The Political Correctness Inquisition silences dissent against LBGT dogma in Literature

Please sign the petition below in support of North Carolina Governor McCrory as he and North Carolina are being assaulted for a simple, common sense decision.
Last week the airwaves were filled with the news that the North Carolina legislature passed, and Governor McCrory signed, an important bill repealing a City of Charlotte ordinance that would have allowed biologic males to use intimate facilities such as locker rooms and bathrooms reserved for women. The Charlotte ordinance would have jeopardized the privacy and protection of women and girls in the city. STAND WITH NORTH CAROLINA GOVERNOR MCCRORY AGAINST BIG-BUSINESS LBGT BULLIES

Apr 5 Tue WI primary, Cruz expected win would be a real hit to Trump momentum

Presidential
Clinton can't win for losing, agitates her Pro-Choice, Pro-Abortion masters by saying on NBC’s “Meet the Press”, that “The unborn person doesn’t have constitutional rights.” Problem is that 'person' is a legal term, and this gaff prompted Diana Arellano, manager of community engagement for Planned Parenthood Illinois Action, to say Sunday that Mrs. Clinton’s comments undermined the cause for abortion rights.

NOM - Here's the situation we face:
Victory: In North Carolina we won a great victory as the state legislature went into special session to pass legislation repealing a "bathroom bill" imposed on the people of Charlotte by their City Council. The state General Assembly repealed the ordinance by statewide statute and prevented any other municipality from passing something similar. Governor Pat McCrory immediately signed the legislation into law, protecting girls and women from being confronted by biologic males in the most intimate of facilities including restrooms and showers. The victory came only after sustained public pressure from the grassroots, including many rallies and public demonstrations.

Betrayal: In Georgia, turncoat Republican Governor Nathan Deal just vetoed an extremely modest bill to protect pastors and churches from having to participate in same-sex 'weddings' and give some minor protection to religious schools from having to hire someone who openly opposes their religious beliefs. Deal ignored dozens of examples of discrimination against people of faith that have occurred across the country and instead adopted the approach advocated by LGBT extremists that any accommodation of religious objections to gay 'marriage' amounts to "discrimination" against gays and lesbians. Deal and the extremists demand that every single person, religious organization and small business in Georgia agree to personally participate in a same-sex 'wedding' ceremony if asked, regardless of their deeply-held religious views.

Backlash: It is now clear that LGBT extremists and the left will accept absolutely no dissent from the orthodoxy they wish to impose on the country and they are prepared to utilize cultural and economic threats to get their way. In Georgia, the head of the grossly-misnamed Human Right Campaign demanded that Hollywood studios and production companies threaten to withdraw all television and movie productions from Georgia if Governor Deal signed the legislation protecting pastors and churches from participating in same-sex ceremonies. Within days a who's who of Hollywood weighed in with statements against the legislation including Walt Disney Co., MGM, Sony, Lionsgate, 21st Century Fox, Discovery, Time Warner, CBS, and NBC, among others. Corporate America had already been working against the legislation for weeks and a group of giant businesses under the name Georgia Prospers was successful in stripping the legislation of most of the most important legal protections that are needed to help small businesses and other people of faith. Nonetheless, the NCAA expressed their concerns about "discrimination" and the National Football League went so far as to suggest that the legislation would damage the ability of the state to again host a Super Bowl. Activists suggested that this legislation could cost Georgia billions of dollars in revenues as companies and events withdrew from the state.

Remember, all of this manufactured outrage was over not forcing pastors and churches to participate in same-sex "weddings" that violate their religious beliefs.

Georgia Governor Nathan Deal has become the latest example of a cowardly Republican who has thrown people of faith to the wolves by vetoing extremely modest religious liberty legislation (HB 757) that would have protected pastors, churches and religious groups from having to participate in same-sex 'weddings' or host them in their facilities. Deal's action makes it open season on Christians, churches and other people of faith who do not want to be personally forced to be a part of a same-sex ceremony that they oppose on religious grounds.

- Cruz has promised to investigate Planned Parenthood and stop once and for all the taxpayer giveaway of hundreds of millions of dollars every year to the abortion giant.
- Cruz has a plan to lower taxes for everyone, abolish the IRS, and repeal job-killing regulations that hurt workers and small businesses.
- Cruz understands the qualities necessary for Supreme Court justices that will obey the Constitution.
- Cruz has never wavered in his support of the rights of those working to create a marriage culture.
