8. Yes, forgot to mention that.

It's not a secondary mandate either.

3. I went to catholic school for 12 years and I am a bleeding heart social justice liberal

I think it is their upbringing at home. The demographics of that area are ruby red repuke and that would explain the maga heats and attitudes.

4. Totally disagree ..

I am the product of a Catholic education, and do not display or condone any of these tendencies. Has the Catholic Church abused boys. Yes, my brother was one of them. But at no time did any of my teachers, administrators or pastors promote or condone racism or sexism. The parents play a large (if not major) part in what happened yesterday. Add in the Toddler-in-Chief's fomenting of these abhorrent traits, and you have a recipe for disaster.

Are there fundamentally religious schools who promote this agenda? Yes. But there are just as many (if not more) which promulgate tolerance, acceptance, inclusivity, compassion and empathy. Let's not throw the baby out with the bath water.

12. Both my parents and 14 aunts and uncles went to Catholic school

and only one of them ended up a Republican.

Of course some of that was reaction to the authoritarian traditions at school but I also think there's a strong tradition in most Catholic immigrant communities of sticking up for the little guys, pursuing social justice and having compassion.

On the other hand, I also think that private education (not just religious education) is a blight on our country that perpetuates social divides and inequality.

5. That is not true

I attended a private religious school which was very progressive and instilled in us a strong sense of caring for others in our community, justice and tikkun olam, an obligation to heal the world. Not all religious schools are filled with hateful zealots. There are racist atheists too.

6. Can't happen. Remember the separation of church and state? Works both ways.

11. Then their parents who share these traits can home school

them. Then their parents will end up home schooling their kids so they grow up with their shared values. I am sure they will have fun doing that. They can all learn about guns at the same time, how efficient.

14. Boy, they really failed, then, with the Obama kids,

Since it was, at least in part kids from that private religious school who convinced President Obama to change his mind on same-gender marriage.



Seriously, how about not painting with such a broad brush. I know a lot of very fine people who were educated in catholic schools. Just like every other private school - some are good, some are bad, it is not inherently the religious or non-relogious nature of those private schools that influences the character of it's graduates

16. I disagree

Your statement is so biased! I wish so-called liberal thinkers would not resort to banning something just because they disagree. That's fascist thinking. We are a big enough society to tolerate and live with other ways of life. Un-American! BTW I and most members of my family were raised in religious schools and are very liberal and progressive. Generalizations never are valid.

18. They're not going to be banned

Plus the school says they're going to investigate this incident.

You might have a point if there's no disciplinary action taken. I think the kid will probably be expelled however.

19. I attended Catholic School 1-12, Catholic college, taught in Catholic School and worked at a

Catholic University. In my entire experience, I never encountered any activity or situation that could be remotely construed as racist, sexist, xenophobic or homophobic. The nuns would not tolerate the aforementioned behavior. I am proud of my Catholic school experience as it educated and prepared me for what is important in life.
