A California Catholic Daily reader sent an Oct. 25 email reporting that Mitty High School in San Jose is planning on putting on Head over Heels, based on the 16th Century play Arcadia.
According to New York Magazine, “It’s got Broadway sparkle to it, it depends almost entirely on its ensemble to generate its goofy, big-hearted brand of magic.” Buzzfeed admits, “And then things take a turn for the queer.”
The Cal Catholic emailer was not amused. He/she wrote to Father Urcia at the school and to the San Jose Diocese, including Bishop Cantu. The Mitty High appointment of the school principal was covered last November in Cal Catholic
Parents should not allow their underage minor children to participate in this indoctrination exercise. Kids must learn to reject trash being presented to them as happy flash, and the parents must lead them. Another example of why home schooling is on the rise.
Agree on the home schooling.
Today I read of an incident where middle school children were taken on a “field trip” to a LGBT bar/restaraunt. Parents only found out about it after the teacher “proudly” published the info with pictures on her FB page.
I dont have grandchildren and the way things look with my sons likely won’t. Sometimes I think that is a good thing too,
Take your transphobia somewhere else
Just one thing after another. Things are in complete disarray at Mitty. The bishop needs to do something about it. Unfortunately, his track record is not good.
Aren’t these called “Drag Shows”?
This type of thing is just a superficial indicator of deeper, serious disorder at places like Mitty. Men that would seriously scandalize most any Christian observers facilitate this type of anti-social deconstructionalism all the time. Good thing for them authorities need search warrants to seize computers and cell phones.
None of this type of thing happens in isolation, and if there are not young men being victimized in that community, I’ll eat my hat. What will it take for these people in charge to learn?
Mitty was a fake Catholic school when I left it about twenty years ago. Now it’s hardly a school. It’s a leftist indoctrination camp.
I will only mention that when my boys got to jr high age we looked at local Catholic schools. My wife and I both had contacts with parents with children at these schools. Our impression was that the schools were not Catholic. This was ~15 years ago. We ended up sending both of them to a Christian school that was more Catholic than the local. 6 years really never had any anti Catholic teachings from the school. The school was aware we were Catholics and while no catechism, it was a socially and physically safe. Expensive yes, But the local public schools were even worse This was a time when boys had to be medicated or they got kicked out for being boys. Crazy time to be told after one week in kindergarten that your kid is ADD/ADHD borderline aspergers by a teacher with 2 years of experience under her belt.
Cali schools are just terrible If we had our kids now, we’d homeschool or leave Cali.
Tuff times for parents in Cali now. The state is your enemy.
Is anyone surprised? This is what happens when the Mitty board of trustees unanimously recommends a pro-abortion, pro-same-sex-marriage, non-Catholic candidate to be the president of the school, and the bishop hires her without doing his due diligence. All for the sake of “diversity” and being able to say Mitty isn’t a racist school because look at our president’s skin color.
By this time all the Catholics have left Mitty anyway. Truly, there are no Catholics left there. The school is a total farce.
Your are right, and it has nothing to do with racism. I once had a black lady supervisor at one of my jobs, and I respected her because she had high moral values and tried to keep the young people out of trouble. She and I got along just fine.
Another “Catholic” school that isn’t. Homeschooling is the only option left for many Catholic families.
If there is a silver lining, it is that President Latanya is not a Catholic, she’s a self described “Yogi.” From a hagiography of St. Latanya from the school’s newspaper: “Mrs. Hilton maintains specific habits aimed at alleviating the pressures of her role: “Sometimes you feel very lonely. You know? I do a lot of praying. I do—I pray a lot. I also have counsel. I keep a close group around me and have different profiles of people. So I’ve got the pragmatists: Man, I’ve got my girlfriends that will give it to me straight. I also have my mom who’s suspicious and worries about everything.” Mrs. Hilton adds, “I’m also a Yogi, I do yoga every day. And I find that it just helps me stay chill when I need to be. I have my yoga mat in my office. I close my door and just roll it out, even if I can just get a five or ten minute flow.””
We don’t need to imagine an actual pro-abortion, pagan running a Catholic high school. It’s happening in the Diocese of San Jose.
