Tell Belmont Abbey College: "I'm proud of you!"
Help this faithful college resist the culture of death by signing an instant e-card:
"I’m proud of you!"
Notre Dame betrayed its Catholic identity, but Belmont Abbey College stayed faithful and now needs our urgent prayers and encouragement.
Please let me explain: This small liberal arts college in North Carolina with 1,600 students is holding firm to its Catholic identity by refusing to pay for abortion, contraception and sterilization in its healthcare plan.
As a result, this brave college is now facing persecution. In fact, the federal Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) stepped in and said Belmont Abbey’s policy is "discriminatory."
Thank God, the college did not cave in, but is defending itself with the help of The Becket Fund for Religious Liberty law firm.
Belmont Abbey president Dr. William Thierfelder said the college is "so resolute in our commitment to the teachings of the Catholic Church that there is no possible way we would ever deviate from it, and if it came down to it... we would close the school rather than give in..."
Will you help me encourage Belmont Abbey to stand strong?
Send your instant e-card: "I’m proud of you!"
It's very important that Belmont Abbey receive your message of moral support at this time of great need because it will encourage them to do what is right.
You don't need to be a student to sign the e-card. Everyone can sign it, the more the merrier.
To make this effort a huge success, please forward this email to all your friends who oppose abortion and the culture of death.
I am sure God will reward you for defending moral values.
It only takes a few seconds to sign the e-card: "I’m proud of you!"
Thank you. With best regards and prayers, your friend,

If we had ten men like that...or every college president held their ground like that...the days of Obamas receiving honorary doctorates at Notre Dame would come to an end.
Well said. If we had ten...

(B.O. Stinks...it really does)
Good place and showdown for drawing a line in the sand.
To roll back the goofy liberal modernism, heresy, dissent, apostasy,
and betrayal of the Land O'Lakes nonsense gutting our colleges and universities,
denudating them of genuine Catholic identity, culture, and loyal orthodox faculty.
It's an outrageous scandal what the fruitcakes, heretics, and anti-Catholic secret
societies have done to places like Notre Dame and Georgetown. Worse that
Rome does so little to reverse these trends and allows the faithful to be shamed
and scandalized OVER and OVER again.
Two of my brothers graduated from Belmont Abbey College. Been there a couple of times myself. It just outside of Charlotte. Damn good school.
