Macy’s Shows Religious Freedom and Homosexual Agenda Cannot Coexist

Those of us who are paying attention, who see—and can read—the writing on the wall, plainly understand that the radical sodomite agenda and America’s constitutionally-protected freedom of religion cannot coexist. The two are mutually exclusive, and Macy’s department store has given us yet another proof of this truth, which I will explain in a few moments.

The advancement of the militant homosexual agenda has reached “warp speed” under Barack Obama (or whatever his name is). He has packed his administration with homosexuals, refused to defend the federal law of the Defense of Marriage Act, and signed away the sanity of our military with the repeal of “don’t ask, don’t tell.”

On Tuesday, Obama released a presidential White House memorandum announcing federal funds and federal departments will be pushing the homosexual agenda all around the world. As usual, the language of the memo is couched in the phrasing of “human rights.” Just as the innocent word “gay” has been hijacked by the homosexual movement, so the term “human rights” has become a code term often used for the militant homosexual agenda.

Of course, there is no doubt that in some barbaric parts of the world, homosexuals are routinely mistreated, but in those same parts of the world, so are all manner of people, including women, Christians and anyone else deemed to be “undesirable” or “abusable” by the barbarians in charge. Mankind’s evil, wretched treatment of his fellow man is an age-old condition of this sinful and lawless world in which we find ourselves, and we should oppose brutal treatment of people, no matter who they are. But, that is not what this is truly about. It is about promoting the “mainstreaming” of deviant sexual behavior.

Yes, Obama is squarely on the side of the radical homosexual movement to the point that he is dictating that federal government employees in departments with operations abroad push the homosexual agenda and send regular reports to him on how the “progress” is coming along under their watch.

The departments and organizations noted in the memo that are being co-opted to push the homosexual agenda abroad include, but are not limited to, the Departments of State, the Treasury, Defense, Justice, Agriculture, Commerce, Health and Human Services, Homeland

Security, the United States Agency for International Development (USAID), the Millennium Challenge Corporation, the Export Import Bank, the United States Trade Representative, and whatever other department or agency Obama may dictate. What do all those departments and organizations have to do with homosexuality? Good question; and whatever the answer, it remains that your tax dollars are being confiscated to push the militant homosexual agenda all around the world, whether you like it or not. Isn’t that just swell?!

Let’s not forget that the United States Senate, in control of the Democrats, voted last Thursday, as part of the National Defense Authorization Act, to legalize sodomy and sex with animals—bestiality—in the military. Oh, you didn’t hear about that on the local news? Yep. In a 93 to 7 vote, the Senate repealed Article 125 of the Uniform Code of Military Justice which, as reported by CNS News states,

"(a) Any person subject to this chapter who engages in unnatural carnal copulation with another person of the same or opposite sex or with an animal is guilty of sodomy. Penetration, however slight, is sufficient to complete the offense. (b) Any person found guilty of sodomy shall be punished as a court-martial may direct.”

Although the Senate is Democrat in majority (51-Democrat, 47-Republican, and 2-Independent), 44 Republicans voted “yes” on this bill. Our senators here in Mississippi, Thad Cochran and Roger Wicker, both Republican, voted yes. In fact, here are the seven Senators who opposed this bill: Democrats: Tom Harkin of Iowa, Jeff Merkley and Ron Wyden of Oregon; Republicans: Rand Paul of Kentucky, Tom Coburn of Oklahoma and Mike Lee of Utah. Independent socialist Bernie Sanders of Vermont also opposed the bill. So, if your senators are not on that list of seven, then they supported this bill, which—even though it is a very, very long bill—includes a provision legalizing sodomy and sex with animals in the military. Let’s remember that when these people come up for reelection.

Getting back on point here, in America, the fact is that those of us who rightly oppose the insane march of militant homosexuality into the public square will not be allowed to express our opposition to it, if the radicals fully get their way. We have already seen numerous examples of homosexual activists targeting Christian businesses and other organizations in deliberate attempts to challenge the Christians to accept the deviant behavior or appearances of the radicals, whatever “style” of homosexual they may be. Christians have been sued and penalized for standing firmly in their knowledge that homosexuality is an aberrant, unhealthy and immoral behavior—one that God describes as an abomination to him.

We have also watched as the radical homosexual agenda has been pumped into the minds of our kids in the public school system and the entire “entertainment” industry. This is perhaps the most disturbing and despicable aspect of the homosexual war on truth and sanity. Get them when they’re young, and you may have a convert for life.

We have seen the full-frontal assault against marriage by radical homosexual judges and homo-sympathizing legislators.

Another current example of radical homosexuals pushing the envelope to force society to accept their behavior comes from San Antonio where an employee of Macy’s department store has been fired for refusing to allow a man to use the women’s dressing rooms. No, I’m not joking.

