October 17 - 19, 2003
Fordham University School of Law
New York, New York

Every year, the sharpest legal minds in the LGBT community gather at Lavender Law, the annual conference of the National Lesbian and Gay Law Association (NLGLA) and the National Lesbian and Gay Law Foundation (NLGLF). More than 500 practicing attorneys and law professors and 200 law students are expected to attend Lavender Law 2003 in New York City, October 17-19, at Fordham University School of Law, 140 W. 62nd St., in Lincoln Center.

This year's conference features dozens of panels, symposia, courses, and full plenary sessions on cutting-edge legal issues affecting LGBT individuals and the community.

The Lavender Law Programming Committee has invited the country's leading lawyers to head discussions and strategy sessions on practical litigation skills, sodomy law developments, will drafting and estate planning, employment discrimination, workplace diversity, domestic violence, transgender issues, career development, LGBT in academia, civil rights, HIV and AIDS, immigration law, the military, legislation updates, family law, LGBT youth and much more!

Numerous opportunities for Continuing Legal Education (CLE) credits are available at Lavender Law. Most sessions are CLE-eligible, and accreditation will be requested from all states which require continuing legal education.

Lavender Law features a Career Fair, an exciting opportunity for conference participants to network and obtain jobs as attorneys and summer associates/interns with employers from all over the country.

Law students who attend Lavender Law depend on the generosity of our sponsors and attendees to make the cost affordable. Please consider giving a tax-deductible contribution to the National Lesbian and Gay Law Foundation to help continue this tradition.

Lavender Law printed materials may be purchased for $100 by those who cannot attend the conference. A CD-ROM of the materials will also be available.

Co-sponsors of Lavender Law 2003 include Brooklyn Law School, Columbia University School of Law, Fordham University School of Law, Hofstra University School of Law, New York Law School, New York University School of Law, and the New York County Lawyer's Association.

Would it do any good to complain about this? Are there any Catholics left at Fordham? Does Bishop Eagan care?

The Bishop may not know about it yet, but I think things will change about that right now.

I'll pass it on to some NYC freepers, Catholics and otherwise, it may be a good place to do a FREEP if the Chapter leaders decide it's feasable.

We could start an e mail FREEP right now.

The smoke of Satan has entered Fordham too, I see.

The Jesuits have gone from being God's shock troops on earth, to cannon fodder in the employ of the devil. So sad to see.

The total collapse of anything resembling "moral authority" has happened in the American Church. Two of three hierarchs have either committed sexual crimes or covered them up in a fashion that has to be called criminally culpable. Now this, together with the odius sex ed curriculum used in too many "catholic" schools. I wonder, where is the self proclaimed Deacon from Dallas on this one?

** The smoke of Satan has entered Fordham too, I see. **

I think it entered quite some time ago. When my daughter was checking out religious orders, the Daughters of St. Paul promised her an education at Fordham.
For my daughter, that was a big red flag.

Do you suppose the Holy See is concerned, about the transgressions of this wayward order of priests?

A polished practitioner of 'lamenting with a wink-n'-nod' will now have another reason to issue a most profound encyclical focusing on the collapse of moral values within Roman Catholic institutions of higher learning.

All puff; no push; with a touch of pious pretend to top it off.

May Almighty God strike down His enemies within His Church, and establish Holy Orders of priests acting according to His will.

Bishop Eagan knows. He does not care. It would be politically incorrect to get involved and he has the courage of a bishop(none).

That is Edward Cardinal Eagan. He has no jurisdiction over Fordham because the Jesuits are subject only to their superior general (Hans Pieter Kolvenbach, a verrrrry bad guy) in Rome at the Gesu and to the pope. The pope is busy as a one-armed paperhanger with this stuff and is no physically up to combat with the Jebbies any more. Eagan, however, is not silenced regarding the Jesuits and certainly ought to apply a verbal flamethrower to Fordham for these scandalous doings. If the next pope is young, healthy, orthodox and determined, the Jesuits will finally be dealt with and Kolvenbach will be exiled and the order will comply or be punished or even suppressed.

Fordham Rose Hill Class of '97 here.

There were few Catholics at Fordham back then, especially among the Jesuits.

The local bishop has control over any organization that is "Catholic" in his diocese, whether it's a hospital, school, college, etc. Every priest, including religious, in His diocese MUST report to and obey the local church authority, the bishop.

