UK Teacher Fired for Posting Her Concern About LGBT Indoctrination in Christian School

A teacher in the United Kingdom has been fired for her stand against pro-LGBT teaching at her son’s primary school run by the Church of England. Kristy Higgs of Fairford, Gloucestershire posted on her personal Facebook page, according to the London Daily Mail, that the school was requiring “relationship education” be mandatory. In one example, she says the school had started using books about a boy who wears dresses.

She wrote, “Which means, for example, that children will be taught that all relationships are equally valid and ‘normal,’ so that same-sex marriage is exactly the same as traditional marriage, and that gender is a matter of choice, not biology, so that it’s up to them what sex they are.”

Girl Expelled for Fighting Boys Who Stormed Girls’ Bathroom

The school district said the incident took place April 4, a few days after a transgender male student posted a selfie from the boys restroom on Snapchat. That student was not directly involved in the later incident.

As a “form of protest,” a group of boys decided to go into the girls restroom to take a picture of their own. Only one boy in the group passed the door frame before a female student, who was exiting the restroom at the time, kicked him in the groin, according to the school district. The boys all left the area.

Pro-LGBT Group at Brigham Young University Wants to Secularize the School

Brigham Young University is known for a lot of things: a great football team, superior academics, but most of all, being the flagship school of the Mormon church (also known as The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints).

Yet today, BYU’s identity is being challenged. Not by political forces from Washington, but from within its own student body.

What began as an effort to reform the enforcement of BYU’s honor code has morphed into a movement that could end up opening bathrooms to the opposite biological sex, and would compromise the school’s unique and defining mission.

Equality Act is About Coercion

onservatives have traditionally been opposed to legislation prohibiting discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation. They have believed that market pressures, changing social views, and sub-federal legislation could adequately address problems of wrongful discrimination, while federal legislation would create potential harms to religious freedom. But the Equality Act now gaining steam in Congress goes considerably further than that, and deserves determined opposition.

At School, a Test of Wills over Privacy

Biological boys may be walking into the bathroom, but in some states — teenage girls are walking out. From Nebraska to Alaska, students are tired of fighting school leaders to feel safe. And if local districts won’t listen to their concerns, and parents won’t stand up to school officials, then maybe they’ll pay attention to the student protests.

The rebellion started in Omaha, when a girl was sick of administrators ignoring her about the discomfort a teenage boy was causing in the girls’ room. Calling it “humiliating,” the girls say it makes them feel vulnerable to undress and share personal space with a student of the opposite sex. Late last week, they decided to prove it. By 10:30 a.m., Abraham Lincoln students started streaming out of the building. “We want our privacy,” some chanted. “One over all is not fair.”
