The Catholic church is no longer satisfied by just persecuting gay and lesbian couples, but they are going after our children now too.
The Miami Herald reported:
The archbishop of Denver on Tuesday defended a decision by a Catholic school not to allow two children to continue as students because their parents are a lesbian couple.
Archbishop Charles J. Chaput said it was a "painful situation," but the decision by Sacred Heart of Jesus parish school in Boulder was in line with church teachings.
Chaput said the school told the parents that one of the children could complete kindergarten and the other could complete preschool, but neither could continue after that.
As a confirmed Catholic, I feel absolutely no remorse for what I'm about to say.
The Catholic Church's leadership has strayed from the teachings of Jesus, not gays and lesbians. If the Church is concerned about a crisis of morality, they need to look no further than policies that condone the blatant persecution of kindergarten and pre-school children.
As someone who spent years deprogramming myself from the bullshit the Catholic church brainwashed me with, such as "people who masturbate will spend eternity in hell," I should not be surprised when I see evil like this from the Church. But I am. I'm shocked. I'm disgusted. I feel like gagging myself on a crucifix and puking on the Bible!
Children should never, ever, be shunned because adults disagree. It is cruel. It is evil. It is the anti-thesis to the teachings of Jesus. Jesus was a loving, caring person. He would have been outside the school with the protesters supporting the children. He would have marched with us in Washington DC last fall.
He would have died for us....
