In Albuquerque, New Mexico, Hope Christian School recently denied enrollment to a 3-year-old boy, because he has two gay fathers, according to a letter sent by the school.
The letter read: "Same gender couples are inconsistent with scriptural lifestyle and biblical teachings. Home life doesn't reflect the school's belief of what a biblical family lifestyle is.”
The school also said, because it is private, it is beyond any "excessive government interference in matters of religion."
According to New Mexico's Public Education Department, the school will receive more than $60,000 in federal tax dollars this school year.
Hope Christian School still qualifies for that money under federal guidelines, which Peter Simonson, of the ACLU, believes is wrong.
Simonson told KOAT-TV: “We don't think agencies that discriminate or use religion to discriminate should be receiving our federal or government funds."
