Christian homeless shelter make bid to be able to ban trans women
Isn’t always the way? Those who spend their time virtue signalling are usually morally corrupt on the down low. This is the story of an Alaskan homeless shelter which has filed a case to be given the ability to deny shelter to trans people.

The Downtown Soup Kitchen Hope in Anchorage is cowering behind religion to try and deny trans women a roof over their heads when down on their luck. The Christian-run facility decided that housing a trans woman would make their Women’s Shelter unsafe. This was the case when Jessie Doe was turned away back in 2015.

Doe was not going to take it lying down and decided to file a lawsuit against the shelter, feeling that she had been discriminated against. The shelter first claimed that she was turned away because she “smelled strongly of alcohol” and they do not “accept individuals who are inebriated”. When returning the next day she was told that she still wouldn’t be allowed in because she “had not stayed the previous evening” and they weren’t accepting new guests. 

Following the incident it seems as though this might not be why Doe was allowed to stay at the shelter. The Alliance Defending Freedom (ADF), who are notoriously anti-LGBT+, are representing the shelter in a lawsuit which is set to go up against the Anchorage Equal Rights Commission and its executive director. They feel like they should be allowed to deny people shelter if they’re different to them… interesting.

The lawsuit states that it would be “dangerous and against common sense” to allow trans women into the shelter, and that “to admit biological men into its shelter and allow them to sleep side by side and disrobe next to women” would violate their religious beliefs.

The lawsuit was filed back in mid-August, and according to KTYY Anchorage will respond to the lawsuit later this month. 

We’re just going to leave this right here:

John 6:37 All that the Father gives Me will come to Me, and the one who comes to Me I will certainly not cast out.
