The Diocese of Dallas is in fiscal difficulties owing to the hidden costs of its clergy's sexual recreations. The Dallas Morning News reports that St. Anthony Catholic School, faced with a serious financial crunch, decided to accept public funding and shelve the religion component:

For starters, the school is dropping "Catholic" from its name. It will be known as St. Anthony School. Religion classes and Mass will no longer be offered during school hours. Crucifixes, religious symbols and posters will come down or be covered in classrooms, hallways and other areas where students congregate. Teachers will no longer be allowed to pull religious themes or stories into their lessons. Many teachers said they use religion in classroom discipline and management techniques. That, too, will no longer be allowed. "I'm going to have to be really conscious of what I say next year," said teacher Ben Calleja. "Instead of bringing in the Christian perspective, I'm going to try and make it a citizen's perspective."

Perhaps Christian children will recognize one another by tracing the ICHTHYS symbol in the playground cinders with the toe of their shoe.

An appeal from our founder, Dr. Jeffrey Mirus:
