The dictatorship of relativism is alive at the University of Notre Dame. While the 88 pro-lifers who peacefully prayed on campus during the 2009 commencement fiasco still face charges and possible jail time, the homosexual movement is welcomed.
From April 12-16, Notre Dame plans to host a pro-homosexual "Stand Against Hate Week." According to the promotional flier, the events are being sponsored by various groups, including the Office of the President (Fr. John I. Jenkins, C.S.C.), the Office of Student Affairs, the Core Council for Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual & Questioning Students, the Feminist Voice and Campus Ministry.
Why should any Catholic university cater to the homosexual movement's agenda and sow moral confusion among students?
Ask ND's Board of Trustees to cancel the events The week-long program mentions a screening of the pro-homosexual film "The Laramie Project," a lecture in the Carey Auditorium titled "Homosexuality Under the Dome: Past Struggles and Present Solutions," free t-shirt distribution, and finally a "Day of Silence" on April 16.
Important to remember is the fact that the "Day of Silence" is a pro-homosexual propaganda tool designed by GLSEN (Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network) to persuade young school children and college students to show sympathy and acceptance for homosexuality.
To counteract this moral threat against the innocence of children, nineteen pro-family organizations formed a coalition encouraging parents to walk out of school with their children on the "Day of Silence." Exodus International is also sponsoring a nationwide "Day of Truth" in schools.
For the record, GLSEN:
And now, GLSEN's "Day of Silence" agenda is being welcomed right into the hallowed halls of Notre Dame. In fact, the moral teaching of the Catholic Church condemning homosexual acts as "intrinsically disordered" is what is being silenced.
In fact, beginning in 2004, the University of Notre Dame started hosting a yearly "Queer Film Festival." One such event featured Terrence McNally, author of the blasphemous production Corpus Christi that portrays Our Lord Jesus Christ and the Apostles as homosexuals.
Reacting to the scandal back then, TFP Student Action lead multiple petitions of peaceful protest addressed to Fr. John I. Jenkins, politely requesting that he cancel events that promote homosexual vice. Thank God, we believe these efforts made a difference. According to an article published in The Observer on February 16, 2009, "not only will there be no gay film festival this year [at the University of Notre Dame], it's probably kaput for good."
Protest this new scandal at ND
TFP Student Action invites its members to contact Notre Dame's Board of Trustees today. Ask them not to allow the university to become a vehicle for the homosexual movement. It's a matter of Catholic morality. Honor. Fidelity. And truth.
What will the protest achieve? Maybe the scandal will be canceled.
More importantly, God will be honored by our peaceful action. Our faithful protest against the sexual revolution is like a prayer that rises up before the throne of God. Together we affirm: "Even when others abandon Thee and scorn Thy Law, my Lord, I pledge to remain faithful to Thy Commandments."

Why of course they do.
The Catholic Church should excommunicate the University of Notre Dame, because they clearly abandoned Christian values long ago.
Is there anything I can do to encourage them to really show their support through a “Year Of Silence?”...;)
It is kinda difficult to speak when your mouth is full............
Day of Silence? The queers are finally going to STFU for a while?
ND alumni are urged to continue their own protests, “Checkbooks of Absence; Wallets of Emptiness.”
I say a group should go sit on the quad and bang pots all day to make noise.
Don’t ask, don’t tell.
Alumni are embarassed about this; I certainly am. Not as embarrased as we were about the 2007 ND Football season (Wins: 3 Losses: 9), but pretty embarrassed.
I can tell you it was still a Catholic school for the most part in 1987, Hesburg’s last year, but the PC was a-creepin’ in.
“ND alumni are urged to continue their own protests, Checkbooks of Absence; Wallets of Emptiness.”
May I add:
Endowments of Null.
Legacies of Zero.
I think the leaders at Notre Dame need to read their bibles and quit PCing.
Obama is America’s punishment.
for the sin of voting for Obama.
The university system has been the ruination of America. Look at all the “great” universities. They were established to teach godly values, yet they have all descended to teaching hedonism.
The Catholic Church should force the University of Notre Dame to change it’s name.
It is an insult to Our Lady to have her name associated with such a place.
Right ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,shut up and go away . Good idea .
You don't, however, seem to understand what excommunication is, nor what sort of institution is Notre Dame.
The two most relevant points are: (1) only an individual can be excommunicated; and (2) Notre Dame is separately owned and operated corporation, not owned nor operated either by the Catholic Diocese of South Bend nor even by the religious order that founded it, the CSC (Holy Cross fathers). It passed into essentially secularized ownership some 40 years ago. For what it's worth, its constitution and by-laws say it's supposed to uphold the Catholic faith. But there's no institutional enforcement mechanism except, really, public opinion: so good luck with that.
I'm not trying to be evasive here. I'd be thrilled to see Rev. Kevin C. Rhoades (who was just newly installed as Bishop this January) speak out strongly about it, whether he has any direct authority over the University or not.
On the other hand, a "Day of Silence" for homosexual activists is, in its way, something that has its own appeal--- especially if extended for as long as possible.
