host Adam McManus interviews Brad Dacus, President of the Pacific Justice Institute, about why the Christian legal rights group
advocated on May 26th for two Wisconsin bills (AB 195 and AB 196)
which would prohibit biological men, pretending to be women, from
competing on women’s high school and college athletic teams.
To urge Wisconsin Democrat Governor Tony Evers to sign these bills into law, call 608-266-1212.
Ray Hacke, the Pacific Justice Institute attorney who testified before the Wisconsin legislature, has covered women's sports as a journalist and coaches his daughter in softball and basketball.
Hacke explained, “Since Title IX's passage in 1972, courts all over the country have made abundantly clear that because girls are typically at a physiological disadvantage when competing against boys, letting boys compete in girls' sports would relegate girls to being runners-up, benchwarmers, or spectators in their own sports. That would effectively deny them an equal opportunity to compete and undermine Title IX's purpose completely!”
Plus, he has already testified before legislatures in North Dakota, South Dakota, Missouri and Montana – either in person or via videoconferencing – and has advised lawmakers in Arkansas, Hawaii, Oklahoma, Tennessee, and West Virginia concerning their women's sports bills.
Genesis 1:27 declares, “So God created mankind in His own image, in the image of God He created them; male and female He created them.”
Homeschooled himself in the 1960's and 70's, Kevin Swanson and his wife, Brenda, are now homeschooling their five children. Since graduating from his homeschool and then serving as student body president of a large west coast university, he has gone on to other leadership positions in corporate management, church, and other non-profits.
