School threatens to expel eight year old girl with boy haircut

FOREST, Virginia - Eight year old Sunnie Kahle was told by Timberlake Christian School that she isn't adhering to the "biblical values" they hold dear, just because of the way she looks.

The school sent a letter to her parents stating, in part, "We believe that unless Sunnie as well as her family clearly understand that God has made her female and her dress and behavior need to follow suit with her God-ordained identity, that TCS is not the best place for her future education.”

Aside from the blatant sexism, what about Genesis 1:27 which says "God created everyone in his own image." So much for that, right? Because this eight year old girl is not feminine enough for them, she won't be able to return to school next year.

Here's another Bible passage the school should consider: Matthew 7:1 simply states "Do not judge, or you too will be judged."

You can't pick and choose which parts of the Bible you feel like following. Just as many homophobic Christians point out Leviticus 20:13 "Man must not lay with man as he lays with women" but ignore the passage right before that in Leviticus 19:13 which claims it is an abomination to have a haircut.

Lets love one another, support equality, judge not and leave sexism and homophobia in the past.
