Sorry for not being clear. I'm not saying that i know that it's something passed along genetically. I have no idea. I'm just responding to the hypothetical question and saying that both evolution and genetic homosexuality can be true at the same time. While I believe you are correct (they haven't found the gay genetics), studies suggest that there is a genetic component.

Sure, that's always a valid point. But once you start picking winners and losers by only issuing licenses and status to one group, what's the compelling state interest in excluding the other?

Prostitution, murder, gambling, age of consent ... which of those are not morality laws? Ima thinkin ... all laws are based in morality. Freedoms exist within a social, then religious, then legal (the order may be wrong, and the level of powers that enforce them) ... code of ethics and morality.

Thousands of years of history, with rules developed to make a society function better ... but you have it figured out they were wrong. "zero bearing on my life as I'm neither gay nor a polygamist." yeah right ... giving entitlements to any "marriages" you don't perceive as influencing your life should be allowed. You know the original colonies demanded their residents attend church…

Morality cannot be legislated. Period. When you start making morality laws, then freedom doesn't exist any more. While some might laugh at using the example, look at the movie DEMOLITION MAN. One of the running gags in that movie is when someone says a "bad word", Big-Brother-Is-Always-Listening computer buzzes and issues a fine for a "violation of the verbal moralities code". If that's…

Blessed Sacrament Catholic School faculty members to present at 2014 Missouri Leader in Me Symposium

1 year, 4 months ago by Bob Gough

School will be closed Tuesday and Wednesday while teachers participate

 

 

Blessed Sacrament Catholic School will be closed Tuesday, February 25 and Wednesday, February 26, 2014. Faculty members will attend the 2014 Missouri Leader in Me Symposium in St. Charles, Mo.  Blessed Sacrament received the coveted recognition of becoming a Lighthouse school in December 2012 by Franklin Covey, Inc.  The Lighthouse status is given to schools who meet strict requirements regarding the incorporation of the Eight Habits of Highly Effective People.

 

The staff of Blessed Sacrament was asked to not only attend the 2014 Missouri Leader in Me Symposium, but also to present at it.  Chris Reichert, principal of Blessed Sacrament, states, “We were truly honored to be asked to present at the Symposium.  This will be a great opportunity for our staff to share their experience and learn from other schools who are involved in creating leaders within their school.”

 

The entire staff will attend the two day symposium and several of the staff members will be presenting at it.  Their session is titled “Covey + Christ = Catholic Lighthouse Leaders.” The purpose of their session is to share methods, ideas, and lessons that showcase the entwinement of Catholic identity with the Covey habits.  They will also share information on how to incorporate the habits into the school environment, mission statement, language and more while maintaining and supporting their Catholic identity.

 

The families of Blessed Sacrament have been very supportive of this opportunity as well.  “We know it is an inconvenience for the parents to have their children off school for two days in the middle of the week, but our families also recognize what an honor this is,” states Reichert. Blessed Sacrament students will make up the two days later in the year.  The teachers were scheduled to have an institute day on March 17, but students will now attend school on that day.  Blessed Sacrament will also shorten their Easter vacation by one day so that students can make up the second day on April 17.
