Let’s go over this past week, we got lots of news about the story from Loudon county Virginia public schools. Previously, we found out that the police were called in to investigate the rape of a female student. User of rape kit confirmed that the child had been raped. The suspect is a transgender female (biological male).How did the public schools and the Biden administration respond?
So, let’s go over the facts again briefly, from my previous post:
Per the report, [parent Scott] Smith was at the [Loudon county public] school board meeting because his daughter had been raped by a transgender boy in the girls’ bathroom at Stone Bridge High School. What transpired after that was almost as sickening as the act itself.
Smith was given a no-trespassing order prior to the meeting that forbids him from telling his story. This was all part of an elaborative cover-up by the school district to not publicize the rape of his daughter. In fact, when Smith showed up at the school to complain about what had happened, they essentially accused him of lying and called the police, not on the transgender rapist, but on Smith himself for causing a scene. Luckily, he was able to get his daughter a rape kit that evening that confirmed the crime.
The public schools are all-in on pushing transgenderism in the schools, and championing the right of transgender women (biological men) to enter the bathrooms and change rooms of girls and women. Do you remember that case of the Canadian transgender woman (biological man) who demanded that female massage therapists wax his male genitals? That’s what these public school s support. What’s surprising is the next part – their response to being caught.
The Washington Free Beacon reports:
An email released by Virginia’s Loudoun County Public Schools shows the district superintendent knew of a rape case in a high school bathroom weeks before he said there had been no reports of sexual assaults in the district’s restrooms.
Superintendent Scott Ziegler emailed school board members on May 28, the day a boy who identified as “gender fluid” allegedly raped a female peer in a women’s restroom in Stone Bridge High School.
[…]Less than a month later, however, the superintendent claimed in a meeting that the district had no “record of assaults occurring in our restrooms.”
It’s not just this one school:
The alleged perpetrator was arrested in July but released and allowed to attend school while investigators processed DNA evidence. He was transferred to Broad Run High School, where he allegedly assaulted another student in a classroom on Oct. 6.
And what about the teachers?
Beth Barts, one of the school board members who said transgender students pose no threat to their cisgender peers, announced her resignation days after the Daily Wire reported on the rape allegations. Loudoun County Public Schools said they could not comment on student records in a previous statement to the Washington Free Beacon.
Remember, every public school teacher pays union dues to teacher unions, and the vast majority of that money goes to Democrats. So these people are on board with the Democrat agenda.
The latest news is that the school board association actually collaborated with the White House on a letter that labels parents who disagree with the conduct of public schools as “domestic terrorists”. THE WHITE HOUSE.
The Washington Free Beacon explains:
The country’s largest school board association collaborated with the Biden White House before sending a controversial letter calling on the FBI to investigate parents as potential domestic terrorists, according to previously unreported emails.
So, I’m thinking that this is the position of the Biden administration, and of the voters who elected him. This is what they believe about parents. When parents object to biological males in female bathrooms, the teachers, administrators and school boards agree: they’re “domestic terrorists”. And you can bet they had no such criticism of the left-wing rioters and looters who caused TWO BILLION DOLLARS OF DAMAGE. They were just peaceful protesters, who needed space to riot and loot.
The response of establishment evangelical Christians
But what about the response of pious, charismatic Christian leaders to news stories like this?
Here is pastor Matt Chandler, who is a featured contributor the ERLC web site, explaining his views on biological males in female bathrooms, showers and changing rooms:
Here’s what Matt Chandler says about Trump voters who opposed having biological men in women’s bathrooms, showers and changing rooms:
I think people are frightened. I think people are frightened at the speed at which things are changing culturally. So I think they begin to grasp for something that might help. The Obama presidency, great man, some of his policies and the way he rolled out his policies really really scared evangelicals. And without any kind of real help from Pastors and ministers to help us understand, the news media just whipped us into a frenzy and made people feel desperate.
[…]But I think especially around topics like homosexuality where we are quick to say it’s a sin.
[…][P]eople were terrified by that bathroom bill… the thought that their children were going to be in a bathroom with the opposite sex, and… that made [conservatives] go “whoever the opposition is to that I’m voting for” and then they lost their soul on that…
That’s the defense of ethics and religious liberty that you get from a pastor who has majored in tallness, handsomeness and charisma. In order to be a courageous Christian, though, you have to spend more time in the books: Thomas Sowell, Stephen C. Meyer, William Lane Craig, Voddie Baucham, Nancy Pearcey, Jay Richards, Ryan T. Anderson, etc.
The problem with people like Matt Chandler is that they lack courage. He’s a coward in the face of the secular left, because he wants them to like him. He is too lazy to learn how to debate these issues. His laziness leads to ignorance. And his ignorance causes him to behave like a coward when he’s challenged by the secular left. Next time we have an election, don’t listen to progressive groups like TGC, 9Marks, Acts 29, ERLC, Christianity Today, etc. They’re cowards.
