Ever since Target announced its allowance for transgender individuals to use the bathroom that they gender identify with, the controversial topic has exploded all over the Internet. While many rave in support of the new movement, over 1 million people have vowed to boycott the store permanently. Still others have taken the stance that the way the debate has panned out is a “misuse of power and truth” from a Christian perspective.
However, we all know Duck Dynasty patriarch Phil Roberston has never been one to shy away from controversy, nor are his opinions lukewarm—as he made clear once again in a recent email he sent out to his conservative supporters.
“The Judeo-Christian values that led America to greatness are under full assault by the mob mentality of political correctness, and we’re slowly losing our soul,” wrote Robertson.
“I’ve got a radical idea,” he added.
“Men should use the men’s bathroom and women should use the women’s bathroom. Just because a man may ‘feel’ like a woman doesn’t mean he should be able to share a bathroom with my daughter, or yours. That used to be called common sense. Now it’s called bigoted.”
What’s your take on Phil’s perspective? Faithit would love to hear your feedback!
