    After psychology professor Christine Blasey Ford accused Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of attempting to rape her in high school, news reports have characterized the culture of Georgetown Preparatory School as "booze-soaked," even "misogynistic." Georgetown Prep, Kavanaugh's all-boys school, responded to these characterizations in a powerful statement on Wednesday. The school admitted that teaching young men to live lives of virtue is difficult, but denied the ugly insinuations that Georgetown Prep has fostered a bad culture of drunkenness and sexual assault. "The temptations, and the failings, presented in these stories are not unique to Georgetown Prep. The problems and abuses...

    An independent K-12 Catholic school in the San Francisco Bay Area has removed religious statues from its campus in order to appeal to those of other faiths. Parents and alumni are concerned about San Domenico School's decision to remove a number of statutes and religious icons, especially those of Jesus and Mary, the Marin Independent Journal reported. "Articulating an inclusive foundation appears to mean letting go of San Domenico's 167-year tradition as a Dominican Catholic school and being both afraid and ashamed to celebrate one's heritage and beliefs," wrote parent Shannon Fitzpatrick in an email to school decision makers.

    I was about to dip a nugget in some Chick-fil-A Sauce the other day when I received an urgent message on my phone. “Student Groups Shut Down Chick-fil-A Proposal,” one headline blared. “Catholic University Caves to LGBT Pressure, Rejects Chick-fil-A,” screamed another. A cavalcade of anti-chicken headlines blurted from my phone – but the most succinct came from Food and Wine magazine:  “Fordham University Rejects Chick-fil-A after LGBT Student Concerns.”However incredulous it may have been, the Jesuits had indeed banished the Chick-fil-A cows. As I pondered that reality, I nearly choked on a delicious, hand-spun Chick-fil-A Icedream milkshake topped off with whipped...

    Students at Georgetown University in Washington D.C. are hosting a “self-care” night for those who need to recuperate after the inauguration of President-elect Donald Trump. A Facebook event page for “GUPride Self-Care Night” says the event, hosted by the Georgetown LGBTQ student organization GUPride, will have everything needed to deal with the trauma of a president they don’t support. Stuffed animals, Legos, and juice boxes to comfort those in need. Do you know anyone who suffers from Donald Trump derangement syndrome? Do you avoid talking about Trump in front of them?

[laughter]. I grabbed her by the [bleep] veil, and I’m like don’t you ever [bleep] hit me again you [bleep] sucker!

    The nation’s largest Catholic university told a group of pro-life students that it could not display posters reading “Unborn Lives Matter,” lest they provoke the Black Lives Matter movement. In a letter to the College Republicans, DePaul University president Father Dennis Holtschneider said the posters contained “bigotry” veiled “under the cover of free speech,” the Daily Wire reported. “By our nature, we are committed to developing arguments and exploring important issues that can be steeped in controversy and, oftentimes, emotion,” Mr. Holtschneider said in the letter. “Yet there will be times when some forms of speech challenge our grounding in...

    PARAMUS – Thousands of alumni of Paramus Catholic High School and their friends and family have signed an impassioned open letter to school officials chastising the school for firing a female dean who married a woman. The letter, written to President James P. Vail and school administrators, was issued days after a judge refused to throw out the suit brought against the school by former Dean Kate Drumgoole, who was terminated because she is in a same-sex marriage. It demands the school apologize and enact policies against sex and gender discrimination following the firing of a gay woman who has...

    After seeing teen star Sydney McLaughlin place 5th in her heat in the opening round of the women's 400-meter hurdles at the Olympic Games, many of the close to 1,000 people that jammed themselves into Union Catholic's gym to watch the race began to head for the exits.  For some, the heat inside the gym was beginning to take its toll, but many others left feeling that the 17 year-old McLaughlin, a rising senior at Union Catholic, had probably come up short in her attempt to advance to the semifinal round at Olympic Stadium in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. But not brothers...
