OWASSO, Okla. — An 8-year-old girl was expelled from school after she allegedly told another girl she had a crush on her.

Delanie Shelton told KOKI that her 8-year-old daughter was told by the vice principal at Rejoice Christian School in Owasso (Okla.) that "the bible says you can only marry a man and have children with a man."

Shelton said her daughter responded by asking whether God still loves her.

“The vice principal asked me how do I feel like girls liking girls and I said if we’re being honest, I think it’s okay for girls to like girls and she looked shocked and appalled,” Shelton said.

Officials from Rejoice Christian School said they were simply following the student handbook.
