Court Victory for Women

The efforts of the Biden administration to force virtually every school in America to embrace radical trans ideology were just dealt a setback in a federal court.

In April, the U.S. Department of Education issued controversial new regulations for Title IX. Title IX is a law that bans discrimination in schools based on sex. The law is widely credited with the advances women have made in sports and educational opportunities over the last fifty-two years.

But the new regulations will eviscerate Title IX by extending protections meant for women and girls to biological males who "identify" as girls.

The Biden rules will require schools to allow individuals born male to use girls' bathrooms and locker rooms. They also will force schools and students to use trans pronouns or risk losing federal funds.

Multiple states have filed lawsuits against the regulations scheduled to go into effect on August 1, 2024. One case, filed by Idaho, Louisiana, Mississippi, and Montana, was just decided by U.S. District Judge Terry A. Doughty (appointed by former President Donald Trump).

Judge Doughty issued an injunction stopping the trans regulations in those four states. He explained: "Title IX was enacted for the protection of the discrimination of biological females. However, the Final Rule may likely cause biological females more discrimination than they had before Title IX was enacted. . . . By allowing biological men who identify as female into locker rooms, showers, and bathrooms, biological females risk invasion of privacy, embarrassment, and sexual assault."1

We believe the judge's decision is correct, but LGBTQ+ groups and liberal media were irate. "Today's decision prioritizes anti-LGBTQ+ hate over the safety and well-being of students in the state. This is MAGA theatrics with the dangerous goal of weaving discrimination into law,"2 said Kelley Robinson, president of the Human Rights Campaign.

Interestingly, in the proposed regulations, the Biden administration did not address whether men should be allowed to compete in women's sports. Public opinion has moved sharply against that idea, and the White House feared the political fallout.

JDFI applauds the district court opinion, but it does not end the threat to women and girls. Other district courts with "progressive" judges will likely uphold the Biden trans regulations, setting up the strong possibility that the dispute will have to be settled by the Supreme Court.

Pride before the Fall?

Proverbs 16:18 tells us, "Pride goes before destruction, a haughty spirit before a fall" (NIV). Bud Light and Target learned that lesson last year. Other corporations got the message and scaled back their "Pride" displays last month.

Vote for the Supreme Court?

There are many reasons Christians must vote in record numbers this November. Our country will elect a president, one-third of the Senate, and all 435 seats in the House of Representatives. Supreme Court justices are not elected. The president makes nominations, and then they must receive a majority vote in the Senate.

The Dr. James Dobson Family Institute Decries Yesterday's Attempted Assassination of Former President Donald Trump and Calls for the American People to Pray and Unite

The attempted assassination of our 45th President, Donald J. Trump, and the murder and injuring of his supporters in Butler, PA, were appalling and tragic. Many have described this historical event as surreal, and it does not reflect the America envisioned by our Founding Fathers or the overwhelming majority of the American people.
