The Church Welcomes Everyone… Well, Not You

This story was all over Fox News this morning… Here’s the version from Saturday’s Minneapolis Star Tribune:

Standing more than six feet tall and weighing more than 225 pounds, 13-year-old Adam Race cuts an imposing figure for his age.  Adam is also severely autistic, and his meltdowns during mass at the Catholic church in Bertha, Minn., have prompted a public battle between the parish priest and Adam’s parents.

You can read the rest of the article here

The parish priest has told Adam’s family that he is too disruptive, and has filed a restraining order to keep the family away from church.  The family was cited by police for ignoring the restraining order on Mother’s Day.

So much for the church being a place of welcome and acceptance for all people, regardless of their shortcomings or limitations.

God forgive us.
