Catholic Pre-school Refuses To Enroll Child Because She Has Two Mommies (Video & Update)

Sacred Heart of Jesus Catholic School of Boulder, CO will not  re-enroll a child this 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. (Children of Divorced parents are okay though) And of course since it is a private school, this is not against the law……….YET.

But even though the school’s staff were instructed to not speak to the media, some are so disappointed and disgusted with the schools discriminatory decision, that they are ignoring the Archdiocese’s request and speaking out.  One teacher has said that she “couldn’t believe a student will have to suffer because of his/her parent’s sexual orientation.”

UPDATE:  COMMUNITY PARENTS STAND WITH LESBIANS AND PLAN TO FIGHT BACK AGAINST THE CHURCH!
