School that dismissed a lesbian counselor introduces a new LGBT program


A high school in Indianapolis, Indiana that fired a guidance counselor after finding out that she was in a same-sex marriage, because the school is religious (Catholic), it disapproves same-sex marriages and doubts whether the counselor could serve as a good role model for children if she does not follow catholic teachings in her everyday life, even though lesbianism is not disapproved or even mentioned in the Bible. Now the school announces in their weekly newsletter that they would be implementing a new program aimed at gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender students. The new program, titled Encourage, is launched to promote “a positive environment and safe space for students who experience same-sex attractions and those questioning their sexual identity.” A student at the school, Erin Rooney, praised the step, saying it was “important” that people from the LGBT+ community feel accepted in the school “I was a little concerned at first that it was going to be a form of conversion therapy but again I think if it is managed correctly that it should be OK,” she told Fox49.
