PGA Threatens Boycott of NC Over LGBT Law, Allows Players to Compete in Country Where Homosexuality is Illegal

The left’s war on the State of North Carolina continues unabated, on the heels of the NBA’s announcement to re-locate their 2017 All-Star Game due to North Carolina’s HB2 law, which makes the heinously draconian proclamation that men born as biological males use the men’s restroom, and women born as biological females use the women’s restroom.

The PGA has now weighed in. Threatening that they, too, will take their ball and go home if North Carolina’s legislature does not fold:

“The PGA of America strongly opposes North Carolina HB2. It contradicts our commitment to create an inclusive and welcoming environment at our events. We remain hopeful that the law will be changed,” the organization said in a written statement.

“Since the Quail Hollow Club in Charlotte is a private facility not subject to all of the provisions of HB2, at the 2017 PGA Championship we plan to allow spectators to use the restroom that conforms with their gender identity or gender expression. As we look to future events, our willingness to consider coming back to the State of North Carolina will be severely impacted unless HB2 is overturned.”

It should be noted that the PGA has no problem with their golfers competing in high-profile Golf events in places like Abu Dhabi. Where homosexuality is a criminal offense, punishable by fines, imprisonment, and even deportation.

But it’s good to know the PGA thinks North Carolina is a more morally reprehensible land than the UAE.
