A left-wing “progressive” school in Washington D.C. has decided to cancel sports events with a rival school saying they feel “unsafe” because the rival school is a Christian school.
An email was recently sent by Sheridan School, a ritzy private K-8 school in D.C. The email was sent out by school chief Jessica Donovan to explain why Sheridan would no longer participate in regional sporting events with D.C.’s Immanuel Christian School.
The hate-filled Donovan explained that the Christian school made kids feel “unsafe” because the Christian school observes the traditional Christian ideas about homosexuality.
According to The American Conservative, Donovan explained:
Since the majority of students wanted to play, we were initially planning to go to [Immanuel Christian School] with the student-athletes wearing a statement of support (such as rainbow socks or warm-up jerseys). As we talked more, we understood that some students did not feel safe entering a school that bans LGBTQ parents, students or even families that support LGBTQ rights. Forcing our children to choose between an environment in which they feel unsafe or staying home was not an option. So we decided that we would invite ICS to play all of the games at Sheridan. Since ICS declined our offer to host, we will only play our home games and will not go to ICS to play.
Even worse, this ignorant, hateful woman intended to viciously attack the children of Immanuel school by picketing them with LGBTQ signs, chants, and attacks when the kids come to play at Sheridan.
Of course, this “unsafe” garbage is just that, garbage.
No one would be “unsafe” gong to play basketball at a Christian school.
If you claim to feel “unsafe” around Christians, or MAGA hats, or whites, or Republicans, you are either a very stupid person prone to wild fantasies and clinical paranoia, or you are a lying liberal attempting to push an un-American agenda.
There are no other choices.
Sadly, this is starting to happen on a wider margin that just one, left-wing, un-American school in D.C.
As The Federalist reports:
This is disrespect, hostility, and religious bigotry masquerading under the opposite banner. It is also not an isolated incident. The athletic accreditation bodies for both college and K-12 schools have begun to indicate to Christian schools they’d better abandon their faith or lose their ability to play sports with other institutions.
The NCAA is subject to an internal and external pressure campaign over this issue. States across the nation have begun to threaten Christian schools’ participation in athletic conferences, particularly over transgender athletes.
This is just one more area where liberals are launching a full-frontal assault on American society in an effort to destroy this country and rebuild it in an anti-American, far left model.
