Inflation is off the charts, Russia’s on the verge of a Ukrainian war, shoppers can’t find a bagged salad to save their lives, and what is Joe Biden’s focus? Transgenderism. While the country fights to stay above water in the COVID surge, worker shortage, price hikes, and every other crisis this administration has made worse, the Department of Education has decided to take the fight over gender identity to Christian colleges. If this is their attempt to change the conversation, it’s a pathetic one.


Secretary Miguel Cardona must be a glutton for punishment, because fresh off of the news that he was responsible for the “parents-as-domestic-terrorists” letter scandal, he’s directing his attack dogs at the Office of Civil Rights to investigate Lincoln Christian University in Illinois for not indulging the fantasy of one of its male students who wanted to be treated as a girl on campus. Kalie Hargrove, the young man in question, claims the university “discriminated against [him]” by associating him with his actual biological sex.

Hargrove, who’s no longer at LCU, complained to the Religious Exemption Accountability Project (REAP), which is systematically targeting Christian institutions that uphold biblical sexuality. Now, the extremists at REAP have apparently convinced the DOE to act, writing, “In August 2021, the University discriminated against Kalie Hargrove (Student A) on the basis of sex (gender identity) by directing her either to withdraw from classes or face discipline because she publicly identified as transgender.”
