A private Lutheran school in California kicked out two girls because these girls were accused of, and apparently later confessed to, being lesbians
. It was taken to court -- oh the American way! -- and the court determined that the school was within it's legal rights to do so.
I do agree that the school should legally have that right, being as it is a private religious school. However, being that it is a Christian school I wonder if they should make use of that right.
The article didn't say that the girls were causing trouble, or that even they refused to repent. The girls were caught after they had posted on their Myspace -- be careful what you post kiddos! -- that they were in love with one another.
My thoughts on the matter are that it would have been a good opportunity to show the girls the love of Christ and perhaps offer counseling rather than to kick them out of the school.
I also realize that it is California, and it was reported in a San Francisco newspaper and the story is likely very biased, but, based on what I've said here, and what the article says, what do you think they should have done?
What should the school have done in this situation? Would you have made the same decision? Who decides what is acceptable in private Christian schools?
