This policy proposal by the VA DOE is clearly a violation of religious liberty as it offers no protection to students who cannot refer to others with pronouns that differ from others’ pronounced sex at birth due to faith based convictions.
The government is over stepping its bounds and assuming responsibility over minors that is reserved for parents, who themselves should teach principles and indoctrinate their children, and hopefully in ways that are in accordance with God’s Word.
This proposal is a war on the U.S Constitution and Bill Of Rights, but ultimately on the Lord Jesus Christ, who is God over all. His Word and incarnation provide us with the philosophical basis needed for a coherent understanding of human rights, sexual identity, law, etc. What philosophical basis does a secular state have for such fundamental categories? A secular state has none. We need God fearing people in office who will legislate and utilize State and Federal constitutional and governing frameworks to the glory of God, not to commit high treason against Him the way this policy does.
