The right-wing legal foundation Liberty Counsel is representing a former Macy’s employee who was fired when she violated company policy and refused to allow a transgender woman to use the woman’s changing room to try on clothes. In the weeks since the incident, Liberty Counsel chairman Mat Staver has made the rounds to disparage and attack transgender Americans as well as Macy’s for respecting the rights of LGBT customers.
Staver has previously warned that Macy’s policy could lead to rape by enabling male rapists to claim they are female and then assault women in changing rooms. Today on Faith & Freedom, Staver went even further by repeating accusations made by an unnamed tipster that Macy’s is actively covering up a string of sexual assaults, including rape, at its stores. Staver did not seem to know much about the tipster or his claims, but that did not stop him from repeating them. Staver’s deputy, Matt Barber, went on to say that he wasn’t surprised by the accusations. After all, Barber said, the “homosexual activist lobby and people who are trapped in the homosexual lifestyle” are “in constant rebellion with order, with their natural order, with natural law, with biology.”
Staver: We also have another individual that contacted us, Matt, who said that he was sort of a trouble shooter, I forgot the exact title that he was working in in Macy’s, and he brought to Macy’s the issue of these men going into the women’s fitting rooms.
Barber: Probably working in corporate security or loss prevention.
Staver: Loss prevention or something of that nature. He brought to their attention articles from around the country where people had gone into Macy’s, and some other stores but specifically Macy’s, women had gone in and they had been sexually assaulted in these fitting rooms by men that have been coming into those fitting rooms, and even rapes. He brought this to the attention of Macy’s to address this policy and he said rather than address it he was terminated.
Barber: Not surprising, they are pulling the wool over their own eyes here. That’s the hallmark of the homosexual activist lobby and people who are trapped in the homosexual lifestyle, they are in constant rebellion with order, with their natural order, with natural law, with biology, obviously a man can’t be a woman and a woman can’t be a man. Groups like the Human Rights Campaign are constantly raising the bar, moving the goal posts if you will, they have their Corporate Equality Index and they use that in order to strong arm companies into signing off on every single one of their demands.
