Principal expels gay student because “Jesus would want me to”

Sep 2, 2020

A Christian school in Texas has expelled a student for coming out as gay, and the school principal is defending his decision saying that Jesus wanted him to expel the student.

Devin Bryant, 17, has attended the Covenant Christian Academy in Dallas since he was in kindergarten, but last month his mother Consolata got a call from the new headmaster, Tony Jeffrey, telling her that Devin won’t be allowed to attend the school for his senior year because he’s gay.

“Are you a Christian?” she asked him on the phone. “Jesus would not do what you are doing.”

“I’m doing what Jesus would want me to do,” he replied.

  • Somehow these “Christians” in positions of power make it a point to behave as nasty as they possibly can. But through their behaviour they show their true colours of darkness.

    They are probably praying to their God Of Darkness to have him stop rainbows from happening.

  • “I’m doing what Jesus would want me to do,” he replied.

    Whatever happened to that good old sin called pride? It’s pride to think that he’s on the same level as Jesus and God and know what they like and what they don’t like. Pride is a sin.

    The Bible is certainly clear on the issue of homosexuality but then on the other hand, Jesus, if he even existed at all, showed no interest in women as sexual partners and spent all his time hanging out with men. I see no evidence that he was a straight dude at all.

  • He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone at her. John 8: 7

    They only read the bits which allow them to use their power for cruelty, exclusivity and domination.

    The Pharisee stood and prayed thus with himself, God, I thank thee, that I am not as other men are, extortioners, unjust, adulterers, or even as this publican. Luke 18: 11

    They don’t get this bit either, or don’t want to!

  • He [new headmaster Jeffreys] said that the school has “deeply held religious beliefs” that include that idea that “the expression of human sexuality is appropriate only within the boundaries of a marital relationship between one man and one woman.”

    It would be difficult–if not impossible–to establish how many of the families of the students are strictly adhering to the marital relationship, but it’s a safe bet that many would fall short.

    That said, I think Jeffreys is within his rights as headmaster of a privately-run school to establish and enforce (however discriminately) the guidelines. The parents need to decide whether or not the trade-off is worth it, and they either agree to those terms or they find another school.

    Of course, there is the matter of how those schools are funded and whether any of that funding comes out of my taxes, but that is another subject.
