In addition to being a massive educational failure due to huge gaps in the curriculum. ACE Curriculum (Accelerated Christian Education), the curriculum currently used at Legacy was created exclusively for the use of “Segregation Academies” in the Deep South. #legacyofabuse
The authors of the curriculum are white supremests. They glorify the confederacy and southern slavers as “godly.”
Indiginous people are called pagans and sav***s.
The comic strips throughout indoctrinate students that black and other children of different races should live in different communities, and attend different schools then the white children.

Segregation Academies…
In 2012, while still pastoring at City Centre Church, I took my concerns about ACE all the way to the top of our denomination (CFCM). Now Minister’s Network Canada. There was no appetite to listen to my concerns about both the curriculum and the abuse fostered in ACE schools.
In 2013 I faced a heresy trial. Mainly for spouting teachings by @timkellernyc — hardly a heretic. lol. But in large part my politics and criticism of ACE made me a liability and a target.
I have receipts, including the hate mail I received from a lay leader in the church. The then church administrator instigated the heresy trial. He now pastors in La Ronge, and is still on the board of CCC.
During the heresy trial they threw all the mud at me they could. Nothing really stuck. Multiple evangelical pastors in the city spoke out to back me up.
Through a bunch of manipulation they still managed to condemn me during their “trial”

I have paid a high price for speaking out against abuse. Not backing down now.
The stories of abuse have been horrific. I am in counselling dealing with my own trauma from my years at Legacy.
At four years old the then principal screamed at me and a bunch of other kids that he was gonna beat us black and blue. Friends of mine all through elementary school were beat almost weekly. Sometimes multiple times a week.
I became super compliant. As a coping mechanism. Because of the fear, psychological abuse, and emotional abuse. I was terrified I was gonna get beat too.
I buried my needs, my feelings and my personality. To be safe. To cope. To survive the impending threat of physical abuse.
I worked to become what was expected of me. Compliant. Submissive.
I did speak up sometimes in highschool. Challenged teachers and the system. Stood up for kids the teachers were prone to especially pick on. I leveraged my stays as a “good kid” and of course a PK. Called teachers out on bullying behaviours where I could.
Sometimes it worked. Other times not so much. I tended to bargain with the system in hopes for change. I graduated with the highest most prestigious awards in the school. My name is still in their trophy case multiple times.
I must have filled KS & LB’s desks with multiple letters telling them their rules were unfair. Or unjustly biased against certain ones of my fellow students. Lol. I called my principal out for a build faced lie about the curriculum two weeks before my grade 12 grad.
For years after they liked me. I rocked the boat. Stood up against overt bullying. I had privilege within the system due to who my parents were. That combined with compliance as a survival mechanism shielded me against the worst of the physical abuses. I know that.
My abuse was mostly emotional and phycological. Sheer terror of beatings and other phsycological and emotional abuse is my primary memory during that time.
Something snapped when I turned 26. I went through my first deconstruction. Joined twitter and denounced ACE.
That ended poorly. Lol. Hate mail. Demands that I be summarily fired. Racist things were said about my first wife and our children. I fought back cuz I had other pastor in the city backing me up. Across the spectrum in multiple denominations.
I still was condemned. I resigned without notice.
Best decision I ever made. It has been a journey on the other side. But I got out.

I GOT OUT. That is my story for now. Will ponder sharing more details some time in the future.
