The South Dakota state legislature recently passed a bill that “require(s) public-school students to use facilities that match their biological sex, according to the Washington Times.”
“…Under the bill, 'every restroom, locker room, and shower room located in a public elementary or secondary school that is designated for student use and is accessible by multiple students at the same time shall be designated for and used only by students of the same biological sex.'" (read here) The governor has yet to sign the bill.
ELCA South Dakota synod bishop, David Zellmer, does not like this bill and he took to social media to lobby for its defeat saying, “I have contacted South Dakota Governor Dennis Daugaard and urged him to veto HB 1008 – legislation that would prevent transgender students in public schools from using restrooms and other facilities consistent with their gender identity.” (see here)
The South Dakota Synod, ELCA posted their bishop's message and it received overwhelming approval with 200+ "likes" and over 200 "shares." (see below)
What kind of evil and craziness is this, that people actually want to place males in the showers and bathrooms of public school girls?
"My people are fools; they do not know me. They are senseless children; they have no understanding. They are skilled in doing evil; they know not how to do good." Jeremiah 4:22
Thank God for Franklin Graham, a watchman on the wall, who said, “This week the South Dakota state legislature passed a bill that requires students in public schools to use the bathroom, shower, and locker room that correspond to their biological sex. Who would’ve thought just a couple of years ago that a law would be needed to enforce something as basic as this? I think it’s a wise step of protection and applaud the state legislature for their boldness. Gay and transgender rights activists are already threatening that this could put the schools at risk of lawsuits. We’re not surprised are we?” (see here)
Prove all things; hold fast that which is good.
