National Organization for Marriage chimes in on Indiana today with “Petition Pence.” They seem to be most perturbed by transgender protections calling it a “bathroom bill.” Does any of this have anything to do with marriage?

 Unbelievably, Republican Governor Mike Pence of Indiana is considering endorsing a Bathroom Bill in Indiana that would ignore the reality of being male and female and allow men to use intimate facilities reserved for women and girls (bathrooms, showers, locker rooms, etc.) He’s considering kowtowing to the radical left despite the overwhelming voter rejection of a similar proposal in Houston just a few weeks ago.

Brian Brown, president of whatever remains of NOM, is an ultra-orthodox Catholic. As such he does not believe that transgender people exist. Brown lives in a simplistic binary world. People are either male or female and they are all heterosexual.  Brown continues with the usual parade of horribles that never happen where these nondiscrimination laws are enacted. I doubt that Pence will be swayed by a petition signed  by people who are not residents of Indiana.
