Interesting interview with the Colorado couple whose children were not welcome to re-enroll for another year of Catholic school. Among other things:
- The news leak from the parish itself sort of blows the gay-activist-agenda meme out of the water. Turns out it was nothing more than gossip to the media.
- While not welcome in the parish school, they were urged by the pastor to enroll the children in religious education classes. So nice to know that RE is held in such high regard. I would think the parish DRE and RE catechists feel like they’re in a real second-fiddle ministry, yet an inclusive one.
- The suggestion from a diocesan priest that they switch to the Episcopal Church is theologically hilarious. Maybe he thought they could circle back to Roman Catholicism by the ordinariate route. I wonder if the archbishop will have some forthcoming policy on his clergy recommending practicing Catholics jump ship.
I’ve corresponded with Archbishop Chaput in the past. I could ask him about these questions, especially the encouragement from a priest to leave Roman Catholicism? Should I?
