Alliance Defending Freedom, no stranger to fighting the faith-hating Left, is representing the North Dakota-based Christian Employers Alliance which has gone to court to stop two federal agencies from using federal laws meant to protect biological women to include non-discrimination rights for transgenders, too.
The lawsuit, Christian Employers Alliance v. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, was filed in the United States District Court in North Dakota.
"The government should not be reimagining or reinterpreting federal laws,” says ADF attorney Matt Bowman, “in order to impose a radical gender identity agenda, especially on Christian health care professionals and businesses.”
Christian Employee Alliance, which includes businesses and non-profit groups among its members, also includes health care facilities. Those doctors and nurses are now expecting the federal government to accuse them of discrimination, and punish them, if they refuse to personally participate in gender-transition surgeries and in counseling sessions related to those life-changing medical procedures.
The lawsuit is also targeting the powerful Health and Human Services agency which, according to ADF attorneys, is unlawfully demanding that faith-based healthcare providers publicly support gender-changing medical procedures or otherwise remain silent. For failing to follow these new rules, doctors and nurses face lawsuits, fines, and even criminal penalties from the transgender-affirming federal government.
ADF attorneys have also filed a motion with the court to stop enforcement of the federal mandates.
