Scorpitron is reduced to a thin red paste: Will the Christianist Right burn itself out?  Or will they rip asunder this country?


They were weaker in the 1970s than they are now and they're weaker now than they were in the late 80s.

Make of that what you will.

Guess both get a bowl of dicks for yum yums today.


Who you calling a girl, Bub?

And since reading is fundamental, note I said "forced" out, not kicked out, in the same way that if you force an employee  to leave by making their lives miserable rather than outright firing you, you still have the same right to sue them on the grounds that they basically fired you under the concept of "constructive  discharge"

Begoggle: Sounds like the idiots who join an HOA and then run to the media when they break the HOA rules.
Private school, no sympathy.


Which I would agree with except that, at least from this article,  the school's rules are so ambiguous that no one can follow them to the letter.  If it's just a "girls must wear dresses" thing she's not following then OK, but it's "She doesn't look or behave feminine enough for us."

The private school has the right to tell the parents the child must conform to their particular dress code, be it ordained by the writings in the Bible or a daily set of Mickey Mouse ears.  The family equally has the right to tell the school to get stuffed and make another arrangement for the child's education.

The paternal grandmother of my grandkids (my daughter's mother in law) attempted to enroll the grandson in a private Christian school.  They refused him admission until he got a hair cut.  Paternal grandmother called me, asking how to handle it.  "If he doesn't want to cut his hair, find a different school" was my answer.

My mother tried to enroll me in a private Pentecostal school when I was a kid.  I lasted all of three days because i refused to wear dresses.

1.  Send kid to batshat crazy religious school
2.  Get mad when batshat crazy religious school acts batshat crazy
3.  ????
4.  Profit?

This story shouldn't even be news.  The only newsworthy issue here is that there are stupid people out there who are actually surprised when fundamental religious types act all fundamental.

Someone should really remind that Christian school that diversity is strength; but first, make sure some of those administrators aren't married to cousins.

vudukungfu: 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?


Not enough coffee or too much coffee... I can't tell

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?


It's Lynchburg, Va. Jerry Falwell's turf. There are more private Christian schools here than there are Starbucks.

Every one of these stories is another drip eroding Christian credibility

Every time you hear of a Christian acting like a douche in the name of Christianity it affects the rep of all Christians

Doesn't matter whether it's extreme abuse like Westboro Baptists or Catholic priest pedophiles or storm-in-a-teacup stuff like this story, it's all negative PR.

Americans are abandoning churches not just for rational reasons (this Bible makes no sense) but also for emotional reasons (I don't want to be associated with dickwipes)

Private school means they can have all the crazy rules they want. Don't like it? Don't go. This is still, somewhat, a free country.

This has everything to do with school administrators' brainlessness; This is is true for all skools, public and private.  It is the "zero-tolerance" mindset at work.

"TCS is not the best place for her future education."

Wow, a religious person said something that I agree with!  Though, you could drop the words "her future" from that sentence and make it even more applicable.

error 303: I assume they want her to have a Christian education and there aren't many or any other options in the area?


If they are willing to let her do "boy" things, then they don't want her to have a "Christian" education.
 
2014-03-26 02:45:50 PM

Magorn: SO they want her to "conform to her Gender identity" eh?  Well since these folks hold the Bible is literally true and infalliable too, maybe it would be okay if she say like Judith, beheads an enemy king and puts his head on a spike, or drives a tent stake through the head of an enemy general like Jael, or even leads armies into battle and becomes a ruler of a nation like Deborah?

That all sounds AMAZING.

 
2014-03-26 02:50:09 PM
Should they legally be allowed to expel her for acting/dressing too boyish?  Maybe-as many above have stated, it's a private school.  However, we the people have the responsibility to correct this behavior so that the asshats don't take over.  "Freedom of Religion" is running roughshod over those who are not religious or do not follow the correct religion, and it has to stop.

Contrabulous Flabtraption: Private school means they can have all the crazy rules they want. Don't like it? Don't go. This is still, somewhat, a free country.


Except that a lot of people would like to see public schools go the way of the Do-Do and have completely private education.  So then where would you go?
