Skip to comments.Harvard University to Hold Satanic Black Mass on Monday
Posted on 05/09/2014 4:12:41 PM PDT by Renfield
Harvard University, one of the most well-respected Ivy League schools in the world, has responded to rumors that they would be hosting a Black Mass performed by the Satanic Temple on Monday. As it turns out, they werent rumors at all.
The idea that Ivy League students have sinister pacts with the devil is usually the stuff of b-movies, but on Monday, the Harvard Extension Cultural Studies Club will play host to a Black Mass, a ritual meant to invoke Satan while desecrating the Catholic sacrament, usually through stabbing, crushing, or sexually defiling a communion wafer.
As you can imagine, religious groups are completely freaking out about it, even prompting the Archdiocese of Boston to issue a statement asking Harvard to shut down the event. Still, Harvard says that while they might not personally agree with the views expressed by student clubs, they support the rights of our students and faculty to speak and assemble freely...

How far an originally Christian mission training college has fallen.
Harvard played a significant role in the development of American Christian hymnody. I wouldn’t sent my kids there if they paid me.
My exact thoughts. What happened? When did it happen?
I wonder how “free” the pro-life group is at Harvard.......
The whole idea behind the Black Mass is that the power it summons comes from defiling the real body and blood of Christ.
Thus by definition agreeing that the Mass actually does achieve Transubstantiation.
if this was a desecration of an islamic ceremony....well, there would be no desecration ...
Harvard likes some speech, not others.
Shocking I tell you... /sarc

funny how that sentiment doesn’t seem to apply to Donald Sterling
Will there be readings from the Satanic Bible?
Does anybody happen to know Harvard's policy and history of accomodating pro-life groups?
Considering Harvard was founded in 1636 by Puritans, I bet those guys are spinning in their graves at warp speed.
An actual Black Mass involves human sacrifice, preferably of a baby, child or virgin so as to corrupt and kill/destroy what God made pure. This is simply attention hounding.

Lawrence Summers may have something to say about that.
So I’m wondering if Harvard University will allow the local Catholic Church to hold a Christian Mass the following Monday at the same location presented by the campus Newman Club.
Why can’t the white folks come?
So I question the equal application of Harvard's free speech policies.
