“You have to call him Jessica.” Those were the instructions given to a public
school teacher who was being observed for sensitivity training. For the next
four hours she would be observed at how she treated this particular student. The
dilemma was that “Jessica” was a seven-year-old boy. Several weeks earlier he
made the decision to wear dresses to school and demanded to be called by a
girl’s name. He parents supported his decision—as did the new politically
correct school system. So for the next four hours this public school teacher was
required to refer to this little boy with female pronouns, call him “Jessica”,
and not make any negative comments about this boy wearing a dress and plastic
The Christian teacher who was describing these first-hand events, shared with
me that this was the straw that finally broke the camel’s back. She decided she
could no longer perform work under those conditions and perform the duties that
were required. She recognized that much of her job was no longer about educating
children with the three r’s. Over the last few years she had watched her job
transform into indoctrinating children with a very immoral/ungodly
She was a sweet Christian lady who loved educating children. But with each
successive year she found herself compromising more and more. She referenced
evolution and humanism in the textbooks and discussed how she would try skipping sections of the textbooks or make clarifications to the class. She mentioned that every year they added more and more material promoting homosexuality under the guise of “tolerance.” She said she visibly cringed when she had to teach an entire section on Islam in their history book. But this latest “sensitivity training” was too much—and this teacher decided she could no longer teach in good conscience. Consider what this Christian teacher was asked to do as you read the following Scriptures:
“A woman shall not wear anything that pertains to a man,
nor shall a man put on a woman’s garment, for all who do so are an
abomination to the Lord your God” (Deuteronomy 22:5).
Or do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived; neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor homosexuals, nor thieves, nor the
covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers, will inherit the kingdom of God” (1 Corinthians 6:9-10, NASB).
As you consider what she experienced I hope you will ask yourself a few
- What would it take to get you to “act” at your workplace?
- How much more immorality will be added to the classroom?
- What will it take for Christian parents to soberly consider the environment
they are placing their children in each and every day?
- How can we expect our young men to be leaders in the home (and future
elders) if they are being encouraged to be feminine?
- And again, what will it take for you to “act”?
