President Joe Biden is being sued by a Christian college that says his executive order on “gender identity” violates its religious freedom by forcing it to compel its students to share their dorms and showers with members of the opposite sex.

In a federal lawsuit filed Thursday in Missouri district court, the College of the Ozarks — a private, Christian college in Point Lookout, Missouri — says a directive issued by the Department of Housing and Urban Development is unconstitutional and infringes on its religious rights.

Also named as defendants are Biden-appointed HUD Secretary Marcia Fudge and Assistant HUD Secretary Jeanine Worden.

At issue is a controversial January executive order titled “Preventing and Combating Discrimination on the Basis of Gender Identity or Sexual Orientation,” which HUD invoked a month later to mandate that all college housing facilities must be in compliance with the new gender rules.

This means that men who identify as women must be allowed to live in female dormitories and use communal showers in women’s bathrooms.

The Alliance Defending Freedom, a conservative Christian advocacy group, is representing the College of the Ozarks in its discrimination lawsuit.

In a statement, the ADF said the Biden administration’s anti-scientific recognition of transgender individuals’ self-declared gender identity “forces religious schools to violate their beliefs by opening up female dorms to biological males and vice-versa.”

Julie Marie Blake, the ADF’s senior counsel, said the government should not be allowed to concoct its own definition of gender in order to push left-wing political agendas that deny and erase the biological differences between men and women.

“The government cannot and should not force schools to open girls’ dorms to males based on its politically motivated and inappropriate redefinition of ‘sex,’” Blake said in a statement.

“Women shouldn’t be forced to share private spaces — including showers and dorm rooms — with males, and religious schools shouldn’t be punished simply because of their beliefs about marriage and biological sex.”

She said the Biden administration’s nonstop championing of transgender individuals discriminates against women and Christians by subverting science and denying immutable biological facts.

“Government overreach by the Biden administration continues to victimize women, girls, and people of faith by gutting their legal protections, and it must be stopped,” Blake said.

Jerry Davis, the president of College of the Ozarks, said his school upholds the Christian belief that gender is not changeable, and the school operates its dorms accordingly.

He said Biden’s executive order constitutes Big Government overreach and is a direct attack on Christianity.

“Religious freedom is under attack in America, and we won’t stand on the sidelines and watch,” Davis said in a statement.

“To threaten religious freedom is to threaten America itself. College of the Ozarks will not allow politicians to erode this essential American right or the ideals that shaped America’s founding.”

In a poignant blog post, Sarah Kramer of the ADF said as a mom, she’s worried about her child’s future given the escalating left-wing attacks on Christianity.

She recalled how excited she was in 2009 when her own mother drove her to college for the first time, and how she wondered who her roommate would be and whether they’d get along.

Now, Kramer said, women going off to college have to wonder if their roommates will be male.

“As a parent now myself, I would not feel comfortable leaving my child in that situation,” she wrote.

“The government is clearly overstepping its boundaries here. After all, our Constitution does protect the right of faith-based institutions to operate according to their beliefs. … The government doesn’t belong in our dorm rooms.”

Facebook’s Zuckerberg Bashed for July 4th Stunt Gone Viral

Published

on

Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg posted a video on July 4th to celebrate America. It’s not what anyone would expect, and it got mixed reviews on social media. Most comments below the video bashed the Facebook founder (see below).

The stunt Zuckerberg pulled is reportedly hard to do, so we’ll give him that, but that music he played with the video is a complete mismatch.

Some of the comments hit the mark:

-Why is Zuckerberg, a man that HATES America and HATES our constitution, is holding an American flag? Or did he mistake it for the Chinese flag?

-He waves it around, but he doesn’t understand what it is all about, or his website wouldn’t censor decent Americans speaking their mind.

-Is this supposed to deflect away from Zuck’s role in funding election fraud?

-Who is he trying to impress? Pathetic Kapo. He has a lot of nerve pretending to be a patriotic American.

What are your thoughts on Zuckerberg’s stunt?

Florida’s DeSantis signs bill banning transgender athletes from playing on female teams

Published

on

Florida GOP Gov. Ron DeSantis signed a bill Tuesday banning transgender athletes from playing on female high school and college teams.

“We believe in the state of Florida protecting the fairness and integrity of women’s athletics,” said DeSantis, flanked by teenage girl athletes at the Trinity Christian Academy. “And I can tell you this: in Florida, Girls are going to play girls sports, and boys are going to play boys sports, that’s what we’re doing.”

The signing of the bill comes on the first day of Pride Month, which celebrates the LGBT community. West Virginia, Montana, and Idaho have passed similar laws banning transgender athletes from competing in women’s sports.

The bill would certify a student’s gender via birth certificates. A controversial previous version of the bill would have enforced the law via mandatory genital inspections, according to The Orlando Sentinel.

DeSantis also called out the National Collegiate Athletic Association, saying he will “stand up” to the group. The NCAA has previously pulled events from states with transgender sports bills.
