MONTGOMERY: The Foundation for Moral Law, a Montgomery-based legal foundation dedicated to the defense of the Constitution and of Biblical values, announced its willingness to defend the City of Oxford in the event its restroom ordinance is challenged in court.
Shortly after the Target stores announced that they would allow transgendered persons (those who identify with a different gender from that on their birth certificates) can use whichever restroom they identify with, the Oxford City Council Tuesday unanimously passed an ordinance imposing a $500 fine and/or six months in jail on anyone who tries to use a public restroom provided for a different gender than that on the person’s birth certificate. Parents of children under 12 and caregivers for disabled persons are exempted from the ordinance.
Foundation President Kayla Moore said in her letter, “Simple common sense tells us that the policies being forced upon the public by some elements of the LGBT community, and the policy recently announced by Target, will make many people uncomfortable and will be used by some in ways that endanger women and children.”
Foundation Senior Counsel John Eidsmoe added, “The Foundation regularly champions Biblical values including traditional marriage, and if this ordinance is challenged in court, the Foundation will be most willing to assist in the City’s defense.”
