Donald Trump has come out against the NC bathroom law, saying that people should use whatever bathroom they feel is right for them. Do you agree with Trump, or with North Carolina’s law? Vote in our CBC member poll below…
Thank you, Ms. Therrell. I am sorry that your daughter had that horrible experience. Bullying is never acceptable. I just want my son and others in his community to be treated with the respect and dignity that they deserve. They are law-abiding taxpayers and human beings with beautiful hearts. These laws are discriminatory under a guise of protection. LGBT people are not mentally ill. People want to say this because it somehow makes them feel as if there is an excuse for someone being different than them. Again, I say none of us has the right to judge anyone. We will all go before God and the Book of Life someday. Being that way is as natural to them as being heterosexual is natural to us. Donald Trump is a hero for standing up for basic human rights. He is the right candidate for America at the right time. If America doesn’t get it right this time, America is done!

I agree with Trump. although most did not listen to either the question or the answer he gave on whether or not he would let Bruce Jenner use the bathroom at Trump Tower. the question was would he let Bruce use the bathroom and Trump said yes . he did not say which bathroom he could use. By the Bruce is the name his mother gave him and that is the name he should use . I don’t care if he thinks he is a sheep and goes BAA Baa he is a human male and that is that.As to the bathroom issue it would cost a fortune to put in bathrooms to accommodate these mentally ill people . We should offer them psychiatric care and forget the hormone treatments and the snip snip. As to Cruz and Kasich one should remember that Cruz proposed this to Rubio and we saw what happened to Rubio.

Desperate and devisive

I agree w/Trump

I didn’t vote for the bathroom situation, I did how ever vote for Trump for running for POTUS! I myself believe he will do a great job !

LauraG. I was disagreeing with RobertDeCosta who disagreed with DT. You and I agree with him but we have different experiences. My daughter had a lesbian friend who was terribly mean to her. But even with that I really like what Trump said too.
I hadn’t seen your post before posting mine. Otherwise I’d have more to think about. After I did, I asked you things because I do care. Thank you for your post and forgive me if you can.

Leave everything the way it is. I agree with Trump. This topic applies to only 0.003% of the public. It would cost the country billions to add on to bathroom. Money better spent on other ventures.

Cathy Therrell Shame on you! You are a disgrace! You do not have the right to judge anyone. Read the bible and ask forgiveness for your discriminatory views. I think that Donald Trump is a hero for standing up for human rights. I live a Christian life, where I have a wonderful personal relationship with Christ, which means I love and respect everyone and do not judge them just as Jesus did. I know my place! This is exactly what I was saying. You are sad and pathetic to think that somehow you have the right to cast aspersions on others. You may want to research the crime statistics across the country before you make a fool of yourself. There are not too many LGBT members committing crimes in this country in restrooms. This was the fictional basis for this law (hence the guise of protecting people).
April 24, 2016,1:58 pm
Furthermore, I think DT showed kindness to all people in his answer. He said leave it alone – a separate restroom “maybe in a sense descriminating also” – maybe some don’t want this special attention. He shouldn’t have to worry about these issues.
April 23, 2016,10:59 pm
LauraG, does your son want these restrooms? Do you agree with DT?
I know crime statistics do not lie within his community of people as you said. That would be the criminals so I don’t understand the fear factor.
April 23, 2016,9:12 pm
Omgoodness RobertDeCosta, your America is evolving to a sinful civilization and you want to advance it? You’re either LGBT or a democrat.
DT is correct, it needs to be left alone. Any further requests/demands should be ignored. This is their problem, let them figure it out – some reform/repentance could come into play.
Wouldn’t that be nice. If our values could “retreat” to the era Donald and I grew up in. When it didn’t take more than a minute to decide what the natural response is to aiding perversion. LGBTness is not natural, not in nature with animals or another country in the world. USA is considered perverse around the globe. Sad.

I am a strong, conservative, and Christian woman, who also happens to be the proud mother of a homosexual son. My son is a beautiful, compassionate, loving, kind, and gentle contributing member to America’s society. I am sick and tired of people sitting in judgment of others when the bible clearly states that we, as Christians, do not have the right to do so. All of us are sinners and fall short of the Glory of God! I think that America has many pressing concerns for our children’s future (jobs, the economy, and terrorism), and yet the legislators sit atop their high horses passing discriminatory legislation under a guise of protecting people. These laws are fiction because the crime statistics do not back them up. The media and states don’t want citizens to know that these laws go much further than just a bathroom “thing”. They keep the LGBT community from being hired and they can be fired as well as denied medical services and other important services due to their sexual orientation. How dare any of you try to take my son’s right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness! Knock it off, you are the reason many people are turning away from Christianity when clearly the bible states that we, as Christians, should try to bring people to Christ. Get real! This is America!

