Bishop Bans "Pride" Celebrations in Catholic Schools --UK

The Bishop of Nottingham, Monsignor Patrick McKinney, issued a 40-page document entitled "Precious in My Sight" (below) in May, banning Catholic schools in his diocese from promoting homosexual propaganda ("gay pride").

The new guidelines also crack down on the promotion of gender ideology. Teachers are told not to celebrate homosexual sins in June because "we cannot celebrate lifestyles that are incompatible with Church teaching".

Monsignor McKinney explains that "approving only part of could be seen as dishonest and lead to confusion. We must instead seek to articulate those values and principles with which we can agree and affirm Catholic teaching in a different, distinct and pastorally positive way".

The policy also prohibits children who suffer from gender insecurity from using a self-chosen pronoun, name, uniform, access to changing rooms, showers and toilets.
