One of my pet peeves. It should be "bated" breath--as in "abated." Unless you've eaten something in an effort to attract MacGuiver with the resulting aroma...

I don't doubt that this is true, but I'd appreciate a link to evidence if you can provide it.

Right you are. However, I'll leave the original post as is, because the misspelling does make it almost a pun.

I'm just being an ass, but it was at least a bit of fun.

Hey we sent our kids to a Catholic school and they had the audacity to present Catholic moral teaching!
Love the picture. Bigots protesting bigotry.

Yikes. Okay, thanks for this; I'd never heard about it.

I played with the Catholic Schools All City Band for years, and many of my best friends are/were Catholics (many of them have given up on their faith since learning to think for themselves), and I'd heard some pretty horrible things about the Catholic school system, but I'd never heard about this.

I'd love to see some kid at one of those protests walking up to the media and telling them "I didn't want to come here... our teachers made us do this." Imagine the headlines..

Of course, tarnishing the reputation of the Catholic Church has become rather like shooting fish in a barrel these days, so it's probably not worth the effort anymore.
