Ideology upheld over biology in US court

Biden’s transgender activism is putting female college students at risk, and is a slap in the face for religious liberty. A federal judge has ruled that a Christian college must allow males to identify as females if they want to. They must be given access to female dorms and restrooms regardless of safety concerns or religious beliefs.

The College of the Ozarks last month sued the Biden administration, arguing that an executive order on “Preventing and Combating Discrimination on the Basis of Gender Identity or Sexual Orientation” would force the school to violate its own values by permitting men to use facilities for women.

“The Biden Administration’s policy forces College of the Ozarks to decide between defending its religious liberty from government overreach or violating our core beliefs,” school President Jerry Davis said in a media release obtained by Branson Tri-Lakes News.

“The government’s threats include harmful fines that could easily amount to six figures. Fair Housing Act penalties can even land people in jail. College of the Ozarks will not stand on the sidelines while our right to religious freedom is attacked,” Davis added.

The school wanted to stop the enforcement of Biden’s policy – one of his first acts as President – but lost when Judge Roseann Ketchmark ruled in favour of the extremist ideology over biology.

The school’s lawsuit was filed in the Western District of Missouri, and argued the HUD directive “requires private religious colleges to place biological males into female dormitories and to assign them as females’ roommates,” the Springfield News-Leader reported.

The school now faces fines and penalties if they refuse to enforce the policy.

Binary spokeswoman, Kirralie Smith, said the ruling was outrageous.

“Biden’s policy rejects scientific facts and denies biological reality,” she said.

“No person on earth has ever changed sex and yet US judges now rule that fiction must be accepted as fact.

“This policy takes another step toward erasing women and putting them in harm’s way.”
