The Money, the Power, the Oppression, and the Corruption: Fairfax County Public Schools in northern Virginia say "they were mandated by the U.S. Department of Education’s Office of Civil Rights to add 'gender identity' to [its nondiscrimination] policy — or else risk losing federal funding," Todd Starnes writes at Fox News.
Read this story. In it, you see community leaders such as pastor Martin Baker of Burke Community Church take a stand, saying, "The damage and destruction to our children, teens and impacted adults will be incalculable.”
Baker warned in an email to his 3,000-member church that “everything from locker rooms to bathrooms will be potentially open for people who simply feel that their inner sexuality does not match their outer, physical sexuality."
School board member Elizabeth Schultz is outraged, according to Starnes. "While the underlying issue is somewhat sensational, it is the gravitas in overreach of the federal government and the implications thereof that is so very chilling,” she is quoted as telling Starnes.
"It could have implications for every public school district in the nation. If they’re going to come for us, they’re going to come to them next," Schultz said.
This story, and so many others like it, ought to send chills up the spine of any person who cares about education, who cares about students, and who cares about reasserting and sustaining a humane society in the United States.
We must realize that the attacks of secularists in government, and in other centers of cultural power, upon the freedom and dignity of Americans of all ages and in every sphere of society will continue for ever and ever, creating evermore havoc and hell on earth, until "We the People" rise up and throw the oppressor into the deep blue sea.
