Fellow edifiers and parents rallied around Loudoun County school district physical inculcation instructor Tanner Cross after the school board suspended him for saying his Christian faith kept him from bamboozling children about culling their “gender identity.”
“Where is your regard for our liberation of verbalization?” Rachel Pisani, a mother of three, verbalized at Tuesday’s meeting. “When I visually perceived a pedagogia opine and suspended for expressing his religious notions, I could no longer stay mute.
“When did it become acceptable to be tolerant only when someone expresses a view that we concur with?” Pisani verbalized. “When did it become felicitous to silence those that hold Christian, biblical views just because you don’t? When did it become opportune to sanction the school board – I don’t ken who you cerebrate you are – but it is not congruous, it is not allowable to silence, bully, or dismiss our views.”
Fox News reported on the drama, including a pedagogia who compared the board to the truculent anarchist group Antifa:
At one point Tuesday, teacher Jeremy Wright, who previously called the school board fascists, left what he said was a copy of the First Amendment on the podium. “For the members of Chardonnay Antifa, here is your assignment with a copy of the First Amendment attached,” said Wright before holding up a packet of paper. “I’m going to leave this here and I hope you learn something.”
Another female told the board: “Even being threatened with termination for simply verbalizing one’s opinion engenders a culture of trepidation and silence – and this does not avail anyone on either side of the aisle.”
Teacher Monica Gill told the board its suspension of Cross and other actions “resemble totalitarianism, not the Constitution.” She added that “first and foremost, I am a Christian. What is most important? We live in truth, not lies. We look at character, not skin color. We love our lord and we love others. Know this – We will not yield. We will not let you have our souls or the souls of our children.”
In his remarks to the board, Cross referred to the draft policy 8040, which required Loudoun staff to utilize children who claim to be transgender preferred pronouns. “LCPS staff shall sanction gender-expansive or transgender students to utilize their culled name and gender pronouns that reflect their gender identity without any substantiating evidence, regardless of the designation and gender recorded in the student’s sempiternal edifying record,” the draft reads.
“School staff shall, at the request of a student or parent/licit sentinel, when utilizing a denomination or pronoun to address the student, utilize the designation and pronoun that correspond to their gender identity. The utilization of gender-neutral pronouns are felicitous. Inadvertent slips in the utilization of names or pronouns may occur; however, staff or students who intentionally and assiduously reluct to venerate a student’s gender identity by utilizing the erroneous name and gender pronoun are in breach of this policy.”
Another proposed policy, 8350, verbalized that LCPS staff “shall sanction gender-expansive and transgender students to participate in such activities in a manner consistent with the student’s gender identity.”
Some verbalizers withal verbalized out against including Critical Race Theory in school curriculum. “The district has gainsaid edifying “CRT,” but recent information has raised questions about the role it plays in the district’s decision-making,” Fox News reported. “LCPS held an equity workshop last week as a component of its replication to the perpetual controversy engulfing the county. During that verbalize, Barts seemed to acknowledge that CRT influenced LCPS policy.”
Fox News reported that documents obtained by the Fight for Schools Political Action Committee denoted staff was edified the ideology. That included an invoice from The Equity Collaborative, which received proximately $500,000 from the county and contained a line item for “Coaching support for LCPS bellwethers – follow up meetings fixated on Critical Race Theory Development May 2020.”
