What a blessing to hear good news in the Commonwealth of Virginia! This goes to show you how parents, students, teachers, AND pastors can voice their thoughts/distaste of unnatural behavior being thrown into the faces of our children. Common sense people, with a Biblical world view, coming to a fight for sanity. Thus is what we need more of in our country!

After hearing from parents on Wednesday night into the wee hours of Thursday morning, and following weeks of intense opposition from county residents, the Prince William County School Board voted to postpone until at least next June any further discussion on elevating the subjective notions of sexual orientation and gender identity to a special protected status in the schools’ policy.
This is a HUGE WIN for parents and students in Prince William and all across the Commonwealth!
Prince William County residents and leaders, much like Fairfax County before them, are a shining example of how concerned parents can stand up and successfully push back against dangerous and politically-motivated policies that seek to blur all lines of truth and sanity while making our children the guinea pigs for Leftist social experiments.
For over five hours, nearly 140 speakers passionately and compellingly addressed a proposed revision to the school system’s policy that would elevate the subjective notions of sexual orientation and gender identity to a special protected status. From our assessment, at least 90% of the comments were from parents, grandparents, students, pastors, and community leaders strongly opposed to the idea of putting boys in girls’ bathrooms, locker rooms, showers, and bedrooms for overnight trips.
Backing them up with their support, booming applause, hand-made signs, with many wearing their characteristic red, several hundred Prince William residents – mostly parents – filled the meeting room, as well as an overflow room reserved specially for this meeting.
In fact, it was remarkable just how one-sided it turned out to be. Parents were having none of it. And as we saw, the School Board members got the message. The only member to oppose the motion to postpone discussion until the next year was Chairman Ryan Sawyers, the man singularly responsible for pushing this nonsensical policy change despite overwhelming reasons to back off.
While the School Board should have gone ahead and voted down this terrible policy, it was notable that they decided to take no action until after the courts provided more guidance on the matter. But after witnessing what parents in Prince William pulled together in just a few short weeks of learning about this policy, imagine what parents and residents can do with nearly a year’s worth of coordination!
Perhaps the School Board members are thinking to themselves, “I fear we may have only awoken a sleeping giant.”
For now, count this one as a win for parents, a win for student safety, privacy, and dignity, a win for the rule of law, and a win for sanity and common sense. In the meantime, other counties across Virginia should look to Prince William County as a great model for protecting our school children.
The Lynchburg Tea Party is passing on information about this local event.
Lynchburg Tea Party

Join us on Thursday, September 1st
Lynchburg Tea Party meeting!
• 7:00 pm but arrive early for snacks (6:30 pm).
• Lynchburg Memorial Library, 2311 Memorial Ave, Lynchburg, VA 24501.
We will be watching the movie “Clinton Cash” so make it a point to join us for movie night (more like a scary movie night!). It’s a real eye-opener! The new “Clinton Cash” documents how the Clinton’s have enriched themselves through their Foundation and shady deals approved by Hillary’s State Department. Voters need to know the truth about this blatant corruption before November 8th!
“If anyone still doubts that the Clinton’s are greedy, corrupt, and morally reprehensible, they won’t after this.” *
“Clinton Cash” reveals numerous examples of lucrative, blatant pay-to-play schemes that enriched the Clinton’s, their Foundation, and their high-powered cronies. Highlights from the movie:
• The Clinton Foundation often used the guise of humanitarian disaster relief efforts in places like Haiti, Rwanda, the Congo, Nigeria, Columbia, and India.
• Clinton’s State Department approved business deals that benefited the Clinton Foundation, including a multi-million-dollar deal involving Canada’s Keystone XL pipeline.
• Very outrageous is how the Clinton Foundation made millions when Hillary’s State Dept. granted Russia control of over 20 percent of the S. uranium reserves located in Wyoming, Texas, and Utah.
Bring anyone you know who needs to learn about the Clinton’s and their Foundation to the Tea Party meeting this Thursday night!
* “Clinton Cash” the movie is based on Peter Schweizer’s book of the same name. Review of “Clinton Cash” — www.nationalreview.com/article/435864/clinton-cash-movie-hillary-clinton-unfit-for-presidency
