(PresidentialWire.com)- According to a private Christian school guideline, kids who identify as gay or transgender must leave the institution.
According to the letter dated June 6 and obtained by NBC News, school administrator Barry McKeen of Grace Christian School in Valrico, Florida, reiterated a policy that requires any student who is engaging in “homosexuality, lesbianism, bisexuality, transgender identity/lifestyle, self-identification, bestiality, incest, fornication, adultery, and pornography” to leave the school. Bible scriptures support the policy in McKeen’s letter, which also instructs teachers to refer to students by their given names.
According to NBC News, the regulation also mandates that teachers use the term “biological gender” and acknowledge the “biological sex” of their kids.
McKeen’s letter, which NBC News obtained, stated that one’s biological sex must be affirmed and that no attempts should be made to change physically, alter, or disagree with one’s biological gender. This includes, but is not limited to, elective sex reassignment, transvestite, transgender, or non-binary gender fluid acts of conduct.
“Students shall be identified in school by the gender listed on their birth certificate and by name in the same way,” according to the school’s administration.
In a Facebook video, McKeen addressed the email breach and stated that he declined NBC News’ request for comment due to “what they were going to be trying to prove.”
According to McKeen in the video, the school has no intentions to alter the policy.
A student cannot intentionally enroll in our institution while transgender or homosexual, according to McKeen. “That has a biblical foundation. God has openly and vehemently spoken on those topics, and we have had these regulations in place at our institution since the very beginning, in the early 1970s. It’s nothing new. Furthermore, while it wasn’t mentioned in the report, Grace Christian is one of a vast number of Christian schools in the state of Florida. And this is a policy that practically all Christian schools have.
There is nothing on the school’s website regarding attendance, dress code, and body art standards.
