Skip to comments.Notre Dame won't recognize 'traditional marriage' student club
Posted on 05/20/2014 1:29:43 PM PDT by topher
A student group at the University of Notre Dame advocating traditional marriage has been denied official recognition as a campus club at the iconic Catholic institution, although members vow to appeal the decision.
The group, Students for Child-Oriented Policy (SCOP), was rejected in an April 30 letter from the universitys Student Activities Office to Tiernan Kane, the clubs proposed president. The decision was based on a recommendation by the universitys Club Coordination Council, a division of student government, that found the clubs mission closely mirrored that of other undergraduate student clubs at the 12,000-student university.

A student organization was not allowed to be formed whose focus was 'traditional marriage'.
Right is wrong, up is down, left is right. As it was in the days of Noah.
I bet if there was a club promoting having sex with children that would have totally been allowed..what the hell has happened to our country..every single day I Hear about gay marriage ban being declared unconstitutional in one state after another..this is what the left wants, the total destruction of marriage as we all know it
Amazing how far we have fallen.
A supposedly Catholic university, disallows a group devoted to traditional marriage. The Catholic Church only allows traditional marriage. Regardless what happens with the debate on homosexual marriage in our civil laws, Catholic doctrine will still only recognize traditional marriage.
So, we have a situation in which students attending a Catholic university are not allowed to have an organization devoted to upholding a part of Catholic doctrine.
Did anyone ever think they would live to see the day???
Just as every cop is a criminal
And all the sinners saints.
As heads is tails, just call me 'Lucifer'
'Cause I'm in need of some restraint.
So if you meet me, have some courtesy,
some sympathy, and some taste.
Use all your well-learned politesse
or I'll lay your soul to waste.
That place sure has changed. “Notre Demon” seems more appropriate now.
There is some support being given to this group -- as FoxNews, Drudgereport, and others, are giving this story attention.
The Facebook page for this group currently has one member showing a Texas Longhorn football helmet as his photo.
I imagine this is meant as an insult to Notre Dame football, which is what Notre Dame is known for.
At one time, before Vatican II, I imagine it was a very conservative, Catholic institution.
Over the years, things like football have taken the spotlight, not God...
They should change their name to Notre Damned.
And we wonder why college students come out socialist. The entire student government is based on a system which only purpose is to spend other people's money. Officers are elected by running around campus promising to support and doll out as much money as possible.
There is a big push to make gay ‘marriage’ normal. What’s sick is that is being helped by a branch of the Catholic church.
The cess pool is getting bigger and deeper and it will consume this country and that will end the US as it once was. We are not the world leader anymore.
The fact that a Student Council denied the application tells you a lot about the student body. Notre Dame = CINO (Catholic In Name Only)- just like Georgetown.
I hope none of our tax money is going directly to that university, as distinguished to students voluntarily choosing to attend.
Catholic alumni should immediately withdraw their support and contributions.
Private universities, like ND, don’t have to recognize the first amendment on campus or with student groups or faculty.
State universities should be a different matter.
