A Letter from Fr. John
I Won't Back Down05-22-2016Fr. John Bonavitacola
Well I know what's right, I got just one life
In a world that keeps on pushin' me around
But I'll stand my ground and I won't back down

The final battle is upon us and I really never envisioned it would be over the issue of gender identity and bathrooms. The US Justice Department has told North Carolina that its "Bathroom Law" constitutes the highest form of discrimination and is a violation of the civil rights of those with Gender Identity Disorder. The Attorney General stated that North Carolina's law violates the 1964 Civil Rights Act, which prohibits discrimination based on race, sex or religion. So hanging a Men or Women sign on a restroom door is now the same as hanging a sign that says "White Only" or "Black Only". The Governor of North Carolina showed some testicular fortitude and filed a lawsuit against the Justice Department. The crux of the argument is whether or not the Congress in 1964 intended to include the transgendered within the definition of sex. Obviously this will be an issue that heads to the Federal Courts. The answer the courts give will be the difference between living in a democracy or an "idiot-acracy".READ MORE
