Faith on Trial broadcast resumes LIVE Tuesday
We’re back, broadcasting LIVE starting Tuesday morning at 9. On tap for our first live show is Brad Dacus of the Pacific Justice Institute on problems with the transgendered bathroom rules. Several states and localities have ordinances that allow students to use the school rest room or shower facilities of the gender they “feel” they are. This is causing some problems, as you can well imagine, and in one case high school girls are being harassed by a boy in their own bathrooms. Unfortunately for the girls, their parents’ complaint was dismissed by the local school which said the boy’s rights as a transgender trump their daughters’ privacy rights.
