He'll need a legion of bulldozers and some dynamite over at Georgetown University.

Georgetown is not as bad as you think.

My daughter is finishing her sophomore year at Georgetown this week. I've spent a lot of time at Georgetown over the last two years. Georgetown definitely has a Catholic identity, even with the Jesuit influence.

The problem is that Georgetown has to coexist with the Washington Catholic establishment. Both Nancy Pelosi and her husband are on the Georgetown Board of Trustees. See the problem.

There are a surprising number of Georgetown students who are faithful, practicing Catholics and they aren't really discouraged by Georgetown in following a Catholic life.

Pardon me, but I strongly disagree. Let’s start with GU’s Saudi-funded Center for Muslim-Christian Understanding, whose director is the guy who brought that muslim broadcaster to New York who subsequently beheaded his wife right here in the USA. Then there’s the GU “Sex Positive” week. If you don’t know, look it up. And don’t get me started on the graduation speakers, including the walk-outs on same by the lesfem faculty in the middle of graduation if the speaker got too Christian for their tastes. And how about the “sexiling” in the co-ed dorms?
