"Parochial Preschool Rejects Three-Year Old With Two Dads"

Hope Christian Preschool, an Albuquerque, NM parochial school, has rejected a 3-year old’s admission because is being raised by two fathers, a local TV station reports. The school, which says it is legally free from “excessive government interference in matters of religion,” receives tens of thousands of dollars in federal funding. The school’s website quotes a version of Psalm 127:3-4, “Behold, children are a heritage from the LORD, the fruit of the womb a reward,” but its actions suggest that it believes some restrictions may apply.
