Audio: Brad Dacus, leading opponent of CA's trans rights law, prays LGBT people out of 'Satan's dominion'

by Jeremy Hooper

Brad Dacus is one of the figures leading the charge to repeal California's law protecting transgender students. On the most recent agenda of his radio show, he admitted what his fight is really all about.

After interviewing both an "ex-transgender" and an "ex-gay," Dacus concluded with the following prayer to save people from "Satan's dominion":

This is what drives me so crazy about debates like the current one over trans rights in California. We know what the people leading the charge truly want: for us to not be L, G, B, or T. That is the end game; that is the goal. It's not about this policy or that law—it's about "changing" us. In almost every instance, this is the underlying motivation.

Yet we are supposed to pretend like we don't know that and continue to engage them in a two-sided conversation, as if they are having anything resembling the same conversation as us. It's maddening, frankly.

If you think that LGBT people are under Satan's snare, you are probably not going to support a policy that makes life a little more accommodating for them and their "devilish" ways. It is not unfair to point that out! In fact, responsible media outlets covering this and other LGBT rights debates should do so, and clearly.