I am very disappointed with this with Mr Trump!!! he has grandbabies I can’t understand this decision, by him. I am voting for him but yet if this is passed watch how many children and women get hurt by this law.
April 23, 2016,8:21 am
This is so wrong. I was in the bathroom with my granddaughter and a transgender man had his spandex down adjusting his junk, he said to me oh I am so sorry but I am crushed. My g baby said he’s a man mommy, I don’t want to go to bathroom here. I looked at this man and told him you need to get the hell out of here, he said GF I’ll go to the bathroom where I want. I was shocked. Anyhow many of my transgender friends are against this law and they feel it will give them a bad rap. They feel that many pedophiles will be mocking them and this will be a reason for assaulting women and children. They need their own bathrooms.
April 23, 2016,8:18 am
I am totally against men in women’s bathrooms, it is not good, I have experienced it. They should use unisex ( family ) bathrooms. My experience was the man peaked under the stall watching as I did my business. I know how I felt I can’t even imagine how it might effect a child. If this becomes law ladies you better start carrying a weapon of sorts. I realize we have partitions in the restroom but should they peak under as l said above they need to be put in their place.
My other concern, no one is talking about, they do not only want to use the bathroom of their choice but they want to share locker rooms. Dressing …..undressing in front of the opposite sex of their birth. If the bathroom passes this will as well believe me.
April 23, 2016,8:04 am
Oh my god…we have so many problems with our country and all you idiots r worried about is a damn bathroom law!! Really America….wats next? Wat toilet paper we should wipe with!!!
April 23, 2016,2:44 am
It’s insane to think women and girls won’t be molested when men are allowed in women’s restrooms. We already have FAMILY restrooms which are available for men or women, so this is just more PC nonsense!
April 23, 2016,12:25 am
Some places have “Family” restrooms-one toilet, sink, & chng table in a small, “accessible” rm. Anybody can go in there, so why don’t the businesses reconfigure ALL their restrooms to be FAMILY ones????
April 23, 2016,12:00 am
Like I have said all along Donald Trump is not a conservative and for the people who are still making excuses for him, God help you. He and Hillary are the same. His core values and hers have always been the same. You are being played. Everyday his true self starts shining through more and more. Praying so hard that the blinded eyes will be opened.
April 22, 2016,11:25 pm
I agree 100%.I don’t know of any parent that would not accompany their little Girl or Boy going into a public bathroom, As to young teenagers,good parenting will guide them what to look out for. You could also post warning signs in all public bathrooms. Reality is unfortunately there will always be perverts out there as exemplified by even the supposedly most trusted adults such as priests ,guidance counselors ,coaches ,etc
April 22, 2016,11:20 pm
Trump needs to READ the CONSTITUTION; BILL of RIGHTS and UNDERSTAND the 10th Amendment: STATES RIGHTS.
April 22, 2016,8:55 pm
Dumb Donald has this one wrong. Ted Cruz has it right. It is completely nuts!!!
April 22, 2016,8:16 pm
Trump got that one wrong !
April 22, 2016,7:53 pm
No, I don’t agree. For those of us, who have evolved into a civilized world, we prefer to maintain our status. The purpose of evolving, is to advance, not retreat.
April 22, 2016,7:16 pm
Trump was saying there are WAY more important issues for the Federal Government to worry about, & leave this to the States.
April 22, 2016,7:13 pm
Just another reminder that Donald Trump is not conservative. He has endorsed the Clintons many times before, he defended partial-birth abortion until very recently, and he refuses to take a stand on the future of marriage in America.
Please pay attention to what Trump has said, friends, and think honestly about whether you really agree with what this man believes. On every issue other than illegal immigration, he’s fairly liberal.
There is only one true conservative in this race. His name is Ted Cruz.
April 22, 2016,7:07 pm
I don’t know what you are talking about. I heard Triumph say on Fox News that the bathroom issue is one for the individual states to decide. Why are we discussing this nonsence when there are so many important issues that need attention. You people have always been anti Triumph, twisting everything he says!
April 22, 2016,6:53 pm
My God, what are they going to come up with next. This is a stupid law. Throw the thing the trash can where it belongs. We have real problems in this country.
April 22, 2016,5:57 pm
This is a non issue I don’t know of any case where this ia a problem
April 22, 2016,5:29 pm
And we also are still voting for Trump. My female friends not ever offended by Trump, the comment about Carly’s face I still think he meant she didn’t look tough enough to make foreign governments to take notice and listen. That was our immediate thought and hasn’t changed. Too many out there are being sooooo politically correct they are making bad every little thing someone, anyone says.
April 22, 2016,5:22 pm
The sensible comment gone, are comments being filtered? So many places have family bathroom so the ones that want to use a bathroom different from their birth sex just go use the family bathroom, no problem and you are by yourself. I have a problem with a grown man in restrooms with females young or teens/younger children – too creepy and dangerous. That’s why an age limit for little ones to go in bathroom of parent of opposite sex. And, George, I am not a low info conservative, opposite is well informed. What about low info democrats, James, voting for Clinton when she has done things that are not right or legal when it came to our country’s safety? Maybe you both need to get more informed and then think.
April 22, 2016,5:19 pm
I will stel vote for trump
April 22, 2016,5:16 pm
NY values strike again! The NY liberal is true to form while low info “conservatives” think he’s a Republican and different in some way from HilLIARy. What a choice!
April 22, 2016,5:07 pm
To me, this is just another action in a line of many and also comments by the Blow Hard, that continue to demonstrate that he is just about the farthest thing from a Conservative that there possibly can be. He is not a Republican, and he will continue the Obama takedown/ shakedown of the USA.

Director Martin Scorsese recently told Agence France-Presse that he was “constantly discouraged” from making his newest film, Silence. He added that “three or four great actors” rejected casting offers because they could not “put themselves” in the position of Jesuit missionaries in 17th century Japan. The self-professed “lapsed Catholic” should consider those obstacles a blessing in disguise, given […]
“Private Manning is a traitor and should not have been turned into a martyr. Private Manning’s actions compromised our national security, endangered American personnel downrange by leaking 750,000 documents to WikiLeaks.” — Mike Pence
Pres. Obama has, as part of his final pardons, commuted the sentence of convicted traitor and data-leaker Chelsea Manning from 35 years to 5 more months in prison. Was this mercy a good move, or does it legitimize treason and weaken our national security? Vote now in our CBC reader poll!
“I described Obama as an incredible shrinking man, it’s like watching air come out of a balloon. Between now and Easter, his legacy will shrink until it’s about the size of a golf ball.” — Newt Gingrich
