An eight-year-old girl has been expelled from her school in Oklahoma school after telling another girl that she had a crush on her.
Delanie Shelton claims she was called in to Rejoice Christian Schools in Owasso, near Tulsa, after her daughter, Chloe, made the remark on the playground.
The girl was left in tears after being told by officials that the Bible only allowed her to marry a man.
And when Delanie defended her daughter, she says the school kicked out both of her children.
Shelton told Fox 23 News: ‘Chloe said the vice principal sat her down and says the Bible says you can only marry a man and have children with a man. My daughter was crying saying “Does God still love me”?’

Shelton added: ‘The vice principal asked me how do I feel like girls liking girls and I said if we’re being honest, I think it’s okay for girls to like girls and she looked shocked and appalled.
‘They ripped my kids out of the only school they’ve ever really known away from their teachers and friends they’ve had over the past four years over something my daughter probably doesn’t know or fully understand.’
Shelton went on to note that that she was trying to raise her child with the view that people should be allowed to love whoever they wanted, no matter their gender.
The are family are now faced with finding a new school for their daughter in the middle of a pandemic.
Chloe along with her five-year-old brother were both expelled after their mother said she saw nothing wrong with ‘girls liking other girls’
‘Whatever makes people happy they should be allowed to do,’ Shelton said. ‘She was upset and crying and asking me if God still loves me if she is wrong for the way that she feels.
‘The superintendent called me and let me know that they would be ending their partnership with our family.’
The school, Rejoice Christian Schools reportedly told Shelton they did not condone any relationships on campus.
In a statement to Fox23, the school said: ‘Due to privacy and other factors, it is the school’s policy to refrain from public comments regarding any particular student or family.’
The school had previously cited the school’s student handbook and policy.
Rejoice Christian Schools describes itself as: ‘One of the largest Christian schools in the Tulsa area. It is our Vision to be a Christian school that provides students with excellence in education and strength in character so that students will be spiritually, intellectually, physically, and socially equipped to impact their community and the world for Christ.’
The school, which was founded in 1992 now has more than 1,000 students enrolled.
