Student Sues Catholic School for $1 Million After Rejecting Same-Sex Homecoming Date

"I hope they don’t do this to anyone else in the future"

The assault on religious freedom by America's LGBT bullies continues in Memphis, Tennessee, where an all-boys Catholic school is being sued for $1 million by a former student because they wouldn't allow him to bring a same-sex date to the homecoming dance last year. 

Filed in September, the suit on behalf of Lance Sanderson claims Christian Brothers High School (CBHS) caused this LGBT snowflake to "suffer severe injuries and damages which include, but are not limited to disability, past and future emotional distress, past and future medical expenses, and personal care services."

Though CBHS took a major hit in the national spotlight last year when Sanderson became an SJW media sensation, the school ultimately stuck to its Catholic principles by refusing Sanderson his request for a same-sex homecoming date. 

The Catechism of the Catholic Church states that "under no circumstances" can homosexuality be approved, and for the school to allow Sanderson a same-sex homecoming date would be a violation of that teaching, which CBHS publicly defended. 

In a school-wide announcement, CBHS officials stated that the school "adheres to the Catholic and LaSallian traditions" and that "boys from other schools may not attend" the dance. 

For unknown reasons, Sanderson was eventually suspended from CBHS, finishing out his senior year courses at home, resulting in his acceptance at DePaul University where he is now a freshman. He openly states the lawsuit has less to do with recompense for alleged injustice on his behalf and more with clubbing Catholic schools into acquiescing their beliefs. 

"I hope they don’t do this to anyone else in the future and that other schools that try to abide by similar philosophies don’t do this to their students. I really don’t want anyone else to go through what I went through this year," he told reporters.

Sanderson says this as he attends DePaul University, the same one that banned conservative activists Milo Yiannopoulos and Ben Shapiro from speaking to students, lest they should shatter their snowflake sensitivities. 

"Tolerance for thee, but not for me," says the leftist.
