Skip to comments.Black Mass Relocated Off Campus Amid Uproar [Harvard]
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 Queens 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 didn’t see this posted. My apologies if its a duplicate.
Dear Admin Moderator,
Could you add in brackets to the title [Harvard] for clarity?
I’ll be darned——nice to hear.
I think most FReepers already know where this is taking place. JMO
I’m surprised that Harvard didn’t ask them to move it to Yale.

They were going to sacrifice a virgin but couldn’t find one at Harvard.
Every once in awhile, the interwebs proves itself socially valuable.
We won one. This I guess this happens to liberals too just like conservatives with Ms. Rice at Rutgers. Both groups can’t win em all.
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.
I wonder how much funding that club gets?
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.
Mephistopheles is not your name... but i know what you're up to just the same...
They must have found a way to link it to the Young Republicans.
I’m still laughing!!!
i am shocked Harvard is not offended by the name Black Mass... can't they see it's racial???
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.
I actually meant to ping to this thread, LOL.
Thanks for the title addition.
Black mass is racist.
Thank you for informing us.
I see the link defines Hillary Clinton, although they forgot to post her photo by the word, faustian.
We won one?
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?
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.
Thanks, my friend, for the ping(s).
Another thing is there should not be bars on campus
You know the answer. Any attempt to do a satanic islamic service would be shut down immediately and nary a word would be said about free speech.
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.
Where is the NAACP and Al Sharpton et al when you need them.
That is a way to be pessimistic about Jesus Christ.

Freep-mail me to get on or off my pro-life and Catholic List:
Please ping me to note-worthy Pro-Life or Catholic threads, or other threads of general interest.
Speech is only protected if it’s against Christianity and Judaism. They would never allow anyone to say anything bad about Islam.
Thanks for the ping. Glad to hear that this nasty little hate group has been prompted to move their filthy ritual away from the campus.
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.
The Inca tribe had the same problem. Or was it the Mayans? Laz gets there first.
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.
The Mass is canceled, per Drudge!
Maybe they all wanted to watch the Bruins.
See 45. Meant to ping you!
More likely they live on cowardice basically, and thanks be to God for it. Thx.
On the eve of the first sighting of the Blessed Mother at Fatima.
That was some kind of wonderful prayer, btw!
Also... I meant to say they canceled the desecration and not they canceled the Mass.
