This Is All Kinds Of Wrong of the Day: Dominic Sheahan-Stahl, a third-generation graduate of Sacred Heart Academy in Michigan, was scheduled to give the keynote at his brother’s upcoming high school commencement. But when the school found out he is gay — he’s been out for 14 years, and recently posted his engagement pictures on Facebook — it canceled his speech. Sacred Heart officials told him that if he hadn’t overshared on Facebook, there wouldn’t have been a problem.
Dominic, resolute, took to YouTube this week, promising in a video to share his speech on Facebook, if it comes to that. “I’m not trying to post all the blame on Sacred Heart Academy,” Dominic says. “They just picked the wrong person to do this to. Discrimination is wrong, and you cannot do this.”
The crux of the debacle? “There is not one inkling of the word gay” in his speech.
*And the hits keep on coming
Obviously I have a strong opinion as far as gay rights are concerned. No different than the previous post concerning racism, I believe that discrimination against gays is the exact same thing.
So all I’ll say, because I read a comment about it, is that if the school as a religious institution has the right to do this because this individuals “way of life” is against their beliefs. Then those same institution have the right to deny students because of their race, and/or gender, because they disagree with that “way of life.” And I’m sorry, but that’s bullshit.
