CWN Editor's Note: Archbishop Charles Thompson of Indianapolis will announce tomorrow that Brebeuf Jesuit Preparatory School can no longer be considered a Catholic institution, after the school refused to cut ties with a teacher who is a partner in a same-sex marriage. The Jesuit school issued a statement in advance of the archbishop’s public decree, saying that its trustees “respectfully declined” to comply with archdiocesan policies.

    This kind of leadership is long overdue. Our prayers are with the Archbishop. For the school to say they won't comply with the Archbishop policies and have the nerve to then appeal the decision shows the devil at work in the school and with the Jesuits in general. I am sure St Ignatius is sad.

    Could a bishop expel the Jesuits from his diocese?

    Thanks to Archbishop Thompson! It's the leadership we need to see across the country.
