TKC BREAKING NEWS!!! WAVE OF ANTI-CATHOLIC HATE EMERGES AFTER PRAIRIE VILLAGE PETITION DEMANDS SAME-SEX ACCEPTANCE FROM ST. ANN SCHOOL!!!
As St. Patrick's Day approaches it's important to remember that hostility toward the Irish was often justified by way of intolerance against their faith. Anti-Catholicism has historical roots in American nativism that is often denounced by progressives in current conversations about immigration. However, some of the very same hostility toward Catholics has resurfaced from advocates for LGBT rights after a Prairie Village church declined admission of a student pushed by same-sex parents.
Background on the story:
"A petition signed by more than 1,000 catholic parishioners at both St. Ann Catholic Church in Prairie Village and more than 20 other parishes in the metro, all disagreeing with the decision by St. Ann to exclude students based on the sexual orientation of their parents."
Credit where it's due, Pitch reporter David Hudnall's tweet sparked the MSM wave of interest in the story.
But . . .
AMID PROGRESSIVE OUTRAGE AGAINST SAME-SEX DISCRIMINATION, COUNTLESS COMMENTS VILIFY THE CATHOLIC CHURCH AND THEIR BELIEVERS!!!
To start with, in comments reacting to Mr. Hudnall's journalistic tweet the anti-catholic acrimony is palpable.
Here's a look at a few choice comments that might be seen as hate speech if they were directed against any other belief system:
"On the other hand, if your a pedophile priest the “church” will happily conceal your crimes and ignore your victims."
"The child is better off as far away from Catholicism and the Catholic Church, as possible. They're monsters."
"Ah, the Payday Loan Church! Why does this not surprise me? WWJD: Stay away if you are gay but please show up with your dirty money......."
From that point, a wave of anti-Catholic sentiment In "perfect" Prairie Village has emerged in one social media thread after the next as reaction to this story intensifies.
And so, the cycle of hatred continues with quite a few advocates for "inclusion" expressing outright hostility and contempt for a faith community that hoped to avoid confusion and conflict that would have unfairly burdened a student.
