Quiz: Thou Shalt Not Tell A Lie June 02, 2016
Thou Shalt Not Tell A Lie is a new quiz on Interfaith VoicesTwo statements are false; one is true. It's up to you to figure out which is which. Vote here on the statement you think is correct!

For this week's quiz, we turn to one of the latest political battlegrounds: the bathroom! Specifically, we're referring to efforts to block transgender people from using public bathrooms that correspond with their gender identity-- a debate that's sometimes been framed by religious beliefs.

So, which of these statements is true about religious views of the transgender community? 

1. Southern Baptists surprised the Evangelical world by creating a special re-naming ceremony for Baptists coming out as a new gender. 

2. Hinduism has long recognized a gender category that is neither male or female, called the "fourth gender." 

3. The nation of Iran, a Muslim country where homosexuality is outlawed, is a top destination for gender reassignment surgery. 

Tune in next week for the correct answer!
