Christian School Tells Gay Couple To Break Up Or Their Son Will Be Expelled

A private Christian high school in a northern province of South Africa has told a married lesbian couple that they must break up or their son will be expelled.
Legally married Samantha (27) and Kally Mabe (26) told The Star newspaper that they were called to a meeting with the principal of Secunda Highveld Christian School and were told their homosexuality was problematic. They were also accused of falsifying the information stating their sexual orientation in the school’s application letter.  “We never hid the fact that (our son) has two mothers and I filled in my details under the section in the form that asks for mother’s details and Sam filled in the area that said ‘Father/Guardian’, but filled in her title as Mrs,” the boy’s biological mother Kally said. The couple was initially summoned to the meeting last month, after the child told the teacher he had two mothers. Later, another meeting was called with a pastor present. “The pastor said if they had known we were a lesbian couple, they would never have allowed our son in the school.”
Provincial authorities say they will look into the matter even though the school is private. (Tipped by JMG reader Harry)
