Virginia Teacher Fired for Keeping Religious Faith over Transgender Title Reference
Patriot Chronicles reports:
Peter Vlaming, a Virginia French teacher, finds himself in the middle of a politically correct battle with the Virginia school system. Vlaming's job was ripped out from under him after a split second decision to call a trans student 'her'.
The student was reportedly about to walk into a wall when the teacher instinctively said 'stop her'. And so his ridiculous fight to keep his job began.
That's it& 'stop her', and a man's livelihood is under fire. His religious beliefs- disregarded.
According to Virginia Times, the high school in West Point, a town in King William County about an hour east of Richmond, has about 265 students.
Vlaming, 47, who had taught at the school for almost seven years after spending more than a decade in France, told his superiors his Christian faith prevented him from using male pronouns for a student he saw as female.
The student's family informed the school system of the transition over the summer. Vlaming said he had the student in class the year before when the student identified as female.
Vlaming agreed to use the student's new, male name. But he tried to avoid using any pronouns - he or him, and she or her - when referring to the student. The student said that made him feel uncomfortable and singled out.
Administrators sided with the boy, telling Vlaming he could not treat his transgender pupil differently than he treats others......(see Link)
