California Pastor Chad Vegas resigns school board over homosexual sex ed for students

A popular Southern California pastor resigned from the high school board after the passing of a mandate requiring homosexual safe-sex education in public schools, lessons on how to get an abortion and the normalizing of gender fluidity.

Pastor Chad Vegas noted in an email that after 12 years of serving on the board he faced a potential lawsuit for his decision to vote against the policy.

Vegas states, “I have served on the largest high school board in CA, and the nation, for 12 years. I basically lead that board. Our board voted to adopt the new law into policy. I voted against it. I was breaking the law for doing so. I could be personally sued and our attorney tells me the board insurance won’t cover me because I am breaking the law and I am a bigot.”

Many urged Vegas not to give up the fight: “Thousands of parents filled our board room in protest of the law. Thousands are pleading with me to reconsider and keep fighting. My elders are still considering what to have me do…. [T]he board and administration, and even some leaders in the liberal teacher’s union, are asking me to reconsider.”

Despite the opposition to the policy, Vegas decided to resign and not seek re-election on the board.
The California law requires that the state’s middle and high schools offer instruction to students on how to have safe homosexual sex and how to get an abortion. It also requires schools to teach that gender does not correspond to biological sex.

Vegas announced last month in a letter to his Sovereign Grace Church congregation that he would not run for re-election, despite the community’s pleas for him to remain.

“My time as a public school board member has come to an end. I am very much at peace with this decision,” the June 2 post read. “While I am not optimistic about the future of our country, I am deeply optimistic about the future of Christ’s church. Jesus will build his church and the gates of Hell will not prevail against it.”

“It is legally required to teach your children the LGBTQ sexual mores while simultaneously illegal to mention God,” he wrote. “I can’t and won’t enforce that foolishness.”

“I am a Christian pastor above all else,” he continued. “I could not vote for these policies. I can not remain on a board to enforce these policies. I spoke out against the board voting for this. I called on them to realize that they will answer to God on this vote, and they should fear Him more than the state. I did not prevail.”
