Catholic School Officially Changes Policy 

After Fired Lesbian Rejects Hush Money, Goes Public

In what may be a historic first, a Catholic school that ended a contract with a teacher for being openly gay has reversed course, challenging Church teaching by instituting hiring polices that welcome LGBT people.
Earlier this year, 27-year-old Lauren Brown applied for a job as a counselor at St. Mary’s Academy, an all-girls Catholic school in Portland, Oregon. The school eagerly agreed in May to bring her on in the fall, but backtracked after Brown told administrators this summer that she is a lesbian and might marry another woman some day. The school eventually rescinded her contract in early August, offering instead a year’s salary if she promised not to talk publicly about her termination and not to sue.
But Brown said she would not bow to pressure, and refused to keep silent.
“To sign a contract that’s going to affect the rest of my life, and my passion for advocating for LGBT youth and LGBT people — there’s no way I could sign that,” Brown told Willamette Week on Tuesday. “I could never live with myself.”
When news of the firing became public this week, the Archdiocese of Portland in Oregon backed the school’s decision, praising administrators for “upholding the teachings of the Catholic Church.” But the move sparked a heated response from current students, who organized protests at the school defending Brown and tweeting messages of support using the hashtag #FightForSMA. Alumni also spoke out, including Columbia Sportswear CEO Tim Boyle, who is a “major donor” to St. Mary’s and whose wife is a graduate. Boyle issued a statement on Wednesday saying he was ”extremely disappointed” with the school’s decision to let Brown go.
“The news this week is an example of how to not prepare students,” Boyle told OregonLive. “There is no place in the workplace of today, or of the future, for discriminating against an individual based on sexual orientation.”
But on Wednesday evening, school officials abruptly switched their stance, announcing on Facebook that they had voted unanimously to alter the school’s hiring policies to allow for LGBT employees.
“Effective immediately, St. Mary’s has added sexual orientation to its equal employment opportunity policy,” the statement read. “St. Mary’s is a diverse community that welcomes and includes gay and lesbian students, faculty, alumnae, parents and friends, including those that are married.”
The policy change is highly unusual for a Catholic institution, as instances of Catholic schools firing LGBT employees for being “public” about their sexuality are increasingly common. Several LGBTCatholic workers and teachers have lost their jobs over the past few years simply for being “out” about who they are, with administrators often justifying the terminations by citing the Catholic Church’s historic opposition to homosexual acts. Catholic officials also often claim protection under the “ministerial exception” — a legal concept expanded in 2012 that allows faith-based organizations to discriminate when hiring for jobs they classify as “ministerial.”
According to New Ways Ministry, a LGBT-affirming Catholic organization, the reversal marks the first instance of a school changing its hiring policy to be more inclusive in “more than 50 public incidents since 2008 where church workers have lost their job in LGBT-related employment disputes.”
David Renshaw, communications director for the Archdiocese of Portland, spoke with ThinkProgress shortly before entering a meeting to discuss the school’s decision. He said Portland Archbishop Alexander Sample does not yet have a statement on the matter, but confirmed that “Canon law does say that the bishop does have oversight or jurisdiction” over St. Mary’s. Earlier this year, Sample published a statement saying that he was “saddened” by the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision to legalize same-sex marriage nationwide.
“We don’t know what the thought process was during the reversal,” Renshaw said, adding that Church officials would like enter into talks with school administrators soon.
But while the new policy is out of step with the position of the Catholic hierarchy, it is far more in line with the deeply progressive bent of American Catholicism: Over 60 percent of U.S. Catholics support marriage equality.
It remains to be seen whether St. Mary’s officials will extend another offer to Brown, or whether she would accept such an invitation if she did.
ThinkProgress contacted St. Mary’s and Brown for comment, but did not receive a reply by press time.

Baltimore: 45 murders in 31 days !!!





July saw 45 homicides across Baltimore, a toll that matched the deadliest month in the city’s modern history and came amid a violent crime surge that has stretched the entire summer. The killings occurred across the city, overwhelmingly in historically impoverished neighborhoods. The victims included a 5-month-old boy and a 53-year-old grandmother, a teen stabbed to death in a dispute over a cell phone and a carryout deliveryman killed in a robbery. The Baltimore Sun sought to profile each victim, through interviews with relatives, friends, neighbors and police, as well as information on social media — and to chronicle the impact on those left behind.

(CNSNews.com) – Almost two dozen black pastors and leaders of the pro-life movement held a press conference and rally Thursday on the steps of the Smithsonian’s National Portrait Gallery to demand the removal of a bust of eugenicist and Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger that is in the museum's “Struggle for Justice” exhibit.

The group also delivered to a museum official a petition signed by more than 14,000 people seeking the bust’s removal while standing beside the bust that’s part of an exhibit that also features civil rights icons Martin Luther King Jr. and Rosa Parks.

