Obama has become a bathroom bully

To the editor:

It has been reported recently that Obama has instructed all the public schools in the nation to allow students who identify with the opposite gender of which they were born, to be allowed to use any restroom they desire. He has threatened to not provide federal money to any school that does not implement this policy. In other words, he is blackmailing the public school system in our country. It is very interesting that Obama was weak when it came to a red line being drawn in Syria, and the fiasco known as the Iranian nuclear deal, but now is big and bad concerning bathrooms.

Perhaps Obama should set an example. He should invite Bruce (now Caitlyn) Jenner, who incidentally is still male from the waist down, up to the White House to share a restroom with Michelle and his two daughters. They could film an instructive documentary directed at the 99 percent of the nation that simply believes that God created us to be the gender of his choosing. We don’t get the right to make that decision. That’s God’s call and he doesn’t make mistakes!

This needs to stop here and now or it will include locker rooms and showers in public schools and colleges and then progress to businesses and stores and eventually get into churches. There needs to be a collective and “in your face” no told to Obama and anyone else who agrees with his policies. It is time for “we the people” to say no to all bullies who are obsessed with the belief they can force feed their desires down our throats. “We the people” includes principals, administrators of schools, school boards, teachers, student councils, individual students and pastors and church members. It should include anyone with just plain common sense.

To those who consider themselves to be transgender, there is no sin in having psychological and/or mental problems in regard to being confused as to your gender. This, however, does not justify you shaking your fist in God’s face and saying, “God, you made a mistake in how you created me, and I know better than you!” Furthermore, you do not have the right to force your confused ideas on the rest of society. You should get psychological and mental counseling concerning your belief system.

Most of all you should get heart to heart with Jesus Christ (the King of Hearts). If you give him half a chance, he will heal your heart and clear your confused mind. In regard to Obama, he needs to be figuratively delivered a fat lip and a bloody nose. In the final analysis, that is all a bully understands. “We the people” must do this ourselves by refusing (without any reservations) to accept his lies concerning gender identification. We cannot depend on our elected representatives to speak out in no uncertain terms concerning this gender issue. They are too afraid of offending the purveyors of this belief system and being labeled a racist or bigot or unsympathetic religious fanatic.

In closing, the Bible in Genesis, Chapter Two, tells us how God created man and woman. Obama should read it! He should also read Romans 1:18-22. The Bible says “For the wrath of God is revealed from Heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who suppress the truth in unrighteousness, because that which is known about God is evident within them; for God made it evident to them. For since the creation of the world, His invisible attitudes, His eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly seen, being understood through what has been made, so that they are without excuse. For even though they knew God, they did not honor Him as God, or give thanks; but they became futile in their speculations, and their foolish heart was darkened. Professing to be wise, they became fools.”
