Outrage!! Catholic Georgetown Chooses Sebelius For Commencement (Petition against this linked)

Outrage!! Catholic Georgetown Chooses Sebelius For Commencement

 
Friday, May 04, 2012 7:06 PM 

I can't believe it. I can, but I can't.

One of the leading ostensibly Catholic Universities, Georgetown, has invited the author of the virulently anti-Catholic HHS mandate, HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius, to be one of its commencement speakers.

There is no way to interpret this other than a direct slap and challenge to the USCCB.  Georgetown needs to lose its Catholic certification immediately.  The Cardinal Newman Society reports:

In what can only be interpreted as a direct challenge to America’s Catholic bishops, Georgetown University has announced that “pro-choice” Catholic Kathleen Sebelius, Secretary of the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) and lead architect of the Obama administration’s assault on religious freedom through the HHS contraception mandate, has been invited to speak at one of Georgetown’s several commencement ceremonies.

The Cardinal Newman Society has posted a petition to protest this outrage here: GeorgetownScandal.com.  It has also alerted Washington Cardinal Donald Wuerl and sent a letter to Georgetown President John DeGioia urging him to immediately withdraw the invitation.

We cannot allow this to happen or we cannot allow Georgetown to carry the name Catholic.

In the defining battle of our generation over religious libertyy and the rights of conscience, you are either with us or against us.  Georgetown has now affirmed, they are against us.

What an outrage! My father got his Ph.D from Georgetown in 1963. Things were much different there then. He must be spinning in his grave!

Georgetown is neither Catholic nor in any other way Christian. Georgetown should just as well declare itself Episcopalian and invite Vicki Jean Robinson. Ichabod! The Glory has departed!

Georgetown began its downfall in the late 1960’s when the administration gave in (caved in) to the demands of a handful of psycho SDSers (See: House Internal Security Committee, Hearings on SDS, 1969-70).

They have hired pro-Islamic jihadism/fundamentalist faculty and their law school had several hardcore reds/sympathizers (Cole, Drinan) as teachers. Also the former head of the Communist Party of DC/VA, Maurice Jackson, is/was a professor of African-American studies there.

Then you had GTU nymphomaniac Sandra Fluke (as in Fluke Me) and her deliberate pro-Obama contraceptive hoax.

I’m sure that Dean Edmund Walsh just spun around in his grave.

Don't be idiots. Georgetown is no more a Catholic University than charnel house/abortion mill Notre Dame. Neither abortuary has any official connection to the Roman Catholic Church.

Thanks for those facts.

Another interesting thing that many may not be aware of is that Sibelius has been excommunicated by her Bishop back in Kansas.

She is no longer a Catholic, period!

Catholic universities are in the toilet.

My dad was a professor at Notre Dame in the early to mid

60’s.(Father Hesbergh, Dean)

ND was very conservative then.....not now.

I went to Boston College in the early 70’s, because it was

a conservative school....now the have Gay Pride Week

Georgetown is all but begging for a release from the Church.

This will do it. It is waaay past time to cut them loose.

A dis-invite is simply not enough. It is too late.

Another possibility is to contact local bishops and ask them to contact Cardinal Wuerl to get this canceled. After all, every Bishop in the United States signed the petition against the HHS mandate.

I would think they would also be opposed to Sibelius speaking at any Catholic School.

I’ve noticed that Notre Dame and DePaul have gone to the darkside/Left. A real shame as ND and DePaul used to be great centers of education and stalwarts of Catholicism.

(I’m Jewish but I like good institutions of learning no matter what their religious basis is. I went to a Baptist-founded college, Temple Un. and then a secular one, American Un. Leftists got them both but there is some hope for their recovery).

Hesburgh was a good man but he often went offtrack a bit and ended up with the Left.

Now, my guy was the late Cardinal John O’Connor (NY). This man was an intellectual giant on foreign affairs. Loved talking to him.

As I told a friend today, I once met Cardinal Mindszenty (Hungary), another Catholic stalwart, a man of guts in the face of communist tyranny. Also a Russian friend of mine spent years in the Soviet gulag in Siberia with Ukrainian Cardinal Shlipsy (sp). You’d be amazed at what doors that relationship opened up to Avram, a Soviet Jew and myself when we spoke before Ukrainian groups.

We are all brothers and sisters under God, except at GTU.

St. Michael, the Archangel, defend us in battle
 Be our protection against the wickedness
and snares of the devil;
May God rebuke him, we  humbly pray,
 and do thou, O Prince of the heavenly host,
 by the power of God,
 Cast into hell Satan and all the evil spirits
who prowl through the world seeking the ruin of souls.
 Amen

You have to truly question which has the higher ethical standing: a secular institution with no religious affiliation or a school with religious credentials that outwardly compromises its ethical beliefs by honoring a person who thwarts everything the Church stands for. If those who attend Georgetown have any values in accordance with the schools principles, they will turn their backs when Sibilius is introduced to speak, and keep their backs to her until she concludes her speech.

