Catholic Means “Universal”

Except in Broomfield, Colorado:

It happened Tuesday in a classroom at Holy Family High School, the Catholic school that sits at the corner of 144th Avenue and Sheridan Boulevard in Broomfield.

The classroom discussion started with the question: Why do students need to learn Spanish?

According to the Archdiocese of Denver, the conversation soon became about immigration and it turned ugly.

“It became a heated discussion and some rhetoric was used that was inappropriate for the classroom,” said Jeanette DeMelo, spokesperson for the Archdiocese of Denver.

DeMelo confirms that students started a chant of “white power” and some said that all Mexicans should go back to Mexico.

WWJD? I’m pretty sure it wouldn’t include race baiting.

    Hahahahahaha. Jeanette DeMelo and I went to to the same university. Graduated the same year and with the same major and we both lived in Rome at the same time. Poor girl. She a very bright woman. She could out debate both you and I. We were pretty good friends. Too bad she has to deal with this sort of crap now.

    And yes. Illegal immigrants from Mexico or any other country should be returned to their country of origin.
