You are a 14-year-old honor student in your German high school class.
Through circumstances beyond your control the class discussion turns to the issue of religion and homosexuality.
You are a gospel and Bible-believing Christian, and during the course of the discussion you state your view that homosexuality is wrong.
As a result of your statement you receive a three-day suspension. Because you are intolerant.
This is exactly what happened at Western Hills High School in Texas. Student Dakota Ary was suspended for stating his view on a subject that perhaps should not even have been discussed in a German class.
He faced the possibility of missing lectures, tests, and a football game.
What would you do?
His family reached out to the Liberty Counsel for legal representation, and after a meeting with the lawyer, the school district rescinded the suspension. The school had no comment when contacted by the Christian Post.
This story paints a disturbing picture in our schools. We know that our colleges are infiltrated by anti-Christian, anti-American, atheistic faculty, but now it appears that our high schools are following suit.
The Liberty Counsel said that they are seeing this happening across the country, as the progressives pushing the gay agenda are becoming increasingly intolerant toward people who do not agree with their lifestyle.
The very people who preach tolerance are the most intolerant when it comes to differences based on morality, or when the name of Jesus is mentioned. They are perfectly okay with mentioning “god.” No one is upset with a generic “god.” But watch out if you bring to the table Jesus Christ, the God of the Bible…
Delight in Truth has previously pointed out that with respect to homosexuality and gay marriage the battle in society has been lost, but Christians must continue to be a voice for the truth. We must also continue to stand up for our constitutional rights to practice our faith, and hold to our opinions which are grounded in the Bible.
This is how can continue to shine a light in dark world.
