In other Covington Catholic news, the school’s openly gay valedictorian was barred from speaking at graduation last spring because his speech was “inconsistent with the teaching of the Catholic Church.” The speech reportedly contained such statements as, “Love thy neighbor, no matter whom he loves,” and, “Nobody should molest children.”
