Quote

“We’re not treating people as individuals in God’s image. People who can engage in a conversation as equals, can disagree with each other, can be persuaded by data and science and what you see with your eyes ā€” all of that is being dismissed in favor of an indoctrinated view that is dangerous and false. It’s a lie. Critical race theory is a very racist worldview… [that should] never be influenced in our society as it is today at every level.”
