Christian Leaders Fear New Ordinance will Enable Child Predators Access to Children

Another American city, Charlotte, North Carolina is currently reviewing an ordinance that would include marital status, familial status, sexual orientation and gender identity and gender expression to a list of existing non-discrimination ordinances.

The Sexual Orientation Gender Identity (SOGI) ordinance is set to be up for a vote on March 2 at the Charlotte City Council meeting. However, several high-profile Christian activists are pushing hard against it because they feel it will enable child predators access to children in bathrooms. Rev. Franklin Graham posted this on his Facebook page, "I cannot see why City Council would even consider this. It is not only ridiculous, it’s unsafe. Common sense tells us that this would open the door, literally, to all sorts of serious concerns including giving sexual predators access to children. It violates every sense of privacy and decency for people of both sexes, adults and children."

In addition, the Christian-based North Carolina Values Coalition also believes that the pending ordinance with affect the safety of women and children in Charlotte's public restrooms because the ordinance will require public restrooms to be open to use by individuals of any sex. This means that any male who identifies himself as female can use a public woman's restroom. On the other hand, Scott Bishop, chairman of the Charlotte LGBT political action committee told WFAE 90.7, “People are afraid that this ordinance will enable predators to access restrooms and that’s never been proven, it's never happened anywhere. These ordinances, like this, have been in place, you know, 17 states. Over 200 municipalities around the country have had these ordinances for years and there’s never been one documented incidence of this kind of thing happening."