Brent Bozell, chairman of For America, said he had an idea of what to do with the Sanger bust.

"I have a message for the Smithsonian,” Bozell said. “I have an idea. What if we were to do this: What if we were to take that bust down but leave the stand, leave it standing there?

“Let it quietly represent that hero, that man or that woman we will never know because he and she was aborted ...and then let us take that bust, take it to a far off place, dig a deep, deep hole, put it inside, and apologize to the dirt,” Bozell said.

Rev. Johnny Hunter of the Global Life and Family Mission in North Carolina, said it was a “slap in the face to black folks” to have Sanger as part of the “Struggle for Justice” exhibit.

“Because it's not just us, but each one of us represents a number of people across this nation,” Hunter said, “and if you really want to bring this nation together again, putting that mess up there like that is not going to help.

“Last thing we need is a white supremacist sitting between the bust of Martin Luther King and Rosa Parks,” Hunter said. “That's just a slap in the face to black folks, and I hope the curator can understand that.”

As CNSNews.com previously reported, Jackson’s group Ministers Taking a Stand, delivered a letter to the National Portrait Gallery on Aug. 7, demanding that the bust of Sanger be removed from the “Struggle for Justice” exhibit.

"Perhaps the Gallery is unaware that Ms. Sanger supported black eugenics, a racist attitude toward black and other minority babies, an elitist attitude toward those she regarded as ‘the feeble minded;’ speaking at a rally of Ku Klux Klan women; and communications with Hitler sympathizers," the letter from Ministers Taking A Stand stated.

“Also the notorious ‘Negro Project,’ which sought to limit, if not eliminate black births, was her brainchild,” the letter stated. “Despite these well- documented facts of history, her bust sits proudly in your gallery as a hero of justice.

“The obvious incongruity is staggering!” the letter added.

Vatican: " The letter to 'Lesbian' Pardi was intended to remain private"


She included examples of her works, some of which have recently been controversially withdrawn from nurseries and primary schools by a new mayor in Venice.
"My books present different types of families without setting any of them up as a model," Pardi told AFP, praising the pope for having responded in a manner that showed "respect and dignity" towards her, her wife and their four children.
"It was not important for me that it was the pope who said it, I am not a Catholic. But it is important to see that we are not up against a wall. A dialogue is possible," she added.
"Books are to be opened, to be read and to be criticised. What you don't do is ban them."
In his message, the pope wished the two women "ever more fruitful work in the service of young generations and in spreading authentic human and Christian values." Francis has signalled that he wants the Church to adopt a more pragmatic and understanding approach to the situation of believers living in gay relationships, an attitude reflected in his famous "who am I to judge" remark on the subject.
Are these some of the “genuine human and Christian values” Francis is grateful for?


The Vatican press office has issued a statement to counter an Italian writer’s claim that Pope Francis praised her book defending same-sex unions.
Francesca Pardi, whose book Piccolo Uovo was among the gay-oriented books banned from city schools in Venice, had written to Pope Francis to protest. She received a polite response—not from the Pope but from an official of the Secretariat of State—saying that the Pope “is grateful for the thoughtful gesture and for the feelings which it evoked, hoping for an always more fruitful activity in the service of young generations and the spread of genuine human and Christian values.”
Pardi quickly made that letter public, and succeeded in prompting a series of media reports that the Pope had endorsed her book. The August 28 statement from the Vatican rejected that interpretation of the letter. “In no way does the letter from the Secretariat of State mean to endorse behavior and teachings not in line with the Gospel," the statement said. The Vatican statement added that the letter to Pardi was intended to remain private, which “unfortunately did not happen.”

Pope Francis sends letter praising gay children's book.




Italian book that explores different family types including same sex was banned by mayor of Venice, but pontiff becomes unlikely supporter.




The hippos, kangaroos and penguins adorning the cover of Piccolo Uovo (Little Egg) give little hint of the political and religious storm the children’s book has caused. While following the adventures of an egg may seem harmless enough, its discovery of different family types – including same sex – has prompted a backlash by conservatives who accuse Italian author Francesca Pardi of promoting a pro-homosexuality gender theory.
In the book, the egg encounters a pair of gay penguins, lesbian rabbits successfully bringing up a family, as well as other family models, including a single parent hippo, a mixed race dog couple, and kangaroos that have adopted polar bear cubs.
The book, however, was met with disapproval by Venice’s new mayor, Luigi Brugnaro, who in June banned Piccolo Uovo and about 50 other titles from schools. The decision led more than 250 Italian authors to demand their own books be removed from the city’s shelves, a move one writer described as a “protest against an appalling gesture of censorship and ignorance”.



