Catholic university to host ‘rainbow prom’ promoting same-sex ‘marriage’
lifesitenews.com ^ | 02/15/2014 | MATTHEW ARCHBOLD

Posted on 02/15/2014 5:31:13 AM PST by massmike

Santa Clara University will be hosting a “Rainbow Prom” this Friday with a pro-same-sex marriage theme, according to the University’s website.

SCU’s Rainbow Resource Center states the event titled “Say ‘I Do’ to Marriage Equality,” is sponsored by the student groups GASPED (Gay and Straight People for the Education of Diversity) and the Santa Clara Community Action Program (SCCAP). The University’s website urges students to “bring your partner and/or friends—all are welcome!”

The event was created in 2010 after a high school student was not allowed to attend a prom with a same-sex date. The Santa Clara Community Action Program website describes it as “the hottest, freshest, most inclusive party of the year!”

“This year's theme is weddings! Say I do to Marriage Equality,” the group states. “Put on your fancy pants, your dancing shoes, ask that special someone to be your date, and maybe you'll be the one to catch the bouquet! wink”

The event is exclusively for students of the Jesuit University.

Santa Clara’s Activities Programming Board (APB) advertised a “speed dating” event on Tuesday night on its Facebook site by urging students to use the event to “find yourself a date for Rainbow Prom or for Valentine's Day!”

I’m gonna keep throwing this out there until everybody is talking about it:

I’ll call a relationship between two men or two women a “Marriage” if they’ll call an embryo and a fetus a “Baby”.

Isn’t that a fair compromise?

“Universities” and “schools” have become recruiting stations for the homosexual agenda. Freaky! No wonder the millennials are too “stressed” out to learn anything.

Oddly, the founding principles of the Society of Jesus (Jesuits) do not mention gay proms.

“Whoever desires to serve as a soldier of God beneath the banner of the Cross in our Society, which we desire to be designated by the Name of Jesus, and to serve the Lord alone and the Church, his spouse, under the Roman Pontiff, the Vicar of Christ on earth, should, after a solemn vow of perpetual chastity, poverty and obedience, keep what follows in mind. He is a member of a Society founded chiefly for this purpose: to strive especially for the defence and propagation of the faith and for the progress of souls in Christian life and doctrine.”

I thought it was Catholic U in Washington DC. Glad it is not. Anything Catholic in California is not Catholic in the South.

If I was paying for it, I’d get my son or daughter out of there, fast! And I would never give a cent more to ANY Catholic organization.

What is it precisely that you Latins’ bishops do? Surely the local ordinary could have put a stop to this.

These “catholic” universities have been anything but for years now. Do not blame the entire Catholic Church for what these schools do. Just because the schools were started by Catholics doesn’t mean they still are.

So true.........after laughing, I thought to myself, this isn’t “Catholic”, its CCU, meaning “California Catholic University”.

So far I see the Pope in overt violation of at least three of the Ten Commandments. And it’s likely going to get worse.

I’m sorry for the Church and The Flock.

Headline led me to believe it was my son’s alma mater, Catholic U. Not that it would be a shock...

When I was about 10 years old (I am now 57), I remember my father saying the Communists would destroy America by eventually controlling what he called the "4 spheres of influence". Media, education, religion, family. That was 47 years ago. Wise man. I thank God that I was raised a conservative Christian.

What 3 commandments has the pope violated? By the way ... The pope doesn’t run the American universities.

Just send our contributions to other more deserving colleges and charities. We are not going to subsidize anti-Christian universities or organizations

He’s definitely in violation of the Tenth Commandment with his wealth redistribution naivety, which, by extension, leads to breakdowns about bearing false witness (9) in conjunction with the admonition not to steal (8).

Yes sir, the Pope’s on a tear. Which will be next?

And since these universities have no fealty to the Pope, and the Pope has no control over Catholic universities, what is the point of Catholicism in this regard anyway?

Name only. Like I said ... These so called catholic universities stopped being catholic long ago.

Did you know that Texas A&M produces more priests each year than does Notre Dame?

Money is a mystery in the church," he told me. "We don't know what we have or what we spend it on, so we lurch from crisis to crisis." Based on the kinds of numbers provided in this column, Harris estimates that total annual revenue for the Catholic church in America works out to around $153 billion, but he's the first to admit that's really just a guess.

Harris believes the resources exist to pull together accurate financial data if the church gets its act together: "This is not an impoverished organization," he says.

from here

And this is just the U.S....There is so much money from power donors and profits from Catholic healthcare along with billions allocated from politicians to these Catholic organizations, I doubt that a pope would be allowed to throw a wrench into the gears of the money machine...

I'd say the popes are just letterheads to take the public eyes of the real money machine of the Catholic religion...

The Body of Christ, my foot...

Why doesn’t the Catholic church do something about this? Can’t they at least make them yank the “Catholic” from their description?

Right Brother, I highly recommend you watch this, and pass it along to friends and family.. I think I even said (right after it came out) what was said in the description posted above.. The puzzle pieces DID fall in to place with me when I watched it.

Oh.. one more thing.... I had taken a screencap from the vid to make those 2 pics.. On the website it said no part can be copied **copyright laws**... I sent an email telling them that I HAD to take the screencaps in order to get the message out... Have had no issues with them, so I guess they saw no problem with it.

I truly pray that they are priests who will stand up to the kind of schlock this latest Pope is dispensing. For only thereby and in them, with God’s help, will the Church survive the 21st century.

Yes but the profs have nothing to do with the Catholic Church in College Station and the way the Church reaches out to the students.

Upon further review:

(from the college site’s FAQ section):

Q. Is the University owned by the Catholic Church?

A. The University is chartered by the State of California as a public trust, and governed by a board of trustees. Neither the Catholic Church nor the Society of Jesus owns the University, but the inspiration for the University is its Catholic and Jesuit heritage.
