desks in high school classroomA board of education in Maine has voted to exclude parents from being involved if their children are confused by their gender. 

Under this policy, public school teachers in Portland will also be required to undergo annual training on transgenderism.

Confused students, meanwhile, will be allowed to use the bathrooms and locker rooms of the gender with which they identify.

According to lifesitenews.com, the policy forces school administrators to change official school records at the request of students.

Linda Harvey of Mission America predicts this policy will divide families with help from public school officials.

"What's happening," she warns, "is that the school is becoming a place where children in deep and very personal rebellion against their biology can find an ally even if their parents are saying, No."

Harvey believes these types of policies involve more than just secular implications and issues.

"This is starting to look an awful lot like a spiritual issue," she observes, "where people are basically losing their minds. And it almost is starting to sound like demon oppression. I hate to put it that way but that's what it's looking like."
