A Straus Divided on Texas Privacy

A Straus Divided on Texas Privacy

BarbWire.com  |  

The clock is ticking for the safety of women and children in the Lone Star State. My friend, Lt. Governor Dan Patrick of Texas, has been working to protect the privacy and safety of women and children in showers, locker rooms, and bathrooms. Earlier this year he helped introduce the Texas Privacy Act (SB 6), requiring government buildings and schools to respect the privacy and safety of women and children while allowing businesses to set their own policies. I was asked to testify on the bill, and point out how many women and children have already been harmed by the Left’s radical redefinition of the sexes.

The Texas Privacy Act easily passed the Senate on a bi-partisan vote, but it’s been stalled by the Republican Texas House Speaker for two months. By stalling, Speaker Joe Straus appears more beholden to the far Left than to his duty to protect the women and children of his state.

This week, the bill suddenly began to gain momentum when Governor Greg Abbott asked the legislature to pass a privacy bill, and Lt. Governor Patrick threatened to force a special session if it doesn’t pass.

State issues like this in Texas have national implications. The Left would surely use the defeat of privacy in a state like Texas as a rallying cry to move on to the next state (maybe yours…). We can’t allow the safety of women and children to become a feather in the cap of the radical Left.

On Wednesday, Speaker Straus, under pressure to act, said he doesn’t think the privacy and safety of women and children is a priority to Texans. He needs to hear from his constituents that it’s a priority to them. If you have family and friends in Texas, please forward this link, and ask them to use it to contact the Speaker and urge him to join Lt. Governor Patrick and Governor Abbott in support of the Texas Privacy Act.

Homosexual Agenda and the US Military is a field manual for US service members and military chaplains. This Gospel-Centered, polemical book exposes the homosexual agenda that adversely affects Religious Liberty for Christians. There are several homosexual activists that will demand equality and tolerance. However, homosexual activists are not so equal or tolerant towards anyone that disagrees with their position on same sex marriage or transgenderism. They will claim to love all, but they really do not mean all—they mean agenda. This is because the homosexual agenda has a definition for inclusivity—their way or the highway.
