Catholic School Rejects Child Because Of Lesbian Parents - Denver News Story - KMGH Denver

"Most of the protesters stood silently, across the street, holding signs. One read "God loves all people............"

Now the world is dictating to believers God's love in the name of tolerance, acceptance and A horrendous understanding of theology. Wasn't the purpose of creating private schools to separate from the worldly mess? Now the world wants to move in on our turf and dictate their lack of morality yet we Christians get demonized when we do it to the world? When we do it it's called bigoted, self righteous, judgmental but when the world does it is is called tolerance and acceptance.

Of course they can admit who they want....they should. And people have the right to protest as well.

For consistency purposes, Next year's school application ought to read....
No admittance will be granted if one/both of your parents are a
homosexual
liar
gossip
fat
selfish
covetous
uses birth control


I'm sure there are more sins that they would want on the list but there's a start.

First, I find it funny that "fundamentalists", who demonize the Catholic Church, come running when the Catholics side with them on gay hating and abortion.

Second, I have to wonder why this couple sent their child to a Catholic school in the first place, knowing what the Catholic church teaches. In a way, I agree with the priest who actually seemed concerned for the child and didn't want her hearing her parents demonized. As odd as that sounds. I've found that the majority of Catholics don't have any issue with gay people, but the church itself is a whole different issue.

I'm glad your perception of my spiritual confusion can provide you with so much joy Fundy. Nonetheless I'm not quite sure what that has to do with my question.

Is the pre-schooler gay?

I would hope that 'demonizing' homosexuals wouldn't be a part of any religious school curriculum, especially PRE-SCHOOL. But I'm not Catholic and don't really know....maybe they are having discussions about homosexuals in pre-school....???

As for differing views....unless parents are completely brainwashed into a way of thinking there are bound to be differences between what is taught at home and what is taught at school, be it a religious or public school. That's why parents are still teachers to their children, they help their kids bridge that gap.

Thanks Denverian.

Interesting to me that a church or private school is limiting "membership" to children based on the perceived "sins" of the parents.

I've always been a proponent of a private religious school hiring who they want and admitting who they want. It is after all a private school. However, this is very interesting in that they are denying entrance (to a pre-schooler no less) because of the perceived sins of the parents.

Quite the slippery road..

Yeah, I was wondering myself. Didn't see where the parents wanted to be enrolled.

Churches should ensure themselves the right to speak against sect of the population by paying taxes, until then they are hypocrites by embracing a part of the world at their convenience.
