A 3-year-old was kept from enrolling at a religious-based school because he has two fathers, according to a letter sent by the school.
Action 7 News got a copy of the letter that Hope Christian School sent to the family.
It says in part: “Same gender couples are inconsistent with scriptural lifestyle and biblical teachings,” and "Home life doesn't reflect the school's belief of what a biblical family lifestyle is.”

The letter also says since the school is private, it is free from "excessive government interference in matters of religion."

The school will receive more than $60,000 in federal tax dollars this school year. That money will be used for educator professional development, according to the state's Public Education Department.
