I first learned of this situation via the article immediately below. Several statements from the school can be found on its website via the second and third links:

Catholic School May Kick Out Student Promoting Planned Parenthood Abortion Biz

There's a car that I always see in the parking lot in my parish that has a bumper sticker that says 'If your car has an Obama bumper sticker, you're just telling the world you're stupid'. I rather like that one.

Another, less humorous example of a bumper sticker I saw in a church parking lot said 'I'm pro-choice and I vote' and literally right next to it was a bumper sticker with an image of Our Lady of Guadalupe and some Catholic slogan I can't remember, I thought that was just flat out blasphemous.

Another one I saw, back in 2004, there was a John Kerry for President' bumper sticker, and right next to it was an image of Mary with the words 'Mother of God, pray for us'. I don't know if the juxtaposition was intended as an ironic commentary or not, but I found it hilarious when I saw it.

Dad used to tell the story of a former coworker of his, a very straight-laced, “Mr. Peepers” kind of guy who drove his immaculate 1962 Chevy sedan from the day he bought it new until he died sometime in the 1990’s.

Anyway, one day in the early-to-mid ‘70s, when they became popular, “Robert” pulled up at a red light behind a car bearing a bumper sticker that said “Honk! If you love Jesus.” So, being an unassuming, but Christ-loving fellow, “Robert” did a gentle tap on his horn. The driver of the car with the bumper sticker popped his head out of the window, turned behind him and shouted (along with some definitely un-Christian language I won’t repeat here) “YOU IDIOT! CAN’T YOU SEE THE LIGHT’S STILL RED???”

Some years back on a Sunday morning I remember seeing a car in the parish parking lot with a pro-abortion bumper sticker. I don't know who owned the car. All I could think of was: "That person needs prayers." Which I gladly obliged.

I think ive gotten a little hyper sensitive to the word "choice" . . . I was enraged once when I saw a bumper sticker at our parish that said CHOICE in big caps . . . . I walked closer and the whole bumper sticker said "Parents have a CHOICE on how their kids are educated" (pro homeschool sticker I suppose)

:brick: I got all worked up for nothing

They often don't cite sources, often exaggerate, and give off a sedevacantist vibe.

Dislike for the Holy Father is not sedevacantist.

True. We are bound to respect the office - yet, not necessarily the person of the pope.

Yet, there are things the Holy Father states "off the cuff" that tempts my sense of Charity. At times, I wonder if the Holy Spirit is testing my humility...

Never pray for patience or humility. The Lord may take you up on the challenge :)

My Mom, God rest her soul often said if I prayed for humility I might die of shock.

Oh, goody, goody!!!

So can I put KKK emblems all over my laptop as an expression of my beliefs and have YOU respect that???

Good thing this story is all over the interwebs then and the school's capitulation to the culture of death is laid bare for all to see.

That's been my impression as well. In another thread I asked if there was a site that provided critiques of Catholic web sites. Meanwhile, the input of others is most appreciated.
