Government Policing School Bathrooms?

Our public schools became incubators for misguided sex education around fifty years ago, but few realized where it would eventually take us. Those who led the sexual revolution viewed sexuality as a means of transforming human beings in order to usher in a more ideal society. Their Utopia was to have no moral restraints and no restrictions whatsoever on sexual behavior.  It seems our current president and his administration are in lockstep with them.

President Obama has ordered that all public schools make it a priority to allow transgender students into whatever bathrooms they prefer. This will no doubt include locker rooms, dorm rooms and sports teams soon. His policy will also affect speech codes for teachers and students.  No one will be allowed to question a student who claims to be transgender or ask for any proof. One has to wonder if the goal is to totally remove gender identification from our schools.

We know Hillary Clinton will be in complete agreement with such policy, and Donald Trump has shrugged his shoulders when questioned on the transgender issue.  He doesn’t seem to have a problem with the president’s bathroom mandate.

So, what can concerned parents do about it?  Not a lot unless they can get their children out of public schools.  Parents can and must push their state government to resist by expanding the voucher system and even refusing federal funding to their schools if necessary.

David French, staff writer for National Review, has wisely suggested that churches form coalitions to provide support for their communities’ best private schools. Concerned citizens must pursue every avenue open to us in order to combat this very real destruction of our culture.

What the Transgender Issue is About

 

As an educator for nearly forty years teaching in three states in different locales in both regular and special classes, I never encountered a single transgender student.  So why have we seemingly had an explosion of children with this issue?

The truth is that we haven’t.  However, it fits the agenda of those who want to use it to increase their control over America.  It comes from the same people who have pushed other social protest movements.  It comes from the reality that many people gravitate easily toward a cause whether legitimate or contrived, the same reality that creates cults like followers of Jim Jones.  Unfortunately the youth and naive adults are perfect targets for this mind manipulation, and especially in a society that has done everything possible to prevent teaching students logic and reasoning skills.

So, what is the goal?  Votes!  Getting enough people sidetracked into thinking this issue is so extremely important that they must support whoever will promise to “do the right thing” to fix it–is what it’s really about.

For God fearing people who are shaking their heads and wondering where it is all leading and what we can do to stop it, take heart from what the Psalmist wrote:

“Hide me from the conspiracy of the wicked, from that noisy crowd of evil doers.  They sharpen their tongues like swords and aim their words like deadly arrows…They encourage each other in evil plans…They plot injustice and say, ‘We have devised a perfect plan’…But God will…turn their own tongues against them and bring them to ruin.'” (Psalm 64: 2-8)
