BOULDER, Colo. — A Catholic school in Colorado is kicking out a preschooler because the child's parents are lesbians.
The child will not be allowed to re-enroll next year at Sacred Heart of Jesus Catholic School. The Denver Archdiocese posted a statement Friday that the parents are "living in open discord with Catholic teaching."
The statement says students in Catholic schools are expected to have parents who abide by policies of the school and church. The Archdiocese said students with gay parents in Catholic schools would become "confused."
The school's decision was first reported Friday by KUSA-TV in Denver.
What is your opinion on this?
What about parents that have been divorced or had a child out of wedlock? Should their children get to stay in school?
I think that if you can be expelled for your parents "sins" most of the school would be empty and home schooling would be come very popular. I've never considered homosexuality a sin and I never will. But even if I did, how could that justify kicking a pure innocent preschooler out? And how can it be justified that this particular "sin" is worth more punishment then others?
The words, hypocritical, bigotry, discrimination and prejudice are ringing in my ears right now.
