On May 13 the Obama Administration issued a set of guidelines instructing schools and colleges to let biological males who claim to be female use the girls’ restrooms, locker rooms, and similar facilities–and vice versa. Failure to do so, the guidelines said, could jeopardize federal funding for schools.
Arkansas Governor Asa Hutchinson and Attorney General Leslie Rutledge were swift in denouncing the guidelines and encouraging public schools to disregard them.
Today we delivered a letter to Governor Hutchinson’s office signed by 62 ministers and church leaders thanking the governor for his strong stand.
Pastor Iverson Jackson from Little Rock wrote the letter. The leaders who signed it represent a broad cross-section of churches and denominations from communities across Arkansas.
We join these ministers in thanking Governor Asa Hutchinson and Attorney General Leslie Rutledge for their strong leadership on this issue.
