I Prayed have prayed

A Christian secondary school is suing the White House over a directive concerning access, sex, and privacy.

In January, Joe Biden signed an executive order mandating that colleges make single-sex facilities available to any who identify with the corresponding gender. Such settings include dorms and restrooms.

Hence, as reported by The Washington Free Beacon, Missouri’s College of the Ozarks has filed against the administration.

According to the suit, the order requires the school of just over 1,400 to violate its religious convictions.

Per Thursday’s filing:

By promulgating a Directive imposing liability on colleges with religious objections to sex before marriage or to transgender theory, Defendants have targeted the College’s religious beliefs and practices and shown hostility toward them. The Directive, and Defendants’ enforcement of it, imposes impermissible burdens on the exercise of religion in violation of the First Amendment of the U.S. Constitution.

The College of the Ozarks, as you likely know, isn’t nearly alone in its challenge to Biden’s stance on sex vs. gender. . . .

The Alabama legislature passed a bill banning biological males from competing in women’s sports.

If Gov. Kay Ivey signs it into law, Bama will become the fifth state to approve such a measure.

Beyond that, nearly 30 states are considering similar legislation.

The issue’s been percolating for quite some time: Long before he was elected, the President had promised he’d be getting to the Equality Act immediately. . . .

Even Oreo’s dipped itself into the issue:

As noted by the Free Beacon, the institution wants to keep to its foundations of faith:

“A lot of schools like the College of the Ozarks have historically separated their dormitories based on sex,” said Ryan Bangert, senior counsel and vice president of legal strategy for the Alliance Defending Freedom, which is representing the college. Bangert said the college has a code of conduct that requires students to conduct themselves in ways that comport with biblical teachings about sex. Part of the way the school maintains that tradition is sex-separated dorms.

Ryan asserts that, in this case, it’s a question of religious liberty:

“No one denies the need to treat every person with dignity. What we’re talking about is the government forcing religious institutions to violate their religious beliefs under threat of government sanction… This is not a singular event. This is part of an agenda.” . . .

One thing’s for sure: Concerning the subject of biological males entering women’s sports and ladies locker rooms, the country has reached a fork in the road.

And each side takes us in a radically different direction. . . .

Lord, I pray for the (President) and (Vice President) that you change their hearts and souls so they can see that they cannot rule over all and take out Christian beliefs from us. Soften their hearts and souls. God you can rule to all those that believe. Amen!

Dear Lord God, Strengthen and be made heard those walking for you. We are not few, but some are meek. We know you made separate sexes and it is up to us, through you,to keep ourselves from sexual sin. Please help us, your believers, to stop those who are attempting to promote their insane and sinful ways upon your children. Let us speak up and be heard through Jesus Christ!!!

We praise You for You are our Creator. You created us male and female and the distinction is both beautiful and clear. We understand that sin has corrupted Your creation and we are seeing the consequences of that corruption. We are living out Romans 1 because of our choices “exchanging the Truth of God for a lie, worshiping and serving the created instead of the Creator.” Help us, Father God to stand firm. Please strengthen those who are declaring Your Truth and living out their convictions. Help us to stand with them and to pray for them. Grant us discernment and boldness through Your Holy Spirit that we too would stand firm and share Christ without compromising Your Precepts! It is a time of separation the wheat from the chaff, the sheep from the goats. May we be the strong, committed and faithful remanent! Be exalted, Oh Lord above the heavens, let Your glory be over all the earth as we wait for Your soon return! Maranatha Lord Jesus..come quickly in You Name we pray!

We have been so desensitized regarding evil, pornography and sanctity of life that our moral code is no longer evident.
I am repulsed by the statements of Pelosi, Shumer, Waters, Cortez, Biden and Harris. I vow to not support them or the major companies that fled the US for China and moved the All Star game from Georgia to Colorado.

It would appear that diversity is out the window and conformity at the expense of uniqueness which is one of our Country’s strength is being flushed ! Dr MacVittie
