The title is not intended to be a slam on Christianity. It's intended to be a slam on the people who run this "Christian" school who think it is entirely appropriate to kick a 14 year old girl out of their school because they don't like who her mom is in love with. Even if you buy the whole "homosexuality is immoral" thing, which you shouldn't, this does nothing to help the girl out. She has no control over who her mom likes. If you are a good Christian and you think that one of your girls has a messed up family, what do you do? Offer her continuing support in a loving atmosphere? Be there for her to make sure she grows up healthy and educated? No! You boot her from the school. I love this concept of "infinite grace." I hope these people get made fun of nationally for several weeks. Here's the article from AP gathered from Yahoo news.
I should add that of course the school has the legal right to do this. They boot children out of schools who don't follow the dress code. Nazis have the legal right to rally at the City Courthouse each Saturday. I am saying that it is morally wrong to do so.
ONTARIO, Calif. - A 14-year-old student was expelled from a Christian school because her parents are lesbians, the school's superintendent said in a letter.
Shay Clark was expelled from Ontario Christian School on Thursday.
"Your family does not meet the policies of admission," Superintendent Leonard Stob wrote to Tina Clark, the girl's biological mother.
Stob wrote that school policy requires that at least one parent may not engage in practices "immoral or inconsistent with a positive Christian life style, such as cohabitating without marriage or in a homosexual relationship," The Los Angeles Times reported in Friday's edition.
Stob could not be reached for comment by the newspaper. Shay and her parents said they won't fight the ruling.
School administrators learned of the parents' relationship this week after Shay was reprimanded for talking to the crowd during a football game, Tina Clark said.
Clark and her partner have been together 22 years and have two other daughters, ages 9 and 19.
