Sexual Immorality Is Not Equivalent To The Civil Rights Movement

On equating sexual immorality to the Civil Rights movement:

The modern narrative cheapens the racial nature of the Civil Rights Movement and the plight of those who labored, and reassigns definitions to labels that have existed since the beginning of creation, similar to Jim Crow.

Blacks were not asking to use facilities in keeping with some perceived self identification. They were asking to use facilities in keeping with who they were, while maintaining and upholding God's transcendent, moral definitions for family, person, gender. But since multiculturalism has replaced history, and postmodernism has replaced absolutes it is easy to make an appeal to a historic event, out of context, to add political luster to sinful cravings.
