Here's all you ever need to know about why parents who are in the truth - don't want their Catholic community undertaking sexual projects in CCD:
Brother Kenneth M. Hoagland had heard all the stories about prom-night debauchery at his Long Island high school: Students putting down $10,000 to rent a party house in the Hamptons. Pre-prom cocktail parties followed by a trip to the dance in a liquor-loaded limo. Fathers chartering a boat for their children's late-night ``booze cruise.''
Our Bishops and priests don't want to look out the windows to find out what's going on in the world.
Before we go applauding the brother - - check out this statement:
``It is not primarily the sex/booze/drugs that surround this event, as problematic as they might be; it is rather the flaunting of affluence, assuming exaggerated expenses, a pursuit of vanity for vanity's sake - in a word, financial decadence,''
It was okay if they get drunk and do drugs and have sex - but by gum when they buy a 700 dress for the evening - he's had it.
``Each year it gets worse - becomes more exaggerated, more expensive, more emotionally traumatic,'' he added. ``We are withdrawing from the battle and allowing the parents full responsibility. (Kellenberg) is willing to sponsor a prom, but not an orgy.''
He'd be drawn and quarted in Duxbury.
Check out this floozy:
``This is my fourth child to go through Kellenberg and I don't think they have a right to judge what goes on after the prom,'' he said. ``They put everybody in the category of drinkers and drug addicts. I don't believe that's the right thing to do.''
The Bishop is going to take responsiblity for these people in our communities talking about touching?
