Do you remember the story of the 5th grade teacher in Minnesota who was asked to resign from her position in a Catholic school because of her private views on marriage ?
Well, there is more to the story.
The bishop there actually went to her 5th grade class to talk about how bad marriage truly is:
Cameron said her decision to speak out goes back to a day last fall, when Bishop Michael Hoeppner of the Diocese of Crookston made his annual visit to her class.This bishop shows his lack of common sense and decency. I mean, giving a political speech to 5th graders ?
"When he came to talk to my fifth graders this year this was the topic, gay marriage and the Minnesota Marriage Amendment," she recalled. "And it ended with a direct call to 'talk to your parents,' kind of 'tell them how to vote and make sure — this is important for the church.' And I was really troubled by that, I was very uncomfortable with that."
Cameron said she felt a fifth grade classroom was not the appropriate place for a political discussion of the marriage amendment, which would change Minnesota's Constitution to allow marriage only between a man and a woman. Cameron said she can't remember another instance in 11 years where a bishop expressed political views in the classroom.
The priest in charge shows his arrogance by responding to a reporter's question about this issue by saying:
St. Joseph's School Superintendent Monsignor Mike Foltz declined an interview request. In an email, he wrote, "It is of divine revelation and what more can I say?These people are simply morally bankrupt. They are unworthy of any respect whatsoever.
