Catholic school denies entry to lesbian couple’s children because marriage is “between a man and a woman”

May 30, 2018

By Bailey Vogt

A Catholic priest denied a lesbian couple’s children from attending his private school due to their homosexual marriage.

The Charlotte Observer reports that the mothers (who wished to remain anonymous) applied to St. Francis Catholic School in Hilton Head Island, S.C., this spring, but subsequently received a rejection email.

When one of the mothers called the priest, Rev. Mike Oenbrink, to question why her children were denied, he told her: “Your children have been denied because you’re homosexual. If we admit your children, it will send a bad message to the other families.”

The two mothers have been married since 2009 and the decision to deny them has apparently created controversy among parents in Hilton Head. However, Rev. Oenbrink refused to apologize for the rejection, saying the application was denied because the two women were married.

  • @OP – A Catholic priest denied a lesbian couple’s children from attending his private school due to their homosexual marriage.

    I would have to ask, “What sort of deep indoctrination, would motivate married lesbians to want to send their children to such a centre of bigotry or to listen to such a delusional ignorant priest?”

  • “The sins of the father (or mother) will be visited upon the son (or daughter)” or some such crap. The sexuality of the parents has NOTHING to do with the children.

    [Alan4discussion], it’s possibly the only school they are zoned for; but other than that, yeah why?

    “The sins of the father (or mother) will be visited upon the son (or daughter)” or some such crap.

    AIDS and other STIs may well be visited on future generations, but the deluded seem to be able to be fixated the “sins” of ignoring dogma and defying pontificating priests!
    God-delusions are outraged and offended by having their “authority” ignored!

    I think he means the “bad” message, that Catholic pseudo-science dogma is crap, and that pontificating priests are circular-thinking science-duffer ignoramuses!

  • On the bright side, this lesbian couple can heave a sigh of relief as they realize to what superstitious indoctrination their children were almost exposed. I trust they have since been wiser in their choice of school.

    because marriage is “between a man and a woman”

    . . . . In parts of Europe – since the RCC took over religion in the Roman empire!

    However:-

    The history of polygamy dates back to a long time ago, since this has been practiced for many centuries by cultures from all over the world.
    The Hebrew society has partially accepted polygamy and there are traces that say that it happened in the classical China too.
    The polygamy was also encountered sporadically at the Native Americans, in the West African continent, Polynesia, India and the ancient Greece.

    The polygamy was widely accepted throughout the world until the Roman Empire and the Roman Catholic Church has imposed the rules of having just one wife, but multiple other lovers were the norm.

    The polygamy was widely accepted during the last two thousands of years in the Sub-Saharan Africa also.

    However in the Hebrew Bible, the polygamy was permitted only if a man has more than one wife, at the same time if a woman had more than one husband, it was seen as adultery.

    In the United States the polygamy was allowed back at the early years of the history of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (which was also known as LDS Church).
    However all this ended back in the year 1890 when Wilford Woodruff was the president. But officially it was the year 1899 when the members of this church began to be thrown out for being polygamous.
    This way there were a few different and new sects that separated from the LDS Church that continue to practice the polygamy even if the polygynous marriages have started to be an illegal practice in the United States.
