Skip to comments.[North Carolina] Students, parents upset about nun's message about homosexuals
Posted on 03/27/2014 11:28:43 AM PDT by Pyro7480
Charlotte Catholic High School is getting backlash from students and parents after a school assembly last week.
Students said that a guest speaker discussed offensive material about divorce and homosexuality.
Sister Jane Dominic, with Aquinas College in Nashville, has a doctorate in sacred theology.
But her message about the influence divorce has on gender identification and homosexuality didn't go over so well....
In an online petition, which now has close to 1,800 signatures, one student wrote "we found some of (the) ideas expressed to be both offensive and unnecessarily derogatory. We are incensed that you knew the content of this speech and allowed these ideas to be expressed in a school that should be preaching a message of love and acceptance."
...In the meantime, a second petition has also been created in support of Sister Jane Dominic's message. That petition has approximately 200 signatures.

What a useless article. How many of the 1800 actually go to that school? No way of knowing since we know nothing about the “online” petition.
“In the meantime, a second petition has also been created in support of Sister Jane Dominic’s message. That petition has approximately 200 signatures. “
Where can we sign that?
What did she say? That queers who continue in their perversion are going to hell? How un P.C. of her!
Nashville Dominicans rock!
She spoke to an all-school assembly March 21 on "Masculinity and Femininity: Difference and Gift," which explains Catholic teaching about gender using Blessed Pope John Paul II's Theology of the Body....School officials said she spent about half of her hour-long talk on homosexuality including the correlation between the decline of fatherhood in America and the rise in homosexuality.
I’d like to read the whole text of what she said that is getting their knickers in a knot.
Speaking the truth to power. Isn’t that what the Liberals always ask people to do?
They can’t handle the truth.
Why should the school be teaching “love and acceptance?” Love, yes. But love strong enough to REFUSE acceptance, when that acceptance threatens your life.
In new America, hearing something you disaree with is a major cause of distress and alarm.
No, divorce and homosexuality are the offensive material. She merely pointed out that fact.
By this we know that we love the children of God, when we love God and keep His commandments. For this is the love of God, that we keep His commandments. 1 John 5:2-3
I'm a strong believer in love and acceptance.
Which is more loving: to encourage behaviors that carry an extremely high risk of suicide and fatal diseases, or to encourage abstinence among those who are tempted to engage in high-risk behaviors? Which is more loving: to encourage fellow Christians, and in particular Catholic school students, to follow God's Word, or to encourage them to willfully ignore scripture?
Which is more accepting: To insist that a gay person's hormones should be in charge of that person's life or to accept that we all have the strength of will to put guidance from the source of Wisdom in charge of our lives?
Earth to libtards...Homosexual is a lifestyle choice!
Want to prove that wrong? Produce the ‘Gay’ gene.
However...if you did identify a ‘gay’ gene,(which you won’t) be prepared for abortion to banned immediately after you do that!
Which is particularly true for the young Generation X and Generation.com hipsters that are apparently infesting and ruining Brooklyn these days. They're trying to do that here in Boise, too...turn it into another Portland (gag!).
Scouts Out! Cavalry Ho!

Diocese leaders admit that parents were never notified that the assembly was being held.
However, diocese leaders told WBTV parents will have their voices heard.
“We hear the parents’ concerns. We hear the students’ concerns. There is going to be a meeting at the school next Wednesday to basically kind of air this whole thing out,” Hains said.
In the meantime, a second petition has also been created in support of Sister Jane Dominic’s message. That petition has approximately 200 signatures.
So very many things wrong there. This is a part of why this nation is being rebuked, and will be judged. God has a chosen nation. The Untied States is not that nation. ALL other nations exist at His sufferance, until His patience is exhausted. Psalm 2 - the cure for what ails humanity.
I was once waiting for an appointment and I overheard a gay guy talk about the relationship he had with his father. He said his dad had been married "somewhere around" six times. And that he would just bring home "any woman he wanted." His dad was also a drug addict and an alcoholic. I felt really sorry for this gay guy.
“We are incensed that you...allowed these ideas to be expressed in a school...”
How quaint, allowing differing ideas to be presented in an institute of learning. This has to stop.
Separating the wheat from the chafed................
Indeed. The hive mind was disturbed.
One can get so tired of this. Catholic high school, which I attended, has rules and regulations that correspond with RC church teaching. The whining of America has reached fever pitch. Parents and students complaining about this presentation ought to man up. If you dont like the rules and the message, hit the road. You will not be missed.
The Nun apparently did not get the memo that good is now evil and lie is now truth. What an idiot...she went to a catholic school to espouse its values and look what happened...Fool! <Sarcasm off
There should be an appropriate response:
Exactly. 95% are irrelevant interlopers, I'd wager. The same with the 4 states which "passed" same-sex "marriage" in 2012. Fraud was written all over it.
Why don’t these schools just expell the students. There are public schools nearby.
I don’t find a transcript but apparently this is a standard presentation that
has been given for the past few months at several venues.
Was she saying “Marriage is between a man and a woman, for life. No sex outside of marriage”, or the opposite?
I suspect the former. IF stating the Roman Catholic Church’s teaching on such matters at a CATHOLIC HIGH SCHOOL gets everyone upset, then may I suggest the parents and students look at the ELCA.
She seems to be speaking the truth as far as I can see. It seems those that are upset with her need to find a Leftist congregation.
Another Catholic school that has clearly been a total failure. Needs to be shut down and leveled.
Note my tagline.
Flying Nun over the target.
I’m sure they deserve partial blame, but at least they brought in the sister. The people who deserve the lion’s share of the blame are the parents!
My thinking exactly. Nobody is forced to be a Catholic or a Baptist or a Mormon or any religion except Islam. If they don’t agree with the teachings they should go start their own. Lots of people have done it. There’s room for one more.
One of my favorites from Kipling. I can’t tell you how many people I’ve recommended that tale to.
Just sent the students to Public Schools, or allow them to find another private school.
“...school that should be preaching a message of love and acceptance.”
Really? How ‘bout Christ’s love and acceptance of the moneychangers? We are charged to love God’s children, but not to accept or condone or encourage their sinful behavior.
That student should find a new school.
How many urchins attend this school? Also, the Catholic Church is not a democracy, don’t like the rules, find a new place to play.
People amazed to find that Catholic schools teach Catholicism.
If students and parents at a CATHOLIC high school were shocked and upset that a nun’s message would reflect Catholic doctrine and teaching, then maybe those students and parents arent the brightest bulbs in the chandolier.
Liberals want other ideas banned, and their intolerance is spread through the media and culture. This school has apparently done a very bad job teaching their faith
Just thought I give a word of advice to those parents that have children in Catholic Schools. Make sure you talk to the religion teacher and principal about their “Culture of Life Beliefs” because many hold contrary positions to Catholic teaching. This is so you can take measures to counter any false teaching. Between being a parent and teacher in Catholic schools for many years I learned that you can’t take the title of “Catholic” for granted.
Apparently these kids have never heard catholic doctrine before, which is sad in this venue
It appears they have been ‘properly’ indoctrinated...
This nun must not have read the 11th Commandment: Thou Shalt not offend the Gay Lobby. /s
Yes, where can we sign the petition in favor of what the Sister had to say?
Dropped some truth-bombs ... apparently on target. She got a bunch of secondary explosions (leftists' heads exploding).
