Dr. Steven Hotze’s Testimony on Parental Authority and Gender Policy Katy ISD School Board Meeting

August 28, 2023

Good evening, school board members. I’m Dr. Steven Hotze, CEO of the Hotze Health & Wellness Center here in Katy, and my medical building pays over  $55,000 a year in Katy ISD school taxes. I’m here to support the proposed Parental Authority and Gender Policy. 


This policy will put a stop to the Katy schools’ promotion and propagandizing of the trans philosophy, which allows teachers and children to lie about their sex gender. It will also put a stop to allowing boys access to girls’ bathrooms, showers and locker rooms, and prevent boys from competing in girls’ sports. It will also prohibit teachers and children from changing their names and personal pronouns. It will also give parents the right to know if teachers are trying to transition and groom their children.  


God created two genders, two sexes, male and female. There are bulls and heifers, stallions and mares, men and women. This is a biological fact. It is a Biblical truth. “God made them male and female.” (Genesis 1:27)  


The idea that a man can claim to be a woman, or a woman to be a man, is totally absurd. It’s a lie. Everyone know this. For those who think that they can choose their gender, it is indicative that they have a reprobate, perverted and morally degenerate mind.  


It is high time that we stand up to protect our children from being groomed by teachers and others to accept the perverted lifestyles promoted by the LGBTQIA. The IA stands for pedophilia. A pedophile is a person who sexualizes children, and that is what the trans agenda promotes. You have a responsibility to stop this and protect the children. It is those who are promoting the transgender lifestyle who are leading these children to commit suicide.


Jesus stated that, “Whoever causes one of these little ones who believe in me to sin, it would be better for him to have a heavy millstone around his neck, and to be drowned in the depth of the sea.” (Matthew 18:6)


Isaiah 5:20-23 teaches, “Woe to those who call evil good and good evil, who substitute darkness for light and light for darkness, who substitute bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter, who justify the wicked and take away the rights of those who do right.”


You are unable to change what God put into your DNA. You are unable to transcend God’s creation no matter how hard you try. This transgender movement is satanic. It is time for Christians to stand up and boldly speak the truth. 


This transgender LGTBQIA philosophy has no place in school or in society. Two plus two does not equal transgender, it equals four. We need to get back to the basics in education, reading, writing and arithmetic. 


Katy ISD should lead the way in protecting children from the pedophilia and transgender movement that is grooming children to participate in these perverted lifestyles.
