Profiles in Countermoonbattery: Tanner Cross

They say courage is contagious. Let’s all catch some from Tanner Cross, a phys ed teacher in Loudoun County, Virginia, where the schools have been subverted by leftist social engineers (see here, here, and here). He was suspended for proclaiming his Christian faith as he insisted on referring to students by their biologically correct pronouns.

Instead of issuing the conventional groveling apology, which would then be followed by his formal firing, Cross is fighting back with a lawsuit:

At a school board meeting on May 25, Byron Tanner Cross, a physical education teacher at Leesburg Elementary School, said he will not “affirm that a biological boy can be a girl and vice versa because it’s against my religion. It’s lying to a child. It’s abuse to a child, and it’s sinning against our God.”

The Alliance Defending Freedom (ADF) is representing Cross and said that two days after making his comments, Cross received a letter stating that he was being placed on administrative leave “pending an investigation of allegations that [he] engaged in conduct that had a disruptive impact on the operations of Leesburg Elementary School.”

The ADF pointed out that this suspension violates his First Amendment rights and requested that Cross be reinstated.

Accustomed to getting their way, leftist educrats refused. So it heads to court.

“I love all of my students, but I would never lie to them, regardless of the consequences,” [Cross] said. “I am a teacher, but I serve God first.”

Is it permissible to call a boy “him” and a girl “her” in contravention of liberal ideology, and even to profess Christian faith at a school board meeting? Or does that conduct have too much of a disruptive impact on progressive social engineering schemes? Stay tuned.

Watch the aptly named Cross get himself suspended.
