In Brighton, New York the president of McQuaid Jesuit High School told parents Wednesday through a letter it will allow a gay couple to attend this year’s Junior Prom.
The school’s president, Fr. Edward Salmon, wrote, “I have made the decision that, if our two brothers who have asked to attend the Junior Ball together wish to do so, they will be welcomed.” He added, “We understand that having a homosexual orientation brings with it enough anxiety, pain and issues related to self-acceptance without society bringing additional prejudicial treatment.”

That’s good to hear, but sad that it is considered newsworthy.
