Skip to comments.Notre Dame Calls Cops On School-Authorized Table Promoting Traditional Marriage
Posted on 05/07/2014 8:01:58 AM PDT by topher
Members of a group that promotes traditional heterosexual marriage say school officials at the University of Notre Dame called the police after group members set up a table on campus even though an officially recognized on-campus student group had received permission for the display.
The cops rushed to the scene after they got the call from school officials at the Roman Catholic school and quickly slapped a cease and desist order on the conservative group, Tradition Family Property Student Action, reports Campus Reform.

I guess they are the same old school that does not represent Catholic values.
I still say they should change their name to Knute Rockne U -- they are Football school -- that is all.
This is crazy. So the conservative students could have a table present, but weren’t allowed to have anyone staff the table...at a supposedly Catholic institution. It seems that so many Catholic schools aren’t really interested in following Catholic teachings anymore.
Is it too much to hope that if not the Pope of Rome himself, then at least the local ordinary, will call the administration to account?
This country is circling the drain.
Is anyone else amazed at this?
Less than 20 years ago, Congress passed the Defense of Marriage Act, by overwhelming margins. The definition of marriage was not controversial at all back then.
Nowadays, not only is the definition of marriage controversial, we also have a situation in which the liberals charge you are bigoted, if you support the definition of marriage which was not controversial not too many years ago.
So, we have a situation, in which you can’t even support traditional marriage at a Catholic university. The Catholic Church recognizes only traditional monogamous marriage, but we’re not allowed to talk about that aspect of church doctrine at a church affiliated university.
We live in strange times. Orwell’s 1984 is here.
whatever my personal views on gay marriage are -they are of no consequence-—BUT—isn’t this an RC school? I thought the RC Church does not support same sex marriage. I guess Notre Damned really doesn’t give a flying focaccia about those things. More importantly, what about freedom of conscience and freedom of speech - I guess that is relative in academia (the highest bastion of the Left along with Hollywood). When the RC church comments about socio-political topics yes, I read what they have to say—but do I really take them seriously? It depends (not the kind that I wear-lol)
Yes, but if we just vote for E-Republicans who can win, and not those rascally constitutionalist types, it will be allllllll better. They promise.
The “offended” set routinely calls the police for non-crimes. The police routinely arrest innocent people for non-crimes that violate political correctness.
The police now enforce political correctness.
When was this country founded? How many years did it last as a beacon of freedom?
It started with Hesburgh and the “Land of Lakes” statement more than 40 years ago when the Marxists were marching through the Institutions to take over all perceptions/minds of the masses, especially necessary in the Catholic Church, since along with Abp. Fulton Sheen and the time of Dodd (Bella Dodd), the CC was the most visceral, organized force against Marxism and Freemasonry, and a force for Truth in the World, that even gained the White House of the US.
The Catholic Church had an organization that the Marxists/Communists envied and subverted. it is their M.O.
(It is why all the molestations/homosexual takeover (Fr. Oko’s Report). Vatican II allowed all the chaos/subversion to occur and many people inside the CC know that Masons/Marxists were responsible for setting up the Church for the invasion and looking the other way....”Good Bye, Good Men”.
The Catholic Church had to be subverted/destroyed to gain control of the World. Truth has to be subverted and kids confused—only Lies can be allowed in the public square “for the children” and in the Universities...the Marxist training ground.
Harvard was once a Puritan Divinity School.
What? And risk calling down the thunder from the Gay Nazi Squad? Au contraire mon frere. That would take some backbone.
The local bishop also has jurisdiction over this University -- it is wants to claim to be Catholic.
Maybe people need to politely contact the Bishop's Office.
I am a classmate of the President of Notre Dame, John I. Jenkins. Jenkins is a member of the Congregation of Holy Cross. Jenkins needs to resign immediately. So should Bishop Daniel Jenky, CSC of Peoria, Illinois, a member of the ND Board of Fellows, the 12 member group that actually governs ND. As a Fellow, he was complicit in this.
As far as the police are concerned, these are members of the godless goon squad known as the Notre Dame Security Police, or “NDSP”. These jokers generally don’t act on their own but take their marching orders from upstairs, such as the University’s general counsel Marianne Coor.
What is ironic and maddening about this is that, near the University Bookstore, which sells millions of dollars of ND branded merchandise every year in addition to books and school supplies, there is a statue of St. Andre Bessette, the CSC brother from Montreal who was a paragon of hospitality and friendship for travelers and pilgrims. Jenkins, Coor and the other apparatchiks that run ND are the polar opposite of St. Andre.
I felt that then that priest was in serious violation of Canon Law.
Of course, there were about 100 bishops/cardinals/archbishops that protested the Obama award at Notre Dame because of his ardent support of abortion...
And not one homily will mention this or anything like it this Sunday or any Sunday. Not one parishioner’s incorrect thoughts, beliefs or opinions will be challenged or corrected this Sunday.
Notre Dame has been incongruously homophilic for a while now. Back when I was there in 1986, if my memory serves me correctly, they successfully covered up an incident where a priest affiliated with the Theology department died under suspicious circumstances (murder? suicide?). He had been involved with gay S&M groups in the area. For some reason, local law enforcement didn’t investigate this for very long....
What the Daily Caller article doesn’t say, and in fact intentionally obscures, is that the people staffing the table are not Notre Dame students. While a recognized university student group applied for and received the permit, those staffing the table are not members of that group. University policy does not allow outsiders to hand out stuff on campus, which is why they were ordered to stop doing so.
Pope Francis needs to shut down these institutions one by one until everyone gets in line with correct Catholic teaching. They have become pointless secular institutions.
