I Prayed have prayed
Father, we thank You for sparing Christian schools from Biden's Title IX changes. Continue to oppose the evil transgender ideology, Lord.

Following a lawsuit from Grant Park Christian Academy last month, Biden has exempted religious schools from his changes to Title IX.

From The Hill. USDA in May announced it would be broadening its definition of sex-based discrimination to include sexual orientation and gender identity, and said schools and other qualifying organizations would need to update their nondiscrimination policies accordingly to receive funding from the Food and Nutrition Service (FNS), including for the National School Lunch Program (NSLP)….

But in a document dated Aug. 12, USDA clarified that it does not require religious schools to submit written requests for a Title IX exemption in order to claim one.

There are several exceptions to Title IX – the federal law that prohibits sex-based discrimination – the department said, including one permitting an institution to be exempt “if there is a conflict between Title IX and a school’s governing religious tenets.”

Earlier this month, the Biden administration said it would grant such an exemption to Grant Park Christian Academy in Tampa, Fla., a private school of 56 pre-K through eighth-grade students from low-income families….

In a statement on Friday, Erica Steinmiller-Perdomo, legal counsel at the Alliance Defending Freedom (ADF), which had been representing Grant Park Christian Academy, said the administration was “rightly honoring” the beliefs of other religious schools across the nation.

“While it shouldn’t have taken a federal lawsuit, at least now, all religious schools like Grant Park Christian Academy who rely on the USDA’s funding to serve nutritious meals to kids in need can continue this vital service in their communities,” she said….

I love this. I hope this trends enough to get people to wake up and realize that we do not want a generation of confused kids. Let’s keep it simple. God created us all equally with in his image and he is a perfect God who does not make mistakes. There for we all know that Transgender ideology and gender confusion is not of God but a fabricated lie from the devil. #TheDevilIsALiar he will steal and wreck everything in your life if your not careful. He has that exact goal since Adam and Eve. Just something to think about before you go searching for woke cookies y’all.
