Federal Judge Blocks Idaho’s Transgender Ban in Female Sports

Published

on

On August 17, 2020, a federal judge rule that transgender women and girls in Idaho cannot be prohibited from participating in female sports, which effectively blocks an Idaho law that banned this practice.

“This is a victory for all women and girls in Idaho. Trans people belong in sports,” declared the American Civil Liberties Union in a statement. The leftist advocacy group provided legal counsel in the case.

CNN reported that Governor Brad Little signed the “Fairness in Women’s Sports Act” into law back in March, which would prevent athletes from participating in a women’s team without first inspecting that person’s “internal and external reproductive anatomy” if her sex is in question. However, Judge David Nye issued a motion for a preliminary injunction against the act on August 17.

Transgender athletes have put up fights against legislation in states such as South Dakota, Tennessee, and Connecticut, that limits their participation in sports where biological females participate in.

Nye asserted that Idaho did not provide enough justifications for the law to exist.

“The State has not identified a legitimate interest served by the Act that the preexisting rules in Idaho did not already address, other than an invalid interest of excluding transgender women and girls from women’s sports entirely, regardless of their physiological characteristics,” Nye wrote in his ruling. The biological male and cross-country athlete Lindsay Hecox filed a lawsuit against the state’s law. Hecox isa student at Boise State University.

A second plaintiff involved in the case — a 17-year-old female athlete — was concerned about invasively having to “prove” her sex because of her athletic physique and “masculine” personal traits.

Judge Nye was in agreement with her concerns and “being subject to a sex dispute is itself humiliating.” The law does not outline a similar requirement for male athletes, Nye pointed out.

The preliminary injunction does not finalize lawsuit. However, Nye stated in his 87-page order that “plaintiffs are likely to succeed in establishing the Act is unconstitutional.”

Activist judges are hell-bent on overturning the sovereign acts of states who fight for the interests of their residents.

One reason why conservatives must re-elect Donald Trump is to keep the courts falling into the Left’s hands. Leftist control of the courts would mark the end of American constitutional governance.

Southern Baptist Convention Reverses Course on Name Change After BLP Reporting

They say they’re not changing their name.

The Southern Baptist Convention has sought to dispel reporting from Big League Politics on the organization’s planned name change, arguing that the institution isn’t formally changing its name.

But a close look at the American Christian church’s plans relating to its name reveal that it’s played with the idea far more seriously than they’re making it seem.

Reports of a name change first emerged in a Washington Post article published on Tuesday. SBC President JD Greear told the Post that “hundreds of churches” affiliated with the denomination had “committed” to using the phrase “Great Commission Baptist” as an alternative to the denomination’s longtime moniker. The change would come as Greear touts his support of the Black Lives Matter, although he’s been careful in pointing out he doesn’t support any formal organization related to the movement. Greear also is renaming the church he personally pastors with the term.

The SBC’s 2021 convention will also organize under the motto of “We Are Great Commission Baptists.” Sounds a lot like a name change, even if the SBC’s leadership is steadfastly maintaining it isn’t.

The name ‘Great Commission Baptist’ is theologically sound in the Christian religion, but it’s somewhat questionable that the organization’s leader appears to be emphasizing it at a moment in which political correctness is making its entryism into many Christian churches and organizations.

It seems as if the organization’s figurehead is keen to present himself as a liberal-style suburban Evangelical to the Washington Post, but he changed his tune quite quickly when the rank and file membership of Southern Baptist churches learned that he was promoting the idea of a name change.
