Minnesota Catholic school removes student editorial criticizing bishops' effort on same-sex marriage

Catholic World News - November 16, 2010

A Catholic high school in Minnesota has deleted two online editorials in the student newspaper debating the campaign by the state's bishops against legal recognition of same-sex marriage.

The paper had generated controversy with an editorial that protested the "injustice" of treatment experienced by homosexuals. "Your faith preaches your exclusion-- or damnation," wrote the student editor. The newspaper criticized the DVD released by the Minnesota bishops in support of traditional marriage.

    It makes one wonder what they omitted teaching in their high school, or does it. Having run across priests who have never (supposedly) heard on the Sins that Cry to Heaven for Vengeance, these students might not have read the various Bible passages either, let alone the Catechism.
