Stop Using Tax Dollars to Fund Anti-LGBTQ School

Target: Dietra Trent, Secretary of Education, Virginia

Goal: Don’t use taxpayer dollars to fund school with an anti-LGBTQ agenda.

Taxpayer dollars are being used to fund a private school with an anti-LGBTQ agenda. Timberlake Christian Schools in Virginia is just one of 700 in the United States that openly discriminates against the LGBTQ community, yet profits from taxpayer funds while doing so.

Timberlake Christian Schools has expelled students for not conforming to traditional gender stereotypes. One student, an eight-year-old girl who preferred short hair and pants, was expelled for not acting “Christlike.” That same year, this school received over $100,000 in funds from the Virginia Department of Education.

Schools that bully and discriminate against students should not be allowed to profit off the money of taxpayers. Sign the petition and demand that the state of Virginia stop using tax dollars to fund an anti-LGBTQ school.


Dear Secretary Trent,

Taxpayers in your state pay between $100,000-$200,000 per year to fund a school with an openly anti-LGBTQ policy. Timberlake Christian Schools has expelled students for not following traditional gender stereotypes. It is fine that state money be used to support education; however, it should not be be used to support discrimination.

I demand that the Virginia Department of Education pull all taxpayer-funded scholarships and financial aid from Timberlake Christian Schools until the school abandons its anti-LGBTQ policy. This money can be better spent going toward other schools that are more open and supportive of students from all backgrounds.

  3. Dear Yea, I couldn’t say it better. Only by bullying, changing the science, declaring a war on anyone who doesn’t believe like me, infiltrating our schools, and hijacking pop culture has the screaming brat in the corner gotten their way, the gay/queer lobby. Diversity is great only if your ideas are like mine say the lgbtq and friends. Guess what history goes to those with diverse ideas. How many mosques, Hindu temples, Sikh temples, Jewish communities, and Catholic Churches agree with what the Christian schools are teaching ? You didn’t mention them. These are all private schools, no one is forced to go there, no one should be demanding these schools teach exactly the way the gay lobby thinks.I think I might find me a gay baker and demand he make me a cake celebrating my Christian faith. ( of course not, I would never do that)
