Read Mau-mauing the Georgetown Flak-Catchers? by Robert Royal.
- Richards has run Planned Parenthood for a decade. During that time it has aborted at least 3.25 million innocent children – and sold their body parts for money.
- As to the “Catholic and Jesuit identity,” we’re not talking about the distinguished history of Georgetown, the first Catholic institution of higher learning in America and still the most prestigious university in the capital of the world’s most powerful nation. We’re talking about the ghost of that institution, a disembodied spirit whose faint outline, like a bad conscience, not quite yet extinguished, haunts the otherwise secularized day-to-day activity on campus, which it would be difficult to distinguish from that of any other American university today. Hardly a surprise, because Georgetown, and most other top-notch Catholic universities, long ago decided that being universities in good standing (on the modern American model) trumps their Catholic “identity.”
- The Catholic Church and other religious bodies with traditional morals are accused every day now of violations of basic human dignity and human rights over their views of homosexual activity and gay “marriage.” Lots of us now even find ourselves called bigots just for believing there should be Men’s and Women’s bathrooms.
- … universities like Georgetown who claim the name of Catholic simply aren’t anymore. And, barring miracles, never will be again. They dishonor the very name. There are other places where real Catholics can get a real Catholic education.
