Harvard University to Hold Satanic Black Mass on Monday
Disinformation ^ | 5-9-2014 | Greg Newkirk

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 weren’t 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”...

So they're going to acknowledge who's been running the show over there for awhile.

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?

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.

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.

Except Catholicism of course, which they plan to denigrate.

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.

Regarding post 13 of this thread, I found info concerning an anti-pro-life incident at Harvard.
Harvard fetusphobia: Pro-aborts destroy Elena posters

So I question the equal application of Harvard's free speech policies.

Yeah, what I was thinking...of course, it’s about “freedom”, Christian conservatives not welcome though.

Maybe 10,000 Christians should show up.

Good point, that’d be hate speech.

So why don’t we proclaim it?

At least the Harvard women are safe from being offered for human sacrifice!

"I wonder what John Adams would think of his alma mater?"

No need to wonder; he told us:

"Posterity! You will never know, how much it cost the present Generation, to preserve your Freedom! I hope you will make a good Use of it. If you do not, I shall repent in Heaven, that I ever took half the Pains to preserve it."

Maybe they’ll stage the event at an abortion clinic.

When did the purpose of a university become provocation instead of education? All these bizarre and perverted events taking place on college campuses - do people really defend these as a source of enlightenment or illumination?

I hope that technology destroys our current system of indoctrination and replaces it with real means of getting an education and training for a useful occupation. Schools and colleges are so 19th century.

They do. About 50 million times so far. Gonsel was basically a high priest and planned barrenhood is the church.

Schools and colleges are so 19th century

The problem is schools and colleges are so 20th century. The 20th century is when all the trouble stared.

Don't we wish schools and colleges are so 19th century. The 1800's was when colleges like Harvard and others all over America were started for Christian missionary training education.

As Patton is quoted as saying in Patton, "God how I hate the 20th century."

Why have a brick and mortar lib indoctrination factory, when most classes can be taught over the internet for a fraction of the cost?

That “school” should go up in flames...so f’n evil, so very “liberal” and “considerate: of the feelings of “others.” At least the temperature of the establishment will be up to Satan's standards.

I don't see any reason to freak out - evil cannot desecrate or defile the Holy Spirit, The Father, or The Son. Our God will not be damaged and we do not need to defend him any more than we would expect the baloney sandwich we made for lunch to defend us. Our sensibilities may be damaged/inflamed, but they can do no damage to He who is, was, and will always be.

You’re right; these days the old need to actually remain in one place in order to learn anything is now over. The real scholars can learn anything at any time and frankly there will be new ways of learning what you need to learn.

In Obamaland, Islam and Satanism are now protected and promoted religions while Christians are persecuted.

Will Harvard, in his commitment for freedom of expression, allow a ceremony centered around the desecration of the Koran, using it in a profane sexual ritual, or defecating and urinating on it?

Will Obama and Holder allow the desecration of the Koran with impunity as they are allowing the desecration of the most sacrosanct act of the Catholic Church? Will Obama put in jail those involved in the black mass as he put the Coptic Christian who dare to criticize Islam in a youtube for the Muslim persecution of Christians?
