Lawmakers just introduced a measure demanding President Obama be impeached for “recommendations” sent out to public schools “asking” that they cater to transgender students and allow them to use the restroom of the gender they identify as.
Oklahoma’s Republican-dominated legislature has filed a measure calling for President Barack Obama’s impeachment over his administration’s recommendations on accommodating transgender students, saying he overstepped his constitutional authority.
Lawmakers in the socially conservative state are also expected to take up a measure as early as Friday that would allow students to claim a religious right to have separate but equal bathrooms and changing facilities to segregate them from transgender students.
The bill introduced on Thursday night could force schools into costly construction, which would be difficult for them to complete after lawmakers significantly cut education funding to plug a $1.3 billion state budget shortfall.
The impeachment resolution also introduced on Thursday night calls on the Oklahoma members of the U.S. House of Representatives to file articles of impeachment against Obama, the U.S. attorney general, the U.S. secretary of education and others over the letter.
State Representative John Bennett, a Republican, said in a statement the White House directive was “biblically wrong,” and a violation of state sovereignty.
The Oklahoma bill would allow for segregation at school restrooms, athletic changing facilities and showers if a request is made to accommodate religious beliefs.
Imagine if more states in the country stood up like this and defended their God-given freedoms? Abortion would be abolished and punished as a capital crime and marriage would be between one man and one woman.
The moral fiber of our nation would be strong and our economic prosperity all but guaranteed.
Let’s hope what’s happening spreads around and more states grow bold to stand on the Tenth Amendment.
