California Transgender Rights Bill Is 'An Affront To God' And Children, Claims Pastor Jack Hibbs

Pastor Jack Hibbs has joined the chorus of right-wing voices who have condemned California's transgender student rights legislation.

As Right Wing Watch first reported, Hibbs appeared on California Pastor Jim Garlow's podcast, where he declared California's Assembly Bill 1266 "an affront to God" and children.

"This is the most aggressive, the most dangerous bit of legislation against the child and against family than any other in the history of the United States," Hibbs of the Calvary Chapel in Chino Hills, Calif. noted. "We've never seen a government pass such an insane bill as this."

Unfortunately, Gibbs is not alone in his dissent. "This radical bill warps the gender expectations of children by forcing all California public schools to permit biological boys in girls restrooms, showers, clubs and on girls sports teams and biological girls in boys restrooms, showers, clubs and sports teams," Randy Thomasson of savecalifornia.com told Fox News earlier this year. "This is insanity."

Meanwhile, conservative evangelist Pat Robertson condemned the legislation as "insane" and absurd" on a recent installment of "The 700 Club," even comparing members of the transgender community to his castrated horse, Right Wing Watch also originally reported.

"We talk about transgender -- I have a former stallion who is now a gelding because stallions get very aggressive, but he wasn't trying to be a girl; we just made him into a less aggressive male," Robertson noted earlier this month.
