RALEIGH, North Carolina (LifeSiteNews) – Republican North Carolina Lt. Gov. Mark Robinson refuses to back down after slamming the “filth” of transgenderism and homosexuality in a recently published video.

Robinson made his comments in a speech released last week in which he condemned sexualized pro-LGBT propaganda in school curriculums.

“There’s no reason anybody anywhere in America should be telling any child about transgenderism, homosexuality, any of that filth,” he said in June at Asbury Baptist Church. “And yes, I called it filth. And if you don’t like it that I called it filth, come see me, and I’ll explain it to you.”

“It’s time for us to stop letting these children be abused at these schools, and it’s not going to happen till the people of God stand up and demand different,” he added.

Robinson, a born-again Christian and the first African-American lieutenant governor of North Carolina, also blasted the Marxist, pro-LGBT Black Lives Matter movement.

“Black lives do not matter to Black Lives Matter,” he said. “You know how I know that? Because if they did, you know where they would be instead of being at the police station? They would be down there at the gang hangout, at the drug dealer’s house, burning that down.”

“They’d be down at the abortion clinic burning that down if Black lives really mattered,” Robinson said.

Democrats and LGBT activists immediately called for the lieutenant governor’s resignation after Right Wing Watch, an advocacy group with ties to George Soros, released a recording of his speech Wednesday.

North Carolina Democrat Gov. Roy Cooper criticized Robinson’s comments as “abhorrent,” according to the Raleigh News & Observer, echoing the Biden administration, which similarly attacked his defense of traditional Christian morality as “repugnant and offensive.”

Cooper added Wednesday that he thought it would be “appropriate” for Robinson to step down.

Lt. Gov. Robinson has steadfastly refused to apologize or resign, however, telling local news last week that “it is time for parents in this state to take a strong stand for their children.”

“We will not be intimidated. We will not back down. We will not change our language,” he said in an interview with WRAL. “The language I used, I am not ashamed of it. I will use it in the future because, again, it is time for parents in this state to take a strong stand for their children.”

Gov. Cooper’s criticism “makes no difference whatsoever,” Robinson continued. “I am tired of folks on the right being demonized for our speech while folks on the left burn, beat, rob, loot — take over entire cities and get a pass.”

“Homosexuality is not a culture. Homosexuality is a sexual preference, and sexual preferences, I believe, do not need to be discussed in our schools.”

PETITION UPDATE (9/3/21)

Following the US Supreme Court's decision to allow Texas' Heartbeat Law to go into effect, Joe Biden made the announcement that he would initiate a "whole-of-government" response against the new pro-life statute which could ban abortions after a fetal heartbeat is detected.

This is yet another, outright confirmation of Biden's openly pro-abortion policies, policies which have the main objective of ensuring that women will continue to be able to kill their own children without impediment.

This anti-life, anti-Catholic stance needs to be urgently addressed and condemned by the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops.

For the good of the Church, for the good of pre-born babies, for the good of the faithful, and, indeed, for his own good, Joe Biden needs to be publicly rebuked by the bishops and excommunicated until such time as he repents from his pro-abortion policies.

Please continue to SIGN and SHARE this petition, which asks the bishops of the United States to act in unison to exclude Joe Biden from Holy Communion for his scandalous promotion of abortion - the murder of the innocent.

After signing, please take a moment to CONTACT the offices of the USCCB to politely, but firmly, encourage the Conference to take the necessary steps to exclude from Holy Communion public officials who continue to show blatant disregard for innocent human life and the Church's teaching.

The USCCB's Office phone number is: 202.541.3000

Thank you!

"No man can serve two masters. For either he will hate the one, and love the other: or he will sustain the one, and despise the other. You cannot serve God and mammon." - Matthew 6:24

In the lead-up to their meeting in mid-June, we call on the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) to exclude Joe Biden and other “Catholic” politicians (like, Nancy Pelosi) from Holy Communion over their public, obstinate, and scandalous promotion of abortion.

