Wow. The work that the Minnesota Archdiocese is doing to make sure this amendment passes this fall is just sad. Now they’re visiting school-aged children to talk about marriage and why same-sex marriage is so dangerous to society. The Catholic Church is apparently hitting up anyone that may be able to vote, or have the ability to influence parents, this fall.
Apparently, the talk at DeLaSalle did not go well. It ended with kids arguing with the presenters (a priest and married heterosexual couple) and providing them with some historical information on being gay. One student held up a sign saying that she loves her gay moms. Others were reduced to tears.
I’ve said it before (1, 2, 3, 4), I’ll say it again and again, this assault from the Catholic Church has to stop. From sending out DVDs to telling their own priests to shut up about the issue or face being dismissed, the hatred the Catholic Church is spreading is ridiculous. I just wish there was something to do about this… I feel so helpless in only using my words.
