Statement from Bishop E.W. Jackson regarding North Carolina and gender identity:
"It is unfortunate that so many institutions assume that legitimate public safety concerns of fellow citizens are a cover for anti-gay bigotry. They should be ashamed of themselves for disregarding the need to protect children as well as vulnerable adults. The citizens of North Carolina have been bullied and victimized by large corporations doing the bidding of the far left and radical activists of the LGBT community. Gender identity claims are not an unfettered right to impose the implications of gender non-specificity upon an entire population of people who are neither hurting nor discriminating against anyone."
