Not saying the school isn't nuts.  But guardian decided to send the girl to fanatical religious school.

Private school.  Attendance by choice.  Non-story.

I think Obama and his looney-left crowd have been doing an awesome of destroying our country.

That Guy Jeff: error 303: That Guy Jeff: lennavan: We believe that unless Sunnie as well as her family clearly understand that God has made her female and her dress and behavior need to follow suit with her God-ordained indentity, that TCS is not the best place for her future education."

This girl is being taught to express herself however she wishes, rather than what a fictional book instructs.  They're not wrong, TCS is definitely not the best place for her future education.

Yeah. That's what I think every time something like this comes up: "Why would you want to continue sending your kid there? They saved you the trouble of finding out they are human shiat AFTER you've already wasted a lot of time there."

I assume they want her to have a Christian education and there aren't many or any other options in the area?

But the school is either a) horribly misinterpreting their religion so they shouldn't consider it the "right" form of Christianity or b) correctly interpreting their religion so that god himself is basically saying "get out of this school". Either way, even as religious nuts they shouldn't even want to send their kid there.


Rationally I agree, but I think it's possible their opinion could be "Well, we like everything about the schools except for this policy."

I dunno man, I just work here. Religious nuts are nutty.

Deuteronomy 22:5 - "The woman shall not wear that which pertaineth unto a man, neither shall a man put on a woman's garment: for all that do so are abomination unto the Lord thy God."

Even in Jewish law, 8 year old girl is not a woman (hint: bat mitzvah).

Just sexy her up.
Send her to pageant school.
Teach her how to act like a little attention whore, or just a whore.
That's what you farking dead-guy-on-a-stick lickers like, right?
Dress her up like a little whore and tell her how pretty she is.
Groom her for her life as a happy little homemaker and teach her how to stay barefoot, pregnant, and in the kitchen, where the little slut for jesus belongs. Teach her to be subservient to men who judge and choose who may or may not be part of your religion because they have whims, and urges. That's how your little babby raping racket works, right?

I'll need to double check, but iirc part of the evidence against her was her wearing men's clothing.


She was French, they were fighting the British, she got caught by the Brits and they executed her.  Everything else was just excuses.

Lynchburg ain't West Virginia. It's not even Western VA by most folks' standards -- it's pretty much the center of Central Va.

But culturally, and especially theologically, it tends to run with the much deeper South.

Think Jerry Falwell. Think Liberty University. Yeah, that Lynchburg.

Not that everybody there follows this line -- just that there are an awful lot of people who do.

The scary thing (one of many) is that this school has been chugging along on this set of standards for a very, very long time -- nearly 50 years. It makes me sad to think of all the kids they've messed up during that time.

Maybe they are maybe they are not. If they are applying the dress code equally then they are in the right. If they are just applying it to her they are assholes. Don't expect someone to change the rules because you can't comply.

Yes... because in the last few decades... this would totally have been appropriate in a PUBLIC school as well.
There is a lot more going on here than just the length of her hair.

a CHRISTIAN SCHOOL telling a girls parents if she doesn't conform to her role a little bit... (ie.. dress SOMEWHAT like a girl and stop running around trying to have girlfriends...) then perhaps a Christian school is not where she should be...
and suddenly CHRISTIANS are the nutjobs.
it's stupid like this that makes my day :)

*DING*!

Fark this school indeed.  I wore jeans and t shirts and had short hair until I was probably 14, then only the hair got longer, the jeans got lower. (it was hip hugger season, the original ones).  I also wore pants, a basic shirt and same short hair to the hellfire and brimstone baptist church we attended at the time.

And if a preacher who considers pounding on the lecturn and SCREAMING the "word of god" didn't call me out on it, fark them.

/recovered from the baptist thing

It's a private school so they can do whatever they want, right?

And of course privatizing all education will solve all of our educational problems, as long as little girls don't dress like little boys.

What, girls not allowed to wear pants at school there or something? Frickkin lame. I was a tomboy growing up, but still liked girly things too, same as this kid. What a load of crap...

CheekyMonkey: I totally remember that part in the Bible, where Jesus said to the little girl "Get thee away from me, biatch, until thou exchangest thy pants for a frock."


They didn't wear them back then, so I am not too surprised. Pants are from pagan societies like the Persians, Celts, etc. Everyone in the bible was dead for centuries before it was occasionally used for ceremony purposes amongst rulers, and over a millennium dead before they started being used by other people. So really, wearing pants is an unchristian act, full of pagan rites, and we should revert back to how the early founds of the Church would have it.
