How can you protect your child or grandchild from being forced to undress in front of a gender-confused student—especially one (or more) of the opposite sex?
“Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened.” Romans 1:21
Attorney and NCLL President David C. Gibbs III, recently spoke out on national television about the legal recourse afforded Christians through our Constitutional rights. For more than 200 years, basic decency and our right to religious accommodations (under the Free Exercise Clause in the First Amendment) have been historically supported by a body of civil rights legislation and court cases. However, a raft of lawsuits threatening our fundamental right to simple modesty continue winding their way through the courts—including several recent federal rulings against students.
“Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools, And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things.” Romans 1:22-23
In 2010 the U.S. Department of Education “found” so-called “transgender rights” in Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972. The D.O.E. redefined “sex” to include “gender identity” in its guidance to schools. The federal government directed schools to “treat transgender, or gender non-conforming, consistent with their gender identity in all aspects of the planning, implementation, enrollment, operation, and evaluation of single-sex classes.” This order was used as the basis for encroaching on the privacy of students in locker rooms and restrooms—all to advance delusional transgender ideology.
“Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves: Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.” Romans 1:24-25
While that directive was rescinded in February 2017, numerous lawsuits in the wake of the guidance are still working their way through the courts. The NCLL will continue posting updates on pending cases, including Indiana and Virginia.
In the meantime, please continue to pray for the protection of students and for favorable outcomes in our justice system.
