Ohio Christian school tells student to skip prom

1 hr 28 mins ago

FINDLAY, Ohio A student at a fundamentalist Baptist school that forbids dancing, rock music, hand-holding and kissing will be suspended if he takes his girlfriend to her public high school prom, his principal said.

Despite the warning, 17-year-old Tyler Frost, who has never been to a dance before, said he plans to attend Findlay High School's prom Saturday.

Frost, a senior at Heritage Christian School in northwest Ohio, agreed to the school's rules when he signed a statement of cooperation at the beginning of the year, principal Tim England said.

The teen, who is scheduled to receive his diploma May 24, would be suspended from classes and receive an "incomplete" on remaining assignments, England said. Frost also would not be permitted to attend graduation but would get a diploma once he completes final exams. If Frost is involved with alcohol or sex at the prom, he will be expelled, England said.

Frost's stepfather Stephan Johnson said the school's rules should not apply outside the classroom.

"He deserves to wear that cap and gown," Johnson said.

Frost said he thought he had handled the situation properly. Findlay requires students from other schools attending the prom to get a signature from their principal, which Frost did.

"I expected a short lecture about making the right decisions and not doing something stupid," Frost said. "I thought I would get his signature and that would be the end."

England acknowledged signing the form but warned Frost there would be consequences if he attended the dance. England then took the issue to a school committee made up of church members, who decided to threaten Frost with suspension.

"In life, we constantly make decisions whether we are going to please self or please God. (Frost) chose one path, and the school committee chose the other," England said.

The handbook for the 84-student Christian school says rock music "is part of the counterculture which seeks to implant seeds of rebellion in young people's hearts and minds."

England said Frost's family should not be surprised by the school's position.

"For the parents to claim any injustice regarding this issue is at best forgetful and at worst disingenuous," he said. "It is our hope that the student and his parents will abide by the policies they have already agreed to."

The principal at Findlay High School, whose graduates include Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger, said he respects, but does not agree with, Heritage Christian School's view of prom.

"I don't see (dancing and rock music) as immoral acts," Craig Kupferberg said.

There is only one way to settle this. Get two tractors and play chicken. It's the only way.

Idiots.

I will never understand why certain churches think music is devil's work. Where do they think the need to write, perform, listen, and dance to music came from? Does not the universe abound with the music of the spheres? It has to be the stupidest doctrine ever.

Ignorant, intolerant dumbasses.

Those other 83 students should quit going to school until Frost is allowed to return and graduate with the rest of his class.

Purdy Journal; Ban on School Dances Includes Missouri Waltz
By DIRK JOHNSON, Special to the New York Times


It causes fist fights in school, angry glares in church, conflict at home. ''I won't say it caused my divorce exactly,'' said Karen Robberson, ''but it surely didn't do any good.''

It all started with a question: May I have this dance?

School dances are banned, and always have been, here in this town of 967 people in southwestern Missouri, where social conservatism and fundamentalist Christianity are the accepted ways.

For generations students have asked the school board to lift the ban on school dances. Now the students have sued. A lawsuit in Federal District Court contends that the ban, based on the view that dancing is sinful, unconstitutionally endorses certain religious beliefs. A judge in Springfield, Mo., about 35 miles northeast of Purdy, is expected to rule on the issue in the next few weeks.

''It's got everybody hating everybody,'' said Ms. Robberson, 35 years old, whose family favors school dances and whose former husband's family does not.

The students at Purdy High School have had proms for years. They just have to leave town for them. This year they drove to Monett, about 12 miles away.....
