"Swift and sharp", huh? Like a vicious sexually repressed nun wielding a ruler? That is what they deserve.

What's your excuse for being so obsessed with (male) homosexuals and homosexuality?

It's a rhetorical question. We know your type.

The misogynistic, homophobic, authoritarian RCC and its schools are allowed to behave in this manner by law - if they don't get government money for vouchers, that is, or should be - but the RCC and such schools will become pariahs.

Hey filthy bigot, you didn't address the simple question:

Why are you allegedly "religious" freaks so obsessed by homosexuality as compared to the attention you devote to those who violate the _Commandments_ regarding coveting, taking the lord's name in vain, etc?

Because it's about your personal, psychological problem, not scripture.

We've got to send you sick xstain mullahs back to the previous centuries you came from asap.

You can take away all the religions away and all the texts and you would still be left with those that find many things offensive. You would still in fact be left with the choice of what is right and what is wrong.
Just because something offends you, that does not mean it is necessarily "wrong". The things which make YOU happy and sad are not going to be the same for everyone, and they don't stand as everyone's ideal examples of right and wrong.

This also does not take away in the history of foreverness that two 'males' cannot conceive a child
That does not make them "wrong" or evil. Many people cannot conceive a child. Many people CAN, who should NOT.

and because of the 'choice' that they have made they have abrogated the right to be provided with a child thus denying the child's basic 'human rights' to be 'endowed' with a female mother.
Gay people are not gay because of a "choice". At what point in your life did you "choose" which gender you would be attracted to? Was that EVER a choice that you made? We don't make that choice either. People don't have that kind of control over their attractions.

A man or a woman who has Down syndrome is allowed to marry. It is not against the law, no one could prevent them. If one of the parents has Down syndrome, the child would have a 50% chance of having it. Yet this is perfectly legal. No one would discuss what they have "abrogated". No one would argue for the rights of THAT child to have unaflicted parents.

Your arguments are hypocrisy. They focus, as such arguements always do, on what gay couples would not be capable of. Yet, we NEVER hear the same capabilites held up as standards for heterosexuals. Whether they can conceive or not, whether they WANT to or not, whether they would make competent parents or not, whether they are felons or drug addicts or multiply divorced, straight people get a PASS. Every time. None of these issues are EVER levied at heterosexuals, while gay people are excoriated simply for not being able to conceive. Even though it is RAISING a child, not conceiving one, that is more important in being a good parent.

A church can teach anything it chooses, legally.

But, in a country where freedom of speech is valued, such as ours, people who don't agree with it's teachings have the right to discus, dissect, publicize, and protest those teachings in any legal way they like.

The Catholic School,along with the church,has a moral right to protect its students.from what they see as evil.
The Church has gone through enough problems wih priest molesting "Boys" and isn't that what homosexuals of the male gender go after?.
Would you let a theif do your banking,or a pedifile take care of your childer?.The Bible says men's hearts will be turned against things that are rightous in the last days.I believe those days are here.The end times are approaching us,the signs are happening....I believe the Church hates the sin of Homosexuality,not the sinner,but the Church has a right to protect,and inforce what God's word speaks against...The Secular Left wants to impose it's belief upon everyone,yet they preach tolerance!!........B/S....Can' t have it both ways!....And be fair..

But thats it!.But you don't have the right to "force"your beliefs either upon those who don't agree,or goes against their teachings,which is gauranteed with the Constitution,and true seperation of Church and State....The State has no right to impose it's will upon the Catholic Church,or vise versa..But it is the teachings of Gods word that Homosexuality is a Sin.And an Open Homo teaching in a religious school poses a threat to the welfare,and moral attitude of that institution.....Show some tolerance you brain dead lliberals......Homo's didn't come from the land of Homo,they are a perversion,and a choice made by free spirited individuals......Like every choice we humans make in life.....And we as individuals have a right to accept it,or deny it.......And as a Republic we have the right to approve Homosexuals in society or oppose them,majority rules........We are a representative Republic,last time I checked,despite the idiot who thinks he is a Dictator Obama !!.......Society can't do much to stop them,but it;s not the right of the Government to make people of religion accept them.....
