Kicked out

To the Editor:

I couldn’t believe what I was reading June 3, when I read your article on the first page of your newspaper that the Cub Scout/ Boy Scout Troop in Crystal Lake had to look for a new meeting place.

The St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Catholic Church was kicking them out. The decision comes after the Boy Scouts lifted their ban on openly gay Scouts.

I thought the church was supposed to teach love and acceptance (love thy neighbor). It’s no wonder the Catholic churches are losing parishioners.

And, yes, I am Catholic and went to Catholic grade school and high school.
