One of the reasons I started this blog was because of some really bad Lenten conferences which took place in the north deanery of the Dallas Diocese back in 2010.  The Sr. Joyce Rupp conference at St. Elizabeth Seton in Plano was, of course, the main impetus, but shortly after I learned of the Rupp conference, another conference hosted by Dr. Rick Gaillardetz at St. Mark in Plano came to my knowledge and I wrote about all the problems with the infamous Dr. G.  In point of fact, Dr. Gaillardetz is far, far more dangerous than Sr. Rupp, as he is a theologian of great renown and reputation – somehow – and even spent years training many Dallas and other dioceses’ priests at St. Mary’s in Houston.  He is definitely on the progressive side of the spectrum, and has opined such very helpful things such as theologians being the “real” Magisterium – so much easier to get your way without those old men in Rome! – use of contraception being fine as long as one is “sincere” in their beliefs, all manner of error regarding sex and marriage: the usual panoply of progressive thought, which just happens to reject two millenia of constant moral belief.   Perhaps the most incredible argument Gaillardetz has made is that many infallible Dogmas aren’t, because they weren’t proclaimed ex cathedra by the Pope.  That would limit the number of actual Dogmas to just a handful.  I’m sure he would state I’m just too dumb to understand the nuances of his highly advanced theology, but I’m far from his only critic.

Anyways, I mentioned that Gaillardetz instructed seminarians at St. Mary’s for years.  That sort of clears a whole bunch of things up, doesn’t it?  Snark aside, he moved on to the University of Toronto some time ago, and has been there ever since.  To gain some idea of what kind of place this university is, they just announced they are hosting a student orgy!  How very progressive of them!

According to an article by reporter Katie Daubs of The Toronto Star, the University of Toronto’s sexual education center will kick off its annual Sexual Awareness Week next week at “a downtown club that bills itself as a water-themed adult playground, where swingers are welcome and sex is allowed everywhere but the hot tub.”

“U of T is holding an orgy, and you’re invited! You just need your student ID” one Reddit user posted in a University of Waterloo forum.

But wait, it gets better. The article goes on to note the club where the kick off event will take place boasts “easy-to-clean surfaces, with sanitizing wipes (and) baskets of condoms.”

Meanwhile, campus officials are not bending over backward to distance themselves from the event, the newspaper reports:

“When asked whether it was a U of T-sanctioned event, and whether the university had any concerns, a spokesperson responded with an emailed statement: “The University will not attempt to censor, control or interfere with any group on the basis of its philosophy, beliefs, interests or opinions expressed, unless and until these lead to activities which are illegal or which infringe the rights and freedoms.” [translation: “We’ll happily and eagerly trample all over the rights of the Church and persecute Christians to our greatest possible abilitiy, but when it comes to leftist-inspired sexual immorality, that’s the kind of ‘right’ we can really get behind. Uhhh……so to speak.”

By the way, in case you’re wondering, the University of Toronto’s sexual education center is “an affiliated levy group of the University of Toronto Students Union. …The group’s mission is to foster a sex-positive attitude [really, is that what we need?  A “sex-positive” attitude?  Is that what our culture is lacking, enough license and utter abandon when it comes to sex?  Give me a break.  This is just another pathetic effort to establish their radical bona fides by scandalizing the few remaining moral people, and proving how transgressive they are.  What a joke. As all the evidence regarding “hooking up” on college campuses indicates, there is nothing remotely radical or countercultural in this.  If you want to be countercultural on a college campus today, be a chaste, orthodox Catholic giving public witness to the Faith.  See how long they “tolerate” that] in the greater U of T area, by offering information, programming, safer-sex supplies, and peer counseling. … Their sexual awareness week includes a discussion on sex positivity, an interactive sex toy demonstration and an afternoon of pornography,” the Toronto Star reports.

Of course, I doubt Gaillardetz has anything to do with this.  He may deplore it, for all I know.  But this kind of nonsense is even more widespread in Canada than it is here, at least in part because the Church in Canada has collapsed even further than the Church here in the US.  De-frocked heretics like Gregory Baum have made sure of that. I have gotten the sense from his writings that Gaillardetz does find the intellectual environment, the very living environment, of Canada more conducive to his progressive outlook than crazy right wing hillbilly Texas.  So very sorry to disappoint him.
