No doubt, you remember the story of the children in Boulder being denied a Catholic education because their parents are lesbians. Boulder, of course, is part of the Denver archdiocese where Archbishop Charles J. Chaput seems to cover in the name of Catholic orthodoxy some Christian notions about compassion and the need to shy away from judgments. (“Judge not, lest you be judged” - Lk 6: 27-38).
Well,there's more anti-gay activity going on in the Denver archdiocese. Gays, of course, are easy targets, easy scape goats for other failings. This time the firing of an out-of-closet lesbian theology teacher after 28 years of service to the church.
