Michael Pakulak: Obscene

The columnist/essayist Michael Pakulak lives in a closet of fear, in which his latest writings shows how deep and dark his closet of homophobia really is. This is why children whose parents are LGBTQ should not be allowed into Catholic schools:

It was inevitable that either the teacher, or some parent, would deal with the two men in such a way as implicitly to teach my son, or other children in the class, that there is nothing wrong with same-sex relationships. But this is scandal: that is, leading a “little one” astray in some serious matter by the example you set.

The second reason is that parents are rightly given access to a child’s classroom, and yet I could not trust the designs of the same-sex couple. A mother or father may volunteer to read to the class or chaperone for a class trip. If the homosexual parent does so, what guarantee would I have that he would not be an advocate for his lifestyle, implicitly if not explicitly?

The third reason is that it seemed a real danger that the boy being raised by the same-sex couple would bring to school something obscene or pornographic, or refer to such things in conversation, as they go along with the same-sex lifestyle, which–as not being related to procreation– is inherently eroticized and pornographic.


IT is ecause of such ignorance that I write this blog: to counter this prejudice and is against those of us who are created by God and happen to be gay, lesbian, bisexual, or transgender, intersex, queer expressing, or questioning.

I will come back with a response in the coming week.
