The latest shame of Notre Dame December 6, 2012Posted by tantamergo in Basics, disaster, error, foolishness, General Catholic, sadness, scandals, sexual depravity, sickness, Society.
Do they even remotely think about Our Lady there anymore? Notre Dame has decided it’s stayed off the cultural bandwagon long enough, and it’s time to go full-board with the destructive “gay rights” movement. They are standing up a homosexual student organization. And Mary wept (my emphasis and comments):
In what the University of Notre Dame’s student newspaper is calling “a historic decision,” the University announced plans for a University- recognized homosexual student organization as well as a full-time student development staff position focused on LGBTQ issues.
The announcement was made as the result of a long review of the University’s policies. According to the student newspaper, Fr. John Jenkins, the president of the university, said that the plan “grows out of our mission as a Catholic university” and is “directed by that fundamental mission in a profound way.”
But although the plan describes the student organization as acting consistent with Catholic teaching, Fr. Jenkins seemed to indicate some doubt about how closely it will be regulated…….[of course it won't be regulated, that would defeat the purpose]
……“I think if people look carefully at what we’re doing and really, in a thoughtful way, evaluate it, I think thoughtful people will see that this makes sense,” reportedly said Fr. Jenkins. “It makes sense for a Catholic university like Notre Dame to provide such structures to serve their students effectively.”
Oh, what preening condescension. What hideous pride. “If you look carefully, thoughtfully…….” translation: if you succumb to modernist sexular pagan sensibiilities, this makes perfect sense. Notre Dame is first and foremost a university of the predominant sexularist atheist culture, with some residual trappings of Catholicism. It’s been that way for 45 years, ever since the disastrously modernist Fr. Hesburgh ran the place, it’s only becoming so obvious now that the utter collapse of a distinctive, faithful Catholic identity is impossible to ignore. So sad.
