Sixteen-year-old Josh Alexander of Ontario learned this the hard way last November when he was suspended from St. Joseph's Catholic High School for stating during a classroom discussion that there are only two genders, which is a scientific fact.
"I got suspended for comments made during a class discussion," Alexander told the media. "It was about male students using female washrooms, gender dysphoria and male breastfeeding. Everyone was sharing their opinions on it; any student who wanted to was participating, including the teacher."
"I said there were only two genders and you were born either a male or a female and that got me into trouble. And then I said that gender doesn't trump biology."
Alexander made it clear during the classroom discussion that he believes as he does due to his Christian faith. One would think that especially at a Catholic school, freedom of religion would be honored – but not in Alexander's case.
In order to continue attending classes following the discussion, Alexander was told that he must agree not to "dead name" his so-called transgender classmates – this means referring to them not by their actual names but rather by their made-up fake gender names – and to no longer attend any classes with said trans classmates.
"I walked into one of my classes, I sat down and everyone looked pretty surprised to see me there," Alexander said about his return to the school, which was met with hostility and a call to the police. "Within two minutes, the vice-principal was in the classroom asking me to leave."
"I think I used to be seen as a Christian kid following my beliefs, but now apparently I'm the rebel. The school knows I'm not trying to be a problematic kid. The police know that as well. They didn't even put me in cuffs when they arrested me. They know that I wasn't actually a threat to anybody."
The fact that this is all taking place at a Catholic school, which should be a safe haven for Christians and their Christian beliefs, is nothing short of shocking. It just goes to show that the trans cult's ideologies are invading every institution, even those that should be bastions of truth.
Meanwhile, a teacher at another Catholic school in Ontario, St. Anne's Elementary School on Toronto, openly showed off a "prayer table" featuring a "rainbow" LGBT Pride flag and depictions of Jesus Christ as a half-man, half-human transgender – perhaps the ultimate form of blasphemy.
When someone on Twitter by the handle @ChanLPfa called out Severn Avenue Public School in Ottawa for plastering a classroom with a "giant sexual orientation & gender identity flag," a Mr. De Buono who teaches at St. Anne's Elementary School responded with:
"Because, @ChanLPfa, Ss should see themselves reflected, & because we need to dismantle systemic homophobia & transphobia, in our schools & classrooms.
That's why my prayer table in a Catholic school in Toronto includes at times a Pride flag & inclusive images of Jesus & Mary."
De Buono has a history of controversy at his school, having previously ordered a local priest to obey certain "woke" rules when entering his classroom.
"When you visit my classroom, you are not permitted to make comments that marriage is only for a male-female couple, that there are only two genders, and that only males can be priests," De Buono said, adding that "you are not permitted to make negative comments about the Pride images or the non-cisgender image of Jesus."
