below is an article in a recent CWA newsletter. Have fun!

I suggest you brace yourself as we enter the theater of the absurd.
Dateline: McIntosh County, Georgia. A seven-year-old girl is causing quite a stir at her public school by demanding she be allowed to use the boys’ restroom. Why, you ask? Well, according to her father Tommy Theollyn, the now-second grader told him when she was just 18 months old that she was in fact a boy.
So when school officials made his daughter use the girls’ restroom, Mr. Theollyn took her out of school. He wrote in a petition that "Forcing [his "transgender" daughter] to use a bathroom that does not match [her] presentation effectively discloses [her] status as a transgender child and thus endangers [her]."
One small detailed buried in the many reports of the story is that the "father" is, in fact, her mother! She actually gave birth to this little one before she became transgender herself.
You cannot make this stuff up. Enter ("stage right") the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) of Georgia, of course, which is very concerned about this situation and has promptly sent a letter of intimidation to the county. It reads:
[F]ederal law requires that every public school student have access to a free and appropriate public education. The McIntosh County School System's recent decision regarding restroom access consistent with a student's gender identity appears to conflict with these expectations.Unbelievable! There are, of course, no laws that would even hint at requiring a school to accommodate this child’s gender confusion. The ACLU is notorious for intimidating schools into doing what the law never requires when it comes to their leftist agenda. We have seen it for years, for example, with religious liberty.
In fact, there might be another part of the law that could apply here. There was a time when what this mother has done to this innocent child would be called child abuse or neglect. Her daughter told her she was transgender at 18 months? Come on! Have we lost all common sense!
When I ask my daughter how many apples are on the table and she counts, "one, two, five, ten," it is my duty as a father to correct her and show her how to count to four. I would be in fact harming her if I let her think there are ten apples on the table.
But the amazing thing is that my daughter is three. I also have an 18-month-old baby boy, and he can barely speak! He can't even understand that he is not supposed to throw his food on the floor. And this parent wants us to believe her daughter knew she was transgender at 18 months. My son doesn't even know he's a human for crying out loud!
Is it not more probable that this mother, considering herself a transsexual, actually encouraged her daughter to identify herself this way? Is that too hard to imagine? My daughter wants to be like her mom. She puts on her dresses and walks around in her shoes. She wants to be "just as pretty as mommy."
But they tell us there are no consequences to children with all this, remember? All children need is love and it doesn't matter if they grow up with a mother and a father, or with two mommies, two daddies, or with a mommy that becomes a daddy, or anything else they can come up with.
Woe to those who call evil good and good evil;
Who put darkness for light and light for darkness;
Who put bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter!
We can not stand silent while this type of incident continues. We must be that light that exposes the darkness. And we must be willing to pay the price.
May we never lose the will to fight for God's truth.
