Praying Coach Suspended for Exercising His Civil Rights
 
Praying Coach Suspended for Exercising His Civil Rights
Written By Laurie Higgins   |   10.30.15

Bremerton High School in Washington state just suspended beloved football coach Joe Kennedy for praying on the football field after games, while gender-dysphoric, cross-dressing teachers like “Karen” Topham at Lake Forest High School in Lake Forest, Illinois or “Dane” Fox at Glenbrook North High School in Northbrook, Illinois get to keep their jobs.

So in public schools today, the voluntary post-game prayers of a Christian coach are wholly unacceptable, while the cross-dressing and cross-sex hormone-doping of gender-rejecting teachers is acceptable.

It’s even more outrageous, though. Public school faculty members and administrators actually expect students to lie. They expect them to refer to these gender-rejecting teachers by opposite-sex pronouns, something theologian John Piper has said Christians must not do.

Who would have thought we would come to a day when teachers, who are government employees and who used to be role models, would encourage students to reject God’s created order, reject reality, reject truth, and participate in deception?
