Students Want Anti-Gay Priest Removed from University
http://radio.foxnews.com/ ^ | 04/05/2013 | Todd Starnes

Posted on 04/05/2013 6:34:56 AM PDT by massmike

Religious liberty groups are mobilizing to defend the chaplain of George Washington University’s Newman Center after gay students launched an effort to have the priest fired because he preaches against homosexuality and abortion.

“It’s discrimination against Catholics,” said Patrick Reilly, president of the Cardinal Newman Society. “Secular colleges are fast becoming a very unsafe place for Catholics who hold true to their faith. This is a very, very sad situation.”

Damian Legacy and Blake Bergen said they want the university’s Office for Diversity and Inclusion to investigate the priest and they are calling for the student government association to defund the Newman Center.

“To have my faith leader view me that way, just because of one piece of the way that God made me , and to think that one part is responsible for the destruction of my human dignity, it just didn’t, I can’t even begin to describe the mental conflict that it creates,” Legacy told the newspaper.

The two students also cited academic studies that linked the inability to sleep and loss of appetite with being around homophobic behavior.

Reilly told Fox News that he found the incident “absolutely disturbing.”

“Chastity outside of marriage has been the Catholic church teaching for more than 2,000 years,” he said. “The only discrimination occurring there is trying to silence a priest for trying to teach the Catholic faith.”

Kick out the students, not the priest! Give ‘em something to scream about!

A strong indication that the university evidently has no academic standards - after all, the students quite obviously have nothing to do. And (guessing) - most of those who are “protesting” are “studying” academic majors requiring the IQ of a politician or journalist.

The so called “Office for Diversity and Inclusion” is lovin’ this! Makes them feel like they’ve got a purpose. No “Office” could be more destructive for America. These idiots are shaping the mind set of future “leaders”.

This will not stop...it WILL get worse and millions of people who fraudulently call themselves Americans will stand and applaud as we start jailing people for their faith and religious convictions because they have engineered hatred for people who dare to call something a sin!

Would the gay mafia demand an Islamic Imam be removed from a university for reading from the Koran regarding homosexuals??

I believe we all know the answer.....

I’m reminded of a story about Aloise Hitler renting space for a beer hall from a Jewish landlord. Then Hitler wanted the whole building to hold his little pre-nazi meetings the landlord said no.

The landlord ended up fleeing from Germany in fear for his life.

How dare this priest harbor thoughts and principles the little Nazi Diversity Mongers do not approve of!

They are so blinded by thier leftist brainwashing they can't see what hypocrites they are.
The irony would be side-splitting if it wasn't so frightening.

*************************

Mental conflict? So he is admitting homosexuality is a mental illness. Or it could be his GUILT over knowing what he is doing is wrong. They don’t want to hear the truth so they want to silence it.

Homosexuality is a mental disease and should be treated that way.

I have an alternative headline:

"Pro-gay students want priest removed from university"

Sounds a lot different, huh? Liberals have siezed both the narrative and the semantics.

This is direct and compelling evidence of the slippery slope that WILL occur if same-sex "marriage" is "legalized".

The GAYstapo will see to it that having a different opinion, solely based upon religious belief, will be ILLEGAL.

Initially, it's your job that they'll take. Next it will be fines and penalties. (think of the 0bamacare penalties being charged daily to HobbyLobby for having a religious exception to abortion and contraception). And coming soon ... JAIL, unless you give up your freedom to your deeply held religious beliefs.

Makes me think of the Maccabees who resisted the governmental assault on their religious freedom.

Roger. I got away from my thoughts on that one.

One thing is certain to me now...we have too many people with far too much free time on their hands. Idle hands are the workshop of the devil for sure and every one of these examples is further proof. Rather than protesting for something meaningful like how our economy has been destroyed or how discriminatory taxes have devastated the middle class, they protest the inability to promote their fag agendas.

Good catch - I forgot about that.

They will probably have her on trial before the "Office for Diversity and Inclusion" for being a meanie.

Oh, I think it’s complete now — like a cake just being pulled out of the oven. Next step will be slicing it up and passing it around for everyone to have a taste of this final “product” and what it really means for this country.

I believe it’s more sinister than that.

They want to destroy religion and the religious. They will not be happy until they destroy the church which disagrees with their so-called lifestyle choices. They believe if they remove the opposition their guilt over their choices will disappear and all will be well.
Got news, we win no matter what they do. They can’t destroy God, or His book. No matter what they do, the sin of abomination remains until they repent.

The "Mommy, Daddy and my college tell me that I am special and everything I come into contact with in the world must please or praise me" spoiled brat garbage. These young narcissists truly think they have the right to have anything that they disagree with removed from the range of their senses. In a sane nation, they would be disabused of that notion early on; instead it has been institutionalized at colleges and workplaces with courses and departments focused on fascistic "diversity".

So...the “Office of Diversity and Inclusion” wants to exclude this priest, and does not appreciate the diversity of his views.

"...just because of one piece of the way that God made me"

This fellow apparently gets his identity from his appetites and not from his God.

You don't have a choice of your appetites, but you do, as a rational human being, have a choice of your actions. If I followed all of my food-related inclinations, I'd be dead already by appetite driven behaviors. Everyone is inherently screwed-up one way or another (that's what the ig "Original Sin" concept is all about) and we all face a daily battle between doing the easy thing and doing the right thing.

Everyone needs to restrain disordered desires. As a matter of public policy, an individual who really "can't" control his sexual behavior, shouldn't be allowed out in public without a sheriff's deputy.

Maybe the left should push all Christians who don’t support homosexuality into camps? The behavior being displayed by the “tolerant left” are really starting to scare me.
