Christian school gets really clever

The school adminstrators recognize that it's illegal to refuse entry to the school based on the attitude of students about what sex they choose; so they came up with a clever plan:

Let them enter the school; but then turn them right around and walk them out the door based on what their parent's agree to before they apply.

.

Of course, they feel there'll be no need to explain to federal judges where they found this plan in the Bible, as just 'knowing' what God meant is enough proof of "our right to hold to the truths of God’s Word" Their holy judgement is enough to try to bully a sectarian government into submission.

The idea is to get rid of 'Pro-Choice' of parental choice in favor of church official's choice.

"The principal at St. John’s Lutheran School in Baraboo sent a letter to parents demanding they provide students’ birth certificates and sign an agreement that lists being LGBT as one of the “transgressions” a child can be expelled for.

 

Because the school receives federal funding for its lunch, transportation and No Child Left Behind programs, administrators can’t deny admission to students based on discrimination.

 

“If we cannot legally refuse students who are struggling with homosexuality or gender identification, we must maintain our right to hold to the truths of God’s Word,” Breitkreutz wrote in the letter obtained by the New Republic. “In other words, although we do not have the right to refuse admittance to people choosing an outwardly sinful lifestyle, we do maintain the right to discipline and dismiss students for these choices.”

    Hi Paul…we’re a week away from Memorial Day weekend.
    " The idea is to get rid of ‘Pro-Choice’ of parental choice in favor of church official’s choice. "
    Bingo !
    Looks like this may head to the Supreme Court. Last week as you recall the SC handed down a ruling about contraception and the Catholic church. Seems the SC will let the local states handle each individual claims.
    In this case the same may happened here…not all will go with the rulings based on religious rules.

      As you’re able to equate contraception with preference.

      Many parents want their children in a religious school who aren’t fooled by claims of individuals that they have the undefined and unavailable ‘Word of God’ that those ‘leaders’ claim they know exists. There’s frequent talk of God, but the few statements in the Bible ABOUT that word are circular in that they say the Word of God exists pointing to the collection of writers of the Bible, but isn’t available as text without the interpretation that God wrote using the writers as tools. That’s one reason it can’t be presented as hearsay evidence in a secular court.
      .
      Different church leaders, not having a definite defined ‘Word’ have interpretations of writers in the Bible that have no definite statements upon the words claimed to be against human acts; but few will use it to divide congregations for purposes of segregation and prejudice.
      .
      It’s true that parents will have the choice of not enrolling their child in the only religious school related to their faith available in their area. The result is segregation so the child no longer can have the ‘benefit’ of learning the prejudice of their local church.

    This is why I homeschool. If we had a church school close and I could afford it I would send my granddaughter. As a Christian I have certain things I would like my child to learn and then when she is older as her aunts and uncle she can make up her own mind on things. Till then it is my job to keep her safe. I do not think this world is a very good place for anyone anymore, but my faith is that you hate the sin not the sinner and also you never judge anyone. I have a right to my faith as do other people have their rights. Why would anyone with a gay or transgender child want to put their child in a place where others do not accept this? To proof a point at their child’s expense? Church School and homeschoolers should not be getting any money from the state or government if they are then need to follow the State and Government rules to allow anyone in. just my view

      Filling out the application form should be enough to deter a parent with a transgender child from entering a prejudiced situation.
