Up For A Little Controversial Conversation?

I found this story thru a news site I visit each morning. I'll reserve my thoughts for now and simply allow you to give it a read. Are you willing to contribute your thoughts? I'll chime in later.


  • I'm responding to that article immediately after reading which means my passion will be doing the talking and not my brain.

    The thought and feeling that strikes me most after reading that is great sadness. What sort of message is that to send to the unsaved world? That is not love! I can not imagine my Jesus casting someone out from His presence because of their sin. Jesus came to heal the sick not the healthy!

    By expelling that student, that Christian school sent a message to the community the community of hatred and exclusivism. While homosexuality is sin, so is lying, unrighteous anger, slander, and countless other sins of which I am sure that principal is guilty. Who is he to judge one sin worse than another.

    Like I said, I'm shooting from the hip here so I apologize if my words are unorganized or offensive to anyone. I am just saddened by that account.

  • I am saddened that it is the child who suffers from being denied in the school!

  • This article really upsets me, and I'm "shooting from the hip" also before I get a chance to think about it! While I'm very upset for the child, and very upset at the school, how come the school didn't know about this before they admitted her? If they knew, and just hoped they wouldn't have to address it, shame on them. But if the parents were not forthcoming on their application??........well then, shame on the parents. No matter who is to blame, I think this message is just a tragedy for the Christian community. This is not how Jesus would act!

  • Well... me on the other hand has been thinking about this since a few moments after it had been posted and I still may go off (good thing I have waited!!)

    I do not understand how the Superintendent thinks that it is good for the child to be kicked out of school. I understand that Paul says to expel the immoral brother, but this girl is not the one to suffer the consequences. How is this girl to learn the love of Jesus if she is shunned because of the acts of her parents. My parents are divorced... would they kick me out of school too??

  • Premature send... oops...

    This reminds me of the horrible guy in (I think) Kansas who makes it his business to go around protesting homosexuals... with signs that are the most untrue statements of "God Hates..." God does not hate the sinners, now, the sin on the other hand is a different story... Jesus would embrace the sinners and who is not a sinner among us??

    And let me finish by saying... where does God's grace fit into the school's policies??

    Yea... I still spouted off...