Wheeling Jesuit University, in 2000, had Janet Reno as their commencement speaker. I don't think ANY Jesuit college in the U.S. has failed to invite pro-aborts for honorary degrees and as commencement speakers. This fact alone should have resulted in the suppression of the Society of Jesus years ago. They have become a pro-abortion organization, plain and simple. The good-ol'-boys who have appointed each other as superiors and provincials, and who have well-documented, public records as promoters of abortion, should be laicized, and the good, Catholic Jesuits should be allowed to reorganize the Society.

Unless something has drastically changed since I graduated a Jesuit prep school in the mid-1960s, the Jesuits are exempt from control by local bishops. It might be necessary for them to obtain the approval of the local ordinary and a mandatum to call themselves theologians within his diocese inder Ex Corde Ecclesiae but that is it. I also believe that Opus Dei has similar exemption. Both are "personal prelatures of the papacy."

Narses,you know I agree with you on most things Catholic and appreciate your posts. But I think you are exaggerating the number of bad bishops and it's time we start figuring out what defines a bad bishop and how many they are and who they are. Painting all bishops with the same brush is even more harmful than denying that the problem exists.

I would except from my list any bishops that I am not sure about,this would start the beginnings of a list that is composed of the evil shepherds. Moving priests around once they committed a legitimate,defined crime or sin more than once is a sign,withholding info about the types of abuse that is occurring is another,ordaining clearly homosexual priests is another,not insisting that priests talk about sexual sins including active homosexuality,once a year is another.The kind of catechesis they offer should be rviewed,the liturgical license they permit is another,the lack of indults,removing the altar rails,desacralizing the churches and on and on.All of these abuses go hand in hand with the planned destruction of the Catholic Church from within.

It is very wrong to hold a bishop accountible for protecting priests when it surfaces long after the fact that a predessessor bishop had "taken"care of it.Anew bishop would be at the mercy of the chancery staff if he came in,asked if there were any problem priests and was told there were no problems only to be told at a much later date that there had been. If we want to clean up the Church we must be very careful with the statements we throw out as True.I think the number of bad bishops is much closer to ten to fifteen per cent.We have got to start developing a factual profile or we may destroy the good and be left with nothing but the ilk of the bad ones like Mahoney and Pilarchyc,Clark and Imesch and Pilla and Hubbard and Lynch and the rest of the evil ones.If I am wrong about any that I have named please let me know contrary information,I only look at a complex of symptoms since I can't know the mind of the bishop. But I do suspect if they don't think with the mind of the Church they are worthless.

Thanks for the ping Coleus. I didn't bother to check this thread, and then found, thanks to your ping, that it pertained to Catholic higher education.

Expect to hear from the Newman Society and the ASCC, in short time, on this one.

On the brighter side, perhaps it would be good to know that the Eucharistic Adoration movement on college campuses is now "coming out".

Eucharisitic Adoration Initiative

Regarding your comment regarding developing a factual profile -- my take would be something like this:

- Do they cause confussion by either directly supporting or supporting by their absense of comment those public individuals or organizations that promote ideas which are opposed to Catholic teaching?

- Do they offer means for more traditional Catholics or those Catholics seeking a more sacred form of worship opportunities to express themselves?

- Are their seminary graduating classes decreasing in number of graduates?

Feel free to add to the list but I think it should be a short list of key "tests".

In the 70's the Catholic church was criticized for being too "remote" from American culture. They now reflect the people - at least, as defined by the squeaky wheels of American culture. As a result, compromised morality in church members & leaders.

Why would Egan care? He is a notorious homosexual Roman bureaucrat who was made Archbishop of New York just to get him out of Rome, where the police had caught him in a parked car at night in a park with a comely young man. As someone once said, the corruption is like 15 minutes before the fall of the Roman Empire.

The memory of one passage in the book lingers.

It concerns Father Francis Carney's leaving the Jesuits to pursue guerilla warfare in the jungles of Honduras, never to be heard from again.

After a price had been put on his head by the Honduran Gov't, and his safety assured he crept back into Honduras to become part of the solution, and before doing so, wrote to his family in Chicago bidding them goodbye, and telling them he could not stand to live as they lived any longer.

As Fr. Malachi points out, if he couldn't keep to the strictures issued the Pope's Men, he certainly was at least honest enough to not want to bring further disrepute on the Society, so he turned in his badge. After I finished reading that passage, I was left with an ineffable sense of sadness for Fr. Carney, and most of all for the Society.
