Court: Christian School Can Expel Lesbian Students

RIVERSIDE, Calif. (AP) - A California appeals court has ruled
that a Christian high school can expel students because of a
lesbian relationship.

The 4th District Court of Appeal in Riverside upheld California Lutheran High School's right as a private, religious organization to exclude students based on sexual orientation.

Two girls sued claiming they were discriminated against after they were expelled from the Wildomar school in 2005. A lower court said the school isn't bound by the same anti-discrimination laws as a business establishment.

California Lutheran's attorney says the school's goal is to educate students based on Christian principles.
