Transgender madness is sweeping our schools

Parents, protect your children
Aug. 26, 2016

There are many pressing issues that have come to the forefront over the last two decades as the new post-Christian consensus crowds into spaces once dominated by those who took Judeo-Christian values for granted. “The illusion of a Christian majority is now gone,” Russell Moore of the Southern Baptist Convention noted, “and churches are going to have to articulate things they used to assume.”

This is going to be more difficult than it sounds. The first and most important challenge is for parents, who must devise ways of ensuring that they pass their beliefs and values on to their children. Gone are the days when the culture’s residual reliance on Judeo-Christian assumptions could reinforce what was heard in church and at home. Gone, in fact, are thousands of the churches. Instead, parents are faced with the task of teaching their children beliefs and values that run counter to virtually every cultural influence faced by children today: Hollywood films, the music industry, television shows, the state school system, and in many cases, even the government promote values that run directly contrary to the Christian worldview.

What is more dangerous still is the fact that the state is making an active attempt to stand between parents and children, utilizing the public school system not simply to teach, but to pass on a new set of values, values rooted not in Christian tradition but in the Sexual Revolution. That is why battles over sex education in Ontario, much to the confusion of the enlightened cosmopolitans in the chattering classes, provoked such a heated confrontation between the government and communities of traditionalists of all faiths: because each side was claiming the right to pass on values to the children. The state is insisting that their educational arm should teach children about sexuality, from their own perspective, with no right to “opt out.” Parents recognize that they are fighting for the religious and cultural identity of their children, and are insisting that the state stay out.

The state has no intention of doing so, of course. One particularly stark example is a letter published by Alberta’s Education Minister on August 16, titled “An open letter to Alberta’s students,” which was then posted to Facebook:
