What's Brewing: 5/13/10

1. An 8-year-old won’t be entering third grade at St. Paul Elementary School in Massachusetts, after the Catholic school withdrew its acceptance of the boy because he has two lesbian moms, The Associated Press reports. It’s at least the second time in recent months that a Catholic school in the U.S. has rejected a student based on gay parents. “I’m accustomed to discrimination, I suppose, at my age and my experience as a gay woman,” the mother said. “But I didn’t expect it against my child.” In somewhat related news, 81 percent of respondents in Dallas Voice’s weekly online poll say private businesses shouldn’t be allowed to discriminate against LGBT people. That’s what I’m talkin’ about!

2.George “Rentboy” Rekers tells Christianity Today that he has confessed to both the Lord and his family for his sins. However, in what would appear to be a minor oversight, his confession didn’t include depraved, adulterous sex with a 20-year-old male prostitute or spending his entire life as a closeted, anti-gay hypocrite. “I confessed to the Lord and to my family that I was unwise and wrong to hire this travel assistant after knowing him only one month before the trip and not knowing whether he was more than a person raised in a Christian home,” Rekers said. “I also confessed to the Lord and to my family the sin of thereby putting myself into a vulnerable situation where I tragically became subject to false allegations.”

3. Congressman Steve King, R-Iowa, says the Employment Non-Discrimination Act would be unnecessary if gays would simply stop wearing “their sexuality on their sleeve” at work. ‘Nuff said.
