You can read about the case here and here. The amendments proposed by Republican gubernatorial candidate Scott Wagner to the Pennsylvania Human Relations Act (see other posts on this website for further information) would empower the state government of Pennsylvania to also attempt to coerce business owners to celebrate conduct which they find morally abhorrent.
As explained in this report, a man in a dress, going by the name Kate Lynn Blatt, sued his former employer, the Cabela’s store in Hamburg, PA, under the Americans with Disabilities Act, for (among other things) denying him access to the woman’s bathroom, although the language of the act specifically disallows claims pursuant to gender identity disorders. Nevertheless, the judge allowed the man in a dress to go forward with his claim by construing the exclusion, despite the express language of the statute excluding all claims related to ” gender identity disorders not resulting from physical impairments”, to not exclude “gender dysphoria, which goes beyond merely identifying with a different gender and is characterized by clinically significant stress and other impairments that may be disabling.” Moreover, the judge’s opinion gives as examples of such “significant stress and other impairments” as “interacting with others, reproducing, and social and occupational functioning.”. This appears to be a clear example of the exception swallowing the rule and judicial activism subverting the intent of the legislature.
By comparison, the amendments to the Pennsylvania Human Relations Act advocated by gubernatorial candidate Scott Wagner (discussed elsewhere on this website), would confer a right upon so-called “transgenders” to wear the clothing of the opposite sex in their workplaces and to use the bathrooms of the opposite sex.
This incident happened in 2009. Scott Wagner’s sponsored alteration of the Pennsylvania Human Relations Act, which seeks to normalize transvestism (see other posts at this website), if enacted into law, would likely result in many similar incidents.
Please read this news release from the American Family Association of Pennsylvania which explains how homosexual activists have harassed a bridal shop in Bloomsburg, Pennsylvania to the extent that the owner of the shop has decided to stop doing all business with bride and groom customers. The business website indicates that the business is now only renting prom tuxedos for the Spring of 2018. The source of this harassment is private individuals. However, if the alterations to the Pennsylvania Human Relations act proposed by Gubernatorial candidate Scott Wagner (explained elsewhere on this website) were enacted, such would empower the government of Pennsylvania to similarly harass business owners who wish to avoid participating in the celebration of homosexual unions.
A just law is a man-made code that squares with the moral law or the law of God. An unjust law is a code that is out of harmony with the moral law. To put it in the terms of St. Thomas Aquinas: An unjust law is a human law that is not rooted in eternal law and natural law.

The district policy allows students to use the bathrooms and locker rooms of the opposite sex. For details click here.
Hat tip to Family Policy Alliance:
But he was pierced for our transgressions; he was crushed for our iniquities; upon him was the chastisement that brought us peace, and with his wounds we are healed.

A married couple with 5 children who operate a farm were kicked out of the East Lansing Farmer’s Market because in response to a question on their Facebook page they revealed that they believe in a biblical definition of marriage. Both the husband and wife are U.S. military veterans.
