Gender Identity

This scene above is starting to happen in hundreds of cities and states across America.

Kansans, what will we do to stand up for what we believe?

On August 12, Governor Jerry Brown signed into law Assembly Bill (AB) 1266, the bill giving students claiming to be transgender the freedom to participate on opposite-sex athletic teams and all other gender-specific public school activities of the opposite sex.  Boys and girls in California get to decide whether they feel like a boy or a girl and depending on their choice.  According to the California Family Alliance any student from Kindergarten through 12th grade who refers to him or herself as the sexual opposite of their biological gender, to participate in gender-specific school activities, clubs, and sports teams, with full access to opposite-sex bathrooms, locker rooms, showers, etc. This literally means that a boy may declare himself a girl and by so doing may participate on the girls’ tennis, soccer, or water polo teams, as examples, and use the same locker facilities.

Do you want these types of laws coming to Kansas as they are now enforced in California, Arizona, Delaware and many more?

Christians in Kansas need to be prepared to be on the offensive when it comes to our laws and ordinances voted on in our communities. Topeka successfully passed an ordinance by adding “sexual orientation and gender identity” to the express list of targets for the elimination of prejudice within the City of Topeka. Since the victory for sexual orientation ordinance in Topeka, threats have come forth in Wichita and I’m sure other areas we’ll hear about soon.

It’s time for Christians to stop being politically correct and as Dr. Ben Carson says, get some backbone and speak up for the protection of our rights, freedoms, and families.

It’s time to educate yourself and then help your local city council. Let them know that you will be contacting the Alliance Defending Freedom organization to get prepared. In Manhattan, they did an outstanding job articulating the issue and winning. Parents and grandparents please don’t think you can ignore this problem. It’s not going to go away and we must get in the battle.  It’s not too late for Topeka, but it’s much easier when we’re not reacting, but are on offense because we’ve prepared and educated ourselves.

Don’t sit on the sideline and let this continue to happen in OUR state.
