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.”
