Using material from the Catholic Medical Association and the prestigious if conservative Linacre Center in Great Britain, Sister Laurel talked about the causes of later homosexuality saying that a distant or absent father can cause a boy to seek masculine affirmation in a sexual attraction to other males.
This theory is now rejected by the psychological establishment but still held by a stalwart yet rump group of psychologists like Rick Fitzgibbons and Joseph Nicolosi.
And this is where the real story of the nun’s lecture comes to light. She was collateral damage for those who wanted the scalp of Father Kauth and even more want to stem encroaching orthodoxy from this otherwise Catholic-light enclave.
The larger story is about how the dissenting Church is dying in Charlotte, North Carolina and this is perhaps its dying gasps.
When Father asked for a talk, Sister thought he meant that talk.
She went to him twice to ask, “Are you sure you want that talk?
On Twitter, Facebook and other social media this theory became something like “I’m gay because my dad was mean” or “I’m gay because I have a single mom” and “my mom’s divorce made me gay.” The kids also fastened onto the Sister’s assertion that gays have an inordinate number of sex partners. Some say she put lifetime gay sex partners at 500-1,000. Either time period with that number is shocking but survey data tends to back her up on this.
In fact, men who have sex with men are fairly open about the rather open relationships they have, even among the “married.” Sex columnist Dan Savage even coined a term for it.
Shelley Earnhardt, a divorced mother of a Charlotte Catholic student, sent out an email asking people to write to the Pope, the Apostolic Nuncio to the United States and the US Conference of Catholic Bishops.
So quickly did the poison build up in the school—what with teachers fanning the flames, parents in irregular relationships stoking the fire, dissenting nuns and perhaps a few grey-haired priests lending a hand, and all the largely unformed students wanting to be “fair” and “loving” and “non-judgmental”—the diocese decided to have an all-parents meeting to let off some steam.
The meeting started with general statements by the diocesan representatives and then a prepared apology from Father Kauth. According to sources close to the situation, when Kauth asked for the talk he heard previously that talk did not have the homosexual part in it.
” Father twice said yes, but they were talking about two different lectures.
Sister knew in her bones the talk with the gay stuff would not fly in an all-school assembly. He did not back away from the material, only from the venue and he blamed himself.
When I first read his statement, it seemed to me he was throwing Sister to the wolves. Sister had been to the school last fall and spoken to smaller groups segregated by sex and in the company of parents.
