Posted on 05/15/2012 9:35:53 AM PDT by massmike
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?
Well kids, you can’t tell by looking at someone if they are having sex. And if they come to the prom sober, they aren’t violating the conditions to be at the prom. We do not live in a pre-crime world and if we did, we may not have any proms at all, and you gay kids would be real happy about that, not having a VEHICLE TO SHOVE IT IN THE REST OF THE KIDS AND SCHOOL’S FACES.
If everyone knows you are gay, and you are planning to attend a prom at a catholic school and everyone’s aware of it, it isn’t the same thing. You aren’t even TRYING to be discreet or embarrased about your sins. You want to flaunt it and have everyone’s approval. Commandeering a prom to make your own attention-whore statement.
High Schools and Colleges are filled with them.
Lesbian Until Graduation
And these girls, if it’s an Irish Catholic school, well, chances are you’re not allowed into the prom unless if you haven’t been drinking.
/sarc had to get it in
scratch the “unless”. Wow, and I’m not drinking either.
I googled “what is a lug” and it didn’t help. Just after I asked that question, I added the word “sex” to my search and got more than I needed. ;-)
Don’t Unitarian Churches have schools?
I wonder who put them up to this?
>As a Catholic high school, we uphold every teaching of the Catholic Church.<
Take note, Notre Dame, Fordham, Boston College and other Catholic institutions of higher learning.
“These gals trying to attend a Catholic prom together as a couple are obviously, in your face, sinners. Public sinners call out for public sanctions. There is also a matter of the seriousness of the sin. I don’t believe drinking after a prom is equal to homosexual acts.
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.”
Outstanding assessment of this situation, Mom.
“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.”
What number? 1? 2?
You would be more shocked if you saw some of the lesbians I know. Drop-dead gorgeous. Very feminine and drop-dead gorgeous.
Where were the parents?
Just a rhetorical question.
I’m holding my nose as a type one-handed: I MAY JUST HAVE TO VOTE FOE EOMNWY NOW.
Wouldn't that make Hope a potential pedophile?
They are nice looking, too bad they play for the other team.
So how do you propose going about figuring out which students are having premarital sex?
The one question I have isn’t about the sexual preference but about the fact that one of these girls is 18 years old and one is a minor. Where’s law enforcement on this obvious violation of the law?
Secondly, who died and left these two as gods to sit in judgment on the decisions of their CATHOLIC school to abide by Catholicism and reject their perversions??? 15 0r 16 year old sophomore Tiffany Wright apparently imagines that the Church and its institutions are some sort of democracies and that her opinions as to the governance of her CATHOLIC high school have some sort of standing and some sort of relevance. Ummmm, Ms. Wright, the Church is not McDonald's. You do it our way or you get your insubordinate backside out of here. There is no third way. AND, Tiffany, dear, can you spell Moral Relativism?
Also note that these are two more instances of giving kids a bad start in life by naming them fashionably rather than after saints which was once the Catholic tradition. Unless maybe I missed references in Butler's Lives of the Saints to Saint Hope and Saint Tiffany.
Also, spoiling them rotten does not help them one bit.
Ohhhh, golly gee willikers, there goes that elk again being soooo judgmental!
Several years ago Kellenberg HS, a very popular Catholic HS on Long Island cancelled Prom. The principal, a Marianist brother, said too much debauchery in the form of post prom drunkeness and the renting of party houses in the Hamptons for post prom “festivities” made it impossible for a school that professes that it lives The Faith to allow the Prom to continue in its name. The school’s enrollment has not suffered.
Also known as "attention whores".
I’ll say it: NOT GUILTY!
What the little emotional liars want to make sure is NOT talked about is the FACT that while they said those who committed pre-marital sex and other transgressions NONE of them AGREE that it is not sin in the catholic church...The gay militant left always wants it to be framed up as if what they do is not a sin...they REFUSE to address this. Keeping them out was justified...just as it would be to say to the adulterer that if they do not see the wrong then no communion. Liars!
Hey, you weren't supposed to notice that fact.
Perhaps you should familiarize yourself with the actual law before making assumptions? Age of consent in Kentucky, the state in question is 16. Furthermore, most states have what is commonly known to lay people as Romeo and Juliet statutes, where there is not only an age of consent, but a minimum age discrepancy must also be met. Otherwise, situations would arise where it would be perfectly legal to engage on sex Thursday, but it would become illegal on Friday after a birthday.
On to the next faux “outrage”.
“the Church is not McDonald’s. You do it our way or you get your insubordinate backside out of here”
For the record, Elk, it is Burger King, not McDonald’s, that promotes the slogan “Have it your way.”
