Victory at USF...sort of

Yesterday, I published a post about abortion being written into the health coverage at the University of San Francisco. Apparently the heat from the exposure put enough pressure on the school that they sent out a message saying they were altering the health plan to delete abortion coverage. That's good. But then comes "the rest of the story." Kathleen Gilbert writing at LifeSiteNews reports that "a contributing editor with Our Sunday Visitor has just revealed that the University's health clinic refers students seeking abortion to Planned Parenthood and other abortion providers." So the battle continues to rage at a "Catholic" school that is committed to and fully cooperates with the murder of unborn children if that's what their students want.

If you look at the USF home page, the photo at the top shows a campus building in a bizarre shot tilting almost 45 degrees to the left. What a subliminal message and an accurate one as well. USF doesn't stand upright for Catholic truth, but tilts to the radical left. Any student who goes there can expect to come out with off-balance views not Catholic ones. Parents, be warned! If you value your faith don't send your kids to USF or any other Jesuit school of higher education.

By all means write another letter to university president:
Stephen Privett, S.J.
Office of the President
LMR 415
2130 Fulton St.
San Francisco, CA 94117
phone: 415 422-6762
e-mail: privett@usfca.edu

Then send a copy of your correspondence with a cover letter to both the apostolic nuncio:
Most Rev. Pietro Sambi
Apostolic Nuncio
3339 Massachusetts Ave., NW
Washington, D.C.

and also to the Vatican Congregation for Catholic Education:
Cardinal Zenon Grocholewski
Prefect, Congregation for Education
Palazzo della Congregazioni,
Piazza Pio XII, 3
00121
Vatican City, Europe

Pray that schools like USF will either return to the Catholic Church or will close. This debacle brings to mind Archbishop Fulton Sheen's advice to parents to send their children to secular schools where they will have to fight for the faith rather than to Catholic schools where their faith will be taken from them. As for the scandalizers -- it's millstone time. Have you ever seen a millstone? Big ones wait inscribed with the names of USF staff who rob young people of whatever weak faith they have when they enter college. Most young people have been so poorly catechized that are easy to decieve. God help you, Fr. Privett, on judgment day, for being at the helm, not of a Catholic lifeboat attached to the barque of Peter, but a leaky boat with oarsmen busy drilling holes in its bottom.
