A New York Times reporter’s tweet on a viral hashtag called #ExposeChristianSchools has gone viral itself, creating a firestorm of reaction with many of the comments in support of Christian education.
In the original tweet, Times reporter Dan Levin says he’s writing about the #ExposeChristianSchools hashtag and says, “I’d like to hear about your experience and its impact on your life.”
I’m a New York Times reporter writing about #exposechristianschools. Are you in your 20s or younger who went to a Christian school? I’d like to hear about your experience and its impact on your life. Please DM me.

After a number of tweets questioned his apparent slant, he changed his tweet Friday morning saying he’s interested in positive accounts as well. “I’m writing about the response to it and want to hear about all experiences, including positive stories/impact about your time in school.”
There’s been a lot of negative media coverage lately on Christian schools. The Left became angry when it learned Vice President Mike Pence’s wife, Karen Pence, would be teaching at a Christian school that adheres to biblical principles on sexuality. Consequently, activists for the LGBTQ agenda started targeting Christian schools using the #ExposeChristianSchools hashtag.
The mainstream media’s rush to judgment against a group of teens from Covington Catholic High School after a fabricated incident in Washington, DC only served to escalate the attacks against Christian education.
CBN News reached out to Levin, whose Twitter account says he covers young America “and the issues they care about.” He has not yet responded to our inquiry.
So far, more than 9,000 people have responded to Levin’s tweets.