Please SIGN and SHARE this petition which asks the USCCB to act to stop the abuse of the reception of the Holy Eucharist by politicians who promote the murder of innocent pre-born babies.

We know that making a decision to exclude public figures from Holy Communion is not easy. But, sometimes, this is the only way to make them understand the error of their ways, and to preserve the Church from serious scandal.

Indeed, Canon Law (Canon 915) declares that those who persist in manifest, grave sin should not be admitted to Holy Communion

Beyond that, at this point, public excommunication appears as the only suitable response for Biden's obstinate, public and grave sin of promoting abortion.

In doing so, we do not hold ourselves up as judges over Joe Biden's eternal soul, but we encourage the bishops to make known one of the consequences of public and obstinate support of abortion by our 'Catholic' politicians.

The fact is, in terms of the manifest, grave sin of abortion, Joe Biden is as bad as he said he would be before the election.

Therefore, it is cold comfort that the USCCB is only preparing to discuss this issue only now.

But even now, if the USCCB publicly excommunicate Biden for his pro-abortion stance (as well as other pro-abortion politicians), the Conference could reclaim some of the moral authority which they lost by their largely silent assent to Biden's candidacy.

Please SIGN and SHARE this petition, now.

Since Joe Biden was sworn-in on the 20th of January, he has wasted no time in signing orders and bills which facilitate the destruction of unborn human life.

  • In one executive order, Biden rescinded the Mexico City Policy prohibiting the federal government from spending taxpayer monies on abortion and the promotion of abortion.
  • Biden also signed (instead of vetoing) the COVID relief bill, which, for the first time in 44 years, contained funding for abortions in America, using taxpayer dollars.
  • Biden said that he wouldn't defend Hyde, and he hasn't.

And, if he and the Democratic Party get their way, a lot more of the same regarding abortion is on the way.

Strong action must be taken lest anyone, especially young people, be confused by the scandal of a "Catholic" in Biden's position aggressively promoting abortion, enabling the killing of innocent human beings.

American rank-and-file Catholics don't want any more compromise and equivocation from the Bishops Conference on this "pre-eminent" life-and-death issue.

We want clear action, not twenty more years of dithering and "dialoguing."

50 million babies have been lost to abortion in the U.S. since Roe!

So, we will NOT accept any more lives lost as a result of dithering and "dialoguing." [**Please see "Notes" below about how it has been reported that some senior U.S. clerics are trying to prevent this discussion from even taking place.]

And, we will especially NOT accept one life lost to abortion by politicians who claim the Catholic Faith, but who promote grave evil. God forbid!

With all due respect to these bishops, they diminish the Holy Eucharist and their high office, as well as cause grave scandal to the faithful, by not imposing public canonical penalties on a man who is promoting mass murder of the unborn against the constant teaching of the Church.

The bishops are now at a crossroads and must choose either God or mammon.

We call on them to choose God and choose Life!

And we also continue to encourage those brave, true and good bishops who have done well to warn Amercian Catholics about the perils to the unborn and the Faith resulting from Biden's promotion of abortion!

SIGN and SHARE this petition, which asks the bishops of the United States to act in unison to exclude Joe Biden from Holy Communion for his scandalous promotion of abortion - the murder of the innocent.

After signing, please take a moment to CONTACT the offices of the USCCB to politely, but firmly, encourage the Conference to take the necessary steps to exclude from Holy Communion public officials who continue to show blatant disregard for innocent human life and the Church's teaching.

The USCCB's Office phone number is: 202.541.3000

Notes about USCCB's June Meeting:

For nearly twenty years, the US bishops have been dithering about whether or not to excommunicate pro-abortion politicians by formally withholding Holy Communion from them.

Their indecision on this gravely scandalous matter is a scandal in itself, but one of the biggest obstacles has been internal opposition from senior U.S. bishops.

And, although the faces have changed in the last 20 years, their morally-and-intellectually-challenged arguments against excommunication have not changed.

Liberal bishops of the USCCB say that excommunicating Biden (for example) would divide the Church, divide the bishops, and would politicize the reception of Holy Communion.

