Georgetown University, which is known for being “Catholic” in name but not at all in practice, just approved housing designated only for “LGBT” students according to a report:
In a startling move for a university that claims to be Catholic, Jesuit-run Georgetown University announced this week that it will offer LGBT-only campus housing.
Perhaps more startling, the university claims the move is based on “Jesuit values.”
Located in the tony Georgetown neighborhood of Washington, GU is about as old as the nation itself. Founded in 1789, the institution boasts a long and illustrious history, which in recent decades has given way to controversy as it has become not only secularized but in some ways anti-Catholic.
The proposal for “‘The “Crossroads: Gender and Sexuality’ Living Learning Community (LLC) was initially rejected by the Office of Residential Life in April,” reports Campus Reform, which broke the story, “but was subsequently approved in December.”
According to the Campus Reform report, associate director of residential education Katie Heather “informed student Grace Smith, a leader of the LLC effort, that her proposal has ‘been approved and accepted for the 2018-2019 academic year.’”
Vice president of student affairs Todd Olson said the LGBT campus housing “will provide a community space for discussion on gender and inclusion while upholding the Jesuit values of community in diversity and educating the whole person.”
“Our Catholic and Jesuit values call on us to engage with ‘respect, compassion, and sensitivity’ with our LGBTQ community,” Olson continued in the Campus Reform report. “It is in keeping with our Catholic and Jesuit values to provide a language, perspective, and sense of inclusion for deepening our sense of cura personalis.”
Grace Smith, head of the student government’s LGBTQ+ Inclusivity Policy Team, said in a Facebook posting that the move is “A REALLY BIG DEAL AT A JESUIT UNIVERSITY.”
“This means that students will now begin to have a unique residential space dedicated to exploring and understanding themselves and others in relation to gender and sexuality,” Smith continued. “Congratulations to everyone who made this dream a reality.”
Authentic Catholicism bullied and squelched at Georgetown U.
In 2014, Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia reportedly said of his alma mater, Georgetown University, that it is “not Catholic anymore.”
Recent history seems to bear that out.
In October, a student group at Georgetown University faced defunding and other possible sanctions for defending the Catholic Church’s teaching on marriage.
GU Pride and Georgetown University Queer People of Color complained claimed the Love Saxa group violates the Division of Student Affairs’ Student Organization Standards. The GU student newspaper, The Hoya, piled on with an editorial, asserting that Love Saxa, because of its stance on marriage, “fosters intolerance” and therefore “is antithetical to what a university club should be.” The group was also said to be “homophobic.”
The complaint was eventually dropped by the university.
In April 2016, Planned Parenthood CEO Cecile Richards received a standing ovation at GU when she delivered a lecture despite opposition from the archbishop of Washington and pro-life students.
During her speech, Richards commended pro-choice campus groups while also praising abortion activist Wendy Davis, birth control crusader Sandra Fluke, and the millennial generation for what she claimed was its belief in “LGBT rights” and “reproductive rights.”
In May 2012, Georgetown’s Public Policy Institute invited then Health and Human Services (HHS) Secretary Kathleen Sebelius to deliver a commencement speech, despite criticism from Catholics angry about the Obama administration’s healthcare policies. Before and after the address, GU students hostile to Catholic protesters hurled angry insults at the group, standing just outside a campus entrance.
The Exorcist author and Academy Award winner William Peter Blatty said at the time that his alma mater had for the past two decades “invited speakers who support abortion rights and has refused to comply with orders by the late Pope John Paul II for church-affiliated colleges and universities,” according to a Fox News report.
Blatty said inviting Sebelius was the “last straw.”
“I owe much to the Jesuit fathers and to Georgetown University,” Blatty said on his The Father of King Society website, according to the Fox News report. “What I owe Georgetown, however, is nothing as compared to what Georgetown owes to its founders and the Christ of faith.” (source)
The LGBT said they only wanted to be treated as “equals” in society. People gave them what they wanted.
Then the LGBT said they wanted sodomy laws struck down because they were “discrimnatory.” People gave them what they wanted.
Then the LGBT said they wanted to recognize “unions” between them because still, there was not enough given to them. People gave them what they wanted.
Then the LGBT said they wanted “marriage” redefined to fit their lifestyle. Some people resisted, but most eventually gave them what the wanted in the name of “equality.”
Then the LGBT said that people who do not want to serve them for religious reasons must be forced to disobey their consciences on pain of legal penalty. This battle is being fought right now and is losing because the basic agenda has continued to advance and is only a federal court ruling away from allowing homosexuals to demand services from businesses without the ability to legally object.
Then the LGBT said that sexual deviancy must be addressed in children, that parents do not have a right to guide their children concerning homosexuality, and that it is legally punishable. Canada has already submitted to them, and some individual states and municipalities in the USA have as well. Like with the business issue, it is only a court ruling away from becoming law.
Now the LGBT is demanding and being given separate facilities on the basis of their personal lifestyle choices. This comes at the same time that the LGBT is also pressing hard to ban public criticism of homosexuality and their disgusting practices.
There is no end to what can be done to “satisfy” the LGBT because as their actions have shown, there is no end to their demands. Homosexuality has always been about domination of one person over another regardless of time, place, or culture, and what was true of the past is true today. The LGBT want a world of their own which they control for themselves while acting as rulers over others, organizing and moving their lives as a chess player moves pieces on a board.
Nothing that a Christian can do can satisfy them because to partake of the LGBT is to reject the warnings of sacred scripture and tradition while to be a Christian is to reject the LGBT and its fruits.
As far as Georgetown is concerned, for many years now they have willingly embraced all manner of heresy and evils against the Catholic Faith. The fact that they would give private housing to people based on their sexual behavior is not a surprise at all, but it is a reflection and a warning of future changes that will come to American society as the homosexuals are given more power and influence.
In the ancient world, Christians were asked to bow before an image of the emperor and offer a sacrifice. Those who refused were thrown into the coliseums. Just as history repeats itself, so today it is becoming and if not stopped will become that those who refuse to bend over for the demands of the sodomites will find themselves martyred at the hands of these men and their supporters.
