New York archdiocese dismisses school principal accused of white-supremacist ties

Catholic World News - August 02, 2011

The New York archdioces has dismissed a Catholic-school principal who had ties to a white-supremacist organization.

A New York Daily News story revealed that Frank Borzellieri had written for American Renaissance. Borzellieri--who had written that the influx of racial minorities will lead to a “New Dark Age”–had been principal of a school whose students were primarily drawn from racial minority groups. The archdiocese issued a statement saying that the views Borzellieri expressed were incompatible with the standards of the archdiocesan schools.

The principal at a Catholic high school in the Bronx where Borzellieri had previously taught told the Daily News that Borzellieri’s writings had been reviewed by the archdiocese, and the conclusion at that time was that “Frank was certainly in his right to say it and it wasn't against church teaching.”
