ERLC’s Russell Moore Supports Trump Administration’s Decision to Rescind Obama Transgender Mandate

WASHINGTON, D.C., Feb. 22, 2017—Russell Moore, president of the Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission, responded to the announcement that the Trump administration rescinded former President Barack Obama’s transgender mandate, which redefined “sex” to include gender identity rather than biological sex for Title IX purposes.

“I'm very glad to see the Trump Administration revoke these guidelines. This move is good for parents and good for families,” Moore said. “Children are not pawns of the state to be used to advance the latest fashionable ‘right side of history’ cause. Christians must continue to insist that the worldview of the sexual revolution harms men and women and advocate for the inherent dignity of all.”
