States Fight Back…

Schools “should not feel compelled to bow to such intimidation.”

Those words from Kentucky Governor Matt Bevin regarding President Obama’s threatening letter to schools demanding that they open their restroom and locker room doors to people of the opposite sex.

Bevin said, “It is difficult to imagine a more absurd federal overreach into a local issue. Under the Tenth Amendment to the United States Constitution, the federal government has no authority to interfere in local school districts’ bathroom policies.”

Texas and Arkansas are also fighting back, instructing schools not to obey Obama’s transgender bathroom decree. Texas Governor Greg Abbott said, “I want you to know that I am working with the governor of North Carolina, “and we are going to fight back.”

Pray for them and for more to join them in the battle for student safety.
