Skip to comments.Same-sex couple barred from Lexington Catholic prom

Two female students say they were not allowed to attend Lexington Catholic High School's prom as a couple Saturday night, upsetting a number of students at the school.
Hope Decker, 18, a senior, and sophomore Tiffany Wright, 16, had already gotten their dresses for the event, but Friday afternoon they were told by school administrators they could not attend as a couple because of the church's stance on same-sex relationships, Wright said.
In an email Sunday, Lexington Catholic president Steve Angelucci said, "As a Catholic high school, we uphold every teaching of the Catholic Church. The policies and procedures of our school reflect those teachings."
When the couple tried to enter the school's gymnasium, where the prom was held, they were turned away, so Wright said they held their own prom in the school's parking lot.
"I would understand and respect the school's decision if they truly upheld church teachings," Wright said Sunday night. "They didn't forbid the entrance of all the couples who've had premarital sex and all the kids who planned to get drunk after the prom."

Next week's special guests on "Ellen".......
Ahhh. I’m home.
I moved from my 45 year home of Seattle to KY last year. Every time there is a story about the latest hijinx coming from that liberal bastian I say, “yep, another reason why I needed to leave Seattle.”
But I need to start doing the reverse and I’ll start with this story:
“Yep, another reason why I moved to KY.”
Obviously, the Church should have made an exeption for them. Mommy told them that they were “special”. < /s>
Obviously the school has magical powers to automatically determine which couples were having pre-marital sex, or were planning to get drunk that night.
“I would understand and respect the school’s decision if they truly upheld church teachings,” Wright said Sunday night. “They didn’t forbid the entrance of all the couples who’ve had premarital sex and all the kids who planned to get drunk after the prom.”
1. Maybe if it were more obvious they would.
2. Sin is one thing. Broadcasting it proudly (same sex couple going to prom) is another.
And a third thing: How are they supposed to know who “plans” to get drunk afterward?
No fair! You’re using logic! <sarc
They look like LUGs.
Bet daddy is proud.
It’s easy. Straw men are all they have. It’s like the people who are against picture ID to vote because it is a financial hardship. That straw man is soaked in gasoline, just waiting for a stray match.
Nah, more like Romy and Michelle.
Good for the school for standing up for the teachings they agreed to impart to all students when their parents chose to send them to the school.
My vote is for “attention whores.”
The one on the right looks like a Judd.
Boston Globe covers last week's two major "gay marriage" events with laughable bias.
In the first picture,the Globe had just a small Associated Press article on page 6,calling the North Carolina vote a "gay marriage prohibition."
The second photo is from the morning after Obama's comments, You would have thought it was the second VJ Day. The Globe devoted the entire top front page,two full inside pages, and the lead editorial to an announcement that surprised no one!
The first picture here is from the Boston Globe....taking a shot at the "religious right"... The second is from the "conservative" Boston Herald,which devoted an inside spread gushing about the news of Obama supporting gay "marriage".....
What is a lug?
