A Jesuit school in Massachusetts has been asked by the local diocesan bishop to take down Black Lives Matter (BLM) and homosexual “pride” rainbow flags displayed outside its building at the risk of losing its Catholic designation.
In an April 3 statement, Bishop Robert McManus of Worcester explained that the two flags, which have been displayed for over a year outside the Nativity School of Worcester, are not compatible with Catholic values and the teaching of the Catholic Church.
“As the Bishop of this diocese, I must teach that it is imperative that a Catholic School use imagery and symbols which are reflective of that school’s values and principles so as to be clear with young people who are being spiritually and morally formed for the future,” the bishop said.
“While our role in a school is not to convert those who are not Catholic, nor is it our role to deny our Catholic identity,” he added.
