Not a Joke: Catholic School Removes Statues of Mary, Jesus in the Name of Inclusion

, Accuracy in Academia, 7 Comments

To avoid offending non-Christians, the San Domenico School in California decided to remove statues of Mary, the mother of Jesus Christ, and Jesus Christ.

Seriously? Yes, seriously:

Head of San Domenico School Cecily Stock said the decision was “to make sure that prospective families are aware that we are an independent school,” adding that “[r]ight now about 80 percent of our families do not identify as Catholic.”

Sister Maureen McInerney, prioress general of the Dominican Sisters of San Rafael, noted that “San Domenico is a Catholic school; it also welcomes people of all faiths. It is making an effort to be inclusive of all faiths.”

    San Domenico is a bit behind the times. Loyola of L.A. Law School removed crucifixes decades ago because of complaints from jewish students.

    The local Bishop should police such matters. Obviously, the Bishop is also a PROGRESSIVE … !!!!

    Removal of these statutes is actually the literal opposite of Inclusion!

    What, one wonders, can be the academic teachings of San Domenico School to attract 80 % of their students that are not [other than] Catholic (mentality oriented) students? What are the socio and economic profiles of these students?

    Why do they [any whoever] non-Christians attend SDS? Do SDS graduates significantly excel in life? If so, SDS demonstrates its worthy leadership quality educational merits.

    SDS can be a religiously inclusive school, yet competently attracting diverse students ably operating on christian Catholic quality ideals. Let inspirational quality academic education ideals be “… in the Name of Inclusion”.

    The statutes are somebody’s labor to create, how about ‘Inclusion’ of their artform! The statutes appearance should not be construed as insulting to non-Christians who feel some purpose and value in their academic education at SDS.

    So sad. 2,000 years of focus and loyal interpretation. Suddenly, the definition of wisdom seems to have changed. Go back to St. Peter’s church !!!
