Two Mommies Not OK with the Archdiocese of Denver

I saw this first over Fat Jack's place.  WTF?!?!

It appears that the Archdiocese of Denver has decided that children whose parents are gay or lesbian cannot attend the Sacred Heart of Jesus School.  In part, their statement reads:

". . .what the Church does teach is that sexual intimacy by anyone outside marriage is wrong; that marriage is a sacramental covenant; and that marriage can only occur between a man and a woman. These beliefs are central to a Catholic understanding of human nature, family and happiness, and the organization of society. The Church cannot change these teachings because, in the faith of Catholics, they are the teachings of Jesus Christ."

I wonder if any children of unmarried heterosexual couples are allowed to attend there?  I wonder if the children of anyone who ever had premarital sex and confesses it are kicked out?  Can children of those who have committed adultery attend?  What about children of single adults who have consensual heterosexual sex outside of marriage?  That statement covers a lot of ground.  If they are not expelling children for all of these reasons, then they are, in fact, discriminating against homosexual people.  This would be illegal, even in a private school.
