I’d like to let you all know there is a disturbing trend going on in Christian and Catholic schools. A pair of teachers at a Colorado school called Valor Christian were asked to resign, and it was due to their being in relationships that went against the so called teachings at this school. Many LGBTQI+ students get disrespected and discriminated against, called the child’s assigned gender pronouns at birth, not the ones they express and identify as. This school must understand that they’re not alone.
There is more than one incident where a school banned the rainbow symbol, tried to be the God and Gender police, and their strict uniform dress codes scream, “Rape culture.” St. Teresa’s School could become one of many Christian and Catholic schools not affirming the lives of transgender students, gay students, and many more. The students who demonstrated outside Valor Christian, as I will say, have my blessing. You don’t even need the blessing of any particular person to know that Christian schools are abusing your tax dollars to abuse gay students. The father god complex that one woman historian talks about in her book Who Cooked the Last Supper is so present that it has the gall to abuse anyone who doesn’t worship this so called God the Father.
As a Christian school alum, I want to condemn and deplore all Christian private schools who abuse gay kids. IF you don’t call my child my daugher, not biological son, I will do what is necessary to shut down your school. IF you don’t respect my daughter’s or son’s or my child’s homosexual or gender fluid relationships, I will shut down the school. The bigotry and my buck stops here.
