Weak-willed church allowed transgender bill, says Christian educator
A just-signed California law allows transgender students to access whatever restroom or locker room they want.
The head of a Christian educators' organization says it's now time for Christians to speak out.
Finn Laursen, executive director of Christian Educators Association International, suggests the new law should be a “wake-up call” for the body of Christ. He says Christians should “let speak logic, let speak wisdom, and let speak biblical worldview into our culture.”
The law has sparked outrage among conservatives because the bill allows male students in public schools who say they are transgender to use female restrooms, participate in female sports and even shower with girls.
Christian teachers are being put in the tough position of having to embrace a law that runs counter to their Christian convictions, Laursen says.
“You need to speak up and speak the biblical worldview, not in an abusive way,” says Laursen. “They’re ambassadors of Christ so need to show love, compassion and grace. But they don’t need to bow, or curtsy if you will, to an absurd and obscene law.”
Laursen believes weakness among Christians is allowing non-Christians to be the decision-makers. He says, in view of this new law, that's got to change.source
