  • Georgetown Prep: media portrayal of school culture not close to reality

    The Hill ^ | 09/26/18 | Megan Keller
    Georgetown Preparatory School, Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh's high school, decried how it has been portrayed in recent media accounts about sexual misconduct allegations surrounding Kavanaugh. In a statement, the private school said its community was "being disparaged" and said the portrayals in the media were inaccurate, while also criticizing some media outlets for publishing stories without seeking comment from the school. "The image that has been presented on social media and in various news outlets depicts recklessness, illegal conduct, and lack of respect for persons. Worse, many blame these faults on institutional indifference," Georgetown Prep said in its statement....
  • Jesuit magazine demonstrates a special kind of cowardice on Kavanaugh

    American Thinker ^ | 09/29/2017 | Monica Showalter
    Here we have it: Brett Kavanaugh, product of a Jesuit education, academic overachiever, fine young man, Supreme Court nominee – and suddenly bad stuff to the Jesuits' main magazine based on a single unsubstantiated accusation from a leftist.  So that's why America magazine is now disavowing him.  Take a look at the pious overload: Evaluating the credibility of these competing accounts is a question about which people of good will can and do disagree.  The editors of this review have no special insight into who is telling the truth.  If Dr. Blasey's allegation is true, the assault and Judge Kavanaugh's denial of it mean...

    Breitbart ^ | Thomas D. Williams, Ph.D.
    In a bracing October essay titled Catholicism After 2018, First Things editor Rusty Reno pinpoints an acceptance of a homosexual subculture in the Catholic clergy as the core issue underlying recent sex abuse scandals assailing the Catholic Church. *snip* Reno, who taught at a Jesuit University from 1990 until 2010, said that Jesuit novice masters during the 1970s regarded homosexual relations as healthy, even necessary for proper priestly formation. Sometimes the novice masters insisted that they be the agents of this formation, he said.
  • Brett Kavanaugh has been nominated. Whats the future of Roe vs. Wade?

    "America" - Jesuit magazine ^ | July 09, 2018 | The Editors
    President Trumps nomination of D.C. circuit court Judge Brett Kavanaugh to fill the seat on the United States Supreme Court vacated by Justice Anthony Kennedy may furnish the fifth vote needed to overrule Roe v. Wade, the 1973 landmark ruling that legalized abortion in every jurisdiction of the United States. Judge Kavanaugh is a textualist who is suspicious of the kind of judicial innovation that led to the courts ruling in Roe. That decision removed a matter of grave moral concernabout which there was and remains no public moral consensusfrom the democratic process. Reversing Roe will not make abortion...

    The theology program at the Jesuit-run College of the Holy Cross has taken on a new tone ever since the school appointed a gender-obsessed Chair of New Testament Studies who claims Jesus was a drag king, a new article contends. Writing for The Fenwick Review, Elinor Reilly of the Holy Cross class of 2018 argues in a March 26 article that Professor Tat-Siong Benny Liews unconventional readings of Scripture have brought a new theological perspective to Holy Cross.

    WND ^ | Bob Unruh
    A Jesuit scholar with expertise in Islam is explaining why Muslims are terroristic and is warning members of his faith not to be taken in by the liberal-left ideology that advocates tolerance and concessions. The verdict and warning comes from Egyptian Greek Melkite Jesuit Father Henri Boulad, who was interviewed by the National Catholic Register. First, the reason for the terrorism is simple, said Boulad, 85, whose relative, Father Samir Khalil Samir, also is a Jesuit scholar of Islam. The Quran orders Muslims to inflict terror. *snip* The church should not defend Islam at all costs and seek to exonerate...

    An apology from Georgetown and the Society of Jesus Maryland Province for their roles in the 1838 sale of 272 enslaved individuals for the universitys benefit took place today in the company of more than 100 descendants. Today the Society of Jesus, who helped to establish Georgetown University and whose leaders enslaved and mercilessly sold your ancestors, stands before you to say that we have greatly sinned, said Rev. Timothy Kesicki, S.J., president of the Jesuit Conference of Canada and the United States, during a morning Liturgy of Remembrance, Contrition, and Hope. We pray with you today because we have...

    Amoris Laetitia opens a new door that goes beyond Familiaris Consortio and does away with unnecessarily harsh requirements from the Catholic Church with regard to chastity, according to a recent presentation on the Apostolic Exhortation by Bishop Marcello Semeraro in Spain. Semeraro spoke at the Jesuit University of Comillas in Madrid at the presentation of a new edition of Amoris Laetitia in Spanish with an introduction he wrote. The university rector, Cardinal Llus Martnez Sistach, who is the Archbishop Emeritus of Barcelona, as well as Jesuits Pablo Guerrero and Carmen Magalln, both professors at the university, were also present. Semeraro...

    The following is from an article published in the September 2016 edition of Central California Catholic Life by Fr. Jim Rude, SJ, Co-Editor: I’m getting to be an old man, brushing the mid eighties, and I find that in these past few years, I have been doing a lot
 of reminiscing, thinking of people, places, events. I remember the theology we were taught in the early days, a theology that was rather simple, and in a way, rather sad. For there was not a great deal of explanation. I went to Mass every Sunday with my family, wouldn’t miss it,...

