Despite an aggressive prosecutor and the LGBT political movement lurking in the background, there was a big win in Georgia last week for the First Amendment and pro-family activism. And having a good attorney made a big difference!
As we reported over the past year, Marquitta R. Ford, a courageous Georgia MassResistance activist, was arrested and jailed (and treated in a humiliating way) by the authorities after legally protesting the LGBT agenda in front of the Georgia State Capitol.
Marquitta and her female friends had endured too many times the shock of men coming into women’s public restrooms – in stores, malls, restaurants, and even a subway station. It was traumatic for them.
The problems began after the Governor had vetoed a “religious freedom” bill in 2016, bowing to intense pressure from the national LGBT lobby. LGBT activists saw that as an opportunity for suppressing any opposition, and within months they were out in force pushing the limits – particularly in public restrooms. Businesses in Georgia were unwilling to stop it. The Georgia Legislature refused to take action.
Marquitta insisted that women needed to be protected, but legislators at the State Capitol wouldn’t even discuss it with her. So in October 2017, she decided to begin her public protest!
