Bunnell, FL--We were reminded of Gideon's Army in Judges 7:17-22 as Evidence Ministry supporters gathered in front of the Government Services Building in Flagler County, FL. Our enormous impact was made with fewer than 20 brave souls who stood with us to say STOP LYING to this School Board!! Glory to our God! Elder Nathaniel Wilcox opened in PUBLIC PRAYER which is being fought furiously by Democrats (to pray during any County meeting). We sang a song of Zion "I'M FREE!! Praise the Lord I'm Free!! No Longer Bound!! No More Chains Holding Me!!" Our speakers gave powerful witness that Christ-centered activism is alive and well, even in this culture! Our worship and public statements of fact concerning sexualized indoctrination of children in schools clearly agitated opposing viewers, who began to squeal loudly in an attempt to drown us out. We were completely prepared for this because Scripture shows us that where the name of Jesus is lifted high, demons tremble and squeal for fear of being cast OUT!! Most of the opposing crowd were children and multi-colored-hair teenagers, mixed with a few homosexual and trans promoting teachers and lost parents. Thankfully the group of citizens who stood with The Evidence Ministry were ALL Super Voters, and seasoned, wise, parents and grandparents from Flagler and surrounding Counties, including Christian patriot and author CS Bennett!!! Although we hoped for local pastors and congregations to join us for this much need push back, The Lord obviously deselected the fearful, cowardly, and those ashamed to speak of the gospel of Christ in public or who just don't care about the FACTS concerning the dangers of transgender/homosexual indoctrination in Flagler County (or other) schools. Once we moved inside, founder of Freedom Speaks, Bev Kilmer, was the very first to address the Board during the first public comments session. Her no nonsense style and rebuke of ANY consideration for sexualizing children in school policy was profoundly stated and set the tone for the entire meeting! She was no less forceful in her statements outside before the meeting began. She gave a stinging rebuke to pastors and religious leaders who have gone underground on this issue.

I personally reached out to several local pastors with only one returned phone call to offer a lousy excuse for not attending. Just as I began to think that perhaps they didn't call us back because they could not support a "woman preacher" or maybe because they would not support a Black female leading the contingent, we were some what relieved to learn we had it ALL wrong! Bev Kilmer is a white Southern Bell and a former legislator who served 8 years in the Florida House of Representatives. However, on this issue, pastors in Tallahassee, FL where she is widely known won't return her call either!!! Thank you, Bev, for normalizing my experience! We both know MANY wonderful pastors and leaders, great men and women of God however we can't figure why they cannot link arms with organizations fighting to save children and families in their congregations from obvious harm! We KNOW they're dealing, unsuccessfully, with these issues. Many have a false sense of security concerning education of their children because they home school but please don't feel too safe because you home school or have a Christian school on your campus. THEY ARE COMING FOR YOU TOO!! Brother Pastor, we NEED one another in this fight. Time is of the essence. Another powerful public speaker opposing trans policies during the meeting was Mark Nelson, a former gay man who was completely delivered from gender dysphoria years ago. He is a happily married father and an awesome ministry leader. After a barrage of misinformation by trans promoting teenagers and their allies at the mic, the atmosphere was SHIFTED by Nancy Randolph, a teacher from Victory Christian Academy of Orlando, FL. Miss Randolph absolutely destroyed the myth that our opposition demonstrates 'discrimination' against gays or 'trans' students. About their imagined "fluidity" she pointed out "I can't go into and back out of being Black!" The TRUTH rings like a bell! I could barely contained my applause!
After a brief recess the meeting continued with less than half its audience. I noticed that one of my new supporters, Mrs. Audrey Purcell, a retired school teacher, was still seated in the back. She completed a request to speak at the end. I hadn't heard her say very much before last night's meeting but when she approached the mic this little lady drop a BOMB on Flagler School Board members with one question!! She asked "What RESEARCH and information are each of YOU going to bring to us, the community, to show us that you've personally studied this issue before you decide to add any such changes to District policy??" She said, "This issue is in crisis mode and not just in Flagler County." I'm telling you I saw the blood rush from their faces! Mrs. Purcell called out the Flagler County School Board for hiding behind "community input" as if these self-diagnosing teenagers and their trans promoting ACLU backed allies are the 'experts' about what is harmful to the children in our District. We intend to follow up with each Flagler Board member until her question is addressed.
