As a practicing Christian , I think it’s important to hold all students at Christian Schools to a biblical standard of personal moral conviction. Whether it’s substance abuse or non-biblical sexual choices, we can’t pretened that these issues, when tolerated, don’t influence the children–.particularly when accomodations are made for non-straight students– who want us to support their fantasy of being a different gender.
If your school caves to the pressure of the anti-christ LGBT forces, What kind of message will this compliance send to straight children?
Many schools are not aware that President Obama’s call to action for school bathroom’s to accomodate transgender stuent’s does NOT have the force of the law behind it. Though some media sources have referenced the President’s declaration to be law, it most definately is NOT a legal requirement, though the Obama administration would like for you to think so. Please don’t be fooled by this.
And PLEASE don’t make a deal with the devil, because it won’t stop there; already in one school, a teacher was awarded “damages” because faculty members referred to her as “she” instead of “he”. The school voluntarily awarded her “damages” rather than going to court.
Some may believe that if this trangender bathroom policy is issued, that there will be strong enough Christian students to counter-act it through private conversations with the transgender peer about the sinfulness of their behaviour.
But is that an appropriate alternative? Isn’t Christian school suppossed to be the place where all students are taught via the staff and curriculum about the biblical standards set forth for their expected behaviour? And will student-to-student evangelism even be possible? A day care worker in Texas was recently fired because she refused to require children to address a student by her “new” gender.
She was ordered to address the transgender child by the new preferred name in addition to a different gender. She explains: “the child left school Friday as “Sally” and returned on Monday going by “Johnny.”
Then the expelled teacher perfectly described the scenario:
“To inflict upon a little 6-year-old girl the heavy decision of her sexual identity is nothing short of child abuse.”
You are opening a can of worms by allowing this compromise. I admonish you to heed the word of Dan Patrick, the Texas lieutenant governor who recently made headlines by claiming states were being blackmailed.
He aptly called it “making a deal with the devil”, and said the state is willing to forfeit potentially “billions of dollars” in federal funding that provides free meals for underprivileged schoolchildren rather than adhere to the federal government’s warning.
“Well, in Texas, he can keep his 30 pieces of silver. We will not yield to blackmail from the president of the United States”
Conclusion: Christian School is meant to be a pure, godly envirionment where impressionable children are taught how to make and affirm godly, moral choices.I beg of you, staff, faculty, and administration, to heed the word of our good shepherd. On judgement day, your school will answer for the moral compromises it thrust upon the tender consciences of Jesus’ little lambs.
“If one of these little children believes in me, and someone causes that child to sin, it will be very bad for that person. It would be better for them to have a millstone tied around their neck and be drowned in the sea.” Mark 9:42
