And, Here We Go Again...
However, voters opted to repeal the law last month, after opponents led by powerful local church groups exploited trans protections to claim in election ads that the law lets sex offenders into women’s bathrooms.
That does not appear to have dissuaded former Olympian Caitlyn Jenner, however – who met with one of the pastors who fought to repeal the law for her reality series ‘I Am Cait’.
Jenner attended the Christmas pageant at Houston’s Second Baptist Church and prayed with Pastor Ed Young – who has ties with a group that aired a shocking ad depicting a little girl getting raped in a bid to stop the law.
In a speech prior to the vote, Young had claimed of the LGBT rights law: “It opens up our city to something that I think is absolutely godless. I speak out on a very serious moral issue.
“Those of us who believe men should use men’s facilities and women should use women’s facilities, we will be discriminated against.
“It is totally deceptive and it is deadly – and I trust that you will vote no, no, no… it will carry our city further down the road of being totally secular and godless.”
Despite his comments, Jenner visited the church while filming an episode of her reality show – attending the Christmas pageant and praying with the pastor.
The pastor’s son, Ed Young Jr, wrote of the pair’s exchange: “Dad always taught me to love and pray for everyone. Tonight he prayed with Caitlyn Jenner who attended the service.”
It’s not the first time Jenner has caused controversy. She recently apologized after claiming that trans people who look like “a man in a dress” make people uncomfortable.
Her comments led many less well-off trans people to point out they don’t have the hundreds of thousands of dollars she is thought to have spent transitioning.
I don't hate gay people apology, once again in 3...2...1...
I don't know what's worse, her Republican exceptionalism and right wing pandering or the gay people and the liberal press and media that keep supporting and rewarding this anti-gay loser.
What the fuck does this messed up bitch have to do, to finally make you realize she doesn't support the LGB community, shoot a faggot in the face on live TV?
Maybe her and the Pope can go on an armed to the teeth queer hunting expedition with Katherine Knotts in Philly since it's apparently legal to do so there (and in most places in this country)
