According to a letter sent home to families, the policy gives the school the right to refuse admission of an applicant whose home life includes "homosexual or bisexual activity."
A group of about half a dozen community members held signs that said things like 'honk if you support love.' Protestors say they wanted to voice their opinion about the policy which they claim sends a message of hate.

A Facebook page has been set up to boycott the school. Says the page: "A step backward from 21st Century Learning to archaic judgment and hate, this school should not be awarded TAXPAYER dollars for vouchers."
An integral part of Myrtle Grove Christian School's mission is to foster spiritual development and a biblical worldview in the lives of its students. This includes leading students to develop a biblical understanding of morality and to pursue a life that is governed by the biblical moral code. The school works in partnership with families to achieve these desired outcomes, which necessitates that both the school and home come under the authority of God for the benefit of the student.
For this reason, the school reserves the right, within its sole discretion, to refuse admission of an applicant or to discontinue enrollment of a student if the atmosphere or conduct within a particular home or the activities of the student are counter to or are in opposition to the biblical lifestyle the school teaches. This includes, but is not necessarily limited to, participating in, supporting, or affirming sexual immorality, homosexual activity, or bisexual activity; promoting such practices; or being unable to support the moral principles of the school.
