THIS is why it is so important that religion be kept far away from the public school system. They not only want to inject their fantastic creationist silliness into the science curriculum, but if they ever get their way, they’ll determine who may and may not attend school in the first place.
A preschool student at a Catholic school in Boulder will not be allowed to return next school year because of what is going on at home.
The student’s parents are two women and the Denver Archdiocese says their homosexual relationship violates the school’s beliefs and policy.
The Archdiocese also told 9NEWS, “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.”
The only redeeming note in this pathetic example of just how fucked up people who believe they, and they alone, know what the magical sky wizard commands, is found among the staff:
School staff members, who asked to remain anonymous, say they are disgusted by the Archdiocese’s decision.
One employee said she could not believe a student will have to suffer because of his or her parents’ sexual orientation.
How anyone can argue that religion helps people be moral; that some sort of objective moral code comes from god is utterly beyond me.
Even granting that such a thing exists, it’s clear that those who most fervently believe in such a thing fall far short of living up to it.
