The story of the Boston Archdiocese locking out the students at Our Lady of the Presentation in Brighton has made it to the first page of the NY Times’s "National Report." And kudos to Mayor Menino, who really went out of his way to make the kids’ graduation a special day – Faneuil Hall and everything (Bill Galvin and Mike Moran were also involved – kudos to them too). An election year stunt? Who cares. It was a nice thing to do.
Money quote from 10-year-old Earl Smith, on the Archdiocese’s actions:
"Jesus taught the exact opposite of what they’re doing."
