Posted on 04/03/2014 6:13:38 PM PDT by jobim
Nearly 1,000 parents gathered at Charlotte Catholic High School on Wednesday night to air complaints about a recent speech to students by a nun who made what many considered inflammatory comments about gays and lesbians, divorce and single parenthood.
So many parents lined up to speak that the meeting with high school officials, the schools chaplain and the Diocese of Charlottes vicar of education lasted more than an hour longer than scheduled.
Though the gathering was closed to the media, texts and tweets from parents inside the school gym cast the meeting as often heated, with emotions running high on both sides.

Structured around this pivotal evidence from statistical as well as clinical research, homosexuality is explained here as a character neurosis. Characteristics of this neurotic character syndrome include personality immaturity, self-victimization, and self-centeredness. This syndrome affects not only the emotional but also the moral and spiritual dimensions of the psyche and if indulged leads to generalized personality deterioration. Therapeutically, a holistic approach, simultaneously addressing the emotional, moral, and spiritual components of the psyche, offers the best opportunity for overcoming homosexuality. De-egocentrization and personality maturity, including the development of mature manhood/ womanhood, are the goals of therapy.

Here’s a thought. If you do not agree with Church teachings, worship somewhere else.
The apostates are coming! The apostates are coming!
Same sex isolation
Same sex molestation
Very very few are born that way. If a homosexual projects overtly stereotypical homosexual behavior as if they want to make sure everyone knows it, they definitely were not born that way.
I’m sure a large percent that attended had nothing to do with the school.
The HS chaplain thru the nun under the bus. Disgusting.
then go to school at a non-catholic institution. Next we'll have a freaking on-line petition for the nun to 'resign.'
They want to destroy the traditional church,and replace it with something that approves of their horrendous lifestyle.
In 3,2,1....the US Catholic caves....who knew we were there yet
“Heres a thought. If you do not agree with Church teachings, worship somewhere else.”
I always thought it was just me who saw dissenters as idiots.
so, they go to a catholic church that believes that the pope is infalable because gods speaks through him. so, their argument is we want you to change your teachings that de facto come from god, so we can worship god as we see fit.
just never got that logic.
It can't get any simpler than that.
These bitching people are apostates and are not catholic. The father of lies is loving this.
You got that right.
there’s something seriously wrong these parents and their teenagers. They can leave this school if they don’t like its theology.
That the school is having a meeting on complaints about its theology is a wrong move unless they’re gonna change their theology.
They need to pound sand.
It was a mistake to have this meeting. Nothing good was going to come of it. Send a letter stating the doctrine of the Church and be done with it. If they don’t like it they can leave.
liberals are proud to make history with obama and gay marriage. they now want to make history by pressuring the catholic church to embrace gay marriage, abortion, and wealth redistribution.
I’m glad you quoted from the abstract. The sister is right on the money.
I agree with others. Why would you pay to send your kids to catholic school if you don’t want them to be taught in the catholic tradition?
these sissy kids and parents really think pope francis is on their side. thus they stay in the catholic church to help the pope change the church.
God bless Sister Jane Dominic Laurel!
Same here. It seems idiotic to me to claim membership in church if you don’t believe what that church teaches. At that point, there seems just two options. 1) Find a church that teaches what you are willing to believe, or 2) start your own church and teach whatever you want.
In the modern view, truth is what the majority says it is. Secular opinion trumps God’s Word. Persecution of Christians is on the rise, because so many have rebelled against God. Jesus said they would hate His followers because they hate Him.
‘Why would you pay to send your kids to catholic school if you dont want them to be taught in the catholic tradition?’
In most major cities the Catholic High Schools have the best academic performance, graduation rates, college acceptance, most skilled and successful athletic programs and most admittance to the best colleges.
They also are a very high status for these parents.

BREAKING NEWS: Aquinas College throws Catholic nun under the bus for daring to tell the truth about homosexuality.
She speaks no more. You will never hear another word from this brave Catholic teacher. Another day, another Catholic ruined for daring to speak the truth. Satan is smiling.
“The events around the recent talk by Sister Jane Dominic Laurel, O.P. in Charlotte, NC have produced a great deal of speculation from many sides. Among the commentators, there are few who were actually present to hear the talk, which was not recorded.
It is the firm belief of Aquinas College that all men and women are created in Gods image and likeness and are made with a capacity to love and be loved. The College supports the Catholic Churchs teachings which are open to the diverse needs and desires of all, which must be considered in light of eternal truths.
We support and affirm that every man and woman, regardless of his or her state in life, deserves respect, and that the health of any culture is gauged according to the capacity of its members to uphold their own beliefs while respecting the beliefs of others. The Colleges patron, St. Thomas Aquinas, was known for his ability to thoughtfully consider all things and retain what is true, regardless of the source of that truth.
We believe it is our privilege to bring the best aspects of our faith tradition to bear on the moral and cultural questions of the present age. In her presentation, Sister Jane Dominic spoke clearly on matters of faith and morals. Her deviation into realms of sociology and anthropology was beyond the scope of her expertise. Sister is a trained theologian from a Pontifical University and has the credentials to contribute to scholarly bodies of work. This she has done in the past with distinction. The unfortunate events at Charlotte Catholic High School are not representative of the quality of Sisters academic contributions or the positive influence that she has had on her students. The students at Charlotte Catholic were unprepared, as were their parents, for the topic that Sister was asked to deliver. The consequence was a complete misrepresentation of the schools intention to bring a message that would enlighten and bring freedom and peace.
There are no words that are able to reverse the harm that has been caused by these comments. The community of Aquinas College is saddened by this extreme outcome and wishes to reiterate that this is not something the College condones or desires to create. There is division where there should be unity. The events and discussions that have transpired over the last two weeks reflect that there is something in this that surpasses an ordinary high school assembly.
Sister Jane Dominic has cancelled her speaking engagements and, at her request, is preparing to begin a sabbatical from teaching at Aquinas College. It is our sincere hope that the community of Charlotte Catholic High School will soon begin a process of healing and renewal, and that all who have been affected by this event will be drawn into profound reconciliation as we approach this great season that commemorates the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ”

Here was the firs statement put out by Aquinas College. Said nothing about her doing anything wrong. Then the heat, the backbone started melting, and she was thrown under the bus. Statement was changed to make the pro-homo liberal parents happy, and in in the process ruin this Catholic educators career in teaching.