Liberty Council reported on Monday,

“A young woman was fired from the Macy's San Antonio Rivercenter department store in Texas for refusing to violate her religious beliefs by permitting a young man dressed as a woman [to enter] the women’s dressing room. Natalie Johnson claims she saw the young man walk out of the women’s fitting room and politely told him that he could not go back in because it was for women only. The cross-dressing young man claimed that he is a 'female.' Johnson said that he was wearing make-up and girl’s clothing, but clearly he was a male. The cross-dresser was accompanied by five other individuals. The group argued with expletives that Macy’s is LGBT-friendly, to which Johnson replied that Macy’s is also non-discriminatory toward religion, and that it would go against her religious beliefs to lie that he was a woman or compromise with homosexuality. The group then demanded to speak with a manager.”

This is how they work. This man was with a group, and they deliberately staged this assault on the ladies’ dressing rooms in order to create a scene to further inflict their deranged behavior on society-at-large. These are the militant homosexuals’ methods of operation to force their agenda on us all. They knew the management of Macy’s would bow down to their detestable, thuggish tactics for fear of retaliation. Never mind that only around 2 percent of the population subscribes to homosexual behavior. They are a violently vocal minority, and far too many business leaders fear the wrath of the militant homosexuals.

The Liberty Council press release continues,

“When Johnson was confronted by her employer, she explained that she could not allow a male to change in a female’s fitting room. Johnson’s boss referred her to Macy’s LGBT policy which allows 'transgender' people to change in any dressing room they want. However, Johnson pointed out that the same policy also protects against religious discrimination and, in this case, it protects her right to her beliefs that were being violated. The manager demanded that she comply with the LGBT policies or lose her job. Johnson refused to go against her sincerely held religious beliefs and was terminated from her job.

Macy’s policy which allows men to use the women’s dressing room is fraught with problems. This policy will cause significant problems and will alienate the majority of Macy’s customers. Macy’s has essentially opened women’s dressing rooms to every man. The LGBT agenda has become the theater of the absurd.”

The theater of the absurd is a very good way of describing it. Only in an insane world would people demand that society accept and affirm them in their delusions. A man can never be a woman, and a woman can never be a man, no matter how many surgical mutilations and hormone injections are done. Homosexuality and its various manifestations will never be anything but dead-wrong.

In the case of Natalie Johnson, the Liberty Council is encouraging us to contact Macy’s and politely let them know that this is completely unacceptable. They provided the contact information in their press release (You can reach Terry Lundgren, the CEO of Macy’s at macys_execs@macys.com or call their corporate offices at 513-398-5221 or fax them at 513-573-2049.) We can let them know what we think about their contempt for Ms. Johnson’s freedom of religion and their weasely pandering to the radical deviants.

Perhaps examples like the one Macy’s is providing may help awaken a sleeping American public (we can hope, anyway). This certainly illustrates the fact that it is impossible for a sane society to accommodate all the perverse delusions of its various members while preserving freedom of religion for the majority. Where do we draw the line in regard to how far we allow members of the sexually deviant minority to manifest their warped bedroom behavior in public? How far are we willing to go from what we know to be right and true?

In the case of people who are deluded enough to believe themselves to be members of the opposite sex, are we really willing to humor their delusions to the point of allowing them to use the public restrooms, showers and dressing rooms of the opposite sex? To play sports on teams and in competition with the opposite sex? The list of possibilities goes on and on, and the more we consider the ramifications, the more outlandish the proposition becomes.

As a society, we must return to reason, or else we will descend into insane chaos and receive the legacy of Sodom and Gomorrah. Members of the radical homosexual movement will stop at nothing to force their perverse agenda on the entire nation, and they must be stopped. Now, as much as ever, we must stand firmly against the militant homosexual activists. We have seen how vicious they can be when anyone speaks the truth about their wicked behavior and agenda, but we must not let ourselves be intimidated or silenced.

And, Macy’s Corporation needs to hear from us on this.

I am 100% against the homosexual agenda. But, honestly, the improper use of a changing room at Macy's doesn't strike me as a genuine Religious Freedom moment.

Maybe I just need coffee.

There are a veritable cornucopia of competing ideologies, cultural differences, and lifestyles that are hell bent on tearing this nation apart.

When it will finally collapse into complete chaos, is subject to much debate, but it’s a mathematical certainty.

There is a war going on and sometimes it’s not so overt as in the story described above. For example, there is a very popular ad running on TV right now -

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xn0pzzuKzNc

In this ad, the dressing room barrier is broken down, but were are prone to laugh at it and even chortle that the guy in the ad is a “lucky dog.” I have to admit, I laughed at it the first time I saw it.

Now, take out the hot babe and insert the guy dressed in women’s clothing from the story related above and it’s not so funny any more, is it?

