Christian School Refuses To Accept Kindergarten Student For A Controversial Reason

In San Diego, California, a five-year-old girl was not allowed to attend kindergarten at Mt. Erie Christian Academy. The private institution does not take any private funds and recently changed its nondiscrimination policy after the Supreme Court ruling on same-sex marriage.

Its updated handbook reads:

“Mt. Erie Christian Academy is a religious, Bible-believing institution providing education in a distinct Christian environment, and it believes that its biblical role is to work in conjunction with the home to mold students to be Christ like. On those occasions in which the atmosphere or conduct within a particular home is counter to or in opposition to the biblical lifestyle that the school teaches, the school reserves the right, within its sole discretion, to refuse admission of an applicant or to discontinue enrollment of a student. This includes, but is not necessarily limited to, living in, condoning or supporting sexual immorality; practicing homosexual lifestyle or alternative gender identity; promoting such practices; or otherwise having the inability to support the moral principles of the school (Leviticus 20:13a; Romans 1:21-27; Matthew 19:4-6; I Corinthians 6:9-20).”

The five-year old’s mother, Shenna (she asked that her last name be withheld) called the policy change “heartbreaking.”

She went on to say “If we knew from the beginning that this was unacceptable, they didn’t condone or believe in this, if it was such a big deal, we would have never started her off there. I would never put my child’s emotional wellbeing in an unstable setting like that.” The child says she misses her friends and teachers.
