Critique from ‘The View’ of Boulder Catholic school was opportunistic, Catholic League says

.- A Colorado Catholic school which told two children under the guardianship of two homosexual partners they could not re-enroll on account of their guardians’ relationship has drawn “inevitable” criticism from the hosts of “The View” because they “never miss an opportunity to rip the Catholic Church,” the Catholic League says.

Several weeks ago staff members at Sacred Heart of Jesus Church in Boulder, Colorado were told that that an attending preschooler and kindergartner, whose two guardians are lesbian women, would not be re-enrolled after they finished the 2010-2011 school year.

In response to mostly negative media coverage, Archbishop of Denver Charles J. Chaput explained the decision, saying “If parents don’t respect the beliefs of the Church, or live in a manner that openly rejects those beliefs, then partnering with those parents becomes very difficult, if not impossible.”

On Tuesday the hosts of the daytime ABC talk show “The View” criticized the school, prompting a response from Catholic League president Bill Donohue.

Donohue said he thought it was “inevitable” the issue would become a topic on “The View” because the hosts “never miss an opportunity to rip the Catholic Church whenever it fails to ratify the secular thinking in the dominant culture.”

Noting that one of the show’s hosts, Joy Behar, predicted they would be hearing from Bill Donohue, which Donohue argued was not surprising.

“If five Catholics with a history of anti-Semitism bashed the house rules of a yeshiva, would it not occasion a news release from Abe Foxman at the ADL?” he asked rhetorically.

Donohue said that none of the hosts upset with the Catholic school is Catholic, while Behar, Elisabeth Hasselbeck and Whoopi Goldberg are all former Catholics. He particularly criticized Hasselbeck, saying she is “still obsessed” with Catholicism.

“Both Behar and Hasselbeck said yesterday that Jesus would not have approved of the Catholic school’s decision. Nice to know they have a pipeline to the Almighty, and that they consider themselves to be tolerant, non-judgmental and without a trace of bigotry.”
