An independent Catholic school in the Philadelphia area decided that it could no longer employ its director of religious education because she refuses to abide by the teachings of the Church. Seems like a simple case. Yet a protest has been lodged against the Archdiocese of Philadelphia, even though it does not run this school. Even more bizarre, the critics are led by a loose group of anti-Catholics who are funded by an atheist billionaire. The media, led by the Philadelphia Inquirer, is giving legitimacy to this contrived protest.
Catholic schools, Orthodox Jewish schools, and Muslim schools do not recognize “marriages” between two men or two women, and therefore they do not welcome employees who claim to be married to a person of the same sex. Even editors at the Inquirer should be able to grasp this.
Faithful America says many people want the rogue teacher reinstated. But there is no real organization called Faithful America. Organizations list their address, phone number, fax number, and email address. Faithful America lists none; it is an “online community.” To be specific, no one goes to work each day at Faithful America because there is no place to go!
George Soros, the atheist billionaire, funds Faithful America; he also funds Faith in Public Life, which is associated with this “online community.” These are essentially front groups that pose as religious entities. Faithful America, for instance, has attacked several Catholic bishops and is pro-abortion.
Let’s go over this once more. An employee who violates the tenets of the organization she voluntarily joined is canned, and an organization that is not really an organization, but is greased by the enemy of the employee’s organization, lodges a protest against an organization that does not run the employee’s organization.
We are sending this to all the parishes in the Archdiocese of Philadelphia.
