The Charlottesville Daily Progress frequently refuses to print valid rebuttals to published items. The Schilling Show will make space available for such refutations and factual corrections of error, whenever possible:
Unpublished rebuttal letter, submitted to the Daily Progress by Gregory Lynne on October 2, 2020:
Katherine Knott’s article (10/02/20) on the NewState religion being forcibly-taught as ‘educational dogma’ is both unConstitutional and an egregious violation of many Christians’ Bill of Rights!
Where is the ‘opt-out’ for Christian parents/their children?
“Sexual orientation and gender identity are not controversial anymore and they’re not sexual,” she (Board Chairwoman, McKeever) said.
The “lived experiences” of children, adults, and animals are varied. “No”: As Christians we don’t need to validate each/every choice that is made against God’s laws and teachings.
The proponents of this debauchery have the nerve/unmitigated gall to appeal to: “…We must also acknowledge how systems of oppression and power affect all portions of ourselves and our community” while they (simultaneously-with-unabashed-self-approbation) oppress, bludgeon and force their perversions upon young, innocent minds and souls!
In a regimented, liberal mentality: “We want to create bases that are welcoming, affirming and supporting of our students…” (Yet) They are not the least bit concerned with controverting/countermanding parentally-taught, Christian teachings regarding family, sexuality, and respect for Divine authority!
“Equity”—according to the proponents’ NewState (Orwellian doublespeak) definitions—is of a higher-social-order than (any) Divinely-revealed Godspeak. The ‘unity’ among followers of Christ Jesus’ Gospel is neglected, negated, disregarded, degraded, and hereby deplatformed.
Let that sink in loud-and-clear.
(Adults who have not ‘joined the crowd’ are next-addressed.)
Knott writes “Some community members…[have the audacity to suggest]…that the division offer training sessions for parents about how to talk about gender identity and sexual orientation with their children…!” So, now: Public schools will ‘educate’ not only our children but also ‘we-the-taxpaying-parents’ too!
Insecure in their revolutionary and landmark changes, ‘officials’ fall-back upon State legislators to ‘approve’ their revolutionary actions to give them the (safe) coerced mark of “officialdom” legalese:
A new state law will give school divisions more guidance about how to support transgender and non-binary students, Cheuk said…the Virginia Department of Education will issue that guidance by the end of the year.
Yes: Indeed Virginia! The (new) Dogma lives loudly within thy reins of power!
