Principal Nancy Matteo is a Catholic school in Pennsylvania who sent out invitations to a graduation dance that featured a huge photo of Ellen DeGeneres.

Realizing her mistake, the principal apologized for including a person openly living the gay lifestyle.

Matteo said it was “completely wrong” to include such a “poor role model” on the invite, especially considering her sexuality and that she “lives her life outside the teachings of the Catholic Church.” She claims she was “distracted” when she included the photo, by the way.

In an e-mail to parents asking for the invites back, Matteo said, “I need every single invitation returned and I will personally destroy them… Once again, I am sorry for my lack of forethought. I look forward to receiving the old invitations and distributing new ones.” source

Matteo also vowed to personally destroy every single copy of the invitation she could get her hands on.
