WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — Myrtle Grove Christian School is adopting a new Biblical Morality Policy that could keep some families out.
According to a letter signed by Head of School Stacey Miller, the school reserves the right to refuse admission or kick out a student “if the atmosphere or conduct within a particular home or the activities of the student are counter to or are in opposition to the biblical lifestyle the school teaches.”
The letter says that includes homosexual or bisexual activity.
“I started crying over it, because it truly broke my heart,” former student Jenna Ingram said. “They are being taught hate is what it really boils down to.”
Ingram is gay. She says the church sees many lifestyles as sinful. She’s not sure why the school is targeting and shunning homosexuals.
“I praise the same God as they do. I read the same Bible,” Ingram said. “I practice most of the same morals, and I consider myself to be a Christian. Yes, I am also gay, and I think God loves me no less for that.”
Ingram says she used to speak highly of Myrtle Grove Christian School, but won’t anymore. She plans to marry her fiancee next October.
Officials at Myrtle Grove Christian School said they would only respond to questions through e-mail. We have not heard back from administrators.
