Catholic School Has Issue With Student's Lesbian Parents
A pre-school student at Boulder, Colorado's Sacred Heart of Jesus Catholic School will not be able to re-enroll in the fall simply because the child's parents are lesbians. That fact that the student's parents are gay is in itself a violation of the Denver Archdiocese policy.
Says the Archdiocese: "Parents living in open discord with Catholic teaching in areas of faith and morals unfortunately choose by their actions to disqualify their children from enrollment."
Since it is a private school, this is not against the law.
One encouraging bit of news is that, even though the school's staff were instructed to not speak to the media, some are so disappointed with the schools discriminatory decision, that they are ignoring the request. One teacher has said that she "couldn't believe a student will have to suffer because of his/her parent's sexual orientation."
Yeah, I can't either.
