Are Some Catholic Priests Still Abusing Our Young People?

Or, specifically, are the Jesuit institutions of Massachusetts abusing our young people?

MassResistance started wondering when we came across this week's Jesuit Urban Center's newsletter:
--Asking for volunteers to help at the "Youth Pride Celebration" and BAGLY Prom in Boston on May 21;
--Announcing the Center's participation in Boston's Pride Day in June 11;
--Congratulating a gay activist member of their congregation for his promotion to district judge (by none other than Governor Romney)!

Further, the Boston Globe has reported on how Boston College (a Jesuit institution) has caved in to the homosexual agenda over the past few years. First, students are allowed to have a gay/lesbian/straight/etc. club on campus. Then they clamor to include "sexual orientation" in the school's official non-discrimination policy statement. From the Boston Globe:

The university's nondiscrimination statement pledges compliance with laws against discrimination based on race, religion, age, sex, and other protected criteria, but because Massachusetts law includes an exemption for religious institutions with moral objections to homosexuality, the policy doesn't grant the same blanket protection to sexual orientation.

In new language to be added to the statement, BC ''commits itself to maintaining a welcoming environment for all people and extends its welcome in particular to those who may be vulnerable to discrimination on the basis of their race . . . religion, color, age . . . or sexual orientation."

The Boston Globe also reports on various Boston College faculty members (who obviously exert a strong influence on their students), who are now shaking in their boots. They're fearful that their challenges to strict Catholic theology will not be tolerated by the new Pope.

The College of the Holy Cross, another Jesuit school, has been in sync with the homosexual agenda for quite some time. They don't even blink at radical activism on campus, and merrily mount productions of the Vagina Monologues.

Isn't encouraging the homosexual lifestyle among our young people priestly child abuse, in another form?
