Since the NC General Assembly enacted and Governor Pat McCrory signed legislation last week overturning Charlotte’s “bathroom ordinance” and prohibiting all other city councils in the state from enacting similar policies, it has been open season on McCrory, the legislature, and the state.
Several governors from across the nation have refused to allow their state employees to use official funds to travel to NC. Additionally, big technology, biotech and financial companies, including the NCAA, have threatened to boycott the state in the future, if this bill is not overturned.
Just yesterday, NC Attorney General, Roy Cooper, a Democrat who is challenging Republican Gov. Pat McCrory in the November election, unequivocally stated that he “will not defend in court the new law.” Cooper made the announcement one day after gay rights advocates sued the state seeking to overturn the law. In all candor, Roy Cooper should resign over his deliberate and defiant ignoring of the law!
Though I believe that our God will bless North Carolina because of the decision by our General Assembly and Governor, the pressure is mounting from the other side! The LGBT community is intent on negating this new bill, via any means possible. It is critical that the residents of NC stand unflinchingly with our courageous Legislature and Governor. In a day of political correctness gone mad, it is beyond refreshing to see a state legislature and governor do the right thing, refusing to succumb to the economic, political, and social pressure of the day.
