Faith-Based Schools Win Big Victory, But Transgender Fight Rages On

(Charisma News archives)
The Biden administration is attempting to force schools to accept its new definition of "sex" or lose federal funding, but in the midst of that battle, one faith-based school has just won an important legal victory.

The new definition of "sex" involves Title IX and "sex-based discrimination." The Biden administration wants all schools that receive federal aid to provide open access to bathrooms, locker rooms and sports, based on students' self-perceived gender identity.

Schools that don't agree with this new LGBT policy could lose funding for kids' school lunches. That's why one Christian school in Tampa, Florida took the administration to court over the new definition, and it resulted in new guidance being issued from the USDA.

Under Title IX, participating schools agree not to discriminate based on sex. Grant Park Christian Academy, which serves low-income, minority families, fully complies with that requirement. But because of the school's religious beliefs, it could not comply with the new transgender aspect of the mandate.

On the school's behalf, Alliance Defending Freedom (ADF) filed a federal lawsuit against the Biden administration and the state's commissioner of agriculture and consumer services, Nikki Fried, who administers the National School Lunch Program in Florida.

Due to the ADF's lawsuit, the Biden administration and Fried approved the academy's application for funding to continue serving free meals to the school's students.
