A JUDGE has ordered a Virginia gym teacher be reinstated after he vowed he would not “recognize that biological boys can be girls.”
Byron Cross was suspended after he said he would not use students’ preferred pronouns during a Loudoun County Public Schools meeting last month due to his religious beliefs.

Cross said that because of his Christian faith, he could not recognize “a biological boy can be a girl and vice versa.”
“It’s lying to a child, it’s abuse to a child, and it’s sinning against our God,” the gym teacher continued.
On Tuesday, Judge James Plowman ordered a temporary injunction and slammed the school district for suspending Cross with only three weeks left in the school year.
In his ruling, Judge Plowman said that “action could certainly have been taken by the Defendants that did not rise to this extreme,” according to The Loudoun Times-Mirror.

Cross sued the school district last week, saying that the suspension violated his First Amendment rights.
During Cross’ controversial speech that led to the suspension, the teacher brought up a recent 60 Minutes special that showed teens who were “de-transitioning” after making the decision to change their identities.
Cross said he was “speaking out of love for those who are suffering from gender dysphoria.”
The policy that Cross was speaking against at the meeting requires that school staff “allow gender-expansive or transgender students to use their chosen name and gender pronouns that reflect their gender identity without any substantiating evidence.”

Virginia‘s Loudoun County school district drew national attention earlier this year when parents clashed with school board members who they say pushed critical race theory in the district.
Some parents in the affluent suburb wanted six board members they accused of pushing critical race theory and vilifying any critics recalled.
An ad released on social media last month accused the district of training teachers that Christians are oppressors, riddled with “white privilege” and “white fragility.”
