Georgetown student group targeted as 'hate group' for Catholic beliefs, could be sanctioned

A Catholic student group at Georgetown University could be stripped of its funding for its belief in traditional marriage.

Love Saxa, a group that advocates for marriage between a man and a woman, is under fire from LGBTQ groups on campus, PRIDE and Queer People of Color, according to The Hoya, Georgetown’s student publication. A pro-choice student senator filed a notice on September 25, arguing Love Saxa’s definition of marriage and relationships violates university standards by fostering hatred or intolerance.

The notice, which would identify Love Saxa as a hate group, could strip Love Saxa of its funding and bar it from using campus facilities. The group receives $250 a year from the Georgetown, which is the country’s oldest Catholic university.

Love Saxa petitioned for a delay because it was not given enough time to defend itself and had not seen the notice, according to the Catholic News Agency. A hearing, originally set for Monday, is now scheduled for Oct. 30.

The controversy began last month, when the president of Love Saxa, Amelia Irvine, published an op-ed titled “Confessions of a College Virgin” in The Hoya, talking about abstinence before marriage and the group’s definition of marriage.

"Catholic" Georgetown has been a distant memory for many, many years.

The world has gone mad. It’s insane and upside down in some ways.

A supposedly Catholic University, is going to ban a Catholic group which believes in the Catholic definition of marriage??? Is this correct??? Am I missing something?? And this is ok and expressly approved by officials of this so called Catholic University??

Anyone else stunned at this and the implications for other issues which make come up?

This insanity has to stop. Give them an inch and they want a mile. First it was ‘gay marriage’ and soon after it was the transgender and bathroom crap. Now if someone or some group expresses their belief system they’re a hate group. We have to fight this.

I know. This kind of amazed me. I was born in DC, grew up in the suburbs. I’m not Catholic, but we always assumed certain things about CUA and Georgetown as holdouts for traditional values.

I guess I’m old; and now *everything* is politics...

That we allow certain groups to carry more weight in their opinions and muzzle is a disgrace to free opinion and and free speech.

Comcast NBC has been publishing a regular nightly ad promoting “equality forum” which is anything but equality because it is about only LGTB values, not equality of all.

Those at point pushing this on average Americans are consistently members of the Hollywood trash crowd like Weinstein, etc.

As a Catholic, can I get my money back? Reparations for current abuses!!!

Designating Christian beliefs as "hate" has been a goal of the left since this "we just wan't to be free to love who we love".

No one was stopping them. Their goal was to get their ridiculous and antibiological beliefs & lifestyles accept as "normal". Now anyone or anything that challenges or questions them, is a bigot, racist, hateful, blahblahblah.

I'm not a Christian but I will stand with Christians.

In Georgetown’s case, they took Saudi money about 20 years ago and it has been straight downhill ever since.

Is there an Islamic student group on campus, and do they support gay marriage?

Notre Dame is not Jesuit. It’s Holy Cross Fathers (CSC).

Georgetown is where the cross was covered.

Notre Dame is where it was desecrated by being utilized as a political prop.
