Suffer the Little Children Chapter 9 Volume 1200


An eight year old child in Boston has been denied admittance to a Catholic School because his parents are *gasp* lesbians.

This was after the parents had paid the deposit and bought the uniforms.

‘We weren’t hiding our relationship,’ one of the boy’s mothers, who requested her anonymity be honored to protect the child, told the press. Both she and her partner had listed their names on their son’s admission forms. ‘I’m accustomed to discrimination, I suppose, at my age and my experience as a gay woman. But I didn’t expect it against my child.'


The saintly Fr. Rafferty
and the school’s principal Cynthia Duggan informed the third-grader’s parents that he would be denied admission because their relationship is in discord with church teaching


And that affects the child's admittance how, exactly? He's a lesbian too? He made them into lesbians?

Read all about it here.

I just despair of this wilfully ignorant,abusive, corrupt, misogynistic child hating
institution.

  2. It's worrying how religions are increasingly trying to opt out of national laws and claim a special right to behave according to their religious beliefs. Homophobia features time and again. This tendency has to be halted.

    As you say, how exactly is the child unwelcome when it's the parents who are gay?

  3. "And that affects the child's admittance how, exactly?"

    Because when the teachers tell the class that homosexuals are the devil in disguise, he will be able to tell everyone that the teachers and what they are teaching is wrong. And we can't have that, can we?

  5. This is organized religion. This couple should rejoice they learned the horrors of Catholic schools in time, and send their child to a school where he'll be welcomed.

  6. Considering the Catholic Church's teaching on same sex relationships, I'm surprised that the parents would try to enrol their child in that school. Do they want him taught that their relationship is wrong and it's goes against God's plan or whatever? While the Church school needs a good slap up the side of the head, so do the parents. One has to wonder if perhaps they had another motive in terms of making a political statement. My concern is that the child is being used as a pawn by both sides. I'm just glad that he won't be getting that form of "education". vp

  7. I agree with you on this, WWW - and with the comment from ViewPoint 2010 (above).

    What better treatment did the parents expect from an evil and twisted institution like the RC Church? I feel as annoyed with them for sending their child into a nest of vipers, as with that travesty of a church.

Some of you are having trouble, I've removed captcha and verification so we'll see how that goes. My apologies. Blogger is putting up far too many roadblocks. Thanks for the emails alerting me.
