Let me first say, this has nothing to do with hate but everything to do with the safety of our children and their future. If we don’t take a bold stand, Christian voices will be silenced

Protect Our Children!
The Obama administration is ramping up its efforts to force public schools to allow students to use the restroom and locker rooms of the opposite sex. Boys who are clearly boys would be free to use the girls’ facilities and vice versa.
And if parents and students object? They are either ignored or vilified as bigots.
It’s all part of the U.S. Department of Education’s “Title IX Mandates” (Title IX is part of the U.S. Education Code governing federal rules for education).
These rules have been revised to provide special protections for “transgenderism” — boys or men who perceive on any given day they identify as a female, or women and girls who perceive they are male.
Schools that do not comply risk losing federal funding and may even be prosecuted by the Justice Department, which has also redefined sex discrimination to include sexual orientation and “gender identity” (the new term for males who think they are females and vice versa).
FRC has a plan to counteract this outrage, and you are part of it. But first, let me explain why public school restrooms have become “Ground Zero” in the effort to destroy Christian morality, religious freedom, and the next generation, using “gender identity” as a weapon.
Let’s answer some of the most pressing questions I am often asked:
QUESTION: “Why is the Obama administration trying to mainstream ‘transgenderism’ and force schools to accommodate students who want to use the bathrooms and locker rooms of the opposite sex?
ANSWER: It’s all part of a radical movement trying to destroy the fact that God created man and woman — and that somehow people can choose what gender they want to be. The ultimate goal is to break down all sexual inhibition and morality — a goal that would result in social chaos.
And the only way they can pull off this scheme? Big government.
Think of it. If government can force the “normalization” or even the celebration of something as universally unnatural as men using women’s restrooms and vice versa, then it can force the rest of its agenda on the American people very easily.
And consider this, if the White House can dictate the bathroom policies of the nation, then what is beyond its reach? The answer is absolutely nothing.
QUESTION: “Do you think that the ultimate goal is to destroy the impact of Christianity in our country?”
ANSWER: Definitely, yes.
Christianity is a hindrance to what the secularists in the Obama administration and “Progressive” special interest groups ultimately want to do.
QUESTION: “The federal government . . . state governments . . . municipalities . . . even corporations and pro sports teams seem to be pushing special rights based on sexual orientation and gender identity. Can we really turn back the tide?”
ANSWER: Yes! We can and will if we have the courage to take a stand and call this foolishness what it is. But we are at a point where Christians have to lose their fear of what other people say — or do.
That’s exactly what North Carolina Governor Pat McCrory (R) is doing. When his state chose to protect women, children, and others by repealing a Charlotte ordinance that would have punished businesses that designate restrooms for men only and women only, Obama’s Department of Justice sent a letter threatening action against North Carolina. On Monday, Governor McCrory decided to respond by going on the offensive suing the government for the administration’s overreach.
By God’s grace and your support, we can win.
In Washington, D.C., FRC is educating conservatives in Congress to help them understand and effectively address the social issues that are the root cause of America’s moral slide. At the top of our agenda is federal legislation that defends the First Amendment rights of Christians who, for reasons of faith, cannot affirm same-sex marriage and need protection from government persecution.
FRC is also voicing opposition to the U.S. Department of Education’s redefinition of sexual discrimination to include transgenderism. We give people across the country the assurance that it is NOT bigoted to stand up for the biological truth that a man is a man and a woman is a woman.
By arming leaders and everyday Americans with the facts, FRC provides the backbone Christians need to make a difference. It is simply not enough to curse the darkness. We need to drive darkness away with the light of compelling truth — well-researched facts and irrefutable arguments.
But we must act quickly and decisively. Without the necessary financial resources, FRC will not be able to meet the many challenges ahead. I am counting on you to come through at this most critical time for our country.
Please send as generous a contribution as you can. Our team of experts will put your funds to immediate use in every way I outlined above.
Thank you in advance for your generous gift as we face this most critical struggle.

P.S. One more urgent matter: FRC’s fiscal year ends on June 30. We must receive an additional $3 million by that date to meet our budget. Please consider giving extra this month to help us reach this important financial goal. Thank you!
