i am so glad the school turned the lesos away from the prom they did the right and moral thing this is part of the way all gay men an d women try to push their agenda trying to force their lifestyle on everyone and i think 86 per cent of america do not want gay marriage but obama wants gay and leso couples sick sick sick

Not allowed into prom, principal said he followed rule of catholic church, I would love to see this rule book that bans gays and lesbians but allows preists to molest young men and alter boys.

More than likely, Lexington Catholic will face a lawsuit over this incident. And, in the end, they will be ordered to pay out a settlement over this.

Private church school. They can stand up for what they believe. I am sure it was a difficult decision but it's their call. At least they have the backbone to do so and not be manipulated.

These girls have the right to be into each other. It may or may not be a representative,wise or appropriate choice for them. Time will tell. They don't have the right to push it on private organizations who have principled objections to their choices.

Every teacher in every school knows a lot about the kids they have in their class. The higher ups decision to ignore until now to express the schools concern & standards at their prom is a lack of a spine.

Private school or not, my guess is that this incident is soon to catch national attention. How the media chooses to come down on Lexington Catholic will be interesting. With the recent uproar of a local T-shirt printing fiasco, it may not be kind.

And I will bet that local, and national, lawyers are lining up to get hold of this case regarding those 2 young ladies.

Lexington Catholic should have bitten the bullet, allowed the prom to go on as planned and it would have never came to light.

No...it's appropriate action after the girls decided to push it to a point where a decision had to be made.

You may not agree with it, but it is the school/institution's choice. It also is none of your business. You can whine and march all you want. Separation of church and state along with no taxation without representation are the founding principles of this country.

You are all in a snit over the girls rights. What about the rights of the people who support the church/school? They have a right to see their religious beliefs upheld and enforced.

There's no case here, only some low-life lawyer seeking attention would take this on. It's a PRIVATE school! I had my kids there for years and we didn't agree with all of their policies but we made the decision to go there knowing the policies and restrictions. People ask me what I think of LC and I tell them it's NOT for everyone... but it is a great alternative, and no, you don't have to be catholic to go there. I hope the admin tells the Wright girl to politely find a new school for next year. It is not the right school for her.

While Lexington Catholic may be a private school, they must also abide by the law. Denying those 2 girls admission to the prom is NO different that denying 2 blacks to the prom, 2 Mexicians or 2 Orientals. Whether people so choose to like it or not, that is the law.

In regard to a lawyer taking this case. Let me assure you that these 2 ladies more than likely have been contacted by quite a few lawyers concerning this case. This is a no-brainer for any lawyer. It is only a matter if they want to sue the school should this case ever go to court.

While Lexington Catholic may feel they were right regarding this case, someone over there had better be ready to offer an apology and write out a rather nice check.
it was a set up

Private school-- get it private, they accept no government funds, it is owned by the Catholic Church. Students apply there and agree to abide the rules of the school prior to acceptance. There is no law that says gays allowed. It's no different than a private country club exe. Augusta National ( No women members), there are private clubs that have no black members. It's not against the law. You have no idea what you are talking about.

1. It is a private school and they can make their own rules. The bible speaks against same sex relationships. The catholic church does too. Right, wrong or indifferent, it is what it is
2. Race is not the issue, don't bring it into it
3. What is the difference when the gay community thinks we are wrong thinking they are wrong and vice versa.
4. The school had rules and standards to uphold , they did so.
5. They knew the rules but chose to ignore them.
6. They got what they wanted... Their 15 minutes of fame.
7. Whether the kids are having pre marital sex or not, they are not walking in the door doing it or doing it at dance. BIG DIFFERENCE
8. Had they gone as group and not want to "grandstand" their relationship, they would have been admitted
9. Don't like the rules, don't go to the school
10. Don't like the values of the catholic church don't send the kids to a catholic school
11. Doesn't the news have more important things to do then give these two KIDS their stage time
12. Be who you are but chose your audience. Might end up with egg on face.
13. Every American has the right to be and do what they believe in but that said, no one has a right to challenge people if they don't agree

Time will tell.

My guess is that a lawyer for Lexington Catholic has gotten, or will get, a call from a higher up. The one question will be "How much will this cost us just to make it go away?"

Private or not, this is going to get interesting. Because times are changing as Bob Dylan once said.

The only reason the Augusta stays woman free is because the issue has not been totally pushed. And one day it will. Much as a local country club finally had to break down and admit it's first black.

Your turn.

This is an authority issue.Clearly,the Bible speaks against homosexuality.The school acted upon the beliefs of the Bible,which they believe in the Catholic Church.The girls were told they could not go.Yet they defied authority and went.What did they expect!Yeah,it will end in a lawsuit.I am getting so sick and tired of this gay agenda.They act like spoiled brats when they try to shove their sexuality down our throats and people fight back.Does Kentucky have a sodomy law?

The issue has not been totally pushed because it is not illegal for private institutions that dont accept government money or special tax exemptions, to exclude anyone they want. Idle Hour
choose to allow Sam Bowie to join, and they were not forced by any law or goverment body. The Diocese has already stated their support to ban the same sex couple.

I came her merely to express what I would believe would happen in this case. And I can see no reason why I am wrong.

It does seem that I have tightened up a few arseholes from people who take themselves way too serious. Such as you.

I have nothing else to say on this issue as it will be up the the 2 young women, and their families, if they decide to go any further with this issue. I bet they do.

Stay tuned and try to calm down.

Bye
