A governmental agency in Massachusetts said that churches “open to the public” must allow crossdressers to use restrooms of the opposite sex.  You heard that correctly. Crossdressing men in Massachusetts can lawfully enter women restrooms in any church….This isn't isolated either. In Iowa, the Civil Rights Commission ordered a church to censor their teaching on human sexuality because they consider churches public accommodations which are governed under the state's so-called Fairness Law. These measures will certainly be challenged. Its ironic that churches are caught in the crosshairs of such policy. Churches have been considered shelters for the hurting and caretakers of moral truth. But now the government appears to perpetuate brokenness and has supplanted the role of the church buy assuming the mantle of moral truth.