I don't need Macy's. How about we never give them any business again and warn all our friends to do the same.

I think she was very smart to play the religion card. This gives her access to representation by several groups, including the one that got involved.

As a female, if I saw a GUY (even in makeup, heals, and a dress) in a ladies dressing room or restroom, I would freak...

and in Texas, those of us with our CHL’s freak with heat.

The simple answer is for people who are obviously male, and dressed as male to demand to use the women’s dressing room. If told they cannot do so, the obvious answer is to create a really big scene. Ruin their business until their policy changes.

“Just FYI.... Macy’s is a large donor to PP”

Which is why I won’t even step a foot into their store...
If MANY more people adopted that same principle, there would be some changes.

Or to go to the local Macy’s and, when using the dressing room, ask loudly if you can be assured there will be no perverts hanging around, unlike the store described in this story. You might even want to vocally demand that Macy’s explain why the 98 percent of the population that is sexually sane should have to tolerate the sickness of the 2 percent that isn’t. And why dementia is welcomed during this season but Christians are not.

KLBJ in Austin has this as a topic today. Of course, the sodomites here think it is OK to be queer, a cross dresser or being allowed to screw the pooch.

Macy’s has been less than pro-Christmas in the last few years...
I do not shop there at all and will not in the future...

It did not have to be a "religious freedom" moment, but in her case, it was. It could just as easily been a "freedom of conscience" moment for someone who may not even be a Christian but who adamantly rejects the mainstreaming of homosexuality, or who firmly believes men have no business whatsoever going into a private area reserved for women to undress.

In Natalie Johnson's case, it is a matter of going against her knowledge of what God thinks about homosexuality if she caves in and lets the homos have their way--knowing in her mind and spirit that it is completely wrong. But, that is the goal of the radical homosexuals--to subvert everyone else's knowledge to their perverse desires.

Sorry. She was hired to work under policies that permitted trans folk to use the dressing room of their choice. It’s not her place as an employee to say that she disagrees with the policy and unilaterally refuse to follow it.

I would certainly not take kindly to an employee working for me doing such a thing. A pink slip would definitely be in their very near future.

Tex, the actual deal is that Macy’s has pissed on the Constitution. Freedom of religion is a God-given right that our U.S. Constistution is meant to protect.

Macy’s has no business “making a law” that contradicts the Constitution. The same goes for all those big businesses out there that have catered to the radical homos.

Natalie Johnson did not check her freedom of religion at the door when she went to work for Macy’s. Macy’s is acting against the Constitution and needs to be slammed to the mat.

How exactly would her freedom to worship and follow her faith be infringed by following the policy she agreed to abide by as a term of employment?

There is no personal approval involved in abiding by facility usage policies. She can (and should!) state her opinion that the policy is wrong but simple refusal to abide by it seems like a clear reason for termination.

It seems to me that Macy’s is clearly within their rights to determine basic rules for what customers are allowed to do and how employees should treat customers on their dime and on their property.

Sorry. Still siding with the employer on this one.

Of course you’re going to side with the employer “on this one.” You are an apologist for the homosexual agenda.

Freedom of religion is inseparable from freedom of conscience. It is unconscionable to most people to allow a man to go into a woman’s restroom, locker room, shower room, changing room, or any other area where women normally expect privacy to be in a state of undress or otherwise attend to intimate bodily functions. Every decent human being has a moral duty to protect the dignity and privacy of other human beings.

Macy’s “policy” is like many other big businesses who have added “sexual orientation” to their “non-discrimination” list. Macy’s policy of “non-discrimination” does not explicitly include allowing men to use the ladies’ restroom or dressing room. This very thing is what those homosexuals at Macy’s were trying to push the envelope on, and is exactly where we will fight them.

While you are certainly entitled to think as you do, siding with Macy’s “on this one” is sheer lunacy, not to mention dead wrong.

If I'm an apologist for anything its for a business owner to be able to set the policies for his own business and expect employees that work there to follow them. I expect the same in my business and want no less for others.

Macy’s policy of “non-discrimination” does not explicitly include allowing men to use the ladies’ restroom or dressing room.

Actually, its in bold and italics in the original article: "Macy’s policy which allows men to use the women’s dressing room ..."

It is wearisome dealing with you reality-phobe, homo-apologists. We’ve already shot down all the various homocentric “arguments” on the original site where this—my—column is published. You would last longer there, because Jim Robinson does not put up with homo-trolls very long here on Free Republic.

You’re welcome to come read and partake in the discussion at the home site for my radio blogs, where you won’t get zotted nearly as quickly: http://www.dakotavoice.com/2011/12/macy%e2%80%99s-shows-religious-freedom-and-homosexual-agenda-cannot-coexist/
