In the United States, a superior court has ordered a school district to pay $75,000 to the attorneys of a male student who identifies as a female after it was declared that officials discriminated against him by denying the use of the girls’ restroom. After claiming he felt more like a girl than a boy, with a legal change in name, Wyatt Maines was allowed by the school authorities to be using the girls’ restrooms. But the other students were not comfortable with this, and Wyatt was later asked to be using a unisex staff bathroom instead of the main girls’ restroom.
However, Wyatt’s parents claimed that this policy constituted unfair discrimination against their child and headed for the courts. The legal case which started in 2008 was finally decided this year – in favour of the Maines. On December 4, the Penobscot County Superior Court issued a final order prohibiting the school district “from refusing access by transgender students to school restrooms that are consistent with their gender identity.” It also required the school district to pay the hefty $75,000 fine.

In a similar case at Portland, in the United States, Chris Penner, owner of the Twilight Room Annex bar in Portland, was fined $400,000 under the Oregon Equality Act for excluding transsexual men from his bar. The men, calling themselves” the T-girls” and dressed as women, had insisted on using the women’s restroom. However female customers were not comfortable with sharing the restroom with the transsexuals, compelling the shop keeper to exclude them.
These two stories clearly show that the rights of the minority homosexuals far outweigh those of the majority normals. We had reported previously that at Havard University, three genders are now officially recognized: male, female, and transgender. On the other hand, the nation of Sweden is pushing to eradicate reference to gender at all, in what is termed “gender neutrality.”
For some listing of the horrors Christian individuals and organizations are currently passing through in America, with many businesses choosing to close down rather than acquiescence with homosexuality, see our Blog at http://churcharise.blogspot.com/2014/12/gay-advocates-on-rampage-in-us-from.html It was culled from a lengthier article at WorldNetDaily.
