I know this is an old thread that has been revived but I seem to have missed it. Just to correct a misconception, there are TONS of Catholic kids that attended Parkway/Rockwood schools back in my day, it's just that they weren't the majority at Parkway Central. My oldest son goes to Parkway West Middle and I'd say 1/3 of his friends are in PSR programs. My youngest will be starting public Kindergarten and 3/4 of the kids we've already met are Catholic (probably because we met them all at CYC soccer and t-ball).

Thanks for posting that! I had no idea, though U City has got to be one of the most open and accepting places in the city for just about anybody! That's what I heart about it

Kanick,
How odd to have someone describe my exact experience!
Was a Parkway Central Colt and I thought most of St. Louis was Jewish!
This Lutheran even swam at the JCCA ( I was a competitive swimmer and, at the time, it was the only in-door pool in winter). Don't know how my parents got me in.

And we went to our neighbor's Passover dinners--like everyone else in St. Louis. I wouldn't snack, I would nosh.

And, just like you, found out in college that mine was a myopic view.

Hey! My husband was a Lutheran Parkway Centralite as well.

when I was a kid, growing up in Ladue, I thought we were the only Catholic family there! I really thought that Ladue was a Jewish enclave.
We moved out of the city when I was 10, to Sainte Genevieve, boy, what an eye-opener, I wasnt Catholic enough!

Don't do it...

My cute little brick home on a cute little cul-de-sac in Kirkwood was pretty much was sabotaged by our neighbors in an effort to get us to move as to not corrupt their procreations. And, people, we are as normal as they come. No, we don't look gay, we don't act gay, and the only rainbows in our life were the ones leading us out of that city. She is a doctor and I am a computer programmer. We don't have short hair, we don't dress like men, and we are very attractive, young, successful females who took very good care of their home and lawn. Their efforts worked... I live in a different time zone now and refuse to even drive through there or set foot in that place for the rest of my life.

St. Louis? Gay friendly? Ha... maybe in 2050. For now, the gay population will continue to suffocate. I'll never forget a pride-fest that I attended there where I had some "focus on the family" nutcase pouring holy water on me and praying for me while I was trying to watch the parade. Ah... the good ole' days.

I am very sorry that happened to you; it's completely unacceptable.

I have been to Pride in St. Louis and remember there being some protesters there too, but the cops kept them at bay. In my mind they have a right to be there, but never to dump water on you.
