Here we go.
We knew this was coming.
When Biden signed the executive order for “gender equality,” what he was really signing was permission for the violation of Christian protections and common decency.
According to this new law, colleges, including Christian colleges, must allow biological men to share common bedrooms and bathrooms with women.
According to The Blaze:
A federal judge this week rejected a Christian college’s request to bypass new rules under the Biden administration that force religious schools to open their dormitories — including shared bedrooms and shower spaces — to members of the opposite sex.
Judge Roseann Ketchmark issued the ruling Wednesday denying the College of the Ozarks a temporary restraining order and a preliminary injunction, which would have provided temporary protection for the school while its federal court case is pending.
The school filed a lawsuit in April arguing that the Biden administration was forcing religious schools to violate their beliefs by opening up female dormitories to biological males, and vice-versa, under subject of punitive damages, six-figure fines, and attorneys’ fees.

Judge Sides with Biden, Rules Christian College Must Allow Men to Share Showers with Women via @WestJournalism https://t.co/sh0b3nYAZX -Is this judge a man or a woman? Where are the women judges voicing their opinions about this? They are either not speaking or not given voice!

How sick is this?
While colleges create “safe spaces” for the discussion of racism, where is the safe space for Christian women who just want to protect their modesty?
Why not designate a separate bathroom for transgender people?
And just to be clear… the definition of transgender no longer means someone who has undergone operations to change their sex.
This is the definition of transgender according to GLAAD:
Transgender (adj.)An umbrella term for people whose gender identity differs from the sex they were assigned at birth. People under the transgender umbrella may describe themselves using one or more of a wide variety of terms – including transgender. Some of those terms are defined below. Use the descriptive term preferred by the person. Many transgender people are prescribed hormones by their doctors to bring their bodies into alignment with their gender identity. Some undergo surgery as well. But not all transgender people can or will take those steps, and a transgender identity is not dependent upon physical appearance or medical procedures.
In case your eyes glazed over reading the lengthy definition, let me rewrite that last line:
“A transgender identity is not dependent upon physical appearance or medical procedures.”
In other words, just take their word for it. And let them into the shower with your daughter.
The college of Ozarks just lost the first battle against this craziness.
According to The Tampa Free Press:
Judge Roseann Ketchmark of the District Court of Western Missouri ruled against the College of the Ozarks, a Christian college which had sued President Joe Biden’s administration over its transgender discrimination policies, lawyers representing the school said Wednesday evening. The college had challenged Biden over his Jan. 20 executive order, which prevented schools from denying children access to bathrooms of their choosing.
“Women shouldn’t be forced to share private spaces, including showers and dorm rooms with males, and religious schools shouldn’t be punished simply because of their beliefs about biological sex,” Julie Marie Blake, senior counsel for the Alliance Defending Freedom (ADF), told reporters following the ruling Wednesday evening.
“The Biden administration’s overreach continues to victimize women, girls and people of faith by gutting their legal protections, and it must be stopped,” she continued.
The College of the Ozarks filed the lawsuit against Biden and the Department of Housing and Urban Development in April, two months after Biden signed the order. The school had argued that the government cannot force a private religious school to place biological males into female dormitories.
The college faces six-figure fines if it violates the Biden administration’s order.
School administrators said they expected to appeal Ketchmark’s decision.
“While we are disappointed in today’s ruling, we expect to appeal so that schools are not forced to open girls dorms to males and violate their religious beliefs,” College of the Ozarks Chief Communications Officer Valerie Coleman said during the Wednesday press briefing.
“We will continue to fight,” she said.
For the sake of Christian women, but more importantly for the sake of common decency in this country I pray they win this fight.