    Orange County Register ^ | 06-19-2016 | JOEL KOTKIN
    In a state ruled by a former Jesuit, perhaps we should not be shocked to find ourselves in the grip of an incipient state religion. Of course, this religion is not actually Christianity, or even anything close to the dogma of Catholicism, but something that increasingly resembles the former Soviet Union, or present-day Iran and Saudi Arabia, than the supposed world center of free, untrammeled expression. Two pieces of legislation introduced in the Legislature last session, but not yet enacted, show the power of the new religion. One is Senate Bill 1146, which seeks to limit the historically broad exemptions...

    Blasphemy was committed on a Catholic university campus: An employee at the "Catholic" school stated her belief, rooted in Catholicism, that there are only two genders. An unnamed employee at Loyola Marymount University in Los Angeles has been suspended and is currently being investigated for a hate crime by the universitys Bias Incident Response Team and the LAPD for denying transgenderism when she stated that there are only two genders, reports The College Fix. On April 14, the employee engaged in a dialogue with three students who were hanging up posters for Rainbow Week on campus. Cosette Carleo, who identifies...

    Police and school investigating incident as a hate crimeLOS ANGELES (ChurchMilitant.com) - A Los Angeles Jesuit university has fired an employee for telling students there are only two genders male and female. In April, Catholic Loyola Marymount University (LMU) allowed LGBT Student Services (LGBTSS) to hold LGBTQ+ Awareness Week, also known as Rainbow Week. Posters were put up throughout campus, but on April 14 three members of the club noted some were taken down and placed behind a garbage can. They retrieved the posters and put them back up, claiming an unnamed employee of the Alumni Relations office approached...

    "What does the Jesuit master reveal about the Jesuit Bishop of Rome's intention. Are we on the verge of heresy and schism?" Journalists have had unprecedented access to the Pope. It is a disgraceful and utterly contemptible reality that old men with decaying minds from a lifetime of atheism such as Scalfari and Jesuits with burning errors steeped in modernism and heterodoxy are able to communicate that which is in the mind of Jorge Bergoglio better than faithful Catholic media or better still, faithful cardinals and bishops! The Jesuit Vatican spokesman Federico Lombardi tried to walk back the Scalfari report,...

    Some Michigan high school students are redefining the term "extracurricular activity." In addition to club meetings, band practices and football games, University of Detroit Jesuit High School and Academy teens are also signing up to serve as pallbearers for homeless veterans. Six students recently volunteered to be pallbearers for three dead homeless veterans. Senior Joshua Gonzales is one of the student leaders who helped develop the program. He said this new opportunity for students is "meant to help dignify and respect the human being." The students' initial plan was to carry the caskets for homeless individuals, said the Rev. Karl...

    A law professor at Jesuit-run Fordham University in New York is appealing for an end to the institution of marriage in America, which he describes as religious, gendered, and bourgeois. Ethan J. Leib published his essay in the Fordham Law Review. The article, titled Hail Marriage and Farewell, says Leib was elated when the U.S. Supreme Court made same-sex marriage the law of the land on June 26, 2015, a ruling he described as a victory for rights, for open-mindedness, for love, and for the future. The decision, in fact, made him feel, at least for a moment, as if...

    The Episcopalian marriage of Fordham University’s theology chairman to his same-sex partner, just one day after the Supreme Court’s marriage ruling, begins a new flood of challenges to Catholic identity that most Catholic colleges and universities are unprepared to face, warns Cardinal Newman Society President Patrick Reilly.“Even if a Catholic college leader wants to uphold Catholic teaching on marriage, the persistent embrace of dissent and opposition to the Church at many Catholic universities makes it highly unlikely that the law will now permit them to uphold moral standards for professors,” Reilly said.“The fact that a theology chairman at a...

    The chairman of the theology department at Fordham University has gotten marriedto another man. The New York Times, which up until a few years ago, declined running wedding announcements involving same-sex couples, reported that J. Patrick Hornbeck II married Patrick Anthony Bergquist Saturday at St. Bartholomews Episcopal Church in Manhattan. The ceremony took place June 27, just a day after the US Supreme Court legalized same-sex marriage nationwide. That would not have been necessary legally, since New York State has allowed gay "marriage" since 2011. But the ceremony was conducted before the Episcopal Church in America voted this week...

    Who knew that the Society of Jesus, aka the Jesuits, was the go-to religious order for gay men wanting to become priests? In a damaging indictment of the congregational order to which Pope Francis belongs, ex-Jesuit seminarian Ben Brenkert claims that the elitist organization covers up the activities of its homosexual priests. He also avers the official teachings of the Catholic Church are dead wrong on the topic. In the Daily Beast, Brenkert writes: But I saw homosexuality and Catholicism in the most holistic way, and I put my needs for self-preservation last because I wanted to make a difference...
