It is clear President Obama's administration has no regard for the moral and social rights of the people of the United States and instead plans to continue pushing for special interest rights despite no Constitutional authority to do so. In an announcement Friday, the U.S. Departments of Justice and Education released "joint guidance … to help provide educators the information they need to ensure that all students, including transgender students, can attend school in an environment free from discrimination based on sex."
The announcement contained veiled threats to end federal funding to school districts across the country if they do not comply. The announcement dated May 13, 2016, relies on and quotes the Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972, Office for Civil Rights (OCR), Title IX and Sex Discrimination, of the U.S. Department of Education, and the OCR's Title IX Resource Guide - both updated in April 2015.
This single action tramples on so many rights and libertys it makes my head spin.
Federal Overreach - It is long past time for our State to take back education and end all dependence on federal dollars and influence. Given the choice between complying with this tyrannical 'guidance' or not accepting federal dollars for our school system, I would choose the latter. Ending our dependence will not be an easy task since our dependence on federal funding has increased over the years to the point where it is today. As Utahns, it may take great patience and sacrifice, but we must end our dependence on the federal government. We can start by not allowing our dependence to grow any more than it has and then look for the solutions needed to begin cutting back.
Actual state sovereignty is one of the greatest goals we can set as citizens of this great State. Acquiring the public lands would greatly help in ending our reliance on the federal government.
Gender Identity - Every human being is born with a pair of sex chromosomes. Female humans are born with two X chromosomes, male humans are born with one X and one Y chromosome. Gender identity is determined at conception. Our society today hypocritically screams equal rights for gender identity, which are nothing but new rights for special interests at the expense of the rights of all people. Get over it and go to the XX or XY bathroom depending on your real gender.
As a God loving people, we understand the concept that God would not create women who are men or men who are women. He just wouldn't do it.
