"Where there is discord, may we bring harmony. Where there is error, may we bring truth. Where there is doubt, may we bring faith. And where there is despair, may we bring hope." -- St. Francis of Assisi
Many people who saw the WKYC interview have commented that the saddest part of it was when Brian mentioned that he was not allowed to say goodbye to his students. Today he did. The band parents organized an event to thank Brian for everything he did for music program. Hopefully, this will bring some closure for everyone who was affected. What a foolish school, if you ask me: they fired a much loved, gifted educator who actually has been more Jesus-like-- throughout this sorry episode-- than anyone else at that School. Even the National Catholic Reporter is saying that these recent firings are nothing but pure hypocrisy. Shame on you, St. Mary. If you are a student at St. Mary or any other Catholic school for that matter, you are not voiceless! Join the Keepmrz2013 movement on Facebook--Catholic students like you-- and change the Church: Catholic schools will think twice before firing a gay teacher unless, of course, they are asking for bad press. This is my last post. God bless you all.