Now Pardi has found an unlikely supporter in Pope Francis, who through his staff has written to the author praising her work. “His holiness is grateful for the thoughtful gesture and for the feelings which it evoked, hoping for an always more fruitful activity in the service of young generations and the spread of genuine human and Christian values,” wrote Peter B Wells, a senior official at the Vatican secretariat of state.
The letter, dated 9 July and recently seen by the Guardian, was a response to a parcel of children’s books sent by Pardi to the pontiff in June. The collection from her publisher, Lo Stampatello, including seven or eight books which deal with lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender issues (LGBT), was accompanied by a heartfelt letter from the author describing the attacks she has come under in recent months.
“Many parishes across the country are in this period sullying our name and telling falsehoods about our work which deeply offends us,” she wrote. “We have respect for Catholics ... A lot of Catholics give back the same respect, why can’t we have the whole hierarchy of the church behind us?”
...
But attitudes in Italy are changing, with recent polls showing the majority of voters are in favour of giving rights to gay couples. Pardi is herself in a same-sex relationship with her business partner, Maria Silvia Fiengo, but the pair had to travel to Spain to be legally married. Granted no legal rights to have a family in Italy, they had their four children in the Netherlands.
Although gay marriage and adoption are off the government agenda, Italy’s prime minister, Matteo Renzi, has pledged to legislate for same-sex unions this year. He has come under growing pressure to fulfil the promise following a decision by the European court of human rights, which ruled that Italy failed to protect same-sex couples.

Catholics support gay marriage as much as general population and believe the pope has backed It, study finds.



That’s not what Pope Francis said


The following is from an August 27 Christian Postarticle by Stoyan Zaimov:
A study by the Public Religion Research Institute released in August on the beliefs of American Catholics has found that despite the Church’s teachings, they support same-sex marriage and abortion just as much as the general population. What is more, a large percentage of Catholic respondents mistakenly believed Pope Francis has backed gay marriage.
A profile on American Catholics shared by Public Religion Research Institute noted that they make up roughly one in five, or 22 percent of all American adults, with 59 percent of Catholics categorized as white non-Hispanic, while 34 percent identifying as Hispanic.
When asked about whether gay and lesbian couples should have the legal right to marry, 60 percent of all U.S. Catholics said that they are in favor – compared to 55 percent of all Americans.
Similarly, 51 percent of Catholics said that abortion should be legal in all or most cases — with 53 percent of the general population saying the same.
While American Catholic views of Pope Francis remained favorable, they also revealed great confusion about where he stands on issues such as gay marriage. As many as 49 percent of Catholics who backed gay marriage also believed that the pontiff has backed the practice, and even 15 percent of those opposed to same-sex marriage believed the same.
The survey, which was based on a total sample of 1,331 interviews conducted between Aug. 5-11, noted that there was a deep partisan divide on issues, with roughly one-third of Republican Catholics supporting abortion in all or most cases, compared to nearly two-thirds of Democratic Catholics saying the same.
Pope Francis has spoken out both in favor of the Catholic definition of marriage and its views of life, though an ongoing petition from the conservative Tradition Family Property Student Action has called on the pontiff to clarify the “widespread confusion” in society over the Catholic stance on hot-button issues.

Gospel Changes ... yeh yeh yeh !



GOSPEL CHANGES Lyrics

The Prodigal Son, he'd been away a while,
he was working his way back home now over many a ragged mile.
When he finally crossed the river and his father saw him near,
there was a joyful sound, for all the world to hear.

I listened to what the Good Book said and it made good sense to me,
talking about reaping what you're sowing, people trying to be free.
Now we've got new names and faces, this time around,
Gospel changes, Lord, still going down.

Jesus, He did not doubt His gifts, though He knew that He had not long to live.
He took care of the business of teaching us how to fly,
then He bowed His head and laid down to die.

Jerusalem I see you standing high,
but if you lose your salvation, there'll be no tears left to cry.
Now some men worship a Golden Calf while others are bought and sold,
and if we live like that, brother we'll pay the toll.

"I like life"


Ghost of Christmas Present:
Ebenezer Scrooge
The sins of man are huge
A neverending symphony
Of villainy and infamy
Duplicity, deceit, and subtefuge
And no one's worse than Ebenezer Scrooge
Though man's a handy candidate for Hell
I must admit life sometimes has it's brighter side as well

I like life
Life likes me
Life and I fairly fully agree
Life is fine
Life is good
'Specially mine, which is just as it should be
I like pouring the wine and why not?
Life's a pleasure that I deny not

I like life
Here and now
Life and I made a mutual vow
'Till I die
Life and I
We'll both try to be better somehow
And if life were a woman
She would be my wife

Ghost of Christmas Present
Come on, Scrooge, we're going visiting
You're in for a few surprises

Drinking life
That's the thing
Makes a man want to suddenly sing
Sing and dance
And perchance
Seeing life from a different stance
When you learn how to live it
Life is free of strife
That is why I like life!

That's the secret of living

Scrooge
Any man can fly!
