Catholic School Kicks Lesbian Mother Off PTA

Robin McGehee's 5 year old son Sebastian attends St. Helen's Catholic School. The school was aware of her sexual orientation but forced her to resign after she appeared at a "No on 8" rally claiming it went against church teachings. Shortly after being forced to resign, the Vice-president of the PTA had resigned in solidarity with Ms. McGhee. Ms. McGhee and her wife are now looking for a new school for their son.

That's terrible.

I always feared such a thing would happen to our family. Fortunately, our school is great. My husband was even chosen to be "Room Mom" and we're not the type to keep quiet at a rally either.

At least her son won't be indoctrinated by the most corrupt government on the planet anymore.

Good for the vice president for taking a stand against hate in an institution that is so homophobic. That takes courage.

And it creates one of those really hard decisions for people who's religion is at odds with their sexual orientation. For many people, religion was such a large part of their upbringing and it really pulls at their morals to turn away from their church, even when it disagrees with the way they live their life. That Catholic guilt!

How devastating when your church blatantly discriminates against you, especially in a public way like that. I'm glad they won't be sending their son there any longer so hopefully he won't be exposed to unnecessary hatred. Lord knows he will exposed to enough in this world already.

F-U-C-K all of the Catholic schools around the country and around the world. My folks have told me HORROR stories of when they were kids going to them and of all of the nasty and mean and horny nuns and priests who taught at them! SHAME ON ALL OF YOU VILE, EVIL, horrible souls. But then, you'll meet your Maker one day, won't you??? And it will be time for you to pay the price.

Do not be deceived: Neither the sexually immoral nor idolaters nor adulterers nor male prostitutes nor homosexual offenders 10 nor thieves nor the greedy nor drunkards nor slanderers nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God.
