CBN News reports:

The attorney representing a Canadian student who was reportedly kicked out of school for the rest of the year for opposing transgender ideology at his Catholic high school is warning freedom in America’s neighbor to the north is quickly decaying.

“I think it’s representative of where the culture is at, where society is at, and where our government institutions are at up here,” attorney James Kitchen with the nonprofit Christian law firm Liberty Coalition Canada (LCC) told Fox News concerning the case against his client.

The young man, 16-year-old Josh Alexander, has described himself to several outlets as a born-again Christian.

Alexander, a junior at St. Joseph’s Catholic High School in Renfrew, Ontario, was suspended from school last November over comments he made during a class discussion that included the teacher. He was told by school officials he couldn’t return to school unless he recanted.

When he returned to the Catholic high school for the start of the second semester, he was promptly met by the vice-principal, arrested by two local police officers, and charged with trespassing, The Toronto Sun reported.

During an interview with the National Post, Alexander said the comments that got him into trouble were made during a class discussion about gender.

“It was about male students using female washrooms, gender dysphoria, and male breastfeeding. Everyone was sharing their opinions on it, any student who wanted to was participating, including the teacher,” Alexander said.

“I said there were only two genders, and you were born either a male or a female, and that got me into trouble. And then I said that gender doesn’t trump biology,” he recalled.
