Albany (ChurchMilitant.com) - New York, Seattle and San Francisco are turning on North Carolina because of the new Public Facilities Privacy and Security Act, which says people must use public restrooms that correspond to their biological sex.

When North Carolina governor Pat McCrory signed a bill last week protecting women from sexual predators, he was immediately attacked by transgender political activists.

In protest to the new law, New York governor Andrew Cuomo signed an executive order Monday banning all "non-essential" travel to North Carolina by state workers or those funded by the state. The order mandates that all New York corporations prevent any publicly funded travel that is not "essential" to public safety or law enforcement.

Cuomo's actions follow the example of San Francisco mayor Ed Lee and Seattle mayor Ed Murray, who also banned non-essential, publicly funded travel to North Carolina.

Governor Cuomo has a history of supporting the transgender political agenda. He has banned conversion therapy for people who struggle with unnatural sexual inclinations, calling it "hateful." In return, he received the National Equality Award from the Human Rights Campaign, the nation's largest LGBT organization.

Now a federal lawsuit has been filed against Gov. McCrory by the American Civil Liberties Union, Equality North Carolina, and various sodomite supporters.

Governor McCrory is defending his decision, saying that allowing men to use women's bathrooms "defies common sense," signing the bill to overrule a pro-transgender ordinance in the city of Charlotte.

"The way the ordinance was written by City Council in Charlotte, it would have allowed a man to go into a bathroom, locker or any changing facility, where women are," said North Carolina House Speaker Tim Moore. "Obviously there is a security risk of a sexual predator."
