Nuns walk out of school over LGBT anti-bullying event.

#1  Postby Shrunk » Apr 24, 2015 3:43 pm

The divisions within the Bay Area’s Catholic community over gay rights hit Marin Catholic High School full force the other day, when a group of nuns walked out of their classes to protest the sponsors of a program intended to protect gay and lesbian teens from bullying.

The five members of the Dominican Sisters of Mary order exited their classrooms Friday as students began handing out flyers at the Kentfield school promoting a nationwide Day of Silence.

Their walkout came one day after 100 prominent local Catholics attracted national attention by taking out a full-page ad in The Chronicle calling on the pope to oust Archbishop Salvatore Cordileone, in part for trying to get teachers at Catholic schools to sign off on a morality clause that characterizes homosexual relations as “gravely evil.”

Marin Catholic High President Tim Navone and Principal Chris Valdez tried to put out the latest brushfire with a letter to parents about “a challenging day on our campus resulting in both students and faculty feeling confused about our mission.”

At issue was Friday’s annual Day of Silence, promoted by the Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network — whose corporate sponsors include McDonald’s, Target, Disney/ABC, Wells Fargo, Morgan Stanley, Google and the NBA. It bills itself as a group of “students, parents, and teachers that tries to effect positive change in schools,” but the nuns at Marin Catholic High see it as anti-Catholic....

So, a gaggle of neurotic, homophobic harpies storm off in protest at efforts to spread awareness about the effects of bullying people over their sexuality. Who would've thunk?

The Day of Silence is the Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network's (GLSEN) annual day of action to spread awareness about the effects of the bullying and harassment of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) students and their supporters.

This is a few days old now, but, in related news...

A Pennsylvania high school has come under media scrutiny after a group of students organized an "Anti-Gay Day" in response to the nationally-observed Day of Silence.

I, for one, fully respect their right to broadcast to the world what tiny-minded morons they are; but I'm surprised the school allowed it to go ahead, on site, during school hours. And of course I don't respect these idiots using their "Anti-Gay Day" to bully people, as was alleged:

"We came into school on Thursday and found a lot of people wearing flannel and we couldn’t figure out why,” Zoe Johnson, a 16-year-old McGuffey High School who identifies as bisexual, told BuzzFeed's David Mack. "People started getting pushed and notes were left on people’s lockers. ...I got called a dyke, a faggot. They were calling us every horrible name you can think of."

It's what Jesus would do.

He always got a chuckle over making outsiders feel unwanted and unloved. Silly Jesus.

If I was a kid, I'd be going, "No class today. Oh wait. There never was."

My father went to a Catholic school. From him and other people, I've heard enough horror stories that I just hope those nuns never return and they close the school.
