Religious people always like to cry out about Christians being persecuted. Christians in the majority Christian nation the United States are baying about religious persecution because one of them was jailed for not doing the job she was elected to do.
Yet the actions carried out by this school, as far as I can tell, are legal. The school is able to turn away a student because of the s*xuality of her parents, not because of anything the girl has done. Treating others differently based on who they are as people is discrimination, as far as I’m aware.
So I would like to know how a class of people being persecuted can get away with such an action? Those doing the persecution must not be doing a very good job.
A five year old girl (name withheld) was kicked out of Mt Erie Christian School in San Diego because her parents are lesbian.
The girl had attended pre school and summer camps at the school, but mere days before the start of the term, the parents were informed their daughter could not attend the school.
They were informed the school could not accept their daughter any longer because they do not ‘condone homos*xuality’
The two parents, Sheena and LaShaune, said they were devastated at the news. Sheena attended a meeting where the decision was communicated to them.
“I didn’t finish the conversation with them when they took us in the room because I just, I didn’t want to look at them any longer,” she told television station 10news, which investigated the story.
“What does our family life have to with anyone else? No one’s going to be in danger.”
