Suspended For Going To Prom?

So much for thinking that Christians couldn't get more ridiculous!!

Ohio teen expects to be suspended for trip to prom

FINDLAY, Ohio – An Ohio teenager says he expects to be suspended from a Christian school for attending a public school prom with his girlfriend.

Officials at Heritage Christian School in Findlay had warned 17-year-old Tyler Frost that he would be suspended and prohibited from attending graduation if he went to the Saturday dance. The fundamentalist Baptist school in northwest Ohio forbids dancing, rock music and hand holding.

Frost says he went to the dance because he wanted to experience the prom and didn't think it was wrong.

School officials say he could complete his final exams separately to receive a diploma.

Frost's stepfather says the rules shouldn't apply outside of school and he may take legal action if Frost is suspended.

Yes, because we all know that dancing, rock music, and hand holding is the work of the DEVIL!!

This is so beyond ridiculous!! I do hope that his stepfather does take legal action if he's suspended. He has a right to finish school and graduate just like everyone else. Who did he hurt by attending prom? God? It's not like he had sex with his girlfriend on the middle of the dance floor. And even if he did, what he does is NOT the school's business!!
