Jessica Tapia, a Christian teacher working at the Jurupa Unified School District in California, was fired for refusing to obey a California district’s gender policies—concealing information on students’ gender transitions from their parents—due to her Christian beliefs. “I essentially had to pick one,” Tapia told Fox News Digital. “Am I going to obey the district in the directive that are not lining up with… my own beliefs, convictions and faith? Or am I going to stay true…, choose my faith, choose to be obedient to… the way the Lord has called me to live. And so it was crazy to be in the position where I realized that I couldn’t be a Christian and a teacher.”
