Lesbian couple’s child barred from Catholic school
It is the teaching of the church to “avoid every kind of unjust discrimination” against those who are gay or lesbian. “They must be accepted with respect, compassion, and sensitivity,” according to The Catechism of the Catholic Church.
So I don’t see how the Archdiocese of Denver or the pastor of Sacred Heart Church in Boulder, Colorado can justify their decision to bar a pre-schooler from re-enrolling in the parish school because the child has two moms.
Call it what they may, I don’t think their decision to discriminate against this child reflects Catholic values.
