You’re not having a nightmare. You’re living in a nightmare. Reality has been replaced with a dark, surreal, obscene, and in some cases demonic dream from which you can’t shake yourself awake. If you were skeptical that the warnings about decades-long post-modernist ideology should be taken seriously and just something that an overexcited psychology professor from Canada is getting too worked up about, then consider this sick story out of Florida:
Most parents would assume that refusing to look at a naked child of the opposite sex goes without saying for any teacher, but a school district in Florida has opted to punish a male physical education teacher for attempting to avoid that situation.…
Liberty Counsel is representing gym teachers Robert Oppedisano and Stephanie Christensen at Chasco Middle School (CMS). According to the nonprofit law firm’s letter to the Pasco County school board, the dispute stems from administrators’ decision to allow a female CMS student who “identifies” as a boy to use male restrooms and locker rooms. The district also wants the girl’s “identity” affirmed with male pronouns.…
“I told them I have an issue with it,” Christensen told the Tampa Bay Times last month. “Part of my concern is, if students are allowed to do this, the other kids and their parents have a right to know. It’s their privacy, too.”
“Robert will not knowingly place himself in a position to observe a minor female in the nude or otherwise in a state of undress,” Liberty Counsel writes. “Now, Robert has been told by administrators that he will be transferred to another school as discipline for ‘not doing your job in the locker room.’” The administration also claimed the girl has “every right to use” the boys’ locker room.
I’m not entirely sure why parents haven’t surrounded this school with pitchforks and torches demanding the removal of the administrators of the institution for the perversion of children and the forced perversion of faculty. Oh, wait … perhaps it’s because some parents actually have no moral compass, have bought into the evil claptrap, and/or are abysmally stupid … and the others who are perturbed have simply given up and don’t want to make waves, because, you know, they’re awfully busy and there might be something on TV.
Many years ago a very good and great man warned America:
“You and I have a rendezvous with destiny. We will preserve for our children this, the last best hope of man on earth, or we will sentence them to take the first step into a thousand years of darkness. If we fail, at least let our children and our children’s children say of us we justified our brief moment here. We did all that could be done.”― Ronald Reagan, A Time for Choosing: The Speeches of Ronald Reagan, 1961-1982
What are we doing to our children? What are we doing to our world?
