Byron “Tanner” Cross, a physical education teacher at Leesburg Elementary School in Loudoun County, Virginia, spoke strongly against a new transgender policy at a recent public school board meeting. He was immediately placed on leave from his job. A Virginia court ruled on Tuesday that the county school system must halt its retaliation and reinstate Cross.

Cross was responding to proposed Policy 8040 that requires all school staff in his county to “allow gender-expansive or transgender students to use their chosen name and gender pronouns that reflect their gender identity without any substantiating evidence, regardless of the name and gender recorded in the student’s permanent educational record.”

In addition, the policy demands:

School staff shall, at the request of a student or parent/legal guardian, when using a name or pronoun to address the student, use the name and pronoun that correspond to their gender identity. The use of gender-neutral pronouns are appropriate. Inadvertent slips in the use of names or pronouns may occur; however, staff or students who intentionally and persistently refuse to respect a student’s gender identity by using the wrong name and gender pronoun are in violation of this policy.

The proposed policy also holds “Students should be allowed to use the restrooms and locker rooms that corresponds to their gender identity.”

To his school board and community at the public hearing, Cross bravely explained:

I love all of my students, but I will never lie to them regardless of the consequences. I’m a teacher but I serve God first and I 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.

Cross is correct. Christianity and Judaism both hold from page one that God lovingly creates each of us in His image and likeness as male and female. It is specifically and singularly our human male and femaleness that show forth the image of God in the visible world.

Thus, our bodies make a very profound statement and God certainly does not tell us
