May 31 a 14-year-old Peruvian transgender girl was gunned down the same day that Evangelist James Dobson called on fathers to violently protect their children from transgender people. James Dobson should have a long look at this reality. This is what he is provoking his followers into doing.
The crime wave is unstoppable in La Libertad . Gunmen killed four shots, three of them in the head, a 15 years old when he drank liquor with friends in the front of a house in the district of La Esperanza in Trujillo .
The child, who was a transgender, was found in the morning after attending a social gathering at the Virgen de la Puerta sector. Witnesses said two gunmen shot her at point blank range and then fled on a motorcycle. Police are investigating the motive for the attack.
Luisa Revilla, the first counselor of Peru transgender and community representative grouping Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender ( LGBT ) told peru21 that this crime “is a clear sign of hatred toward transsexuals.”
“As a council member (of the Municipality of La Esperanza) will request the police and the Public Ministry to investigate and severely punish the murderers , ” he said.
In so far this year, there have been 40 transgender murders in the region La Libertad, most by his estimate.
In the words of Focus on the Family founder James Dobson, the battle against LGBT rights is essentially a “second civil war” — Southern Poverty Law Center
Evangelist James Dobson said yesterday transgender people using public bathrooms should be shot.
In an anti-Obama rant, the Focus on the Family founder said that transgender people using public restrooms should be shot. Writing for World Net Daily Dobson complained about President Obama’s order to “every public school in America to open all its bathroom facilities including those that are in use by a member of the opposite sex.” Dobson wrote:
“Would you remain passive after knowing that a strange-looking man, dressed like a woman, has been peering over toilet cubicles to watch your wife in a private moment? What should be done to the pervert who was using mirrors to watch women and girls in their stalls? If you are a dad, I pray you will protect your little girls from men who walk in unannounced, unzip their pants and urinate in front of them. If this had happened 100 years ago, someone might have been shot. Where is today’s manhood? God help us!”
In short, Dobson is giving Christians permission to shoot transgender people using a public bathroom.
