Judge Roseann Ketchmark, an Obama appointee, ruled that biological men and women must be allowed to share the same dormitories and showers at a Christian college.
The College of the Ozarks was challenging Joe Biden’s executive order that prevented schools from keeping students from going into any restroom they choose. In other words, if the football team decides that they’re all transsexual today and want to shower with the cheerleaders, the Christian College would face six-figure fines for stopping them. Don’t you just love the “party of science”?
Happily, the school intends to appeal. In a College of the Ozarks press release, the college says:
“While we are disappointed in today’s ruling, we expect to appeal so that schools are not forced to open women’s dorm rooms to males and violate their religious beliefs,” said College President Jerry C. Davis. “For more than 100 years, College of the Ozarks has provided a distinctly Christian education to students with financial need. We will not abandon our mission. The fight to protect our religious freedom has just begun.”
Attorneys from Alliance Defending Freedom are representing the College.
“The government cannot and should not force schools to open girls’ dorms to males based on its politically motivated and inappropriate redefinition of ‘sex,’” said ADF Senior Counsel Julie Marie Blake. “Women shouldn’t be forced to share private spaces—including showers and dorm rooms—with males, and religious schools shouldn’t be punished simply because of their beliefs about marriage and biological sex. Government overreach by the Biden administration continues to victimize women, girls, and people of faith by gutting their legal protections, and it must be stopped.”
College of the Ozarks holds to the Christian belief that biological sex is not changeable, and it operates its dorms accordingly. The College’s sincerely held religious beliefs influence their policies, including dormitory policies, which prohibit male students from living in female residence halls, and vice versa.
Joe Biden’s executive order is anti-science because it’s based on the false assumption that you can change gender. It’s anti-women because it forces women into a situation where they’re going to have to change and shower in front of men. Even worse, since there’s no way to determine the difference between someone who is suffering from gender dysphoria and someone simply claiming to be transgender, it created an obvious loophole for perverted individuals who aren’t transgender to identify as such to use whichever dorms and showers they want.
