Lesbian Couple Barred from Attending Catholic School Prom… So They Throw Their Own Version


It’s hard to understand why a school would bar a same-sex couple from attending prom… maybe because dancing leads to slow dancing and slow dancing leads to not procreating and that goes against all things good and holy.

But that’s what Lexington Catholic High School in Kentucky did to senior Hope Decker and her date, sophomore Tiffany Wright:

In an email Sunday, Lexington Catholic president Steve Angelucci said, “As a Catholic high school, we uphold every teaching of the Catholic Church. The policies and procedures of our school reflect those teachings.”

When the couple tried to enter the school’s gymnasium, where the prom was held, they were turned away…

But the students — always smarter than the administrators at these schools — got the last laugh:

Armed with several car stereos and a group of supportive friends, the teens hosted their own prom in the school parking lot, complete with a table stacked with snacks. After the night’s final song under the stars, 108 students signed a letter to the administration criticizing its decision to turn the girls away.

“We had a wonderful night, and we were surrounded by true friends,” Wright said. “I’ll remember it for the rest of my life.”

    To Willa, Micheal, and Maureen,
    First of all, unless you are one of “the gays” you probably never have had to deal with discrimination that this couple dealt with that night. Also, the “gay mafia” doesn’t strike again. They just want equality. What if we held a Christian prom hm? and banned all the Catholics from attending? Then you might get a inkling of what this couple was facing. A schools first priority is to protect its students. I’m ashamed of the people on this website. Your religion does not excuse your bigoted ways.

  2. Willa says:

    I am so sick of these same sex couples ruining proms every year for their own 15 min. If you don’t like the rules, go to another school. Shame on the kids who partied in the parking lot…shame!

      replace this with black couples and maybe you’ll start to understand the shame in what you’re saying…
      are you a segregationist? ???

  3. Michael says:

    The gay mafia strikes again. If these girls object to Catholic Church Teaching, why don’t they go to public school where relativism is the norm. They can push the envelope as much as they want, but thanks be to God that Lexington Catholic stuck to their guns.

  4. Maureen says:

    It is nice to know, Mr. Angelucci, that someone is upholding the teachings of the Chuch even when they are not “convenient”. Thank you

    • Willa says:

      Thanks Maureen, you are so right! The MEDIA and the gays never consider the rights of others, what a selfish lot. If we don’t agree with your lifestyle it is our right…where were the parents in all of this…hiding in a closet!
