Christian School Facing ‘Transgender’ Opponent in Girl’s Basketball Game Makes Stunning Decision


by Jack Davis

A Christian school in Vermont forfeited a girls high school basketball game and exited the state tournament rather than play an opponent with a transgender athlete on the team...winning cheers from many people, but infuriating the “woke” online.

Vermont law allows boys who claim they are girls to play on girls’ sports teams.

However, the Mid Vermont Christian School in White River Junction decided to pull its basketball team from the Division IV state tournament rather than play Long Trail on Tuesday, according to Valley News.

“We believe playing against an opponent with a biological male jeopardizes the fairness of the game and the safety of our players,” MVCS head of school Vicky Fogg said in an email to the outlet.

“Allowing biological males to participate in women’s sports sets a bad precedent for the future of women’s sports in general.”

Commentator and acclaimed psychologist Dr. Jordan Peterson applauded the school:

Lauren Thomas, the assistant executive director for the Vermont Principals’ Association, was surprised by the action, and said she was aware of the withdrawal but did not comment on the specific case.

“I have received calls from schools asking for best practices and how to go forward knowing they were going to play a team with a transgender female on it,” Thomas said, according to Valley News. “We just supported our stance and our best practices through our inclusivity statement.

In 2022, MVCS filed a letter with the state Agency of Education saying it could not comply with all state edicts.

“As a religious organization, the school has a statutory and constitutional right to make decisions based on its religious beliefs, including hiring and disciplining employees, associating with others, and in its admissions, conduct and operations policies and procedures,” Fogg wrote.

“By signing this form, the Mid Vermont Christian School does not waive any such rights,” she wrote.

To the extent state laws conflict with the school’s beliefs, “including on marriage and sexuality, the school has not included that language in its handbook or online, nor can it affirm that particular aspect of the Vermont Public Accommodations Act,” Fogg said.

It is quite shocking to many how dominant this male player is vs. the biological females in the league.

In an Op-Ed in the Vermont Daily Chronicle, fitness expert Aaron Warner praised the school’s decision, saying there is no question in his mind that “Rose” Johnson, Long Trail’s transgender player, is “a biological male in how he moves, runs, jumps and produces force.”

Warner said Johnson’s nickname is “Not in This House” because of his prowess in blocking shots.

In one game he had seven blocked shots. That means seven shots, typically closer to the basket so much more likely to go in, were blocked by the guy who is taller than every other girl on the floor, can jump higher and likely is significantly stronger,” Warner wrote. “In what world is this even remotely fair to other Vermont Division IV girls?”


He wrote that “the bantam Davids at MVCS are not to be demoralized. A story about standing up to giants reminds them who they ultimately serve.”

“Rather than participate and enable both delusion and danger they do what Christians do best,” Warner wrote. “They took a knee, said no thank you. Not in the house of the Lord.”

He said the facts on the Christian school’s side.

“As a professional coach and strength and fitness expert I happen to understand this situation better than most,” Warner wrote. “The field of exercise science, as much as biology, is where the discussion about trans-athletes should begin and end.

“The current ‘woke’ argument claims biology exists on a spectrum and that a person’s feelings about their identity trump their biological fingerprints. To be clear, there is no spectrum. There are no mutli-chromosomal pairings in humans, or any other mammals for that reason, so the pseudo-scientific claims made by the pretend scientists are Lysenkoism in drag.

“If you go to the animal kingdom you will not find male lions, hyenas, elephants, porpoises, dogs or monkeys manufacturing feminine hybrids. Humans are mammals and, like our inferior creatures, the biology is stark. One need only look at a mammal for a few seconds to know which sex they are.”

  1. Fascinating blog! Is your theme custom made or did you download it from somewhere? A theme like yours with a few simple adjustements would really make my blog shine. Please let me know where you got your theme. Kudos

  2. Yesterday, while I was at work, my sister stole my apple ipad and tested to see if it can survive a 30 foot drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation. My apple ipad is now destroyed and she has 83 views. I know this is entirely off topic but I had to share it with someone!

  3. Apparently MSM lost the ability to share the photo which shows the size and weight class difference among the women and this full grown, 30yo looking male whose only feminine trait is long dyed hair.

    I think it would be better matchup to put him on the team playing against the LA Lakers and see how long he lasts. Now realize that these women are getting his elbows, arms and 30% male strength and weight exceeding theirs going at a high rate of speed during sport. The leagues are traumatizing and inflicting harm on the female sports teams.

  4. Having read this I thought it was rather enlightening. I appreciate you spending some time and effort to put this article together. I once again find myself spending way too much time both reading and leaving comments. But so what, it was still worthwhile!
