A California teacher, who lost her job after refusing to comply with a
California district's gender policies, citing Christian beliefs, is
blowing the whistle on the expectations she felt as a teacher to not
only hide students' gender transitions from parents, but also to keep
them in the dark through lying.
"I knew immediately, like in my gut, in my heart, in my soul, that
there was a decision I had to make because, you know, these two things
were totally butting heads," Jessica Tapias, who worked at the Jurupa
Unified School District, told Fox News Digital. "I essentially had to
pick one. Am I going to obey the district in the directive that are not
lining up with… my own beliefs, convictions and faith? Or am I going to
stay true…, choose my faith, choose to be obedient to… the way the Lord
has called me to live. And so it was crazy to be in the position where
I realized that I couldn't be a Christian and a teacher."
In a notice under Superintendent Trenton Hansen's letterhead, reviewed
by Fox News Digital, the district said they couldn't accommodate
Tapias' Christian beliefs which prohibited her from withholding
information on gender transitions from kids' parents.
"Consequentially, the District will release you from your employment
effective at the end of the day on January 31, 2023," the notice said.
"The district cannot accommodate your religious beliefs that...
prohibit you from maintaining a student's gender identity and
refraining from disclosing a student's gender identity from
his/her/their parent(s)/guardians," it continued.
This is the kind of world the democrats want!
A world where some people's beliefs cant be tolerated, but not other
You either believe what they believe, or you lose your job.
