be sued for failing to provide brassieres suitable for male-to-female gender transitioning?
Although SB 200 defines churches as not being places of public accommodation and therefore not required to implement all of the insanity this law requires, it's pretty obvious that the exemption is for church buildings alone, and not for religious believers. So if you own a Catholic bookstore, for instance, you'll have to follow this law as it applies to your business--which may mean that shelves devoted to gender-specific religious books won't be allowed, and if you carry "his/her" bridal rosary sets you'd better be prepared to sell "his/his" and "her/her" sets as well, or some perverted loon will slap you with a lawsuit for failing to pander to his sad and sinful conception of him/her/itself.
It's hard to see these sort of things happening and not see the hand of Satan. His undying hatred for all that is good or noble or innocent is unleashing the most furious attacks on the family that have ever been witnessed; his agents and tools will not rest until the concept of Holy Matrimony and its accompanying duties of husband and wife, of parents and children, of family and society, are swept away and replaced with the hellish vision of miserable souls degrading themselves and each other, and dragging the innocent with them into the pit. This contemptible law thrust like a poisoned dagger into the hearts of the good families of Colorado is yet another salvo in this war that is not only a war on culture, but on the foundation and source of all human society--the family.
