WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) – Myrtle Grove Christian School is clarifying a new policy that could allow them to ban students who support a gay lifestyle.
Another email was sent to parents at the school Wednesday morning. After hearing from parents and several protests, the school removed the phrase "supporting or affirming" from the new policy.
The policy now reads:
An integral part of Myrtle Grove Christian School's mission is to foster spiritual development and a biblical world view in the lives of its students. This includes leading students to develop a biblical understanding of morality and to pursue a life that is governed by the biblical moral code. The school works in partnership with families to achieve these desired outcomes, which necessitates that both the school and home come under the authority of God for the benefit of the student.
