A student at a Catholic high school in Canada was arrested because of his biblical viewpoint on the differences between men and women.
Josh Alexander shared with Tucker Carlson that he first stated his beliefs on the difference between men and women after female students at school told him about their worries after other male students tried to use the girls' restroom.
"Female students complained to me that they were concerned because males were using their washrooms. This turned into a debate at the school. I stated my opinion on it, and I used Scripture to back it up," Alexander told Carlson. "They removed me from the building for the remainder of the year and, when I attempted to attend class, I was arrested and charged."
In an interview with CBN News Alexander shared his full story of how he originally became a target of St. Joseph's Catholic High School last fall when the debate about boys using the girls' restroom came to light. For Alexander, this issue is not only against Scripture, but it goes against his belief that men have a duty to protect women.
"I felt it was my obligation and my duty," Alexander shared. "There's an attack on masculinity in our country and around the world quite frankly, and it is our duty as men to protect and provide and all that, and when a young lady comes and speaks to me about something they're concerned about and I am capable of speaking up against it and taking some sort of action against it, I'm going to."
Alexander ended up receiving two expulsions and was not allowed on school property for the remainder of semester. He was seen as a bully by the school administration and a potential mental and physical threat to the other students at the school, as reported by Charisma News. At the start of the new semester, he went back to the school and was arrested.
In a video of his arrest on Twitter by DC Draino and shared by Alexander, a group of pro-LGBTQ supporters can be heard cheering "Yes!" in the background.
When speaking with The Epoch Times, Alexander shared how having a Christian viewpoint does not automatically make someone a bully. It simply gives them a different angle from which they see the world.
"It doesn't mean I'm harassing anybody. They express their beliefs and I express mine. Mine obviously don't fit the narrative."
Previously, Alexander had contact with police when he helped with the freedom convoy when Canadian truck drivers took a stand against to government overreach. The protest was also supported by Christian believers in the U.S.
