School Board Member Confesses That Her Husband Helped Pay to Bring Christian Abstinence Speaker to School

Quick recap of the amazing story: Christian speaker (and Liberty University graduate) Pam Stenzel was invited to speak at George Washington High School in West Virginia. Student Katelyn Campbell told the media about this how it was not-at-all an optional assembly. In response, her principal, George Aulenbacher, threatened to tell Wellesley College (Katelyn’s future school) about how she was a “backstabber.” Katelyn told that to the media, too. Wellesley responded with open arms for Katelyn.

Okay. So what’s happened since then?

Christian Professor Compares LGBT Allies to Racists and Calls Trans Identity a ‘Perversion’

Biola University, an evangelical Christian school in southern California, is also home to a secretive LGBT group. It’s brave of those students since the school would expel them if their sexual orientations were ever made public.

Still, the Biola Queer Underground is thriving and they’re now going after a professor who made some horrible remarks at the school.

Dr. Erik Thoennes — Biola’s “Professor of the Year” in 2003 and 2007 — sat on a panel called “Sexuality Matters” (a panel formed in response to the BQU group) and proceeded to:

1) Compare LGBTQ identities to racist identities.

2) Responded to the question of why there weren’t any Christian pro-gay representatives on the panel by saying, “I wouldn’t want a pro-racist person on this panel if the question were racism.”

3) Called the transgender identity a “dysfunction” and “perversion.”

Seriously, listen to the 1:42 mark of this video:

Jesus Christ Will Save You: A Message That Doesn’t Belong in a Public High School Assembly

Members of Mississippi’s Pinelake Baptist Church recently shared the message of finding hope in Jesus Christ. They even played a video to really bring home that message:

In the video, two young men were interviewed who had once led “troubled” lives. To find hope, the men described various behaviors such as turning to drugs, sex, cutting, suicide, and the like. They then explained how turning to Jesus Christ solved their problems and recommended that other people turn to Jesus Christ as well.

Sounds perfectly normal for a church gathering.

The problem is that the gathering took place at Northwest Rankin High School, a public school.

During the school day.

And the principal even made it clear all seniors had to attend the assembly.

Even when students tried to leave the Performing Arts Building so they wouldn’t have to listen to the preaching, “faculty stood near the exit door, preventing students from leaving.”

It’s about as unconstitutional as you can get.
