52% of Catholic Campuses with Pro-Homosexual Clubs Study Shows

Catholic colleges with these clubs are listed here

After meticulous examination, TFP Student Action volunteers found pro-homosexual student clubs at 111 Catholic institutions of higher learning.  Of the 211 Catholic universities and colleges listed by Ganley’s Catholic Schools in America, 52 percent appear to sponsor organizations which undermine Catholic morality.

From 2009 to 2012, the number of pro-homosexual clubs operating on Catholic campuses has risen by 7 percent. Research conducted in 2009 found clubs at 45 percent of Catholic colleges.  

Many of these clubs act as platforms of dissent.  They sponsor sinful events and promote ideas that advance the homosexual movement’s most radical agenda:  same-sex “marriage,” the acceptance of immoral lifestyles, gender confusion, and the rejection of Catholic teaching.

For example:

“These clubs are aggressively pushing to mainstream sin, to pretend sin is something special,” said TFP Student Action Director John Ritchie.  “Never mind academic achievement.  Vice is being celebrated now, not virtue.”

“At the heart of so many famous Catholic universities, a real dictatorship of ‘tolerance’ is sidelining the truth, throwing 2,000 years of Catholic teaching right out the window,” he continued.  “More and more students are confronted with visible, active and well-funded pro-homosexual clubs that openly contradict natural law and undermine good moral values.”

“As the culture war intensifies, it’s vital to stop the sexual revolution from misleading more souls,” Ritchie remarked.  “What will happen if non-negotiable moral values continue to be surrendered to the culture of death on Catholic campuses?  Without moral values, what’s the difference between Berkeley and Georgetown?  Like Our Lord asked:  What is salt worth if it has lost its savor?”

Over 24,000 students and concerned parents have already signed a protest petition drafted by TFP Student Action, urging Catholic university presidents to disband pro-homosexual clubs within their institutions.  The goal of the petition is to also encourage students to stand strong on moral values and fight the trend of indifference and inaction.  Everyone is invited to sign the petition.

TFP Student Action has no intention to defame or disparage anyone with this campaign. We do not harbor personal hatred against any individual. By intellectually opposing individuals or organizations promoting the homosexual agenda, our only intent is to defend marriage, the family, Catholic education, and the precious remnants of Christian civilization in society.

In his address to Catholic educators at the Catholic University of America in April 2008, Pope Benedict XVI said:

“Teachers and administrators, whether in universities or schools, have the duty and privilege to ensure that students receive instruction in Catholic doctrine and practice. This requires that public witness to the way of Christ, as found in the Gospel and upheld by the Church's Magisterium, shapes all aspects of an institution's life, both inside and outside the classroom. Divergence from this vision weakens Catholic identity and, far from advancing freedom, inevitably leads to confusion, whether moral, intellectual or spiritual.”

TFP Student Action hopes to collect 50,000 petitions before Christmas.

Our student guide at Boston College said during our tour, “at BC, it doesn’t matter what you believe in, just so you believe in it passionately.”
The problem is not the formation of these clubs, it’s the admissions process.

I passionately believe there will be a new football coach at BC next but still no Knights of Columbus Council.

Because of the bishops.

But don’t worry—the bishops will NEVER give in to the HHS Abortion Mandate!

Anyone considering sending their children to any of these 52% of Catholic colleges needs to read this carefully. Even well brought up children can become influenced in their late teen and early twenties by peer pressure and "counselors".

There would be nothing wrong in support for people with homosexual attraction, who need help in wading through their passions. These, however, exist, it seems chiefly as a gay lifestyle promotional tools and dating clubs.

Interesting that the society that is ready with lynching ropes at every sin of child molestation by clergy tolerates the systematic corruption machines such as these, that the Left sets up.
