A Catholic High School in Florida received $1.35 million in funding from a couple, but now the couple wants their money back after they learned how woke the school is.

From The Daily Wire: 

A couple who bequeathed $1.35 million to a Tampa, Florida, Catholic high school wants their money back, stating in a lawsuit that the school was inculcating “woke culture” where “gender identity, human sexuality and pregnancy termination among other hot button issues” were prioritized.

In 2017, Anthony and Barbara Scarpo, who have a daughter who graduated from Academy of the Holy Names and another who has transferred to a different high school, pledged $1.35 million to the school at a fundraising gala. The money was intended to support the school’s master plan and for scholarships for disadvantaged students, the Tampa Bay Times reported, adding, “They were named chairs of the academy’s fundraising campaign and the school renamed its auditorium the ‘Scarpo Family Theatre.’”

But now the Scarpos want their pledge to be rescinded; the lawsuit, which also asks that the tuition the Scarpos paid be redirected to Catholic charities of their choice, states that white students are encouraged to feel guilty about their color and their family’s wealth.

“It also asks that the academy be stopped from advertising itself as a Catholic institution and for the Florida Catholic Conference to stop accrediting the school,” the Tampa Bay Times noted.

America is waking up to the fact that Critical Race Theory and Woke-ism have totally infested many of America’s key institutions. Even private schools like the one in this story are riddled with the dangerous philisophy, is there anywhere free of CRT?
