This Christian School Isn't So Christian
What would Jesus do? Throw some little girl out of school because "Heather Has Two Mommies"? Seema Mehta writes in the LA Times that a "Christian" school in Ontario, CA, expelled a 14-year-old girl because her moms are lesbians:

Freshman Shay Clark, 14, was told to leave Ontario Christian High School after administrators learned of her parents' relationship this week.

"Your family does not meet the policies of admission," Supt. Leonard Stob wrote to Tina Clark, Shay's biological mother. The policy, he added, states that at least one parent cannot engage in practices "immoral or inconsistent with a positive Christian life style [sic] such as cohabitating without marriage or in a homosexual relationship."

The letter included two checks refunding $3,415, Shay's tuition for half the school year and an art fee. Attempts to reach Stob were unsuccessful.

Clark and her partner, Mitzi Gray, have been together for 22 years, and have three daughters; the others are ages 9 and 19. Clark and Gray said school officials learned of their relationship after Shay and another cheerleader were reprimanded for talking to the crowd during a football game Sept. 16.

Hmmm, Clark and Gray have been together 22 years? Seems the lesbos could teach the heteros a few things about commitment. Perhaps that's why it's really important to a lot of people that we don't legalize gay marriage.

And of course they escorted the girl off campus in the middle of cheerleading practice. Hey, embarrass a child publicly - that's the Christian way to teach those evil lesbians a lesson, eh?
