Take Action: Protect Our Children and Our Schools

June 20th, 2016

Take action to protect all Ohio students. Sign the petition urging elected officials to stand up for our children and our schools.

President Obama recently threatened to withhold education funding from every public school in America if they do not open all school girls’ bathrooms, locker rooms, and showers to male students. This flies in the face of common sense and logic. Moreover, this extreme change was not debated and passed by Congress; rather it was decreed in dictator-like fashion by President Obama.

We thank Attorney General Mike DeWine for standing up for our children by opposing Obama’s bathroom mandate. But, Governor Kasich has not taken a stand against this attack on Ohio’s school children. This is outrageous. Leaders in other states are fighting for their children but not here in Ohio. Governor Kasich must hear how Ohioans feel about boys in girls’ bathrooms.

TAKE ACTION! Rep. Jim Renacci Supports Obama and the Radical Left

June 1st, 2016

John and Diane Stover from Northeast Ohio Value Voters writes:

In the past week both American Family Association and the Family Research Council have alerted that 43 Republicans voted with Obama on an amendment to an appropriations bill that would help advance Obama’s radical pro-LGBT agenda including the recent Transgender Bathroom Bill.   One of those Republicans was our own Rep. Jim Renacci (OH).

IMPORTANT Letter to Congress signed by CCV

May 25th, 2016

Family Groups Call on Congress to Curtail Obama’s Bathroom Agenda

Citizens for Community Values (CCV), working with Family Policy Alliance and Washington, D.C.-based Family Research Council, sent a letter to Congress asking them to pass legislation that curtails the Obama Administration’s “guidance” redefining “sex” in Title IX.

“As you are aware, executive agencies are not permitted to redefine a federal statute,” the letter reads. “Rather, legislative power is vested in the legislative branch. The Administration is clearly attempting to bypass the legislative process and ignore the original legislative intent, which did not intend to encompass claims of discrimination based on gender identity.”

A CALL TO ACTION – Obama’s war on children

May 20th, 2016

The recent actions by the Obama Administration in threatening the funding for schools if they do not acquiesce to an “open policy” for admission of any gender, including children struggling with gender identity disorders, to bathroom, shower and locker facilities in their school’s borders on tyranny.

No child should be forced into an intimate setting like a restroom or locker room with a person of the opposite sex.   Letting boys into girls’ restrooms, whether or not there is a gender identity disorder issue,  is an invasion of privacy and a threat to children’s safety.  The Obama Justice Department and the Department of Education are threatening this punitive action to force compliance to something that no law mandates.

Just When You Thought it Couldn’t Get Any Worst!

May 13th, 2016

The Obama administration sending a letter to every public school district in the country telling them to allow transgender students to use bathrooms and locker rooms is unbelievable even for the Obama administration. Since 1992 CCV has been warning anyone who would listen where these false claims of discrimination by homosexual activist would lead. This is outrageous, and CCV will demand that the new president rescinds all of Obama’s Executive Orders.

Obama Administration Guidelines on Bathrooms Lack Legal Authority

ALLIANCE DEFENDING FREEDOM COMMENT

May 13, 2015 – FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

CONTACT ADF MEDIA RELATIONS: (480) 444-0020 or www.adfmedia.org/home/contact


The following quote may be attributed to Alliance Defending Freedom Senior Counsel Jeremy Tedesco regarding guidelines that the Obama administration issued to public schools and universities nationwide Friday that reinforce its political goal of forcing women to share restrooms and locker rooms with men despite the lack of any support in federal law for that position:

“The administration’s new guidelines simply reinforce what has been abundantly clear already—that it has a political goal of forcing women to share restrooms and locker rooms with men across the nation and will spread falsehoods about federal law to achieve its aims. This is precisely why we have filed two federal lawsuits, one in Illinois and one in North Carolina, on behalf of parents and students who are understandably concerned about their children. Solutions exist to accommodate everyone without violating anyone’s privacy rights, but the administration won’t entertain those solutions because of its preference to unlawfully impose its political will through threats and intimidation.”
