Christian parents Nigel and Sally Rowe have launched a legal fight against the government in the United Kingdom over the way it has failed to protect their children from the school system’s transgender agenda.
Supported by the Christian Legal Center, Nigel, 48, and his wife Sally, 46, are seeking a judge’s review of the Department for Education’s refusal to intervene in their case and its promotion of what lawyers describe as the “politically partisan” Cornwall Schools Transgender Guidelines.
Those standards are used by schools, teachers and others to decide how transgender ideology can be fed to children in public schools.
“They include how to implement gender neutral toilets, encourage schools to accept cross-dressing and gender transition without question, and include links to controversial groups such as Mermaids,” according to a report at Christian Concern.
The standards were published in 2015 by activists promoting the transgender ideology, but their legitimacy has risen because of endorsement by the Department of Education.
The Rowes, from the Isle of Wight, had been given the choice by the Church of England school their sons were attending either to affirm transgenderism or be labeled “transphobic.”
