EDMONTON, Alberta — A Christian school in Canada says that it is shocked after recently being told by the local school board that it should not teach any “offensive” Bible verses to children, particularly those those that refer to homosexuality.
Cornerstone Christian Academy in Kingman, approximately an hour outside of the provincial capital of Edmonton, says that it was approached by the Battle River School Division and asked to remove 1 Corinthians 6:9-11 from its student handbook.
“Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the Kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind, nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God,” the Scripture reads.
“And such were some of you, but ye are washed, but ye are sanctified, but ye are justified in the name of the Lord Jesus, and by the Spirit of our God.”
“We asked them to not include it, but perhaps use a different piece of Scripture,” Diane Hutchinson with Battle River told Metro News.
