    For the audacity of wearing a rainbow sweater and cake for her bday. Fuck these type people.

    [​IMG]

    A Christian school in Kentucky is accused of expelling a freshman student after seeing an image of her celebrating her 15th birthday with a rainbow cake and multi-colored sweater.

    Kimberly Alford said officials at Whitefield Academy in Louisville sent her an email last week with the image of her daughter, Kayla, and informed her that Kayla was no longer a student.


    Alford said she filed an appeal with the school, but it was denied.

    "When I called the head of the school to discuss it with him, I was quite emotional," Alford told ABC News in an interview Tuesday. "He told me, 'Kim, the sweater, the cake, it just kind of represents gay pride … when you saw the cake you should have refused it.'"

    Alford said she shared the image on her Facebook page and suspects that someone may have sent a copy of it to the school. She said the image was not intended to represent LGBTQ pride, although her daughter loves all people.

    Whitefield Academy said in a statement to ABC News that Kayla was not expelled "solely for a social media post," and said that she had violated its student code of conduct "numerous times over the past two years."

    "Whitefield Academy is a Christian-based school with a 43-year history of educating students in a learning environment informed by our shared Christian values," the school said in a statement Tuesday. "All parents who enroll their children in our private school know up front that we ask the students to adhere to a lifestyle informed by our Christian beliefs."

    "There are numerous school options in our community for students who do not wish to attend a Christian-based school, and we wish our former student all the best as she finds a learning environment that is right for her," it added.

    Alford admitted that her daughter, who has been a student at Whitefield since the 6th grade, has had trouble following the school's strict rules. She once got in trouble for shaving the sides of her head and was ordered to wear her hair down to cover it up. She was also penalized for having an e-cig on campus, her mother said.

    When asked about her daughter's reaction to the dismissal, she said the teenager felt hurt.

    "She feels judged," Alford said. "It hurts me too because I don't want her to grow up thinking something wrong with her just because she marches to the beat of her own drum."

    Ha, I said the same. Co-worker told me about it. I asked where the school was. As he was looking it up, I guessed Alabama, Mississippi, or Arkansas. He said Kentucky, I said "Yep that's sounds right."

    Students must “adhere to a lifestyle informed by our Christian beliefs”. This is always the part that gets me. Accepting that they believe homosexuality is a sin (I disagree) essentially they are saying you have to be free of sin. And of course the Bible talks about judging others based on their sins...let he who has not sinned blah blah. I mean, being gay isn’t listed in the Ten Commandments, the two “golden rules”, etc. So at worst, it’s pretty fucking far down the list with a couple quotes throughout the thousands of pages of text. I’m assuming they also expel students who are spoiled by their parents which is referenced dozens of times throughout the Bible? I’m sure all their staff has managed to avoid the hundreds of concepts considered a “sin” in the Bible.

    Private schools in most situations were created due to bigotry ,racism and classism. Not surprising.

    Hear people all the time say their kid is in private school because too many blacks are at the public one. Like it’s ok if there a few, but can’t have too many? Fucking bullshit.

    Fucking shitbags

    She's not going to be able to sue them. It's a private school. They're legally allowed to have stupid codes of conduct.

    She's not at all in the wrong here, but why the hell are her parents sending her to that school in the first place?

    It’s a shitty thing, but you’re right. If the school doesn’t except any state or federal funds then a law suit is pointless unless they just want to bring attention the matter.

    Hopefully she scarified a dove and locked herself in a room for 5 days after her period too. Because the Bible wants women to do that too.

    I assumed, but I was just hoping there was an actual god out there for one brief moment

    And her parents were sending her to that school bc public schools are/have been failing because >40ish percent of our population, especially the middle/upper middle class and above, cant fucking stand paying taxes so they gladly pay 10’s of thousands extra for private schools and absurd insurance premiums, so that their children will be better taken care of (Bonus: have an advantage over the poors).

    They just didn’t expect the fine print of capitalism to ever come back and bite good upstanding white folk like them on the ass.

    On her own time too. Not that I would feel much better about it if she got kicked out for wearing the shirt at school but they went out of their way to find a reason to kick her out.

    The parents most likely were not doing any further research beyond what expensive school nearest to me and furthest from danger has the best stats wrt college enrollment.

    Or more likely: where are the children of other well off families in my community going to.

    Obviously, there are exceptions, but most of the time "Christian schools" like this offer a shitty education and students are there because of the religious lean of the curriculum. It's weird to me to take issue with the "rules" no matter how absurd when that's really the only thing unique about the school.

    I doubt that's even the case. Catholic or Episcopal schools, maybe, but normally these "Christian" schools are relatively cheap and exist solely to allow for an evangelical education.

    Sure.

    There are a plethora of reasons why these parents chose to send her kid to that school. None of them really reflect well on them or America.

    My parents pushed me strongly towards an evangelical type college and giving in was probably one of the worst mistakes I've made. Loathed it. She'll look back on this and be pretty happy she got kicked out.
