Two Christian teachers in California are pursuing legal action against a school district over a gender policy that they claim forces them to deceive parents about students’ secret gender transitions.

Lori Ann West and Elizabeth Mirabelli, both devout Christians, sought religious accommodation from the district but faced potential disciplinary actions for non-compliance.

The teachers, with decades of experience, have been on leave after refusing to comply. (Trending: US State Unveils Controversial ‘Gender Neutral’ Laws)

“I just looked around the room like, is this real? This is really happening? This seems crazy. This seems like the school wants to take over to be the parent. And as a parent, I would not want that for my own children,” West said.

“One of the things that also really bothered us was that there was a disciplinary part of this policy that if we didn’t follow it, we could possibly be written up, even leading to firing. And that was really where I was like, this is so wrong,” she added.

“I believe in the teachings of the Bible… We follow the laws in the Bible. And that’s a wonderful thing. And it seems like at my school, we have been put down for that.”

They are suing the district for allegedly violating the First Amendment.

The lawsuit alleges that the school district is compelling teachers to deceive parents and hide information about students’ gender transitions.

“A number of teachers posed a question to our admin team asking when our wider community would be notified about this new policy. We never really got an answer, which made us a little suspicious,” Mirabelli said.

“Both Mirabelli and West are being illegally prevented from returning to their classrooms and both have been punitively targeted in retaliation for their whistleblower actions against the district,” the Thomas More Society stated.

“Public schools should never hide information from or lie to parents about a child’s mental health or personal circumstances. And schools should never compel teachers to perpetrate such a deception,” the complaint read.

“Yet, the Escondido Union School District has done just that… Once a child’s social transitioning has begun, EUSD elementary and middle school teachers must ensure that parents do not find out.”

“If a suspicious parent asks a teacher about whether their child has socially transitioned at school, the teacher must simply respond that ‘the inquiry is outside of the scope of the intent of their interaction’ and that they can only discuss ‘information regarding the student’s behavior as it relates to school, class rules, assignments, etc.,’” the suit added.
