Rothschild: When the Shield becomes a Sword

The Obama administration continues its attacks on traditional values and common sense sensibilities by threatening to withhold billions in federal aid unless North Carolina repeals its bill that requires people to use the bathroom or locker room that conforms to their biological sex.

Welcome to a replay of Sodom and Gomorrah where federal oligarchs, formerly known as judges or prosecutors, now anoint themselves with dictatorial power to rewrite laws and promulgate the most perverse form of twisted morality and depraved values.

Imagine the stress and insult this will place on your daughter, student, wife or mother, when to their shock and dismay, a man who "gender identifies" as a female walks into the shower or locker room at school or the local health club.

How can this happen?

In the godless world of government, some people's values are apparently more equal than others. A woman's right to privacy while nude now takes a backseat to the feelings of a gay or bisexual man that declares his gender identity to be female.

It happens when America places officials into office that are willing to turn their backs on the God of the Bible that served as the basis for law and morality in America.

Equal Rights laws, originally intended to serve as a shield to protect minorities, are now inverted and used as an offensive sword to strike-down sensibilities of Judeo-Christian civilization that served America well for 200 years.

Do I oppose reasonable accommodations for people with unique sexual/transgender identity issues? No. But, recently, the Fourth Circuit Court opined a Virginia School discriminated "on the basis of sex" in violation of Title IX when it barred "G.G.," a transgender student, from using facilities of the opposite anatomical sex. Separate private accommodations were not acceptable.

What might this mean?

It means a nightmare, especially for women and children. Make no mistake … if activists prevail, a man with a feminine libido may conceivably have the right to enter a girls' locker room or shower. Someone else's "gender identity" may transcend your daughter's right to privacy while nude.

And, of course, every special interest group's rights transcend Judeo-Christian sensibilities that are the ultimate targets of these attacks.

Let's look at federal laws (the shield) that have now been turned into a "sword" to decapitate time-honored sensibilities we have taken for granted in our Judeo-Christian civilization.

Title IX of the Education Amendments Act of 1972 prohibits, on the basis of sex, excluding anyone from participation in any education program or activity receiving Federal financial assistance. Does this mean that taking a shower with a member of the opposite anatomical sex is now an "education program" as may be inferred by activists' interpretations?

Paradoxically, Title IX does not prohibit separate locker rooms, showers or bathrooms for members of the opposite "sex." But wait … it appears the courts are rewriting Title IX by equating "gender identity" to "sex."

Perhaps some judges believe America is an oligarchy, and they are the appointed oligarchs that can rewrite and change existing laws to suit their own divine agendas in support of twilight zone interpretations of social justice?

John Adams explained, "Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other." Unfortunately, when Christians and Jews fail to stand for their beliefs, the opposite agenda advances, and we reap what they sow. The enemy does this to us because we let them.

Unfortunately, as of Friday, Obama's Department of Education, ever eager to transform America, has now ordered transgender facilities in Carroll County and nationwide. The citizens, commissioners, and the Board of Education will only have two choices ... surrender or fight.

I call on parents and officials in Carroll County to take a stand for virtue, in defense of our children ... and I call on the commissioners to work together to devise strategies to protect our children from perversions cast upon us by outside forces that have no respect for our women and children, and no respect for values that serve America well.

Now is the time for Carroll and other conservative counties across America to unite and fight for what is right. Evil prevails only when good men and women do nothing.

Richard Rothschild is a Republican Carroll County commissioner representing District 4.
