What is the homosexual "rainbow" flag doing in a St. Mike's classroom?
(Update: now, we are told the school merely reproduced a photo from another school. As if this answers the question as to what a Catholic school is doing pushing pro-"LGBT" propaganda).
St. Michael's College School, the once venerable Catholic institution, founded in 1852, has surrendered to the homosexual and gender ideologists. The above screenshot, taken from Twitter, was sent to me by a fellow alumnus last night. Irenaeus, has since sent me screenshots of the promotion of homosexuality on St. Mike's Instagram account.
Catholics need to ask the Basilians, who run this school, why St. Mike's supports homosexual activity, when Sacred Scripture, Tradition and the Church condemn homosexual acts as always gravely sinful?
We need to ask the Basilians: what signal are you sending boys and young men, especially in an ALL MALE environment, when you endorse homosexuality?
We need to ask these Basilians: do you self-identify as homosexual? Do you dissent (as evidently you do) from Catholic teaching? Yes, these are tough, but necessary questions. Just who is running the school? Just what influence does big money have on the direction of St. Mike's?
From the Catechism of the Catholic Church:
2357: ... Basing itself on Sacred Scripture, which presents homosexual acts as acts of grave depravity, tradition has always declared that "homosexual acts are intrinsically disordered." They are contrary to the natural law. They close the sexual act to the gift of life. They do not proceed from a genuine affective and sexual complementarity. Under no circumstances can they be approved.
To those suffering from same-sex attraction, the answer is not an encouragement to sin, but rather, to virtue, to holiness: The late Monsignor Foy wrote:
All can pray for homosexuals; we should never deviate from charity towards them while never condoning homosexual activity. We can give homosexuals the example of lives lived in chastity and goodness.
To all homosexuals we say: Peace, Hope, and Joy in your daily pursuit of chastity and holiness. God be with you! May you always keep in your hearts the words of St. Paul, “You are not called to immorality but to holiness".
Friends, we need to contact His Eminence Thomas Cardinal Collins to wrest this school away from these dissenters. It will be tough, perhaps impossible.
We remember that it was the Basilian priest, Fr. Thomas Rosica, who led the charge against Dr. David Mulroney, during the time when His Eminence wanted to reform St. Michael's College, University of Toronto, from its increasingly secular, anti-Catholic academic stance, and decadent student life, respectively. Sadly, Rosica and his allies torpedoed the Cardinal's efforts. It is the same, (now disgraced) priest who was selected by the Basilians as their spokesman for the homosexual gang-rape scandal that broke last Fall at the school. The school has been decadent for years.
Let us expose this grave evil at St. Mike's. Catholic parents wake up! You are being lied to and fooled by dissenting priests who have betrayed Christ, the Church, and the saintly Basilian fathers of old. Priests such as Fr. Volpe, Fr. Enright, Fr. Foy and Fr. Thompson.
