You’ll know they’re Christians by their love, their love.
KHOU reports that a Houston high school student is claiming that he was forced out of his high school, a private school, because he was gay. The school is owned by the Lutheran Education Association of Houston, and it wasn’t the students who pushed him out.
It was the administration.
Six months ago, the young man named Austin (he asked his last name not be used in the KHOU report) came out as gay. As a result, he says that school officials told him to take down his YouTube channel or face expulsion because the school didn’t support his “lifestyle.”
In the end, he chose to walk.
Austin told KHOU that the principal “brought me into his office and we talked about it.”
Being the understandable individual that he is, the principal “said that in the bible it declares that being a homosexual is a sin and we cannot have you promoting a sinful lifestyle on air to the public and that you’d either have to take down your videos or leave the school.”
It basically amounted to an ultimatum, and he called them on it. KHOU tried to reach the school, as well as the executive director of the Lutheran “Education” Association of Houston, but no calls were returned.
Austin added that he’s not trying to make the school look bad — they’re plenty capable of doing that on their, apparently — but said he’s “sad to know” that what happened to him is still happening in 2015: “I don’t want to be somewhere where I can be kicked out for being gay and being open about it.”
I’m not shocked. Yes, it’s 2015 here — but it’s 1815 somewhere, and right now, that somewhere is apparently Texas.
