Baptist Press kindly asked for my thoughts on Target’s CEO’s comments comparing the issues around offering transgender bathrooms to the issues during the American Civil Rights Movement. These are some of my comments:
“The important comparison is not the progressive nature of Target’s policies, for one day Target may allow employees to serve food without washing their hands in an effort to be progressive on public sanitation,” Redmond said. “… It will be to our shame and to the detriment of all members of society, including those self-identifying as transgendered, to ignore what is innately human, and its significance for members of a citizenry to live ethically toward one another.”

Thank you, Baptist Press, for offering an alternative view to the popularly accepted stance on the transgender bathroom issue, even as the President pushes acceptance of the transgender ideas with threats.
