A mother of two is at odds with the private Christian school her children attend after her daughters were expelled from the school once it was discovered that the girls have two different fathers. The school informed the single mother that since she was “living in sin,” her two daughters were no longer welcome at the school.
Summer Grant, who lives in Ohio, was shocked when she was informed that her children were expelled from Chapel Hill Christian School, a school her two daughters, Summara and Summaia, have attended for years.
To make matters worse, the girls were expelled with only 30 days left in the school year, which could force the two girls to be held back a grade. Grant spoke to WYKC about what the lead pastor of the private school told her. “He said it was many reasons and the main one was because I was not married and my children had different fathers.”
The Daily Mail reported that Grant recorded her conversation with Pastor Wilson, who is an administrative pastor at the school. The two spoke on a range of topics before Wilson explained that the main reasoning he is expelling her two children is because she is “committing adultery.”
“There’s 10 commandments and committing adultery is part of that,” Pastor Wilson reportedly said. “It’s not that they should not go to the school it’s that they can’t go to the school here.”
Wilson’s children having two different fathers has been a real issue since the topic was broached last July during a parent/teacher conference where she was given tips on how she could improve her home life.
“As a Christian you are not supposed to judge,” she told WYKC. “You shouldn’t have affected these kids education over that.”
In fact, Grant claims she is not the only parent who has children with two different fathers. She questions why she is being singled out.
After receiving backlash for kicking the children out of the school, Pastor Wilson released a statement claiming that all parents sign a “written agreement to conduct themselves in accordance with expressed guidelines of conducts.”
Grant has profusely denied ever signing any written agreement. The two children run the risk of losing their scholarships as they have no other school to attend. “They don’t have a school,” she added. “They don’t have anywhere to go to school right now. I don’t know what to do.”
Grant is hoping the school will reconsider.
