Boulder’s Sacred Heart of Jesus School legally denies re-enrollment of lesbians’ children
9News: ‘Archdiocese’ says couple living in ‘disaccord with Catholic teaching’

Two sisters, believed to be in preschool and kindergarten, students at a Catholic school in Boulder, will not be allowed to re-enroll next year because the students’ parents are a lesbian couple, 9News reported Thursday night.
Teachers at Sacred Heart of Jesus School told 9News they were told at a staff meeting earlier this week that the students would not be allowed to return to school next year because of the students’ home situation. The teachers also were told not to talk to the media.
In a statement to 9News, the “archbishop” of Denver said the parents disqualified their children from enrollment by their actions.
“Homosexual couples living together as a couple are in disaccord with Catholic teaching,” the statement said.
According to the “archbishop”, parents who enroll their kids at Sacred Heart of Jesus Catholic School are expected to follow the Catholic Church’s beliefs.
“No person shall be admitted as a student in any Catholic school unless that person and his/her parent(s) subscribe to the school’s philosophy and agree to abide by the educational policies and regulations of the school and ‘archdiocese’,” the statement said.
[Actually, every single family of every single student at every single Catholic school is living “in disaccord with Catholic teaching” in some way, for example by ongoing birth control, or practicing serial marriage which is obvious and “in your face” deeply anti-Christian — and none of their parents are abiding by all of the policies and regulations of the church or the school.]
Some staff members told 9News they were upset that a school that preaches love and understanding would take these actions.
The Sacred Heart of Jesus School could not be reached for comment late Thursday, [a regular school day].
The “priest” who did this is a lying, hypocritical, bigoted creep, whining about his “suffering” over this action, while ignoring the true suffering of this family, which he alone caused, quite legally. I guess he forgot that Jesus said the church’s petty “rules” don’t matter a bit when it comes to reaching out to help human beings (eating the temple’s food; helping others — even animals, let alone humans — on the Sabbath, and on and on).
