My mind boggles over both the swiftness and comprehensiveness of the new sexual revolution. It is a revolution that has as one of its goals the complete overthrow of Scripture’s teaching on the nature of humanity and the sexual boundaries which are vital to human health and flourishing.
Today brought news that the Obama Administration, finding free time between battling international terrorism and record-breaking under employment has issued a decree to our nation’s public schools: Conform or else.
The following guidelines explaining the new “obligations” of public schools are from the joint report issued by our nation’s departments of Justice and Education:
• Respond promptly and effectively to sex-based harassment of all students, including harassment based on a student’s actual or perceived gender identity, transgender status or gender transition;As you can see, there is no sitting out this revolution. You will be made to care. The new revolution’s battle for our children’s minds and allegiance now has the formal support of the state. The culture war has been brought into the living rooms of every household. The report from the Obama Administration makes clear that any school which does not comply with the rules of the new sexual revolution will face the retaliation of the Federal Government.
• Treat students consistent with their gender identity even if their school records or identification documents indicate a different sex;
• Allow students to participate in sex-segregated activities and access sex-segregated facilities consistent with their gender identity; and
• Protect students’ privacy related to their transgender status under Title IX and the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act.
