A disheartening report from the American Society for the Defense of Tradition, Family and Property better know as TFP reveals that 101 (41%) of putative Catholic Colleges carry pro-homosexual organizations among their sponsored student activities. Worse still was the news that every single Jesuit university and college was on the pro homosexual school list.
These student “clubs” sponsor events presenting and promoting homosexual conduct and culture as well as the redefining of marriage in direct contradiction to the teachings of the Catholic Church.
Georgetown University, America’s first Catholic college, promotes such anti Catholic activities as “weeks” for National Coming Out, Gender Liberation and Pride. It even conducts a separate LGBTQ (Lesbian Gay Bisexual Transgender and Queer) graduation ceremony!
Seton Hall University in New Jersey now offers a course called, “The Politics of Gay Marriage” taught by a homosexual activist.
Not content to debase itself with the invitation of Barack Obama, the most pro abortion President in history, as commencement speaker in 2009 and subsequently press charges against praying protestors, Notre Dame University sponsors a week long homosexual festival featuring pro homosexual speakers and movies.
Catholics are not overlooking these outrages
A report from Catholic Culture says, “Contributions to the University of Notre Dame fell by over $120 million during the fiscal year in which President Barack Obama was awarded an honorary degree. Several dozen bishops criticized the university’s decision during the months preceding the May 17, 2009, commencement ceremony, and an alumni group called for the withholding of donations.”
Catholic Culture continues with, “During the July 2008 – June 2009 fiscal year, gifts to the university totaled $226,689,374, including $60,133,035 in government grants. During the July 2007 – June 2008 fiscal year, in contrast, gifts totaled $347,155,514, including $62,241,121 in government grants. Thus most of the decline in contributions consisted in a decline in private donations rather than a drop in government funding.”
Church attendance and weekly donations might be falling, but those Catholics who continue to adhere to Catholic Church doctrine have not caved into the mantra of secular humanism that has replaced true Catholicism on so many once Catholic campuses.
Four years of Catholic college education should leave one with a renewed love for the doctrines of the Church. In these schools when that happens it is in spite of the administration, not because of it. Think about this when you discuss the selection of a college for your graduating high school senior around your Christmas dinner table.
