Evangelical preacher the Rev. Franklin Graham has railed against a $60,000 award given to a fifth grade transgender teacher in Oregon who says she was harassed and "misgendered" by coworkers.
"Doesn't a person's DNA or birth certificate count for anything? Shouldn't fact override fantasy? God created people male and female," Graham said in a Facebook post on Thursday.
Breitbat News reported earlier this week that Leo Soell, who works as a fifth grade teacher at Gresham-Barlow school in Oregon, was given the money after submitting a complaint claiming that her co-workers continuously used the wrong gender pronouns when addressing her. more >>
Eleven American states have filed a lawsuit against President Barack Obama's administration and its recent directive to public schools calling for transgender students to be allowed to use the bathrooms of their choosing.
The Washington Post reported that the states of Alabama, Arizona, Georgia, Louisiana, Maine, Oklahoma, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, West Virginia and Wisconsin have joined the lawsuit, filed on Wednesday, which argues that Obama's guidance has "no basis in law."

Grayson Superintendent Kelly Wilmore told LifeSite News in an interview published Monday that the ordinance was supported by the whole community, including Democrats. more >>
