The Immoral and Misleading Politics Hidden Beneath the Surface of House Bill 2

The NC NAACP and Forward Together Moral Movement will continue exposing what extremist legislators have politically promoted as the "gay and transsexual restroom bill" - also known as House Bill 2.

The legislation has very little to do with restrooms and much to do with our need to prevent this immoral attempt to legislate a wide array of unconstitutional discrimination and hatred which we find when we read the fine print beneath these homophobic scare tactics. 

The NC NAACP and the Forward Together Moral Movement stands in solidarity with civil rights leaders, labor leaders and hundreds of thousands of North Carolinians who are organizing and taking action in various areas of the state against House Bill 2.  We refer to it more appropriately as "Hate Bill 2." 

It is sad that certain so called Christian leaders are supporting this bill and participating in this political ploy.  Jesus made his primary focus caring for the poor, the sick and least of these.  Where are these leaders when health care, living wages, and voting rights are being denied and public education is being undercut? They are strangely silent.
