Ankeny Centennial has pride flags hanging in a stairwell. The transgender pride flag hangs alongside the LGBTQ “Progress Pride” flag.

In November, Ankeny voters selected a slate of conservatives to serve on the school board. The Iowa Standard has reached out to the individual board members seeking comments on the appropriateness for gender and sexual ideology flags being displayed in the stairway.


We’ll publish any responses we receive.

  1. In Stone v. Graham (1980), the SCOTUS ruled that a Kentucky statute was unconstitutional and in violation of the Establishment Clause of the First Amendment. The statute required posting the Ten Commandments on the wall of each public classroom in the state. but because they were being placed in public classrooms, they were in violation of the First Amendment. Shortly hereafter a new federal cabinet level bureaucracy of an atheist teachers’ union emerges. Welcome to the downfall of education in America.

    Who having the power to decide what children are taught has always been a point of controversy? I would assert that the responsibility rests on the parents and that school boards, teachers, superintendents and principals are merely extensions of parents. Now we have liberal atheist proponents saying parents should just shut up, stay away, and let the educators “do their jobs.” Of course, standing on a biblical worldview is considered farcical by the atheists. If Hitler were alive today, he would staunchly support the teachers’ union. Indoctrinating the Hitler Youth in the 1930s is what produced the Wehrmacht in the 1940s, ergo the German word Kindergarten or children’s garden. This effort prefaced the Third Reich.

    Isn’t display of the transgender pride flag hanging alongside the LGBTQ “Progress Pride” flag a violation of Stone v. Graham? Or does the SCOTUS ruling in 1980 only work one way? Atheism is a religion of no God being forced upon the young of which the book of Deuteronomy teaches quite the opposite. If the religious symbols of the Ten Commandments had to be removed, then why not remove the religious symbols of atheism. I think a fair compromise is to just teach reading, writing and arithmetic, basic skills in public schools, and leave theology out of public education altogether. What’s good for pro-Christ symbology is also good for anti-Christ symbology.

    Strike the symbols of atheist oppression!
