Faithful Nuns Walk Out of Catholic School in Protest
A group of faithful Catholic nuns of the Dominican Sisters of Mary, Mother of the Eucharist walked out of their classrooms at Marin Catholic High School near San Francisco in protest of the pro-gay agenda literature being handed out by students on school grounds.
The walk-out took place on April 17th, which was the "Day of Silence" which was being run by the Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network. Now, to be clear, the school had announced that they would not be taking part in the events. But it seems that the school then linked to the GLSEN on its website where literature could be distributed. The GLSEN is not Catholic friendly.
The nuns reportedly felt "compromised" and "uncomfortable" with the group's literature being distributed on the Catholic school grounds. Sister Clare Marie, one of the nuns involved, reportedly wrote in an e-mail to students that the decision to walk out of the school for the day does not mean that the sisters “support bigotry or any kind of prejudice,” but that the group, GLSEN, seeks to actively promote homosexuality in the classroom.
The email added that the GLSEN literature said that any Church which teaches homosexual acts are sinful is an "oppressor," according to reports. Here's a screenshot of the group defining oppression:
Kevin Jennings, President Obama's former Safe Schools Czar, headed GSLEN for years. Jennings reportedly wrote the foreword to a book called Queering Elementary Education that had chapter titles such as “Locating a Place for Gay and Lesbian Themes in Elementary" and “Interrupting Straight Thinking in the English Classroom.” So it doesn't seem that the nuns were far off in their estimation of GLSEN, does it?
Archbishop Cordileone has been under attack in recent months over issues of faithfulness in Catholic schools. He should be supported as should the Dominican Sisters of Mary, Mother of the Eucharist.
Those who seek to water down the Church's teachings do it in various and nefarious ways, none of which is more toxic and damaging than infecting our children's education.
