Catholic dating divorced person teaching
When Father asked for a talk, Sister thought he meant that talk.She went to him twice to ask, “Are you sure you want that talk?Using material from the Catholic Medical Association and the prestigious if conservative Linacre Center in Great Britain, Sister Laurel talked about the causes of later homosexuality saying that a distant or absent father can cause a boy to seek masculine affirmation in a sexual attraction to other males.
The immediate result is that at least some teachers became enraged.
When I first read his statement, it seemed to me he was throwing Sister to the wolves. Sister had been to the school last fall and spoken to smaller groups segregated by sex and in the company of parents.
That talk had the gay stuff in it and it was received positively.
The petition found the “ideas expressed to be both offensive and unnecessarily derogatory.
We are incensed that you knew the content of this speech and allowed these ideas to be expressed in a school that should be preaching love and acceptance.” Specifically the petition said children can thrive even if their parents are divorced, same-sex couples can raise successful children, homosexuality does not occur because of a parent’s shortcoming, masturbation or pornography.
