Posting a Diary Entry

Daily Kos welcomes blog articles from readers, known as diaries. The Intro section to a diary should be about three paragraphs long, and is required. The body section is optional, as is the poll, which can have 1 to 15 choices. Descriptive tags are also required to help others find your diary by subject; please don't use "cute" tags.

When you're ready, scroll down below the tags and click Save & Preview. You can edit your diary after it's published by clicking Edit Diary. Polls cannot be edited once they are published.

If this is your first time creating a Diary since the Ajax upgrade, before you enter any text below, please press Ctrl-F5 and then hold down the Shift Key and press your browser's Reload button to refresh its cache with the new script files.

ATTENTION: READ THE RULES.

  1. One diary daily maximum.
  2. Substantive diaries only. If you don't have at least three solid, original paragraphs, you should probably post a comment in an Open Thread.
  3. No repetitive diaries. Take a moment to ensure your topic hasn't been blogged (you can search for Stories and Diaries that already cover this topic), though fresh original analysis is always welcome.
  4. Use the "Body" textbox if your diary entry is longer than three paragraphs.
  5. Any images in your posts must be hosted by an approved image hosting service (one of: imageshack.us, photobucket.com, flickr.com, smugmug.com, allyoucanupload.com, picturetrail.com, mac.com, webshots.com, editgrid.com).
  6. Copying and pasting entire copyrighted works is prohibited. If you do quote something, keep it brief, always provide a link to the original source, and use the <blockquote> tags to clearly identify the quoted material. Violating this rule is grounds for immediate banning.
  7. Be civil. Do not "call out" other users by name in diary titles. Do not use profanity in diary titles. Don't write diaries whose main purpose is to deliberately inflame.

Please begin with an informative title:

The president of a prominent Catholic School in Minnesota has resigned, as he has announced that he is in a same-sex relationship and has a family, and he wants to put his family first. This is a story of integrity, but it it sad that he felt he had to resign.

In a statement, Hudson called his resignation a “deeply personal” decision. He said he loved being part of the Totino-Grace community, and reached his decision after “a great deal of prayer, discernment and reflection.”

“Though heartbreaking and painful, I must say that it is freeing to be open about the most important thing in my life and to live an authentic life,” Hudson said. “For over 20 years I have placed service of the Catholic Church ahead of my family. I am excited to now be able focus on my 2 children and my partner of 18 years as my first priority.”

Mr. Hudson also has an impressive record:
Hudson's biography says he has been president for two years and previously had a top role at the National Catholic Educational Association, which works with 1,200 Catholic high schools around the country. He has held prior roles as a teacher and coach at other Minnesota Catholic schools.
It looks like this Catholic school lost a valuable and talented individual, because of the ideology of the Catholic Church (which, of course, they are free to choose). The story just seems sad to me, on one level.
