Seán Patrick O’Malley (pictured), the archbishop of Boston who entered the scene after Cardinal Bernard Francis Law resigned amidst the child abuse sex scandal, isn’t looking to have another publicity nightmare involving children on his hands. So he’s stepping in mitigate one Massachusetts Catholic school’s decision to kick out a 8-year-boy who has two mommies.
St. Paul Roman Catholic Elementary School in Hingham revoked the admission of a student after the Rev. James Rafferty decided “teachers wouldn’t be prepared to answer questions her son might have because the school’s teachings about marriage conflict with what he sees in his family.”
Outrage! Including from State Rep. Garrett J. Bradley, who attended St. Paul as a boy.
So here’s Boston’s archdiocese spokesman Terry Donilon going on about how his boss has no problem will kids of gay families going to their schools. “We want kids to come to Catholic schools.” To brainwash them with Jesus!
