Physical education teacher Byron Tanner Cross’ unwavering words during a school board meeting May 25th in Loudoun County, Virginia, earned him a temporary suspension from his job at Leesburg Elementary School and garnered him national attention.
“I’m a teacher, but I serve God first,” Cross told board members, “and I will not affirm that a biological boy can be a girl and vice versa because it’s against my religion. It’s lying to a child; it’s child abuse; and it is sinning against our God.”
This case exemplifies the larger cultural battle playing out in schools, boardrooms, colleges and even churches over the most fundamental of human distinctions: male and female. (Taken from decision Magazine July/August 2021 subscription)
Dear church we must pray for teachers like Mr. Cross who stand up for the Lord, our children and the insanity of using secular ideology over clear biology. May we also use the influence we have in our areas of influence to serve the Lord faithfully and rescue our young souls that are perishing under an anti-biblical agenda that is destroying the family unit and fiber of our nation. I want to personally thank you GHBC for voting for the approval of a Christian home school group to meet in our church every Tuesday to give families in our community another option than our secular public school system.
