Mission Prep athletic director target of anti-gay vandalism

August 15, 2012

Two acts of vandalism that targeted the gay athletic director of Mission College Preparatory Catholic High School in San Luis Obispo are being investigated as hate crimes. [Tribune]

In April 26, gay athletic director of Mission College Preparatory Catholic High School Bailey Brown discovered someone had slashed her car tires and scratched her car while it was parked outside her Pismo Beach home. A message of hate, “We (heart) r Role Models,” was scrawled on the car.

The cost of the vandalism is estimated at about $3,000.

A month later, officials at Mission Prep discovered school property had been vandalized and comments were left that disparaged the sexual orientation of Brown.

Pismo Beach and San Luis Obispo police departments continue to investigate the alleged hate crimes.

    As I child I was raised Christian. I went to chuch every Sunday and bible study every Wednesday and youth group every Friday. You know what we were taught about Gays and Lesbians? That they are children of God. I highly doubt that Jesus intended for people to take “justice” into their own hands. I myself have homosexual family members, to be honest they are more understanding, more compasionate, and quite frankly more fun to be around then my uptight “christian” relatives. I think it’s very sad to see so much hatred in the name of “God”. Do people really think the will be ushered through the pearly gates straight to the thrown of God where they will receive praise for upholding heterosexual beliefs. For condeming brothers and sisters to damnation based on a book that was written 2000 years ago and has been rewritten more then any other?

    I wish the people who are so filled with hate could see it from the other side. Do you really think Gays and Lesbians woke up one morning and thought it would be fun to be pursecutedfor who they love? I’m sure it’s not easy waking up very morning knowing you have to hide you who are from friend and co workers. They live life with constant struggles and persecution. They are no different then the rest of us. The want to have happy lives with people they love no matter their sexual orientation. Get off you bible beating high horse and think wwjd? I’m pretty sure he would love them no matter what their “sins”.

    As a private, Catholic Christian institution, I thought it might be of benefit to some to provide a reference of the Catholic Church’s official and documented position on homosexuality. A position that is not about to be swayed by the ever fickle and degenerate demands of popular culture.

    No where does it condone the criminal behavior outlined in this new article. It also doesn’t accept the practice of homosexuality as anything other than “intrinsically disordered.” From the Cathechism of the Catholic Church:

    “CCC 2357 Homosexuality refers to relations between men or between women who experience an exclusive or predominant sexual attraction toward persons of the same sex. It has taken a great variety of forms through the centuries and in different cultures. Its psychological genesis remains largely unexplained. Basing itself on Sacred Scripture, which presents homosexual acts as acts of grave depravity, tradition has always declared that “homosexual acts are intrinsically disordered.” They are contrary to the natural law. They close the sexual act to the gift of life. They do not proceed from a genuine affective and sexual complementarity. Under no circumstances can they be approved.

    CCC 2358 The number of men and women who have deep-seated homosexual tendencies is not negligible. This inclination, which is objectively disordered, constitutes for most of them a trial. They must be accepted with respect, compassion, and sensitivity. Every sign of unjust discrimination in their regard should be avoided. These persons are called to fulfill God’s will in their lives and, if they are Christians, to unite to the sacrifice of the Lord’s Cross the difficulties they may encounter from their condition.

    CCC 2359 Homosexual persons are called to chastity. By the virtues of self-mastery that teach them inner freedom, at times by the support of disinterested friendship, by prayer and sacramental grace, they can and should gradually and resolutely approach Christian perfection.”

    Why is it that people equate disagreement with hate? There are always people in any group that justify violence, such as the shooting at the Family Research Council Headquarters.

    I disagree with same-sex marriage, therefor I am homophobic.
    I disagree with Mr. Obama’s policies, therefor I am racist.
    I disagree with abortion, therefor I hate women (including myself)
    I use plastic bags, therefor I hate the environment.
    I want people to come here legally, therefor I hate illegal immigrants.

    I believe we should speak the truth in love.

        Crusader,

        You DO NOT have the authority to ever use the godly ratification term of “amen”, since you’re not a Christian in any sense of the term. This has been proven ad infinitum in this forum!

        Your assumed Christian refutations and statements are from a minion of Satan at best.

          Okay, Jesus and I will give you the benefit of the doubt that you’re a true Christian.

      Stop being such an hateful bigot. Yes, trying to link what you feel is homophobia with the KKK is entertaining (and ironic) but it’s neither accurate nor is it selling.

      I’m curious. If you vandalized vehicles owned by heterosexuals (you could even scrawl “KKK” on them!) would that too be considered a hate crime? Let’s hope so because your hate for others that do not share your views is unmistakable.

        I make this challenge in the full confidence that the cowards that attack others with animus only because of the ‘otherness’ of those they blindside will never reveal themselves willingly.
        They’ll never have to worry about being lynched or having any of their property damaged.

        These pointy-headed confederates are just the small town haters of everyone. They’re more likely to be done in by a relative or by their own hand.

          What “challenge?” You’re simply spewing more hateful venom. You’re agitating for more laws to be broken. Somehow you think that’s OK. You’re not fooling anyone — you’re just as screwed-up as those who perpetrated this crime.

    Jeez, I hope S.L.O. isn’t being infected by the Westboro Baptist Chuch coodies. I, for one, would not welcome any Phelp’s wannabes here. Also, I certainly hope all you “Real(sic)” christians are aware of the fact that former astronaut, physics advanced degree holder and teacher Sally Ride, recently deceased from pancreatic cancer spent the last 27 years of her remarkable life in a “loving, stable,” relationship with another woman? There is a whole bunch of hard science Ph.D.’s out there who will tell you how much inspiration Sally provided them on their chosen path(s). Hearing about the lady at MCP and women like her
    give me more feeling of hope then all the incessant, inane, feckless religious blathering about the opinions and redacted mythology of some Iron Age goat herders in the Levant.

      It’s a private, CATHOLIC CHRISTIAN high school. Deal with that reality rather than going on about Sally Ride, cancer and PhD’s.

      As a Catholic Christian institution, MCP is supposed to be driven by the teachings of God through His Church and not by the current dictates of popular culture.

        Crusader,

        I feel it’s my mission here at CCN to continue to “school” you once again in religious matters. I didn’t expect you to respond to my post directed at your ignorance relating to the majority of Christians do NOT think that Catholics are Christians in any way whatsoever. At times, as in your case, it is better for you to remain silent to save yourself any further embarrassment. I understand.

        MCP is suppose to be driven by God, aka, Hebrew-Christian God, through His church (bible) and not by the current dictates of popular culture? Really? Then, will you be the first to enact the passages aforementioned before relating to the what God proposes for homosexuals? Those entites reside within Leviticus 20:13 and Romans 1:26-27, 32. Absolutely no apologetic spin doctoring is needed for these literal and historical passages. Well?

        You pseudo-christians are so predictable and ungodly that it makes Jesus sick!
