Present Day Persecution

The following is from American Family Association (AFA) and is an example of present day persecution. We still do not suffer to the degree of Christians in the 1st Century, but we may not be as far away as we once were.
Macy’s fires Christian for protecting women’s dressing rooms from cross-dresser She endured expletives from transgender, then got fired for standing firm in her faith.

Macy’s has fired a Christian woman for refusing to violate her religious beliefs. Her offense? She prevented a man dressed as a woman from entering the women’s dressing room.
According to Liberty Counsel, Natalie Johnson says she saw the young man walk out of the women’s fitting room and politely told him that he could not go back in because it was for women only. The cross-dressing young man claimed that he is a “female.” Johnson said that he was wearing make-up and girl’s clothing, but clearly he was a male. The cross-dresser was accompanied by five other individuals.
The group argued with expletives that Macy’s is LGBT-friendly, to which Johnson replied that Macy’s is also non-discriminatory toward religion, and that it would go against her religious beliefs to lie that he was a woman or compromise with homosexuality. The group then demanded to speak with a manager.
Johnson’s boss referred her to Macy’s LGBT policy which allows “transgender” people to change in any dressing room they want. The manager demanded that she comply with the LGBT policies or lose her job. Johnson refused to go against her sincerely held religious beliefs and was terminated from her job.
Macy’s has essentially opened women’s dressing rooms to every man. The LGBT agenda has become the theater of the absurd.
If you want to do something about this I will post the contact for Macy’s that appeared in the rest of the letter.
This is also another case of those who preach and demand tolerance but turn out to be the most intolerant.
I appreciate Ms. Johnson’s stance – she definitely is obeying God rather than men.
If you want to take action here is the contact information – Email Macy’s President Terry Lundgren and urge him to immediately apologize to Natalie, reinstate her position with Macy’s and put safeguards in place to protect women customers from men who would enter their dressing areas.
Personally call Macy’s headquarters at 513-579-7000 and express your outrage at this injustice to female employees and customers. Other numbers to call: Jim Sluzewski, Senior Vice President, Corporate Communications – 513-579-7764 Macy’s Media Relations – Julie Strider, 646-429-5213
