's is all a-twitter with a bill sitting on
Colorado 's desk that would extend anti-discrimination
provisions to transgender people in the state. Included in the language
of the bill - which is pretty much standard for ALL such measures (now in 12
states, D.C. and nearly 100 cities and counties) - is access to
appropriate rest rooms at public facilities.
Never one to miss a good opportunity to pander more Hate, FotF is
sponsoring ads on area radio stations in an effort to play upon bigotry
and ignorance in an effort to cause the Governor to feel squeamish about
signing the law. While Ritter is a Democrat, that is no guarantee that he
won't be willing to toss us into the "round file".
Some questions for Dobson:
1.) Where would you have me go pee? We all gotta go sometime,
2.) Just where are "predators" going pee now? We all gotta go sometime,
3.) Is this gross mis-characterization of transgenders and display of
extremely intense phobia a factor of your education as a minister or
as a psychologist?
4.) Why isn't this happening elsewhere? Go ahead...call Portland,
Indianapolis, Pittsburgh, Santa Fe, Kansas City, Seattle...any of
those places I mentioned above and ask them for their Predator in
the Potty files, (Hint - they don't exist).
5) Please show me where "Christian" grace is present in this ad.
I used to wonder how it was that so many people listen and follow
the people like Dobson and Hagee and Robertson and Falwell and
Parsley, et.al. How could they be so gullible, so guileless, so
bereft of discernment or intelligence. I now understand I've had
this backwards all along. It is NOT the work of the Ministers
of Hate "spreading the word". It is in fact the "followers" to
whom these "ministers" are all too willing to pander to their
fears and prejudices in order to gain their own sense of power,
prestige and pelf. No...it's not shame on them...it's shame on "us".
Just an FYI. I am not a Predator.
Listen to 's restroom predator ad.
RADIO: 60 05.07.08 "SB200 - Predator" Draft
SFX: [screen door closing book bag dropping on table]
ANNCR: If the Colorado Legislature has its way
GIRL 1: Mom! A man in a dress came into the girl's bathroom at
ANNCR: We could all be dealing with a new type of predator
WOMAN: [ambient sound under of woman getting out of car, door
beep and close] Honey, there was a man using the women's showers
today at the fitness center I asked the management why?!...They
said it was Colorado law!
ANNCR: And instead of our kids worrying about finals and
the prom they'll have to worry about who's in the bathroom with
them at school.
GIRL 2: [SFX: ambient hall noise, lockers close] No way I'm
going in there I'd rather wait all day than go in there if he's
in there, too.
ANNCR: Most Coloradans understand our children must be protected
from predators. But if won't veto Senate
Bill 200, all public restrooms - including those in our public
schools - will be open to anyone of any sex. The Colorado
Legislature, which is under control of the Democrat Party -
has already passed SB200, but Governor Ritter still has time
to veto it. Call the Governor now and ask him to protect our
kids and veto SB200. Call . That's .