Indeed, in the name of “unity,” it is reported that some senior U.S. clerics, including Cardinal Blase Cupich (Chicago), Cardinal Wilton Gregory (Washington, DC) and Cardinal O’Malley (Boston), have been working overtime to prevent any substantial discussion of so-called “Eucharist coherence” (that is, what qualifies as worthy reception of Holy Communion).

It is also reported that at least 57 other American bishops allegedly joined these Cardinals in a recent letter to the Head of the Bishops Conference, Archbishop Gomez of Los Angeles, to try to pressure him to drop the planned discussion at the full meeting of bishops in June.

And now, even the Vatican is getting involved, with the head of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith suggesting that even more “dialogue” is needed.

These same clerics may mistakenly believe that any attempt to suppress the objective connection between a politician’s promotion of abortion and his unworthy reception of Holy Communion will fool anyone.

But, it will not.

Rank-and-file Catholics are not stupid and can smell compromise a mile away, and we’ve had enough.

With all due respect to the Cardinal, bishops, and the Vatican…those who fail to act diminish the Holy Eucharist and their high office, as well as cause grave scandal to the faithful, by “dialoguing” with a man who is promoting mass murder of the unborn against the constant teaching of the Church.

Please SIGN and SHARE this urgent petition urging the bishops Conference to take action at their June meeting to exclude pro-abortion Joe Biden and other abortion-promoting “Catholic” politicians from Holy Communion.

Robinson doubled down again in a press conference yesterday in which he exposed graphic sexual content in LGBT books increasingly found in schools across the United States.

“We talking about materials – inappropriate materials – that are being presented to our children. And we’re talking about those politicians who have demonized me because I’m trying to get this out of our classrooms,” he said Tuesday, adding that “not only are we not resigning, we are not going to stop until the schools of North Carolina are safe from this kind of filth.”

Robinson has previously taken aim at explicit and political content in school lessons as lieutenant governor, announcing a task force earlier this year with the purpose of “exposing indoctrination in the classroom.”

The initiative, titled FACTS, released a report in August detailing 500 allegations of North Carolina teachers sexualizing children, “white shaming” students, and pushing far-left causes, including transgenderism and critical race theory.

North Carolina Republican leaders have largely backed Robinson in recent days, with the state’s Republican Party saying this week that it “stands with Lt. Gov. Robinson,” and “resolutely defends parents’ ultimate authority over their children’s education and opposed the inclusion of explicit and intrusive materials which have no place in North Carolina classrooms.”

“Republicans across North Carolina stand with Lt. Governor Robinson in fighting for these principles.”

“I agree with the Lt. Governor that it is inappropriate for our children to be exposed to sexually explicit images in reading materials provided by our schools,” North Carolina House speaker Rep. Tim Moore also said in a statement yesterday.

“The Lt. Governor has clarified his statements and has said plainly that he was describing this reading material, not any person or community, in his remarks. Furthermore, the outpouring of racist, disturbing voicemails and messages directed at Lt. Gov. Robinson and his family are shameful and abhorrent,” Moore noted.

During his press conference Tuesday, Robinson revealed a slew of racist messages and death threats that he and his office have received since last week. One voicemail from an apparently homosexual man called for the Black Republican to be “hang[ed] from the highest tree.”

“I would submit to you that I’m the one who is under attack right now with threats of violence,” Robinson said.

The first-term lieutenant governor is known for a conservative, pro-family background that has repeatedly made him a target of the left.

In August, Robinson condemned transgenderism as a “demonic” movement “dragging our kids into the pit of Hell.” “If there’s a movement in this country that is demonic and that is full of anti, the spirit of anti-Christ, it is the transgender movement,” he told a Christian church in Raleigh.

While a private citizen, Robinson had similarly slammed an infamous National Geographic magazine cover glorifying a gender-confused child. “The sick, deranged, sexual degenerates who promote this type of demonic behavior are the ones who will take the next step in our continuing moral decline toward total depravity,” he wrote on Facebook at the time. “Free love, then homosexuality.”
