Contrast, if you will, two different perspectives on the recent “bathroom bill” passed by the North Carolina legislature (“HB2”).
The first is from North Carolina governor Pat McCrory, as seen and heard in this video clip (4 min, 8 sec):
The second is from North Carolina CEO Bob Page in this statement to his customers, from which this is an excerpt:
Today, I take the unusual step of sending you a personal message. Perhaps you, like millions of others, have heard that North Carolina’s recent passage of House Bill 2 – which has been called the worst anti-LGBT bill in the United States – has provoked an outpouring of public concern. Among other things, HB2 bars cities, towns, and counties from prohibiting discrimination of any kind and makes clear that LGBT people may legally be singled out for unfair treatment in the workplace, housing, and public accommodations. [emphasis added]
Really? This is the “worst”?
As best I can tell, this inappropriately-hysterical perspective of Bob Page is winning the public relations battle so far. Otherwise normal people are said to be sharing his letter on FaceBook. The common sense promoted by North Carolina’s governor in the video seems to be losing out to the hysteria.
The secular mind now thinks there is something terribly wrong with wanting to protect, say, an eight-year-old girl from being confronted with sight that no occupant of the ladies’ room, regardless of age, should have to see.
The secular mind has lost its mind.
