I was a student at a Catholic university, taught at a Catholic elementary school for a year, and a Catholic high school for two, within the last decade. Can't imagine this happening at any of those places. Which is not to say that our diocese couldn't be tone-deaf at times, but DAMN...

The kids are all right, don't let these pigs get away with this nonsense without ruining their day :)

Reading the comments at the source, most of them are backing up the kids. That's a good sign.

Kids: 1. Bigots: 0.

Someday I want to have kids with that kind of character and conscience.

According to the article on Huff Po I read, the archbishop of Minneapolis is rabidly homophobic even for a rabid Catholic.

I was confused by the title for a second. How can homophobia ever go right?

Excellent, ... no, brilliant way to alienate the one generation the RCC desperately needs the most. Kudos to the young adults who stood up to the bigots.

re: #8 Spocomptonite

Well, the school assembly was supposed to "educate" the students on the glories of heterosexual marriage, and the evils of teh gay and also adoption, for some reason. Since this is a Catholic school, the lecturers were most likely expecting little resistance. Instead, they came off as a bunch of stupid bigots, mainly because some of the students were willing and able to stand up for what's right.

It should also be noted that the assembly was for the senior students, who are almost old enough to vote, and elections are coming up. I can't help but think that this whole exercise was meant to prepare a new batch of voters for the cause. Instead, they've alienated a number of future voters.
