Good letter Dr. Brown. I would say I wholeheartedly agree but I didn't vote for Trump so can't go with you there. Here's the crux of the matter and the major problem with Trump/Pence statement and Clinton's opening the door for BHO. The 1964 CRA made it illegal to discriminate on Inherent, unchangeable characteristics and NOT BEHAVIORS!! One does not CHOOSE or change their Race, Color, Sex, or National Origin. Religion is redundant and didn't need to be included because it is already protected under the 1st Amendment. Nixon's 1969 addition of "handicap and age” fall in the same category as unchangeable, innate. The change occurred when Clinton opened the door, just as he did with his DADT for the Military, with his addition of "sexual orientation". There is NO proof/evidence whatsoever that "sexual-orientation" even exists whereas physical evidence provides all the proof necessary in the other instances. However, even if sexual-orientation were to be proven to exist, that would NOT change the fact that one still CHOOSES to engage in same-sex BEHAVIOR. Moreover, it has been proven that sexual-orientation in itself can change and HAS. Now BHO & Trump have taken it one step further to include how one CHOOSES to BEHAVE in public place and workcenter by they way they dress and ACT. There is NO justification for this whatsoever except for purely caving the the PC Left. Trump/Pence say they have no room for prejudice in their heart. Well, that's just baloney. They DO. Only their prejudice is against anyone with a conscience and the God-given common-sense that comes with it. When a man or woman exhibits a BEHAVIOR such as acting or dressing in a manner that is harmful to one's business, the owners of that business have every right to fire him. It is a travesty to compare IMMORAL BEHAVIOR with one's skin color or national origin or race or sex. And to make such IMMORAL BEHAVIOR a protected class is IMMORAL BEHAVIOR itself and sinful discrimination/prejudice against the MORAL one's. Now, that said, get ready for a whole new class of lawsuits. It won't be long before transgenders start filing Unlawful Termination lawsuits because some dude in a dress hit on some guy at work and the guy complained to HR he was being sexually harassed. The transgender will say it's a false lawsuit and he's being harassed because he's transgender. Or a woman dressed as a man hits on another woman. Or a man dressed as a woman hits on a woman and claims he's a lesbian transgender. Pandora's Box has been opened-wide and the hornet's nest inside stirred well. I would add that I'm a 20yr USN-Ret Vet so I know well what it means to support your superiors, especially when they may hold a position that is not popular or even against your own. BUT, Pence would do well to remember Matt. 10 when he defends Trump. The Fed'l Trans Policy is sin. Pence should remember Romans 13 & what the Government is there for. It should be used as an arm for God!! Not to promote Sin. Fed'l Trans Policy is Sin. Just like in the Military where we obeyed all LAWFUL orders and had the duty to disobey Unlawful orders, Pence would be well-advised to remember Who he takes His primary marching orders from!
