Cornerstone Christian Academy in Alberta, Canada, a K-12 school, is being forced by the Battle River School Division chair to stop reading or studying “any Scripture that could be considered offensive to particular individuals” and that includes “any teachings that denigrate or vilify someone’s sexual orientation.”
The school, which receives funding from the Canadian government, has sought legal counsel from Canada’s Justice Centre for Constitutional Freedom (JCCF). The president of JCCF, John Carpay, wrote a letter to the school board trustees outlining problems with its decision. The board, however, has not backed down. “Trustees enjoy the legal right to send their own kids to various schools that align with the parents’ beliefs and convictions,” says Carpay, “but these trustees have no right to impose their own ideology on schools they disagree with.”
