Feds Blackmail School to Adopt Transsexual Policy
Faith and Freedom with Liberty Counsel’s Mat Staver, and BarbWire.com Founder Matt Barber… An 11-minute weekday radio program discussing hot topics in the area of religious liberty, the sanctity of human life and the family.
The federal government is blackmailing Virginia’s largest school district into adopting a “so-called” transsexual policy in their school.
Mat Staver: This is another example of this Obama administration actually using coercive bully pulpit tactics to force school districts into promoting a very anti-moral agenda. In this particular case, since 2009, the Obama Administration has expanded its power-grabbing efforts over a lot of different areas, including our public schools, and now they’re telling the Fairfax County, Virginia, School Board that if they don’t adopt a policy with respect to transsexual students (they would call them transgendered students) then they will lose federal funding in the amount of about $42 million. They say that Title IX requires that they include these kinds of policies, yet Title IX requires no such thing. This is the Obama Administration, the Department of Education, the Department of Justice, forcing its anti-Judeo-Christian value system on public schools.
Matt Barber: …this is absolutely Orwellian, it’s bullying…when the Left doesn’t like the terms, the Left redefines the terms. This is nothing that has passed through legislation. What the Left…what the Obama Administration has done here is it has disingenuously claimed that Title IX, which prevents sex discrimination based on a person’s sex, that it prevents schools, or requires affirmatively that schools in Virginia — and frankly schools across the country — that this, what’s happening in Fairfax, is really the test run.
They’re saying that it requires that they open up the…in high schools for instance, middle schools…that they open up the girls’ showers to boys. Fully biological boys, who just claim on a whim that “today feel I like my gender identity is female.” The language of Title IX clearly defines what they’re talking about by gender, by sex — they’re talking about male and female, biological male and female.
