Former Christian Liberty Academy student
Amanda speaks out against AFTAH's anti-gay hate

"This school terrified me. I think every time I came to this school I had an anxiety attack. I was so terrified to be myself... I remember sitting in my philosophy class and they were discussing about why people get married and why they get divorced, and I remember my philosophy teacher telling us that 'If you are in a marriage and your husband is beating you, it's not Biblically right for you to divorce him... It took me years to be okay with who I am. And part of the reason was because of the hate that they teach. I would just hate to see any other child walk through these doors to feel the same way that I do. It was just amazing how much hate was coming from them. I truly believe that as a Christian bisexual woman, that God doesn't preach to us. He just hung out with hookers and thieves. What makes you think he wouldn't hang out with a Lesbian or Gay man?"
