(Worthy News) – A private church-run elementary school has filed a federal lawsuit against the state of Maryland for pulling it from a school voucher program that’s designed to benefit low-income students. And the state didn’t stop there, demanding the school also pay back thousands of dollars for its previous participation in the program.
The Baltimore Sun reports Bethel Christian Academy, a private Christian school located in Savage, MD, says state officials unfairly threw it out of a school voucher program because of its religious beliefs.
State administrators responded saying the state can’t allow taxpayer money to go to any institution – religious or otherwise – that discriminates against students because of their sexual orientation. [ Source: CBN News (Read More…) ]
