    The EEOC does seem wrong on this matter. John, I agree, the country is now moving left at the same rate that it went right under Bush.

    Does the state really understand the crisis that will occur if all private schools close?This nation is going left by the minute!

    They may not have a choice if the government pushes their policies on a Catholic Insitution.

    The only way you may have a chance is to have everyone at the College contact their representatives.

    If the government intervenes against Catholic principles, do not close the school: continue regardless and let all Catholics, including parents and students, demonstrate their refusal to compromise their Faith and kneel before the Moloch of modern secular progressive tyranny.

    Dr. Thierfelder is taking the morally correct course. I pray God will guide him. His position is difficult, and closing down the school may seem drastic. But yes, if it comes down to it it is better to close a school or a hospital or any other facility the Church owns than to violate Church teaching on this fundamental issue. It is well past the time our bishops recognized that fact.

    Close the school if the government intervenes against your Catholic principles.
