The Delaware House of Representatives was set to vote today,
Tuesday, on an alleged non-discrimination bill to benefit
Mike Fox, pastor of The Trek Church in Smyrna, says he has been
fighting the bill because of the "obvious danger" of transgendered
people in locker rooms and bathrooms.
"Any gender can walk in there and parade around because they
feel like the opposite sex," he tells OneNewsNow.
That especially places women and children at risk from
predators, and Fox wonders why the male-dominated state legislature
seems likely to pass the measure.
"It boggles my mind personally that they don't feel the danger
for themselves because many of them have families," Fox says. "They
feel that the agenda is more important than their children."
The Delaware Senate passed the bill 11-7. Governor Jack Markell
has said he will sign it in to law.
Fox warns about language in the bill, "which basically says that
anybody in any way, if they make them feel emotionally guilty or
bad, that they are actually covered by the law to say you are doing
a hate crime and could be liable through criminal law," he
There are no protections, for example, for Christian business
owners or organizations that object.
