A 14 year old boy was suspended from Western Hills High School in Texas for saying he thought that “being a homosexual is wrong.”

Can you believe this?
The boy’s name is Dakota Ary, and here is his story:
According to news reports, during a German class, Dakota’s teacher started talking about religion and homosexuality in Germany, and even posted a picture on the wall of two men kissing.

Dakota turned to a friend and said he was a Christian and that “being a homosexual is wrong.”
The teacher reportedly overheard his comment and sent him to the principal's office.
Then, the assistant principal at Fort Worth’s Western Hills High School called Dakota’s mother and said her son was given an “in-school suspension,” plus two-days of full suspension for what he had said in class against homosexuality.

After several protests, the school agreed to revoke the suspension so that Dakota could play in an upcoming football game.

God fearing Americans must speak out NOW, while theirs is still freedom to do so. Otherwise, soon, everyone who disagrees with homosexuality may be forced into silence. And perhaps even punished. Or jailed.

People in Canada and Sweden have already been arrested and jailed for speaking out against homosexuality. We must not let that happen here.

Thanks for posting this, Father. People need to know how dangerous this is to free speech. If they don't fight now, soon they won't be able to.

As Catholics, we disagree. Per the Catechism,

2358 The number of men and women who have deep-seated homosexual tendencies is not negligible. This inclination, which is objectively disordered, constitutes for most of them a trial. They must be accepted with respect, compassion, and sensitivity. Every sign of unjust discrimination in their regard should be avoided. These persons are called to fulfill God's will in their lives and, if they are Christians, to unite to the sacrifice of the Lord's Cross the difficulties they may encounter from their condition.

Not to neglect this, from the paragraph immediately preceding: Basing itself on Sacred Scripture, which presents homosexual acts as acts of grave depravity,140 tradition has always declared that "homosexual acts are intrinsically disordered."141 They are contrary to the natural law. They close the sexual act to the gift of life. They do not proceed from a genuine affective and sexual complementarity. Under no circumstances can they be approved.
