Fairfax County School Board Member Sworn In On Banned LGBTQ Children’s Books

by Chelsea Betonie

Karl Frisch, a Democratic Fairfax County School Board member, was sworn in for his second term on Wednesday.

Rather than using a Bible, he opted to use a stack of banned LGBTQ children’s books as part of his oath of office.

This unconventional choice has sparked criticism due to concerns that it might normalize behavior deemed unacceptable by some.

Frisch holds the titles of Vice Chair and soon-to-be Chair for the Board, and is both the first openly LGBTQ+ individual elected to local office in Fairfax County—Virginia’s largest—and one of few openly LGBTQ+ school board members across the Commonwealth, according to Blue Virginia.

He won his re-election by more than 30 points and received 67% of votes this year—a larger share than in 2019.

“Fairfax County residents want safe and inclusive schools with exceptional, well-compensated educators and equitable access to the rigorous academic and enrichment opportunities every student needs to succeed,” said Vice Chair Frisch. “

“I am grateful for the trust Providence District families have placed in me, and with tonight’s Oath, I commit to standing strong for these values and advancing these priorities with my new and returning colleagues.”

The recent action of Fairfax County School Board Member Ryan McElveen Frisch during his oath-taking ceremony reflects a concerning shift in societal norms. By selecting books such as “The Perks of Being a Wallflower,” “Lawn Boy,” “All Boys Aren’t Blue,” “Gender Queer,” and “Flamer,” which have been subject to bans in various districts, instead of a Bible for his swearing-in process, he has undermined the traditional sanctity associated with the event and represented an affront to historical values.

Although school board members were given the freedom to choose any book for their swearing-in without any specific instruction to bring a religious text according to a report by Blue Virginia, this action still raises concerns about shifting societal norms.

“I’m told that Fairfax County School Board members brought whatever books they wanted to their swearing-in, were NOT told specifically to bring a religious book and were NOT provided one. Apparently, only one or two members were sworn in on a Bible, while some weren’t sworn in on any book at all,” the news outlet reported.

This has become a world of liars, conmen and perverts! We don’t need people like this anywhere near our children.
Instead of being elected, he should be banned from schools!!
I’m sick of all the perversions, corruption and idiocy within our society.
We are most definitely a nation in decline!!
I don’t believe this is what 100’s of thousands of brave Americans have given their lives to protect and promote.
May God help us all!!

Get your kids out of these schools. They are no doing this to be inclusive they are doing it to groom your children and to sexualize them at an early age so they can be more easily groomed by the predators and there are more of these predators than you know. Your children are not getting an academic education in these schools. They are not safe and about to get a lot less safe. Destroying morals is part of the steps in which they turn a country to communism. Most of those steps have already been completed.
