Is college any place for a faithful Catholic? November 11, 2015Posted by Tantumblogo in Basics, disaster, disconcerting, error, family, General Catholic, horror, Revolution, scandals, secularism, self-serving, sexual depravity, sickness, Society, Spiritual Warfare.
It has been almost impossible over the past two weeks to ignore the insane goings on at a number of universities around the country. At Yale and Missouri in particular, student agitators have more or less taken over the place, demanding – and getting – heads on the platter from college presidents and others for not kow-towing to the social justice warriors who have seized power, and who determine just how much groveling one must do both to them and the sick sexular pagan agenda they seek to advance.
Another example revealed itself in the past few weeks when faithful young Catholics – members of TFP Student Action – visited the University of Louisville. Anyone with a modicum of sense knows that the “tolerance” long espoused by leftists was just a means to an end – the end being their power – and now that they have it they are clamping down on free speech and the discourse of ideas like the loyal sons of Goebbels and Lavrenti Beria they are. TFP, as is their wont, fearlessly proclaimed the Truth of Jesus Christ on the campus in Louisville. They were accosted by satanists and sexular pagans of all stripes in the most brazen manner possible, short of simply walking up and wailing on them:
On Oct. 23, TFP Student Action members visited the University of Louisville to encourage students to defend true marriage. To the characteristic sounds of the bagpipes, TFP volunteers chanted slogans, distributed leaflets and held signs asking drivers to honk in support of natural marriage.
Everything happened as usual. Some students warmly received the TFP flyer, while others refused. Some accepted it just to rip it up. The majority of cars that drove by reacted with friendly honking.
However, about 45 minutes into the peaceful demonstration, several students, representing the homosexual movement on campus, began to react. First, a male student attempting to look like a woman approached, walking his dog, and wearing a shirt with the word “pride” printed on it in rainbow colors. He attempted to block one of the TFP volunteers’ signs with his body and became the day’s first example of pro-homosexual hypocrisy: preach tolerance, but never practice it………
……The student then attempted to rip the sign out of his hands. After failing to do so, TFP volunteer John Miller politely demanded the student answer whether the TFP volunteers had the right to express their own opinions, even if it differed from his own.
TFP member: “You’re not willing to let us speak our minds?”
Member: “You’re not open-minded enough for that?”
Member: “So it’s actually a one-way street?”
Student: “Yeah. I’m fine with that.”
Member: “So you are a hypocrite?”
Student: “Yeah. I’m fine with that…”
Member: “You can’t even live with a little opposition?”
Student: “Not when the opposition has existed for the past 2,000 years. [I hope you believe me when I tell you that much of leftism, and virtually the entire radical fringe, is motivated by anti-Christian hatred, at least in part. The sexual revolutionaries are motivated almost entirely by such hatred]
……..Here are some of the sound bites from the liberal students:
“You’re spreading hate! Get off our campus!” [Remember, leftists always project]
“I hate you and everything you stand for!” [see what I mean?]
“Lay that flag on the ground so I can stomp on it!”
“If people like you are going to heaven, I would rather go to hell!”
“If God exists, let Him strike me down now!” [“They know not what they do”]
The TFP members not only received verbal aggression from the pro-homosexual activists but also moral aggression. One pro-homosexual student attempted to “hug” a TFP volunteer from behind, but was thankfully stopped by a fellow volunteer. Another activist got very close to one of the TFP members, acting in a lewd and indecent way. Yet another acted in a similar manner with a dog that was present……. [the tranny with his own dog?]
…….A female student approached a TFP member:
“I hope satan stomps on you,” she said while recording the exchange on her iPhone. “Hail satan! Hail satan!”
The TFP member calmly replied: “Record this for your friends, the Immaculate Virgin Mary, Mother of God, is going to crush the head of the devil!”
The student became visibly bothered by the response and began to repeat her chant to the devil, to which the TFP member repeated his prayer to the Blessed Virgin Mary.
Folks, this is not Columbia, or UC-San Francisco, or Berkeley, or UW-Madison…..this is Louisville! A middle of the road Midwest college! The inmates are running the asylum at virtually all of these places. The few faithful Catholic colleges probably lack enough space to even begin to accept all those who would have an interest.
There are other options, however. Go to a commuter college close to home while avoiding all the leftist agitprop on campus. Go to college online. Skip 4 year college and go to a vocational school. Etc.
Dennis Prager brings up a trenchant point:
What would be the purpose of homeschooling your kids, bringing them up in the Faith, traveling miles to attend at the only orthodox parish in the Diocese, only to let your kids be brain-washed by hate-filled leftists at Notre Dame, De Paul, MIT, or Florida State when they hit 18?!? Sure, some kids come through OK…….I met my wife at UT, thank God……but that was in spite of the environment, certainly not because of it. The vast majority fall away.
Then again, that’s exactly what the leftist revolutionaries want. They want conservatives entirely blocked from college education, and turned into a despises second-tier class. But you can’t risk a child’s faith to fight a cultural battle. Maybe delay college education a few years until they are grown up enough to be sure in the Faith. I know a lot of vets starting college in their early-mid 20s are almost impervious to the indoctrination.
