Seattle Archbishop Sartain: “The archdiocese supports their decision. The decision has been misunderstood and mischaracterized by some, and we now have an opportunity to help our students learn even more about Catholic teaching.”

“Leaders of Catholic schools are charged with the responsibility of both imparting and modeling” the Catholic church’s teaching, he said, adding that the decision by the board and administrators of Eastside, an independent Catholic school, asking Zmuda to resign “was made after a great deal of prayer and consultation.”

“In no way was their goal to be discriminatory to anyone but to be faithful to their mission as a Catholic school,” the archbishop said. “The archdiocese supports their decision. The decision has been misunderstood and mischaracterized by some, and we now have an opportunity to help our students learn even more about Catholic teaching.”

    Here in lies the heart of the Problem of the Catholic Church. That they would have to publicly defend their decision to fire a sodomite. In a true masculine world that sodomite would have never been hired in the first place. The response of the Leaders is so weak an pathetic is sad. Their almost apologizing for carrying out a moral responsibility they have to their community and children.
