Catholic Colleges Allow GLBT Clubs

Georgetown University, a Catholic institution in D.C., has just booted Protestant groups from campus. But they still have a GLBTQ club. Here in Massachusetts, Catholic Boston College and College of the Holy Cross have similar identity crises, allowing GLBT clubs, GLBT staff associations, and productions of feminist/lesbian claptrap like the "Vagina Monologues," while claiming fidelity to Catholic teaching.

Back at Georgetown, GUPride, the LGBTQ club encourages students to "come out" at Georgetown." "GUPride provides educational and support services to the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer (LGBTQ) communities at Georgetown University. We also provide support and referral services to those exploring their sexual orientation and/or gender identity and other individuals sharing an interest in these issues." Its announced activities include participating in "Drag Races" in D.C., " ... one of the city's most highly anticipated annual gay gatherings, with dozens of men and women racing in creative drag while onlooking crowds exceed 5,000."

There is also a Georgetown "Diversity Action Council" whose web pages begin with quotations from The univeristy offers courses in "Womanist Theology," women's studies, and feminist theory. We all know what that includes.

The promotion of homosexuality, bisexuality, and transsexuality apparently is OK at the Catholic colleges, but Protestant Bible study groups are questionable! Imagine the damage they could do.