The Jesuit order has devolved into an unspeakable lot. Very trying times for the Church. Georgetown is the nation’s premier Jesuit university. The Jesuits are sworn to defend the Pope specifically and the Church. They care to do neither. The Church is now faced with a very difficult problem. First the covering of Catholic symbols to accommodate Obama, the use of its law school to challenge doctrine and now the invitation of an excommunicated Catholic to further confuse the faithful. Can the Church tolerate such heretic behavior? It may be necessary to disband the Jesuit order and allow individual priests to make their own decisions. Georgetown and the Jesuits are doing grave harm to the Church at a very difficult time.

We need to pray for the Jesuits, but I do believe some of them are coming back to their senses!

It was a Jesuit Bishop, who today disinvited a dimocrat pol to speak at Mercy College in his diocese -- he went over the head of the college!

God bless Bishop Bishop George Murry, S.J.!

The Jesuits did indeed “devolve into an unspeakable lot”, but only the Latin American “Liberation Theology” bunch under Miguel D’Escoto and that other bearded marxist poet in Nicaragua - Ernesto ?; the Brazilian originator of Liberation Theology; Rev. Robert Drinan (D-Mass/GTU Law School); and some of the GTU faculty (re Latin America).

Also, there are some related groups, Quixote Center and Center of Concern, in DC, and William Davis, SJ, who was associated with the extreme leftist Catholic group, The Christic Institute.

On the other hand, the old Jesuits I knew from China/Red China, were firm opponents of communism because they had seen it first hand, and often suffered from it at first hand.

Unfortunately, in the US., the marxist members of the Jesuits got the press coverage, esp. from the Wash. Post whose writers were often as leftist as the people they covered (i.e. Karen DeYoung, literally a disinformation propagandist for the Marxist Sandinistas).

The old Council for Inter-American Security, and Steven Powell, in his book “Covert Cadres: Inside the Institute for Policy Studies”, exposed the leftist “Liberation Theology” jesuits, along with other leftist clergy from WOLA, EPICA, etc, phonebooth propaganda operations for the Latin American marxist movements.

Today, “Rev. Jim Wallis” is the new “Liberation Theology” jesuit surrogate with his marxist Soujourner Organization. Thanks to Mark Tooley and his Institute for Religion and Democracy, you can read weekly what the marxist Religious Left is doing in America, and you will be shocked.

I knew a number of patriotic conservative professors who taught at Notre Dame, GTU, GWU, and American Un., and often they found themselves alone, surrounded by the enemy. This is a tragic story that needs to be exposed on every level.

American Un. always had a leftist chaplain since I was there from 1966-70. Some were clowns, others hardcored marxists like former WOLA leader Joseph Eldridge, who showed up at a White House dinner about a month ago.
(WOLA: Washington Office on Latin America, a pro-marxist propaganda group relied upon by a number of leftwing congressmen/women for information). Also a pet source for the Carter Administration and possibly the Clinton/Obama administrations.

The Bishops and Pope say one thing, but consistently do the opposite thing.

They claim they are against the government telling them what to do in health care but advocate for socialized medicine in the name of social justice. The culture that goes with the economic system of “social justice” is state enforced amoral and unethical atheism.

They claim they are, morally and ethically, Catholics but bring in an anti-human life and anti-Catholic, anti-religious freedom atheist to a Catholic University for a key speech of influence on the graduates.

I think real Catholics are being taken for a ride and they should watch what they do much more and pay attention to what they say much less. Keep close to Jesus and cut your hearts’ ties to this bunch of decievers. I think they are leading Catholics over a spiritual cliff.

Fluck is a student (about to graduate - and wed!) at the G’town Law School. She made it clear she chose G’town precisely because it IS (nominally) a Catholic university, and she was hoping for exactly the opportunity the presented itself.

The article says Sebelius is speaking at “one of” its commencement ceremonies, maybe it’s the one for the Law School ... how fitting there, too, since she exhibited her total ignorance of the Constitution at a recent Congressional hearing.

Just sent the following letter to the editor of the Catholic Virginian:

The National Catholic Register reported that ostensibly Catholic University, Georgetown, has invited HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius to be one of their commencement speakers. She is the author of the anti-Catholic Health and Human services contraception mandate.

It is time for the Bishops of the USCCB to take concrete action. This should include the following:

1. A letter signed by all of the bishops condemning this action and a letter to the President of Georgetown stating that unless Ms. Sebelius is immediately disinvited the university will be prohibited from calling itself Catholic, until it can document fully that it is in full communion with the Catholic Church.

2. And open letter to all Catholic politicians regardless of party affiliation stating that if they support legislation which contradicts the Church’s teaching on abortion or contraception that they will be publically ex-communicated and prohibited from receiving all sacraments until they publically admit their error and repent of these actions.

For to long politicians have caused confusion and gathered support for anti-Catholic legislation by using the public display of their religion as a shield to deflect opposition to anti-Catholic activities.

It is time for our Bishops to lead the flock in condemn these institutions and public figures which are Catholic in name only and to educate the public as to exactly what the Catholic Church teaches to prevent this from reoccurring.
