While the world is focused on the coronavirus pandemic, Virginia Governor Ralph (Blackface) Northam signed a stack of bills pushing radical legislation including one that now forces all organizations that are “not open to the public” to allow “transgender” people to use the restroom of their choice.

Warning to fake “fact-checking” websites, you have a responsibility to prove beyond any doubt that in a court of law, churches who hold public services would not be forced to follow this law.
