Canadian board votes to shut Christian school for teaching Bible verses
ALBERTA, CANADA – An Alberta Christian school that clashed with its school division over teaching certain Bible verses may be forced to close its doors.
The controversy began around one year ago when Battle River School Division asked the school to stop teaching certain Bible verses referencing sexuality. The school division trustees said that they believed the verses could contravene Alberta’s human rights code.
The school, Cornerstone Christian Academy, argues the division’s attempts at censoring biblical references in the curriculum are illegal and wants the courts to stop the closure.
According to their own website, Cornerstone Christian Academy is a K-12 Christian School in Kingman (Alberta, Canada) that is operated under a partnership with Cornerstone Christian Academy Society and Battle River School Division to provide students with learning in a Christian environment.
