Whenever you read about the passion for ‘caring, compassion, and moral duty’ from the left you must keep in mind that when a clash occurs between ideology and ‘caring, compassion, and moral duty’, ideology always wins.

And when we refer to the left we mean the entire Democrat party and almost all the federal, state, and local administrative bodies. And this includes Red states.

Alaska provides a perfect example, courtesy of a report from the Alliance Defending Freedom.

Anchorage, Alaska, is fortunate to have a dedicated Christian organization called the Hope Center. According to the Alliance, “The Hope Center is a Christian non-profit that offers job skills training, daily meals, laundry, and clothing for any man and woman in need during the day — all free of charge.”

So far, so good.

But for the keyboard Social Justice Warriors in the Anchorage city bureaucracy when the sun goes down the trouble starts. “At night, the Hope Center becomes a shelter for women, many of whom have escaped sex trafficking, domestic violence, rape, and other emotional and physical abuse. ‘Inspired by the love of Jesus,’ the Hope Center’s mission is to ‘offer those in need support, shelter, sustenance, and skills to transform their lives.’”

The trouble emanates from the word “women.”

Last January a mentally disturbed man claiming to be a woman showed up drunk and injured one night and demanded entrance to a building filled with real women. Since the Hope Center is both a Christian and a sane organization it paid for a cab to take the man to a local hospital.

Then the steely-eyed apparatchiks at the comically named “Anchorage Equal Rights Commission” decide it was time to teach Christians a lesson in worshiping government. It filed a lawsuit against the Hope Center with the intent to force Hope to allow men to bunk next to women.

As the ADF points out — and confirms our previous explanation — “The city’s motivation is clear. It wants to force this faith-based homeless shelter to get on board with its political agenda — all at the expense of the women that the Hope Center serves.”

Alliance Defending Freedom Legal Counsel Denise Harle explains, “Many of the women Downtown Hope Center serves have suffered rape, physical abuse, and domestic violence. They shouldn’t be forced to sleep or disrobe in the same room as a man. Abused women need a safe place to stay, but, incredibly, Anchorage is trying to take that place away.”

The alternative the city bureaucrats are offering the Hope Center is embrace a lie and admit a man into a women’s shelter or close its doors to everyone.

That’s leftist ‘caring, compassion, and moral duty’ in all its totalitarian glory.
