With all the horrible news about Priests and pedophilia, it's a bit refreshing to hear an archdiocese explain why gay and church teachings are incompatible. He did an excellent job...
Now, bring on the lib kiddies attempting to claim govt needs to step in, all the while ignoring the first Amendment.

A homosexual couple tried to enroll their child in St. Ann Catholic School in Prairie Village, a suburb of Kansas City, KS. This presented the school with a major problem. Either accept “parents” who were, in a very calculated manner, living in defiance of Catholic teachings (and the teaching of Christ, too, for that matter) and thereby creating scandal (see definition) in leading other people to believe that homosexual “marriage” is fine, or to refuse to enroll the child and be criticized for it.

The archdiocese responded:

“Marriage is considered the building block of the family, of society, and the heart of the Church. The Church’s teaching on marriage is clear and is not altered by the laws of civil society,” the statement reads, in reference to the U.S. Supreme Court’s 2015 decision that legalized gay marriage nationwide.
“The decision of the Supreme Court to grant marital status to same-sex unions does not change Church doctrine on marriage, but does present the Church with new pastoral challenges.”

The fact that a same-sex couple is not capable of modeling the “essential components” of the Church’s teaching on marriage “creates a conflict for their children between what they are taught in school and what is experienced at home,” the archdiocese said, and could become a source of confusion for other students.

“Our schools exist to pass on the Catholic faith. Incorporated into our academic instruction and spiritual formation, at every grade level, are the teachings of the Catholic Church,” the statement continues.

“It is important for children to experience consistency between what they are taught in school and what they see lived at home. Therefore, we ask that parents understand and be willing to support those teachings in their homes.”

The archdiocese concluded its statement by saying that the Church does not think it respectful, fair, loving or compassionate for individuals who disagree with the Church’s teaching to “place their children in an educational environment where the values of the parents and the core principles of the school conflict.”

Yeah, probably looking for a way to undermine him.

I don't see this Pope backing them up.  But I could be wrong.

Politics is supposed to be the second-oldest profession.  I have come to realize that it bears a very close resemblance to the first.  ~ Ronald Reagan ~
