(Fox News) A Christian school expelled a 14-year-old student because her parents are lesbians, the school's superintendent said in a letter...
"Your family does not meet the policies of admission," Superintendent Leonard Stob wrote to Tina Clark, Shay's biological mother.
Apparently it seems that the parents did not read fine print when sending their daughter to this school as it required parents to uphold Christian values and not engage in immoral behavior "such as cohabitating without marriage or in a homosexual relationship." The parents of the girl who was expelled have decided not to fight the ruling and are sending their daughter to public school.
(Fox News) The district refunded Clark and Gray $3,415 Â Shay's tuition for half the year plus an art fee.
Clark and Gray, who have been together 22 years, have two other daughters aged 9 and 19.
It seems that when it comes to deciding who may attend their classes, religious schools are often exempted from the same regulations that govern public schools, so any legal action pursued would probably be meet with little sympathy from the courts. As long as they are not receiving tax payer funds then there is little reason for the ACLU to step in. After all, they are a Christian school teaching Christian principals--shouldn't they be allowed to decide what type of students they admit?
