Now, THIS is a CATHOLIC School!
RICHFIELD, Minnesota, (LifeSiteNews.com) – A Minnesota Catholic high school has decided against giving a state legislator an award he was scheduled to receive after the school learned he has consistently supported abortion legislation.
Rep. Paul Thissen, who is running for Minnesota governor, was expecting to be presented with the Academy of Holy Angels (AHA) Activities Hall of Fame Alumnus Award last month, when he received a call from AHA president Jill Reilly asking him to withdraw his name.
When he refused, he was told the award would be revoked due to his position on abortion. Article
I congratulate this school for standing up for the faith and not yielding to this pro-abortion politician. The U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) in 2004 directed that pro-abortion politicians “should not be given awards, honors or platforms which would suggest support for their actions” by Catholic schools. Such politicians are considered automatically excommunicated from the Church. All Catholic schools need to comply with this document.
