The Texas lieutenant governor just won’t quit with his generally unpopular anti-LGBT bathroom bill urging Christian groups and church pastors to enforce the anti-LGBT laws. The proposed bill, which has been opposed by many in and outside of Texas, including businesses which say that forbidding trans people to use bathroom facilities matched with their gender identity would lead to a disaster.The lieutenant governor, Dan Patrick, who announced the measure earlier this year, announced a “one million voices” campaign to get pastors to push their congregations to support the measure. “North Carolina was the tip of the spear. We will be next to pass a bill that focuses on privacy, a person’s privacy, and public safety,” Patrick said. He also claimed, as he has previously, that there would be no economic damage from passing the bill.
