March Madness at VCA – Transgender Students in Virginia Schools

March Madness at VCA – Transgender Students in Virginia Schools

We all like to think that once the General Assembly session is over, we can take a breath. Well, March came in like a lion and went out like a lion. At VCA, we spent the month doing mailings about issues and prepared for two events.

Letters were mailed to every Public School Superintendent and School Board Chair in the Commonwealth addressing the new phenomenon of cross-dressing transgendered students attending our public schools. We asked each school district:

  • Does your district have a policy to deal with transgender students, teachers, and staff
  • Does your district have any current issues regarding transgender students, teachers, or staff
  • If so, what is the specific policy you are using to address the issue
  • Where can the public access or find that policy

This issue of transgendered public school students has barely surfaced in Virginia. We know some schools already have issues, but only two systems – Stafford County and Gloucester County, have become public. It seems other systems are keeping their situations private.

Story of Father’s Day – June 15, 2014

Story of Father’s Day – June 15, 2014

He shall turn the heart of the fathers to the children, and the heart of the children to their fathers. Malachi 4:6

Father's Day is a beautiful festival that acknowledges and appreciates the important role played by a father in raising the child and consequently building a stronger society. Though fathers have been revered at all times by civilizations across the globe ironically what was missing until the last century was the official recognition of the significance of fathers in one's life. Father's Day story is the tale of realization of the need for a Father's Day festival primarily by Ms Sonora Louise Smart Dodd of Washington. The story narrates Sonora's unflagging struggle to officially set a day to honor all fathers. Thanks to Sonora, today Fathers Day is celebrated in a large number of countries around the world.

Virginia Christian Alliance Wishes Everyone a Blessed Memorial Day

Virginia Christian Alliance Wishes Everyone a Blessed Memorial Day

Memorial Day: The Price of Freedom May 2014  Courtesy of the Family Research Council

Freedom truly is a gift from God.  Words engraved on Jefferson’s Memorial reflect that truth: “God who gave us life gave us liberty at the same time.”  And freedom is foundational to who we are as a people.  It is a part of the American DNA.  But freedom is not free. Jesus Himself said:

“Greater love has no one than this, than to lay down one’s life for his friends.” (John 15:13)

Freedom requires sacrifice. And that is true for our nation. The cost of freedom is great.  The fight for freedom is never over.  We must fight to win it, and then we must fight to keep it.
