Got that, Georgetown?

Got that, Notre Dame?

Got that, Bishops? Then step in and follow the Pope’s instructions!

I attended Georgetown and go back for a visit occasionally

I’m convinced that no one there really cares any longer what the Vatican thinks, at least as long as they can pick and choose among doctrine that suites their ideology.

They may have a few individual Profs or Jesuits who are steadfast, but they are solitary and do not effect policy. I also believe that a majority of their administration actually welcome a battle with the Bishops, as it will help them burnish their liberal/leftist bona fides at DC cocktail parties. I submit as evidence the condescending and didactic letter sent to Paul Ryan recently by a large number of the Woodstock Theological Center staff.

Like most universities, GU has sold its soul to secular modernism, and for GU in particular, a Catholic identity can not compete with the lure of being the premier elitist university located in the capital of the empire.
