OMG! Not Again!

Not again! Children are being punished for the 'sins' of their parents. Lesbian parents, that is.

In Denver, Colorado, at the Sacred Heart of Jesus School, two children have been barred from attending school by the Catholic Archdiocese.

"Parents living in open discord with Catholic teaching in areas of faith and morals unfortunately choose by their actions to disqualify their children from enrollment," the Archdiocese of Denver said in a statement.

However, the laity are speaking up against such discrimination to challenge the archaic teaching from their higher ups.

Aicila Lewis, executive director of Boulder Pride, a group that advocates for the gay community, said her organization has been hearing from Catholics.

"They want us to be aware that not everyone in the Catholic Church agrees with this decision. It's a wake-up call that this will cause a public outcry and not go unchallenged," Ms. Lewis said.

In my non-believing mind, I see any organized religion as causing more harm than good. Why would anyone subject themselves and their children to such vile behavior in the name of GOD?
