(RightWing.org) – A Canadian teenager has been suspended from school and then ARRESTED for saying something that, a few years ago, wouldn’t have been controversial at all. The high school student is the latest victim of gender ideology — simply because he doesn’t agree with it. Now he’s taking his case to a human rights court.

Last year Josh Alexander, a 16-year-old student at St. Joseph’s High School in Renfrew, Ontario, organized a protest against male students who claimed to be trans using the girls’ washrooms. Some girls at the school were uncomfortable about this, so Alexander — a born-again Christian who had already been shouted down in class for saying he believed there were only two genders — decided to do something about it. So, he organized a walkout in protest, drawing on his experience supporting last January’s Freedom Convoy by Canadian truckers.
The school quickly reacted to the protest, but not by making sure girls had safe single-sex washrooms. Instead, they suspended Alexander, claiming he had been bullying transgender students. The school lifted the suspension last month, but Renfrew County Catholic District School Board overruled that decision and suspended the teen until the end of the school year. When he tried to go back to school on February 6, he was arrested — and now he says the school has told him his presence is harmful to trans students.
Now Alexander has filed an appeal with the school board against his suspension, arguing it’s discrimination against his religious beliefs. His lawyer has told the school’s principal that Alexander’s Christian faith means he can’t “knowingly speak a falsehood,” for example, pretending people can actually change sex. As well as the appeal, he also plans to raise his case with the Human Rights Tribunal of Ontario. Until then, though, he’s still banned from school — just because he disagrees with far-left dogma.
