(Natural News) A public, K-12 Christian Academy in Alberta, Canada, has been told to stop teaching certain parts of the Bible, which can be deemed as “offensive” by certain groups of people. Cornerstone Christian Academy (CCA) received a warningfrom the Battle River School Division (BRSD) to discontinue referring to various parts of Scripture in the Bible, claiming that these passages violate fundamental human rights. Laurie Skori, CCA’s board chair told that the BRSD has “broken our trust” by talking to the media. She also said that this issue was made merely to “create controversy.”

The offensive passage comes from Corinthians 6:9-10, which reads, “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.” In some versions, the term “effeminate” was replaced with “men who have sexual relations with other men.”

In a terse e-mail exchange between the two involved parties, the school board concluded that the school should remove “any scripture that could be considered offensive to particular individuals….[particularly] any teachings that denigrate or vilify someone’s sexual orientation.” Moreover, these texts “should not be read or studied in school.”
