A Michigan all-girls Catholic high school has cancelled a speech by an author because they deemed the content of his speech to be inappropriate for their students. Finally, we’ve found Catholic school administrators who take seriously their mission to teach and uphold the Church’s teachings… Oh, wait, it’s not what you think. The speaker, Daniel J. Flynn, was sponsored by the conservative Young America’s Foundation and he had planned to talk about, among other things, the Nazi and eugenicist origins of the beliefs of Margaret Sanger, founder of Planned Parenthood.
Flynn’s upcoming speech was to be drawn from his 2005 book, “Intellectual Morons: How Ideology Makes Smart People Fall for Stupid Ideas,” and highlighted controversial ideas that influenced 20th century birth control activist Margaret Sanger as she founded what is now Planned Parenthood.
Stickley said the speech had been approved in advance by administrators but was canceled Friday because the material was deemed inappropriate for students at the all-girls Catholic school.
The principal claimed that the speech was canceled because a school official failed to follow school policy.
So what’s inappropriate for Catholic high school girls to hear is the truth about Planned Parenthood. I wonder what else they’re teaching these girls.
