I nearly thought this was an archived article from like 1953. But no, it's a recent one from February 2008, yes, 2008! Way to go Kansas and the Catholic church!

It's actually NOT the Catholic church - they do not condone this.
For the point, read:
Quote:
The Activities Association said it is considering whether to take action against the private religious school. St. Mary's Academy, about 25 miles northwest of Topeka, is owned and operated by the Society of St. Pius X, which follows older Roman Catholic laws. The society's world leader, the late Archbishop Marcel Lefebvre, was excommunicated by Pope John Paul II in the late 1980s.


So while this may have been a problem previous to 1980, the current pope & Catholics do NOT abide by it. This is a group of fundies who may call themselves Catholics, but are not recognized by the pope. Kind of like how mormonism split up, though the fundies for that give them all a bad name too.

Stupid Fundies.

Also, wtf is up with Kansas???

If that is indeed the school's written policy


I lol'd.

Parents pay a buttload of money to send their kids to this private school. The school uses this money to pay alleged professionals to sit around discussing this.

"Any new business?"
"Our math textbooks are out of date, why they don't even have information on - "
"Stow it, Jones! What if a WOMAN ends up ref'ing our MENS basketball games! Fuck you and your math - we could be sending these kids to hell!"
