Ohio Christian Alliance Opposes Sham Homosexual, Transgender, Cross Dressing "Rights" Bill.

APRIL 1, 2008

OCA President Chris Long issued the following statement in reaction to today’s sponsor testimony hearing for H.B 305:

“This bill seeks to provide a solution to a problem that doesn’t exist. There is no evidence of endemic discrimination against individuals seeking employment in Ohio based on their sexual orientation. The legislation would needlessly have the state of Ohio designate those living homosexual, bisexual or cross dressing lifestyles as a protected class of citizens.

It would open Pandora’s Box. Were this bill to become law, businesses may be compelled to provide restroom facilities accommodating transgender and cross-dressing individuals. Public schools may be forced to hire a man who dresses as a woman to be a 3rd grade teacher. Employers may have to provide costly medical benefits to pay for sex altering surgeries and treatments. This bill could ultimately be used to undermine and challenge our state’s constitution, which recognizes marriage as a union between one man and one woman.

This is an effort masquerading under the charade of civil rights to advance the homosexual agenda and gain state recognition for their lifestyle. It is not necessary and only begs the question of why our elected representatives are squandering precious legislative business days on an issue such as this when the state’s economy is in tatters.”
