It took decades—centuries—to put a stop to the rampant rape of thousands of Catholic children by Catholic priests. But it only took a year to put a stop to the education of one Catholic school girl.
A Catholic school in Colorado is kicking out a preschooler because the child's parents are lesbians. The child also will not be allowed to re-enroll next year at Sacred Heart of Jesus Catholic School. The Denver Archdiocese posted a statement Friday saying the parents are "living in open discord with Catholic teaching." The statement says students in Catholic schools are expected to have parents who abide by church and school policies. The archdiocese said students with gay parents in Catholic schools would become confused.
No doubt the school has already kicked out all the kids whose straight parents are "living in discord with Catholic teaching" by having divorced and remarried or who've used birth control or who haven't been to mass lately. Right? Hello?
