It Is Always “The Bathroom”

When conservatives are losing their fall back strategy is to lie and create fear. Even through there has never been a case where someone used an anti-discrimination law to attacking a women or a girl in a bathroom that does stop the conservative from lying about it. For them the ends justify the means. It doesn’t matter what side of the boarder you are on.

Michele Lentz, state coordinator of the Child Protection League, said its members wanted to alert parents to the discussion of transgender athletes because the issue seemed to be flying under the radar.


"The parents that we're talking to are up in arms. They didn't know that this was going on. They didn't know that this policy was being considered and they're appalled."

According to its website, the Child Protection League aims to protect all children from "exploitation, indoctrination and violence." Lentz said the group's members believe gender is determined by biology and genetics, not choice.

The Minnesota Child Protection League is touring state tea parties and religious groups with presentations that contain factual inaccuracies and promote false stereotypes about the LGBT community.
They say they are protecting family and religious values but they seem to have forgotten the Ten Commandment, “Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbor”
