Gay Group ‘More Powerful than the NRA,’ Warns North Carolina Governor

The embattled governor of North Carolina says the anti-Christian Human Rights Campaign is more powerful than the National Rifle Association, which is arguably the most powerful issue group in the United States.

Republican Governor Pat McCrory tells NBC that the powerful gay group has “…millions of dollars, which makes me want overturn [Citizens] United, because I don’t know who their donors are, either. But they are putting on a lot of pressure, instead of having a good dialogue.”

McCrory said, “I don’t think the government should be telling the private sector what their restroom and shower law should be, to allow a man into a woman’s restroom or shower facility at a YMCA, for example.”

McCrory is under continued assault from a highly organized and very rich coterie of homosexual organizations and their friends in business and the entertainment world for his defense of women and girls who do not want biological men urinating and showering with them.

PayPal canceled an expansion into Charlotte. Bruce Springsteen cancelled a concert, as did Ringo Starr. The NBA is threatening to pull the All-Star Game. And dozens of other major corporations have complained about the law.

Transsexual advocates cast the issue as one of discrimination, that biological men have a right to urinate and shower with biological women and girls. The Detroit Free Press this week editorialized that it is a violation of their Constitutional rights not to be allowed in girls’ bathrooms and showers.

McCrory is one of a few governors fighting back. He signed a bill that says people must use the bathroom and locker-room that corresponds to the sex stated on their birth-certificate. The law allows people to have their birth-certificates changed to correspond to their “gender identity.” The law also allows private companies to set their own bathroom and locker-room rules rather than have city or state governments impose rules on them.

Leading the fight to intimidate McCrory and state law-makers is the $50 million-a-year anti-Christian Human Rights Campaign. Fresh off their victory in forcing gay marriage on the country, some gay pressure groups actually closed their doors, others have been concerned with how to keep their coffers full, their doors open, and the LGBT issue on the boil after seemingly having won everything they wanted. Standing up for “men in dresses” has certainly kept the LGBT issue on the boil and, presumably, the cash flowing.

Among the huge corporate sponsors of the Human Rights Campaign is GOP billionaire donor Paul Singer, who helped fund an HRC that demonizes widely respected American Christians who promote natural marriage overseas. He was also the funder of the campaign in New York State that allowed homosexual marriage in that state. Singer is also working to change the GOP platform that now endorses natural marriage.
