The author of “The Exorcist”, an alumnus of Georgetown University and former theology professor in the same institution, is preparing a canon law suit against his alma mater, because it fails to act in accordance with the name “Catholic”.
If you have any doubt about the real thinking of the man, Mr William P. Blatty (a Hail Mary for him is in order, surely?) , you must be informed he has created a society meant to, as they say today, “create awareness” about the attitude of the Sebelius pals.
You want to know the name of the organisation? It appears to be the “Father King Society to Make Georgetown Honest, Catholic, and Better”.
Isn’t it fitting that Father King, another former theology professor at Georgetown, is rumoured to have been the priest who inspired the character of Max von Sydow in the film?
I wish I would be able to point out more parallelisms but alas, I really, really can’t stand horror films.
Unhappily, Georgetown University provides me with the same show without even having to pay.
Best wishes to the “Father King Society to Make Georgetown Honest, Catholic, and Better”, and congratulations for the name!
