A homosexual stepfather in Arizona claims that because both he and the girl’s father are gay, he and the girl’s father were informed last month that he could not set foot on the girl’s school campus.
The girl’s father is now concerned about how the worldview of the school is affecting his daughter.
The 10-year-old girl’s father claims that when his ex-wife relocated from California to Arizona and enrolled his daughter in a religious school without his knowledge, the pastor who oversees the institution told the pair they were not welcome and threatened them due to their gay orientation.
The 10-year-old daughter of Williams’ ex-wife was enrolled there and told her parents that homosexual couples are not permitted. Later, according to Williams, Pastor Billy Van Camp threatened them violently.
Ortega asked Van Camp if he was threatening him, and Van Camp allegedly responded, “Try me.”
Williams claims that he and his husband saw that as a threat and chose not to disregard Van Camp’s advice in order to avoid danger.
“We have problems in our schools,” Van Camp said at the time, noting that hundreds of parents were disappointed in the yearbook. “We’ve lost control of our kids. It worries me. My heart hurts, and I just pray for our people.”
Williams says that he and his ex-wife, Regina, divorced in 2012, before the birth of their daughter, after growing apart. He says she disapproves of gay people.
“She’s not okay with homosexuality. She’s against it. She thinks it’s a sin,” Williams says. “She has put it in our daughter’s head that it’s not okay. And so she’s been adamant about putting her into a religious school.”
He says he’s fine with his ex-wife’s religion, but that she found a school that is entirely against him and his husband.
“I honestly believe she did that on purpose,” he says. Williams believes that his daughter is being poisoned against him and his husband by his ex-wife’s influence.
