Catholic Parents who send their children to MoCo Public Schools: Are you aware of this?

 

REA(LifeSiteNews) — One of the largest and most radically pro-LGBT school districts in America is indoctrinating children into LGBT ideology as early as age 4 without parents’ consent or even their knowledge.

Montgomery County Public Schools (MCPS), located in the suburbs of Washington, D.C., announced in an email on March 23 that parents can no longer opt their children out of pro-LGBT books and lessons.

The district, which has more than 160,000 students, will not even notify parents before exposing children to transgenderism and homosexuality, according to the email.

“MCPS expects all classrooms to be inclusive and safe spaces for students, including those who identify as LGBTQ+ or have family members in the LGBTQ+ community,” the email said. “A broad representation of personal characteristics within curricular or instructional materials promotes this desired outcome.”

Archdiocese blasts Walter Reed after 'cease and desist' to priests ahead of Holy Week

 

 

Walter Reed National Military Medical Center is receiving backlash after it ended its contract for pastoral care and directed a "cease and desist order" to a community of Franciscan Catholic priests and friars at Holy Name College on March 31, days before Holy Week.

The priests had spent the last two decades ministering to U.S. military personnel, veterans, and their beneficiaries at the medical center. 

 For the complete story, go to The Washington Examiner.   


Note: I bet that faithful Catholic Joe Biden will be right on top of this one.  NOT!

Another Legal Attack on a Catholic Hospital

 Although not in the Archdiocese of Washington, another Catholic hospital has been legally attacked for holding true to the faith.

 

A federal judge in Maryland ruled in favor of a gender-confused woman who sued a Catholic hospital for not removing her healthy uterus.

Judge Deborah Chasanow, a Bill Clinton appointee, ruled that “Jesse” Hammons could continue her lawsuit against University of Maryland St. Joseph Medical Center for denying her request for a hysterectomy in 2019. Hammons is “married” to Lura Groen, a pastor of the left-wing Evangelical Lutheran Church in America.
