The Liberty Council Head Encourages Anti-Transgender Violence

As suggested in the prior post, if one is worried about sexual abuse of minors, then your focus needs to be on "family values" Republicans.   While there have been ZERO reports of sexual misconduct by transgender individuals in restrooms, the same cannot be said for Republican elected officials.  Yet despite the documentation that transgender individuals pose no threat to others, what does the head of so-called "Christian law firm" Liberty Counsel do?  She states that she will be taking a pistol with her to Target stores to ostensibly protect herself from transgender sexual predators and to protest Target's announcement that transgender individuals are welcome to use the restroom of their preference. As an attorney, I find Liberty Counsel to be a despicable organizations for a number of reasons, not the least being the frauds they seek to perpetrate on courts through out right lies and fraudulent experts and deception.  All the while, of course, the organization's charlatans posture themselves as "godly Christians" and demand undeserved deference.  The Raw Story looks at this latest outrage by Liberty Counsel's morally bankrupt leadership.  Here are excerpts:
The president [high priestess] of theocratic law group The Liberty Council announced on the social medium Twitter that she plans to carry a gun with her to the women’s restroom at Target stores so that she can shoot anyone she thinks is transgender.
Blogger Joe My God wrote on Monday, “Liberty Counsel president Anita Staver declared Friday that she will be taking her Glock .45 handgun to Target as protection against assaults by transgender patrons.”
Anita Staver is married to Mat Staver, head of the legal team that defended Kentucky’s outspoken anti-marriage equality county clerk Kim Davis in her effort to deny same-sex couples the right to marry.
Conservative activists have worked themselves into a lather over Target stores’ decision to allow trans customers to use restrooms designated for their expressed gender. The group launched a #BoycottTarget campaign on social media last week.
