Christian School Maintains Right to Expel Lesbians

On Monday, a California court handed down the ruling that a Christian high school could legally expel students because of an alleged lesbian relationship. Coming from the 4th District Court of Appeal in Riverside is the finding that private religious organizations are not bound by the same anti-discrimination laws as are other businesses.

John McKay, attorney for California Lutheran, says the school’s goal is to educate children based on Christian principles.

Two teens filed a lawsuit claiming they were discriminated against after they were expelled from the Wildomar school in 2005 because of an alleged lesbian relationship. On Tuesday, their attorney could not be reached for comment.
