Christian Preschool Expels Child of Gay Couple

Note: As a victim of gun violence, I am writing just to keep my mind off of the tragedy in Connecticut. This will likely be my last post today. I am in treatment for PTSD and today I am in a complete haze. I can smell the cordite.

According to court records in Albuquerque, New Mexico, a Christian preschool accepted a child and then booted him out when it found out that his parents are a gay male couple. The plaintiffs, a gay male couple, claim that the school, in Albuquerque, accepted their 3-year-old son this year, then sent them a denial letter.

The couple, Joseph Romero and John Keelin, have now sued Hope Christian Schools in Bernalillo County Court. They claim that the school violated New Mexico's Human Rights Act.

The allegations seem to have been confirmed by the school in a letter dated June 13, 2012 to plaintiffs' attorney. The letter indicated that the school denied admission to plaintiffs' son because plaintiffs were a same gender couple and that, as a result, their home was inconsistent with the school's beliefs.

Aside from the legalities, the sheer stupidity is appalling. What kind of threat to Christianity can a three-year-old possibly pose?
