Catholic School Rejection

A Catholic parish school in Praire Village, Kansas, opted not to enroll a same-sex couple's child in kindergarten. We examine the reasoning behind the decision made by the Archdiocese of Kansas City in Kansas and the split among Catholics on the issue.

  • Tom Roberts, executive editor, National Catholic Reporter
  • Karen, attended St. Ann school, now in a same-sex relationship with a child in a church school within the Archdiocese of Kansas City in Kansas
  • Colleen Simon, engagement coordinator for St. Andrew Episcopal Church. In 2014 was fired from a KCMO Catholic food pantry for her same-sex marriage.
