Posted on 04/05/2013 6:34:56 AM PDT by massmike
Religious liberty groups are mobilizing to defend the chaplain of George Washington Universitys Newman Center after gay students launched an effort to have the priest fired because he preaches against homosexuality and abortion.
Its discrimination against Catholics, said Patrick Reilly, president of the Cardinal Newman Society. Secular colleges are fast becoming a very unsafe place for Catholics who hold true to their faith. This is a very, very sad situation.
Damian Legacy and Blake Bergen said they want the universitys Office for Diversity and Inclusion to investigate the priest and they are calling for the student government association to defund the Newman Center.
To have my faith leader view me that way, just because of one piece of the way that God made me , and to think that one part is responsible for the destruction of my human dignity, it just didnt, I cant even begin to describe the mental conflict that it creates, Legacy told the newspaper.
The two students also cited academic studies that linked the inability to sleep and loss of appetite with being around homophobic behavior.
Reilly told Fox News that he found the incident absolutely disturbing.
Chastity outside of marriage has been the Catholic church teaching for more than 2,000 years, he said. The only discrimination occurring there is trying to silence a priest for trying to teach the Catholic faith.

Kick out the students, not the priest! Give ‘em something to scream about!
A strong indication that the university evidently has no academic standards - after all, the students quite obviously have nothing to do. And (guessing) - most of those who are “protesting” are “studying” academic majors requiring the IQ of a politician or journalist.
I want homosexuals removed. These people are really starting to get on my nerves.
I’d tell them to GFT ... but they already do.
The so called “Office for Diversity and Inclusion” is lovin’ this! Makes them feel like they’ve got a purpose. No “Office” could be more destructive for America. These idiots are shaping the mind set of future “leaders”.
ANTI-PRIEST GAY WANTS PRIEST REMOVED
This will not stop...it WILL get worse and millions of people who fraudulently call themselves Americans will stand and applaud as we start jailing people for their faith and religious convictions because they have engineered hatred for people who dare to call something a sin!
Would the gay mafia demand an Islamic Imam be removed from a university for reading from the Koran regarding homosexuals??
I believe we all know the answer.....
I thought liberals were “open-minded, tolerant and DIEverse?”
I’m reminded of a story about Aloise Hitler renting space for a beer hall from a Jewish landlord. Then Hitler wanted the whole building to hold his little pre-nazi meetings the landlord said no.
The landlord ended up fleeing from Germany in fear for his life.
“We want him removed because we disagree with him politically”.
who gives a rat’s axe what the students want, why are they at university? because they are stupid and need to learn things. so what makes them think they can make demands.
How dare this priest harbor thoughts and principles the little Nazi Diversity Mongers do not approve of!
They are so blinded by thier leftist brainwashing they can't see what hypocrites they are.
The irony would be side-splitting if it wasn't so frightening.
What kind of bullsh*t is this?
The conservative girl planning to attend UofM is going to really stir things up.
I cant even begin to describe the mental conflict that it creates, Legacy told the newspaper.
Mental conflict? So he is admitting homosexuality is a mental illness. Or it could be his GUILT over knowing what he is doing is wrong. They don’t want to hear the truth so they want to silence it.
Homosexuality is a mental disease and should be treated that way.
"Pro-gay students want priest removed from university"
Sounds a lot different, huh? Liberals have siezed both the narrative and the semantics.
Neutron North Korea and move all radical homos and libs there and let them start their own utopia.
All that’s missing are the brown shirts and jackboots. Ernst Roehm lives.
