A lie to deceive parents

The front door of the Belfast Trans Resource Centre

Transgender guidance scrapped for NI primary schools”

So ran the recent headline on the BBC Northern Ireland news webpage. It may appear to be a welcome decision by the Council for the Curriculum, Examinations and Assessment (CCEA). However, it is no such thing.

The thinking behind this decision is out of the same pit that brought about the decision to include the vile notion in the curriculum in the first place.

The report states: “In a statement to BBC News NI, CCEA said that the content ‘was removed as it referenced research which is over 10 years old’.”

The basis of this new notion is ‘new research’ by the same ‘ejits’ who came up with the notion that has now been set aside but not utterly repudiated!

The Holy Scriptures alone are the moral authority for all mankind.

The Shorter Catechism in Question 2 asks: ‘What rule hath God given to direct us how we may glorify and enjoy him?’

The answer given is the orthodox and correct view. ‘The Word of God, which is contained in the Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments, is the only rule to direct us how we may glorify and enjoy him.’

The decision by the CCEA is not a rethinking and rejecting of the perverted notion it originally espoused but a mere tactic in response to objections by many parents to what was first proposed as part of the teaching of recent ‘Relationship and Sex Education’ (RSE) resources . The previous guidance for primary schools stated that it aimed to support “transgender or gender-questioning children”.

The BBC headline is in fact a deceit. There has been no ‘scrapping’ of the transgender thinking on the part of the CCEA.

Such ‘questioning’ by pupils is born of the promptings of depraved organisations which seek to move society toward that which brought down God’s wrath upon Sodom and Gomorrah!

In response to the slight stepping back by the CCEA, Alexa Moore who is from the Rainbow Project charity which supports LGBTQ+ people living in Northern Ireland said about the change to the transgender guidance: “It’s clear that this change is being made on a technicality, rather than an explicit change of policy. Whatever the guidance says, we know that trans people explore their identity and come out across a wide range of ages, and they deserve support regardless of that age.”

I trust parents in state schools will note her comments. “This change is being made on a technicality, rather than an explicit change of policy.” It is a deceit and trick on the part of the CCEA to deceive protesting parents into thinking that there has been a radical change and rejection of the ungodly notion regarding ‘gender confusion’ amongst children.

Christian parents who send their children to state schools will doubtless grasp with two hands this deceitful statement by the CCEA. They will claim that the state school classroom is safe for their children. In truth they can not really care much for their children’s eternal welfare if they accept this statement as a basis for continuing to expose their children to the perversion that is still to be taught in the schools under government control.

It is not just ‘transgenderism’ that is found promoted in the classroom but atheistic evolution, blasphemous and immoral literature texts, anti-Bible sentiments and pro-abortion teaching.

All this is widely known by professing Christian parents who persist in sending their children to the state system. In truth, many of these so-call Christian parents are mere ‘professing Christians’ and do not walk in the fear of God or seek to obey His Word! They are like those of Sardis, they have a “name‭ that thou livest, and art dead‬,” Revelation 3:1‭.‬

Recently, a law was passed in the USA that requires Louisiana public school classrooms to display the Ten Commandments.

How far removed from that is the state school classrooms of Northern Ireland schools. Rather there, any number of the devil’s commands and lies are the rules that are followed.