Bishop Oscar’s millstone will be large. He’s a little man in stature and in character, so it will definitely not need to be that large.
I think she was a terrible choice. That said, where did you find her describing herself as a “Yogi” or something other than Catholic?
Curious, the interview is in the linked article. You have to click on the part of the image that says “Mitty President.” The image will bring up different articles about her life, including her Ambassadors Circle tantric organismic meditation days.
Tantric? Sheesh. Well, that explains much.
OK, I’ll try looking again. Thanks.
Click the link Tabitha gave, then click the Mitty part of the timeline.
Very interesting and revealing that in that story these words are never used once: Catholic, God, Jesus, faith, church.
So in an article in a Catholic school newspaper about the new president of the school who attended that school and also worked at Santa Clara University, an article that is about her influences and experiences and formative convictions, nowhere in the account of those experiences, influences and convictions is there any mention of Catholic faith, God, Jesus or the church.
So a Catholic high school has a president for whom Catholic faith, God, Jesus and the church are not even on the radar as peripheral concerns, much less at the center of what she sees her role and the school as being about.
That, ladies and gentlemen, tells you all you need to know about phony Catholic schools and phony Mitty.
When I was growing up, when Latanya attended the school, it was widely known as Sh***y Mitty. It still is.
And Bishop Cantu gave his “full blessing and support” to her appointment, really makes you wonder… Compromised? Or just incredibly negligence and incompetent? SMH
Question: to whom is Mrs. Hilton married? I assume it is Latanya that is being called “Mrs. Hilton”. Some writers do like to twist things now to confuse people. I have noticed that in one news article now, Ex President Bill Clinton is now called Hilary Clinton’s “partner” instead of her husband, and I think Hilary and Bill are still married.
“My what a tangled web we weave when first we practice to deceive”.
Most Catholic schools aren’t even Roman Catholic anymore that ceased years ago, like public schools they are simply left-wing communist indoctrination schools taught to hate the family, hate themselves especially if you’re white, hate the military, hate the police, and hate the United States of America. Like the Roman Empire the United States of America will fall by its own hand not an outsider. Just today the Biden administration said it wants to pay illegal aliens $450,000 each for compensation for being separated from their families during the Trump administration. So once again American born and bred get absolutely nothing and illegal aliens get free healthcare, free housing, free education, and now $450,000 each, this country doesn’t have much time left it will be in engulfed a by Civil War which in essence has already began.
Mitty doesn’t care what you think. The teachers don’t care. The bishop doesn’t care. The parents don’t care. The students don’t care. Almost all of them fully support this planned production and they also support the agenda of the Alphabet People. That’s why they’re putting on this show. They want to show how boldly courageous they are in taking a stand for luv and acceptance against Medieval ways of thinking and against biological truth. They aren’t confined to objective reality, you see: they have broken down walls and barriers to create their own reality in which everything is accepted, celebrated and promoted except Catholic faith. And they think they are superior because of their enlightened views. They look with disgust on us poor benighted people who believe what all human beings since the dawn of time believed about human nature until the year 2011.
Face it: the wicked prosper. God doesn’t care about his Catholic schools. And if God and the bishop and the people at the school don’t care, then why should we?
Any musical that attempts to recycle old pop music into a stage show is automatically a terrible production. The Go Go’s? 80s music turned into a stage show? it was dumb with Mama Mia using Abba music from the 70s. Just let the pop music be what it was. Don’t try to turn it into something it was never meant to be. It doesn’t work.
Everyone: read this article and you’ll understand why the Diocese of San Jose and why the diocesan high school are the way that they are:
tldr: dissent encouraged, fostered and even spoken by Bishop McGrath when he was the local ordinary.
I sincerely hope for the next generation. Catholicism is not a weapon to bludgeon others who do not think like us. It’s a cloak of compassion, love and understanding. It’s belief in God and the lessons taught to us through the life of Jeses. Let’s open our minds and our hearts-and not criticize. Catholicism equals compassion for all hiumans.
This is an extremely slanted and poor explanation of what is occurring at the school. It works to undermine the progress and
