Christian School Tosses Un Lady Like 8 Yr.
Up until last month, Sunnie Kahl, an eight year old attended, Timberlake Christian School. At least until her grandparents received a letter stating Sunnie needed to dress and associate with her Biblical gender role; elsewise a new school would be more appropriate for the child. The letter in part is below.
“We believe that unless Sunnie and 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,” Bowman wrote in the letter, which was given to WDBJ7 by Thompson.'
Every Bible believing Christian understands God's design for a man and a woman, and that certain things are different. That is to state, there are gender roles; however, an eight year old girl is new to the Christian faith. An eight year old girl, is starting to grow in the Bible. What is stupid, is to expel a child for not dressing to your perception of who she is; to berate a child because her hair does not reach a certain vertebrae on their back. To say she needs to wear a skirt, even though it is not a part of the uniform builds resentment in a child. Thus, it is extremely counterproductive.
Adults especially Christians need to show children love as well as discipline, punishing a child for being a child is nonsensical, and it will reinforce negative behavior. For the love of God, show the love of God!
What is the result to be; compliance? Complience with nonexistent Biblical ideology? Let 's being real, this is despicable. Not to mention, it makes Christians look like savages dictorial bigots!
