cruel & unusual

The Heights, Jesuit-run Boston College's student newspaper, reports on a panel discussion in which gay faculty examined "the myths regarding same-sex parenting," showed pictures of their partners and children, and discussed the hardships that attend a homosexual ménage.

McDargh, when questioned if he had ever experienced prejudice, said that BC is the only Boston-area college not to offer domestic partnership benefits. He further explained that in 25 years of employment at BC, he has never been able to obtain a pass to use the Plex for his partner.

Dr. McDargh is associate professor in the Theology Department.

    Think Dr. McDargh has applied for or received a mandatum? Neither do I.

    There is something strange about my home state. We need help! We need orthodox and holy theologians who live their faith and teach young men and women about the faith handed on to us through the ages from the Apostles. As a priest, I try not to be discouraged by what I read in the newspapers. Moreover, I am reasured in my ministry to the people in my parish and in the community that the Faith will live on. No freakshow theology or ideal is going to defeat the true faith.
