I Don’t Know, But They Seem To Have An Abnormal Fixation On Bathrooms.

The far right wing conservatives seem to be worrying over what people are doing in bathroom. Somehow, I think that they are obsessing on it; I really think that they should seek professional help in overcoming their obsession. What other people are doing in the stall next to them is really none of their business.

They are paranoid that someone who is peacefully going about their business in the stall next to them might have horns and carry a pitchfork.

Mother Jones has an article about their paranoia behavior…
The Religious Right's Potty Paranoia
Why social conservatives are freaking out over a proposed law to protect gay rights in the workplace.

By Stephanie Mencimer

The next big culture war battle is about to be waged in an unlikely place: the restroom. After many years, Congress may finally have the votes to pass the Employment Non-Discrimination Act (ENDA). The measure, which the Obama administration views as key to advancing gay rights, would ban workplace discrimination against gays, lesbians, and transgendered people. But Christian right groups are fighting the legislation—on the grounds that it would force businesses to allow transgendered and "transitioning" men and women to use opposite-sex restrooms or face lawsuits from the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission.

The Traditional Values Coalition, a major foe of ENDA, has written a lengthy report on the potential dangers of the legislation, and the bathroom crisis is high on the list. As proof of the coming bathroom integration, it cites a Seattle incident in which two women who were taking male hormones were thrown out of a men's room at the Washington convention center. The women were staging a "pee-in" as part of a Gender Odyssey Conference, but TVC sees "she-men" invading the hallowed confines of men's restrooms everywhere should ENDA pass.
OMG! The nerve of men wanting to pee in the men’s room. What will come next? Women wanting to pee in the women’s room? Their fears are groundless! There has NEVER been a sexual assault by a trans-person. I have letters from government officials, such as state Attorney Generals, state Human Rights Commissioners, stating that in their states no one dressed as a women nor anyone has ever used the anti-discrimination laws as a defense in sexual assault. In addition, women anti-violence organization back gender inclusive anti-discrimination laws. However, that doesn’t the ring wing conservation from spreading their lies and fear. They have called ENDA the "Transgendered Bathrooms for Business" bill. For more information read “Peeing in Peace” by the Transgender Law Center.
Conservative activists warn that by pushing ENDA, the Obama administration is embracing not just the homosexual agenda, but that of liberal atheist George Soros.
Oh no, it’s that slippery slope again! But lets not talk about the conservative agenda to have society go back to the 1950’s, to “Father Knows Best” era. They want us to go back to the time of backroom abortions, just look at the Sen. Ben Nelson, (D-Neb) and Rep. Bart Stupak (D-MI) amendments that limit abortion funding. With the right wing conservative win in California against marriage equality, they are now aiming their sights to ban divorce! You don’t believe me? Well they have a petition drive to get it on the ballot that is sponsored by, “No On Prop 8”
A Petition for a California State Proposition that Prohibits Divorce Between Heterosexual Married Couples
Divorce destroys the sanctity of marriage and its powerful influence on the betterment of society. This proposition would keep the very meaning of marriage from being transformed into nothing more than a contractual relationship between two adults. Prohibiting divorce between heterosexual married couples will keep the interests of children and families intact. We will continue to celebrate marriage as the union of husband and wife, not as a relationship between "Party A" and "Party B." The marriage of a man and a woman has been at the heart of society since the beginning of time and it promotes the ideal opportunity for children to be raised by a mother and a father in a family held together by the legal, communal, and spiritual bonds of marriage. As a society we should put the best interests of children first, and those interests lie in traditional marriage. Permitting divorce destroys marriage as we know it and causes a profound harm to society. We should be restoring marriage, not undermining it.
They will keep pushing their ring wing conservation beliefs on us until homosexualism, abortion, and divorce are all against the law again.

When religion and bigotry mix, reason and compassion are the casualties.
