Christians Expel Cheerleader for Lesbian Moms



Christian School Expels Girl for Having Gay Parents

ONTARIO, Calif. — A Christian school expelled a 14-year-old student because her parents are lesbians, the school's superintendent said in a letter.

Shay Clark was expelled from Ontario Christian School on Thursday.

"Your family does not meet the policies of admission," Superintendent Leonard Stob wrote to Tina Clark, Shay's biological mother.

School administrators learned of the parents' relationship this week, according to Clark and her partner, Mitzi Gray. After school officials told Clark that her daughter could no longer attend the school, the mother was ordered to remove Shay from cheerleading practice, collect the girl's belongings and leave the property.

The school's policy states that at least one parent cannot engage in practices "immoral or inconsistent with a positive Christian life style such as cohabitating without marriage or in a homosexual relationship," Stob wrote.

Clark and Gray, who have been together 22 years, have two other daughters aged 9 and 19.

Shay and her parents said they will not fight the ruling. Shay will attend public school next week.

Superintendant Leonard Stobe's Statement:
"The school requires that at least one parent be a confessing Christian and active in the local Christian church. In this case, the parent does not meet the criteria by participating in a homosexual relationship. We regret that this relationship was not disclosed at the time of admission..."
