Students Try to Get Catholic Priest Banned From a Catholic Center For Being Too Catho


#1

Two gay seniors at George Washington University say they feel alienated because the chaplain at George Washington’s Newman Center rejects homosexuality, and they aren’t going to take it anymore.
The seniors, Damian Legacy and Blake Bergen, have announced a coordinated campaign to rid the campus of the Roman Catholic priest, reports The GW Hatchet, the school’s independent student newspaper.
They also assert that 12 or more students have quit the Newman Center in recent years because they can’t tolerate Father Greg Shaffer’s ardent anti-gay – and, for the record, anti-abortion — beliefs.

Since these two students are not Catholic in any sense they should be ignored.

Legacy and Bergen say they are primarily upset about the counseling Shaffer offers. They say he urges students who have homosexual feelings to lead a life of celibacy.

Why, the very GALL of a Catholic priest counseling Catholic doctine!

Is it too much to ask what homosexuals are doing there in the first place if it isn’t to seek Catholic counseling?
Is it no longer possible to tell people that if you find a place to be a ‘bad fit’ for you that your best bet is to go somewhere else where you do fit in?

The obvious answer being that they were practicing their “tolerance” (provoking an action to use against the priest)…

I’m with the priest on this one.


Meanwhile…at Catholic, Jesuit University** Gonzaga**…the administration has refused to certify the Knights of Columbus as a student campus organization on the grounds that it limits its members to Catholics and men which is not in keeping with the university’s policy. Hmmm…last time I checked Jesuits were exclusively Catholic and male …no??? LOL

You know, I think I’m going to go to a muslim school and try to get the muslim teachers fired… I wonder how well that would go over?

You watch…the university will cave to the students. The Jesuits are not known for upholding orthodox Catholic doctrine–there are few exceptions like this priest.
