Black Mass Relocated Off Campus Amid Uproar [Harvard]
The Harvard Crimson ^ | May 12, 2014 | Theodore R. Delwiche and Alexander H. Patel

Posted on 05/12/2014 2:52:36 PM PDT by sitetest

The Harvard Extension School Cultural Studies Club said it will relocate its reenactment of a Satanic black mass ritual, scheduled for Monday night, to an off-campus site, citing in an email that “misinterpretations about the nature of the event were harming perceptions about Harvard and adversely impacting the student community.”

The club emphasized that Harvard had not asked them to move the event from its previous location, the Cambridge Queen’s Head Pub in the basement of Memorial Hall, and commended the University for affirming its members’ rights to free speech and assembly.

“Harvard always demonstrated that it understood its responsibility to defend protected student speech. That was always made clear to us,” the club wrote in a second email.

I’m surprised that Harvard didn’t ask them to move it to Yale.

Isn’t it amazing what is considered offensive to others, and what isn’t these days.

Doesn’t surprise me a bit that this wasn’t deemed offensive by Harvard.

At this point, I want it to continue on campus. If they go off campus, they can whine about how Christian intolerance won the day. If it continues on campus, a lot of people will see this for what it is — a PR stunt to attack Christians. A lot of people also will see a lot of committed people of faith worshiping as a response (notice I did not say “protest”) to the black mass.

And hopefully a lot of people will think hard about faith and the meaning of Christianity. When you put aside all the superficial talk about Christianity, you see what a beautiful, positive religion it is, and, whether you are “religious” or not, what a great set of guiding principals it can be.

If not Harvard, SOMEONE certainly “suggested” these demons remove their desecration OFF campus.

Wars have been started for as much as this and rightly so.

The Catholics have certainly not “won one”. The desecration is right on schedule. Where it occurs has nothing to do with it for Catholics.

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?

Would 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?

Dear GeronL,

Good question. I noticed immediately that Harvard called this an independent student organization. At Harvard, there are student groups that receive at least some bare support (free room for meetings, etc., use of office equipment, supplies), or even actual funding. But these are actual, officially-recognized student groups. Other organizations are independent of the school and receive no support.

Thus, Harvard Pro-Life is school-supported, but the Harvard Knights of Columbus council is not. Harvard Pro-Life gets free meeting space, has Harvard e-mail, gets to use some minimal level of office stuff, etc. The K of C doesn't.

The Harvard Extension School (which is Harvard's “night school,” so to speak) has a list of official, recognized, supported extension school student groups. The “cultural studies club” is not listed among them.

Furthermore, the “cultural studies club” has no Harvard e-mail, but rather has a gmail address. I have googled extensively and found no previous reference to the “cultural studies club” at Harvard, no meetings, no membership drive, no nothing. My son and his friends at Harvard have never heard of this group.

Finally, they weren't able to book a room on campus for free, but rather had to go to the campus bar and pay for a private rental outside of business hours.

I can't say for sure, but I think the approximate level of support and funding for this group prior to this event was $0. After this event, it will be absolutely $0.

Saul Alinsky’s bible for Today’s Liberals, “Rules for Radicals,” is dedicated to the devil. Why shouldn’t these bums at Haaavaaard put on a black mass? I would sprinkle holy water on them if I could, but Harvard needs a Catholic and a real Exorcist to handle these spawns of the devil.

Speech is only protected if it’s against Christianity and Judaism. They would never allow anyone to say anything bad about Islam.

Free expression is exactly the excuse I would have expected to be used. The problem with that excuse is that this degrading of Christians was pre announced for effect. This means the intention IS to demean a specific group of people.

Catholic Prayer: Litany of Reparation In Honor of the Blessed Sacrament

Lord, have mercy on us; Lord, have mercy on us Christ, have mercy on us; Christ, have mercy on us Lord, have mercy on us; Lord, have mercy on us

God the Father of Mercy, Have mercy on us. God the Son, Mediator between God and man, Have mercy on us. God the Holy Spirit, the Enlightener of hearts, Have mercy on us. Holy and undivided Trinity, Have mercy on us.

O Sacred Host! Victim of reparation for the sins of the world, Have mercy on us. O Sacred Host! Annihilated on the altar for us and by us, Have mercy on us. O Sacred Host! Despised and neglected, Have mercy on us. O Sacred Host! Neglected and abandoned in Your temples, Have mercy on us.

Be merciful unto us: Spare us, O Lord. Be merciful unto us: Hear us, O Lord.

For so many unworthy Communions, We offer You our reparations, O Lord. For the irreverence of Christians, We offer You our reparations, O Lord. For the continual blasphemies of the impious, We offer You our reparations, O Lord. For the infamous discourses made in Your Holy Temples, We offer You our reparations, O Lord. For the crimes of sinners, We offer You our reparations, O Lord. For the sacrileges which profane Your sacrament of love, We offer You our reparations, O Lord. For the coldness of the greater part of Your children, We offer You our reparations, O Lord. For their contempt of Your loving invitations, We offer You our reparations, O Lord. For the infidelity of those who call themselves Your friends, We offer You our reparations, O Lord. For the abuse of Your grace, We offer You our reparations, O Lord. For our unfaithfulness, We offer You our reparations, O Lord. For our delay in loving You, We offer You our reparations, O Lord. For our tepidity in Your Holy Service, We offer You our reparations, O Lord. For Your bitter sadness at the loss of souls, We offer You our reparations, O Lord. For Your long waiting at the door of our hearts, We offer You our reparations, O Lord. For Your loving sighs, We offer You our reparations, O Lord. For Your loving tears, We offer You our reparations, O Lord. For Your loving imprisonment, We offer You our reparations, O Lord. For Your loving death, We offer You our reparations, O Lord.

That You spare us, that You hear us, We sinners beseech You, hear us. That You will make known Your love for us in this most Holy Sacrament, We sinners beseech You, hear us. That You will vouchsafe to accept our reparation, made in the spirit of humility, We sinners beseech You, hear us.

Lamb of God, who takes away the sins of the world: Spare us, O Lord. Lamb of God, who takes away the sins of the world: Hear us, O Lord. Lamb of God, who takes away the sins of the world: Have mercy on us, O Lord.

Let us pray:

Lord Jesus, Who has chosen to expose Yourself to all the outrages of the impious, rather than withdraw Your Sacred Body from our Churches, grant us the grace to bewail, with true bitterness of heart, the injuries and sacrileges committed against you, and to repair as far as lies in our power, and with sincere love, the many ignominies and contempts You have received, and still continue to receive, in this ineffable mystery, Who lives and reigns with God, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, for ever and ever. Amen.

New update, the Black Mass that was taken off campus to a nightclub has now been cancelled.

The Satanic Temple says they will hold their mass in a private location.

Looks like the nightclub came to their senses. The club has now backed out of the event too.
