The U.S. Department of Justice is threatening North Carolina.

Because North Carolina stood on the side of women and children, closing the ladies restroom door to men, predators, and registered sex offenders, the Department of Justice is threatening to pull hundreds of millions of dollars in federal education funding based on claims of discrimination.

In a broad overreach of federal authority, the Obama Justice Department has given the Governor until close of business today to change the law or face the consequences in court. This is the moment to pray for and stand with North Carolina Governor Pat McCrory. Encourage him to stand firm for the safety of women and children at: 919-814-2000. That’s 919-814-2000.
