The non-profit legal advocacy group Liberty Counsel plans to confront Macy’s because the retailer dismissed a clerk who intervened when a man headed for the women’s dressing room.

Clerk Natalie Johnson, according to Liberty Counsel, reported that she saw a man walking out of the fitting room reserved for women at the San Antonio, Texas, Macy’s and “politely told him that he could not go back in because it was for women only.”

Johnson later told her employer, the store chain featured in the classic “Miracle on 34th Street” as the “store with a heart,” that she could not allow a male to change in a females’ fitting room because of her religious beliefs. She cited the company’s policy that protects against religious discrimination.

Macy’s officials, however, ordered her to allow “transgender” customers to change in any dressing room they wished and warned that if she wouldn’t comply she would be fired.

“Johnson refused to go against her sincerely held religious beliefs and was terminated from her job,” Liberty Counsel reported.

The man seen coming out of the women’s room was “cross-dressing” and said he is “female,” the legal group said.

Some of the man’s friends then “argued with expletives that Macy’s is LGBT-friendly, to which Johnson replied that Macy’s is also non-discriminatory toward religion and that it would go against her religious beliefs to lie that he was a woman or compromise with homosexuality,” Liberty Counsel said.

“Macy’s policy which allows men to use the women’s dressing room is fraught with problems,” said Mathew Staver, founder of Liberty Counsel. “This policy will cause significant problems and will alienate the majority of Macy’s customers.

      What we are apparently dealing with here is a male to female (MTF) transgender person: sometimes described as a female trapped in a male body, or as a person with a female brain who was born a male body.

      Now that homosexuals are now largely accepted by Americans, religious and social conservatives appear to be transferring their dislike to one of the last identifiable groups to achieve equal rights. In this case, it is for the woman simply to be treated like a woman.

      This will be the next civil rights battle.

        The problem with the assertion is that it fails to recognize that homosexuals and transgendered people already have equal rights. They have the same rights under the Constitution that heterosexual people have. What they are asking for is “special” rights.

          I disagree. Heterosexuals have the right to marry the person that they love and are committed to. Homosexuals cannot in almost all states. Same-sex couples can marry in a few states, but the federal government refuses to extend about 1,150 government benefits to them,

            Again, homosexuals have the same rights under the Constitution that heterosexuals have. What they are asking for is special rights. As far as your comments about government benefits, it’s because marriage is between a woman and a man. Are you going to support poligamy and special rights for them? How about the guy who wants to marry his dog? maybe a man a barbie doll? Are you willing to support them as a legitimate marriage? I would hope not.
