Theologian John Piper is weighing in on Target's controversial bathroom policy that allows customers to use restrooms and fitting rooms based on their gender identity rather than birth sex, saying he would avoid using a gender-open restroom even if it were marked for men.
In a podcast posted Monday on his website DesiringGod.org, the pastor elaborated on his position, saying he would avoid gender neutral restrooms, if he could.
