Catholic School Removes Statues of Jesus and Mary Lest They Offend

To be “inclusive” means to exclude anything leftists don’t like. This includes anything that reminds them of Christianity — even at a Catholic school:

An independent Catholic school in San Anselmo, California, has sparked the ire of some parents after officials removed and relocated a large number of religious statues, reportedly including those of Jesus and Mary, in order not to alienate children of other faiths.

The campaign to deface and tear down the statues of anyone progressives accuse of having failed to comply with their ideology has many wondering where it will stop. Statues of Jesus and Mary being removed from a Catholic school answers the question. It won’t ever stop, because liberals will always find something to be offended by.

Unsurprisingly, some parents are fuming over San Domenico School’s decision:

In an email to the school’s board of directors, Dominican Sisters of San Rafael and the head of school, Shannon Fitzpatrick objected to the removal of the statues and other steps the school has taken in an effort to make the school more inclusive.

“Articulating an inclusive foundation appears to mean letting go of San Domenico’s 167-year tradition as a Dominican Catholic school and being both afraid and ashamed to celebrate one’s heritage and beliefs,” wrote Fitzpatrick, whose 8-year-old son attends the school.

She added, “In our time here, the word ‘Catholic’ has been removed from the mission statement, sacraments were removed from the curriculum, the lower school curriculum was changed to world religions, the logo and colors were changed to be ‘less Catholic,’ and the uniform was changed to be less Catholic.”

Like Robert E. Lee, Catholicism is in the process of being erased. Nominally Catholic educrats are happy to take part, proving yet again that at some point you have to choose whether you are a Christian or a moonbat. No one can serve two gods.

Next target for the anti-statue brigade?

    ” … reportedly including those of Jesus and Mary, in order not to alienate children of other faiths.” It’s about making money from tuition, folks. If Jesus came back today, he wouldn’t bother throwing penny ante money changers out of the temple. He’d head straight for the nearest Catholic church!

    They’ve all gone insane! What are people who are “offended” by Jesus and Mary DOING at a Catholic school? And WHY would the school admin cave in like that and OFFEND JESUS AND MARY by snubbing/hiding them?

    –Give us a friggin’ break!

    It’s not about making money; it’s about destroying the Catholic Church.

    These righteous libs were just being preemptive. California will be outlawing Christianity soon enough. This was just getting ahead of the curve.

    The Church, with all of its aspects, is the Bride of Christ and the Risen Son of God is her Lord. Where do these Church officials get off denying the very well spring of our faith.

  14. Frank says:

    I’m a recovering Catholic. My comment was about the parochial school being a profit center rather than a religious institution.

  15. Frank says:

    The Church is a business.

    I’ve yet to see any modern ‘Catholic’ school be a profit center. Liberation theology centers? Yes. Profit centers? Not even close. I wouldn’t at all be surprised if the super majority of ‘Catholic’ schools still around even turn a profit.

  21. Roy Hobbes says:

    Face it people… this school (and many others like it) simply aren’t Catholic.

    The following ominous quote is attributed to Cardinal Pacelli concerning the future of the Church from Msgr. Georges Roche and Philippe Saint Germain’s Pie XII devant l’Histoire(published in 1972 by Robert Laffont, Paris) p. 52

    I am worried by the Blessed Virgin’s messages to Lucy of Fatima. This persistence of Mary about the dangers which menace the Church is a Divine warning against the suicide of altering the Faith, in Her liturgy, Her theology and Her soul. … I hear all around me innovators who wish to dismantle the Sacred Chapel, destroy the universal flame of the true Faith of the Church, reject Her ornaments and make Her feel remoòrse for Her historical past. A day will come when the civilized world will deny its God, when the Church will doubt as Peter doubted. She will be tempted to believe that man has become God. In our churches, Christians will search in vain for the red lamp where God awaits them. Like Mary Magdalene, weeping before the empty tomb, they will ask, ‘Where have they taken Him?’

    — Cardinal Eugenio Pacelli (the future Pope Pius XII)

  25. VisPacem says:

    I don’t know about your own experiences, but I went to parochial schools when a community of nuns charged a pittance per month for teaching us extremely well and instilling into us not only the Faith but also natural virtues.
    Each had a teaching degree and was very competent in the subjects and levels they taught.

    And for any family that had more than one child there was a discount from that meager $10 a month. The nuns raised their own livestock, did all their own chores, managed to live a liturgical life, and somehow survived for decades in the 150-year old structure they had inherited with a terribly leaking roof.

    Of course, all they wore was a single black simple habit that was laundered, starched, and ironed by themselves.

    But the only profit concerned what became of those they taught and informed for life, and there certainly was no monetary profit for the nuns or their institute.
