Ralph Reed Issues Statement On NBA Removing All-Star Game From North Carolina

Below is a statement from Ralph Reed, Chairman of the Faith & Freedom Coalition, on the National Basketball Association’s decision to remove the 2017 NBA All-Star Game from the city of Charlotte, North Carolina.

“The NBA’s decision to punish the state of North Carolina simply because it protects the privacy of its citizens in bathrooms, locker rooms and shower facilities is an assault on common sense and strong families. The NBA should focus on basketball, not left-wing and special interest politics. Unless and until the NBA allows men to enter WNBA locker rooms, it should leave bathroom policy to state legislatures.”

It is paramount for people of faith to know that their elected officials value life as the most sacred of rights and we encourage citizens of Missouri to thank committed champions like Missouri law professor Joshua Hawley for his uncompromising defense of those who have no voice.”
