The regressive progressive left has taken the art of social hysteria to new depths. It began with the National Flag and the National Anthem. From there it became snowflakes looking for coloring books and safe spaces. Not willing to let any opportunity of division escape unused, memorials to the Confederate soldiers was next attacked. it wasn’t but just a few days and Revolutionary War patriots were being attacked. Predictably the Christian Church has received new assaults. If you are anywhere on the right side of the aisle, you are now a racist, homophobe, Islamophobe, and everything else degrading. But now a Catholic School has self-inflicted its own wounds by removing its religious, The reasoning by the school is pathetic, as you will read.
As Written by Allen B. West:
If there’s one thing you can count on the progressive socialist left to do it’s overreach. Y’all REALLY thought the thing with the statues was just about those mean ol’ Confederate generals? Heck, the leftists are so upset – get this — the black student assembly at the University of Southern California wants the name of their mascot’s HORSE changed. Yep, after all, it has the same name, spelled differently, as General Robert E. Lee’s horse, Traveller.
But this other story out of California just shows how completely unhinged the left has become. Oh by the way… anyone heard Nancy Pelosi condemn her dad as a white supremacist and racist? He did participate in the dedication of Confederate statues of Generals Robert E. Lee and Thomas “Stonewall” Jackson in Maryland. But I digres…
As reported by Fox News, “A California Catholic school is facing a backlash from parents after officials took down some religious statues — including one of Mary and baby Jesus — over concerns that they were “alienating” prospective students. The head of the San Domenico School in San Anselmo said parents of some prospective students who visited the campus – which was founded in 1850 and serves 671 students grades K-12 — expressed concern about the religious figures, according to the Marin Independent Journal.
“If you walk on the campus and the first thing you confront is three or four statues of St. Dominic or St. Francis, it could be alienating for that other religion, and we didn’t want to further that feeling,” Amy Skewes-Cox, who chairs the school’s board of trustees.
Cecily Stock, who is head of the school, said most students are not Catholic. “Over the last few years we’ve had fewer Catholic students as part of the community and a larger number of students of various faith traditions,” Stock said. “Right now about 80 percent of our families do not identify as Catholic.” An official, who described the institution as California’s oldest independent school and first Catholic school, told Fox News a “large number of religious statues” were recently relocated to other parts of the school’s campus and some were donated to “appreciative recipients.”
Folks, this is the pure unadulterated definition of FUBAR! And it could only happen in California and in the Bay Area, Marin County.
So, let me speak on this topic from experience. The oldest black Catholic parish in Atlanta is Our Lady of Lourdes. It is located in the Old Fourth Ward neighborhood across Boulevard Avenue at the intersection with Auburn Avenue, which is home to Ebenezer Baptist Church. The birthplace of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. is right around the corner, and his final resting spot, along with Coretta Scott King, is a stone’s throw from Our Lady of Lourdes.
It was there that my parents, Herman “Buck” and Elizabeth “Snooks” West decided their middle son (yours truly) would attend elementary school. See if you can pick me out in this picture.
Later they would decide their youngest son, Arlan, would attend St. Thomas Moore in Decatur.
Now, we weren’t Catholic; we were United Methodist. We attended Fort Street UMC located on Boulevard Avenue. When my parents visited Our Lady of Lourdes and St Thomas Moore, they weren’t offended by the Christian symbols of the Catholic church. They wanted Arlan and myself to attain the best possible education in order to ensure our success. And during my years attending Our Lady of Lourdes School, I participated in all the Catholic masses and learned the liturgy of the Catholic church. The only thing I did not do, couldn’t do, was the be an altar boy because I was not Catholic. It never offended me, nor did I feel any semblance of discrimination. Actually, I was an acolyte at my home church so it was all good.
The fact that this Catholic school, San Domenico, would remove the very statues that defines it as a Catholic school is beyond belief, it is absurd, clearly delusional. The fact that the reason given was concerns over “alienating” prospective students is highly disturbing. It reflects a parish ashamed of who they are, and that for which they are supposed to stand………..
