Listen to the audio version of this column:
Last week the anti-Christian hate mongers of the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) successfully bullied a Mississippi Gulf Coast school district into giving obeisance to the homofascist agenda. It was the Moss Point School District that caved in the face of lawfare waged by the SPLC on behalf of a homosexual high school student who claims she was bullied at school. Did this really need a lawsuit? Don’t schools already have in place rules against bad behavior like bullying? Regardless, the end result is perfectly in line with the goals of the radical homosexual movement. The school district “settled,” and besides paying out an undisclosed amount of money to the purportedly aggrieved 18-year-old homosexual, the district agreed to change its policies to accommodate homosexual and “transgender” expression.
As part of the settlement, the district will adopt new anti-bullying and discrimination policies and procedures, as well as policies to prohibit bullying and harassment based on sexual orientation and gender identity or expression, according to the Southern Poverty Law Center.
The organization filed the federal lawsuit in 2013 on behalf of Destin Holmes, now 18, who said she was bullied to the point of leaving Magnolia Middle School in 2012 to be home-schooled.
… Moss Point schools’ district equal educational opportunities policy now reads: “Every pupil of the district will have equal educational opportunities regardless of race, color, creed, sex, handicap, sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, religion or marital status. No student shall be excluded on such basis from participating in or having access to any course offerings, athletics, counseling, employment assistance, and extra-curricular activities.”
There goes the freedom of—say—an extra-curricular Christian club to require its members embrace the clear teachings of the Bible (freedom of association). There goes the ability of schools to adhere to common-sense policies of not allowing a mentally ill boy who imagines he’s a girl to use the girls’ bathroom or come to school dressed as a girl. This is lunacy, but in our increasingly demented society, appeals to right, moral reason are no longer accepted.
This is one of the latest examples of members of the radical homosexual movement and their proxies using the courts to advance their tyrannical agenda in the public square. This latest attack on reason was directed at a school district, but at its heart this movement is set against the God of the Bible and His children. It’s not about “marriage equality” or “equal rights” or “anti-bullying.” It’s about subjugating the American people under the despotic boot of sexual degeneracy, the result of which is a crushing of our God-given freedoms, protected by the First Amendment.
Whether or not the high school girl was bullied is not the point here. The point was to effect, through lawfare intimidation, a policy change in the Moss Point school district to impose the acceptance and tolerance of open homosexual and “transgender” expression, which, in turn, is part of a much larger movement. This large, powerful, well-funded movement is an evil tool being used against our freedoms and that pesky First Amendment which guards them.
The SPLC is made up of members-in-good-standing of this radical leftist movement. They labor against truth and reason, and especially freedom of Christian expression. In a sane nation, the SPLC would have no credibility, but this nation has taken leave of sanity. We’re watching the foot soldiers of the militant homosexualist brigade leap their way to power over our freedoms with the help of groups like the SPLC, that are not only given credibility, but whose members are held up as “experts” on what they falsely label as “hate groups,” which, in the twisted minds of those who run the SPLC, just happen to be any groups that stand in the way of the radical Left’s agenda.
Again, I repeat my warning to America, that if these people of the militant homosexual movement are not stopped, we will lose some of our fundamental freedoms. At this late hour, I don’t know that we will be able to stop this, especially with the Supreme Court on the verge of imposing an abomination of marriage on the United States, but we should certainly speak up against this evil movement while we still can and continue to pray for this wayward nation that the Lord will grant us undeserved mercy.
