Idiot Catholic school boots cancer survivor because she fell behind in class

BATTLE CREEK, Mich. (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - A young girl who has just finished fighting the biggest fight of her life has been dealt another blow.

In August 2012, Rose McGrath, of Battle Creek, was diagnosed with leukemia.
But last week, her family received a letter in the mail that would turn her world upside down.

The letter addressed concerns regarding Rose's attendance and academic performance, and stated that Rose had been dismissed from St. Joseph Middle School.

"With Both Hands" blogger Pat Hickey passed this story along, along with an appropriate kiss-my-ass scolding to the priest who committed this un-Catholic act. Pat Hickey scores again.

    The cold and heartless Catholic church, trying to lower the standards of Christianity.

    If Catholic priests aren't having sex with innocent children, they'll find some way to punish them. I'll bet they kept the parent's tuition money, though.

    Catholics, doing What SmartSatan Would Do......

    Smearing with a broad brush? It's easier than thinking, isn't it?

    Neil, I try not write comments following a couple of nasal passages of Testors. That simple rule has served me well . . .in most cases.
