The Catholic University Of Seton Hall And Homo “Marriages”

PC caption: surprisingly, Ronald Reagan liked fags.

Seton Hall, a Catholic University, has scheduled a course on so-called “gay marriage” (let us repeat it once again: homosexuals are not gay, happy people are gay; and they cannot marry, because they are of the same sex).

The unusual event (as the times are) is that this time the local Archbishop has reacted promptly and has asked the University to change its mind. The affirmation of the Archbishop (that the course be “out of synch”with Catholic teaching) is a rather big understatement but it gives the idea of what is happening anyway.

It turns out that the (Catholic, or so they say) University of Seton Hall is not impressed. Not only have they not done anything to backpedal, but the University has openly mocked the Archbishop by stating that they never had a problem with the course, though “it’s been a problem for, it seems, some people outside of it.” It seems. Some people. Congratulations.

The person chosen for this work of enlightenment of Catholic young minds is a Mr. W. King Mott. Predictably, Mr. Mott is an openly practising sodomite. He states that the aim of his course is to help the students to “gain an appreciation and respect for disinterested analysis that can be used to formulate an informed opinion”. Leaving aside the attempt at being intellectual, the implication here is that to share the Catholic opinion about the matter is to be 1) not informed, 2) biased and 3) disrespectful.

The “disinterested analysis” should come, instead, from a person already demoted in the past for defining the Church “prima facie homophobic” and an aged member of “homosexualist” groups. He is most certainly the man for a disinterested analysis, isn’t he?

Seton Hall lets it be known that there is “nothing” the Archbishop can do to prevent the course from taking place. They are probably right. Still, it would be nice if the Archbishop would obtain that this university is deprived of the right to call itself “Catholic”. One can be secular and homosexualist and will not be burned at the stake for that (not the times anymore, they say). But we should at least be spared the hypocrisy of such institutions pretending to be Catholic.

  1. M,

    Time to move beyond ‘DEFCON 1’.

  2. Precisely (or almost precisely) the same thing is happening in Milwaukee, Wisconsin where the prestigious Marquette University tried to hire an unrepentent lesbian to become a distinguished faculty member. The local Ordinary, Archbishop Listecki, stepped in (amazingly) to SUGGEST that this was not a good idea. “Suggest”, mind you.

    Eventually the University backtracked and rescinded the offer of employment but not before issuing a string of mea culpas and paying this queer off handsomely. It’s hard to say whether or not Listecki’s intervention was the deciding factor but I do know that many alumni were furious over it.

    The point is, however, that the Bishops DO have the authority to step in on matters like this, if they want to. A University may claim some kind of autonomy from the local Ordinary all they want to, but when things touch on matters of Faith and morals they have to step in, and the University has to comply, if they want to continue (masquerading) as a Catholic college.

    All it takes is guts.

    • Fully agree, Schmenz.
      In the end, it’s about not pretending to be what one is not. You want to hire a lesbian activist? Don’t call yourself “Catholic”.

      I also think that a “suggestion” is a tad too weak. Unless one is so strong that when he “suggests”, other obey 😉
