Christian School Sparks Unprecedented Religious Liberty Battle After Firing Teachers for Refusing to Prove Their Faith

A Christian school in Thousand Oaks, Calif., is locked in a heated legal battle with former teachers who are claiming that they were unfairly dismissed for failing to provide proof of their faith. The trouble began last summer when Lynda Serrano and Mary Ellen Guevara were asked to submit documentation affirming their Christian views — something they refused to do.

I can't understand why any born again believer would resist this request/requirement. Their refusal leads me to believe that they are wolves in sheeps clothing planted within to cause confusion in some way, shape, or form.

It's a Christian school,right? The people who work there should be Christian.

Seems Calvary needs to read the book a little closer. Titus 2:3-5 1 Tim 2:9-15, as it is written!!
