Notre Dame Announces Easter Week Homosexuality Events
The Bulletin ^ | 12 April 2009 | JOHN P. CONNOLLY

Posted on 04/13/2009 1:47:55 PM PDT by grace522

By JOHN P. CONNOLLY, The Bulletin Monday, April 13, 2009 The University of Notre Dame, which has been criticized in recent weeks for inviting President Barack Obama to this year’s commencement, announced a series of events during Easter week to promote inclusivity of homosexuality.

StaND Against Hate Week, announced on Holy Thursday, includes a showing of the film “Prayers for Bobby,” which reportedly blames a mother’s Christian beliefs for her gay son’s suicide. The event will take place from tomorrow through Friday, which is during the Christian celebration of Easter week.

The week is co-sponsored by Notre Dame’s Gender Relations Center, student government and University Counseling Center.

“Christianity is under attack from within our own Catholic universities,” said Patrick J. Reilly, President of The Cardinal Newman Society, an organization that works to preserve the identity of Catholic colleges. “The bad news continues, perhaps appropriately on the day when we recall Christ’s terrible agony in the Garden of Gethsemane. We need Catholics worldwide to draw the line, here and now, by joining more than 255,000 witnesses for the Faith at NotreDameScandal.com.”

The week includes a screening of the film “Prayers for Bobby,” which portrays Mary Griffith, a faithful Christian mother who seeks spiritual healing for her homosexual son, as the cause of her son’s suicide. According to a review at ReligionDispatches.org, the film biography ignores the real-life Bobby’s drug use and “stint as a gay prostitute.” The real Mary Griffith has renounced her faith and champions homosexual rights, including same-sex marriage.

The announced agenda for the week indicates no effort to teach students about Catholic teaching on homosexual activity as gravely sinful.

April 17 is the one-year anniversary of Pope Benedict XVI’s address to Catholic educators in Washington, D.C., during which he called Catholic colleges and universities to a stronger Catholic identity.

Soon the depravity of this country is going to make the Romans look like amateurs. Give it 10-20 years. They’ll be throwing Christians to the lions again.

I could see good reason for a wholesale dismissal of certain students and faculty from Notre Dame, which after all is SUPPOSED to represent the Roman Catholic tradition in North America, and whose purpose is to inculcate the virtues, values and standards by which its alumni are SUPPOSED to live.

By their fruits you shall know them.

I think one of you has the Catholic ping list. With the Obama stuff going on, how the heck did this fly under the radar??? Why does the RCC of all organizations have the nerve to name the name of Jesus Christ while putting their sanction on this place too???

this has to be a joke right

Gender relations, supposed catholic school

what the hell is going on in the catholic religion, please tell me

On my time in the north east I found many catholics and they were either Dems or liberals
You cannot be both, Catholic on Sunday and Dem on a Monday,

the north east should be mostly red and yet is is blue and yet catholic.

The Pope needs to get over here , take every priest bishop.rev whom is not telling their flock their faith and what their elected officials stand on which is against their faith
he then should replace them with proper priests.
then he needs to go to the likes of this school and actually tell the staff etc that they are at a catholic school and what that means and no it does not mean promoting perverted queers

in the last 3 months I hear every day these homos going on about their likeness of the same sex and yet they say it is their business.

in these past 3 months the left and obama have changed this country alright and the media is ignoring it

Pelosi and Kennedy are fine examples fo so-called catholic/liberal/democrats. The Catholic church has to make the Catholic teachings quite clear to these people or kick them out of the faith.

I believe the Pope forbade Pelosi to take communion until she got right (which if I know Nancy, will be when pigs fly).

I’m afraid the only “Dame” this place seems to be fit to make “Notre” is the harlot of Babylon. Obama was bad enough. This isn’t some high minded “intellectual exploration” this is whoring.
