My dad would have a difference of opinion.

7. If you're talking about the students that may not be true

Catholic schools are less and less filled with Catholic students. I've seen numbers around 50%
It's part of the reason why so many Catholics began opposing free tuition forty years ago -- because they were providing free tuition to people who were not participating members of the parish or church

8. But the school's website claims it is teaching values

https://www.covcath.org/about


About CCH
Covington Catholic High School is a Blue Ribbon of Excellence award winning college preparatory high school within the Diocese of Covington. It is an all-male school of 592 whose mission is to embrace the Gospel message of Jesus Christ in order to educate students spiritually, academically, physically and socially.

Our school cultivates:

A Foundation of Brotherhood: Tradition. Lifelong Bonds.
A Foundation of Faith: Catholic Values. Purpose.
A Foundation of Excellence: Merit. Distinction.
A Foundation of Innovation: Critical Thinking. Creativity.
A Foundation of Service: Impact. Community.
A Foundation of Spirit: Colonel Pride. Champions.
A Foundation of Teamwork: Collaboration. Victory.


It appears to be failing in its mission.

BTW it you look at the pictures on its website the student body might be referred to as "pale faces". I imagine this is one of those private schools whose real mission is to avoid the results of Brown v the Board.

13. They are Catholic.

Don't claim they are not when they represent a Catholic High School accredited by a diocese. Look, I'm a Church-going Catholic myself - a sacristan at my church, even, but to claim these are not Catholics because they behave like jerks is wrong. It's how we got (and get!) the sex abuse scandals in our Church, because we distance ourselves from the perpetrators and think we are better than that. Only when we acknowledge that this happens in our midst because of our own behavior will we be able to eradicate it.

5. I love this thread:

text:
Imagine sending the students at your school to D.C. on a field trip to protest abortion rights, and you wind up making national news because your students surround, mock, and harass a Native American elder on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial.

10. It's fine to point out racism over here

but Brexit is ALL about racism over there and they don't give a flying fig who knows it. See that last vote against the Brexit deal.
