A teenager attending a Catholic high school in Canada who was recently suspended for daring to stand up for traditional Christian values by speaking out against transgenderism has been arrested for trying to attend class. How many kids do you know get slapped in handcuffs for trying to attend school instead for skipping out? It’s unbelievable how backwards the culture we live in these days really is. Good grief.
“Last November, 16-year-old Josh Alexander was suspended for one month from St. Joseph’s Catholic High School in Renfrew, Ontario, about an hour west of Ottawa. Alexander claimed that he received the suspension after he stated openly in class that God created only two genders and he organized a protest against males using women’s restrooms at the school,” TheBlaze reported.
The Renfrew County Catholic District School Board, which describes itself as being an “inclusive Catholic learning community,” that oversees a number of Catholic schools, including St. Joseph’s, has distanced itself from Alexander, along with any and all attempts to protest against “transgender” students being allowed to use the restroom of the sex they identify as.
Whenever you see an institution like this using terms like “inclusive” in their description, what they are really saying is they support and likely push the LGBTQ+ narrative and agenda. If these organizations refer to themselves as belonging to the Christian faith, you can rest assured they are absolutely not truly following the teachings of Jesus Christ and the Holy Bible.
“The Renfrew County Catholic District School Board strongly condemns transphobia and all forms of hate,” a statement from the group went on to say.
“Alexander’s suspension for that protest was supposed to end in January, but the Catholic school board decided to continue to ‘exclude’ him for the remainder of the school year. An exclusion is similar to a suspension except it’s issued for non-disciplinary reasons. Alexander, who calls himself a ‘born-again Christian,’ said he was told that his presence would be ‘detrimental to the physical and mental well-being’ of supposedly transgender students,” TheBlaze said.
What the school is really saying is that transgender students have more rights than other students. If others do not feel comfortable sharing their restrooms with individuals who are actually the opposite biological sex they have a right to protest and to have their privacy protected. But the left does not believe that. They believe not in equality, but elevation. Transgender students are therefore given more rights than the other kids attending the institution.
“Since Alexander is enrolled in a Catholic school, he is not allowed to find ‘an alternative route of education.’ So to continue learning, Alexander decided to return to the only school where he is legally enrolled: St. Joseph’s,” the report noted.
“On Monday, Alexander arrived on campus with the intention of attending class. However, he was prevented from entering the school when police placed him under arrest, reportedly on trespassing-related charges. He was placed in custody for a few hours and then released,” TheBlaze stated.
Alexander feels the arrest is an example of religious discrimination, which sounds strange when you realize the offending party here is a Catholic institution that should be upholding the very values that got this young man booted from the school. Alexander stated in a tweet that he was “being excluded for indicating my intent to adhere to my religious beliefs.”

“Offense is obviously defined by the offended,” Alexander went on to say after he was first suspended. “I expressed my religious beliefs in class and it spiraled out of control. Not everybody’s going to like that. That doesn’t make me a bully. It doesn’t mean I’m harassing anybody. They express their beliefs and I express mine. Mine obviously don’t fit the narrative.”
The attorney representing Alexander, James Kitchen, along with the chief litigator for Liberty Coalition Canada, has made the claim that the student’s arrest at the school was “not entirely unexpected.”
“Unfortunately, it takes this sort of drastic confrontation for people to just realize the insanity [of the situation],” Kitchen explained.
While officials at St. Joseph’s have reportedly told Alexander that his actions “may have violated the Safe Schools policy,” which they say were created to create a safe learning environment, the school likely violated the tenets of the faith by making accommodations for the claims of transgenderism.
“Everyone, man and woman, should acknowledge and accept his sexual identity,” the Catechism of the Catholic Church says leaving no room for doubt as to its meaning.“Physical, moral, and spiritual difference and complementarity are oriented toward the goods of marriage and the flourishing of family life. The harmony of the couple and of society depends in part on the way in which the complementarity, needs, and mutual support between the sexes are lived out.”
“Alexander has previously stated that he intends to file a complaint with a human rights tribunal, but that process has been delayed since he has also filed a petition to become independent from his parents to shield them from the legal forces bearing down on him. Alexander ruffled many feathers in 2022 when he organized a school walk-out to show support for the Canadian trucker convoy, which was protesting government lockdowns,” the report added.
Fox News has stated that the principal at St. Joseph’s would not discuss the current situation with Alexander due to Canadian law that prevents him from talking about an ongoing case.
