Homophobic row at school – Falkirk Herald

A Roman Catholic high school is at the centre of a row over a religious group’s distribution of supposedly homophobic literature.

 

The Scottish Secular Society (SSS) condemned the presence of a leaflet entitled The Church and Same-Sex Attraction at Falkirk’s St Mungo’s High School. St Mungo’s has since removed the leaflet, which was distributed by an organisation called the Catholic Truth Society, but not before it caused a major storm on social media. SSS secretary Charlie Lynch said: “While we are gladdened that prompt action has been taken by St. Mungo’s to remove this material and to try and establish how it came to be present, this is sadly only the latest episode in which unrealistic and outmoded theological ideas about sexualities have been proselytised within Catholic secondary schools in Scotland.” (more….)
