Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick has demonstrated the courage of his Christian convictions, proving his mettle by unswervingly standing for the protection of the privacy and protection of women and girls from perverted men and boys, who fantasize that they are women, so that they can enter women’s and girls’ public and school bathrooms, showers and locker rooms.
Senate Bill 6 (SB 6), the Women’s Privacy Act, “No Men in Women’s Bathrooms!”, was passed overwhelmingly by the Texas Senate, under the leadership of Lt. Gov. Patrick, on March 14 by a 21-10 margin and sent to the House for its approval. Speaker Straus, a RINO of the worst order, has blocked this bill, despite his promise to the contrary, and has never even sent it to a committee for a hearing, which is required before it could be voted upon by the Texas House. Straus has denied the people’s duly elected representatives a chance to debate and vote on SB 6 and in doing so he has slapped Lt. Gov. Patrick and the Republicans in the State Senate in the face. SB 6 was Lt. Gov. Patrick’s #1 legislative priority.
Lt. Gov. Patrick told Christian leaders across the state yesterday that “I am not giving one inch of territory on this issue. I assure you that we will have a Special Session.”
Read SB 6 at http://www.legis.state.tx.us/tlodocs/85R/billtext/html/SB00006I.htm, and see how strong, clear and direct it is in addressing the problem of perverted men and boys, who have sexual fantasies that they are women, from entering women’s and girls’ public and school bathrooms, showers and locker rooms.
Governor Abbott has publicly supported the privacy protection position on numerous occasions, most recently in a news conference with Lt. Gov. Patrick this past Wednesday, May 24th. During the news conference, Abbott stated that he supported “privacy protection for children in the schools and for women’s privacy in bathrooms.” Abbott indicated that he would add the bathroom privacy issue to the Special Session call.
Yes, there will be a Special Session of the Texas Legislature, probably in July. Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick holds the cards in his hands to force a Special Session. Patrick told statewide pastors in a conference call yesterday that the Sunset Safety Net Bill cannot be passed this session because the due date for its adoption has expired. The Sunset Safety Net Bill is required to keep certain state agencies from shutting down. State agencies have periodic sunset reviews which reauthorize their existence. The Sunset Safety Net Bill allows the various state agencies to continue operating even if the legislature has not yet reauthorized them. This means that Gov. Abbott will have to call a Special Session of the Legislature to pass the Sunset Safety Net Bill.
How has Dan Patrick been able to so courageously stand against the Republican Establishment, the RINOs, Speaker Straus and his puppeteer, Rep. Byron Cook, the NCAA, NFL, NBA, the mainstream media (MSM), the lobbyists, the apostate pastors and quisling legislators in his support of a Biblical world view that the world system hates and opposes?
Dan Patrick fears God and not man. “In the fear of the LORD there is strong confidence.” (Proverbs 17:6)
Dan Patrick is a lionhearted man of God. He has demonstrated, time and time again, the courage of his Christian convictions over the past 16 years that I have known and worked with him. Patrick produced his own TV spots to oppose the Houston City Council bathroom ordinance in 2015. He played a key role in the Campaign for Houston in 2015 which defeated the Houston City Council’s bathroom ordinance by an overwhelming margin of 61%-39%.
The righteous man is compared to a lion. “The righteous are as bold as a lion.” (Proverbs 28:1) A lion possesses an imposing appearance, displaying confidence and courage. He proudly prances, fearlessly. His roar is ferocious. The lion will attack and defeat any other beast in the jungle. He is called the king of the beasts for good reason. He has no fear of man or any other animals because of his strength, speed and agility.
A righteous man fears God and gains great confidence in doing so. “In the fear of the LORD there is strong confidence.” (Proverbs 14:26) He possesses a strong moral character which gives him the courage of a lion. He is strong in the LORD and in the strength of His might (Ephesians 6:10) He bears the sword of the Spirit which is the truth of God’s word. God’s word is his only offensive weapon as he confronts the worldly wisdom of wicked men.
Dan Patrick is the epitome of a lionhearted man. We owe him a debt of gratitude for his leadership in the Texas Legislature, indefatigably working to pass SB 6, the Women’s Privacy Act, “No Men in Women’s Bathrooms!”
You can support Lt. Gov. Patrick in his efforts to pass SB 6 by contacting Gov. Abbott at (512) 463-2000 and thanking him for his support of SB 6 and thanking him for adding SB 6 to the Texas Legislature Special Session call.
Also, contact your state representative, http://www.house.state.tx.us/members/find-your-representative/, and tell him that you want him to vote to pass SB 6 in the Texas House.
Also, contact Speaker Joe Straus at (512) 463-0686 and tell him to let the Texas House vote on SB 6.
All that is necessary for evil to triumph is for you to do nothing.
“Through God we shall do valiantly, and it is He who will tread down our adversaries.” (Psalm 108:13)
