PRAIRIE VILLAGE, Kan. — About 1,000 people have signed a petition after a Catholic grade school in suburban Kansas City denied admission to a same-sex couple’s toddler.
The Kansas City Star tales that the Rev. Craig Maxim knowledgeable households in a letter last month that he sought guidance from the Archdiocese of Kansas City in Kansas when the same-sex couple requested to enroll their toddler in kindergarten at St. Ann Catholic School in Prairie Village, Kansas. He acknowledged the archdiocese steered in direction of accepting the child on account of the dad and mother could not “model behaviors and attitudes consistent with the Church’s teachings.”
About half of the people who signed the petition to Archbishop Joseph Naumann and the archdiocesan schools superintendent are St. Ann members. Catholic schools nationwide are divided over whether or not or to not confess same-sex ’ youngsters.
