Bombshell: Christian Teacher Gets Fired From Her Job After Refusing To Hide Students’ Gender Transitions From Their Parents
A Christian teacher from a California school was fired from her job following her refusal to abide by the district’s policies which required her to deceive the parents about their kids’ gender transitions.
The Christian teacher, Jessica Tapia, who was working at the Jurupa Unified School District in California, told the school district that she cannot withhold information or lie to parents about the wellbeing of their children.
While talking with Fox News Digital, Tapia stated:
“Am I going to obey the district in the directive that are not lining up with … my own beliefs, convictions and faith? Or am I going to stay true …, choose my faith, choose to be obedient to … the way the Lord has called me to live. And so it was crazy to be in the position where I realized that I couldn’t be a Christian and a teacher.”
Tapia claimed that she was told by the school to refer to the students by their pronouns and conceal it from their parents.
The school also told Tapia to let transgender students enter locker rooms that directly coincide with their actual genders.
“I was very clear with them. If the student has male genitals, I’m not letting them in the female locker room.”
Tapia claimed that, as per the school district policies, the students have privacy rights and they can even hide information from their parents.
“If a student shares information regarding a pronoun preference or thinking they’re maybe the opposite gender of what they biologically are, if they share that information with a teacher, we are supposed to keep that info from parents in case the parent doesn’t know.”
Tapia also highlighted the numerous issues regarding the school’s gender policy.
“We’re talking [about] 12-, 13-, 14-, 15-year-olds. I don’t believe [kids] should have this ‘privacy’ to where their parents are being left in the dark about very pertinent information about their wellbeing.”
Tapis was informed about the dismissal from her job through a letter which was signed by Daniel Brooks, the assistant superintendent of human resources.
The letter stated:
“Based on your religious beliefs, you cannot be dishonest with parents … If asked about a student’s gender identity by a parent, you cannot refer the parent to a counselor, defer the inquiry and suggest they speak with a student …, or otherwise deflect the parent’s inquiry.”
The letter added:
“The district cannot accommodate your religious beliefs that … prohibit you from maintaining a student’s gender identity and refraining from disclosing a student’s gender identity from his/her/their parent(s)/guardians.”
Tapia also revealed that she chose teaching as a profession to “make an impact” and to be “a light to [kids] possibly coming from very rough homes like I did when I was a child.”
“I don’t believe … that that’s how God’s calling us to love, by affirming those lies and confusion. I believe firmly that God created man and woman, and you are who he made you to be. And when someone has confusion about that, I believe that’s lies and confusion from the devil.”
The school district is denying Tapia’s claims that she was discriminated against because of her religious beliefs.
However, Tapia informed Fox News Digital that she will be taking legal action against the school district.
