Well, they canceled the porn flick at the University of Maryland, but X-rated behavior is welcome on many a Catholic campus. Today is the last day of Xavier University's "Queer Week" and same-sex hand-holding day. I am tempted to laugh in disbelief because what does the administration think these folks do after they've moved from hand-holding to the more intimate stages of their perverted relationships? Have they never heard of "fisting?" The capacity for denial among liberal professors and their administrations is unlimited. No doubt fornication week is next; after all, shoudn't schools offer equality in sexual sin?
But I'm behind the times. Georgetown already thought of that. In February they held their "Sex Positive Week" which, according to the Cardinal Newman Society, "included talks celebrating extra-marital sex and pornography. One talk was given by a director of pornographic films." Ah yes, what all discerning students need to know. This month G-town moved on to promoting abortion, attacking crisis pregnancy centers, and offering a propaganda lecture on how one can be both religious and pro-choice. (Can these students spell "pharisees" or "hypocrisy?" How about their professors?) Meanwhile the statue of Our Lady of Fatima on campus has been desecrated for the second time in less than a month. Any surprise? So far the administration's response is described as "tepid." It would not surprise me if they simply removed the statue. After all, there's nothing much Catholic about Georgetown these days and it's such a nuisance to have to clean the statue.
Please pray the rosary in atonement for the desecration. Even better make the five first Saturdays which include a specific atonement for insults to Our Lady by desecration of her images.
(NB: Note the irony of this article about the first Saturdays coming from Notre Dame's website. What could be more a desecration of the Mother of God than to invite a man who champions the destruction, not of statues, but the living image of God in His tiny infants. While you're praying the rosary, don't forget to offer it as well for Notre Dame.)
One snippet of good news. Notre Dame students are organizing a prayer rally on Palm Sunday to protest the invitation to President Obama to speak at commencement. The prayer rally will take place in front of the campus Main Building on April 5 at 2:00 p.m. Central Time after the noon Palm Sunday Mass at Notre Dame’s Basilica of the Sacred Heart. Events in the rally include: invocation, address by the ND Response Chairman, keynote speaker, Rosary, announcements, and a bringing flowers to the Grotto of Our Lady of Lourdes. The students are inviting “all those who share our concerns to support our efforts by joining in this respectful display." The Cardinal Newman Society is asking their supporters and those who signed their petition to the university to support the students by attending the rally or praying a rosary of reparation.
