How is that for a catchy title?
But first, that is our school board Andy, Diana and I along with Eric from the Maricopa Chamber at our ribbon cutting on Wednesday. Nice turnout. A big thank you to the Maricopa Chamber of Commerce and their support.
Back to the subjects of the catchy title.
If you are new to our state or have not had the chance to follow the many bills passed by the state legislature, all of those issues in the title have been addressed in the snowstorm of activity ending this year's legislative session.
This is a quote from the USNews article by Jonathan J. Cooper and Bob Christie June 23, 2021.
"The Senate amendments to the budget also ban so-called “critical race theory,” ban K-12 schools and universities from requiring COVID-19 vaccines, prevent both from requiring face masks if the coronavirus pandemic surges again and bar any employer or business from requiring vaccine passports."
There is no reason to abandon public or charter schools and run to Maricopa Christian Academy in Arizona for any of those reasons. I would add maybe you should be thankful not only for our conservative legislature but along with clean water, a fairly honest government, plentiful sunshine, and that you don't live in a different state, like maybe Oregon.
English Standard Version Genesis 5:2
Male and female he created them, and he blessed them and named them Man when they were created.
The current issue of gender is not a civil rights issue but a moral issue. Boys and girls are different physically and emotionally. The issue is one of people trying to fulfill their own sexual desires. The idea of gender fluidity has no place in our churches, schools or homes.
Masks and vaccines are decisions made by the children's parents, not their school.
Though the teaching of Critical Race Theory (CRT) in schools is against the law in Arizona, the idea of resorting to blaming other people for the troubles of an entire group of people is downright sad. CRT or any philosophy, idea or prejudice blaming people of differing shades of skin or faith for whatever is ailing our society at the moment is hateful and certainly does not reflect the love expected by our Lord.
Maricopa Christian School is here to serve all of our families no matter what shade of skin color they and their families have. All are made in God's image. Our student's achievements will reflect that.
As Paul ends Ephesians, so I end this blog, "Grace be with all who love our Lord Jesus Christ with love incorruptible." Eph. 6:24
