Edit: it's difficult to come up for new things to say about this, it happens so regularly that Jesuit termites are allowed to gnaw at the Church and cause scandal, without the slightest consequence on the part of the community, the students, the parents or the Jesuit leadership. Perhaps Pope Francis will make a quiet and humble intervention?
Anyway, here's another Jesuit priest who feels emboldened to promote terrible sins under the pretense of false charity. He encourages people not to be outraged by his endorsement and even cites the offensive USCCB statement "Always Our Children". Here is the story:
McQuaid Jesuit High School, an all boy Catholic high school in Brighton, NY is extending a welcoming hand to two gay teens and allowing them to attend the Junior Ball as a couple. When the boys asked permission to attend the dance as a couple, a petition supporting the two was promptly placed online, and school president Father Edward Salmon sent a letter to parents regarding the teens' request. The Advocate details the letter below:
March 27, 2013
Dear Sisters and Brothers of our McQuaid Jesuit Community:
Our new Holy Father, Pope Francis, in the homily for his Inaugural Mass, had encouraging and inviting words: "Today amid so much darkness we need to see the light of hope and to be men and women who bring hope to others. To protect creation and to protect every man and every woman, to look upon them with tenderness and love, is to open up a horizon of hope, it is to let a ray of light break through heavy clouds."
