Christian Schools Must Be Ready to Stand Firm as Threats to Religious Liberty Increase

I don’t know about you, but I am a little nervous about the state of our country, especially since we’ve, once again, put the safety of all our children at risk to placate powerful anti-liberty special interests.
In recent weeks we’ve seen the Department of Education (DOE) threaten to withdraw Title IX funding from numerous public school districts if they did not open their school restrooms and locker rooms to members of the opposite sex in violation of student privacy and safety. And, in a game of political chicken, the DOE continues to aggressively push to get what it wants—complete submission.
Although this push is happening primarily in public schools, who’s to say Christian schools won’t be next? We’ve already seen the backlash on Catholic schools for requiring their staff to follow the tenets of the Catholic faith.
That is why Christian school officials and leaders must be ready to take a stand when their schools are threatened and required to comply.
