Parents who gave $1.35M sue Florida Catholic school, ask for return of donation

July 08, 2021

CWN Editor's Note: Stating that the school has strayed from fidelity to Catholic teaching, the parents have sued the Academy of the Holy Names in Tampa. In a lawsuit, they allege that “the Academy lost its way, distancing itself from mainstream Catholicism, and embracing the new, politically correct divisive and ‘woke’ culture where gender identity, human sexuality and pregnancy termination among other ‘hot-button issues’ took center stage.”

The school’s attorney responded, “We can discern no motivation behind the lawsuit other than attention-seeking by your clients, and a desire by you to build a brand.”

    Potential donators listen up!! Add a clause to your gift stating that, should the school EVER deviate from fidelity to Catholic teaching, the gift must be returned plus interest for however many years between the time the gift was given and backsliding occurred where the interest is calculated yearly based on the average borrowing rate for that sum of money.
