Franklin Graham Voices Concern Over School District’s Plan to Teach Gender Fluidity

In the shadow of our nation’s capital, Fairfax County Public Schools in Virginia is preparing to teach gender identity in its classrooms, including lessons on gender fluidity and spectrum—the idea that no child is truly 100 percent boy or girl. The news has parents irate as no alternative options will be offered to take in place of these required classes in grades 7 to 12.

Shortly after posted the story, Franklin Graham called out this idea on his Facebook page:

“Teaching them that there is no difference between boys and girls is nothing more than a lie,” Franklin Graham said. “We are different because God made us different. School districts should not allow this poison anywhere near the classroom!”

Graham said the situation in Virginia reinforces the need for Christians to be involved in all areas of politics, especially the local level.

“This is a great example of why Christians should be involved in politics at all levels in our communities, cities, and nation,” he continued. “Christians upholding biblical principles on school boards could help put a stop to outrageous initiatives like this.”

Franklin Graham has announced a 50-state tour in 2016, called the Decision America Tour, where he will be traveling the country to preach the Gospel and encourage believers to live out their faith and make a difference in their communities by running for office at the local, state and federal level—stressing the importance of school board and city council positions.

“Let’s fight back by getting the names of Christians on the ballots and working to make a difference for the future of our nation,” he said. “For the sake of our children and grandchildren.”

    2 Timothy 1:7 states God did not give me a spirit of fear, but of power, love, and a sound mind. As Christians we must stand united to defeat this “Goliath”. Thank you for challenging Christians to STAND ON HIS WORD AND DO SOMETHING…I shall try in Christ’s name. School board possibly?

  4. Diane Stoural says:

    The Pandora’s box has truly been opened, God help us, is a true cry for Spiritual awakening in our nation. As I see and here of other countries coming to Jesus in droves as we drift further away. God is going out into the streets to find those who will come to the feast. Wake up oh great nation of ours.

  6. Rick Clark says:

    As America is being shaken, it will also be awakened. In an awakening, the gospel needs to be preached, not only in the pulpits, but by every believer who will respond to the Great Commission. Let’s train them and raise up an army to bring in the final harvest throughout every State.

    This is a wonderful thing! God says that “if MY people..” etc – the Christians in this country who already know the right thing to do, will come together and stand up for our Christian principles, morals and God’s Word, then we CAN make a difference. God richly bless you in this endeavor!.
