Who put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!” (Isaiah 5:20).

The Vermont school sparked a firestorm last month in high school sports
A Vermont Christian school that forfeited a game in the girls state basketball playoffs because its opponent had a transgender student on the team’s roster will be prohibited from participating in future tournaments, the sports governing association in the state said Monday.
The Vermont Principals’ Association (VPA) ruled that Mid Vermont Christian Schoolhad violated policies and is ineligible to participate in future tournaments that it sanctions. The move applies to all sports.
“The VPA again reiterates its ongoing support of transgender student-athletes as not only a part of building an inclusive community for each student to grow and thrive, but also as a clear expectation by Vermont state law(s) in the Agency of Education Best Practices, and in VPA Policy regarding transgender student athletes,” the governing body said in a statement.

Officials said the White River Junction-based school failed to meet the association’s policies on race, gender and disability awareness.
Mid Vermont Christian School did not immediately respond to Fox News Digital’s request for comment.
Last month, the Mid Vermont Christian School dropped out of the tournament ahead of a game against Long Trail Mountain. Head of School Vicky Fogg argued at the time that it was unfair and unsafe for the high school girls to play against a biological male on the opposing team.
A Vermont school was prohibited from future tournaments after forfeiting a game last month over the opponent having a transgender girl on the team.
“We withdrew from the tournament because we believe playing against an opponent with a biological male jeopardizes the fairness of the game and the safety of our players. Allowing biological males to participate in women’s sports sets a bad precedent for the future of women’s sports in general,” Fogg wrote in a statement to Fox News Digital in February.
State law prohibits discrimination against student athletes because of their gender identity and says any disputes over students’ participation on sports teams that don’t match their biological gender must be considered on a case-by-case basis.
“Transgender and gender nonconforming students are to be provided the same opportunities to participate in physical education as are all other students. Generally, students should be permitted to participate in physical education and sports in accordance with the student’s gender identity. Participation in competitive athletic activities and sports will be resolved on a case-by-case basis,” the Vermont Agency of Education’s best practices reads.

The department also says transgender students should not be required to use the bathroom or locker room “that conflicts with the student’s gender identity.” Source
This is absolutely outrageous, immoral and EVIL on so many levels. How can these transgenders compete against women, knowing the unfairness of it? You would think they would be ashamed!
It’s just diabolical!

They have no shame. As the Lord warned Judah in Jeremiah 6:15
“Were they ashamed when they committed abomination?
No, they were not at all ashamed;
they did not know how to blush.
Therefore they shall fall among those who fall;
at the time that I punish them, they shall be overthrown,”
says the LORD.”
Destruction is coming to the USA for just this kind of behavior, and endless other rebellions and blasphemies. Yes, judgment IS on the horizon, all those with ears to hear and eyes to see know it’s true.
God’s patience is nearly finished and, as promised, He will bring GREAT TRIBULATION upon all earth-dwellers who do not know Him. We must urgently share the gospel.
They did the Right thing.
