I am a Christian…a born again, Bible thumping, Jesus freak. And so, like many, I've been entranced by the events at Myrtle Grove Christian Academy.

If you haven't heard, the head of the school told parents that they'll soon be required to sign a morality clause that stipulates if they are not committed to living a biblical life, then their kids can no longer attend the school.

The letter specifically mentions homosexuality. What it doesn't mention, but maybe it covers, heterosexuals shacking up, a dad who drinks too much, or a divorced mom. The Bible calls them all sin, so maybe those kids will be kicked out too.

I get it. You can't have a child learning one thing at school and another at home. The policy makes sense. In fact I could almost support it……ALMOST.

It's just that the Bible gets in the way. In the book of Ezekiel, we are told that the "child should not bear the inequity of the father." Which is to say no matter how bad the sin of the parent, you can't hold the kid responsible. And make no mistake; this policy is not punishing the parents. It's punishing the kids.

Christian schools should be committed to teaching the Bible. I have no problem with that. But I do have a problem with a Christian administrator who apparently doesn't know the Bible.
