In the latest development of the new unChrist-like behavior of Christian schools, a Lutheran private school in Riverside, California has expelled two girls suspected of being lesbians. Don’t worry, though, the girls are fighting back with a possible precedent setting lawsuit.
The lawsuit alleges that the school’s principal, Gregory Bork, called the girls into his office and grilled them on their sexual orientation and “coerced” one girl to say she loved the other one.
The next day, the suit says, Bork told the girls’ parents they could not stay at the school with “those feelings.” In a Sept. 12 letter to the parents, Bork acknowledged officials had seen no physical contact between the girls but said their friendship was “uncharacteristic of normal girl relationships and more characteristic of a lesbian one.”
He sounds more like our high school science teacher/girl’s volleyball coach.
The case is important because it could establish in the courts whether or not a private school can exclude students based on something as fundamental as sexuality. In the meantime, let’s hope this Principal Bork spends a little more time running his school and a little less time creepily obsessing over what two teenage girls do on their own time.
