The truism “Get broke, go broke” is not just for corporations like Disney that lose $billions by succumbing to moonbattery. It also applies to private schools, like one in Kansas City that has been forced to close:
Urban Christian Academy is a private, K-8 school with an enrollment of 100 that describes itself as providing “a tuition-free, high-quality, Christ-centered education for low-income students.”
Not always so Christ-centered. Last year, it added this to its website:
“We are an affirming school. We stand with the LGBTQIA+ community and believe in their holiness. We celebrate the diversity of God’s creation in all its varied and beautiful forms.”
The liberal educrats in charge regard perverted sexual activities as a manifestation of God’s creation that should be promoted to children.
According to the school, that update prompted donors to stop contributing, many of them citing their interpretation of Christianity as the reason. Now, UCA has announced it will close at the end of the school year due to the loss of financial support.
Their “interpretation of Christianity” probably includes reference to the Bible, throughout which homosexuality is strictly proscribed, not to mention Luke 17:2.
Just as the main point of a Christian church is to provide moral mooring in a culture rotted through with degenerate moonbattery, the point of private school is to provide an alternative to the depraved filth taught in public schools. Why would anyone donate to Urban Christian Academy or any other “Christian” school that subjects children to LGBT indoctrination?
Kalie Callaway-George, UCA’s executive director and co-founder, said this new language “is kind of what started the backlash from our donor base, which we anticipated. It was just that we anticipated a 50% loss in funding and made adjustments for that. We had an 80% loss in funding and that was too much to overcome.”
They were willing to present the middle finger to half of their donor base on behalf of the liberal agenda. But they thought the other half were corrupt or apathetic enough to go along. God bless the former donors for proving them wrong.
While Callaway-George bleats politically correctly about “conversations around injustice and looking at marginalized communities,” those who follow a religion other than wokeism have provided feedback like the following:
“Do not call yourself a Christian school if you are affirming sin. Jesus died to set us free from sin, not so we can die in it. You abuse kids by telling them sin is good. You are wicked.”
People still get it.
